The way to keep an automobile In
good shape and to avoid expense for
repairs and replacements is to use
first, oil; second, oil; and third, more
oil. f If buyers would exercise just a
little, care in learning a f jw of the ele
mentary principles of their machines,
there would be little or no difficulty
about this service proposition. Un
doubtedly many dealers and salesmen
are 'themselves to blame for this con
dition. They neglect; to properly in
struct buyers or fail to impress upon
them the absolute necessity -of study
ing their instruction books while their
machine is new. The result is that
the novice ? driver allows his oil ." to
become used . up, or fails to screw

and in its economical operation. For
instance, the powerful 4-cylinder motor
is controlled 1y a patented governor;
it cannot be driven over 18 miles an
hour; it has quick- demountable sol
