Puactures in the well known Morgan & Wrig-ht tire are mended about as easily as a man would close a hole in his fineer with a bit of court piaster. Inside of the inner tube of the tire lies a strip of patching rubber, like this : By injecting M. & W. quick-repair cement throug-h the puncture into thia inner tube, and then down on the tire with the thumb, like this, the repair strip inside is pioked up by the cement, thus the puncture, like this ; Very simple, but - now every rider should remember these two "buts," or he will fail : Before cement, pump up the tire. If you don't, the inner tube will be flabby, like this, and the cement will not get iaside oí it, where the repair strip lies. When you have a puncture, get right off. a tire flat, when it has a tack or nail in it, may damage it ccnsiderably.
