PROBABLE BIC SURPRISE
AT NEW YORK AUTO SHOW
Rumored the Paige Motor Car Company
Will Make Startling Price An
nouncement in Connection With the
Well-known Four "36"
There is a rumor afloat in automobile
circles that the Paige Motor Car Com
pany is going to spring a big surprise
at the New York Show by announcing
a record-breaking price in connection
with their well-known Four "36."
Gossip lias it that this Paige model
is the same car that was introduced at
$1275. and that the new price will be
$1075, retaining every single one of
the high-grade features which it em
If this rumor is correct, the an
nouncement of the new price will be
one of the biggest, sensations of the
show. This Four "36" is the car that
by its tremendous success and popular
ity has brought the Paige Company
from the ranks of the smaller manu
facturers to its present enviable posi
tion as ono of the ten leading motor
The new Paige Six "46" will also be
anno-inced at the New York Show, and
will be on exhibition. It is claimed
that this car sets a new Btandard of
"Six" values at its exceptional price
of ? 1395.
The body design of this new "Six"
is exceedingly striking, being of the
"most advanced stream line type which
is enhanced by the rounding body,
ta.pering liood and "V" type radiator.
The mechanical units of this car are
worthy of note, namely: cantilever
springs, Gray & Davis electric system,
Bosch magueto, Paige-Continental mo
The Paige exhibit will be unusually
interesting to the individual buyers as
the cars displayed are regular stock
machines, showing exactly what a pur
chaser buys. This is quite out of the
usual run of such matters as hitherto
manufacturers have spent weeks and
even months in preparing their show
cars, building them regardless of ex
pense and loading them with every pos
sible accessory, much of which is not
included in the regular stock models.
There will be oil display both a
touring and roadster model of the new
six-cylinder car, and similar models of
their four-cylinder car. In adaition
they will have on exntbition their four
and six motor cut away so that every
part of the working mechanism is ex
hibited, this will give even the layman
a clear idea of the mechanical features
and will call attention to the character
istic features of the Paige product.
You can see at a glance the silent
spiral gears that make up the drive for
cam shafts, water pump, generator, etc.
The motor is cut away so that the
cylinder walls and pistons are visible,
also the crank shaft and connecting
rods. In fact all the vitals of the en
gine are exposed to view.—Adv.*

Damage Done by a Hired Man
In the current issue of '' Farm and
Fireside" a i outributor gives an inter
esting account of the losses that can be
directly traced to excitalbie and high
temipered employes. Ho tells the follow
ing story of a personal experience on
his own farm:
"I an Ayrshire cow three
years ago. She was what is called high
strung and a. bit difficult to manage.
But the fanner who owned her before
me was a cantankerous oM cuss, as was
also his aon-in-'aw who lived with him,
and I calculated that at our place she
would quiet, down. She did. My sou
John and I handled her, and in three
weeks she would stand to be milked. But
I I hired a man, and he was not even
tempereJ, and he had fights with that
Ayrshire and she jtave less and less
milk, and she lost nesh and I had to
sell her for $25 less than I paid for
"I discharged that hired man.
"Why, he had nearly ruined two
•te&lM, of youn>g Pinto horses 'by his bad
temper; so I let the Pintos go too. He
had tlhree celts which ha<l barnyarded
it during the winter so afraid of him
■thai 'you couldn't get within half a
mile of t'hem.'
"Mow this man was one of the most
efficient workers it has ever Ibecn my
pleasure to see work, excetpt for his ner
vousness and 'bad temper. He knew how
to work. He wa« 'big and strong ami
willing. He was not stable. It was
as i'f he were continually yelling 'JBoo!'
at every living thing on the place."
REMOTEST HAMLET CAN
SEE MOVING PICTURES
Made Possible by Unique Combination
of the Motor Oar and the "Movie"
Camera, Products of Two American
The remotest hamlet can now have a
moving picture show. This has been
made possible by a unique combination
of the motor car and the "movie" cam
era, products of the two industries
which have made the most rapid Btrides
in Americau businoss history.
The use of a car as the motive power
for a moving picture outfit is the de
cided innovation started in the course
of the agricultural extension work be
ing conducted by the Louisiana State
University authorities for the benefit of
the southern farmers.
A short time ago the government !
furnished tbe university with moving
pictures showing the latest methods of
intensive farming. But as electrical ap
paratus and lighting facilities were al
most always totally lacking in the rural
communities of Louisiana, where the
pictures were to be shown, the farmers
were forced to forego the educational
campaign that had been planned for
their especial benefit.
In lieu of adequate electrical facili
ties, the university officials finally
solved the problem by attaching a small
dynamo to the motor of an Overland
car. A pulley on the front end of
the crankshaft provides a base for the
belt by which the dynamo is run, the
picture machine being' attached on the
opposite side of the car.
outfit, which can be easily
handled and operated by one man, was
first used at the Louisiana state fair at
Baton Rouge, where the pictures were
shown in the open air. For eight days
the Overland motor ran smoothly and
without heating, although, of course,
the car was stationary.
The auto-stereopticon, as it has been
unofficially termed, has attracted the
favorable attention of officials of the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, who predict that the plan will be
put into use in many rural communi
ties throughout the country.—Adv.*
Tests Lincoln Highway
Of great interest to motorcyclists is
the test recently made by the Lin
coln Highway Association of the new
transcontinental route. Arrangements
were made for each Lincoln Highway
consul Ao cover the part of the route
in his territory all starting at the
same time. Thus practically the whole
3,389 miles was covered in "a day. Re
ports from all of the consuls have not
yet been turned in, but those so far
received show the roads in fairly good
condition, and very little difficulty ex
perienced in negotiating v them. This
means that future transcontinental
tourists will be aible to follow a direct
well marked route from ocean to
ocean. It also means that a lomg line
of automobilists and motorcyclists will'

URGES ABOLISHING "PINK
BILLS" IN LEGISLATION
Superintendent Pomeroy, of Printing
Department, Recommends This as
an Economic Measure, and Telia
Other Ways to Save Money
The annual report of A. Nevin Pom
eroy, Superintendent of Public Print
ing and Binding, for the year ending
June 30, 1914, has just been made
public, showing that the expenditures
for the year were $387,007.75 and
the appropriations $824,778.14, leav
ing an unexpenl-iied balance of $437,-
770.39. The printing for the legisla
tive session of 1913 was much larger
iu volume than for any previous ses
sion, and consequently more costly,
and Superintendent Pomeroy recom
mend.s that the printing of pink bills, —
bills printed when introduced and be
fore being acted on in committee, —be
done away with as this would savo
thousands of dollars of expense. The
establishment of the Division of Dis
tribution of Documents was a wise
move, according to Mr. Pomeroy, and
has already resulted in the saving of
more than $50,000 to the State. Docu
ments are not now being shipped in
discriminately as heretofore but only
as ordered. Attactood to the report
are the following recommendations:
"The Superintendent would recom
mend that if possible the nest Legis
lature abolish the use of the pink bills
or reduce the number ordemi; that a
law bo passed by the next Legislature
providing for a reduction in the num
ber of certain publications.
"That no law be enacted for any
special publication that does not carry
with it a specific appropriation for such
publication, the allotment of same and
their distribution through the Division
of Distribution of Documents, it h:u
been the custom to pass laws providing
for such publications without thought
as to how they are to be paid for. The
Superintendent has asked from the
Legislature only such an appropriation
as it is estimated will be necessary to
provide for the publications already au
thorized by law and such miscellaneous
printing as it is estimated the Senate,
House of Representatives and earth De
partment may require during the next
succeeding two years. Specie! publi
cations carrying no specific appropri
ation for the regular department work.
"That the edition of the Fish, Game
and Forestry Laws be materially re
duced. Bach successive Legislature
has been adopting a resolution pro
viding for the publication of 150,000
copies of these laws. It is apparent
that this number i s mucin larger than
is required. According to the requisi
tions filed for this publication it is evi
dent that 100,000 copies will serve
"That an act be passed by the next
Legislature permitting t'he Game Com
mission to use a portion of the receipts
from the sale of Hunters' Licenses
with which to purchase the license tags.
Under such an arrangement the Com
monwealth would be permitted to pur
chase such licenses as it may desire,
not necessarily printed ones. These
license tags, as at present produced,
are rather expensive as each one re
quires a change in form, thus consum
i ing a vast amount of time and delaying
| other work of the printing office.
"The Superintendent in closing this
| last report to your Excellency desires
to take this opportunity to thank you
i for tl(e great help you have alw-ays
j shown in an effort to better conditions
I and to save the Commonwealth any
| needless expenditures on the public
