A more common tire injury is shown in illustration 15.. This effect is due to faulty alignment of the front wheels. A bent axle or steering knuckle may be responsible or possibly the demountable rim was not perfectly applied. Accidents are not always responsible for the front wheels being out of alignment, but frequently this Is the case. All ears, through no fault in manufacture, are subject to this condition, and the Urst Indication will be given when you notice the tread of one or both tires wearing as though a rough file had been used on them. If the tread becomes worn through and the fabric affected, then the tire is beyond repair. Correct trouble quickly to avoid necessity of this. There is but one remedy, and that is cart'. Test your front wheels vrequently ami be sure that they are in proper alignment. Neglected Cuts. Illustration C shows a casing with two-thirds of its life wasted, for neglected cuts in the touch rubber tread have caused it to blister. In this instance sand and dirt have been forced into the cuts and worked around under the tread. Note tb.e several large bumps where the sand and dirt have accumulated. If-;t tire Is carefully watched for these cuts a plastic will heal them quickly and no damage will result. The tire shown at I shows the effect of skidding, caused by a sudden application of the brakes. Part frt its fact' h:ts been scraped off. Purely carelessness. GEORGE B. M'GINTY tin? 1 w? 1!

Good Advice to Follow. If you follow the advice given in this article you will jret more service from your tires, and at the end of the reason your expense will have been so much less than it ever was before that yu will no longer neglect your tires. The illustrations shown here are of the genuine abused tires, hundreds of which are discarded every day throughout the Cnited States before they have given the service for which, they were built. The mileage was built into each tire, but the car driver lost It through carelessness. Illustration A shows the result of improper application of tire chains. When chains arc used they dmnld not be applied tightly. Leave them .Inst looe enough so that every time the wheel turns the cross chains will not strike the ame spot in the lire.

The Scientific American in illustrating and describing an overshoe for tires, the invention of W. J. Mullikin. 2oo West Flfty-se.-ond street. New-York says: The Invention relates to tires having a casing enclosing an inflatable tube. A Sectional Perspective View of the Shoe as Applied. 'Xlie object is to provide an overshoe to prevent tbe easing being subjected to undue wear, and to reduce the danger of puncture of the inner tube to a minimum. Another object is to permit of making the overshoe of an inexpensive material. The inner face opposite the tread is provided with projections and engaging corresponding recesses to hold the overshoe against movement longitudinally or transversely. The shoe when worn can be readily replaced. MHTOir11()0ILE For the first eleven months of 1P20, 0,470 motor vehicles, valued at ?1S,-379,070, were imported into South Africa.

Signal for a stop or turn to the cars behind by holding out the left hand. Apply brakes slowly. Chance speed rates slowly. Drive carefully. Be prepared to help any motorist in trouble on roads distant from garages. Be prepared to give, pedestrian "lifts" on country roads. Stop car and engine when meeting drovers with sheep, swine or cattle on country roads. Bark only at side of roads, leaving fairway. . When buying produce in the country park alongside road, not on the road. When parking at night leave warning lights. Have headlight dimmers and use them when meeting and passing other motorists at night. When picnicking do not trespass to gather wild flowers, tree branches, blossoms, fruit or shrubs. . When picnicking clean up thoroughly, removing from s'ght all cans, papers and rubbish. Give all vehicles, especially loaded trucks, a good half of the road. Take hills on the right side of the road. Go over the crest carefully. Avoid Jcoasting or speeding around curves at foxt of hills. Be courteous to pedestrians. Do not drive your car at them full tilt and laugh 'when they jump. Do not splash water on them as they stand at crossings or near curbs waiting for you to pass. Avoid streets cars carefully at stops. Learn and follow the local traffic rules, speed limits and driving ordinances. These are made for the common good of all drivers, including yourself, and of all pedestrians. DAILY CLEANSING FOR TIRES Drivers Should Be Compelled to Wash Off Mud With Sponge Cuts Easily Detected. Drivers or the men In charge of this class of work should be compelled to give the tires a daily cleansing. Mud should be washed with a little water, a soonge not too wet be- J Ing -used. Not only Is this good for tires, but It enables easy detection of small cuts and abrasions, which should be repaired at once before' they have a chance to become larger.
