A recent writer on automobiles says
that the time is near at hand when a
runabout that will give four or five
times the service of a good horse and
buggy can be bought for $300. Even
now in some places a special type of
autos built for the purpose are used
by merchants for delivery. But the
smart set needn't' feel resentful, for
there are great possibilities in the areo
plane and when they go sailing
through the clouds they can look down
with more satisfaction than ever on
us poor folks who have to work.
