Aurora tiri's Hard Fate
“With her neck broken and her
IhhI.v paralyzed from her head
downward, Mrs. Kose Harvey of
Abbott lived for five weeks before
her death, which occured in Den
ver at St. Anthony’s hospital.
Physicians who attended her mar
velled at her vitality. The acci
dent occured when Mrs. Harvey,
in her attempt to open a large,
sliding barn door at her home,
pulled it off its runners. It fell,
striking her on the head and shat
tering the fifth vertebra.” Fur
ther information concerning the
above item from a Fort Morgan
(Colo.) newspaper is given in the
following letter from Miss Laura
Sawyer to Mrs. F. A. Burt:
“Brodhead, Wis., March 14, ’15.
—DearCai rie: I received a letter
a few days ago with the news of
Bosa Boorum's death, and as it
was such a tragic affair I thought
I would send you the clipping.
She leaves a son about 16 years
old. She had worked so hard and
kept him in school until he finished
the eighth grade. Her husband
was killed when her boy was a few
weeks old. He was thrown from
a horse and his neck broken. I
think Rosa made good. She taught
ih Washington county, Colo., for
a number of years. Her father
and mother are dead. I know
nothing about the boys. I thought
Schoonover might put it in his
paper. We are all well. It has
been a very severe winter here
and we are glad that spring is
iiear. I hope this may find you
all well. Please remember me to
all my friends and ex-pupils. How
I-would love to see you all.”
; Rose Boorum will be remem
bered by old.settlers as a member
of one of Aurora’s early families.
She attended the old Hamilton
school when it was taught by Miss
Sawyer 25 or 30 years ago, and
Mrs. Burt, James Schoonover and
Roger Work were among her
schoolmates. The Boorums moved
west while Rosa was still a girl
and her old friends here had heard
nothing from her since until the
news came of her tragic death.—

The U. P. pfeople are going to
rebuild their bridge south-east of
8t. Paul, They have a big force
of men here at present and they
are hard at work on the bridge.
They are up against a stiff proposi
tion. They are going to build
the bridge and keep the old one
open to travel all the time while
they are at work on the new struc
ture. The erection of this bridge
will be a great improvement, es
pecially to those who use it for a
wagon bridge, as the new floor
will be much better than the old
patched excuse for a floor which
has been in use there for a long
time. Of course the railroad com
pany is not to be blamed as they
were trying to make the old floor
last until they built the new
bridge.—St. Paul Press.
H. Steele of Loup City came
here Tuesday to look for a house
for rent for his parents and self
to live in. This will add another

You can own an exact duplicate of “Wild Bill
Turner’s or Billy Carlson’s record-breaking Maxwells
Think of owning one of these same Maxwells—think of driving it wherever you want to—
over any kind of road - up any kind or lulls, wherever four wheels can go, die same car for $695.
Remember, every 1915 Maxwell is
an exact duplicate of the ^regular
stock Maxwell Touring Cars in which
“Wild BH” Turner broke the world’s
record up Mt. Hamilton, 21 ^ miles in
483 minutes, beating the world’s record
by 16| minutes, and “Billy” Carlson
broke the world's record up Mt.
Wilson, California, making nine miles
(up an elevation of 6;000 feet) in 29
minutes and 1 second, beating the pre
vious world’s record by 13 minutes.
That’s the kind of hill-climber you
get when you get a Maxwell.
Now about speed and endurance—*
here are some recent Maxwell Rac
ing; Car records:—
barney Oldfield in a Maxwell Rac
ing Car broke the world’s non-stop
record at Corona, California, for
300 miles, averaging 86.3 miles per
hour. Think of it—not a stop made!
T hen, right on top of this marvel
ous motor record, along came “Billy
Carlson in his Maxwell Racer and
made still another 300 miles non -stop
record in the San Diego race. Again a
Maxwell Racer ran 300 miles with
out a stop!
These Maxwell Racing Cars are
built by the same Designers, the same
Chief Engineer, that build the regular
Maxwell Cars; and the same Max
well Laboratory Tested Steel is used
in them that is used in the regular
stock Maxwell Tourincr Cars.
But, aside from hill-climbing and speed, power and endurance records, here are some of the
facts about Maxwell comfort,—Maxwell special features,—Maxwell beauty and Maxwell service.
Read This List of Expensive Features. The 1915 Maxwell Has These Features And Many Others.
Attractive Streamline Body
Pure streamline body; graceful crown fender®,
with all rivets concealed All the grace, stylo
and “snap” that you will lind in any of the highest
priced cars.
A High-Tension Magneto
Nearly all the high priced cars have high tension
magnetos. A high tension magneto gives po. iiive
ignition. The Siuuns magneto, with which the Max
well is equipped, is recognized as one of the best
magnetos made.
Left Side Drive—Central Con rol
Left side steer with gear shifting levers in center
of driving compartment—center control—has been
accepted by leading makers of expensive automo
biles as the safest and most comfortable for the
driver; that is why the Maxwell has it. The Max
well is so easy to drive and control that a child
can handle it.
Three-Speed S.Vding Gear Transmission
All high priced cars have a sliding gear iran3
mission. It is costly to make, hut it is the b< , t.
If the motor has the power, sliding gears wjil
pull the rar out of any mud or sand. Tho Maxwell
b«‘.s a three-s'H . ci selc. . .v sii hr.g tear transmission
because Maxwell engiin>n-< do u-.t consider any
other type to be worthy cl the Maxwell car.
Double-Shell Radiator with Shock
Absorbing i)evice
The Maxwell radiator is of hand'ome design,
gracefully curved, and it i built to be tumble
proof. It is the expen ive douide hell type and
has ample coolir.g rui'ucity. The radiator is
mounted to the frame by means o.' a shock ab
sorbing device on each side, which relieves the
radiator of all twists and distortions of the frame,
caused by roughness of the road. The shock ab
sorbing device also him ohz.s the possibility of
radiator leaks.
The Rocroy Full 5-Passenger Body
Adjustable F:nn Seat
The 1015 Maxwell lias e full r.own 5-pr.ssenger
body. The front seat is adjustable, you can move
it three Indus forward or oac. ward. This makes
the car really comfortable for the driver. Xo
cramped legs for tall people or uncomtortabie
reaching for short pec pie. Most drivers’ seats are
made to fit anyone—so lit no one.
Low “Up-ke«p” Carburetor
The carburetor used on the Maxwell was espec
ially designed for it after long and severe testa
under every conceivable condition. Economy tours
conducted by hundreds of dealers and owners in
different sections of the country have proved its
efficiency, its quick response to throttle and its
extremely low consumption of gasoline. It has
been termed the ' low up-keep" carburetor.
Irreversible Steering Gear
The greatest margin of safety has been pro
vided in the steering gear of the 191 f> Maxwell.
The Maxwell irreversible steering mechanism is
of the expensive worm-and-gear type and its su
periority over every other type lie, in its many
adjustments. At no time is more than a fourth of
the bearing surface of the gear which operates
the worm in use. When needed, a new bearing
surface may be hud .by adjusting the gear a quarter
ot» a turn. in short, the Maxwell steering gear
has four times the adjustment of any other kind.
Heavy Car Comfort
What surprises most people is the smooth, buoy
ant riding Qualities of the Maxwell. The spring
suspension of the 1915 Maxwell is the same costly
combination of long semi-elliptical front springs
and the three-quarter elliptic rear springs that
is used on most heavy weight, high priced cars.
The Maxwell ofTers you every essential of the high
est priced machines at a fifth of their cost.
One Size of Tire —Anti-Skids on Rear
The Maxwell car is one of the easiest cars In the
world on tires. Maxwell owners carry but one
spare tire and but one size of spare tubes. Econom
ical 30 inch x 3l/2 inch tires are used all around.
A famous make of anti-skid tires are suppled
on rear wheels.
A Dependable Electrie Starter
For $55 extra, you can -have your Maxwell de
livered equipped with the famous Slmms-Huft elec
tric starter. This starter is efficient, trouble proof
and easily operated.
And the Maxwell is completely equipped from the
clear vision, ventilating windshield at the front
to the spare tire carrier at the rear. When you
buy a Maxwell you have nothing extra to buy.
