A Really Great

of power and great dramatic in
tensity. Therefore moving pic
ture patron will look forward
with keen anticipation to his la
test picture, "Riders of the l'urple
Sage," which will be shown at the
Tip Top Theatre on Wednesday
night, Dec. Hrd.
Adapted from Zane (Irey's fa
mous novel of the same name,
"Riders of the l'urple Sage" tells
a story that breathes all the rug
gedness, virility and vastuess of
the great West in the early pio

to portray those sterling qualities
of manhood which have made nini

Its scenes laid in Utah, in the
days when unscrupulous leaders
of the Mormon Church were try
ing to spread the tenet of poly
gamy, this great photoplay tells
of the abduction of a girl by a
dignitary of the Mormon Church,
of the long hunt of her brother
for the guilty men, and of the
filllll Mif I lilmiit U'tioti T.iiavitii na'
played by Mr. Farnuin, avenges

Startling gun duels, thrilling
rides along the edge of frowning
cliffs, sinister intrigues, and sen
sational revelations of the mys
terious practices of the early
Mormon elders all form a tre
mendous sweep of action that
mounts into a tremendous climax,
when a huge rock is dropped
down a narrow gorge to crush a
body of horsemen that are pur
suing a man and girl. The horse
men are killed, but the rock seals
up in the narrow valley the man
and girl forever.
Running through the picture is
an absorbing love story that tells
of the great love of a strong man
for a good woman.

Reasons Why Michelin Tires
Have B pcome So Populate
Consider the following facts about Michelin Universals, and see if you do not agree that
you should use these tires. Now is the time to reach a decision which, if properly made,
will spare youmuch expense and annoyance during the months ahead.
1 UNEQUALLED EX-
I rtKiiN(E.. i ne illustration
.jsQK I shows Michelin demonstrat
ing tnc woua s first pneumatic
automobile tire, which he in
troduced in 1895. For 24
years Michelin has concen
trated on pneumatic tires exclusively. No other
lire maker has this unequalled experience.
2 BETTER MATERIALS.
The quality of the materials
used in Michelin Casings and
Inner Tubes has always been
the best that money can buy.
This well-known fact largely
accounts for the superior
durability and economy for which Michelin Tires
are famous the world over.
the thickness of Michelin
Universals in comparison with
other makes and you will find
they contain more rubber and
fabric than do other tires.
All this extra material is of
the highest quality, as already stated, and hence
means greater mileage.
4 EXTRA WEIGHT. "A
simple comparative test will'
also show you that Michelin I
Universals weigh twelve to
fifteen per cent more than
other tires additional proof,
that Michelin are more gen.
made and have greater mileage built into!
This weight test is important.
5-BROAD FLAT TRACTION-SURFACE.
f I ' flat eraser wears away more
I . slowly than the small rubber
jf I ' on the end of a pencil. So.
, with tires the tread that is
" ' broad and flat lasts much
longer than one with small projection. Note
Michelin's superiority in this respect.
6 MODERATE PRICES.
Despite their high quality
and superior design Michelin
Casings and Inner Tubes are
moderate in price. The truth
of this statement is easily
proved by comparing Michelin
prices with the prices asked for other tire of
anything like the same quality.
In view of the fact that Michelin has devoted 24 years and all his world-wide resources
to the manufacture of pneumatic tires exclusively, are you not willing to, test,Michelins
on your own car and be convinced?
Nothing proves Michelin
superiority like actual use
