From somewhere far to the south
a cloud of dust originated and
floated north, enveloping this
neighborhood Monday in a strange
gloom. At 3:30, as I write, the
room is dark as approaching night.
With windows and doors closed^
some way a flour-like dust reaches
one’s nostrils, throat and eyes, and
the head aches. Out in the open
one can scarcely see 40 rods. Cat
tle grazing in the pastures lift be
smudged faces and blackened noses
as you approach and if they do not
get enough of the dust with the
feed to result fatally it will be
well. At 4 o’clock the gloom has
become such that lights are neces
sary. From the horizon on all
sides to the zenith the dust cloud
hangs like an oncoming tornado;
and then clouds, real clouds, an
nounced by rumbling thunder, ap
pear above the dust and we sit and
hopeforrain. At 5 o’clock the dark
ness is as deep as starless midnight.
Then a few drops of rain. At 5:30
light breaks thru the thick cloud
but up until nightfall hte unnatural
gloom continues. The night brings
rain. R. S.

Motorists who know these facts
will save money:
Motor oils refined by the usual methods have
some oiliness and film strength, but they
may form carbon and sludge, which lead to
expensive motor repairs.
Other oils may form almost no carbon and
1r '<l • •
sludge, but are so over-refined that they are
robbed of oiliness and film strength they
need to prevent motor wear.
Germ Processed Oil is refined lo eliminate
carbon and sludge troubles and then the Germ
Process adds extra oilincss and 2 to 4 times
more film strength than any mineral oil/
YOU will save money on repairs and have a
smoother running motor if you use Conoco
Germ Processed Motor Oil!
The Germ Process—adding concentrated oily es
sence to highly refined oil—gives it the extra oiliness
and film strength so necessary for full protection of
high-powered, high-speed motors. No other oil is
made by the Germ Process.
Germ Processed Oil cuts down costly starting
wear, which other oils fail to do. It is the only oil
with the “Hidden Quart" that stays up in your motor
and never drains away.
Germ Processed Oil is free from carbon and sludge
troubles. It has a lower rate of consumption and gives
longer mileage, as proved by the famous Indianapolis
Say,“0. K.—Drain”—and fill with Conoco Germ
Processed Motor Oil.
