The Mitchell Junior Factory Price"$1195 Effective May 10, 1917, how ever, we will retain the old price of $1150 for 10 days longer. . SUPERLATIVE CARS. WITH EXTRA FEATURES. ADDED LUXURY. OVER-STRENGTH. Mitchells differ in a hundred ways from other cars you see. And each distinction is an added attraction some thing everybody wants. There are 31 features which most cars omit. There are body styles exclusive in Mitchells combining all the luxuries known. There is 100 per cent over-strength in every vital part. " Mr. John W. Bate has worked out in the Mitchells more than 700 improvements. The cars of today show the final result. Each is a study in beauty, in strength, in completeness. -An inspection will delight you. Here are Sixes in two sizes both superlative cars. A roomy 7-passengor Six, with 127-inch wheel base and a highly developed 48-horse power motor, at $14G0. Even the smaller at $1195 has a 120-inch wheel base and a 40-horse power motor. They embody extras, which on this year's output, will cost $4,000,000. You never saw such luxury, such beauty, strength and equipment in cars of tho Mitchell class. Such cars at such prices, in these high-cost times, will seem almost impossible. So we have to explain how it is done. These values result from unique factory efficiency. In the past few years the factory has built and equipped a model automobile plant. Millions have been spent, un der a great efficiency expert, to produce this one type eco nomically. This has cut the factory cost in two. And these savings pay for the extras. In designing these bodies the factory experts exam ined 257 now models, so no attraction has been over looked. No other single car combines so many pleasing features. One hour with us will revise all your ideas of a fine car. J. S. DAVIS AUTO CO. "WE CAN DO IT." Victor Halllgan, Win. II. Hanor, Patai Ohman, Goo. M.
