I Why 'Usco'--
Make something wonderfully good and you say, "This is
mine," you call it by your name. That is exactly our case.
We have made a tire so fine, so sturdy, so responsible
that we want it known as ours. So we named it 'Usco
(U. S. Co.).
Because we have put our name on this tire because its
success was a matter of business pride, of business honour
we pledged ourselves to see that it "made good" and it has.
Think of it a really wonderful new anti-skid
tire priced at only a little more than plain treads.
New Prices of Usco' Tread Tires
30 inch x 3 inch, $10.40
30 inch x 3 2 inch, 13.40

Fifteen years ago a man of sixty, broken in
health, found himself out of a job and with less
than $500 in the bank.
Today he owns, near Topeka, Kansas, his own
poultry farm. It gives him a good living.
Was it easy? No, it was a struggle. But he has
won by applying to poultry raising the hard
headed common sense of a practical farmer
the same kind of sense you find every weeK hi
