A swiveled pipe connection with the hydrant as is shown in the illustration is of advantage in the garage for filling the radiator and for washing the car. The connection is two lengths of pipe about 1 inch in diameter, joined by means of four standard elbow fittings and a short coup ling. This is attached to the water- main brought up about 3 feet from the floor, with the cut-off valve placed on this pipe. The water main is usually located in the end of tlje garage farthest from the entrance.

TIRE MADE FROM WHALE SKIN First Soaked in Tanning Mixture Until Perfectly Soft and Then Plunged Into Mold. At the automobile show in Seattle, Wash., a tire was exhibited made from the hide of a I'aciRc coast whale. The whale sk:n, thick ami rubbery, was soaked iu the tanning mixture until perfectly soft and then plunged into the mold. At the tannery it was said that such tires can be manufactured at one-fourth the cost of those of rubber. Hides from shark, wolf fish and whales can be used.

Sooner or later your electrical system will fail to charge the battery. When that happens your engine will begin to miss explosions and shortly after will refuse to run. Before this calamity overtakes you there will be plenty of warning. The lights will go down more than usual when the starter is used. They will brighten when you speed up the engine and grow dim when you slow down. These j signs point to a weak battery and j should not be disregarded. If you j have been observant you will have , noticed that the ammeter registered a , low charging rate. This indicates that : the generator is not charging as it 1 should. Rut the fault may be in the 1 driver and not in the generator at all. If the starter or the lights are used too j much the current will be drawn from i Jhe battery faster than it is being charged. So note that your battery cets the proper balance. If the car is run much at night the battery may not receive enough current. Run the engine more during the daytime, so as to replace the current that ha been drawn from it. When Charging System Fails. If the charging system has failed, due to some defect, have it attended to at a service station, and have the battery charged immediately. Some owners prefer to charge their own batteries from the lighting system in the house. This is a practical melhod and one that will grow, especially where servic-c stations are not available. Special apparatus is required, but it is not expensive. It may be connected to any lamp socket usinc volt current. This may be direct or alternatinc, th apparatus differing according to which current i used. For direct current a rheostat is employed which brine the current down to the rieht amperes, usually ten amperes for the average battery used en a startinc and liehting system. For alterating current a rectifier must be used to give direct current and to give the right amperage. The positive of the battery must be connected to the positive lead from the apparatus and the negative of battery to the negative lead. This runs the charging current into the positive of the battery, reversing the chemical composition of the plates. Then, when the change is complete, charging is stopped and the current may he drawn from the positive in the usual manner. Prepare for Charging. Refore charging you must see that the electrolyte covers the plates. Noth-inc but distilled water; should ever be added for this purpose, and then only after the battery is charged. The electrolyte should cover the plates at least a quarter of an inch at sill times. Hav ing inspected and corrected this condi tion, the filling caps should be re moved to allow the gas to escape. Then adjust the amperage according to the capacity of the battery. A discharged battery should start charg ing at one-tenth capacity. Thus a 100 ampere-hour battery should start at ten amperes ; a ,sixty ampere-hour at six amperes. In an hour or so the hydrogen gas will start to come off very frely. This is known as gassing or boiling. When it gases freely you diminish the charging rate one or two amperes. The battery will be fuilly charged when the electrolyte reads 1.275 to 1,300 on the hydrometer. This will take about ten hours. The volt meter reading will be about seven volts but the hydrometer test is more satisfactory. Gov. Harding Further Describes Working of U. S.

The cost of running the United States government for the fiscal year of 1022 will be $4,550,lU0.0i. according to revised estimates placed before the house ways mrl means committee by Secretary Mellon. He estimated that receipts would yield S,"AKW"1 and customs $37.-im.X0. leaving S3.S30.OO0.O0rt to be raised in taxes. For the fiscal year 1022 the present law would yield S3.S7.".O.0O in internal revenue and customs. The revised laws would yield 5n0;V.O0.0'O, Mellon said, if the rovdo!i of the corporation, income and excess profits taxes is made effective January 1, 1021. -These figures do not include the estimated receipts from the suggested 1-cent tax n first las mail matter and 2-cent tax on lank checks." he said. '-Those, it is estimated, will vield sll7.Oi!0V a year, or $72,000.-tii from stamps and M.Vto.OO( from bank chocks." With these estimates Secretary Mellon also submitted his recommendation for lax revision. "This revenue." said Mellon, "can U- reduced with safety only if. and the extent that, further reductions arc enforced in the spending depart ments of the government." Secretary Mellon estimates an increased revenue from the new tariff law. if enacted by December next, cf STO.t . t for the six months of the f.-cal 1022. and SKO.Ori.noO in ih- risi-al year 1023.

BURY CARUSO IN NAPLES Funeral of Late Tenor Interrupted by War Among Camera Men Singer's Jewels Guarded. Naples. Italy, Aug. 6. Incidents not altogether pleasant occurred while the Caruso funeral procession was on its way to the cemetery. There was a veritable war among photographers seeking to take pictures of the scene, one of them maintaining he had received the exclusive right from the family of Caruso to take the pictures and that all others must be excluded from that privilege. Operators of moving picture machines alo quarreled, a local house claiming the exclusive right to transfer to the celluloid views of the streets traversed. This claim was up held in certain quarters and others were not permitted to operate. Measures to protect the property owned by the late Enrico Caruso have been taken by the authorities. There was some uneasiness over a string of pearls that the de?d tenor bought in Pnris ten years asro and said to be valued at 1.0CV.yw francs. The loca tion also of a ring set with a valuable diamond was the subject of preoccu pation in some quarters. CAMP GRANT CAPTAIN SHOT Prison Farm Commandant Wounded by Bul'et Fired From Ambush.
