The parties have inserted each provision in the contract, and accordingly, if possible, a contract should be so construed as to give effect to each provision inserted therein.1 A part of a contract will not be ignored as inconsistent with the general intent if by reasonable method of interpretation effect can be given to such part of the contract as well as to the remaining parts thereof.2 Thus a clause in a building contract providing that no lien should be taken thereunder is not repugnant to a subsequent provision requiring the contractor to show by sufficient evidence that the premises are free of liens.3 A provision in a contract between the principal contractor and a subcontractor for compensation to the subcontractor for damage due to the failure of the general contractor to provide materials, is not rendered inoperative by another provision to the effect that the subcontractor is not to he liable for liquidated damages if his delay in performance is due to the general contractor.4 The rule that every part of the contract must be given effect applies to a contract that is partly written and partly oral.5
