Tires become weakened and blow out when the treads are but par
tially worn out Rim-Grip Sub-Casings overcome this trouble as
they add new strength to that part of the tire that has be
come weakened by use. They are built practically the
same, as the carcass or fabric portiorr of the tire and are trie only reliners
that can be placed on a rim and inflated without the support of the outer
tire. This is sufficient proof that when inside the tire fhey will carry a
large portion of the strain and prevent the tire from bursting.

Sub-Casing in place Inside tire.
The metal bands which are
vulcanized into the edges of the
sub-casing are made In a coni
cal form and shaped to He flat

of the tire. They are continu

around the rim, thus holding
the edges of the sub-casing se
curely in place. This feature in
addition to holding the presure
of the inflated tube, prevents
the sub-casing from creeping

"Dear Uncle Sam," wrote a girl from
New York state recently, addressing
the United States government at Wash
ington, "I have read In the Georgia
paper my grandma sent me how you
teach the girls down south to make some
money on their tomatoes, and the boys
how to raise corn. Don't you think you
had ought to teach us up here, too, I
sun a little northern girl, but would 1 ke
to make some money just the same." "
, This letter found its way to the
Bureau of Farm Management of the
Department of Agriculture,' with one
from a boy In the far northwest, who
wanted to know why the government
authorities did not organize a Boys' Corn
club in his eommulty. His cousin In
Texas, this boy wrote, had sent him
a letter telling about the corn club to
which he and his schoolmates belonged,
and about a trip which the young com
growers were going to make to Wash
ington. These letters were typical of hundreds
which children In northern and north
western states were writing to the De
partment of Agriculture. , The news
papers and carried into northern homes
the story of what Boys' Corn clubs and
Girls' Canning and Poultry clubs the
latter established throughout the south
by the government with funds donated
by the General Education Board of New
York City were accomplishing for the
young people of the cotton-ralslng states.
Preachers, teachers and parents in the
north joined with the children in de
manding that, similar club work be
established by the Department of Agri
culture in their part of the country.
They also wrote their representatives in
congress urging these to ask the depart
ment for the organization of corn and
canning clubs in the north and northwest
Initial Steps. i
Thus it has come about that the
United States government is now tak
ing the Initial steps toward teaching
the boys of the thirty-six non-cotton
raising states how to grow corn and
the girls how to raise and can vege
tables, and also how to raise poultry.
The young peoples' club work, begun
experimentally In the south nearly two
years ago, became a national movement
on July 1 of the present year, when it
was extended to Include the children of
the northern. New England and north
western states. The general plan of or
ganization is the same throughout the
country, though modified to meet the
needs of each particular region. In the
south, for instance, the membership of
the corn and canning clubs la confined
almost entirely to the boys and girls
of the rural districts, whose parents own
or rent large tracts of land. But in Mew
England, the work will assume the form
of backyard gardening. In northern and
northwestern states, where agricultural
methods are advanced, and farms are
small and highly cultivated, the govern
ment agent's task will be to specialize
on intensive cultivation.
Local C-operatlon.
The government workers have secured
the co-operation of the rural and vlllag
school teachers in these states as a first
step toward reaching children and pa
rents. The requisites for membership in
the clubs are simple. No dues are re
quired, no pledges are asked. The boys
who join the corn clubs, and the. girls
who become members of canning and
Iioultry clubs must be between the ages
of 10 and 18. They must agree to cul
tivate their corn or tomato patches, or
to experiment in poultry raising, accord
ing to the Instructions which they shall
receive from the Department of Agri
culture, to make frequent reports on the
progress of their work, and to co-operate
with the department and its agents for
the length of one year.
For the work of the boys' corn clubs
cne acre of ground is taken as the
basic of operation, and for the girls'
tomato patches a tenth of one acre is
deemed sufficient, tt Is understood with
the parents that the children shall have
and spend in any way they may desire
all the money earned from their ven
tures. The government agent and bis
assistants will give instruction to the club
members throughout the year, paying
personal visits to the homes and garden
plots of the boys and girls.
The Spar of Prises.
To ' add to the interest of the club
work, prizes and premiums for quality
and quantity of the output from corn and
tomato patches will be solicited by the
department agents from the merchants,
bankers, commercial clubs, and wo
men's organizations of every com
munity. And to meet the local needs
of the community, various contests will
bo encouraged in connection with the
raising of corn and vegetables, There
will be potato-growing contests, good
roads contests and seed-testing con
tests for the boys, with sewing, bread
baking, and other contests for the

Is an open book, surmounted by a four
leaf clover. On each of the clover
leaves Is the letter H. Thesmeanlng of
the emblems on the label, as explained
to the boys and girls in letters sent out
to club members by the Department of
Agriculture, is as follows:
"The tomato signifies., the relation of
the garden products to a happy and con
tented citizenship. uThe book, as a
background, signifies the need of edu
cation and a definite knowledge on farm
and home interests in order to make for
better rural life. The four-leaf clover
represents the principles of scientific
farming and gardening, soil building, and
large production, and greater profits for
the common people. The four H's rep
resent the equal training of the heart,
head, hands, and health of every child."
Warship Piling Up Accident Record
Rivaling; the Ill-Fated
"Naval officers are guessing whether
the United States battleship Nebraska,
which ran upon an uncharted shoal a
short time ago, is going to take the place
of the ill-fated Taxas, later named the
San Marcos, which was the 'hoodo'
ship of the navy," remarked Captain I
L. Darby, a retired naval officer, at the
Wlllard. "Ill luck pursued the Texas
almost from the beginning, and tt seemed
that it was never out of trouble during
all the time it was in commission, except
at the battle of Santiago, where it did
great work.
"Before the Spanish-American war the
Texas, while being overhauled at the
Brooklyn navy yard, was sunk, because
the yokes of its sea cocks were broken
in the course of repairs, and the water
poured in just as if the boat had been
scuttled. The Texas sank, as everybody
knows, and was raised as soon as pos
sible. It was on that occasion that Cap
tain 'Jack' Phillips, one of the bravest
and best naval officers, by the way, that
ever trod a bridge, had some fun with
'Fighting Bob' Evans, at that time com
manding the Iowa. When the Texas
was raised It was found that in the hull
were thousands of eels that had been
sucked through the open' sea cocks.
Knowing Captain Evans' fondness for
eels, Phillips had a lot of them sent over
to the Iowa. He was somewhat surprised
a day later to receive a note of acknowl
edgment from his brother officer, which
read: 'The eels were fine. Jack; sink
it again.'
"It was Jack Phillips, you may re
member, who, after the great naval bat
tle at Santiago, when the Spanish bat
tleships were lying on the shores of Cuba
smoking from the shot of the American
ships, solemnly said to his men: 'Don't
cheer, boys; the poor devils are dying.'
"Jack Phillips was one of the bravest,
and at the same time most religious,
naval officers I ever knew. He was the
direct opposite of 'Bob' Evans, but the
(wo were great friends. The Texas, you
know, was afterward named the San
Marcos, and was the target for gun prac
tice a few months ago. It was a fitting
end for a good old ship that had always
been in bard luck, except at the time
when It was most needed. I say, I won
der if the Nebraska is going to take the
place of the Texas as the hoodoo ship
of the navy?" Washington Post.

"It seems so strange to us, you know,"
the American traveler was saying, "when
your people tpeak of the 'honorable um
brella,' the 'honorable teacup,' the hon
oi able scissors,' and the like."
"Yes," said his educated Japanese host:
"to your unaccustomed ears it must
sound so mucn moie absurd tnan 'happy
accident,' 'giate.ui warmth,' or g:ad uu

The prompt action of an unknown
woman probably saved the life of James
Dickenson, 60, of Irvlngton-on-the-Hud-son,
when he fell from the running board
of a northbound Eighth avenue surface
car In New York City. , His right leg was
severed below the knee , by the wheels.
As the car crew and several of the pas
sengers were for a telephone to send in
an ambulance call an automobile came
along. A young woman jumped from the
machine and pushed her way to the in
jured man. v
"Why, he's bleeding to death," she ex
claimed. "Hasn't someone a rope?" -
Then the handsomely gowned woman
bent down and tore a portion of her
petticoat in strips. While bystanders held
the unconscious man's leg she made a
tourniquet, clamping the petticoat ban
dages with a stick.
Having the victim placed in her auto,
she ordered the chauffeur to drive to the
Flower hospital. When the automobile
reached Seventy-seventh street and Cen
tral Park West the ambulance was met
and the Injured man transferred. -
Without waiting to give her name the
woman climbed in the machine and was
off. New York World.
