Distributors If, out of the millions of car owners of this country, only a small percent age were to practice thrift In the use of gasoline, the consumption would he greatly reduced and the cost cheap cued accordingly; for the high prices must of necessity be traceable to tho huge and lnsatlble demand that results from the hundreds of thousands of cars used dally When a motor car was a new thing, gas was obtainable at a price that would make the heart of the present day motorist leap with joy and little thought given to Is economy; but ns it goes up and up, care must of neces sity be used if the cost of motoring doe-, not become prohibitive. It has been stated ou good authority that a I saving of from fifty to one hundred dollars per year per car could be innde if care were taken in the use of gaso line. Care of bearings, care of tires, and clean cylinders, will save the car wncr more than he knows. Those who know anything at all about a car will appreciate the fact that we waste a lot of fuel that does no good. We do not coast the hills, we let the motor run when the car is stand ing, we use the clutch too much, we have poor adjustments on the carbur eter, and burn gas Instead of nir. We do not get full measure from the gaso line seller, and we make long detours because distance is so little an element in motoring. Next to Largest Exhibit at Show One of the most beautiful displays at the big Toledo Auto Show will be that of the Cornelius Browning Auto Co. The exhibit will be a veritable blaze of color, the various models of their line being presented in especial ly attractive color combinations. The exhibit of this well-known Northwest ern Ohio concern will occupy just 1400 feet of floor space, and with the single exceplion of the Willys Over land will have the largest representa tion at the show. The Interstate, for which the Cor nelius Browning Co. are the distribu tors in Northwestern phlo, will be a most important Item. A new feature will be the Interstate Touring Sedan model, which will make Its initial bow at the Toledo show This car is the true Springfield type, convertible for use In summer or win ter. Special attention will be paid to the interior decorating, such as In direct lighting and Turklsh-dlvan up holstery. A divided front seat model another one of this years' newest designs will, also be exhibited, painted in a new Twyman grey tone and black fenders, radiator and dust skirts. Selected brown Spanish leather will be used In this car. A standard touring ear in newest color Is nlso worthy of particular at tention. The main feature of the Cole S dis play will be chassis so constructed that the main points of construction can be seen In motion. A seven pas senger Toursedan and a live- passen ger Tourscope will make their debut at the Toledo show, making the Cole 8 exhibit a center of attraction. The announcement that the Cornelius-Browning Co. have very recently acquired the Liberty line of motors is' of interest to ninny prospective auto mllo buyers. The chummy radiator and the touring car types of this line will bo featured. 11. C. Cornelius and II. B. Browning comprise this energetic concern. They are 'ver ywell known throughout the Northwestern Ohio territory. They truly believe In Hervice and a wltyti word of the company is that, every buyer must 'bo satlsllcd. The Toledo salesroom Is located at 817-810-821 Jefferson avenue. There will come a time, if it is not already here, when every man who earns $1200 a year in small places, and $1800 a year in larger towns, can afford and should have a car. It brings more lasting and beneficial pleasure than any other medium yet devised, as a pastime. It takes you out of doors. It gives you a chance to picnic with the family, see the country, save time, entertain as no other device ever can, and has Its proper place in the scheme of life. But a little study of cars and their care and operation, thought for the little savings that are possible, will make what would seem to be a burdensome tax a real and lasting benefit. Bert Williams, in one of his char acteristic scenes In the Winter Gar den, drives up to a wayside gas station In a battered motorcycle, and asks "fo "ten drops of gas" and carefully in quires of the dealer how far it will J:,ke him. "IOighty miles down hill." is the prompt reply. And that is tho whole secret of gas using to go down hill .vlthout it, for sometimes you can't get vp the hill with it. Have a car if you can afford it, and not because your neighbor has one; get all the pleasure out of It possible, but remember the little econ omies in oil, tires, gas, electrlslty and the like, and find that thrift has its place hero as well as in a big factory. Big Mileage Record The Briscoe car, for which Mr. George K. Wert, of Toledo, is the distributor in Northwestern Ohio, was developed in France, when gasoline was selling at 00 cents per gallon. Consequently the builders have made economy gasoline consumption a very important detail In this engine's con struction. A very recent record elaim lfy the Briscoe Co. is 40 miles to a gallon of gas. The time was made by a live passenger touring car with five occupants. The Hriscoe car Is distinguished In the automobile world as the largest stroke motor made, and tho company claims their product to be the most economical of touring cars. By W. C. Sills. The future Influence of the autoino bllo on our methods of life Is bard to forsce. But it Is certain that the In fluence will be tremendous. The motor car Is bringing the world together. It Is eliminating distance. It 13 bring ing the country nearer to the city, tho cust nearer to the west. It is helping the people of the different rarts of the land better to understand each other. Would you imagine that the nuto ralle would ultimately solve the prob lem of the high cost of living It will. Easy Now for Farmer The middleman came Into existence originally because the farm was so far from the city. With the gasoline propelled 'vehicle the farmer can now reach the city market In a few hours. His need for the commission merchant is not so great. The value of the food distributor is consequently lessening. Tho automobile will some day bring the farmer direct to the consumer, and also the consumer direct to the farmer. The standard of living on the farm is, of course, revolutionized, by the au tomobile. Not only has the automo bile brought about the possibility of city shopping for the family, but It also aids mechanically the operations of the farmer through the various ap pliances for pumping, threshing, etc. Conditions Are Improved. The coming of the city motorist in to the open country had led to good roads, better hotels, improved villages, and a beneficial influence on the thoughts and manners of the farm dwellers. You might be surprised if the village pastor told you that th popular priced automobile had greatly increased Sunday attendance on the part of the far dwelling parishioners It is hard to forsce the end, how ever, for no man can tell tho develop ments of tho automobile tomorrow. The progress of the motor Industry In tho last decade reads like a story from the Arabian Nights. Any man who dares to prophesy tho events of even the next Ato years is Indiscreet. Enormous Automobllo Output. Tho number of motor vehicles turned out In the United States In 1910 reached the immense total of 1,017,708. That was a gain of 80 per cent over 1015. The value of these cars was over million dollars. Four hundred new models are :hown, an Increase of one-third over nst year. Tell your Storage Battery Troubles to MILLER STORAGE BATTERY CO.
