would escape from Jhe ties" that bind
them' to their better or worse halves
as the case might be in the 'two
cases. Their trials and tribulations,
as tnresnea out by this sterling com
pany of performers, furnished plenty
oi comeay to keep the crowds in a
right good humor all the way through
tne nour that it held the boards.
Ludlow Allen, Mae Kerina and Jack
Wright, in v the leads, did themselves

was as a pleasure vehicle., Itireniaiivi.

and was enjoyed :invthe evenings'- and
on holidays. . - In - the course of time
I was presented with the opportunity
of a half holiday provided the day's
work was accomplished during J the
morning hours. Necessity, being the
mother of invention, I took the- car
down to the office for the first time.
During .the .morning it was. employed
to save time in making several nec
essary calls and 1 o'clock found a
big day's work packed away with a
half holiday as a reward.
This experience started me1 think
ing. To think is to act, and soon my
car was whizzing me down to work
every morning and bringing me back
at night. Often it stood in front of
the office all day, but as time went by
It was employed more . and mOre in
the .making of calls, that heretofore
had been made on foot or by street
car. The passing of time found my
automobile playing a large part in the
week's activities. Once word was
passed to me that the boss had com
mented upon the amount of work I
was getting , away with. Later came
the. first raise and then a series of ad
vancements. Customers of the house who found
me calling upon them with greater
frequency than men in my position
in f .competitive houses commented
upon it; some suggested that the
firm should at least have paid for
the gasoline. In the beginning. I was
inclined to; agree with them; but, as
I took stock of my increased efficiency-and
the increased salary it
waf registering in each, week's pay
envelope I came to the conclusion
that the carwas many times paying
for itself, and In a way that pleased
everybody to a far greater degree

In re-reading the above-it comes to
me that I have simply set forth

all, add but little if anything to what
you have already written so forcibly.
You have truly said that the automo
bile makes the trip to and from the
office a delight. Parked near' your
office it puts every other office in
town within a few minutes reach.. It's
a wonderful thing to use with a pros
pect who is too busy to 'come to see
your proposition wherever it may be
located, but can be induced to step
into your car with the promise that
you will bring hjm right back And

salesmanship . is. the car outside to
take him and show.1 him to just what
extent he can bank on 'yo'a and your
town by- giving ::him-a view of the
town, particularly - that part' of it on
which his ' business can and should
have" a direct bearing. Then there
comes times when the boss wants to
catch a train or some one to meet
him at the station. And the man
with the, automobile is: right there
with his' car. Bosses are good to cul:
tivate as well as customers. They
are also the best kind of business
company. Furthermore, if you are
the last man to, be with him, during
that fifteen or more minutes you are
driving him to the station, you are
the man through, whom he will give
final instructions for carrying put any
last minute ideas that come to him
and with responsibility comes oppor

I hope it has been made clear that
I am not advising any young man to
get a car merely to drive a hack for
the office. You will make more
more money driving a taxi. Boiled
down, the man with an automobile
does not have to, look for opportuni
ties to use it to advantage in his
business. The opportunities will pre
sent themselves.v Use your automo
biles as you would use the telephone
or the telegraph when it will do
something quicker and better than
the usual way. And do not worry
about who pays for the small amount
of ' gasoline used. It comes directly
out of your own -pocket at first,' but
It comes back to you many fold in an
incredibly short space of time.

to R. R. Bellamy or any good druggist
and get a package of Rheuma, the
guaranteed prescription. Use the en
tire bottle, and if you don't think it
has given you quick and sure relief,,
say so, and you can have your money
back. ' f
Isn't that a fair offer? Can you see
any deceit or red tape about it? What
chance do you take? Absolutely none.
Then get a bottle of Rheuma. today
It's reputabl physicians prescript
tion, altogether different from reme
dies usually prescribed, free from nar
cotics, and perfectly harmless. Rheu

force the uricacid from the swollen

pleases you in a day; it makes yon
hopeful and happy in a week. It has
released from bondage rheumatic suf

relief. It should do as much for you
