Handsome New Garage Opened in Old Bijou Theatre Building It isn't very often thai a moving picture theatre duds itself turned into an automobile garage. It's a far cry from the one to the other, but it has happened In the case of the Kijou theatre on which the contractors are now busily working, and when they are finished tho result will be Bijou Motor Parlors. Karly in tho spring Earl M. Muyck came to the clly with the agency for the lllgin Six motor. Ho secured a tomporary location but it was not long before ho saw that the automobile business was growing bigger and bigger and that there was more need for accommodation than has yet been provided. Seeing the Bijou theatre standing idle he determined to secure it, and with 11. D. Shantz, who is sev- KEROSENE NOT YET GOOD AUTO FUEL Kerosene as a fuel for automobiles Is not a new proposition. Not long ago an interesting serial story appeared in a popular weekly, woven around the invention of a kerosene carburetor. As a matter of fact, there have been a number ot practical kerosene carburetors produced, but they don't seem to take hold nor appear to fill a long felt want. When the demand for gasoline was small tho proportion taken from the "-cruttB-wf! wig--nlso-Bnwr}}; As the-tie2' mand increased, new methods of production have increased tho proportion of gasoline at the expense of kerosene, and doubtless still more efficient methods will produce a satisfactory fuel from a still greater proportion of the crude oil. If the demand should shift to kero-ene, the incentive for an improved method of manufacture would be removed, and the kerosene would have to bear a much greater proportion of the income to be derived from the crude oil. Hence the low cost of kerosene is due solely to its'limited use. Furthermore, the proper burning of kerosene is a function,of.the motor rather than of the curburetor. .To atomize kerosene Is no more difficult than to atomize gasoline. The heat Required for vtiporation would necessarily ho greater, ind the ' capacity would therefore be much less. Larger motors would have to be provided for , a given power, because of the higher �temperature at which the mixture enters the cylinders. Unless water is' used with the kerosene, the liability for the collection of carbon on tho piston is much greater. Taken altogether, the uses of kerosene In the automobile would not-be an unmixed blessing, but the development of motors is going on all tho time and it may be possible that some time in the near future kerosene will bo-, come a logical fuel, but that does not soem to be the case at presont. erlng his connection with The Herald where he has been accountant for the past two years, a partnership has been formed that promises to get its shure of the automobile business of the south country. As a garage, the Bijou affords splendid accommodation for thirty cars with plenty of spcuio for a repair department. But with the beautiful decorations of the interior. It rightly deserves tho name "motor parlor." And the new concern is going to provide one thing which Lethbririge has loug been lacking and for which the ladles of the surrounding district have Ions been wishing-a rest room. There was connected with the theatre a ladies' boudoir, with toilet accommodations. This is being left by .Mosrs. Jluyck & Shantz for the accommodation of the ladles of tho district. The room has an opening off 6th St. south, and also an opening from the garage. It is secluded and promises to become the meeting place of the ladles who come to the city to shop. That, at least, is what the new concern wishes it to be, and they urge the ladies to make use of the accommodation at every possible opportunity. In the balcony the accessories department will be placed, and when the interior alterations are completed, which will be some time early next week, Messrs. Uuyck & Shantz will have a garage that will justify the name, the Bijou' Motor Parlors. II TAKES SOME TO !
