M - S Offers New Auto Service

M & S Repair, of Celeste, manufactures trailer cable assemblies and has now opened a new business that offers complete auto and truck service.

Charles Millican, President of M & S Co., stated that they have offered some auto service in the past, but they have now added a hydraulic auto lift and have added to the service they can give.

The service center is located just north of uptown Celeste in the M & S building. They are an authorized and licensed State inspection center plus have several lines of new tires and batteries to sell.

S. J. Douglas, manager of the center, stated that with the new hydraulic rack they can now give complete lube jobs and oil changes. They have purchased new tire repair equipment and can now repair and, or sell all types of car, truck and farm implement tires.

Besides the new Service Center facilities M & S Co. now manufacture hay hooks. Not just the common ordinary hay hook but left and right hand hay hooks.

That's right, left and right handed hay hooks. They will show you the advantage of using a right handed hook if you are right handed, or vice-versa.

The hooks were originally manufactured, and patented, by Charles Millican's father, Bill Millican, some years back.

Charles Millican and S. J. Douglas invite everyone to stop by and visit the new Service Center and don't forget to ask for a demonstration of the hay hooks.
