The Central avenue ball llelil was the scene of a big battle last Monday Bfternoon when the local high school team met the Hanover boys for the championship of Morris county, and were nosed hy a si'oro of 7 to C. Uoth schools have exceptionally strong nines this year and had mode splendid records against opponents Each team had lost hut two games previously and had split even In their former meetings, as Hanover took the first game on Madison field by a score of 6 to B early In the season while Madison triumphed at Hanover by a 9 to 8 score two weeks ago. Captain Coffey won the toss and took the field with Courson. Hanover's star twirler, occupying the mound. "Bill" O'Donnell was on the Bring line for the locals anil a great pitchers' battle followed. In the opening half of the first round Courson quickly fanned Waters and Burroughs while Blazler died stealing after reaching first on a pass Hanover jumped Into the lead In their half of the tlrst by scoring a run Do Hart's error and " Bill " I^vtck's solid single. O'Donnell prevented further scoring by whlfllng Clauson. Madison came hack strong In the next and scored three tallies on singles by O'Donnell, Early, De Hart and Van Duzer assisted by Dickson's wild throw to the plate. Things looked had for the visiting boys but only for a short time as they quickly tied the score in the third. Courson, W. I^v- Ick, I-owrle and Clauson hit safely In this round and two runners came across the rubber making the score tie at three all. Both pitchers held the batters at their mercy until the sixth, when Madison took the lead again. In this Inning, N. Hill's hard drive scored O'Donnell and Early, who had previously been safe on Coffey's error and Courson's liberality respectively; but the lead was short-lived, as La- Hart's hit drove home I^owrle and Clauson In the latter half of tJie same frame. Hits by Burroughs and H. Hill with Dickson's second error again put Madison ahead In the next. A pass to Courson, followed by "Bill" Levlck's third hit and Coffey's sacritlce lly to Van l)U7er, tied the score In Hanover's half. The final tally and what proved to be the winning run was scored by Hanover In the eighth cm Waters* error followed by Dickson's two-bagger to left center. An error by Burroughs followed by a safe hunt loaded the sacks In this round but MacDougall, pitching for Madison, fanned the mighty Levick after causing Courson to "pop" a weak fly to Early. With one run needed to tie the score in the last round. Van Duzer first batter up. singled. Waters' sacrifice put him on second and a daring steal landed him on third, but Courson put on extra steam and fanned Blazler and Burroughs. The game was hard-fought but not brilliantly played. W. Levick was easily the star for Hanover l)Oth at bat and on defence. Lindstrom, Courson. 11. Hill and Burroughs put up good fielding games. Van Duzer and Clauson each made two safeties. This game gave Hanover an undisputed claim to the championship of the county as Madison and Hanover had eliminated all other possible claimants. The score was as follows: MADISt)N H.

Impossible To Get So Much Motor Car Value For The Money W E FIND dm b the attitude of many people who come into oai talesroom— before tbey know anything about the MaweH Not until the Maxwell is shown and demon- ctrated to them—until they lit in it and examine the finish—until they ride in it—or perhaps not until they drive it themselves, do they realize what a tremendous value is offered in the Maxwell car. It is not untisual that Maxwefl value should not be known to everyone, because it is uncommon to find soch a car for a good margin more than the Maxwefl price. The Maxwell stands ahsohitely alone in a highly competitive field, for the amount of value it offers for the price. Appearance —The lines of the Maxwefl are deddedy attractive. There is no break in the contour from the radiator to the back of the car. The fmders are gracefufly shaped. Afl metal parts ate enameled or nickel-plated. The upholstery b deep and well-finished. From any angle it is a car that the owner can be proud of. Motor —The engine in the Mzuiwefl car is not equafled by any other four-cylinder engine of its size. And we know of larger and more expensive cars that have less able power plants. The Max- wefl engine carries its load through mud and sapd or over the steepest grades without a falter. Quality —The materials in the Maxwefl car are the best that can be bought and the workmanship that turns them into finished peirts is no less exceflent It is only the large production of tho MiunvcP. f{u:tories that makes it possible to put such quality of materials and workmanship into a car selling at the Maxwell price. Economy —With its other attractive features, the Maxwell is a most economical car to own. Owners get 22 to 25 mUes per gaflon of gasoline and 8,000 to 12,000 miles per set of tires. And the car is so durably built that repair expense is negligible. We are sure you want a car such as we have described ttie Maxwell to be. If you will give us a few minutes of your time we are sure we can convince you that the Maxwell Car is an exceptional value. Come in today. Touring Car $655 Roadster $635 F, O. a DETROIT DAVID S.
