Northwest Auto Company
18th and Alder Streets Portland, Oregon
John C. Hull, secretary and pales
manager of the Friend Manufacturing
Co.. operating one of the nation's larg
est plants for making orchard spray
machinery, declares that Hood River
has sold herself to him as a result of a
visit of a few days here with F. A.
Olmstead and A. B. Bennett, of the
Hood Kiver Spray Co., representatives
of the manufacturing c;oncern.
"Our efforts at tying up in a busi
ness way with Northwestern orchard
districts resulted more last year from
curiosity than anything else," says
Mr. Hull, who is a pioneer in the man
ufacture of spray machinery. "We
thought that the growers of these dis
tricts would tell us that we were too
far away to ship our implements here
and compete with concerns locateed
closer. Hut we have found the North
western grower the most eager of any
in the country to secure efficient ma
chinery and apply scientific methods.
We are glad that we were ruled hy our

spray machine and the first spray gun.
hoth now in universal use in orchard
districts, pays a very high compliment
to Oregon orchardists.
"You growers out here are on a
higher plane than are we fruit men
back in New York state, where I own
orchards. You take as much care of
individual trees as does a stock fancier
of members of his herd of cows or
horses. You know those trees. You
grieve if anything happens to them.
And you can beat us for apples of
quality. You also get a color that we
can never attain. We can only produce
apples that are characterized , chiefly
by their quantity in our eastern com
mercial districts."
Mr. Hull says he sees no reason why
Northwestern growers should not se
cure good prices for their fruit. Apples,
he says, are now selling from New
York orchards at $5 and $( per barrel
and on the Buffalo market, he says,
apples of good, clean quality are
bringing $3 per bushel.
"In view of these prices back
there," savs Mr. Hull, "I cannot see
why you growers of this section, where
the fruit is of such high quality, would
not get excellent figures.
"1 believe that you will eventually
be shipping huge quantities of apples
by water to New York City. Our plant
is located on a barge canal at Gasnort
and we contemplate ultimately ship
ping our machines to the I'acitic coast
by way of the Panama canal."

Since the announcement of Buiek 4
Farl Franz talks of nothing else. In
fact neighbors say he talks about it in
his sleep so loud as to be heard several
houses away.
After seeing the new Buick 4 dis
mantled in Portland at a dealers
meeting, he claims there is nothing
that will touch it as to accessibility
and workmanship.
w iin its long stroKe motor, says
Mr. rranz, 'it acts more like a six
than a four and the way she rides, oh
boy! Just like a Pullman car. The
hing that worries him most is factory
delivery, lhey are selling unsight, un
seen. "We are taking orders and have de
posits on all cars that are coming up
till October 10, while in Portland or
ders were taken for 104 in three days.
In talking with Mr. Lean, manager of
Howard Auto Co., Buick distributors
of Portland, 1 said, 'Why do they buy
this new Buick without ever a look un
der the hood.' 'That's easy,' said Mr.
Dean. 'They know that the Buick
name plate on a car is like the bond
on paper. They take no chance with
that name plate on the car they buy'."

Clipped Here and There
Engine- 24 A. Daily, or every 100
miles, pour fresh Zerolene No. 3 Into
erankcase through filler pipe until oil
level guage on erankcase registers
"full." Avoid overfilling. Best re
sults will be obtained if the oil level is
maintained between "half full" and
"full" marks on the guage. To get a
correct reading of the oil level guage,
the atuomobile should be approximate
ly level and the engine not running.
When engine is running, the oil pre.--
sure Indicator on dash should show-
pressure which will vary with the
speed and temperature of the engine
If no pressure is regisered, the indica
tion is lack of oil in erankcase, oil
pump not working properly, or some
obstruction or break in oil passages.
The engine should immediately be
stopped and the trouble located and
At regular intervals, as recommend
ed by the manufacturer, or, in the ab
sence of such instructions, every 750
miles, the oil in the erankcase reser
voir should M entirely renewed in the
following manner: First, remove
drain plug in bottom of erankcase, al
lowing all old oil to drain. This should
preferably be done when engine is
warm, as the old oil when heated will
drain faster, and less of it will adhere
to the inner surfaces of the erankcase.
Next, replace drain plug and pour four
quarts of Calol Flushing Oil into
erankcase through filler pipe. Then
start and operate the engine under its
own power at moderate idling speed
for from one to two minutes, by which
time all oil passages and inner sur
faces will have been cleansed by the
action of the flushing oil. Again re
move drain plug and when certain that
erankcase is thoroughly drained, re
place plug and refill erankcase reser
voir with fresh Zerolene Oil as speci
fied. Approximately six quarts of oil
are required. Before refilling with
fresh oil, the strainer or screen sur
rounding the oil pump intake should be
removed, thoroughly cleaned and re
placed. When filling the reservoir
through filler pipe, care should be
taken that no foreign matter is carried
into the engine with the fresh oil.

only)- 10, 28. If the cluteh is slipping
because of greasy or gummy condition
of the leather, it should be thoroughly
flushed with Pearl Oil (kerosene.)
With the engine running, the clutch
jtedal should be worked back and forth
to allow the kerosene to cut and dis
lodge this greasy deposit. A small
quantity of Auto Leather Clutch Oil
should then be applied to the leather.
If tne clutch is inclined to grab by
reason of the leather beinir hard or
dry. apply a little Auto Leather Clutch
Oil to the leather. The application of I joints with

points. Further turning of the clutch
cone will distribute the oil evenly over
its entire surface.
Every 1,000 miles remove plug from
clutch core bearing housing and with
grease gun fill interior of housing with
Zerolene Cup Grease.

brication. transmission 30 Y. Every 500
miles remove oil level plug on side of

fresh lubricant to proper level.
Note: As hearings in both trans
mission and rear axle are entirely lu
bricated by splash from revolving
gears, hard grease should never be
used as a lubricant in either place.

"Bill" Doyle, prospector and trap
per, slept in a hotel in Spokane for the
first time in his 07 years, when he en
tered the Coeur d'Alene a few days
ago. It was the first time he occupied
a bed in half a century, according to
"Dutch Jake" Goetz, who drove logs
with him on the Clearwater river 44
years ago.
"He allowed the electric light to
burn all night because of a fear that
something would explode if he touched
it, and on arising climbed from the
second floor fuiiward in an effort to
leave the house," said Mr. Goetz.
"Only when he saw women enter an
elevator did he enter the cage. He
seemed to be mystified on stepping out I
into the lobby.
"Before taking a room he told me
he was going out on the rocks to find a
place to sleep and, knowing him pretty
well, 1 did not try to dissuade him, but
two hours later he returned with his
blankets and the announcement that
'it was too much settled.' Men who
lead the life of a hermit differ from
city folk. They like to be at least half
a mile from the nearest habitation
when they camp.
"Bill recently came down from the
Slocan region and entered the Clear
water country to stake a rich gold
ledge he found 44 years ago, but the
site of the ledge was occupied by a
town and, although he is honest and
square, people looked at him as if he
were a train robber, he told me, so he
left. Bill is six feet two and slender
and can walk 80 to 45 miles a day. He
captured a fawn by outrunning it and
outstripped athletic men in the stam
peue ior the I oeur d Alene region
years ago. He has departed for Ida
ho." Spokane Spokesman-Review.

Chamber directors decided to seek
further details alout the project before
taking any definite action". The matter
