That this record will remain" unbroken for some time goes without saying, for the average was something like 43 miles an hour, v The car was checked out of San "Antonio at 6:31 i 20 on the morning of vthe 22d by J. B. Mabry, Texas Good ' Roads association, and finished In 'Dal las at the court house at 1:27 noon of the same day, being checked in by J, C. Welch of the Dallas News. The significant fact about this run was 'that strict attention was paid to the speed limits .in the thirty small and large towns on the rojite. Three stops were made at Austin, Temple and Hlllsboro.

" Honolulu's road 'program for 1918 has been shifted backward and for ward like the sands of the desert and In conversation with many of the lead ing boosters for good ? roads, it: ap pears . that there ia a possibility that there might- not be the improve ments which were -originally' planned. There has been much talk regarding the purchase of the street improve ment, bonds, and this point must be taken' into consideration.' To begin with the: bond issues of the Hotel and Smith street improvements were of fered for sale, some time ago and there wasn't any grand rush forthese. If the bond issues to .come meet the same fate as the first, then there is a great possibility .that there will. not be $500,000 expended on our road ways.

Shepherd of . the tire, ami ac cessory department, received a ship ment of 600 Mich elln casings of the Ford sizes oh one of the steamers from the coast last week. vThe Michelln . casings, on account of their special type of construction in the Ford sizes, give remarkable mileage on these cars. They are" of the flat type and - have extra thick treads where the tire is most subject to wear. ' Out of the hundreds of the Michelln casings' which this -company have sold this" year ; f or Fords, Mr. Shepherd states that only three have been re turned as defective. . some hunting equipment; the fisher man will receive a rod, tackle .or other Izaak Walton instruments, and it stands to reason that the man-who loves to motor, or the girl who loves to drive he car, will also receive a nresent that will be annreclatei).' ht I STUDEDAKER Feaiurcs - DILL DIOEE IMS PROOF THAT HIS TIRES ARE REAL Auto .Service & ; Supply Co Booster Nearly Gets Away With 20o During Ride Bill Bibee o f the Auto Service and Supply Co., one pf the best known tire salesmen In the" city, said the other day that he didn't have to feel back ward while boosting the Goodyear cord tires. ' While . Bill was bowling along one of our well paved streets he very gra ciously, asked the writer it he desired to ride, which was indeed a noble thought After, Bulcking for. three or four blocks ' the writer ..looked at : the little Instrument which; much resem bles a Big Ben: and discovered that It pointed to 6086 which in tha language pt- the motorist ; means .- tnat many miles: , . l. r v , .-. - - . i -. .v-f J. ; That is what I ; have got but pt a Set tit.

Then BUI began to tell the advantages ot the Goodyear. . cords, and Jf Mr. Goodyear .or whoever was responsible for the 1 tires had overheard the ora tion he would have cabled Bill "You're president from now on." If the Good year booster had been selling lead pencils he could have taken the 20 cents which was hiding In one corner of the writer's pocket with ease. Two seconds after Bill ' had finished his talk the writer decided to get out and walk. v Losing 20 cents isn't the nicest thing In the ,world when one. has but two dimes. , He might have disc6vered aomething that Goodyear sold for. 20 cents. ?
