FUEL IS WANT
Something Must Bo Found Within
the Next Twenty Years to
SUPPLY NEARLY EXHAUSTED
Qermany Has Demonstrated Possibil
ity of Driving Motor Vehicles With
Benzoic New Carburetor Must
At the present rate of consumption
tho motor car demand for gasoline can
hardly ho supplied for another 120
When wo think of power wo uro npt
to think of Btdiin mirIiicm nnd of coal
shoveled by grimy stokers Into fiery
furnaces. Few reiillsco Unit our guso
lino engines, thosp that nn used on
tho fnrin nml on tin wnlor ns well ns
on tho road, goitenito more Hum twice
tho power of nil our atoum plants. Our
pleasure cars alone drlyo us through
tho country nt u Ktiiggerlug total ex
penditure of 8.",000,t)00 horse power.
If nit tho gasoline engines In the coun
try vun to run every day for only
ten hours a day, our gasoline supply
would ho exhausted In n month.
Germany Ugcs Benzole.
It is abundantly evident that within
tho next decade a new fuel must be
found for the motor oar. Germany
has demonstrated tho possibility of
driving motor vehicles with benzole,
11 by-product obtained In the manufac
ture of coke. But since benzoic Is not
produced In sulllclontly largo quanti
ties and since, moreover, It Is required
In tho inanufncture of explosives, dyes
and chemlcnls, It Is not lllcely to take
the place of gasoline.
Kerosene must drive the motor enr
of tomorrow. Unfortunately, It docs
not vnporlzo so readily ns gasoline.
Nor enn It bo elllclently utilized for
road locomotion In engines that now
rnnsumu gasoline. New feeding de
vices must bo Invented ; n new, .simple
typo of carburetor must ho devised;
u new kind of engine must he created.
All this motor car mnnufnetiirers have
foreseen. For ninny months their re
search engineers lmvo been nt work.
When the prlco of gncollno reaches
00 cents or more n gallon tho kerosene
motor car will appear.
Crude Oil Dwindling.
Since the crudo oil supply of tho
world Is stendlly dwindling, tho Inven
tion of n Kitlsfnctory kerosene engine
must Inevitably prove hut 11 makeshift
which will tide us over for 11 decade or
two. What then? Either tho alcohol
engine or the electric storage battery
will bo Intensively developed for me-
SMALL BOY STEALS A HITCH
Youngsters May Do Kept Off Spare
Tire Holder by Use of Strip
of Spiked Metal.
The cry of our childhood, "whip he
hind!" Is out of date, hut the need for
n substitute Is very much here. Roys
have n trick of stealing rides on tho
spare tiro holder, when It Is In tho
rear of the car; this Is had for tho tiro
holder, nnd It may bo much worse for
tho hoy If ho happens to fall off at tho
wrong time. A strip of spiked metal
material, such ns frequently adorns
park railings and similar places, may
nmko tho tire holder too uncomfortable
n scat even for the ambitious small
hoy Intent on stealing a hitch.
FIX CRACKED WATER JACKET
Repair May Be Made at Home If Car
Owner Is Handy With Tools
How It Is Done.
A cracked water Jacket may bo
mended nt home If tho car owner Is
n moderately handy workman. Drill
n small hole at each end of tho crack
nnd tap It for n small copper plug.
Next scrape the surfneo near tho cruel:
until the metal Is bright. Cover tho
crack with soft copper tilings and melt
them In with a blow torch. Use n tlux
of resin dissolved In alcohol.
ROAD-SCRAPER ATTACHED TO POWERFUL
AUTOMOBILE TRUCK CUTS THROUGH SNOW
jfjdn "TirtnMi fibril 'fclaV' j -k Xtyv-"
With One of These Scrapers You
A new rond-scrapor, which may be used for smoothing uneven dirt or
gravel roads or for scraping 11 path In tho snow for nutomnblles or other
vehicles, Is attached to a powerful automobile truck. Tho bludo Is 12 Inches
wldo nnd Is of carbon spring steel. Hy six carbon steel springs tho blade Is
Huspcnded from a hanger liourd, which Is set between tho front and rear
wheels of tho truck.
Tho scraper Is hinged to a shnft, and can bo raised or lowered by n
rtinln and wlndlnss operated from tho driver's seat. Two small scrapers,
placed In advanco of tho fjont wheels, aro designed to provldo good tractlou: nppi0 wno of tho Champagne typo,
for tho drive wheel of tho truck. Popular Sdouco Monthly. I K usual he Is making ft bit inccess.
AUTOMOBILE STUCK IN MUD
Instead of Jamming Down Accelerator
Shift Into Low and Give Wheela
Chanco to Catch.
It Is n natural Impulse when the
car stalls In soft going to Jam down I
the ncceierntor to get 111 1 possmio pow
er from tho motor. But If tho car has
stalled because the rear wheels cannot
take hold In soft mud and uro slipping
nround, this Is not the best way out.
The whirling wheels simply dig down
deeper. It Is better, after shifting Into
low, to let the motor run ut compara
tively low speed and edge the clutch In
gently. This will give the renr wheels
n better chance to take hold. Often
one ran get out better under these con
ditions If there Is 11 load In the rear
If tho wheels continue to slip nt
slow speed, It becomes necessary to tlo
ropes nbout tho rear wheels or to
throw straw or brush under them.
With n light car one can often help It
forward by placing one end of 11 stout
plunk or polo tinder the rear nxlo nnd
with the ltvernge thus gained lift It
forwnrd while another applies the
power slowly. Milestones.
CAR GOOD FOR CUTTING ICE
With on Automobile Pulllno the Ma
chine Two Men Only Aro Needed
to Perform Work.
Last winter was so cold that enough
Ico must have formed to provide 11
generous supply for thexdog days. Rut
shortage of labor, that old war cry,
applied Itself to Ice cutting ns well us
to other Industries.
Hero Is nn excellent scheme to
mnko up for the absence of leo cut
lers. It Is worth trying out If you
have nn automobile, 11 cutting machine,
come Ice, 11 place to l.eep It In when
tut, und 11 friend to help you do It.

Automobile Cutting Ice.
Simply nttnch the cutting nmchlno to
tho automobile, nnd let the car pull
the cutter across the Ice.
Lest tho car skid on the slippery
Ice, tho two back tires should be re
moved and Iron rims with spikes on
them substituted An tin extra precau
tion, put rtiolnWin your front wheels.
One man runs tho automobile and
tho other guides the machine If your
friend Is good nntured, let htm trot be
hind with the cutter handle In his
hand. If he Is not, do It yourself and
let him run tho car.
Provided one bus the facilities, It Is
quite possible for two men, ono au
tomobile, anil 11 cutting machine to do
the work of many Ico cutters. Pop

TRACING A LEAK OF VALVES
Packing Very Frequently Becomes
Soft and Trouble Follows Ex-
amino All Gaskets.
In overhead valve engines, whero
tho valves uro carried In removable
cages, gaskets uro used to give 11 tight
Joint when tho cago Is screwed In
place. This pneklng very frequently
becomes soft and tho result Is 11 leak
around the valve, which may be dim
cult to locate unless one is uwaro of
this likelihood. Slmllnrly In multi
cylinder endues tho gaskets used at
tho point whero tho Intake manifold
Joins the different cylinders Mioulil
bo carefully examined whenever tho
manifold Is taken off, as leaks uro
likely to develop here.
TO CROSS RAILROAD TRACKS
Mways Go Over In Second Speed to
Avoid Danger Engine Easily
Stalled in High.
Alwnys cross railroad tracks In sec
ond speed. You will, of course, run
over them slowly to avoid damage to
tho tires, but tho engine Is easily
stalled when throttled down on high
sjieed. On over In second and you uro
more likely to bo safe.
