This company alone through the daily press of January 31st gave to the con suming public the most sweeping redaction ever made in tire prices. This established the only genuine Fair-List in existence on non-skid tires today. Goodrich prices were dated February 1st in ordinary course. Other tires were reduced in prices a few days later and the reduction dated back to February 1st. Every real price-reduction on tires has fol lowed the lead of Goodrich. As always, Goodrich policy and Goodrich methods first gave the tire user the benefit cf reduced prices. We lowered tire cost for every tire user when we did that. We were more than con tent to await the verdict And that verdict is over whelmingly and convincingly in favor of Goodrich Tires end of Goodrich Fair-List prices. We knew that the tire user was buying mileage service he was buying vhat the tire3 would do for him, rather than so much bulk rubber and fabric. We knew what our long years of rubber manufacture and tire-making had taught us. We knew we were mak ing tires which had exactly the right amount of rubber and the right quantity of fabric to deliver exactly the right kind cf ccrvicc. We knew ihet too much rubber and too much fabric would be as detrimental to the service of the tires as too little. The tire user knows that Goodrich led in putting tire prices on their just and proper level.

You want miles from your tires. Goodrich Tires are built to deliver mileage at the least cost per mile, and to deliver it with the greatest ease, the greatest comfort and the greatest economy Every ounce of energy, every bit of intelligence, every flash of genius, every atom of efficiency in the whole Goodrich organization has been concentrated on this proposition of making tires which will surely give: the greatest mileage at the least cost. The Goodrich tire user knows that right now, today, vith all the stampede to meet Goodrich prices, Good rich quality is not met and that his dollar buys more tire service in Goodrich tires. "As good as Goodrich" is today the plea. Let us say to you, in all good faith and with every confidenca in the fair-mind cd judgment of the tire user, that no other tire made has in it and of it the experi ence, the know-how and the know-why which govern the selection and the combina tion of the exact quality and quantity of rubber and fab ric which constitute Good rich Tires. Goodrich tor any other) tnooth triads "Goodrich First" is the verdict of the motoring public, which knows that Goodrich first gave it the great benefit of Fair List prices and which demands t increasing thousands of FAMJSTED .

The next time a pretty girl or a well- dressed and agreeable tranger comes into vour place of business soliciting advertising for a time table, or a hotel directory, or a church guide, or any of the other "schemes" which may have been or may be worked on the mer chants of this town, ask the solicitor to sit down for a moment. Then politely question him or her. Ask how many copies are to be issued, how the distribution is to be effected, what guarantee is given that the full number will be printed and distributed as promised. When these questions are answered, as they will be to your satisfaction, for the solicitor is glib with just that kind of answers, ask a few more questions. Ask what amount of money will be collected by the solicitor, bow much the printer will charge for setting up the job, bow much the distribution will cost and how long it will take the solic itor to fill the blank spaces. Then do a little figuring. You will find that the solicitor ex pects to make" at least a clear profit of at least $10 a day out of the town perhape more. The figures will sur prise you. Show your figures to the solicitor, and while he is attempting to hem and haw, tell him that you will spend your $5 to $10 in the newspapers, where every purchaser in your territory will be sure to see your advertisement. It will be discouraging to the grafter. but he will be gone the next day, so you need not worry. Now if you could get the same value for your $5 or $10 that you get in the Possumtrot was on the boom Sat- newspaper, the solicitor would be en- Marriage Licenses. John H. Collier and Lizzie Sadler.
