The signs of the times, relating to

suggestive of activity, confidence and

Tho features of the week have been
a slight stimulation of retail trado by
warm, bright weather North, West
and East good progress in the plant
lng and growth of leading cereal
crops, and satisfactory developments
as regards the outlook for leading
fruit crops. The greater activity in
retail trado Is reflected In a little bet
tor business by Jobbers, but unsea-
sonably wet and cool weather, has
checked farming operations at th
South and also made for quiet In
trado. The net result tho country
over has probably been a total of
trade little different from that of the
preceding week, and bank clearings
are not materially different from
those of last week.

Mr. E. A. Dorflinger,
White Mills, Pa. '
Dear Sir: '
In reference to the advertising being- run by the GOKSON 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 .oyer 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
