Belleview, Oct. 20. Mr. John F.

eagerness to buy a Liberty Bond, say saying

Mr. Peter H. Hekkema, the meat

from Holland in our midst, says that
he has $50 to spare to help whip

friends. From train No. 3 Friday
came Mr. and Mrs. E. C. WTiite, with
little Miss Maye from Pittsburg, Pa.
Friday night on train No. 1 Mr. and
Mrs. W. S. Cogswell blew in, and it
can be safely said that the game sea season

The Masons will hold their usual

will be plenty a doing.
Mr. James N. Shedd, seized with
the desire to do something or some somebody,
body, somebody, packed his kit of tools, bought
a railroad ticket and now he is swing swinging

pushing a plane up in the big burg of
Jacksonville. His side partner, Mr.

packed his kit and has gone to the

The seriousness of the situation
confronting this country does not
seem to be appreciated. A person
could wax eloquent on the subject
and lecture a bunch of persons for
one hour. At the finish the listeners
would quietly ask "what are you giv giving

impress the matter upon you in a
place that it strikes you three times
per day. I have sold thousands of
pounds of white meat at 10 cents per
pound; today white meat at 40 cents
per pound makes your dollar of yes yesterday
terday yesterday only worth 25 cents today. We
have sold tons of broken rice at 2c.
per pound; today broken rice is scarce
at 9c. and 10c. per pound. Sugar has
sold in Belleview at 5c. per pound; to today
day today it sells at 12 c, and I read in
today's papers that sugar is selling
in New York city at 15c. per pound,
and the stores will not sell one cus customer
tomer customer more than one or two pounds
at a time. We formerly sold 20 to 25
sacks of potatoes per month, at 20c 20c-and
and 20c-and 25c. per peck; today 50c. pre prevails
vails prevails as the price. Do you get me?
What I am trying to impress upon
you is: if there was plenty of food in
the country, prices would be lower.
And what I do .want to impress upon
your mind is that no matter if prices
stay as they are or go higher, there
is not enough grub in the world to go
arourid. Believe me or believe me not,
you had better. The government is
doing its very best thru Mr. Hoover,
the food controller, to awaken peo people

To the Mothers of Boys in France
The following paragraphs will be
interesting to the mothers whose
boys have gone to France. They are
the words of the machine gunner. Ar Arthur
thur Arthur Guy Empey, who served for a
year and a half with the British
army in France. At the end of that
time his cheek was crushed nearly to
pulp, but the young American sur surgeon,
geon, surgeon, a Harvard unit man, put a piece
of another man's rib in place of his
smashed bone and now only a little
jagged red scar remains after the re remarkable
markable remarkable operation. The New York
Times shows a picture of Empey at
the Amreican woman's hospital near
Paignton, England, where his face
was practically made over. His nurse
stands beside him. This nurse is a
Marion county woman and in the
county at present. She does not like
publicity, but possibly many can
guess her name.
This hero is the author of the new
book, "Over the Top," which has just
arrived at the library. He says to
American mothers:
"I'd like to tell every mother in
America that, no matter what her boy
is when he goes into the war, he'll be
a manlier man when he comes out of
it. He will be more self-reliant, more
courageous; a great quality of justice
and fair play will have been instilled
into him. And the army is a great
leveler; the highbrow, the roughneck,
the wise and the otherwise are all on
the same plane, fighting for the same
cause, and all fighting for you. The
coal heaver's son and the million millionaire's
aire's millionaire's son, marching side by side,
sharing the same life, are in just the
same danger together; a German bul bullet
let bullet is no respecter of social position.
"Then there is the Y. M. C. A. You

him his loved ones, but it gives him

Mary, who spent three years of her
young life in prison for a crime of
which she was innocent. When she
came out she was broken in spirit and

ing out of the bottom of one of the

said iron pipe, the barrels were easily
pumped full of water, ready for fu
ture business. Mr. Tremere then
went to Jacksonville and brought a
piece of rubber hose, some connec connections
tions connections and a garden hose nozzle, and
came back. He proudly connected up
the contraption. This garden hose
nozzle will shoot a straight stream,
at least two feet high or by giving it
a slight twist it will shoot the water
out in a spray, so that Mr. Tremere
could go out in that bathhouse and
either imagine he was a house afire,
by giving it the straight stream, or
revel in the luxurious thought that Jig
was a rose bush and spray himself
accordingly. So when the hose was
connected up, he proudly pranced over

he replied that he was going to con

made the attempt. The blamed thing
would not connect, and a stream of
water ran down his sleeves and down
his clothes and out he came, sopping
wet. By this time there was about
three or four inches of water on the
ground. Bravely he attacked again,

of the iron pipe. Then climbing down
he made the connection without any
further mishap. And upon pulling
the cork out of the top end of the

Mr. and Mrs. John Dozier and their
daughter, Mrs. Sylvan McElroy of

from a most delightful week's trip in
their Maxwell car to the east coast,
visiting" Fort Pierce, Palm Beach, Mi Miami

places of interest between. They were
joined by Mrs. A. J. Beck at Fort
" Mr, Dozier says he has never taken

. he made the distance from Miami to
Orlando in one day. His entire ex expense
pense expense for the operation of the car
for the 841 miles traveled, with three
passengers all the time and four
part of the time, was $11.40. The
H gasoline consumed was 38 gallons, at
.an average price of 30c. per gallon,
v and the average mileage was 22 miles
per gallon for the entire trip.








Up to midnight, September 12th, during a period of
8 J months, we sold and delivered to tire dealers more
United States Tires than we sold to dealers during tho
entire 12 months of 1916.

This phenomenal sales increase was made notwithstanding ccr
epoch-making sales increases of 1916 over 1915.
These recoid-breaking sales increases of 1917 over 191 6 and
our record-breaking salec increases of 1916 over 1915 definitely
finally prove three facts:
1. The supremacy of United, States Tires.
2. The fact that 'the vast army of automobile owners who used
United States Tires in 1916 are using them in 1917 on the sheer
merit of their experience.
3. The fact that another vast army oif automobile owners have been
won over to the use of United States Tires in 1917 on the sheer
