-While I am naturally pleased with

performanc. of his vehicle In th. San

"Numerous benefits will com. from
th. general adoption of th. automobll.
for all purposes. Tber. Is no doubt
but that th. tlm. will com. when
horses will not b. allowed oh city
streets, any mora than cow. and piss

of time. To put It differently. It Is
equal to multiplying; th. width of our
treat by eight. This Is because th.
motor truck takes up only about one
third th. room In th. . treats aa th.
four or stx-bors. team necessary to
haul aa equal load, and will run at
least three time, aa fast. Thla speed
will come about when tb. borsea cease

The horse In th. city can no mora

Tn farmer who baa a large amount
of haullnc to do will have bis horses
for plowlnjr and other work about th.
farm for which no motor davleo haa

provement of roads, which la coins;
ahead rapidly ail over the country, the
farmer, ever on th. alert for a new
method of savin- money, will quickly
recognise th. economic value of th.

They met In the Hotel Seattle recently
and Shields made th. declaration that
he wanted an automobile.
Now It happened that Wright had an
0 Stoddard, which he hsd been using
continuously sine. the'Sumsner of 107,
and wanted to get rid of It.
"1 have an auto that would b. Just

Two Football Star. Out of Game and

Corvallls. Or Oct. 14. (Spe
cial.) The first secret-vractlce of the
football squad at the Oregon Agricul
tural ColUse held last night proved
a serious blow to Coach Lolan's aggre
and to b. driving It myself. Winter
motoring has always seemed mora
glorious to me than tha Summer sport,
for tb. air la so much more crisp and
bracing. Sine. I hav. taken up driv
ing again, th. past few weeks, I hav.
been In splendid health and spirits.
If soma of the Portland who
hav. automobiles know tha keen de
light and th. Invigorating effect of
being out In th. open In this crisp Au
tumn weather, and how much benefit
It wonld be to their health and spirits.
I am sure they would get away from
their steam-heated homes and apart
ments. "Winter motoring Is a sport which
th. women of th. East cannot enjoy,
on account of the snow and the In
tense cold, and wa ought - to appre
ciate mora th. opportunities In our
climate. A cover and curtain protect
on. snugly from tha Oregon rain, and
th. tonlo effect of th. keen, rain
washed air Is not only delightful, but
very beneficial, clearing th. brain,
leavening the spirits and Invigorating
th. general health."

a sprained ankle and will ba out of

members of the second team. The past

Thursday night, when the aggregation
was turned loose against the regulars,
worked a series of plays for big gains,
apparently having the first team men
at their mercy. It waa In this scrim
mage that Captain May waa Injured.
Although Dolan has an abundance of
material on hand, misfortune seem, to
be claiming the best men. At the be
ginning of the season May and Even
don formed a neucles for a strong dele
gation, but their loss may necessitate
soma unexpected changes In the lineup.

perience, her first long auto Journey,
and aays ah. will take advantage of
every opportunity, offered for motor

"I waa always In dread of a long
automobile trip," said Mrs. Schults. at
the Oregon Hotel last week, "but after
the ride up the coast I found It waa th.
most enjoyable form of outing I hav.
ever experienced. Instead of being
a severe trip it was a pleasant one alj
