Tlu as then passes our tiuiHIy with only t slight iiulsjition or ihrohhiiig. The methods by vhich this Ik !trotight about are very simple. A mm passing along an ordinary pipe would be slowed down and sirHd out. This rrmigeinent wuld require too long i pipe, yo ballle plates are used to make the gas turn corners and force ts way through small holes in l.he dates. In some mufl'n rs lh.- ;ms pii 'rs an expansion chamber. All this rime it is losing heat and so contract ing and thus it slows down more and more. The final effect is. as stated, to have the gas issue from the muf fler in a steady, quit t maimer. Leave Muffler Alone. The care of the muffler Is to leave it alone until it Incomes Plugged. Il dues its work without any at lent ion and requires nothing from the driver. The only time we think of it Is whim we wish to find out if the engine is missiug explosions. Then we cut out the muffler and listen to the sound of the exhaust. Do this cautiously on the road, ns there are laws ajjiiinst it in many localities. If the sound of in exhaust is not suiliciently loud It mny be increased by retarding the spark and opening the throttle part way. The sound of each cylinder will then lie brought out distinctly rnd -any weakness will be noticed immediately. Clogging Only Trouble. About the oidy trouble to which the muffler is subject is that it becomes clogged with soot. This may be caused by too rich a mixture from the carbu reter, indicated by black .smoke from the exhaust, or it may be caused by oil working up on top of the .pistons, giv ing the bluish white smoke character istic of too much lubricant.' Another cause is where the carbon has been! scraped loose from the cylinders, but allowed to fall on the piston. This is carried into, the mudler, and ;so htdps to clog.- In order to clean it, it nwst be taken apart and all the carbon de posits removed. If the small holes-are closed with soot they must he Teame-T out with a three-cornered file or benT ing scraper. The .parts are then reas sembled carefully and replaced on the car. ' It Is easy to tell if the muffler -is clogged where there is a cut-out. ; Run the machine up a fairly steep hill.' If the car speeds up with the cut-out open It : shows :that the injaffler is clogged. A -well-designed :sBe ncer should notcnt down the. power of the engine more than Z per cent. . This dif ference will hardly be noticeable on an ordinary mI1- So the fact that the enr slows down would indicate -pre S"e de dI1S- ......

Mr.ny cases of tire trouble are du simply to the fact that the tube has not b"ii properly inserted. The firsi thing to do when putting in a tub( is to, jive the bridge nut at the base of "the valve stem above the metal plate '-a tightening twist with a rwlr of pliers. When the tube is. Jnclde the easing, jar lhe tiro a few times to seat it Jinnly. Vfter the tire is ,inoiinted and fully. inflated, fasten se curely the rim nut, which works around the valve stem above the rim.
