Reld entered the coach where he sat ex plaining a life insurance policy to a, prospect, and, It la alleged, pushed a gun against Mr. Raid's body, and, drawing another gun fired thru the train. As tho train slowed down at Olrd ler and the conductor called "all out for Olrdlor," the man got off and as the train started fired Into It.

A RESIGNATION- I have resigned tho ofTico of Sher iff ot Knox County to take effect on June 7th, and for this act of mlno I have only one word to say. My health has been Rowing worso tor the last eighteen months. About six weeks ago I underwent a very painful, necessary and long delayed operation which has left me physi cally a very weak man. I am nd- vUed by the surgeon and my local doctor to spend several months at a sanitarium In hope of regaining ray strength. I realize fully that the last sit months have been a ho.ny eponso on me as Sheriff, and that tho next six months means a big leturn in revenue, (the cream of tho olllco Is just ahead.) which will enable my successor to employ a good force to assist htm In the uveoutlnli of ill? law. For eleven and ono half years f have been your seiv.uit. (eight years as County Court Clerk and three and one half jeais as Sheriff.) and it is for you to pus judgement as to how hard I worked and wh it wa. accomplished for that lahoi.

Back in 1915 car owners figured they were doing pretty well to ob tain 1000 miles, or even 3000 miles from their tires. Now with manu facturing processes at such a high degree of perfection, as prevailing In the Firestone plants, 10,000 miles, or more. Is nothing out of theordl nary. As a matter of fact a 30 x 3 1-2 Firestone Non-Skid Is now selling at the sonsatloual low price of only $13.95. There are good grounds for the claim that Firestone Tires are lower than many other necessities, and Hint their prices have been lowered faster, for a comparison of 50 other every day needs show that In the majority of cases the per cent of prleo i occasions is very considerably in faor of tires. .1. .1.

DOHT CARS SHOW SPEED Establishing a now South Ameri can long-distance irecord for reli able performance as well as fast time, a Dort car won the Annual Ar gentina Classic, held this year at Rafaela, North Argentina. In a field of sixteen entries, among which were one Vuuxhall, two Fiats and three Bodge cars, the Dort car romped In home the winner and established another record for American cars. This annual cross country run Is held yeaily In Argentina on tho last day of May In South American rac ing circles It is tho biggest event of the year and this year's long-distance race covered a distance of 392 kilometers or 244 miles. Tho course thru tho country con sisted ot nil sorts ot roads, which taxed the cars to the utmost. Of the sixteen models lined up for the start only four finished, among these being two Dorts. taking first and third places. A cablegram to tho Dort factory from the Lajous-Altoff & Co., Dort distributors of Buenos Aires, stated that. "In a field of sixteen entries, of which only four finished, the An nual Argentina cross country tour of 382 kilometers was won by Dort." The distance over country roads, thru mountain passes, was made in four hours and forty-one minutes. an aveiage of eighty-four kilometers per hour. This establishes u new South American long-dlstanco speed record and also wins the special prUo offered by the Automobile Club of Argentina -for regularity In per foinianco. In the entire distance the Dort required no adjustments during tho race A second Dort car finished third. This Is a clean sweep for thu Dort and establishes another triumph In South America for American stock touring models. One Proper Pride.
