ruffled the feelinr* of Mr. Ebeltoft,
when the bookstore sage it no* equal

This week Mr. Ebeltoft was discussing
absent-mindedness and took occasion
to illustrate his view by telling of an
incident that happened years ago to
Dr. Jeter, brillian, but absent-mind
'-d editor of a well kr.own church mag
azine in Richmond, Va... Dr. Jeter In
; one of hi* off moment# dropped :r at
the postoffice for his mail, and as it

“Good rr.iornlr.jj Dr. Jeter.” and per

"Jeter. Jeter, V«. that's it, Jeter.”

CHAS. HOEY, Popdiar Hudson-Essex Dealer.
Tlie conception of the artiMt who nketflfffd Chan iWy above as a “courting man’’ doesn’t mean
that Chas. confines his “courting” to the “gals.” He courts automobile prospects; with the same
vigor that he does his social duties and while he might be “wrapped up” at times in his social en
deavors, he is always “wrapped up” in Hudson-Essex. Four years ago he took the Hudson-Essex
agency and has met with remarkable success. He lias a beautiful show room on S. Washington
street and renders up-to-date service to owners of these well known cars. The factory has a daily
out-put of 1,500 cars and many claim that they are the best cars on the market for the money.
The Essex is the lowest priced six cylinder closed job in the world. Ninety seven per cent of the
Hudson-Essex out-put are closed cars which indicate the rapid change in the demand of cars used
for closed vehicles.
Charles is the second son of Hon. and Mrs. Clyde K. Hoev. He graduated from the Shelby
High School and later went to N. C. State, Raleigh. Having a decided mechanical turn his first
work was as an auto mechanic. Soon he became “boss.” G. C. Self is his popular office helper
while J. T. McGinnis-and P. E. Turner function as mechanics in a most satisfactory manner with
the assistance of two “chocolate drops.”
Charles always wears a happy smile, smokes a pipe like Vice President Dawes but refuses to
follow Dawes in his profanity. He indulges in a hearty contagious laugh now and then and his
smile always broadens when he looks up and down the avenues and sees hundreds of Hudson-Essex
carp driven by satisfied users.
“Service” is not only the motto of the Hoey Motor Company but “service is our business’ ’ns
l Chas would say.
He is 23 and unmarried but has fine prospects of matrimony.
