THIS is the 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 its full share of people
who will soon be driving their first car or a new;
car to replace the old one
Now, we know that we are going to sell Max

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 past record is so full of good perform

we are going to print a few days apart concern

able to adequately present Maxwell merits in
printed words 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. yThen, don't take our
word alone, but ask those who now owa 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 invest
gate other cars just as fully as you do ours. The
Maxwell will not suffer by the comparison.
