AutomoblHsts will notice with
Interest and a measure of astonish
ment, says the New York Times, that
a Supreme Court jury up In Delaware
county has decided that tho color
ot a motor car, as well as the speed
with which it is driven, can be tak
en Into account In considering the
extent of the owner's responsibility
for the harm it does. For the jury
was of tho opinion that It was the
violent color of a certain automo
bile, no less than the rate at which
it was going, that frightened a cer
tain horse and led to a disastrous
smashup. Probably the jury is
right, but what of it. Horses are
capable of any stupidity, and they
are never so happy as when they
can work themselves up into a
frenzy of fear, real or pretended,
over something quite harmless. It
is quito likely, therefore, that a
passionately red automobile would
scare many horses able to endure
with some approach to equanimity
tho passing of one of less hectic
complexion. It does seem hard,
however, if tho painting of motor
cars must be adjusted to the silly
timidities of an obsolescent animal.
A like subserviency In the begin
ning would have banned the auto
mobile from every road, for all
horses started by having hysterics
whenever they saw one of the ma
chines, no matter what Its tint. If
they could, as most of them now
have, learned to tolerate the cars
of sober hue, they can do the same
for those that rival the rainbow.
And they should be made to do so.

No summer wardrobe will bo com

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at
least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to cure In all
its stages, and that Is Catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure Is the only posi
tive cure now known to the medi
cal fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional diseaso, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is taken internally,
acting directly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation
of the disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the consti
tution and assisting nature In doing
Its work. The proprietors have so
much faith in its curative powers
that they offer One Hundred Dollars
for any case that It falls to euro.
