These fairs are held under the direction of |he Women's Institute and uie always a grand success. The present fair was one of the most successful ever held. About 300 entries were made in the vegetable department and nearly 200 in the flowers. One would have to travel many miles to find more beautiful flowers and more perfect and appetizing vegetables. The. ripe tomatoes were among the best entries as also was the celery. Most every child In the town takes an interest in I lie fair and the competition Is very keen. The collection of vegetables grown by boyB under la years were awarded as foilowa:--Rend Bennett, 1st; Cliff Merkley, 2nd; Percy I'oulsen, I'.rd.

The Universal Car There are more than two million and a quarter Ford ears in service today. Practically one-half of all the cars on Canadian highways are Ford cars. Tho Ford Is the lightest cir for Its power made -and lightness Is an absolute essi ntial for economy In maintenance and for comfort In riding. It weighs several hundred pounds less than the ordinary car of the same power and carrying, capacity. It puts more tire surface on tho ground per pound of car than any other. And it,, lightness is also a big safety fatter. Lightness minimizes the cost of upkeep |,y reducing the wear and tear on the tires-by giving more mileage per gallon of gasoline-and by lessening the strain and stress upon the car itself. Tiros for Fard cats are comparatively Inexpen-aive. because large ones are not naiulvod-and they give maximum service because tho car Is lightest. Ford owners have a minimum of tire troubles and other expenses and lluit'a a big factor to consider in the buying of a car. It is surprisingly low In price-- nml surprisingly high in value-because it is produced upon a scale so gigantic its' to reduce the cost of lit.inil liic.ture and distributing to a minimum. There is one outstanding reason why the Ford car so far outsells all others.
