International Road Racing Has Produced Some Good Results That intumatlonal racing has serv ed a good purpose and, directiy as one might say, has resulted in placing the American motor car on a par with the best in the world, is shown by the fol lowing statement by Henry Ford In Explanation of how and why his com |any took up the study of special steels and as a consequence of its researches lias adopted what has hitherto been the highest priced alloy steel made, (and which In fact hafi been heretofore com mercially Impossible) Vanadium chrome steel. "The basis of all knowledge" says Ford is a knowledge of how far one is behind'—not necessarily behind others, but how far his efforts fall short of the Ideal." Fact is, we in America were so busy building new plants to take care of the increasing demand, we had not time to learn the most import ant lesson—how inadequate to our special needs were tlie metal which could be had in the ordinary markets. & UK O No. Afrington, Man.' i s!P V Mftt Vanadium would solve all our prob lems—but so might radium If enthu siasts would pay a few million dollars each for cars. Then a happy coin cidence occurred—or rather we were advised of it. A mine of Vanadiforous ore had been discovered in South America and was being developed by Pittsburg capitalists, and Vanadium steel could now be made for about the same price as nickle steel, to which it is incomparably superior. Quietly, for some months armor plate and pro jectile experiments had been made with Vanadium steel. Nothing Is im possible to him who wills. Three weeks ago we made the first Vanadium steel ever made In commercial quantities— 40-tOn heats and by the open hearth process. The first ever used in Amer ican: motor car construction, and from now on American cars can claim qual ity unsurpassed by and and equalled by few cars made abroad, and the little incident of the valve in the racing ear gave us the cue." DETROIT'S MASCOT. The Team Took a Sudden Brace When Joined by Tramp# 'One of the Tigers sprung the follow Ing superstitious yarn on a southern scribe a few days ago: "When in Philadelphia the Detroit team always stops at the old Conti nental hotel. One day last summer, just before the players left for the park, a fellow who looked like a tramp, but who talked as if he had seen bet ter days, dropped Into the hotel and inquired for Manager "Armour. The Detroit team had been'in a losing rut for some time, and when the ragged looking chap informed Armour that he was a mascot and wanted to see the game, he was immediately signed. He was placed In the bus with the players and escorted to the park. Detroit won the game. The mascot was taken to Detroit with the team and the Tigers won eight more before they lost a game. "The Detrolts took the mascot to St. Louis, where he was all rigged out in a new suit of clothes and taken to Chicago to see the world's series. De troit finished the season in Chicago on Sunday, defeating the White Sox, and the tramp picked up in Philly occu pied one of the boxes. "The way the team worked the rail way company was an Interesting stunt. The tramp would always board the special sleeper just as if he was one of the players. He would be secreted in an upper berth. After the ticket had been presented to the conductor and the men counted, the rest was easy for the knight of the road, as Charley O'Leary and "Dutch" Schaefer used to On i ".*•'*• :rf GOODS EVERY Wanted to take hold of It. and bead it alone as 1 could easily do with a piece of steel such as we used. Finally 1 did offer to help and the four of us tugged and lunged on that little rod of steel. Minutes were precious and we worked hard—then I awoke to the fact that there was something more in alloy steels than hq.d been drempt of in our philosophy. "Returning home I at once set our whole technical force to work on an alysis, experiments and tests of steels. We purchased parts of foreign cars. We studied heat treatment as well as alloys and learned how to perform miracles not only with steel but with other metals. It was by accident, how ever, we discovered the presence of an element for which we were not look ing—Vanadium our text books. Vanadium—worth many times the price of pure gold. And used in automobiles. So! Vanadium imparts to steel almost magical qual ities. One-quarter of 1 pei: cent of the precious mineral does the business —but the world's output of 200 pounds a month would nbt go far and the price, was prohibitive.

LYNX KILLED AT KELLY6. Animal 8caroe in This Locality la Laid Low by Hunters.

Grafton Baptist Edifice Slightly Dam aged as Result of an Explosion, Grafton Record: People living in the vicinity of the Baptist church were startled Sunday afternoon by a ter rific explosion, which jarred the houses in the immediate vicinity like an earthquake. An Investigation showed that the boiler which was used to heat the water in the baptising tank had blown up. The Boiler was a small affair, about three feet high and as big around as a good-sized palK This boiler was located in the basement and a fire had been built under it to heat the water in the tank, which was to have been used in the evening. No doubt the pipes leading from the boiler had frozen up, and as these were the only vents, the steam accumulated and lifted the entire outfit up through the double floor into the main church room, shot over the pulpit, seemingly going up on a slant slightly to the west, smashing through the plastering and roof boards and raising the shing les on the outside. The boiler then dropped to the floor with one end gone and otherwise disfigured. The two pipes in the basement do not seem to be disturbed and the boiler evidently got away so quick that they let go in a hurry and did not try to follow. ner a lynx. T.

A further investigation on Tuesday morning showed that the boiler had first struck a 2x10 timber and cut its way through it as smooth as if done with an ax. The water was contained in a steel jacket of the boiler, the fire going through the center. It was this jacket that gave way from the bottom and the boiler went up like a rocket. The fire was built before the Mott, the superintendent, in conduct ing a review walked back and forth over the boards which are now splint ers.
