Thoro nro many dealer on Hroadway who uso standard makes of tlrea ns de eoya to open the way for the sale of Imitation tlrea. Theie men find ready access to automobile owners' pocket- books by dealing with dishonest chauf feurs. Tho offhand manner In which hun dreds of automobllo owners order their chauffeurs to huy tires for them opens tho way for collusion between the chauf feur and certain tire dealers, and this means the loss of a tremendous sum of money each year to business men who In other ways are sensible about ex penditures. There Is not one of them who would turn to a clerk In the ofllce and ask Mm t6 go out and buy for him a ftEO watch. And yet any one of them wtU ask John or Jim or Jack to buy a set of tires costing- about the same amount and never look Into the trans action themselves. There nre tires sold In this city which ar plainly known In the trado as Vhauffeurs" tires," I. e., tires which ore old to chsuffcurs only, nnd every time one of them Is sold a new crooked deal. In which the "boss" suffers, has bsen recorded. Dishonest chauffeurs and dealers havo reached a perfect under standing on the ways and means of rob bing the "boss" without his knowledge. A dealer who wants to 1 dishonest has a very easy time of It. He first lajs In a slock of standard advertised tires and In the end Interests a chauffeur In ths special make of poorer tiro on which he can give the latter a good commission. It works alone the following lines: The list price of an aveinRu 37x5 non-sklil tire I I43.S0. The price to the dealer Is $3" J5, and the net prtcfi with n ensh discount Is $35, S7. So the profit to the dealer on such a tire Is J7.93 If he sells that tire at the regular coiimiincr.V list pTlc. Now when the dishonest dealer wants to Interest tho dishonest chauffeur In his "special tire" he tlrst cuts the price of the standard make to say 137.75, thereby taking a protlt of only I1.8S. Naturally this price Is attractive to tho chauffeur and Interests him In the dealer, vrho later confides that he has another tire of the same size selling for S53.S5 on which he can give lilin 10 or 11 per cent, commission If he could get the "boss" to buy It. Of course he shows the chauffeur n fictitious list of prices. Now, the proposition of the more ex pensive tire is bad on the very face of it, becauso nobody can make any better tires than the standard compnnlex are making, and nny price far above those quoted by them Is an Inflated and tils honest price. The 10 or 15 per cent, com mis ilon Jutt suits the chauffeur, how ever, nnd he sees to It that all the stand ard tires on his car go to pieces quickly through rough usage ho ho can tell the "txm" what poor service they are giving and got permission to buy "something better." The boss Is "easy" and has lots of money, nnd why shouldn't a poor chauffeur "get something on the side"? Somebody reading this story has prob ably said to himself: "Well, my chauf feur li honest, so this doesn't concern me." Do you buy your tires personally? If you don't It would be well for you not to be too Bure about your chauffeur. Make a few quiet llttlo Investigations. Then when you catch him get a new man and have It understood that you are going to do all the tire buying your self. If you haven't time to Investigate the matter yourself and yet want to know the truth Just drive up to the head quarters of any standard tire concern and an expert tire man will tell you the truth about It immediately. It will re quire only a glance at tho tires. A "chauffeur's tire" Is a crooked tire, and It Is In the tlrn rogues' gallery so that It may be readily Identified. The troublo with many car owners Is that they can't figure out how a chauf feur can trick them, nnd therefore they believe that what he does must be all right. Owners nre deceived and robbed every day as they sit in their cars out side the btores in which their chauffeurs are making purchases for them. Hiding down nroadway the chauffeur will say: "I think we ought to get six new tubes." Ths owner Is perfectly ngreeable, so the I chauffeur pulls up In front of "his store" and goes In for the tubes. He soon re turns with six boxes and places them I nesiue ine owner to show him that, the purchase had been made. In a short time the owner gets a bill for them, which the chauffeur O. K.'s and the owner pays. Now the question Is. did the owner ever get his six tubes, und the answer Is that he did not. He paid for six, mil ne only got two. The chauffeur returned four of them to the store and split "fifty-fifty" with the dealer the difference between the price of two tubes and the price of six tubes. Probably n little later there Is need for one of the hew tubes, and when the chauffeur promptly produces one the owner thinks everything Is all right nnd then promptly forgets about tho six tube transaction and never speaks of It again. Many chauffeurs from the first day of Ihelr employment plan to systematically .rob their employers by a special Inside arrangement with dishonest dealers. In some Instances the thing Is carried to amaxlng extremes. The writer knows of an Instance that hardly seems possible, but Is nevertheless a fact. A chauffeur walked Into a certain store on Hroadway not long ago and said to the proprietor "How much have I got coming to me this month?" The latter's reply wus, "Tou haven't anything coming to you because you haven't nought nnything." Then, with a surprised look, the chauf feur said, "Give me one of your billheads nnd I'll some have something coming to Ine. Then he made out a list of fictitious purchases costing In ll nenrly $97. He showed the list to the proprietor and said. "Tou know that I bought all this stuff here, don't your The latter Winked and said "Yes." A "flfty-fl'ty" pHt was promptly arranged. Now, Mr. Motorist, don't you think It behooves you to buy your own tlrea and Ireneral supplies? Dishonest dealers can not fool you If you ask for standard ad Vcrtlsed goods. And you can depend upon It that the goods of standard com panies will live up to their names and give you your moneys worth. When It tomes to tires you will flnd that the well known makes do not contain coin missions for chauffeurs, but only a-ener. bus mileage for you.

Mich. principal dtlaa Self-starting devices for automobiles have practically reached a stage of per fection, but It has remained for the Prest- O-Llte Company, makers of the Prest-O-Llte storage battery and gas tank, to develop and place on the market tho first "self-stopper." This latest automobile convenience Is a vacuum brnko which enables the mo torist to bring- his car to a gradual stop with case and smoothness or to stop It Instantly with a minimum of personal effort. The effort necessary, In fact, I about the same as Is required when operating the ordinary hand or foot ac celerator or sounding the horn. The driver Is relieved of all physical strain, an advantage which will appeal to all motorists who have experienced the mus cular tension of driving a heavy car down a long, steep grade. It Is claimed that the vacuum brake will be a boon to women drivers, many of whom haven't the physical strength to uso the foot brake and firing the car to a sudden stop. With the vacuum brake "applying the brake" Is Just om easy as turning on a lighting switch. The name of the new Prest-O-Llte "self-stopper" Is the Prest-O-Vacuum Ilrake. It Is a device of few parts and can be used on any mako or model of car, large or small, having the ordinary foot brake. There Is some similarity In Its action and that of the air brake s stems on present day railway trains, because both employ the same sort of cylinder and piston, connected to the brnko rods. Hut there Is this Important dllTtrence, that the railway brake operates by the force of compresstd air, while the vacuum brake operates wholly by the normal suction of tho ehglne, employing no air cumpresser nnd no air storage tank. With even less petsonal effort than the englnter of a railway locomotive uses to bring the tremendous weight of his train to n well timed stop, the driver f a motor car may, by gentle pressure of linger or foot, bring lils machine to a standstill In an Instant by locking the whecU, If necessary. Or he may slow It up gradually, depgidlng alto gether on drlvjng conditions. The opera lion Is so simple that the slightest pres sute gives the driver alisolute control of the car nt nil time whether In irowded traffic, where stops Inve to lm made suddenly and with certainty, or out on the open road, wliere It Is only necessary to slow up temporarily for humps or crossings. The new brake operates on the same general principle as tho vacuum gaso lene feed now widely used on automo biles, n device which makes It possible to draw- gasolene from one tank to an other located at a higher level. The entire outfit consists of a small special cjllnder mounted on the frame or any convenient cross member of the chassis, and n copper tubing connection to the intake manifold of the engine. In which is located a simple valve, con trolled by a lever or button convenient to the hand or foot. Inside the special cylinder Is a plunger or piston which Is connected to the brake rods already on the oar. When hand control Is provided the lever Is located on the steering column md Is operated In much the same way that the spark lever on hand throttle Is advanced or retarded. When foot control Is prlvlded a button similar to the foot accelerator Is located on the toe board. The button, or lever, as the case may be. is connected directly to the valve When the valve Is open the vacuum which always exists In the intake mani fold when the engine Is running txerts a powerful pull or suction In the plunger -a pull equivalent to 10 pounds to the square Inch, or 1,000 pounds braking power at the rear wheels, When the lirake Is not In use. In other words when the valve Is closed, the suction censes and the plunger Is pulled back In place by a spring. Of couise when the en gine Is not running the foot brake Is not needed and the vacuum brake Is not In operation. For this reason the hand or emergency brake Is still needed to ho.il the car In position when left Idle. The Prest-O-Vacuum Ilrake operates so that a partial or complete vacuum l created Instantly, ns desired, even nn very slow engine speed, Simply turn ing the engine over by hand or spinning it siowiy uy means or the self-starter is sutllclcnt to give full braking power at the rear wheels. Ily providing a much more powerful braking force thnn is found In the leg or arm of the driver. It. I claimed, a mere positive brake application is In. surcd and that even when the brakes are somewhat out of adjustment to an extent which would give "poor brakes" when applied by the foot presouru tiie nbundnnce of power available will set the brakes effectively. It frequently happens that the brake In one wheel requires more power to apply than In tho other wheel: the vacuum brake, through ample power, will apply them both. If desired the conventional foot brake pedal can he retained. At present the device Is being offered to motor car makers only, but the Prest-O-Llte Company plans later on to olTer It ns well to the general public, with suitable braces for attachment to any car, old or new. bearings Service COMFAIW WSiWWMSMKilU Hero Is a new type of Maxwell car to meet the demands of the speed-loving puuiic.
