Cio-' let-le-Duc. The panel shows a saint bound to a wheel, the spokes of which are two-edged swords. Prof. Stohl- man thought it must be St. George. The origin of the panel, however, remained a mystery until he happen- ed upon a book by the Abbe Dela- porte which described, with accom- panying illustrations, the stained glass windows of the Chartres Cathe- dral. There was one illustration re- sembling in every detail the panel at Princeton. To make certain of this conclusion, Prof. Stohlman found a description of the Cathedral windows by M.

TROLLY LINES OWN 7777 MOTOR BUSSES According to figures prepared by the American Electric Ra,ilway Asso- ciation, there are now 372 street rail- way companies owning 7777 motor busses operating over 16,334 miles of routes. This compared with 16 com- panies on the first of January six years ago operating only 73 busses over 35 miles of routes---an increase! of more than 1000 percent in a little over six years. Of these companies, 324 operate busses as auxiliaries to their other forms of transportation and 48 small companies have abandoned street car operations entirely and substituted busses in their stead. These 48 com- panies own only 252 busses and op- erate over routes aggregating 487 miles in length. While the majority of these busses are driven by gasoline motol~s, it'is estimated that approximately 1000 have a combination gasoline- elec- tric drive, for which the power is generated by a gasoline motor direct- ly connected to an electric generator, and the current thus produced is u~ed to operate electric motors directly connected to the rear wi~eels. It is claimed that this type of drive has many advantages over ~he ordinary gasoline bus, in that there is less shock to the mechanism in starting and stopping, and that this also re- sults in greater comfort to the pas- sengers. It is also claimed that such busses have a longer useful life than the straight gasoline engine bus. Recently the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company, which was a pio- neer in the use of gas-electric busses, has been experimenting with a gaso- line engine which will use elther gas- oline or fuel oil. This engine is sup: iplied with two car.buretors--one for Compliments LITTLE ROCK, ARK. i Compliments of Compliments G. W. MASSERY J. K.

The engine is started on gasoline and af- ter it is warmed up a switch is made to the fuel oil Barburetor. As the cost of fuel is approximately half that of gasoline and the amount of DOMINOES Not one in a hundred of the peo- ple who in every country of the world play dominoes is aware of the reason why the game bears that particular name. A domino was orgiinally an ecclesiastical cloak, black in color, and furnished with a hood. Next, the hood, of itself, was called a domino. Then a loose garment, something like the original cloak, and worn at mas- querades, received the name; and, fi- nally, a half-mask worn over the face for purposes of disguise was also termed a domino. The color, black, seems to be the distinctive feature of energy is equal or higher, it is ex- all these varieties; and as that is the pected that the cost of operation of color of the backs of the pieces used busses will be materially reduced in the game, they, too, received that thereby.
