Oscillating the valves will tend to keep the seats clean and thus the valves will he found to seat more uni formly. Naturally, this will also pre vent the accumulation o f carbon in any quantity on the seats. My motor skips when running slowly or pulling hard on high gear if the spark lever is advanced more than half way on the quadrant. As soon as I re tard the spark below this point the en gine picks up and will pull as well as it ever did. Why is this? It is not the fault of the carbureter, as I have tried all kinds of adjustments and have operated it under every condition. I f the magneto is correctly timed it is probable (hnt the trouble is due to weak magnets. When the spark lever is advanced all the way the spark ac tually occurs when the armature is at the edge o f the magnetic field Instead of being In the position where the strength of the field is greatest There fore If the magnets are weak the e f fect must first be felt at the weakest point in the field, and that may be ei ther a position of great advance or re tard. depending on how the magneto is linked up. Recharging the magnets should remove the trouble. I have a bent steering knuckle. Should this be straightened when cold or hot? The knuckle should be straightened when hot. It is better to put in a new one, however, as It is difficult to straighten it so that the wheels will run true. If the bend is in the spindle there Is no possibility of straightening it satisfactorily, and even If only the arm Is bent It will bo hard to true it up. Are the so called anti-rust prepara tions injurious to the cooling system? We have no reports where any of the preparations which are on the mar ket that are sold especially for auto mobile radiators have done any harm. There are occasions, however, where boiler compounds have been used which contain corrosive substances that have acted Injuriously on the ra dlator and water connections. For this reason before using any prepara tion It should be known that it is in tended particularly for radiators and nothing else. How far apart should the spark plug points be, using a high tension mag neto? The usual point clearance is one thir- Can gas such as generated from car bide be used in an automobile engine? Yes. Occasionally we hear of a mo torist driving home on acetylene gas when Ids supply of gasoline is exhaust ed. The objection to the use of this gas Is that It is much more expensive than gasoline. The storage battery seems to charge on my car so that it will furnish cur rent for the light» and start the motor; then suddenly It will become dis charged. Where should I look for the trouble? From the Information yon furnish It would seem that the battery Is either completely discharged or you have a short circuit In the system It would soeru quite likeiy that It Is the former, and If this Is the case a thorough re charge will remedy tin* difficulty un less the battery has been left In the discharged condition for too great a length of time.

Notice of Special Stockholders' Meeting On general purpose farm s where there is much heavy work to be done heavy horses are best. They can be raised with less risk than lighter horses, are less high strung and less apt to injure themselves. They can be put to work at an ear-- lier age and require less training and always command a good price. In the last twelve years the price of heavy horses has risen 33 per cent. The stallion pictured Is a pure bred Shire, which has won several prizes in the ring. feed In winter cut down on the onts, add more corn and alfalfa. Feed plentifully, but not wastefully. The alfalfa will balance the corn, and he will do fine. Alfalfa meal mixed with 40 per cent molasses is the best appe tizer, conditioner, laxative and bone and muscle builder. It is cheaper than bran and far more valuable as horse feed. Feed euch horse and colt as its peculiar need demands, there being no two animals that should be fed ex actly alike. Farmers having their own feed should tiuish their own colts instead of turning them off to the city man to fatten at the profit making age. I f the city man can afford to buy high priced feed to fatten him the farmer surely can afford to do the same when he raises most of his feed. The last pounds added to the mature colt are what bring the money, so put on as many of these last pounds as possible. A scrub mare bred to a scrub stal lion and scrubbily fed will produce the scrubbiest of scrub colts. The scrub mare bred to a good stallion and given proper care will produce a colt that is a slight improvement over her self. I f a strictly first class mare is bred to a splendid horse larger than herself and if she is given proper feed and care only a splendid foal will re- suit. Breed a 1,800 pound mare to a 2,400 pound stallion as good as he is large and the mare should beget a colt that will with good care make a 2,100 pound horse. With extra care and feed it may exceed that. This is the only way that the farmer can ex pect to Increase the size of his draft horses. A H u n ter’s B lu ff By M. QUAD Copyright. 1915, by the McClure N e w s p a p e r Syndicate. lu the spring of the year 1898 a pur- ty of sporting hunters numbering thir ty entered the elbow of Texas between | New Mexico and the Indian territory. While the Comanche Indians were bitterly hostile ut that time they had been sadly reduced by smallpox and driven to the north, and old frontiers men stilted their belief that the party would not even see one. 1 had been invited to make one of the party, but was detaiued for a cou ple of days. I then mounted my horse and picked up the trull und followed after, having no fear that I should run any danger In thus riding. It hail come noon of the second duy, and I had met with no adventure. 1 had baited and watered my horse and was ready to move on, when 1 heard a “ Yl, yi, y i r on my right, and 1 turn ed around to see five Comanche» com ing out of the timber on their ponies. They were Just half a mile away and had evidently discovered me. When a man rides for his life the greatest fear is In overdoing the mat ter. I had been five years on the plains and had a pretty fair stock of nerve, and 1 rode to favor my horse. As the sun began to sink in the west they sought to shorten the dis tance between us and bring me into rifle shot, but a word to the mustang checkmated this. Had I been able to keep the trail aft er 3 o’clock I should have counted on finding the party by sundown, ns we were getting over the ground at a rap id pace, but at about that hour I came to a rough, stony district, where the passage of the horses had left no trail, and I went aheuil at random, planning to keep my distance from the river. It was to be a starlight night, and as soon as dusk came I urged my beast to a faster pace and bore more to the left. When I believed I had gained a quarter of a mile I swerved sharply to the right, rode for forty rods and then dismounted and gave Custer the word to lie down. We were both fiat on the earth wheff the party of pursuers swept by, aud the thud, thud, thud of their ponies’ feet came very plainly to my ears. I had a cold bite In my haversack, and after disposing of it stretched out and went to sleep, hoping l had given the red men the slip. I opened my eyes the next morning in astonish ment. Seated in a circle about me were the five Comanehes, while their ponies were feeding with my horse. 1 lay on my back with my hands clasp ed under my head, and such was my astonishment that I could not move. Fortunately for me they took this for nerve. I looked from man to man. aud finally said In Comanche: “ Had 1 known you were Comanehes I should not have run away. I thought you were Chlekasaws on stolen horses I shall be ready to go as soon as I have eaten. I want to see the Co manche country—the vast plains—the Canadian river— the mountains full of caves and waterfalls—your chief. Thunder Cloud." One of them asked me if I belonged to the party ahead, and I told him no. He asked me how I dared start out alone for the Comanche country, and I told him that I had trapped the inoun tain lion and cut out and eaten his liver while still alive, and therefore feared nothing living. I could see that they were badly puzzled, and I in creased their wonder by saying, as I finished my breakfast: “ Come. It is time to go. W e have a long ride, and I am anxious to see your country.” When we set out two In front and three behind, and no Indians were ever more puzzled. In later years I met one of them and he told me that their plan was to torture me as soon as I awoke. They were beat out of this by my queer remarks, intended Just for that purpose. Several times during the day 1 expressed my impatience at our slow pace and asked them to get on faster, and when we went into camp 1 saw* that I had them off their guard ; After eating I sat apart from them to i smoke and meditate and to give then, ! an opportunity to comimre notes. Just ! when the five got their heads together ! to discuss something they did not wish j me to hear I arose and stepped back ward out of the light of the fire, and I believe l was a hundred feet away when they missed me. I heard them scatter and beat about, and while they were hunting for me I crawled along and got my gun. I crept away from the circle of the fire and then got the shelter of a tree. Tho Indians beat about for a good half hour, and then all came in, chagrined and disgusted. I lifted my gun and took fair aim at the leader. He went down as my rifle cracked and was fol lowed by a second and a third before the surviving two could comprehend what was going on. Neither stopped for his gun. I Rtood guard all night, and when morning came was satisfied that the two who had escaped had no idea of returning. After a scanty breakfast I caught up the six animals, packed up everything of value, and then I headed to the southeast for the river, and at 3 o’olock rode right into the camp of the party, which had settled down for sport and had given me no thought. Next day a party of us rode over to give the bodies a more careful Inspec tion, and we found on each one a sil ver government medal, given themdur ing IJneoln’s first term, ns “ good In dlans.” Notice is hereby given that by di rection of the president of the Coquilie- Coos Coal Company, a corporation, or Hogging Down Corn. ganized and existing under the laws of The Iowa station bulletin 143 found the State of Oregon, a special meeting the practice of hogging down corn of the stockholders o f said corporation is hereby called to be held at the prin profitable.
