THE OLDEST NATION
RELAND is the oldest European
nation. The lia flail, or stone of
fate, was believed to be identical
with the stone on which Jacob laid
his head. The Tua t ha de Danann
brought It to Ireland by way of Nor
way. They were called the Tribe of
God and were looked upon as super
human because of their great attain
ments in artistic and scientificfpur-
sults. “All who are skilled in the use
of musical instruments; those who are
gifted In the arts of divination and
enchantment—such are the sons of the
descendants of the Tuatha de Danann."

To many motorists this simple subject is enshrouded in a haze
of mystery. They are bewildered by a mass of technical terms,
claims and counter claims, flung at them by unscrupulous man
Cheap oils and greases have seemingly been endowed in print,
at least, with all the qualities of higher priced products.
Yet some motorists will spend thousands of dollars for an
automobile, and then endeavor to save a few cents by buying
cheap oil. This is like stopping the hands of a clock to save time.
To them, if one gallon of oil costs 25 cents, five gallons will

If so many gallons at so much per gallon cost so much plus a
repair bill because of using wrong oil, that makes different
