The Nash Truck
The satisfactory performance of the Nash rear driven trucks
in daily service and their unusually low cost to operate is due, in
no small measure, to the fact that they are equipped with the M.
& S. type of autoatic locking differential. This enables this truck
to pull out of bad holes where any ordinary truck would be hope
lessly stuck. Come in and examine this feature.
These trucks have four speeds, electric lights, all modern im
proved equipment and have given perfect satisfaction wherever
used.
Trucks Will Be in Demand
The hundreds of miles of new hard surfaced roads to be built
in Latah county this year means increased demands for trucks to
haul the big wheat crop, worth $2 per bushel, that everyone ex
pects this year. Come in now and order your truck for fall de
livery and be sure to get it when you need it.

Where Quality Counts'
C. E. BOLLES, Proprietor
Washington's birthday, five Seattle
ites, tucked away under robes and
sweaters and carrying ropes and cam
eras. borne by a 1919 model, five
passenger, valve-in-head Buick were
whisked as if by magic to Mount
Rainier and back again to the city.
From 7 a. m. to 7 p. m., twelve
swift, consecutive hours, they "came,
saw and conquered," incidentally cov
ering 214 miles, under all sorts of
weather conditions, over all sorts of
roads. George Purdy, district man
ager of the Eldridge Buick company
and record breaker of past Mara
thons, was at the wheel. Under his
stern vigilence the car responded as
smoothly and as simply as a third
hand might have done, each unit of
the car co-ordinating like fingers
should. It almost talked in terms
of transportation and never once,
through slush, mud, gravel, snow and
serpentine ruts, did it balk.
It would be interesting to peer back
with seeing eyes 146 years ago to
George Washington's time and read
the chronicles of trips taken by the
Puget sound Indians to the grand old
"Mountain That Was God," which
we are honoring today in our civil
ized fashion, assisted by motor cars,
paved boulevards and spacious hos
pitable inns by the wayside. How
was this same trip staged 146 years
ago?

Millions of dollars are wasted an
nually through the injudicious choice
of trucks, according to Mr. A. S.
Frost of the Idaho Garage, local Olds
mobile dealer.
"By that I mean," said Mr. Frost,
"that the business
"that the average business man does
not make a close enough study of the
actual hauling conditions that exist
in his business before deciding on
what type of truck to buy—he does
not really analyze his own problems.
As a result, as often as not he se
cures a truck of the wrong capacity,
and that spells waste.

the literal truth. You will notice par
ticularly that a very large percent
age of the heavy duty trucks are load
ed to far less than their rated capac
ity; often the load will be less than
a quarter of what the truck is cap
able of hauling. The reason for this
is \ery often indicated by the nature
of the load. It is apparent that the
owner does sometimes have occasion
to haul capacity loads. And it is
equally apparent that in buying the
truckj he had in mind chiefly these
occasional instances rather than the
day-in and day-out service the truck
would be called upon to deliver. I
"Now suppose he had chosen a
truck of far smaller capacity. His
average load would cost far less to
haul. The amount invested would be
less; fuel and oil costs would be cut
practically in two; maintenance costs
would be very much reduced. Besides
the lighter truck will make a great
deal better time, especially if it is
mounted on pneumatic tires. Hence,
it will have plenty of time to split
the occasional big job in two or even
three hauls without inconvenience to
anyone.
"Our experience with the Oldsmo
bile Economy Truck, which has
rated capacity of 1600 to 2000 pounds,
is demonstrating every day that the
speedy, staunch truck of relatively
small capacity is the logical, econ
omical solution of the average haul
ing problem. But business houses
who pfJt their haulage on a purely
mathematical basis have learned this
lesson and it will not be long before
it is a generally recognized fact.

Road Meeting at Leland.
At the regular monthly meeting of
the Potlatch Highway Commissioners
held at Leland last Saturday after
noon, it was decided to hold a mass
meeting of the residents of the High
way District at Leland, Monday,
March 10. The meeting is to be held
for the purpose of determining
whether to vote bonds at this time and
also to get the general sentiment of
the people most interested as to what
plans should be made for the better
ment of the roads lying within the
boundaries of the district.
The commissioners feel that the
majority of the taxpayers within the
district should have a voice in out
lining the road work of the district.

UTILITY, as expressed in the BUICK Valve
in-Head car for 1919, is a composite thing, made up
of those elements which may be considered vital
factors in the serviceability of a motor car.
This utility has been arrived at through the
perience of nearly twenty years, during which time
the Buick course has been characterized by
ering fidelity to accepted engineering ideals, and
constructive advancement has been made by the
process of improvement and elimination.

Saturday when the people of that
