first to reach the scene. These fire
men found the fir had started at the
loot of the freight elevator shaft In the
north half of the building, and had
spread rapidly upwards, until every
floor bad been caught, and the upper
floors were already burning fiercely.
Flames soon broke out of the upper win

the spot almost as soon as the men,
realised the serious nature of his task.
He bad a general alarm turned In, call

the No. I men to leava the dangerous
place they were In. While they were
dragging out the hose, the celling fell,

Sixth Season for Lozier Six
For five years Lozier has been building high
powered six-cylinder cars the most successful
"Sixes" ever built The Lozier six has won
more 24-hour races than any other car. It holds
and has held for three years, the world's 24-hour
stock car record.
The remarkable power, the persistent endur
ance, the brilliant speed of the Lozier are written
into the history of the great racing classics of
America Vanderbilt cup, International Grand
Prize, Elgin National Championship, Fairmount
Park, Santa Monica, Indianapolis and Atlanta
Speedways, and the famous Brighton Beach
24-hour races, .
Unparalleled performances in these great con
tests, publicly conducted under official sanction
and observation, mark the Lozier as the
"Champjon Motor Car of the World." None
of these achievements of the Lozier is founded
upon private trials or mere assertions all were
won before hundreds of thousands of America's
motoring enthusiasts all are officially recorded,
1913 Lozier the Greatest
Splendid as have been the Loziers of the past,
the 1913, Six-Cylinder, Type 72 presents a distinct
and marked advance. It is the greatest motor
car ever built by the House of Lozier and
Men Who Know" will tell you that means the
greatest motor car ever built.
No other car offers sucn a remarkable com
bination of desirable features features which
will not be found combined in any other motor
car for several years to come.
Left-Hand Drive is a distinct step in the
evolution of the motor car in America. It is as
sure to become standard on all automobiles as
have six-cylinder motors on high-class cars.
Center Control logically follows left-hand
drive. Fore-door body design makes it a nec
essity. The control levers of the Type 72 Lozier
are m convenient position for the driver, yet
entirely out of the way of occupants of both
Lozier Automatic-Level Oiling System is
one of the greatest achievements of the Lozier
engineers in recent years. High oil level at high
speeds low oil level at low speeds a smokeless
exhaust at all speeds. Valves free from carbon.
Perfect lubrication and marvelous efficiency
300 to 400 miles to the gallon.
Triple Ignition is another forward step in
design learned from our racing experience.
The 1913 Lozier is fitted with Bosch Double
Magneto which gives, when desired, two sparks
simultaneously m each cylinder, providing a
remarkable increase in power. This magneto,
with the battery, provides three distinct sources

This is one of the big reasons for the wonderful

life of Lozier cars.
See the new model when it arrives. Arrange for a demonstration and
you will learn the reason why hundreds of America's big men men who
have owned many makes of cars before buying the Lozier "Men Who
