LOW SYRUP PRICES -
Tampa, Fla., Jan. 23.-The low
price for cane syrup and the over:pro
duction of sugar cane and sorghum is
responsible for a boom in the moon
shine liquor industry in several bec
tions of Florida, according to A. L.
Allen, Federal Prohibition Director
for this State, in a statement Vioday.
"Last year our farm crops were
small, except the cane crop, which
was larger than usual," said Mr. Al
ten. "One year ago this month cane
syrup was selling. at) $1.50, a gallon:
This year, 4ith -double the' crop eo
ple in West Florida have to? me,
they are offered only 35 and 40 cents
a gallon for their syrup.
"Many of these people' in those cir
cumstanees have found the partig of
the ways and have sold their syrup to
a bootlegger neighbor or have used
it themselves in making moonshine.
Only three gallons of syrup are neces
sary to make a quart of liquor. The
market value of the syrup is $1.05 to
$1.20 while the quart of moonshine
will sell for $5 to $6."
The pension board of honor. will
meet in the office of the Probate Judge
on February the 6th at 11 o'clock A.

Trueks Over Previous Yest.
Retail sales of Ford-cars, trucks
and Fordson tractors have again ex
ceeded the, million' mark for the year
1921, according to a statement given
out today by: the Ford Motor Com
. The Ford' factory and assembly
plan production. figures reached a jo
tal of 1,000,740 car's trucks and trac
tors for the year, with retail sales by
iealera approximating 1,093,000,
which- in the United States alone sur
-passed the 1P20 retail sales record by
10?,218 ford cars and trucks.
The Ford Company says' the outlook
for 1922 is decidedly optimistic. In
fact 'concrete evidences already 'exist
in that car and truck retail sales for
December 1921 exceeded December
1920 sales by almost 25 per 'cent, and
Fordson tractor retail sales 'for the
same. periods show an increase -of
over 100 per cent for December 1921,
as well as an increase over the total
tractor sales for the month of Novem
These facts seem to indicate that
not only are the farmers buying more
freely, but that the general public is
becoming more responsive and recep
Another point brought out by a
comparison of production figures for
the past two years shows that Ford
enclosed cars are gaining in popular
ity,-as 23 per cent of the 1921 produc
tion were Sedans and Coupes as
against a total of 18 per cent for the
Recent reductions in Ford car and
truck prices brought them to a new
,Tow level. The Touring car now sells
for $348, the Runabout for $319, the
Coupe for $580, the Sedan for $645,
the Chassis for $285, and the Truck
for $430, all f. o. b. Detroit.
This is the fourth price cut in the
past sixteen months. During that
time the price of the Touring Car
alone has been tut from $575 'to
$3481 a reduction of 40 per cent. Re
ductions on some of the other types
have been even greater.
The Ford Company believes that
this reduction, while not, a large one,
is especially important at this time
as it should go a long way toward
stabilizing market conditions.
Ford is giving employment at pre
sent to approximately 40,000 men in
his main plant at Detroit, the impor
tance of which is emphasized when
consideration is given to the e fact
that nearly 20 per cent of the city's
population is directly dependent upon
the Ford Motor Company.-Adv.
