the care of automobile tires.
The largo percentage of tire trou

1 tained at 20 pounds per Inch
!of tiro diameter. Thus, a four-inch
tire should have a pressure of 80
pounds. The boating of tho tiro
when in use. should not be dopondod
upon to increase tho air pressure
sufficiently if it is much less than
that required rt tin time of starting.
There is little danger of having
too high a' pressure un a new tire, as
every averaged sized tiro is te3tcd to
200 pounds before Doing sold.
.. If tires are old, Judgment must bo
used in maintaining tho normal
pressure. If two strands of tho fab

20 pounds per inch of diameter may

keeping moisture out of the cracks

described in tho Journal of the
American Medical Association:
"It is an acute, highly infectious
disease, which occur; chiefly In cat
tle, sheep, goats and swine, though
other animals such as the horse and i
dog, as well as certain wild animals,
are attacked also, and it may affect
human beings. In animals it is
characterized especially by tho erup
tion of vesicles in tho mouth and
on tho feet.
"In cattle the incubation period
averages from three to five days,
whereupon a moderate fever with
loss of appetite and other general
symptoms sets in. In two or three
days small bljsters appear on the lin
ing of the mouth, and now tho fever
usually subsides. At the same time
one or more feet may show tender
ness and swelling of the skin, soon
vescicles foVn here also and tho ani
mal goes lame.
"Usually the milk is altered and
reduced in quantity; blisters and ul
cers may form on tho udder. There
