A Three Days' Cough Is Your Danger Signal No matter how many medicines you have tried for your cough, chest cold or bronchial irritation, you can get relief now with Creomulsion. Serious trouble may be brewing and you cannot afford to take a chance with anything less than. Creomul- sion, which goes right to the seat; of the trouble to aid nature to soothe and heal the inflamed membranes as the germ-laden phlegm is loosened and expelled. Even if other remedies have failed, don't be discouraged, your druggist is authorized to guarantee Creomulsion and to tefu'nd your money if you are not satisfied with, results from the very first''bottle. Get Creomulsion right now. (Adv.) OIL-PLATING differs widely from other forms of lubrication in this plain, understandable way: It remains lastingly fastened to the pistons, bearings and other engine parts, even when they are not in motion. This is made possible by the Germ Process--patented-which gives Conoco Germ Processed oil its strong attraction for metals, so that every working part becomes durably Oil-Plated, Oil-Plating is not like any lubrication that merely goes on-and-off. Once Germ Processed oil covers the parts it never leaves them bare of Oil-Plating . . . Never when the pistons are racing thousands of strokes a minute... Never on any hills, despite any load . . . Never while you park at a dozen different stores. So it's nothing to you, when engineers blame -more than half of all engine wear on so-called "dry starting." Nor need you worry over all the rest of the annual Spring oil scare. Whether your car is new or old, you can make your longer runs . . . hit your higher speeds . . . enjoy your hotter sunshine. Oil-Plating can take it like the longest-lasting part of your engine. For Oil-Plating really becomes a long-lasting part of your engine, as you change to long-lasting Conoco Germ Processed oil.
