In the matter of water supplies and'

Yet rural sanitation remains the
great problem because of the predomi

ar.d because of the fact that water tor

health organization is lacking in

HE GETS POST AT TOKIO
THE dawn of a new prosper?
ity rises today on America.
The election is over.
Bumper crops have come
from the fields. The farmers' bins
are bulging. The railroads are
buying. The steel mills are run?
ning full blast again. Many believe
the American peopie are beginning
the most prosperous era of their
On the crest of the prosperity
wave will ride only those alert, far
sighted houses which project them?
selves into the future and prepare
for it. Here is a big and interest?
ing problem for them: how are all
these products, this grain, these
cottons, these textiles, this steel
and this machinery going to be
carried to the ultimate consumer?
The railroads will take care of
their share as usual. But the
railroads do not carry the goods to
the ultimate consumer. For every
piece of goods that is hauled by
railroad 100 miles, is hauled o\'er
street or roads 5 miles by horse or
automobile. The extent of road
transportation is today way beyond
the belief of the average man.
Wheat, for instance, is hauled
to the railroad by horse or auto?
mobile. The railroad hauls it to
the mill and then on to the city.
The horse or automobile hauls it
to the grocer and from him to the
ultimate consumer. Thus the story
goes. Are your horses abls to take
care of the increased business? -y?
Yours?or the Other Fellow's?
Have you enough horses to take
care of the increased business?
Don't buy more horses. Buy
motor trucks. They can work
twenty-four hours a day if neces?
sary. They can haul three times
the load. They can cover a
greater area of territory. ' They
reach out and get new business.
6^ ton 5 ton 3^ ton 2 ton
They never tire. They travel as fast
at the end of the day as at the be?
ginning. They do not die suddenly.
They do not consume on Sunday.
Motor trucks are increasing at
the rate of about 100 per cent per
year. They are being used now in
every line of business. Nearly
every house that has bought one
motor truck has bought more motor
trucks. Sixty-two per cent of the
Alco trucks we have built were
purchased on reorders. That is the
evidence. The testimonyof nearly
a thousand Alco owners is against
Within a year Alco trucks hare
risen from sixth to a command?
ing position. They have behind
them a company with a capital
of $50,000,000,?a company of 77
years' accumulative transporta?
And bear this in mind: sixty
five per cent of all Alco owners are
rated by Bradstreet and Dun at
$1,000,000 or over. Big business
houses are shrewd buyers. They
seldom purchase mistakes. Nearly
every one of these big business
houses has bought more Alco trucks.
This is a good guide for the smaller
business house, for it can avoid the
danger of an unwise purchase if it,
too, selects the Alco.
We sell the Alco truck on a
scientific basis. We are not so
much interested in the immediate
future as in the ultimate business.
Therefore, a year ago, we established
the Transportation Cost Bureau.
This Bureau will determine
for you just how much your horses
aie actually costing you, will blue
print your horse delivery system,
reroute your hauls, estimate if you
can employ motor trucks to advan?
tage, determine how many you
need, the size, the type of body,
and will show you what die auto?
mobile equipment will save over
the horse equivalent. The saving
runs from 15 to 40 per cent, de?
pending on the type of business.
The service rendered by this Bureau
is without charge to you.
Appointments are made in order
of request. Our telephone number
