WASH1XOTON, D. C, June 22. (I.
N". S. ) A possible means of relieving
the economic depression of Chile, due
to the slumping of the nitrate mark

now under consideration by the I'hil

c-nsy access cnuld lie had from Central
Chile to Ruenos Aires nnd Rabia

coal and lumber In Argentina could
lie alleviated by drawing upon the sur

The consumption of coal In Argen

Mure than twenty landing grounds,
or air "parages," are now available
throilghout the country for Journeys
by aircraft, and a Inachine may be
hired to carry a pilot and two pas
sengers for $35 an hour.
As the particular sort of aeroplane
that is used for this purpone moves lit
an average rate of ninety miles an
hour, it means that ".super taxi"
transport through the air costs about
twenty four cents a mile.
Improved aircraft are nearlng com-
pletion for hire. They will carry four
passengers Instead of two for the same j
expenditure of power and at the same 1
rate of hiring-. This will mean that
individually, if a party of four hire a
machine for a rapid journey, the cost
will come down to not more than
twelve cents per mile.

Hart is tha U. S. Unco Tread, with a
long -established standard of service
among motorists who have an eye to
