Comparatively few farmers could nfford to purchase n motortruck Just
for hauling to nnd front tho farm. Mnny truck mnnufneturers and salesmen
upparently havo tho Iden that for hnullng to nnd from tho farm Is where tho
greatest need for the truck comes ; this is simply n lack of conception of tho
farmer's hauling requirements.
The most Important need for the truck Is on tho farm Itself where Its
economy nnd convenience will bo most felt. On most furms thcro nro ten
cases where tho truck Im needed for hnullng about the farm to ono for hauling
to or from tho farm. The man who now owns a tractor nnd motorcar should
consider the possibilities of the truck as n means of still further reducing tho
horse and man labor requirement In his business. Power Farming.
ELECTRIC CAR IS
ADAPTED TO CITY
Periodic Recharging of Batteries
Makes It Impossible to Go -Long
OUTLYING STATIONS SCARCE
Greater Mileage Obtained From Bat
tery Freehly Charged Testing
With Piece of Metal Common
Fault Use Voltmeter.
Tho electric vehicle, whether truck
or pleasure, Is of necessity a city ma
chlno. Tho periodic recharging of tho
storage batteries makes it Imposslblu
for tho car to travel very great dis
tances from Its baso of supply, for tho
charging stations In outlying districts
aro few nnd far between.
Tho construction of n battery Is com
paratively simple. It consists of n
posltlvo plato (of n reddish brown
color) and a negatlvo plate (of a gray
ish color), Hpparntcd by a ribbed wood
or hard rubber separator. The frame
work of n plate, which, In battery
technique, is called a grid, consists of
lead, nnd Into this the active material
Is pressed. Tho active material Is
mndo up of red lead mixed with proper
chemicals for th6 posltlvo plate, nnd
pure lead of a. spongy character for
Arrangement of Plate.
A number of these plates, sufficient
to glvo the desired nmperngo, oro con
nected to their respectlvo terminals
with n piece of metal, such ns n wire,
Ncrcwdrlver, etc., getting n spark by a
direct short circuit. Don't do this, for
It cnuscs the plntes to buckle and
crack. A voltmeter Is the only In
strument that can safely be used, other
than n hydrometer. A cell will read
about 2.2 volts on a voltmeter.
When chnrglng n battery tho elec
trolyte will hent up to u degree de
pending upon tho rate of chnrglng.

and pnt Into n container or Jar of hard
rubber, after which dilute sulphuric
acid, and distilled water Is added
which forms tho electrolyte. Tho pos
itive plate has n negative plate placed
on either side of It.
The 110-ampere-hnur cells, so much
used on business cars, are connected
In series In batteries of 40 to -15 cells
to secure tho full working capacity.
A simple explanation of a battery,
when charging or discharging, Is that
the positive plato expels or breathes
out tho clcvtrolyto on charging nnd
soaks up or Inhales It on discharging.
This nlso explains, why n bnttery will
giro greater mileage on afresh charge,
losing It uhen the car Is left In tho
garngo for any length of time,
Tho best way to ascertain the bat
tery's condition U by tho use of n
hydrometer syringe, A fully charged
cell will read nbout 1,275 to 1,1100
points and a discharged cell around

The Storaae Battery It Supposedly a
Complicated Contrivance, but It's
Very Simple to Understand.
This cnuscs evaporation, nnd tho elcc
trolyto must bo replenished with dis
tilled water to Its accustomed level.
All wiring on tho car should be
periodically Inspected for damaged In
sulation, especially If acid has been
spllted upon It by any mishap, for the
acid cats through tho wlro insulation
In n very short time. Hear In mind
that tho electrical power In n battery
Is limited, and everything dono to con
serve It will mean u saving of expense
nnd labor. All movnblo contacts
should bo cleaned frequently, for dirt,
grease, nnd foreign substnnces prevent
tho controller working properly nnd
prevent good contact being made,
which wnstes current. Tho genrlng
nnd wheels should he looked over and
greased about onco n year.
Causes of Trouble,
Dragging brakes, poor contact, under-Inflated
tires, also causo a surpris
ing amount of trouble.
Be suro to keep tho battery solution
above tho plates. Do not let tho tern
peraturo exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit
when charging, Do, not let the bnttery
stand Idle when discharged. Keep the
battery and all Its connections clean.
Follow tho manufacturer's Instruction!
Dso the hydrometer to ascertain the
density of the solution,
Avoid excessive use of current. n.
Worthman, Jr., In Popular Science
Keep off car tracks nnd out of ruts,
The motortruck on tho farm Is not

Dim your lights when approaching
another auto on tho road,
Do not allow your storage battery
