In the Atlanta-to-New York good roads tour the Welch-Detroit car, entered by the local Buick branch an! used by the starter and secretary of the tour, made one of the most unusual runs ever made by any car In a tour. Being the last car in the tour to leave the. controls. it was under obligations to play the part of the "Good Samaritan" to the weak and disabled cars it overtook. It carried five passengers and one thousand pounds of baggage. On the. fourth day out the Welch-Detroit towed nineteen cars out of the mud and mire and still got -in on time. On the fifth day it made a run of 233 miles through rain and mud for the day. After arriving in this city on Monday night, without a single mechanical repair or adjustment, the car was started on Tuesday morning in the "Around Long Island.

Five Bolck cars were entered, and each one finished without a mechanical adjustment. The Ujm Model 1" Buick. driven by Charles lanes, made one of the three perfect scores in Its class. This little car easily followed the largest cars in th« run-averaging twenty-Mx miles to a gallon of gasolene and one hundred mile? to a quart of oil. The New York branch of the Bulck Motor Company believes in contests, and intends to enter Buick cars In all local events.

Classes : are of two weeks' duration and include ; very thorough instruction on the subjects ; of assemJJy. adjustment and general care of the car and some driving practice. A novel test to determine the strength. of a new quick-detachable- rim . consists of dropping a rim with an Inflated tiro through a shaft a distance of five stories, and then taking the same rim and running it with a deflated tire over very rough roads lor a number of miles. At a demon stration made last week with the Dorian remountafcle clincher rims, these tests were successfully made by this new device. Ixruis Disbrow. who drove his Knox Giantess to a place in three of the num bers of the TVilkes-Barre hill climb last Tuesday, was not regarded by the officials as a particularly well fitted driver to han dle the big course before he started. But his work there has demonstrated that he is one of the men who will be counted with in racing events of the future. He has driven in live twenty-four contests, and has made brilliant .showings in all of them. At Atlanta last year he won the $10,000 tro phy for the auO-mile race, and is in de mand by many makers for racing -work.

Stories of Cars in Action Endurance of Men and Motors in Recent Con* tests Tried by Nearly Impossible Roads. Tlie big Palmer and Singer gunboat, the Fast Flying Virginian, which K. G. Ap person drove In the run from New York to Atlanta, made another sensational run ito Montauk Point and return in the run around Long Island. The car carried the same equipment that it had in the Atlanta run and again distinguished itself through the bad lands and on the flat. The car was entered in the Atlanta run after completing a 2,500-mile trip through the mountains of Virginia and North Caro lina. Jt etartcd equipped exactly as cata logued, even removing shock absorbers in order to comply exactly with the letter of the law. It carried its full complement of passengers and an excess of baggage and equipment. The weight, coupled with the bad roads, was hard on the tires, and twen ty-three punctures and two blowouts were suffered on the trip. One blowout cast a rear shoe when within five miles of tho checking station at the end of a 160-mile run. In the deep mud it took over four hours to wnKh.and scrape the thick clay off the rim to get a new shoe In place and the car was penalized a point for each minute which it was consequently late In reaching the control. This prevented it at taining a perfect score. The roads had been freshly laid with new soil in order to prepare them for the tour ists, and In view of the steady downpour of rain became practically a quagmire. The big F. F. V. had no difficulty In plough ing through at speed and held the middle of the road, besides climbing hills without the slightest trouble. Apperson's sportsmanship was conspicu ous throughout the trip, and when asked at its completion to enter the L«ong Island run he went in without hesitancy, stopping only to fit a new Eet of tires. The engine was not touched during any part of the 1,700 miles and showed plenty of pow^r at all time.«. Fred Titus's three-year-old demonstrator also gave abundant evidence of power, carrying eight passengers to Montauk and return, besides 200 pounds of baggage, with out trouble even in the bad lands. Having tasted the Joys of a world's cham pionship, Fred Clarke, the manager of the Pittsburg Pirates, is out after the same ecalp this season. Realizing that It will re quire all his available time and energy, i*e conserves both by constantly using his new Btudebaker "4a" With the close of tho baseball season the car will be headed for Winfleld, Kan., and then the dust will fly.

But what of th :ars which manufacturers supply at grea ;ost and the temporary disorganization o he general distributing business, to hel; >ut the officials and accommodate th numbers of the press?

Grant, when not racing, drives a demonstrating car about Boston, and re cently ne nas been getting notoriety there as an unintentional obstructor of traffic. Grant had a, very interesting locomotive and tender hauling a flat car bearing the Vanderbllt Cup, all worked out In miniature and set on the hood of his six-cylinder Alco touring car. The locomotive carried electric lights, and Its wheel 3 were kept revolving by a little electric motor. "Vyhile Grant and his car were standing in front of a hotel on on© of the narrow streets ot the Hub, the diminutive railroad train at tracted a crowd that so obstructed traffic as to cause a policeman to order Grant to move on. The law allows a car to stop five minutes In a place, and the deliberate driver "took the count" up to the last second of his legal allowance before pulling out, telling the officer it was his duty to disperse the crowd. The incident is characteristic of Grant, who Is noted for his coolness and fur?, head work when racing. ARTISTIC POLICE OFFICERS.
