Auto Sleds Attra& Nebraska Inventors
For the first time sine th automobile
a become a familiar article of dally lit
Nebraska has had enough snow thl wia-
' te provide good sleighing, aad this
ha bad the effect of stimulating the in
ventors of the state. Almost at the earn
tim ta two different (own th gasoline
motor of the auto and the' propeller of
the svrophui have been hitched together
for the purpose of driving the sled, and
In each Instance th Inventor hear
claimed originality for tha idea. Messrs.
Harrison and Held of Grand Inland built a
sled and an it mounted aa engine to drive
a propeller, and a newspaper account of
the machine says it has attained a speed
approximating fifty miles an hour along
the streets of that city. At Randolph
Messrs. Thorndlk and Hamblln have ac-
complished some satisfactory result with
a aled almltarly equipped. Hill climbing
haa not yet beta mastered by th wind-
driven sled, but tb inventor hope to
overcome this, and when the result baa
been achieved It I proposed that th In
vention snail he token to Alaska and
ther put to us to displace th doge that
now live service to transportation.
The -Harrison Reld sled, built at
Grand bland. Is thus described by th
"In order to make th sled as light as
posstbl an oak frame waa built, sup
ported by -true rod, and Ford axles were
used, upon which the runners ar
mounted. On this oak tram a thirty
home power Appereon motor was installed
to drive the propeller shaft, which was
mounted on a subirame directly above
the flywheel of tb engine. This propeller
shaft run on roller bearings and was
driven by a belt from the flywheel and
was geared up so ss to obtain a very' high
rate ef speed.
The propeller constructed by the Ham-
son a Held Automobile eompany waa
mad from a solid piece of hickory and
shaped from a diagram ef an aeroplane
propeller. This propeller can be run at
th rat ef !.M revolution per minute.

steering very easy."
Th sensation of a trip around town en
this sled Is thus told by a reporter for
th Grand Island Independent!
"Harrison . Raid this morning picked
up Mayor Ryan, Banker C. C Hansen
and a couple of the newspaper bora and
gave them a touch of high Ufa on their

A Practical Comparison
.y. .This FortyFviJIorsepower Touring Car $1 00;, Equipped with Self-starter, Only $20 Extra
EVERY man likes to make every dollar
he spends go as far as possible. He
won't exchange it for seventy-five cents

offer him an even, dollar's worth for a dollar.

Any automobile manufacturer can talk to
you in a general way about the unheard of value
his car represents. But general statements do
not count for very much. They are meaning,
less. They prove nothing. S I
While most of the advertising writers are
trying to get your attention by flat, general, mis
leading statements in an effort to cover up the
high prices on their cars, we want to talk to
you oa. the sane and practical comparative bssis
ef (acts and figures. , )
When we make the claim that our big forty
five horsepower frr epassenger touring csr at
$1500 is the equal of any $2000 car on the mar
ket, we can prove this to be an actual fact The
better you are acquainted with automobile con
ditiona, cars, prices, specifications, etc; in fact,
the more you know about the automobile indus
try the more yoa will realize this to be true.
. What do cars of this type usually sell for?
You find them for $1700, $1750, $1800 and $2000
and sortie lugher. But why should you psy the
higher price? You will find these higher priced
cars are no better so larger no more power
ful no more comfortable, than this car for
$1500. So why pay Bore ? You will find the
motor no larger the seating capacity no greater
the finish' and appointments no finer. So, if
you get no more, why on earth should you pay
any more ?
" M How can you make a car of this size and
power to aell for $1500 when other makers get
$2000, and more, for cars that are almost iden
tical? "--you ask.
It is possible for the very practical reason
that we are the largest automobile pro
ducers in the business. We mske 25,000 cars
where the average standard maker produces
but 5,000 and less. Having five times the man
ufscturing facilities, we are actually able to pro
duce an automobile at from twenty to thirty
per cent. less cost. And this difference is found
in our price to you.
So much for figures. Now, let's get down
to the specifications, for the specifications repre
sent the real intrinsic value of any automobile.
This car has a powerful forty-five horsepower
motor; the wheel base is one hundred and fif
teen inches, the transmission's selective, three
speeds and reverse, fitted with the F & S annu
lar bearings, which are used on the most expen
sive cars in the world. The gear and crank
casings are of pure aluminum. The control is
in the center. The front axle is a drop forged -I-section
fitted with the fines; Timkeo bearings.
The rear axle is full floating, also fitted with
Thnkens. The frsme is of pressed steel with
a double drop. Tires are 34 z 4. It is equipped
with a Bosch magneto. Body is of dark Brew;
ster .green, ivory striped. All of the bright
parts are heavily nickel plated. Lamps are
finished in black enamel and nickel. If you
wish, we will equip this car with a self-starting
system for only $20 additional. Our starter is
the simplest and safest on the market It starts
the car ninety-nine times out of a hundred and
a child can work it
This brief synopsis of the specifications
gives you the main facts covering this $1500 car.
A car of any other make, with like specifica
tions, cannot be found for less than $20C0.
Right now the Overland is outselling any
other similar car in the world. Would this be
possible if we did not give more car, and a bet
ter car, for less money than any other maker in
the industry ?
' By.all means see this car before you buy.
It surely should not take much to convince you
that the purchase of a car for $1500 which gen
erally sells for $2000 is good business. And we
can prove by a point for point comparison that
our $1500 car is the part for part equal of any
$2000 car in America. It will give you the com
fort, speed, power, sealing capacity, service
Write us, or ask our dealer, for a big free
catalogue, which gives you all the facts and
specifications of not only this car, but the entire
Overland line. You can see this car at once at
