er costs of materials and labor the
Bowser people are able to manufacture
their tanks at a less expense than dur
ing the last year, and so have altered
price-lists in accordance with the low
er costs of production. There has
been no change in the quality of the
materials used. All Bowser tanks
are inspected by the Board of Fire
Underwriters and every one carries
their official stamp of approval. No

than 26 million dollars worth of Fire

It is a very significant fact that for
elgn concerns should handle as much
as American In our own country.
In Life Insurance, strange to say,
the Sun Life of Montreal seems to be
the favorite, with policies in force to
the amount of nearly eight million
The Equitable comes next, followed by
the New York Life.

As a result, Miller Tires are now used exclusively in some
of the hardest services.
They are used on the largest Pacific Coast stage lines.
