PROBABLE BIC SURPRISE AT NEW YORK AUTO SHOW Rumored the Paige Motor Car Company Will Make Startling Price An nouncement in Connection With the Well-known Four "36" There is a rumor afloat in automobile circles that the Paige Motor Car Com pany is going to spring a big surprise at the New York Show by announcing a record-breaking price in connection with their well-known Four "36." Gossip lias it that this Paige model is the same car that was introduced at $1275. and that the new price will be $1075, retaining every single one of the high-grade features which it em bodied. If this rumor is correct, the an nouncement of the new price will be one of the biggest, sensations of the show. This Four "36" is the car that by its tremendous success and popular ity has brought the Paige Company from the ranks of the smaller manu facturers to its present enviable posi tion as ono of the ten leading motor car builders. The new Paige Six "46" will also be anno-inced at the New York Show, and will be on exhibition. It is claimed that this car sets a new Btandard of "Six" values at its exceptional price of ? 1395. The body design of this new "Six" is exceedingly striking, being of the "most advanced stream line type which is enhanced by the rounding body, ta.pering liood and "V" type radiator. The mechanical units of this car are worthy of note, namely: cantilever springs, Gray & Davis electric system, Bosch magueto, Paige-Continental mo tor, etc. The Paige exhibit will be unusually interesting to the individual buyers as the cars displayed are regular stock machines, showing exactly what a pur chaser buys. This is quite out of the usual run of such matters as hitherto manufacturers have spent weeks and even months in preparing their show cars, building them regardless of ex pense and loading them with every pos sible accessory, much of which is not included in the regular stock models. There will be oil display both a touring and roadster model of the new six-cylinder car, and similar models of their four-cylinder car. In adaition they will have on exntbition their four and six motor cut away so that every part of the working mechanism is ex hibited, this will give even the layman a clear idea of the mechanical features and will call attention to the character istic features of the Paige product. You can see at a glance the silent spiral gears that make up the drive for cam shafts, water pump, generator, etc. The motor is cut away so that the cylinder walls and pistons are visible, also the crank shaft and connecting rods. In fact all the vitals of the en gine are exposed to view.—Adv.* MOTORCYCLE NOTES Peoria. 111., 'is contemplating the ad dition of several machines to its motor cycle police squad in the spring. New Orleans motorcyclists staged a New Year's voad race to Oracle and return. Fully realizing the importance of the motorcycle police squad, Columbus,O'hio, is planning to purchase a number of ad ditional machines in the spring. February 15 to 20 is the date set for the annual motorcycle show- at Omaha, Neto. A motorcycle turkey hunt in the Menard country is being made by three riders of San Angelo, Tex., Will Mor ton, K. R.

A new motorcycle club has been or ganized at Annistou, Alabama, with 22 charter menvbers. The organization will affiliate with the F. A. M. The Argo Creamery Couvpany of At lanta, Ga.. has installed a motorcycle j delivery service for delivering fresh milk on special orders. > Motorcyclists of Detroit plan to re organize, naming their club the Detroit '-Motorcycle Cluib. They are also going to start a campaign to increase the ! membership to 200. "T have ridden 20,000 miles on my motorcycle without any mechanical troubles." says Frank >Havlii:hck, of Oxford Junction, In. C. A. Pete, of Des Moines, la., says ] he lias ridden his motorcycle 25,000 miles in two seasons, and at a eost of less than one cent a mile. Adv* Damage Done by a Hired Man In the current issue of '' Farm and Fireside" a i outributor gives an inter esting account of the losses that can be directly traced to excitalbie and high temipered employes. Ho tells the follow ing story of a personal experience on his own farm: "I an Ayrshire cow three years ago. She was what is called high strung and a. bit difficult to manage. But the fanner who owned her before me was a cantankerous oM cuss, as was also his aon-in-'aw who lived with him, and I calculated that at our place she would quiet, down. She did. My sou John and I handled her, and in three weeks she would stand to be milked. But I I hired a man, and he was not even tempereJ, and he had fights with that Ayrshire and she jtave less and less milk, and she lost nesh and I had to sell her for $25 less than I paid for her. "I discharged that hired man. "Why, he had nearly ruined two •te&lM, of youn>g Pinto horses 'by his bad temper; so I let the Pintos go too. He had tlhree celts which ha<l barnyarded it during the winter so afraid of him ■thai 'you couldn't get within half a mile of t'hem.' "Mow this man was one of the most efficient workers it has ever Ibecn my pleasure to see work, excetpt for his ner vousness and 'bad temper. He knew how to work. He wa« 'big and strong ami willing. He was not stable. It was as i'f he were continually yelling 'JBoo!' at every living thing on the place." REMOTEST HAMLET CAN SEE MOVING PICTURES Made Possible by Unique Combination of the Motor Oar and the "Movie" Camera, Products of Two American Industries The remotest hamlet can now have a moving picture show. This has been made possible by a unique combination of the motor car and the "movie" cam era, products of the two industries which have made the most rapid Btrides in Americau businoss history. The use of a car as the motive power for a moving picture outfit is the de cided innovation started in the course of the agricultural extension work be ing conducted by the Louisiana State University authorities for the benefit of the southern farmers. A short time ago the government ! furnished tbe university with moving pictures showing the latest methods of intensive farming. But as electrical ap paratus and lighting facilities were al most always totally lacking in the rural communities of Louisiana, where the pictures were to be shown, the farmers were forced to forego the educational campaign that had been planned for their especial benefit. In lieu of adequate electrical facili ties, the university officials finally solved the problem by attaching a small dynamo to the motor of an Overland car. A pulley on the front end of the crankshaft provides a base for the belt by which the dynamo is run, the picture machine being' attached on the opposite side of the car. outfit, which can be easily handled and operated by one man, was first used at the Louisiana state fair at Baton Rouge, where the pictures were shown in the open air. For eight days the Overland motor ran smoothly and without heating, although, of course, the car was stationary. The auto-stereopticon, as it has been unofficially termed, has attracted the favorable attention of officials of the United States Department of Agricul ture, who predict that the plan will be put into use in many rural communi ties throughout the country.—Adv.* AMERICAN MOTORCYCLISTS Tests Lincoln Highway Of great interest to motorcyclists is the test recently made by the Lin coln Highway Association of the new transcontinental route. Arrangements were made for each Lincoln Highway consul Ao cover the part of the route in his territory all starting at the same time. Thus practically the whole 3,389 miles was covered in "a day. Re ports from all of the consuls have not yet been turned in, but those so far received show the roads in fairly good condition, and very little difficulty ex perienced in negotiating v them. This means that future transcontinental tourists will be aible to follow a direct well marked route from ocean to ocean. It also means that a lomg line of automobilists and motorcyclists will' next summer take the trail to the Pananva-Paeific exposition. Better Than Aeroplane "1 hazard this coraiparison: That the motor bike is of much greater serv ice to the army in the field than is j the aeroplane." That 's the opinion of i War Correspondent Henry Beach Need- j land from the front. "The motorcycle ! has revolutionized signaling," continu-! es Xce-dham, "and has done away with j wig-wagging to a very large extent." Mr. Needham says That the motorcycle j is efficient, economical and speedy on the field. "It is everywhere and no where as much as at tiie front." Salesman Likes Motorcycle Last summer when a strike in the I mining town of Pittsburg, Kan., caused I the electric cars to 'be stopped, one I salesman, L. O. Atkinson, solved with i a motorcycle the problem of covering | his loute. And so much did he like the machine that when caT service was re | sumed, he continued to use the t/wo i wheeler. Complete 5,800 Miles When Miss Delia Crewe, the plucky | girl motorcyclist, who is touring the | world on her tw'o-wheeler, accompanied j by her dctj "Trouble" as hor only i companion, recently arrived in Pough | kecpsio, X. Y., she had covered 5,300 | miles awheel. This is probably the .greatest distance ever traveled by a I girl on a motorcycle with sidecar. And this is only a very small part of the trip which Miss Crewe plans to ac- I coinplish. When asked her reason for making this tour, Miss Crewe replied: j " Well, I love nature better than beau tiful clothes or luxuries, and I decided | that 1 would enjoy a trip of this kind i more than anything else. It is the call j of the road I suppose. Although I have j traveled a great deal, I never have de rived so much enjoyment from travel j ing as I have since I started on this j tour last June." Goes to the Front Word has been received that Alex Brash, representative of an American motorcycle in Scotland, has become a member of the First London Machine I Gun 'battery, under command of Lord j Lyvelen. Brasii says he used his mo torcycle with a machine gun hitched i onto it which fires 750' shots per minute. "We leave soon for the firing line," he continues, "and you'll hear from me again—miaybe." Fooled Doctors "Mv motorcyclo foo-led the doctors all right," says Ray McKee, of Par sons, Kan. McKee was threatened with tuberculosis. But instead of taking a doctor 's prescription, he bought a mo torcycle, secured outside work, and is now living out of doors as much as possible. The great improvement in the short time he has been taking this "medicine" convinces McKee that the motorcycle wil do the work, adv.* CHALMERS BUILT FOR QUALITY Also Combines Comfort and Luxury of tbe Highest-Priced Cars Robert L. Morton, manager of the Keystone .Motor Car Company, in speak ing of the Chalmers cars says: "They are built for those to whom quality is a matter of first concern, and have all the power, comfort and lux ury of the highest-priced cars made. In performance they will also bear com parison with the highest-priced cars pnd possess the qualities of flexibility, silence and vibrationless operation sel dom found in cars of any price. In looks, -comfort, size the Chalmers car is instantly impressive."—Adv.* URGES ABOLISHING "PINK BILLS" IN LEGISLATION Superintendent Pomeroy, of Printing Department, Recommends This as an Economic Measure, and Telia Other Ways to Save Money The annual report of A. Nevin Pom eroy, Superintendent of Public Print ing and Binding, for the year ending June 30, 1914, has just been made public, showing that the expenditures for the year were $387,007.75 and the appropriations $824,778.14, leav ing an unexpenl-iied balance of $437,- 770.39. The printing for the legisla tive session of 1913 was much larger iu volume than for any previous ses sion, and consequently more costly, and Superintendent Pomeroy recom mend.s that the printing of pink bills, — bills printed when introduced and be fore being acted on in committee, —be done away with as this would savo thousands of dollars of expense. The establishment of the Division of Dis tribution of Documents was a wise move, according to Mr. Pomeroy, and has already resulted in the saving of more than $50,000 to the State. Docu ments are not now being shipped in discriminately as heretofore but only as ordered. Attactood to the report are the following recommendations: "The Superintendent would recom mend that if possible the nest Legis lature abolish the use of the pink bills or reduce the number ordemi; that a law bo passed by the next Legislature providing for a reduction in the num ber of certain publications. "That no law be enacted for any special publication that does not carry with it a specific appropriation for such publication, the allotment of same and their distribution through the Division of Distribution of Documents, it h:u been the custom to pass laws providing for such publications without thought as to how they are to be paid for. The Superintendent has asked from the Legislature only such an appropriation as it is estimated will be necessary to provide for the publications already au thorized by law and such miscellaneous printing as it is estimated the Senate, House of Representatives and earth De partment may require during the next succeeding two years. Specie! publi cations carrying no specific appropri ation for the regular department work. "That the edition of the Fish, Game and Forestry Laws be materially re duced. Bach successive Legislature has been adopting a resolution pro viding for the publication of 150,000 copies of these laws. It is apparent that this number i s mucin larger than is required. According to the requisi tions filed for this publication it is evi dent that 100,000 copies will serve all purposes. "That an act be passed by the next Legislature permitting t'he Game Com mission to use a portion of the receipts from the sale of Hunters' Licenses with which to purchase the license tags. Under such an arrangement the Com monwealth would be permitted to pur chase such licenses as it may desire, not necessarily printed ones. These license tags, as at present produced, are rather expensive as each one re quires a change in form, thus consum i ing a vast amount of time and delaying | other work of the printing office. "The Superintendent in closing this | last report to your Excellency desires to take this opportunity to thank you i for tl(e great help you have alw-ays j shown in an effort to better conditions I and to save the Commonwealth any | needless expenditures on the public funds.'' Boring Thin Glass Everybody who 'has tried under stands how difficult it is to 'bore a hole in a strip of thin glass. The following nie'tlliod is said to 'be very successful: Press a cake of wet clay upon the glass and then make a hole through the clay of the desired size, laying bare the glass at the 'bottom of the hole. Then pour melted lead into t'he hole, and it will drop through the glass, making a round aperture.
