CARLISLE TIRES
INGENIOUSLY MADE
. ; I
Salesmen IVho Go Tlirough
Andovcr Factory Come Away
Moat Enthusiastic.
Ed Demar, .the well known local dis
tributer of Carlisle Cord Tires on Fifty
tight -street near Broadway, Is making
Weekly trips to the factory at Andover,
Mass., and taking, with "him each time
(nembera of his eetrlng force, wht are
shown through the factory and made
acquainted first hand with the manu
facturing methods Used In turning out'
the product they sell, Invariably the
men come lioWa more enthusiastic than -ever
over the tiro.
Carlisle Cords are' so Interestingly
made that a short description of what
pne of these men saw at the factory ls
riven hero. This .salesman says:
"Carlisle Cords are made of rope,
Iturdy strong strands-of rope. And that
s what I tireusaw; spoold of rope -ach
spool being carefully tested. A
pleco ten feet long Is take.n from each
ipooL It Is ..put In. fif machine to deter
mine Its breaking1 point The particular
piece we tested broke at ZSi pousds.
tVhen a strand breaks below 2il0 pounds
Ihe entire epool Is cast aside and not
nsed. In other words this particular
itrand cf rope' would hold a man weigh
ng 3S0 pounds, siitl'ng In a chair weigh
ng forty pounds. Then J saw the
altlal process of embedding rich strand
if rope in rubber
In Carlisle Cords no t.W. rtrands
touch. Each strand Is' emtdded en
tirely In rubber. This meais the ab
fence of friction which natuiaily means
longer life for the carcass ana the entire
lirp. Carlisle Cords are cool at 60 miles
n hour. No sand blisters; no thread
teparatlon. no blowouts, tliit makes uo
Ihe Carlisle Cord tire.
"I then saw the carefuhss used In '
rueasuriiig the strong piano lre used In
Itralght side bead tires and then the
Weird machines upon which expert cord
tire builders contract the two ply Car
lisle Cord carcass only two ply of
rope that forms the foMdatlon of the

head.
"Each step In building Is carefull In
pected, ko that a cord curcasa "that
shows signs of Infection ' detected and
thrown uway. Then cane the breaker
trip and reenforclng of -he sidewalks.
While this Is being done the carcass lnr
a pressure of n regular tiro exerted upon
It which would bring out any defect
"Then came.the tread and the curing
process. In curing Carlisle Cords nn
Inner tube lu spoiled with each tiro. No
air bags are uted but regular, high grade
Inner tubes properly Inflated. The fa

It represents the most wonderful process

To do justice to this construct n the
p-ocess must be seen. I Was never

Danger With Pollco lforce Basy

Automobile owners must be particu
larly watchful of their cars during the.
present Industrial inrest, because the
possibilities of theft are bound to grow
stronger, C. II Larson of the Oldsmoblle
Company points out
"Tho numerical strength of tho police
force can vary only slightly from week
to week," Mr, Larson says, "and when a
great labor trouble develops a large pro
portion of the police has to be shitted
to this special duty. Tho result Is that
little attention can bo paid to. routine
matters. It tho owner Is not especially
careful about where ho- leaves his ma

becomes almost absurdly simple,

an effective lock device be wary about
