None of Previous Tear's Broken But
One Established Which Will
Interest Average Eiders
While no iljrt track or roa'l motor-
I cycle records'were broken during 1914,1
| there one.record established dur- j
1 inn t' lo year which will be of |
| interest to the average rider—Mn econ
omy record. This was made by Kd. Per i
lin, of Stockton, I'al., who rode his i
motorcycle 162.7 miles on a single gal-!
lon of gasoline. Taking the average*
price of gasoline as 18 cents, this
means that Perrin roile a fraction over j
nine miles at a cost o» one cent. While I
U)f course this test was made on a
smooth road under favorable conditions,
vet it proves the extreme economy of
I the two-wheeler, both for pleasure anil
| commercial purposes. For if under or- i
idiiiarv conditions one secured only half j
j that mileage on a gaUmi of gaso- j
i line, that would mean four and one- j
half miles at a cost of one cent.
Another interesting record of the |
year was that of R. O. linker, who •
crossed the continent from the Pacific
to the Atlantic in eleven davs, eleven |
hours iiini ten-minutes, lowering the
former transcontinental time of twenty
days, nine liours and one minute.
The F. A. track national pro- J
f ess jo li nI, championship events of the
year were won hs follows: One mile,
Ray Crevlstou, time, 4 6 3-5; two mile,
.lohn Constant, 1.4 0 4-5; five mile,
liobert Perry, 4.18; ten mile, Charles
Hnlke, 8.48 15; twenty five mile, Carl |
(iondy, 20.06; one hundred .mile, Fred
Meyer, !>4.00 3-5; one liotir, Leslie
ParUhurst, 61 miles.
W. A, Leuders carried ofl' the honors
for the one. two, five and ten mile nit- !
tional championships for amateurs. The
twenty-five mile event was won by K. I
Raulet, time, 23.16. and the lil'tv mile |
by W. A. hueders in 46.37 2-5.
Important road events for the year j
were as follows; 300 mile race at j
Dodge City, Kan., won by (Men E. ■
Boyd in 4.24.48; 250 mile event at)
Sioux City, la., won bv .loe Wolters, i
time, 3.43.52 2-5; Suvnnnah, Ga„ 300 j
mile road race, won bv Lee Tayloi, j
I time, 5.02.32. Lorenzo Boido won this
i vear's Sail Diego-Phoenix motorcycle |
I road racb, crossing the desert iu four-!
teen hours and nineteen minutes, and j
Krwin G. Baker was winner of the
El Paso Phoenix event, time, fifteen '
hours and 52 minutes.—Adv."
Robert L. Morton's Opinion of New
York Auto Show
Robert L. Morton, manager of the j
Keystone Motor Car Company, local dis- j
irilmtors of the Chalmers, Dodge Bros, i
and Saxon cars, returned last evening
from the Grand Palace Automobile j
Show, closing to-night, at New YorU, j
says it was the best lie has ever at
tended. In addition to the automobiles,
exhibited, the manufacturers of auto
parts were handsomely represented, as
ivell as the motorcycles and auto ac-1
■l'ssories. The attendance was unusual
•v good and the interest manifested and
ictual business done indicates a suc
essl'ul year's business for 1915.

Parting of the Ways
It was over, then—the dream. The
wife rose unsteadily anil put on her
i hat.
She was weary—weary to the bone
| of it all —his threats, his unmanly eva
j sions, his weak, despicable subterfuges.
But her eyes were resolute.
"It's no use, Henry," she said bit
terly, " I'm going ''

Persian Bread,
The Persian native bread to-day is
very little different from that used a
I thousand years ago. The Persian oven
lis built of smooth masonry work in
I the ground and is usually about the
i size of a barrel. Many of them have
j been used for a century. The dough
is formed into thin sheets about a foot
' long and two feet wide and f-'la.ppsd
' against the side of the oven. It bakes
I in a few minutes.
Whole Hog or None
"Whole beg or mine" refers to Mo

leave pork rtrirtlv alone lie might as
well consume the whole hog as risk
i eating an,» part of it.

Famous Irish Tenor to Sing Here Third
of February
The appearance of John McCormack,
the famous Irish tenor, at the Chesitnut
street auditorium, February 3, is an
event which will 'be looked forward to I
with much interest. This is MT. MI - I
Cormack's first visit to Harrisburg, pnd I
he will no dou'lrt be received with the j
sa me enthusiasm and la rye crowds
which invariably greet him wherever I
he appears. An impression seems to
prevail that high prices will be charged |
for his concert here, which is a mistake,
as popular prices will prevail in order |
to give all a chance to hear him. His j
present tour has increased his popular
ity to that extent that he sings to ca
pacity houses everywhere, and at Phil-1
adelphia, Chicago, Toronto, St. Louis i
and San Francisco, extra concerts have
been booked in response to the demands
of the people.
At San Francisco on January 17, he
will give his fifth concert before re
turning to fill his pastern engagements.
Mr. McCormack always gives great con
sideration to requests and for encore
numbers never gets away without sin>?-
j iuig his most popular songs including
| "I Hear You Calling Me," "Mother
| Machree," ''Mac,ushla," "An Even
j dug Song," and others well known to
l Vietrola owners.
As Mr. McCormack does not a>ppear
j outside of the larger cities he will be
j greeted toy many from Carlisle. Lebanon
i York, Mechanicsiburg, Chamibersfourg,
etc., and requests from these anil other
towns for seats will be complied with.

Men Called "Missing" Are Not Always
Dead or Wounded
In accounts of battles one almost in- j
variably reads of the deail, wounde I
and "missing." That the latter are not;
always among the dead or wounded,
nor even among the prisoners taken
by the enemy, is shown in this extract
from General Horace Porter's "Cam-1
paigning With Grant:"
"We learned something at Shiloh
about the way in which reports of j
losses are sometimes exaggerated in
battle. At the close of the first day'sj
fight Sherman met a colonel of one of
his regiments with only about a hun
dred of his soldiers in ranks and said j
to him, 'Why, where are your men?'
"The colonel cast his eyes sidiy |
along the line, wiped a tear from his!
cheek and replied in a whimpering,
voice, 'W e went in 800 strong and
that's all that's left of us.'
"'You don't tel'l me!' exclaimed!
.Sherman, beginning to be deeply af-1
fected by the fearful carnage.
" '¥es, said the colonel, ' the rebs
appeared to have a special spite against j
"Sherman passed along some hours;
afterward when the commissary was
issuing rations and found the colonel's]
men returning on the run from under'
the bank of the river, where th<?y ha I
taken shelter from the firing, ami in a ;
feiw minutes nearly all of the lost 700'
had rejoined and were boiling coffee ;
and eating a hearty meal with an ap
petite that showeldi tihey were still very |
much aflive."

The Incident That Led Sir Henvy La
yard to Explore Their Ruins
1 he lirst man to undertake extensive
and important explorations among the
ruins of Babylon and Nineveh was Sir
Henry Layard. It was due to Ins
friendship for a young man who had a
great fear of seasickness that he was
led to begin what was to be his life
work. Layard was educated in the law
and started for Ceylon to practice the
He was accompanied by another lad,
who had a horror of the ocean, and La
yard readily agreed when his compan
ion suggested that they make the trip
by land across Europe, Asia Minor,
Persia and India. It was while on
this journey that Layard was inspired
with the ambition to d.'lve among the
ruins of the ancient >ities of Asia.
"When I firs* beheld the mounds
of Nineveh." he wrote, "a great long
ing camp over me >y iearn what wa<
hidden within them."
He yielded to the desire and, largely
at his own expense, carried on theße ex
cavations at Habylon and Nineveh,
which were chiefly responsible for the
discovery of tin- lost records and relics
of a people who live,l 3,000 years ago.
Many cities and palaces, including the
palace of King Nebuchadnezzar, were
unearthed by Layard. and the most val
uable treasures In the British Museum
serve to commemorate his name and
fame.—'Milwaukee Sentinel.
