The demand for this wonderful low-priced labor-saving machine, on the easy terms of the liberal club
plan, is so great that men in nearly every town and village are enrolling eagerly, far beyond the capacity
of the Hoosier company. "
Here in Davenport dozens of women have asked us if we would 'organize a Hoosier Club. We tried to
get 100 cabinets for tins big event, but it was no use. "Fifty is the limit," the Hoosier people said, and
that is all we can get. To be fair we announce this opportunity alike to you all. Who will be the lucky
50 women? I . .
