Automotive news

B.E. Murray, popular automobile agent of Warrensburgh, has a brand new 22 h.p. 1912 Metz for sale that he has recently brought from the factory in Waltham, Mass. It is a two-seat convertible with a rumble seat and will run 32 miles on a gallon of gasoline. The price is $495.

In other news, owing to the increased expense of operation on account of the change from a horse-drawn stage to an automobile, the Warrensburgh-Thurman stage finds it necessary to increase the fare from 35 cents to 40 cents. The greater comfort of the passengers should more than compensate for the additional charge.
