Two Holiday Jail Dinners.'
The Request that his jail sentence be
doubled was heard in Acting- Police
Judge Flood's court yesterday when
Patrick Connolly, found guilty of being
drvnk, asked that he be given 20 in
stead of 10 days in the county jail.
When Judge Flood sentenced Connolly
he remonstrated.
"Well, judge," said Connolly, "if you
give me only 10 days I will get out of
jail the 24th — the day before Christ
mas — and I will have no place to eat
my Christmas dinner. I hear they are
going to give the boys at the jail a
bully dinner on Christmas, and I would
would like to be in on it."
The judge smiled with the specta
tors, but Connolly reiterated that he
would consider it a favor to have his
sentence doubled, so the juJge com
plied with the request.
"I'll fret in on the New Year's feed,
too," said Connolly as he was led away.

..IT will be all right," said Bar Hook, "as soon as they get the new
1 licenses." i ,
I "'What new licenses?" asked a friend.
"Don't you know about 'cm? Divorce coupons attached-^^one with
every license and two for $10," explained Mr. Hook. "Great idea. Save time,
trouble and expense and promote matrimony."
"Sure it will," agreed the friend. 'Can't you see the sales go up? Coupon
marriage licenses for everybody. Come early and avoid the rush." ,
"Funny thing about marriage," reflected a third gentleman, who wore a
look of philosophic resignation. "You give a small gold ring about as big as
a 10 cent piece and you get a yoke. It takes 10 minutes to get married and
a yesr to get divorced. System needs revision. Ought to be better balanced."
\u0084 Which, being the reflections' of one undergoing that period of transition when
a man is neither married nor single, are worth recording. It is only through
the experience of those governed by them that systems may be proved and
reforms effected.
The long year, of probation weighs lightly on others, however, who are
serenely insensible of being nondescripts, in a way. Yesterday the mail
brought a long legal looking envelope to a certain young matron. She looked
at it, wondering, and broke the seal. "Why, it's my decree," she exclaimed.
"I'd forgotten all about it!" Fortunately, her lawyer had not forgotten, or,
instead of being "restored to the status of single persons," as the printed form
assures her she is, she might still be among the lost souls in matrimony.
It was the same young matron who secured her interlocutory decree last
year for desertion, which is one of the polite reasons that may be given for
divorce. When she had been through the ordeal of explaining her reason in
court, before a score of disinterested, but apparently fascinated, strangers, a
battered looking woman leaned toward the rather pale plaintiff. Bedraggled
ostrich plumes and an odor of gin were details of her nod of sympathy. "I'm
up against the same line," she whispered, as 1 one victim of man's perfidy to
All of which is idle commentary, with no particular significance.

Henry Stoddard, Treasurer of
Company, Tells Why Com
mercial Vehicles Pay
Some very interesting facts con
cerning the motor truck were glverl
bjUt yesterday by Henry Stoddard, the
treasurer of the Speedwell; motor car
company, who is visiting the city.
Stoddard has been making a study of
the commercial , vehicle, his company
having had two heavy trucks in con
stant operation 'before i£ '.was decided
to turn out the first one for sale.
Stoddard said:
"The heavy motor truck of three tons
and over is not cheaper to operate than
the horse drawn vehicle for short hauls
averaging less than J.O blocks in con
gested districts. What I mean is such
congestion as one sees during the busy
time of the day between Kearny and
Powell streets on Market street. The
constant stopping and starting with
.heavy loads uses up tires, fwhile the
engine is constantly using up gasoline
and»oil. • - . '\u25a0„.
"When you ca*n haul your load over
10 blocks without having to pull, up
about every block the big motor truck
pays, and the longer the haul the
greater the saving. -\u0084 \u25a0
"For congested districts the light
truck or delivery wagon is cffeaper than
horses. This has been proved in New
York, where several firms have taken
our touring car chassis and put on
commercial bodies. .The well made
car, if it does cost a little more, pays
in the end, for you get quality of ma
terial and workmanship, which is more
essential in a commercial vehicle than
it is in a pleasure car. .
"The businessman is rapidly coming
to appreciate the auto, truck and de
livery wagon, but a lot of men . who
can afford them are losing a lot of time
and money. You can put off buying a
pleasure car and not feel the loss, but
with the commercial vehicle it is dif
ferent. Every day passed without its
use means much money lost."
The Diamond -rubber company has
just received the following letter from
. tneyFrank K. Mott
-\u25a0'company of Oak
"It may be pleas
ing to you, as it is
gratifying to us, to
know of the exceedingly fine results
we have reecived from the use of two
Diamond tires used on our Rambler
touring car.
"These two tires had given us 11,070
miles each when we had them removed,
feeling that we had received sufficient
"We also have two tires on our new
Rambler, which 1 have given us 8,000
miles to date, with no trouble, except
ing a couple of punctures, and they
still look good for 2,000 miles.
"We desire to express our kind feel
ing for your tires in justice to you.
and will gladly act as references at
any time."
Mayor Mott Like*

The confidence of the older and most
stable automobile manufacturers in the
.continued prosper
ity and certain
growth of the in-,
dustry is evidenced
in the announce
ment by the Thomas B. Jeffery com
pany of the completion of a new giant
electrical power plant for the Ram
bler factory. .
The new engine room covers 6,000
square feet and the equipment has
been so installed that even its great
capacity may be doubled at any time.
There are four power units, including
a 1,200 horsepower Cross j compound
noncondensing alternator, 'with three
other units of 500, 125 and 100 horse
power each.
... The room, covers an area of
8,000 -square feet and includes- three
boiler units of 500 horsepower each,
with automatic stokers. A complete
coal handling equipment is now being
added. . „ .
Each, of the boiler units is equipped
with an individual steel stack five feet
in diameter, 125 feet high. . The area
of the boiler room permits of a future
complement of 3,500 horsepower, ior
seven such units as are now installed.
The construction of the entire group
forming the power plant is of concrete
and steel trusses, with fireproof tiles
for roofs. In addition five new build
ings have been added to the Rambler
plant during . year.
