BUMPING GARAGE DOOR PREVENTED Dented and Disfigured Fenders Telt Where Owner Usually Keeps His Automobile. GUARD RAILS WILL PROTECT Piece of Strong Piping Attached at Each Corner Serves to Push Car From Either Sid* of Door, i®p Thus Preventing Harm. Very often you can Identify the fellow who keeps his automobile in his own garage by the condition of the fenders of his automobile. They are bent down somewhat, or dented, and otherwise disfigured, because in driving in or backing out of his garage he has a habit of misjudging the'dis tance between the fender and the door jamb, and before he can stop moving, the fender has been made to suffer. Where the doorway is none too wide —a natural condition with the city man's garage, since usually he cannot Slanting Guides at the Garage Door Will Protect the Fenders From Injury. make It any larger than necessary to barely squeeze the car in—It is a good idea to Install guard rails In the cor ners of the door opening or little con crete or wooden guiding-blocks. If a piece of husky piping Is attached at each ccfrner It will serve as a guard against which the tire will strike if the automobile is run too close to the doorway. This will either have the effect of pushing the automobile over awny from the side of the door, or it will offer enough obstruction to the forward movement of the automobile to warn the driver in time to change the automobile's position. Obvious ly, these diagonal pipes would only be of advantage when entering the garage, being of no service when back ing out. The concrete or wooden blocks, however, are Intended as backing-out protection, serving to guide the wheels In the path they should follow In or der to clear the doorway sufficiently. They are of no special advantage when entering the garage, being op posite in their function to the diagonal pipe fenders mentioned above.—Popu lar Science Monthly.

I \f AUTOMOBILE COMFORT FOR INFANT GET CAR INTO SHAPE FOR SUMMER DRIVING Many Motorists Inclined to Over look Cooling System. Nothing More Vital to Efficient Opera* tion and Performance of Car-— .Thorough Cleaning Increases Efficiency. While friend wife is enjoying bar annual housecleanlng bee and mislay* ing the furniture, friend husband I"»t a few jobs that he might as well get busy at. According to the calendar the warm days are in the offing and will soon be beckoning to the open road. It is the advice of experienced automobile service men that now ii the time to give the car a thorough inspection and take the necessary measures to put it In flrst-clas* shape for the summer use. When it comes to overhauling a car or tuning it up many motorists are in clined to overlook the cooling system. This is a mistake, for there is nothing more vital to efficient operation and performance. At this time of year ev ery car owner should give the cooling system, Including the radiator, water jackets, hose and pump, a thorough cleaning. The best way to do this is to drain the water out of the car, then fill up the radiator with a weak solution of soda and water. Having done this, let the engine run for ten minutes or so. Then drain off this liquid and replace It with pure water. Again let the en gine run for a few minutes and again drain the car. You will then be ready to fill your radiator for regular use. This Is advantageous because it cleans out the radiator, water jackets, hose and pump thoroughly, freeing them from deposits, especially those left by anti-freezing mixtures used during the winter, which, if allowed to remain In the car, would probably rot the hose and do other damage. Taking this simple precaution not on ly extends the life of the car, but pre vents future trouble and Increases ef ficiency.
