Supplement to The harmon County Tribune, Hollis, Okla. March 26, 1915
The Ford is lighter than any other car of its
size and power. Yet stronger, sturdier,
longer lasting. Vanadium steel, that's why.
Vanadium is the hardest,strongest, toughest,
steel made. It is the only steel that is
hard and tough at the same time. It is the
highest priced steel that is used in auto-
mobile construction. Yet the Ford is very
rice. Its quality, terms, price and
st of operation and upkeep, less
3 cents a mile, have made it the
d necessity in town and country.

Pomeroylon, Ky.—In interesting ad-
vices from this place, Mr. A. J. Hughes
writes as follows: "1 was down with
stomach trouble for five (5) years, and
would have sick headache so bad, at
limes, that 1 thought surely I would die.
1 tried different treatments, but they
did not seem to do me any good.
I got so bad, I could not eat or sleep,
rod all my friends, except one, thought I
would die. He advised me to try
Ihedford's Black-Draught, and quit
taking olher mcdic:nes. I decided to
take his advice, although 1 did not have
any confidence in it.
I have now been taking Black-Draught
:or three months, and it has cured me—
liaven't had those awful sick headaches
since 1 began using it.
I am so thankful for what Black-
Draught has done for me."
Thedford's Black-Draught has been
found a very valuable medicine for de-
rangements of the stomach and liver. It
is composed of pure, vegetable herbs,
contains no dangerous ingredients, and
acts gently, yet surely. It can be freely
used by young and old, and should be
kept in every family chest.

Interest In Farm
County Demonstrator Vander-
slice, reports some excellent in-
terest shown by farmers in agri-
cultural work. He has a num-
ber of demonstrators now farm-
ing scientifictly and many farm-
ers are consulting him daily.
He is a farmer himself and you
will appreciate a visit with him.
If you have not already formed
his acquaintance look him up the
next time you are in town and
tell him your farm trouble.
The boys and girls who are
members of the poultry clubs are
promised a better price for their
eggs. It is claimed that by fol-
lowing the instructions given by
our farm agents a better grade
of eggs are produced. The time
is soon coming when eggs will be
sold by weight and quality. This
method is in vogue in many
places now, and it is important
instruction be given along this
line. Mr. Vanderslice will help
you all he can, call on him.
