What's the latest in Batteries?
Battery improvements are every day affairs.
' .Important improvements come only once or
twice in a decade.
t Experts agree that the most important battery"
improvement in years is the perfection of Thread
ed Rubber Insulation by Willard-the invention that
indefinitely postpones the need of battery insulation
We carry a full stock of Bone Dry Batteries
every one as BRAND NEW as the day it left the
factory. You're protected against delay in getting
a battery and against getting one that isn't in
every sense brand new.
, Ask for a copy of the booklet "196,000 Little
Threads." It tells the story of this remarkable bat
tery. We test, repair and recharge storage batteries,
and always carry a full supply of battery parts, new
batteries and rental batteries.
