When they readied TuHliu they had to stop at brother Charles to lei, the engine cool off, and Will O. thought the humnus needed cooling off too, so he hiked to an ioo ereaiii parlor to get frozen pudding for tho bunch; ho got tho stuff all right, but didn't havo money enough to pay the ice cream man, but was equal to tho occasion; took up a collee.Uon ami /nado tho rifllo.

That was a great Bight-—Bob Howland and his Mitchell roadster pulling the whole fire department, hose- cart included, to tho lire at Franx. Richter's. That Mitchell car seeniH to havo lots of power, Mr. (loo. N. AI wood broke two leaves of bis front right spring while touring the other day.

He had a string of talk about !iis new Hreo/o carburettor, claiming it has every other one beaten a mile, the price has been reduo- ed and a lot of other stuff. He hypnotized Frank Ulnbee and Frank believes every word he s;<id. Well, llisbee ought to know. Coroiui motor maniacs havo a great, scheme to boom the huHiricss in that neighborhood. You see there is a three mile boulevard near Corona and the automobile dealers of Southern California are trying to get this boulevard for a race course. Leon T.
