You ask what haa become of the hitch
inK post, the carriage stepping stone In
front of the big white tapn house, the
livery stable and the blacksmith shop.
They've gone the way of the "good old
days," tho spinning wheel, the andirons
and the bootjack.
The motor, car has relegated them to
tho day of fond memory. Pays wo some
times like to recall, but days we could
never think of going back to. In place
of the hltchliCc post a,nd tho carriage
stepping . stone, has come the gasoline
filling station. Jn place of the livery
stablo has come tho modern garago,
and the oldjfashlo'ned roadside smithy
has been urned Into a' modern automo
bile rrnalr shop.
The motor car has brought many
changes, but tvIUi the changes, has come
prosperity. "The foundry that once turned
out ornamental hitching posts with a
borso's head, or a little Iron negro Jockey
patiently waiting to hold old Dobbin's
reins, Is manufacturing automobile parts.
Where one moulder waa employed mak
ing hitching posts a hundred are now
moulding crank cases and rear axle
housings. Tho pattern maker, who onca
designed Iron hitching post Jockeys with
formt that would shame' Venus de Mllo,
Is now making differentials, transmission
Bean or crank shafts. The liveryman
who sold his old broken down nags and
started a garage la making more money
than he ever dreamed was In the livery
business. He Is making more money and
making It easier, because he Is giving
more and better service for the money.
The blacksmith who waa wise enough
to turn his smithy Into an up-to-date re
pair shop also haa been struck by the
tidal wave of prosperity. He has be
come a motor car expert and can repair
anything from the little runabout to the
big six-cylinder limousine.
Tho hitch rack around the country
court house Is no longer crowded with
wagons and carriages on Batureay. It's
lined two deep with automobiles. The
farmer, who formerly loaded the family
and all the hands Into the wagon on
Saturday and spent the whole day In
town doing a little trading, now drive
to town In his automobile, does his shop.

Ping and Is back on the Job In two hours.
He haa learned the value of the con
servation of time the same as tho busy
business man In the' big city.
Big Time Saver.
The automobile- is tho biggest time
saver that has ever been adopted by tho
American farmer. When some small part
of an Implement breaks during the busy
season tho automobile Is hurried off to
town for a new part and In less than an
hour the machine Is running again. In
the days before the automobile the
farmer was fortunate If he Could get
Uhe new part from town In a day.
xne saaouni motor naa piayea iui part
In making tho automobile the popular
method of transportation, but without the
pneumatlo tire the motor car would be
limited to Improved city streets and boule
vards. The fafct that the motor car Is equipped
with pneumatlo tires and ca"h be suc
cessfully operated over most any roads
traveled by horso drawn vehicles. Is one
thing that has made It' popular and
brought about ftn wonderfully rapid de
velopment. When tho first pneumatlo automobile
tire was made sixteen yoars ago In the
factory of the Diamond Rubber company
at Akron, O,, tho foundation was laid for
the automobile Industry. That tire made
posslblo the development of tho auto
mobile Industry as It Is today. That first
tire did something else, it started tlre
makors on a scientific search Into the
real facts of the tiro building.
In the early days of the tire Industry
little wns known about building tires by
scientific methods. Tires In those days
were uncertain things so far as mileage
was concerned. Since then tire manufac
turers have made cautious, but certain
Improvements .from year to year, until'
today the automobile, tire has reuched a
state of perfection where the motorist
haa a definite Idea of the mileage he may
reasonably expect from a tire.

shals for the affair, say that they have
never been and never expect to be so
fortunate as they were Tuesday. Even
the extreme heat did not effect the tires
or the engines.

grade of hill, the owners are Jubilant

A Car of Character
Beauty that is Rare
N the Cross Country the public finds an expression of your own
good taste. There is in this car a certain something which gives
it character beyond outward grace.
To the eye it presents a pleasing picture of straight flowing lines and ,
graceful curves. Rarely does it pass without remark. Long, low and
balanced perfectly, its silent dignity of movement, so much admired;
on the boulevard, may be attributed to those same qualities which make
possible its. sturdy performance on the road.
Like a fine horse, it inspires the owner's pride and gives him rank in his
neighborhood as a man whose taste is to be admired.
The radiator is high and distinctive in design. The large electric front
and flush electric dash lamps make it a car easily distinguished among
many. Trimmed in nickel, with body, fenders and fillers of . black
enamel its appearance is striking.
The fenders are broad, strongand sturdy.
The doors are wide and the compart
ments large enough to accommodate the
family.- Long and low, hung, you Can
whip this car around the corner in a jiffy;
and the rear wheels hug the road.
It's a car to delight a woman's eye. To her rare good taste will appeal
its perfect proportions and its superb finish. To this we may attribute
tile greatest pleasure in its ownership.
A beautiful four-color reproduction of the Cross Country., from an oil painting by
R. Philip Brainard, is ready for mailing. See the Cross Country by all means,
at anyjeffery branch or dealer's display room, but. send for the picture anyway.
