A Ford Car Takes the Place of all These Things WHEN you own a Ford you can do away with many articles that are a source of continuous expense to the man who still drives a horse. For instance, not only your driving-horse and buggy, but the single harness, blankets, whips, currycombs, brushes, horse-shoes, pitch-forks, feed-bins, etc. In their place you have a speedy, dependable, dignified, roomy Ford Car-complete in itself. It is vastly superior to the narrow, cramped buggy t�at travels so slowly. Ansrwhen a Ford is standing idle it does not eat three meals a day, and it requires no "looking after." ' A Ford will save you time, trouble, and money. It is the utility car for the busy farmer and his family. TEE UNIVERSAL CAR Ranabou' Touring---- Coupe ..... Sedan - -Chassis - - - - .

WON'T INCREASE PRICE OF WHEAT Winnipeg, Apr. 3.-According to the Free Press evening bulletin there is a general opinion that tbe fixed price for wheat will not be changed for the 1918 crop either in Canada or in the United States.
