Many interested car lovers nave
stopped before the windows of
the Bonesteol Motor company
showroom to study the symmetri
cal lines of the two new closed
cars, a Dodge coupe and a sedan.
The two cars, laid out on the
newest Dodge lines', are. even
ahead of the usual Dodge perfec
tion of finish and design, and
many a spectator has instinctively
raised a hand to nib away the
headache the old. unappreciated
bus, or else fingered hfc check
book or purse to see whether ho

Beyond Alsea, better road is
around point of Digger mountain
instead of the hill road; con
struction under way east and west
of Tidewater; fair to Waldport.
Care should be taken between Al
sea and Waldport as this is gen
erally a one-way road and un
surfacfed. The Dallw-Californla Highway

couTrf squeeze out enough for one
of the new beauties.
The sedan did not linger long
in the display. It was taken over
without warning by Dr. L. F.
Griffith of tahe state hospital, and
be is almost wishing that the
winter would come so that he can
defy all the elements there are
by sitting inside, the luxurious
new car and saying:
"Lefer rain! We're here first
and she is tight enough to swim
if the water gets that deep. Some
