FORD
THE UNIVERSAL CAR
Announcement Regarding Prices of
Ford Cars
For the information of the buying public and the guidance of
those who may be looking for a further reduction in Ford prices,
we reproduce herewith a letter just received from the Ford'Motor
Company, Detroit, Michigan, regarding the stability of the price
of Ford Automobiles and trucks.
"8everal inquiries have recently come to us concerning the likelihood of
another reduction in the price of our cars, and as these inquiries no doubt
emanate from prospective purchasers, we want to state again with greater
emphasis that Ford cars are already being sold at a figure actually below
cost, and for an indefinite period another reduction or change in design is
entirely out of the question and not-at all contemplated.
"We believe the public will be fair enongh to fully appreciate the
frankness of the above, when they consider the extent of our recent price
out which was, in fact, the equivalent of several reductions in one, in qur
desire to contribute toward satisfying their demands for lower living cotsa,
notwithstanding our sacrifice in ma'rketing our cars at a loss until we Are
able to materially reduce present coste through lower material prices and
greater manufacturing efficiency. While we have, of course, made some
progress in bringing down operating costs, we still have a long way to go
before any thought can be given to further reductions in present car prices,
so we have no hesitancy in making these open statements to acquaint you
with the true situation.
"You can, therefore, give assurance to prospective purchasers of Ford
cars that now Is their real opportunity to buy below cost and obtain delivery.
Everyone is familiar with the heavy demand for Ford cars in the Spring and
this year will be no exception. Spring business is already rapidly accnmu
lating, so that many who desire Ford care will be obliged to wait perhaps
until mid-suenmmer for delivery, causing considerable inconvenience and poe
sible financial lose, particularly to commercial customers.
"We expect you to protect the interests of prospective buyers In your
community by placing these facts before them."
Yours very truly,
FORD MOTOR COMPANY,
W. A. RYAN, Manager of Sales,
Motor Sales & Service Co., Franklinton, La.

THE "OLD RELIABLE"
THEDFORD'S BLACK-DORAUGHT
White Haired Alabama Lady Says She Has Seen Medicines Come
and Go But The "Old Reliable" Thedford's Black-Draught
Came and Stayed.
Dutton, Ala.-In recommending Thed
ford's Black-Draught to her friends and
neighbors here, Mrs. T. F. Parks, a well
known JacksonCot'nty lady, said; "I am
getting up in years; my head is pretty
white. I have seen medicines and reme
dies come and go but the old reliable
came and stayed. I am talking of Black
Draught, a liver medicine we have used
for years-one that can be depended up
on and one that will do the work.
"Black-Draught will relieve indigestion
and constipation if taken right, and I know
for I tried It. It Is the best thing I have
ever found for the full, uncomfortable
feeling after meals. Sour stomach and
sick headache can be relieved by taking
Black-Draught. It aids digestion, also
ssists the liver in throwing off impuri
ties. I am glad to recommend Black
Draught, and do, to my friends and
neighbors."
Thedford's Black-Draught is a stand
ard household remedy with a record of
over seventy years of successful use.
Every one occasionally needs something
to help cleanse the system of impurities.
Try Black-Draught. Insist upon Thed
ford's, the genuine.
