A suburbanite who luiil khiwii to he
somewhat ashamed of the appearance

tellA how he wns liiiluceil to renew the
hodv llnMi, nnd the memis he Ued
limy suKKest to other motovMs now
Ihey can in-ervo the new appearance
of (heir automobiles.
"A iieluhlmr neici'.s the street," he
mid. "had a bt(. eluht-eyllnder car,
which I noticed wax alwnH left stand

"l.ii-l suniiner the appearance of

ner os. and he dccld-d to hne It re
painted, lie took It to n local auto
mobile paint shop, where It was found
that the original llnMi was so badly
cracked that the surface had to he
removed. Then eight coats of paint,
with a llnul -"iit of varnish, wore put
on. The en-t wii sornethlng like $S.",
nnd pi Ices have gone up appreciably
since then. However, the Job was
well done, and when my neighbor ap
peared In his repainted ear I began
to feel how badly my car suffered by
"I had always made It a custom to
put my car la the gaiage when It was
standing Idle for nny length of time,
i nnd not loae It In front of my limine.
Notwithstanding this care, the luster
of the body gradually began to disap
pear as the llrst season went by and
at the end of the second eur It had
almost a slate color.
"Several garage owners told me Hint
the finish could be renewed by the ap
plication of it little varnish, and I
found upon Inquiry that the nutomo
bllo pnliilers wore asking S2."i for the
Job. The work of varnishing a car
' did not ocin to be particularly dllll
. cult, so I Invested SI. fit) In a brush and
)(!.' cents In a can of an.lsh and made
preparations to ghe my car u new
dressing. I llrst washed both body
and ehasN with lukewarm water, and
then I droe It under a tree at the side
of the hoiie.
"I took pains, .of course, to pick n
clear, ilr. day. nnd the nrnlsh was
applied without any trouble. A slight
breeze accelerated the drying process,
and the Mlowlng day 1 put on a sec
ond coat, null time putting a coat of
black enamel on the chassis.
"One of the an. using Incidents In
connection with my first undertaking
as an iiutomnblle painter occurred
when m, neighbor, who was working
In his gaidcn. stopped now and then
to watch my progress. it took a
couple of hours to put on each coat

came out under tho tree. Ho took
ono guod look at the car and mut

DRIVE OVER BROKEN STONES
Best Way Is to Take Short Run and
Let Car Coast With Clutch Out
Tires Are Saved.
The best way to drive a car over a
short .stretch of broken stone Is to take
a short run nt It not too fast and let
the ear coast over tho stone with the
clutch out. Thus the rear tires aro re
lieved of driving strains uud of the re
sulting tearing actions of sharp stones
on the rubber. Of course, It Is not al
ways practicable to do this, but when
It can ho done It adds just a little more
