Celebrates Installation of Electric
Light Plant in Carnival
of Merrymaking
Vaquero Club Thrills Thousands
with Feats of Horsemanship.
Entertainment Varied
Glendale, the Jewel City of the San
Fernando valley, was at home yester
day to its neighbors. Thousands called
and thousands were made welcome.
The celebration was arranged to cele
brate the installation of a municipal
electric light plant, and last night the
broad thoroughfares of the downtown
district were gay with light, while
everywhere hung orange bunting, the
carnival color, together with American
flags and Japanese lanterns gayly
All day long and far into the evening
outgoing cars on the Pacific Electric
line were crowded with passengers
eager to enjoy the city's hospitality,
and a royal welcome they received up
on their arrival in the town. The
Salt Lake road carried other hundreds
to the merry-making. There were
crowds, but little crowding and no
discomfort. The weather was ideal.
Morning visitors were sent sightsee
ing, automobiles and carriages pro
vided by the carnival committee taking
them to the various points of interest.
Many went to Verdugo canyon, to
Verdugo park, the Glendale Country
club and other accessible beauty spots.
And when they returned they were
singing, with their hosts, "Has' Ever
ybody Here Seen Glendale?" an impro
vised lyric fitted to the familiar tune
of "Has Anybody Here Seen Kelly?"
At noon the hungry visitors appeased
their appeptites at a great barbecue,
•which provided literally tons of finely
cooked and tender meats, the pits be
ing in charge of R. G. Doyle.
In the afternoon there was a thrill-
Ing exhibition of horsemanship by
members of the Vaquero club, athletic
contests of various sorts, including a
baseball game, and other diversions.

Fewer Formalities Increase Num

PARIS, May 14.—1t is an interesting
and noteworthy fact that since the
promulgation of the law of June, 1807.
the effect of which is to simplify the
formalities which are the necessary
preliminaries to marriage in this
country, there have been more wed
dings 'in France than at any period
since tli.. beginning of last century,
with the exception of the years 181J
and 1872, in the former of which men
contracted unions to escape being sent
oil to light, while in the latter many
weddings took place which had been
delayed by the war with Germany.
This very satisfactory stale of things
is due to the initiative of tin- Abbe
kern ire, one of the deputies for the
department of the Nord. He was not
able to get all his propositions :i<l"i>t
ed by his colleagues, but the law
which was finally passed, such as it is,
lms already done a vast amount of
Among the relief which the act has
brought to persons intending to marry
it has. freed those who are over 80
years of age from procuring the whole
series of documents and certificates
upon which the code civil insisted.
Then, alter the age mentioned, it is
no longer necessary to obtain the con
sent of 111«- parents—indeed, after the
age of "1 this can also be dispensed
with, provided that it is shown that
due notice has been sent to them.
These are the two principal benefit's
of the law of 1907, and the result is
that many people are now maj^-ied
who might formerly have been tempt
ed to do without the ceremony, as
they found it impossible to collect the
necessary papers or were prevented
by thjp caprice of parents who refused
their consent for no valid reason.
What the relief thus obtained means
■will be understood when it Ls explained
that in the case of persons who had
lost their parents and who were en
gaged to be married upwards of nine
teen documents were required by the

it is in the large towns where people

most conspicuous, and all this makes

seems to require a good deal of practi

British Speculation and Increased
Demand for Auto Tires
Influence Prices
Situation Thought Stimulus to Ex
ploitation of New Brazilian
Rubber Fields
The world Is standing aghast watch
ing the high flight of crude rubber
prlces and wondering whether the limit
has been reached. Since the day when
Charles Goodyear first discovered the
art of vulcanization, the rubber milk
of the tropical forest has played a
part of increasing importance in sup
plying articles of necessity to the com
fort of mankind.
Wnr fifty years the price of crude
rubber has averaged considerably less
than $1 per pound, two years ago it
stood at 65 cents per pound, and today
it is above $3—a level that takes it
out of many a field it has heretofore
Are the causes artificial or natural
that have produced the present situa
tion, and is the world to be deprived
of the great boon Of cheap rubber?
These are the questions that the peo
ple are asking themselves and that
led F. A- Selberling, president of the
Goodyear Tire and Rubber company
of Akron, 0., on a tour of investigation
through South America that took two
months' time and more than 2000 miles
of travel ln fever-laden districts of the
Amazon river. Mr. Selberling being—so
far as known—the first American rub
ber manufacturer to-make this perilous
trip, his views, which follow, are of
great Interest:
"The high prices prevailing for crude
rubber are fairly attributable to two
primary causes: First, the abnormal
draft upon the world's supply in pro
viding tires for automobiles; Becond,
the wild speculation in rubber and rub
ber shares in England, which has taken
on the aspect of a "South Sea Bubble'
In a mad scramble of people of all
classes to 'get rich quick' on rubber.
London is the financial center of the
world's rubber market, and the craze I
now running Its course there is hav
ing a tremendous sentimental influ
ence toward lifting prices. This will
correct itself in the collapse which, in
due time, is certain to come, and will
carry with it its trail of diaster and
ruin to the rubber gamblers in the
manner always attending the bursting
of financial bubbles.
"Storios ari^ being circulated to the
effect that the rubber supply is be
ing rapidly exhausted and that the
world is faring a famine, but a care
ful view of the situation justifies an
opposite opinion.
"The past year more than 70,000 tons
of crude rubber, having a value ap
proximating $300,000,000, were produced,
of which 40,000 tons came out of the
Amazon river. This was wholly wild
rubber, gathered almost entirely from
a belt extending along the Amazon
and its tributaries, and running less
than three miles into the interior. The
I vast forest beyond these borders Is
substantially untouched, but with tho
building of the railroad around the
falls of the Madeira, which will be
completed In 1911, and with the build
ing of roads through the forest con
necting up rivers, the Introduction of
the automobile nnd the gasoline boat,
vast districts heretofore inaccessible
will be brought within reach of the
rubber gatherer, and while the gain in
production each year has been ap
proximately but 10 per cent over the
previous year, there is no question that
this percentage will increase largely
from this time forward.
"But a Very important factor toward
relieving the existing situation is found
In the plantation rubber in the East
Indies, which Is now coming into tho
market in large quantities, each year's
production being substantially double
that of the preceding year. Whereas
we had less than 4000 tons In 1909, we
shall receive approximately 8000 tons
in 1910, and well up to 16,000 tons In
1911, and within five years a quantity
larger than is now furnished by the
Amazon, which is a remarkable result
considering the fact that three years
ago the production of the entire East
Indian district represented but a few
hundred tons.
world xet:t)S it
"That product of nature which ex-ists
in abundance, and which the world
needs, it will find a way to obtain.
Wild rubber trees In almost limitless
quantities exist in Brazil, awaiting
tho touch of human energy to yield
up their latex, and the world will un
doubtedly find means to obtain Its re
quired supply.
"The ruling classes in Brazil are an
intelligent people, and though they
have been slow to realize the advan
tage of planting rubber, they are now
following tin- lead of the East Indies,
and within :i few years the Amazon
valley will bo furnishing plantation
rubber far in excess of the wild rubber
now coming down the river.
"As an indication of tho Immensity
of its opportunities, ono Island in tho
mouth of tho Amazon river—lsle M::
rajo, which is larger than the state of
Maine—is capable of furnishing- planta
tion rubber in quantity more than the
entire world is now consuming. The
government is enacting- legislation to
stimulate the planting of trees, and
while we shall temporarily be sub
jecti d to high prices on crude rubber,
since it is known that plantation rub
ber can be produced for 25 cents a
pound as certain as night follows the
day, we will within a few years have
a large oversupply that will bring the
cost lower than it has ever been here
"Users of rubber tires, on account of
the present high prices, will have
thought toward prolonging their life
and Increasing their mileage, which
ran readily be clone by carrying prop

Once Inoculated with Fast Going
Mania, Disease Is Almost

There is a fascination about speed
that appeals to most all of us, I be
lleve. The American generally speaks
with pride about the "fast, twentieth
century pace," and nearly every one
who is active these days likes to feel
that he is traveling as fast as his
neighbors. Wo like to speak of our
'■eighteen-hour trains," and it is only
natural that most every one is fasci
nated by speeding in an automobile.
You would think, possibly, that the
racing pilots alter several years of
, vice at the wheel of high speed
cars would begin to regard their
nights at terrific speed as a matter
„,• course a part of the day's work, as
commonplace as any other work to
which they would be devoted. I am
convinced, however, thai the peculiar
ly exhilarating sensation of traveling
at a headlong speed never loses its

Judges' stand with a plea for another

they could cut off a second or two?
There must be a glamour about
motor rai racing, otherwise so many
hundreds of thousands of people would
not travel many miles and part with
real money in order to witness the
buttles between cylinders and men.
And if these people in the grand stand

Of the contests and the odor of burning
gasoline and oil, think of the thrill
that surges through the men who are
holding onto the steering wheel and
trying to shove the prow of their

Tho wind roars In your ears, the

Oldsmobile Which Makes a Re
markable Run Is Given
Odd Characterization
An automobile which "flew like a
bird, swam like a flsh and climbed like
an antelope," Is the proud possession
of a Kansas City man. In this manner
Charles E. Logan characterizes his six
cylinder Oldsmoblle limited touring car
in which he recently made a trip from
Kansas City to his ranch in San Luis
valley, Colorado.
Mr. Logan drove his car through
without a mishap and says he had the
experience of his life. Through eastern
Kansas the mud was as bad as could
be and he was often told by farmers
that he simply could not get through;
that they were not willing to make the
attempt to get to town to buy provis
ions with a light wagon and a four
horse team. These statements did not
discourage Mr. Logan In the slightest,
his reply being that he and the "lim
ited" could go where the four horses
could not, and he proceeded to show
his faith by his works, even if It did
require two days to cover the 75 miles
from Kansas City to Topekn.
In western Kansas the sand encoun
tered was worse than the eastern Kan
sas mud. But again the "big six"
went through.
The question of roads seems to have
hern the least of Mr. Logan's trou
bles, for in Colorado, or parts of it,
where he found no roads, he made his
own. liridges were also a minor con
sideration for where he found none he
built them, or, If the stream were too
wide for that, he plunged in and
In crossing the divide via La Veta
pass, which is 11,200 foot above the
nea level, the "big six" plunged into
a twenty-foot snow bank, but came out
without a scar of any kind.
Mr Logan was as daring as he was
enthusiastic, and there was absolutely
no stopping hla onward march. There
were places in the mountains where
there were no roads, where he
crossed on the ice and where as much
as eighteen inches of skidding would
have carried him a certain drop of
2000 or 3000 feet. But the big Olds
mobile didn't skid or he could not have
told the story himself.
Wealthy Citizens and Officials
Purchase Automobiles
Alexander Byron Mohler, Of the City
of Mexico, who is the largest auto
mobile dealer in old Mexico, pays:
"There are 2300 motor earn in the
City of Mexico. We sell cars mostly
to Mexicans; some to the very wealthy
and some to those connected with the
government. L,atin people are very
critical, and they must be shown that
the car is good before they buy.
"On account of the high altitude, the
roads and the mountains, it takes a
good car to stand the gaff. As loon
as a car falls down it is almost impos
sible to make Mexican people consider
it again. They won't have anything
but the best.
"For instance, I had an experience
with a well krynvn expensive car. I
sold a few of them—they fell down.
No mutter how much ftdvertiainff, or
what we did, we could not get that car
back on the market. We spent $7000
in one year advertising that car, and
.sold only three of them."
NEW YORK, May 14 — Samp.=nn Shelter, aged
8, of Baldwin, L. 1., is Just ablo to tit up and
marvel at the wonders of modern surgery, but
never again, If he lives to be SO, will Sampson
dally with a tjn whistle. He whistled him
self to the boVderland of the Great Divide,
nn.l then the X-ray and the surgeon« stepped
In and drafted him out of danger, hence the
swearing off on tin whistles.
It wasn't much of a tin whistle at that.
It wan the sort of a tin whistle a rubber ele
phant usually wears where his stomach should
he a flat tin lozense with a hole in the
middle of It, so that It whistles both waye.
Sampson Shelter started for school Wednes
day morning tooting the whistle. In order to
Ket action he had to put Ihe whistle In hl»
mouth. He stubbed his toe and sucked the
whistle down his windpipe, and when hn tried
10 cough It out again he succeeded In pro
ducing nothin* hut shrill blasts. With overjr
breath the boy drew the whlßtle shrieked, and
It answered to his frightened exhalation*
Sampson raced home, whistling frantically.
"Speak to me, my son!" screamed his moth
er, "speak to me!"
But Sampson could not apeak. It was all he
could do to whistle. Sampson's father poured
011 down his throat; no whistle came up. For
noun tho Sheffer family labored with young
Sampson, but the whistle remained fast In th»
windpipe, where It gave news of Itself every
time Sampson breathed.
At last the neighbors got an automobile and
Sampson, still whistling feebly was hurried
Into the ear and all speed laws were broken,
Sampson whistling with every revolution of
tho wheels. He was still whistling In a dls
plrltad sort ot way when the surgeons opeer
ated on him.
