men almost invariably pinning their faith on Franklin cars.
Eleven cars started en their way from Yosemite Valley to Los Angeles in
a competitive run. For 374 1-2 miles, over dirt and payement, up steep hills
and down again; they conserved every drop of oil, gasoline and water possible.
A Franklin on same trip averaged 28.8 miles to the gallon and thus won in its
class with clean sweep. Used 12 gallons gasoline and four pints of oil. It is
the most sensational win in three years of this famous run.

HEATING THE SCHOOL HOUSES
We have noticed, not only in this
town but some others, that an abuse
may go on for a long time and nobody
say anything about it. But let some
one speak out in meeting, and then
everybody else will try to talk at once.
It was Monday that the Star editor
was told something about the very
uncomfortable condition of the high
school house, something that had not
been complained of in his hearing be before.
fore. before. He spoke to several school pat patrons
rons patrons about it, and they almost tumbled
over each other to tell him how their
children had suffered in the cold days
o this winter. That night he wrote
an article on the subject, and when it
came it it seemed to strike a popular
chord on a loud note. Nobody has
disputed its truth, and nearly every everybody
body everybody has praised it.
We regret to find, however, that we
have at least halfway aggrieved some
of our jjood friends, the district school
tiustees. One of them was sorrow sorrowfully
fully sorrowfully describing to the Star yesterday
the difficulties the board had to meet,
and half in sadness, half in jocular
malice, threatened to resign and have
the Star editor elected in his place.
There is no use trying to pass the
buck to this editor. The only office
he would accept from the public would
be the vice presidency of the United
States, and he isn't keen for that. We
are very well aware that the office of
school trustee is unpaid, onerous and
thankless, but we think it would be
much better for the three citizens now
in charge to hold their offices and
profit by the few mistakes they have
made rather than resign because of
some criticism which they can easily
avoid incurring again. We don't know
of any better men to fill their places.
There is no reason why this heating
business should cause any heart heartburning.

house school-house can't be properly warmed, the
children should be sent home on ex extra

this to our begrieved friend, and he
said that if this action was taken the
teachers would have to lose their pay
fcr all such days omitted from school
If we were on the board of trus trustees,
tees, trustees, and had to choose between a
dozen or so of teachers losing a day's
pay, and three or four hundred chil children
dren children passing six or seven hours in
dVmp and chilly misery, the teachers
would lose every time. But thi3 is not
necessary. We consulted the super superintendent

W. D. Cam, and he said that the trus trustee

would be most unjust if they should,
and it must be remembered that teach teachers
ers teachers suffer as much as the pupils from
their cold class rooms. Unless some something
thing something is done to remedy the trouble,
we are afraid that a number of our
teachers will not only refuse to return
to Ocala next school term, but will
tell on the town what miserable place
they have had to teach in on cold days.

4 new Elegance of JLine
Seen in this Cha inters
T'S a car very easy to look at ; and there's a wealth of com'
fort in those new type seat cushions of this Chalmers.
Besides, this new elegance has in no way penalized roominess.
At the radiator the lines are high. At the rear they are low.
From the cowl back the top line of the coach is low, but
as you sit in the car you have a feeling this line is high.
Once in motion this position becomes even more alluring as
you cling to the seat, note the absence of sidesway, and feel
that the car is hugging the road closely.
Particularly is your enthusiasm stirred when you observe the
ease of the engine's effort, its intense silence, the quick response
when you turn loose the power stream.
You tacitiypay a compliment to Hot Spot and RamVhorn,
for they have Fletcherized the raw gas, utilized the last drop of
power that nature stored away.
And you admire a Chalmers the more for it, for in addition
to its beauty of action, it is arrayed in new garments that are
refreshing to a degree.
