Edison's now famous questionnaire caused a real sensation in practically every part of the country. It caused others to send out questionnaires, some of them serious, others in a lighter vein. George II. Kub-lin, chief engineer of a big motor ear company, has prepared a list of questions for motorists In which he asks a number of questions that every automobile owner should be able to answer. "If you are an auto mobile owner and f-annot answer the questions listed below, it will pay you to. get the Information ns, in nil proba bility, knowing the answers will save you a great deal of time and money," says Mr. Kublin. Number of points of lubrication on your car? Give at least three reasons for overheating of engine? Gas mid oil consumption per mile?

One form of auxiliary windshield which will protect the occupants of :m automobile from rain and wind is made as shown in the illustration. This shield consists of a slieet of celluloid in a brass frame screwed Jointly to the edge of the body adjacent" to the windshield and to the windshield frame. One of those shields Is used at the xide of the ear and the side curtains rV "to "ASTtl TO Riding in an Automobile Is Made Much More Pleasant by an Auxiliary Shield Against Rain or Snow. are altered by extending the edges so as to fasten to the brass frames. With these u clearer vision is afforded the driver when the side curtains are in place. The transparent celluloid will not break and shatter as would glass, and when dulled it is renewable by separating the screwed brass strips. These shields nre about 12 Inches wide and made to correspond In height with the windshield. The polished brass enhances the appearance of the car, apart from serving as a frame for the celluloid. The freedom from the usual dust and dirt obviates the use of glass or goggles. Popular Science Monthly. Results of Slow Sparks. Too late an ienitlon spark will cause loss of power and fuel.

Soap should never be used on the body except for removing grease or oil spots. A small piece of soft cloth, well covered with castile soap suds serves very well to remove grease from the panels. The hood should never be washed while it is hot. as this will result in discoloration.
