PERSONAL AND MISCELLANEOUS - (Continued) leaking with the consequent destruction of carpets, rugs, and hardwood floors.
The opening and closing of the valves is effected by giving the handle a halfturn. This feature will doubtless be appreciated by users of old-style valves. The lever handle can be operated by the foot as well as by the hand. The bonnets of these valves are interchangeable with the bonnets of the old-style Crane radiator valves, so that users may equip their old valves with the new device at any time.
Graphoil Lubricators The use of flake graphite for lubrication has been favorably known for many years; but heretofore its general use has been restricted, because there has been no convenient method of applying it. To overcome this difficulty, the Dixon Crucible Company has produced a new type of lubricator, which it is believed, will solve the problem of the proper application of graphite to bearings.
In this new lubricator, oil is used, which passes over a mass of graphite; and during its passage the oil takes up a portion of the graphite, carrying it to the part to be lubricated. The amount of graphite carried by the oil varies according to the amount of oil which flows.
As the lubricators have no moving parts, they are extremely simple in construction; and their use will be found economical, as they not only effect a considerable saving in oil, but also prevent excessive wear of the moving parts by the use of graphite.

This is the Pierce Great Arrow, 28-32 H. P. with straight tonneau body, cape top and folding glass front. · Price without top or glass front, $4,000. Cape top, $200 extra. Folding glass front, $50 extra.
One convincing proof of the excellence of Pierce cars is the fact that they appeal most to the most mechanical minds. An automobile is a machine. The more a man understands about the principles of mechanics, the better he appreciates the way in which the Pierce Arrow is made. • The initial cost of a Pierce Arrow is greater than that of any automobile made in this country, but the price seems low when compared, not only with the small cost of maintaining, but with the long time of service given.
Pierce Arrows are never out of date as far as effective service is concerned.
