WHY RIGHT REAR TIRES WEAR FASTEST Do you know that your right rear tiro faster .than the other threat Hero Is the reason: PoSver and traction ccmes from the' rear wheels. The rear tiros there- fore get the hardest wear. You drive on the right side of the road and the car is slightly weight be- ing on that side; therefore your right rc-ar lire takes hold first and bears more traction than the left rear. When iri 'motion, tha left rear lira rolls along comfortably on the smooth middle-portion 'of the road. Tho-rigbt rear gets' the- rough going ot as- phalt, Ihorodks and ruts, roads aro car nearly and Is more likely lo encounter objects thrown on 1 tbo sldo ci tho road. Then, again, tho rear Ure bears the brunt of the ping, sometimes majority of tho wear falling on the right rear. Tho lire receiving the next hardest usage Is the left rear, then the right front and last tha left front So when your right rear begins to show signs of wear and you wish to spare It, put it on your left front wheel. And like- wise change your left rear to the right front. t'es; tak-i about raWous'b ing note of what hejSaw, In her of instances he made plaster" o liaris casts, ot- mouldings.

Ridicule Heaped on Inventor of the Forerunner of Motor Few people who ride about the coon- try In palatial limousines or tiny runa- bouts aro familiar with tha early his- tory of tho'lnventlon which has (lone so much to revolutionize transporta- tion, and which has played such an im- portant part In the industrial develop- ment of the world today. The interest aroused by the- contest announced by the San Frandsco Ad- vertising Club held during tho recent auto show in Exposition auditorium for the display of antiquated vehicles, and tor which prizes of cupa were given, makes the story of the first automobile) In tho world ot in- terest. Steam-propelled vehicles bad been devised, and used to a very limited extent In England and America as early as 1830. In 1S35 two New Eng- land men proposed electricity as mo- tor power, but tho problem ot suc- cessful road locomotion lagged until the middle of the seventies. ap- peared a genius vrho appreciated the possibilities of the motor vehlcleata his ideas were regarded as visionary. External Chamber Strange as it may seem, and-with n touch of the ludicrous, Ilia first com- bustion engine was ODeraled by a binaUoa ot nitrons oxide (laughing and coal-xrfVmlxcd by an atomiz- ing jet. Very high power was develop- ed in proportion to weight, but, as the explosion took place in an external chamber, and the expanding uaa bad to be introduced into a cylinder prop- er through a valve, the heat of the ex- plosion Invariebly fused this valve aft- er a short time and stopped the engine. The Inventor then realized that to make a gau engine for highway loco- motion the primary explosion must take pUce within the cylinder Itself. This ho worked lai to A point of suc- cessful Mid by certain rude tests determined thst It developed power enough to propel his vehicle. Overheating Problem met the overheating problem by a splash system from supply of watjr In tho crank and solved the problem of lubrication with a mlnersJ .manufactured frtm petrol- eum. This was In The engine alono vas operated this year. The gearr, wheels, clutch, and steering apparatus were matters ot toy-llks models, of blue prints and ipecifications.

But It most ba remem- bered, that Seldon was purely an in- ventor. Ha satisfied that the mechanical difficulties were deinon- "strebly did not bnUd.

How to Avoid Sudden tlon of Headlights on Hiil It is very annoying to motorists have tho lights of Ihe car burn out at Inopportune moments. Aa a cor- respondent avers: seem to be all right for a time until all of a sudden they bright- en far above normal go' ont. KxamlnatJon ot tha bulbs reveals tno fact ttat toe filaments have disappear- ed. The car runs all right and tha storage battery seems to be In fair condition." This trouble Is doubtless caused by a loose wire either bn: the tery or between the generator and the battery. The connection at one of tho terminals probably has faecbmo loose, BO the current from- the generator can- iiot flow Into thi batle.y.v The voltage of tho generator' Im- mediately increases, which for the brilliancy of the lights, until the filament, overheated, burns; 'out Checkover every, wire -connection oa the generator aid the battery. Loose connections occur c-'tciiest at tiie bat- tery. If the electrical generating system has an automatic regulator connected in series with the shunt Held, this regulator is probably not- working properly. If no loose connections are found, tho car had best be taken to an electrical repair man to locale and remedy the trouble....... Wait Until Auto Has Cooled Before Using Water and Soap The heat of the car has a tendency to dry the mud ciuickly, baking It in- to the finish. Hence, It the car can- not be washed at once, it should at least be thoroughly rinsed off. First soak all the mud down with 'a hose, removing the nozzle nnd permitting a large'stream with low pressure to run over the finish. Begin at tho lop and work down; then you will remove the same mud only once. The flrat' rinsing usually loosens lie dirt and the second removes it all. t it does not, a soft sponge constantly atnrated with water should be siop- led against.the surface without rub- ling. Greasy spots found after the lirt is removed should be washed with in old chamois nnd some good, pure oap. But be careful not to leavo any race of tho soap on the car. Now rinse the car thoroughly, then wet a good, clean chamois, wring it Iry. Have a different chamois for ho running gear and use only on that part of the car. Keep the wet car out >f the sun nntli dry or tha finish is lable to crack. Never "dust" a car with a feather duster or any other ;lnd of duster. Washing as outlined ncre Is the best and practically the only war lo keep tho'finish bright. One point frequently overlooked by even the seasoned motorist when washing his car Is Ibal the engine and surrounding parts bo cold. Otherwise the hood and radiator of a car become dull and shabby looking whllo tbe rest ot tlio car still looks neat. Heat dries Ihe soap and polish, Injuring the finish beyond repair with- in a short tlmo if tho practise Is con- tinued.
