It is not generally known that
the State of Tenueseee has passed
& law tb at gives special care, main
tenance, and education to the blind
from the day they are blinded.
This law empowers the State
Board of Education to provide for
the suitable -eare, maintenance
and i Detraction o blind children
of school age, who are -not eligible
to the Tennessee School for the
Blind for lack of training., and who
need special kindergarten training
to prepare thexi for admission in
said school for the blind, residing
in this State, who may be born
blind, or become blind, in any ewe
where by lack of means the parent
or parents of such children are un
able to properly care for, maintain
and-edHcate such children."
It is at last fully realised that a
child blinded in infancy is not like
ly to live to what has been consid
ered the school age, eight years,?
withowt, becoming crippled both
taentally and physically because of
lack of special care that should be
given in the first years of the child's
life. Most of the babies die before
they reach the age of eight years,
acd those who manage to exist,
meet with a worse fate by becom
Therefore, mothers, take note of
this new step in education Tennes
see has made.aad report your blind
babies to Mrs. Cynthia Westover
Alden, president general of the
International Sunshine Society
and founder of the home 96 Fifth
Avenue, New York City. This so
ciety has succeeded in getting this
bill made a law.
You will receive prompt atten
tion and booklets aud reports on
the care of the baby blind will be
sent free to those who wish them.

You can own an exact duplicate of "Wild Bill" Turner's
or Billy Carlson's record-breaking Maxwells
Think of owning one of these same Max
wells ! Think of driving it wherever you want
to, over any kind of roads up any kind of
hills wherever four wheels can go ! The same
car for $695.
Remember every 1915 Maxwell is an exact
duplicate of the regular stock Maxwell Tour
ing Car, in which "Wild Bill" Turner and
Buly Carlson broke the world's records up Mt.
Hamilton and Mt Wilson.
That is the kind of a hill-climber you get
when you get a Maxwell.
Now consider these Maxwell Racing Car
Barney Oldfield, in a Maxwell Racing Car,
won the Venice Grand Prix Race, making a
Billy Carlson, in another Maxwell Racing Car,
finished second, a few seconds behind Oldfield.
A short time previous, Oldfield. won the
Corona Race, 300 miles at 36 3-10 miles per
hour, without a single stop.
Carlson won the San Diego, 300 miles
without a stop.
These Maxwell Racing Cars were built by
the same designers the same chief engineer
that build the regular Maxwell Cars, and the
same Maxwell Laboratory-tested, heat-treated
steel was used in them that is used in the
regular .stock Maxwell Touring Car.
