[ Centerville , Nebr. , Ga/ette : ]
John Schoenfeldt went down to Council HluIVs New Year's day
to look over the Jackson automobiles. Xow John wanted to be sure "
about the hill cli nbing qualities of any car that he might purchase ,
and lie had heard of the Jackson Model U's hill climbing qualities ,
and after the usual demonstrations he inquired if the car had done
the best it could. The Pioneer Implement companies had in reserve
a thriller for the buyer who wants to be shown , and as John asked
for the third degree , he got : t.
Gaily Model C moved the paved streets in search for "hills to
conquer. Quite innocently it poked its radiator up Tenth avenue ,
and with the sudden roar of the opened muffler it fairly jumped at
the two block straight run up the paved hill side. The hill seemed
to fairly rise up to meet friend John , and as IhcfamoiH hill climber
increased its speed and the road seemed to terminate in a perpen
dicular bluff , tnulegy seemed imminent. With a sudden whisk at the
end of the pavement the car vas off at a racing speed sharply to
the right. Below the housetops , to the left the rearing hill , ahead
only a few hundred feel the empty air. Suddenly the car swung to
the left , and below were the roads previously traveled , only fifteen
feet away horizontally , but suffering Jehosaohat ! how much perpen
dicularly ? To tlu right once more , around a tree , always rising ,
always racing , the c'ar sped on over a little shelf of road dinging
dizzily to the side ol the blulV. Now to the right , then again to the
left , directions were ut'ter'y ' lost ; Suddenly between the trees the
car brought into view , Plattsmoulh , twenty miles away , and llelle-
vue. Lake Manawa was actually f-mr miles away , but it seemed as
though the car must shoot into space and land in its waters. A quiet
turn of the wheel l > v the driver , the racing for higher heights -swept
v&ww Model "E Tourabout
At every second it seemed as though the car nuisl jump into
empty space or crash into the side of the bin IV. A sudden whisk
through a forty foot cut and the dales of Fairmont park were entered
and still the car sped on , rising , turning , whirling onward and always
upward , until with a last final turn the peak of the blulV , 22G feet
above the car's start. Only seventy brief seconds brought John and
the little heroic Model C into the rarilied atmr sphere at the top.
Quietly the car rolled along the roadway at the peak , while our
friend John wiped the water out of his eyes , filled his lungs with the
gusty winds , and then John quietly melted down into the big leather
seat and asked to be taken home by some other route less hazardous , II I
No persuasion could induce our friend to ride down the road he luul I

St. Helena , our little Napoleonic
colony in mid-Atlantic , is a model
lommunity. Its governor , Col. Gall-
woy , is also its judge , but in the lat

times , but the only business is the
presentation of white gloves.
Nevertheless St. Ilclona has an
