"In It. Class, the Best Car in the
After experimenting for two
years with electric starters, the
Hiup Motor Car Co., of Detroit,
Mich., announces that on and
after Sept. 1st their "Hup 32"
will be electrically started and
lighted, and will be optional with
the buyer. In other words, the
Hup 32 can be bought with or
without the starter and electric
Carrying out their policy of a
simplicity and accessibility, the
starting device adopted by the
Hupmobile factory, will be the
most simple, yet efficient, ever
put on any car, and will carry the
same guarantee as the Hups and
will help make the Hup 32 in its
class, the best car in the world.
On crippled rims, with but a
bare minute to spare, the second
Hupmobile 32 entered in the 1913
Glidden Tour, dashed under the
massive redwood arch that framed
the picturesque finish of the tour.
Twelve minutes before, the other

down to 10 miles per hour. Then
it was that the Hupmobile made a
showing that stood as a record for

those of the hups. boiled from
two to four times, but the Hup
radiators never took on water
anywhere during the trip out of
Hupmobile enthusiasm was man
ifested all along the route of the

Hold Your Corn!
Don't sell the corn too cheap.
Corn is in great demand.
Hold it for better prices.
Take advantage of an opportunity.
Vermilion has a very large crop this year, and there are
numerous people trying to buy it for $1 a barrel, and less if
they can. The are also many inquiries being received re
garding Vermilion parish corn.
It is estimated that there will be a surplus of about 140,000
barrels in this parish. If this corn was sold for $1 a barrel
it would bring $140,000 in the parish.
There is a good chance for us to hold it and get %1.25 and
upwards per barrel for it. Corn crops are short elsewhere and
makes our corn in great demand.
Sell it for $1.25 a barrel and thus make it bring an extra
$35,000 to this parish. Hold it for that price and you will
get it. At $1.25 a berrel it would bring $175,000 instead
of $140,000 at a $1 a barrel.
You Mr. Merchant should use your efforts, insist and see
that we get a good price for our corn. Sho v your manhood,
show your interest in your home parish. ~ can get a good
price for our corn, and we should not for ode minute sacrifice
any of it
There are several corn shelling outfits that are trying to
get our corn too cheap. We are robbing ourselves by sacrific
ing it. Hold to it and demand a guod price. We look to the
merchants to bring the extra money to our parish, and
$35,000 extra is a neat little sumn.
