■ - A SIMPLE TIRE REPAIR. Punctures in the well known ltf0 gan & Wright tire are mended aW as easily as a man would close a hol in his fing-er with a bit of court pia 6 ter. Inside of the inner tube of th' tire lies a strip of patching tL ber, like this : By M. & W. quick-repar cement through the puncture into this inner tube, and then pressing down on the tire with the thumb, like this the repair strip inside is picked up by the cement, thus the puncture like this; Very simple, but - now every rider should remember these two "buts,"or lie will fail : Before injecting cement, pump un the tire. If you don't, the inner tube will be flabby, like this, and the cement will not get inside of it, where the repair strip lies. When you have a puncture, get right off. Riding a tire flat, when it has a tack or nail in it, may damage it considerably.
