ated federialI narcotic law has directed
atenitioll to the prevaleell( of tile
(Irlig-taking habit. in this Cotintry. In
the hirge Iorthern cities where statis
ties on such matters have been more
careflIly compiled, the nunnber of opi
Im)I and cocaine users was found to be
tremendous. While a great deal has
not been printed about it In this state,
the fact is, nevertheless, that opiii
and cocaine are used on a very large
scale, especially among the poorer
eleaient of the population.
The narcotic law is not intended to
deprive habitues of tle drugs tihey
have become slaves to, because this
wolid inl -some cases caise great suf
fering and even dent i. Its ob
jt1c't is to prevent tile spread of the
ding habit among those not yet addiet

An Interview With Mr. Ford
The following interview was
given by Mr. Ford to one of the*
aggressive Ford agents, who re
turned to his home and gave it to
his territory in the following news
+ This is the most important advertisement+
I ever caused to be published-.-road
every word---then marvel!
Oi a personal visit to Mr. Icnry Ford, I broached
the subject of a possible August rst rebate.
The Ford Company auniiced last year-as you will
remember-that if their total sales reached 300,000 cars
between August 1, 1914, and August 1, 1915, each purchas
er during that period would receive back a refund of $40.
oo to $6o.oo.
"Mr. Ford," I suggested "Is there anything I can say
to our people with regaid to the Ford Company's 300,000
car rebate plan?"
"We shall sell the 300,000," was the quiet reply
"and in 1 i months, a full month ahead of August ist!"
"Then the refund is practically assured."
"Yes-barring the totally unexpected. We are 50,
+ 000 to 7 5,O0o cars behind orders today. Factory and +
+ branches are sending out i,8oo daily."
I then said to Mr. Ford: "If I could make a definite
+ refund statement we would increase our sales 500 cars."
"You may say," was Mr. Ford's deliberate and signifi
cant reply to this--"You may say that we shall pay back
to each purchaser of a Ford car between August 1, 1914,
and August 1, 1915, barring the unforeseen, the sum of $50.
You may say that I authorized you to make this statement!"
What can I add to the above? $15,
,O000.0. cash coming back to Ford owners!
+ And to prospective Ford owners up to
+ August 1, 1915, it actually means: Ford
Touring Cars for $490---less the $50 re
+ bate! Ford Runab uts for $440m-less the
What is there eft for me to say?,
