Columbia Merchants Say
Price of Gasoline Will Go
Higher Now 25 Cents.
550 CARS IN THE CITY
! J. W. West Bought First Ma
chine, a 1-Cylinder Olds
mobile, 13 Years Ago.
In 1904 the first automobile made
its debut in Columbia, but it is a far
cry from that one-cylinder Oldsmo
bile owned by J. W. West to the
large, heavy, twelve-cylinder variety
which Is now no uncommon sight
here. Until a short time ago that
primitive machine, with its old steer
ing lever and typical up-in-the-air
appearance, remained standing in
one of the streets down which it had
once chugged in brand-new glory.
But the old order changeth in au
tomobiles as in clothes or customs.
Thus we of today are not satisfied
merely with a means of conveyance;
we demand the maximum of speed,
perfection of line and detail, a num
ber of luxurious fittings and ample
room for family, friends and luggage
on cross-country tours.
It has been estimated that there
are about 550 automobiles in Colum
bia now, including twenty trucks.
One-tenth of the cars, perhaps, are

tious car in town is a $5,000 White.
Although the touring car body Is,
and probably will remain, the gen
eral favorite in style, the roadster,
especially the chummy model, Is rap
idly gaining in popularity.
The proprietor of one of the town's
six garages says that to the present
time the war has not at all affected
the local automobile trade. His busi
ness has increased steadily in the last
three years, and in this length of
time he has sold more cars than In
the ten previous years in which cars
were sold here. Another garage own
er believes that his sales In Novem
ber of 1917 show an increase of 50
per cent over those of November of
last year. A third manager Is sat-, to tend to his own business. The

go still higher, say the men who sell
it, this increase has not tended to
discourage the further purchase of
machines in Columbia.
About fifteen students In the Unl-1

probably a good many women would
be well qua'ified as war-ambulance
drivers in France should they be
called upon to give up driving for
pleasure at home.

ABOVE CLOUDS TTITH CAPRONI
Dr. Jenkins Describes Hide With
Famous Italian Airman.
"The sensation of riding In an air
plane is much like that experienced
when you ride in a roller-coaster at
the amusement park," said Dr. Bur
ris A. Jenkins of Kansas City, who
lectured here Tuesday.
In an interview last night. Doctor
Jenkins told of his airplane flight
over the city of Milan with Capronl,
the Italian aviator "the ablest air
man in Southern Europe," as Doctor
Jenkins put it.
"Besides having on woolen under
wear," he said, "I wore a heavy win
ter suit, over that a suit of overalls
and a fur coat on top of that. I put
on a knitted helmet which fitted
closely and left only an opening for
my eyes and nose; a pair of goggles
lined with fur and a high leather
helmet over all.
"By that time the engine was roar
ing so loudly that I could hardly hear
myself think. I climbed Into the ma
chine, but, much to my surprise, I
found that I could not sit down be
cause of my stiff knee. Caproni saw
my difficulty and motioned for me to
climb In back of him between two
gasoline tanks. Here I stood holding
to two uprights, ready to start.
"We went bumping down the field,
turned around and started back to
ward the airdrome, put on more
speed and, just as it seemed as if we
would knock the spots out of the
building, the machine gracefully
cleared the structure. I could not
tell when we left the earth, except
that I no longer felt the bumping of
the wheels on the ground. I felt as
if I were in a denatured, ethereal
"We sailed into the sky and, when
up a couple of thousand feet, without
warning, Caproni 'banked' to the left.
I was almost thrown out, but I was
wo'I braced when he tried it again.
"When we attained a height of
6,000 feet, Milan was below us, but
I could not distinguish the famous
cathedral from any of the other
Duuumgs, ana me roaas scemea line
Motor cars appeared
"The aviator then looked back and
made motions to show me the record
of height on the instrument and that

rate, but righted when a few hundred

started and we sailed over the fields.

finally landing gracefully in front of

Old Prison Will Give Way to Institu

Sing Sing prison, which, for ninety-odd
years, has stood as a terror to

"The lowering of the first block of
stone." said James M. Carter, super
intendent of state prisons, "was a bit
of tangible, evident, concrete prison
reform," and George W. Wickersham
former Attorney-General of the Unit
ed States, added that "it meant not

but of a new thought and a new tol-

The cell-block at Sing Sing, built in
1S25-30, was designed to fit the fol

reported by a committee of the senate:
"To make an impression upon the
minds of either conviots or the public,
there must be suffering (on the part
of the- inmates) ; and to make any ade
quate impression, such suffering as
will excite feelings of terror."
The new thought Is contrary to the

and classifying them on the basis of
their mental characteristics, physical
