WITHIN SiX YEARS
Value Jumps From $25,657,
294 in 1912 to $110,138,
831 in 1918.
Washington, D. C.-Reports re
ceived by the department of com
merce show exports of automobiles
have taken a vast jump during recent
years, having more than quadrupled
from 1912 to 1918.
The value of automobile exports
from the United Staels arose within
that period from $25,657.294 to
$110,138,831. Shipments during the
period mentioned to Latin America
increased 708 per cent. The value of
similar exports to Europe. in 1916
was ten times that of the shipments
of 1912. The highest point was
reached in 1916, when shipments
were worth over $120,000,000 and
consisted principally of motor trucks
for war uses. Notwithstanding the
restrictions imposed by the United
States government during the war,
exports during the fiscal year 1917
amounted to $118,377,047, in 1918
to $110,138,831, and during the first
nine months of the 1919 fiscal year
While European trade has declined
since 1916, exports to Africa have
increased 9 per cent; shipments to
Asia and Oceanica rose 21 per cent
in 1917, but fell 26 per, cent in 1918.
Trade with Canada and other sect ions
north of the United States increased
4 per cent in 1917 and 11 per cent
in 1918. Exports to Canada in 1918
amounted to $2,600,000, or nearly
as much as the value of shipments to
all Latin America. Exports of cars
to Latin America increased 252 pert
cents in 1918. The jump in 1916
succeeded the general depression
that followed the outbrteak of the
In 1912 motor cars and trucks
sent. to latlin America cons.tituted 11
per cent. of all exlports of this class.
In 1913 the value of the shipmintsl
rose to 14 per cent of the total, but
fell to 10 per cent the next year and l
reached the lowest mark, 3.5 p)er
cent in 1915. In 1916, the exportsi
to those countries were worth almost
twice as much as in 1913. they con
stituted only 6.8 per cent of the
whole. In 1917 they grew to 1-1 per:

INDIANA LET CONTRACTS
FOR CONGRETE ROADS
On Aug 4. the Indiana state high
way commnission which came into ex
istence as a result. of recent state
legislation, received bids for 54 /:i,
miles of highways. Contracts were
awarded the same day for the entire
mileage all for concrete. This work
is divided into eight separate con
tracts, totaling 579.374 square yards
and involves an expenditure of $1,
891,699.55. Indiana already has a
large mileage of concrete roads that
are giving excellent service, which,
no doubt, was in a large measure re
sponsible for the awards above men- 1
tioned going for concrete exclusively,
although hids were received on two
competing types of construction.

U. S. ROAD BUILDING
NOW ON IN EARNEST
- More Highways Under Ac
tual Construction Than
Tile best thing about the good
roads mlovemenllt now, says the Il
plenment anid Tiactor Trade Journal
(Kansas ('ity, M1o.) is that it is a
movement of materials toward the
roads to be imnplroved and not ex
Sclusively a movement of devoted and
public spirited jaws, as it has been
for 10 or 15 years.
More highways or dcifinite pro
jects are under actual construction
at this time than ever before in the
road-building history of this coun
try. We read further:
'"The returned soldiers from
s France are telling us stay-at-honles
-what good roads mean. The young
SYanks in the A. E. F. came in contact
with roads that had been kept good
I for c.nturies. They know what would
have haplpened in the movement of
troo)ps, suplplies, etc., had it not been
-for the excellent French highways.
a "Highways are meant to travel
over. They will insist that our roads
must meet this reasonable test. All
improvements have to go through
their 'talking stage.' That is char
acteristic of any democracy. tinBut our
public is about to issue an order for
a real system of good roads. These
confident statements are bIorne ort
by the fact that a number of states
have adopted road-building programs
and provided for the money. 'This is
not reconstruction. It is construlc
a tion itself.'

THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT
When putting the car in commis
sion for the year and every month
during the running season the hub
caps should be thoroughly cleaned
out, all the grease and verdigris re
moved, after which the caps should
be packed with fresh grease. It is
also well to clean out the hubs and
bearings, washing them thoroughly
with gasoline, so that dirt and grit
will be dislodged. When this has
been done the moving parts should
be put back in place, and the car can
be driven without fear of improperly
A convenient arrangement for tak
ing up slack in drop light cords is to
put the cord on two pulleys placed at
convenient locations. The cord should
be fastened at two places to pieces of
heavy twine, clothes line will do, and
then a weight is hung on each end of
the line; the cord as suspended from
these lines will be just long enough
to hold the lamp off the floor.
It is sometimes difficult to find a
really satisfactory agent for cleaning
the contact points of ignition appa
ratus or the surface of a commutator
on a starting motor or a lighting dy
namo. There is something known
as "cuttlefish paper," which is finer
than the finest quality of sandpaper
and which is very well adapted to
this operation. Cuttlefish paper is
not regularly carried by hardware
stores, but it may be obtained from
dental supply houses.
The car owner who does his own
repair work sometimes finds it neces
sary to "blue" small bright objects,
such as screws. This may be done by
placing them on a piece of sheet iron
and holding them over a fire until
they assume the desired color.
Sometimes an inner tube receives
a puncture big enough to allow the
tire to become reflexed after a brief
