SECOND SECTION Spanish monocco GROnG-coLornr ,The Spanish one In northern Morocco, in which recent newspaper dis- patches state important wjpwuuu have been carried out by Spanish troops, is described in the following 'bulletin issued from tne wasmngwn, D, C, headquarters of the National Geographic Society; u "in trenirthenine its military hold and extending its civil government in, northern Morocco, Spain la turning the table of history squarely about For it was from this country that the Moors and Arabs swarmed across me Straits of Gibraltar in the year 71 and placed Spain under a Mohammedan domination, the last Teatiges of i which were finally removed ealy in the year in which Columbus discor-.

It is part of the Mauretania of .the Bo- mans, on .01 Weir granaries wuuu h mnire was at its greatest It was the country of the barbary pirates who harassed the shipping of the world for centuries, collected tribute from many governments, and ' in whose suppression the infant United States Navy cut its first post-revolu- ' tionary war teeth in the early part of the nineteenth century. It is now e part of Morocco, which n many ways preserves more truly than any , other Mohammedan country the flavor of the 'Arabian Nights.' " "Spain, lying only a few miles north of the northern shores of Morocco, was naturally one of the first of the modern nations of Europe to gain a foothold in that country. Me-lilla, a aeacoast town near the north- . . . eastern corner jt Morocco, came into the possession of Spain in 1497, and other Mediterranean - coast towns have been captured at various times since. Though a definite zone of Spanish influence has been recognised since . an agreement between - France and Spain in 1912, Spain has done little more at any time than to hold the ports and a small area of the hin-. terland about each.' Spanish author- ity farther inland has been more or less nominal and has never been exercised at all in the more remote Raisulirhave operated in the Spaniah " territory in recent years wiin little molestation. One of their favorite activities has been the kidnapping of Europeans ' and Americans for ran r ' J 'r... . r." ji. r y LA nu vi vuuthu, mp uunuu "In their present . operations' the Spaniards are reported to be under taking the thorough pacification of the zone and the establishment or civil authority throughout its limits. Their reported capture or Sheshuan 'is considered an important step to ward this end. t . "The Spanish Moroccan sone is relatively narrow strip of territory with an area about equal to that of Belgium, or slightly greater than that of Vermont, extending across the en tire northern part Of Morocco. It hss ay frontage of about 200 miles on the Mediterranean Sea and of about SO utiles-on the Atlantic. It does not include the city of Tangier on the northwest rnmost point of Africa, that city with, a surrounding terri tory of 140 square miles having been under international control since 1912. The country is mountainous but contains considerable agricultur al land.- This portion of Africa is free from desert conditions. The Spanish sone, like the-portion of Mo rocco under- a French protectorate to the south, probably contains valuable mineral deposits, but. the disorders prevailing" neretof ore prevented ade quate prospecting, in recent years Spain has spent much more on the tone than has been received from it in revenues." ONLY 12 MOVING WEARING PARTS IN NEW MOTOR Announcement has just been made of a new type' revolving valve motor to be manufactured in quantities in the cominir year, which should it live up to the claim of its manufacturers is destined to become a revolutionary feature in the automotive industry. Only three moving parts are found in the valve mechanism of this mo tor, one being a cylindrical va!veop- erating lengthwise of the motor block above the cylinders, the crank shaft, and a shaft connecting these two parts. Water jackets entirely surround the cylinders and the cooling the valve proper is accomplished by forced water circulation through the center1 of the valve. The motor block closely resembles that of any standard poppet valve motor now being manufactured, with the exception: of the elimination of parts and the reduction of weight A simple but position oiling system has been supplied. . The patentee of this motor is RE. Hicks, of Merns, Ncbr., who during the war was senior instructor in the automoti v-ehool, Cmp-GrtlHV Atlanta, Ga. Associated , with him in his work on this motor was Cant. -W. II. Seabrooke, of the Fifth Division, who, was also forrnely associated with Mr. Hicks in Nebraska. The company preparing , to. manu facture this motor has been organ ized under the name of, Red Diamond Motors', Inc., : of Athens," Ga. V The name, as practically every ex-service man will see, has been taken from the insignia of the Fifth Division the Red Diamond. - Many of the South's prominent business -men have become associated with this company and it is understood that some of the best engineering and production men of the country are connected with .it Besides furnishing motors to pres ent manufacturers this company will also place on, the market- a car and truck bearing, its own name. It is stated that the car will be made to sell around, $2,250 and will have many advanced features of design, including a built in top and a wind shield. The dealer organization is being completed rapidly it is stated. ITATS OFF TO THE , MOTOR AMERICAN A letter written by a Siamese no hlrmin and forwarded by the vice rnnsul at Bamrkok. describes an American 12 h; p. motor which 'has Wn "in . constant work for . seven vears." :u ' - The motor also drives a dynamo charging 16-volt storage batteries for . . i j. . I i. i ! .1 iichtne' tne ooas wnen cruising, anu when at home this boat goes to town .nt hark 18 miles dailr. and is able to keep the batteries charged up tot lighting a small bungalow." The motor was also placed on shore once to drive a pump to keep floods out of a fruit garden, doing the work night and day for many days on kerosene. After this arduous labor we thought the motor deserved to have new white metal bearings, and that is about all the repairs it has ever requred. I have now sold the boat with the original motor in it at a higher price than when I built it The excellence of the material of this moderate priced American motor is superb In Motor Boating for December.

ALL CONTRACTS SUBJECT TO CONDITIONS BEYOND OUR CONTROL NDIANS, when they were the sole possessors or tne land now cauea Florida, had no use for artificial light other, than that furnished by their camp fires, or a lighted stick serving as a torch. Came their successors, and tallow candles to light for them the wav in tne nours ox aarmess. ui U ter came those who, with kerosene for light producing purposes, thought they had the ideal illuminant. Many of these latter we still have with us, especially in the smaller towns and in the rural sections. Many of them, however, have discarded kerosene and have advanced to the use of the new er, handier, cleaner source of illumi rations-electricity. No longer is the dweller in even the remote "sections of "the country denied the use of electricity for pur poses of illumination, even though he makes his home far from the haunts of men. away from-centers of popu lation where electric lighting has been in vogue for many years, through the establishment of electric lighting plants which-supply current to all who wish to use this modern lighting agency. Now, .however, one finds isolated farm homes and farm build ing" and grounds as brilliantly light ed at nisrht as is possible in any- town or city. These electrically lighted their individual electric lighting plants, something made possible by the commercial ability of manufac turers who are able to make and place these individual electric current producing plants in rural sections at a cost, to the purchaser and user, that is well, no cost at all, for such plants "pay for themselves," as users are ready to testify. Farm Home Light Plants in Florida v Would it surprise you to know that there are thousands of Florida farm homes that have their own individual electric lighting plants, that one com prny alone, of those manufacturing such plants, has installed ... more than 2.000 such plants in Florida farm houses ? Well it's a fact. And this particular company began operations T"M 1 1 . 1 J . . I in r tonaa less man live years .ago JuJy, 1916, to be exact. Another - fact worth - mentioning here that a Jacksonville man is responsible - for... making possible the blessing that farm home flighting plants have brought not only to Florida dwellers but to people in the rural sections everywhere and in towns where there is no central plant for the generation nad distribution of electric current, This man is Dr. William Stinson, a prominent Jacksonville physician, who rigged up an electric lighting plant for his own use in his laboratory and his home, using the batteries from his automobile to get the necessary current. In some way an engineer connected with the Dayton (Ohio) Engineering Laboratories Company heard of Drl Stinsonfc home-made electric lighting plant and came to see it The result is the Delco-Light which is to be found giving the most satisfactory of service in 2,000 or more Florida farm homes and everywhere throughout the rural sections of thecounlry. !:--? The service, too, is not merely in the matter of providing electrical il-hm ination but extends to doing much of the work of the farm home, drawing water, "milking the cows, ooerat- ii.g the churn, driving the washing machine, heating the laundnr irons, in fact, doing the proverbial "thousand and one. things" that need to be done (By J. C. Sellers) in the farm home, and doing the work at an immense saving of labor on the Dart - of the diligent housewife and her side partners; doing if too, at a minimum of expense and, most surprising of all, automatically, in that the home lighting plant has reached such a degree of perfection that it knows when to start and . when to stop in the matter of keeping the batteries always charged and ready for whatever load of work is to be called for. within reasonable limits, of course, but ample for all home needs. If such a home electric plant Isn't said, "even way off in the Everglades section of Florida, down around the Keys section and all along the Gulf coast up into the farthest northwestern portion of Florida, not to mention theg roups and groups of red-headed pins down along the East Coast where the markers are most numerous, and with here and there a bunch or an isolated pin far in the interior of the state." Then it was that Mr. Cantrell told me that since July, 1916, his company had installed in Florida more than 2.000 of these Delco farm home'Iight- a blessingthen.I da.jiot know wJiatlJn . plants, that are also power plants constitutes a blessing. up to the limit of their capacity, and M'lChristmas Cheer the Year 'Round Jg ' A 1 A IM tf A nnnjeVenen.L ftlkA a S QBaAft ft AJnf af lie KJarTneU W Til SLiiVOUi SUffnm , m A0-mj MViwwue a nui swu w time (a us to My to one another, 'Merry Christmas and Happy New Year."

YEARBY Dealer .y Orlando, Florida ', ? us. It it Over 125,000 satisfied users endorse Delco-Light A Map Tells a Story : ; -A map is responsible for this story. as far as it has been told, and what is to follow. This particular marf hangs on a wall in the off ice of Mr. G. II. Cantrell, in Jacksonville, who is manager here for the Delco-Light Com pany for which Mr. Claude Nolan is the distributer in this territory. ' t Chancing to be in Mr. Cantrell's office the other day and noticing the laigt wall map of Florida all studded With red-headed Bins I asked him: What's the idea?" He knew I refer red to the pins and said that every pin represented a home-lighting plant. "But they are all over the map," I that the demand for them is constantly increasing; that eventually, present indict tions are, the map will be literally and actually studded with these rod-beaded indicators of the fact that "let there, be light" is being gradually established throughout Florida by means of the Delco system. The "Satisfied Users I asked Manager Cantrell if out of all these thousands of Florida owners of Delco-Light plants there were ainy who were dissatisfied. He touched a desk button and a young lady responded to the call and in compliance with his direction, brought from the archives of the office a portfolio of letters to which Mr. Cantrell directed my attention, as his way of answering my question. And there, one after another, were letters from Florid-ians who are using the Delco farm home lighting plants, and every one of them proving a slogan employed by the Delco-Light Company: "There's a satisfied user near you," words that tell a truth. And in my travels about the state I have yet to find a Delco light user who has said aught but words of praise for his farm home lighting plant This general expression of appreciation was vocied In one of the letters I saw in Manager Cantrell's office. It was written by S. A. Brewer, of Aubumdale, Polk county, who saidt "I think more of my (Delco)) plant than 'anything I have on the farm. It does the work for us and will save enough in two years to pay for itself." Corroboration of this was contained in another letter, thia one from George H. Proctor, who resides just outside a .... county. iievsays: ; L"While we live in the country we l ave all city comforts at hand, and with telephone, Delco-light, hot and cold running water in bath and lavatories, automobiles and good roads, the farmer certainly has come into his own." , t Mr. Proctor, you will note, expresses appreciation of having water wherever needed. The Delco makes possible this great convenience, without labor, by electrically pumping water from the earth and enabling its distribution where desired in the farm home, the barns, cattle pens, etc. . Down at Lakeland the Golf club installed a .Delco lighting plant for illuminating the buildings and the golf, grounds and the club president Bert E. Betts, writes and says that "it selves the problem of furnishing light at a low cost to those country homes and points inaccessible to regular lighting service," while Coe D. Smith, at Crescent City, who has had his plant for several years says: "It has proven satisfactory in every respect; it has never failed to give good results a single night or hour. It is simple, clean, economical. Thus I might go on to the extent of using up columns and pages quoting the satisfied expressions; of those who are using Delco farm lighting plants, hot necessarily all on or in farm homes but also in homes in the smaller towns, where central lighting Plants have not' as yet been installed. A Delco Lights in Every County The red-headed pins, in the map that hangs on the wall in Mr. ' Cantrell's office, are noting the lighting history of Florida. There isn't a county in the state that hasnt one or more pins in it, some of the counties being quite thickly studded, with here and there only one or two, indicating that the making of light in dark places everywhere throughout Florida is well on the way. and all because Ir Stinson wanted the modem u- . . run inant, electrically, in ms iaiwr-tory sxd home before the day of electric liphting- of Isolated residences was provided for, and because a great engineering company, had the ingenuity, in the person of C. F. Kettering, who invented the self-starter for automobiles, to place on the market a plant so compact, so efficient. , at a cost to the purchaser so low that to own one involves -no financial hardship, and that brings with it "this Wondrous gift to humanity," -A dvt UijlT 1 Relate? to lie "Mailer :JImiL!!
