It was an ideal setting for staging seances with ghosts and the Eddys did a wholesale business in acting as inter mediaries between the good folk of their neighborhood, their distinguished visit ors, enterprising newspapermen from the; big cities and those who had gone across the Great IHvide.

Either one singles out Prest-O-Lite from other batteries. Combined they make it a battery value without a rival. Money -Saving Figures Prest-O-Lite Batteries represent the greatest .value in years. Consider that you can buy a regular Prest-O-Lite Battery for popular makes of light cars for $19.90 (trade .1 price). Here are other outstanding values: $24.50 (trade-in price) for a 6-volt type serving BUICK OAKLAND MAXWELL. HUDSON CHANDLER ESSEX 12-volt type at $32.30 (trade-in price) that serves MAXWELL DODGE FRANKLIN There are similar reductions on every Prest-O-Lite Battery, and Prest-O-Lite builds a correct type of bat tery for every make of motor car and truck. Yes, With PREST-O-PLATES These are not special models. They are top-quality Prest-O-Litec, with the famous Prest-O-PIates. Prest-O-PIates are as different from ordinary battery plates as gold is from gilt. They combine unusual hard ness with a peculiar porosity. None of the old plate compromise between e to Car Owners hardness and porosity. Prest-O-Plates have both. This explains their ready depend able reserve power in biting zero weather, and their non-buckling, heat-resisting strength in summer. Experts say that they are the world's best battery plate, and this is the same as saying that Prest-O-Lite is the world's best battery. For the life of a battery is in the" plates. You never need a new bat tery until the plates in your old go bad. As long as you have live plates, you have a battery. Doubly Guaranteed And every part of a Prest-O-Lite Battery is worthy, In material and workmanship, of Prest-O-Plates. That is why 87 leading manufac turers specify Prest-O-Lite as original equipment, and "the list is growing." Every Prest-O-Lite is backed by the regular Prest-O-Lite guaranty, a definite obligation, plus a spirit that says the car owner must be pleased. Use PREST'O-LlTE Service It is our business, as part cf Prest-O-Lite Service, the oldest organized service to motorists, to carry out this spirit; and to see that you get every bit of life out of a Prest-O-Lite Battery.
