Vienna, Dec. 5l There is a growing fear that the wave of recent plundering, which recently swept Berlin and Is now ravaging Vienna, is a prelude to grave disturbances in central Europe ttis winter. The extent of the vandalism, looting and plundering after a general survey is said to far exceed the first reports,, Ring. Mariahilfew and other streets in the center of the city radiating from them look as if a hurricane had passed. Tens of thousands of persons streamed into the city to view the wreckage. In the adjoining Old and New Bristol hotels the mob penetrated to the fourth floors, wrecking every thing, slashing valuable breaking open doors and thn Lobeuns, j v. ing out I ithes of j furniture, stealing the clo priests and breaking mirror. A similar fate was meted out t the Grar.d hotel, the total damasres to the ral led hotels beinr estimated at close to one billion crowns.

Below is an illustration that shows a homemade and very effective hot-motor alarm. Any car owner with a little mechanical ability can easily build one. The sketch shows a section of the radiator at the top of the water chamber. The main tube of the thermostat device is made of bakelite or one of the Impregnated bakelite fibers that is water and steam proof. The top of this tube is threaded into a bracket which is in -turn soldered Into the neck of the radiator. The lower end of the tube is also threaded into the mercury chamber which is made of fiber. This chamber is locked and made leak-proof with a nut. At the upper end of the tube is the contact which is provided with an extension contact of brass and which is also led out through a brass ribbon and soldered to the supporting brack et, thus making a ground connection on the car. After tho device is assembled the copper tube is soldered In place and a wire led our through It to a small lanm on the dah. J he circuit is CONTACT HOOD - MC7CURV ra or raC"Ato -ruets When the Engine Becomes Overheated, the Driver Is Warned by the Flash of the Dashboard Lamp. made through the battery circuit on the car as shown. The mercury chamber is threaded onto the thermostat tube so that the device can be adjusted. This is accomplished by submerging It in boiling water and then setting it just a trifle short of making the circuit. In other words, when the water in the radiator reaches the boiling temperature, the motor is dangerously overheated and needs attention. At that point the mercury is so expanded that it rises in the tube and complete the circuit, thus lighting the lamp. Popular Science Monthly.

FUEL CONSUMED WHILE IDLE Rapid Acceleration Is an Expensive Luxury, Using More Gas Than Gradual Speed Increases Other Little Economies. Honest efforts to operate an automobile economically often fail because the driver does not, in many cases, understand the fundamental practices most important to good results. Although fuel is by no means the largest item of operating expense, gasoline savings are customarily given the place of greatest consideration and consequently deserve, first mention. The most flagrant source of gasoline waste lies" in idling the motor. Many drivers believe gasoline consumption to be slight while idling and that by avoiding ue of the starter, they are saving the storage battery. To be correct, ihe buttery is much better ofT when used normally, not being allowed to remain fully charged and practically inactive for long periods of time. On the other hand, fuel consumption while idling is surprisingly groat because the vacuum in the manifold so low that a very rich mixture required in order that the heavy fuel now in u-e may reach the cylinders. Harm Done by Idling. When idling, excessive amounts of gasoline collect in the manifold and valve iorts- excessive carbon is formed the motor overheats and the raw gasoline dilutes the crankcaso oil. Lubrication at this slow speed is inefficient because the splash from the connecting rods is minimized. Rapid acceleration, although desirable in traffic, is n expensive lux- urv. using much more srasolme than using much more gradual -peed increase. Unnecessary and violent application of the speeds and brakes will wear th bands prematurely, strain every pan of the car and speed tires loward ihe junk pile, tin long of open road the driver will obtain better results by using the hand throttle instead of the foot accelerator, if one is installed in the car. This is true because the uneven gas feed caused by the foot fluttering up and divn n the fixt throttle is eliminated, the hand throlile providing a steady flow of fuel to the engine. Many drivers la'r under the impression that it i- economical to leave the spark advanced to the limit and run in high speed as long as the motor will hang on. but the spark should always be retarded as soon as the motor begins to labor. A continually retarded spark is equally harmful. The spark setting should always be adapted t ihe conditions under which ihe engine i operating. Some Sample Matters. Kven simple matters, such as steering are important: the proper method of turning corners and minimizing switching back and forth when parking are important tiro, transmission, rear axle and gasoline savers. The car will run most efficiently within a certain easily determined range of speeds. All of these things enter into this question of economical driving, exerting appreciable influences upon operating expenses. They are the fundamentals of skillful driving which the oar owner will do well to study, because they result in smoother operation, sensible motor maintenance ;md true operating economv. car with a rope to shouts of "lamp cf ios in tRe riK-ess of price defla-rKst." bv.t l.e was rescued by the po- Hon. and is prepared to In.
