By MAXWELL Bl KOFZER, Long; Island City, N. Y. Continued from Last Week. Tes, Doctor. A sort of a vacation trip to the "land of the free and the brave !" No doubt you can procure a substitute for the mentioned span of time. In fact, so convinced was I of your, willingness and ability to play my escort that I ventured to engage a berth for you on the steamer Rookania that quits port at 7:1a lomgnt. "Since you have disposed, I'll forego supposing. I shall be ready at the stip-1 ulated hour." 1 rose. "There are the manifold preparations," I murmured. "Just a moment." Holmes detained me. "It is necessary that you should learn of the object of this trip and observe certain cautions efore and after embarking. Pray, peruse this epistle from our good and mutual friend Lestrade, the still undimmed star of the Scotland Yard troupe of nifty performers." Whistling a tune from a popular comic opera. Holmes stooped over his desk and picket a letter rrom a drawer. "My dear Mr. Holmes (I read) : In my perlexity I turn to you. You are there with the gray stuff all right. We are in hot water. The N- Y. Custom House has requested us to keep a vigilant eye on one Malcolm C. Weston, a notorious smuggler of diamonds. Weston, a Yankee, is booked to return to the States on the Rookania. Heavy purchases of precious stones made during the last few days signify that he is up to his old tricks again. His manipulations are. however, so cunning that he has fooled the secret police in every instance. The N. Y. Custom House officials are simply helpless. Despite their desperate efforts they have, so far, invariably failed t locate the gems he 'imported' and have had to permit him to land without molestation. They are urging us now to secure your services for this trip of the Rookania, being convinced, as we are ourselves, that you are the only man living who can beat Weston's game. Please, Mr. Holmes, make your own terms but for the love of Mike ! accept the Job ! Yours as ever, LESTRADE." "This is somewhat confusing." I said, placing the missive on the table. "Why does not Lestrade send Peters or Williamson, both of whom delight in Just that sort of adventure while you, as you stated repeatedly, are through' with mere detective work?" Holmes laughed. "The inspector's opinion appears to be that two gentlemen you named are 'dead ones,' he said, facetiously, while I am the 'only man living." "Nor is Lestrade mistaken therein," I acknowledged. "Yet you refused a similar case only a fortnight ago." "Circumstances, at times, alter resolutions." replied Holmes. "I have decided to pilot this affair, not so much for the love of Mike as because ot me tact tnat it promises to furnish some points of interest and because I have never been in America. Please bear in mind. Doctor, that you are to be the Honorable Colonel Northcliffe during this journey and take the proper care to preserve your incognito. Disguise yourself in a suitable manner. We shall go aboard independently and meet on the steamer as two travelers, previously acquainted, yet running across each other by blind chance. I trust you will remember this and not fail ma Au revoir, my dear Watson." To Be- Continued. NEW YORK MASTERS' TOURNEY.

Whenever business has called me to a city or town where I could get In I touch with local automobile conditions in the last year or two, I have been I struck by the Interest of the prospec- j tive buyer in the mechanism ot the car he Is inspecting. This, contrary i to the pretty general belief that peo- I pie buy cars on size and looks only. It Is this eager desire for exact knowledge ; which had the largest Influence in I causing us to prepare a series of advertisements dealing with tbe mechan ical features of Studebaker cars. We decided to use these advertisements In newspapers because we regard them as the medium that ia immediately responsive. The time has gone by when an automobile is purchased merely because it is (rood looking. Vet designers still strive for the streamline effect that is so well exemplified in Steudebaker cars, because beauty is a' satisfying adjunct to mechanical excellence. Once upon a time the man about to buy an automobile looked only at the lines of the hood, today he is vitally and intelligently interested intwhat lies under' the hood.' Since the work of the advertising department is to tell the public what it wants to know and what it should know about automobiles in order to purchase intelligently, naturally we are keen to get our story as ctuickly as nossible to then people. Havinir decided to give them what one might call education in the mechanical features of the Studebaker car. we are UMing the newspapers because we can keep our bands on the pulse of public interest ami amplify any of these talks almost In a day if we find there are reasons for doing so because of local conditions in any part of the country. It should not be forgotten that people buy Steudehakers in the hot parts of Lower California and Arieona because of their perfect cooling system, while In Western Canada they may be pre- 1 a n.imiy 1. l 1 ;VT .

This ability to chane the advertising is possible only where it is appearing in such a flexible medium as "the newspapers. The Studebaker Corporation is particularly interested in the prospec tive buy-er who asks questions. It is a sign that he is going to tie a carerul. discriminating owner. There are questions and questions: yet it is not difficult to classify practically all of them and prepare educational reading matter that will answer about all the queries and set at rest all the doubts. In my personal contact with buyers the only question I ever found hard to answer was that of the pretty young woman who remarked after a long ex planation: "Tes, I think I know what makes the back wheels go around, but what makes the front wheels go?" The newspaper advertisements we are running in April are merely what the Studebaker dealer says to cus tomers when they come in singly to the Studebaker showroom. In these mechanical advertisements we have a comprehensive guide to the machine. With their drawings thev give the owner an understanding of tne details of construction and opera tion.

Old Indian Trails. Between, Pittsburgh and Chicago the great Lincoln Memorial road traverses trails and roads, made famous during Indian wars and later- during the Northwest wars with the French and their Indian allies. More than passing interest attaches to the memorial mon ument erected to the memory of the gallant Crawford, burned at the stake at Upper Sandusky, Wyandot county, O., by the Indians. The Colonel and his entire defending party met the same fate. Historic roads and trails -continue, as units of the highway, until west of Chicago the Overland Trail begins. The Overeland Trail! Is there a native American who 1 at some time has not spoken the name with a catch in the breath? Our grandfathers and our fathers drove their ox teams and prairie schooners over this vast territory as trackless as the sea. Their blood was spilled and their bones whitened along the 2,(X0 miles over which they traveled, blazing the trail of the pioneer settlers and those Argonauts of '49, whose name attaches to the western end of Lincoln Highway. On the Overland Trail trudged the Donner party, taking six months to cover a distance which later has been traveled in two weeks without undue effort and in a degree of comfort that approximates luxury to the lover of nature. Wonders and Claries Unrivaled. Volumes might be written of that inter-connected series of roads and trails, beginning at Cumberland, Md., and wending Its torturous but historic way to the southwest section of the country where there abound wonders and glories, unrivaled, unequaled, throughout the world. Antiquarian re- , search now going on in New Mexico and Arizona proves that the Christian era had not yet dawned when there existed a civilization comparable with that of Egypt, Syria and the Mongol. Days, weeks and months may be spent in these great storehouses of education and evidences of a past and long-forgotten civilzation. The ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum or Babylon reveal a "new art" when compared to ' revelations of late excavations north of ' the border of Old Mexico. . While archeologists are seeking to determine the age of the pic- ' tured story of the centuries who has yet been. able, even to say who built the tower at Newport, R. I., or what actual purpose, was served by the serpentine mounds of Central Ohio? These and countless other wonders of man and nature await tho eye of the tourist who has not, but should, "See America First." Tarry At Home m While. There is no time more opportune than that following the disaster of the pres ent European war.' The. disappointment that may follow an enforced "tarry at home awhile" will soon bo forgotten in the greater enjoyment of a series of long or short distance tours over American roads, and to points of interest within our own boundaries. Why not a trip to your "home town?" It may be, In Iowa, Kentucky or California. 'Have you watched its growth? Would you recognize those scenes to which your memory reverts when cares of business bear down hard or you feel like getting back to nature? Takir.tf you out of the country has not taken the country out of you. Go where you will, be it North, South, Ea3t or West, there await you im proved health, much pleasure, and a broadened view. Tut!
