Mistake to Suppose That Motor
Clutch and Transmission
PRACTICE QUITE DANGEROUS
With Clutch In and Motor Turning
Over Slowly Car It Always Under
' Control and Much Leu Likely
More tlmn 00 per cent of nil mo-
torists ninke a practice of throwing
out .the clutch when coasting down
hill. The reason they gtvo Is thnt
"It saves the motor clutch and
transmission." In this they are In
error for such practice not only Is
dttngerous but Is detrimental to those
very parts which one .would save.
In some states especially In the
nest a driver caught going down
hill with his clutch released Is se-
verely dealt with. Over In Trance
during the war a drivel- caught do-
ing this was put In the guardhouse.
There Is no excuse for doing It says
writer In an exchange.
Negotiating a Decline.
Naturally when approaching n de-
cline the vchlclo Is slowed up so that
the motor is turning over slowly. On
releasing the clutch the car Is no
longer held back by the compression
or the motor and gains speed at every
revolution of the wheels. Very often.
If the hill Is at all long the speed
Attained nlnrma the driver who then
applies his brakes. A brake which
even under ordinary conditions would
be sulllclcnt to stand the car on end
or throw the driver through the
windshield will fall to hold very
often when Jammed on at high speed
on a down grade. It often happens
that If the road Is rough the wheels
Mill lock and skid nround perhaps
throwing the car over the bank.
Have Car Under Control.
There Is no better brake for moun-
tain or any other grades than the
compression of the cylinders. Often
It Is necessary to supplement that
braking effect with the service or
-mergency brakes but with the clutch
In and the motor turning over slowly
you nluays have the car under control
and are far less likely to skid If you
should come to a slippery spot as
you often do In the mountains
specially In the early spring when
the snow Is melting.

DEFECTIVE HOSE IS
SOURCE OF TROUBLE
Should Be Examined When En-
gine Begins to Heat Up.
Connection Can De Replaced In Few
Minutes by Anyone Who Is
Handy With Wrench or Screw-
driver and Other Tools.
When engines which normally keep
cool even in hot weather or heavy
climbing begin to heat up suspect the
condition of the rubber hose which
connects the radiator with the wnter
Jacket. There are two such pieces of
hose but It Is the top one which usu
ally goes bad because It carries the
hot water from the top of the englut
Into the radiator. The bottom hose
cnrrles the cooled water eljhcr to the
pump If there Is a pump or dlrecjtly
back to the water Jacket If the cnglno
uos the thcrmo-syphon cooling sjs-
tcm. Cars which use pumps for water cir-
culation have smaller pipes end con-
sequently smaller rubber hose connec-
tions than those which use the tberrao-
syphon cooling system. Hot water
gradually disintegrates the rubber and
cotton of the hose and when the In-
ner lining of the hose breaks down
Into a mush It frequently stops up the
hose connections to an extent sulll-
clcnt to prevent proper wnter circu-
lation. Ileplaclng such a hose con-
nection can he done In a few min-
utes by anyone who can. use n wrench
or screwdriver and Is nn operntlon
which docs not need the skilled and
expensive services of a repair man.
Sometimes engines which cooUprop-
erly In winter heat up when the first
warm days come. In engines of the
pump circulation type tills Is often
caused by a hitherto unsuspected
freezing of the pump wheel blades
suited In broken pump wheel blades.
Dismounting the pump and taking It
to pieces Is the only way to make sure
of this trouble. The remedyi Is a new
Impeller In the pump.

GOOD ROADS AID PROSPERITY
Instance Cited of Virginia Community
Where Great Progress Has Been '
That good fond arc closely relatcU
to prosperity there Is no question ofJ
doubt. Only a few years ngo this'
section of Virginia had but one macadj
am road one creamery which jvcijl
to tlio wall and a mere handful o'f
purebred dairy cuttle writes C. C.y
Conger .Jr. of Virginia In the Practljj
cat i' armor uno not iniumar wiui
the 'many blessings good roads bring
about might wonder In wlmt way good
roads would affect creameries and
pure-bred cows. Let us take for Ill-
stance llocklngbam county and see
Just. what good roads did In this sec-
tlon In the dairy business alone to
say nothing ot tho prosperity good
roads brought about In various other
ways. Previous to our good roads the
one creamery did some business dur-
ing the summer months when the dirt
roads were at their best but business
dwindled to nothing during the winter
months because farmers could not get
over the roads to deliver their milk.
The creamery finally closed down for
the lack of milk. About this tlmo a
mere hundful ot progressive farmers
began a movement for better roads
calling a meeting at n little vlllnge
centrally located In the county. The
attendance was good and n great deul
of "good roads" enthusiasm wus
aroused. It was the first step In bet-
ter roads that' gained Impetus by leap
and hounds. Today In n few short
years we have a network of fine mac-
adam roads throughout the entire
county. Following good roads came
creameries. They sprang up oer night
like mushrooms till today the county
Is dotted with creameries the sight of
which does not look much like clos-
ing down for the lnck of milk par-
ticularly during the curly hours of the
day when auto trucks are pouring In
from tho country bringing milk from
every nook and corner of the county.
Pure-bred cows came with the cream-
cries till today scrub stock no longer
dominates our farms. Ask any farmer
why ho disposed of his scrub cows re-
placing them with pure breds nnd he
will tell you the creameries did It.
Stretch of Hard Surface Read In Vir-
ginia. Ask him what brought the creameries
and he will tell you better roads.
While milk has slumped somewhat at
times In this hcctlon It has never
halted tho dairy business and farm-
ers are now reporting fair profits In
dairying. Tift wculth that good roads
has brought to this section In dairy-
ing alone Is nstonlshlng. We ure
striving for more wealth nnd pros-
perlty by building 'still more good
rouds. Kxperlcnco has taught us that
good roads wealth und prosperity go
hand In hand.

Since tiie adoption ot n standardized
system of ilghway markers by the
state of Wisconsin Ave other states
and England have followed the model
plan. Knch of the state trunk high
ways Is designated by number to cor-
respond to the number ori the official
road map. Markers have been placed
at close Intervals carrying the number
shown on the map making It easy
for the tourist to reach tlio most re-
