Fine, rich meadows, level as the palm of your hand I Wherever there was a ravine, the variety of vegetation was still greater, and the grass stood as as your chest. The Elder took off his fur cap and placed.it on' the lop ol the hillock. "Here is the said. "Put your money on it, Yonr man will slay here; start from here and return: all you encircle ig yours.'

We would like to distribute theae small weaned sows, approxi- mately sty. to eight weeks old, from about Jlay to June 15th and would, therefore, lllto lo hear from any or all of the swine breeders ot Ihe Province with .regard lo such pigs that juay be for sale. The. breeds asked for by the cluba that have heen visited so fai are aa follows: '.Berkshire, Duroc, Jersey, Yorkshire, Poland, China and Hamp- shire.

You read the advertisements, so you know that makers, as a rule, are not over modest in that regard. s If you believe them all, they al! make super-cars. In your experience, that theory doesn't hold. f v Maxwell is different. We never claim anything.we cannot prove) v j i As a matter "of fact we never have claimed anything for this Maxwell fhat has not already be.en pro.ved in public test and under official observation. Maxwell not therefore claims in the ordinary are .state- ments of facts. They are, in every case, matters of official record attested under oath. For example: The famous Non-Stop run was made.with the Maxwell every minute under observation of the A. A. A. officials. That still remains_a world's world's record of reliability. That particular test proved about all that anyone could ask or desire of a motor car. i Among other things it still stands the world's long distance speed record. Just days and nights without a stop, at an average speed, of ,25 miles per-hour! And that, not by a car, by a stock model Maxwell listing at You will recall perhaps that a famous high-powered, high-priced six in a trans- continental trip made 28 miles average over a'period of five days and eleven hours. New compare those of less than six days, the other of You know was the greater, test? t Is there any comparison on grounds either of speed or endurance? Proves you don't need to pay more than to obtain all the qualities youX ,can desire in a motor you select a Maxwell.' i For that Maxwell Non-Stop run .was made, no.t on a track but over rough country roads and thr6ugh city of all kinds, of going.; to this. v, So certain were we of the condition.of the Maxwell at the end of 'hat great feat, we announced that a_t 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, was started again and off on a thousand mile jaunt to visit various Maxwell dealers; How is that for of action? That incident brought a storm 1 of applause from the assembled thousands; Hill Maxwell holdj practically every record worth especially in the West where the real hills are. .The Mount Wilson and one-half miles, feet taken by a stock Maxwell. Two months ago a 12-cylinder car beat that record by two minutes. days stock Maxwell Went out and beat that 12-cylinder record by thirty seconds! Pretty close going for such a distance and such a it? So -Maxwell still holds the Mount Ready to defend it against all comers top, at any stock Maxwell against, any stock or special chassis. ,a matter of official record. Others may proves. Thousands of Maxwell owners throughout the country on the same day averaged 35.2 miles per gallon of gasoline. v Not dealers or factory experts, mind you, but of driving their own Maxwells. Nor were they new contest was made by and 17 models, many of which tens of thousands miles of years'use. Nor could they choose their own road or weather kinds were encountered in the various sections o.f the country. Good roads and country anji mountainous and sunshine and mud. And the average was 35.2 miles per gallon! There's economy for you. And under actual average driving laboratory test. But that isn't all. The greatest achievement of this Maxwell wets'in its showing of speed and reliav bility and economy all in the same run. In that daya-and-nights Non-Stop 'run, though noJthought vyas given to either speed or .economy, it still remains a fact of oifficialiecord that the Maxwell averaged 26.4 miles per gallon and 25 tniles per hour. Now you know that speed that economy tests are usually, made at thin-mixture conditions; You know too that you can obtain economyof fuel by building adjusting for that one condition; you can get by building for speed. Any engineer call do that. But to obtain that combination.of speed arid economy with the wonderful reliability shown in that 44-days' Non-Stop car must be a Maxwell.
