THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH, PAGE NIN V" ! Of Interest to Automobile Owners TATISTICS ON PRO DUCTION GASOLINE, NATURAL liAS IN U.S. More than 2,100 cities and towns in lie United States are supplied with atural gas, which is furnished to umestic consumers at jrates that lould arouse the envy of those con- kmers of artificial gas who have to iy about a dollar a thousand cubic e The average price per thou nd cubic feet charged to domestic msumers of natural gas in the Uni- :d State? in 1917 was about 30 cents. de average price charged to manu .cturers was less than 12 cents. Mst of the towns and cities lup- Bied with natural gas are in New fork, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Vir- rtnia, Kansas, Oklahoma, and UM brnia. In Ohio 872,000 domestic con- jmers were supplied in 1917, in lennsylvania 480,000, in California f 19,000, nn Kansas 188,000, in Mew ork 164,000, in Wst Virginia 129,- 00, and in Oklahoma 95,000. The in- jstnal consumers, by whom the gas used for manufactures or for gen- ating power, use twice as much gas Is the -domestic consumers. During the present century the lalue of the natural gas used in the united States has risen annually with- jt break from S27,000,0001to $142,- DO.000 and is still rising. A report on "Natural Gas and Nat ural Gas Gasoline irf 1917" by John D. tforthrop, just published by the Uni- ed States Geological Survey, Depart ment of the Interior, gives statistics f the production and consumption of atural cas and sketches the condi- ion of the industry in 25 States. It ;ivcs also statistics concerning gas line made from natural gas in that ear. Gasoline From Natural Gas. , The recovery of gasoline from nat- pi gas has now Decome a large in Jstry, which contributes materially lo the supply of motor fuels. Experi ments in the conversion of natural is to gasoline were made as early as .903, but experiment did not give way o commercial production until about 910. The growth, of the industry ince that year has been remarkable. n 1911 there were in operation 176 , )ants, which produced about 7,400,000 gallons of raw gasoline from natural ra. In 1917, only six years later, ;here were 886 plants, which produced learly 218,000,000 gallons. Prior to 1916 "most of the gasoline recovered from natural tras was derived from ising-head gas obtained from oil ivells, by methods involving compres sion and condensation, but from year to year an increasingly large propor tion of the annual output of natural- ;as gasoline has been recovered by tie absorption process, which has now een applied not only to "wet" gas from oil wells but also to so-called "dry" gas, which occurs independent of oil and constitutes the main supply I of natural gas. Dry gas can not be I profitably converted into gasoline by compression. When Bull Meets Ford .;. Just why a particular Bull grazing on a side hill in Santa Ana Canyon one day recently should entertain so sincere a dislike for a black Ford tour ing car is a mystery. He may have had gastritis or a bad liver, or he may have disliked all .automobiles or all Fords. Anyway, wh,en the Harris Family of San Pedro drove their Ford around the base of that sidehill, Friend Bull snorted, slapped his tail at a fly, missed it, .saw red, and for want of something better to do, decided to en gage the Ford in combat. ' There wasn't much of a fight. After the Bull had turned the Ford upside down in the road, he was much better satis fied with himself and strolled into the shade of a nearby ' tree to view his handiwork. The members of the Harris family had not been hurt seriously, as they mobilized forces, rolled the Ford over onto its wheels, cranked it and con tinued their journey. r EL PASO-PHOENIX RACE COMPLETELY HAPPED 001 Phoenix, Oct. 3.

One publication alone, issued to prospec tive cash register buyers, reached a distribution of 1,200,000 copies per month. While with the National Cash Reg ister Company, Mr. Gibbs gathered about him a staff of experts in every branch of advertising activity and 'in augurated many original window dis ' plays which were shown thrqughout j the country. Following his resignation from the Cash Register Company, Mr. Gibbs associated himself with Robert Pat terson, former Vice President of the 'company and opened offices in Chi jcago, operating as an Advertising and ' Sales Counsel. i He later accepted a tender from the Bush Terminal Company of New York i and resigned that position recently to become associated with the Goodrich ' Company.

As a writer and lecturer on topics of advertising and merchandising Mr. Gibbs has likewise earned an interna tional reputation. "Let me kiss those tears away," he begged tenderly. She fell into his- arms and he was busy for the next few minutes, and yet the tears flowed on. "Can nothing stop them?" he asked breathlessly. "No," she murmered, "it is hay fev er, you know. But go on with the treatment." Xff&lMon, Stationery Electric Motor Bepalxlngr, Winding, Etc, Auto Xapoln E. W.

To this master product of steel the Chevrolet owes itsSnderful stamina and enduring life. For instance, the axles on a Chevrolet car could be twisted and distorted entirely out of their original shape without breaking All other such important units could be subjected to just as severe strains, which are seldom if ever encountered in actual motoring without damage. This is one of the many reasons that Chevrolet cars give such satisfying service year after year with remark ably low cost of upkeep.
