GRANT Six Convertible Car
T"0 you expect to drive your car this
fall and winter? If you do, why not
look forward to the cold days and buy
the practical, convertible Grant Six.
that gives you -year-round use and great
est service? Because it is warm and pleas
ant now, don't forget that in this climate
you can be sure of many damp, chilly and
very cold days.
A Grant Six convertible, enclosed car
bought now is a real investment.
Higher prices for enclosed
cars axe a certainty. The
demand for enclosed
cars is rapidly increasing
and far fewer will be
built this fall than ever before.
Your convertible Grant Srx will give
you a cool, comfortable, fully-open sum
mer car and a warm, comfortable, fully
closed and luxurious car for fall, winter
and next spring. The change is made in
a minute or two by simply lowering the
windows into the body and completely
out of sight.
No other convertible, enclosed cars of
comparable price approach the Grant
' Six models in fine finish
and beautiful appear
ance. They are master
pieces of body building
on a splendid chassis.

PEPP TAKES DANIELS
SALESMAN TAKES DISTRIBUTION
OF HIGH-CLASS CAB.
Cnstom-Made Bodies and Many In
dividual Refinements Mark Eight
David A. Pepp severed his connection
last week with the Brunn Motor Car
Company, for which he has been sales
manager, to become Oregon distributor
lor the Daniels Eight.
He has already opened a salesroom
at 84 Broadway street, next to Ballou
& Wright. He expects to have a big
euccess with the Daniels in this terri
tory, as it is a car of great individuality
of design and with many refinements
that appeal especially to the person
able to afford a motor car in the high
The Northwest distributor for the
Daniels Eight is Mr. Henderson, of
"Walla Walla, who has sold a large
number of the cars in that territory.
The Daniels line Is also represented in
Seattle. It made its first appearance
In Portland at the Automobile Show In
the City Auditorium last February.
The bodies of all Daniels cars are
custom-made, and come in a large
variety of styles to accord with the in
dividual tastes of purchasers. The Dan
iels is equipped with the well-known
Hurshel-Spillman aeroplane motor.
H AliF- SOLE TIKE LIKE SHOES
One Just as Reasonable as Other,
Says Half-Sole Tire Dealer.
"You wouldn't think of throwing
away a pair of shoes just because the
first sole had worn thin," said W. E
Rogers, manager of Hutchinson & Rog
ers, distributors for the International
rubber half-soles for tires. "Far from
It, you would go at once and have them
half -soled and get as much wear again
out of them.
"The same Idea is being applied with
great success to automobile tires. If
you have been throwing away your
tires Just because they were tread
worn, then you have been paying your
share of an enormous yearly waste In
prematurely worn-out tires.
International rubber half-soles are
to the tire just what ordinary half-
oies are to the shoe. They double or
treble the life of the tire at a cost of
little more than half what you would
pay out for new ones."
Watch Spark Plugs for Soot.
When spark plugs habitually become
fouled with oil and soot, it is a good
plan to investigate and see whether
they may not be projecting too far
Into the combustion chamber, particu
larly when they are located in either
one or the other of the valve pockets.
If they are screwed into the valve
ort caps, the removal of the caps with
the plugs in them will be the best way
to determine the condition. The points
or the outer end of -the shell should
extend very little beyond the inner
faces of the valve caps. Anyway, ad
justments to the carburetor or lubri-
ating system should be made to pre-
ent excessive Ran or oil feed.
