To have money you must save money. It is not
what you earn but what you save that keeps you safely
ahead of adversity.
You may be thinking that later on, when prosper
ity retums, you will begin to save a little. But it is wise
to fortify yourself now, for some folks are not look
ing for a return of the easy days that are gone.
Better do the best you can with conditions as you
meet them than depend too much on what may happen
by and by.
Money in the bank is the best assurance of better
times when you need it.

►
in a Series appearing in this newspaper
Give first thought to nitrogen this year in
ordering fertilizers. It’s nitrogen that
gives your crops healthy growth and heslthy
yield. This year, more than ever, on account
of unusual dry weather, nitrogen is most lack
ing in the soil.
Play safe. Buy plenty of Chilean Nitrate of
Soda. I’ve got a big supply. Cheaper than it
has been for years. New 100-lb. bags, too.
Order now and be sure of your requirements.
CHILEAN NITRATE now comes in new
100-lb. bags that make it more popular
than ever. It always has been the dependable
fertilizer of Southern farmers. Side dress, top
dress with Chilean Nitrate...and increase your
yields, quality and profits.
Be sure you specify ‘‘Chilean” when you order
your nitrate. “Chilean” is the one important
point to remember. It is your protection and
your dealer s too. ^A^hen you get “Chilean,’*
then you’ll get the real, money-making fer
tilizer— the natural nitrate. Remember the
two kinds — Original Chilean (Crystalline)
and Champion Brand (Granulated) both
natural nitrate.

by a circuitous route to a pine grove
near Lakeview, where the other niem-
bers of the junior class were av/ait-
ing them, with a delicious fish supper
sizzling over the coals. This was a
“treasure” indeed, and the pirates
proceeded to enjoy it, after which
they toasted marshmallows and end
ed the feast with fruits. A delightful
program of games followed. The

fectively used in the invitations and
favors.

To Show Lantern Slides
Lantern slides showing something
of the work on some of the foreign
mission fields will be shown at the
j Vass Presbyterian Church at seven-
{ thirty o’clock on Friday evening of
I this week, and the public is cordially
I invited to see these pictures.
Students Present Plays
In their eighth grade work in Eng
lish in the Vass-Lakeview School, pu
pils of J. R. Auman are required to
write one-act plays and the best of
these productions are selected to be
given before the public.
On last Thursday evening a delight
ful program of these plays, supple-
! merits by several black-face numbers
I by high school pnpils, was g'ven. The
f first w^is “The Romance of a Busy
i Broker” by Eva Callahan, with sev-
I eral members of the eighth grade tak-
! ing part. John Coore was the author
I of the second, “Tom Sawyer White-
j w^ashes the Fence,” and the third was
i “I Told You So” by Faye Brewer.
The interesting plots were cleverly
' worked out and the plays were well
presented.
The class is donating a portion of
the receipts to the school for the com-
! pletion of a tennis court which was
I started last year and the remainder
j is to go to the baseball fund.
Funeral services for Stacy Blevins
Funeral services for Stacy Blevins,
four-year-old daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Jap Blevins of Vass Route 2,
who was found dead in bed Monday
morning, was held in the Vass Meth
odist Church at 11:00 oclock Tuesday
morning, conducted by the pastor, the
Rev. W. C. Ball, and interment was in
Johnson’s Throve cemetery.
Little Stacy had been afflicted from
birth, but now she has been trans
planted where nothing will hinder her
blossoming into the fullness of
beauty. Surviving are the parents and
four brothers and sisters, the grand
parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Thomp
son, and numerous other relatives.
Plan Produce Exchange
The most recent enterprise planned
for the benefit of the farmers of the
Vass section is a farmers’ produce
exchange, and the thirty farmers who
met on Monday night to discuss the
'project are quite enthusiastic. They
have agreed to go into the trucking
business on a small scale of the sup
port of the exchange, thinking it wise
to be cautious, and if the enterprise
does not succeed, no one will be badly
hurt, while if it does meet with suc
cess, it will be an easy matter to in
crease the acreage as circumstances
warrant.
Committees were appointed to visit
i the exchanges in Mt. Airy and Can-
j dor, and these will report at a meet-
! ing on Wednesday evening, at which
' time a board of directors will be ap-
! pointed to engineer the exchan#?a.
R. M. Byrd Passes
Vass was saddened by the death
of Richard Mack Byrd, brother of
i Mrs. G. W. Griffin, who passed away
■in Gulfport, Miss., on Sunday after-
inoon at 3:00 o’clock. None of the
particulars are known here. Mrs.
Griffin received a telegram on Sat
urday night stating that Mack was
not expected to live through the
night, and on Sunday the message of
his death came.
Mack, as he was known to all of
the long-time residents of Vass, was
the second youngest child of the late
Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Byrd, the first
settlers of what is now the town of
Vass, and spent his boyhood days here
until the family moved to Mississ
ippi in 1904. He was a favorite among
both the young and the old here, and
his rare return visits were occasions
of pleasure to the people of Vass and
to him.
Mr. Byrd is survived by his wife
and five children; one sister, Mrs.
Griffin of Vass; and four brothers, C.‘
H. Byrd, Shreveport, La.; E. D. Byrd,
who travels in the southern states;
L. D. ^yrd, Biloxi, Miss, and Hunter
Byrd of New Orleans.
On account of sickness in her im
mediate family, Mrs. Griffin was un
able to go to Mississippi for the fun
eral.

Essex is the only low-priced car
that follows the motor design of
the highest-priced cars in using
light-weight moving parts
and in engine speed
This design enables Essex to de
velop more power at the same
motor speed and the same power
at a lower motor speed than the
“Low-Speed” cars. It permits
greater power in ptt'oportion to
weight, better balancing of crank
shaft loads, improved bearing
lubrication, more efficient cooling
and enables Essex motors to out-
last low-speed engines.
Essex introduces fine-car style
and Super-Six smoothness to the
low-priced field. It is strongly
built to assure lasting satisfaction
and ©nduring dependability. It
challenges the performance of
any six and matches the econ
omy of cars most noted for low
operating cost. It gives you
Rare Riding Comfort for the
^rst time at its low price.
