I ffEF" 2ND INDUSTRY j 'I Quality First I A LITTLE MORE QUALITY ALWAYS PAYS A friend of mine bought a lawn mower, j ; I forget what he paid, but it was the ) j cheapest he could find. ; He cut his lawn twice, then took the lawn mower to the repair shop. Every time he finished mowing the grass f the cheap machine had to go hack to the repair shop to he sharpened or tuned. "That's the most expensive lawn mower II ever owned" he told me one day. He had learned the lesson I've been trying to teach people about motor cars. And that lesson is the cheapest car is often the most expensive. It pays enor mously to pay a little more. By paying $1090 for a Chalmers, for example, you get a five-year car. A car that will do everything you expect of it for at least five years. And at the' end of that time it will be in fair condition. The motor it's the famous 3400r.p.m. Itwill never worry you. Never cause you to lose your temper, ' For it has been tested in the hands of. 30,000 owners and found 99.21 percent perfect.

Taylor claims that the Oakland car carries an exception ) ally high-speed motor and that in all other respects it is the ideal automo bile for practical service. Further H"ai in. i discussing the merits o' the car Mr. Taylor says: "As an example of advanced engi neering practice the Oakland high sped motor must attract your special notice. "The high cost of gasoline, and the extravagant taxation on large bore motors. that obtain throughout Europe first brought forth ,'the idea of the high speed motors. "The first true example of this type beginning of the 1914 season to meet was adopted and developed in this country by Oakland engineers at the the new standards of efficiency. "This season its successor is highly developed and refined. "The term "High Speed," applies to the speed of the motor, not to the speed of the car." oo YELLOWSTDE TOUR OF SCENIC BEAUTY Trip Made by Eighty-five Mo torists From Twin Cities; New Roads Built for the Occasion; Chalmers The Pilot Car. Piloted by the Chalmers Six-30 which blazed the Twin-Cities to Yellowstone route two months ago, sighty-five tourists in 27 motor car9 checked in at Gardiner and enrolled as enthusisatic boostesr of the Na tional Parks Highway. Most remarkable among the fea. tures of the tour was the fact that many of the roads encountered had been laid out almost over night. When the Chalmers Pathfinder blazed the trail in May. detours f,or washouts were a mattor of course. Yet six weeks later the big tour went through on schedule over 1,200 miles of roads closely skin to boulevards. That .the Yellowstone tour opens a route of infinite variety to American motorists is conceded by all who made the run. From time Minnespohs dropped behind on the horizon until Gardiner Gateway have In. view, the tourists ran the whole gamut of American topography. Lakes, plans, mountains and valleys came In turn, and the trip through the Bad Lands of North Dakota and Montana proved to be the most unusual and spectacu lar eye opener to the Yankee tourist in his home country. Leaving Minneapolis on the morn ing of Julv 20th, the tour quickly proved to be a de luxe event instead of a hardship. To boost the cause of the National Parks Highway, the Northern Pacific road had furnished a special train which met the tourists at the noon and night .controls. In this train, equipped with two diners and numerous Pullmans, the tourists had their meals and slept comfor tably at night. The train accmpain ed the tour to Gardiner and there awaited the completion of the five day trip through the park Many of the tourists shipped their cars to Miiinneapolis and returned on the SPNoon control on the first day was at St Cloud. Minnesota, and the lourists reached Staples late in the afternoon. Commencing at Staples and continuing throughout the tour, a series of entertainments had been arranged at every control and were thoroughly enjoyed by the motorists Passing through Detroit, the tour was quartered at Fargo on the night of julv 21st. Here President W . Smith of the National Parks Highway and secretary J. P. Hardy of the Far go Commercial Club joined the tour in President Smith's Chalmers Six. From Fargo to Bismark, a 210 mile run confronted the tourists. Any doubt as to the condition of the roads for so long a run were quickly dis pelled when the fine trail through the Irreat grain-producing belt west of Fargo was traveled. Every car made the schedule before 6 p. m. Into the state capital. Here North Dakota s chief executive, Governor L. B. Hanna, added his Chalmers car to the rapidly growing list of entries. The gover nor's wife and family accompained liini on the trip. Passing through the prosperous towns of Mandan, Glen Ullen, the tour i ii imi 11 r nm Chandler Sales are Made While Salesmen Kick 1 1 While two disgruntled automobile salesmen were doing their best I j I a few days ago to make, up a MALIGNANT ADVERTISEMENT I ft I against us in a morning paper, we were busy TAKING ORDERS I j I FOR CHANDLER MACHINES.

Just west of Dickinson, the celebrated Bad Lands, famed for the prediction that motor cars would never penetrate their fastnesses, awaited the tourists. About eight miles from Dickinson next morning, the cars entered this fascinating region with Its irregular bounderies and strange freaks of for mation. Drained by the mud-laden Little Missouri river, this section of Uncle' Sam's domain is as unlike any other stretch of American territory ns sections of India or Africa. Press agents have renamed the district "Pyramid Park" but the collection of flat-topped buttes, gorges and beds of lignite coal will probably continue to be called the Bad Lands for some years to come. The name comes from the cognomen applied by the Indians and old voyageurs Bad Lands to Travel Through. The tourists, how ever found them excellent lands to travel through and fen joyed the scenery hugely. At Medora, the capital of the Bad Lands and the former homo of Theo dore Roosevelt in his ranching days, a double decked ceremony awaited the visitors. In the morning Gover nor Hanna officially dedicated the new bridge over the Little Missouri river, the last link in the National Park Highway. Led by George Gard ner, formerly with Buffalo Bill, a band of cowboys formed the appro priate body guard for the governor at the ceremony. In the afternoon the motorists attended the Frontier Days show, a red letter date on Medora's calendar, and had their first glimpse of real western wranglers in action. From Medora, the tour crossed over Into Montana, stopping at Miles City the next evening. The route through Montana is extremely picturesque and brought Into view the first real mountains of the tour. Billings and Livingston were the next night con trols, both cities extending unlimited hospitality. At Livingston, the tourists were warned that gasoline was selling for 60 cents a gallon within the borders of Yelowstone Park. Many took advantage of the Information and carried an extra supply of gas Into the Park. The short trip from Livingston to Gardiner through Yankee Jim's canyon and interesting of thej entire tour. Heavy rains rendered cautious traveling on the steep mountain roads necessary, but the cars pulled through without mishap. Retracing Its path over the route laid out in May the pilot car led the way through the highest points in Yellowstone Park. Once within the gateway, -the average altitude was over 6,500 feet and-Jn crossing the continental divide a , height of 8,265 feet was reached. Despite the great er tendency of water to boil a high altitudes, the Chalmer's cooling was perfect, and it was possible to place a hand on the. radiator without dis comfort at all times. Before passing' through the Gardin er entrance to Yellowstone, the auto mobile tourist pays Uncle Sam a fee of $7.50. Each tourist must register his name and address on entering and leaving the park. Once in the park he travels on an easy schedule which permits him to see all points of Inter est without undue haste. One glance at the jolting, lurching oaches drawn by horses, which for years have con trolled traffic through the park, con vinces the visitor that their days are numbered. In the motor car the tourist travels more swiftly and com fortable and enjoys that privacy which is impossible under the old re gime. Restrictions on motor cars in the park are a trifle irksome at the present time, but new rules will un doubtedly be made before another season. Opened to automobllists for the first time this season, record numbers of motor cars have passed through the Gardner Gateway. It is not two much to say that next sea son should see more tourists at Yel lowstone than on the Ideal tour or other eastern routes. The trip through the land of geysers and canyons must be seen to be appreciated. oo 1TI1 ID STATE Mil ROADS Co-operation Proving Advan tageous to the Good Roads Project; No "Pork Bar rel" Highway Officials Pleased. Motorists generally are sanguine that the roads co-operation just es tablished between the national gov ernment and the several states will accomplish a big step toward the evo lution of a federal system of high ways which "will connect the differ ent sections of the country as effec tively as the French plan of national routes. "The most refreshing feature of the Federal Aid Road Act Is its freedom from the taint of 'pork barrel," com ments Chairman George C. Diehl of the Good Roads Board of the Ameri can Automobile association, which worked so persistently for the mea puro along with the American Asso ciation of State Highway Officials. "An automatic chock is placed upon any raid on the United States trea sury," continues the road authority, "Jn requiring that the states must match real federal dollar with at least an equal amount. Of course, this means that the state will n6t squander Its money for makeshift construction or repair. The law further guards agaluBt 'pork barrel' by requiring all of the co-operation to be between the state highway departments and the secretary of agriculture.' No political official has any power over the work at all, and It Is a credit to the 'mem bers of congress that they have so worded the act as to make the state the smallest unit of co-operation rath- er than the conjo-esalonal district or I The Apperson Roadaplane I I A 1917 MODELS 1 I The Apperson Roadaplane represents the last word in body construction and is most complete in its accessory equipment and in the adoption of every comfort and laborsaving device imag fl inable.

I I ( Manufacturers I KOKOMO, INDIANA. I H the county. The Federal Aid road law is fundamentally as sound as any measure that could be enacted, and its only -weakness, other than those oC a minor icharacter, Is in Its failure to require iron-clad assurance from the states that the roads will be properly maintained. Abundant and beneficlent results should flow from this legislation during the next few years." Putting this great new policy into operation involving an outlay of $85, 000,000 o government money has made the U. S. office of. public roads and rural engineering about the busi est bureau here in the government son-ice. While the Federal Aid road law designates the secretary of agrl I culture as the executive officer for I carrying out the act, he will very largely meet this requirement through the' agency of the public roads office, of which Logan "Waller Page is the director. The first step In getting the -work under way -was. the issuance by the secretary of agriculture of a formal certificate to the secretary of the treasury, the state highway depart ments and the governors of states, showing the exact amount which each state will receive for the first year of the law's operation. Rules and regulations for the administration of the act have been completed in ten tative form, and these are to be dls icussed with state highway, officials at a conference to be held In Washing ton, August 1C, so all of the states may have an opportunity to set forth their position with reference to each and every point before the secretary of agriculture adopts and promul gates the rules and regulations in of ficial form. Expanding the organization to In spect and safeguard the tremendous expenditure of federal funds is a task of no small magnitude, for while the Federal Aid act leaves to the states the making of surveys and plans, and the actual supervision of the work, yet it requires of the federal government very thorough inspection and approval at every stage of the work. This means that a relatively large force of engineers must be em ployed, and their distribution so ax ranged as to take care of projects In all parts of the country with the rrrpnlpnf. rinRRihlo pnonnmif nP llmo anrl money, consistent with efficiency. Many appointments will be made from an examination for the position of senior highway engineer that iclosed August 8. "As examples of the multitude of details that must be worked out," says Mr. Page. "I might mention that we are called upon to answer hun dreds of inquiries covering every phase of the operation of the new road law. Wo must establish an adequate accounting organization for handling the federal expenditures, and to keep track of the joint state and federal outlays; we must expand our filing system; see that all doubtful points of law are construed by the law officers of the government, and we must work out all of the forms and procedure to expedite the co operation between the state highway departments and the department of agriculture. In spite of these many vexing details and the magnitude of the undertaking, us a whole, we ex pect to have acual road work under way in at least a few of tho states be fore winter sets in." the new ma CM BEAT II TURTLE Manager A. W. Schooler of the Ap person Auto Motor Gar company of this city is very modest in Mb-praises of the Apperson car. but ho elves some very convincing facts respecting its merits. He states that all stand ard made cars are good, but that some are a little bettor than other, among them being the Apperson. Mr. Schooler rather factlously com pares the movement of his car with the turtle, saying the Apperson does not have to take nearly as many steps In a mile as that crawling ani mal. He says that the Turtle takes 31,680 steps in a mile, the Apperson makes It with only a comparatively few strokes of the cylinders. The 1917 eight clips off a mile in fast time, much faster than tho average motorist cares to travel. "We had every right to be proud of the eight cylinder Apperson car offered a year ago," says Mr. School er, "and we are doubly proud of tho Apperson of all cylinders as it is made today. Tho eight cylinder car of to- day is the equal of the best eight "H cylinder car you may have In mind no exceptions are made. Ever since the first job was turned out a year ago, we have been on the lookout for every conceivable thing which would fH help to give the car the position it deserves." oo liH Flapper (romanticalljO Oh, moth-. er, I want to rise to higher things.
