himself on an error by the catcher.
A misplay by Vashti's left fielder gave
Augustana another run in the third,
while two hits and a walk sent the
final tally over the plate in the eighth.
An error and a two-sacker by

man, in the fourth, registered the
first point for Vashti. Three singles
and an error gave two more in the
sixth, while a walk and a free ticket

AT the big National Motor Shows, where values were
carefully compared by everyone looking for a moderate-priced
car, the " Mascotte " was undoubtedly the
leader. Come and see the "Mascotte'' and you'll approve
the public's judgment.
It is big enough, powerful enough and the most stylish,
low-priced car shown. Indeed, it compared favorably
with any car at the Shows. We only ask you to judge the
style and finish for yourself.
It's well built, like all Maxwells. If they weren't well
built, there wouldn't be 51,000 of them in use. Doctors,
who demand constant, unfailing service, drive 17,000
Maxwell cars. None but a dependable car could meet
this test and an economical car to run as well.
And it will last as long as the most expensive cars made,.
This is proved by State registrations in New York, where
last year 91 per cent of the 1905 Maxwells were again
registered after seven years' continuous service. No car
at any price has an equal record.
Forp-door, flush-side, five-passengrr body. A 25 horse-power, four cylinder motor.
Dual ignition, sliding grar transmission, multiple disc clutch, shaft drive, semi-floating
rear axle. Irreversible steering gear, double acting brakes, long resilient imported steel
springs. 32-inch wheels and 104-inch wheel-base. Finished in blue-black with gray
wheels, upholstered and appointed with every provision for comfort. Equipped with
magneto, generator, two gas lamps, three oil lamps, horn, tool kit, jack, pump, tire
repair kit, foot and robe rails. Price, $980 f.o.b. factory, top extra.
Other models from $600 to $1480, including self-starting, fully-equippdl
duplicate of the Gliddea Tour Winner.
