ROUND-THE-WORLD TOUR. I Mr. Chas. J. Glidden, the American millionaire I motorist, has started upon another "round-the- world tour a-wheel. He has already encircled the globe once by motor and steamship, and has covered some 25,000 miles in his car in 24 coun- 1 tries. He has visited 8,000 towns and villages, motored within the Arctic circle, and travelled along the most southerly road in the world (in New Zealand). Mr. Glidden leaves Marseilles for India, and then begins motoring through India, Burmah, Ceylon, Siam, Cochin China, Korea, and Japan, and then on to the United States, which he expects to reach in June next year. He hopes to be back in England later on in the year. It is the finest possible way of seeing the world," he says. He ia using a 24-h.p. Napier car, and likes to do about 100 miles a day. In all his travels he has never had a breakdown of any importance, the longest delay being less than an hour. When the Fijians saw his motor- oar (the first time they had seen one) they promptly christened it The Father of all Devils!" Canni- bal Tom" (a noted Fijian, who had participated in 48 feasts) once remarked affably to Mr. Glidden You would make good eating."
