*Eighteen Feet For Paved Road.
A minimum width of 18 feet fer
hardi surface roads is recommended
by the bureau of public roads of the
United States department of agricul
ture. according to information receiv
'ed by the state highway department.
The maximum widlth of a truck body
generally permitted is eight feet and
'five and one-half feet is tile ordinary
clearance width of automobiles, the
bureau of public roadis advises.
*"At an average speed of 30 miles
~per hous it is unmreasonable to exp~ect
the driver of an automnoile to dirive
wiith his wheels closer- than one and~

Rates on Briok Dusoussed.
Brick manufacturers and ropresen.
tatives of the railroads were here in
large numbers apsaring before the
railroad commission in the hearing
on the rates on brick in the state. Only
intrastate rates were in question.
The carriers attempting to get the
commission to restore the rates as
of July 11, 1921, which would increase
the rates in South Carolina for hauls
up to 75 miles and decrease them
slightly for hauls over 76 miles.
The interstate commerce commis
sion has a hearing on the matter of
discrimination in the rates from Au
gusta to South Carolina points, this
hearing 'being scheduled for July 19,
but in the case. of South Carolina the
commission restores the rates to the
old schedule of July 11, 1921, the hear
ing will not be held. The original com
plaint was brought by Merry Brothers
et al of Augusta before the interstate
commerce commission. Practically all
the South Carolina manufacturers are
opposing this restoration.
In case the commission restores the
old rate, less the 10 per cent decrease
ordered by the interstate commission
on July 1, 1922, the rate in South Caro
lina would be increased one-half of a
cent on every hundred pound up to 75
miles and decreased from one-half a
cent to one cent on every hundred
pounds on longer than 75-mile hauls.
If the old rate is re-established it
would put Augusta shippers on a parn
ity with South Carolina manufacturers.
The commission also heard a num
ber of ice manufacturers, who claim
the rates on less than ca-rload lots of
ice are too high. The minimum of
$15 for carload lots was also protest
ed against by the manufacturers. The
carriers were also well represented.
The commission took both the peti
tions under advisement.
Representing the railroads at the c
brick rate hearing were: T. T. Massen- t

Southern, Washington; J. W. Perrin, f

This firm had submitted the low bid r

The company was relieved of all re

its bid stand beyond the date on which
the contract was to have been awarded
and duo to the advance in materials,
especially on the concrete and steel,
it felt that no further delay could be
made. Prices on the materials have
adva nced considerabmly since the bidr I
were received May 10 and the materia

Many Motorists Experience Con.
siderable Trouble From Their
Engines Overheating.
Most Essential That There Be Free
Circulation of Water, Freedom
From Scale and Strong Cur.
rent of Cooled Air.
I.very automobile owner or driver
knows froni experience that a gas en
ilne becomes hot after running for
some time. This is due to the explo
sions or rapid burning of the gas In
side the cylinders.
A large percentage of the heat de
veloped in the cylinder goes to heat
up the cylinder walls and if these
!annot be cooled either by strong
>lasts of air or water circulation
tround them, they will become so hot
hat they will crack and break apart
>r at least become warped out of
1hape and become useless. By far
he greater number of cars use what
s known as the water-cooling system.
How Water is Cooled.
The water flows around the cylinder
rails and then through piping and
uhber hose connections into the radi
tor where it is spread out in thin
heets or small pipes which have an
amense amount of surface exposed
o the air. In this manner the water
s cooled and then flows back to the
ngine in order to keep it, also, cooled
o the proper temperature.
If any part of the cooling system
aills to function properly, the cylin
ers are not cooled and we say that
he engine overheats. Water, as we
now, cannot he hented above 212 de
rces h'. without helng placed under
ressure. Therefore, the water which
ows airound the cylinder walls cannot
e heated abiove this temperature. If
he water is not kept slightly below
his temperature, It will rapidly evap
rate by boiling. If the engine is run
*thout water in the water jacket the
ylinder walls will be hented above
Heir normal temperature, with the re
ilt that the oil will he entirely

You Auto Kno*v
That one of the chief causes
of automobile fires, especially
during cool weather, is "backfir
ing," which, in turn, is due to
the mixture not being sufliclent
ly rich in gasoline. When the
backfire occurs a sheet of flame
leaps from the air intake of the
carburetor, and if it strikes
anything of an easily inflamma
ble nature, a serious explosion
or flame is likely to result.
The collection of gasoline upon
the drip-pan is one of the prin
cipal dangers in this connection,
for the gas vaporizes so rapidly
that, if the pan is not properly
drained or cleaned at regular
intervals, there is almost certain
to be a suficient mixture in the
vicinity of the carburetor to
cause trouble from backfire and
the subsequent flame. The pre
vention of this risk, of course,
lies in the frequent use of the
chok-or in starting during cold
weatYier, and also in keeping the
drip-pan and the carburetor well
cleaned, although fires have also
been known to start from back
firing igniting pools of oil or
grease on the floor of a garage.
