JOUNILBAZ tfwict H.v. Fourteenth Instalment ...hence requiring less oil per mile/ Little is really understood about the complicated ingre- dients which nuke up petroleum crudc oils. But this one fact has been proven time and again: By and large the older a crude oil is, the finer motor oil it will make— and the fewer quarts you will bare to add on long trips. Sinclair Opaline Motor Oil is refined and blended from the oldest Mid-continent paraffin-base crudes, mellowed and filtered in the earth for an average of 80 million years—so say geologists. In process of manufacture, Sin- clair chills Sinclair Opaline down to as low as 60° F. below zero in order to remove the non-lubricating petroleum jelly. Sinclair Opaline is all lubricant—no waste. Try a crankcaseful. Note how seldom you need to add oil. SYNOPSIS: Ruth Warren, who lived in the Ea t, it willed three-fourth interest in the 'Dead Lantern" ranch in Arizona by her wily brother who it reported to have met his death while on busin...

A? Mad* 100% from the famous Bradford-Allegany crude of the PENNSYLVANIA field When we tell you that Sinclair Pennsylvania Motor Oil is made 100% from Bradford*Allegany crude oil we mean exactly this: Sinclair Pennsylvania is made 100% from the costliest Pennsylvania grade crade (see price quotations in any petroleum journal). Also Sinclair Pennsylvania is made from the oldest Pennsylvania grade crude—a crude that has lain mellowing and filtering in the Pennsylvania field for a hundred million years. To make Sinclair Pennsylvania still better, Sinclair removes the non-lubricating petroleum jelly by chill- ing the oil down to as low as 60° F. below zero. Being jelly-free, Sin- clair Pennsylvania docs not thin out and waste awav in fast driving. Try it. A single crankcaseful will prove that Sinclair Pennsylvania stands up better and lasts longer than any oil you ever used before. 5s Sinclair Pennsylvania MOTOR OIL frm the CMlKul Penntyhania grade crude Agent Sinclair Refining Company ...

Breakfasts When you make toast right at the table—and do it auto- matically with a new Electric Toaster—breakfast becomes a quite happy meal, not an endless relay race to the kitchen and back. You don't even have to interrupt your conver- sation or the morning paper to watch the toast—it pops up automatically when it's reached just the shade of golden brown you like best. Go to your local dealers and get one of the newest Toasters—before another breakfast is spoiled by cold or burned toast.

"There was a herd of mustangs that ran on the ranch where I worked in South Texas. The leader was a beauti- ful dun, with black mane, black tail and a black stripe down his back. For two days I watched this herd, studying their habits. The third day I took a rope and hid behind a big rock which the mustangs always passed on their way to water. It was their day for wa- ter, and I didn't have long to wait. About 4 o'clock in the afternoon along came the herd in a swinging trot; they never walked. The leader was out in front, as usual.
