Wear Proof Tread Tires
V 9
WEAR-PROOF TIRES arc of the famous ‘ Egypto” Rubber Construction-so tough and Wear Resisting as to
be almost impregnable— thus practically wear proof.
Heat— The Enemy of Tires
Don’t Be Misled
It has been conclusively proven that the heat in a tire
is not caused by the friction of the road, but is gener­
ated by the incessant compression and expansion of the
air within the tire as the car rolls over the road.
This heat is retained by the rubber, because rubber is
a non-radiating material. How different this is where
WEARPROOF TREADS are used. The steel studs are
constant heat radiating points, hardened steel being the
best heat radiator known. Thus the steel studs are
continually conducting the heat from within the tire.
Equip your car with Wearproof Treads and you are
virtually riding on air-cooled tires.
Don’t confuse Wearproof Treads with the many infer­
ior and so-called "tire protectors” on the market, made
of cheap chrome leather or some fibre substitute for
rubber, that merely fit the tires to which they are ap­
plied until they become wet and water-soaked, making
the "protector” loose and baggy, in which condition it
will slip and creep on the tire, generating excessive heat
and more often ruining your tires than protecting them.
If you have used them, you know, and if you have not,
just ask some one that has used some of those so-called
"tire protectors”

Beautiful Spot in Which Have Been
Laid American Soldiers Who
Died in Liberty's Cause.
On the wooded slope of a steep hill
•hit rises high over a great beud in
th River Seine lies a little plot of
earth that is as much America as is
the national cemetery at Arlington or
the hallowed ground of Gettysburg. It
Is a quiet and peaceful s|x>t. for al­
though Paris 1« near— the slender pin-
nncle o f the Eiffel tower is I” plain
slew over the trees— the city ft. «epn-
rated from the American cemetery at
Sumesries by the green expanse of
the Bols de Boulogne. The heart of
the city that Is the heart o f the world
Is not five miles aw ay; yon would
think it at least fifty. It Is a spot far
removed from war. and yet there are
enough o f the accoutrement« o f war
about it to remind the visitor that the
700 graves here are the graves of sol­
diers— mostly o f so'dlers who died of
their wounds on the journey In from
the front or at one o f the hospitals in
or ne; r the capital. Further up the
elope frown the ramparts o f the fort
o ' Mount Vnlerien. one in the chain
o f defenses that surround Paris. Dur­
ing hostilities planes flew from field to
field, the drone o f their motors never
eo clear as in this quiet countryside.
Aral more warlike still, an occasional
cannon shot echoed from a testing
ground in the neighborhood. The lit­
tle- cemetery Itself, with its well-
aligned rows o f white wooden crosses,
will some day he as green and fair a
Ood’a acre as hiij - In France. It Is
becoming so as fast as the loving
hands of the living can convert It Into
one. Even In these fresh fall days,
tiie graves are all nbleora, and hardy
slim ' s add a touch o f «Amber beatify
to the little com ers and round points.

Is Essential in Production of Sulphuric
Ac d, Indispensable in Manufac­
ture of Explosives.
T w o universtilly known products—

acid— have lately assumed lnn«ortnn«*e
that is mystifying to the Inity. Plati­
num has beeome virtually the king of
metals, mid sulphuric acid the king of
cl«« ini« ills. The reasons for thi* nre
most simple.
Platinum Is obtained
eh.el'.y from the l.'ral mountains. Ow ing

caw mini in the niiinufa« lure of sul­

o f it being present, oxygen, water and
sulphur dioxide will not unite cliem-

pensable product us« «1 in the prosecu­
tion o f the war. Its tremendous attln-
Ity tor water made it vitally important
In the manufacture of high explosives.
For Instance, one ohtuins a fuirl.v
harmless liquid by mixing glycerin anil
nitric acid. If sulf^iuric acid Is ad<led.
It combines the two chemically by
taking an atom o f hydrogen and one
o f oxygen from the nitric acid, an
atom o f hydrogen from the glycerin,
forming water, and taking It unto It­
self. One then has nitroglycerin. In a
similar manner sulphuric ad d Is need­
ed for the manufacture o f guncotton
and T XT. Thus we had the pecu­
liar cycle of drcumstances that made
It unpatriotic for an Amerh-an to have
In his possession more than an ounce
of platinum In the form o f jewelry.
Incidentally, however, there is said to
be good reason for the l»elief that a
very large proportion o f the so-called
platinum In modern Jewelry Is com­
posed wholly or at least In part of
cheaper metals.— Popular M«-fhr.nlcs
