demonstrated, and
the unmistakable evidence of the supe
riority of this method of transporta
tion over all others is still \u25a0 further
strengthened. '.-Under, the direction of
W. H. Thompson, sales manager of the
Standard motorcar company, a Frayer-
M"iller truck has just succeeded in haul-
Ing 5,000 pounds of cement to the top
of Twin peaks for the big reservoir be
ing constructed there by the city. The
haul was made from the ferry and was
completed in 41 minutes. Those ac
quainted with the progress of'automo
bile affairs can remember that less
than two years ago- the Twin peaks
climb was rated the supreme test for
the most, powerful, touring cars. . The
first machine to reach the. summit, al
though It carried practically no load,
was lieralded as the acme of perfec
tion in auto possibilities and. was the
Chief topic ' of- discussion In local auto
circles for weeks afterward.- - In view
of this the achievements the Frayer-
Miller loaded, as It-was, with two and
i half tons, signifies the wonderful
advances' that, the last two years have
brought in motor car construction. ..

The car was designed ;: by ; the White

between the railroad station and Buf

It was Colonel Cody's idea to have the
car fitted up with all the luxuriousness ;
of a parlor car, and in carrying out
this Idea he had the: word /'Pahaska"
printed in: gilt letters on each panel,
and in smalF letters- the words "Buffalo
