GOING TO 1010 EXPOSITION jJ i to sue what’s “doim**” in the vehicle world is a waste of time and coin, for we are showing today just mssibly more op- what our competitors will find there. There is portunity for misr<‘presentation in vehic les than in any other line. Take a cheaply made body constructed of cheap woods nailed together any old way, skimped here and there, and after the expert painter and varnislier gets done it is hard to tell from a higher priced job. The same coat of paint and varnish hides the bad qualities of the cheap job as thoroughly as the good qualities of a better job! The most expert examination on the floor of a re pository cannot reveal tne wearing qualities of the ve hicles. You can tell the shape of the body and springs, the make of the coupler and the height of the wheels, but that which makes the difference in value between buggies must be left to the dealer who has made a study of the business for 20 years, and whose honesty no one questions, or to that expensive teacher, Mrs. Experience. When we know the pride of the manufacturer—know that he watches every stick of wood, every piece of metal, every axle and every nut; and when the experience of our customers has invariably ver- efied this, no one is surprised that our trade is growing so rapidly. When you see our line you see part of the 1910 Exposition. EIGHTY-NINE SETS OF HARNESS. ORR AND POWELL Newnan, Georgia.. m Whitesburg.
