s; it is as if apprentice blacksmiths hadspent their idle moments in constructing a machine. The carriage work is hopelessly bad. The build-ing of carriages is a long-established industry, em- 6 82 On an Automobile ploying hundreds of thousands of hands and millionsof capital, and yet in the entire United States thereare scarcely a dozen builders of really fine, substantial,and durable vehicles. Yet every cross-road maker ofautomobiles thinks that if he can only get his motorto go, the carpenter next door can do his woodwork.The result is cheap stock springs, clips, irons, bodies,cushions, tops, etc., are bought and put over themotor. The use of aluminum bodies and more metalwork generally is helping things somewhat; not thataluminum and metal work are necessarily better thanwood, but it prevents the unnatural union of the lightwood bodies, designed for cheap horse-vehicles, witha motor. The best French makers do not build theirbodies, but leave that part to skilled carriage builders.

If it beenacted that any man who advocates the commissionof any criminal act, or who afterwards condones thecrime, shall be deemed guilty of an offence equal tothat advocated or condoned and punished accordingly,the propaganda of action in all branches of criminalendeavor will be effectually stifled without the doubt-ful expedient of directing legislation against any par-ticular social or economic theory.

The morning was bright and warm. The roadswere perfect for miles. We passed Kings Bridge,Yonkers, Hastings, and Dobbs Ferry flying. At Tar-rytown we dropped the chain. A link had parted.Pushing the machine under the shade of a tree, ahalf-hour was spent in replacing the chain and rivet-ing in a new link. All the pins showed more or lesswear, and a new chain should have been put on inNew York, but none that would fit was to be had.292 New York to Buffalo 293 We dined at Peekskill, and had a machinist go overthe chain, riveting the heads of the pins so nonewould come out again. Nelson Hill, a mile and a half beyond Peekskill, a cUmbproved all it was said to be,—and more. In the course of the trip we had mounted hills thatwere worse, and hills that were steeper, but only inspots or for short distances; for a steady ste

The tire that had been plugged with rubber bandsweeks before in Indiana was now leaking, the aircreeping through the fabric and oozing out at severalplaces. The leak was not bad, just about enough torequire pumping every day. The extra tire that had been following along wastaken out of the express office and put on. It was atire that had been punctured and repaired at the fac-tory. It looked all right, but as it turned out the repairwas poorly made, and it would have been better toleave on the old tire, inflating it each day.
