It Is Mr. James' intention to turn the

TxRa 8aavi3ga..'-Mr. W. T; Mears,
Df this place, has invented a "tire
sbrinker," with whicb he shrinks tires
without cutting them, The machine
is a piece of simple, though ingenious,
work, and a tire can be shrunk with
it as much as desired within one third
the time required by the old process
of cutting. Mr. Mears had never seon
a machine for shrinking tires when
he invented his, which is quite differ
ent from the patent ono now used by
a good many blacksmiths throughout
the 'country. The following is a short
description of the "shrinker," though
it will have to be seen to bo under
stood; Bar of iron 11 inches thick by
151 inches in lengtb, curved in shape
of a tire and fastened to a bench, with
clamps at each end, through which
keys are driven to hold tire in position
and keep it from giving when ham-.
mered. The tire is heated and given
a sharp bend, placed in machine and
keyed up by means of the clamps,
then hammered down to the bar of
iron, which gives the necessary con
traction. The tire is then taken out
and hammered on the anvil on the
edges and face to give it proper shape.
The only differenco seen in the tire
aftcr shrunk is an enlargement at the
place where the contraction was ob
tained. Parties who sec a tiro shrunk
in this manner will never after have
one cut. Mr. Mears is prepared to do
work on short notice. See advortise%
