Why We Became HUDSON Super Six Dealers. HUDSON, SUPER SIX J70R years we, as well as you, no doubt, have admired the achievements of the HUDSON SUPER-SIX. We were first at tracted to this world-famous fine car by its speed-way records ? then by what owners ers told us of their cars. j A car that could win so many victories must be superior, we thought. Then came the trans-continental tour. A Hudson touring car crossed and re-crossed the con tinent in 10 days and 21 hours ? a record for time each way never equalled. As You must have Felt. /~\UR admiration for the Super Six grew greater still when we read of its climb to the top of Pike's Peak, leading twenty ether specially built care. And then the praise we heard on every side about the Super-Six determined us to get the Hudson franchise for this territory. It was not easy. Hudson dealers must conform to certain high standards. Everywhere they must be the leading dealers with the largest sense of responsibility and aggressiveness. Hud son dealers have the finest Stores. They give the best service. Only after proving that we measured up to that standard were we chosen. And it is a matter of pride that Hudson selected us. It takes us into the associa tion of the type of automobile merchants who lead. It is a great company's recog nition of our fitness to 6erve you. To-day the Hudson Super-Six leads all motordom in endurance and performance. Its exclusive type motor, minimizing fric tion and vibration as it does, gives the Su jper-Six reserve energy never called for in ordinary service. It is the Pattern Car. IN Style and Design the Hudson Super-Six * has long been the pattern car. Its lines i are always years in advance. What is the ' current model this year was the Hudson rnodel of a year or more ago. Come in and see the Hudson Super-Six at our Store. There are 60,000 in service, i Every road knows the Super-Six, but it is well to refresh your impressions of it in an 1 examination and ride in the present models.

All morning a fever had possessed him to lay aside the pressing work of the day and seek held and meadow. This urgent desire was unaccountable, but at last with an abrupt order to his 8tenogrnpher he closed his desk and went down to where a shining auto mobile waited at the entrance to the oflice building. Tkougli a wealthy man and a ?oc cesaful one In the business world, he Iiad made few friends. So Bruce Williams, rich, still young and good to look upon, went a lonely way. He had wandered carefree through violet-studded meadows, fishing rod over his shoulder, and "the lillTfe home to which he returned nt evening Joy ously weary had seemed always to beckon hitn with Its gleaming porch arms. The little home? so long'einpty I. The man nt nfTalrs thought of It on this mystical spring day with a pang about the heart which had seemed Im mune to softer feeling. And an he dismissed the chauffeur nnd took his place at the wheel he decided suddenly to run out to the country place, forty miles away, where the little house stood. He wondered Idly if Chalmers, his agent, had k?u?t ilie place up. Fur away, crossing the small, rat tling bridge, he could discern the porch arms still finitely beckoning, and with the sight came a past sensation of an ticipated pleasure. Something nice was going to happen. Bruce Wil liams actually smiled. In the old days anticipation had been satisfactorily rewarded with flapjacks for supper or some other treat his mother had In store. But now ? the man's smile changed suddenly to a sigh ? there would be no one to .welcome biuj Id the The Cause of Jones' Fire Sam: I see Jones burned out. Bill: Yes, tossed a match ?way carelessly. Sam: I read it was a leaky flue. Tom: They told me it was faulty insulation. Dick: w I heard a curtain blew into a gas jet. George: No, his wife was clean jig a suit with benzine. Harry : They told tn e a kitchen lamp tipped over. Ned: I heard that it caught from coals in the tf ash box. Bob : %. They say it was from looking into a clothes closet with a lighted candle. The real cause was carelessness ? the cause of 97% of all fires. ? It is to prevent this ? to save lives and property and eliminate fear that the Hartford Company has perfected its Fire Pr? \vention Service. / sHave you heard about it? J If not, let us explain it.

He left his car in the road and as cended the steps; then as bare win dows and floors proclaimed the house vacant, he opened the unlocked door and stepped inside. As he did so he was aware of a sound in the adjacent sitting room, and here upon a ladder before a case of hooks he saw a young woman. She was evidently removing the books from their cases to pack them in a box on the floor. She. turned, startled for a moment by his unexpected entrance. Then she smiled. "1 beg your pardon." said the girl, and some strange wist fulness in voire and sndle impressed Bruce Williams as inexplicably as had the breath of spring. "You are the new tenant* of cours^. We," the sweet voice trembled, "will be ready soon \ to go. Mr. Chalmers said that* you would want Immediate possession. I am afraid I have been very slow in moving but" ? her eyes sought his appealingly ? "I've had ev erything to do myself; you see, father Is an Invalid." Iirucfc Williams came nearer. "Toe v have given up the place?" he n~ked. (A rosy flush swept the irirl's face Through it she looked at him bravely. "We had to give it up," she exploited "because we could no longer make the payments on our home. So Mr. t'linl liters foreclosed. An accident, making father an invalid, and I his constant nurse, frustrated our cherished p!;:ns. It has all heeti very unfortunate, but ? we^shall got along somk way. "l>o you like flowers?" she asked suddenly. "My garden has nlways been beautiful. Many of the plants will come up again. Father wished me to keep it Just as It used to be years ago, when an old neighbor of his lived here." With an eagerness he bail not known for years the mart of affairs looked Into the winsome girl's face. "Were there hollyhocks along the paths In those days?" he asked, "and a creeper lose growing against the upper rear window?" "Why, yes." the girl replied. She came down the ladder. "And ? did your father by any chance mention that same old neigh bor's son? A happy-go-lucky boy, awakening jpvery morning to the sight of the rose in the window?" The girt nodded and stalled her wist ful smile. "They tell me," she said, "that the boy went away and became a rich man ? successful ? and hard, Probably he has forgotten Ids humble home and the roses that grew in the window." "Y<*t ? If he could come back to It as It used to be. Just for a day," ? murmured the man, the stern lines of his face softening. "You see," be duaea, "i nappen to t>e ? tnat boy. And If you .and your father could be per suaded to stay ou here, as caretakers In a way, preserving for tue the old house and garden, it would give to me more real pleasure than 1 can ex press." ? The girl looked back at him. "Oh !" she said, "if you really mean that, we would be so glad to make It as it used to be." "With an old welcome when/ I cotne?" asked the man whimsically. "Welcome from every rose and hol lyhock," smiled the girl. And ns Bruce Williams rode away he coula see her vstill standing in the old house doorway, and he kuew that the porch arm would beckon him In sistently until ? he came again. Owrlctit. 13419, by Wwtara Ncwipiptr OaM*.) EZRA PROVED TRUE PROPHET His Prediction That Funeral and Mar riage Were Before Him Turned Out to Be Exact. T,ast week n friend drifted in frnra the Oid dome Town, now 'JO years hack of me. and we had a season of gossip about the old acquaintances which was soul satisfying. S:>tne of the stories 'were pathetic, some were /sordid, some were humorous, but ali of ihern illustrated phases of life in a country town. Perhaps this one about Ezra was the best. When I left the Old Home Town Ezra was the possessor of a wife whom he had had for 25 years or more, and who was in fairly good condition, although a little deaf, as might well be. for no woman ever talked more fluently or more willingly than did her husband. For some rea son she was taken ill and died, and Ezra mourned her for a time, not an exceedingly long time, and then he be gan to take notice and presently mar ried again. This wife No. 2 was, of course, a later model, but she. too, fell ill, and the physician advised an operation. Ezra hired an automobile and went with her to the hospital, where the physicians told him that there was lit tle hope that she would recover. He went home sorrowfully, and Anally he hroke out to the driver in this way: "Good Lord. I've got to go through It all again ? bury this wife and then jfet another one!" And he was a true prophet for things happened Just as he predicted. ? Hartford Courant. ANY FOOL CAN FIND FAULT Practically Impossible for Any Prop osition, However Good, to De Absolutely Without Flaw. There is nothing however good but a person may )find some fault in it if he is determined to do so. There is nothing perfect that is of man's mak ing. There Is nothing that man origin ates or performs but what contains more or less of his weakness. Worth, like water, must stay below the level of its source. It is quite natural that a person should dissent. The scientists dispute as much as the theologians. Every time one obtains a new stand point he changes his opinion. Every time he meets a friend he finds that he differs. So we must make up our mfnds to disagree in t lie right spirit, observes the Ohio State Journal. If we don't do that and our disagreement falls into ill will and anxiety, then we become enemies of the truth and social pests Im sides. The person we earnestly ami candidly disagree with may be Nright and ourselves wholly wrong. It would make us feel very absurd* sometimes Vi the midst of a violent controversy, to have n sudden light let in on the fontroversy and show our adversary entirely right. The s?t?est thing, so far as one's conduct toward him is con cerned is to remember he may be right and treat him accordingly. Now Make Good. 1919 Lies Before You.
