Matters of
Importance to the Man W ho Runs a Car
Will slightly rotating the poppet
valves of a motor prevent the valves
from improperly seating and carbon
from forming on the valve seats?
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.
this reason before using any prepara­
tion It should be known that it is in
tended particularly for radiators and
nothing else.

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

gas Is that It is much more expensive
than gasoline.

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.
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

A H u n ter’s B lu ff
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
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
