HOW TO REMEDY
Backfiring One of the Most
Common Troubles With
CAUSES OF MOTORIST WOES
How many times have you driven
up to a garage with the car jerking
and bucking, asking, as you enter, for
a good mechanic who knows some
thing about a carburetor? Some
times you drive away with a smll
and sometimes you cry vengeance for
the mechanic who sent you away
without fixing up the trouble.
Whenever a car develops a sudden
illness the carburetor is invariably the
first object of attack, for even if the
carburetor is not the direct source of
trouble it is the victim of the averaRC
driver. When the trouble is actually
elsewhere the poor carburetor has to
worry along with its new adjustment,
be it good, bad or indifferent. A few
hints may help you to solv serious
road trouble, even if the car refuses
One of the most common carbu
retor troubles is backfiring, according
to G.i O. Reynolds, in Motor Life.
Let us assume that after the car has
been driven several miles you reach
a nice stretch of road in the country
and are tempted to open her up a bit.
Everything is lovely, the speedometer
reads . thirty-five miles an hour, and
you are about to skim the top ot a
long hill, when, much to your disgust,
you hear a muffled pop under the
hood.- The carburetor makes a loud.
though short, spitting sound at the
same time. You are forced to slow
down, and although the car picks up
again Jt will Derform the same way
on the next long hill. To the experi
enced, driver this means too lean 1
mixture at high speeds and the trou
ble can surely be remedied by open
ing the gasoline needle valve a little
more, or, it the car has a jet, by sub
stituting a larger jet.
bhould the carburetor backfire in
this manner when the car is being
driven at a slow speed and no recent
adjustments have ben made, the lack
of gas may be caused by a partial
stoppage in the gasoline line or jet
The presence of even a small quan
tity of water in the gasoline will cause
a decided popping and spitting in the
carburetor. Water will entirely shut
off the gasoline, which it displaces as
the drop of water passes through the
jet This condition will sometimes
be very apparent when quickly accel
crating the motor even if the car is
Sticking Valves. .
Since the average car of today it
provided with a choking device for
cutting off air where admitted to the
carburetor, this meant of enriching
the mixture should be tried to prove
to your satisfaction that the trouble
it caused by a stoppage in the sys
tem rather than by a mixture con.
dition. This will prevent needless
tampering with the carburetor.
Other causes of backfiring often
confused with carburetor trouble may
be attributed to an intake valve stick
ing open. This permits the exhaust
gaset to leak into the inlet man iiold
caburetor. This often sets the gasoline,
thus blown out, on tire. I his condition
may be apparent when the car is
running idle, as well as at any speed
on the road. Placing the spark plug
wirea on the wrong ptugt will cause
explosions to take place in the cylin
ders when the intake valves are open
and the same results may follow.
While not so common as the above,
poor distributor conditions in your
igniiion (uni, oe 11 Dauery or mag
neto, might cause a spark to jump
across the distributor so as to fire
a charge of gat in two cylinders at
once, the one with the inlet valve

by lack of power in the engine, even
if it be firing perfectly' on all its cylin

smoke is a certain sign of too much
gasoline, and if the fumes be confined
in a room without ventilation smart
ing of the eyes and tears will result.
Watch out for this black smoke and
avoid the small, unventilated garage,
for death has resulted in several cases
from inhaling these fumes of imper
fect combustion, This caution may
be entirely ignored when out in the
open. Do not confuse, blue-gray
smoke, a sign of excessive lubrication,
with the distinctly black smoke from
a rich mixture.
Late ignition will also rob a car sf
its power. Be sure that the leather
coupling in the magneto drive has
not stretched and that the breaker

lever is advanced. These points
should be noted before you change
your carburetor. Closely akin to a
rich mixture in the flooding carbu
retor. Here again dirt generally causes
the trouble. Grit or waste (no one
seems to know where it comes from)
often lodges under the needle valve,
preventing the shutting off of the
gasoline, which will leak out as soon
as the float chamber has become filled.
The function of a float is to shut
off the gasoline when it has reached
its proper level in the carburetor. If
the float leaks it will not shut off
the gasoline and flooding certainly
will result. If you suspect the float
of leaking remove it and shake it to
see if any gasoline is inside. Assum
ing that your float leaks and that you
wish to find the hole, submerge the
float in hot water. This will expand
the air in the float and air bubbles
will rise from the hole, even if it
be invisible to the eye. Enlarge the
hole to drain out the gasoline and
A large percentage of the new cars
are equipped with vacuum tanks, and
in tpite of the fact that they have
many troubles in common with a
carburetor, they are excellently filling
a long-felt want.
Here again look out for a leaky float
and for dirt. If the float in the
vacuum tank leakt it will not rise
to the point necessary to shut off the
-air suction which creates the vacuum.
You tear along at a high tpeed for
several miles, but in the meantime

PROBLEMS OF ITALY
AFTER WAR CLOSES
Reclamation of Land, Improv

Better Means for Trans
(Correipond.no. of Th Aaioclated Preu.)
Rome, April 30. The prosperity of
Italy after the war depends upon the
solution of three great engineering
problems, in the opinion .of . Prof.
Luigi Luiggi, president of the Italian
Society of Civil Engineers. These
problems, he stafed in an address
here this week, are: The reclama
tion of marsh lands, the irrigation of
semi-arid tracts and the more com
plete utilization of water power, espe
cially in the production of chemical
fertilizers for the soil.
The ch:ef interest of the United
States in Professor Luiggi's program
is found in his statement that it will
require large sums of foreign capital,
some of which Italy hopes to draw
from America. '
During the last five years of
peace, said Professor Luiggi, "nearly
700,000 of the best elements of our
rural population left their native vil

The Hague, Netherlands, April 30.
The interview of the self-styled coun'
cil of Flanders with the German
chancellor, Dr. von Bithmann-Holl-
weg, with the chancellor's proclama
tion of a forthcoming autonomous
Flanders in a dual Belgium, is being
eagerly discussed in all its aspects in
Belgium, Holland and Germany.
The idea, as defined by Dr. Frans
van Cauwelaert, one of the best
known Flemish leaders, is to'split up
Belgium into two administrative units

Divide on Languages.
The German press argues that it
will be comparatively easy to carry
through the proposed separation of
tne riemisn and f rench-speaking ooo-
uations, tne language frontier having
pcrsisiea ior i.uuu years.
With virtually unanimous voice the
Flemish and other Belgian leaders in
Holland join in mercilessly condemn
ing the deputation that thus went to
the capital of the . enemy of their
king and countrv. Several well-
know Flemings hail the event as for
tunate in that it reveals the nature of
the "activist" group that has been co
operating with the Oermans and stig
matize their action as "high treason."
"Permanent dependence of our
Flemish people on Germany would be
token the slow but certain loss of our
languages, our economical indeoend
ence and our hereditary liberties,"
declares Dr. van Cauwelaert, who is
a Catholic member of the Belgian
chamber, while Arthur Buysse, lib
eral member of the chamber, says:

"Not long ago a man came to me who
was nearly half a century old and askedme
to give him a preliminary examination for

as full of vigor, vim and vitality as a young
man; fn fact a young man he really was,
notwithstanding his age. The secret, he said,

him with renewed life. At 80 he was in bad

"Iron Is absolutely necessary to enable
your blood to change food into living tissue.
Without it, no matter how much or what you
eat, your food merely passes through you
without doing you any good, and as a conse
quence you become weak, pale and, sickly
looking, just like a plant trying to grow in
a soil deficient in iron. If you are not strong
or well you owe it to yourself to make the
following test: aee now long you can work
or how far you can wak without becoming
tired, next take two live-gram tablets ot
ordinary nuxated iron three timea per day
after meals for two weeks. Then test your
strength again and see how much you have
gained. I have seen dotens of nervous, run
down people who were ailing all the while
double their strength and endurance and en
tirely rid themselves of all symptoms of
dyspepsia, liver and other troubles in from
ten to fourteen days' time simply by taking
iron In the proper form. And this after they
had in some cases been doctoring for months
without obtaining any benefit. But don't take
the old forms of reduced iron, iron acetate
or tincture of Iron simply to save a few
cents. The Iron demanded by Mother Nature
