Tendencies in Motor. Car Construction for 1910
(By Charles E. Duryea, .Mechanical
Expert. American Motor Car Manufac
' Motorists always wait with impa
tience the opening of automobile
shows, as at that time the new offer
ings of the motor car makers are di
vulged for the first time. Just what
the big list of exhibitors at the Grand
Central Palace affair will unfold in
new wrinkles cannot ' be coaclutjlvely
told until the opening on New Year's
j(Eve. - -
Several things have conspired to
force the season of 1910 to the front
and permit at this date a better view
of the coming year than is usual at this
period Of the year. The shortage of
goods during the past summer cleared
the factories and permitted the new
' product to come out sooner. The ab
sence of vehicles on the sales floors of
agents caused them to ask for the now
. product Instead of asking that It be
''held back till the old ones were sold.
Several Interesting and pleasant
things are to be seen in this early view
of the Industry.
The foreign market has been under
going more or less of a' revolution and
France, once the center of things auto
mobile, has given way to England,
i find turned her attention to aeronaut
ics or other sports. England in turn
has set a new pace by Introducing a
number of novelties not likely to
cheapen the product but rather to add
to the cost and luxuriousness. So on
every hand the upwardly swinging
pendulum is to be seen. The buyer
who expects to purchase this coming
j year will do well to get his order in
j The economizing period through
; which the industry has just passed
tai:ght the value o light weight. The
reduced tire and maintenance expenses
of the lighter ears ha been very
marked and has done much to widen
the range of buyers. ,
Because of these things we find
wheel bases again moving forward. It
seemed as though these had reached
the extreme and would follow a down
ward course but aside from the short
coupled town cars this seems not to
I be the case. Thus the Moline touring
car and baby tonneau now uses a wheel
base of 110 inches instead of 107; the
43 horse power Moon is now 120 but
was "heretofore 112; the Pullman is
now 112 Inches, whereas it was but
107; the Mitchell is now 115 in tha
five passenger touring car, instead of
106; the National has been raised to
125 inches from 115; the Overland
base has been lengthened from 10S to
112 Inches; the Carter car has raised
both models from 94 to 103 and from
103 to 110 inches; the Mora base has
been extended two inches, being now
112; the Glide has jumped from 10G to
120, while the Speedwell has only rais
ed from 120 to 121; the Austin has
raised from 130 to 134, while the Reo
has also raised to 108, from something
I like 100 last year.
This lengthening of base has gone
forward with a shortening of motors in
many cases. . The tendency seems to
be toward lighter motors, and with ail
! the cylinders cast in a separate piece,
j instead as in most cases, separately.
I This makes the motors shorter and
does not require so much roonj in the
bonnets. This leaves more room for
passengers, and the length of base ha3
been used to the passengers' benefit ia
several ways. In some cases the bod
ies have been lengthened and more leg
room provided. In others the seats for
the rear passengers have been brought
forward and gotten in front of the rear
axle where the riding is easle. This
axle where the riding is easier. This
more easy entry to the tonneau. In
other cases the extra room has been
given to hooded dashes which by ex
tending backward over the driver's
feet and legs, protect him from the
weather and wind, and add comfort ns
well as the sporty look so much af
fected by some users.
In many cases the added length has
been utilized to introduce longer
springs, which have in turn, softened
the vibrations and very much helped
out the riding qualities of the respec
tive cars. The lighter weight of the
past two years has also done much to
better the spring action and there is
much evidence that In future, comfort
rather than mere speed,' will take pre
There Is also to be seen a tendency
toward larger wheel sizes. The fact is
slowly being recognized that the cycle
was not the predecessor of the motor
car and that cycle practice, such as
wire wheels and smaller tires, was a
mistake. The former; was quickly
learned but the latter has been a 6 low
Not only in wheel sizes but in tires
do we find an increase. Quite a num
ber have increased the tire section in
spite of the rising price of rubber.
These are but a few of the visibie
changes for the coming year which in
dicate the trend.

A CHRISTMAS CONSERVE
By ELLA STEPHENS.
(Copyright. 1909. by American Press Asso

Remove the juice and pulp
And add the rinds, grated most fine
Or by machine ground up.
Next put through the grinding machine
Or chop in wooden bowl
The walnuts and the raisins good
And almonds, blanched when whole.
Dissolve the sugar in a pint
Of excellent grape juice;
Then add to it the other things
And gradually reduce
By simmering all quite slowly down
Till like a marmalade.
Put into glasses, seal and place
Within the pantry's shade.

How to Make Better

A full pint of cough syrup
enough to last a family a long
timecan be made by the rec

for only 54 cents. Simple as it
is, there is nothing better at
any price. It usually stops a
deep-seated cough in 24 hours
and is a splendid household
remedy for whooping cough,
colds, hoarseness, bronchitis,
Take a pint of granulated
sugar, add one-half pint warm
water and stir about two min

The chemical elements of
pine which are very healing to

high proportion in Pinex, the
most valuable concentrated
compound of Norway white

weaker pine preparations will
work with this recipe. Tour

' Christmas Firecrackers.
In many parts of the south for years
after the civil war it was Christmas
instead of the Fourth of July that was
the season for firecrackers. Every
Christmas the storekeepers laid In large
supplies of firecrackers, and the small
boy of that period felt sadly slighted
by Santa Claus unless be found at
least one of his stockings stuffed with
bunches of the little red explosives. In
these districts such a thins as a fire
cracker on the Fourth of July was un
known. Of late years, however, the
firecracker has been restored to its
proper date in nearly every community,
and Christmas noise is confined chiefly
to the blowing of horns and the beat
ing of toy drams.
