Around the Garage Stove By ERWIN GREER '.crttfcnt Owr Colief* of Automotive Enyioeoriof, Lkicofo) i The famous cracker-barrel In the >iaer grocery store, which au ,-jors so love to write about, is no More. Tlie humble cracker has ,'een knighted “biscuit” and now resides in a shiny tin away up out of our reach. Instead, we turn to the garage stove and hold our meetings there to talk of automo biles In place of horses.) “Boys, look at that car steam- ] ing,” remarked the garage owner ; to the gang around the stove, point- : ing out through the window to a j car nosing its way through the heavy drifts of snow. “Yep! Frozen radiator, preb- i ably,” commented the farmer. “You garage fellers certainly do make a pile of money whenever we have a hard freeze. I’ve seen | seven cars pull in here this morn ing, either froze up or with cracked water iackets, or some thing.” • “And why shouldn’t we?” ex claimed the garage owner. “You boobs never take toe time to warm up your engine. You don’t seem to re® ,e that after a car has been standing twenty-four hour* the oil has drained back from the cylinder walls and bearing surfaces, and that tiie erankcase of oil, if cold, is sluggish and viscous, and that rac ing your engine is bound to bust something.” “Stop figuring out other folks’ trouble®, Bill.” laughed the village physician. “No doubt we do de serve 'them, still you can’t make the average man protect himself or his car In the winter time.” "And that is how you doctors and garage men manage to keep the wolf from the aoor, eh?” snorted the cattleman. “Pa, oh pa,” chirped up the ga rage owner’s youngster, who has been busily reading the newspaper, “what does it mean here by the ‘dead of winter’?” “It means, my boy,” saM the father, “the drivers who forgot to neglected to put chains on the rear wheels.” “Take time in warming up the engine these cold mornings. Re member there is nothing, to be gained by hurrying it. Don’t jump upon the accelerator and let your engine race like a Lewis gur for witn poor lubrication this method usually results in serious damage | and is bound to have a bad effect I if practiced rpsnilarlv. p' engine slowly for three minutes be fore putting it to work and you economize, not only in repair bills, but also 'n oil or gasoiiue. “Watch your radiator for leaks. It w’H naturally be filled /with antiL freezing liquid in winter and while a small leak in the system in summer would not be important, the present high price of non-freezing fluids should encourage you fellows to make a careful inovection ever so often and— Hie whoooo of the noon whistle broke in upon his lecture and the gang with one accord got up and went away to their homes—for it was dinner time. “D-nl’ growled the garage own er. “You just naturally can't tell those fools anything.
