Name WINTON;
Used by Competitor
SEE BARGAINS BELOW ,
Realizing the prestige of the name "WINTON" .SIX," ono of
our most TYorthy and alert competitors has used it in his adver
tisements, claiming lie could save "any one contemplating pur
chasing a 1912 or 1913 WINTON SIX enough money .to make it
worth nis while to call at the place of business of this worthy
competitor." ' .
Of course, this brought more real, live prospects to our worthy
competitor than any ad. he could have used, mentioning only the
names of the cars he was handling. '.
But. what did he have to offer in a bargain in a "WLNTON
SIX"! Only' this: A credit memo for $1500 (now in our pos
session), with the following notation on the face of it:
"This Is credit memo on purchase of a 1912 or 1913 '
. WINTON SIX and la good through any branch
house of the Wlnton Co. and not through agents."
Did he expect to sell this credit memo? No.
Did he add to his list of prospects? Yes.
The Answer. The acr. accomplished that which it was intended
it should. , ; .
Are these bargains below fakes? NO.
j "The Winton Co. guarantees every statement of Wln
ton six advertising to be true wltnout qualification."

Pierce is a good car, we admit, even worth, of WINTON competi

belongs to us; we took it as part payment on a WINTON SIX,
believing it would find a ready sale; that we have been mistaken
is our loss and to your advantage. We have had it for months,
reducing the price daily. Now we invite an offer. . I)ont bo afraid
