Workmanship and Materials
Make Saxons Popular
"(ii't away from the belief tliut 1 1
low-priced motor car is made at a sac
rifice of workmanship," is the advice
of I.lnyd I.. Ryan, tno local agent of
Snxmi Motor Car company. He offers
it 1u . all tnotorists land prospective
ones as a bit of information that will
prove worth while when studying motor
curs in general.
The workmanship of a number of the
moderate priced automobiles stands at
the top in many instances of perfection
in motor car building, according to Air.
'"increased efficiency in factory op
oration, the elimination of waste time
between the various processes, and the
many inventions to save, production
costs have made possible the construc
tion of the low cost ears with a grail"
of workmanship that is very high," he
said. "The most tvurable materials
have been made a part of this construc
tion until tho low priced car of today
is sold at a small price, not because
it is interiorly built and lacks the
quality of the expensive ears, but be
cause human ingenuity has turned the
motor car factory into a high speed
production machine, each part doing its
work excellently but quickly.
"Take the Saxon factory for exam
ple. The utmost care is used in build
ing Snxou motor cars. Tho quality ap
pointments of Saxon ' Six' evidence that
care has been taken to turn out a do
luxe motor car and to the mechanic
the assembly of the working parts
shows that no expense or time has been
"Kvery part of a Saxon 'Six' is sub
jected to the minutest scrutiny before
it is allowed to become a unit of thr
whole car. Kvery subdivision of the
mechanism is given n thorough test and
a slightest flaw sends it back for cor
rection, or, to the scrap heap.
"it isn't a case of putting the raint
on thi? body carefully and knocking !l

that leaves no room for flaws, and

apparent that price at least has little to
do with workmanship."

Time Payments On Motor
Cars Is the Latest Plan
Among the rumors that are current
iu financial circles of New York City
is one to the effect that big New York
and Chicago capital is back of the
newly formed (iuaranty Securities cor
poration. This is the N'ew York com
pany that is said to have formulated a
new and original plan hwereby auto
mobile dealers handling various kinds
of cars inn dispose of this product on
the 'Mime payment" basis.
Arrangements already have been en
tered into between several motor car
manufacturers and their dealers which
enable the latter to offer cars to their
customers on deferred payments. In
each case, however, the plans differ
and it is to offset this objectionable
feature that the (Iuaranty Securities
corporation has entered the field with
a selling plan that is declared to be
uniform for all makes of cars and na
tional in its scope.
Big Men Behind It.
While details of the plan have not
been made public, it is understood that
the group of capitalists who are respon
sible for it and who are Hack of it are
numbered among the most influential
in the country.
That this new company is destined
to pay an important part in the future
of the motor ear business is evidenced
by the fact that, it is capitalized on
the basis of handling fifty million dol

Tells Why Western Motor
Oils Have Advantage
"Why do motor oils made from asphalt-base
crude give best results, espe
cially in the matter of carbon depos
its i'' asked R. II. Campbell of .the
Standard Oil company, repeating the
question put to him by i Journal rep
"Well, it's a rather technical sub
ject for the ordinary citizen," said Air.
Campbell, "but as our friends the
chemists would say, oil made from asphalt-base
crude 'vaporizes and dis
tills without decomposition.' "
"In everyday langn ige that means
that oil which gets into the explosion
chamber does not break up under the
intense heat and : leave a deposit to
gradually bake hard on cylinder walls
and valves, and catch md hold carbon
derived from the motor fuel.
"Oil refined from asphalt-base crude
maintains its correct lubricating body
until its work m completed and then
pusses off with the exhaust, leaving a

YOU want a motor car that will
serve you consistently. You
want to know that your car can
bo relied updn day in and day out.
You want high mileage per gallon of
gasoline and freedom from repairs
and readjustments. And you want
these things, not occasionally, but
continuously day after day.
On these qualities the Maxwell has
made good. It has proved its worth.
When tha Maxwell stock touring car
set the World's Motor Non-Stop
Mileage Record a short time ago it
travelled for 44 consecutive days and
nights and its performance was con
sistent. It went about 500 miles each and
every day. It went within a small
fraction of 22 miles to every gallon
of gasoline. It went the whole dis
tance of 22,000 miles probably fur
ther than you -would travel in two
years without any repairs or read
justments. Every one of eight tires
(two sets) went just about 9,800
miles and the others finished in good
shape. For consistency and relia
bility this record far excels anything
we ever heard of.
You can get a Maxwell, an exact
duplicate of the record breaking
. stock car, on the partial payment
plan we have perfected. All you
have to do is to make the initial
payment, then take the car and
pay the balance as you ride. The
unusual value of the Maxwell, to
gether with our easy payment plan
of purchase, is bound to dispose of
our allotment of cars very quickly.
Better make your reservation now,
delivery later if you prefer.
