Engine Seat of Trouble.
The engine Is the" sent of tho greater
pnrt of tho unnecessary noises that
seem Inevitable In tho operation of the
cur. Tho commonest engine noises nre
valve clicks nnd ships both of which
may be detected by tho rhythmical
regularity of their occurrence.
Tho renson for noisy genr operation
Is too grcnt clenranco between the
valvo nnd Its seat. In the caso of over-
head valves too grent n clearance be-
tween lifter nnd push rod will cause
tho trouble. Thu remedy Is obviously
the reduction of tho clearance to tho
correct distance and this work should
bo done whllo tho ctiKlne Is heated
because of the expansion f metal
when hentcd In which condition tho
ynlves necessnrlly run.
Whllo tho vnlvo system Is tho com-
monest sent of nolso troubles In tho
engine It Is not the solo location where
this trouble may bo looked for. The
benrliiRs In most engines are of soft
nietnl which must bo kept copiously
lubricated or It will burn nnd llutten
out with n knock ns tho result. The
ordinary remedy for this Is to tnke up
the bearing by removing tho shim be-
tween tho two halves or elso to trim
tho metnl on the movnblo part. Cure
must bo used In performing this opera-
tion to see that tho bearing touches
tho slinft all around without being too
rteiian for Many Noliei.
Transmission noises nro not at all
uncommon nnd generally result from
ono of tho shafts being out of lino by
renson of n worn bearing or n binding
gear. Sometimes tho entire transmis-
sion Is out of line so that both shafts
are out of truo. Very often n gear
mny bo broken because tho shaft has
been out of line. Tho cor owner has
i n new one Installed but this does not
help for long because the entire unit

all the hlchwuv denartments on the
"trojiaratlon of maps of the proposed
system but naturally such an Impor-
tant matter will tako some llttlo time
and consideration. The government
authorities will Insist that Important

which will requlro conferences be-
tween authorities of different slates.
In order that work will not be
delayed pending the approval of each
state system tho secretary of agri-
culture has amended the rules and
regulations for federal aid to permit
the Immediate construction of such
roads as It may reasonably bo antici-

State highway oltlclnls are being
advised that the anticipated route of

SEEDS FOR IMPURITY
Heavy Losses to Growers During
Past Two Years.
LITTLE MARVEL IS SUPERIOR
Best Plan to Depend on 8uccetelon
Planting a Week or Ten Days Apart
Rotation Is Alio of Much
The very finest qunllty peas at the
present time are neither strictly
speaking dwarfs nor arc they tall.
They are Intermediate and while they1
may be grown as dwnrfs and without
brushing they bear better when given

strip of chicken wire. These nre the
Qrudus nnd Laxton types of pen
which vary from UO Inches to nlmo-it
four feet nccordlng to vnrlety. All
do better with support although com-
monly grown ns dwnrfs. They give a
heavier yield when held upright.
Wrinkled Type Superior.
Of tlfc very cnrly pens of the wrln-
it led type which Is much superior to
the earliest smooth-seeded type Lit-
tle Marvel still holds n high place
among really dwarf peas the vines
being only about eighteen Inches. It
matures In eight weeks nnd Is verj
hnrdy nnd of tho finest qunllty. A
little earlier Is Market Surprises
Alaska and Maud S. smooth-seeded
pens still remain the earliest of all
of good qunllty If taken very young
but not equal to the wrinkled vari-
eties which are not so hardy and can-
not bo planted or cropped so cnrly.
It Is possible with the variety of
peas now on tho market to plan a
good succession planting stnrtlng with
Alaska Surprise I.lttle Marvel Grad-
us I.nxtonlnn nnd Thnmns Lnxton.
However It Is better to depend up-
on a successlonal planting a week or
tun days apart ns the scaspn may be
snch as to bring the cropping of dif-
ferent peas too close together at ma-
turity If planted nt the same time.
The planting of peas In double rows
six Inches npnrt these double rows to
be three feet npart Is about right for
the more dwarf varieties but If the
more vigorous growing dwarfs are to
be planted they will need at least four
feet between the rows unless they are
given brush or wire.
Tho round seeded pens enn go Into
the ground as soon ns It enn be dug
but It Is best to wnlt n week or two
for the wrinkled varieties to be on
the safe side.

previous season by beans for best re-

garden plan each year with an eye to
moving the peas and beans across the
garden so that they will not occupy
the same space In succeeding years.
Of course heavy fertilizing partly
makes up for the oxhaustlng of the
soil but It cannot wholly do so. These
two vegetables tako more out of the
soil than tho others and It Is more
necessary to see that they rotate.
SAN JOSE SCALE INCREASING
Lime Sulphur and Scaleclde Must Be
Applied If Orchard Trees
Are to Be Saved.
During the last two or three years
a good many people In the North with
home orchards have believed that the
San Jose scale wns becoming extinct.
As u matter of fact the sleet which
persisted so long on the trees the win-
ter of four years ago suffocated the
scale Jast as does the lime-sulphur

ter ninny old trees revived nnd hnvo
