Mr. Chapln said that, so far ns he had
been able to observe, the recent cold
weather would have probabl) no ef

tho cotton eron. A ureat tiorcenlngo
of the cotton crop will linVo to be re

are chances still of the crop being a

this car it happens to be the recent

"The thing that Impressed me more

they nre the biggest single factor to

think I have kept as clese a watch
on this as an)m.e. All the talk we
have heard and all the things we
have read about the prosperity o( the
American farmer seems to be coming
true. In other words, the farmer
has caught up with what we have
been saying about him. I don t
know of any stronger evidence ot
tho prosperity of the southern and

you than to tell you that the farm'

SIXTEEN TIMES AROUND THE WORLD
CADILLAC ONCE MORE PROVES
ITSELF MOST ECONOMICAL MOTOR CAR
Rem&rkable record submitted by 75 Cadillac "Thirty" owners in New York metropolitan dis

Equivalent to 1 times around the
world 398,884 miles at a total re
pair cost of $53.21 !
That is the amazing record reveal
ed by the statistics just complied
from the experiences of 75 Cadillac
"Thirty'' owners in NewYork City
It is doubtful if the entire history
of travel, and transportation steam,
electric or gasoline can show a case
of parallel economy,
i. There was. in this instance no spe
cial striving to attain a minimum.
The 75 owners went their separate

They took no special precautions,
but drove, where they pleased, when
they pleased, how they pleased;
without the slightest idea that 'their
experience waji to be made a matter
At the close of 1009 statistics were'
collected and compiled from the
signed statements of the 75 users.
It was found that, the 75 cars had
traveled a total distance of 398,881
miles, or a distance equivalent to
10 tjips around the world.
Forty.six of the owners had no
repair cost whatever not a single
penny in spite of the fact that
some of them had driven their cars
as, much as 18,000 miles. '
The Highest individual repair
charge for the entire year was that
of one user, whose ear cost him
for special reasons which-, did not
reflect upon the construction in any
wav $10, the distance it carried
being 9,000 miles.
Eleven of the others excended
during the year from 25 cents to 50
cents. The average distance travel
ed was 5,318 miles per car, yet the
average repair expense was less than
71 cents per car.
The signed statements ot these 75
users showed further that tho aver
age gasoline consumption for the
touring cars was one gallon (or each
15 miles of travel nnd one quirt of
oil for each 175 miles of travel. The
Demi-Tonneau cars showed an aver
age cf 17Vsj miles for each gallon
of gasoline and. 200 miles for each
quart of oil. Seme ussrs obtained
20 or more miles for each gallon of
gasoline, but the figures first given
There Ms no disguising the fact
that this record ha; nroved a revel

It proves beyond a doubt what
the Cadillac Company has always
l ( iintair.:d, thst the eleme ( s in
motor car construction which arc
absolutely necessary to economy and
immunity flora repairs are scientific
design, standardization, accuracy of
workmanship and correct alignment.
Also that necessity for repairs is the
result of poor design, inaccuracy of
workmanshl-v illfittin" and incor
rectly aligned parts.
A j car or more ago they nroved
before the Hoyn Automobile Club of
London that three Cadillacs could
be (orn down; all the narts thrown
in a pile; a portion of these parts
discarded and new ones substituted,
and the three cars built up again
from the heap of parts to run with
absolute sweetness and without so
much as an iota of looseness.
Tor this the Cadillao was award
ed the Dewcr Trophy.i ,
