With six mouths of its 1912 sea-1
son still to run, sales of the Pack-
ard Motor Car Company equal the j
entire output for the season of 1911.
Orders for Spring delivery have
broken all records for this time of
the year. More specifications were
received during the past week than
any other week since July 1.
The original line of enclosed bo
dies for this season is practically
closed out and a supplemental fact
ory order is now coming through.
The impetus given by the ap
pearance of the Packard "Six" has
been a powerful factor in the in
crease in sales. Orders now being
received call for three times as
many "Sixes" as for the well esta
A majority of Packard dealers
have disposed of their entire allot
ments of 1912 "Thirties" and there
is every indication that the early
estimate of a fifteen million dollar
output in pleasure cars will be ex
ceeded by a substantial sum.
Sales of Packard trucks for the
calendars year 1911 will be just
twice the output for the year 1910
and the new truck shops, which
will treble the capacity of this divi
sion, are being whipped into shape
so as to be ready the first of the

At Sioux Iowa, Saturday Oct.
21, a Chalmers "30" driven by
H. A Wetmore, won the fifty-mile
free-for-all event i u the Sioux
City mile track, defeating a Buick
49, a Cutting 50, a Moon 45, a
Moon 30, an Abbott 30 and a
Page-Detroit, all of which were
special factory racing cars; and
also a Jackson 50, and E-M-F 30,
a Maxwell, two Michigans and a
Ford, all of the latter being Sioux
City cars driven by local drivers.
The winning Chalmers took a
cash prize of S150., a silver cup
and a trophy offered by the Sioux
City Journal for the fastest time
made in the race by a local car
and local driver.
An English gentleman, traveling
through Norway during the win
ter, observed that at each farm-i
house there was a pole, to the lop (
of which was fastened a sheaf of !
wheat. He could not understand
why this custom prevailed, and, 1
since he could not speak the lan- j
guage of the country, it was along
time before he learned why sheaves j
were tied to the poles.
Hut meeting a Norwegian who
could speak English, the traveler I
asked the reason for the strange I
"It is a Christmas offering to the
birds," said the Norwegian. "So
fully do the hearts of our people
respond to the gentle influence of I
the season, that we desire even the
little feathered creatures to rejoice
with us and to share in the' treats
of the day."
Is it not a pretty custom? Nor
way is a northern country, where
winter begins early and lasts long.
Snow and frost reign for nearly
three-quarters of the year, and
during this long period times are
hard for the birds. Not only is it
cold there, but Norway being near
the Arctic circle, the winter of that
country is so divided that by far
the greater part is night.
So the birds as well as the child
ren welcome lnnstmas. It is a
pretty sight, on Christinas morn
ing, to see the winged singers flock
ing about the poles, nestling in the
straw, twittering their joy as they
feast upon the grain.
Would it not be a good custom to
establish in our own country? If
our city boys and girls could not
get sheaves of wheat, they could
obtain loaves of bread; and surely
the sight of dozens of little birds,
pecking away at the food and then
flying off with little b i t s of it,
would well repay the trifling cost
and trouble attending so gracious
