Of course tho buyer receives n cor-

At any rate he should take the
instruction book Hint cornea with hi

deal of It will be Greek to him and
It will be necessary to consult nn ex-

technical Information and make It
somewhat understandable. This bonk
should be reverenced next to the Illhle.
It Is Indispensable.
Doubtless the owner will find that
the manufacturer bus for Instance
given certain Instruction concerning
lubrication perhaps has specified cer-
tain kinds of lubricants. Now no
mutter how much you mny know
nbout the subject of lubrication rest
assured that the manufacturer has
had nn engineer study out the lubri-
cation of his car und what be writes
concerning it Is the Inst word and
It should be followed Implicitly.
Service Depends on Care.
The same thing Is true us to tire
brakes or steering gear or uny other
part of the mechanism.
The owner whether ho possesses n
lotv-prhed enr or an edition do luxe
has about as much money tied up hi

depends not so much upon the amount
t the purchase price as upon what
can be gotten out of It; Its sen Ice Its
dependability and general reliability ;
that and the low cost of upkeep and
It Is reasonable therefore for the
owner to gle ns miK.li thought anil

the equUalcnt of 12000 miles of com

Trior to fie jears ago the federal

Nlnety-threo road construction proj

Department of Agriculture according
to n compilation Just made public.
Virtually every tjpo of construction Is
represented In the approved projects.
The states In which these projects
wero approved nnd the number of

The longest stnglo stretch of roadway
approved In one project during the
month was an earth road In Calhoun
county Mississippi 35 3 miles Jong;
the shortest 0 0 mile was a brick
road In Slurk county Ohio.
GOOD USE FOR SUBSTITUTES
Gravel and Macadam Can Be Em-

of Road Is Built.
It will require several jears for tho
United States to curry out tho plans
for u comprehensive hj Etem of hard-

npiIB Standard Oil compnny has
found u wu to utilize all tho
residue from tbe dlstlllutlon of pe-
troleum. Gasoline now one of the
ihlef products of the concern vvus once
u by-product. All the coiil tur de-
rivatives from which iimny drugs und
medicines are made nre by-products.
So are parullln ouidles und hundreds
of other articles In every day use.
The Standard Oil compnny Is n big
concern. It has thousands of tech-
nically trnlned experts nt work for It.
It has plants all over the world the
biggest plunts of tbe kind In existence.
Such nn Institution cun well afford
to go Into the business of making by-
products nnd to expend u part of Its
almost limitless energies In getting
all time Is possible out of the crude oil
which flow 8 from Its wells.
But the business of developing by-
products Is for n corporation nnd n
big one not for nn Individual.
You may funcy that jou can throw
off bj -products easily ns you do jour

are a bookkeeper that by spending
n few nights writing moving picture
scenario 011 will be nble to utilize all

It Is possible Hint jou will get rich

But If " " do It will be because jou

Charles M Schwab onu of tho
notable leaders In the steel Industry
In which he began as a boy of seven-
teen forty-one jears ago sold "I
nould rather lose money month after
month In mj; plnnt than make It by
any but the highest methods In the
Mr. Schwab went to work to learn
the business and he learned It thor-
oughly by mastering every detail as
he proceeded scorning a tired back
and soiled hands.
He credits his rise to loyalty to
his employer und stntes that success
came from constant application to tho
subject In view.
Hero In n few simple word for
those who will take time to read will
bo found the formula for the attain-
ment of success.
And here too Is embodied the rulo
which every person must accept as
his own a hard and fast law ns Hint

Let the Indifferent young man nnd
woman Inclined to grumble and shirk
duty ponder the wonderful meaning of
"highest methods" nnd "lojnlty to cm-
plnj er." 1
Tbe five words mny be likened to
binges upon which the grent door of
success swings wide open nt the un-
relenting push of the hand and brain
that refuse to be denied entrunco.
Whenever jou go to work In sombre
dajs remember that thero Is within
you n force which If properly upplled
will enable jou to open this same door
nnd tnke your place among the leaders.
And thl force must bo called up
by jou nlone.
Nobody else can do It for jou.

humans full and go tumbling into the

No man or woman with fenr In the

TOO 3IUC3I PROFANITY
H-iOO often cussing Is tnken ns a
matter of course. Men In high
positions are frequently expert In tho
use of profane words nnd the Influ-
ence of bnd language has 0 bnd effect
on both the old nnd the young.
Much effort 1 being mnde to In-
crease tho uso of better Kngllsh nnd
nlong with this propaganda It would
be well to preach considerable against
the use of bad language.
Directly cussing unless the nnme of
the Master Is taken In vnln mny cause
no great damage. But Indirectly It does
much bnrm. When the little folk hear
their parents swearing their respect
for their elders Is either lessened or
else the youngsters begin using It
themselves as n matter of course. Not
Infrequently we hear little shavers
hardly able to speak plainly using
language which would put many men
und women to shame.
Pike county Kentucky recently
honored tho memory of Its oldest citi-
zen Jesse B. Osborne. Much wns said
In prntso of this departed citizen who
crossed the bar nt tho nge of ninety-
two jenrs nnd no louder praise was
hoard than of his reputation for never
having permitted u profane word to
pass from his lips.
Judging from this event one might
assume that profanity Is the rulo rather
than tho exception. If this Is tho case
Isn't It nbout time to cnll a hnlt? The
old remedy considered quite effective
for curing profnne habits wns to wash
tho boy's mouth with soap. But from
our observation wo nre Inclined to bo-
llevo that It would ho unfnlr to uso
such n remedy to stop youths from
cussing. The cnuso too frequently
rests with the parents who worry nnd
complain because their offspring are
devilish nnd almost beyond their con-
trol. A general mouth-w ashing of the
elders probably would have grenter
Profano language Is not beautiful.
It does no good. It may be the step-
ping stone to lives of (rime which end
In prison cells. For onco the bars are
lowered against small wrongs the big-
ger wrongs nre certain to be lurking
near nnd crawl Into one's life.
Less profanity would ndd to tbe Joy
ot tht world.
