Auto Tourist Who Has Driven More Than 50,000 Miles Gives Result of Observations. EO TWO GOOD ROADS ALIKE Dont Take Strange Road at More Than 20 Miles an Hour," His Ad viceCar Doesn't Drive Twice Alike In Any Roadway. little Falla, N. T. Archie Baker Huitrín to be a confirmed automobile tourist of long and varied experience. He saya he has driven upward of 50,- C00 miles In his 1916 seven-passenger dx; and the car looked it when Archie and bis family polled out beside the road Just west of Small Gulf, between IJttla Falls and Herkimer, to camp In one of the most noted of Mohawk Valley tourist parking places. Baker and his wife and a twelve- year-old son and ten-year-old daughter said that touring agrees with them. They gave the impression of having an independent income. "My experience Is that a lot of tourists don't know very much, and don't stop to learn anything, either," said Mr. Baker. "The result is, they have a lot of hard knocks. When we were coming into New York state. about 250 miles from here, we turned off down a side road to camp by Lake Erie. There was an outfit down by the lake which claimed they had had a lot of hard luck. They dished a wheel; they tore up a tire; they lost a tent off. the back end of the load; they slept cold nights, and they were Just about ready to quit. But, shocks! they won't quit. Nobody ver does quit once the family have gone to touring right the way it can be done. Their dished wheel in terested me. The man claimed he didn't drive fast, but he skidded, caught the weight of the car on the right rear wheel, and smashed it all a-blim. "This was on a strange road, out in Indiana, he said, and it sure did look all right. But it smashed him, and It was pure luck that he didn't roll ver. I asked him about the kind of road, and he couldn't tell me; said It was pretty muddy, but had gravel on It too. "There you are! He smashed up and was taught a lesson, and didn't know what the lesson was. The fact Is there are more than 200 different , kinds of good roads in the United States. Tve been on most kinds, ril recite a few of them mountain contract roads, stone water-bound concrete roads, oil ' waste roads, gravel, sand and clay, broken down stone roads, cut and fill crushed stone- surface, cinder, shell, bank gravel, beach gravel, desert two trackers, and so on. "No Two Good Roads Alike." "No two good roads are alike. Good and careful a driver as I am, I darn near rolled over out west of Salt Lake City last summer, skid ding in the dust dry, fluffy dust. Why, if I'd been driving 20 miles Instead of careful 12 miles an hour, we'd rolled end over applecart, and it was a good road, If you knew how to drive It. Yes, sir. There is not a road in all this United States, not the best, widest, finest, smoothest road, that isn't treacherous if a man's not used to it. I don't mean wild eyed hummers, but Just common folks like me. "If you don't believe It, you study the road accidents you come upon as you ride across the country. Half the skidding is done where the road type changes, where a man leaves concrete and hits oil surface or where he leaves the waterbound stone for bard pan. "A car doesn't drive twice alike on any roadway from New York to San Francisco. I know, because Tve made the trip. Where do tourists coming east bang up with trouble? It's when they come off bad roads Into good roads. You take the western part of New York state, and people leaving the good roads of Ohio after crossing ' WANT U. S.

He hits a sharp turn, and bingo! The nigh wheels drop Into the sand, and there's a big job for the garage in the nearest town. "Particularly speaking, let me say that the man who drives aspeeding over a road he has never driven be fore Invites death or disaster. I'm all right on my old home road. I hit up 40 miles an hour right along if I know the road. My car"ll stand it. But on a strange road, let me say, I'm one of those 15-mller boys. I didn't have to have an accident to learn that. It was just looking at the accidents and figuring on them that gave me the warning I heeded. "Now look't! Remember during the days when cars were delivered by the thousand over the highways, and you'd meet a fleet of a thousand cars all aew and all bound east or south or west to a destination,' because the railroad boys were laying down on their high-wage jobs? Do you remem ber bow many of those cars were smashed up, burned up, or were shook half to pieces? It was done by speed ing over strange roads. New Driver Apt to Be Careful. "It isn't the new driver who is trapped by different roads ; It Is just as apt to be the old-timer. New driv ers are careful; they learn around home, hit the same roads every day and learn 'em. When they get good on the home roads they start off, hit another kind of good road, and bing! Smash up! "It's Just that way all over. I dont begin to claim I'm an expert In all kinds of roads; I'm not. All I'm an expert in is keeping out of trouble. I've been through Berthoud pass, 11, 000 feet above the sea, and more than 140 feet below the ocean down in Sal ton sink. I know enough to go slow. That's what I know. "It's the good road that kills.

This decision by the governors has aroused a storm of protest. tries are controlled by foreign capital, a large part of which Is North Amer ican. It is estimated that the total cost of such an undertaking would be over $100,000,000 and that the cost In Uruguay alone would be $22,000,000.

They're caught on good roads, the way I said. Some pave ment Is deadly dangerous when it's dry, and some Is deadly dangerous when it Is wet. Take concrete, for example. There's no cleaner driving in the world than on concrete. This side of Buffalo, and here and there In New York and California, you have concrete roads. Now, when they are hauling hay for a bottom, or oranges out of an Irrigation project, there'll be about three rods of dirt on the con crete. It's apt to be clay. It's Just like daubs of axle grease on a rail road track. You hit that stuff going right along, feel it quiver, and try to rstralghten up. Your steering wheels slick around the easiest they ever did. You forget where your straight-ahead Is, and with the rear end of the car swinging ahead you hit hard pan again, and shoot off Into the chaparral, Or you climb the fence of the Buffalo county club, depending where you're at. Dry or Wet, Both Treacherous. "Dry roads are treacherous and wet roads are treacherous. There are more accidents in western New York from people coming off poor roads on to good ones than there are on rough country roads. "Where you know a road is danger ous you go slow and careful. Where you think the road Is not dangerous, but it is a death trap, you are in peril of your life. I'm thinking that when they have paved roads over the Rocky mountains there'll be a lot of acci dents because it seems so easy. 'Tve seen more than 200 wrecked cars beside the road. Tve seen the ruins of ten times as many at garages the country over. Not one but what came to an untimely end because of carelessness of some kind. And nine times out of ten the carelessness was because the driver was going too fast on a road he didn't know. You'll find at the bottoms of slopes in the Rockies big, beautiful cars, all ruined skidded on dust, on clay that looked solid, on sand that was roller bear ings, or on a long peeled log gutter cross. "No, sir! My boy, when you get your car, don't you drive over any strange road at more than 20 miles an hour, no matter how good It Is, and you'll find lots of roads where It's better to go under ten miles an hour than to go faster than that. From the Rockies to the Sierras I averaged sev en miles an hour GO miles at three miles an hour one day. And I passed two cars before dark that left me be hind in the morning.

Historically, they always have been, We began our independence with revolution, and incorrigible individual ism is the very warp and woof of American tradition. After the Involu tion, American history was very largely the story of the extension of the western frontier.

"May the best man win" is a cardinal point in our national faith ; and right up to the present time Americans have never been known as overfastidious in their recogni tion of success. And the history of America, it became necessary to live as a settled community, has not been so alto gether different. Socially, America has never been settled. The social frontier is still open to all comers, and it is our proudest American boast that this is so. But in no country in the history of the world have there been such comers. By natural selection thousands of these immigrants have been individualistic, for had they been of they would not have emigrated.

The ideal race is one in which women have about 40 per cent of the man in them; the men about 40 per cent of the woman in them. The man who is 100 per cent male is a brute, a hunter, harsh, unin spired, elemental. He has no regard for beauty, or art, or culture. He makes war at the slightest provocation, and wages the war of the jungle. He needs to be ripened, mellowed, civilized, balanced by the feminine gifts of sympathy, intuition, social grace, imagination, desire for beauty and art. The 100 per cent female is a useless, soft, clinging, incompetent crea ture,, characterless, spineless, ill adapted to bear the hardships and com plexities of motherhood. She lacks initiative, courage, strength, endur ance. She gains immeasurably by an admixture of man in her character. Imagine an evolution in which woman so approached man in character that she realized what some misguided women are aiming at "perfect equality." What Health Means and the Importance of Playgrounds to Children By DR. A. EDWIN We sometimes assume that freedom from disease or physical defects means health, but this is only one part of the story. There are thousands and thousands of children and adults that are not really ill and have no serious physical defects, but have only energy enough to drag themselves through life, to exist physically. They do not have a reserve force to meet the emergencies of life or to accomplish the things that are most worth while. They are destined to become ill from time to time and in most cases to be a serious burden to society. In order to prevent disease and physical defects and to promote right habits of living, which play such an important part in building up robust health, we must start with the children and devote more time to health education. And while I will concede that the need of playgrounds far overshadows it in importance. Health is gained in the out-of-door air and sunshine, and all the theoretical hygiene in the world will not produce strong bodies. People Fall in Love Because It Is the Natural Thing for Them to Do.

There is not one formula for for example, may excite by a wide variety of circumstances and condi tions, so love is capable of being awakened by stimuli equally diverse. After 30, the sediment of prolonged experience has settled over the instinct and often so solidified that toy tools will seldom suffice to break through to the emotion-bearing paleozoic stratum of human nature. After this age, f allling in love is no longer a matter of instinct. Common sense, good judgment, a truer perspective of life, tend to discount the enthu siasm and exaggerations of love's young dream and demand a firmer basi for the happiness to be won. A.

LIVE STOCK NEWS " PLAN USING PUREBRED SIRES Campaign Being Waged in Kansas to Replace Scrubs in All Classes of Farm Live Stock. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) The use of scrub sires is costing farmers of the Sunflower state $16, 000,000 annually, say live-stock special ists of the United States Department of Agriculture. Less than one-tenth of the farms in Kansas are using pure bred sires of any kind. Surveys were made in 20 representative counties with results showing the number of farms using purebred sires ranged from 8.3 to 11.6 per cent. Many com munities and townships reported no purebred sires in use. In one county surveyed there were two townships in which not a single purebred bull, stallion, ram, or boar was reported. In several counties where good purebred herds were found neighboring farmers were still using scrub sires. A large per cent of male offspring had been sold to go to A Scrub Cow Is Not Worth Her Keep. other counties or states. In some com munities an active breeder had placed purebred sires on the farms of many neighbors. For the most part farmers have failed to appreciate the advan tages of using a purebred sire to in crease the marketing returns from their live stock. These conditions, announced R. W. Klser of the extension service, Kansas State Agricultural college, are respon sible for the active better-sire cam paign now being waged in 20 coun ties and which will be extended to In clude all counties within the year. In every county object lessons on the value of the purebred sire in improv ing farm live stock are to be found, and often on adjoining farms. Meet ings arranged by the county agent through the county farm bureau and sponsored by the local live-stock Im provement associations are held on these farms and the people attending see for themselves the difference be tween scrub sire and purebred sire off spring. County agents directed by A. L. Clapp, the assistant county agent leader In charge of the project work. and assisted by the specialists of the extension service, are planning for in tensive follow-up work in those coun ties where the campaign was conduct ed. Associations are being organized for the purpose of advancing the cause of better live stock. Bull clubs, cow clubs, calf clubs, pig clubs, boar clubs, sheep clubs, and stallion asso ciations are in demand in every county. High land values, the market de mand for stock of good quality, the greater , earning power of well-bred stock, are responsible for activities In replacing scrub sires in all classes with purebreds. GENTLENESS IS GREAT HELP Loss Due to Digestive Troubles Caused by Excitement and Fear Can Be Avoided. The practical value of treating live stock kindly is discussed by a Virginia live stock owner in a letter to the Uni ted States Department of Agriculture. "All cattle buyers," he remarks, "know how great is the 'drift' in shipping cat tle. Very much of this loss is due to dieestive troubles caused by excite ment and fear incident to travel. "Keep all live stock as quiet and make them as gentle as possible and your feeding costs will be noticeably reduced. Try this suggestion with one litter of pigs." "It will abundantly repay any live stock breeder," he adds, "to spend a great deal of time going out quietly among his animals and letting them make the advancements. He will be surprised how soon he can begin to put his hands on them. After they realize his hands are not to be dreaded they will soon enjoy gentle rubbing or scratching. When animals are shel tered from annoying or exciting1 occur rences they digest feed better and it takes much less to keep up normal growth and fat production." IDEAL FOR PORK PRODUCTION Field of Green Corn and Soy Beans Furnishes Supply of Succulent and Nitrogenous Feed. Soybeans replace high-priced protein concentrates, and a field of green corn and soybeans affords ideal conditions for pork production by supplyinig suc culent and nitrogenous feed in addi tion to self-fed corn under sanitary conditjpns. Soybeans make better forage before the beans are fully matured, and frequently a farmer Is justified In turning hogs and 6heep in to the corn before either crop has matured, for the sake of the forage, even though he may sacrifice some corn and soybeans. Decrease of Live Stock. There was a big decrease of Uve stock on American farms last year. The future for breeders and meat pro ducers is bright Protein Supplement. Feeding buttermilk results In more .apld gains and is one of the best pro ein supplements for pigs. Dual Purpose Animals. Sheep are dual purpose animals wool In the spring and lambs in this fall. THIS MAIM DREADED TO SEE NIGHT COI Was So Restless He Couldn't Sleep and Daylight Was Always Welcome. "With the exception of a little milk toast, which comprised my diet for more than eight weeks, I could not eat anything," said Capt. Geo. W. Womble, residing at 103 Jennings SU Knoxville, Tenn., a highly respected citizen of that city. "1 am now able," continued Captain Womble, "after taking two bottles of Tanlac, to eat practically anything. I had a bad form of stomach and in testinal trouble for a long time and for months my condition had been such that I suffered agony. I got so I could not eat the simplest food. I tried doctor after doctor and all kinds of medicine, but nothing that was pre scribed for me seemed to do me any good. I had a terrible pain In my breast just over my heart and for weeks and weeks I got no relief. "I finally got so nervous that I ac tually dreaded to see night come, as I could not Bleep, and was always so restless that I would rejoice to see daylight come. I was also constipated all of the time. In fact. Ufe seemed a burden and I was so miserable that 1 was almost on the verge of despair. Several of my neighbors told me about Tanlac and advised me to try It. "I am personally acquainted with Mr. Dan M. Chambllss, of the firm of Kuhlman & Chambllss and when I told him of my condition and how I suf fered he advised me to begin taking Tanlac without delay and that It had relieved hundreds of the best people In Knoxville. I have now taken two bottles of Tanlac and am giving you this testimonial In the hope that It may induce others to take it. Since ' taking this medicine I actually f eel like I had been made all over again with the youth, energy and ambition of a sixteen-year-old boy." Tanlac is sold by leading druggists everywhere.

CUSTOMS FIFTY YEARS AGO Who among as would say to-day, l never use a Dentifrice, I never have to?" Yet Fifty years ago, odd as it may seem, not one person in 1,000 uaed a Dentifrice or even a tooth brush. So to-day, after more than 30 years of persistent publicity of Allen's Footaae, the Antiseptic Powder for the Feet, not many well-turned-out people care to con fess, "You know I never have to use a Powder for the Feet!" More than One Million five hundred thousand pounds of Powder for the Feet were used by our Army and Navy during the war. The reason is this: Incasing and confining the feet in Leather or Canvas Shoes is bound to create friction, more or less. Allen's Foot Ease removes the friction from the shoes, and freshens the feet. It is this friction which causes smarting, cal louses, coma and bunions. You know what friction does to your motor-car axle. Why not remove it from your footwear by Shak ing into your Shoes to-day, Allen's Foot' Ease, the cleanly, wholesome, healing. An tiseptic powder! Get the habit, as Bullions now have it.
