YELLOW FRONT IMPROVES
Local Hardware Firm Installs First
Class Gasolene Pump.
Tho BeajTor-Horndon Hardware com
pany has just installed a Bowser "Chic
jSentry' five gallon stroke gasolene
pumpkin front 6l Its' place' of business.
, For "service to the automobile trade,
.this equipment puts the local placo
on n par with the best filling stations
in tho country.
Gasolene can bo pumped through
it, in any quantities, at the rate of
twenty gallons per minute, doing away
with the long waiting and a scale on
tho sido permits one to see exactly
what has been pumped. A hose drain
ing attachment permits all .the gaso
lene to run out of the hose quickly.
1 Of especial interest tb customers
is tho centrifugal fitter which is part
of tho pump. This filter absolutely
! separates all the water from the gaso
lene by the same method that the
cream is separated from milk. Fil
tered gasolene in the car -does away
I with many minor carburetor troubles.
Two Bowser oil cabinets havo been
'placed inside the store near the front
from which lubricating oil can be
J pumped quickly and measured accur

Tho convenient locntion of tho gas
oleno pump, .combined with Its. quick

nccommodntlon to many.whlle the beu.
Ity of the equipment will cause much
favoralilo comment among tourists wtio
