Every car owner enloys the sensa tion of llflng- the hood of bis car and finding- a motor that "looks clean. Realizing- this, the Cole builders have used highly polished nickel unspar Ingly and even coated the cylinder blocks with fire-proof lustrous paint. Especially, however, does the com pany pride Itself in the treatment given the exterior of the exhaust manifolds, which so often have proved themselves a nuisance to en Cine designers who have sought to give them a permanent appearance of "newness." It Is claimed positively that the Cole exhaust manifolds will not cor rode or tarnish. They are coated with porcelain enamel, applied at a temperature of about 2,300 degrees Fahrenheit. Inasmuch, as manifolds In service seldom acquire a tempera ture of more than S00 to 1,000 de crees, the coatinr on their exterior Is said to be absolutely Impervious to me errects or neat, -roe porcelain enameling is essentially a Cole pro cess, having been developed through years of careful study.

John Costello, also of New York, Is held as. an acessory before the fact. Formal charges against the man were made following the coroner's Inquest In the death of the policeman. A CAR OF POUBLE BEAUTY -asjsna-K4jwrsMa To dwell on the beauty of this Chalmers town car is like trying to paint an Egyptian sunset. One sees at a glance a motor carriage for which Cleopatra would have given much of her kingdom. Inside: all doors and division panels inlaid with mahogany; fittings in oxidized silver, Adam style; double dome lights; a charming toilet case; a practical smoking set; a convenient chauffeur dictaphone; fatigue pillows; fabric-covered robe rails with silvered ferrules; vases; silk draperies ; eight day clock ; umbrella holders with drips in front. And still a greater beauty a town car propelled by an engine, amply powered, simple, and perfected for cold weather service. Result: an absence of engine sputterings and murmurings that some times get on the nerves. However, the price of this, as well as other enclosed Chalmers, is surprisingly low. E. F. SWEENY. E. F. Sweeny, new district man' after for the Chicago Pneumatic Tool Company Little Giant, trucks is well cast in his present berth. Ten years of truck experience at the factory and on the road have tauj-ht'him the truck business as few are given to know it. Truck users including those who use them seldom have any idea of the yiagnitude of the Little Giant organization, and that Chicago pneumatic tools may be had in ev ery corner of the globe. And so it is not remarkable that Sweeny knows exactly what a Lit tle Giant will do over any and every sort of road condition with which it may have to cope his experience didn't bother about where it grew up; thriving in Africa, Europe, Aus tralia, the Orient, and South Amer ica, as well in these U.

' Hut the night foreman, a husky in dividual, gently but (Irmly told his boss that he couldn't have a car with out an order. Carmody offered to write an order on a visiting card. Nothing doing. Mr. Ankeny's orders were that no car was to be taken from the service station without written n structlons on a regular form. Carmody rode home In a taxlcab. P. E. Rowe has been spending much of his time this week in the country. Kowe nas not been in the best of health and is a great lover of out doors.
