In vet other instances development has been, resumed in copper properties which had for some time been inoperative. Yet other properties are soon for the first time to undergo development. Among the latter is the Green Monster, said by engineers to be the best copper pros pect In the vicinity of the United Verde mine.

'Balanced Tires We have actually produced the long-sought-for 'balanced' tires. m The instant success of our popular priced 'Usco' Tread is a striking example of the automobile owners' immediate recognition of our 'balanced' tires. There are three bitr, exclusive reasons why tha 'balanced' tire is the 100 per cent, efficient tire. 1 Because tbe rubber tread is 'balanced' that i, the tread has juat the exact 'balance between resiliency and toughness, vrhich produce the greatest possible efficiency in the whols tread. 2 Because the fabric carcass i 'balanced that is, tha carca3 has complete 'balance' between flexibility which givea easy riding, and strength which givea endurance. 3 Because tho whole tire is 'balanced' that is, th rubber tread and fabric carcass are in such complete 'balance' as to give equal wear both tread and car cass are equally strong. It is this three-fold 'balance that sets the five United States Individualized Tires in a class apart. Since our 'balanced' tires began to be "felt on the mar ket" last fall, the sales of United States Tires havo in creased steadily month by month up to the recent highest increase of 354 per cent.

Japanese have evolved a scheme for getting iron from the sea which seems more prac tical than the famous project for ex tracting sunfchine from cucumbers. Xakahara Sanji, formerly an. expert in the navy office, has conceived the idea, of fishing up the spent shells which have been fired by the warships at target practice. At certain places, the targets being fixed and the shootin good, the shells lie at the bottom m little hills and the depth, varying from 18 to 22 fathoms, is practicable for diving operations. ....-. The calculation is that there are a million and a half shells lying at the bottom of Hiroshima bay and 60" -000 in Ise bay. besides smaller quanti ties elsewhere. The metal to be ob talned from the shells would bring at present war price about $20 each shell, so there is a chance for a lucrative enterprise. THE lIwELSHfn K ft.D.F0 STER CO. Props 1 EL PASO.
