Johrmon, driving a thirty horne pdwer Cole touring oar, won the fuel economy tent of the Chlrago Motor club, which was run yenterdar over a lill-mlle course, running to Iake Geneva and re turn. "The Cole put up a most creditable per formance, averaging 23.6 mllea to the gal lon and earning a percentage mark of 2.8, which was figured out according to the formula employed by the motor club, divid ing the weight of the car by the gasoline consumed as expressed In ounces. The weight of the Cole waa S.B.'iO pounds, and It used ninety-six more ounces of gasoline than did the Hupmoblle, driven bv E. A. Hearne, which allowed the least consump tion of gasoline 5.S miles to the gallon. Wednesday evening of last week Dewltt entertained a number of his frlenda in an automobile ride over Council Bluffs and Omaha, looking for llalley'a comet. Mr. E. Thll Merrill of Detroit, Mich., gave a aplendid talk on Cadillac demonstration and Interchangeablllty of part at R. R. Kimball's garage, 202 Farnam street, to a large crowd of automobile owners and prospective buyers. Mr. Merrill had with him parts of all descriptions, such aa are used in the Cadillac motor, transmission and rear axle. He also had with him a full line of very fine Brown & Sharp plug and snap gauges to prove the accuracy ot different parts used in Cadillac construc tion. He described the wonderful system used to Inspect every part ot the Cadillac car. This great organization, with its mag nificent plant and skilled mechanics, is turning out forty Cadillacs a day in every twenty-four hours, and giving the con sumer, really, a 13,600 automobile for $1,600. The Pioneer Implement company of Council Bluffs Is making shipments of Puller cars to Melbourne, Australia. Manager John P.

Colonel Deright tendered Lieutenant Shackelford, the South Pole lecturer, a Stoddard-Dayton during his stay in Omaha. The lieutenant was pleased with Omaha and the Stoddard-Dayton is a pet favorite with him. He rode In a Stoddard in Cleveland and will no doubt tourevery city in which he lectures In a Stoddard. Inspection of the garage of H. E. Fred rlckson Automobile company indicates that It will be larger and much better auited for their large business than before the fire. The offices and salesrooms will occupy the same room aa heretofore, but the stockroom and workshop have been materially enlarged and by the installa tion of sky-lights throughout the entire building working conditions have been im proved. The scheme of decoration In the offices and salesroom will be much the same as before, viz: Massive oak woodwork and decorations in oil, the pillars being encased in French plate mirrors. New office furniture has been ordered and in dications are that the Fredrlckson company will have not only the handsomest quartera in the west, but one of the most beautiful in the country. The Massachusetts state law requires that all applicants for a license to drive an auto mobile on Massachusetts highways be ex amined by an examiner appointed by the Highway commlKslon, regardless of their road experience In other states. The law does not make ai.y exception, consequently when George Schuster, better known as "Around-the-world" Schuster, who has re cently accepted a position as head demon strator of the Boston E. R. Thomas branch, had his examination by special appoint ment, it was no surprise that a crowd of motorists of exceptional proportions was on hand. From all reports the examiner un doubtedly took more Interest in making inquiries regarding Schuster's wonderful record In the New York to Paris race rather than questioning his ability to han dle a machine, although he was compelled VENICE CAMPANILE RESTORED to pit a machine through Its paces before also a bathroom, dressing room and In , the he convinced the examiner that he was I rear ft complete kitchen, with conUing capable of so doing. There Is no doubt the I range, pnntry and scullery. London Mail examiners will report favorably on Schust er's application, unless they missed asking some of the set questions the law requires, during tfie excltment of handling such a famous applicant. This Yankee law would be a good thing In every state and un doubtedly prevent a great many accidents. Statistics show that the state of Massa chusetts has less than t per 'cent of the total automobile accidents.

The bored rich, in search of new sensa tions, have of late been turning their at tention to tho designing of freak motor cars. While, however, some of the Ideas which have been carried out nre extremely' novel and Ingenious, they are scarcely likely to become popular, for, as one writer remarks In regard to the latest thing in motor cars a littla auto cab which haj been mado to fit a wealthy American lady like a tailor-made contume, being only twenty-six Indies wide and fifty-six inches high "very few people want to be helped Into their cars with a shoe-horn eveiy timo they have hud an extra good lunch." Then, again, a novel motor car designed ar.d owned by a gentleman ot Calcutta simply adds to tho noise of tho ordinary motor car, which so often offends sensitive ears. On this motor car, which, by the way, cost 2,500, the usual bonnet Is cov ered by the enormous figure of a swan, the eyes of which aro composed of prism lenses, which aro lit up at night by electricity. The beak is made so that tho exhaust can be sent through it, causing a noise like the hiss of a swan. Met on a dark night It is liable to cause as much (right among quiot going people as a canadiati dummy horso car which was exhibited some time ago. The dummy horse was fixed to the front of the car, the horn being attached to the dummy's mouth, while at night the eyes were lit up, a pair of brilliant green and red orbi glaring at passing vehicles. Some of tho novelties In motor cars, how ever, take a more practical and useful shape. Among the cars, for Instance, pos sessed by the late king of the Belgians, who was a most ardent automobllist, was an elaborate gypsy van which contained three rooms a parlor and bed room and a room for the king's valet. The machine was capable of developing thlrty-horoe power, insuring a upeed of from thirty five to forty-five miles an hour. Altogether the vehicle cost 6,000. And talking. of caravans reminds one that the duke of Newcastle, some time ago, had the most elaborately fitted of traveling car avans built, which, however, was moved by horse "power. It contained a cooking range, piano, typewriter and a dark room, together with accommodation for three per sons, in the moderate space of fifteen teet by seven feet, and cost 1,500. ' Four years ago the Duke of Fife had built for him, at a cost ot 2,000, a 60-horse-power motor, which was designed as far as possible to combine the advantages of a railway saloon with the luxury of an apartment In a royal palace. At the back of the carriage was a couch with soft cush ions, upon which a passenger could take a siesta at full length. The seats were of the armchair pattern, and were so con structed that the occupants could look out in .any direction. The doors opened with nickel-plated handles; soft Turkey carpets covered tho floor, and among the fittings were ladies' companions and smoking fit ments galore. Among the wonders of the motor car show at Olympla four years ago were King Edward's specially-constructed shoot ing car and the Prince of Wales' picnic car, with folding adjustable tables for luncheon or tea. The French chocolate king, M. Menlcr, owns a wonderful motor car, which is a small hotel on wheels. It Is divided Into two parts, bed-sitting room, with secret folding beds, and a dressing room and kitchen, with every possible accessory for toilet and cooking. It reminds one very much ot the three-roomed fiat on wheels In which M. Fabreques, the well-known milllonalro automobile manufacturer of Marseilles, went for a novel holiday jaunt through Europe three year ago. This traveling flat is a combination automobile and home. It contains two sleeping rooms, which In the daytime can be converted into one large sitting room. There are An F.xect Copy of the Fnllen Tower Hallt ot Modrrn Materiel. Travelers who visited Venice after the great campanile collapsed eight years ago seemed to agree that the removal of the great tower Improved the appearance of the Plaxxa dl San Marco Immensely. The Doge's palace, the farade of St. Mark's, the buildings bordering on the square were no longer dwarfed and their Just propor tions could be admired. The salient point In the view of Venire from the sea, how ever, was lost with It, and the Venetians themselves, accustomed to a tower on the srot for eleven centuries and to that parti cular campanile for over 700 years, were Inconsolable. So It was decided to rebuild, and the completion of the new tower, which Is almost at hand, Is announced and de scribed In the London Times of a week ago. Externally the new campanile will be as exactly a copy of the one It replaces aa the ingenuity and patience of man can make It. The foundations were carefully examined, as A matter of course, after the eld campanile crumbled. It was found that of the five courses of stone which originally showed above ground half had sunk below the level of the square in 1.000 years, and It was thought best to leave that as It was. The ground has been strengthened 'all around, however, and a broader base made for the tower under ground. The utmost care was taken to obtain bricks of the same size and color ns those In the old structure, so that from the outside the campanile will seem to the Venetians Identical with the one it replaces. On the Inside, however, cement and Iron work have been employed to secure greater lightness and cohesion. If In the course df time the new campanile should give way, it will not crumble In a heap as the old one did, but will fall in a solid mass and smash w hatever stands In its way. The brick work Is all done and the work men have nearly finished the stone work of the bell chamber. The arcade of four arches on each side Is almost completed, and three ot the verde antlco columns which Were only slightly damaged in the fall have been put back In their former places; the capitals and lions' heads In the spandrlls they were obliged to copy from the fragments of those destroyed. On the east and west side of the square attic above the bell chamber will be set up the figures of Justice, which came down un harmed with the old campanile; on the other two sides will be erected the lions ot St. Mark, which tho French tore down in Bonaparte's time. The pyramid that crowns the campanile will be built ot Iron and cement Instead of brick, so as to Insure lightness, but it will be covered with the old copper plates and will look the same from the exterior. The graceful loggetta of Sansovlno will still decorate the base of the campanile. It was broken up but not ground to dust when the tower fell, and the pieces have been, put together with utmost patience and Intelli gence. Even his terra cotta group ot the Madonna and Child, which was smashed Into a thousand pieces, has been patched up, all but the figure of St. John which be longed to It, and which was beyond even Italian mending. Only one of the bells of St. Mark escaped destruction.' The other -four were cast again at the expense of Pope Plus X, who was patriarch of Venice when the campanile -fell, and are now ready to be put In place, How deeply the Venetians are attached to these Is shown by an Incident recorded by the Times' correspondent. When the bells were finished lat spring they were taken to the campanile workyard in order to be tuned. As soon as the music of the chimes was heard, "from Up to Up ran the cry. The bells of San Marco! The bells of San Marco'.' from the Mercerla, the Molo, the Rlva, everybody began to run, and In a few moments the piazza was full of an eager and enthusiastic crowd." The bells will not be up this Easrer, aa was hoped, but they will be ready to ring out on St. Mark's day In 1911. The campa nile will be fully completed before next year is out, and visitors to Venice will be then unaware, except from the guidebook, that anything ever happened to the old campanile that stood for night IsOO years. New York Sun. Letting; Nothing Escape. Rivers had been detained by a business meeting at the club and the hour was late when he reached home. "So It's you. Is it?" exclaimed Mrs. Riv ers, who was wide awake. "You've got some plausible excuse, too, of course. You were detained downtown by some neces sary, indispensable, Important, unavoidable, unescapable, urgent, essential and abso lutely compulsory and inexorable business. Of all the flimsy transparent, diaphan ous " "For heaven's sake, Lena," interrupted Rivers, whipping out his notebook, "wait a minute and let me Jot down those syno nyms. I don't know where you got them, but I can use every ene of theml Now go ahead again, dear, but please talk a little slower." Chicago Tribune. 6 AUTOMOBILE!
