BY AUTO SPEEDERS
Complaint has been made in fhe
residence section of. automobile
speeding and during the past few
days several accidents have been
narrowly averted by carele3s chauf
feurs. On Twelfth street near the
junction of Washington street a col
lision nearly occurred between a mo
torcycle and an automobile Sunday.
Many of the drivers of the automo
biles fail to blow their horns when
there is danger. Children playing in
the streets have been endangered. A
city ordinance fixes the maximum
sped of autos in the city at eight
miles an hour. Residents are com
plaining of the chauffeurs allowing
exhausts from the engines, which
makes unnecessary noise. .
BITULITHIC PAVEMENT SATISFACTORY
Officials and Property Owners alike
There is no more satisfactory way
of judging the merits of any particu
lar kind of pavement than to compare
the amount laid year after year in
the various cities where the pave
ment is subjected to all kinds of con
ditions. The varying climatic condi
tions of the United States and Can
ada, from El Paso, Texas, on the
South, to Edmonton, Alberta, on the
North, and from Atlantic City - on
the East to Portland, Ore., on the
West, afford a severe test.
Officials and citizens t alike, in over
250 cities of the United States and
Canada . recommend Bitulthie pave
ment, where this class of pavement
has been in use and the number of
yards laid and contracted for has in
creased at a phenommal rate during
a period of ten years. Cambridge,
Mass., an extreme Eastern city, shows
an increase of approximately 110,000
square yards since the year 1901, and
Portland, Ore., 'an extreme Western
city shows an increase of 1,500,000
square yards in a like period.
Throughout the United States tts
progression of a city can almost be
determined by the use of Bitulithic
pavement. Information gathered from
city officials and unprejudiced busi
ness men in the various cities con
cerning Bitulithic pavement, entitles
it to first consideration because of its
many admirable qualities.
The Tarantula. "
The sting of the tarantula (a name
derived from Taranto, a town In
Italy), the most venomous of spiders,'
was-popularly supposed to produce a
disease called tarantism. which could
be cured only by music, or dancing,
and the dance wbjcb .cured it was
called tarantella. You can see the
peasants dance the tarantella now. but
without waiting for spider bites. -

One November day I started to walk

Just given a lecture, to the town of B..
where I was to give one that night.
The weather was Indian summer and
delightful. Some of the trees were late
in shedding their leaves, and the woods
were here. and there still decorated
with patches of scarlet, brown and
On emerging from a cut through
which the wood ran I saw a man
walking abend of me. I don't mind a
companion now and then in my walks,
so I hasiened my pace and caught up
with him. I fonnd him to be about
thirty years old, dressed in shabby gen
teel clothes and of an intellectual cast
of countenance. I addressed him,
speaking of the beauty of the scenery,
the autumnal glow and the invigorat
ing atmosphere. He responded appre
ciatively. After chatting awhile on general top
ics be asked me where I was going,
and my purpose to give a lecture that
night at B. on astronomy came out
He said that he had always had a de
sire to know something on that sub
ject and regretted that bis education
had been neglected, for if it had not
been he would certainly have devoted
some time to the study of the stars.

It occurred to me that this would be
a good opportunity to rehearse my' lec
ture. My subject was to be, "The So
lar System." and. beginning with the
central orb. I gave Us dimensions and
weight and then passed to the plauets

ing with an account of the discovery
of the farthest. Neptune, by means
of the perturbations of Uranus, then
supposed to be the most distant satel

ily absorbed all I told him, though, be
ing expected to lecture to a popular
audience, I did not enter upon the
marvelous development of knowledge
of the constitutional ingredients of our
system with the interpretation of the
lines on the spectrum. In other words,
I contented myself with stating the
simplest truths known half a century
ago and within the grasp of ordinary
Now and again in his comments on
the information I gave him my com
panion astonished me by an observa
tion indicating a natural aptitude for a
subject of which he was ignorant. He
wondered how the heat of the sun
could pass through realms of space in
finitely cold without being lost. He
asked if we were sure that Neptune
was the most distant planet of our sys
tem. These and other points he sug
gested convinced me that if he were
uneducated he at least possessed an
original or at least an inquiring mind.
While we were conversing I felt a
giddiness to which I am subject and
which is always followed by a disabili
ty for either hours or days. My com
panion kindly guided me to a farm
house beside the road and, ministered
to my wants. I told him that I was
very much troubled at the prospect of
not being able to keep my engagement
to lecture, and in order to help me out
at the difficulty, since be was going to
B., he offered to call on the manager of
the course and explain my unfortunate
position. 1 told him to say that past
experience bad taught me that I would
not be able to lecture the same night
even if I were able to get to B.. but the
lecture might be put off till the next
evening or such time as I had recover
ed. He promised to bear my message,
but put a damper on my anticipations
by asking for a small loan. I gave him
what he asked.
In the course .of a few hours I fell
so much better that I made a bargain
with the farmer with whom I was
lodged to bitch up a team and drive me
into B. I would reach the town too
late for the lecture, but that would
have been postponed anyway.
On driviug into B.. which I reached
about half an hour after the hour set
for the lecture. I was surprised to see
the hall in which it was to be given
illuminated. I asked the farmer to pull
up. I got out and entered the hall.
To say I was astonished coneys
little idea of my condition. There on
the rostrum was theman who had
taken my message, speaking easily and'
gracefully on the solar system. In
short, be was delivering my lecture,
but so much" more easily and graceful
ly than 1 could have done it, so en
riched with enlertaining facts and
with so much poetic inspiration, that 1
sank into a back seat and listeoed
No one present had ever seen me.
The man had palmed himself off for
me and was speaking for me far better
lhan I could have spoken for myself.
When he came out 1 joined him. He
felt very uneasy and drew me aside
as quickly as possible to tell me that
lie had not been paid for the lecture
and had no idea of perpetrating a
swindle. j -
He turned ont to be an Oxford grad
uate who had come to America and
got run down. I took him with me to
my college and succeeded in getting
him a chair which for awhile he filled
ably. But there was a screw loose in
him. . One day he disappeared, and 1
never heard from bim again.
