Automobile manufacturers of Indiana
are arrranglng for one of the most unique
and interesting trade trips ever proposed
for motorists. Four of the prosperous mid

tion of the forty-three concerns building
motor cars in the Hoosler commonwealth,
and active plans are now under way for
the event. The state la third in quantity
production of automobiles and it is the in
tention of the makers to show that it is
not surpassed in quality and reliability,
and they have decided to institute a trade
boosting trip with a small feature of a
contest just to enliven matters. The In
dianapolis Trade association has given its
support to the matter and from present
indications in the matter of actual entries
and promised participation it is probable
that the Indiana Four-State tour will have
the greatest number of ear "of any vnt

I arrived at Colorado springs, j immediately got Dusy
haullnc tourists to the different oolnts of interest In
tbe Pike's Peak region. They kept me busy day and night;
this, in fact, being the only day I have not been busy.
Outside of a puncture at Kocky Ford. Colorado, I made
tho trip without a mUhap. I never stopped for anything
but food and water except at Lyons, kanaaa. where 1
pulled a five paasenger out of the sand They
could not move either way. They had a rope with them

some one can pull them out when they get stuck. I nave

prlei the people out here. There is one hill out here
known as tbe Jonea hill that only one or two cars la this
vicinity can make on high sear, and mine Is one of them.
I often have seven passengers in my oar besides myself,
and I go up tho hills and down the grade without any
I ant sending you soma poet cards of some of the
roads and places I go with my car. I go to Denver and
Pueblo, nearly every week with passengers. Every one
wants to ride in my car because It rides u easy. It Is na
trouble for me to get a bunoh of ladles for a Joy ride, which
1 do quite often. The tourist season Is over now, but I have
all I can do hauling people that live here. I have never
had any work done on the engine and have never had all

and valves if I can get a chance. I have earned half the
price of the car this summer and fall and she la still run
ning a good as ever. 1 am sending you a photo of my
self and a load of Oklahoma people In the Garden of tne
Gods. That Is a hard drive to rnuite, but I have been there
dozens of times
I will say this of the Midland car It beats them all
for the price of two thouaand dollars and under, and some
of the higher priced cars for power and endurance, and
I know I will never want any other.
I have to go to Illinois next May and have decided
to come through in my car, and you can see how It has
