k Roomy Sedan of Sturdy Strength
6 Cylinders 50
The price of the Jewett Sedan is so astonishingly low that unlets one
has personal knowledge of the character and quality of this ear of
amazing value, a false classification is not an unnatural impression.
The Jewett is not a "light six" Sedan. It is a roomy, powerful, five'
passenger enclosed car of distinction. It 8 powered with six cylinder,
3i x 5 inch motor installed in a husky chassis in which every unit is
built for excess strength. .--
Here is a Sedan' that can be matched only by enclosed cars selling for
at least $500 more than the Jewett. This is a statement certainly
worth investigating. You can prove its validity by a demonstration ,
which will be arranged to suit your convenience. . ,

One building in the village can
lay claim to national fame, it is
the Danish Lutheran church. It
houses the oldest congregation of
Danish Evangelical Lutherans in
America who organised- here in
October, 1S69.
The fouding and succeeding
prosperity of the littlevjllage was
due largely to the industry of the
Sheffield Mining & Transportation
Co., under the management of such
men as Alexander Ruthven, Henry
C. Porter and A. W. Boyden, Sr.
The capacity-of the mine was 100
tons per day and "the company
supplied the railroad with coal for
half a century. With the abandon
ing of the mine in 1902, local coal
mines were opened and the Shef
field Tile Works grew on the old
site of the mining company shaft

Seventy years no not such a long

with its beautiful churches, fine
schools and comfortable homes,
substantial business, places, well

sidewalks bespeaks 70 years of
progress. Her heroes have fought

typical American small town and
its residents say it is a mighty nice
