Thinking people everywhere are becoming more and more concern-
ed about the public health. The more dense our population be-
comes; the more necessary it is to guard against disease-spreading
germs and food contamination.
In the hot summer months especially it is wise to guard against im-
pure or unwholesome food. One of the great essentials in buying
food is to get only that which is clean and fresh—then it can be
depended on to be pure and wholesome.
We have always prided ourselves on keeping our stock FRESH
and CLEAN, and you can always DEPEND on getting only PURE
and WHOLESOME eatables at our store.

Mr. and Mrs. C. E. James and their
daughter, Miss Cynthia, of Keller, and
their son-in-law, T. L. Robinson, of
Ft. Worth, have been the guests of
Mr. and Mrs. James' daughter, Mrs.
C. W. Adams, on Connally street the
past few days. Mr. James formerly
lived near Pickton and has many
friends in Sulphur Springs and Hop-
Supt. F. V. Garrison returned last
Sunday from Denton, where he spent
the last 60 days as one of the faculty
of the State Summer Normal and sum-
mer school. Mr. Garrison reports a
very large attendance and much hard
work done during this time. He is
very enthusiastic about the special
Advantages the Normal exerts on a
town, from the standpoint of both edu-
cation and business.
A. L. Anderson of Jacksonville and
R. S. Bolton of Dallas, have been ap-
pointed as special agents for the Ford
Automobile in this terrtory, and will
open a general Ford agency here in
one of the Brashear buildings on Cori-
nally street under the firm dame of
The Hopkins Motor Co. They will car-
ry a full and complete line of all Ford
parts and repairs.
Messrs. Anderson and Bolton are
successful business men and come to
us recommended as gentlemen in all
The Ford Company announces anoth-
er substantial reduction in prices this
week (which will be found elsewhere
in this week’s issue of the Gazette)
and the regular 5-passenger Ford can
now be bought for $360, plus the
freight, which we understand is $34
or $35, making the car cost, laid down
$395. This is/ a reduction of $90 over
the prices that were in effect a week
ago, and will undoubtedly prove a great
stimulus to sales.
With tiie good roads movement
growing stronger and stronger all the
while; with our““ft>ur hundred and
some odd miles of graded roads, our
paved streets and the pikes we are
soon to have, there will unquestion-
ably be an ever-increasing demand for
automobiles in Hopkins county, and
from the way the Hopkins Motor Co.
seems to be starting off, we predict
that the new agency will puBh the Ford
car to the front in this territory.
