This statement is made because engine operation causes

These garages and dealers use Calol Flushing Oil, the

of fresh oil used. The cleaned crankcase is refilled with the

The free tuberculosis clinic at
Corvallis the 17th, was successful in
reaching mfany patients. Twenty
nine were examined, 16 were found
tuberculosis and nine were in Im

This was a high percentage for the
community and was an eye-opener
to existing conditions. It is the plan

RIDE ON SUNBEAM EXPRESS
Journey That Would Be Remarkabl
for Speed and for Wonder
Seen Along the Way.
Emlle Belot, the French astronomer,
suggests that. If one were able to
straddle a light ray (which travels
186,000 miles a second) and thus voy
age through space, observations along
the route would be exceedingly Inter
esting. It would take only a little more
than a second to reach the moon and
In 4 minutes and 20 seconds one would
arrive at the planet Mars. One would
get as far as Jupiter In 35 minutes,
to Saturn In 79 minutes, to Cranus In
2H hours and to Neptune tn 4 hours.
On the way one would come across
a great many comets without tails
nebulous bodies of spherical shape
which are rarely seen from the earth.
It would take two years to get out
side the sphere of the sun's attraction,
and by that time our orb of day
would look like nothing more Import
ant than a big star.

The Characterless Derby.
The derby was as void of character
as an Iron pot, yet Mr. Howells wore
lt for a time. Can one fancy Mark
Twain In a derby hat? Walt Whit
man always wore a broad-brimmed,
gray, soft-felt hat. One thinks of Lin
coln with a stovepipe bat on, as he
wore this In most of bis pictures.
Roosevelt liked a wide-brimmed felt
hat, like that of the cowboys. While
he was President 1 once saw him go
ing to church with a shining silk hat
on his hesd. The first time I saw Em
erson he had on a stovepipe hat one
much the worse for wear. He proba
bly never wore any other kind. John

that 85.10 per cent of the French peo
ple have chestnut hair. The blondes

per cent of the population. Pure black
hair Is fonnd in 1.8.'i per cent that Is,
slightly more frequently than red hair,

0.72 per cent of cases.
