' Packard Qualifies As Deep Sea Diver When Bridge Drops When a North Carolina mountain Stream is taken with a sudden insane fit of temper, motorists, pedestrians all people, movable property, live stock, everything will do well to give the erstwhile gentle brook a wide, wide berth. Commodore Ernest Ljc Jahnefee of new Orleans, who has his summer residence at Ashville, N. C, abides by the above rule, but he got caught in a storm recently, on a trip from Ashville, to ioxoway. He was oh liged to- cross a small bridge. The stream, with a vicious cunning, hai so weakened the foundations that the bridge was fairly a trap for M Jamicke and his Packard Twin Six touring car. v. When the automobile was fairly on the bridge, the structure gave way. the car turned over and disappeared leaving only part ot on, rear wheel and a tender showing above the tur bulent water. Mr. Jahncke was ob liged to swim desperately to get away. "This accident occurred at 2 o'clock "and with the help of farm hands and a good pair of oxen, we were able to get the machine out of the creek, as the water had receded in a tew hours to enable us to work. When we right ed it, much to the 'surprise of myself and the onlookers, I tried the car and the machine actually started I How ever, when the car turned over, 't batteries were emptied and we knew we would need distilled water to re' pleniah them. This seemed a knotty problem, until we thouKht ot two bot ties of pop which had stayed in the machine. We poured the contents of these two bottles into the battery. "At 9 o'clock that night we were back home, having made the trip of sixty miles with our own power. The only damage done to the Twin Six by its fall and submersion consisted of a torn top and two slightly bent fenders." .

Bate, engineer and efficiency expert of the Mitchell company. "My attention was recently called to a peculiar accident that proves to me the worth of the present use of lighter but tougher steels in automobile con struction. "In Juniata, Cal., D. E. Parker, president of the First Na tional bank of that city, collided with and knocked a large suburban trolley car completely off the track. "The automobile was only slightly damaged, but the trolley car whs de railed and ran almost into the en trance doors of ex-Sheriff Hugh's store, doing about $100 damage. "Mr. Parker was driving his Mitchell aiding at the rate of about ten miles an 'hour, and with him were his daugh ter, his. two grandchildren and some friends. The Mitchell struck the trol ley just ahead of the front trucks, i causing it to leave the tracks and crash through a six-inch iron post in font of Hugh's store and only brought up at the entrance to the store. ..The occupants of the Mitchell miraculously escaped injury, with the exception of Miss Alice Jones, who suffered a slight injury to her nose, caused by being thrown against the front seat. The Mitchell proceeded under its own power - to a garage, where the hood, fenders and lamps, the only damages t the car, were re paired. v , -Bee Want Ads Produce Results.

You will never get full value out of your cr until you oil the springs There is more friction bearing surface in a set of auto springs than in all the rest of the car. Springs are exposed and quickly rust, the result is squeaking and jerking. Stiff, dry, inactive springs mean hard riding, broken spring leaves and the necessity of shock absorbers. Well lubricated springs take the bumps out of the road, save tires and frame, and make riding a comfort and pleasure'. The action of springs is intended to be smooth. To accomplish this, they must be oiled. : aLWrnmorm-ATTAtm WE CAN OIL THKM FOR 25 CENTS. Out device fits over the springs and oils them uni formly, and will outlast the life of your car.
