Before deciding on your next tire, have your
dealer show you cross-sections of the various
makes you areconsidering so that you can
measure the total thickness of the rubber and
fabric used in building up the various makes.
You will find that Michelin Tires embody more
of these mileage-giving materials. In the 34x4
Michelin Universal, for example, there is a
solid though flexible mass of wear-resisting
rubber and fabric almost an inch thick.
And every bit of the materials used is of the highest
quality. Yet Michelins are moderate in price.

It Is only - a short time, " compara
tively speaking, since electricity had
but a small place anywhere except in
the laboratory. Many engineers
looked at motors and electrical e-
quipment with a doubtful grin and
shook their heads. '. Those days,
however, have passed. Views To
day in connection with electrical
equipment are entirely different
Today, every one from the owners
of factories to the individual who can
only afford to rent the cheapest kind
of quarters feels that he must have
access to electric current, Maka
well Plantation, : always In the fore
ground in adopting the more modern
conveniences, has constructed a pow
er plant to supply electricity to the
entire plantation. There Is no doubt
that every employee Of this planta
tion is interested in this new plant;
being installed some eight miles from
the mill up on the' Olokele ; Ditch,
and would therefore .like to know
some of the details about It. .
The entire equipment was furnish
ed by Catton, Neill & Co. ot Honolulu,
and installed by the plantation.
Briefly it consists of a 'pen stock, an
impulse type Pelton water wheel and
governor, a 500 K W generator and
exciter, a switch board, two 333 K V
A step up transformers and transmis
sion line. The pen stock through
which water Is supplied to the wheel
is 54 inches In diameter at the forbay
end 36 Inches at the power house; it
is over 700 feet In length and gives
an effective head of 210 feet. Pro
vision has been made for future ad
The present machine is to be sup
plied by two nozzles which , have a
diameter of 5 and 7 Inches re
spectively. The water wheel Is ap
proximately 90 inches in diameter
and has 17 buckets on its periphery
which are 21 inches wide, 'against
which two streams from the nozzles
are' directed. - - "
The governor -is .of the centrifugal
type which actuates a. , pilot -valve
through suitable mechanism so de
signed as to admit oil under pressure
to .Operate a hydraulic piston which
in turn operates deflectors, in such &
manner as to maintain a .constant
speed on the wheel regardless of the,
demand of the load. The governing
mechanism is a beautiful piece of
work and is the last word In its line. .
The electrical equipment was built
by the ' General " Electrlo Company.
The! generator is 500 K W, 40 Pole, 60
Cycles, 180 R P M, 2300 volt revolving
field type alternator with a belted ex
citer; The switch board is equipped
