An Indiana Case Two Essentials Many Motorists Have Difficulty in Learning Should Be Studied and Practiced on All Occasions. One of the things that many motorists have great difficulty iu learning to do pf operly is turning' corners, says a writer in a New York exchange. It is difficult to coast around a corner at low speed, and if high speed is used the car goes too fast. The novice driver should practice going into second speed just before he reaches the corner ho is to turn, and then drive around at slow speed. Another detail everj- driver should learn and practice is the matter of signaling. The law states that the driver shall signal in some unmistakable manner which way lie is going to turn. The left-hand drive makes this easy. If the operator is going to the left he should hold his arm out in a horizontal position. This indicates to those hack of him they should not come up behind him ou that side. When making a right turn the car should be run close to the curb and the signal given by waving the hand in a small circle, with a forward swing, as if he says : "Come on up on this side. I'm going to turn the corner." The "come on" motion is not prescribed by law. but has become a custom of the road. If a sudden stop is necessary the hand should be held upward. This signal formerly was used by coachmen on the box and is well known to all users of the highwav.

WATER FOR COOLING SYSTEM Rain Water Is Best Because It Is Free From Mineral Substances That Clog Radiators. Not all car owners know that pure rain water is the best that can be used in the cooling system. This is because it is free from mineral substance-; which are present in ordinary water and which are deposited on the metal walls of the radiator, piping, jackets, etc.. to their detriment. When rain water is available, always use it. OF THE PACIFIC v Jf W-ssm Hril mMirM'Wr-T s&m I - - - V v : xcjf " W --if ;jt?J; v. : OPEH THROTTLE GRADUALLY If Accelerator Pedal Is Pressed Too Quickly Engine Sometimes Stalls Operator Should Keep His Presence of Mind. It is well to give the motorist a few words of advice ou a subject usually disregarded that of crossing railroads, writes William II. Stewart, Jr.. in an exchange. The all too usual method of crocs-ing tracks is to drive on high getir, throttled down. This requires a certain amount of gas. and if the amount is reduced too much the engine will stall. By shifting into second speed all such "danger is overcome. Then the engine is turning faster and it is not so' easy to stall. Furthermore, the car may be driven across the tracks at approximately the same speed. The impression prevails that the car may be speeded up more readily in high gear in the event of a train approaching, hut the distance is short and a full throttle opening on second speed will send the car forward with greater certainty. Why an Engine Stalls. This brings up a matter of importance, that of opening the throttle too suddenly. If the accelerator pedal is pressed too quickly the engine sometimes stalls. This is because th air valve yields readily to the increased suction, giving a sudden ruh of air before the spray nozzle can . respond with enough gasoline. Whether the throttle is ojmed by hand or foot the driver should pen it gradually enough to give the engine time to respond. No matter how great the danger may he. the throttle must he opened gradually. This does not mean to hesitate, but at a speed which will not cause the engine to choke he-fore accelerating. Dangerous Experience. Stalling the engine with a train approaching at high speed is a dangerous experience, to say the leat. There is no time to start the engine-, hut the operator who keeps his presence of mind-will use lite starter to pull out of danger. By shifting into low spe d ;inl pressing the starter pedal -the car is made to move forward slowly. Keeping this fact in mind, a driver may save his own life and the lives of those with him.

Wanderer, ,who was hanged here for the murder of his wife, Ruth, his unborn child and the 'Tagged stranger," confessed 'to jailer Feter Lawrence, the jailer said, that he had killed his wife and the "ragged stranger." The jailer said that Wanderer made the confession during the walk to the gallows. Jailer Peter Lawrence took the condemned man frm the death cell at 7:li, scon after sunrise, and in another minute the death march had started. I The trap was sprung at 7:19. When the death march started he walked with the mechanical stride that - has characterized his movements about the jail. With head up he took his place bei:e.nth the rope. Instead of proclaiming his Innocence or crying out an invective against his raptors. Wanderer opened his mouth and in a clear, voice sang a verse of 'Oh. Pal. Why Don't You Answer 3Ie?" When lie came to the word "tenderly" Ids spiritual adviser interrupted him, asking him to reieat after him: "f Lord, have mercy on my soul. The prayer had no S'oner died on his lips than the trap was sprung, the rope was tightened and Wanderer had paid the penalty exacted by law for the cold-blooded slaying of three persons in the vestibule of his home. Wanderer was arrested and confronted with evidence that he had carried both guns In the shooting. After idays of grilling he signed one of the most remarkable confessions In police annals.

'V i v ; m. i PROVIDES FOR BUT ONE LEVY Takes Place cf All Various War, Excise, Luxury, Stamp, Capital Stock, Telegraph, Transportation and Other Taxes. Washington, Oct. 3. A manufacturers" sales tax of 3 per cent was formally proposed to the senate by Senator Smoot (Rep., Utah). Senator Smoot explained that this would lie in substitution for "all of the various war taxes, tire excise' taxes, luxury taxes, stamp taxes, capital stock tax, transportation, telegraph and insurance taxes ; the tax on soft drinks, ice cream, cosmetics, admission and dues and all of the other TtT varieties' of obnoxious, discriminatory forms of taxation," which would he repealed on next January 1 under a series of amendments to the revenue revision bill offered by the senator. Repeal of the excer profits tax as of last January 1 instead, of next January 1, as planned by both the house and the senate finance committee, also was proposed by Mr. "Smoot. Under his amendments the corporation income tax would remain at 10 per cent, but there won hi be no change in the present tobacco, liquor and inheritance taxes. The sale tax amendment reads: "That in addition to all other taxes there shall be levied, assessed, collected and paid upon every commodity manufactured, or produced, when sold, leased or licensed for consumption or use without further process of manufacture, a tax equivalent to 3 per cent of the price for which such commodity is sold, leased or licensed ; such tax to lie paid by the manufacturer or producer." "It should be noted."' said Senator Smoot. "that- as the tax is imposed only when articles are sold 'for consumption or ue without further process of manufacture' tlie tax will he ibincumulative in effect and will give the integrated business no advantage over the disintegrated business. "There will he but one tax. If a commodity is sold for consumption or use in a further process of manufacture no tax will be imposed. For example, crude oil sold for fuel would be taxable, but if sold to a refinery for tl.e m.-tktng of gasoline or like commodities would not he taxable. "In order to avoid administrative difficulties with small sales, the bill provides for an exemption of all sales of less than Sfi.C) during one year. Th's will practically exempt all agricultural products, but as most agricultural products would find their way into manufactured products, they would be exempt, anyway. "Provision is made for a like tax upon similar imnarted commodities so that there can vS no discrimination aga'nst American products. "The yield of this tax has been carefully estimated and approved by one f the foremost economists in the country. Prof. Charles J. Bullock of Harvard, to produce during the calendar year 1922 $7St),75G,6oO. Conservatism has been exercised throughout ibis estimate. The yield will undoubtedly be. olos to S1XK),000 000. but the figure given is more than ample to provide the revenue which will be lost by the repeals which I propose." TREATIES VOTE OCTOBER 15 Agreed That General Debate in Senate Shall End on October 14. Washington, 0t. 3. The treaties o peace with Germany, Austria and Hungary will come to a vote probably on October 15, under an agreement reached by the senate.

Everyone in Los Angeles and for miles around knows "Steve the Auto Parts Man," for "Steve" is as much a part of the city and an institution as liroadway itself. Steve owns the "Auto Boneyard of the Pacific," situated to the heart of the city on Eleventh street, Broadway. The "Boneyard" occupies about 250,000 square feet of land, and there the autoist may buy any part desired for any make of car on the market within the past 15 years. Steve's business is to buy old and wrecked cars and dismantle them, storing away all the good parts for sale to some future patron. Much of his supply comes from transcontinental motorists, who sell their worn cars for little or nothiug on reaching Los Angeles from the East. It is said that Steve can supply auto parts that the automobile manufacturers themselves cannot. Some of the manufacturers, finding certain parts out of stock, refer their prospective customers to Steve.
