has drawn thousands of tourists this
summer and the average family like
my own spends J10 per day. We've

THE next time a friend comes
to you all excited about some
wonderful tire bargain ask him
how much value he ought to get
for each dollar of tire money.
It's astonishing that any car
owner today should not know all
the tire service he is entitled to.
Nor how to check up between
the economy of par quality On
one hand and big discounts,
surplus stocks, discontinued lines
and retreads on the ether.
For two years U. S Tire
makers have been telling the
American people all about tires.
They. have laid open the tire,
business from every angle.
They have always
led the fight for better
They have consist-
enjly maintained quality first
standards with certain economy
for the tire buyer. . x
They have established 92
Factory Branches all-over the
country. Perfecting U. S. distri
bution so that you get a fresh,
live tire every time you buy a
So when a man once decides
on U. S. Tires he knows what he
is getting in quality service
In support of his own judg
ment he gets the pledged word
ahd reputatiort of the largest
and most successful tire concern
in -the world. '

that you see more

Saturn And Its Rings
Now let us turn aside from Jupiter
ana taKe a look at Saturn, which Is
the most wonder-inpirina; of all the
Planets. Thoug-h a little less than half
Die size of the Jovian globe, it Is six
nundred times as tilgr as the Earth.
Its material, however. Is only half as
ne.ivy as mat ot which Jupiter is com
posed, relatively to volume, and thus
Hie total wclsht of Saturn Is but one
hundred times as jjrrat, as that of the
0H1 nn which we dwell.

, Saturn Is certainly very hot, but not

merely by rrnr:cd suniUM. When
viewed through the telescope, tho
globe shows quite black whee the
shadow of Its ring Is cast upon It;
which would not be the case if it re
tained any of its original luminosity.
Since time Immemorial the ring of
Saturn has been to stargases a mar
vel and a puzzle. As a matter of fact,
it has throo rlnps, the outer one be
ing 11,846 miles wide, with an ex-'
ternal diameter of 173,118 miles. In
side of. this is a second ring 17,181
miles wide and 145,828 miles In di
ameter; and further Inside Is tho so-
called "crepe riruj," 11,683 miles in
breadth. Between the inner edge of
tne, crepe ring and the ball of the
Planet Is a space 1,730 miles wide. ,
Those figures (given br Prof. T. .T
J. See, of the U. S. Naval Observatory)
convey a sufficient impression of Im
mensity. But whatt Is to be said about
the -nature of these rings l-the mate
rial or wntcti they are composed?
Hintrs Of Star Dust
Only within very recent years have
the astronomers found an answer to
this question. Thry say that beyond
a upuot tno rings are composed of
particles of meteoric matter slur
auot it might be called which revolve
about the planet In obedience to the
same jaw that Kov.trns all natollltcs.

Beyond A Gap Of Space
The four little planets Meroury,
Venus, Earth and Mars are relatively
close to the Sun. We are 93,009,00(1
miles distant from that, luminary
Jlarg half. again as far away. Theo
comes a great gap of empty epacebe,"

outer planets, is reached. As already
stated, the Jovian orb, la more than

are. .. . T
But those tour outer, planets ar
the giants, the really worthwhile
m'embers of the Sun's family. Uranus,
