PAGE TEN THE LETHBR1DGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, FEBRUARY;,!?,, 191', THE NEW ELGIN SIX THE CAR OF THE HOUR Master Cap Builders-men whose names have become watchwords for mechanical excellence and factory efficiency, from knowledge gained by experience as old as the industry itself, have produced this "Car of the Hour"-the New Elgin Six. These men, who with other well known companies have produced some of the world's greatest cars have in the designing and building of this Capable Six, far excelled their previous efforts. We are. proud of the product of their mechanical genius and experience, and confidently chaltenge comparison of the Elgin Six in stamina, appearance, in smooth running and easy riding qualities and comfort, with any car from any country at any price. Experienced motorists recognize at a glance that the Elgin Six is not a "cheap Six" but a thoroughly high grade car, handsome In design, splendid in performance, and equal in every respect to cars selling for two to four hundred,dollars more money. One of the most prominent of the several outstanding features of the New Elgin Six is its easy riding qualities. With few equals in this respect, it is not excelled in luxurious comfort by any ear on the market, regardless of price. The Elgin Six improved cantilever 'rear spring suspension, the result of exhaustive tests and experiments on the part of Elgin engineers, has set a new standard of motoring ease and comfort at high speeds. This feature, one of the most important Improvements of the past year in motor car construction, is - found only in the New Elgin Six.' The long wheelbase and the perfect balance '^of the low swung body have likewise been carefully designed to secure the utmost in motor comfort for Elgin owners. Combined with over-size tires which are standard equip-' ment on the New Elgin Six, these features en-, able the Elgin to iron the wrinkles out of the' road to such an extent that you can drive i -the New Elgin 'Six at 35 to 50 miles per hour with perfect comfort, over roads so rough that" the ordinary car dare not exceed 15 to 20 miles per hour. > The New Elgin Six contains the same won-, , derful 35 horse-power High Speed Valve-in- ' Head Motor that proved such .ah 'Important factor in winning for this Capable Six perfect scores and highest economy honors in every contest it has entered. Clean simplicity, together with long yacht-like lines expressive of speed and style, are the outstanding features of the new Elgin Six. The high quality of material and expert workmanship entering into the Elgin Six, is distinctive from the general mass of cars hurriedly thrown together in�wholesale fashion to meet the competition of volume sales. The exquisite taste and harmonious proportions of the Elgin Six radiates an atmosphere of marked refinement, so desired by those wishing a car aloof from the monotonous design of the ordinary types which tare so void of originality. The windshield expresses smartness in the slight angle at which it ts tilted. The upholstery is a black, long grain, bright leather finish, well inlaid in French plaits, and of choice quality. The-interior is noticeably roomy and loungy. i '. '.- The perfectly proportioned body, with 116 inches of-wheelbase, presents a beautiful and graceful effect which sets it apart as a car of character and distinction. A Mechaiiittal Masterpiece The especial-construction of the'Elgin velvet-acting clutch enables the Elgin Six to be started on high gear, under ordinary conditions, eliminating to a large degree the necessity of gear shifting, thus removing the least barrier to the safe and easy handling of a motor car by wjimeir. The Elgin chassis, from radiator to rear axle, represents an assembly of mechanical units that have endured the test of-time. Not an ounce of steel Is used in the chassis of the New Elgin Six until it has-been approved as up to the exacting standards of-our-Engineering Department. While the New Elgin Six is a big, powerful car, it is an economical car to operate. The Elgin Six has repeatedly demonstrated in reliability and economy runs during the past year, that it will average from 20 to 25 miles to the gallon of gasoline, and better than 200 miles to the quart of lubricating oil, while its .low weight results in keeping tire wear down to a minimum. The New Elgin Six is the last and finest' product of Veteran Engineers and Master'Car Builders whose leadership and national reputations have been established 'by their ability to build a motor car embodying, in the highest degree, the four dominant features of the Elgin Six-> DISTINCTION : ENDURANCE : ECONOMY : COMFORT Sales Room. 305 6th Street S.

The master spy and author of such ; hooks as "The Secrets ot the German war office," violently denounced Count von Bernstorff, asserting that tno charges against--=himself were i trumped up, and that he knew where-I of he spoke when he asserted some I weeks ago, that he would never have ' a court hearing set for next month,' | for the reason that by then neither Count nor Countess von Bernstorff would be in this country. * "I am determined to havo vindication in the eyes of the Americana people," he exclaimed excitedly as he paced. about in his home at 65 West 69th St, New York. "My lawyer, John J. Halligan, will bring suit, against Count von Bernstorff on Monday for $200,000 for malicious prosecution, and we shall attach his proper-'! ty.
