new tire prices
-lowest cost mileage ever known
Effective July 20th, Goodrich establishes a revised
price list that is a base line of tire value. It gives the
motorist the buying advantage of knowing that what
ever size tire he selects is bf the same quality - the
Goodrich one'quality standard. It gives him the long*
est mileage, the most satisfactory service and the high
est quality his money can buy. Results will prove that
it is impossible to buy tire mileage at lower cost.
Think of being able to buy
at such prices as these:
30 x 3| CL
30 x 3i S. B.
32 x 3i S. B.
32 x 4} S. B.
33 x 4* S. B.
34 x 4* S. B.
35 x 4\ S. B.
No extra charge for excite tax, Thit tax it paid by Goodrich
New base line prices are also effective
on ?oodrich Fabric Tires
32x3$ S.B. Safety
32x4 S. B. Safety
33x4 S. B. Safety
34x4 S. B. Safety
No extra charge for excite tax. Thu tax it paid by Goodrich
This revised price list affords the motorist as
definite a guide to tire prices as Goodrich
Tires are the definite standard of tire quality.

SCHOOL HOOK PRICE INCREASED
Fifty Per Cent of Text Hooks For

Although tho price of school books
was among tho few things that were
not affected by tho war, the contract
between the publishers and tho Stato
board of education has expired, and
prices have now increased 100 per
cont, it was stated yesterday by M.
C. Barton, County Superintendent of
Education. Although lt is regretted
by both tho Stato and county depart
ments that no lower terms could bo
secured, tho prosont prices wore the
lowest offered, and will hold for five
years, Mr. Barton explained.
In order to avoid confusion, it was
pointed out by Superintendent Bar
ton that prices wore printed on the
inside of tho covpr, and no book
doalor was allowed iindor tho State
law to chargo a greater price. Tho
oxchango pricos aro also stampod on
tho fly leaf, dealers being required to
glvo credit to tho amount stipulated
in exchango for books discarded
through tho now adoption of courses
accepted by tho educational board.
Tho Stato board saw flt to discard

In sufficient, quantities to supply tho

.CAR0?<1NAS JOINT I/AND HANK."
Now Banking Foatuvo Will Meet De
mands Not Now Supplied.
Wo aire glad to announce that tho
?FirBt Carolinas Joint Stock 'Land
Bunk, with former Congressman A.
F. Lover, until recently a momber o?
the Federal Farm Loan Board, ns
president, and with offices at Colum
bia, S. C., is to do business in this
county. This fact became known
when lt was learned that Sholor &
Hughs? of Walhalla, had boco/ho
connected with this institution as
abstract attorneys, and for the time
being as its local representative In
Oconee. Mr. Hughs was called to Co
lumbia last week to go over tho mat
ter, andT when asked for a statement j
as to the methods of operation and
terms of loans, he said:
"The 'First Carolinas Joint Stock
Land Bank is chartered under the
Federal Farm Loan Act and is op
erated under tho same Federal super
vision as the Federal Farm Loan
Board. Tho present paid-in, capital
stock ls $250,000 and $25,000 sur
plus. Tho bank operates very much
along the same linos as does tho
Fedoral Land Bank of Columbia and
tinder tho same supervision. It makes
loans only on improved agricultural,I
lands. It does not loan on city prop
erty. Tho proceeds of those loans
must bo applied for general agricul
tural purposes. The loans are made
direct to tho borrower, and the bor
rower is forbidden to tako stock In
the bank. Any person is eligible for
a loan through this institution if, In
addition to his other work, he is at
tho samo time actually farming.
"Tho bank will accept applica
tions for loans from $1,000 to $25,
000. y Loans cannot be made In ex
cess of fifty per cent of tho appraised
val?e of tho land mid 20 per cont of
the appraised Insurable valuo of tho
buildings, such appraisals being made
by officials of the government. Tho
interest rate is six per cent, payable
semi-annually, to which ls added one
per cent" to amortizo or kill off the
debt over a poriod of thirty-three
years. In other words, for seven per
cont Interest and principal aro paid
in thirty-three years and tho debt is
discharged. Repayment of principal
may be made nt any'time under regu
lations issued by .the Farm Loan
Board. Tho borrower through this
bank is responsible alono for his own
debt. There aro no commissions that
may bo /charged under the law, nor
are there renewals.
"We have become connected with
this institution because of tho finan
cial strength of the men back of lt,
notablo among whom aro J. Pope
Matthews, president of tho Palmetto
National Bank, Columbia, S. (J.J W.
B. Drake, Jr., president of tho Mer
chants' National Bank of Raleigh, N.
C. ;A. W. McLean, wealthy planter
and banker of North Carolina; Tho
mas S? Lumpkin, outstanding law
yers of the State, and Mr. Lover, tho
president, whose activities in behalf
of agriculture for twenty years aro
known to every one. Wo feel confi
dent that this institution ls going to
serve a most useful purpose in help
ing the farmers of Oconee to pay off
on the instalment plan tho losses suf
fered in the recent depression. Tho
Fedoral Land Bank and this bank are
acting in tho closest harmony to take
care of all the needs of agriculture
in the county, and this one fills a
need that the Fedoral Land Bank can
not quite reach."

ty THE NEED OF KNOWLEDGE ty
ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty
It ls the lack,of knowledge that
leads Into trouble. To express lt an
other way, Ignorance breeds disaster.
lt has become a trllo saying, ac
cepted In the world as expressing a
truth, "Knowlcdgo ls Power." Mon
have taken up this proverb and'llck
od lt to pieces and examined every
part of it. They say that knowledge
is power, provided tho knowlcdgo is
coupled with the energy to, apply lt.
They do not think of tho fact that
knowledge may amount to power be
cause it may restrain action that ono
might try io take or havo others to
take if it were not for the wisdom
which causes a holding back.
Ignorance IcadB to trouble. Even
tho motorist who gets stuck along
tho way gots into the miro because
he had no advance knowledge that
the mire was there; or if he knew
lt was there he was ignorant of tho
powers of his machine as to contend
ing with the forces of this particular
We do or we do not do, according
to the manner of our information.
Every man claims that he will do
what he thinks is host for him and
his. He only means that ho acts
within his discretion within tho lim
its of tho knowledge that ho has. If
lie does not know, ho has to go by
guess. Ho does tho host he can In
tho consideration of such things as
he knows or thinks he knows in
that particular instance.
Ono man wo know has said that
a man is not worth anything beyond
his experience in any emergency or
calling in Ufo. Dy this ho meant that
a man is worth according to that
with which ho is dealing, and of tho
things concerned in his action, what
ever it may be. By experience a man
learns and his knowledgo is priceless
both to himself and to others con
corned with him.
We havo seen one man who pre
tended to know, take hold of a set
of things under certain circumstances
and make a completo failure. We
hoard him lay tho blame, not on him
self, but on some defect in the things
he had to work with, or upon some
circumstance that came in by a force
beyond him. Wo have seen another
man who perhaps did not make as
great pretensions take hold of the
s?fme things, and muter tho same cir
cumstances, and carry his plans to
a complete success. Failures aro al
ways laid to other things besides the
:mnn who has been concerned in
bringing thom a* out. _
Wo havo seen men who found
fault with a machino and would say
that it was a mistake to have made
it; that it was faulty and could not
be used for tho purpose recommend
ed. Other men have taken the same
machine and made out of lt and with
lt ono of 'ho greatest of successes.
Thus it goes on in every walk of life.
Success is duo to tho amount of In
formation, care, skill and wisdom ap
plied In any given thing. If actions
aro ruled by lgnoranco, both man
and his ox always wind up In tho
ditch. Whore things aro undertaken
and done In *he light of knowledgo,
success usually crowns tho efforts of
