"We are just half an hour from town," says a farmer who lives seven miles out and owns an International car. "I went to town today, starting half an hour after my neighbor went by my gate with his team, and I passed him just where the main street pav ing begins. We visit every friend within thirty miles, hear lectures, see entertainments, have a better time in every way since I bought an International Commercial Car An Ohio business man says "When I am using my International Commercial Car the expense is aboutthe same as with a team, but when it is not in use it is not eating, and, therefore, costs nothing. After ayear's experi ence, I find the repair bills to be no more than the bills for shoeing, harness repairs, wagon repairs, painting, etc, and there is the added advantage of getting around three times as fast." When you own an International Commercial Car you make the trips you used to neglect because you did not want to take the horses from their work. It can be used in all sea sons when the road is passable to horses. The wheels are high enough to give ample road clearance. Solid tires give good traction and eliminate many tire troubles. The engine is simple and powerful. It will ray you in many ways to know all about the International Com- niercial Car. A letter brings full particulars with many interesting facts and figures.
