C.) harbor on the day following the issuance of the German warning. The sinking of this German vessel caused much apprehension in Washing ton following the report that all German vessels interned in the various ports of the United States would be destroyed by their crows. This caused the Navy Department to take extra precautions to prevent such oc currences by strongly guarding the interned vessels. The lower photograph shows one of the armored automobiles of the Na tional Guard of the State of New York, which is guarding the Ashokan Dam in Ulster county. New York, the maio? and newest of the metropolis water supply. This photograph was taken as the automobile was starting from TCinsrstnn v v "There will unquestionably be u hnrp advance In tlir price of used chin this spring," said Prank N. Sealnnd, assistant to the president of the Ohio Cadillac corporation. Mr. Sealnnd gnvo as his reason for tills assertion the unprecedented shortage of both materials and labor In the motor in dustry throughout the country and the consequent slow deliveries. "Hostde this, there arc many auto mobile buyers who can see a real ad vantage in purchasing u good standard make rebuilt car, because in such a purchase the big llrst years depre ciation in market value is practically eliminated. All dependable concerns now also give a guarantee on their rebuilt ears and the buyer is assured the same courtesy and service as if he had bought a 1017 model in their regular line."

Then after the motor is made just as good as new it is taken out and thor oughly tested. The car is then placed In the salesroom and sold on its merits and with the guarantee exactly as represented. UNITED STATES STILL HOVERS ON BRINK OF ACTUAL WAR Germany Has Not Yet Carried Out Her Threat to Sink American Merchant Vessels at Sight, and U. S. Is Waiting for a Clear Case of American Rights. Not knowing what a day may bring forth, the United States stands on the brink of war with Germany. Our gov ernment Is doing all It can to preserve peace, but that is not much. Since relations were broken off, hope of a peaceful settlement lias steadily declined. Washington offi cials are now convinced that Germany has no ideu of ceasing those acts which violate American rights. Mer chant and passenger vessels are being sunk at the average rate of 16,000 tons per day. In several cases It is reported that these deeds were done without warning and without care to save life; also that there were Amer icans on board. The facts, .however, have been uncertain and are still un der Investigation. President "Wilson 'Is resolved that hostilities shall not begin over any doubtful case. There must be a clear and unquestioned violation of Ameri can rights before the United States will fool that the time has come to take up arm-!. Hut, as the German submarines nre acting. It would seem that such a cave cannot be long de layed. It may come ijjiy moment. If we arc Involved In the war at nil we are In it solely to defend Amer ican rights on the high seas. Logical ly the war would be a naval one, dl locted solely to the protection of our sea rights, Copenhagen The Spanish, Nor wegian and Swedish governments have forwarded the central powers identic notes protestlng'ugaiiist "the barrage of certain sea zones."

Sled Merry Go Rounds In northern Germany wherever a lake or pond offers its smooth ice, the voung people make a sled merry go tound, which ends in a sort ot snap ho whip and affords a scene of great hilarity. A vertical shaft is stuck thru the bubs of two cart wheels and into a hole in the ice. The undci wheel serves as a turning base, while the up per one supports a cross beam to oni rnd ot which a string ot sleds is at tached. Each sled is boaided by a rid- ei, tne cross ueam is suoveu arounu by a dozen or so strong hands, and tho file of sleds swings around in an ever widening circle and at a high rate of speed. The end usually is a spectacular upset for all tho riders.
