Comparing prices among stores often brings savings. For the l«rge family, buying large rather than small quantities may be another economy. Sales sometimes offer good bargaining, if the shopper is a Judge of quality. Eml-of-seixscm buying often means savings in the cost of clothes, and in some areas, a family may buy many needs with a group, thus effecting additional economics. Any family can set more for its money by producing some of .the things it needs for Itself.

MASSEY-HARRIS SALES and SERVICE Blyrheville As farmers in this area prepare for a season of record food production to help feed a world ravaged by war and starvation, th« need (n keep mechanized farm; esiiip- m*n( in good working condition is now greater than ever. Production schedules have been increased to provide more tires for tractors and farm equipment. Every effort will be 1 , made to furnish- farmers with the tires they need, but tires will not be plentiful for several months. New tractors and implements now hein£ manufactured must he outfitted with tires, and replacement needy are so great that the demand will exceed the supply for some time. During^recent years the use of rubber tires on farm equipment has resulted in the saving of many valuable man-hours of labor, increased traction, reduced rolling resistance and greater maneuverability were cited as contributions to higher efficiency^ making it possible lo cultivate larger tracts of land in less time. Returned veterans who operated machinery while in military service are expected to insist on an even greater use of mechanical farm equipment and the application of science to the raising of crops. DI H. T. Edhigton, who lives Southwest of Holland, has the following equipment for sale: An H. M. 221 tractor cultivator and iin H. M. 150 tractor plow. This equipment will fit cither II or M Fsirmall tractors. DIE. S. Bollard, of Yarbro, has a 10 A tractor mower for F20 or F30 tractor for sale. Oo you know a buyer? -DI- I. W.

Remember, if you desire more information write a c:u'd or phone anyone in this office. : The cutting blade of your lawn mower is set in'approximately (wo inches frpm the friend of the wheels. To avoid unsightly ridges cut back and forth in straight linesj overlapping two or three inches. When possible rnow grass when dry, and avoid mowing in circles. • Your lawri is dormant from mid-June through mid-August, and should enter this stag^ with dense top growth so as" to keep out the weeds. Less mowing will be necessary, but cut should not be less than 1'A or l.'/<> inches high. Remember, no amount of care will keep weeds out of bluegrass lawns that are mowed loo closely. i -DI- Robert R. Lowe, who is on term- JMl leave, paid us a visit this wc«k.
