Mr. Page certainly deserves the title
of "a veteran In the automobile busi
ness," as he has been associated with It
from the earliest time and has had the
xperlence of handling many different
Kinds and types of automobiles. It Is
a striking association that of a true
veteran of the automobile Industry with
one of the newest curs In It. Mr. Page,
however, says that the Jordan car la
a car that Is sired by the oldest and
ost experienced engineers and man-ufarturt-ih
In the whole automobile In
dustry, nnd while It Is true that It Is a
car only recently born. It Is equally true
that because of Its component parts It Is
me of the oldest cars In the industry.
Mr. Page Is enthusiastic, about the
future of the Jordnn car and It seems
to those "In the know" In the trade
that a combination of Pago and Jor

motor vehicles are now so regulated

sonally I am convinced that we have so
much law for the motorist that to make

element of street trafflc we must get rid
of much of our present law and simplify

"On the other hand the pedestrian, as

This Industry has grown beyond all

like a page from "The Arabian Nights" ;
It has attracted to It scores of small
investors who subsequently have been
able to turn out cars on order u't

of Its products, good, had or Indifferent.

Happily there Is a means of salvation
If nil motor Interests would pause long
enough In their tank of gathering riches

to the soil that which they have taken
Irom It, but they can make that soil
more steadily yielding by fertilization.
As Mr. Hill advised the great farming
community of this country to encourage
the soli In the continuance of Its pro
duction, so we do humbly beseech the
great American motor Industry to en
courage and stimulate that soil from

The oiling system is extremely simple
and economical. It consists simply In
adding a small quantity of standord
cylinder oil to the water. This oil
rapidly goes Into emulsion with the
water on account of the violent agitation
and contact. Tlie water and oil Is
stirred up together In the tank Ivy tho

of scale from sticking to the walls or

The bubbles of steam breaking
through the top of the water carry with
them to the throttle valve and tho

or road dust.
