Comfort in motoring has a new meaning
with the Packard one-mail top.
This top is easily raised or lowered by one
person. Sockets clamp to ends of windshield
stanchions, eliminating straps. Curtains
over all doors, except the left front door,
arranged to open with the door.
Because it combines advanced features of
convenience with its maximum service
qualities, the Packard car appeals most
strongly to exacting motorists.

From the New York Evening Post:
Those who watch developments in journalism
with something of a professional interest will keep
their eyes on the experiment which the Philadel
phia Public Ledger is making. At a time when
there is so much hasty talk about the need of
making newspapers cheaper and commoner, the
Ledger, under itß new ownership, has boldly
•truck out in the opposite direction. It began by
abandoning its Sunday "comic"—that feature of
American journalism which is so utterly incom
prehensible to intelligent foreigners. The Ledger
also raised its price to two cents, and set about
giving the money's worth. It prints more news
than any one-cent paper can, and looks carefully
after its quality. Its advertising rules have been
revised with a view to correct standards invariably
maintained. In a word, the Ledger, instead of
flinging itself upon the love of sensation and
vulgarity, has made its appeal to intelligent
readers. With ample means to strive towards its
ideals, and with a large and enlightened policy
now established, the good results which the new
Ledger has already attained, and the greater ones
certain to follow, afford instructive proof that the
path of success for American newspapers does
not lie solely through the cheap and trivial.
New York has discovered the
Public Ledger and appreciates it.
We are told that more Public
Ledgers are sold in New York
than any other out-of-town
There are more than 50,000 peo
ple in Philadelphia who are willing
to pay twice as much for it as they
would have to pay for any other
daily paper.
There are 50,000 more people
who will buy it as soon as they
" discover it. Sometimes outsiders
have to tell us what a good thing
we have right in our own home
town. As Washburn-Crosby says:
"Eventually—why not now?"
