cal chapters of the Daughters of the
Confederacy to-day made unusual de
mands at the office of Senator John
Sbarp Williams for copies of his
speech on the bonus. Employees of
Senator Williams' office wondered
why his remarks on the bonus should
be thus enthusiastically sought. The
answer is in the extract with refer
ence to "sentiment in government."
. Reading this to-day Representative
Hull, Republican, of Iowa, said that
it was a pity that such a man as John
Sharp Williams should voluntarily
retire from public life, because his
utterances are uniformly an inspira

This case has attracted much at

this end of the State being employed
on both sides. In a raid made by the
county officers in Madrid Bend last
January, Whitsett was found with a

their stills captured and brought in.

Vital Parts of Motor.
The general motoring public is
paying more heed to the motors in
their automobiles now than they ever
have in the past, according to state
ments made by leading automotive
engineers. The desire for good look
ing bodies and details which add to
the comforts has not lessened a bit,
owing to this added motor interest.
"Probably the most interesting
part of the development of this de
sire of motorists to know their mo
tors is the keen appreciation of good
working parts which cannot be seen
or heard while in the engine," one
engineer recently stated.
"Motorists are beginning to realize
that the three vital parts of a motor
are in the cylinders, the piston
rings, pistons and pins. By renew
ing these parts inside cylinders which
have been reground, a motor may
now be made practically "good as
new." Shops are springing up all
over the country for doing this work.
Expert machinists are giving their
entire tme and attention to it. Spe
cial machinery and tools are re
quired; with these, the expert re
pairman regrinds and sometimes re
shapes cylinders to a slight over
size and then puts in new pistons,
made oversize, especially for this
purpose. These, fitted with new pis-
