H-M-F ear is I tucked up by a definite promise the most liberal in motordom. Not only the ear but the equipment as well aside from tires, which are guaranteed
by the manufacturers are included in its provisions. Don't be misled by trickily-worded promises that warrant cars for indefinite periods. Some of these "guar
antees," carefully analyzed really mean nothing. The conventional 90-day guarantee is a relic of antiquity a legacy of the days when the motor car was an ex
periment, not a standard, staple article. The E-M-F guarantee is a definite promise for a definite period ONE WHOLE YEAR. Manufacture of a car like this at
a figure that makes possible the quoted selling price is the industrial achievement of the age. It is an achievement possible to no other manufacturer of motor cars.

COREY TO POOR

Salem, Or., April 25. Chief Clerk
H. H. Corey of the secretary of
state's office says he haa been strongly
urged to make the race for secretary
of state at the next election, both by
his friends and by the friends of the
late secretary, Frank W. Benson.
However, Mr. Corey says that he is
unable to be a candidate for the office
on account of the financial require
ments. Unless his friends are sincere
enough to provide financial support for
his candidacy, Mr. Corey says such
a move on his part is out of the ques-

THE VERY LATEST
Astoria, Ore., April 29. Glenn Cur
ti ha written a special description
of his monster Hydro-aeroplane which
is to fly at the Astoria Centennial dur
l"g the third week of the pageant.
Thia ia the first time Mr. Curtis has
written about his combined motor boat
and air ship. Ilia description fol
"The hydro-aeroplane la the newest
and most sensational thing in aviation.
I developed it from the Standard Cur
tis Aeroplane, at San Deigo, Cab, dup
ing the past winter, and it ia heralded
by the experts in aerial navagation a
the greatest advancement since nun
first learned to fly.
"This new wonder of the air Is pop
ularly call led "The Triad," meaning
the union of three. It takes this name
from the fact that it reprsents the
conquest of three elements, air, water
"The Triad can fly sixty miles an hour,
saint the water like a racing motor
boat at fifty miles an hour. It can riae
from the earth and alight upon the
water; start from the water and come
down on the land, or be exclusively
on either land or water.
"A flight by the Triad from the wat
er is far more spectacular than a flight
by the ordinary aeroplane. To see it
skim the water like a swooping gull
and then rise into the air, circle and
soar to great heights, and finally to
drop gracefully down upon the water
again, furnishes a thrill and inspires a
wonder that does not come with any
other sport on earth.
"The hydro-aeroplane is safer than
the ordinary aeroplane. For this rea
son it is bound to become the mot
popular of all aerial craft. The begin
ner can take it out on his neighboring
lake or river, or even the great bays,
and skim it over the water until he ia
fcu.e of himself and sure that he can
control it in the air. He can fly it six
' feet above the water for any distance
. with the feeling that even if something
' should happen to cause a fall, he would
' not be dashed to pieces. The worst he
could get is a cold bath."
He held positions in the county clerk's
office in that county before accepting
( the position as auditing clerk under
Mr. Benson, from which position he
was promoted to chief clerk upon the
; appointment of S. A. Kozer as insur-
