Pointers That Will Prove Help-

STARTING CRANK SUGGESTIONS
Motorist Would Save Time and Trou
ble if Releasing Spring Was Made
Lighter—A Lubricating Evil—Help
For Dry Battery.
It may be taken as axiomatic that a
knack is required in the manipulation
of any starting cranli. but the greater
number ot them would be much more
easy to handle if the releasing spring
was made lighter. With a stiff releas
ing spring -my relaxation <>f the turn
ing effort on the part of the one crank
ing causes tin- handle to fly out and dis
engage itself. It has then to be turned
around and pressed in again. While it
is advisable to have a spring sufficient
ly strong to insure that the ratchet
will be kept out of engagement while
the engine is running, there is no rea
son Why the spring should be at all
stiff. An extremely tight spring will
serve all the purposes of releasing if
the crank spindle is occasionally given
a drop or two of oil.
The use of ;in inferior quality of In
bricatlng oil leads to a number of evils,
apart from unsatisfactory lubrication.
Carbon deposits will form on the coin
bastion ch^uber walls, on the piston
heads and on the points of the spark
ing plugs. Ignition will be interfered
■with and finally stopped through short
Circuiting across tlie insulation of the
plugs. The deposit may in time be
come so thick as to hold sufficient heat
from one explosion to another to cause
pre-ignltion. which is liable to cause
the motor to run with more or ies^
"knock." If pre-lgnition is suspected
a lest can be made by cutting out the
ignition current. If tins fault is not
present the motor will stop, but if pre-
Ignition is occurring the motor will
run without the assistance of legiti
mate aids to Ignition. Shutting: off
tlu- supply of fuel will bring the en
gine to a standstill.
When a dry battery appears exhaust
ed it will usually be found that its
deliberation is due primarily to the
contents having become too dry. Boles
s!:uu!d accordingly be made at the t<.;>
and water poured in. which will star'
the current ai:ain in most cases. Vin
egar may be used with even berter ef
fect than water, but in any ease
these measures should be regarded
oiny as of a temporary nature, and
new batteries should be obtained at
the earliest possible moment.
Large tires will stand harder usage
Than small ones and will give better
service as long as they last. A less
abrupt bending of the fabric of a tire
invariably follows a shock to a larger
than a smaller tire, and the strain ex
erted on the tread when the car is in
motion is divided over a large area.
thus affording better traction and con
serving the strength of the tire.
Amateur repair men when taking
any equipment of their machines to
pieces are liable to lose or misplace
some of the smaller nuts or screws
unless a definite method of keeping
them is followed. For this reason it
is advisable to use a number of small
s into which the small pieces from
each part of the car may be sorted
It i<- especially worth while to do this
where some time may elapse before
the mechanism is put together again.
An experienced driver keeps a number
of tin ."ir.s. partly filled with kerosene.

tak.es them from his car.
A Coid Seat.
Th ;r ■ ■ : :>. landaulet or a
limousine is far colder than that of
an open car. This is due to t'io glass
immediately at the back of the seat,
which :u-!s :is a wall against which the
wind drives, so that the backs of the
occupants of the driving seat are in
a constant chilling current of air. Di
rectly the front windows of the lan
daulet are opened this cold bank of
air la dissipated, but. of course, in
really cold weather The front window
of the landaulet cannot be opened, so
that the occupants of the front seat
have to shiver.
A Note of Discord.
When a cylinder begins to overheat
either from lack of sufficient lubricat
ing oil or from any other cause it gen
erally makes its conditions known by
a scraping, grating noise as the dry
metals rub against each other at each
stroke of the piston. A car will at
once show a loss of power under such
circumstances, ami no time should be
lost in making an investigation of the
cause of the trouble. If the engine is
kept running unattended to it will
surely result in scoring the cylinder
walls, and the piston is practically cer
tain to seize.
Care of the Magneto.
If a magneto is dismembered the
permanent magnets should not be left
without keepers—that is. a piece of
iron or steel bar across the ends of the
U magnets. If not it will result in
the loss of a certain amount of mag
netism and a consequent diminution
in the power of the machine* as a pro
ducer of electric current. It is only
under extraordinary conditions that
the removal of the magnets is neces
sary, and therefore practically they
should never be touched.

To remove ink stains from white ma

sprinkle it with salt and rub with half

Rinse off the acid and wash at once.
While the ink stains are wet a good
plan is lo sprinkle some powdered

When ink stains are fresh they may
be removed by dipping the stained
part into buttermilk or milk that hr.s

When ink has been allowed to get

then pour boiling water on carefully to
prevent the acid from spreading, as it

It is advisable fur tuis reason that

Breathe Hyomei for Two Minutes

never known to exist.
HYOMEI is pleasant and easy to

and cure is almost certain.
A complete Hyomei outfit, including

No Sufferer From Any Disease or Ailment
Should Fail to Have a Free Consul

The city of Colfax will soon be
favored by a visit of the noted
Dr. DarVin, who has created such
a furore throughout the coast and
Northwest by his remarkable
cures, which have been the prin
cipal topic and sensation where
ever he has been. He will ar
rive Tuesday, Nov. Ist, and will
remain for a limited time only,
until Nov. 15th. His office will
be in the Hotel Colfax and can
be consulted during an}- hour of
the day. The afflictcd>in this vi
cinity should not fail to consult
him while here, as he comes only
for the accommodation of those
who cannot afford to visit the
specialist in large cities.
Dr. Darrin needs no introduc
tion as he is well known, and
comes to us laden with testimon
ials from throughout the whole
Northwest, and the authentic re
ports of some of his cures seem
nothing short of miracles. So
many thousands are already ac
quainted with his mode of treat
ment, it seems necessary only to
say that he perfects cures by
ability, skill and knowledge,
backed up by years of experience.
Dr. Darrin is certainly the most
remarkable and successful phy
sician now before the public. The
perceptive faculties of this physi
cian seem so well trained that he
tells at once every disease of the
human body and precisely what
condition of health or disease ex
ists; detects and describes every
symptom, ache and pain and gives
