TAluHlUKEAU TO HAVE' "jQlJOR
DEPARTMENT AND EXCHANGE
County Agent Keljogg has announc
ed that ho will maintain at Fapn
Bureau Headquarters, a list of farm
help which Is wanting work and a list
I r . . . . . ...J 1 . 1 T-r ......
in lunuurs who waui. neip. tic will
also from time to. time Issue bulletins
(if what the farmers wish to sell and
what they wish to buy or trade. These
will bo practical helps for tho farmer
and in otlier places havo proved to be
of great value.
To all our people, who want normal times and normal business to come buck for the benefit
of all of us think on this. Applied to my business, it" is a fact that there are many people today
who want and can afford to buy a good motor car, such as Dodge Brothers have always made. To
such, I would advise the immediate purchase of the model which pleases them, with an absolute
assurance that they are getting full value for every dollar they spend.
It is a known fact that that arelwo cars today, concerning whose quality there is no ques
tion. One of these cars is the product of Dodge Brothers and the other a car costing over three
times as much money, both are in a class by themselves in sales, price and quality. (These two
cars were given the added distinction of exclusive purchase by the U. S. Government and are
now the standard cars for all government uses in their class.)
There is nothing to bo gained by waiting, if the convenience, comfort or pleasure of your
self or family demand the service of a new and dependable automobile. If you need and can af
ford it, Buy Now, as holding back never made for progress. If each will do what he can, the
wheels of industry will start again, railroad men, fanners and business men will all be benefited,
as only when the wheels of trado are revolving, can each of us prosper.
,Buy safely buy carefully buy well known products of good reputation, and from an estab
lished dealer, where service is always available. We submit the merits of Dodge Brothers cars
and our willingness and ability to-properly service them In the hands of their ownors-
Good Cars. Fair Prices. Ready Service:
