PLACE YOUR ORDER NOW FOR A FORD
No eheaper ear will be made in two or three years. The following letter just re
eeived from the Ford Motor Co. is self-explanatory:
"On account of recent newspaper articles and the
many rumors circulating over the country concerning
a proposed new car to be manufactured by Mr. Henry
Ford, we believe it advisable to inform our dealers gen
erally, in order that you may intelligently and uniform
ly answer all inquiries.
"In the first place, a large majority of the reports a
float are greatly distorted and exaggerated. A new car
may be manufactured but as to when it will be manu
factured we are not in position to say, except that we
do know a new car could not possibly be designed, test
ed out, manufactured and marketed in quantities un
der two or three years' time.
"There is nothing, however, in de fin bout the
present Ford car. There are over threr ,ion in daily
use at the present time; and every one of our dealers,
through their continued enthusiastic efforts;, can dis
pose of our product as rapidly as manufactured. We in
tend to continue the production of the reliable Model T
as aggressively as in the past, and feel that we have the
co-operation of our entire sales organization n forcibly
impressing upon prospective buyers the exceptional
high quality and dependability of the present Ford car,
backed up by the entire strength of an organization al
"Our factory and assembly plant production is being
pushed to the limit, with the thought in mind of reach
ing our normal capacity of three thousand cars per day
as quickly as possible, in order that the demands of
prospective buyers might be met to the fullest possible
Better place your order now for a Ford car. We have a large number on hand and in transit, but we have orders
?S ahead for these cars. The sooner you place your order the sooner you will get a car.

New McCormick Binders
The grain crop will be good in Edgefield county and a

want binders will be unable to get them. The supply
is limited, as our allotment for this territory is only six
machines, and unless orders are soon placed for these
we will lose them. They will be transferred to some
other territory where the demand is greater. We can
