FARMERS ADVOCATE, CHARLES TOWN, W. . VA., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1928. In the new, re-designed, improved Separator every high speed point has high-grade ball bearings, and ONLY the New McCormick-Deering is so equipped. It takes much of the work out of the morning and evening separating. No wonder it makes a hit with every man and woman who sees it and turns it. And that's only the start. The New McCorndck- Deering has many other points of improvement. It is setting new records in clean skimming. Drop in here and see something really modern in separators.

Middlings Mills, Bleaching Machinery zul su'mes m raer govelzuneRz. and such additional machinery as is Streets are being cleaaed and graded, The answer is simple. It is because you want people to know about something you have for sale. If you have quality goods at prices people can afford to pay, you should advertise that fact. Every time your local paper is published. Store news is more interesting to the av- erage family, especially to the women, than any other sort. If the Standard Oil Com- pany, the Chew'olet Motor Company, Henry Ford and others with nationally known products find it necessary to advertise in order to boost sales for local dealers how much more necessary should it be for you, Mr. Local erchant, to do likewise? And if it pays them, why will it not pay you? If people see your name and business in their home paper every week your name will be the first one they will think about when they are out for anything in your line. J Where To Advertise. The best place is in your local Papers--- in all of them, if you can afford it, other- wise ir/the one with the best and biggest circulation, for the biggest circulation gets the biggest results. The more homes you can reach with your message the more prospective buyers you are going to have. If one paper is read in 1,000 homes in your territory and another in one half that many it naturally follows that you will get twice as much results from the one with twice as many readers. Why Some Do Not Advertise. Some merchants say they do not adver- tise because they cannot afford to buy space in the papers in their town. Do they refuse to buy a sack of flour that is needed at home because they cannot afford to buy one at each of the six stores in their town, or do they do without clothes because they cannot afford to buy a suit from each clothier in the town at the same time? The thing to do when you cannot afford two advertisements is to use only one and put it in the paper that will cmTy it into the most homes: Job Printing Done at this office---Will Please: necessary for a modern flour mill. The system employed is Allis, with modifications that make the plant l singu,larly well adapted to local mill- ing conditions. The Power Plant consists of one 250 H. P. Marine Type, internally fired Boiler and one 16x16 Ames-Stumpf Unaflow Engine, operating at 150 t pounds working pressure, together with necessary Feed Water Pumps, Feed Water Heater &c. The Water is supplied by a specially equipped well on the property and the Light furnished from a Generator that is located in the engine room. The Mill and Work Room of the Elevator are heated by exhaust steam, while the .O.tice is heated either by exhaust or live steam. Light can also be had from the city, through a double throw iteh, as lighting circuit is connect- ed with the mill. The FAevator is also equipped with an Electric Motor, vhich is serviced by the city, for use in emergencie The Real Estate is further improv- ed by a Coal Trestle (Iron and Con- crete), that mides ,storage for 600 tons of chat, This plat is located in the heart of the Weat Growing Section of the lower Shenandoah Vulley and, in ad- dition to the local supply of grain, (the cotmty producing about 350,000 bushels), there are unusual milling- in-transit privileges on both Norolk & Western Railway, and Bal.timore & Ohio R. R., whereby grain can be han- dled advantageously from practica'll all points in Pennsylvania and Mary- land, including Baltimore City; all nearby points in West Virginia and Virginia, together with points in the central and far weern parts of the United States; the outbound pi-oduct moving into Southern Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and to the Eastern Cities both for domestic and export trade.

CONLEY. 0 ,LACKED 350,000 VOTES. Did the final tally of votes as record- ed in the election justify" the pre- election expressions of doubt? Was the election close when the possible shift of popular votes is taken into consideration ? ? A nexamination of the vote of the states shows' fhat if 340,370 persons in certain places out of about 31,256,- 154 had changed their minds Herbert Hoover would have been defeated by two electoral votes. The total popular vote may go up when the exact fig- ures are recciced but the fac will re- main that less than 350,000 persons--, a minority of just slightly more than one-per cent of all the voters-had the opportunity to change the entire face of the election. In other words states that looked "doRSal" were merely puzzling because a shif ofi a relative- ly small nuraber of votes woud have put them in one column or the other.
