D ON'T overlook this matter -,
powcr. It i: important. You
wavt an :.utomobile that will
carry you througth ;rud, sand and
snow, and do it Lasily. You want a
car that will climb hills, that will get
away quickly without laboring and
straining its every part.
Not all cars can do these things,
but you iznow that the Maxwell can
becaust :you have the proof.
When the Maxwell stock touring
car set the World's Motor Non-Stop
Mileage Record a few weeks ago, it
encountered all sorts of unfavorable
conditions-rain, mud and hills, over
country and city roads-yet it cov
ered 500 miles per day, day after
day, for more than six weeks.
Power, plenty of power, unfailing
power, is absolutely essential to such
a wonderful performance as this.
Let us give you a booklet telling
all the details of this record breaking
Maxwell car. And let us tell you
about our partial payment plan, by
means of which you can make a cash
deposit and pay the balance while
you use the car. Give us the oppor
tunity and we'll prove our case.

Mogul 8-16 Saves Its OwnPrice
In Fuel Bill Reduction
THAT'S true. A Mogul 8-16 kerosene tractor
saves its own price in fuel bill saving, as cornm
pared with a gasoline tractor.
Until April Ist the price remains at $675 cash
f. o. b. Chicago. Fortunate early purchases of ma
terial still allow you this low figure. After April Ist
the price will be $725, same terms.
At either price the Mogul 8-16 is by far the most eco
nomical tractor because it operates on cheap,, common kero
sene or coal oil. Gasoline to run the gasoline tractor costs
over 100 per cent more than the kerosene a Mogul 8-16
will use. Which is best for you?
You know what gasoline costs you, and you know what
you pay for kerosene. Figure it out yourself, or see your
dealer. This is a saving you can't afford to miss .

I w;as greedily ldevouring ll the cur

lobs.erved in an obscure coi' rlir,
a:tllilRig the "Del''athlis iIn tihe New
York Herald, the anniiliuniCenliit of
Philip Nolan's deathi. This brotuight
to mly Iemoni'ry the life of pior
Philip Nolan, anild liinow that the
poor fellow is dead there can hie no
possible harn in telling his story,
the story of a mnllil without a c('olii
Philip Noland waas a gay, bright
:ard" dashing young nay %v ho servedI
IIn thte \\'eW tern I)iviaioi, of tlhe I nit
el States Army.
\\'hen Aaron lurr made his tlirt
expedition to New Orleans he hap
penled to meet Nolan at a dinner
parity. Burr marked him, walk"ed
with him, talked to him, and in
sholiirt fascinated himn. The next
year Nolan lost all interest in Lbar
rack life, for he thought constantly
iof Burr. In his unrequited affection
lie sacrificed all his time that would
otherwise havie been spent in thei
sports lie loved, in writing long hlt
ters, but never word did he receive
from his gay deceiver.
But one day Burr came down the
river as a disguised conquerer anl
he had scarcely been at the fort an
hour before he sent for Nolan. Burr
asked him to take him skiff riding
to show him the ibeauty of the place,
as he said, but really to seduce hini.
From that time Nolan, though lie
knew it not, lived as a man without
a country. At the great trial in
Richmiond the colonels and majors
escaped, but strangely enough there
was much evidence against Nolan
and he was proven guilty. \\hen
the president of the court asked him
if he wanted to say anything that
would show that he had been faith
ful to the United States, he cried
out, "Damn the United States! I
wish I may never hear of the Unit
ed States again." Oh! how the
words shocked old Colonel Morgan.
He called the court into his private
roiom and returned in fifteen min
utes with his face like a sheet, and
said, "Prisoner, hear the sentence
of the court. The court decides,
subject to the approval of the presi
dent, that you shall never hear the
name of the United States again."
Nolan laughed, but no one else
laughed. The whole room was si
lent. Nolan was taken to New Or
leans in an armed boat and deliv
ered to the naval commander there.
He was requested to put Nolan on
a government vessel, bound for a
long cruise and to have him so con
fined that he should never hear of
see the country. Colonel Morgan's
plan was fully carried out. Nolan
was allowed to associate with the
men on the ship and treated as
their equal, but he was never to
talk to them about the United
States, or be present when they
talked of the United States.
Nolan read all the foreign papers,
after United States news had been
cut, out. On Nolan's first voyage he
mnet the English Admiral and the
fleet. As the fleet was leaving an
officer on Nolan's ship borrowed a
number of books to read on the
long journey. Among the books was
"The Lay of the Last Minstrel,"l
which most of the officers had heard
of but none had read. One evening
as Nolan and the remainder of the
crew sat on the deck smoking and
reading aloud, Nolan, who read very,
well, took the book. le read thru
the fifth Canto and began the sixth,
all unconscious of what was coming.
"'Breathes there a man with soul so, dead,
Who never to himself hath said,"
But here Nolan choked, turned red,
but went on, mechanically,
"'This Is my own, my native land,',
He turned pale, but read on 'till he
came almost to the end. Then he
could stand it no longer, and jump
ing up he seized the book and threw
itin the sea. He rushed into his
stateroom and was not seen for days.
About that time his braggadocio
must have been broken down. lie
was always shy after that.
On Nolan's second cruise he
danced with Mrs. Graff, the cele
brated Southern beauty. Now No
land had known Mrs. Graft in Phil
adelphia, so he thought that he
might ask her about her home. He
began with her travels to Europe,
Vesuvius, and France, then said,
boldly, "And what do you bear,
from home, Mrs. Graff?" Then she
looked at him coldly and said,
"Home! Mr. Nolan, I thought you
never wanted to hear of home
again!" And she walked directly
to her husband. He did not dance
No one led a more methodical life
than Nolan. He read just five hours
a day. He kept up his note books
and scrap books at certain hours.
These were very curious and inter
esting. There was one of History,
one of Natural Science and one of
Odds and Ends. They were beauti
fully illustrated, for he drew admir
ably. Hlis profession, he said, was
his notes and his diversion natural
One day they overhauled a dirty
little schooner that had slaves on
board. An officer was sent to take
charge of her and some one was
needed who could speak Portuguese.
None of the officers could, but No
land stepped out and said that he
would be glad to interpret, for he
understood their language. Tile of
ficer was very much pleased and
sent out another boat. ,It was my
luck to go. W'hen we got there
Nolan told them they were free andi
would be taken to Palmas. They

mourn terribly. They wanted to go t
home to their wives hnd children, >:
for they had not seen or heard from
them since they were captured. No- I
laI struggled through the interpre
tation, turned palia.nd told them
that they could go home. They
wanted to rub noses with Nolan for
his kindness. Poor Nolan was glad
when he could get out of it all and t
go back to the ship. On his return F
he said to me, "Youngster, let that
show what it is to be without a fam
ily, without a home and without a
country, and if ever you are tempt- Ii
ed to say a word, or do a thing that k
will put a bar between you and your
family, your home and your coun
try, pray God in His mercy take "
you home to his own Heaven. Stick a
by your family, boy; forget you have h
a self while you do everything for
them. Think of your home, boy,
write and talk about it. Let it be r
nearer and nearer your thoughts the r
further you travel from it, and rush
hack to it when you are free, as
that poor black slave is doing now.
And for your country, boy, and for
that flag never dream a dream but
of serving her as she bids you,
though her service may lead you
through a thousand hells. No mat
ter what happens to you, no matter e
who flatters or abuses you, never
look at another flag, never let a
night pass but you pray God to!
bless that flag. Remember, boy, that
behind all these men you have to t
deal with, behind officers and gov:
ernment there is the country her
self,-your country,-and that you
belong to her as you belong to your
own mother. Stand by her, boy, as
you would stand by your own moth
er if those devils there had got hold i
of her to-day."
After this Nolan began to break. I
lie was old and besides his sorrow .
made him age very fast. Danforth,
who was with him in his last hours, '
gave me an account of his death. "
"Oh, Danforth," he said, "surely j
you will tell me about my country
now, for I am dying." Danforth!
told all he knew except about the F
Civil War. Nolan told Danforth to'
look in his Bible and there he would!"
find a slip of paper. He died in
about half an hour, very happy, b
with a smile on his face. On the r
paper he had written, "Bury me in
the sea. It has been my home and g
I love it! But will not some one set d
up a stone in my memory that my ti
disgrace may not be more than Ii'
can bear? Say on it, "In memory i
of Philip Nolan, lieutenant of the
United States Army. He loved his t
country as no other man has loved
her, but no other man deserved less t,
at her hands."
