"That Paige Is A Great Car"
DO YOU KNOW why people say that—why YOU yourself say it?
Perhaps, you have heard that In actual sales Paige cars led every
American-made motor car at all the Automobile Shows this season.
Perhaps, you know that the Paige "Six-46," a big seven-passenger "Six" for
$1395, has proved easily the most popular "Six"— at any price—on the market
this season. Perhaps, you have heard that at the new price, $1075, the Paige*
Four-36" has already dominated the "Pour" field this season. Perhaps, you
know that Paige Sales have increased 61 per <ient over the corresponding
period of la«t year; that the huge Paige factory is working 24 hours a day to
fill Paige orders. These things are proofs that the Paige car "Six" or
"Four"—lS "a great car," as you say.

Six that has the beauty and distinction of 36". Do you know of any other "Pour" that
design, the seven-passenger roominess of the has the beauty and flve-passenger comfort of
Paige, the power and flexibility of the Paige- the Qlenwood, the power and reputation for

' aige " Slx " — at a Price eral design of the Glenwood—at a price
within S.OO of the Paige "Six" price? within 1200 of the Paige price?
That is $1395
It is good to know that Paige cars are at the pinnacle now in popu
larity, sales, national confidence. But we want the world to know
Come and see and drive these two wonderful Paige cars. We'll
leave the verdict to you.

Motor Critic Says Machine Has Accel
eration From Slow Running to
Passenger Train Travel
An interesting illustration of the im
pression which is invariably produced
; by the new eight-cylinder Cadillac is
! furnished bv an extract from an article
written by a mechanical expert and
motor car eritie. who makes it his busi
ness to dissect and analyze without fear
or favor motor ear design, construction
and results. Following is tflie extract:
"The writer must admit that prior
j to some actual road work with the new
i Cadillac he was somewhat inclined to
I be in the skeptical division and ques
' tioned the appreciable advantage of
tacking on two extra cylinders. A
j HO-mile run over rolling country where
f '
i hills abounded, some quite steep, re
; suited in complete conversion to the
'Eight' and great surprise at its per
i formanee, however.
j "Gear shifting proved to be almost
an unnecessary operation, speeds any
where t'rom 2 1 . to 55 or 60 miles an
1 hour beir.g attainable on high gear.
I The quick acceleration from slow run
ning to passenger train travel with no
apparent effort whatever was truly re
markable. Had stretches of road, turn
outs for slow-moving vehicles and oth
• or traffic obstructions very rarely made
it necessary to drop into second gear.
Nor was this higii gear driving done
with any effort; the car controlled with
the throttle alone ju. t as if it were an
electric responding to a current control
lever. There was an undeniable feel
jing of security in driving the ear, for
the idea of killing the motor does not
enter your mind—the reserve power is
Iso great. V Adv.*

Howard B. Coffin's Achievements
Known the World Over Where
Motor Oars Are Used
Probatoly no engineer in the auto
mobile business is so universally known,
and none is held in higher esteem than
Howard E. Coflin, the famous designer
of the Hudson cars. His achievements
; arc the world around, wherever
j motor cars are used. He h*s designed
i nearly a dozen cars, and it is his rec
; ord that lie never built a failure. With
! thousands of brainy engineers constant-
I ly working on motor car problems, Mr.
' Coffin's genuine is shown in the fact
| that whatever he touches, he improves.
He built the first four-eyliivller oar of
high grade to sell at a popular price.
For years he experimented with the
six-evlindcr car, while the public was
contentedly driving his splendid four
: cylinder production. Many users felt
that this four-cylinder car reached the
acme of perfection. When all was
ready, Mr. Coffin produced his six-cylin-
| viler automobile. While many improve
! meats have been made on the first Hud
1 son Six, still it was practically a per
fect production when it was put on th>e
market. Unfortunately this cannot be
said of all new ideas iu automobiles.
I Very many engineers in their haste
to get a new thing before the public,
i endeavor to put it in'to commercial form
, and get it into the hands of users
while it is still in a more or less ex
perimental state. One of the reasons
for the wonderful success that has at
! tended cars designed by Mr. Coffin in
' tllis fact that each and" every ear was
i practically a perfected motor car be
fore he allowed it to be produced and
Mr. I. W. Dill, local dealer, is ex
hibiting the Hudson ear and a number
|of commercial trucks at the Sixth An-
I nual Auto Show, Arena nml Rex Oar

Movement to Organize Motorcycle Com
! From F. A. M. Clubs for
Volunteer Military Service
Colonel Mortimer Delano, chief of
the First AViation Corps, United States
Army, has started a movement to or
ganize motorcycle companies from all
jof the F. A. M. clubs for volunteer
military service. If the enthusiasm
with which the scheme has been re
ceived by the clubs to which it has so
i far been presented can be used as a
guide, the movement will meet with
unlimited success. For instance, in
Milwaukee when Colonel Delano pre
sented his plan, thirty-tive riders im
mediately agreed to join the corps, and
it is anticipated that the majority of
1 the remaining members of the Mil
| waukee Motorcycle Club will also enlist.
The longest endurance run ever un
dertaken by the Koqnoke t Va.) Motor
cycle Club is being arranged for June
19. . The course covers 245 alto
j gether through the mountain regions
of Virginia, crossing the highest range
of both the Blue Ridge and Allegheny
Mountains. Riders from all over the
| state arc asked to participate in the
j Moundsville, \V. Vs., has a new mo
torcycle elub of 114 eliprter members.

ganisation of the new body.

Harrisburg Automobile Company Will
Have Exclusive Beo Exhibit at the
Sixth Annual Auto Bhow
The exhibition of Beo ears at the
Arena at the Sixth Annual Automobile
Show of the Harrisburg Automobile
Dealers' Association will consist of a
six-cylinder touring oar, a four-cylinder
five-passenger touring car, a four
cylinder two-,passenger roadster, a four
cylinder coupe, four-cylinder 1914
touring car and a six-eylindej chassis,
the same as was exhibited at the New
York Show.
It was the trainload of seventeen
cars of Reo automobiles that put Har
risburg on the automobile map and that
made a striug of automobile:! when
unloaded on Tenth street reaching from
Market south to the Mulberry street
bridge, the longest string of new auto
mobiles of any kind ever seen by any
resident of Harrisburg at one time and
is proof positive that the Reo is a very
popular car. The sales of the Harris
burg Automobile Company will be close
on to four hundred pleasure cars and
two hundred trucks this year. The Heo
Company are adding to their line of
trucks a three-quarter to a ton truck,
electrically equipped, 120-inch wheel
base, built out of their four-cylinder
touring car engine and their six-cylinder
construction from the flywheel back
that will stand alone for trucks of this
capacity and type at the price which
will be a trifle over a thousand dol
lars. It can be truthfully said that
Harrisburg is one of the numerous
homes of the Reo and that there is an
unlimited number of Reo owners who
are Reo enthusiasts from start to finish.
The financial standing of the Reo Mo
tor Car Company, their up-to-date and
progressive policy, their ability to sell
completely their every year's output on
schedule time has made it 'possible far
them to be right on the job in putting
the latest, newest and most up-to-date
equipments on their cars. The fact
that Reo cars can be driven five thou
sand miles on an average cost of less
than o cents a mile for everything ex
clusive of the operator, has brought a
host of Reo owners and enthusiasts to
their camp.—Adv.*

At the forinul banquet of the six
teenth century the man who carved |
the meat was bound with the red tape I
of precedent. When curving lor distin- j
guisbed guests he had to remember!
that certain pmts of the birds or meat i
must be set aside. In carving for his j
lord and lady be was expected to exer- j
else great discretion in the size of the !
pieces he sent round, "for ladies will i
be soon angry and tbeir thoughts
soon changed, and some lords are soon I
pleased and some not, as they be of j
complexion." He was expected to have j
the rules both of the kitchen and the;
peerage at his knife's end. A pike, for j
instance, must be dished up whole for j
a lord and in slices for commoner folk.
The rank of his diners, too, determined

whole, sliced, plain or with gold leaf

fine point of advantage of this method
