Ileal estate brokerage readily
classifies itself into several divi'

Knowledge of value is arrived at
by comparison. An accumulation of
land value comparisons enables one, |
ultimately, to speak with authority j
on values. If stumped with a question
about values, the broker _
should not hesitate to say that he ' 1
would prefer to look further into J

The successful broker knows his j *
city as he knows himself. He must j
have an accurate gauge on its
growth, must watch the trend of
factory and commercial development
and be able to forecast its significance.
Brokerage having to do with locating
manufacturing concerns and | s
warehouses is extremely interesting. I t
Thre is a certain amount of satis- j
faction in locating a new plant that |a
may employ a large number of c
people To be worth his salt in this 0
class the broker must have followed
all the railway tracks in the r
country. He must know the topography
of all the available lots or
He must know about switching ;
and switching facilities.
He must know the kind of factories
in all parts of his territory ^
and exactly what they produce.
He must know about water, sewer, j r

facilities in connection with every
piece of property. n
He must know exactly where the ! d

Labor that travels a long distance j
? usually demands the highest wage ?
and shifts constantly, causing a
large labor turnover. A large labor .

The term proper lubrication has ai
o vary uict meaning (or tha av- n
rage car owner, and yet it can be tl
elined exactly. It mean* the quel- U
ty of oil needed by the Individual al
art, supplied In the proper quan- f<
ity, neither too little nor too much, tl
nd changed with sufficient fre- el
luency to keep it in condition to pi
unction properly. This latter con- ta
Ition carries with it the implica- cl
ion that the crank oaae or other
art shall be flushed out with keroene
before new oil is put In. From R

wner muat devote some study to a|
he particular needs of his partlcu- ri
ar vehicle In order to maater the bi
ubrlcatlon needs of the car. 1<

What is meant by gear reduc- 01
ion on high? What relation has
he speed of the motor to its power m

The term gear reduction refers
0 the ratio between the number

-nother gear. The gear reduction tl
n high ia the ratio between the ft
umber of teeth on the differential ?
lng gear and the driving pinion.
?hus 1 to 1 means that there are rr
bree times as many teeth on the T
Ing gear as there are on the pin- b
on. This means that the engine v

t is a nuisance to be lifting the a

The pump which you have is
robably a very cheap one, because
well made and properly lnatalled t
nglne-drlven pump rarely gives "

hlng Is a pump driven from the N
orward end of the crankahaft. This '

nd the best I can get is about ?
wenty-two miles au hour. Also ii
loes burning out your carbon by e
-xygen hurt the engine??K. p. t
Answer?There is no question e
hat your trouble is caused by poor b
nixture, and from indications I be- Ii
ieve it is too rich. Your carbu- t
eter is adjustable and if you will n
urn the needle as far down as it h
rill go and then turn it back two
urns you can get a fairly good
nixture. which can be further tl
hanged by other adjustments. Run m
s lean as possible if after mak- d'
ng the adjustments suggested you
till have trouble, write me again. r'
is to burning out the carbon in the cl
resence of oxygen, this will not
njure the engine if the work is ri
roperly done. Of course even iron b
rhen incandescent will burn in an c!
tmosphere of oxygen, but there is
Ittle chance of a rough spot oa the
iston or cylinder head becoming n^candescent.
You should be careul
about spark plugs when 'using w
xygen. the better way being to re- b
love them and plug the holes, or a
eed the oxygen through the spark p,
luK holes. dl
Question?I have a great deal of
uel trouble and have not been able

>oes the vacuum tank ever give ?
X. Y. Z. ?t'
Answer?Vacuum tanks rarely 8j
ive trouble, but even so. in your ^
sse I suspect It. It is likely that ft,
he linkage from the tank float to f(
he controlling valves in the top of
he tank is not working right, caus- ir
flg the float to stick and not admit al
uel to the tank as it should. Also m
he tank float may have a small aj
ole in it. If you understand the
