There are times when reluctance to take a chance is the mark of a coward. Daring in the right place is one of the immortal virtues. But "taking chances" with the title in purchasing a piece of property is no immortal virtue—it is unmitigated foolishness. "Everybody knows that, perhaps pou say. , True—and practically nobody buys property without getting SOME KIND— of an sbstract ot title. But what kind? One that is based on complete, accurate, syttematic rec ords? Made by a specialist? An abstract that covers the entire history of the property—free from errors and ommissions—durable as the laws of the State and the United States, on which it is founded? Any other kind of abstract, is just the same as no abstract. In other words, when you rely on it. YOU TAKE CHANCES. Play safe. Come in and let us show you to your own satisfaction that our service makes safety certain. Clearwater Abstract Co. Bonded Abstractors. Orofino, Idaho. I r. How Long Will It Burn. Ask the Man?
