When Gasoline Buns Low.
In Farm and Flresldo Is an ingen
ious suggestion for autoist? whose
gasoline has run so. low that they
have trouble in hilt'climbing:
"One sometimes io eau slit out with
a low'supply of gasoline through'hav
ing <tx> make long' dolours to avoid
bad roads or from.other causes. The
supply can be made' to stretch over
thia emergency nv adding denatured
alcohol or kerosene. Occasionally
there ts sufllcient.'gasoline for tho
ordinary iBvel road .but not encagh
for an unexpected ri ill.
/'In thia case the principle pf
pressure feed can ;be. applied. Screw
tho' cap down tight ba the gasoline
tank and then sharpen a '.match/'to
?tho ventilating ho!e>vi?/the Blow.
I Into this bolo as hard as possible and
immediately plug /wjth ' a sharpened
