upon the cleaning business it was de

The Apperson Jack Auto company,

A large shop and work room is a part

Several new service ' features will be
added now that the new location Is occu-
bee. Then, too, Dreshers have twice
extended their building since the In
ception of the business. A rough es
timate places the Dresher working
spare and office at 12,000 square
feet, and even now Dreshers are plan

Quite a jump from the time when
"Al" Dresher himself occasionally
delivered cleaning work assisted by
one little "jailer" horse and a single
dinky little wagon. Isn't It?
Think of tuch a growth in a period
of time that covers but a little over
four years. Wonderful. Isn't It? Must
be that Dreshers turn out a far bet

Dreshers were the first to really

Dreshers are today and every day

in work freely by parcel post or ex

will pay the return charges on any

Dreshers can prove by shipping books
that their work has already been sent

Your Model Car
At an Unexpected Price
The HUDSON Six-40 for 1915 brings out 32 sur
prises. There are 31 new features each an important
refinement. And there is a new price $200 less than
last year due to a trebled output.
This new-type Six came out last year to mark the
HUDSON conception of the coming car. The HUD
SON Engineers headed by Howard E. Coffinhad
devoted three years to tho model.
By clever designing and btrlter materials they at
tained a remarkable lightness. By a now-type motor
they reduced operative cost about 30 per cent under
former cars of like capacity.
It was the handsomest car of the year.
It offered many new ideas in equipment.
And the price $1 ,7.r0 was the lowest price
quoted on a quality car, either Fours or Sixes. That
car was so welcome that the enormous factory output
was 3,000 cars oversold.
Now these same engineers iS of them have
spent a whole year on refinements. The new model
for 1915 with 31 important improvements.
The output has been trebled. And the quantity
saving $200 per car has been taken from tho price.
Now this quality Six the finest HUDSON pro
duction sells for $1,550 f. o. b. Detroit.
This new HUDSON Six-40 will meet your ideals of
a car. There was never built at any price a morn ex
quisite Six. It will place any four-cylinder car out of
the question at a price above $1,200.
This new model is here now. Don't buy until you
