A Complete, High
Grade Family Car
This Is Your Car If You
Want A "Six" Success
. Only a short time ago you wore com
pelled to pay from $3,000 to $0,000 for a
eix-ylinder cnr. Tlven at those figures
you were not nssurod of the present (lay
kao5wledge in automobile building. Just
as improvements have been made on
JiarveBting machines alarm clocks
telegraph systems and other every-day
necessities,' so have they been made in
the automobile industry, and all the
modern automobile improvements are to
be found in the Saxon.
Today there are four new ideas in mo
tor car design. First light weight.
i Second high speed motor. Third
yacht-line body. Fourth increased rid
ing comfort 'for all passengers.
I All four of these modern ideas you
j will find incorporated in the Saxou
"Six." Light weight conies from right
design and right niatcriuls. Expensive
I nickel steel in Saxon axles, steering
' irear and other vital parts is lighter and
'stronger than ordinary steel. Vanadium
steel makes better springs and reduces
I their weight.
The Saxon hitrh speed motor design
gets more power on less gasoline than
; was formerly possible with a bigger
motor. Today in your touring car, of
course, you want a "Six." No lesser
motor can give you the sameeven pull

A short lime ago 206 "Saxon Sixes"
traveled 61,800 miles without stopping.
Each car covered 300 miles. The gasoline
consumption averaged 23.5 miles per
A week later 38 Saxon "Sixes" raced in
relays from New York to 'Frisco in 6
days, 18 hours and 10 minutes a record
in automobile speed from coast to coast.
In both cases were the cars strictly stock
models. In both cases were the drivers
Saxon dealers--not professionals. And
therein is the real significance of that
average of 23.5 miles per gallon of gaso
line and that time of 6 days, 18 hours and
10 minutes. For what these cars and
drivers did is no more than you and your
Saxon "Six" can do. Saxon "Sixes"
identical in every detail with those 206 in
the 300 mile non-stop run and the 38 in
the Atlantic-Pacific dash are on our floor
now. We urge you to see them at once.
Saxon "Six" is $925 f. o. b., Salem.

smoothness power flexibility.
Except for starting the car, gear
shifting is practically unknown to Sa
on "Six" owners.
The yacht-line body of the Saxon
"Six" exemplifies the latest in motor
car fashion. This type of body originat
ed in Europe some time ago and has
happily been taken up in this country,
until today people are demanding that
their touring cars be furnished with this
type of body.
The Saxon "Six" is a big car for five
people plenty of room in driving com
partment and tonneau. The long, re
silient, cantilever springs assure riding
If you seek speed, the Saxon "Six"
has it. Recently a slock model covered
miles from I.os Angeles to San
Francisco in 13 1-2 hours, beating the
"Lark" (the .Southern Pacific's fastest
mail train) by 15 minutes.
If you seek power, the Snxon "Six"
hns it. "It laughs at hills." The car
is absolutely phenomenal in its power
and flexibility and our dealers welcome
any test you may care to invite. Wo arc
perfectly confident that the Saxon
"Six" for power, speed, flexibility, ac
celeration, hill climbing, quietness,
smoothness, coolness, comfort, economy,
will outperform any car in its price
clans. Ask to be shown.

High Priced Car Gets
More Careful Treatment
Here's another angle to the matter:
Did it ever occur to you that the 15,000
car is called upon to withstanding less
illusage, while being treated to vastly
better care, than it the low-priced
car! Nevertheless, this is a fact. The
high-priced car is not only driv('ii by a
chauffeur who has been trained to a
high degree of skill in the factory that
made it, but it is also his sole duty
to look over his car every morning;
make any little adjustments that arc
necessary; catch the slightest valve
wear or gear growl the minute it be
comes perceptible, and make the neces
sary adjustment to prevent its going
further; to clean and adjust his car
buretor, spark plugs, his magneto; and,
finally, to oil every part, including
springs and joints that you would
never think of. Above all, to keep the
car clear of dirt and grit, inside and
Now, what of the low-priced cart
This is driven by the owner himself
ninety-nine times out of a hundred.
And the care it gets is such as he may
hatfe the skill or the time to devote
-But it has one characteristic over
the high-priced, mechanically compli
cated automobile that motorists havo
fast grown to appreciate one need not
be a professional chauffeur or mechan
ical expert to drive and care for it.
Beyond the matter of gasoline, oil
and water, the low-priced car requires
little attention. Its design re fleets the
utmost in simplicity. Its motor is free
from intricate mechanism. Its con
struction carries out the same idea.
Thus the never-ending necessity of
"tuning up" experienced by owners
of expensive automobiles is made
obsolete. When you want to run your
car, it is ready to run, for you. When
you need it to respond to your desire,
it does so. .
Kngineers who create a low-priced
car anticipate the conditions that even
tually exist pertaining to their product.
Thov realize that their field is made
up almost entirely of every day men
nnd women who livo every day lives
and who want an automobile for every
day use. Then they build n car to
answer this demand. Notwithstanding
that fully fifty per cent of low-priced
cars have tj undergo, as their first
duty, tho hazardous service of being
driven by novices, it is a demonstrated
fact that this same simplicity over
comes tee troubles so often experienced
by new drivers and results in com
mendable, consistent sor.'ice to all
owners. This is particularly Uuo or
the Aljxwell car. .
It would bo well if every driver ot
a new car would learn to drive it at a
moderate rate of speed say not over
20 mile an hour for the first few
weeks. In so doing the new cur would
have a chance to limber-up.
If it is driven at a modest speed at
first, it will become flexible, sweet
running and noiseless.

Let the Maxwell "Answer" for Itself
That's the way we like to handle
prospective buyers. Nothing suits
us better than to have them put the
Maxwell through the hardest tests
compare it with other cars make
it stand on its own merits.
When this is done, the buyer is
made to appreciate the remarkable
value we are offering.
We say remarkable value and
that is just what it is. When you
think of a completely equipped, high
grade automobile being sold for $685
you must admit that it is a remark
In fact, there is no other car that
comes anywhere near the Maxwell.

You get appearance, comfort, en
durance, reliability, easy riding, and
"absolute completeness. There is
nothing to buy extra.
And so you can readily understand
why we are glad,. in fact, really anx
ious to have the Maxwell compared
and inspected so carefully. We know
what the verdict of the buyer will be.
We know that when he realizes
how the Maxwell is built what it
will do--how complete it is he will
want it regardless of price. He will
want it because it answers exactly
his every requirement.
We're glad to show you anytime.
