One motorist oven goes so far as to claim that he has beeu able' to increaso - his xnilenge. per gallon as much as 20 per cont., though it would seem that the iucronse cannot be due to tho uso of the camphor alone. * Tho idea is not new, of course, for Curtiss, at presont of aeroplane fame, used it a number of years ago in li(s racing motor cycles, and it is said ho sometimes uses it now in his aeroplnno en giucs.

MISTAKEN IDENTITY. A story is told o! a log-roller who, while working on a log drivo, fell into the water, lie struggled (or a while, and at Inst, ili/.zy and nearly exhausted, managed to grasp a big log and hold on to it. Tho current was so strong and swift that it carried - his body under tho Jog, until his feet stuck out on the other side. Just ns a comrade grasped him by the shoulders he caught sight of his own feet protruding on tho other side of the log. "I can hold on » bit longer !" he gasped. "Save ihe chap that's in head first, if you can." 'J'wo American fanners met a day or two after a cyclone had swept over their farms. "She shook things up pretty bad out -nt my place," said one, strok ing his whiskers, meditatively. "By the way, Hiram," lie added, " that now barn o' youru get hurt at all?"
