Big Possibilities for New Dealers
in Automoible Field of Thriv-
Recognition of Canadian as a
thriving community that Kives
promise of big opportunities in
the automobile field.has led
Dodge Brothers to establish rep-
resentation here, with Nims Mo-
tor Co. as the newly appointed
dealer. Mr. E. L. Nims has just
been notified that he now has the

The remarkable popularity of
the Dodge Brothers Motor Cat-
has caused automobile men all
over the country to clamor for
sales privileges, but Dodge Broth-
ers policy of quality in selling
methods, as well as quality in the
car, requires a painstaking inves-
tigation in every instance before
a selection is made. In Mr. Nims
Dodge Brothers have a dealer on
whom they believe they may rely
for both progressiveness and fair
The prompt manner in which
Dodge Brothers assumed one of
the foremost positions in the auto-
mobile industry is regarded as a
striking testimonial to the high re-
gard in which their name was
was held by the public even be-
fore they marketed a motor car
'bearing this name. Prior to that
tinrj Dodge Brothers had built

IV. GLASSES 11.
THE INVISIBLE BIFOCALS
Kryptoks (pronounced Crip-
tocks), without that con-
.spicious age revealing
"crack" or seam, give the
convenience of NEAR and
FAR vision in one pair of
glasses. There is not the
slightest trace of a seam or
hump. The two powers (the
Sower for close work; and
the upper for distance) are
joined together in one solid,
smooth, crystal-clear piece.
Notwithstanding the fact
that Kryptoks look exactly
like single vision glasses,
they enable you to see both
near and far with equally
keen vision. That's why they
are known everywhere as the

ther information concerning

the vital parts for more than a
half million other cars, establish-
ing a reputation for thorough-
ness and mechanical skill.
This reputation has been more
than upheld. It is said of Dodge
Brothers in explanation of their
unusual success, that they spare
no money nor effort in bunlding a
car to suit their particular ideas
of thoroughness in manufacture.
What their ideas on this subject
mean to the purchaser of their
product may be imagined from the
fact that they have a staff of
more than 700 inspectors who do
nothing but check up on workman-
ship in the various processes of
manufacture. In addition there
are several large departments de-
voted entirely to similar work,
such as the physical and chemical
laboratories where raw and finish-
ed materials as subject to tests

It is significant that the first
Dodge Brothers Motor Car ever
built was made up exactly as a
car in the regular line of produc-
tion. Ordinarily the "experimen-
tal job," as the first car is known,
is built of castings because of the,
great time and expense involved
in preparing dies for forgings.
Dodge Brothers, however, decided
to make their experimental car
just like the car they expect-
ed to build, in every detail, so that
neither they nor the public might
be "fooled." So they spent almost
a year in making these dies and

preparing otherwise for a com-
pletely manufactured car. As a
result, when the car was built

I what the public might expect of

.this first car, altho only an "ex-

He Couldn't Give It Away
It seems to us that there could
have been dozens of ways for Car-
negie to have given away or used
his fortune to bless and benefit
humanity. First of all is the mis-
sion fields for spreading the gos-
pel of Christianity, civilization
and clean living to the countries
of the remote sections of the
world. Next there are the unset-
tled and undeveloped portions of
| the world that humanity is crying
I for, for homes. He could go to
those places and build irrigation
projects, monuments that will last
thru the ages and will supply hu-
manity with a place to live and
prosper and a chance to get a
foothold on life. He could have
loaned his money at a low rate of
interest to people to buy homes
| and farms.
1 There are thousands of worthy
projects the world over that are
crying for money to finance them
with, projects which in their de-
velopment would furnish hun-
dreds of thousands of opportuniti-
es for good people to lift them-
selves out of the mire of poverty
or at best the drudgery of a mea-
ger monthly wage. The heathen
world is living in rot because
of unsanitary conditions and no
doctors. Carnegie could have
appropriated a fund to pay
salaries that would attract
young men to the. medical profes-
sion and send them as sanitary
and medical missionaries to the
He could have founded great
medical schools in the United
States for patching up the poverty
stricken blind, the crippled and
the helpless of the United States.
In the field of research and sci-
ence that bear directly on the ills
of the human body there are
boundless opportunities if the
money is to be had.
There are the wretched people
in the'slums of the cities, people
that need clean, decent places to
live in at a reasonable rent.
People that need a chance to get
away from their life of toil that
is really slavery in the cities.
And then to think that he died
worth $300,000,000 because he
couldn't give it away. That is only
buncomb. When a man says he
can't give away money it is be-
cause he loves the almighty dol-
lar too well himself. It is the
little god he carries in his heart
and worships and can't put. down
under his feet. No, Andy couldn't j
give it away.
