THE WHITE STKAM1R WHICH MADE A SLCCI'SSM I, PimiC DEMONSTRATION Ol KEROSENE
AS EUEL ON THE RECENT 2630-MILE (HIDDEN TOUR.
The most interesting announce-
ment ever made in connection with
the automobile industry was un-
doubtedly that made a month or two
ago to the effect that the new models
of tho White Steam Cars could be run
on kerosene, or coal oil, instead of
gasoline. Everyone at once recog-
nized that the use of the new fuel
would add materially to tho advan-
tages which tho White already pos-
sessed over other types of cars.
There were some people, however,
who were sceptical as to whether or
not the new fuel could be used with
complete success, and, therefore, the
makers of tho White Car, the White
Company, of Cleveland. Ohio, deter-
mined to make a public demonstra-
tion of the new fuel in the 1909 Gild-
From the standpoint of the public,
no test more satisfactory could have
been selected. First of all, the dis-
tance covered on the Glidden Tour,
from Detroit to Denver anel thence to
Kansas City, was 2G50 miles. This
was certainly more than sufficient to
bring out any weaknesses, if such bad
existed. Still moro important was
the fact that the car was at all times
while on the road under the supervi-
sion of observers named by those
who entered other contesting cars
Therefore, it would have been impos
siblo for the driver of the White to
have even tightened a bolt without

One foeid that has stood out promt

the enactment of these laws as it
could possibly be is Quaker Oats:

A Question of Grammar.
Hetty's uncle>, who was a school
teacher, met lier on the street one ;
beautiful May day and asked her if
she was going out with tho Maying j
"No, I ain't going "
"Oh, my little dear," said her uncle,
"you must not say 'I ain't going,' " and
ho proceeded to give her a little lesson
in grammar. "You are not going. He
is not going. We are not going. You
are not going. They are not going
Now, can you say all that, Hetty?"
"Sure I can," she replied, making a
courtesy. "There ain't nobody going."
The complete success of the new-
fuel while on the 21150-Uillo public
test and the advantages gained
through its use were well described
in the following dispatch which the
orrespondent of the New York Sufi
sent to his paper at the conclusion of
"A feature of the tour which was
watched with special interest was
that the White Steamer used kero-
sene, or 'coal oil,' as fuel instead of
gasoline. The new fuel worked
splendidly throughout the 26.r>0-miln
journey, and all claims made in its
behalf were fully proven. First of
all, as regards cheapness, tho White
driver secureel kerosene all along the
route from 1! cents to 10 cents cheap-
er per gallon than was paid for gaso-
line. Secondly, the new fuel was
handled without any precautions, and
it was not unusual to see kerosene
being poured into the fuel tank while
the crew of the car and an interested
crowd. stoeid by with lighted cigars
and cigarettes. At the finish of the
tour, the White was tho only car per-
mitted by tho authorities to enter
Convention Hall, where tho technical
examination took place, without
draining its fuel tank. Thirdly, tho
new fuel proved to be absolutely
without smoke or smell. Fourthly,
kerosene could be purchased at what
ever part of the route was most coil
venient, and not once during the trip
through the ten States of the Middle
West was there found a grocery store
where kerosene was not readily and
cheaply obtainable. Finally, the
amount of fuel used on the trip
showed that kerosene is at least
fifteen per cent, more efficient, gallon,
for gallon, than gasoline. The car In
other respects made a most crodltublttj
showing, and there was'the usual riv-l
Ury among tho observers to be as-
signed to tho White ho that they
could ride with the maximum of com-
fort. Tho only adjustments or re-
pairs charged against the car during
the long trip were tightening a lubri-
cator pipe and w iring] a damaged mud
guard. These penalties were not. in-
llicted until more than 2000 miles
had been completed with an absolute-
ly perfect score."
A particularly interesting feature
of the new White Steamer is that
either kerosene or gasoline may be
used as fuel. The necessary adjust-
ments so that the' fuel may he changed
from kerosene to gasoline, or vic
versa, may be made in a couple of
minutes; but so completely successful
lias kerosene proved to be, that it is
not believed that any purchasers will
care to use gasoline.

$4000-model—exceed their most san
guine expectations. It Is evident that

has contidenea in—with kerosene—

—is thoroughly appreciated by
