Citizens State Bank Liberal, Kansas CONSTRUCTION ON - WATER PLANT RUSHED Mayor L. E. Brain is well pleased with the progress being; made on the local . water and light plant to date. Walls of the engine and power plant are oomplete, work ha sbeen finished on the large con crete surface water storage. Fire hydrants and valves are here and five cars of eight-inch pipe for mains are expected daily. Ship ment has been made of the big generator, engines, air lift for bringing the water to the surface from the well, 75,000 gallon water tower and all other machinery nec essary for the completion of the water and light plant. As soon as the plant is finished and the mains installed fqr the distribution of the water, a representative of the state fire marshal's office will make an inspection of the system and the reduction of. fire insurance premiums will then be in order. It has been estimated that the sav ing in insurance premiums in forty years will amount to as much as the cost of the water and light plant in addition to the great convenience of the system. Mayor Brain is giving the installation of the system his personal attention, in order that ex penses may be held to a minimum. Panhandle Herald.

And prior to the Coach, they stuck to open cars. That simply meant they wanted to put their investment in chassis quality and dependability, rather than accept lesser mechanical value in a closed car. Yet everyone wants closed car advantages provided they do not sacrifice chassis value. So a Great Welcome Awaited the Coach Essex invented the Coach to meet this plain demand of thousands. It gives every essential comfort of the costliest closed cars. It is solid, quiet, durable and attractive in looks. Yet of course its greatest value is in the famous Essex chassis which world experts have called Cabriolet, $1145 Fflght and Tom Extra the- finest of its size built. It fully has confirmed that verdict by official proof. In no car can you get more than you pay for.
