has already established the following
road records;',

10,000- miles in 20 days. ;
12,405 taiiles in 25 days.
Ofiicial reports will show all three
of these records slightly better than

There, can be no questioning the
authenticity of the records. The car
was rigidly examined and passed as
stock, before the run began, Nov. 22.
An A. A. A. observer has been with
every moment since. The mileage
has been taken by two speedometers.
To a great extent, the sensational
speed feature was a surprise, even to

was the schedule mapped out first for
the Maxwell, but it was found, during
the first day of the run, that much

the least increasing the task of the

miles daily was established and slight slightly

; On Friday morning, Dec. 17, the car
passed the old total and there was
great rejoicing. Rumors were rife of
a similar attempt by a competing

The Miami Herald gives the follow following

state, but it would probably be a good

Catts was elected. In case he tried to

jcould stand on their rights and teach
him and his deluded supporters that
the law puts all religious denomina
tions on the same footing and that
the governor of Florida cannot search
catnoac scncois ana convents any
more than he can search Columbia
College or Stetson University. Or
they might, and probably, would, open
their doors and tell Mr. Catts to walk
in and see what he could see. Did
anybody ever see iron bars on the
windows of a Catholic school or con
vent in this state? The truth is that
these institutions are as open to the
public as Protestant schools and the
teacher are always ready and glad
to show them to their friends. Priests
and nuns travel freely all over the
state, and if one of them wanted to
leave the church, all he or she would
have to do would simply be to change
clothes and refuse to go back to the
abbey or convent. Catts is in a most
contemptible business, and knows it.
THE GERMAN ATTITUDE
The following from an Associated
Press correspondent in Serbia is of
interest in showing how the German
military element feels toward the
world at large:
Away from their duties the Ger German
man German officers proved most agreeable
companions, men who could land and
accept a joke. Even the older men
took an almost boyish interest in the
witty and animated conversation of
their youthful mess mates. Every
body seemed glad to be under a roof
and have a meal before him and a
class of Munich beer and a cigar in
prospect.
. They were not tired of Hie war, It
seemed. The job in hand would be
thoroughly done, they said.' The
opinion of the neutral public and
press did not bother them any more,
since, they felt, Germany and her al
lies could not do anything to please
the neutrals. v
"We depend upon ourselves," said a
colonel. "And while we value the
opinion of strangers, have valued
them too much in Germany in recent
years, we have come to the point
where we don't care, because caring
on our part has not helped us any.
If the world chooses to believe we are
barbarians, then the world must and
no doubt will, please itself. But
say that it cannot influence our ac
tions, or tne outcome oi tne war
when the people call us bad names.
We have our faults, no doubt, enough
of them, but we have our good qual
ities and the right to defend our
selves by all the means admissible
in modern warfare."
As the colonel spoke, the hum of
conversation ceased. Heads along the
table nodded silent approval.
"The opinion of prejudiced neutrals
be damned," -said a young lieutenant,
who thus recorded what may be look looked
ed looked upon as the extreme view held in
the German army on this subject.
