You know how reasonably you
can protect yourself, do you
not? Probably not. Call on
me and I'll explain the matter
of insurance to you fully and
tell you just what I can insure
your property for in good old

wants to be made all new.

way it's our

don't warp or curl up, and
keep water out tight as wax.
Don't forget, we warrant them
and sell as cheap as you pay
for shingles you can't depend
on. You'll find them at our
Kemp Lumber Co.

A Farmer Reports.
An itemized report of three
months' sale from the products of
three cows and a few chickens has
been handed The Texan and we take
pleasure in reproducing it. The re-
port covers the dates between Jan-
uary 1, and March 31st, on the farm
of D. D. Ward, who lives six miles
south of Dalhart. A successful'
farmer is gauged to a large extent
by the by-products he is able to dis-j
pose of from his farm, for these meet ¡
the living expenses and the pin
money requirements. The following
report indicates that the Panhandle
is not one whit behind the older
states in the way of by-farm pro-
ducts and it demonstrates that Dal-
hart is a good market:

The record of the Model M Winton used by ourselves in the Here-
ford Country during the past year is a striking example of Winton
Reliability, This car has never failed to make the "round trip." To
break down on the Plains means delay, inconvenience and expense.
The total cost of new parts and repairs on our Model M for one year
is $22.50—$13.50 for repair and replacement of left front spring and
$9.00 on balance of car. The car today is in the pink of condition,
and the most reliable car in the whole Texas Panhandle.
When you buy a Winton you buy reliability and that means
economy. Then we have a Winton expert right on the ground to keep
your car running; that's economy too. We sell for cash or trade for land.
