All along the Franklin has dem
onstrated its wonderful power of en
durance; its absolute reliability to go
anywhere and to return safely; its
economical up keep, its ample speed,
its grace, its beauty, and all along it
has won the admiration or Ameri
cans from one end of the country to
another. Its remarkable perfor
mances are not confined to any par
ticular section. It is awarded prizes
for important contests in Nebraska
as well as in New York. It goes
against all comers regardlessly it
wins when there is a ghost of a show
for a car to win.
I am proud of the Franklin. I
love to sell the Franklin. It is the
best car, I conscientiously believe,
in its class and its class is the best
class A demonstration will put you
in love with the Franklin..

Judging from the opinlcms of sereraJ of

would uv-rrome thu defect, it would rob

common gowip in motor circles that the

To change the race to a track event
would be to Chang the spirit of the be

may materialize. Fort Wayne automobile

which means a revival of Bennett Cup

many Continental followers of the sport.

The Woornan Circle, an independent
suxillarj". bas proven a worthy sister of
the Woodman of the World in the success
acheived in the past ten years. This period
bas been remarkable for the immense
growth of the insurance business. Many
cororanies have started with tiny begin
ings to acheive a success which was sur
prising even to the most hopeful pro
mote. In lias period cf general succa
the Woodman Circle has shared in no sma'.l

K-wrt' insurance ventures which have de
veloped mtt satisfactorily.
The Woodman Circle was incorporated
under the lew of the stale of Nebraska

presiding officer. In March, four year
later she found bcrself in charge of a'

consequent loss of membership, which al-wayt-eome

Against the wind it is beet lo flatten tbe

book so as to get a low ball. By play
ing the ball a trifle further toward the

flatten the stroke, the desired bail may
be secured. Practice alone will give con
fidence In seeking distance with consis

Before the wind the ch4ef effort should
be to get the ball well up ar.d cleanly

go over V yards in still air will freguentiy
fly and roll to ITS feet before a wind. A
following wind in some way or other tends
to prevent the club bead geltintc down to
the ball. Therefore, it is safest to per
