DE DION ON SUNDAY? jr#t French Car in New York-to Paris Race May Reach This City Sunday—Expected to Leave Cedar Rapids This Afternoon. It may be that the first French car in the New York-to-Paris race may reach this city Sunday. The car, De Dion, which has been laid up In Ce dar Rapids several days, for repairs to a broken frame, expected to get out of the Rapids this afternoon. The second French car, Motobloc left Chicago this morning, and the German car, Protos, expected to get out for the west today. Charles Eldridge, of the Eldrldge Beebe Automobile CompaAy, received a long distance telephone communica tion from A. F. iBoylan, at Denison, who piloted the Italian car Zust out of that place. Mr. Boylan says that the car had not taken the Illinois Central right-of-way, as reported, but had been given the privilege of using the railroad If necessary. Director Ruland, of the Zust's trip, received this morning from New York information to the effect that De Dion, the Motobloc, and the Protos would all be compelled to use their own motor power in reaching San Francisco, regardless of the time it (look, in order to comply with the rules of the race. There was some talk to the effect that the three delayed cars would ship by rail to 'Frisco. THE CAR WITH POWER Driver of the Army Car Drovs Buick in the Famous Colorado Springs Contest—A Machine With Power to Carry It on All Kinds of Roads. Those people who saw the Italian car •in the New York-to-Paris race leave this city, generally remarked upon the great speed it seemed to attain. The Italian car has four speeds, and they used only the next to the slowest speed at any time until they were within a few miles at Boone. The fact 'that the car used the slower speed geajr ma'de It appear to be going faster than it was. The lta(lian car is capable of seventy .miles an hour under the fourth or highest speed. A good many people mistake high speed for power in a car. Mr. E. J. Beebe, who piloted the car to Boone, in speaking of car speecHf said tha the driver of the army car stated that the Buick Model F, 2-cylin der was the only car out of forty that started in the contest from Colorado Springs to Balanced Rock, to reach the rock running all the way on the high speed or high gear, which demon strated its superior power. There may be other cars speedier, but the Buick will get out and do from four to forty miles an hour on the roads. It is this reliability that counts. The Eldridge Beebe Auto. Co. sell the Buick line. The cars ranging in price from $1,500 to $5,000. They are anxious to demon strate the ability of this machine. It is fast enough for anybody and more powerful than any other machine. The Eldridge-Beebe Auto. Co. carry a com plete line of automobile accessories and sundries.

The finest contour of a female face, the sweetest smile of a female mouth, loses something if the head is crowned with scant hair. Scant and falling hair, it. is now known, is caused by a para site that burrows into the scalp to the root of the hair, where it saps the vi tality. The little white scales the germ throws up in burrowing are called dandruff. To cure dandruff permanent ly, that germ must be killed. New bro's Herpicide, an entirely new result of the chemical laboratory, destroys the dandruff germ, and, of course, stops the falling hair, and prevents baldness. Sold by leading druggists.
