Several Four-Day Automobile Trips Planned for Washington Motor Car Owners
THE WASHINGTON TIMES, SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1912.
FOUR TRIPS ARE
PLANNED JULY 4
Some Delightful Week-End
Journeys Outlined for the
This year the first week In July offers
one of the best opportunities for a
week-end vacation,, the national holi
day coming on Thursday, permitting a
four-day outlnp and getting back to the
office again. Monday morning.
When the opportunity for the week
end tour arrives, almost the tlrst ques
tion asked Is, "Where shall we go?"
Delightful as Washington, with ItSj Im
mediate environs. Is from a motoring
standpoint, due to the smooth Btreeta
and highways, the tourist, once out of
eight of the Capitol, does not encounter
roads which are overly attractive and
runs of two, thiee, or four days must
needs be selected with much care.
Tour No. 1 has Staunton, Va., as its
objective point, and Includes much ter
ritory over which the Federal and Con
federate armies fought valiantly during
the rebellion. The first day's trip Is to
Gettysburg, 79.5 miles, via Fredeilck,
46.6 miles, and Emmlttsburg. 68.5 miles.
The. second day takes the tourists
Across the glorious Blue Ridge by way of
Buena Vista and Pen" Mar, 20 to 25 miles,
to Hagerstown, G5 miles. This route
may be varied by returning via Em
mlttsburg, although the mountain trip
is by far the more scenic. The third
day sees the tourist bowling down the
famed Shenandoah valley to Staunton,
135.2 miles, stopping en route at his
toric Winchester, 42 miles. On the
fourth day the return trip to Washing
ton would cover 163.1 miles, driving
down the valley to Winchester and
then across to the Capital.
Tour No. 2 covers some of the same
ground, having that shrine of Ameri
can patriotism, the Gettysburg battle
field, as one of its chief attractions.
The first day'B route would Include Bal
timore, Havre de Grace, Bel Air, and
Towson, tile latter the night utop. The
next day's ride will take the tourlstb
up Into the beautiful Cumberland valley
to Gettysburg via York, and then on to
Hagerstown. The third day's Journey
will Include an easy ride through Win-
Operates Speed Trap.
If you are going to New York by
motor car via Philadelphia and
Trenton, paste this In your hat:

No New Everitt Models
In connection with the recent changes
in the. fortunes of the Everitt Motor
Cor Company, through the alliance of
what Is known In automobile trade cir
cles as the Flanders group, many weird
tales havo been circulated, some of
which were truo and others which have
been mischievous In their effect.
In speaking of this. Sales Manager
Paul Smith, of the Everitt company,
"No little consternation has been
caused by the report that now Everitt
models were to come out within a short
tlmo to take the place of tho present

denial of this. No new models are con
templated nor any changes even In the
slightest will bo mndc, either In the me
chanical features, prices, or In any
other way. No other cars enjoy greater
popularity than the Everitt 30"h and .V.'s,
and they have proven so uniformly
satisfactory to buyers that our engi
neers could find no opportunity for Im
provement. Therefore, no logical rea
son for any change save such little per
fections as have recently been mado
nnd are embodied In the cars now be
"The advent of the Flanders group in

designed and built, giving the best of service.
Every Studebaker "20" body gets 17
coats of paint and varnish, which xrr prop
erly rubbed and aged. If you take care of
your car, your Studebaker body will equal
any automobile body on the market.
These are some obvious points which
show the car's value.
But the deeper you go into the design
and manufacture of the Studebaker "20" the
better you will like it. We watch every de
tail. Every Studebaker "20" is built not only
for the first mile but for the 20,000th mile.
In those qualities which make for endurance
and lasting satisfaction, the Studebaker "20"

SKIN ON HAND
IN DEEP CRACKS
Bled and Very Painful, Would Throb
and Burn. Could Not Sleep. Hand
Swollen and Stiff. Used Box of
Cuticura Ointment with Cuticura
Soap. Hand Well, Cracks Healed.
Litchfield, Me. "About a year ago I
began to hare trouble vrlth my right hand.
The whole inilde of the hand began to crack.
The akin was dry, thick and hard and then
broke out In deep cracks which bled and
were very painful. They would throb and
pain 'me, and burn so that I could net sleep
nights. The flesh was a peculiar red color
and the hand was swollen and felt stiff.
"For six months I tried a great many
different remedies, but none of them did any
good. Finally I commenced using Cuticura
Boap and Cuticura Ointment. From the very
tart I found it was helping me. The cracks
soon began to heal and before I had used
one box of the Cuticura Ointment, together
with the Cuticura Soap, my hand was well,
the cracks all healed, and the skin soft as
before the trouble began. Six months havo
passed and I have had no return." (Signed)

In a woek I saw a great change in my face,
