The Purchase of a Saxon
Insures Riding Satisfaction
Saxon cars are today generally recognized as
the best cars in their price classes.
Their greater value has been definitely and
decisively established by their performance
records in the hands of thousands of owners in
all parts of the country.
The Saxon Motor Car Corporation has earned
one of the biggest successes in the automobilfe
industry. It owes its success to the policy of
building good cars and building them in quan-
tities. Its cars have won the respect of the
motor buying public.
Such absolute satisfaction as is represented in
the following testimonial i« the big reason back
of Saxon success:
•'I want to say that Saxon 'Sis* is an
bile H.U will do Saxon Motor Car Cor*
poration claims i will do and more.
^We have driven our car many thousand
n iles and can honestly say it is the easiest
riding car we ever rode In.

well Identified, are from Indiana, one
from the Fifty-ninth Infantry of that
state 83% Inches, while one from the
Twenty-sixth Missouri Infantry was
84% inches iu height—more than seven

plete und unimpeachable, was Lieu-
