And the activities of tho rovonuo
ngonts nro not confined to counter
attack nlono, In fact, It la by con
dnctlnj; an offensive, rnthor than a do
fcnslvo that tho officers of tho law
hnvo boon most successful In frus
trating tho plana of tho liquor traf
fickers. Tho gonoral plan of otfenslvo fol
lowed by tho law enforces In Ontario,
especially along tho Essex border, is
woll Illustrated by tho nlchtly activi
ties of tho famous Hallam Strong'
Arm squad. This squad of flro "lie
men," captained by Itov. J. O. Sprack-
lin, tho two-fisted parson of Sand-
wfcli, Ont., is Riving tho, liquor out-
' lawn n real run for their money, or,
-ns moro accuratol yoxpressed, a real
tun for tholr liquor. Tho adventur-
"co of tho Strong-Arm sqtnd read Ul:o
a story from tho pages of fiction.
In tho dead of tho night tho
squad's big six touring car, a pow
erful I'nlgo Lakewood, purchased
by tho government especially for this
work, capable of traveling 75 miles
per hour, stands polsod at tho sldo of
on apparently desorted road, ready
for action. In It sit the flvo strong
arm men of tho Jaw, ostensibly at
caso, but actually with ovory sonso
Wort. Tho car's lights aro out. The
man at tho wheel, S. M. Hallam, a
Jiusky six-footer, is an oxpert In tho
handling ot a motor car. Ho Is, m
fact, nn nutomobllo racing driver. All
flvo nro powerful men mon of great
physical strength, and henco men who
know no fear.
A throb of a distant onglno tutors
through tho hoavy night air. A car
Is approaching from tho roar at high
speed. Tho strong-arm squad pre
pares for nctlon. Automatics nro
shitted tor convenient positions,
ready tor tho attack when tho pro
por moment arrives.
Tho approaching rum-runners nro
within two hundred foot of tho way
layers when suddonly tho road Is Il
luminated by tho hoadllghts of tho
car lying In wait. Tho drlvor of tho
rum-running car sots his teeth,
pushes tho accolorator to tho floor
board and runs tho gauntlot ot tho
light barrago. Shots dlroctod at tho
waylayors, ring" out ns tho outlaw
car whizzes past. Itcturn shots ring
out, aimed at tho tires of tho pass
ing, car. Tho big I'algo Is In mo
tion tho moment tho outlaw gives
ovldcnco that ho will chance tho pas
sage ot tho light barrier. Tho chase
Is on. v
Away goes tho outlaw at his top
most speed. Sixty miles an hour Is
nothing for a risk of death Is bet
ter than a certainty of prison. Uut
bohlnd comes a car which Is gra
ually speeding up to 7G. Tho di
viding distanco slowly diminishes.
Rovolvcrs crack ominously, but fin
ally ceoso. Tho outlaw's ammunition
Is exhausted but still tho cars raco
on. Now thoy nro nbroast. An of
ficer ot tho pursuing car climbs out
on tho running-board and then
changes cars with a doft loop. Tho
battlo of automobllo Is won.
"Papa, what do you call a man
who runs an automobllo?" 'It de
pends on how near ho comes to hit
ting mo. Houston Post.

THE AUTO IS
HE OF LIFE'S
"Transportation Is ono of tho flvq
necessities of llfo," says L. O. Arena
local dcalor In Chevrolet posBongor
and commercial cars.
"Wo requlro tood, fuel, clothing,
shelter and transportation. Without
transportation, tho othor necessities
could not bo distributed,
"Transportation movos tho seod to
tho farms nnd tho crops away. It
movos food nnd clothing to mer
chants' stores nnd distributes them
nmong tho peoplo who neod them. It
movos materials for building purpos
es. "Without transportation our cities
would wither nnd dlo; peoplo would
starvo. Without transportation, tho
farmer would havo to loam again
how to mnko his own clothing.
'Without transportation thoro
would bo no progress.
"And foremost of tho transpor
tation mediums ot tho present and
futuro stands tho automobllo.
'It stands foremost because it
gives ovory man tho ndvantago of di
recting to tho best markot tho com
modity ho sells, whether It bo a
product of tho soil or factory, or
man's own labor.
"It stands foremost bocnuso it Is
closer to tho noods of tho Individual
than any other means of efficient
transportation over has been.
"With theso lqdlsputablo facts be
fore us, It Is difficult to understand
how any man can seo anything but
great success tor tho automobllo business.

The busy world of today pays homage to the motor car.
Like other time and labor savers, it increases the pro-Juctive efforts
of the human race, making possible the accomplish nent of greater
tasks in a shorter period of time.
If you arc contemplating the purchase of a motor car as an aid to
timesaving, we ask that you consider especially the fivepassenger
Here is a car which, in size, speed and power, is especially suited
to the everyday needs of business. And, in beauty, comfort and
mechanical excellence, it is quite the equal of higher priced cars.
When you see the Light Six Paige, you will be agreeably sur
prised, we believe, to realize that a car of such outstanding worth
may be had at such a moderate price. uC .'
