The county commissioners, on the
advice of the state road engineer,
have apportioned the $65,000 to be
used on the Dixie highway into $40, $40,-000
000 $40,-000 north of Ocala and $25,000 to the
south. The commissioners are bound
to follow the advice of the state en engineer
gineer engineer in regard to this matter, so we
hope he has taken everything into
consideration and advised wisely. We
have seen the report of the board of
trade committee appointed to examine
the highway, also a number of letters
from people living along the road, y
which it seems that the road to th
south of Ocala is in much worse con condition
dition condition than it is to the north. On the
other hand, the heavier traffic to the
north puts more -wear and tear on the
road. While it is true that the popu population
lation population on the northern side of the
county is much greater than on the
south, it must be remembered that
the Dixie Highway is not a local road.
It is used by the people of the entire
county, by many from all over the
state and not a few from other states.
A man from Mcintosh will be just as
much aggrieved as a man from Belle Belle-view
view Belle-view or Oklawaha if his car is stuck
iri the mud at Weirsdale. It is not
likely that the state engineer has been
swayed by local considerations. There
is nothing to do for this year except
to follow his advice, .which we hope
has been for the best.

Comments of Suffrage Leaders
The spirit which has kept alive the
41-year-old fight of the National Am American
erican American Woman Suffrage Association
for the federal amendment was shown
in the hour of defeat when Mrs. Maud
Wood Park, who has led the congres
sional forces for more than two years,
left the gallery with these .words,
"Our campaign for the next Congress
is already started."
Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, presi president
dent president of the National American Wom Woman

the International Woman Suffrage
Alliance, said: "It is not the women;
it is) the nation that is dishonored."

suffrage activities this week, because
of the meeting of the woman's com committee,

over which she is presiding as chair chairman,

"While the idea of the divine right
of kings is being abolished in the old
world, we of the new present the ridic
ulous spectacle of still clinging to the
absurd notion of the divine right of
the male sex. It is to be regretted
that the United States Congress has
failed to measure up to the spirit of
democracy, expected of it by all the
world in refusing to pass the federal
amendment for woman suffrage. Soon
we shall be in the humiliating position
of "admitting that ours is the only one
of the great nations of the earth de denying
nying denying justice to its women. When
the civil war was raging, the women
of this country were appealed to for
help in a struggle toward making this
a land of the free in more than name
only. During the war just ended they
were constantly urged to rally to the
slogan of democracy for all the peo people.

shalls fight on witji redoubled vigor
until victory has, been achieved, and
the women of America given their
rightful place in the nation for which
they stand ready to give their all."
Mrs. George. Bass, chairman of the
woman's democratic committee, wired
from California the following mes message

"Reactionary republicans, seconded

"Because Ohio by a tremendous

"In the last election, Ohio lost sight

The Ram 's-horn.able. assistant
to the Hot Spot, which makes
Chalmers a great car
a r..s i
"tHERE has beeri so much favorable comment on
the Hot Spot device of the Chalmers that often
the Ram's-horn of this "great car is overlooked.
s The Ram's-horn completes the magnificent work of
the Hot Spot, the main purpose of which is to flctcherize
or "crack up" and heat the gas coming from the carburetor.
Having done its Work the Hot Spot passes the 1 00
conditionedgas on to the Ram's-norn. Now here is whrc
an important job. begins.
Gas is a peculiar thing. It "sticks in corners," "col "collects
lects "collects at any angle," goes back to its raw state unless it is
handled quickly and scientifically.
So the Ram's-horn, as one might gather from the
name, is without sharp corners, has easy bends and entices
the gas smoothly intoeach cylinder. The inside of it is
not a rough cdsting. It is as smooth as glass.
- Note the drawing above. See that the distance from
the Hot Spot to each cylinder is the same. That is the
great secret of the Ram's-horn,
Most cars have a manifold that feeds gas into one
cylinder, whatever is left over goes on into number two,
the residue to number three and so on.
Cylinder number six is usually"starved"or gets"rawgas."
Thus you see why the Chalmers engine runs so
smoothly, why it gets every last bit of power out of gas,
why cold weui her docs not affect its starting, and why it
runs cool on a warm day.
If yu have not looked over a present day
Chalmers you have an incomplete education on
the modern motor car. For Chalmers now is
