There is a certain prestage that owning your
own motor car gives you in your community.
There is a certain satisfaction in knowing
you own a car that will take you anywhere
and bring you back. t is this quality of
dependability which has put 1 1 0,000 Buicks
on the road, and it is this same quality of
dependability which has made every one of
those 11 0,00o Buick Users a Buick booster.
The Buick overhead valve motor has more
power per cubic inch of piston displacement
than any other type of motor ever built. It
costs us more to make it but costs you less
to run it.

Dear SirI see from the columns of
your waluable paper the Paris City
Council has pending before it the
granting ot a franchise to the Central
Kentucky .Natural Gas Company, to
nstll its mains and supply the citizens
of Paris with nature's best product
tor heat and light. No one who has
not used natural gas for heating and
lighting a home cannot estimate its
cheapness or appreciate its advantage
as to cleanliness. The introduction of
natural gas in Paris means' the saving
annually of thousands of dollars, in
fact, in every homp where it raav be
installed, the saving annually between
it and the cost of coal for heat and
electricity for light, will be sufficient
to pay city, county and state taxes on
thahome. 'Ihis is no g6ess work.
The hrst year the saving will meet
the cost incurred in equipping- the
home with natural gas heaters and a
gas cooking range. The small heaters
cost from 3 to 36 each and a good six
cap gas range with bake oven and hot
water attachment for bath service can
be installed for from S5 to SxOO.
In order to show exactly the cost of
natural eras for heating and li&htine
i purposes I am herewith appending the
gas bills of a neighbor lor the seven
months beginning July 1, 1912, and
ending January 31, 1913.
I take this illustration for the reason
that during 1st July and August the
amount of ges used was for the fam
ily only. Commencing with Septem
ber, the family took six students from
Kentucky State University for room
and board and eight additional students
for table board. This made an in
crease of three rooms for heat and
ight, and students generally engage in
stuny until near midnight. It in
creased the number for table board
from seven to twenty-one besides the
cook and waitress, making a family of
twenty-three to cook for. Thirteen
pereons used the bath service from
twice to three times per week, which
required an almost constant supply of
Some light washing and ironing was
also done twice each week.
The gas bills for the entire house
hold, seven rooms equipped with gas
beaters and which were used more or
less throughout each dav and night for
heat and light, and as I have above
stated, cooking, washing, ironing and
bath service and here is what it
juiy anu August ior private lamilv
the bills were, July, S2.10, and Aug
ust, S2.25. For September S4.20, Oc
tober, $4.80, November, S8.10, Decem
ber, S9.90, and January. 1913, $9.80.
It will be seen that the January bill,,
notwithstanding for that month the
rate per 1,000 cubic feet of gas in
creased from 30 to 35 cents, due to the
company connecting its mains with the
West Virginia gas fields, was less
than for December. January was a
very mild month, hence the reduction
under those circumstances. The entire
cost for heat and light j for the seven
months is therefore seen to be $41.
Had the family not taken in the six
roomers and the fourteen boarders, it
might be reasonably expected that
the entirejeost for the seven months
would -have been greatly reduced.
But the cheapness ot gas is not the
only thing that recommends it to
the favorable consideration of the
great majority of households. By
uaing natural gas you do away with
coal and kindling, ashes, soot and
smoke. With natural gas Lall that is
needed to make a fire is a match and
the gas can be turned (on and lighted
in less than a minute. The use of
natural gas appeals strongly both to
hushand andwife, in that the former
who usually defrays the bills has less
money to pay out and she who is
charged with the care and comfoit ot
me nome is always aengntea dv rea
son of its cleanliness. No coal to
carrv in and no ashes to carry out.
No stove pipes to take down and no
walls blackenei with soot and smoke
Those wno will oppose the introduc
tion of natural gas will use the old ex
doded arguments, that it emits fumes
which are dangerous to health, is li
able to explode and tear up everything
including limb, body and life and that
by reason of it being a moisture ab
sorbent will greatly damage the furni
ture of the house.
I moved to Lexington in August,
1910, and at once installed natural
gas. We were told the same dire story
and had all of the gas heaters connect
ed with two inch pipes as a conduc
tor the fumes to escape. This caused
an additional expense of about 535.
Since then we have dismantled the
pipes and have experienced no bad
eirects, in iact tne cnange was never
noticeable. We have noticedno dam
age to furniture, because the heat Js
steady indregular, like Ithat from a
radiator connected with a furnace,
and a gas heater can be placed within
a loot oi any piece or furniture with
out doing if damage.
During cold weather the windows in
the house will sweat and frosi more
freely than from a coal fire and this
is practically the only objection that
can$be argued against the use of nat
ural gas. Of course every one here
who uses natural gas keens at least
one giate or stove connection in the
house ior the use of coal in theeent
of an accident to the gas mains, like
that which happened during the cold
month of January of last year. The
damage was repaired in less than
forty-eight hours and nothing has oc
curred since to diminish the pressure
or flow of gas.

matter;of convenience in the handling

because it will save them thousands of
dollars annually and greatly relieve
the housewifeof the drudgery occa
sioned by the use of coal stoves. The
maximum rate here is 40 cents ner
1.000 cubic feet and whenS the recent

feet was announced.no word of protest
was heaid. It is as safe from explo
sion as a coal oil lamp and no tear
need be entertained from that source.
The use of natural cas during the
summer months for cooking purposes
is a positive luxury, in that the kitcnen
