the two men were taken before Judge

the case was continued to the next day j

Our popular mail carrier on R. F.
D. No. 1, by name J. Russel Alerril,
took his aunt Airs. N. Burger of Clay
City, Indiana, on the route with him
last Saturday. Something happened to
the team. We suppose that it was an
auto. On one of the horses piled on
to the other, the tongue broke, Mrs.
Burger was lucky to escaie without
serious inju', but Russel sustained an
injury to his walking aparatus that is
causing him a considerable amount of
inconvenience. Russel obtained a new
uuJ?l?y tngue of Tom O'Conner and
finished his trip, Mrs. Burger staying
pluckil with him through the trip on
our school. He surely is a worker in
behalf of the schools of the county.
At the close of the teacheis' conven
tion at David City last week the teach
ers presented him a handsome rocking
chair as a tok.en of their respect for
him and on behalf of his labors amongst
them. The presentation address was
made by the state superintendent.
Monday afternoon the two daughters
of Mr. and Mrs. D. P. Burch, Gladys
and Lisabelle, went out to the Jacobs
school house to bring in their sister
Ruth, who is now teacher in that dis
trict. On their way home when close
to the B. and M. crossing, near the
ranch the team the girls were driving, j
which was a pair of colts, became
frightened at a motorcycle, which was
steered by some man from David CityJ
whose name we did not learn. The
girls were thrown to the ground, the
buggy smashed into kindling wood
and the most shameful part of it was,
that the heartless motor man, or we
might say, the the cowardly wretch,
left the girls in the ditch and went on
his way as if nothing had happened.
Crosher Loveless went out and con
veyed the girls to town. Gladys was
taken to Dr. Fledderman's office. One
of her hands was considerably bruised;
but otherwise she was not injured.
On side of Lisabelle's face was con
siderably bruised and blackened. The
girls were lucky by escaping as they
did: but such heartless motor drivers
ought to be punished.

WHO BUYS FORD CARS?

After four weeks of hard work on
the Thomas meadows northwest of
Silver Creek, H. J. Brian, wife and
help left the place yesterday for their
farm in Folk county, near Columbus.

Is the possible sale of Ford cars limited to that portion of humanity
unable or unwilling to pay more than the Ford price for an Automobile?
That's the question upon which the sale of many a Ford car rests. The answer is, No; decidedly, No!.
Men who can afford to pay many times more than $830 for an automobile, buy the Ford for their personal
use. They are sound, sensible, long-headed business men; men who have to be shown that quality is there,
as well as low price. They form a large proportion of Ford buyers.
Gaston Plaintiff, New York selling agent of the Ford, can name many New York millionaires owning
Ford cars. Tom Hay can give you a list of Chicago's swelldom owning this modest-priced car. Cannon Ball
Rice of Seattle tells many a tale of wealthy westerners who dip lightly into their bank balance to buy "the
car that got to Seattle first"
Let us tell you something It's nine times as hard to sell an $830 Ford to a man with only $830 to
spend as it is to sell to the man who has more the man who could, if he would, pay more.
Now don't throw down your hat, and up your hands, and holler, "Of course, he can afford to be
stung." The wealthy buyers of Ford cars never secured wealth by being stung. They don't spend money
unwisely. They know the value of a dollar. They don't care what their friends think to see them driving a
low-price car. It's motor value, service and satisfaction they are after. They know they get the maximum
of value, service and satisfaction in the Ford at $830.
We are now delivering the 1912 model Ford. Naturally it is a better car than the 1911 Ford, because
progress is the standing maxim of the Ford factory, but the same old price will prevail.
