Herman Hough, the rural carrier
on route number one running out of
this city, has made a Rood record on
his route with his car. During seven
months and fifteen days in which he
did not miss a trip with his car, he
drove 7.500 miles, and during the
time consumed five hundred gallons
of gasoline, making an average of
fifteen miles per gallon.
In all this time he had no engine
trouble and no work was done on
his car with the exception of grind
ing the valves once himself. The car
is two years old, and this looks like
a good record, more especially when
you stop to consider the condition of
the roads on his route, which are
