Fithen, of Steubenville, Ohio, who when he was 9 years of age, met with the mis- fortune of losing both arms in a rail- road accident. Mr. Fithen since that time has accomplished many difficult feats, such as writing, dressing and undressing himself, swimming, bicycle and unicycle trick riding, and above all, he operates, drives and controls his own 6 cylinder 60 horse power “Oakland” car. Fithen's best time to date is 58 miles an hour. Pub. and Copyrighted 1913 by Kraus Mfg. Co., N. Y.
