A NEW FOOD
A NEW SMILE
A smile of complete satisfaction follows the
first taste of New Post Toasties---the superior corn
flakes made by a new, patented process.
These delicious new breakfast flakes are fea
tured by the tiny bubbles-- -raised on each flake by
thedick, intense heat of this new art of toasting.
Si'he New Toasties are not "chaffy" in the
package; they don't mush down when milk or
cream is added, like common "corn flakes;" and
they have a delicious new flavour not found in
corn flakes of the past.
They're well worth trying---these

MOTOR CARf 1
Consult the impression uppermost in
your mind and you will find that you think
of this car as very conscientiously made.
This very general and instinctive feel
ing is, of course, a reflection of the actual
facts. People think of the car in this light
because of of their high opinion of Dodge
Brothers as manufacturers. And that
good opinion is justified by the perfor
mance of the car.
The gasoline consumption is unusually low.
The price of the Touring Car or Roadster comn
plcte, including regular mohair top,
is $950 (f. o. b. Detroit.)

WOMAN AND AUTO.
Local Agent Says There's Nothing
"Who has said a word about what
good roads are going - to do for wo
men," asks, Doe Swygert, of Trayn
ham & Swygert, distributors for the
Haynes "Light Six."
"We have had dinned in our ears
that good roads are going to profit
the general public by cutting hauling
costs, vivifying the country, boom
ing real estate values, but no one has
so much as intimated that good roads
have benefits in store particularly for
women. They might well feel that
they have been slighted.
"Women and automobiles have been
marked as boon companions. A few
women drove cars when they were
cranked by hand. Bitt since the ad
vent. of the self Starter, and improved
steering devices, the connections be
tween milady and her automobile have
eersicially close, for wotuen may now

that t.he automobile has made 11 pret

thread through traille expertly, and
she is beating chauffers at their own
tricks in city driving.
"Just now few women venture tak
ing their cars out over country roads
alone. Thoroughfares outside city
limits have offered rigors and discom
forts, that she is unwilling to put up
with on a pleasure spin. Usually the
trip out through the country is post
potted until Saturday or Sunday when
a man can preside at the wheel.

year around, are going to place the

PLAYING CARDS LONG IN USE
Their Origin Lost in Obscurity-Have
Been Put to a Great Variety
The origin of playing cards is lost
in obscurity. They are generally as
signed to the Orient, but they are
now almost universal in currency and
popularity. The backs of old English
cards were generally plain, and thus
it was that when pa'per was scarce or
expensive, old cards were too useful
to be destroyed. They were, on the
contrary, used for various purposes.
Thus they are often found in the
bindings of old books, where they
were preserved. The old cards were
also sometimes cut up for paper dolls.
They were also used as cards of in
vitation and as risiting cards. Thack
eray refers to this in "Henry
The earliest examples of wood cuts
were intended for playing cards. They
antedate the famous St. Christopher
wood cut that is sometimes credited
with being the earliest.
In the olden days playing cards, in
stead of knitting, were used by spec
tators in playhouses as an amusement
while waiting for the performance to
Such widely differing materials as
silver, leather, paper, wood, parch
ment, cardboard, deerskin and even
buffalo hide have all been used in
mtking playing cards.
