the only distinction between one Jap

the artists are particularly careful to
make the nose of liberal dimensions.

2,000 MILES THROUGH
THE DESERT OF OREGON
IN AN AUTOMOBILE
W. R. Parker, Crack Rifle Shot, Completes
One of the Most Remarkable
. """ Trips Ever Undertaken.
Located in the interior of the State
of Oregon is a dreary waste of sand,
absolutely barren and with long
stretches of 50 to 90 miles between
water. For days at a time, at this
season of the year, the traveller over
this vast expanse of unproductive land
braves the scorching enervating heat
of an almost tropical sun, without
having the monotony of his journey
broken even once by the sight of a
single form of life. It is a most
arduous and trying journey at best
when one's means of conveyance is
especially adapted to the trying con
ditions that must be overcome.
It was over 2,000 miles of this desert
that Mr. W. R. Parker recently
travelled in a Chalmers-Detroit an
almost incredible feat. At times he
reached altitudes of from 3,000 to Q.ono
feet, and some of the towns at which
he stopped were anywhere from 100
to 300 miles from the railroad. Sev
eral of these had never before been
visited by any one in an automobile.

sentative of the Remington Arms

shooting ability at every stop. Some
of the feats performed by him seem
well nierh impossible. Using a Rem-'in'ton-U
M C .22 Repeater, with sight
obstructed or covered, he hit objects
or targets thrown into the air. He
also shot flying targets with a Rem-ington-U

after they had been thrown straight
out, making the shot infinitely more
difficult. He varied this particular
feature of his exhibition by turning
the gun upside down and firing His
aim is so infallibly accurate that he
seldom or never misses.
Another of his remarkable "stunts"
is to hit a single target, holding the
gun upside down, and then covering
the gun, to send a shot flying into
another. He also doubles with the
gun upside down.
Using a .38 revolver, he hit small
flying targets, glass discs, washers,
etc. Removing revolver from holster,
after throwing the objects into the air,
shooting a .38 revolver and sighting
with mirror, he split cards held edge
wise. In addition to this, he performed
other equally remarkable feats, too
numerous to mention.
A particularly spectacular piece of
work was shown when he ejected
two empty shells from his pump gun,
one immediately after the other, and
sent a shot into both while they were
in the air just before they struck the
