OFFER INROAD
CONTRACrCASE
ONLY A JOKE
Victoria, February -M.-r-The latest
sensation sprung in legislative circles was a statement
made to the -public accounts comlmtlttee by Hon. Or. Sutherland yet-terday, to 'the effect that a young man named
Gibbons had attempted to blackmail A. B. Palmer &
Co., by offering lor a consideration to induce R. H. Pooley
to "lay off" inquiries into the Palmer company accounts
—petered out i'u. lahighter when the parties concerned appeared before the com-itfittee this morning and told their
stories on oath.
The affair blew up when J. T. Rainford, accountant of
the contracting firm to whom the alleged blackmail proposition was supposed to have been put, stated that Gibbons inthe course of a long conversation on various subjects, had offered, because tiie firm had been good to him
(he had (been In Its em-ploy) to write to Mr. Pooley and
ask him, to go light in his inquiries a week later had said
he had so written.
No suggestion of any consideration hod at any time
been suggested, and the entire matter had been, i'nsofar
as the conversation was concerned, iu a jocular vein.
Gibbons, following upon the stand, denied emlphatir
call having ever mentioned 'Mr. Pyooley's name or having ever written him or spoqen with him. He had regarded the talk as merely a friendly exchange of "cd-b-
versatlonal pleasantries, and had thought no more of it
untl ithe press carries stories of the all-bged attempted
blackmail.
80 obvious was it that no serious element was present
that the conimllttee dismissed  the Matter with levity.

The Publications of the
Department of Agriculture
By J. B 8PENCER, B.8.A.
The department of agriculture is by far the largest
publisher In the federal service, each year Issuing scores
of publications that are eagerly sought after by the farmers, gardeners, and others whs are Interested in agriculture...The. department .has .been doing this for many
years, recording the results of ita discoveries and activities for the guidance and help of the rural population
and the urban consumer. Almost every phase of agrlcul
tural Interest Is dealt with in the publications, which exceed Ave hundred distinct books, bulletins .and pamphlets.. .The titles of these are given in the printed lists
whioh are always available from the director of publicity
of the department. I
The Hon. Mr. Motherwell, minister of agriculture, has
announced in his latest report that 350.000 farmers and
others were served by the publications branch during the
year ended last March. The distribution amounted to
about three and a halt million copies of bulletins, pairfph-
lets and reports. Mr. Motherwell makes it clear that
the demand for such Information as the publications
contain lis Increasing year by year and was 25 per cent
heavier Jn the. year undor review than ln the pretllous
twelve months.
The farmers of Canada are happily situated in not being confronted with problems that they cannot get help
to solve. 'From' one end of the Dominion to the other
experimental farms are operated for the special purpose
of solving farmi probletme. in provinces that vary wide
ly ln soil and other natural condlUtlons. experimental
farmu are so placed as to moot the needs growing out of
these variations. Nor its It expected that all the farmers
III the country will visit these ifarmp .to And out what
should be done to improve their farming practices. Such
an expectation would be unreasonable, and bo, not only
the plans of the experiments but also the lessons they
teach are published ln the annual reports ot the dl erent
farms and stations for distribution to all who may ask
for them. When a line of work is advanced far enough
to reach definite conclusions the information Is-brought
out in abulletin or pamphlet in such readable form as to
be easily followed.
Perhaps no other country enjoys a wider range in \fi*.

stock, whether it be horses and cattle.hogs tind sheep,
poultry, foxes or rabbits, the department of ogriculture
has worked on its problems and' its publications branch
Is daily giving out in bulletins and reports information

- dom, whether lt is grain, 'fodder crops, apples and other
traits, roots and salad crops, or the tobacco that soothes
the tired brain, definite answers to troublesome problems
are being dally issued to seekers after qnowledge.
Insects and hisease pests are more numerous and more
destructive than the casual observer can believe, and

ment. The mfeans of combatting these foes are carefully
recorded and published for the informlat'ion of the crop
grower. Half a hundred different bulletin*, and paraph
lets on insects and plant dfiseases cober a wide range of
crop enemies, and at.no time in the history of the department has its entomological and botanical staffs been
more active 'in e orts to subdue crop pests. -   ,'
For forty years the department of agriculture has been
engaged in increasing the quantity and improving the
quality of our agricultural production and 1n devising
the most economical methods of transferring products
from the arm to the consumer and ofdelivering them in
the best possible condition. By creating new and more
adaptable wheats and other grains the department bas
pushed bacq more the northern limits of successful cropping by hundreds of- moles, taking In millions of fertilt
acres and affording happy homes to settlers who would
free themselves from the throng and clatter and competition of   more populous centers.
The story of the world-famous Marquis wheat and how
it has brought many millions of dollars to our farmers
has loften been told. The effort to produce better varieties is continuing more earnestly than ever, and great
though Marquis is, Ht stands in a fair wap of being superseded by Garnet, a new variety developed at tbe experimental farm, productive as Marquis and maturing earlier. This wonderful new wheat has, by its performance
in the flour mill and in the fbakeshop, aroused great interest, and within a few weeks a bulletin will be issued
which will (-live a full account of its characteristics and
merits. The publications branch will mail this bulletin
promptly to any applicast.
Alfalfa ls a hrop of the greatest value in the feeding of
live stock and adds much to the profit of the dairyiny
industry, for a long time It was found in mnny parts of
Canada difficult to grow It successfully. But a campaign
of instruction carried on bp the department through its
vublications and otherwise, and development bp the seed
branch and other agencies of an amr.'V- sup-pip of hardy
and vigorous Beed, have increased our crc~ of that useful fodder from 238,000 acres in 19p0 858*000 acres in 1926
Pamphlets on the growing ot alfalfa may be obtained
from the publications branch and also available there are
many revorts and bulletins telling of other achievements
in the way of growing suveiftor seeds for domestic requirements and export!. ,

the Associated Growers. 	
The agriculturaT'commlttee of the house first sat for a
hearing on' the proposed legislation, all factions being

the resolution of the recent Kelowna convention, wide
enough to enable' any" other group of producers of

upon conditions aiid by" authority to be approved hereafter by the committee.
A committee was then appointed representing all fruit

tlie resolution just mentioned, also the resolution passed
at the Kelowna convention, and the 22 points agreed .
upon by the Associated Growers and independent shippers, before the representative of the attorney general'!

Ten there is the truit branch of the department that
devotes its energies chiefly in assisting tihe transportation andmarketing of fruits and vegetables.,This branch
has also taken mpasures to popularize the apple. Their
bulletin "Canadian Home Grown Apples," which carries
the motto, "Delight In Every pBlte'" contains recipes tor
all kinds of dapple pies, puddings-relishes and hundred
and one other delicacies that can be made with apples.
The department of agriculture has done much for th»
tllvestock industrp. By the introduction and distribution
of purebred livestock, the grading up of flocks and herds
by the use of purebred sires, and by experimental work in j
feeding and management, the standard ot our livestock,
whether it be horses, cattle, or swine* has been greatly
improved. The results of thiB work has been placed at
the disposal of the farming community In many reports
and bulletins,^A bulletin on.->the breeding and feeding of
the market hog contains'the results of, many years of investigations'into the methods of producing pork products
of'the highest quality. :,,:■,        ,-,,.
The regulations governing the construction, maintenance and operation of poblir. stockyards in Canada are
enforced by the livestock branch, which in this connec
tion -maintains a bureau of general livestocq and meat
trade Information, and issues through the publications
branch weekly and monthly statements on market prices
and the livestock supply and demand.
Thousands of peovle not only on farms but In cltles-j
and villages are interested In vonttry.,The reports of the
egg laying contests and of the Canadian record of -performance of vurebred voultry tell of great progress in
breeding birds for high eg** production, give rules antl
regulations, and volnt out how to enter the contest or
have birds registered.
Today Canada hits the most adbanced voultry breed
Ing and marketing methods In the world.,Slnoe our system of egg grading, devised and administered by the department, became effective afew years ago the annual
consumption of eggs in Canada has increased from 16 to
26 doien ver cavlta. Formerly when the housewife
bought eggs she was byno means sure of getting good
ones. The overcoming of this uncertainty has mnde the
difference. The .working outof our grading system is
explained in different pamplets distributed by the ppbli
cations branch. Especially should the bulletin Poultry
Feeds and-Feeding be possessed by every one who keeps
chlckens.,Those interested In turkeys, ducks or geese
may also get what information they require.
Were time availalble a tale of engrossing interest might
be told about the% department is doing in improving the
dairy industry. Canadian butter., and cheese as well as
eggs, apples and bacon could never han gained the popularity they tmJoy On the British market without the intervention of the department in seeing to It that these
products, are carried on trains and steamships under
proper conditions of cleanliness and temperature. This
service iB carried out by the dairy ahd cold storage
branch, which also enforces a highly elective inspection
and grading system. The branch has published pamphlets .and bulletins oh all phases of dairy practices, covering, for example, the proper care of milk, modern
methods of making cheese and butter, and making the
best possible use of milk and cream and other dairy-
It was not until the drafted bill was presented to the
growers and shippers that any apparent difference of
opinion was expressed. However, as soon as it was
discovered that the bill provided for the incorporation
of a Committee of Direction with statutory powers,
those representing the independent shippers took ex-
ceptionr-on the grounds thut this was not the intention
of the resolution (passed by the Kelowna convention,
but that the Federation should be the body incorporated
under the Act and that the Committee of Direction
should be under the control of the Federation.
, An amendment along these lines was drafted and
placed before the Agricultural Committee, but they were
convinced iu their own minds that that was not the interpretation, and tliey rejected the unu'iidment, deciding
that the control should remain with the Comlnittee ot
Direction. Thereupon the independents left Victoria,
leaving Mr. Fmch only to represent them.
-Reference is made in the bill to the Federation, so
that before the bill could be presented hi the House, it,
was necessary for the Federation to be brought into being. Representatives of the > Associated Growers approached Mr.'Finch, requesting him to assist in the in-

story of Coniuoran, whom later Jack-tlie-FJant-Killor slew,

boys who lobed that story long ago.
We may follow the coast line eastward and southward
to the Lizard, passing the great wireless station upon
Poldhu. or cut across the little neck of land to Falmouth,
a very fair harbor, Megavisspy, beyond, is but a fishing
port, where pilchards somjttimes become sardines; but
Fowey, to which we next come, has considerable past Importance and present pride.
Eastward from Fowey upon the coast. In a cleft so narrow, so Jagged, so rocky one wonders why men chose it
for a home, lies Polperro.the most picturesque.the most
unspoiled of Cornish fishing poits, retaining all its ancient dignity of life and labor unlluttered by the summer villas now beginning to crowd the cli s above its
head.
Polperro is a fishing town but 't did not always depend
upon fish for a li'ving. In the days when smuggling was
a profession, if not an art. Polperro had few rivals, and
reading old tales, one sees quite clearly why men chose
-these clefts for habitations. Conveniently near are coves
and caves, undiscoverable by tbe keenest customs officers, and boatmen could soil in and out of these narrow
rock-bound harbors fearing no pursuit.
Let us look attentively at Polperro, at Its closely huddled houses, built on and In and of the rock; us roses
and fuchsias and clematis, which bloom as luxuriantly
as in southern climes; for these rock clefts are sheltered from winter winds and wanned by the southern sun;
at its little rock-bound gleaming harbor, wbere at blgh
tide the boats rock lazily and at low water a thousand
silvery gulls pick up their dainty feet in the ooze; at Its
steep.I sipperycllsfs, whence one has such glorious breezy
views of sea and rock and headland, nnd of the warm
shelltered valley at one's feet
Polperro attends to its own business, and that, does not
include catering to tourists. There are always artists
at Polperro. They and the vshermen observe oach
other, becomti friends, perhaps; but business is not mentioned between tbem.
Clovelly Ills a rock cleft on Uie north Devon shore as
Polperro does upon the .southern! Cornish one, but there
ull comparisons end. Clovelly muy be still an earnest
fishing village, but her looks belie her. "The most exquisite vlllag' Ih England" some one called her. and she
deserves the title. I
From' the coach roud where, at the top of the cliffs, you
enter upon Clovelly's one street, to the seu; or, lf you
come by boat, from the harbor to Hobby Drive, and the
public road, everything Is dainty, elegant of Its kind,
groomed to impossible perfection. No whitewash gleams
wiiiter or bluer or more delicately yellow thnn bere at
Clovelly; no roses, fuchsias, clematis nor lilies bloom in
more profusion; no trees are richer and greener, no vines
more luxuriantly graceful than there. Never a bit of
paper litters that one stony street, more staircase than
roadway; no speck of dust mar shining windows or spotless curtains; no noise of railwuys. trolly cars, of traffic
breaqs the soft stillness of this village.
At Tintagel mpre than at any place, perhaps, what we
bring measures what  wc  taqe away.   Come full  of the:

his instructions were to have nothing whatsoever to do
Wilis' the Incorporation of the Federation, and there was
mt other alternative but for the representatives af the
Associated Growers to proceed with the incorporation.
In doing bo, three members of the Assooiated Growers
were appojnted as provisional directors.
Capital has been made of this by the independent
shippers who are now opposing the measure in its entirety, pointing out that by this procedure the Associated
Growers have unintentionally placed themselves lb tho
position of controlling the  Federation.
An tiiiiililiatic denial of this was made before tbo*
Agricultural Comlmittee by the Vice-President of the
Associated Growers, and an assurance given that the
Associated Growers hatl no intention of controlling more
than fifty per cent of the voting powei*. in the Federation, as was originally intended. Further assurance was
given to the Com|m!ttee through a telegranii
President and General Manager of the
Growers. •     _	
It is the feeling of those supporting the lijll that the
same as drafted, embodies the intention of the views
expressed in the resolution passed at the Kelowna convention, and their efforts have been directed wholly along
tilts line; and, It is very difficult to see wby the opposition has arise'h from those who were a party to the
original agreement which was nrrived at between the
shippers, the more especially when the sonse and intention of the original agreement has in no W|iB»> been altered by the attitude of those who are now supporting It.

FRIDAi'. FEBRUARY 25,  1927
Some idea of the enormous increase in production from
the primary industries of British Columbia may be ob-.
tained by the people of this province from a.study of statistics recently compiled by the various departments of
the public service at Victoria. It is shown, for instance,
that forestry .production has grown lin value from $115,528,-
000 in 1916 to $84,802,000 in 1926. The mlost striking comparison under this heading fs that furnished by the increase in the value of pulp and paper manufactured in
the province. In 1916 it stood at $3,520,000; 6ut last year
this had advauced to no less a sum that $16,315,000.
Lunfber value increased from $21,075,000 in the decade
under review to $42,516,000. Similarly encouraging is
an Increase in the value of shjingles, from $4,500,000 in
1916 to $10,500,000 last year. Jn every branch of this
basic industry, in fact, operations in 1926 were strikmgly
in excess of the returns for even a year or so ago. What
is true of forestry 'production ds true of mineral production. In this industry the total value in 1916 was$42,290,-
000 as compared iW)ith a value in 1926 of $67,718,400. It
should be remembered, however, that Ihe 1916 was one
of large war demands at prices far above the normal;
consequently the two totals do not bear the same relationship as might otherwise be the cn.se. At the same
film© the total balue of metalliferous products in 1926
amounted to $52,985,400 compared with $26,895 680 ten
years ago. The largest increase under this head was in
respect of lead, the value for $1916 being $3,007,462 and
for 1926 no less than $17,680,000. Conner, on the other
hand, the principal War requisite, repr-uented a value of
$17,784,494 in 1916 and only $13,650 000 last year. These
figures form an interesting study of solid progress in two
of the ntost ilmportant basic industries of the probince.
Their expansion very naturally has contributed to the
prosperous conditions which British Columbia now is enjoying—of whih many prominent economic and commercial experts have spoken so enthusiastically during the
past few months.

To find better preventive methods, doctors in recent
years have veen studying the commlon cold more carefully than ever, aud two authorities htve summarized
the supposed causes of this afflicti'o.i under five headings: chills and drafts, conditions of the weather, irritation of the membrane on the breathinj; apparatus, infection and bad ven(ilatiion. The last il: regarded as the
commonest of all the causes, as warm stagnant air produces congestion and swelling of the mucous membrane
which becomes covered w|ith a thick secretion and agords
a Weak spot for germs" to attackl In cool air this membrane remiBlns taut and well moistened. Then in a
poorly ventilated room, cold currents of air are likely
to Bti-like the feet While the head is ex; osed to the warm,
polluted upiper atu-osphere.,Ttii's is just the reverse of
what is considered the ideal condition for health, "cool
breezes blowing around the head, tb* radiant heat of
the sun, and a warm ground to stand on."Exposure alone
*s*s)ill not cause colds in healthy individuals, the doctors
declare. Arctic explorers, fishermen tnd others who remain out of doors for long hours in stormy, cold weather,
ofttn seem immune from these disorders. Irritation of
the mucous membrane of the respiratory passages by
dusts and chemicals is also a common cause of colds.
Mrs. Carveth Wells wife of a British railroad engineer,
spent several months with her husban 1 in the jungles of
the Malay peninsula. She relates her experience with
the funny flsh of Malay. "I saw one flsh there," she
say, whicli came out of a hole in Uie ground, hopped,
skipped and jumped to a'tree, climbed up and winked its
eye at me. Then it climlbed down, walked to a pool,
stood on the edge, dipped up some water in one fin and
took a shower bath. It was the famous funny flsh, which

For many years the Unjteds Statehas been the greatest
producer of peppermint and spearmint oils, and from
pressent indications bids fair to hold the lead. Japan,
Russia, Germuny and England are also considerable producers, tlie last two centuries turning out clils of the
highest con-tiisterqiuil quality. iNo accurate statistics of
the world's output of these commodities appear to be
available, but it 'is tho imjpresslon among those best Informed that the annual production of oil exceed 600,000
pounds, of which the United States contributed about
f25"0,OO0 pounds.
England hns always been famous for her vure-bred cattle and sheep. Nearly 300 yours ago huge oxen were
produced there. In his diary, Evelyn speaks of an ox
that was nineteen dands high and four yards long, and
that was in 1049. At, that date Leicestershire Bheep had
already obtained a great reputation and fetched high
vrlces. The marvelous sheep of New South Wales, one
of which recently yielded forty-five and one-half pounds
of wool at a clip, are of purely BISritiBh descent.
In the old days all shipping advertisements in the
papers used to be embelished with a picture of a ship.
At first they were all sailing ships, but gradually the
steamers came under the reader's eye. Column after
column of some of the papers used to be filled with these
advertisements, and a great fleet of vessels used to appear in print dally. It made the papers a bit more ln-
terestin g to those who could not read, and Illiterate
sailors used to spend much of their time criticizing the
cuts and ridiculing the advertisers who used pictures of
brigs to advertise full-riggers. A good story is told of
an old pilot of the eajly days, a good old sailor, but absolutely Illiterate. He picked up a paper in a stall iu a
saloon and made a bluff at being occupied in reading it.
It so happened that lie hold the paper upside down when,
an acquaintance entered, singing out, "What's the news
A dress show remarkable in several ways was staged at
Bush house, house, Strand, W. C, where the first free
public exhibition in London of the handicrafts of the
blind was disvlayed. Dainty frocks were shown, but the
girls who made them never saw them. Some of the girls
are deaf and dumb as well aB blind. Their work is so
good that it sells in the best salons of Paris and London
In the Rue de la Paix, fn Bond street, Regent street and
Oxford street women are unknowingly buying the work
of these afflicted girls and praising the perfection of the

those paid ln factories where the emvloyees are sighted.

All tills pother about campaign funds and bribery is
ridiculous. We all know that it is true. Since Slocan

politics poorer than when they went in. Nine out of ten
electors say they are "back numbers" or "plain d—d
fools." This is the reward for honesty fn politics. The
trouble with the present virtuous outbreak is that both
parties have been caught in the act of receiving money
from the booze ring for "assurance and protection." It

On the Hawaiian Islands may be found wonders of nature not seen anywhere else in the world. On Maui, the
Garden island, the volcano of Haleakala rears Its snowcapped crest above the clouds. The rim of the crater is
twenty miles around, and here it Is that the rare silver
sword plant may be found. From a distance it resem-
bleh the yucca of California. Thick, felt-like leaves clus
ter at the base of a tall slender stem,crowned with a silvery plume of flowers. The Bilver sword is becoming
scarce, due to the ravages of mountain goats. It grows
in such inaccessible places that it is as difficult to gather
as the Alpine edelweiss. ,
The naval observatory says that at either pole the moon
is above the horizon continuously for about two weeks,
and then below the horizon continuously for about two
weeks. At the Arctic and" Antarctic circles there are
some years when for a few days in eacb month the moon
does not set, and a few days in each month when it does
not rise; otherwise at these circles it rises and sets daily,
in the polar regions, during the winter months, the moon
is generally abave the horizon when it is full and below
the horizon when it is new, and the reverse is the case
during the summer months.

"The alchemists of three or four centuries ago were
the chemists of their day," says Dl"*. E. E. Free, writing
in the Forum. "They were honest, ftidustrious, respected. It is always unwise to imagine that the great men
of another age were either knaves or fools. We define
gold, today, in a chemical fashion. We know of certain
chemical testa to which the atom of no element exeept
gold will respond. We apply these tests. If they fail we
say that the substance before us is not gold, no matter
how gilt it may ibe nor how gold-like. may be Kb properties. This Is a new way to define gold. The alchemists
had na acquaintance with atoms nor were they much concerned with chemical teBts. When they wanted gold,
what they wanted waB something which would look like
gold, would feel like gold, would behave like gold against
the air and water and fire. Such tests constituted their
definition of goldlf a metal met them, that was enough.
It is distinctly possible that a number of the alchemical
procedures really did produce just this—not gold as we
define It, but something just as good; something that was
gold as the alchemists defined it. A number of them recorded that they had made gold; they left ditections for
making it. Either they were frightful liars or they had
made something that suited them. And it is not very
probable that they were liars. We know how to make today a number of alloys that looks enough like gold to be
its twin. Even jewelers have been fooled by some of
these alloys. Probably this Is just what a few of our ancient fellow chemists did and what they considered,
rightly enough, to be a considerable success."

An entirely new and unique test
will soon be made at the Chateau
Frontenac, Quebec, by Arthur Beauvais, driver ol the Frontenac dn.*
team. He has three wolves which he
has reared from babyhood. The,*
have been kept in a -kennel in the
same building with his huskies. They
are shy little things and appear bb
aliens among the dogs. They are not
as playful as pups, and to overcoir.e
their shyness Beauvais often puts
three little huskie pups in for play-
mates when they forget themselves
•nd seem less homesick for their
parents and the great out-doors.
These little creatures are now only
eight months-old, yet In this slytt't
time have learned much of mortals,
and they have already had one trip t)
Boston where thejr were exnibit'-d bf
the Canadian Pacific Rai'r■-.-/ ot the-
Sportsman's Show. •
One morning a brand nev- sporty
looking collar -was placed on one.
and the dignity this wild anim: 1
suddenly acquired was amazing. It
was like a child with new, shoes. It
turned its little head frit one sida,
then the other and sat*tlown in a
nedate manner, all four feet together
und held ita head Ugh haughtily and
aaid with its eyes/how look at me".
Do wild animals' understand? Ye**
Indeed, that wWd beast was as solf-
conscious as/iny human decked out
In a ne .v recalia.
Shortly after the return, of the
wolvesssfrom Boston, one of tho little
creatures sprained iti shoulder. When
Beauvais entered the building and
went up to the kennel, or compartment allotted thorn, which has wire
netting around, the poor little thing
came up to him for sympathy. It
was duly rubbed with lotions and
cared for, not in the least resenting
anything which was done for it.
A cute little sleigh, French-Canadian in design, has been built for it
art'd the picture shows little Master
Beauvais all ready for his first ride
as soon as the wolf is harnessed. It
is now three months since this wild
animal has been tame enough for this
little child to play with, and one
wonde.rs if the old saying "A little
child shall lead them" can be applied
in this instance. It can, however be
stated that' when this picture .was
tiken the., wolf had- to be literally
pulled out of the street back to its
kennel. It was interested in the
people around, the dogs, the taxis and
sleighs which passed as he posed for
one of his many pictures taken
lately. . t
It will indeed be worth while to
follow the adventures of a wild
creature from the woods of Quebec
province, into the biggest organization of Its kind in the world, s frequenter of the Chateau Frontenac,
one who has already taken trips, and
who will in time know tbe hearts and
fcindness of people it will come ir
contact with.

Cylinder heads of the detachable
varietp, like timling gearcaae cototb,
transmission covers, etc.,are shamefully abused by many who haveoc-
casion to remove and replace them.
As a result of this abuse, poor satisfaction Is often experienced and
serious damage is sustained by the
engine, where by proper precaution,
the same member pill glre^ong
and satisfactory service.
The cylinder head ls retained to
the cylinder block by a row of studs
and nuts extending around the
edges ln ordinary construction. If
in applying or removing the head
these nuts are tightened or loosened unevenly enormous pressure -will
be concentrated at a few points, resulting Jin warping .of the casting.
When once warped, a cylinder head
casting will not straighten out
again and cannot again be returned
to its true shape by any subsequent
even tightening • of nuts. Many
owners and repairmen of motor
cars understand the necessity of
even tightening of thse nuts but
fail to apply the principle in the reverse operation, Incontinently loosening away at one nut at a time,
and thus doing as much damage as
in tightening one at a time.
The proper n<ann©r of removing
a cylinder head is to loosen all ot
tbe nuts about a quarter turn, proceeding from one nut to the one as
nearly diagonally opposite as possible, repeating the process until all
are loose enough to turn freely.
Each may then be turned the rest
of the way off Individually. In -replacing the aame process should be"
reversed, each nut being screwed
down until resistance is felt and
then tightened each a quarter turn
in diagonal sequence until all are
tight
Unless the head is badly gummed
in place with lead or carbon It
should be possible to loosen it by
tapping around the edge with a
hammer. This produces vibration
and the clearance of the holes in
the head around the studs permits,
