P. H. Kuduer of tho l.'old Creek Mill

paradise, with mountain se.enerv as a
setting, and with interesting things to
see all along the road. Mr. Kudner

GREAT SPEED RUN
Jp the face of impossible road con
ditions, a stock Maxwell touring car,
driven by Ray McXnmnra, established
a remarkable record tho day following
election day, when it pounded its way
across Michigan, from Detroit to Kala
mazoo and return, in nino heurs and
forty-five minutes. The speedometer
registered 330 miles when the car was
checked in at Detroit at tho conclusion
of the run. The irvcrngo ' speed wus
35.9 miles an hour.
Tho route taken follows: Detroit to
Lansing, Lansing to Clrand iinpids,
Cirnnd Itapids to Kalamazoo, Kalama

was officially observed and checked by

No mechanical trouble was encounter

a terirfic pounding on long stretches
of rough road. The only stop made on
the long trip was at Kalamazoo, where

More than fifty per cent of the rond
was in tho worst possible shape for
touring. There were deep ruts, of fresh

adverse conditions, it is believed the
record made by McXamnrn and his
Maxwell will endure.- ' - r
Tho start was made fom Detroit at
3:15 a. ni. and the car was checked into
Detroit, at 1 p. m. just nine hours and
forty minutes after the run started.

One of the big features of the show
this year will be the fat classes in the
stock yurds proper. Eoch year has
demonstrated the fact that tho west can
produce some of the finest cattle, hogs
and sheep in' the country. Competition
will be very keen this year.
In order to house the show, the en
tire barn and pen room of the Union
Stock Yards, together with eight mam
moth tents will be required.: The main
tent is 100x200 while the others are 50x
200. This is housing the show in a sim
ilar way to, the practice' of the Scotch
and English shows, which have flourish
ed for many generations.
' A very important feature in connec

sales of breeding stock. On Tuesday

offering of Guernsey cattle from Edge

nfternoon there will be a combination
hog sale; Wednesday the entire day

OFFICERS AND MEN
Privates Get $3.75 a Month
Captains Pull Down $500
-Pay of Others
The public its general is of the opin
ion that officers of the state military
companies receive 25 per. cent of that
received by officers in the regular army,
and consequently local military men in
the state are over zealous in recruiting.
While the recent law does give the cap
tain of a state military company $500 a
year, yet out of this amount, he must
pay for his own equipment in the way
of uniforms, arms and ield equipment,
and moreover, must be responsible for
all property issued to his company. The
first lieutenant receives $240 and the
second lieutenant $200, but from these
yearly salaries, the lieutenants must
equip themsolves with uniforms, arms
and field equipment. , Enlisted men re
ceive owerfourth of the pay of the
regular army men. They receive free
from the government all-equipment, uni
forms and arm A corporal under the
new law receives $5.10 a month; first
sergeants $11.25 a month and mess nnd
and duty sergeants $7.50 a month. Even
the private is remembered by the gov
ernment, as he receives $3.75 a month
and a first class private $-1.20. These

THE UNIVERSAL CAR
There can only be one reason why Ford cars have sold and
are today selling from five to ten to one over any and all
motor cars made, and that reason is: It is a better car
from any and every mechanical qualification the records
of more than fifteen hundred thousand Ford cars prove
it. With the new large radiator and enclosed fan, steam- .
line hood, crown fenders front and rear, entire black
finish, nickel trimmings, it is a most attractive car in ap
