certain duties does not mean that they
should have personally to perform
such duties, as long as they period

tende'd in-tende'd to own one. Every price reduction we make enlarges the field. Our
popular car was $695 about a year ago when we cut it $40. This year we cut
it $60, making the price $595, and every cut we are able to make will increase

The broadening character of the automobile industry is shown by the fact
that while Ford aud Maxwell are reducing prices, several higher-priced cars
are advancing their prices and cars of limited output and of super-excellence
in individualized construction and finish are contemplating radical advances.
The highest-priced car in the future will be more than ten times and pos possibly
sibly possibly more than twelve times the price of either the Ford or Maxwell.
; We class these two cars together because they are substantially at the
same price when the accessories, such as electric starter, demountable rims,
speedometer, etc., are added to the price of a Ford or deducted from the price
of a Maxwell, yet the Maxwell is a largertype of car, more artistic in appear appearance
