SHSDQ(BDaDdQ TTd'sksIIgdd' (BSD Stanolind Tractor Oil has been found, through severe and thorough tests, to be the best lubricant for more than one-half of the tractors made. This oil is one of great durability. It stands the high temperature developed in a tractor engine with-' out change in body. It has the correct body to thorough ly lubricate the remotest frictional surfaces, eliminating scored cylin ders and undue wear. Where mechanical conditions or design make it desirable to use a slightly heavier, or slightly lighter, Oil than Stanolind Tractor Oil, Extra Heavy Polarine Oil or Heavy Polarine Oil is recommended. Any Standard Oil representative will be glad to show you the chart of Tractor lubrication, prepared by our Engineering Staff. It in dicates specifically which of these three oils the Standard Oil En gineers have found will give the best results in your particular tractor. We have just published a lOOpage book "Tractors and Tractor Lubri cation," prepared by our engineer ing staff, which you will find a valuable reference book, and we believe it will save you many days of tractor idleness with the result ant money loss.

The Thirty Years' war Is often called a religious war, but It was a war In which religion was made the hand maid of politicians and the excuse of ambitious princes; the mightiest king dom on the Protestant side was the Catholic nation of France, swayed by Cardinal Richelieu, and the Lutheran elector of Saxony did not hesitate to ally himself with the oppressor of the Bohemian Protestants. First Overt Act of ths War. The story that the first overt act of var arose from two soldiers of differ ent nationalities approaching a well to get a drink and getting Into a fight as to who should first have the bucket, Tassonl, the Italian poet, has em balmed In his mock-heroic poem, "The Rape of the Bucket" If he did not In vent it. At any rate the stage of Eu rope was set for war and war came. In May of 1018 the Bohemian Prot estants rose in rebellion and the con flagration rapidly spread over conti nental Europe. Men were born, grew to manhood and died knowing no world but a world at war. A man of fifty could only remember that It was before he attained his majority that there had been no war; war had come to seem the normal state of the world. In this war were made the military reputations of Oustavus Adolphus, king of Sweden, Tilly, Wallensteln, Turenne and Conde.' Central Europe was the battleground and the fortunes of war favored first one side and then the other. It would take volumes to detail the carupalgns and battles of this war and Its shifting politics. In the long run the . Protestant side, through the fighting power of the 8wedes and the might of Catholic France, got the best of It Meantime Europe was becoming ut terly exhausted In men, money And commerce and Industry. The pope suggested negotiations for a peace and In 1011 Louis XIII of France signed the preliminaries for a conference. But Cardinal Mazarln, who had succeeded Richelieu upon the death of that great statesman, did not desire peace until he had further humbled some of the Catholic powers, especially Spain. Peace Delegates Met at Munsttr. However, three years after Louis had signed the preliminaries peace delegates met at Munster. The con gress accomplished nothing, the dele gates spending their time In squabbles over matters of precedence and etl quette. It was hard work to get them to enter a common council chamber for fear one envoy would enter the room before the other, or to sit at any thing but a round table for fear one should sit at the head of it. Their re tainers fought In the streets for the right of way. The conference was re moved to Osnabruck with like results The war still going on, the fluctuations of battle caused a fluctuation of de mands on the part of the envoys. The house of Austria spilt In two, the em peror desiring the peace for which all central Europe was clamoring, but Spain refusing to treat Finally In October of 1648, after four years of negotiation, the treaty known as the Peace of Westphalia was signed at Munster, This treaty put an end to the period of so-called religious wan and also to the supremacy of ths house of Austria in Germany. Francs and Sweden were the principal bene ficiaries, the latter receiving large Ger man possessions with three votes lo the diet, as well as an Indemnification In money. - France was confirmed In the possession of Verdun, Toul and Metz and most of Alsace. Germany was left in a horrible state materially; but had won liberty of conscience and a promise that laws, taxes and peacf or war should be decided upon only bj a free assembly of all the "estates" of the empire. 69,182.63 ASSETS Cash on hand $ 7,707.71 Loans on Mortgage Secur ity .. ... . . . . . . ,. . . ... 126,997.88 Loans on Stock Security 3,065.57 Furniture and Safe 87.00 Real Estate .. 800.00 Land Contracts ....... .. 3,321.53 Delinquent Interest end Premium 1,036.45 Insurance and Taxes for Borrowers 33 80 Liberty Bonds and U.
