BURGLARY CASE. IS
STILL A MYSTERY
No Trace Has Been Found of Parties
Who Entered McElwain Store and
Made Away With Booty
From Saturdays Dally. .
All efforts to get a trace of the
person or persons who made the suc
cessful haul at the B. A: McElwain
store on Thursday night, has proven
fruitless and the parties that com
mitted the act are still at large.
The loss sustained by Mr. McEl
wain will run in "the neighborhood
of $1,000 as he has discovered by a
check of the stock the theft of many
articles that were not missed at the
time of the robbery, and including
the loss of a number of watches
which had been left out of the safe
at the closing time Thursday.
The robbing of the store makes
the tbjrd burglary that Mr. McEl
wain has been through as on two
previous, occasions he has had visits
from the unwelcome night callers
but in this case his loss is not as
heavy as on previous occasions, ai
one of the robberies Mr. McElwain
was sleeping in a small room ad
joining the store room he was then
occupying and the robber on that
occasion proceeded to give Bert a
dash of dope that put him in dream
land while the visitors proceeded to
carry off the greater part of hw
stock, so that-on this occasion he can
feel very fortunate in not suffering
a greater loss than he did.

depends quite as much on correct lubrication as
on suitable fuel.
It is quick, complete combustion that generates
power in a motor; but it is lubricating oil that
supplies the seal which insures full compression
of the fuel charge and which holds the explosive
gases behind the pistons and makes them work.
Polarine does this effectively and more. Be
tween engaging parts and in bearings it maintains
a protective oil cushion that insures quiet; smooth
operation with minimum vibration, wear and
strain. Keeps motors fit the year round and
makes overhauling and repair bills-small.

How Diphtheria is Contracted
One often hears the expression,
'My child caught a severe cold which
developed into diphtheria," when the
truth was that the cold had simply
left the little one' particularly sus
ceptible to thegvandering diphtheria
germ. If your child hasa cold when
diph-theria is prevalent you should
take him out of school and keep him
off the street until fully recovered,
as there is a hundred times more
danger of his taking diphtheria when
he has a cold. When Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy is given it quickly
ures the cold and lessens the dan
ger of diphtheria or any other germ
disease being contracted.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
The great Denexit derived from the
use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
has been gratefully acknowledged by
