3400 r. p. m. Chalmers Means Gallant Going Over All Kinds of Roads
The swift, silent breathing of the unique engine of
the new 3400 r. p. m Chalmers is faster than that of
any other car on the road.
Without gasp or throb, this weird, aluminum-lunged
beast inhales a mist of gasoline through the tiny nostril
in its carburetor so rapidly that it can spin its motor at
the supreme velocity of 3400 revolutions per minute.
High engine speed in a racer means just one thing
track-burning car speed.
But the high-speed engine of the 3400 r. p. m.
Chalmers means automobile attributes not measured in
mere speed alone.
It means the whole gamut of performance most
desired by men and women who demand more from a
car than a beltful of racing records.
Chalmers engineers have translated superlative en
gine -pccd into the composite boon of pick-up, poise,
and power.
Th versatility of this vehicle has won it the vigor

The 3400 r. p. m. Chalmers does everything a car
should do. It wrings 18 miles of gallant going out of
every gallon of gas, a mile a minute if you're keen for
Always there is the feeling of velour beneath my
accelerator foot.
This car has the liveliness of a spirited mare, with a
Pullman -like stability that keeps your back-seat pass
engers from rattling around like peas in a pod, which
happens in so many other light, fast cars.
This able Six is heavy enough and so finely poised
that its four wheels stay always on the ground, with
direction as straight as a bullet.
By transforming this car's superabundance of brute
might into all-round performance, Chalmers engineering
has saved you from .$150 to $200 worth of fuel per year.
So it's a sane and sensible buy from every slant
and the smart ones whose sense of values hasn't been
blunted by prosperity are dropping around with
their check-books.

,$ bond issue for Bell County will
1 be voted on May 13, calling for
I . an issue of bonds to the amount
of $150,000. An election waa
t, held in February, 1916, at which
t time $250,000 was voted. This

j,. on about five miles of road and

The report of the County Trea
surer, as filed a few weeks ago,
shows that of the first issue vot
ed, more than eight thousand
dollars has been spent in inci
dentals; about fifty ttottua1 del
lars in machinery, and about
twelve thousand dollars in engi
neering. This has caused some
comment from taxpayers. There
is mgch speculation as to wheth
er the proposed $150,000 bond
issue will carry.
It has been charged that mon
ey was wasted in useless engi
neering, machinery and other ex
penses, and taxpayers have dir
ected criticism at the county
officials. From The Louisville

We know one thing and know it
