It has become so generally on

The following letter just taken
from a German prisoner gives some
idea of the panic created at Essen
by Sergeant Uallois' explolnt In
bombing the famous Krupp works
on the night of July 6th:
"Essen, July .
-1-ast night we had the visit of
sn enemy air squadron. I was
awakened by the anti-elr craft guns
that began firing a hundred rounds
in succession. The window panes
trembled. The sirens of all the fac
tories began to shriek, and the bells
sounded the alarm. It was terrible.
Rockets were shot up on every hand.
All of the street lights were ex
tinguished. All of the factories
were darkened and every one sought
refuge in the caves snd cellars.
"When calm was again restored
everyone went to bed, but immedi
ately afterwards other airplanes
came and it all began over again.
'Bombs were also thrown on the
Tyssen plant at 'Mulhelm. The new
Kruppstrsss plant, the new munition
factory, is destroyed from top to
bottom (total kaput). I cannot give
you yet the complete details. I will
write you tomorrow.

SAVING THE TIRES.
Seme Advieo en Hew to Treat Them
to Make Them Last
"Practical tests prove tbst a car Is
not stopped aa quickly when the wheels
are locked as wbeu the brskes are ap
plied gently, but firmly," ssld a tire ex
pert In a talk about tires.
"By locking the wbeel and skidding
the tire the rubber is scrsped and torn
off and the canvas lstd bare. Goodby
tire. A tube must be plsced Inside a
casing, and every crease must be elim
inated. A carelessly fitted tube will
be subjected to abnormal tension In
several places and will be snre to burst
"Msny drivers still ran on deflated
tires. There is nothing will ruin a shoe
quicker than this. When you get a
puncture, stop immediately and make
repairs or change shoes. When robber
comes In cootsct with oily or fatty sub
stances it blisters and disintegrates.
Bee that your tires do not come In
contact with any kind of grease.
"We have known brand new tires to
wear out In only ISO miles of driving,
simply because the front wheels were
not properly sllgned. If your wheel"
are not parallel and true, bsve them
tested st once snd the trouble cor
rected. "Vulcanizing by sn Incompetent per
