Means Found for Injecting Into Cylinders Sufficient Amount of Gasoline to Vaporize and Mix With Air. Many automobiles require a sure-acting priming device to cause the engine to start firing at once, instead of eomielling the starting motor to whir for long periods, which puts a heavy drain on the storage Imtterv. There. fore, some means must be found of injecting Into the cylinders a sufficient amount of gasoline so that enough will vaporize and mix with the air in the combustion chamber to form an ignlta-ble mixture. The best of these is one that can be operated from the driver's seat. Obtain an ordinary sight-feed oil cup, as shown in the illustration. Attach it to a suitable part of the car, such as the dash, or mount It on the engine block, above the carburetor. the use of one-eighth-inch copper pipe, like that for the gasoline line, the cup should be connected with the Intake manifold directly above the vertical tube to the carburetor. Then, by the .adjustment of the feed-valve on the cup. the correct amount of gasoline is admitted to the manifold in the right place. In this way all cylinders will receive the same mixture, and of course will develop maximum power. After the engine has started well, the feed-valve cup can be closed. This method is far more reliable than prim- Save your storage battery by equipping your car with this simple sure-acting primer. ing-cups on cylinders, for, when the engine is primed through them, a greater quantity is injected than is needed for one explosion, and for this reason there is a certain amount of vapor formed, regardless of low temperature, which then finds its way past the piston-rings into the crankcase and mixes with the oil. li.

Origin Easily Traced. It is not all smooth sailing for the driver of a "gasoline wagon," according to physicians, who report that many motorists art1 returning from long trips with a decidedly noticeable limp. It is the new foot disease. Put don't be alarmed; it is not at all seri ous. The disease is always acquired in the accelerator foot, the appendage that shoves the car over the road at a fast clip. Continued pressure of the foot on the accelerator button causes a displacement of the metatarsal bones, declare physicians who have diagnosed eases that have been brought to their attention. Its effects are not serious. Itest is the only cure. One Day Turns Trick. More than one motorist returns home limping in one day, doctors aver. Long trips cause strains on the car and the driver. The strain on the accelerator foot sets np a nervous irritation that results in pain, and as a result the driver abandons his oar with a limp every time be walks. The disease is commonly known :i the "motor foot." but is technically called the "metatarsal displacement. The limp usually develops in the right fHt. for few drivers are "left-footed." The disease usually follows a long overland trip, through which the driver has remained steadily at hi post, and never has thought to give the pedal extremity a rest. Swell Doctors' Coffers. The colters of the chiropodists and orthopedic surgeons have taken n a silver lining since the arrival of tlte new hof affliction. Many motor vaca tionists return to receive treatments. Massages and rest are said to cure the pains as rapidly as other treatments. Motorists accustomed to long drives scoff at the Idea of the disease. If there is any snob ailment, they declare, It easily can -e thwarted by shifting feet. Some doctors call the ailment "'acuto foot strain." The origin of the disease is easily accounted for. they say. He-j leasing the tension of the accelerator sprinsr. followed by more nnvlerate driving, will diminish the provalenoy of the ailment, physicians say. WATER IN COOLING SYSTEM Important That It Be Changed Every Week or Two to Prevent Rust Accumulation. Few drivers realize how important it is to change the water in the cooling system every week or two. The rust accumulates and should be drawn olT while It is in a finely divided form. If it Is allowed to accumulate too long it collects in masses and gradually fills up the water jackets. In time the cooling water cannot reach the bottoms of the jackets and the encine overheats very readily. AVOID TROUBLE IN STEERING Knuckle Pivot Pins Should Be Greased at All Times to Prevent Becoming Rusty. Lack of lubrication is the chief cause of hard steering. The steering knuckle pivot pins should be greased at all times. They have large surfaces, which cause a heavy draft, if dry and rusty. 0MSXBUSS2imWS Guticura Soap Imparts The Velvet Touch Soap 25c.
