Big Expenditure to Be Used
For Bettering Country
New York, Aug. 22.—With a pro
gram involving the expenditure next
year of approximately a billion dol
lars by the various states and muni
cipalities, the subject of highway
construction and transportation be
comes of paramount importance to
the country.
It means the employment of labor
and the purchase of the materials
and equipment necessary for the

A car that glides along at a low speed, forges ahead on the
instant in response to a touch of the accelerator, wending its
way through traffic or over the open road with the least pos
sible exertion, makes an ideal car.
Such a car is the Peerless. Added to that is a reputation
second to none. Its superior qualities are found only on cars
of much higher price. Be sure to see it next week.

the motor truck in getting products
to the market, thereby reducing the
cost of living. In fact, the building
of good roads will add to the mate

Nation as nothing else can.
Apropos to this, the announcement
made to-day that the Ninth Ameri
can Good Koads Congress under the
auspices of the Amertcan Road
Builders' Association will be held in
Louisville, Ky., the second week in
February next, is of special interest.
This meeting will bring together
from every part of the country, the
practical and scientific men identi
fied with highway construction, and
maintenance, the men who will be
responsible for the expenditure of
•the vast sums available for highway
work. There they will discuss from
every angle the many problems con
nected with the construction, ad
ministration, financing and mainte
nance of national, State, county and
city highways.
In connection with this convention,
there will also be held the Eleventh
National Good ltoads Show, also un

With Modern Conveniences Farm
Life Is No Longer Drudgery
The Toledo Fair Exhibit Will Show How Perfection of the
Willys-Light Paves Way For Additional Comforts
to Rural Folk
The old-fashioned farmer who
bathed in the kitchen on Saturday
night, shaved by a broken mirror in
the kitchen window and retired each
evening immediately after the chores
were done, is becoming extinct.
He is rapidly undergoing a trans
formation arid in the course of a few
years will be known no more.
The farmer of to-day has become
a suburbanite rather than a ruralite.
With the coining of the automobile, the
electric lighting systems, and other
modern conveniences he has forsaken
the old drudgery of the farm and is
enjoying the luxuries of the city plus
those characteristic advantages which
the country has and the city has not.
The automobile brought the farmer
to the city. The electric lighting sys
tem and other conveniences are bring
ing the city to the farmer.
The latest manufacturer to esti
mate the value of the electric light and
power systems to the farmer is John
N. Willy?. As head of the Electric

the new plant his name stamps it as
a product of high standard.

perhaps because it is more suscep

There is such a thing as tire in
surance, too, although many fail to
see the protection in that light. The
very best tire insurance in the world
is a good inner tube.
Put inside your casing a tube that
is dependable, one that will outlast
the wear of the casing itself, and
you have protected yourself against
casing damage.
Good tubes ost no more than poor
ones, yet many are prone to con
sider the tube as a necessary evil,
an item of equipment that is worthy
of only minor consideration.
