The Chicago City Railway is testing the Car Starter and is very pleased with it. It will be given a very thorough trial and if it proves to be what it claims to be they will put it on the cars. He has bargained for a house and lot. The house is to be finished so they can take possession by the first of June – price $3,200.00; $500.00 down and the rest in monthly payments of $25.00.
