. No city in the world has greater
attractions for drivers of motor cars
than Daytona. When automobilists
would lower speed records, they come
to Daytona Beach, to the mid-wint'er,
meets, of the Florida East Coas.t Au-
tomobile Association. The wonderful j
speedway is a stretch of beach 300
feet wide at low water, level, smooth,
almost as hard as asphalt, and extend
Ing twenty miles, without turn, break
or obstruction. Here the driver has
before him an open course which is
absolutely safe, and is unmatched for
Straightaway driving. It is this qual
ity which gives the course interna
tional fame, and makes it the mecca
for automobile speed enthusiasts the
world over. The Florida mid-winter
meetings-is the most important exent
In the automobile year. Marvelous
records have been made oh this
course, and today it is without a
parallel for straightaway racing. Ev
ery record in existence is now held
; by the Daytona Beach course. j
The annual international rae
' meets on the Daytona Beach are held
Tinder the auspices of .the Florida
East Coast Automobile Association.
The Association was organized and
i:. conducted solely for the promotion j
of the sport, and is maintained by the
dues of the members and entry fees
raid by competing: sportsmen. The:
record trials are open to the world,
and thus the meet has an interna
tional character. Foreign countries
are represented, both among the pa
trons and the contestants. The Asso
ciation has a most attractive and com
modious club house on the beach, di
lectly opposite the half-way post 6f
the twenty-mile course. The, club has
a membership of two hundred, and
among them many prominent and
well known people.
The sand of this famous speedway
is composed largely of the shells . of
the coquina clam, or Donax, peculiar
to this part of Florida. The shells
are about one-half inch long and very
thin. For ages nature has been roll
ing them up, washing them back into
the surf and pulverizing -them. Ex
amined under the microscope each
particle is round, unfit for mortar,
the builders say, because its
together;, yet, strange to contemplate,
the mom'ent a wave leaves these
cund particles settle down into a
cement almost as hard asV asphalt,
beyond the comprehension of one
who has not seen it. Surely it must
have been made for the automobile,
for, regardless of weather conditions,
there is no mud, no dust, tires are
never heated owing to the moisture,
and exploded tires are unknown. Here
too, the great dangers qf road and
track racing are entirely eliminated,
and man can never build a road as
hard and smooth. Repairs are un
necessary, as twice each twenty-four
hours it is entirely, rebuilt by the
tides. Immense holes may be dug,
bat the next tide hides every trace.
Being almost level with an average
rise and fall of only two feet and
nine inches at extremely low tide,
this beach is from 300 to 500 feet"
wide, and can be used from two hours
after until two hours before high
tide, thus giving an average of sev
en to eight hours for automobiling
some part vf each day.
The automobiling opportunities are
by no means confined to the beach.

Daytona, and much attention has been
g;iven to the making of good roads.
Tbe hard roads in and around Day
tona are famous for their excellence
ynd attractiveness. They lead in
many directions, passing through
charming scenery and reaching many
interesting points. One penetrates
dense tropical forests, leading to an
cient stone ruins; another follows
the river to a modern plantation, hos
pitably thrown open to inspection. A
favorite route Is north on the Ocean
beach to Ormond and return by the
Halifax river j road; or from Daytona
one may go to New Smyrna by the
new hard shell road, which, for fif
teen miles, closely follows the west
bank of the j river. All these roads t
are adapted to the automobile, and

increased number of machines.
A new hard-surface road has re
cently been completed between Day

Women's Curiosity In a Shoeshop.
"Women a re proverbially curious
said the sbot salesman, "but I think
they show it! more in a shop of this
sort than anywhere else.- At times
it's hard to get a customer's attention,
she's so Imsvj watching what the wo
men on either side are buying. And
when a sale is completed and a woman
walks out with her new boots on.
watch the others. Every eye is fixed
on the jev.ly clad feet, and if the
wearer happens to be smartly dressed
there'll be a sudden demand from the
others to be showu shoes of the same

women are so particular about not
