B. S. Ramsey brought us, on Tues
day, a very fine jar, from the Louis
ville pottery in this county. It is a
three-gallon jar of very excellent
style and finish, and pronounced by
Mr. Dovey, an old pottery man, as
good as anybody's jar. It is from the
first burning of the oven,, and here
after we may expect to be supplied
with jugs, jars, pans, crocks, flower
pots and all L such ware from our
home manufactory. In time we know
itnd feel that handsome and costly
ware will be made there, as we are
satisfied that the clay is of superior
quality and can be utilized for almost
any purpose. At our earliest oppor
tunity we shall write up our notes of
the famous pottery of Louisville; we
only make this short notice this week
that it may get the benefit of our 400
extra circulation in this issue. We
shall keep this fine jar if it does not
get broke as long as any family jar
can be kept, and remember it as the
first of its kind in Kass Kounty.
John Kinser brought into the Jour

Overland Model 83
Things In. Consider in Buviiff a Car!
SERVICE Every Overland Car sold in this vicinit
is still in service.
PRICE No car today gives as much real value for )ie money as
the Overland. You can satisfy yourself on this subject (y comparing
specifications with competitive cars.
UP-KEEP No car was ever built that did not at ime time or
other need some repair. Repairs for the Overland cat be obtained
the same day as ordered, and. at prices far below whatother manu
facturers charge. This fact does not occur to the averate buyer until
he needs some parts and finds it takes from one to threj weeks to get
parts and in many cases at prices two and three times iat the Over
land asks. Automobile factories have declined in - lumbers from
270 in 1 9 1 1 to 1 1 9 in 1 9 1 5. In other words 1 5 1 factoies out of 270
have quit making cars in the last four years, and well Informed men
in the automobile business predict that the change in1 the next two
years will be still more startling, which means that it w 1 be still more
difficult and still more delay on parts for cars that are i ot being man
ufactured at that time.
There is only one manufacturing plant in the world that produces
more cars than the Overland Company, which has increased its pro
duction from 400 cars in 1908 to over 100,000 cars per year now.
If the Overland car had not given lar better average satisfaction to
the buyer in the past it would not have outstripped allita competitors,
manv of which were in the automobile held twice as long.
