Adolph Voight has an automobile that performs peculiar feats. Adolph is thinking of joining the circus for he has almost mastered the loop the loop trick. He left his car standing in front of Mrs. Montag’s residence on the side hill, and stopping the car crosswise in the road to hold it from going downhill while he went in the store to trade, and forgetting he had left the gear in reverse, cranked it and immediately it backed down the steep bank and over the sidewalk, but quick as thought Adolph jumped in the car and being of brave disposition he reversed the car and ran down the embankment.
