Dewey has never before remained

mother know where he was. and this
fact, coupled with the tender age of

"I was In my room yesterday after
noon about 2 o'clock and Dewey came
to mo for some money with which to
buy his papers. I was busy at the
time and told him to run away and
come back later. He walked out of
the room and that Is the last I have
seen or heard of him. I supposed he
was out at play with some of the other
children In the neighborhood, but when
I went out and called him he was no
where to be found.
Dewey never remained away from
me before, and I am satisfied he is not
staying away now of his own accord.
I believe somebody has kidnaped him

purpose. He loves me too well to wil

Mlneola, L. I., Oct. (.—Louis Wag-'
ner, driving the 100-horsepower Dar-
racq car, entered by C. DeMegot, of
the Automobile' Club of France, won
the Vanderbilt automobile cup race
over the Nassau county, L. I., course
today In a maniacal contest of speed
and skill that cost one life, and the
Injury of sixteen people in accidents.
Wagner’s time for the 297.1 miles of
the course was 4 hours, 60 minutes and
10 2-6 seconds, an average of nearly
62 mllea an hour. The others who fin
ished before Referee William K. Van
derbilt, Jr., called off the race to pre
vent a disaster runong the 600,000 peo
ple who thronged the course, after the
winner was announced were:
How They Finished.
Vincent Lancia, Italian, 120-horse-
power Flat car; time 4:63:211-5.
Clement Duray, French, 120-horse
power Dietrich car; time, 4:53:87 3-6. ;
Camllo Jenatsy, German, 130-horse
power Mercedes car; time, 6.04:88. '
From the fifth lap on, barring an ac
cident, Wagner was so well In the lead
that he was never headed. He kept
on swlngfn around the 29:91-ml!e
course, maintaining his terrific speed
without a break. Do what they could
the three foreigners plying their cars
to the utmost behind him, could not
put down his gain.
Wsgner In FronL
Lap after lap, Wogner whizzed along
always to.the front, but there was a
gasp of excited fonr hanging over the
grand stand at Westbury as word
came on Wagner’s last lap that he had
been compelled to stop at Bull's Hsad
turn, 14 miles from the starting line,
because of trouble with hie tires.
At the time the leader was 0 min
utes ahead of Lancia. In 4 minutes
word was flashed from Bull’s Head
that Wagner had repaired his machine
and was up and off- at more than a
Gruelling Speed Trial.
With the lead of but 2 minutes left
him, Wagner drove his car for every
ounce of potentiality there was In It.
He came tearing down the stretch
along the Jericho turnpike leading to
the finish In an ever-increasing hurst
of speed nnd flashed past the grand
stand amid a hurst of applause.
Then came the Lancia, followed by
Duray, Jenatsy and Clements In quick
succession. The last lap had been a
gruelling trial of speed and endurance,
for all four of these who were push
ing Wagner as hard as they could. It
was the greatest contest of Its kind
that has ever been held In America.
Many in Danger.
That there was no more than one
person killed during the race was a
marvel. The thousands upon thou

sinuous lane, repeatedly surged on to

Exposition practically has been laid on the shelf. About $350,000 was pledged for
it. If anything is needed in Atlanta half as badly as an exposition, it is an armory that
can be used as a Convention Hall, with a City Hall front, as it were. One half of the
$350,000 pledged would build it. The Georgian moves that all the subscribers to the
exposition pledge one half the amount of their subscriptions for the “Capital City
