Buy Your Automobile Ij
From a Strong Dealer
In buying an automobile the standing of the j ;; o
dealer is quite as important as is the car.
Even a poor car with a good dealer back of
it may give satisfaction. And a good dealer with
a good car is an unbeatable combination.
The standing of the Hudson agency in Harris
burg motor circles is unquestioned. Many buy
ers in this community accept without question Uj
or investigation ,on their part, the cars we recom

Dill's minute-attention and service added to the
value of the HUDSON Six form a combination unap

Race Drivers to Equip
Cars With Miller Tires
That the time for the 1914 interna
tional sweepstake races is drawing
near is being brought forcibly to mind
by the fact that many of the speed
kings are making final arrangements
for their tire equipments.
According to reports received from
the Miller Rubber Company, Akron,
Ohio, makers of Miller tires, negotia
tions are being made by eight of the
drivers in the coming race to use Mil
For some time Miller tires have
held the world's road race recards for
endurance. Last year in the Vander
bilt, and the year previous in the In
dianapolis race Teddy Tetzlaff's car
was equipped with Miller tires, when
the unbroken record of 78.7 miles per
hour was reached, and so far this re
mains untouched here or abroad.
In the last Vanderbilt cup race the
Marmon car driven by Guy Ball, and
the Alco piloted by Billy Taylor were
both equipped with Miller tires and
went the entire distance, 403 miles,
with but one change.
The successes that have attended
these tires during the last few years is
attributed mainly to the process of
manufacture. The makers claim that
their method is the proper way for
curing and that it maintains the na
tural quality in rubber and gives good
service on both road and track.
They use single cure wrapped tread
method of construction, which is an
exclusive process for making the
strong and durable rubber in their
Cadillac Fire Truck Runs
23 Miles in 31 Minutes
Fire fighting i* being rapidly revo
i lutionized by the automobile or rao
j tor driven apparatus and with the sen
; sational feats these vehicles are per
forming nearly every day it seems
likely that the horse will soon be aban
: doned as a part of a fire department's
equipment because of comparative in
efficiency. Fast runs by automobile
apparatus also diminish the possible
loss from fire and in time will un
doubtedly affect insurance rates.
Amarillo, Texas, rec .tly provided a
spectacular example of what can be
done in this line of public service. A
fire truck built on a stock Cadillac
chassis and carrying, with hose, lad
ders, chemicals and tools, an over
load of 1,200 pounds and* with a total
| weight of 6,000 pounds, made a re-
I markable run to the State Normal
I fire, covering a distance of twenty-
I three and two-tenths miles in thirty
; one minutes. The last nine miles were
: done in ten minutes and the average
j speed was forty-six miles an hour.
,The run was made over country roads,
over hills and through canyons and
I around twelve short turns.

OLD BETSEY AMONG
Apperson Exhibit Car of 1907 Vin
tage Takes Place of Usual
The big shipping list of Apperson
Bros. Auto Co., at Kokomo, Ind., each
week taxes the railroads of that city
to the limit. Ordinarily the railroad
service Is quick and fast, but a few
days ago the Panhandle and Clover-
Leaf swfteh engines got into a little
mix-up at a crossing with the result
that both were temporarily disabled.
There was no way to set cars for the
Apperson loading crew. Still, shipments
had to be made— and one particu
lar rush job for the Southwestern
Along side the loading platform was
a string of six freight cars, loaded with
meat, farm machinery and merchandise
ready to be pulled out. At the tall end
of this line was an automobile
"empty" that was intended for the rush
shipment above mentioned. The prob
lem was to get the six loaded cars out
of the way and "set" the empty. And
this without an engine.
Right here is where "Old Betsey" got
busy. "Old Betsey" Is an old 1907
"Jack Rabbit" that was exhibited at
the New York Show in that year, sold
to a customer and, after giving a num
ber of years of faithful service, was re
turned to the factory to finish out her
days us a truck. Two hundred thou
sand Is a conservative estimate of the
miles she has traveled.
The Apperson loading crew is re
sourceful. The automobile had to lip
shipped. That ended the matter as far
as they were concerned, so calling on
"Old Betsey" they rigged up a push
pole to her front axle, with the other
end of it against the back of the third
loaded car (after having uncoupled the
third and fourth cars) put six huskv
loaders on the rear end of the truck to
keep the wheels down and opened the
"Old Betsey" responded nobly and
without a miss. She buckled to the
job and pushed those three loaded cars
on up the track, came hack and took
the next three and then "set" the
i * n approved switch eneine
style. The total weight moved at each
time was approximately 370.000 pounds.

Starting and Lighting
System of Jackson Cars
All Jackson motors are built with
tho electric cranking and lighting sys
tem. Current is generated by a dyna
mo driven from the battery to crank
the motor and light the lamps when
the car is not running. The system
operates on six volts, and the wiring
consequently is simple and direct. The
electric cranking motor is mounted
vertically at the front end of the en
gine. On the lower end of the arma
ture shaft is a worm gear, which en
gages a large gear on the counter
shaft. Above and below the worm
gear on the armature shaft are ball
bearings, which prevent wear and keep
the worm in perfect mesh with the
gear. Keyed to the large gear is a
small sprocket. A roller chain runs
from this sprocket to the free mem
ber of the ratchet starting clutch.
This member of the ratchet clutch is
free to revolve on the shaft, while
the other member moves in and out
of engagement on the splined start
ing shaft with which it rotates. When
the clutch is not engaged, the motor
is entirely free from the starting
mechanism, and can rock back and
forth with restriction. The foot switch
in the floor board controls both the
clutch and the starting motor. When
the switch is first depressed the teeth
of the clutch are brought into engage
ment, then the electric contact is made
which sends the current into the start
ing motor and cranks the engine.
The convenience and economy of
electric lights has done more to make
night driving a pleasure than any oth
er single development of Jackson de
sign. The powerful electric headlights
throw a flood of brilliant white light
as far ahead on the road as the
driver can see. The lights are con
trolled by the touch of a button on the
dash, and the storage battery from
I which they draw their current is kept
I fully charged by the dynamo driven
from the motor.
Slow Speed Is Best Test
of Modern Automobile
No longer does the automobile dem
onstrating driver "hit her up" to show
prospects how tine a car he sells.
Speed has been banished into the
limbo of the "has been" and the "once
was." The modern motorcar sales
man has learned that the best possible
test of the efficiency of a motorcar is
the slow speed. Not how fast, but
how slow is the cry. The tremendous
growth of the modern American eitv,
and the need for a car that will op
orate under difficult traffic conditions
has made necessary a motor that will
pull the car steadily, smoothly, with
out Jerk or vibration at speeds as low
as two and three miles an hour on
high gear. Only thus can best results
be had and only thus can the pleasure
of driving a car in the city be retain
ed. Tills change in demonstrating
methods has been brought about bv
car buyers themselves. They liav»
learned that when the law limits
speeds to a maximum of hardly more
than twenty-five miles per hour in
almost every part of the country, it
j avails little that their car is capable of
high speeds of sixty or seventy miles

per hour. They have learned that the
real test of the good car is the slow
speed. Yet tricky drivers of a car that
fulls in a slow speed test are able to
"put it over" on their prospect unless
watchfulness is exercised. An expert
driver can so manipulate his clutch
pedal, cutout and throttle that the car
will travel at a slow speed. At the
same time the noise of the open ex
haust drowns out the sound of the
gear and the slipping clutch and the
prospect is led to believe that the car
is traveling at a speed much lower
than it really would if the clutch were
fully engaged and the cutout silent.
Of course, says I. W. Dill, the local
Hudson distributor, who explained
the novel idea, this slipping of the
clutch and clever scheming of the
driver is only needed where a oar is
incapable of meeting the test of slow
speed. On cars like the Hudson Six
-40 or Six-G4 where the six-cylinder
motor will pull the car steadily at as
low a speed as two miles per hour no
such tricky devices are necessary. And
the remedy is to let the prospect drive
the car. There is then a fair and un
prejudiced opportunity for him to see
just what the motor will go. And he
cannot be deceived by the expertness
of the driver.
