How Better Than Pills?
The question has been asked, "In
what way are Chamberlain's Tablets
superior to the ordinary cathartic
and liver pills?" Our answer is,
they are easier and more pleasant
to take and their 4Ject is so gentle
that one hardly realizes that it is
produced by a medicine. Then, they
not only move the bowels, but im
prove the appetite and strengthen
the digestion. Weyrich & Hadraba.

POLARINE does all that a motor oil should do. And
that is a tribute that can be paid to but few motor
lubricants being sold today. Keep the maintenance of
your motor truck down by using it exclusively.
Even in cold weather, Polarine.works its way quickly in
between the bearing surfaces of a motor and keeps them
coated with a heat-resisting film of oil. All motor oils are
supposed to protect the rubbing surfaces of motors.
Polarine does protect them in winter as effectively as m
summer, in old motors and new ones, at low speed and
at high speed.
Polarine is raadein one standard, unsurpassed quality. But
