. What Do Yon Know
About The IV1
THIS is ihe time of the year when more
people are considering the question of
"what car to buy" than at any other time
of the year.
This community has it full share of poople
who will soon he driving their first car or a new
car to replace the old one.
Now, we know that we are going to soil Max
well Cars to a great many of these people de
pending upon how many we are able to acquaint
with the merits of the Maxwell.
The generous value offered in the car is so
evident its pnst record is so full of good perform
ance owners speak so well of it that when the
buyer knows these things, he is eager to buy a
In order to tell as many people as possible
about the merits of the Maxwell Car we are going
to spend a lot of money in the next few weeks in
this paper advertising Maxwell merits to those
who do not know them.
The reason we want to sell as many Max
wells as possible this season. Our future allot
ments will depend upon how many Maxwells we
You may know that the Maxwell markot is a
buyer's market, not a seller's markot broadly
speaking. The demand for Maxwells the country
over is greater than the supply.
For this reason cars are allotted to dealers by
the factory according to the size of the dealer's
We want to make a showing and be in a posi
tion to gel n generous allotment of Maxwells
liereafter. Because the more Maxwells arc sold in
any community, the greater is the future demand.
We realize the opportunity to do an ever-increasing
This is only the first of the several messagos
we are going to print a few days apart concern
ing the Maxwell Car. But we don't expect to be
able to adequately present Maxwell merits in
printed word alone.
If you are one who is going to buy a new car
you will find it decidedly to your advantage to
find out all you can about the Maxwell before you
place your order.
Come in and talk it over with us and let us
demonstrate the car to you. Then, don't take our
word alone, but ask those who now own Maxwells.
Get "posted" about the Maxwell and you will
realize more satisfaction and get more "value re
ceived" for your motor car money than ever
And we are just as willing to have you investi
gate other cars just as fully as you do ours. The
Maxwell will not suffer by the comparison.
Why not start your Maxwell investigation
