OLDFIELD SETS NEW MARKS.
Makes World's Circular Track Records
for Four Distances.
Ijos Angeles, Jan. 9.— Barney Oldfleld,
driving his Benz racer over the As*?* Park
mile track to-day, broke the world's cir
cular track records for two. three, four
and five miles. His time for the five miles
was 4:24 1-5. The previous record, of 4:26,
was held by Ralph DePalma.
ANSON-M'KAY MATCH PLANNED.
Notwithstanding the showing made by
"William McKay in his match with Frank
Hoppe at Doyle's last week, "Pop" Anson,
of Chicago, is. still, of the opinion that he
is the equal of the veteran. A match has
been arranged to take place at Doyle' 9
ths latter part of this week. Anson will
play there every afternoon at 2:30 clock,
meeting some of the local crack players,
in order to get in shape for the McKay
match, which will be played en Thursday
and Friday.
TRAFFIC MIRROR USED ABROAD.
Perhaps adopting the suggestion of a
British inventor, who not long 6ince pro
posed the installation of mirrors at all
highway crossings, the English town of
Woodbridge, Suffolk. is blessed with just
sucb a safeguard for the traffic about one
of Its narrow street corners. The mirror
is placed in such a way that motorists
and drivers of other vehicles when ap
proaching the danger point are enabled to
ccc the — '"»■ of opposing traffic and
to govern themselves accordingly— Motor
"World.
WHEN TONNEAU DOORS RATTLE.
Tonneau doors which develop an annoy
ing tendency to rattle should not be si
lenced by the tinker's expedient of wedg
ing bits of leather between the door and its
frame. Instead of eliminatlns the evil
tendencj-, this only tends to accentuate It
in the course of time, since it is caused
by the relaxation of some portion of. th«
body framework. Wedgirg-, under the cir
cumstances, only serves to increase the
spread of the parts. Generally speaking,
an expert body maker can remedy the evil
for all time, if given a chance to go to
work before it is too late.
FRONT WHEEL BEARINGS TEST.
"When the front wheels are beins tested
for play in the bearing?, a wedge of some
kind hOLil'i be inserted between the stearins
knuckle and Jaw. so that any lost motion in
the latter, and which usually is present to
a varying degree, will not manifest itself
and cause much unnecessary adjusting be
(ore the true situation is discovered. Some
times the mode of adjustment Is such that
it will not Dermlt the bearings to be ad
justed as finely as is desired, and in such
cases, if there is a choice between a snug
fit and a slight amount of play, the latter
should be given the preference.— Motor
World.
HOSPITAL STAFF MASQUERADES.
The nurses and internes of the Kings
County Hospital held a masquerade ball on
Friday evening in the ballroom of the

LECTURES OX CHESS.
Hodges Talks on Theory and
Practice of the Game.
Mr. Hodges, the former chess champion,
delivered the first of a series of lectures on
'•the game at kings" in Brooklyn en Satur
day.
The first part of ths discourse was de
voted to the history of the ancient pastime
and to a brief levtew of tho leading ex
ponents and masters of chess in modern
times. Though indulged in by all classes,
yet, Mr. Hodges declared, a great many
people were repulsed by the mistaken no
tion that chess was of too abstruse a nat
ure to permit of a knowledge of it being
readily acquired. Then the lecturer passed
on to the educational value of his subject,
quoting: Benjamin Franklin, who saw in it
a ready means cf developing foresight, cir
cumspection, caution and persererancs. and
Professor Huxley, who in his "Lay Essays
on a Liberal Education" refers to the
chessboard as the world, the pieces the
phenomena of the universe and the rules of
the game the laws of nature. Mr. Hodges
then dwelt on the social, moral and ethi
cal side of chess.
According to the lecturer, out of eight
members of college chess clubs competing
in recent university examinations In this
country no fewer than six gained medals
or scholarships. Touching upon the practi
cal side of the game. Mr. Ilodfcs said that
in his opinion the essence of properly con
ducting a game was development, and, sec
ondly, more development. Following the
lecture he gave an exhibition cJ blindfold
play.
MAN SCALDS HIS WIFE.
Throws Contents of Boiling Teapot
Over Her During Quarrel.
Mrs. Annie Roland, of No. 224 East 74th
street, was severely scalded by her hus
band, Tboaaaa, last night, it is charged,
and was taken to Bellevue Hospital. Her
husband hurriedly left the fiat after he
had thrown the boiling contents of a large
teapot over her head, and plainelothes men
of the East 67th street station were sent
cut to look for him.
According to the police, Roland sent his
wife out early last night to get 2o cents'
worth of whiskey. While she was out she
met somf friends and stood to talk for
awhile. When she returned her husband
growled at her for being gone so long and
became abusive. Mrs. Roland walked out
into the Icitc&ea, paying no attention to
her husband. This seemed to enrage him
the more, and he followed her into the
kitchen, and when Mrs. Roland refused to
talk back he picked up the large teapot
that was boiling on the gas range and
threw the contents over his wife's head.
Mrs. Roland gave one scream and sank to
the floor. Neighbors heard her cry out
and did what th*y could for her until the
ambulance came.

Senator Dick Reiterates Charge
Against Barber.
Akron, Ohio, Jan. 9.— Another letter in the
series being written by Senator Charles
Dick and O. C. Barber, head of the match
trust, as the result of Barbers challenge
to Dick to debate the latter's merits as a
United States Senator, was Issued by Sen
ator Dick yesterday. It is addressed to Mr.
Barber and is in part as follows:
I challenge your statement that you are ,
a citizen of New York and demand the
proofs. I charge that you never voted in
that state and that you are no more a
citizen of New York than you are a citizen
of Ohio, and, not being a citizen of any
state, it follows you are not a citizen of
the United States.
The statement that you want to debate
public questions with me 13 disproved by
the vituperation, insinuations, slanders and ■
barrom abuse with which your letters
abound. "What you want is a row — not a. i
debate. You said, ••■Senator Dick talks
like an ase." Your saying so doesn't make
It so. Now, I. shall not reply to you. Mr
Barber, in kind. ' Besides, I have too much i
respect for the as 3to put you both In the
same class. Furthermore, the ass Is of ;
some use in the. community with a net
amount of value to his credit. Again, if
you really think "Dick talks like an ass."
why do you want to debate with him
I would not charge you with eavesdrop
ping, but you confess it. You say you
overheard all I said over the telephone to
my secretary at Washington about your
letter to Senator Aldrich, and your ex
perience is the common fate of all eaves-
I droppers— got it all wrong. Nest
time, Mr. Barber, come up to the house
and put your ear to the keyhole.
You say the reason you wrote Senator
Aldrich was because you preferred to deal
with the principal rather than with the
clerk. Now the fact is, I received two let
ters from you, now in my possession, ask
ing that the duties on imported matches
be increased SO per cent over th© rates in
the Dingley law. Perhaps you were right
about it, but I am amazed at your audac- \
ity in now posing as a tariff reformer, de- »
manding revision downward, or free trade,
having so recently urged an increase in

were thirty-seven horses in all In it when

A Car of Beauty and Common Sense
In all the 1910 Rainier models individuality, style
and elegance remain distinctive Rainier characteristics.

a new standard in cars of that class. Following out the
straight lines of the torpedo type of body, side doors
give entrance to the front seats, but unlike the torpedo
type there is no appearance of freakishness 2nd the
tonneau is high, roomy and comfortable.

a baby tonneau, a limousine, a landaulet and a light

It Is cheaper and more convenient to nay*
the snakes s«nt direct from Calcutta to

running direct have Lascar crews, and as
the natives are so superstitious about bar

possibly, through more devious channels.
Although negotiations have been under
way for some time, so far no direct Iln«
has offered any encouragement. Other
than having them aboard there Is no
trouble, for the snakes are boxed 119 and
