delighted .customer wrote the other
day In the following strain: "I've
used a Hudson for a long time, and
I must say It Is the best machine
t have seen. Please send me some
data and' price lists of new cars."
"(he demand for the 1910 Hudson
touring enrs has been so great that
absolutely no dlfforencojn the build
of the machines Is planned for 1911.
The 1910 model will come along as

Two Pierce Arrow cars of, 48

One hour and ten minutes was
knocked off the Plttsburg-to-Phlladel-phla
ovqrland record last Tuesday,
September 20, when 8. D, Waldon,
vice-president of the' Packard Motor
Car Company, driving a 1911 Packard
"Thirty1' touring car, covered tho 303
miles over the mountains between tho
two cities In 12 hours, 51 minutes.
The trip was made with just one stop
eloven minutes nt McConnollBburg
for gasoline and oil. Tlio previous
record of H, hours, 1 mlnuto was mado
by Mr. Waldon, Soptcmber 12, 1908.
Tho first '175 mtlos of this trip Is
entirely- over mountains, and the road
Is n particularly difficult one ou ac
count, oft the worn condition of the
road, which Is an old stage route,
from which, the surface dirt has long
since been washed away, leaving bare
rock and loose stones on the shelf
like course which winds 'ovor tho
many ridges. Water breakers, or, as
they are familiarly known in automo
bile circles, "thank-you-ma'ams," aro
about 75 yards apart for the entire
distance, even, on tho tovoler and
smootlicr highway oast of Gettysburg.
On tho trip last week, Mr. 'Waldon
started from Pittsburg at 3:45 a. m.,
reaching Bedford at 8:20. (Hidden
tourists of three years ago who went
over this part of tho trip will appre
ciate what It- means 'to' cover this
.distance In 4 hours, 5' minutes, with
out a stop. McConnelsburg was reach,
od at 10 o'clock, 21 minutes ahead of
tho previous time, no stop having
been mado unjll then. After refilling
yith gasoline and oil, the flying trip
vraB taken up and the car sped' on
to Philadelphia without a' stop, reach
ing tho North Ilroad- Street garage of
the 'Packard Motor Car'Company of
Philadelphia at 4:3C p. m. At McCon
nellsburg. Mr. Waldon was handed n
telegram from J, M. Murdock, of
transcontinental fame, who wired from
Hlladelphla that he had made tho
run from McConnellsburg to Philadel
phia In C:48 the, day before, and In
viting Waldon to beat It If he could.
This trick was turned nlcoly, Mr. Wal

The original purposo of the run was
to glvo several Packard dealers a
