MR S.R. STEDMAN-MOTORS
Truths that are pressed home most forcibly by the present "Great War” arc: (1) That trade within the Empire is practical patriotism, and (2) that when we come to the essence of things there is, and should be, sentiment in business ! To show' that the last-mentioned is a fact which should be recognised, it is only necessary to remind readers that the late Lord Roberts. almost with his last breath, declared “ that little Belgium saved England from invasion ”to satisfy everyone; for, if Belgium industries are upheld by Britishers, thev exhibit not only a laudable sentiment iu <]oing so, but good business just as well. On Mr S. R. Stedipau’s stand at the Summer Show are displayed only British and Belgian cars, among which the most prominent, and perhaps the most admired, are tho British-made Humbers of 14-37 h.p., fitted with electric light, self-starting gear, and all other modern equipments. A 10-25 h.p. from the same manufacturers is also shown. It is claimed for the Humber motor cars that their extreme reliability explains their popularity, standing as they do the wear and tear they are subjected to in tho most difficult motoring countries in the world. An 18-40 h.p. Belgian Minerva, recognised as being one of the greatest cars in the world, is also to be seen on Mr Stedman’s staud, and it attracts, naturally, much attention, not only because of its nationality, but also because of its undoubted beauty of design. Indeed, the "beautiful’’ Minerva is the popular definition of this magnificent specimen of Belgian industry, fitted up as it is with every requirement which the most fastidious motorist may demand.
