Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta Hit; DA1LT HEKALLJ SATURMY, SEPTEMBER 18, 192Q 19 Exhaust Echoes Garage Gossip NEWS OF THE AUTO WORLD W TYPFPTC LLI IjOAI LArLitlo Right Front Tire Also Gives Out Quicker; Both Cam- More Weight Tho fact that tjres on the riyht-hanu I tide of a car wear oat faster In pro-' -Tportion tian those on the loft-lmid nlar supposition, that this wear is side often jmzzlea motorists. The pop- caused by turning many corners to the right is incorrect. The fact is that the Increased wear is actually caused the pitch of tho road, which throws more of the car on the right side than on the left The round of the road from curb to curb is far more important ia de- termining the sequence in which tires normally wear rear, left rear, right front, left is gutter wear and abrasions from grind- ing off and on pavements. The elope of the road causes the right rear tire to carry more weight than the left rear tire. Thus the right rear wears the faster of the two. The right front also, according to Mil- ler tiro and tube eipcrts. will wear more rapidly than the left front, from the same reason. However, as the left rear wheel re- celves a driving pull while the right front doss not, it will wear the faster of tlio two. Under average conditions tho right rear tira wears out first and tho left front last. To secure uniform wear from a sat of tires, change them around, about ouce a mouth. Particularly IE it Im- portant to reverse the rear tires. Aft- er the rear tites are worn re- verse them with the front.

A cer- tain group ot owners will install cheap pings which, to say the. least, are ei- pensive. Plugs as now made should not give trouble sii months if the operation conditions are right. The greatest source of plug failure may be traced to leakage iu too plug Itself. This refers to hot gas leakage brought about by non-gas-tightness of Joints In.the plug. The loss In power due to reduction in compression pressure is hardly'worth considering as compar- ed with damage done by the heat of the Bases. The excessive boat causes Insulators to crack and be- cause oi carbon contained In the gas there Is a black soot deposited which also interferes, with plug operation. "Where the plugs located as to receive no benefit from Jacket water the conditions are still worse, because such plugs run normally GAS IS MADE FROM STRAW Distillation Brings Forth Explosive Product. which posses- ses eiplosiva qualities sufficient to drive an automobile and which may also be used for of illumina- tion is being produced at the Arling- ton (Va) experimental farm of the de- partment of- agriculture from the de- structive-distillation of ordinary field straw.

H. special force has been detailed to the Arlington Elation to continue the tests irith various straws and to work out a model plant for the distil- lation of the gas. WithtHeMqtqnrte of South Alberta A TWO-MINUTE TIRE REMOVER Plates Become Healed and Ruin is Sure to Follow The one tilng'most likely to bring your battery to an untimolv cad Is thirst. Look Into all cells of your baltery just as you do your radia- tor, and put enough distilled water Into each cell to bring tha level of ths solution a half-inch above the tops of the plates. When you call at the service station, they Trill, of course, add water, if any Is needed at that time. Your battery cannot be filled wlih water and then be expected to travel on tt every drop Is gone. It must be kept filled above the tops of the plates to allow .for the evapora- tion that will take place. Tho simplest and surest means of committing battery mnrder is to run it without giving it iratef. Without water the plates become- hard and are rapidly overheated by the chargin: current- This may buckle tue plates and completely ruin the battery. MUIns the battery too full "is al- most as bad as not filling it full enough. If filled above tho proper point, the acid solution will overflow and eat away the wood case and in- jure any part of the car vrith which it comes in contact If the specific gravity of tho solu- tion becomes less and less, you may bo deceived into bettering that the acid has evaporated. What really happens is this: >As the battery dis- charges, the acid in the solution is absorbed by tie plates. If .this p cess continues until the battery is ful- ly, discharged, the solution is almost all water.'. Recharging the battery forces the add out of the plate into the solution again. Only the water evaporates .and all you need to do is to see that the battery is supplied with distilled water to replace what is lost by evaporation; 'Never add acid to. your battery. Impurities, either chemical sub- stances'or solid matter any kind, will interfere with the proper chemi- cal action between the plates and tho battery solution. It is for this reason that yoo should never use anything but distilled water. -TOOL INEFFECTIVE I had a little autoy It -used to buck and stall, .And fho' I overhauled It It hardly run at all.

WRITE FOR FULL INFORMATIO GARBUTT MOTOR 58 Crty Market Sldj. TODAY SCHOOL, High Cost of Eating Low Cost of Motoring You'll never believe it's true! The motorist gets more.for his dollar than he aid in 1914. Of course, when J. Herman Honk- honk and family roll haughtily up o Ihe entrance of Hotel Palatal and give the waiter writer's cramp' hy their dinner order consisting of everything in and out of season, Herman is not going to get as much for his dollar as he would: have BIX years ago. Take it from the; cold, merciless statistics of tho Depart- merit of Labor that dinner tor the family is going to take' 170 per cent, more from the Honkhonk bank-roll than in 1914. father Honkhonk glares at the size of tlio bill EO deftly flipped on its back by the walter-lianiilt, re- membering the 253 per cent, in- crease in cost of the clothes worn by his family and suddenly-recall- Ing that he paid 231 per cent, more, for the last household furnishings than he did six years ago. As the family is hoarding the car Konkbonk, sen., runs a proud and appraising eye over its pretty lines and fine finish.' 'His cliest swells with a sense of ownership of this speedy, comfortable and sturdy machine, and lio chuckles in reminiscence as he remembers the fragile, uncomfortable "ten- pnl" ho bought a decade ago when automobiles were "horseless car- riages." One paid dearly for mo- toring In thn early days. "Guess I'll buy a now muses the lord and master of tho Honk- honk, clan, as his eye travels to tho worn right rear.

"Wliazzamntter, haven't tires gone 11 "Duly 37 per cent, since re- plies the srirago man, "but at that they're 33 per cent, cheaper than in 1010." As the car rolled smoothly out of the highway Honkhonk turns to his better h.-ilf, who from the scat besi'Jo him is doing most of the dnvins without handling the wheel and, ejaculates: "Doggone, Kmily] motoring is cheaper than eating." The operation of removlna and replacing motorcar tires Is one of the commonest In the world, but it remains a fertile source of irrita- tion, difficulty and delay. The latest Invention for simplifying the process comes from Great Britain and Is on highly original lines. A segment of the outer part of the rim Is hinged so that it may be swung out from the re- mainder, thus allowing the tire to be slipped off; The placing on of a new tire simple, and the Is snapped' back into, series cf studs being-arranged In.a very special way so-as to provide an automatic lock. Even an unskill- ed hand can take off an old tire and put oh a new one withl.n two minutes. The automatic lock Is claimed to be perfectly rigid and safe under the heaviest road shocks.
