My son, don't think that you can
successfully go throughi life bellow-
ing forth your discontent like a mad
hull leading his untamed herd
through primeval forests; nor does it
pay to yell your displeasure in rude,
uncivil and uncultured thoughts like
a hairy baboon swinging from a cocoa
bough in the darkest jungles of
Africa shouting his displeasure at a
neighbor baboon who has secured the
largest cocoanut; neither, my son,
will it bring you permanent friends
or prosperity, nor add to your char-
acter that much coveted quality fa-
miliarly known as dignity.
Any brute mind with power of
speech can give utterance to rude
mid uncultured thoughts, but it takes
a mind tempered by the law of cour-
tesy and consideration, purified in
Ilie fountain of love and guaged by
the rule of truth to give expression to
elevating and ennobling thoughts.
And you must learn, my son, that
,vou are only one small creature
among (he millions of your kind who
have the right of opinion, and that
if you should fall by the wayside an-
other would quickly take your place,
close up the ranks and you would
be straightway forgotten while the
world moved on in its even course as
though you had never occupied a
place in it. Therefore, my son, you
will find it profitable at all times to
cultivate courtesy and kindness, and
you will find that it will bring you
friends in the time of need.
WHAT 18 A MAGNETO?
What Is a rqagneto?
The automobile owner will answer
that it Is the small dynamo, or gener-
ater, which produces the electricity
necessary to explode the charge in
the engine cylinders. This is only
partially correct and is far from ex-
plaining just how this little machine
The magneto is a small machine
built into the engine and furnishing
current for igniting (he charge. It
takes the place of batteries, and elim-
inates ignition troubles to a great
extent. Magnetos are universally
used on automobiles. There is scarce-
ly a half dozen makes of cars in the
country not equipped with them.
Magnetos have not been used so
widely on stationery gas engines be-
cause they are more expensive than
batteries, and have not heretofore
been designed to meet the requir-
ments of stationery work. They are
now furnished, however, by all the
leading engine makers, and make the
larni engine as reliable as the auto-
mobile. The slow speed engine timed
magneto is the most successful type.
This will start and run engines of
all sizes and requires no renewal or
attention beyond occasional oiling.
In appearance a magneto resembles

two or three large horseshoe mag-
nets set side by side. It is, in fact,
nothing more than two or three mag-
nets with a bundle of wire between
them. This wire is wound on a little
iron spool, which is revolved, and as
the wire passes the "poles" or ends
of the magnets, a current is conduct-
ed to the igniter or spark plug, where
the spark is produced.
Just how and why the revolving of
a wire between the poles of a mag-
net produces a current of electricity
is hard to explain. Furaday discov-
ered, years and years ago, that if a
wire was forced across the invisible
"lines of force,'' which exist between
the pole's of every magnet, that a cur-
rent of electricity would be induced,
or generated, In the wire. The re-
volving part of the magneto, consist-
ing of a bundle of wires is made to
cut the "line of force" between the
magnetic poles by belting the shaft
to the engine. As these wires, in
turn, are forced across the "lines of

force," a current of electricity is pro-
duced. All dynamos and generators
which produce electricity by the ap-
plication of mechanical energy work
on this same principle. But the mag-
neto differs from the dynamo, or gen-
erator, in that permanent horseshoe
magnets are used in the field. Per-
manent magnets are too small and
weak for the more powerful gener-
ators and electro-magnets are used
instead. The electro magnet consists
of a sott iron core wrapped with
many turns of insulated wire. They
are powerful magnets only so long
as a current of electricity is flowing
through the wire. When this current
ceases the magnetism vanishes.—
