Lt Fleets of motor trucks in service d n along the Atlantic seaboard have of d fered timely relief to many large man I ufacturing companies who found it eImpossible to secure materials or make a their regular deliveries owing to the e shortage of freight cars and the gen eral terminal congestion caused by the submarine menace. In Philadelphia a good share of this business has been bandled by Stedman e Bent, hauling contractor. who owns a fleet Of sixty-six large motor trucks and ijao is prepared to cotract for haul* of any length. An Interesting example of how emer I gencles of this kind have been met Is I the recent hauling of several large i copper chemical stills for the Cvtro Chemical Company. of Maywood. N. J.1 - The stilts. which were q feet hlei.l 7 feet In diameter and weigh nearly 5.000 1 pounds each, were built by the Joseph B. Kapperman & Sons Company, of Philadelphia. Owing to the steadily advancing price in chemicals the Cytro Company ordered work on their con struction rushed. but when they were ready for delivery no freight cars could be secured in which to' shlp them. Two of these huge tanks were loaded on one of Mr. Bent's five-ton motor trucks and hauled to the Cytro plant in less than twelve hours. About the same time a call was re ceived from the General Chemical Company, of Camden. N. J. This con cern bad a large shipment of p!crlc acid which It wished delivered to a customer in Easton. Pa., sixty miles away. Beause this acid is an ingre dient in a high explosive, the railroads refused to carry it and the freight cars for shioment were not available even had they been willing to accept It for transit. Mr. Bent accepted the con tract and a fleet of his motor trucks hauled the acid to Easton in ten hours without experiencing a mishap of any kind. The Congoleum Company, of Marcus Hook. Pa.. well-known rug manufac turer. evaded the railroad tie-up by centracting with Mr. Bent to use his m0ebinse to haul long and heavy rolls of felt paper from Philadelphia to the factory, a distanct of approximately thirty miles. The company was so well pleased with the work of the mo tor trucks that t has entered into a contract with Mr. Bent to haul all this paper for a period of a year. IN railroad shipments the ends of the paper rolls were frequently damaged, but the motor truks delivered them in perfect condition, One machine hauis about 2.000 tons of paper a month, averaging two round tripe be tween Philadelphia and the mill In ten A short time ago the Philadelphia ITspestry Company, located at North Wale. Pa.. purchased a new factory In Frankfort, Silty miles away. The froben of mnoving the large stock of costly macner*y was a serious one because tiere was no direct railroad communtennion and the plat was sev-t eral miles distant from the nearest station. The cost of packing was an VISE )MSALL'S p.3 BROS.

The other day I saw a man put 7 cents' worth of water hoes on a car for 75 cents. including the labor. 1% was bidding for business, but at a los. If the osesion An a-ds bid at oos. but the quality of workmanship should be the true basis. Business may be secured by the Chieago repairman who did a S1W Job for 83L He was ve)y Jubilant over the amount of work sent to him by hin customer, who recoin mended him en account of his making light charge. Thee nqw oustomeser will certainly expect the ane treat ment, epd If they get it the' absence of profit on their work will soon put the repairman out of businems. How many concerns build a busines. over the bargain counter? The per cant of profit over the entire cast for the cut-rate business man must be as much in proportion to the amount of business done as In the house which doe, not do a cut-price businegs. Hon est and right work and material for a legitimate profit to the winning com bination.

The Bent motor truck railroad moved all the machilery and other furnish ings of the plant in a single. day and it all arrived at the Frankfort factory in perfect condition, despite the fact that It was covered only wih sheets of heavy canvas. Offidials of the com pnny declared that this speed in mov ing saved It thousands of dollar. Another striking example of bow the railroad blockade was broken with motor tirucks is the transportation of a stock of 80t,00 .wort of imported Turkish rtfgsefrom Philadelphia to New York. Mr.. Bent asserts that the rugs were loaded into an opep muachine said taken to a Broadway sko. a-distance of ninety-6ix milee. I than ten hours. TMst charge for this service is 75 enis per 100 pgends. . The rugs, which were ownebby the firm of Davis & Nshikian. ent rug imWbrterA.h bee Sh :,dlpl foI qg CO~W Pup" hen the exhibition closed the merchants desired to send them back to Nevw York as soon as posible The mot-.r tru -k route was decided upon after the railroad officials had declared th mn ives unable to accept the rugs for shipment. The importers sad thawt every day the rugs were in the warehouse meant hundreds ol dollars to them in lost sales. The speed and dependability with which the valuable rugs were hauled from Philadelphia to New York at tracted widespread attention among the business men In both citfex. and a few days later a representative of a foreign government offered Mr. Bent a contract to haiu fi(tegn tons of stockings from a Philadelphia stock Ing factory to the ocean piers in Man hattan. The steaner was scheduled to sail the next day at noon. The stockings were loaded on three motor trucks at 5 O'ciock in the evening and unloaded on the dock in New. York early the following morning. The war abroad and the prepared ness plans of the United States gov ernment brought large contracts for Dunitions to the Du Pont Powder Com pany and caused the town of Penn's Grove. Pa.. where the plant is located. to triple its population almoet over might. The newcomier arrived so fast that the town butcher was unable to keep them supplied with ment. Final y a oommittee was appointed to search for a new butcher and to induce him to move to Penn's Grove. Such a man was found in South Philadelphia. for ty-flve mile1 from the mills, but then tame the problem of moving his large Itock of meats. ehofling blocks, saws, !efrigerator bins. chopping machines, >lice equipment and , other firnish ngA. ShIpnpents by freight were at nost at a standstiU. A conference with Mr. Bent ended the trouble. The 'ollowing evening a fleet of hi motor rucks moved the butcher and all his ielongingm.

Fresh bread at any and, all times for American soldiers will be possi ble. if the War Department approves and adopts the portable automatic bread-making machine, that is now being demnstrated at the Preeldlo at San Francisco, and determines upon their installation. The bread maker Ia the Invention of James Girfey. and Its adaptation to the motor truck has been brought about by Ralph Hamlin. Bread that in freh and highly pal stable is very much desired by sot dier'. but at the present thu.s there is no way to keep them suppled with it when at the front. Usually the bak ery ir far In the rear. or there is no fresh bread At all. But with such a machine as Grrvey has designee. mounted on a motor ftuek chassis, it ls bheYea vgesible to overeoe th* d1fitY So the vehicle is #dl able to-keep *p with' any other- pirt'of the tranoport. and the bread producing m)- is sufficient to supply any need quiekly. It is claimed that the Garvey mo tor bread-making machine Is the only unit comhination in existence that will completely make a loaf of bread, per forming all the functions customary to hand work. It mixes the dough. molds any shape desire, and divides It Into loaves of predetermined weight. Whatever adjustments. are necessary to change weights and molds ere made by a hand-wheel control. The . bread ingredients Are put Into an au tomatic mixer and at thle proper time are discharged into' troughs and al lowed to raise. When properly aged. the dough is fed into an automatic divider and molder, and is kneaded a It passes through on chain op etated belt conveyers. The capacity of the output is be tween 3.000 and 6.000 loaves, of any I size weight fnd shares desired. a hour. With five men employed, It will do the same work that now re quires 112 men in the army. , In ad dition, the dough is handled In a san itary manner, the finished loaves be Ing discharged into baking pans ready t for the oven. The outfit weighs three tons and i mounted on a 21-2-ton motor truck casis. The body measures 71-2 by 2 feet, with a 6-foot drop extension In the rear. 9 L4 inches below the other part of the' body. The rear end is lower so that the bread can be panned at standing height. There is the baker's cabinet and platform work-bench, which folds up, forming me side of the body, when in transit. There is a top over the entire out it, and, when met up for operation. the machine is covered by a canvas Lent 24 feet wide and 2 feet long.

The pedal doe not seem to give at all. except by contant Sf. fort, when it finally gSeo down. Th% trouble seems to be intermltent, bui occurs, as previously noted, .in cold weather. Is the trouble with the generator?-Buick. , The trouble hardly is in the gener. ator. I believe that the real cause of the condition Is lack of lubrication of the overrunning starter clutch or the isse of too thick a lubricant in the clutch. This clutch is behind the starting Motor shaft and IS rather in accessible, but provIsion Is mae for oiling it, ImprOper lining up of the starter gears might cause the trouble, but I hardly think that this is so in the present case. Will too much tire chalk used in a casing Injure the tire in any way' Also are oversize tires better than the regular sise?-Puncture. Too much tire tale is apt to in fuse the inner tube. The excess forms in lumps which cause excessive wear. The oversize tire itself is made if the same materials as the regu lar but the larger volume of air and greater amount of material makes the oversize wear longer, on the av. rage car. Another advantage of the wversize is that with the Same load as the regular size the pressure can bereduced little-fid t'ius the 'd" Ag qualities are increased. Is the thermostat and the radiator shutter a good thing for the car? [t appears to do the work. Where ;an I get one?-Von. A thermostat In the cooling system a an excellent thing because it tends o maintain the engine at a constant emperature. When a thermo 'tat and radiator Mktinr are used wetter results are had because then moth air and water are under con rol. I do not know where you can ret a shutter for your car because t uses a very large radiator. A hermostat may be bought from the Fulton Company. Knoxville, Tenn., r the Motor Cooling System Corm.
