Fakirs of India
Thi' best known example, perha'
are jugglers and fakirs of India, w
perform feats which die scientists
the world have never been able
fathom or explain. Scientists becoi
intensely practical, and base ail tin
deductions on natural causes and w
established principles. Occasional
nowevef, (hey are compelled to adi.
that that there are happenings '
which no known rules, of philosop
will ;.o ount.
From snak'- charming to sleight

for which (hero is no known explat
lion, ( lie fakirs of India lead the win
blvcry man who has traveled knows
the av.ord (rick, performed daily
lSombay. and in many other cities
India. A fakir produces a basket,
boy, e.nd a sword. lie puts the b
in the 'basket, thrusts the sword tl
the basket, and with draws it drippi
with blood, lie tiicn opens ihe b.b
et and produces tite boy unhurt. Ai
tlier favoiile trick is to spread a Ida
cloth about tli.ee feel square upon 1

MICHELIN TIRE HINTS
Destruction A Few
The Kauai (larage people, who an
great boosters locally for Alii helm
Tires, say that: The wheels of a car
should always run exactly parallel.
Anything which prevents (his will
const) tire trouble. Too much pliy ir
the axle end hearings, too great free
doni in the steei iug joints or possibly
a bent spindle or axle end invariably
exacts the penalty. Iirakes too. win n
they are out of order, damage t res.
For example, if only one of the hack
wheels locks when applying Ihe
brakes, the tire on the slipping wheel
will surely be injured.
Another kind of tin
from weakened spring
the car jolts badly tin
the tire rubs against
ilvt ry Clue
i upper "p. .i t of
and as a result the casing is damaged.
Then again, oil or grease, from leaky
or overfilled tanks, should not be per
mitted to reach the tires, because oil
and other fatty subst.inces are most
' injurioiu to rubber.
