THE terrific shock of a broadside on a man-of-war is the most destructive test that
can be applied to incandescent lamps, yet Bryan-Marsh MAZDA lamps stand it 50
per cent better than old-fashioned carbon lamps, and in addition give three times as
much light and better light at the same cost current and lamp included.
Nothing like the broadside test ever occurs in your home and you don't need to wor
ry about breakage or fragility if you buy Bryan-Marsh MAZDA lamps in the blue Con
venience Carton containing five lamps.
The Quality Lamp
Drinking the contents of a six
ounce bottie of a patent medicine
i an opiate nearly caused the death of

The bey was playing about the
ouse this niorn:ng when he found the
joule, which was uncorked. He
tasted the contents and, as the medi
cine was sweet and pa'.atable, he
drank the entire contents. A mo
ment !ater, suddenly seized with
nausea, he began crying and attracted
I the mother's attention.
The bottle lying empty on the floor
showed the source of the trouble and
Mrs. Swensson at once called Dr. P.

reported the child out of danger.

You can have at home exactly the same kind of
lamps as are used on modern battleships the

York Subway trains and made the lighting of
automobiles by electricity possible if you will be
careful about the name

when you purchase.
Prices reduced again last July.
Before You Pay Your Next
Light for light, every carbon lamp uses throe
times as much current as a
lamp. It will pay you to make a complete re
placement of all carbon lamps with MAZDA lamps
before you pay your next light bill. At no extra
cost you will then get three times as much light,
or the same amount of light three times as long
better, whiter light.
