Of course practical people see aud know that all these eflorts are humbiii;s. A ne,w issue greater than ever divided the American people in the old times of Whig and Democratic parties, now divides them. The only question that can divide parties this fall is, shall the wrar for the Union against the seceded States go on, until they are conquered, or shall it not?
Every sensible man knows that all talk about restoring old Democrat- ic principles is the veriest twaddle, de- signed merely to get votes against the further prosecution of the w ar. Every sensible man knoAVs that the success of tho Democratic candidate for the Pros idency this fall is what the rebels in arms especially desire.
Cannot any body tell why? Every effort tben to raise up tho so called Democratic Peace Party in the north, is a direct effort made to throw down the policy of sub duing the rebellion. It is a disgrace to the American Flag to hang it above such an attempt. It is adisgiaceto any man who knowingly gives such attempt his countenance and support. Why cannot all northern men who love their country, come up to the require ments of the hour, and all agree that under no circumstances shall this war Btop until this rebellion is crushed?

Every politician should Take the Press, Mow your Strawberries. As U as your strawberries arc done hearing, mow them oflF with a coramon grass scythe, and remove the vines to a manure heap.
This operation has an excellent effect ic strcngthing tho roots and incrcrsing the vigor of the runuers and new plants. Its effect, too, is seen in a few weeks upon tho old vines, in causing a healthy growth, enabling them better to stand the winter, and yielding a better crop of fruit the cnsiieing year. In gardens the operation is frequently lieglccted especially by farmers, who persist in giving but little attention to this small but very important portion of their farms.
The females of a family, "who universally delight in a strawberry bed, should see to its proper manage- ment, as well as renewing when neces Bary, and there will be no difBculty in uecuring satisfactory crops. In field culture we know this is licxt to impossible, though it can be avoided to considerable extent by us- ing other than barnyard manure for the crop.

The idea of a Captain of a cavalry company sit- ting down in front of an equal number of Indians and deciding not to attack them because if he attacked, he or some of his men might get hurt, is what may be called a ''big thing.

English Car Profile Ford GT40 Mk I Chassis number: T he failed merger in between Ford and Ferrari and the subsequent return to competition motorsport at the highest level by the American company is motoring lore.
Following their visit to Eric Broadley's business in England, they knew they had the basis for a winning car for international longdistance road racing. The resultant car was unveiled in April and the inaugural race for a GT40 was at the Nurburgring Km in May of that year. Built to near the specifications of a racing model but detuned, it is fitted with a fully trimmed interior and is completely street-legal.
They switched the dry-sump alloy V8 to a wet-sump , the same unit they had developed for the Cobra.
Wire wheels were replaced by lighter and stronger Halibrands. Along with careful attention to airflow and test driving by Ken Miles among others , this work turned the GT40 into a winner The sight of the finish at Le Mans in is burned into the brains of many enthusiasts.
That memory and the idea of owning a road car capable ofreaching mph that is a close cousin to one of the era most successful endurance racers is an exciting combination. Such an ultra-emotional response brings out the checkbooks, as does the GT40 's beauty. If the car had terrific competition history, it might have brought nearly double that. In my opinion, the return to originality was part of the value increase, but I also believe the buyers just weren't in the audience in The Christie 's Pebble Beach auction is the perfect place to sell an authentic, low-mileage, important car like this, but even Christie 's can't guarantee that the right motivated bidders will show up at every event.
In any event, the buyer now owns the premier Anglo-American sports racer of the '60s, a model that will always have historical importance, and will always have a following among serious collectors. D ear Mr. Anderson: I am interested in a comparison between a TR3A and a Morgan Plus 4 Triumph-engined as far as fun, reliability and value are concerned. I understand the TR3A has brisker acceleration, but the Morgan has better looks. The market value of a nice Morgan is slightly higher than a similar TR3A.
Is there a simple answer for this difference in price? When introduced, the Morgan Plus 4 claimed to do 0 to 60 in just over ten seconds and a top speed of mph. By , in a Plus 4 with the TR3 engine, Autocar managed 0 to 60 in less than ten seconds and a top speed comfortably over mph. By contrast, the same magazine could manage only According to these two books, both steel and aluminum were used in building the bodies of XK s, though the usage wasn't random.
In contrast, while the taillights were generally chrome, there were exceptions that do seem to occur in an unpredictable pattern. Buy the best Triumph or Morgan you can afford. Nevertheless, these historical data are not really relevant today. The knowledge and components to produce much better performance are available from any race-experienced Triumph tuner, so you can make either car go significantly faster.
Be aware, though, that it is possible to produce more power than the primitive chassis, suspension and brakes can handle. There isn't a significant difference in price. Morgans of all flavors, except for SS models, sell in the same price range. Interestingly, only 3, Plus 4s were made, compared to 58, TR3As, so you would think Morgans would be far more valuable.
But they've never had as large a following as the TR3s, and hence their values have been static for a decade, and don't show any signs of movement. With performance and price dismissed as relevant factors in your purchase decision, which car should you buy? The cars have wildly different appearances; if one looks terrific to you and the other is rather ugly, your choice is made, isn't it?
If the styling of both appeals equally, then try to get a drive in a decent example of each. Even though they are both classic British sports cars, the sliding-pillar front suspension of the Morgan has a decidedly different feel from the more contemporary Triumph. If, after a test drive, you still can't decide, then either buy the best car you can within your budget, or simply flip a coin.
We suggest heads, Morgan, and tails, Triumph. Or vice versa. Dear Mr. Anderson: I've found a XK M that has aluminum in the bonnet, doors and taillights.
The rest is steel. Also, all the pictures I can track down show the taillights as chrome. Do you know where I might find some information on the likelihood Jaguar mixed and matched aluminum with steel in their XK s? He figured he'd build a few dozen hand-tooled versions each year, using aluminum for all panels since it was easy to form. When the public went crazy over the new car, he immediately arranged for tooling in steel, but produced of the all-alloy cars while tooling for the steel cars was underway.
Cook also notes that the front parking lights were chrome on the alloy cars, as well as the steel cars produced through mid, when they were replaced by light nacelles faired-in to the front fenders. In his book, Porter confirms the use of alloy throughout the prototypes, but tells us that when the steel-bodied cars were introduced, their bonnets, boot lids, and doors were made of aluminum, but the shrouds and fenders were stamped from sheet steel. This practice continued throughout production of the XK s, from through He further states that the rear stoplights were housed in a casting of what he calls "monkey-metal" and that these housings generally were chromeplated.
However, he notes that there were some XK s made in with housings painted body color instead of being chromed. Unfortunately, production records don't indicate which specific cars got the body-colored versions, and Porter doesn't indicate that these exceptions were produced in sequence, so we can only assume that for a short period owners could specify body-colored taillight housings instead of chrome if they wished.
This is one of those circumstances where the individual owner needs to rely on what he finds on his own car. If the taillights show evidence of having been chromed, then it can be assumed they were probably that way as original.
However, if the housings don't have any chrome on them, and the car was manufactured in or , then the restorer can put them back that way.
However, if the taillights are not on the car, or the car was manufactured before or after , then a restorer concerned about originality could confidently use chromed taillight housings. Yours, for example, should have chrome-plated taillight housings. In any event, unless you are planning to enter and score high at Jaguar concours, so long as your taillights are nicely done, it probably doesn't matter much which direction you go.

Nearly every weekend there is an auction somewhere, where buyers and sellers come together to determine the true value of these old cars.
As this is our January issue, it's traditional to spend a moment pondering the next 12 months. Given the extraordinary number of noreserve cars to be offered by Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, a great success for their event is almost assured. And positive reports from the Valley of the Sun will help boost the confidence of buyers throughout the world.
Lesser cars will increase as well. First-generation Camaros have been skyrocketing, and they're not about to slow down. The Camaro surge is particularly interesting, as for many years Mustangs took top dollar in the pony car arena. This was one of the rare market segments in which a Ford would beat a Chevrolet in value on a regular basis. But over the past five years, Camaros have just keep climbing and climbing, while Mustangs, with the exception of Shelbys, have remained relatively quiet.
SCM continues to counsel collectors to listen to their hearts and respect their wallets when buying a car. A great deal on a car you really don't like very much is no deal at all, no matter how cheap it is. We don't predict a return to the price explosion our condolences to all the folks who have been hoarding Ferrari Boxers , just a steady climb for properly done cars.
Buy thoughtfully and enjoy the ride. Top 1 0 Teri Sales This Issue 1. Their RM Classic Car Productions Division operates two dealership-style showrooms—one in Toronto and the other in Ypsilanti, Michigan—and puts on several auctions each year that have a broad array of affordable cars, rather than the milliondollar lots we see at Amelia, Monterey and the Biltmore.
They come to the Novi Expo Center, in Michigan, twice each year. This fall's event included a special offering from Richard and Linda Kughn's highly respected collection. They offered 72 of their approximately vehicles at no reserve, ranging from restored woody wagons to outstanding low-mileage classics.
While few of these lots were concours-level, several all-time high prices were set. There were bargains as well, such as the collection of Tucker parts that included one chassis, two engines, tons literally of body and trim parts, along with the original blueprints for a proposed Tucker convertible.
At the other end of the scale, top dollar figures were seen for an Edsel, of all things. Outside of the Kughn Collection, the usual grab-bag assortment of sports, classic, muscle and special interest vehicles were available. Only three of the eight Porsches offered went to new owners. On the organizational side, less than a month before this sale, RM announced the acquisition of Worldwide Auctioneers, a small company created by John Kruse and Rod Egan that was headquartered in Auburn, Indiana.

Charles, Illinois, is a perfect place to hold a collector car auction. Warm, well ventilated and with plenty of seating and indoor display room along with two large tents , the space allowed for the cars to be shown attractively. The full-color catalog, while not up to Christie's standards, was a huge step forward from last year's no-catalog event.
