A PERSONALLY CONDUCTED
AUTO TOUR OF TILE SOUTH
An unusual plan has been formed by
the Scarborough Motor Guide com company
pany company of Indianapolis, the publishers
of the official road guide for the
Hoosier State Automobile Associa
tion, and other leading motor clubs,
to aid automobilists to tour the South
this coming winter.
In the past many automobile own.
ers have visited Florida each winter,
but for one cause or another, instead
of driving through, have taken the
train and had their machines shipped.
Some have dreaded the unknown
roads, others have feared to trust
themselves alone so far in an unfa
miliar part of ,the country, ;and still
others have doubted their ability to
get through. :
As a -matter of fact, thousands
each year, drive to Florida, and other
southern states; and all are enthus
iastic over the delights and pleasures
of the trip. 'vv; ;;
So, to convince tourists of the at
traction of this trip, Scarborough's
will early in January direct a number
of cars to Florida. The tour will be
led by one of their pathfinding cars,
and will be accompanied by a supply
car and mechanics, who will promptly
make repairs, tire changes, etc.,
whenever and wherever needed.
The objects of this personally con
ducted tour are:
1. To direct tourists over the best
roads, so that all doubt, worry and
vexation of getting off the best route
will be eliminated.
2. To direct the tourist to good ho hotels,
tels, hotels, garages and other stopping
points, where he can bet assured of
high-class service and courteous at
tention, without being overcharged.
3. By carrying a car of supplies
and mechanics, to relieve the tourist
of the annoyances of troublesome de
lays, due to exhausted gasoline, blow
outs and break-downs.
4. And"""most important, perhaps,
io make the trip south one of genuine
value and education. v Scarborough's,
by reason of their southern travels
are posted on all points of scenic and
historical interest. There are many
places right on or near their trunk
lines worth visiting, which are" often
missed. There are birthplaces of fa
mous men, battlefields of the revolu
tionary and civil wars: historical
homes; natural wonders; grand land
scape scenes; inspiring views from
mountain tops; great cities many o:
which are passed by unknown and un
seen. The grand object of this tour
is to make it of such value that when
the tourist returns he can feel he has
really visited the South' and learned
something of that great section ; o
America. '-'C..-,-: r: ,V;
There are surely great possibility in
this personally conducted tour, and as
all of this service is given gratis, one

Sketches of the Biennial
The Ocala Woman's Club could not
send delegates to the biennial in May
because, as yet, it is not a nationally
federated club. It was represented,
however, by three of its members,
Mrs. Hocker, Mrs. Gary and Mrs. Bur
ford. The last two were state alter
nates by appointment, while Mrs.
Hocker .was a delegate by virtue of
her position as state secretary.
I joined the Florida delegation at
Jacksonville, going as far as Wash Washington
ington Washington with them. The Coast Line
people had arranged for us to have
wo Pullman cars all to ourselves, and
sent along their courteous passenger
agent, Mr. Fritot, as chaperone extra
ordinary, to see to our comfort and
I had the opportunity of testing the
hospitality of the New York organi
tioa- I reached the 23rd street sta
tion at 7 a. m., a very early hour for
he city, but tho reception committee
was there, just as sweetly cordial as
if it were no trouble to get up at such
an early hour, rush through breakfast
and hurry in a drizzling rain to make
us feel welcome. It was a propituous
beginning. Different states had been
assigned different hotels, and Florida
was placed among the high and
mighty of Fifth avenue, at Centra
Park, along. with the Astors and Van
derbilts. But it seemed mighty good
to find the home folks there, Mrs,
Gary and Mrs. Hocker, and to fee
that we Ocala people are like the Elks
B. P. O. E., best people on earth.
We got busy right away and follow
ed the crowd to the Astor hotel, where
we were told to present our creden
tials and get properly launched in the
convention. ; Reaching the hotel, we
were met by numbers of discouraged
women, declaring it to be impossible
to get near the rose room for the
crowd. All of you know Mrs. Hocker,
She had started to the rose room with
her credentials and she had no idea
of deflecting from her purpose, and
we,f olio wed meekly with perfect faith
that we would get what we had come
for. Much to my surprise, however
in some way I managed to get thru
that rose room with perfect ease and
celerity, got my papers and was
waiting in the hall for perhaps five
minutes before I saw the white ha
of our leader. This was the first and
only time I ever got ahead of Mrs,
Hocker. I guess it was. because I had
had more experience with New York
crowds, since I happened to be there
during the Hudson-Fulton celebra
There- were 20,000 women attend
ing the biennial, yet excepting at the
armory and the Hotel Astor their
presence was not noticeable, either
in the streets or in the stores. Bu
the crowds were apparent at the Ful
ton celebration they came in troops
and battalions,, crowded the thoro
fares by the thousand, so I had had
experience, and in race-horse parlance
led my friend almost by a mile.
The business of the morning ac
complished, we joyfully started on
our way to, the Edison reception, the
very, best feature to me of the con
vention, because of the privilege i
gave of meeting one of the greates
men the world ever produced. Greater
than the Caesars, Alexanders or
Czars, men who by bloodshed or in
heritance have places in history. Edi
son's greatness is measured by. the
good he has done, the benefit to al
the world, making light out of dark
ness and sound out of silence. Music
he has carried to the uttermost parts
of the earth, and has shed a halo
aorund the globe.
The Edisons had planned to receive
the women on their beautiful lawn
but a drizzling ram changed their
plans. The house, spacious enough
ordinarily, was too small for such a
host of people. So like packed sar sardines
dines sardines we slowly crept through hall,
conservatory and parlor when at last
our names were called, and then re repeated

son. Edison. We had seen his picture so often
it was like meeting an old friend.
The East Orange women had pre prepared
pared prepared another pleasure for us, for
the Edison reception was followed by
a big reception at their magnificent
club house, a home which cost them
$80,000. In the big auditorium there
was a receiving line of the president
and the past state presidents of the
New Jersey clubs. Among these, we
met a charming little woman, who,
when she heard us say "from Ocala,
la.," exclaimed, "Why, I have a
son-in-law from" there," and so we
met the mother-in-law of Mr. Neil
Weathers, a charming woman, who,
by the way, we found to be one of
the most prominent women of the
staet, and term after term served as
The reception was a beautiful one
and finely finished a day full of exper experiences
iences experiences and pleasures.
I was asked to give a report of the
social side of the biennial, but T leave
that part right here: There were
banquets galore, receptions, too;
California with her aspirations to- j
wards the presidency did much enter
taining. We had our banquet at the
Netherlands, and mustered over forty
Flondians to break ; bread and sing
"Way. Down Upon the Suwanee Riv
er." Yes, the biennial was like a
three-ringed circus, but the social
side was not the most interesting
ring. Those 20,000 women irom ail
over the United States were there for
profit, not for pleasure. It was a
convention mostly of middle-aged,
serious-minded women, feeling new
responsibilities, arid reaching out to
new spheres of action.
They were there to study the prob-
ems of peace and preparedness, the
nurture of babies and prison reform
conservation, from forests to can
ning of beans and tomatoes, as one
writer put it.
1 he biennial formally opened on
Wednesday evening at the 7th regi
ment armory. We found the side
walk from steps to curb crowded
with a good-natured aggregation of
women, all wondering why policemen
stood guard on the steps and would
not let them by. Every minute added
o the congestion, but the uniformed
men seemed at a loss what to do.
Finally some one said the Lexington
avenue extrance was open. The crowd
urned. A determined Floridian was
first to reach it, only to find that en entrance
trance entrance barerd by a policeman's arm.
That was too much. She straightway
informed that minion of the law that
she hadn't come a thousand miles to
the convention, and not get in, so she
firmly but kindly pushed his arm
aside and went in, followed by the
state treasurer, but the more timid
faced about to the main doorway and
found the policeman had relented and
would passv in all showing their
badges. Mrs. Gary and I went in de delighted,'
lighted,' delighted,' but our joy was turned to dis disappointment
appointment disappointment when we were shown the
reservation for alternates. We had
plenty of company we were in the
convention, but not a part of it. We
were so far from the stage we neither
discern the features, nor hear the
voices of the speakers. We tried hard
to hear Gov. Whitman's address, but
had to take somebody's word for 1 it
that Ocala could furnish better or
brainier speakers almost any day.
Everywhere we turned our eyes the
big cards marked "Silence" stared up
in the face and we felt like little chil
dren who had to be good. Obediently
we kept silent and studied the faces
about us, the styles and the lack of
style, as long as that was interesting.
Then unable to-utterly annihilate our
selves we begun to get, acquainted
with our neighbors on the sly. Mine
asked me where I was from, after in
forming me she was from New Hamp
shire. I told her and she repeated the
trite saying of "how little the world
is," and seemed pleased to tell me that
she was corresponding with a lady
from Ocala, and sending her litera
ture. She belonged to a club which
did the philanthropic work of sending
out literature to all who were not able
to supply themselves. She had found
our lady, from her letters, to be quite
intelligent, and it was a pleasure to
In a crowd of many thousands it is
not hard to find curiosities, and they
were at the armory that night. I re
call a dazzling diamond lady, stand
ing near us. She stood, perhaps, that
all might see. She was over sixty,
dressed in a beautiful white lace
gown but little of this could be seen
for the jewels; they sparkled from
the tiara on her head, and cascaded
down the front; there were rings on
her fingers and buckles on her shoes.
Solomon in all his glory was not ar
rayed like this alternate. Out of the
west she must have come to dazzle
the east. The flashlight man hardly
needed other light for his photograph.
Then we began to notice that we were
not the only restless ones. Hundreds
of women had been polite and kept
silent, but nature was exerting itself,
and they felt as we did, that we could
be just as much entertained and far
more comfortable at our hotels than
seated stiffly in the armory where we
could neither; see nor hear. In spite
of the protests of. the chairman, an
exodus began, and we went with it,
vowing never more to return. The
auditorium was just a part of the at
tractions of the armory. There were
dozens of rooms all filled with de departmental
partmental departmental work, full of interest and
information for club workers. Then
literature was given out on all sub
jects of interest to women, and there
we found much pleasure. But delight
ful meetings were held in the ball
room of the Hotel Astor. These were
less formal, and one could get within
hearing distance. It was there I saw
Mrs. Pennybacker preside with beau beautiful
tiful beautiful dignity, little in person but big
in force. There I enjoyed the conser
vation meeting with that striking per
sonality, Mrs. Sherman in the chair.

Yellowstone and the Grand Canon.
The Sequoia, the park of the big
trees, and Crater Lake park are
nature's wonders, as well as the three
first, while the Glacier, Mesa Verde,
Rocky Mountain and Mount Rainier
parks furnish unparalleled scenery.
Conservation has many sides, and I
was struck with the appeals of the
speakers (mostly men) to the women
for their influence to help. One made
an especial appeal for our help in the
preservation of the artistic beauty of
the mall at Washington. It seems a
bill had been railroaded through Con
gress, carrying many schemes, one of
wnicn was tne erection oi a power
plant at some point along the mall.
That man was a patriot, and recog
nized the vandalism which would de destroy
stroy destroy the beauty of Washington's best
reserve. Washington is ours, and
every club woman should protest
against commercializing its national
beauty spot. The whole mall should
bear the keynote of beauty suggested
by the curve of the capitol dome, and
the exquisite, art of the library.
As this meeting was. breaking up 1
heard some woman rush enthusiastic enthusiastically
ally enthusiastically to an old man who sat next to me
and exclaim that she wanted the
honor, of shaking hands with him, that
the biennial would be a failure if she
had not met him. I was all interested
at once, and innocently turning my
back as if studying the departing
crowd, I pricked up my ears to find
out who this piece of greatness could
be. I gathered that he had been an
army officer. The dear old man was
so pleased with the admiration ex
tended him that he went into his bio
graphy in detail. He had been wound wounded
ed wounded in the "war between the states"
and unfitted for active service was
given some easy position connected
with the war department. Being call
ed upon at one time to preside at a
public meeting, he was humiliated to
realize he knew nothing whatever of
parliamentary rulings. To avoid any
future embarrassment along that line,
he decided to make a study of paY
namentary law, attending various
meetings and found that ideas var
ied widely as to parliamentary pro
ceedings", and being interested, de
cided to adjust things himself. So I
came to the conclusion that the dear
old gentleman had written a book on
parliamentary law and was consider
ed authority on the subject. I men
tion this because it was such a com comfort
fort comfort to realize that this man had, at
his first attempt to preside at a pub
lic meeting, been just as ignorant as
I had been, and therefore there was
still hope for me.
This conservation meeting was the
last I saw of the biennial, and have

BETTER THAN ANY POCKETS
For Absolute Safety, the Old Lady's
Plan Was Pretty Wei!
It was in the Pennsylvania depot at
Jersey City. A man who had been half
asleep on one of the benches for some
time suddenly roused up, carried his
hand to the breast pocket of his coat
and then called out:
"I have been robbed! Someone has
picked my pocket!"
"Have much money? asked an old
ady who sat near him.
"Sakes alive! but what a loss. Sure
you had it when you left home?"
"Of course I am."
"Didn't leave it under your pillar, or
change your coat?"
"I noticed you feeling around your
coattails before you went to sleep. Bet Better
ter Better look back there before you give
He carried his hand back, and ten
seconds later held his lost wallet up
to sight. He began to apologize and
stammer, but the old lady threw up
her hands and checked him with:
"Young man, you orter be more
keerful, you might of accused -me of
stealin that money, and it would have
been a nice thing for my church folks
to hear of, wouldn't it? When the
news got home to my old man he'd
have been so kerflustrated that he'd
have forgotten to feed the shoats or
milk the cows, and there's no knowing
how he'd have got along locking up
the house and going to bed."
"Oh, I shouldn't have accused you,
ma'am," protested the man.
"Wall, I'm glad on it, and being as
this excitement has come up about
picking pockets I guess I'll see if my
mone and ticket is safe."
And she reached down, slipped off a
calfskin shoe from her right foot, and
peered intently into it, with the re
"There's a ticket and there's a dol
lar bill, and I hain't been robbed. "'Just
try it, young man. Beats coat tail and
all : other pockets all holler. Got to
stand you on your head to git it, and
every time you sot your foot down you

Labor Will Be Scarcer;
An investigation made by some of
the railroads of the country indicated
that 500,000 "foreign-born persons
would return to Europe immediately
after the war, for various reasons.
Friends and relatives have been
killed. Their homes have been dev
astated. There has been no commu
nication between millions of families
for over a year. Other evidence indi indicates
cates indicates that some of the warring coun
tries are planning a campaign, upon
America for the purpose of induc
ing able-bodied men to return to their
native lands to aid in the rebuilding
process. They want men, and they
want the accumulated capital which
these men willlring back with them;
and 200,000 men with $500 each
would mean an addition to the capital
resources of Europe of $100,000,000. It
is probable that great stretches of Eu
rope now divided into great feudal es estates
tates estates will be broken up into small
holdings, to be sold to natives and
returned foreign-born from America
as small farms. For many nobles of
central Europe have been killed. Many
more have been 'bankrupted. The
shortage of labor will make it difficult
for them to work their estates. Jt is
not impossible that the United States
may be a country from which the
able-bodied will emigrate, rather than
a country Into which they will immi
grate. This, pf course, is a matter of
speculation. It will depend upon in
dustrial conditions in Europe on the
one hand, and industrial conditions in
America on the other. Adding to this
is the pending legislation at Washing Washington,

by means of the literacy test and
other limitations upon the number of

A process has been devised by the
Use of which gunpowder and other
high explosives can be manufactured
aboard a railway train in 'motion. The
machinery includes device for per
forming all the essential operations of
powder making, from the first com
pounder, where the elements are
mixed, through press, a cutting wheel,
a hot air drying apparatus, to a glaz
ing cylinder for giving the grains their
final polish. If the whole proves as
practical as the Inventor believes it
will its effect will be to render pow powder

in time of war than is the case at

manufacture explosives in the very

Equipped with a simple form of
thermostat, there has been introduced
an electric iron which automatically
maintains its temperature at any de desired

after which the thermostat member
turns off the current when the heat
exceeds the limit set and again closes
the circuit when the temperature falls
slightly below the lower limit.

Fogs on Great Lakes.
The Lighthouse Service Bulletin
publishes a compilation of the num
ber of hours of fog or thick weather
observed a year at 508 fog signal sta
tions during the period of 1885 to 1915.
As such stations are maintained in all
coastal regions of the- country, lnclud
ing the great lakes, which are subject
to fog, their records are a valuable
indication of the extent of this danger
to navigation. The" highest annual av
erage is 1,691 hours a year, at Petit
Manan, Me., while the highest record
for "an individual year and place Is
2,734 hours in 1807, at Seguin, Me.,
or about 30 per cent of the entire
year. Calumet harbor, near Chicago,
had 2,269 hours of fog In 1913. This
and other lake stations are affected
somewhat by smoke. On the 'Pacific
coast the highest annual average is
1,337 hours, at Point Reyes, but In the
year 1915 there were 2,145 hours of
