' Chalk Up Another Score for Standard's Engineers uel More Live Power per gallon means that your car will get off to a faster start, take tough hills more easily and hold high speed hour after hour without hard labor for your engine. How more Live Power is made available and usable in Standard Red Crown Superfuel is a more involved story. It IB accomplished in the refining. Heavier, slower parts of an already excellent gasoline are converted into faster, keener fractions. . . But you are most interested in the result. And the result, as evidenced in your car, will be better performance — markedly better. May we suggest that you drive in where you see the familiar Red Crown? Make your usual outlay for a supply of gasoline—for Superfuel sells at the price of '"regular". We believe this small investment will lead to a big return in your motoring enjoyment this summer.

Mr. Ricklefs will be too Dusy looking after his candidacy for sheriff of Kossuth county the next few months to nil his olfioe as marshal adequately. Mr. Ricklefs has made Titonka a perfect officer and his execution of that office is a fore runner of what the people of Kossuth could expect if elected.
