to Expert the Machine.
Yesterday morning T. A. Brady of
Chicago, an expert automobilest, run one
of the finest machines ever brought to
the northwest from the platform of the
Northern Pacific depot. The ease and
grace with which the machine moved
could not fail to engender in the hearts
of the spectators a pride in Ameriaan
skill and workmanship. This auto was
purchased by Captain Gordon for the
purpose of making regular trips from
East Main street to Clarkston and Nor

hour. At the same time it can be stopped
when under this high speed within its
own length. It is provided with four
wide seals which can lie r.ached with
ease upon wide steps. The entire rig is
covered with a beautifu awning top.

The horses of the town looked around
iu wonderment as they passed quickly
along but noue became frightened and
no accidents are rocorded. The steam

present to scare the animals. The en
gine makes a noise very like an electric
street car with the absence of the harsh
wheel grinding. During the day a num
ber of jieople took advantage of free ride
given by the affable owner. In theeveu
ing Mr. Kjos gave the first automobile
partv of the season.
