The new Mitchell closed bodies for
all four seasons are out and these new
creations show all the coming trends
as can be expe-tel from John W Bate.

likel that some of the new models
will soon make their appearance in
Kver Mitchell body, closed or open,
indeed represents the finest attain
able in that class of car The luxury
models are lavish in their finish, de
sign and appointments. The ablest
craftsman of them all have been con
sulted and employed by John W Bate
In their construction No limit as to
cost conld have entered into the build
ing of the new smart bodies for they
look their class and nowhere will be
found more palatial town, theater or
touring cars for all seasons
"The trend certainly seems to b
towards four season types cars for
winter and summer for fair days awl
for storms."" said R W TXason. sales
manager. "One Mitchell car of this
type serves for all the year around.
It is never too cold for it never too
stormy and never too warm
"The Mitchell sedan, wh.ch ts the
Springfield tjpe. is finished, uphol
stered and equipped like the finest
limousine but the seats, are all inside
so anyone can drive it w lie sitting

the two extra seits the car comfort

"The plate glass sides In this car
completelv disappear when vou want
an open touring car and this change
can be made in a moment.
"The Mitchell cabriolet Is another
four season model It Is a three pas

for still another passenger and changes
readily into a very smart roadster

Package compartments, disappearing
