The "Jackson" has proven Its worth under every condition and practical test. It has ful filled expectations in the past it will not disappoint in the future. From every point of view It is the best car that can be built for the money, and represents to the buyer more value for his outlay. The "Jackson" has always been a car of individual design, graceful lines, classy and luxurious. Built under competent personal Inspection, entirely In our own factory, Its reliability established by seven years of satisfactory service. - The 1910 "Jackson" retains all the distinctive features embodied in previous models, which have served to make and maintain Its prestige: Overhead Cam Shaft, Valves inclined at 45 de grees on opposite sides of cylinder heads. Self-contained Oiling System, Clutches all run in oil, Tbree-Speed Selective Transmissions with ball bearings for both Shafts. All cars are equipped with Splltdorf Magneto, Schebler Carburetor and Thermo-Syph6n water circulation. Greater reliability cannot be found in any car, even at a much higher price. FAR IN THE LEAD The facts of the great 300 mile automobile race on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway last August, are fam iliar history. In this race for the Wheeler & Schebler trophy, the most valuable prize ever offered in a similar contest, a "Jackson" stock chassis was' far in the lead when the race was stopped, at the completion of 235 miles. The "Jnckson" "showed the way" to many cars of greater rated po'wer and much higher price, and, dup ing the run made 100 miles in 96 minutes. But, we don't build "racers"; simply safe, reliable, economical and servicable cars. UNIT "POWER PLANT". "Jackson" Models "30," "40" and "50" are designed with Unit Power Plant. This meahs that the Motor, Fly Wheel and Transmission are all encased in one "housing." Keeps in the oil, keeps out the dirt. All "Jackson" Cars are hung on full Elliptic Springs, front and rear. Frame is dropped two Inches in the rear with a corresponding' drop In Ihe front axles. This allows for ample Spring Ac tion. The car is carried close to the ground, while the actual axle road clearance has been mater ially Increased. With full Elliptic Springs, front and rear, the "Jackson" covers rough roads at high speed, with less jolting and consequent strain on the chassis pleasant for the rider economical for the owner.

Pioneer Implerrienf Co., Council Bluffs, la., Distributers; KIND OF AUTO HE WANTED V Seeds of a Man Who Would Be a Kingpin at Home. 1 BEAL SP0BT WITH A MOTOR Dal Shows Hint On of Tbose Noiseless, Self-Startlns; Contrap tions and Customer Tells Wfcr It Wouldn't Do. Ha cam Into the salesroom with the air of a man who had the price and said: "I want to buy an automobile." "What grade of car have you In mind?" the sales manager asked. "Well, either black or red." he replied. "Of course you can have any fuusn of body or color you please," said the man ager. "Have xoo made up your mind as to power and cost?" "Oh, I'm not particular . about that, so long as the machine suits me." .' "Well, just step outside." said the man ager. "I've got something there that might Interest you. Now here," opening the hood. "la on of our regular six cylinder stock tars. What do you think of that motor?" "Does she do all right?" "Walt and see." I The sales manager took a look at the peed lever, saw that It was set at neutral and remarked: "She's been standing since morning, but I guess she's held her com ajreaaiun In some of the cylinders." . He touched a small lever and the motor began to bum. lie watched the machine with an expression of admiration and asked: -"How s that?" "No noise?" said the prospective buyer. "Not a bit," replied the sales manager, "except the click of the air valve, and you wouldn't hear that If the hood was closed. Absolutely silent muffler." ' "No blue smoke blowing out?" the man remarked. "Perfect mechanical lubrication," said the salesman; "all you have to do Is to keep oil In your lubricating tank." Then the salesman sounded the chime. "Bounds like the beginning of a hymn," observed the wouldbe buyer. "But what you want to know about," the salesman went on, "Is construction. Now, these cylinders are bored with abso lute accuracy, after being cast of the fin est gray, metal. The rings are machined to perfection, .the connecting rods I'll show you one Inside are of the toughest bronze, the boxings on the crank shaft are fastened with nuts, locknuts and cotter pins, the wrist pins are bushed with the best anti friction metal, every wearing part of steel Is case hardened and will wear like the Jewelled bearings of a chronometer, the carbureter la the latest nji-floodlng " - "Did you say you fuVnUh them painted either red or black?" the customer broke "Certainly, sir; but that Is, as you know, a minor -. On moment, excuse me." By the time the sales manager had re turned the possible . customer had made next. There were certain deficiencies. In his way of thinking. In the car that had been shown to him, but he wtuld Inquire the price painted either black or red. The salesman told him he would dem natrmt the car In the crowded streets of the city, on the country roads, at hill climbing and running through sand and named the price. "Now whaddye think of that proposition for a swell car?" said the sales manager. "Well, It seems to be all rlirht, all right," replied the man, "but It's Just this way: Down where I come from there are maybe a dozen automobiles now and the fellers that, own them are the kingpins of the place. I've the money now and I want to be In It with them I mean to be ahead of 'em." ' "When they're getting ready to start out the town knows there's something doing. Do I want an automobile that I'll fade away In noiselessly and never be missed unless I fall to come back before the week is out? "Let me tell you what they do. They call In the neighbors to help them back the machine out of the shed. When It Is straightened around they open the cover of the engine and monkey with all the contraptions inside. After they have done this for awhile they knock off and go to dinner. The crowd stays and watches for them to come back. s "Then they monkey with the lnsides of the' thing some more, shut up the cover, twist some things In the box of the wagon Dealers Have Many New Parts for Auto Shows Although Sealers Have 1910 Cars on the Markets, They Have Surprises. Although several manufacturers haye made announcements of their 1910 models as early as last spring and summer, it Is known that a number of them have "some thing up their sleeves" that they are de liberately holding back until show tim. When these announcements were made, the Impression gained considerable headway that few changes were to be found In. the majority of the cars, but a careful ex amination reveals a score of changes of one nature or another In nearly all of them. At the tenth National Automobile show to be held at Madison Sauare Gar den, January 8-15, the public will be given and go around In front of It. They get the be,t PPrtunl,y f 8eeln th ne hold of the crank and look over their shoulders to see If the way ahead Is clear. The women have all the young onea out of the road and crowd them back against the fences. "Then th erutomoblllst turns the crank, and turns It some more. He goes back and monkeys with something In the box and comes around In front and turns again. After turning the crank for a while he throws off his coat and uses his handkerchief, Then he gives her another whirl and she starts up, knocks - him over, breaks off a hitching post and stops. II picks himself up, says he forgot to set the speed control at neutral or neuter, or what ever It Is, and has her backed Into the road again. "After a lot more cranking 'she begins to play a sort of devil's tattoo on the atmosphere. She makes a noise Ilk tear ing off clapboards and winds up with an explosion that sets the babies squalling and the dogs howling. Then she drops Into a sort of double shuffle round, and after he has twisted some more things in the wagon box he settles down to about the noise you hear In a boiler factory. """'Then he gets In, squeezes out of the rubber ball a squawk that makes the frightened young ones tip over backward, and he's off. A streak of blue smoke from the tail of the machine makes every body sneeze, and as they watch him dis appear In a cloud of dust and smoke they can hear the squawking of the chickens as they fly over the fences. "That's what I call automoblllng. With this contraption jou have shown me I wouldn't be in It. I would slide out of view without being noticed, as if I had crawled under the back yard fence and sneaked sway."" , "What I want la a regular automobile. you understand? iou may have some thing later 'that would suit me and per- hupe I'll cal around." models oC the old and standard makes of cars of the members of the Association of Licensed Automobile Manufacturers, under whose auspices the automobile show In the garden Is held annually. The latest models will be displayed side by side and the public can compare their various points, see their differences and similarities and. in general, "size up" what the makers have to offer and note the, general ten dencies In moior car design. Although th general public hear com paratively little of the commercial vehicle branch of the automobllo Industry, the de velopment of motor trucks and business wagons has been going on steadily and In terest in truck and wagon construction Is greater than ever before. When one con siders the business men and farmers who are concerned about the motor truck, it ould seem that the Interest In them must ultimately be even more extensive than in the pleasure cars. A careful study of the motor trucks now being placed on the market reveal more marked Improvements and fewer freakish features. A complete line of commercial vehicles will be found in th basenfent at the garden show, and this exhibition of the business wagon will be well worth the attention of every one. The motorcycle section of the garden show also will b a big show in Itself and a comprehensive one. A goodly proportion of th public has been convinced that the motorcycle la a safe, speedy and economi cal method of transportation, and this dis play undoubtedly will excite keen Interest.

Sold by Beaton Drug Co, Might Provo mtt Oatlet. A young girl of fourteen was taking a trip on Lake Michigan In a small steamer. The lake was somewhat rough and many were seasick. Th girl sat In th bow and was unusually quiet for her. "Are you feeling aick. daughter?" Inquired her fath er. "No, I don't think I am sick; but I should hat to yaw " There is actually more value in the Ford Model "T" than in any other car at several hundred dollars more money. Think It Over Here's the Model "T" Ford 1 four-cylinder, twenty-horse-power, five passenger, comfortable, durable, practical touring car, complete with all the equipment, that costs from $150 to $300 additional in most other cars and all this for, not $3,000 or $2,000 or one and a half thousand, at any of which a man would get his money's worth, but for $1,000 f. o. b. Council Bluffs complete. No extras. A $5000 Car will take you to your office in the morning or to the theater or social function in the evening. It will carry you from one business engagement to another during the day and at night or when the cares of business are laid aside, you call upon the car to provide pleasure for the family. But this Ford car will do all this just as satisfactorily as any high priced car and more so than some. To Avoid Arguments let's agree that some of the trimmings found on the high priced propositions are left off the Ford. They are. But the difference in price will pay for a pile of trimmings, and the trimmings don't make one whit better automobile. It isn't fuss and feathers that is needed to make the car you buy satisfactory; it's just plain auto mobile, and if you get that for $1,000 and no more of it for double, why pay the extra? The Model "T" Ford includes a magneto that's essential to the satisfactory operation of a car, so it's built in and a part of the engine, not an added accessory at a hundred or so more dollars. It has a long, comfortable wheel base, it is not a dinky runabout with tonneau crowded on behind. It's a four-cylinder car, is shaft driven,, employs unit construction and three point suspension, and is made of Vanadium steel. All in all it would be a whopping big value atUouble the price. Then Look at What Equipment is included. Experience has, taught us that most buyers want a toji with other cars that's an extra, they want a windshield, that's extra; a speed ometer is a satisfaction, and that's extra; they want a stronger light, and gas lamps are extra; and by the time they have bought all these things, the price, which is already higher than the Ford, has been jumped another hundred or eo plus the magneto. There is nothing extra to buy for a Ford; these things are all included. After All, the Final Test of Value is what it will do. This is the proof of Ford value. It will go anywhere over any kind of road, or lack of a road, more days or more years than the average car at a considerably higher price. It has good appearance, speed and power, as well as hill climbing ability and good and bad roads negotiability. Repair bills are 6mall and maintainance costs light. It is easily handled, easily kept up and always ready. It's a practical, every day car for the man who wants a car. High Priced Cars Render a peculiar service, for which Ihey must be given credit. They pull a lot of money out of the safety vaults and put it into circulation. That's good. But there are a lot 'of us so fixed that most of our cash already finds plenty of channels by which it returns to circulation. The Ford Model "T" costs little to buy and little to maintain. The man on an average income can afford the purchase price and the up-keep cost. The New York-Seattle Race was won by a Model "T" Fcrd against a field of .competition, none of which sold for less than five times the Ford price. This winning car has traveled back overland, thus finishing a double transconti nental. This car weighed less than oe-fifth the weight of its lightest competitor, a fact, by the way, largely respon sible for its winning as it is also responsible for the low cost of maintainance for which a Ford car is noted. we nave just receivea a unipmeui oi 40 iviu rora touring cars ice second snipment 01 46 machines in me past 0 weeks.
