The Tuscania, which is one of the

days on her trip here from Glasgow.
The submarine was sighted on Mon

Economy is Cost Divided by Tim 2
T(io reason why the Studebaker Four is
the most. economical four is because of the
extra quality, the extra safety,' the extra
power, the extra low upkeep.
Extra safety means the extra feature of
strength which takes the strain of the shock
which wrecks the small cheap car.
Extra" power means smooth, vibration
less operation, noj the jarring, jerking, rack
ing strains of over exerted power. , (
Extra low upkeep isMhe sum of the ad
vantages mentioned above, and it is the sum
of economy, and that is. why Studebaker be
lieves it is better to put a little more money
and a great deal more quality in manufac
turing a car ljke the Series 18 at $985, and at
the same time give you a seven-passenger
body, genuine leather upholstery and the
same quality of fittings and equipment that
you .find in cars costing more than twice as
much as the Studebaker Fpur.
We repeat that the Studebaker Series 18
is th3 most economical four in the world.
Come in and ask for demonstration.

mained on. deck, until they were cer
tain the danger was over. Some of
them asserted that they saw the sub
marine fire a torpedo at the steam
ship. Denies Seeing Submarine
When the Tuscania was about 150
miles east of Nantucket Lightship, at
ten o'clock Tuesday morning, a sus
picious looking craft was sighted
ajwut four miles away on the port
bow. As the steamship got closer up
the stranger altered her course as if
to cross the bows of the Tuscania; She
was a two-masted vessel, "painted
black, with one funnel "and flush deck
fore and aft, lying low in the water
and lookinrr like a tramp.
Not takiKj any chances, the Tus
c'ania altered her course quickly and
went off at her best speed. The
stranger followed and hung on for
half an hour or more, and then gave
up, as she evidentlyIacked the speed.
Captain P. McLean, of the Tusca
nia, denied that he had seen any sub
marine on the trip. He admitted sight
ing the stranger on Tuesday morning,
and did not stop to find out what she
was or what she was doing in that
The Tuscania was the largest of
nine steamships arriving from Euro
pean ports within twenty-four hours.

Almost Unlimited Right Given
or Developing Power
(Special to The Farmer.)
Hartford. March 23 With little or
no opposition the House yesterday
passed the Housatonlc Power Co. bill,
hotter known as the "Roraback bill,"
a measure which gives to the Kocky
River Power Co. almost unlimited
right in , the development of light and
nnwpr nlants in the state. The pro
visions of the bill have caused con
siderable close inquiry by members 01
the General Aassembly, but no serious
when House Chairman Talcott of the
committee on incorporations asKea
'for the passage of the measure.
Representative Coroett or Jtiarxioru
did not oppose the bill but he said it

Housatonic Power Co. ana tne itocity
Riwr no. shall be combined in a com
pany to be known as the Connecticut
Light & Power Co. me company
nronoses to take power from the
Housatonic river but its charter al
lows it to develop light and power
from other rivers in the state.
Renresentative N. Candee of Nor-
walk asked if the bill permitted the
company to take over the municipal
light and power plant in his tpwn. He
was told it did not.
Representative C. N. Hall of New
Milford spoke for the bill. He said
it was intended to develop the power
resources of the Housatonic valley
and that at present a $1,000,000
bleachery is building at New Milford
His townsmen have been assured that
a $3,000,000 corporation employing
3,000 persons will locate in the town
if the proper power and light facili
ties can be guaranteed. He said this
was In line with the development of
that section of the state as an indus
trial as well as an agricultural com
munity. After the bill had been passed and
in order to clinch it, Chairman Talcott
who' voted for the measure moved
that.it be reconsidered. The motion
WILL BE BIG AID
Patents Cross-Coimtry Carrier
for Submarines and U
The first active step towards quick
mobilization of saifbmarine and subma
rine chasers is seen in the granting of
patents for a marine carriage which
will probably soon be manufactured In
this city, to Simon Lake. . , v
The device is substantially a "com
bination of the marine Railway "era
die" and a low mounted railway truck.
Its ope rait ion would entail the lower
ing of the specially devised car into
deep-water ways upon -submerged
tracks. A boat would fbe operated into
the cralile, made fast in similar man
ner to that faow used in drawing boats
into shipyards, and hauled upon rail
road tracks to any point desired.
The radius of transportation would
be jimited only by the interference of
overhead obstructions, which might
be struck by the omnlscopers.
Lake's original idea of the '"amphi
bious submarine" and quick" mobility
of coast defenses whereby a fleet of
boats may be transported by land
faster than could be done on the
water or through enemy blockades, is
now carried one step further by the
government's recognition -of the In
The device, which will render pos
sible the quick formation of a fleet of
submarine chasers upon any part of
the coast line where danger of attack
may be apprehended, is not applicable
at this time to the larger submarines
of wide cruising radius, because of
their great size and weight, but makes
possible the- building of smaller and
less expensive craft by the govern
ment in greater numbers and gives
wider and more efficient coast protec
tion to the country than heretofore.
f or girls-
We need more young women who can sell dry goods
and all the other merchandise to be found in a department
There are good places here for such girlsV The work
is pleasant; the wages good. A girl's "opportunity is just
as big as she makes it. ' '
As the store grows bigger, the number of opportuni
ties grows bigger.
That growth makes more salespeople needed.
If you seek enjoyable work, free from unpleasant sur
roundings, here is your opportunity. .
