REO CARS FOR CUSTO AS SOON AS7HEY The wisdom and fdtethought ot tne Harrisburg Automobile Company in se curing a trainload of automobiles the first part of March, and storing them in the big warehouse on Tenth street, anticipating the spring nish, has proven a boon to the numerous people who are going to buy Reos just as soon as the robins eome. Just about one-half of these 51 cars have been taken out and delivered to customers in this territory. Nineteen have been taken out so far in April. It is a mighty nice thing to be able to get your favorite car the day you want it.

Several months ago there emerged from the Funeral Range, on the west side of Death Valley, a prospector who wae all but dead from exhaustion. Only the knowledge of having discov ered a rich gold mine spurred him on to safety. , But when he recovered sufficiently to go and claim his riches, he was faced with the problem of transporta tion. Wu'gons were impossible—the grades were too steep. Pack mules would not do —the animals needed more water themselves than they could carry (between wells. Motor trucks of the "ordinary type were tried, but they all quit at "the first steep grade. Then came the tip from Uncle Ssra. One of the army officers at San Diego told of a new type of motor truck called the Quad, which drives, brakes antl Steers on all four wheels and which was recently adopted by the 1 United States government for use in I the quartermaster and signal corps of \ the American army. This truck, he i said, waded Hjht through sand or | roadless country wherever there was a holding bottom and eimply laughed at ; the hills. So the Death Valley miner tried a j Quad, which he operated between his mine and Zabriskie, a little town on j the Tonopah and Tidewater railroad. | Soon he had an offer of $70,000 for I his property aud sold out. The next ; owner had carried away $80,0(M) worth i of ore with the Quad when he got an j offer of $130,000 which he accepted, j Still another change of ownership j came when the price was boosted to $310,000. But.the present owner is; not talking sale. Instead, he has ! bought two more Quad« and his for tune will soon be reckoned in mil- j lions.—Advi* MOTORCYCLE Wd \ Already entries have been re- I ceived for the one-day motorcycle re- ! liability run of the Grand Rapids, (Mieh.)

When you can get from twenty to twenty-four miles on a gal lon of gasoline with five passengers, it pays the public to buy an automo bile of this character. The makers acknowledge that the carburetor on the Haynes is of a re markably fine type, not usually found on a car of this price, the Bayfield, and that the Haynes is constructed from radiator to rear axle of the very best possible material, all of which is in perfect alignment and bearings ground to a micrometer fit. There isn't any doirbt but that the Haynes is built not just to sell but to make the owner more enthusiastic than owners generally get and to have his enthusiasm increased instead of decreased. Many a man is greatly pleased with his car when he gets ft but has a dif ferent tune to sing six or nine mouths after he has owned it. It is not that way with the Haynes. The longer the customers have Haynes cars the bet ter pleased they are. Roberts and Hoin, local dealers, say that the Haynes is the best and light est six-eylinder ear made at the pres ent time, that it will go up any hill faster at high gear, faster at second gear, fastej at low gear, also slower at high gear and that it will go farther on a gallon of gasoline than any other six-cylinder car of any weight made, has been proven.—Adv.* i f « .
