From another view point there In

Tlio public spirit manifested deserves

The Brunswick Name

Many motorists buy Brunswlcks because of the name alone.
It in oufficlent assurance for them of Buper-quality.
They have known this ancient house for its high standards,
ns have their fathers nnd Grandfathers. Since 1845 the House
of Brunswick has been noted for its rare workmanship.
Brunswick standards, as applied to tires, mean giving the
utmost. In them you will find combined all the approved
features properly related. No one advantage overshadows
others nor hides shortcomings.
,Tho bes? tread that's known, tlie strongest fabric, the most .
fcnduring side-wall construction, every addition, every extra,

has been too great.

Tho Cory Act project on Jordan
Creek In tho south end of tho county
Is being sotttcd up with experienced
farmers from tho Tyln Falls country
and other Irrigated regions, accord
ing to reports from that section, A
number of now settlors nro arriving
a number of whom nro going upon
the lower unit. This project em
braces upwards at 30,000 acros of
good bench land and will add much
to tho county's resources when final
ly dovolopcd. Ono of tho greatest
difficulties to bo ovorcomn Is Hint of
transportation, tho nearest railroad
being over seventy miles from much
of tho land. To partly overcome
this handicap, many of tho esttlers
plan on rntslng seed crops nnd It Is
the expressed opinion of a good many
that tho soil and climate will provo
fnvorablo to clover seed production.
Work Is still In progress on tho
storngo nnd distribution system for
tho lower unit, tho much land Is
being cleared nnd possibly soma of It
will bo seeded this ear. On tho upper
unit, more progress tins been mndo
nnd a considerable ario.igo of crops
will bo grown this season. Tho new
town of Ittihy, situated half-way ho
twecn tho two units promises to be
come u trading point for a consider
able part of tho project.
