A four-cylinder car consumes two or three
times the gasolene and oil used by a single
cylinder Brush and the cost of maintaining
and operating the four-cylinder car is six to
eight times as much.
The Brush costs only one cent a mile to
operate. The winner of an Economy Con
test drove his Brush 100 miles at a total
cost of 39 cents another ran 43.4 miles on
one gallon of gasolene. As one of many
instances of its wonderful durability, a Brush
owner states after 10 months' usage that he
has driven his car 10,000 miles, with no
expense for repairs of any kind.

Itose Festival, after which they will
spend their honeymoon at the sea
shore. They expect to return In
about two weeks. Both are popu
lar young people of the city and
many friends will extend best wishes
for happiness and prosperity.
The advantages of the single-cy'.indei
economy, efficiency and simplicity have
long been recognized in Europe, where they
make single-cylinder c.irs costing five to
eight times as much as the Brush.
The Brush is a real automobile, as highly
developed on a smaller pl.m as expensive
large cars. Each car is equipped with shock
absorbing devices under the Truffa.il'.-H irt
ford patents, top, storm front, gas lamps,
generator, tools, etc.
Come in and see this car. Let us show
you how it will save you time and money
and increase your business.
