If the lubricating syMeni i in gond
k mhtion and the oil ot the right con
sistency, this protective film will be
automat ica 11 v provided. This applies
to all the surfaces, such as pistons.
cylinder .IU, crank shafts, rod pins,!
bearings, camshaft bearings, push j
rods, push rod guides, and even to tlie:
gears. The 'eeth of the meshing gears!
of course arc not spaced to nib
against each other, but to have sim-j
ply a rolling contact. However, it is
impossible to attain this degree of!
perfection in practice ami a certain '
amount of rubbing does lake place, i
t'ue to the fat t that the teeth can-!
r.ot be scientifically correct. '
The severest test of a lubricating oil '
is ton nd in lubricating the pistonn and
elmier walls, especialh at the upper!
end of the stroke. At the moment of
combustion the temperature is above
.1,(1(1(1 degrees Fareiihcit, and both j
pistons and cylinder walls arc exceed-
ingly hot; therefore it is necessary to
use an oil which will stand this teni-;
perature, neither vaporizing nor burn- j
If the oil is too thin or has a I
tendency to vaporize or hunt, these 1
high surfaces will be improperly lubri- '
cated, increased friction will result,
and finally the film of oil may disap-1
pear entirely, with the result that rub-!
bing between the two .surfaces will
occur and the parts shortly will be j
ruined. There also is a possibility,
when the piston becomes iieated that j
it will expand until it tills the cylinder
bore and becomes sealed.
If the oil is not clean, if it contains
grit or dirt of any sort, it will rapidly
wear away the metal parts, the grit
acting as an abrasive. Oil is liable to
contain not only grit and free carbon,
but also a certain amount of gasoline,
and in many cases water. The
gasoline thins the oil. making it in
capable of resisting the pressure be
tween the rubbing surfaces, and w'car
1 increases'. Water may form an enuit
1 sum ami produce t!:- same effect,
while tn winter there is always some
danger of the water freezing am!
producing a stoppage of the lubricat
ing system. As many men neglect to
fill the oil reservoir often enough, it
is a good plan to make a rule of doing
it every day. so that there will be very
little chance of the car lu-iiiR run tor
seeral days without adding oil.
The moment the sight teed show s
thai the oil is not circulating fast
enough the tt ouhle should be found
heiore the car is run anv further. Il
this is not done there is danger of the
surfaces going dry and becoming
burned out, and scored bearings will
be the result. Keep your oil tank
Idled and be sure the lubruatmg sys
tem is working properly. If you use
too little oil your ear will suffer; if
too much you are liable to "smoke"
and lay jourself open, in the cities,
at bast, to arrest.
I he grtalesi abuse ol the lubricat
ing system, however, does not occur
in the motor, bt:t in the other parts
ot the car. The majority of owners
aie educated lo lubricating the motor,
but ihey often have ihe rest of the
car until it actually complains. A
great many drivers consider that so
long as the car lasts it will continue
f run and that it does not need atlen
tion of any sort whatsoever. Kxamin
tion ol the cars in garages in arioiis
part s o the count ry show s that
gi case cups, gear boxes and differ
enhals Lu k attention. In particular,
of course, is this true of gear boxes,
because they are inaccessible and it is
a disagreeable task to screw them
It is better to use too much grease
than too little Many of the parts
will apparently run indefinitely with
out it. and many owners will form
the impression that the grease cups
were put on merely for ornament, but
they will pay for their neglect in the
end, because the inattention will re
sult in the wearing out ot these parts
faster than they should. The spring
bolts, steering gear and connections
soon become loose and rattle dis
agreeably when they are not properly
supplied with grease. On the other
hand, when they are well lubricated
they should last almost indefinitely.
Wheel Bearings Need Attention.
When the gear box is tight it is
rarely necessary to add grease, but it
is not safe to assume that the grease
wilt last forever, and a good rule is
to inspect it once a month, for some
times the grease disappears more
rapidly, due to a small, unnoticed leak
or because the grease is of poor qual
ity. When the grease becomes very
low it is usually noticeable by a noise
in the gear box, while, on the other
hand, the gear box may hum if too
much lubrication is used.
The wheel bearings should be
greased every month or so, for, al
though they may run for a year with
out complaining, their life will be con
siderably shortened. It is better and
more satisfactory to use plenty of
grease on all these parts. The fact
that the steering gear uses very little
grease does not mean that it should
be neglected, and the grease cup that
is located on tho housing should be
frequently filled and screwed down.
Magneto and starting and lighting
generator bearings are invariably of
:he ball type and require very little
lubrication. With the former it is
sufficient to use two or three drops of
light oil, while the latter may require
grease or oil. The fact that the oil
holes may be somewhat difficult to
find is no reason for neglect and worn
or badly injured parts will result if
they are not lubricate.
To run the motor with a lack of oil
or with a cooling system out of com
mission is absolutely suicidal, and the
effect in both cases is usually the same

It is not difficult to distinguish definite difference be"een Saxon
"Six" and other cars of like price. It is perceptibly easier riding;
it clings more closely to the road ; runs more sweetly and quietly ;
accelerates faster; requires less gasoline to the mile; is sparing of
oil and easy on tires; develops a smoother power-flow; and is far
freer of repairs and adjustments. It is commonly conceded to be
the fine car of its price class.
It is very satisfying to feel the eager ease with which
Saxon "Six" leaps to full flight in response to the merest
pressure of the accelerator. It will go from a standing
start to 45 miles per hour in less than 24 seconds if you
demand it. And if you desire to just idle along, it will
run noiselessly at a mile and a half per hour on high.
The motor is of the light-weight, high-speed six-cylinder
type, of Saxon design, manufactured to Saxon specifica
tions by the Continental Motor Company. The price of
Saxon "Six" is $815, f. o. b. Detroit.

Cause Youths to
Steal, Say Mothers
Exciting motion pictures portray

minds of a trio of youthful burglars
who appeared before Judge V. (i.
Sears in juvenile court, according to
the testimony of the mothers of (. liar
lev Hoffman, aged ; I. vie King, aged
12. and Harry Maslock. aged 11. The
bos frankly admitted 1 Judge Scais
that they had each broken into stores.
oneH'nteriug through a rear window,
while others had pilfered cigarettes,
candy ami cookies, t barley, a mere
handful of humanity, was paroled to
his parents, while I.yle King was com
mitted to the Riverview home until
school begins. He carries a suspended
sentence to the industrial school at
Kearney. The case against the Hav
lock lad was continued for a week to
enable Probation Officer Cus Miller
to further investigate testimony in
criminating other boys who are mem
bers of the same gang.
Johnny Duncan needs something
more than fresh air to cure him of
stealing from 10-eent stores and from
grocers' wagons, according to the ad
vice of Judge Sears when he paroled
him to his parents after a flock of
good promises tor future behavior.
Probation Officer Miller recom
mended that the boy be examined by
a specialist with a view of curing his
apparent desire to steal. "Me an' me
pal, Robert Anderson, hooked a musk
inelon from a wagon," was the sole
defense of the lad. Hob Anderson, a
bright-eyed lad of 10 years, was pa
roled to his mother.
