You may buy a Saxon believing it to be tho
best car in its class and you will get what
you pay for.
You may look for longer service, better per
formance and lower up-keep bills from your
Saxon than from any other car of like price.
And you will not be disappointed.
If there was any doubt that Saxon cars are the
best in their respective divisions it has long
And the proof of this you will find, a thousand
fold over, in the records of Saxon owners
and in the opinion of motor-car buyers in
general. Saxon cars have definitely estab
lished their superiority in every phase of
motor car performance.
And just as surely and decisively as they have
proved themselves abler acting cars, have they
proved themselves cheaper cars to keep up.
To build cars of, such quality and such value
clearly reflects the strength and soundness
and ability of the Saxon organization.

Canada made an appeal for farm labor
to till the fields and prepare the soil
for tho crops of grain that were nec
essary to feed the fighting forces and
keep up the requirements necessary

great that before half the tlmo limit
expired, over six thousand laborers
were secured. This was not suulent,
but once the United States wuh de
clared to be In a condition of war, and
farm labor required here to meet any
exigency as to short rations that might

from attempts, which l might mean n
