Self Sacrifice.
No man has ever sacrificed himself
in the common meaning of that phrase,
which is self sacrifice for another
alone. Men make daily sacrifice for
others, but it is for their own sake
first. They must content their own
spirit first. A man must feel better
for doing a duty than he would for
shirking it.
Take the case of the Berkeley Cas
tle, a British troopship crowded with
soldiers and then- wives and children.
There was room in the boats for the
women and children only. The colonel
lined up his regiment on the deck and
said, “It is our duty to die that they
may be saved.” There was no mur
mur, no protest. The boats carried
away the women and children. When
the death moment was come the colo
nel and his officers took their several
posts, the men stood at “present,” and
so, as on dress parade, with their flag
flying and the drums beating, they
went down, a sacrifice to duty for
duty’s sake. They were soldiers with
a soldier’s pride—a soldier's self re
spect. They had tp content a soldier’s
spirit.—Mark Twain.
Brush Your Tongue.
Brush your teeth. By all means
brush your teeth religiously and well,
but for pity’s sake brush your tongue
too. Wield your brush backward and
forward, under and over, to the north,
to the south, to the east and west,
scour it with fervor, for it is in truth
a tiny forest of dense foliage wherein
lurks the unseen enemy.
Every time you open your mouth a
whole regiment of little microbes
charge through the aperture and take
up quarters somewhere in the confines
of your chewing apparatus. Seek them
out and annihilate them before sleep
enfolds you, for, fortified with an enor
mous capacity for work, they rest not
neither do they weary, and you may
awaken in the morning to find whole
companies firmly intrenched in the
middle of your tongue. If you can't
conceive of your own particular organ
being so invaded take a microscope
and mirror and get busy.—Philadel
phia Ledger.

Oiling is Automatic, Positive in
Action and Requires Little Attention
The oil supply is held in the crankcase. From here a small gear
pump draws it through a fine mesh screen which separates any dirt
or foreign matter, and forces the oil first through a sight feed glass
in view of the driver, then into a series of troughs just beneath the
A Continuous Otl Bath
Small projections on the ends of the connecting rods dip into the
troughs and throw the oil up on the pistons and bearings. This
continuous dipping and splashing is done so rapidly that the oil is
broken up into a fine mist or spray which keeps every moving part
ip a constant bath of oil. Surplus oil drains back into the crankcase
where it is ready for recirculation.
Action of Revolving Indicator Always Clear
The oil sight feed indicator on the cowl dash is small and incon
spicuous, yet clearly shows the flow of oil. The oil turns a small
fan-bladed wheel. The operator can tell at a glance whether the
wheel is revolving or not, even if the glass is full of oil. In other
types, when the glass is fu"l the driver cannot tell, even in good
light, whether the oil is flowing or not.
Call at our garage and let us explain
these points more fully.

Credit Belongs to Labor,
If we rightly estimate things, what
in them is purely owing to nature and
what to labor, we shall find that nine
ty-nine parts of a hundred are w’holly
to be put on the account of the labor.
Source of Loneliness.
Loneliness is one of the bugbears of
mankind. With some people, it is a
constant source of unhappiness. They
make plans, sometimes exceedingly
complex, to keep it at bay. They think
that it lies outside. It really lies with
in their own consciousness.
