A Book for Automobilists
Literature of the automobile is becoming quite a feature in the list of publications. To such a list “The Modern Gasoline Automobile, Its Constructions. Operation, Maintenance and Repair,” is an invaluable contribution, and the automobilist who wishes to understand, as well as to manipulate his machine successfully, will do well to obtain a copy and master its contents. The work, which is issued by the Norman W. Henley Publishing Company, is a practical and comprehensive treatise that defines clearly and as far as possible in non-technical terms, all the principles that pertain to gasoline automobiles and the component parts. Independently of its handsome getup and its first-class typography, it is copiously illustrated with 500 detailed cut and diagrams specially made for the hook. The illustrations that define the construction of the parts of an automobile are the result of most accurate engineering practice. To-day. when motor-driven apparatus will soon entirely supersede the horsehauled, such a work as this will he found an absolutely necessary addition to the library of every up-to-date fire house, and will form a textbook for the guidance of every fire chief and master mechanic of every fire department whereever the Anglo-Saxon tongue prevails. It should be utilized especially by those who have in charge the civil service examinations of candidates for the position of engineer or driver in the fire service. and is. besides, a volume whose study will benefit all who desire to raise themselves from the ranks to higher positions, as its 700 and more pages contain thoroughly practical information conveyed by methods conspicuous for their “lucid order,” and in terms so plain that the wayfaring man cannot misunderstand them or err in their interpretation. This work can be procured from FIRE ASH WATER ENGINEERING at $2.50.
