FLORIDA AUTOMOBILE RACES.
Ormond-Dayton· Contest to B· Hold
It has been decided to hold the sev
enth annual Florida beach races on
the fast sand course, as usual, the
dates selected being March 23 to 26,
There will be radical changes In the
conduct of the races. One of the
events will be a sweepstakes price
■tock car race, the cars being handi
capped according to price and not en
gine power. This will give the public
a good idea as to "what Is what" at a
certain price. The βίτ Thomas Dewar
$2,000 trophy for the international one
mile race will be given outright. There
will be several thousand dollars in
cash prises hung up for the races.
There will be one special race open
to competitors in past Vandcrbllt cup
taces, for which a cash prize will be
offered. The stock car event will
probably go over a part beach and
part road course, crowing two bridges,
provided permission can be secured
from the authorities, and It is thought
that the average of 52.BO miles pel
hour, made by the winning stock car
at Savannah, will be beaten at Day
tona, as a speed of sixty miles per
hour can easily be made by some stock
One of the big races will be that for
the Minneapolis trophy, which was
won last year by the Flat, the late
Bmanuel Cedrino driving. This trophy
must be won twice, so thst if a Flat
wins It again It will become the prop
erty of the Flat Automobile company.
There will be a two mile a minute
speed crown race similar to the one
captured by Victor Demogeot, the
great French driver, who in 1906
hurled his racer over the two mile
stretch In B8 4-6 seconds. Cars In this
race must equal two miles a minute
to win. Of course this speed Is only
possible on the farfamed beach on the
east coast of Florida.
BASEBALL'S EARLY OPENING.
Americans Start April 12 and Na
tionals Two Days Later.
The datée and games for the open
ing of the major league baseball sea
son were given out recently by the
presidents of both organizations. April
12 will witness the opening of the
American league, and the teams will

lows: Boston at Philadelphia and New

The National league will begin to

WESTERN FOOTBALL GAMES.
Michigan Not en Schedule of th· Big
Elevens In West.
Coach Stagg of the University of Chi
cago, Dr. Williams of Minnesota and
Director Hutchine of Wisconsin met In
Chicago recently, and the big football
games for the western teams next fall
were agreed upon. The dates were not
given out, but the Chicago-Wisconsin
game will be played at Marshall field,
Chicago-Minnesota at Minneapolis and
the Wisconsin-Minnesota contest at
It I· a conspicuous fact that Michi
gan was not mentioned during the con
ference of the three football managers.
That makes It positive that no game
will be scheduled by any of the three
big teams with the Wolverenes.

African Natlv·· Who Were LavUh In
Their Use of 8oap.
MUs Mary Klngsley, who made many
Journeys in the wtlds of Africa, used
to relat· bow once, flnding It necessa
ry to clean·· a much soiled and stained
blouse, she carried It, with a cake of
aoap, to a neighboring spring, where
an Interested group of native women
watched her wash it They were much
Impressed by the way In which the
spots disappeared, and it emerged as
good aa new.
The next morning when it came time
to break camp Miss Klngsley missed
her soap—a precious commodity In the
wilderness. Suspicion soon pointed to
a certain woman, who, on being ac
cused, confessed boldly that she bad
taken It and cast It Into the spring
that Its extraordinary powers of re
newing old garments might be perma
nently Imparted to the waters. She
was deeply mortified te learn that tier
effort had been In rain.
The Rev. Peter McQueen of Charles
town, Mass.. tolls a kindred story. His
soap, however, was not lost, although
misused. He still had It with him.
"1 told our native serrants to be sure
to lay in a supply of clean water
when we crossed the Tarn desert, a
scorched belt of sand stretching some
seventy-six miles," he relates. "Tid
ings had reached us that an English
explorer who had attempted to cross
that desert shortly before us bad per
ished from thirst, so we wanted to be
"You can Imagine my surprise when,
upon taking my Qrst draft of water, I
discovered that It tasted strongly of
soap. ^11 the casks were similarly
tainted, and we rounded up the natives
and held a hasty court martial.
"It waa a tough predicament, but I
couldn't refrain from smiling within
when the leader of them meekly con
fessed that as the master bad Instruct
ed htm to lay in a supply of clcan wa
ter be had seen to it that bars of soap
were added, for soap, he said, was
used to clean things."
They did not perish of thirst, but
after sixteen days of drlnkinsc soap
suds. which agreed with neither palate
nor stomach, no native of that partic
