West iHimmerston : There is a great deal of talk at this season of the year about large and fat hogs, but we think that Hiram F.

II., lectured Monday evening jit Hopkins hall on temperance.

I get about 17 miles to the gallon of gasolene, and about 15(1 miles to the quart of oil. It has been more than satisfactory in every way. The best car on the market." II. E. PUGGEOLI. 131 N.

Much of the workmanship upon which the goodness of a car depends is not seen in any ordinary examination. You see it only in the service of the car.' That is why the ex perience xif owners is valuable in deciding on any cay you buy. It is the most sensible way to learn what you may expect of a car. Make use of it. Ask owners.' Find out what their upkeep expense has been. Has it grown greater as the car grows older? Have the qualities which seemed good when the car was new held up in hard service? Ask owners if they would buy another car of the same make. We would be glad to have you make your decision on that basis what Essex owners think of their cars, compared to the experi ence of owners of other makes. Essex you get even a greater car than the earlier models, which owners still so highly praise. PRICES F. O. B.
