That the automotive Industry was
one of the large, customers of the rail
roads during- 1935 la disclosed. by
freight records Just made, public. This
disclosure follows announcement that
the railroads enjoyed record earnings
last year.
Freight carloads of automotive
products hauled by the railroads In
8. Marvin, chairman of the traffic
managers conference of the National
Automobile Chamber of Commerce.
This total included shipments of motor
cars and parts, gasoline used In auto
mobiles. road-hnlldlng material and
kindred freight. Many other Items,
such as building materials and equip
ment for factories and garages, less
than carload shipments of parts and
accessories and express matter, are
not included, because there la no sep
arate classification for these.
Report of Statisticians.
Statisticians find that It would take
all the passenger and freight locomo
tives and all of the various kinds of
freight cars of the railroads nearly
ten days to handle this business at
one time ; all of which is another way
of stating the fact that of 51,177,962
carloads of freight of all kinds han
dled by the railroads In 1923, more
than three million carloads were In
duced by the manufacture and use of
motor cars.
The Importance of this business to
railroads is emphasized by comparison
with the shipping of other principal
commodities In 1025. Coal leads with
8,806,392 carloads, followed by forest
products, 3,741,068; grain and grain
products. 2.300,100 ; ore, 2,018.854; live
stock, 1,636,252. Shipments of automo
biles and parts alone during the year
approximated 820,000 carloads, com
pared with 740,578 In 1924. '

Superior Driving Rules
Outlined for Closed Car
With a view to familiarizing motor
ists with changing conditions, the
American Automobile association out
lines the four points for the average
driver who buys a closed car:
1. Learn that you may be traveling
at a higher rate of speed without real
izing It, particularly where the grade
is slightly downward. Speed la al
ways a hazard when you are not
aware of your actual speed.
2. Learn that physical comforts of
fered by the closed body In adverse
weather do not alter the highway haz
ards. Your hands may be warm but
there may be Just as much Ice on the
road as when you formerly sldvercd
In your open car, or stayed at home.
8. Learn that though you can see
out better In your closed car than yon
could through rain curtains the few
obstructions to vision, such as the
body posts, are at points you are not
accustomed to.
4. Learn that other drivers In closed
cars are usually as unfamiliar with
the new conditions as you are, and
that the safest plan Is always to give
a bit to the "other fellow."
Proper Use of "Choker"
If mlxtnre Is thought to be too lean
pull up slightly on the "choker" on
tbe dash,
shows too lean a mixture and low
speed adjustment should be opened
until the engine runs properly. Of
course, the "choker" should be re

Making Substitute for -.
Defective Ignition Coil
While tonring recently a friend of
mine burned ont the ignition coll. The
only repair roan In the neighborhood
had nothing but a few spare parts for
light cars, yet he fixed tbe ignition
system fairly well with a substitute
coll. This was made from one of the
Substituts for Burned Out Ignition
small box colls that are used in com
bination with the magneto Ignition
of small cars.
Three insulated wires were soldered
to the contact points on the coll cas
ing and connected, as shown In the
ITIustratroh. The distributor connec
tion was made with a high tènslon
wire. The vibrator of the coll was
bridged by screwing the contact points
solidly against the corS of the coll.

Burn Lights in Daytime
to Avoid Overcharging
Because you see a car running In
the daytime with the ligbta on do not
think that the driver haa been out all
night and Is Just getting In. Perhaps
he has, but lights burning In the day
time is not a sure sign. Mors than
likely the owner is on a long trip
during which he runs principally dur
ing the daylight hours. Consequently
be does not have an opportunity to
use the stored-up current In his bat
tery, and In order to keep the bat
tery functioning properly and not get
ting overcharged be Is burning his.,
lights to use up some of this pent-up
This burning of the lights In tbs
daytime is frequently dons on new
cars that are being driven overland
from the factory. The drivers of
these machines do no night driving
nor do they do much starting and
stopping of the motor In the driving
hours. While running they naturally
are generating current and use this
means of using up some of It
Rain Frequently Cause
of Mean Short Circuits
When a car stops In a heavy rain
storm suspect the distributer, the top
of the coil or the plugs and wires of
being wet. Water Is an excellent con
ductor of electricity. A driving rain
storm will enter through ventilation
cuts In the hood and often manage
to produce a short circuit which stops
the car as effectually as If It were
robbed of Its spark plugs. Tbe only
remedy Is to wait for the affected
parts to dry or to locate them and dry
them off with rags. The best remedy
is prevention. Small covers of oil
cloth to fit over the coil and distribu
ter, similar in effect to tbe leather
hood which usually protects magnetos,
will keep out the fine water spray
which does the damsge and prevent
an annoying stop under uncomfort
able circumstances.
Great Penonaget
of the Bible
COMK special trait of character
J stands out unique la eve ry life.
Washington la remembered for his gen
eralshlp in directing affairs In the
formative period of our national life.
Lincoln la characterised m a, man of
anohnventlonal sincerity, a man who
souid have died tot the. troth. In tjie,
«eld of literature, Emerson will always
be spoken of as an. idealist, Robert
Browning as a thetst, add Tenbÿsdn lia
i deist In the biography of tbe Bible,
Peter is known as the rock àpoetieV
Paul as a missionary, and John as tbe
méditative disciple. In »the Old Tee-,
lament, Moses will be thought of pri
ant rily as the law. giver, and Joshua
die leader at whose command the sun
vas reported to have stood still. Da
rld was the poet and Solomon the
vise man. The character of Enoch la
interesting, for the reason that we
enow very IlMle about btm. Large
aortlons of history are associated with
die names of other Biblical characters,
but not so of Enoch. Where he was
who his what
fession or calling he pursued are un
known to us. All we know of this in
teresting character ia told In two sen
tences : "Enoch walked with God
snd he was not for God took him." la
the Old Testament statement, and the
following is the New Testament valu
ation of his life: "By faith Enoch waa
translated that he should not see
death, and was not found, because God
had translated him; for before hta
translation he had this testimony, that
he pleased God." These two sentences,
even though a very brief biography,
give us a good deal of Information. It
was no easy matter for Enoch to walk
with God. The nation was surrounded
with the pagan practices of those who
worshiped Idolatrous gods. With an
environment of this nature It took a
strong conviction of mind and deter
mination of heart to stand firm in his
belief. In spite of all the allurement#
of tbe surrounding paganism of his
day. Enoch walked with God. He was,
therefore, a strong man with firm and
unalterable convictions. He must also
have possessed a character sufficiently
strong and virile to compel him to act
true to those convictions and not pre
tend to believe one thing and act as
though he secretly believed another.
The story Is told of one who while
worshiping In a beautiful temple saw
I vision of the Savior. The worshiper
desired to remain in the temple and
continue Indefinitely In hla expression
of praise and worship. He remem
bered, however, that not very far away
from the temple beautiful there was
a large number of people who were
very poor and sorely In need of both
food and ahelter. While hesitating
whether to go and minister to those
poor people or remain at his wor
ship In the temple he seemed to nave
heard a voice saying to him; "Minis
ter to those In need, feed the hungry,
clothe tbe naked, visit those to prison."
He feared to go away from the tem
ple lest when he returned the vision
of the Savior would be no longer
of the no longer
there. At last he obeyed the voice
which bade him go. He went like
good Samaritan and did all he could
to alleviate the suffering of those In
need. When be returned to the tem
ple he was very confident the vision
be had seen would be gone. To his
great astonishment he saw the vision
of the Savior even more beautiful
than before. As he looked at the
vision he remarked: "And yon are
still here." "Yes," was the reply. "Hadst
thou remained I must have gone, be
cause thou didst go I have remained."
Enoch was a man who possessed a
deep faith and also a targe capacity
for service. Otherwise it conld never
have been said of him that "He
pleased God."
We are also told that he was trans
lated. While we do not know exactly
how this occurred. It certainly was a
direct evidence of Divine favor and In
dicative of how much God thought of
Did yon ever study the epitaphs upon
tombstones? Some of them are very
ridiculous and some are very serions.
One of these very ridiculous epitaphs
can be seen In a very old cemetery.
Upon a tombstone Is recorded the
name of the deceased, the date of his
birth and death, and, according to the
custom of many year* ago, tbe cause
of hts death waa also engraved upon
the atone, so that the entire Inscription
read like this; John Smith born -
died - met his death by haring
been kicked by a mule. Under this
inscription was engraved the word* ;
"Well done thou good and faithful
servant." While some are uninten
tionally rerp ridiculous, others are
very serious and beautiful,

CirU to Spintterhood
An old superstition of obscure ori
gin Is responsible for Imposing a se
vere handicap on Japanese girls who
are twenty years old this year. It is
said that they must all be so bad-tem
pered as to be unsuitable for wires.
This unlucky time occurs every 61
years, and although the superstition Is
waning there are still large numbers
of parents who will not aHow their
sons to marry girls under this cloud.
A number of this year's unlucky girls
have taken up professional work, in
the belief that they are doomed to re
main single.
To combat the superstition, effort*
are being made by a society organized
In Tokyo to help Its members select
their wives and husbands without par
ental help or Interference. In the past,
thousands of girls, fearing a lifetime
of loneliness, have committed suicide.
