THE UNIVERSAL CAR
In busy cities or the country road, the Ford is a
favorite among motor cars. There are strong reasons
why half the buyers of America demand Ford cars.
They have proved their worth under the most trying
conditions in all parts of the world. People buy
Ford cars because they know what they have done
and will do. They have become one of the every
day necessities. Will you not place your order for
one at one? '

said: "My homo la ln Texas, but I
registered In Lincoln county. I can't
toll you how lonoly and badly I felt
leaving for war with scarcely an ac
quaintance to say good-bye. Thla
meeting has made mo feel that hund
reds of people In Lincoln county stand
ing back of men and other boys who
go, and this farewell has made mo feel
Hko another man. Cheerfulness has
taken the place of lonlinesa." Anoth
er said: "I am leaving a young wife
who must to a certnln extent, nt
least, take caro of horBelf , This has
worried mo greatly, but If I can feel
that Bhould sho meet with serious
troublo tho Homo Guarda will be
friend her It will take an awful load
off my mind." Ho was assured that
this was part of tho objects and the
duty of tho Hornet Guards.
Sunday a soldlor boy from an east
orn camp enroute homo to Cheyonno
on a furlough, reached North Platto
penniless; he had undor-osttmated

up nmong tho Guard members and
tho soldier boy sent on his way happy.
These instances illustrate tho good
