The 1913 Ford model T Is now being shown on the floor of the local branoh and Is creating considerable comment. With the decrease In price tho Ford product has apparently Increased In quality, several new Ideas being brought out this year, chief among which Is tho new body, which Is rounded in the rear, a style bolng adopted by many high priced cars of the country. Tho Jones speedometer, considered to be one of tho foremost In Its line, la being used this year, and an Increased equipment con sisting of top hood and Jack form tho principal Improvements. The rounded body gives the Ford an exceptionally classy appearance and this fact alone should, make the 1913 product a much better seller than tho car of previous years.

"With the new lamps, the dazzling headlights of the automobile aro of little use, and for my part I thlhk they are "dangerous and should bo turned off by drivers, when using these streets. With four or five pa'r of such lights shining In a pedestrian's eyes while crossing the stroot ho is apt to become confused and walk Into danger.
