To the Alberta Iteglstered Swine X Breeders:- ' The undersigned is endeavoring to organize for the Department of Agriculture a number of pig clubs for boys and girls throughout the Province. Already a large number of places have asked for these clubs, but we- are finding great difficulty in securing a sufficient^ number of small, weaned sows to meet the demand. We would like to distribute these small weaned iowg, approximately slif to eight weeks old, from about May 20th to June 15th and would, therefore, like to hear from any or all of the swine breeders of the Province �\vlth regard to such pigs that jnay be for sale. The. breeds asked for by tho clubs that have been visited so far are as follows: \ Berkshire, Ditroc, Jersey, Yorkshire, Poland, China and Hampshire. AVe might add that what we want is registered stock, or stock that Is eligible for reglsiration and such stock as will eventually make first class brood Howa. At present wo can secure all the grade pigs that the clubs are calling for. Will those who have weaned sows that will be ready for delivery between .May 20th and June luth kindly communicate with the undersigned at onco, staling exact date of birth of pigs, together with price .K. O.B. Ehipping point. In all cases crates must be supplied by the shipper. , On account of the difficulty tin securing a sutfjclent number of pigs we cannot organize this year- any mo)-e pig clubs than tliose that have already applied for organization, and ev?n In the case of these It may bo impossible- to meet all the demands. However, we are doing our utmost In this direction, if this same work Is carried out next year then the points that' deslro organization and thai csn bo properly cured for will receive attention at the pifoper llnio.

We never claim anything, we cannot proved As a matter of fact we never have claimed ^nything for this Maxwell fhat has not already b^en proved in public test and under official observation. Maxwell claims are not therefore claims in the ordinary sense-they are state-^ ments of fact-proven facts. . They are, in every case, matters of official record attested under oath. For example: The famous 22,000-mile Non-Stop run was made .with the Maxwell every minute under observation of the A. A. A. officials. That still remains^ a world's record-the world's record of reliability. That particular test proved about all that anyone could ask or desire of a motor car. Among other things it still stands the world's long distance speed record. Just consider-44 days and nights without a stop, at an average speed of .25 miles per-hour! ^ . ^ And that, not by a $3,000 car, bat by a stock model Maxwell listing at $1045. Ysu will recall perhaps that a famous high powered, high-priced six in a transcontinental trip made 28 miles average over a period of five days and eleven hours. Now compare those two feats-one of less than six days, the other of 44 days.' . - You know automobiles-which was the greater test? Is there any comparison on grounds either of speed or endurance? Proves you don't'^need to pay more than $1045 to obtain all the qualities you/' -can desire in a motor car-if you select a Maxwell.' ^ . For that Maxwell Non-Stop run was made, not on a track but over rough country roads and thrbugh city traffic-average of all kinds of going. And-listen to this. . So certain were we of the condition of the Maxwell at the end of that great feat, we announced that at the stroke of eleven on a certain morning, the car would stop in front of the City Hall, for the Mayor to break the seal. ^- Five seconds after he had pulled the switch plug and stopped the motor after the 44 days and nights continuous running, she was started again and off on a thousand mile jaunt to visit various Maxwell dealers. Hov/ is that for precision-certainty of action? That incident brought a storm . of applause from the assembled thousands. Hill climbing?-this Maxwell hold'3 practically every record worth mentioning- . especially in the West where the real hills are. The Mount Wilson record-nine and one-half miles, 6,000 feet elevation!-wai taken by a stock Maxwell. ' ' '; Two months ago a 12-cylinder car beat that record by two minutes. , , Then-three days later-a stock Maxwell Went out and beat that 12-cylindef record by thirty seconds! Pretty close going for such a distance and such a climb-wasn't it? So Maxwell still holds the Mount Wilson honors. . - Ready to defend it against all comers top, at any time-a stock Maxwell against any stock or special chassis. ' . � . Econorny-also a matter of official record. Others may claim-Maxwell proves. / Thousands of Maxwell owners throughout the country on the same day' averaged 35.2 miles per gallon of gdsoline, . ^ \ Not dealers or factory experts, mind you, but ov/ners--thousands of tliem- . driving their own Maxwells. - ' ' Nor were they new Maxwells-the contest was made by 1915, lf5, and 17 models, many of which had vseen tens of thousands miles of service-three years' use. Nor could they choose their own roa:d or weather conditions-all kinds were encountered in the v^ipus sections of the country. Good roads and bad-l^vel country and mountainous regions-heat|' and cold-sunshine and,rain-asphalt and mtid. And the average was 35.2 miles per gallon!  There's economy for you. And under actual average driving conditions-not ' laboratory test. But that isn't all. The greatest achievement of this Maxwell was'in its shov/ing of speed and reliav bility and economy all in the same run. In that 44 daya-and-riights Non-Stop run, though npnthought was given to either speed or economy, it still remains a fact of official iecord that t^e Maxwell averaged 26.4 miles per gallon and 25 miles per hour. Now you know that speed costs-rand that economy tests are usuially-made at ^slow-speed-closed-throttle, thin-mixture conditions. : , - You know too that you can obtain economy of fuel by building alhd adjusting for that one cpndition; " / ' Spee'd you can get by btiilding for speed. Any engineer can do that. , ' But to obtain that combination,of speed and economy with the wonderful , reliability shown in that 44-days Non-Stop run-that car must be a Maxwell. , 'i � 1  � " 0 : �j' - 27 ;
