HTIGIT COSTI OF O~IFfAP R1OADtR.
Our readersi, espeela~hlly those who
drIve auttomyobiles, -wIll be interested
in the report given The AdvertIser by
an automob)Ile man from Ne0r York,
who has been spending several weeks
in our city. It seems that in his daily
rounds lie was quite apt to pass by
our repair garages and in passing
would glance in to see the nature of
the repairs being made. After several
weeks of observation he concluded
that the greatest percentage of repairs
was oil the rear axle and differential.
The reason for this, he explaw.'ed, was
two-fold. The bad roads wear out the
ears in this vital spot so that very
frequently repairs were needed. An
other reason given was the practice
of starlng aid stopping Cars too sld
denly. It seells that wlhtel a (ar' is
started o tlddely as to give 1lh1 o:
