Why not buy; MICHEUNS and then proceed to forget your-tires, -except to- see . that they are properly in flated once a week, at least ? Following an Investigation by a cor oner's jury, a verdict was returned to the effect that Capt. J. si Powell, the aged Confederate veteran, came to his death from an unavoidable accident. This return exonerated the driver and passengers in the car which figured in the injuries sustained by Capt. Powell, and which, later caused his death. ' The funeral of the old soldier will take place at 5 o'clock Sunday after noon, the Interment to take place in St. John's cemetery. Major Jas. M. Tate, who is . chaplain of the First Florida brigade, will, conduct the ser vices, at 1115 West Belmont street. - The first report had it that the ac cident" victim was Capt. Elijah Powell, but this was based on Imperfect in formation furnished. The old gentle man whose death took place six hours after, figuring in the accident was the above named, and his age was yester day given by a . relative as 93 years. He had been . a citizen of t Pensacola for many years and was widely known here , The " coroner yesterday developed the fact that Mr. Hartsfleld was not driv ing the car at the time of the acci dent. s He was sitting on the back seat of the car with a negro prisoner he had arrested on a charge of aggra vated ' assault ' at Millview. Another negro, ' a prisoner at the county Jail, but who is a trusty about the pace. was at the wheel, and immediately upon' the', fact becoming known that Capt. , Powell had passed away, the negro was placed under arrest and locked up. Even " after ' the jury had returned a verdict the negro was silt kept in a cell, as the officers at the jail expected that relatives might want to take action over the jury's re turn. i - Mr. Hartsfleld, speaking of the acci dent yesterdaystated that he noticed Mr. Powell about to cross . the street, and the old gentleman seemed to hesi tate about going over. The . car was ordered to , go at a very slow speed, and the orders were being carried out, as. was attested by the fact that when Mr. Powell was, struck and fell, the front axle, of the. car hardly reached him. ; It was iiot true, it . later devel oped,' that the car had passed over the body of Mr. Powell. On the contrary it seems.: as if he realized when too late that there was a car approaching and he acted as though he would shove it away from him . He placed his hand on the hood and this caused him to fall backward,, his head striking very hard on the brick paving. In the fall, it was also ascertained, one of his arms was broken, and when this Aas discovered" the county 5' physician was summoned.,- Upon the . latterJs arrival it was seen that it was a hospital case and the sufferer was taken into Mr. Hartefleld's car and hurriedly conveyed to the hospital, felx hours later he died. Relatives outside! the city were notified by wire last evening of the old gentleman's death. ' Confederate veterans will have charge g of" the funeral services today, as the following will explain! Attention, Confederate Veterans AH members of Camp Ward, U. C. V. and visiting veterans, are request ed to attend the funeral of our late comrade, J. 6.

Favorable war accounts put cotton higher to the extent of 6 to 10 points around the opening call today, but realizing sales met the advance together with mod- erate .short selling based on rains in the belt, resulting in a reaction. At the end of. the first half hour of busi ness prices were 4 to 5 points below yesterday's close. . Less pressure to sell was felt in the afternoon , and the market made a Tires That Stand Up The average car is called upon this year to do more work and harder work than ever before.

"Iast night when he saw his troops on the heights domi nating Soissons on the southwest, Gen. Mangin smiled," says the correspond ent of the Ldberte. "Premier" Clemen ceau was there and warmly shook the general's hand. Was it the presence of Americans in" the neighborhood which . gave his - handshake especial strength, evincing emotion and confi dence? " ' '! :"' :.."'? " ' . "On his return from the front .Pre mier Clemenceau said to his friends: I have shaken the hand of the hap piest man in the world." . , Late yesterday . the premier also viewed the divisions commanded "by General Degouette. A violent storm which burst shortly before the hour set for their dash yesterday was fa vorable to the Allies. Thunder drowned the. noise of the shells, while a torren tial rain drove most of the Germans holding the enemy lines into dugouts where they were surrounded before they had learned of the. Franco-American advance. - SWEDEN TRYING OUT ? NEW TYPE LOCOMOTIVE: Stockholm, - July 18.
