A Chalmers Starts and Runs

O many cars run well in June, and not in
December. Most prefer the warm weather.
A Chalmers starts on a cold day almost
instantly on account of its Hot Spot and Ram's Ram's-horn,

Hot Spot vaporizes the raw gas "to a fine cloud,"
warms it up, and Ram's-horn dispatches it evenly,
quickly, scientifically to all six cylinders.
They render a magnificent service in over overcoming
coming overcoming vibration, which is the origin of 90 of
the troubles in a motor car.
That is why a Chalmers of today runs so many

Government's 8tickers for One Year'
Use Would Make Strip 763,220
Until within very recent years all
of our postage stamps were printed
for the government by a private con
cern under contract by the year. Now Nowadays
adays Nowadays they are turned out at the big
factory In Washington that makes
Uncle Sam's paper money.
The work Is better done and at a
great saving. There Is a saving in Ink
(which Is made on the premises) ;
there Is saving in gum (likewise of
home manufacture), and there is sav
ing of the profit that formerly went
to the contractor.
It Is a huge Job. During the last
year the bureau of engraving printed
80.000,000,000 postage stamps. That
(approximately) was the number re
quired by the 110,000,000 people of the
United States for mailing letters and
parcels an average of 454 stamps for
every man, woman and child.
If all these 50,000.000,000 stamps
were placed end to end in one strip.

mall calculation will show.

To nkake that number of postage
stamps requires 1,750 tous of ink aud
2.125 tons of gum.
