ANNOUNCEMENT of Interest to MILLIONS of FAMILIES "1 will build a oar for the muliifude" Said Henry Ford in 1903--Read how the fulfillment of that prophecy it now made possible through the Ford Weekly Purchase Plan For many years it has been Henry Ford's per. sonal ambition to make the Ford the universal car to put it within the reach of the millions of people who have never been privileged to enjoy the bene fits of motor car ownership. During the past fifteen years over 7,500,000 Ford cars have been placed in the hands of retail customers--more than a millilon and a half of them within the past twelve months--and yet there ere still millions of families who are hopefully looking forward to the day when they can own a Ford. And now the way is open. Under the terms of this plan you can select your Ford Car, set aside a small amount each week and you will be surprised how soon you will own it. In the meantime your money will be safely deposited to yon" credit where it will draw interest. Think it over. Five dollars will start an account. The whole family can participate in it- father, mother, brothers and sisters each doing a little. Why not start today. Stop in and talk it over with your local Ford dealer. He will be glad to fully explain the details of the plan and help you ge started toward the ownership of a Ford car. / Ford Motor Company, Detroit, Michigan. WOOD₯1H[ HOTOI00 (0. THOS. A.

A Clean, Clear-Cut Analysis of the Salary Paid the State ...;, Revenue Agent : For the fiscal years, 1916 to 1921 inclusive, making a total of six years, the present Revenue Agent,has collected commissions amounting to a eneral yearly average of $57,56122, and a total for the same.period of 45,867.95. Should the Present Revenue Agent be elected for another term of four years, be will have served at the expiration of such time, a period of twelve years, or three terms, and If his om. missions malnmla the general averas estab- lished for the first six years of his encumbency, he will have received at the close of said thl.,xl erm, $90,735.91: According to a campaign circular the present Revenue Agent has addressed, 1 the people Of Mislssippl." the commissions he has received, based on the collections namedtn said circular, for the years 1919, 1920 and 191 respeottvelY, will anmun to the following sums: For 1919, $59,144.$8; for 1920, $71,300.08; for 1921, $75,- 213.69; making a total In thee years t $05- 658.65. It wffi be noted from these figures the com,- missions of the State Revenue Agent are ine lug yearly, by leaps and bounds. It will be observed further, that should commission collections remain at $75,218.00, as based upon tle reported collections for the year. 1921, the total commissions that will be Paid the State Reveue Agent for the remainder of Isis present term of office and the succeeding term of off, co. should he be elected, w/It amount to $451,282.14. Now add this amount to the sum already received for the six years |)act, namely, $345,67.95, and it W4Al make a grand total o $796,-650.09, "lXhe biI1 endorsed by Mr. W. J.
