London, Dec. 10. Both houses of the British parliament ratified the treaty creatine the Irish Free State by overwhelming majorities. After final arguments in favor of ratification, presented in the house of commons by Austen Chamberlain, the government leader, and in the house of lords by Lord Chancellor Birkenhead, both houses voted emphatic rejection of the unionist amendments to the king's address from the throne. If these amendments had been adopted, it would have had the effect of killing the treaty. The amendment to the king's speech, proposed in the house of commons by Col. John Gretton, conservative, expressing regret that the treaty "would involve the surrender of rights of the crown in Ireland and give power to establish an independent Irish army and navy." received the support of only ,"S members of 40 voting. A simil&r amendment, moved in the house of lords by the duke of Northumberland, mustered only 47 "diehard" votes of 213 voting. The rejection of these amendments by both houses of parliament, therefore, had the effect of adoption of the king's address without a division. Dublin. Dec. 10. The stubborn fight of Eamon De Valera and a group of colleagues in Dall Kireann against the Irish treaty in its present form has delayed the deliberations. De Valera is understood to have proposed to Lail Kireann that the treaty be amended to exclude certain features. lie has been holding out for an all-Ireland parliament, which would give the Sinn Fein complete domination of all Ireland, but he 'ins expressed willingness to give Ulster province wider powers in local affairs. De Valera i understood to have suffered a reverse in a test vote, but is making a strong light. The advisability of putting the-treaty up to the Irish people in n referendum was discussed at lenirth, it is learned. In spite of frequent clashes among Dail leaders over the treaty and the wide split between De Valera and the Griffith and Collins followers all join i: hotly denouncing the British inspired attacks on le Valera.

KEROSENE IS GOOD CLEANSER When Freezing Weather Arrives Test Oil to See If It Is Adapted to New Conditions Do Not Permit Water to Accumulate. Do not neglect to overhaul your lunrieannsr system until winter is Tar advanced. It is a job which the ordinary man avoids boeausc it gets his hands dirty. But serious trouble may follow if the work is not done in time write Albert N. Atkinson in the New York World. Winter, with its low temperature, brings unusual conditions, nnd the various lubricants used on a car must" be adapted to the change. Doubtless the oil in the crank case has been changed every 1.00O to l.rwX) miles during the summer, a rule which should be followed all winter. But frequently the motorist neglects to clean out the crank case when changing oils and so the dirt and grit remain in the bottom of the sump to contaminate the new oil. Use Kerosene Method. Projiorly the oil base should be removed and tli' strainer, pump and piples thoroughly cleaned. A new gasket must then be fitted around the joints. This is more of a job than the average man wishes to undertake, so the kerosene method may ho considered fairly satisfactory. Before putting in the new oil let u" consider whether it is adapted to the new season or not. The working temperature will be the same, but the oil sump is exposed to every blast of cold air coming through the radiator and the oil may be chilled to a point where it cannot flow. As soon as freezing weather arrives make a cold test, of the oil as follows: place half a tumbler of the oil in some exposed place where it may he acted on by the outside temperature. Watch it from day to day. If it thickens up and refuses to run at any time it is not suited to your enarine. Use a slightly thinner oil or one which will not be too sluggish at the low temperatures usually met at your latitude. If inconvenient or impossible to change the oil immediately, keep the car in a warm place and do not take it out until the engine has run ten minutes or so and warmed up the oil. The hot oil flowing back into the stump soon brings it to a temperature where the cold will have no bad effect upon It. If obliged to let the car stand any length of time with engine not running, you will of course blanket the radiator which not only pro tects the cooling system hut the oil as Well. Danger Often Overlooked. There is one danger which Is fre-Qaently overlooked and that is an accumulation of water at the bottom of the sump or oil well. This comes from the products of .combustion leaking past the piston and also from occasional leakage of the cooling system. If the sump is -Tposed to freezing temperature this water will freeze. If there Is enough of It, some may freeze In the oil pump, wrecking it. So draw oTr a "'? " rrom tne no"om or ",e rump tii irai mux cttiv, v ci i nunj draining out all water. If found. Change the grease in the gear-case and differential case to a heavy oil. A semi-fluid grease tr gear compound will thicken up In winter and will not penetrate where. It should. So pay careful attention to these details, as lubrication of the car Is a matter which simply MUST be right. v PARKER'S HAIR BALSAM )il?"r''t BemoTPKOanarna-StopsBalrFaUIsc NST V Restores Color and "L Boaoty to Gray and Faded Haa VPJ-"5; toe. and $100 at nrorststa, jgfcyV2i Blwii Chem.

Z. j Suction Device Illustrated Does Work Easily. Not Necessary to Remove Tank or Disconnect Heating and Feed Connections Any Wateror Particles Drawn Out. In some .ix-cj Under automobiles no provision is made for draining the carburetor, or vacuum tank, without removing them or disconnecting the beating and feed connections and allowing the fuel in the vacuum tank to run off through the disconnected feed pipe. All this makes a lot of work and trouble merely to remove the few drops of water or particles of dirt that interfere with the operation of the carburetor. The little device shown in the drawing will quickly draw all the fuel from When Draining the Contents of the Carburetor Float Chamber and Vacuum-Feed Tank of an Automobile, the Suction Device Illustrated Makes It Unnecessary to Disconnect the Float Chamber. the carburetor and vacuum tank without removing anything but the cover of the lloat chamber. Two pieces of metal tubing are inserted through a tight-fitting cork, fitted into a quart bottle. One tube leads to a common type of small bicycle pump, in which the leather washer on tli? plunger has been reversed to produce suction instead of pressure. A RB-shot is dropped Into the short rubber connection between the pump and bottle, to serve as a check valve. By removing the screws holding the cover of the float chamber it can be lifted off, then the second rubber tube is Inserted so that its end will reach the lowest part of the float chamber. Upon operating the pump, the contents of the carburetor and vacuum tank are sucked into the bottle without spilling a drop, and any water or particles of dirt that may be present will be brought aloug.
