The -wise dealer will stock up early and be ready when the shortage of ears makes itself felt in the early summer." , The Jordan Jlotor Car company is doing its share to meet the emergency of the car shortage by speeding up production and increasing the capacity of the plant fifty per cent. TALKS OF REPTILES CIVILIZATION The aggressive automobile dealer who a year ago thought his time had come, is now reaping the benefits o the unfortunate circumstances which upset the industrial organization of the country and threatened to ruin his business. "It's an ill wind that blows no one good." says W. U. Riley, sales mana ger of the Jordan Motor Car company. "The working class of people are mak ing more money than they ever made before, while the farmer, with a pro duction of $26,50(1,000,000, nearly seven billion more than the production of 1916. s deriving about 100 per cent profit. "Such conditions, of course, have brought about a marked change in the location of ready money. The man who formerly had a great deal and bought many liberty bonds, is now paying a higher discount and is pay ing more for the luxuries that he formerly enjoyed and has less to spend for them. But his place is being taken by the farmer and the worker who are benefiting by the large expen dltures of money by the government, and spending their surplus tor tne lux uries formerly denied them. "Hence, a new and virgin class of buyers has emerged from the unusual conditions of war times. At first the dealer was a bit confused because the people who formerly had the money to buy hesitated, and the new class of buyers had not yet made itself felt. "There is nothing more inspiring to the dealer than the opening up of a new field for selling. The trading sit uation is rapidly improving, not only for this reason but because the man- . . 1 fYI7XTTUCS OTITTTTiTl DEPARTMENT -P - 1. I find tharthe Insulation on the coils of my Ford magneto is broken in places, but the coils are not in contact with metal. 'Will the coils short circuit through the oil in the transmission case, or is the oil sufficient of a non conductor to prevent this? 2. If coils must be insulated what is the best material to use? Would or dinary insulating tape withstand the hot oil? . S. How often would a 40 ampere storage battery need recharging, using It for headlights only with say 21 can diepower tungsten lamps? C. L.

Either get new coils in place of the bad ones, or cover the bad spots with a thick coating of heavy shellac.

Can I use an ordinary farm wagon for a trailer, or do you think I better buy one of the regular trailers I see advertised? The roads out my way are not any too good. Paterson. The usual trouble with employing farm wagons as trailers is that the wheels go to pieces at even moderate speed for an automobile. Likewise they do not pull as easily as a regular trailer with ball bearing equipment. If you do not intend to drive at speed the wagon-trailer may work out all right I would not cut off the tongue, as length here helps the motor pull the extra load. "If there had been automobiles in Saint Patrick's time, it would not have been necessary for him to drive the snakes from Ireland they would have left of their own accord," Eays an of ficial of the Dort Motor Car company. "The motor car has spread civiliza tion to all corners of the earth. It has made remote regions accessible, cleared wildernesses, extended cities, and built villages. Creatures of the swamp and forest have had to move onto make way for good roads, new homes, gar dens, and fruit trees. "It is now pretty generally acknowl edged that the perfection of the auto mobile introduced a new standard of action. The importance of a mile de pends upon how quickly it can be tra versed. It has been made compara tively unimportant by the automobile. "And so the great work of expansion and development goes on, increasing as the number of automobiles in creases. Real estate has multiplied in value to many times the amount of money invested in motor cars, since motor cars came. "These things the automobile did for us in normal times. We are now learn ing what it means to us in war times when the utmost efficiency is essential, and the lack of it a crime. Men now find extra burdens thrust upon them. More must be done. It is imperative. "It is a matter of primary mathe matics to figure out the difference be tween the productive time of one man who uses a car and one man who does not. It is then a case of mere multi plication to arrive at the collective time-saving value of the some three million cars now in service in America." ON SPARK PLUGS Will you kindly settle a friendly wager. I say that there are more than 500,000 motor trucks in America. My friend insists that there are not even 250,000. Which of us is right? R. De M. T. Neither of you. The latest figures compiled by the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce show that there are 435,000 motor trucks now in UEe in this country.

In such cases the car owner having cleaned his plugs and finding the trouble still existent, assigns its source to some other part of the svs- tem.

Frankly, I do not believe that any of tnese additions to the gasoline will d what the average maker claims.

It meets every taste for the most exact in style pleasing and luxurious in all its appointments, yet its eight power ful cylinders of energy consume only one gallon of gasoline for approximately every eighteen miles it travels. .

We Have Put Our Own Money Into It and Have Brought the Invention to a State of Perfection Where It Is Now Ready to Present to the Large Manufacturers in the East What We Now Have Xo gears to shift no gears to strip. A transmission that handles a ear from a standstill to the highest speed, without shift, shock or strain. A transmission that is. simple, strong and dependable no delicate parts; no fomplieated adjustments. A transmission that can be placed in any automobile, truck, railway gasoline motor car, motor boat, mine hoist, or any gasoline power driven machinery. A transmission that has been approved by some of the best engineers in America. It has been tested under every conceivable condition. A transmission that has a field many times greater than hundreds of success ful inventions that have been brought into existence in the last few years, and its possibilities from a commercial standpoint are enhanced accordingly. This company is the owner of the U. S. patents covering the Jessen Hydraulic Transmission. This patent has been assigned to this corporation by the orig inal owners. A transmission that accomplishes its purpose far better than any now in use, and instead of adding complication, simplifies instea'd of lessening the effec tive life of the motor, prolongs it. Its cost to manufacture is considerably less, because it is lighter and less intricate than the present day transmission. NOTHING TO WATCH BUT THE ROAD What We Expect to Do To build several transmissions and distribute them among motor car builders, truck manufacturers, etc., with instructions to test them in every possible manner until satisfied they are better than we claim. The many inquiries ve have received from important manufacturers not alone in the automobile industry, but in many others, have convinced us that most favorable contracts await us when we are ready to accept them. We expect to call on these people and furnish them .each with a Jessen Hydraulic Transmission, allowing it to prove its wonderful' possibilities and great su periority. We will license manufacture rs to build and sell on a royalty basis. We expect to sell only sufficient stock to carry out the above plan. We only need a few thousand dollars'. Not one cent of money will be made by the of ficers of the company through the sale of stock. We have gone into this proposition in good faith, backing our judgment with our time and money. This is not a stock jobbing proposition. We win when this Transmission is a commercial success, and our chances are exactly equal to those of you who now purchase stock. 4 The par value of this stole is $10.00 per share. We are offering a small block at $5.00. The price will be advanced from time to time. It's worthy of your investigation.
