Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 19, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT em THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, MAY 10, 191*7 With the Motorists of Sputft Alberta CARE OF CASINGS BY MOTORISTS WILL DOUBLE MIR MILEAGE One of the most important things for the motorist to know is the proper rare of tiro casings. Proper care of the rasing will practically double the mileage. "First anil foremost in the motor-' ist's book of commandments is drive > carefully. Avoid sharp crossing car tracks, go enters and other destructive elements get iu which materially shorten tho life of the tire. Eventually the cut results in n blow-out. "Be careful to see that your brakes are properly adjusted. Thousands of tires are literally torn to pieces by stones, in I improper brake adjustments, slowly, and j "In applying the brakes do It slowly. never under any circumstances drive ! A quick stop grinds the easing. Pick in the tracks. Street car rails were ' up speed gradually, for a quick pick-made for street cars-not for auto-i up often tears the tires. In turning mobiles. If a small cut appears in your casing, have it repaired at once. This will add greatly to the mileage, and injury to the casing is minimized if a repair is made promptly. "When a cut is left unclosed, dirt forces its w?y into the fabric, water the corners go slowly. Past turning around corners does more damage to side walls of your tires than you can imagine. "Keep the wheels always in alignment.

Not merely "claimed" horse-Dower - but actual, usable road horse-power. In the Studebaker FOUR at 51375 the owner is sure of full forty horse-power, and in the SIX at S1685 full fifty horse-power-reserve power for all the exigencies of crowded traffic, steep hilis and rough, heavy roads. In ratio of power to weight the Studebaker is probably the most powerful car on the market. Because of the perfect balance of the chassis it is a common occurrence for owners to get from 8,000 to 10,000 miles from a single set of tires. Come in and see the new Series 18 Studebaker cars. Examine them carefully--ride in them- drive them. Let us convince you that to equal the Studebaker in power-or any other essential of good motor car construction-you have to pay hundreds of dollars more. ^ "Made-in-Canada" 40 H.-P. FOUR ... . . .

It is like holding your cosing against a swiftly revolving omery wheel. "Another important point is tho maintaining of uniform Inflation. A tiro manufacturer knows exactly to what pressure each casing should be inflated. This pressure Is Indicated. Follow his instructions. Don't guess -an air gauge is cheaper than a new casing. "Ann last, but by no means least, use common sense in driving." WARNING TO AUTOISTS Mr. Justice Lennox, at the London. Ont., asstees, in giving his decision In the suit of Mr. and Mrs. David Brooks against Russet Lee, of that city for ?2,300 damages for injuries received when struck by the defendant's automobile, uttered a warning to motorists. "I am of the opinion." he said, "that the real effort of the driver and the defendant was not to stop the motor, but by n noisy demonstration, of which the plaintiffs were unaware, to compel tho plaintiffs to get out of the way. There are a lot of people who wholly fall to realize that pedestrians are not compelled to scurry out of the way nt the peril of being run down. I can find no excuse for not stopping the car before reaching the crossing. I have no doubt about the negligence of the driver." The case was one heard at the fall assize court. Mr. and Mrs. Brooks complained that while awaiting a street car at a corner early in the spring they were run down by the defendant and suffered severe injuries. They asked $5,000 damages. 1 A VALUABLE AID Every Available Machine Being Used in Europe and 25,000 More Needed BILL PROVIDE* ,FOR. FORTNIGHTLY PAY Victoria. B.'

RECRUITING IN AUSTRALIA ?PeTth, Western Australia, Mny 17.- Tho recruiting committee, of the Btntoi asked the promlor of Western Australia, to stimulate recruiting by removing from tiio civil aurvioe nil bill-glo men, fit for military service. The premier replied, sympathizing with; the proposal, but expressing tho opinion that the Commonwealth should' take initial action, and promised to communicate, with the federal government': to 'that'.'of fact. AMERICAN HOSPITAL UNITS HAVE ARRIVED London. May IS.-Tho first of six hospital units which the American lied Cross Is sending to Franco arrived yesterday in Knglnnd. it comprised about !I00 persons. Including L'o Army Medical officers, �0 nurses and more than 300 other attaches. The Studebaker Garage 322 8ixth Street, Opposite Herald. J. T. Graham, Prop. Lethbridge, Albert* LAW IS INVOKED AGAINST *EADS OF THIS STRIKE London, May IS.-Actions have been taken against shop stewards who are conducting the engineers' strike in defiance of their union, the Amalgamated Society of Engineers. At Sheffield the chairman and another member of the strike committee were arrested under the Defence of the Realm Act. In most centres the men have been returning to work daily. In other places the men still out are refusing to return unless a government bill designed to get younger men into the army is withdrawn. Ons of the most important and ef-ficent units of army equipment is tho motorcycle. While it Is not generally known to what great extent these machines figure in dispntch and scouting service in the European armies, an idea may be gathered of their importance when it is stated that there are In use at the various fronts a good many thousand motorcycles-all tho machines available in Europe, In fact. Despite this, every country at war is clamoring for as many additional thousands as they can get. Requisitions for 25,000 have been made by the warring European nation's, while the combined output of the European manufacturers will amount to only 7.000 machines. Thousands also have been exported from the United States, one manufacturer alone having shipped this year in the neighborhood of 8,000 machines and hundreds of side cars. _ uj> The widespread use of the motorcycle as a mean's'of tiuiek locomotion to and from any point Is duo to the power, swift getaway, dependability and flexibility of the present-day machines. They have an instantaneous pickup from standstill to terrific speed. They need no beaten path or road, but will go up a steep hill over rough fields and through narrow open, ings not accessible to the automobile. They also are an invaluable adjunct to the aero squadrons of the armies, being utilized for following up airplanes in action, carrying supplies, and in many other ways rendering swift, reliable co-operation. From Sunny California to Sunny Southern Alberta by Motor Car is Fine Trip-Boost Alberta Roads With a big boost for Alberta roads, J. H. Gould arrived in the elty the other day by motor from Eureka, California, completing the longest trip of his career. When he hit Lethbridge it looked so good to him that he decided to stay. He made the trip in easy stages. He came up via Portland, through The Dalles to Yakima, thence to Ellensburg, over Wintage Prairie on the Columbia river' to Euphrata, to Odessa, to Davenport and on to Spokane, finding fine roads all the way. Good roads were also in order to Klngsgate on the. boundary on to Yak. At Moyie there is a bad stretch of road owing to rock slides. From Fernie the roads were good all the way to Crow's Nest and a quarter of a mile thiB side. From there for about four miles through the Pass the roads were piled ten feet high with snow in places and Mr. Gould had to drive four miles along the C.P.R. track. From there on to Leth- bridge the roads, he declared, were among the finest he had ever travelled on in his life, and that^ls saying something .for anybody used to California turnpikes. Mr. Gould's was the firstcar, to make the trip through the Pass this spring. He says, however, that when bridges now being built at Crow's Nest are completed, much of the bad road will be eliminated. Mr.- Gould made the trip in a Dodge car and is loud in Its praises. It was equipped with U.S. Nobby Tread tires. As for Alberta's dirt roads, especially the trunk road between here and Crow's Nest, which is part of the Canada Highway, he says they were a great surprise to him. Tires, he declared, will last twice as long on these roads as they will on tho gravel turnpikes of California, the home of good roads. He says that for a young country Alberta can show Montana a lot about building dirt roads. He was surprised to hear that cars could run all winter in Southern Alberta. "All same California." he laughed. Mr. Gould is a portrait, painter, and says he finds his business in Lethbridge wonderfully prosperous. It is Easy and Natural For all manufacturers .to claim the superiority of their product, but the claims that count are those upheld by actual accomplishments and verified by official records and in this way is established the supremacy of the Good Old Excelsior. The New Excelsior Kushion Sprocket Is unquestionably the greatest improvement ever made in motorcycle power transmission.--The Excelsior frame was the first and remains the only American motorcycle frame built of seamless steel tubing- and nicklc steel drop forgings throughout. MORT PRIEST, Agent 511 Sixth Street South ' MEN NEEDED FOR THE CAVALRY One of the finest cavalry units In the Dominion of Canada is the 34th Fort Garry Horse, with headquarters at Winnipeg, from which regiment large numbers of men have been sent overseas, many of whom are now doing grand work as cavalry in the present advance that is taking place in France. A call has come for a large number of Cavalrymen to be supplied by the Fort Garry Horse and this will give those who desiro to join and ride a chance to go overseas at an early date, if they wish. It is not necessary for the recruit to, be, able to ride, as on Joining the Service squadron, 34th Fort Garry Horse, a well trained horse is allotted to him and ho Is taught riding by some of the best experts in Western Canada; and it is a well known fact that the'men of this squadron have such a neat and dressy appearance as to command the attention of the citizens of Winnipeg and other places where they are seen. Should any of the men In this district desire to become identified with this squadron the officer commanding, Major F. W. Stoneham, whoso headquarters are Service Squadron, 34th Fort Garry Horse, Tuxedo Park, Winnipeg, will be glad to hear from them by letter or wire, and transportation will bo furnished to recruits from point of enlistment' to the City of Winnipeg.

The high narrow radiator is distinctive. The car has class. It is handsomely finished. The equipment is the best. Every comfort, every motor luxury is there. But above all the Chalmers is sound. It is a sensible car, strongly built. It has amazing reserves of power. 1 This was proven in Chicago. An amateur driver drove a stock Chalmers car for 24 hours on high gear through the congested Chicago traffic. A total of 586.8 miles was piled up, beating all previous traffic tests by 228 miles. \- The run Was made under American Automobile Association supervision on 14 miles to the gallon of gasoline. * The Chalmers made a record run from Chicago to New York. 1047 miles in 31 hours flat. The .best previous time was 35 hours 43 minutes in a big twin six. Bear this in mind when you step into this smart car. Tho Chalmers is a sound, powerful cai-and it is sensibly priced.
