TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR. VORTU --PLATTE, NEBRASKA. APRIL 14, 1911. NO 21 llortli How to be Sure of a Good Motor Car Bargain. Getting n good bargain when you buy an automobile is not just a question of price. It is a question of features of what is in the car the design, materials and workmanship. If it is possible to get more for your money in one car than in another, you want to know it. Ability to pick out a car that will give you the unost money, depends upon knowing the important points on which to judge aud then com paring cars on the basis of these points. It is a question, of having the right stand- ards. A diamond expert will select the one most perfect stone from a handful of dia monds. The horseman, looking over a string of thoroughbreds, will pick out the one or two best horses of the lot. They are able to do this because they know the standards by which to judge a diamond and a horse. The same is true of motor cars. We ask you to compare Chalmers cars care fully with others. We give here a few standards which may help you to get an unusual dollar's worth of value for every dollar you put into your motor car. Simplicity of design i3 one good stan dard. The Chalmers "30" has cylinders cast en bloc. Motor, clutch and transmis sion cast in a unit. Working parts thoroughly protected from dust and yet easily accessible. The Chalmers "30" was the first American car to have all of these features. There is no other car with these features which is so thoroughly tried and proved as the Chalmers. Many cars that looked all right in design failed in use! Whatever you do, buy a proved car. Good looks is another standard. The Chalmers "30" has good looks. It has beautiful lines and it has fine finish. Those who are most competent to judge, say there is no more beautiful car at any price. As for finish, you positively cannot find a car to equal the Chalmers "30" ex cept at nearly double the price. For at tention to details, compare this car with those costing twice and three times as much. Only in that way can you ap preciate how all of the "little things" that seem. so big when neglected have been provided in the Chalmers "30". Ease of control aud comfort for both driver and passengers is one of the best MINOR HINMAN, Agent, North Piatte. Neb. CHALMERS "30" $1,600. Including Bosch magneto, Prest-O-Llte tnnk, gas three oil lamps, horn nnd tools. Detachable fore-doors standards. The Chalmers "30" is easy to control because it has one pedal for brake and clutch; because the control levers are just where you would natural ly reach for them; because of a big steer ing wheel and good steering connections. It is no trick to learn to drive a Chalmers. We guarantee to teach every buyer with out additional expense how to drive and care for his car. This car has a 115 inch wheel base. The body is swung well between the axles. The seats are tilted and have good springs in them. The upholstery is luxur ious. The rear springs are long, three quarter elliptic and of the ' finest steel for the purpose. The majority of auto mobile engineers have voted this type of springs the best. Without fear of contradiction, we say there is no car in the world which is more comfortable under all conditions than the Chalmers "30". Yet the price of this car is only $1600 including Bosch Magneto, gas lamp, Prest-o-lite tank. Weight is another standard. The Chalmers "30" motor is lighter per horse power than any other motor. The complete car is from 200 to 600 pounds lighter than any competing car of the same size and roominess. The "30" has all the weight that comfort and efficiency demand yet no useless weight to consume gasoline and wear out tires. The Factors of Safety are a standard which you should have in mind at all times. The four main factors of safety in any motor car are Frame, Wheels. Brakes, Steering Connections. The Chalmers "30" has the heaviest, strongest frame in proportion to total weight of any car in its class- Relatively this frame is as strong as in any car at any price. These "30" frames are built of special heat-treated steel. They are strong enough to sustain many times the weigh they are called upon to carry. They are staunch and heavy enough to give a feeling of solidarity, without which no car is comfortable, The wheels of the Chalmers "30" are made under the same specifications and of the same material as those on the high est priced cars. The Chalmers "30" has bigger, stronger, quicker-acting brakes than any other car in its class. The design material and construc tion of the steering connections nro no better on any car no matter what the price than on the Chalmers "30". It would be possible to make the steering lamps, $15.00 apparatus of the "30" more costly by put ting more expensive wood in the steering wheel. But this would not make it better in any particular. All steering connections on the Chalmers "30" are protected, and the cress steering rod is back of the front axle, out of danger from Bhocks of the road. Have you ever noticed the difference in the riding qualities of an ordinary tail road coach and a Pullman chair car? The day coach is light. It shakes and rattles. It transmits every inequality of the road bed or the rails straight to the passengers, giving them a succession of jars and vibrations, ,a s The Pullman coach is compact and solid. It goes smoothly at any speed. It is comfortable. It gives a sense of se curity. There is just the same difference be tween riding in the cheaper cars and in the Chalmers. Cars that have light wheels and frames can not be comfort able or safe. You are buying a car to ride in. You will often be in it hours ut a stretch. In sist that it give the utmost comfort You trust your own life and the life of your family to it Insist, therefore, that the factors of safety be of the best design, finest materials and workmanship. We have made strong claims in this advertisement the strongest that could be make for a car. Because we have stated that according to certain important standnrds, the Chalmers "30" is preferable to any other car selling at anywhere near the same price. And in some respects, the equal at least if not the superior of any car made at any price. We have made these statements advisedly. We know that they are right. We could not make them unless we had the car to back them up. The car does back them up. It is the best auto mobile value today. Study it for yourself. Compare it for yourself with others. If you don't agree with us after you have studied the situation, why of course wo cannot hope to sell you a car, But at the same time, we believe that if you do study this automobile question carefully, with the right stan dards in your mind, you will decide the Chalmers "30" is the most you can buy in an automobile for $1600. And that, relatively, it is more than you can buy in any other car, regardless of the price. Come und see these cars as soon as you can. Let us arrange a demonstration at your convenience.
