GREAT FALLS, MONT. NARROW TREAD IS HIGH PRICED CAR . That Is Observation of Manufac-1 turer and He Points Out Reasons for View. Narrow treads on tires means break downs to the sidewalls for those who drive their machines oil country roads where it is impossible for the driver to keep out of the ruts, says the B. F. Goodrich Rubber Company. Side-walls were not constructed to withstand wear and tear, and were not intended to come in contact with the road surface. They are made of ai| ex tra high quality rubber, and their chief purpose is to lend bounce and resilience. Thousands of tires are destroyed pre maturely because country roads and lanes are used not only by the farmer, but as well, by the town and city motor ist. As tires roll along through a trough of sand and gravel the side-wall grinds away until the fabric carcass of the tire is either wholly or partially exposed, thus allowing water and other substances to enter the body of the tire to commence deterioration. Motorists are commencing to realize the increased service and added mileage in tires with broad tread surfaces. Republican Women of State to Attend Chicago Conference Helena, May 10.—Mrs. M. J.
