George Heichelbeck, driver of the
team that ran away last week, said
that he was In no way at fault. He
was driving home and wishing to
make some purchases he securely tied
the horses In front of Ewording's
store on the old Wilsonville turn
pike. While in the store the horses
became frightened, pulling over the
tie post and breaking the tie strap
and dashing up the turnpike at a
terrific rate of speed. Two drivers
who were a short distance above
saw by the cloud of dust a warning
and were able to avoid a collision.
William Mordwaunc, who was driv
ing towards his home at Uswlck, was
not so fortunate. Tho team ran In
to him, smashing one of the wheels
of his wagon. The next one they
mot was P. J. Keary who was near
the gravel bank on his way home.
He made an effort to get out of
their way but was unsuccessful.
They dashed into his wagon, upset
ting It and spilling Mr. Keary out
and turning his team down an em
bankment a distance of twenty feet,
but fortunately neither man nor team
was seriously injured. The runaway
team was caught at Wilsonville by
Patrick Ryan with but slight bruises.

Tho grading and leveling of tho
tram road Is about half completed.
The foreman said that it was to be
completed In one month, but owing
to the dllllculty that he has had In
getting a sulllcient number oj labor
ers it win now taKe at least two
months. The distance is about two
miles or 10.5G0 feet. He estimated
that one man would grade eight feet
a day and at that rate forty men
would complete the job in thirty-
three days. He said his estimate so
far was about correct but not having
the necessary number of men is
what is hindering him from complet
lug tho job nt tho specified time. Tho
engine which will bo used on the
track arrived on Tuesday. It was
shipped from Virginia.
While ex-county commissioner
George Hettinger was driving up
Main avenue on Wednesday his
horse became frightened by an auto

a man nearly 80 years of age did
well to manage the frightened horse
so well. After croslng the bridge
and before reaching the railroad
crossing he had tho horse under con
troi, but a sudden snrieK from a
nearby engine gave tho horse anoth
er fright running him into tho
bridge, striking with such force that
it threw hlin over the dash board,
striking on his head and shoulders

An appeal to the pride
of the owner of a home
Everyone who owns a home, is
anxious that that home shall make
the best appearance possible. Two
things are necessary to produce satis
factory results in painting and var
nishing a home :
First A satisfactory color scheme.
Second Paints, varnishes, stains
and enamels of such good quality that
they not only give the exact color
effect required, but are sufficiently
durable to keep up the attractive ap
pearance of the house in spite of the
wear and tear of living in it.
These are offered by the Sherwin
Williams Pain 's and Varnishos. The
Sherwin-Williams Co. not only make
every kind of paint and varnish used
for a house and the best quality of
that kind, but they make suggestions
for the selection of colors, varnishes,
stains and enamels, so that any given
idea can be carried out, and car
ried out with the best materials.
You should sec to it that when you
buy paints and varnishes for your
house, or any part of it, or when you
give an order to your painter for any
painting end varnishing you want
done, that Sherwin-Williams Paints
and Varnishes are purchased.
I:i large work it is always best to
have a practical painter ; but there
are many little things about the house
that you can readily finish yourself
by using Sherwin-Williams ready-to-apply
Come in and have a little paint
talk with us. Now is the time to
"brighten up" your home for the
long winter months. We can tell
you the best product to use for any
purpose you may have in mind and
secure complete finishing specifica
tions for you from The Sherwin
Williams Co., if you desire them, for
special work. Our line of Sherwin

care of your paint and varnish re

Mr. E. A. Dorflingcr,

In reference to the a'dvertising being run by the GORSON AUTOMOBILE
CO. of Philadelphia, where they advertise 191 1 Jackson cars, we wish to assure you
that this is absolutely a fake and that there is no truth whatever in the statements
which they make. The facts of this case are that they never had any correspondence
with the JACKSON AUTOMOBILE CO.; never bought any cars from them and
these machines that they have were purchased from the FULLER BUGGY CO. and
were made up from scraps which the FULLER BUGGY CO. had left over last year
when they decided to discontinue making automobiles. Any one who examines these
cars closely will discover at once that they are assembled from a scrap pile as practi
cally every engine is different and there are no two cars exactly alike. The FUL
LER BUGGY CO. had quite an accumulation of this junk and rather than throw it
away they had the opportunity of making it up into cars and selling it to GORSON.
GORSON is taking advantage of the fact that MR. G. A. MATTHEWS is a large
stockholder in both the JACKSON AUTOMOBILE CO. and FULLER BUGGY
CO. and also of the fact that the JACKSON CO. did make cars last year similar to
the cars made by the FULLER CO.
We would say however, that any one who purchases one of these cars will get
badly stung because, as stated above, they are made out of scraps and have no guaran
tee whatever attached to them. The JACKSON CO. will prosecute GORSON for
advertising these cars as JACKSON'S as they are certainly misrepresenting this
matter. THE JACKSON AUTOMOBILE CO. HAVE NOT ANY SURPLUS
STOCK and you need not be alarmed that they ever will have. They are one of the
best companies in business to-day and are very strong financially. They are also
conservative and will never manufacture more cars than they can dispose of at regu
lar list prices.
Very truly yours,
JACKSON MOTOR CO.
Although advertised as genuine, they are not Jackson cars,
are made from scraps.
Be Sure Your Car is a
