During the war Uncle Sam raised
the price of postal cards from one
to two cents. This was an advance
of 100 per cent. Now he has re
educed the price from two cents to
one cent but this is only 50 per cent
rotation. He also raised the price
of two cent stamps to three cents.
This was a raise of 50 per cent
-Now he puts the price bank from
three cents to two cents but this is
only 33 per cent reduction. Some
people might think Uncle Sam is

Ford cars are important servants
everywhere. They help the family
enjoy life, bring the pleasures and
advantages of the town within reach
of the farmer and give practical ser
vice every day in country and town.
They require a minimum of atten
tion; any one can run the Ford and
care for it, but it is better to have
repairs and replacements taken
care of by those who are familiar
with the work and have, the tools,
the genuine materials, and skilled
men to do the work promptly. We

A Good Law
One of the very important laws
enacted by a recent legislature was
a bill to prevent the throwing of
glass bottles, barbwire. tacks, or
hedge on public roads or highways.
This bill was introduced and cham
pioned by Representatives Buster of
Livingston county and will go a
long way to stop the practice and
punish the people who violate its
provisions. Auto traffic has had a
great deal trouble with glass bottles
and other like articles dangerous to
the traffic, causing punctures and
blowouts. The act reads as fol
lows: Sec. 1 It shall be unlawful for
any person to throw or place, or
cause to be thrown or placed, any
glass, glass bottles, barbwire. nails,
tacks or hedge on public roads or
highways in this state.
Sec. 2. Any person who violates
any provisions of this act shall be
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor
and upon conviction thereof, shall
be fined the sum of not to exceed
one hundred ($100) dollars, or by
imprisonment in the county jail
for a period not to exceed (1) year,
or both such fine and imprisonment
may be imposed.

we have had presented to us many
of the most practical reasons for
not saving. It becomes increasing-!

said in favor of blowing in all of
our money while we can buy some
thing with it.

But groceries will not keep quite
so long. We must resign ourselves
to eating as much as we can con

the new wealth produced annually,
which he terms "net income." This
