He "was-born Aug. ., 1S4H, in New fane, a son .f .Asa and Mary (Johnson) Pratt. His father was a native cf Ne.v fane and- was a wheelwright and black smith by trade. Noble Pratt' was a lifo-1 ng resident of Ncwfane and his pleasant, cliwriul f:.c(? will be missed by ti.ose who nave known him from boylnod. as veil as by 1 lie many nev.c.iuiers in town wh.) have learned to appreciate hi:; kii:diics: t uea.rt. Thouii he had burdens to bear and severe trials came to lnu! he bravely e:.. du red all and endeavored to look on the bright side of life. In his early days ae met with much success as a .barber and many, regretted his decision to give up the business when the infirmities of age made it seem necessary to do so. Ills . ve of music was well known and his unusual ability as a drummer gave him a place in the Ncwfane band which llourished for a time, and also in the Dumnieiston band, on Memorial .day and other patriotic occasions he always served willingly. When his only son en listed for the World war he endured the parting as only a patriot can endure, and while passing- through his last ill ness, lie same uncomplaining spirit was manifested. For many years he was en gaged in buying'and selling cattle. tie had one sister, Mary, who dieil when nine years old. and four bait brothers. He leaves 110 near relatives except his only son, Raymond Earl Pratt, Vho lives at the Pratt homestead on North Main street.

The Standard of Comparison S- r A Double Protection In addition to fitting per fectly without a gap, the etorm curtains on Buick open models, are provided with a weather strip or flap which seals the joint so that wind or rain cannot penetrate. Buick open cars, with the curtains in place, have no cracks for cold to penetrate. They are as nearly weather Jr. tightasanyopencarcanbe. The Buick Line for 1923 comprises Fourteen Models: Driving Comfort in Winte The Buick "Model 45" Six Cylinder 1 195 As complete as has been the development of the enclosed' car, Buick designers have not neglected to improve the open type of car, building into it a measure of comfort, convenience and weather protection surpassed only bv the more expensive closed vehicle. . Protection against wind and snow is assured by the s'nue fitting storm curtains that open with the' doors. The Buick design of storm curtains with a special weather strip pro vides a coziness, comparable to that of any closed car, white windshield wiper and tight fitting windshield, adjustable from within, make driving safe and comfortable. Added to this, and equally important in winter, driving is the splendid performance that a Buick car always pro 5MrltS constant anc surplus power its roadability and perfect balance and its unquestioned dependability.
