' Price 7 Passenger Phaeton, $2500, Lethbridge Consider the many ways Saxon 'Six' excels It Is not In one way alone that Saxon "Six" surpasses other cars. In every phase of performance you'll find it matchless. In pulling power on hills and through heavy going, In high-gear work, and in acceleration It duplicates the ability of costly cars. By constant betterment the power-flow has been made smoother and more supple than ever before. And in achieving this continuous power-flow, vibration has been virtually eliminated. \ So that now Saxon "Six" has longer life-a greater period In which Its efficiency remains unimpaired through wear. As nearly as can be estimated Its endurance Is somewhere around 20% greater than any other car In Its class. I And the economy of Saxon "Six" In gasoline has kept pace with its other abilities. 206 stock model Saxon "Sixes" recently ran 300 miles apiece without stopping and averaged 23.5 mites per gallon of gasoline. Judging from present day sales It will be hard to get prompt deliveries on Saxon "Sixes" before long. For the demand is practically abreast of production now. So we urge you to come in at once. The Smoothest Running Car It can be fairly said that Saxon "Six" is the smoothest. quietest, most flexible car In the field. To dispute this would be to question facts. With a 2 Inch crankshaft and a score of detailed refinements in the motor, vibration and friction have been practically dispelled. And with these gone the life of the motor Is largely lengthened. In fact, now, running with full load, Saxon "Six" has the stamina to stand up twice as long as the best known "four" in its class also running under full load. In other phases of performance, too, this absence of vlbratlori" helps. It makes gear shifting a thing of the past save In rare cases. A big roomy easy-riding car. Price 5 Passenger Touring Car $1410.00 Lethbridge You'll find this new series Saxon "Six" roomier and more comfortable than ever before. The doors havo been widened. So entrance and exit Is easier and more convenient. The cushions have been given added depth and greater restfulncss. Two people In the front and three In the back seat find more than common riding space. To accentuate the supremely easy riding qualities of Saxon "Six" the rear spring has been lengthened to 411/z Inches. And every added Inch means1 Just so-much more discomfort taken from rough roads-just so much more luxury added to good roads. THE H. T.

During the three games no one had the opportunity ot making a home run hit. Refreshments -were sold on the grounds by the Progressive club, from a quickly constructed booth. The day's proceedings concluded with a grand ball in the evening, which was attended by goodly numbers from the neighboring towns. The Magrath people feel elated over the success of the team, and would like to see them bump up against a nine from Lethbridge.
