Spent Yearly 1
the Long-*
On Reo the Fifth we spend
$2,000,000 yearly more than
we need to spend. That is,
more than it would cost if
built by lesser standards.
This extra cost goes into
finer parts, into margins of
safety, into costly materials.
It goes into exactness, into
slow, careful building. We
I spend six weeks on each car.
It goes into fitting every
part of the car to meet our
| most radical tests.
For Your Safety
and Saving
The result is vast overcapacity
? averaging 50 per
cent. It means safety and
comfort, and the saving of
trouble and upkeep. It means
a car that stays new.
In this model plant, by
special machinery and by efficiency,
we have brought the
price below many lesser cars.
, The price, with full equipI
ment, is $220 less than it used

AUTOMOBILE NOTES. .
It is estimated that the German arms
is using more than 10,000 motor trucks
while the allies are using about 14,000
Check nuts are used to preven
threaded connections from working
loose on account of vibration.
The tightening of set screws is on<
of the hardest uses to which a wrencl
is put, and the average wrench is noi
strong enough for this duty, therefor*
the reason for a line of single ant
double end set screw wrenches espe
cially designed for this work.
A New York court has helH that whet
a motorist has an unobstructed vie^
along: a street containing car tracki
for 200 feet and he starts across with'
out again looking for a trolley, he it
not negligent as a matter of law, sinc<
no car could then be in a dangeroui
proximity unless it was being run a
an unlawful speed.
European factories in the majorit:
of instances are already so disruptet
that it will take six months or a yeai
to get well reorganized. Much nev
help will have to be taken on to fll
the places of those who went to th<
front but never returned. Americai
makers have a fighting chance, bu
they must be ready with the goodi
and with the business arrangements.
When a car has been in service fo:
some time it generally develops an
noying little squeaks here and then
about the springs and body. The own
er or driver will find it well wortl
while to get rid of these, as the laboi
involved is slight, and a quiet, smooth
1 running car is always desirable
Squeaks can generally be remedied b:
tightening the car parts affected, o
by the application of a little adhesive
tape.
Preliminary steps have been takei
for the organization of a new auto
mobile club in New York city. Promi
nent members and officers of auto
mobile clubs situated in the vicinit:
of New York city are interested ii
the project. It is proposed to call th<
new organization the Automobile Clul
of New York City. Its members wil
automatically become members of th<
State Association and of the Americai
Automobile Association.
While the sand blast had its origii
in the foundry for the cleaning o
castings, its many advantages foi
cleaning or surfacing in all branchei
of metal working have given it a mucl
wider use, especially in the motor cai
line. Uncle Sam even demanded tha
the gates of the Gatun locks of th<
Panama canal be sand-blasted befor<
painting. Makers of automobile bodies
in steel and aluminum are surfacing
them before painting.
During the one year that {he Lincolr
Highway Association has been in ex

miles have been marked for the guidance
of the tourist, while roads conr
necting with the highway have also
been marked and are being improved.
One of the advantages claimed for
the full-floating type of rear axle is
\ that in the event of trouble in the
? transmission it is an easy matter to
remove the driving shafts and tow the
car home on the idle wheels. It is not
" generally appreciated, however, that
! the same applies to the ordinary semi[
floating system. With this arrange:
ment, it is possible to clear one or
both of the rear wheels of the driving
relation merely by removing the wheel
and taking out the driving key so that
j it will turn on the shaft.
g In a sort of fatherly manner, the State
Department has advised manufacturers
" of motor cars, especially armored
4 motor cars, to do a little less shouting
jj about the orders received by them from
t foreign governments at this time.
While it is good business policy on the
part of the manufacturers to tell the
American people about the way in
J which the foreign military advisers ap1
preciate the American motor truck,
^ such publicity places the State Depart1*
ment in an extremely embarrassing
1 position. "What we don't know won't
5 worry us!" is possibly the attitude of
J the State Department. But if the alleged
orders for this "contraband" are
8 heralded in all the papers, how can
the department be expected to remain
inactive?

SAFES THAN HOSSE.
Illinois Coroner Says Accidents by
Auto Are Fewer.
As a part of street traffic, the automobile
is safer for the pedestrian than
the horse. Peter M. Hoffman, coroner
of Cook county, HL, sets forth this fact
in his biennial report on the deaths due
to accidental causes in the city of Chicago
and its environs for the year 1913.
For each 5,000,000 miles traveled by
motor vehicles there were 12.6 accidents,
as against 26.55 for horse-drawn vehicles.
In the city of Chicago and its environs,
according to the report, there are 37,406
power vehicles and 65,1 IS horse-drawn
vwuiv^o. me uiui> niuiviuuHi mneage
of these is 42 and 12, respectively. Kach
day fhe total mileage of these vehicles
collectively is 1,571,502 miles for motor
cars, as against 781,416 miles for horsedrawn
conveyances, or about twice as
many miles for the automobile. Yet for
the past four j'ears accidents due to
horse-drawn vehicles have averaged 4.15
daily, while those due to motor cars
have been 3.96.

Returned From Long Trip.
willlam P. Barnhart returned Friday
morning from an extended territory
trip in the interest of the King car,
which he represents. He opened agencies
in Charles Town, Parkersburg,
Clarksburg. Martinsburg, Huntington,
West Va., and Dillinville and Marietta,
Ohio, securing a large number of orders
for the 1915 line.
Automobiles in War Zone.
Automobiles were never so closely
watched and never so highly appreciated
in Europe as at present. With railroad
communication cut, with people fleeing in
terror, with fierce fighting on every hand,
the possession of a car is considered a
valuable asset. The few old-school army
officer* who swore by horses and plenty
of men have Anally had to admit that
their methods are out of date. The automobile
is as valuable, if not more valuable,
at this present moment, than the
railroad. Because they recognize their
value for good or for evil, the authorities
in France have imposed hard restrictions
on the use of cars. "No man can
use a car unless he has a special permit

fast for a stock car. The
Overland chassis was equipped with a
special racing body and wire wheels.
The same car had no difficulty in repeating
the victory in the ten-mil*
race, which was won in the fast time of
8.30. An accident, in which several of
the cars were permanently disabled,
prevented the completion of the
twenty-mile event.
