"Will you send in word?" asked the young man. The boy shrugged. "Aw, I can't send in word," he said, "lie's busy, Can't be bothered all the' time, you know." After a moment's hesitation: "Well, I'll let you see the secretary. The secretary was an officious young woman. "Have you an appointment T" she snapped and held up her hands in desperation when the man admitted that he had none. "I d like to know what people think he's doiDg that he can see every one who happens to run in. You'd better go back and make an appointment. Write me . a let ter." The young man wilted. "But can't you send in word?" he asked. The secretary frowned. ''Well, 111 see if his assistant can see you," she said grudgingly.

From America, home' of mechanical marvels, comes the news of a record thata can be thrown on the floor and stamped on. The point is that the new record is flexible, and a certain amount of knocking about does not disagree with it. From this fact proceeds an even more interesting piece 'of in formation. The hand-wiHten letter, we are told, is doomed; why worry to put pen to paper when the very sound of the words as you speak them can be recorded, pushed into the envelope and sent through the post without dam age? It niigh certainly make for clar ity in long-distance intercourse.

SnJ W CJ Advantages of the Willys-Knight Sleeve-Valve Motor T It is, interesting to study some of the published reports of the proceedings of the Society of Automobile Engineers in this connection. Here is what Mr. David Fergusson, at that time Chief Engineer of the Pierce-Arrow Motor Com pany has to say on this subject: ' "The poppet-valve is a somewhat crude proposition ..an engine of the type of the Knight when properly lubricated teems to last a great length of time without undue wear." The poppet-valve motor can never be better than on the day4when it is new. From the first turn of the motor, such a mechanism deteroiates loses efficiency it goes down hill. BUT it has the one advantage of cheapness. It is an inexpensive piece of mechanism the cam andspring. It lends itself to manufacturing practices, but from an owner's standpoint it offers none of the advantages of the Knight motor. The Willys-Knight motor employs the use of sliding sleeves which are operated in much the same manner as are the valves of a steam engine ; and it is a well known fact that steam engines, if properly cared for, wear in definitely. ' - The functioning of the Knight motor is accomplished by means of two sliding sleeves, one of which telescopes the other. In each of these sleeves are two ports or slots which are so timed that as the sleeves move up or down the ports or slots register with each other admit ting the fresh charge of gasoline vapor and later allowing j the burned gases which follow the explosion to be thor oughly expelled from the combustion chamber. $1375 F. 0.
