DID IOU EVER REALIZE HOW CSEFCL TOUB ELECTRIC LA Ml'
SOCKET CAN BE! v
When we think of electricity we naturally think of lights, because
that is the way it 1b usually employed, but new uses and improve
ments are constatnly being Invented. -
Among the many conveniences that electricity has made possible are
electric ranges; heaters; irons; toasters; chailng dishes; hair driers;
; percolators; combination sets, etc. ' ' . , '
All operate from an ordinary lamp socket, by the simple turn of a
button. . .
Many of these articles we carry regularly in stock; the others

Go over it point by point. We ask you to do so
just as carefully, critically and systematically as
vou inspected txAe competing automobiles.
The United States Motor Company is the builder
of the Big, New Stylish Maxwell Special ' ;
It is proud of the car. . I .
It is confident of its superior excellence.
It thinks there is no other car quite like it , or
nearly its equal within $500 of its price.
: But, in fairness to the prospective buyer, this
Company believes firmly in the mutual benefit to
- be derived from a real comparison of automobiles.
We think you will gain by such a course, because
.whon you eventually do buy, you will know exact
ly what your money is obtaining for you in com-i
We believe this Company also will benefit, be
: cause our product is RIGHT.
So, we ask every man interested in the purchase
of a medium-priced automobila to go over the list
carefully and critically. v
V Find out what are said to be the strong points;
' of each automobile. Also look for the absence of
those qualities which you will learn to want in
; your car.
After going through this little educational
course it will not take long come to seei and try
the Maxwell Special.
First, let us consider POWER.
In what other car, within $500 of the price, did
you find 36 horset power?-, .-h- v.., - v ; .t Z 'X
In what qther car, of the class, did you find. aiv.
engine the equal of the Maxwell. Special's 4 lx
5 1-4 long strike, smooth-running motor? With
its large valves, adjustable push rods, self-contained
automatic oiling system, Stromberg carburetor,
dual ignition with Splitdorf magneto and batter
ies, you hav more power at your command than!
, you would have in any competing car. ..........
. .Now, as to STYLE. We know you will not find ,
the equal of the Maxwell Special its graceful, ,
beautiful lines, its Columbia Honeycomb type rad
iator, deep, black upholstering and the quiet, sup
erb finish of Royal green with Wedgwood green
Then, first and last, analyze the price.
TJnequaled factory facilities of this Company
with its fourteen great plants have made the price
of the Maxwell Special a possibility.
We are confident any other manufacturer would
lose money on this automobile at this price.
. We believe you will share this confidence after .
That's the reason we ask you to make it.
