it, except by road or laboratory tests. He then often discovers
too late, that the value he supposed was there is missing. Some
buyers are apt to judge a car largely by its appearance.
The automobile buying situation was summed up the other
day by one of our engineers, who said, in speaking of another
make: "From across the street I wondered why people buy our
cars and pay more money for them, when they can get the
cars. These cars look snappy. The advertising of their manufac
turers seems convincing. Mr. query, however, was answered
when I looked beneath the hood. Later in the day I talked with
the representative of the concern who builds their cylinders. You
know, such stuff as is put into that car, beneath the surface, we
could not even consider. Case could not afford it."
"Unfortunately, the average automobile buyer does not ap
preciate this fact. He is possibly convinced by their advertising,
though on close examination even this is of the same flimsy con
struction as the cars. The terms used are general and evasive.
They list many things in their specifications, but they give no
definite information. I compared the specifications of this par
ticular car with our specifications. I wondered then how they
ever sold one of their cars."
That is largely the whole situation. You have to take some
one's word for what is under the hood. Whose can you better
take than that ot a company such as the Case Company? Our
catalog completely describes the details of construction, giving
minutely the specifications of all materials and accessories.
Everything "out on the board," because we boast of the smallest
part of these cars. This catalog is yours if you are interested in
the motor car situation. We tell you in this booklet how we can
put values into automobiles where no other manufacturer pos

JOHN SWANSDN INJURED
BY TYSON'S AUTO REPORT
ED IN A DYING CONDITION
The big tractors will be given a
chance to demonstrate their
merits at the Nebraska state fan
Thursday, Sfrsptember 10. A tract
of land has been secured and
tractor men will show what their
machines will do under the man
agement of experts. Progresshe
farmers have been making in
quiries concerning the tractor
demonstration and are planning
to watch the proceedings.
The condition of John Swanson,
the man who was run over by the
automobile of I). T. Tyson on
Monday evening, took a decided
turn for the worse last evening,
when signs of a severe internal
injury developed, and the family
of the unfortunate man, as well
as the attending physician, hold
out but little hopes of his re
covery. This morning h seemed
to be sinking and it is thought
that death will be the final out
come of the unfortunate accident.
The facts in the case are being
thoroughly investigated by the
authorities, and so far they
seems to be as was stated in the
Journal last evening, and that at
the time the car struck Mr. Swan
son it was proceeding at a very
slow rate of speed. As is usual in
cases of this kind, all manner of
wild reports are given as to the
fads in the accident, and the pub
lic should not jump at. the wild
eyed rumors as to the fads in the
case. It is certainly one of the
most deplorable accidents that
has occurred here for a long time
and Mr. Swanson, who is. an in
dustrious, hard-working man, has
the sympathy of a host of friends
in his suffering, who are hopeful
that lie may recover, but the
chances seem very much against

The Swiss Counsel at St. Louis
Makes an Appel for Aid for
Rev. J. II. Steger has received
from the Swiss consul, J. J.
Meyer, a personal friend of his,
the following call for contribu
tions for Switzerland:
Confederates: In view of the
grave war situation by which
Switzerland is under obligation to
protect her neutrality, involving
a tremendous financial burden,
and iu view of the probably very
extensive sanitary service devolv
ing upon her, the Swiss legation
in Washington, D. C, has re
quested me to arrange for a col
lection of funds for the Swiss Red
Cross society within my district.
To this end I have created a cen
tral committee in St. Louis, Mo.,
consisting of the following Swiss
gentlemen: Mr. L. Men?, Mr. E.
Biodermann" and Mr. E. Muehle
mariii. Besides, arrangements
are made to organize sub-committees
in all the important cities
of my district to assist in the col
lecting of contributions which
have to be remitted into the hands
of the treasurer of the central
committee, Mr. Eugene Muehle
mann, care Swiss Consulate, 807
Merchants-Laclede Building, St.
Louis, Mo. We herewith appeal
to all the Swiss and Swjss so
cieties of the German, the French
and the Italian tongue within the
borders of southern Illinois, the
states of Missouri, Kansas and
Nebraska, to remember their
home ; country in these trialsome
days. Let all those who cannof;
bear arms in behalf of their counl
try help bear the financial obliga
tions of Switzerland. The hour
has come when we have an oppor
tunity to show our true patriotism
by our deeds. Let no one hold off:
Let each and every Swiss do his
duty in a liberal manner. Thf
small, as well as the large con
tributions are equally appreciat
ed. By order of the Legation of
Switzerland in Washington, D. C.
The Swiss Consul of the St. Louis
District, Dr. John J. Meyer.
