fn.ed to do so

an nics'.mcnt broker, who admitted that
he w..i In court room for the find
rim anil that ho had never attended n
flint ml in hi" life. He totd of buying
bumls fit Ml!. Barney nnd of having
more or less trouble with her after she
t.ne her ordeis. He said:
"I h.nl n piemonltiou that something
, colng to li.i,eii to Mrs. Harney's
t'lailln stock anil 1 told her she had bet
irr sell It ami get nut of the company.
She mid: 'My husb.md and Henry

Wfen nil my other nonets have gone I
rely on that riallln Mock for my
iuiporl' Till' wan In April and the
rtwniury failed In June. After the fail
ure slie wanted to io!l her stock, but
ihM- ii no market for It then."
Did cue lniptes yu is a woman of
t-iiii. nifJ" asked Jeremiah CVIary,
ron'.'.d for the seventeen cousins who
ale lOliteetillg tliu wi I.
Slip impressed me as being feeble
and lii.kle minded."
The witness said that Mrs. Harney
tola him in 1913 that her nephew, Louis
V Bnnlf. i-.uhler of the Security Hank,
mn got the bulk of her 5300,000 es
t.i'e. tried to Induce her to take her
fuuM to the Fourteenth Ptreot Bank,
.ih tch he w.ih then connected. "I
toM her tlint she ti.nl better keep her
money in the lluar.inty Trust Company,
where 11 was. s.i.d tnc witness. sue
asked me If I thought Knnls was trying
t get her money and 1 told her I didn't
mink ati thing about It"
On cross-examination the witness de
f'.red that Mrs. Harney "had no mind
at all."
iuncl for the contestants got In evi
dence a letter wrltcn by Ennls to an
aunt In Tennessee a year before Mrs.
Hnrnev's death In which he asked for
the names of nil her children and said :
There Is nothing to report In the mat
ter of Aunt Anna's property, the parcel
i: jo small and the real estate market
l. so low."
The contestants contend that this let
ter showed that Ennls then had a plan
t,nder way to get the bulk of Mrs. Har
ney's property for himself.
William A. Condon, a moving picture
iran of Summit, N. J., testified that he
met Mrs. Barney when he leased her
bam at 14 a month for taking pictures,
lie saw her cutting the lawn with a pair
of dressmaker's scissors while It was
rtlnlng hard, he said.
"Mrs. Burney told me she trusted only
one man." said the witness. "She al
ways spoke of him as 'the cashier.' She
l.ersr mentioned his name, but I believe
he referred to Louis V. Ennls. In her
opinion he was the only honest man In
the world.
The case will go on to-day.

At Last
the Balanced' Tire
The greatest forward step
ever made in pneumatic tires
On January 8th, in the Saturday Evening Post, we
announced that at last ve had made pneumatic rubber
tires more like other dependable articles of merchandise.
Stop and analyze this statement "more like other
dependable articles of merchandise."
Unless backed up by result, il would be almost
commercial suicide for a tire manufacturer to make
such a statement.
Now we are ready to tell you the reason for this
fearless confidence in our tires the reason for the
gigantic sales increases of our tires since September last.
Many months ago we finally worked out and began
producing the completely 'balanced' pneumatic tire the
heretofore unattainable goal of every tire manufacturer.
To be 100 per cent, efficient, a tire must be absolutely
balanced' that is, the rubber tread and tne fabric
carcass of the tire must give equal wear.
'Balance the tire maker's goal
To have perfect 'balance' the rubber tread must
have enough resiliency to absorb road shocks that tend
to disintegrate the fabric, .and still must have the
toughness to give long wear.
Too much toughness reduces resiliency ; too much
resiliency sacrifices toughness. Problem find the
Full rubber-tread efficiency demands a 50-50
'balance' of resiliency and toughness.
Full fabric-carcass efficiency demands a 50-50
a union
'balance' of fabric layers and rubber
will make tread separation impossible.
Full, complete tire efficiency demands a 50-50
'balance' of the rubber tread and the fabric carcass
neither may be stronger or weaker than the other.
This is the goal we have reached
By producing thin complete 'balance between resiliency and
toughness in the tread, and between fabric and rubber in the
carcass, we have secured 100 per cent, efficiency in United States
Individualized Tire, or absolute 'balance' of wearing quality in
both rubber tread and fabric carcass.
By September last, these absolutely 'balanced United State
Tires began to be " felt on the market."
Since then sales have increased steadily month by month up to
the recent highest increase of 354 per cent. this tells the story.
