HERE is a car destined for leader
ship in 1913. The new unit
gasoline and electric motor is
bound to give it first place.
The 1912 Cross Country was a pop
ular success. Big sales prove that. One
hundred and five per cent--our increase
. for the year is a record.
Gasoline and Electric Motor
( .Think what this new motor means.
vf It combines two widely used and thor-'
oughly known power principles; one,
in the perfected Cross Country gasoline
engine; the other, in the commonly used
electric motor generator. ,
Now you don't have to get out of
your car to start or to light the lamps.
Press the button you start ,
Press another you light the lamps,
i Read the explanation. Then see this
new motor. The idea is so simple the
results so pleasing you will wonder why
it has not been done before.
This gasoline-electric motor consists
of a single unit, combining a 38-horse
power, four-cylinder gasoline engine with
an electric motor generator.
. There is no need for a separate start
ing device. .
From the instant you press the start -.
ing button this electric motor generator
is creating and storing electric energy
for future use,
The usual cast iron fly wheel of an
ordinary engine is left off.
Noiseless and Simple
The parts forming the electric motor
generator take the place of the fly wheel.
It saves weight, bearings, chains,
gears, complicated wiring, and operates
as silently as any electric motor.
The only wearing parts, other than
those of all gasoline ' engines," are the
motor generator brushes which are six
times the necessary size ample for
many times the life of the car.
Except to put water in the batteries
it requires no attention.
Ten Inch Upholstery
The Cross Country in appearance had
no equal. '
In comfort we thought we had reached
the lirnit but now we have added ten
inch upholstery. Of power it has suffi
cient for every emergency. .
It's so flexible you can travel on high
gear no faster than a man usually walks,
or fifty miles an hour.
To steer is but to touch the wheel.
It guides so easily, you are conscious of
no effort Experienced motorists in
stantly appreciate this advantage.

tion, vouched for by our ten thousand
