Most floor-heaters for automobiles seem to be designed for the rear compartment and not for the front seat. The heater shown in the illustration is designed for runabouts, roadsters, and particularly the type of automobile that affords no protection for the driver .against cold, such as taxicabs, town cars and limousines. The radiator is simply an ordinary floor radiator such as is used in hot-air systems of house-heating. Hie ad justable vane type with the ribbed foot-control knob is of course the most desirable, as it will allow the driver to permit as little or as much heat as he desires to come through. The size ot the radiator used depends on the amount of clear floor space. As the illustration indicates, a hole is cut through the slanting part of the floor and the radiator set in and If You Equip the Driving Compartment of Your Automobile With a Heater Now, There Won't Be Any Cold Feet This Winter. screwed down. It will be found that a surprising smount of heat comes through when the radiator is wide open. A heater of this sort assures much, more comfortable driving in an open car when the winter weather Is severe. Frank W. Ilarth, in Popular Science Monlhlv.

VAT1C3 n.06 FEW MISHAPS 111 BAD PLAGES Sections Commonly Regarded as Extremely Dangerous Prove to Be Relatively Free From Serious Catastrophies. t Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) A three-months' study of motor accidents on Maryland roads has brought tojlight the interesting disclosure that a vast majority of the disasters that overtake motorists are brought upon themselves by their own recklessness, and that !H per cent of them are due to speeding, says a writer in the Public Ibals, published by the bureau of public roads. United States Department of Agriculture. , Few Accidents in Dangerous Places. "One of the interesting developments of the investigation," the journal coos on to say. "is that the largest number of accidents have occurred at the places that have always been considered safe, while the sections which have beeu commonly regarded as being extremely dangerous are proving to be relatively free from accidents." Where the State highway crosses tlie nine Ilidgo mountains, in the western parr of the state, and grades are steep and curves sharp, there were but eight accidents during three months. On the National pike, between lialtimore and Frederick, where there are 4S miles of the straighten road in the state, the record for the same time showed sixteen accidents, three of which were fatal. "And yet," says the publication, "few stretches of highway in the whole road system are so free of any features which might be considered as dangerous." On the Halt iniorc-Washingt 011 road, with all apparent danger spots re-moed. the record shows that during the same period there was one accident for every four miles of road. Accidents in Safe Places. "There Meiiis to be only one an swer to account for these hitherto unsuspected conditions." the article says. That anwei- is: "Even the less careful motorisis drive cautiously in the presence of recognized dangers, such as steep grades, sharp curves, grade crossings, etc.. whiie the absence of such dangerous features give the driver a sense of security which, prompts him to take a chance ail yield to the well-nigh universal passion for speed." Few accidents were due. it was found. t the condition of the roads themselves, and most of those were due to rains. 'ippery surfaces caused by WHAT OIL GAUGE IS FOR Guards.

Federal investi gation of the retail prices in Chicago took a more definite turn when it was announced by Assistant United States District Attorney Edwin L.

WINS DIVORCE DECREE Mrs. Harold F. McCormick of Chicago Charges Desertion. Daughter-cf John D. Rockefeller Given Absolute Divorce From Head of International Harvester Co. Chicago, Dec. 20. Mr?. Harold F. McCormick, daughter of John D. Rockefeller, was divorced from her husband, who is the millionaire head of the International Harvester company. The charge was desertion. The decree of divorce was signed within an hour after the papers were tiled. Beforo Judge Charles A. McDonald of the Superior court, Mrs. McCormick charged that her husband had deserted her in 101S while she was living in Switzerland. She asked complete annulment of the famous services celebrated 2d years ago when John D. Rockefeller-, her father, America's wealthiest man. gave her in marriage to Chicago's wealthiest youth. The loug-hera.ded divorce proceeding, spectacular in its principals, was carried through so quietly that only witnesses and lawyers were in the courtroom. The session of court had been idle for an h.-tir when Mrs. McCormick en- Jered t e ro0m. It was vacant save for clerk and bailiff. She was e.ecom panjeti j- two household servants, who served as her witnesses, and her law- yers. Mr. McCormick was not in court. Mrs. McCormick took the witness stand without any hesitation or tremor. The decree which Ju ice McDonald granted provides at) absolute divorce without any waiver of dower rights. It is expected that another bill will be filed which will relate to a property settlement. A mammoth portion of the wealth in Amotion is eewered in the two principals without regard to future inheritances. .
