of the automobile: '"When,
last September, Charles J, Crlid

run of 1800 miles on steel rail&

rate of thirty miles an houi
through the mountains, it was?
heralded as a feat revealing-the
i evolutionary possibilities cf
automobiles for -railroads. Ii
was predicted at that time thai
.the twelve-hour trip from New
York to Chicago was near at
.hand. At that time Presidt-nl
Underwood, of the Erie railroad,
was experimenting on the track
rails with an automobile fitted;
with flanged steel wheels, and a ;
few persons realized that some
thing might come of these doing j
in the future. Yet all the whiln !
and before these feats, various
automobile manufacturers were
busy supplying specially con
structed cars to railroads. Ont
American manufacturer alone
iias built and delivered more
than 100 cars that are now in use
on railroads for various services.

A GOOD GAEDEN,
Did you ever stop to figure up
what part of your living each
year comes from the garden?
ff not, do it this year. You will
be surprised, that is, if.j'ou have
a good garden. If not, you will
wonder why you did not try to
do better. Nothing opens a
man's ej'eslike counting up
blessings he might have had if
he had done his part to win them.
The trouble with most of us if
we claim, and think we ought to
have, comforts we never have
been worthy of. This isjust as
true of garden stuff as anything.
