Motors lubricated with Polarine run easily smoothly - quietly.
Polarine is not an ordinary lubricant. It is made from selected
crude oil by processes that have taken many years to perfect.
Standard conditions keep its unexcelied quality uniform.
To meet the requirements of all makes of cars and trucks,
Polarine is made in four grades, differing in body but not in
quality. These grades are
Polarine Polarine Heavy
Polarine Medium Heavy Polarine Extra Heavy
For winter use the Polarine and Polarine Medium Heavy
grades are recommended.
Imperfect compression is a costly source of lost power. It is
only one of the many bad results of using low grade motor
oils. Preserve the life of every moving motor part by using
, Polarine regularly.
Get all the satisfaction you expected out of your car by using
Red Crown gasoline. With Polarine, it makes possible the
finest performance of which your car is capable - always.

In, the p;ist few years there have
been a large number r.f the residents
of l'lattsmouth migrating to the l'a
cifie slope, where in the mild and
pleasant climate they are enjoying
life to the utmost, and these have
located to a greater exttnt in and
near Los Angeles. The former resi
dents have kept alive the friendships
and associations of the yars past by
gatherings at their homes and re
cently a very pleasant event of thi
kind was held in honor of the tenth
wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs.
A. K. Quinn. Mrs. Quinn was for
merly M;ss May Pat terson of this city
and Mr. Quinn was for a time located
in l'lattsmouth where lie was inter
ested in the publication of the News
Herald. The event was arranged by Mrs.
l'.enjamin IOlson and was in the na
ture of a surprise on the happy cou
ple who were observing their tin
wedding anniversary.. The occasion
was spent in visiting and dicusing
the many pleasant events of the by
gone days when the members of the
party were residents of the beautiful
state of, Nebraska and many memories
of the eld home town along the banks
of the Missouri river wore brought to
mind by the reminiscences of the
members of the party. A wry de
lightful two course luncheon was al
so enjoyed by the guests of the eve
ning. Mr. and Mrs. Quinn received
many handsome gifts from their old
friends. Those in attendance were:

London, Nov. 9. Buyers
Paris who wish to attend the
national shoe and leather fair 'which
is lning hold here are accommodated
with a special service of aeroplanes
from the French capital to this city.
The present fair, which is the
twenty-first, is the biggest yet held.
There are over 4(o exhibitors but
none from Germany and the depart
ment of overseas trails is actively co
operating with the liritish manufac
turers in their endeavors to iind
In vi"W of the recent slump in the
industry, says the American chamber
of Commerce in London, commenting
en the fair, much dissatisfaction is
being expressed at the imports of
German upper leather which is re
ported to be arriving in large quan
tities. Before- the war British factories on
ly produced roughly 4 0 per cent of
the glace kid used in Britain and i0
per cent of the box calf. During
the war the industry was urged by
the government to extend its plants
sr that in the future Britain would
be independent of foreign supplies.
In consequence. factories and
plants were extended so that more
than 7f per cent of the requirements
can be met from home manufactories
and the dumping of German leather
is therefore hitting the British tan
ning trade very hard.
