When the new political editor of
tho Hartford Republican . put on
such a patronizing, almost paternal,
air lust week he so frightened tbe
untried neophyte at tli Herald desk
that he. can hardly sufficiently con
trol IiIh tumultuous emotions if awe
and misgiving in the face ot such
ilire threats. However he hopes
by next wfek to mfTi lently recover

trussing up the tatter's "goat"

Recent disasters, misfortunes and
biKuveinents, here at home an well
us In other sections of the country,
bring one cheering and compensat

is that reu! brotlicrlinesx, human
kindness and sympathy underly all
the apparent nurface hardness of
this so-cilled materialistic age. In
spite of the fact that we sometime
uppcar to be calloused by money
grubbing, pleasure-chuhlng. Bullish

when one of our fellows or thou
sands of them fee) the heavy hand
of misfortune, all ellishnns is for

and sympathy. May It ever be so
for this would be a poor life Indeed
without tbe "milk of human kindness."

Mr; Edsel B. Ford, President
of the Ford Motor Company,
makes the following annouce-ment:
"We are making another reduction in the prices of
Ford cars and Ford trucks, effective today. The new prices
average $70.00 under former prices, and are the lowest at
which Ford cars and trucks have ever been sold.
List prices, F. O. B. Detroit, are now as follows:
- - ... AMOUNT OF
NEW PRICE OLD PRICE . REDUCTION
Chassis $295 $345 $ 50
Runabouts .$325 $370 $45
Touring Car $355 $415 $60
Truck $445 $495 $ 50
Coupe $595 $695 $100
Sedan $660 $760 $100
"This is the third price cnt during the paEt twelve months. On September 22, 192(J,
the price of the Ford Touring Car was reduced from $575 to $440; June 7th to $415. and

proportionate reductions have beeu made iu all other types. One year ago the price of

products in order that we may give'them to the public at the lowest . possible price, and
by doing that, we feel that we are doing the one big thing that will help this country
into more prosperous times. People are interested in prices, ai;d are buying when prices

' One noteworthy feature of our sales is the increased demand for Ford trucks and
cars for salesmen. This class of commercial business has been gradually increasing the
past sixty days and we interpret it as a good sign of improvement in general business.
