Look at the cars, consider the values, and when your astonishment has somewhat abated, ask for a
copy of the "advance catalog," and read the story or how these prices for these quality cars were made
possible. 1 . '
For without that explanation you could not understand, could not accept these values as genuine.
It's an interesting story, too-absorbingly interesting and of vital import to you if you contemplate the
purchase of a car this year.
It explains why, when it was impossible for the maker to materially reduce the prices of Reos without
reducing the quality, Reo dealers found the solution, and by dividing their profit with the buyer, placed
these remarkable values within your reach. ' j u
It gives you a glimpse into the inner workings of Reo when you've read it you'll understand and the
better appreciate the policy that has made the Reo success the most substantial and in many ways the
greatest success in this industry. . j ,
As you read you'll feel as if you were talking with the Reo Folk and when you've finished you 11
feel as if you knew them personally. '
And, finally, when you learn the facts that, Reo Dealers having learned, made it possible for them to
co-operate with the factory to make Reo values the greatest values, you'll conclude that a Reo is the car

No Doubt That Resinol
Doe Heal Sick Skin
When you know physicians have
prescribed Resinol for 20 years in the
treatment of eczema and other Itch
ing, burning, unsightly skin eruptions,
and have written thousands of reports
saying: "It Is my regular prescription
for Itching," "Resinol has produced
brilliant results," "The result It gave
was marvelous In one of the worst
cases of eczema," etc., etc., doesn't it
make you feel that "this is the treat
ment I can rely on for MY skin-trouble?"
The moment Resinol Ointment
touches itching skins, the itching
stops and healing begins. With the
aid of Resinol Soap, it almost always
clears away every trace of eczema,
ringworm, pimples, or other distress
ing eruption quickly, leaving the skin
clear and healthy. Sold by all druggists.

The famous botanist was pacing
slowly along the country road, his

Suddenly an eager look swept across
his features, and he leaned over the
low fence enclosing a cottage garden.
He had found a plant he did not know.
What could it be? If only he had a
specimen of It to study!
At that moment a shock-headed lad
strolled along the road and Btopped
to gaze open-mouthed at him.
"I say." called the botanist urgent

pink one in the corner? Do you know
"Uhuh!" said the country boy brief

his shoulder toward the little cottage,
