in ior a lot of adjusting and tink

through the winter, but the task
has lefty it rather pepless.,
As grandma used t&, get out

auto owners along about this time
get the feeling of restlessness In
regard to the condition of their

Between, eight and ten million
owners will be lout before, long
tinkering I with i their . automobiles,
cleaning, painting, polishing, ov'er
haulng and generally getting: the
roachiae into shape for spring, and
summer trips. . Yet, perhaps, after
doing a thorough job of overhaul
ing, you still find that the engine
.doesn't perform Quite right,
i How about the. battery? Almost
forgot about, that, hidden away
as it Is and requiring so little care
aayway. ) It i is about time this
small but . quite; important organ
of the : machne received a little
attention. . j ' ; .

Mr. BurreU, local.WIilard.bat-

of ancient flutes.' -
Stevensonjs great, black eyes
would." glisten with excitement
while ' he listened to these tales,
Donat said. - Speaking of Steven-,
son, Donat said before his death
on February 28 last:
"Ah, that was , a fine man; so
kind, so gentle, ; so gracious to
