Possesses important feature of design which are found
also in those higher priced cars as embodying the very
latest and best engineering practices. These superior
features, which for two years have distinguished the
Oakland Six as a car of unusually advanced design, and
which are now employed in the latest models of many
of the more costly cars, not to be found in their entirety,
in any of the other cars in the Oakland price-class. As
a result, the Oakland Sensible Six, in the estimation of
the buying public, is raised above the plane of its price,
and naturally is compared to and competes with cars of
considerable higher price than its own.

INSTALL A NEW MACHINE.

that another one like it exists. It
is known in machine "shop par

and with which any kind of a gear
can be cut. A spiral gear, a beval
gear or a gear of any other kind of
make. The purpose for which this
machine is secirred, especially is for
making what is known as a spiral
or worm gear, for the patent stcar
ing device which Mr. Sharp has per
fected for Ford cars, which add to
the safety of running them.

W. A. ROBERTSON,
East of Riley Hotel.
Not many days since, while we
were looking after the illusive item,
and they are illusive, for sure, we
dropped into conversation with a
young man, or rather a boy, for he
will not have reached man's estate
for a few years yet. When we in
quired where he was going, he said
"To Ilavelock, where I am going to
try to get to learn a trade." We
liked this, for this young man to be
imbued with .the idea of selecting a
vocation for life, and then knowing
all there is to know of that vocation.
We slapped him on the shoiilder and
said, "Good for you, my lacl." We
like that idea, that a young man
shall want to know how to do the
thing best, which he is to do. Be
prepared for any and all emergen
cies which may come your way in
life. When you have decided what
you would like to do in life, then
prepare for that job, know all about
it there is to know, and keep on
learning even after you have began
to work at it as life's vocation.
There are plenty of things which
one can do in this world, and of all
these, you have your choice, choose
well, and when the choice has been
made, push your investigation of all
the ways of performing the work
in your line the best, and no one
can prevent you from achieving suc-
It has boon said and truly,
thai the man who does any-
better than the
the world make a
his door," and v.o believe this is so.
Whatever your task may be, and you
may choose it fall in love with it,
for it is yours for life, and you
should bo on speaking terms with
what you do. Know it, and know it
well, and "the world is your s."
