TIME NOT ACCEPTED, The time made by various cars in both the Santa Monica road .race and the motordrome events were not accepted and allowed as official records for th reason that the ...board had not yet been able to secure possession of 'the original printed tape of th timing apparatus used to record the times in these two events.

Ever since Flossie. years old. prevented a burglary at fm. Llrxle Btookey's boarding-house in Belleville, when every other house In the neighborhood was entered, Flossie ha been the heroine of the block. Flossie Is a do. She has th outward markings of a fox terrlor, but fanciers say she is of mongrel blood. But while aspersions have been cast upon Flossie's ancestry, nobody has had anything disparaging to say about her mentality. On the other hand, it Is considered truly remarkable. , . -. . A reporter Interviewed he recently. He had to use an interpreter, of cours. Mrs. Stookey did the talking for her, assisted by Mrs. Stookey's mother, Mrs. Mary Roe-der. But In her own, way Flossie showed oft tn a manner that completely bore out her reputation for sagacity. Bh proved that sh knew tho difference between the door bell and the telephone bell and could distinguish between th knock of the grocer's boy and that of th butter man. Mrs. Stookey and Mrs. Roeder are both partially tdcaf. They callsd Flossie their "ears," whereupon Flossie pricked up her own ears, wagged her stub of a tall excitedly and barked at each woman. In turn. "She's showing us she's flattered," said Mrs. Roeder. "Why, her barks are as plain as words to me," sddsd Mrs. Btookey. "When It s the door ball she gives a Ions, shrill bark. When it's the 'phone bell sh gives a shrill, snappy bark. Neither mother-nor I cn hear either bell, but both of us can hear FlossU's bark and both can tell lust v.'hafc she mans." At this point Flossie turned anxiously towards the kitchen door and let out a rasping yelp that had an unmistakable snarl In it. 'Lizzie, there's the boy with the gro ceries," said Mrs.' Roeder. Turning to th reporter, sh added: "Flossie never did like that bor!" In a few seconds there was a rap at th kitchen door, Mrs. Stookay admitted a grinning youth with a hamper of groceries. While the boy was unloading th hamper Flossie watched him as if sh longed for a good mouthful from some part f his body. Then aha gave another yelp of an entirely different not and started for th front door. "Lizsle, here's the butter man!" said Mrs. Roeder. And the butter man it proved to be. The dog's two mistresses then expounded Flossie's many graces. They ssld she knew all th boarders and recognised anybody that ever boarded ther. but that sh had nothing to do with strangers. One when a pipe burst in th bathroom Flossie"' rah Into the kitchen shrieking rttth excitement, they said, and led them W th bathroom in time to shut, off the water and avert serious damage. , Th night the burglars robbed other houses in th neighborhood they said Flossie kept barking until some of th boarders talked of murdering her. When they learned next day of what sh had don, however, the boarders penitently showered good things to eat upon th dog. There is one thing that completely terrorises Flossie. And that is n empty stocking. Show her on and sh will run yelping to her basket as If sh had seen a ghost. Mrs. Stokey explained: "When she wss a pup sh tor up a pair -of stockings for me. I gave her a ound whipping and ever sine then sh has been in mortal terror of a stocking." WILLS $3,000,000, BUT BARS WEDDING BELLS NEW YORK, July I.
