WALKER X Clarence Sutcliffe of Aurora, III., though only twelve yeais vi ae, con structed his own automobile from pats of old machinery and a mot-r and some gas pipe and gocart carriage wheels. The boy, who is shown driving his car with a tender attached, is of mechanical turn of mind. The little auto will pull twice its own weight. on dry pavement with the brakes in perfect condition. Traveling at ten miles an. hour, a car may be stopped in less than Its own length or approx imately nine and one-half feet. Trav eling 20 miles an hour, or twice as fast, the distance ; required to stop is four times as" great or approxi mately 38 feet. Traveling 30 miles an hour, the shortest distance in which it is possible to stop Is not three times as much as ten miles, but nine times as much, or a trifle over 85 feet. This means that the distance in which we can stop increases as the square of the speed at which we are traveling. These distances represent an emer gency stop under ideal braking condi tions and If the streets are wet or slimy, these distances must be- multi plied many times. Therefore, again the writer says BE CAREFUL. KEEP BRAKES li! CONDITION Expert Advises Inspection of AU Apparatus at Least Once a Month.

Assistant T.Tanejer Whenever Possible, Sliding the Wheel When Stopping Car Should Be Avoided Lubrication of High Importance. The state laws of Ohio and many other states require that the brakes and mechanism of every car driven on the public highways shall be in good working order. The reason for this is obvious and should bo remembered at all times by everyone who drives a car. The proper adjustment of the brakes in order to make them work efficiently at all times requires experience and skill. If the brake bands are adjusted a little too tight or close, they will then drag, and besides using an excess ive amount of gasoline to drive . the car, will sometimes become hot enough to burn out the lining and In rare cases set the car on fire. If the bands are a little too loose then the brake pedal will go clear against the floor board before produc ing the proper braking effect. If one brake band be a little tighter than the other, most of the braking effect Is on the wheel with the tighter band, which means that this wheel will stop spin ning and thus slide the tire with but little braking effect on the other wheel. This means, first, the spoiling of the tire in a few hundred miles of service, and, second, very poor brak ing or retarding effect. t Therefore, it is quite necessary that each one of the two sets of brakes on a car should be so adjusted that it Is possible to slide both wheels with the action of either set of brakes without the aid of the other. At the same time, the wheels should be per fectly free to turn when the brake Is not in use. : Ordinarily when stopping the car, we do not wish to slide the wheels, as this places unnecessary stress on the brakes . and braking mechanism and also pulls or tears a lot of rubber off or the tread of the tires which are slld- f T1 or Another reason Is that a car will not stop so quickly with the wheels sliding as when the brakes are applied just hard enough to permit. them to turn. All of the brake mechanism, such as the bands, -pins, yokes and rods, should be inspected regularly at least once a month to. see whether they are becoming worn enough to be weakened. ' Many serious accidents have been caused by a brake rod, yoke or pin breaking at a critical moment when the brake was applied suddenly and a little harder than usual, writes an auto expert, In the Cleveland Plain Dealer. It may be true that the reserve brake, or emergency brake, as It is more often called, was at the time in perfect working condition, but the time required to get' this emergency brake Into action after the other had given away was too great to prevent a crash. There are usually several places on the brake mechanism which require periodical oiling and lubricating, and the driver who conscientiously takes care of this lubrication and checking of the parts to see whether they are worn, Is one at least who goes a long way towards the prevention of acci dents and the saving of human life. A fact which very few people real ize, perhaps, Is the distance covered by a vehicle in one second of time when going at, say, 30 miles an hour. By a little figuring with a pencil and paper, you wilL find that when going 30 miles an hour, the car is moving a distance of 44 feet in every second. When we think this over and con sider that so many drivers travel at this rate of speed, we wonder that there""are hot "more accidents, and we can easily agree with the police de partment andthe safety council in try ing in every way possible to keep the speed down within the legal limit. Another point which is interesting to all -drivers is the space required to stop a car traveling at; various speeds 5! i . You Auto Know ! ? That one of the most usual places for wear on a car is at the steering knuckles, which are always under a heavy strain. Comparatively few car owners realize that the knuckles need a constant supply of heavy grease in order to prevent un due wear, and for this reason it is the part of wisdom to see that the proper lubricant Is ap plied: either through screwing down the grease cups or using the grease gun. A good rule to follow In this respect Is to grease the knuckles whenever it is put in the car or, at least, whenever the oil is changed. Worn steering knuckles are also one of the infallible signs of an over-used car and, In pur- chasing a second-hand machine, i these should be inspected In or- der to see whether the car has i been used or abused. In this s respect, the knuckles, together a m with several otner parucmar parts, are regarded as the "teeth" of the automobile, for l an examination, of. these, will disclose the real age of the car not the length of time which has elapsed since its original purchase or even the number of miles it has been driven, but the care It has received. ( by the "Wheeler Syndicate, Inc.) i FIRE UNDER ASHES A GREAT many uncharitahle, crlti cal people run down the unfor tunate man .or woman, standing on the brink at discouragement and fail ure, without looking for the real cause. It may be ill health, it may be shock from the loss of a loved- one, it may be misfortune, which in spite of ut most vigilance comes to all of us; or It may be inaptitude or inability, but whatever the cause, let us be patient and considerate before we launch austere criticism and throw up our hands in condemnation. If our hearts are right, and it is assumed they are, let us In a humane spirit seek to remove the ashes from the live coals beneath, and fan them Into a hopeful blaze. Whatever may be the prevailing opinion for or against such a proced ure, this is the noble way, almost cer tain to give encouragement to the dis heartened and lift them up in a new world where Hope lives eternally and Truth and Mercy smile kindly, even when the storms beat hardest and the days are darkest. If we will look deeply Into de spairing hearts we will find that un der the ashes of sorrow there are always coals of Hvmg-fiTe, which kindness, sympathy a nd-xssrlSrfi help fulness can fan. into a glorious- flame. Even in the souls of.iUie-Jiiost dis reputable and hardenefUckiners , there Is ever burning an Immortal spark of the heavenly fire hidden somewhere beneath the slumbering gray ashes, waiting to be rescued. And In spite of the frowns of the world, In spite of courts and prisons, in spite of bereavement, of poverty, of riches, or pomp, pride or envy, this spark survives all through our earthly existence, down to the final moment when life itself despairingly flares up and goes out, done with its temporal house of clay. The question may then come to us as to whether we have played our part as becomes true men and women. and likewise whether the spark in our own souls has not been hidden by the ashes which we, through neglect of others, have permitted to cover and darken It. It Is so easy for sympathies and love to go blind from disuse that unless we keep them ever burning in our own hearts they will never blaze suffi ciently to warm and cheer the hearts of others, lost on the way and too proud or weak to call for help.

They usually wait until the garage man calls attention to the injury done by breakage. As a matter of safety to the car and passengers, as w ell as to save the stor age battery from discharging, a short circuit In the electric system should be repaired as soon as possible.

Most of us suffer from a feeling of forebod ing even on a clear day, when a sloud comes between us and thej distant fire that lights and warms the world. We are similarly sensitive to all the little troubles of our lives to anything that disturbs our regularly ordered ex istence. . A temporary Illness a suspicion that there are some kind of business break ers ahead these things plunge us in to gloom. And we, in our turn, pass the gloom along. For our friends seeing the black and foreboding faces that we wear, grow gloomy, too. One sullen-faced man in an office will sometimes spoil the day for the entire working force. One croaker, on board a ship iq a storm may send the whole passenger list into something very like a panic. Nobody loves a gloomy man, but ev erybody listens to him, and looks at him. The prophet of evil is never without an audience. Poe, in his remarkable poem shows how the raven, by croaking the word "Nevermore" was able to drive a luck less poet almost to the verge of insan- ity. Continual gloom is not good for the soul, any more than continual shadow would be good for the green and blos soming things upon the surface of the earth. We all need sunshine, and a great deal of it. , It Is not necessary to go about con tinually telling people how happy we are, like Pollyanna, but we can at least keep our troubles to ourself, and not look a3 If we were limping along toward the grave or the gallows. xne gloomy, man or woman in a home destroys the happiness of an en tire family, and usually drives the chil dren out on the streets, where at least there Is air and sunshine, and maybe now and then a hurdy gurdy. The reason the Jazz is popular, that the comic supplement sells by the mil lion copies, and that the comedian gets a thousand dollars a week, is because we will do anything to get rid of gloom.
