A few hundred years ago man was Just

Speed Over Land.
Remarkable as is the time record
oredlted to the Maple Laf III., it is In
watsr travel that man seems to have
made the slowest progress. Overland he
has travelled more than twice as fust as
ho has on water. In the air, recent as
are his efforts to master that element,
ho has achieved almost as great speed
as he has on the surface of the land.
Man never has and never will devise a
means of darting through space at a rate
that will permit him even to approximate
many of nature's own foroes. But those
elements that he cannot rival he does
at least harness and bring virtually be

fifty-seven miles an hour Is by far the
