Tho latest proposition brought forth along these lln8s Is by Itcprcsenta tlve BUnton Warburton of Washington stats, who, tho American Automobile as sociation announces, contends for a sys tem of national military roads. Mr. Warburton proposes to make the tobacco users of the country pay for the buBdliur of these national highways through the Imposition of a tax so small that the smokers -will so right on amok ins as usual without consciousness of the great benoflt they nro bestowing upon the people of this country- The scheme contemplates trunk lines connecting the capitals of all states with the national capital and with one another and also with tho principal national, parks, the government to locate tho line between the capitals along the most feas ible routes, with the states granting to the government the selooted roadways, with the Improvements thereon. Would rrovlde ElKhtr Million Year. In this announcement Representative Warburton is Quoted as eaylnfi! "I pro pose to raise the fund by restoring the Internal revenue tax of 1879 on tobacco and net aside the additional Income from this source as a national road fund. Tho additional tax thus provided would amount to about $80,000,000 a year, a little more than double the presont Internal revenue tar on tobacco. If the proposed 35,000-mile road system should cost $30,000 a mite It would be paid for In about four years and In about five years at u coat of 128,000 a mile, "In JMjO. according to the reports of the Internal revenue bureau, the receipts from tho tobacco tax were 1(8,000,000, as (opposed to tf8,000,0l) had the law of 1873 4hon been .enforced. .Tyiilla the proposed increased tax - on' toNLcop might,' seem Jwary. as a matter of, fa6t .lt will not noticed by the consumer.

"In the Spanish-American war the tax n tobacco was increased to the amount of tax suggested, and I venture to aajr not one consumer out of a dozen ever knew ths tax waa raised and novor knew when ft waa taken off. "Tho proposed raise In the tax will not affect tho producer of tobacco, for one half of our tobacco Is exported. England .Imports one-half of her tobacco from Us; XYaaoe one-half Italy nearly all of hem. The prion is regulated by the foreign mat lest, much more than Is the price of wheat tuid corn, and Is not affected by the tax."

In every way, It batiiler year. ITavored from the tirrzzz 'In presenting its 1S13 product to the public the Marlon -Motor Car company of Indianapolis, haa given a fine illustra tion of tho importance of attention to de tail, Tho success of Its plan of making a oar of beautiful and unbroken line Is evi dent In tho favor with which Its various models have been reoelved. pne of .the unique methods adopted Jn carrying out tho scheme of plaaelnr appearanoe was the utilisation of a new running board Whloh aires for the accessories usually earried attached to the body or ohassls. 'The running board has been made deep enough to accommodate the lighting sys tem battery on the right side of the car arid the gas tank, If used, on the left side with -compartments for tools, Jack, pump and other accessories. Besides providing ft hiding plaee for what otherwise would become unsightly obstructions In the de sign lines, the running board, which is easily aooeasibla and dust and water proof, adds greatly to the symmetrical appearance of the car as a whole. ' Recognizing that' cars which appeal to the woman not only mean addec? sales but greatly increased popularity, motor car builders have left nothing undone clinch the approval of women buyer That feminine taste would dominate eor tain phases of design was recognised years ago, but the season of 1M8 has pro. duced a new set of oondltlont where, those makers who would hold feminine favor were obliged to go bsyond the details of interior treatment for women who merely buy and provide grealar eonvonUnee and comfort for women who drive, Undoubtedly the greatest simile achieve ment aiding women motorists has been tho Dorfootlon 6f the solf-stortlng BjTtotn In conjunction with the left side drive and oenter control. Without these features a, motoring trip unaided by man was almost sure to result in worJt that was not only difficult but undignified. Now, however, the woman motorist may stop and start as often u she liken without manna work. fMw may, for example, merely close a slmplo switch on tho dash and the motor is started by on efficient Mid sim ple electric motor generator, In addltlenj current is supplied for the eleotrlo lights, making it unnecessary for tho driver U loave the seat Dependable starting Is not the aril? feature whloh manufacturers are Bjvtnff greater attention. The eahtbll shows tha manufacturers are not only meellnH re qulrements as they are made Unowni hu they are anticipating many small neads. that were formerly overlooked In the ef fort to accomplish the big Uillisa, Another point showing, a stinly of wem an's needs while motoring is the simplicity of adjusting the foldlngseats in enclose cars. This careful attention to Pintill de tails reflects tho. Infinite, care given to; things of greater importance. PS, ANOTHER BIG DONATION TO HIGHWAY MOVEMENT INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Feb,. 83. Through Its president, R. D. Chaptn, the Hudson Motor Car company of Dafrolli Mlcli., has pledged its support to the Ocoan-to-Ocean highway movement by making a subscription of 100,000 fund now being raised by the automobll and accessory manufacturers and of the United Btatea for the purohare materials for thai rode highway whloh to span the continent from New York San Francisco.
