EACH NOW BRINGS OWN
JELLY: THERE'S A REASON
Nearly every woman on the job at the

yesterday. And as usual, there's a rea

City commissioners decided to start a
city hall relief fund and employes as well

asked to contribute as they may be able
to afford It. The engineering and the
fire and water departments were hard

of the department of fire protection and

employes of the other departments suf

Can the Carter Car arise to the position
of highest sales in its price class in this
territory, in the face of the united opposi
tion of forty-two dealers selling gear cars,
without it being satisfactory and right ?
i . I..:,
(BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY)
W. E. F0SHIE$, President
OARTERCAR NEB. CO'.
Omaha, Neb., March 20, 1913.
Before I organized the Cartei'car Nebraska Company I went
thoroughly into the ear's merits. J examined Cartercars that had
been in service five or six years. I liked it, but I didn't stop there.
I investigated other cars besides those that 1 had owned and went
thoroughly into tho merits of tlie gear car. I went from one car lo
another and still another. .1 soon saw that they were the same. The
principle was the same, the essentials of one were practically .the
tlie best parts of another. The distinguishing principle in each was
a minqr feature all of them had gears. They did not deny that it
was possible for these gears to. strip. Indeed, they said that there
never was a car with gears that did not strip in time. This, how
ever, was not a bad thiug; in a day's time new gears could be put in
audi new gears did not cost more than $8 io $26 apiece. I went back
to the Cartercar and examined it again. It looked good. It looked
better after 1 had seen the gear cars. It was as simple as an old
shoe. There were no gears to strip. I was not a machinist, but I
understood it at once; my little (laughter could drive it.
"Now what is there about this car as bad as stripping gears?"
asked, for that feature struck me as pretty bad. It required a ma
chinist to replace gears while the car was laid up a day or more
after their arrival. No novice could do it, not one man in a hundred
would think of undertaking it. It's the most intricate construc
tion, just as I found all gear cars. . It's the inherent weakness of this
type. Here is the machinist's reply: "There is nothing about the
mechanism of the Cartercar which puts it in the class of the gear
cars. Instead of gears, it has a bronze alloy, disc upon which revolves a
fibre-filled wheel. That is how simple' it is. Under" normal condi
tions of wear it will last many thousands of miles and costs less to
replace than it does to keep oil in the gear case of tho other type
car. Tlie bronze face of the disc does not-over wear out and is posi-
tivly guaranteed during tho entire life of the car. It will, without
difficulty or injury, climb a grade that a gear car cnnnot...makc."
Jn two years which have followed this conversation I have lived
through the truthfulness of it; there is not a 'mis-statement in it.
What that engineer said is demonstrated every day. Tlie principle
of tho friction drive is tho correctprinciplo of n self-propelled ma
chine. Friction-drive cuts would be as coramonas gear cars if. thoy
wero not protected by patents covering tho basic principles of ap
plication upon which the very success of this typo of drive rests.
Our competitors nro very, naturally a unit in opposing tho growth
of this car which is so rapidly supplanting the old type of slicing
gear machines. Their very existence depends upon their successful
opposition and they will niislead you if possible: Tho friction
drive is n positive success in practically every lino of mochnnical
trade, so how could it bo otherwise in tho higher price construction
that enters into an automobile! You will have to admit, at least,
that tho Cartercar friction drive is either a failure or a success. We
can offer tho testimony of every man who over bought a. Cartercar
that it is oven more thnn we claim for it. Lot those who .try to
poison your minds toward this friction drive answer this: If .the
Cartercar is not in every way superior to cars of other type, how
has it been possible for the Cartercar Nebraska Company, in the face
of tho united opposition of forty-two other, dealers,.in ear-Uriyei
cars and their many sub-agents to grow more "rapidly in volume of
business secured than any company that has ever engaged -in the
automobilo business for tho same period in this territory? If the
Cartercar is not in every wal all that wo claim for .it, how can wo,
as we do, enjoy the loyal support of every one of the hundreds of
buyers to whom we have sold these cars. ' "
W. E. FOSHtKR, i; ;
President Cartcrfcar Nebraska Co.
You owe it to yourself and to your bank account to make an investigation of the Cartercar.
Here is one vital point of superiority'
Compare These Transmissions
The Oartarcar friction transmission,
with chain-in-oil drive, is not subject
to the many griefs and ills of the
ordinary gear transmission. It is
eliminates clutch, universal joints and
bevel gear drive. There are just two
principal working units. The extremo
simplicity carries with it great econ
omy. The Cartercar glides away like
an aeroplane, without a sound or a jar.
The old-fashioned sliding gear
transmission is extravagant in con
struction, expensive in maintenance
and untrustworthy in performance. It
. limits its user generally to three for
ward speeds, costs as much for lubri
cation, with the necessary clutch and
univsrsal joints, as the entire up-keep
of the Cartercar Friction Drive, and
is much more noisy.
