Brakes too, when they are out of order do damage to tires. Should only one of the back wheels lock when applying the brakes the tire on the slipping wheel will surely be injured. Another kind of tire trouble arises from weakened springs. Every time the car jolts badly the upper part of the tire rubs against the mudguard and as a result the envelope is damaged. Driving chains also are often the cause of injury to tires. If the chains are slack, the swinging motion PrcJ" duced h§r the car in running, will cause the lower part of the chains to strike the sides of the tires. When the chain line is too close to the tires or when the chain bolts are too long, they rub the envelopes, making oblique scratches on the rubber. Oil or grease from leaky or over filled tanks should uot be permitted to reach the tires, because oil and other fatty substances are most injurious to rubber. DampnoKN Affects Tires. The action of dampness on the rubv ber part of an automobile tire is insignificant, but its effect on the canvas is serious. Experiments were made recently at a laboratory anti when the fabric was left in a moist atmosphere, such as on the floor ol a damp cellar, it was not long before spots and stains made their appearance. Such stains denoted the presence of minute destructive growths or tiny mushroom organisms, the action of which reduced the fabric to mold. The application of this experiment to automobile tires is easily followed. Sometimes an envelope will blow out suddenly, perhaps when the car is being used for the first time in the spring. The cause is weakness resulting from the decay of the canvas in the envelope. In most cases this w'eakness is local, being limited to places where water has been allowed to penetrate. The position of such defective places is easy to locat© by the stains left by moisture. In order to judge of the seriousness of the damage, it must be determined whether the canvas of the tread only has been affected in which case the tire can be retreaded and restored to thoroughly serviceable condition. If the body canvas is affected as well, it becomes necessary to nave the envelope completely rebuilt. Locating Small Punctures. Nearly every motorist has experienced the exasperating task of locating small punctures in inner tubes. If not immediately visible inflate the tube slightly and hold it near the ground. Very often if the road is dry the puncture may be detected by the disturbance of the dust made by the escaping air. If this test does not discover the puncture, present each portion of the tube to your cheek until you can feel the rush of escaping air. These methods failing to locate th« puncture your only course is to immerse the tube in a pan of water, section by section, and watch closely for air bubbles. If no puncture is found in the tube, it would be well to retest the valve. Thig can be done while the tire is mounted on the wheel. Simply turn the wheel until the valve is pointing straight down and immerse the valve in a glass of water. This is accomplished by raising the glass until the valve is submerged, If bubbles rise to the surface of the water, examine the rubber security disk at the bottom of the cap and if this is damaged fit a new one in its place. If you have no regular rubber disk, use instead a small leather washer or one made of cloth smeared with cement. Washing Tires. Washing tires and washing a car are two different propositions. Water alone should be used to wash tires and as little of it as necessary. After every run the envelope should be wiped clean w'ith a damp sponge or well wrung cloth. A common mistake made by motorists is to mix kerosene with the water. This may be advisable when washing the body of a car to remove mud and dust from the varnish, but it should never be done when washing tires because kerosene eats rubber. This fact can be readily proved by immersing a small piece of rubber in kerosene and allowing it to soak. The rubber will soon swell and lose its elasticity. When washing tires it is best to simply dampen a sponge with clean water, care being taken that the sponge is not soaked and dripping. Then wipe the tires dry with a cloth or handful of waste. Pinched Inner Tubes. A few words about avoiding delays and expense resulting from carelessly fitting a tire, if the tube is pinched between the bead of the envelope and the rim, the Invariable result is the later explosion of the tube. Such explosion usually forces the Dead out of the clinch of the rim at the point where the rupture occurs. It is more than likely that two thicknesses of inner tube have become pinched under the toe of the bead, and that this trouble prevents the bead from fitting properly at that point. The inevitable rupture of the tube will naturally occur at the sharp fold in its surface just below the toe of the bead. This rupture will permit the air to escape with explosive force between the outside of the bead and the inner surface of the clinch, and this explosion will drive the bead out of the rim at that point. The trouble was with the careless way in which the tune was fitted. In order to avoid pinching of the inner tube between the rim and the bead. £he tube should be powdered w'ell with ’talc before, placing it inside the envelope, and it should be pushed aside the envelope carefully, after mounting the first bead, but before fitting the second bead. After the second bead is fitted turn wheel slowly. If any projection or un- eveness of the envelope is noted, take hold of the envelope with the left hand, the palm near the bead, pushing the outer side of the envelope towards the car. Then with the thin edge of a spur lever lift the outer bead and push it slightly toward the center of the rim. If any of the inner tube is visible, it is not in proper position. ♦ » * Road racing, according to W. G. Wall, chief engineer of a b*g motor company, is the most severe tent possible to impose on a car. Unlike speedway racing, the road being rough, every part of the car is subjected to excessive vibration. If the materials are not correct. crystalization of some metal part of the car is inevit*t)le. Going at high speed over the rough road surface, soon shows any lack of balance DON’T Neglect Your Opportunities. Newbro’s Herpicide is the one remedy on your druggist’s shelves which may always be depended upon. Instead of complaining to your friends and mourning over your loss of hair, call upon your local druggist and purchase a bottle of Newbro’s Her­ picide. It is the first and original remedy, guaranteed to kill dandruff, stop itching and check falling hair. You can save the hair you have much easier than you can «row new.

Granting the strenuosity of long road races, they are after years of service condensed into tabloid form, he declares. Stress is applied that would never be occasioned by any circumstance in every day use. Few private owners care to drive or be driven at 40 miles an hour, yet even at this comparative high speed a car will stand more than again as much abuse as the same car driven at 60 miles an hour. Sustained high speed will develop flaws. ■* * * The number of motor car concerns has grown so rapidly that there are now about 325 in the country. Of this number there are probably not more than 25 concerns that have made enough profit worth mentioning, it is said. Two or three individuals of unerring judgment and sagacious business dealings have made fortunes. As one manufacturer says, many of these concerns are doomed to financial failure. A motor buyer will always do well to buy a standard car, one that is wel known. The motor buyer should not purchase a car of unknown quality from new and untried concerns. The automobile industry has passed through its stages of infantile diseases, and buyers from now on will look askance at every one but the leading makers. * • * Worm, or screw gearing, is among the oldest mechanical movements and, until recent years, has been employed to obtain either a great mechanical advantage or a considerable reduction in speed between related machine parts. Eater developments, however, saw its introduction as a driving gear for higher speed mechanisms and while its reputation as an effective but inefficient mechanism remained, its users began to see greater possibilities for its use than they had at first expected. Worm drive for automobile purposes, however, is a new development, but many of the American firms are about to announce worm driven models in the near future, and certain of the truck manufacturers are already decided converts to its use. In place of the old single, double, tripe, or even quadruple, thread worms W'hich the pratice of the past has rendered familiar, we find worms of peculiar tooth formation with seven, eight, to as high a» 15 threads, or teeth, cut on them, with very high spiral angles and perfectly reversible. It is in the multiplication of the number of threads, or rather in the spiral angle employed, that the fundamental difference between the worm gearing of our grandfathers and the modern high efficiency type of the present day is concerted.

FRIGHTFUL SUFFERING OF A WOMAN Mrs. Garrett, of Vandervoort, Describes How She Suffered and How She G-ot Relief. Vandervoort, Ark.—Mrs. Dora Garrett, of this place, says: “I suffered every month, for a year, and sot weaker every day. My head and back would ache so bad, I could not sit up. I tried all kinds of medicines, and they all failed to cure me. Then my mother told me to take Cardul. When I had taken one bottle, I was able to do all of my own work. I can recommend Cardui to be the greatest woman’s Remedy in the world. I have used it and know' what it wrill do.” When a woman is ill, the real trouble is generally some derangement of her constitution, and the headache, and backache, etc., are merely symptoms of her womanly weakness. The proper treatment, therefore, is Cardui, the woman's tonic. No other medicine, or tonic, has exactly the same results as Cardui. No other has the record of so many years of successful use in cases of womanly ailments. If Mrs. Gorrett had taken Cardui sooner, she might have been spared the long sickness and much suffering. A few doses of Cardui at the right time will often save serious suffering and pnevent a long sickness. Don’t delay. Begin to take Cardui at once. N.
