This is an original 1909 1 page article featuring three pieces, "The Cure of Equine Motorphobia", by C. O. Morris, "Automobile Expense", by Alfred Williamson, and "The Danger of Fire in the Garage", by John Guthrie. The articles sway the reader into purchasing an automobile by explaining common misconceptions and hesitations. For instance, "The conclusion is that the automobile, when housed and cared for by the owner, is the cheapest form of amusement purchasable". The article also features an image of a horse standing next to an automobile with the caption, "The best way to make a horse immune to automobile fright is to accustom him to motors when a colt; even old horses can be taught with patience".
