every cent is turned ovor to tlio wife,

THE UNIVERSAL CAR
In these busy days quick' transportation from
place to place is of the greatest importance. Time
becomes more valuable every day. We cannot
lengthen the hours, but we can crowd more "doing,"
more business into every day if we have quick and
economical transportation. Tho facility to go and
come quickly is surely in the power of owners of
Ford cars. Always ready, summer and winter, al
ways dependable, always economical, the Ford car
today commands the respect, confidence and ap
preciation of the people, regardless of all distinctions
of class or trade. The Ford i3 the universal car on
merit nlone; it has earned its universal popularity
through giving universal satisfaction in universal
service. You require a Ford car because with i,t
you can make the days more valuable get more
money and pleasure out of your time.
