Tire Company is Educating Custom

'Premature Deterioration of Tire In

"The care of tire is essential, If the
expense of running an automobile In to be
kept at a minimum," gays P. A. Hender

ment of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber
company, Akron, O.
' Premature deterioration Ib due to neg

"We have recently Introduced a plan
whereby the dealer Is enabled to see the
advisability and advantage gained by In
structing his customers on the care of
their tires when the first adjustment Is
made. It Is an educational campaign
that Is being carried on by the adjusting
department through the- dealer, and he Is
the logical Intermediary between the
manufacturer and the consumer.
"From a recent Investigation we found
that, a large portion of the tires returned
for an adjustment had gone, out of service
through external causes that could have
been avoided.
"We knew that there was only one
remedy that could overcome this condi
tion, and that was to Instruct the user
of automobile tires on their care. When
a customer experiences difficulty with his
tires, he Is naturally at the time of the
trouble In a receptive mood, and will no
doubt take advantage of any Information
he might receive that would tend to over
come his trouble In the future. This is
the object of Instructing customers when
making their first adjustment."

Tew persons, on first thought, would
sec any possible connection between good
roads and good health. Yot the Stato
Hoard of Health of Kansas says that
good roads can and will prevent disease.
How? By the removal of weeds and
trash. Weeds and trash prevent the
prompt evaporation of moisture and pro
mote retention" of ground water. This
mftkes breeding spots for mofxjultoes,
flies and other insects, which are known
ns disease carriers, not to mention chinch
bugs, hoppers and other Insects which
arc crop damagers. Furthermore, an Un
dergrowth of weeds Invites the dumping
of garbage and manure by offering con
cealment, of which fact careless and
thoughtless people are prone to take ad
vantage, thus Increasing the facility of
Insect breeding and providing these in
rect carriers with proper material for
disease transmission. Good roads also
prevent disease by providing good drain
age. Many farms have no means of
drainage except by ditches along road
ways. Open ditches, clear of brush and
debris, with hardened surface and proper
fall, afford these farms the opportunity
of ridding themselves of many a stag
nant pool. The removal of weeds, proper
road grading, surface hardening and oil
ing, Insures prompt drainage of all pool,
ditch and surface water, removing the
possibility of insect breeders, for none
can multiply without moisture. Road oil
ing in Itself, Is destructive of 'Insect lar
vae, especially mosquitoes a well known
fact. Dry roads' offer pedestrians, and
notably children who arc compelled to
walk to and from school, dry shoes and
feet. While colds aro due to specific
germs, yet Ids a well-known fact that
cold, wet feet and chilled limbs lower
the resistance, of. lndlvlduas and make
them more favorable subjects for lnfec
t'ons of the respiratory passages, In
cluding pneumonia and. tuberculosis.
Good roadx prevent disease by setting
an example to adjoining farm premises.
Good roads promote travel and set an
example to the farmer whose premises
are bordered by them. The comparison
of a well graded, clean highway with an
unkempt and trashy barnyard adjoining
is sufficient to stimulate every land
owner to a clean-up. lYlde compels him
to offer to passers by a neat appearing
and attractive house and barnyard. Re
sults are only too obvious Good roads
are active disease prevention agencies,
aside from their financial and commer
cial value. American Medical Associa

When the Summer

lly 1IKXHV M. HOl'KWKM,.
When tho frost is on the mediler
And tho leaves begin to rnttlo,
And tho corn is in tho crib
To feed tho sheep and cattle;
When you feel tho cooling breeze
That's broke tho summor's drouth,
And watch tho flight of birds
As they Journoy to tho south,
And when the moaning winds
Around your homo plnco sigh,
And your fuel bin is full
To keep you warm and dry,
It's then a fellor 'prec'ates
Tho bloomin' summer's work;
When tho frost is on tho modder
And tho leaves begin to rattle,
And the corn is in tho crib
To food the sheep and cattle.
When tho wheat is cut and threshed,
And tho bins aro full of grain,
And tho plowlng-nll is over,
And the seeding dono again,
When tho apples all are picked
And tho 'taters, too, are dug,
And the whoio durn garden truck
Is stowed away all snug;
When tho .boys and girls go nutting
And they gather from tho trees
A supply of goodly picking
For their winter evening bees,
When tho base ball season's over
And tho foot bull takes its place,
Then tho frost is on the medder
And the leaves begin to rattlo,
And tho corn is in tho crib
To feed tho sheep and cattle.
When the Inndscapo all In colored
With hue of brown and yoller.
And the squirrel snugly stores .

And tho dry and husky leaves
Have fallen thick in heaps,
' And tho swine all follow quickly
For ft place to He nnd sleep,
And tho hnuling all tn dono,
And tho mow Is full of hay,
And when tho stock, is sheltered
From a cold nnd stormy day,
Oh I it's then you feel secure.

When the frost Is on tho modder
And tho leaves begin to rattlo.
And tho corn is In tho crib
To feed tho sheep nnd cattle.
Tho atmosphoro is bracing
As you sniff tho morning air,
For tho torrid summer's over.
With rejoicing every where;
We miss tho summer dews,
And tho music of tho bees,
And tho singing of tho birds
As they fly among the trees.
But tho air Is cool nnd crisp,
And your step is quick and spry,
And you feel llko being thankful
For tho good things all laid by.
Yes, tho summortlmo is over
And tho winter's coming on.
When tho frost Is on tho medder
And tho leaves being to rattle,
And the corn Is In the crib

of two chassis types a "Four" at 11,000,

fitted with left-hand steer nnd center
control. Kach modol carries a two-unit

Is supplied with tho "Four,"
In both cars tho gasoline supply has

Radiator Emblem for Lincoln Highway
The above illustration shoys an actual scene taken in our factory October 30th, 1913.
One year ago it was impossible to find a "jiffy" curtain on Omaha streets today you see
hundreds of them. The comfort they afford, the service they render, and the ease with which
they are applied was instantly recognized by the motorists; in fact, a car
is not complete without the celebrated "Jiffy" curtain.
"Jiffy" curtains can be applied to any top, new or old.
Call, and let us show you the true value of these wonderful "Jiffy" Radiator curtains as
well as our closed top for winter, or, if more convenient, we shall be pleased to send a man
to demonstrate them to you.'
We are prepared to render you prompt and efficient service. The materials used in the
construction of these curtains and tops is the best obtainable.
One look tells it all.
