An old Maxwell car of the 1904 vintage is being displayed at the Hines implement store this week. It belongs to Wayne Alexander near Mentone and he loaned it to Mr. Hines. It was driven to North Manchester on its own power Wednesday although it took all the power in low speed to go up the hill at the Mrs. Lester Williams farm, west of North Manchester. It has a two cylinder motor, is steered from the right side, high wind shield with brace rods in front, and generally recalls the days when an automobile was a sight to behold and when many horses almost jumped out of their skins when one approached. Mr. Alexander has had the car for a number of years, but its exact history is not known. The car is painted a bright red.
