As a sharp freeze may seriously damage the auto or (rnctor engine, !t Is lilgh ttrne that evory operator be giving attention to p u t t i n g tn some antifreeze that will prevent such damage. Undiluted kerosene Is being used more for antt-freexc In automobiles ami trucks, and seems to give satisfactory results. Kerosene does not transmit heat so rapidly as water, and (here might he some danger of over, heating -where the cur must stand heavy continuous service. Kerosene Antl.Freeze. A car with kerosene antl-freeze should- be watched carefully it It has to pull for a considerable time tn mud or snow, especially tn low gear, There la some smell, but very l i t t l e ihore than with alcohol. There may he sorao danger from fire !«· the case of bad overheating, Itut little or none from the vapor given off. Kerosene Is hard on the rmllator connections, lut thoy ought to be replaced every I'ther year anyway. Honey hrm been used by a good many motorists as an antl-freeze- w i t h dtilte satisfactory results. A m i x t u r e of half water and half horn;y Is brought to a boil for several m i n u t e s f i n d skimmed before being put I n t o the cooling system. This will stand i temperature of 20 below zero ,before freezing and then makes n slushy Ice which does not seem to do any diim- ego. Only water needs to be added to the honey solution. Alcohol Best. Denatured alcohol Is the most common substance to use as It does not h a v e any destructive action on the ·metal or rubber 'hose, nor will It fon-a *ny deposits of foreign matter to choke up radlntoV passages. It tins tho disadvantage t h a t Its boiling point IV lower than water. A 80 per cent solution of alcohol protects to aero. 40 per cent to 20 below, and 50 per cent to 32 below. Reckless. Drivers Must Pay for Violating Laws An Increase In Insurance premiums Is to be levied ai;nln»t auto owners and operators In New York stare who commit serious violations of truffle laws. The traffic violations for which an operator or owner of an automobile must nhow financial responsibility for future accidents are reckless cfdving, where Injury to person or property results therefrom; speeding, T. here injury to person or property results; driving without an operator's H:enso; driving while Intoxicated, and leaving the scene of un accident wlth- cut stopping. Give Transmission Gear Attention It Requires The transmission get^r demands at- !"ntlon as rhuch un thtf Engine, but It i iroly gets It. Evury BOO niiles or so i ii' engine Is given fresh oil, but the t-'iinsmlsslon remains under the floor, fnr;:ot ton. Fine. mctiU particles, which n r c bound to wenr off from, the transmission and axle, gradually change the uroase Into a grinding compound. M u c h longer l i f e from the bearings and Kenrs may be had If the old oil f i n d jrn-ase am removed, the cfiso · \vnfihori out w i t h kerosene, and new, clean grease put in.
