woman and for a long time was weak
and feeble but Vinol restored my health

strength and for chronic colds I have
ever taken.” —Mrs/F ANNIE E. Rodgers.

A Handsome Car
WHEN you pay several hun
dred dollars for an automo
bile, why not get a good
looking one—one that you will be
proud to own, proud to drive and
proud to take your friends out in?
Maxwell owners have a just pride in
the handsome appearance of their
automobile for Maxwell Motor Cars
have the same attractive lines, the
same graceful design as the higher
In addition to good looks you
want, of course, a reliable, sturdy and
economical car. But there is no
doubt in your mind on these points
since the Maxwell a short time ago
established the World’s Motor Non-
Stop Mileage Record. Any car that
can run continuously for 44 days and
nights, averaging 500 miles per day—
-22,000 miles in all and without once
stopping the motor —is bound to be a
well designed and well made car
• Any car that can perform such ‘a
wonderful feat on an average of one
gallon of gasoline to every 22 miles is
bound to be an economical car.
We have such confidence in the
Maxwell car and the company be
hind it that we are willing to sell
these cars on partial payments —
and deliver the car to you when you
make the first deposit. In justice
to yourself you ought to know more
about the Maxwell car and our
pay-as-you-ride plan. All we ask
is the opportunity to tell you.
