What 5,000 Miles
Mean to You
Overland, on frozen, rough Indiana
roads, did 5,452 miles in 7 days

back to Chicago at express train speed
with no change of engines-no let up to
the terrific wear and tear. It means more
than a year's abuse and not a flaw; stam

stration of the wonderful riding qualities
of the radical new Triplex Springs.
Average, 32.45 miles per hour. ,
Gasoline, 20.24 miles per gallon.
