truck1 to' be regarded as a productive

day practically no industry or line of
business, in the conduct of which
transportation is a factor, that could
nof profit in one way or another by
adopting the motor truck either to
replace or to supplement its system
of Tiorse delivery.
All oyer the mainland, as well as

commercial life, the adoption of motor
wagons by a local concern has pre
cipitated a strike among its horse
wagoa drivers. Thirty teamsters, em
: !cyed by the Chicago Consolidated
-:ttlln& Company walked out recently
I ccause the company bad put into
. crvice six large motor trucks, each
ct -which wfU replace two teams. The
!rivera' wanted each motor wagon re
acted to do the work of only one
m. y. The trouble arose over the
'a-t that a motor driver made de
livery and collection at a point on
another man's route. Since drivers
are paid for the amount they sell off
the wagon, the- man whose territory
was invaded made objection and was
uphfld by his fellow workmen.
The machines, which are built by
the Consolidated Company for its
own use, are of two tons capacity
and carry 100 cases, weighing 40
pounds each, to a lead. Some of the
trucks cover as much as 80 miles a
day. the longest daily run being made
on a tilp to Joliet and return, a dis
tance of 38 miles each way. Sev
eral of the machines make two 40
mile trips a day.
The situation caused temporary
alarm among several local trucking
concerns who are operating mixed
installations of horses and motors.
"This is the first instance of a
strike of teamsters Because of the
introduction oi motor trucks that I
have heard of," paid the president of
one large haulage contracting con
"To attempt to force us to operate
motor trucks at half their capacity is
an injustice which we will not tolerate
for an instant. The introduction of
motor wagons is simply the logical
development of the transportation
problem. They will not throw nearly

routes covering in the aggregate
This will open a large field for the

be done by professional haulage con

Ten thousand Hudson curs wili be
built this year.
F. E. Howes, the Hudson dealer, to
day made the announcomu'. of this
liCws, but it was with a note cf re
gret because of iher fact that the out
put Is not 50 per cent in excess of that
number of cars.
The, ?ay purchasers of Hudson cars
are running at the present time in ftiis
territory would indicate the need of
at least 15.000 Hudsons to supply the
rising demand throughout the country.
Purchases of Hudson cars thus far
this season have been double that of
the best previous year, which was the
The endeavor is being made to rush
the orders for immediate shipment
that have gone forth from this terri
tory and the factory is working 21
hours a day and doubling the size of
its plant in order not to disappoint
ihose who have already placed orders
"The reason there will be but 10,000
Hudsons built for the entire world this
year," said Mr. Howes, "is that the
Hudson factory refuses to ship any car
that is not 100 per cent right and it ap
preciates the fact that in order to
make perfect cars, time and individ
ual attention must be given to each
"While the Hudson car is simple in
contrast with many other automobiles,
it is necessary that between each pro
cess of manufacture there be a myriad
of inspections and tests to determine
that the car has been built correctly.
All these things take time and the
announced output for this season's bus
iness is a reflection of the fact that
the Hudson factory officials place
quality over quantity. They believe It
is better to build 10,000 cars, each one
of which is given individual attention
and is known to be 100 per cent cor
rect from a manufacturing point of
view when it leaves the factory, than
it is to build 15,000 cars and possibly
have some that do not conform to the
high standard set for Hudson cars by
the 48 engineers who designed them."
FIND US FOR
"Cabbages and kings" Is a phrase
Usually quoted in a spirit of levity or
derision, but nowadays there is more!
significance in the coupling of thej
term than the average person believes.
This is due to the prosperity of the
modern truck gardener and it is sur
prising to note how many of this class
of American citizens Are fast becom
ing real klng3 of industry and thrift.
It is not uncommon vto find -many
wealthy and independent families who
have gained their competence by the
sale of cabbages and other true Scr
een produce. ' And, to a large extent,
the motor truck has brought affluence
out of mediocre success.
"Truck gardeners are among our
best friends and patrons," says Presi
dent John N. Willys, of the Gramm
Motor Truck Co., of Lima, Ohio. "Al
most daily we receive letters from
men engaged in this line of business
attesting the importance of the motor
truck in the industry. The substitu
tion of the truck for the horse and
wagon delivery in true gardening,
about a revolution. Truck gardeners
who operate trucks find themselves en
abled to carry on their business on a
large and more profitable scale; they
have more time to themselves for the
study of advanced methods to assist
in their calling and for recreation, and
the return for their labor is greater.
Motor trucks, as opposed to horse and
wagon adelivery in truck gardening,
allow for great loads in less time than
formerly, and for higher prices for pro
duct, because, through rapidity of
transportation it arrives on the market
in fresher condition. And where be
fore that the gardener was forced to
spend anywhere from one to 6 or 8
hours on the road, usually late at night
or very early in the morning, he can
now lie abed and rest. His truck will
make the trip to market in one-tenth
t he time the horses required."

The Cadillac has enjoyed many successful, many extraordinary seasons.
1913 is eclipsing all former successes.
NeveV'Sn its history has Cadillac enthusiasm been so strong, so widespread, so pervasive as now.
The new car has literaiiy taker, the country by storm.
The handsome lines, the deep, soft upholstery, the yielding springs, the riding qualities of almost vel
vety smoothness; the quiet engine of abundant power, the flexibility and the remarkable-, ease of con
trol; the standardization of parts the durability, the simplicity and the economy of maintenance; , the
practically 100 per cent efficient Cadillac Delco electrical system of automatic self-cranking and electric
lighting. NOW IN ITS SECOND SUCCESSFUL YEAR ON THE CADILLAC; these .and almost count
less other marks of distinction stamp the Cadillac as a car which leaves nothing to be desired, nothing
really worth while which a greater expenditure will procure.
The Cadillac production is large 15.000 cars fcr 1913 just one of the crt elements which make po.
sible the Cadillac car at the Cadillac price. '4
Before the new model was announced, dealers had contracted for this entire enormous output. They
had also" placed orders for several thousand more; our acceptance of these additional orders being con
ditional upon our being able by some means to supply them.
Without seeing the car or even its photograph, more than 3,000 individual purchasers placed their signed
orders. They had confidence in the Cadillac car and in the Cadilfce Company. ;
Four thousand of the new cars which have already been Csllvercd have vastly" intensified the early en
thus'asm . .They are proving that the confidence wai net misplaced. They are confirming the wisdom
of those who placed their orders in advance. .
Nearly everyone you meet is to use a common expression "Sold on the Cadillas." There seems to
be almost none left wno are not convinced of Cadilla? pre-eminence.
As we said at the outset: We believe that orders for nearly every 1913 Cadillac including those for
spring and summer deliveries will be placed before winter is' half over.
It behooves you, therefore, to arrange for as early a delivery as your dealer can give you.
By heeding this advice given you in aii sincerity you will avoid .disappointment. You will also avoid
the necessity of compromising on some other car a proceeding which almost invariably results in an
unsatisfied longing in the mind of the man who has once concluded that the Cadillac is tao car he
