Ins wile to live in i.imwoou, which

itho only residents of the town. From
; the vtry beginning, therefore, of
I this town, Charlie t'lapp has bee:1
associated with it as one of its bou
rn his prep-
! art ion and work of life. What
a genuine , interest he mani
fested, as the speaker well remem
bers, when the old-home was being
remodelled and made the beautiful
M eme it now is. Much of the work
, was done with his own hands. No
I expense was spared that he might
makV the home the most beautiful
and homelike possible. Although
much of the past four years he in"i
company with his wife, has been
ro v-iding in California, his heart was
alwrys here and in the last few
weeks before his death he had ex
pressed to friends a desire to come
back to the old home. The past year
ha? been spent entirely at Los An
geles, California. It was here that
the last illness occurred which was
in the nature of a carbuncle behind
the right ear. He remained for five
week's in his home, where he was
ministered to by kind and loving
hands. Hut an operation was neces

had been great and the heart could
not stand the strain. In less than
two days after the operation took

and the sou! had gone back to God
from whence it had come. He is sur
vived by a wife, a son, two brothers
and many relatives, besides a host
of old friends and neighbors, all of
whom join to mourn his loss. Elm-

Less Strain On Your Battery
It is easier on your starting battery when you
use Polaiine for engine lubrication.
Because Polarinc is made at a below-freezing
point temperature, it does not conceal and
make the engine hard to turn over m cold
Polarine always assures maximum power
from your gasoline, too, by maintaining a
gas-tight seal between piston rings and cyl
inder walls. It does not disintegrate at high
cylinder heat. ,
Polarine keeps every bearing ami en.uayinj? part cush
ioned against friction. It doesn't cripple an engine
with carbon. It is the standard oil for all types of
engines and service conditions.

Gasoline by dealers ami garages everywhere.
