But there's this difference ?the tire that you bought on a price basis costs more than you expected while the Diamond Tire always costs less. C The first cost of Diamond Tires may be a little higher, but they only cost as much as they must in order to be as good as they are. C There are fourteen years of experience behind every Diamond Tire, and all of that experience is experience in making as ?ood a tire as could be made. From the very first the Diamond policy has been opposed to the idea of competing on a price basis only. * C There is only one sure way to cut tiro expense to the lowest and that is to buy Diamond Tires and stick to them. More people buy Diamond Tires today than buy any other single brand of tires in the world. In addition to dependable dealers everyw here, there are FIFTY-FOUR Diamond SerrUe Stations.

HOWELLS Famous Guests, Including Taft, Attend Dinner to Greatest of Living American Writers. ISpecial 1,0 Tho Times-Dispatch.] New York, March 'J.?Men and wo ] inon who have written reams of "copy" \ to entertain and educate America, gathered lo-ulglit at Sherry's and did honor to Wllllnm Dean Howells, ad- I j mlttfdly tho greatest of them all, who i i ycBtordny celebrated his seventy-fifth blrthduy anniversary. Colonel Ocorgo \V Harvey was host, and President I Taft was the special guest Others I present were real literary 'Mights," J Including Hamilton \V Muhle, "Winston Churchill, IJastl King, William Allen White, Augustus Thomas, James Barnes. Ida M. Tarbell and Carolyn Wells. When Howells somewhat overcome by the praises which were heaped upon h'ni and his work, arose to respond, h's volco was not as steady ns in or? dinary conversation. Ho conquered his meotlons, however, and na!d with j characteristic good humor: "I have never had a seventy-fifth blrthduy beforo in my Ufo und I am ' Keenly aware that in now vonturlng I ! upon oiio I am transcending the I I psalmist's limit of three-score years i and ten. Yot with nil this, I will not] deny that there Is some merit in hav? ing lived seventy-five ynars, In having I outrun the psalmist with his hamper? ing limit, though there is not so much merit ast the man who has done It Is apt to think." ? President Taft's praise of Howells I was brief, but to the point I "I have traveled from Washington j to-day," he said, "to do honor to the groat American writer and novelist. I havo done so because of the personal debt I feel for the pleasure he has I given me in what ho has written, in ' the picture of Afc^rlcah life and char I ucter he has palnV In which I have had sufficient cxp4 ?; to know the . truth and the de? icy of his task. "Neither the emphasis nor the shad? ing of hU meaning have robbed his ! pen ol" the lucidity and clearness that delight the common mind llko mine, ? and his delightful nnd kindly humor has created a feeling of affection for : the author that prompts an expression like this.. "He Is eiislly at the head of 4he lit- j orary mcp of tho nut'on. Like Shakos- : peuro, like Burns, like Lincoln, he Is' not a university mun, but he began , his cductitlon by Netting typo on a country newspaper und haa continued that education to thlH present period of useful old age. Everything he has written contains tho highest standard of social purity, of rollne- ; inent ajid morality. He has added to American literature treasures of liter? ary excellence, tho enjoyment of which will make coming generations grateful." j Cablegrams, telegrams, letters and poems from authors of international fame were read at the dinner. All , 1 of them told of admiration for "the I dean or American letters," expressing I In different phraseology tho tome ; things that President Taft said. ADVISES CONSERVATISM.

Canada, March -\?-The killing to-day by a vigilance committee of a bank robbir, who was shot to death during the pursuit of a gang which tried $o loot a branch of tho Royal Burtk at Montreal, West, ended a romance which apparently was to have culminated on Tuesday. In the clothes of tho doad bandit were found the pic? ture of a girl, pasted In tho back of a pocket mirror, and a nsw wedding ring, ongravod with tbo words: "Will to Klt'tlo, March 6, 1913." The ring, with its engravins, and a tattoo mark on tho chest 'of the man, heaving, the words, "In memory, of mother and father," arc the only clues by which tho polios hope to establish the identity of tho robber. In their ! opinion the party of -safe blowerB come I from the United States. Four members of tho gang escaped after a running I fight, with the vigilance committee, [ which attacked the robbers before titcy could obtain any booty. Tho fugitives wore supplied with snowshoes, which enabled them to outrun their pursuers.
