3 CENTS WORTH OF
Miracle Motor Gas
Equals a Gallon of Gasoline
With the present cost of gasoline
making serious inroads on the average
motorist's pocketbook, the field for a
good gasoline saver is almost unlimit
ed, and motorists have been looking
around to find some harmless chemical
that will cut down their fuel bills, give
their motor more power and insure
smooth running by cleaning the cylin
ders of carbon.
Miracle Motor-Gas, sold in this com
munity at Princeton Harness shop,
has solved the problem.
Mr. John Thoma states that the
chemical constitution of Miracle Mo
tor-Gas is absolutely harmless, and
this assertion is backed by the experi
ments of well-known chemists and auto
experts. They offer in Miracle Motor
Gas an auxiliary product that will re
place what the low gravity gasoline
of 62 degrees lacks to give the satis
factory results that we got from 76
degree gasoline sold several years ago
before motoring became so general
and the price of fuel advanced. It
contains properties which act upon the
molecular construction of the fuel,
producing comolete combustion- mak-
ing every drop produce powerutiliz
ing that heavy, inert oil that all low
gravity gasoline contains, converting
it into power or driving it out through
ihe exhaust pipes, leaving no carbon
Tests on various makes of cars in
every section of the country have
shown remarkable results from the
use of Miracle Motor-Gas, the mileage
on cars per gallon increasing as high
as 50 per cent, while the action of
Miracle Motor-Gas prevented carbon
from forming on the cylinders. Cars
under experiment showing easier hill
climbing ability, faster ignition and
greater all-around power.
Sample packages of this gas will be
distributed free on Saturday, August
About half a dozen potato buyers

fairly good although some of the stock
The Dowden No. 1 Digger
To many people all makes of Potato Digger look alike. There
is, of course, a likeness, as all elevator diggers have wheels, shovels
and conveyor chains, etc., but we all know there is a vast difference in
material, workmanship, the plan of construction and the vital point of
efficiency. Why take a chance on a potato digger that has not stood
the test of time A poor potato digger will at its best last possibly
one. two or more years, but ours has stood the test of thirty years.
You take absolutely no chance when you take the digger shown
hereon as, for instance, taking 17,000 diggers in operation, as a basis,
the upkeep of each* digger was but $1.85 for 1916. No other digger
made can show any such record.
"This digger is adapted to rough work and will dig under more
and varied conditions than any other digger made.
