DON'T overlook this matter of
power. It is important. You
want an automobile that will
carry you through mud, sand and
snow, and do it easily. You want a
car that will climb hills, that will get
away quickly without laboring and
straining its every part.
Not all cars can do these things,
but you know that the Maxwell can
because you have the proof.
When the Maxwell stock touring
car set the World's Motor Non-Stop
Mileage Record a few weeks ago, it
encountered all sorts of unfavorable
conditions rain, mud and hills, over
country and city roads yet it cov
ered 500 miles per day, day after
day, for more than six weeks.
Power, plenty of power, unfailing
power, is absolutely essential to such
a wonderful performance as this.
Let us give you a booklet telling
all the details of this record breaking
Maxwell car. And let us tell you
about our partial payment plan, by
means of which you can make a cash
deposit and pay the balance while
you use the car. Give us the oppor
tunity and we'll prove our case.

i.atiou, lins started some active work
Jin organizing various sub-committees in

! tions, to work among their own mem
J be. In Chicago, Charles M. Hayes,
1 president of I he Chicago Motor club and
; of the city public safety commission, is
carrying out similar plans.
Time Opportune.
"It is true that the advent of the
automobile into modern conditions of
life has probably hastened the time of

Bodies in the Government
general public have attained greater
national importance and influence
than that of the "safety first'' move
ment, which has been inaugurated by
various societies and organizations in
the last year. The slogan "safety
first" has become one of vital human
meaning and great work has been
done to reduce accidents and the
chance of accidents by the use of this
One of the most important move
ments of this character which has
been started within the last year is
that of the National Automobile
Chamber of Commerce, which com
prises practically every big automo-,
liie manufacturing concern in the
country. In order to educate, not only
automobile owners, but pedestrians, as
to the rights of each, President Clifton
of the chamber appointed a committee
to investigate tho matter ami make
recommendations to the national body.
This committer has. been investigating
the matter for the purpose of devising
the best way to preach the "safety
first" or it'might be called "courtesy
first" religion to general public.
Assistance Offered.
Various organizations have offered
to assist this committee in their work,
such as the Chamber of Commerce of
the Tinted States; the Safety First
Federation of America, with head
quarters in New York; the National
Safety council, with headquarters in
Chicago; the Wolverine Automobile
club of Detroit, nuil the Chicago Motor
club at Chicago. Frederick H. F.lliutt,
secretary of the Safety First Federa
tion of America, and Charles M. Tal
bert, director of .streets of St. Louis,
ami John (iillespie, commissioner of
police of Detroit, recently held n con
ference, with one of the committee in
for it entirely any more than to have
perhaps brought it on a little sooner,
but because it is the greatest 'develop
ment and has caused the biggest revolu
tion in modern and social existence of
anything that has ever been produced
or probably ever will Vie produced.
Auto On Trial.
"The automobile is on trial, appar
ently. The manufacturer is placed as
its aponner and it. is around this that
the question of 'safety first' somewhat
revolves. As a unit, the automobile
manufacturers are against the unlaw
ful use of the streets. This thing calls
for education anil not legislation; it
calls for co-operntion and not coercion.
We are not going to accomplish any
thing in the way of legislation unless
wo can get education and co-operation.

What Did You Mean
Gallop of "Gas"?
When is a gillon not a gallon
Tiiat all depends on the point of
It is not a gallon when mentioned
by a Canadian in the I'nited States.
It is not a gallon when alluded to by
a citizen of the II. .S. A., temporarily
m the Dominion.
This startling fact recently came to
light t the Maxwell headquarters in
Detroit, in the progress of an effort to
reconcile some performance of Maxwell
cars in Canada with feats of record in
the states.
II. t Ciirilwood, Montreal Maxwell
distributor, was telling of Maxwell
economy- as demonstrated by cars un
der his observation.
U Miles per Gallon!
"They often Average around forty
miles to the gallon of gasoline," he
declared. "I have myself driven one
of them on a trip where we undoubted
ly scored better than 44 miles on a run
of more than L'lio."
The man to whom the statement was
made was bewildered, lie know that
authentic records existed of long trips
in which Maxwells ha.l scored avenges
around Mi and 117 miles to the gallon.
Mr. (lirdwood's feats were however,
out of line, sugegsting road conditions
or inflammability of atmosphere alto
gether unknown south of the Cartailian
"What do you mean by 'gallon of
gasoline'.'" he asked at random.
"Why, regular, imperial measure gal
lon, of course," replied fiinlwooil.
A great light dawned on the factory
num. Investigation disclosed that the
Ivnglish gallon, on sale in Canada, is
almost 21) per cent larger thin the gal
lon measure provided in the United
States. Incidentally, it costs corre
spondingly more.
With this data it was easily seen
that the Maxwell cars in Canada were
no more generous in thenr vield of
miles to the gallon than ire the Max
wells on which record has been kept in
the States.
Easy to Set Records.
Motorists who have toured iu both
the United States and Canada will now
understand why their per gallon mile
age has been so much greater north of
the border. Those desiring to establish
economy records for their cars will also
be interested to know that in Canada it
is perfectly easy to improve their best
V. S. A. performances. Similar condi
tions also hold true with regard to oil
and its consumption.
Conversely, Canadian motorists who
make light uf supposedly meritorious
feats in Ainericin economy feats
which they themselves can readily ex
cell without ha 1 ft living, will wisely
make allowance for the fact that the
American gallon is only part of tiie gal
lon they pour into their tanks.
owned by (leruians and, in some cases
by Hussinns of (lerinan descent, have
been closed, conipulsorily wound up or
placed under government control.
Land ownership or tenancy by tier
mans or Austrians has been prohibited
and even in cases where such ownership
has continued for generations, the land
is to be disposed of voluntarily or at
public sale.
A number of Russian towns bearing
German names have either asked that
they be given new ones or have already
affected changes. A list of the more
important is as follows:
Old (ierinan name New Russian name
Schlusselburg Oreshak
T'eterhof I'etrodvar
Ornuieiibaum Hambov
Keval Kolyvan
Kkaterinburg Kkatcrinogrml
In many towns and some entire
provinces the use of the (ierinan lan
guage in the streets has been prohibited
under severe penalties. Most of the
secondary schools have eliminated it
from their curriculums.

The Saxon "Six" alone among cars of like price
approximates in actual performance the records
made within the past year by the newly-designed
multi-cylinder type, high speed motors of the costly
priced cars.
The reasons which enabled the Saxon "Six" to
speed 490 miles from. Los Angeles to San Francisco
in 1:5 hours, beating the Southern Pacific's fastest
train by 15 minutes to win a notable victory in
the famous hill-climb at Stamford, Conn. to have
a gasoline consumption average of 21 miles per
gallon and an oil consumption of 152 miles per
quart to accelerate from a standing start to 45
miles per hour in 23.6 seconds to idle a full half
hour "on high" at a rate of 1-j miles per hour are
seen below. '
1 Six-Cylinder Motor (Continental) specially
designed, high-speed motor, giving maximum
power per gallon of gasoline matchless flex
ibility, smoothness and coolness under all con
ditions. Gear shifting is practically unknown
to Saxon "Six" owners.
2 Radiator (Fedders) of best material, hand
some appearance, and absolutely cool at all
3 Bearings (Timke'n) it is impossible to give
the motor buying public a better impression
of Timken bearings than they now have. They
are universally used on the higher priced cars
and have always proved their worth.
4 Axles (Timken) the mere fact that we are
using Timken axles in the Saxon "Six" assures
the prospective purchaser that he is getting
the best axles to be had at any cost.
5 Drive Gear (Helical Bevel) conceded by
engineers to be the best and surely the most
quiet type of drive gear known.
6 Carburetor (Rayfield) of the latest and most
improved type. This carburetor is probably
the most favorably received by motor users and
is used extensively on much higher priced cars.
7 Ignition (Atwater-Kent) lowest consumption
of battery current and impossible to run bat
tery dry by inadvertently leaving plug in
switch board.
8 Saxon Clutch dry plate, distinctively Saxon.
Copied and imitated by other manufacturers
unsurpassed for smoothness.
9 Two - Unit Starting and Lighting System
(Wagner) silent, sure and enduring.
10 Springs (Cantilever) of Vanadium steel,
making the best spring suspension known. It
is the highest priced spring material obtain
able for cars of any price. All passengers are
always comfortable in a Saxon "Six."
11 Moulded Fenders accentuate the stream
lines of the body and complete appearance.
12 Economy The Saxon "Six" is economy cham
pion. Ignoring the low initial cost which is
self-evident, many users claim io average over
25 miles per gallon of gasoline. It is economy
produced by light weight, and light weight
gained by skilled design and top quality
13 Company Behind the Car The Saxon Com
pany has won the faith of the American people.
It is strong and vigorous, insuring users oi
competent service in years to come.
