The Loafing Range This range covers all ordinary re quirements. And your car performs with an ease and grace becoming a car of such class and distinction. Yet in this range the fuel consumption is ' only half normal for a car of such size and power. The Sporting Range This range gives you power and speed which few, even of other distin guished cars can show. Open her double poppets. You need fear no contender no road conditions. You have a car that will more than hold jEhiS its own a'car of almost unbelievable l$? contrasts of performance. Let us demonstrate the advantages of two separate and distinct power ranges.

Lines to the Little Children When, as plodding our task the day, Over this fairish place Children, deep in their simple play Tumble and tear and race. Free as wind on the open plain, Hither and yon they flit: Streets they view as a Child's Domain, Traffic the curse of it. All we queried we heard condemn Drivers and owners thus "We don't haff to lookkout fer them, Let 'em lookout fer us." Boys with bicycles, balls and kites, Girls with their roller skates ' Who would touch on their childish rights, Prating that Danger waits? Still, the answer that drivers grope Wonders them what to do. Are we next to the answer? Nope I Neither for that, are you. Ask the children who block the way. Threaten them, weep, entreat. "You kin lookkout fer us," they say, "Vhadda ya' want, the street?" The licking administered by Joe Dawson to the National Ex press, on the B. & O., in the Belteville stretch some time ago, has gone the rounds. By the time it got to Baltimore, Howard Biscoe, automobile editor of the American, had an entirely new idea of the speed of the Chalmers speedster. Actually, the Chalmers was driven at a speed as high as ser-enty-four miles an hour In beating the crack train. The American, howerer whose representative was' in Bal timore on that day stated that Dawson wa "aTargbg ay where from eighty to ninety miles an hour." Oh, Sapphiral Then there is the crusty, crabbed tedrrfdual we rod wUi on the Sooner-or-Later Fourteenth street car line. Conscious of our proximity he folded himself up as a Jack-knife so that wa could not read Mr. Edward McLean's full page advertisement urging every American to buy a Liberty bond. A wager! That the crab in question is the kind of a flag waver who talks with pride of Our Country andrfen to the sailors and soldiers he sees in theaters as rowdies. Vou may doubt that Mr. George Cohan's photographer in the Solid Cold photorersion of "Seven Keys to Baldpate" is, honest, Louis Physioc. Motorffoose-No. 6 Jack Spratt could eat no fat; HU wife could eat no lean Bat what they saved In batchers' bills They spent in gasolene. MOTOR, it appears, is suffering from acute vogue. It's December number has a striking cover, whose motor ear is subordinate to the skating ladies in the foreground. There doesn't seem to be a good reason why these ladies should be wearing skirts considerably shorter than the knee, ex cept maybe because MOTOR'S circulation is falling off. We said a few nice things about MILESTONES, the Fire stone monthly, a week or two agone. And so we feel privileged to criticise. Our notion of a magazin, publication, or other printed prod uct which does not give credit for the jokes it prints and the pic tures it publishes, is very, very negligible. What He Would Have Written Had Mr. Wordsworth Been A Motorist, liy heart leaps up when I behold A cop hold up his mitten. So was it when my car was young Before its parts were rusted, sprung, Its body smitten. But, bar the cough that marks its lung. Its health is good. Xo ago can blight The vigor of its nppetite. Reports from New York Indicate that the Harlem river tube will shortly need patching. Cheaper, we should say, than a new tube. A San Franciscan asked another ditto where he could learn to fly. "Why, y'poor fish," answered the second, "join one of tho fly ing schools near Catalina Island." Potomac River Anthology. After the street car strike Early in 1917, Because handouts wero scarce Owing to Mr. Hoover's hypnotism Of housewives. I was forced to accept a Job On the Chevy Chase car line.
