DUNN Mr. Dunn was one of Mr. Igou's most intimate friends, having known the former merchant for many years. Yesterday afternoon the word flashed rapidly over this city that VIr. Igou was dead. To some perhaps it meant that just another of the men who made Mason City had the pathways of manhood. Only Memories Remain. To the family there remains only their memories and their hope for the future--their memories richened with 'more than a generation of paternal care and their future con fidence in the belief that somewhere on the other side the ties of all the years will be reunited and Father will be with them once more. About him was no ostentation, he never sought to move among the mighty, his life work centered about his family, his home and the circle of friends who knew him best. Devoted and tender he was the ideal father in the realrrj of a Christian home. None was too lowly to be Mr. Igou's friend, and as he sleeps the last long sleep a prayer will be uttered from the lips of the humble as well as from the lips of those who knew him in the busy marts of trade and measured him perhaps in the mighty whirlpool of a nation's business. In a quiet, silent, self-sacrificing manner he left his imprint on his generation more indelibly perhaps than those more widely heralded and perhaps better known. His friendships were formed from the simple standpoint of service to others. Those who knew him loved him for his simple unassuming self. For tho help he gave he asked no return. For the good he did he perhaps craved only the friendship and the kindly thots of those he was able to assist along life's pathway. Was True Friend.

He is lost from the activities of his friends, his city and his generation, and perhaps the greatest compliment that might be paid to this loving, modest citizen would be to hope that out of the generation here and to come will develop others with his kindly attributes, his sincere affection and his devotion to everything that makes life worth while.

All of the vital parts run on frictionless bearings. There are 5 frictionlesa bearings found in a Ford transmission as compared with 2 in the low priced car next in number. The countershaft is made of one solid piece (not two pieces riveted together). It turns on two Hyatt roller bearings (not bushings). The main shaft gear runs on a Hyntt roller bearing (not a bushing' These quality bearings mean long life nnd quiet gears.
