Convenient to the  meaters,Cluhs,Sficps  Mianaaement (fames,  DEMAND GROWING  FOR TRUXTUN  UNITS  Truck Attachment  Finding  Good Sale  Throughout the   Province  Says  R. E. Black of Black Bros. Ltd.  "The demand for trucks and truck  attachments is growing day by day,"  says R. B. Black of Black Bros., L,td.,  distributors of Truxtun units. "By using the Truxtun unit a used car can  be transformed into 1 1-4 or a 2-ton  truck in a short time at low cost.  These trucks are selling rapidly all  over the province and the demand is  increasing.  "The sizing up of the possibilities of  the motor truck field by automobile  dealers has developed a keen interest  on their part in the motor truck conversion which in addition to affording  a motor truck on unquestioned quality and ability has helped them to a  solution of the used car problem.  "The average used car in stock is  in good mechanical condition and the  power plant is ready to deliver long  hard service in truck work. The turning of the used car into a motor truck  offers an immediate chance to keep the  used car stock moving and also to  meet the demand of the buyer of the  truck of a delivery equipment that will  give him satisfactory service."  DRIVER SHOULD  KNOW ALL ABOUT  TRUCK   UTILIZED  i   "To insure   economical operation as  =      well as    unterrupted    service,   truck-  owners should encourage their drivers  to become familiar with the general  construction of the trucks they operate," says W. L. Hughson of the Kissel  Kar.  "While recently talking to the superintendent of a truck repair shop, I  was informed that the general run of  repairs that have shown up lately were  made by careless handling of the  equipment due particularly to ignorance of the fine points of truck driving  on the part of new drivers.  "A man has many things to learn to  make him a good truck driver, even if  he has previously driven a passenger  car. In commercial use, the driver's  attention to detail is even more essential than in passenger vehicles where  i    t  the strains are not so heavy.  "Most every manufacturer of motor  trucks issues instruction books as well  as other descriptive literature so that  drivers can give the proper attention  to the care and operation of the  trucks. If drivers would carefully  get the points laid down in these books  they would increase their efficiency as  well as get better service from their  trucks."  TRUCK TRAFFIC ON THE LINCOLN  No less than 385 motor trucks wene  counted passing over the Lincoln highway, bridge on the Passlac river at  Newark, N.' J., in an hour recently.  The daily tonnage over the bridge  averages 10,000 tons.  MINING.  For the first time this „ year the.  Standard mine, of Silverton, is on  the current * week's ore list, to Trail,  having sent 131 tons.  This week's report of over 14,000  tons of ore received by the .Trail  smelter, is the largest yet recorded  this year.  y  We have  been appointed local agents  for TRUXTUN units  and are prepared to deliver these highly efficient  trucks on very short- notice.  Phone or write us in regard to  your hauling requirements. We  will give you our co-operation  both before and after you become a TRUXTUN owner.  TJELP untie it! Help yourself;  XTl |your city, your country. Help  win the war!  Turn pleasure cars into motor trucks  with the TRUXTUN Unit and haul  your short-distance freight, N Leave  the railroads free for long hauls.  There are thousands of second-hand pleasure cars with first-class engines.  We can make practically any of them into a truck at once.  And it will be a real truck, with internal gear, axle-drive, the same as used  on 90% of the very highest-priced trucks.  A TRUXTUN will do the work of three teams and keep right at it in all  kinds of weather.  Think of multiplying your delivery facilities by three in these times of  labor shortage!
