The .Brockinton Motor Co., of Man

car for Clarendon, Sumter and Lee
counties. Mr. Joe Brockinton invited
some of his friends to go to Charles
ton last Saturday night and ride back
with him in his new demonstration
Cadilac. Those accompanying Mr.
Brockinton were: Ed. Reardon, Sam
Barron, Mr. Revis, Sam Sprott and
the writer. The trip was made with
out mishap of any kind, and was thor
oughly enjoyed. This is a great car
and rides as easy as a palace car.
While we must admit our ignorance
as a judge of machinery, we do be
lieve that there is none better than the
Cadilac. While these cars cost a lit
tle more than the average car, they
are more than worth it. These are
prosperous times, and we look to see
a bunch of Cadilacs running around
here before long.
