It may be found in the humblest cottage and in the most pretentious mansion. It appeals to the workingman because it is a mild and inexpensive bever age which promotes home sociability, relaxation and comfort. With the wealthier class beer is a papular beverage because it quenches the thirst, improves the appetite and aids digestion. Capital and labor, both, have learned that the moderate use of beer means sobriety, steady nerves and a healthy body, that beer is the great liquid food, just as bread is the great solid food. Beer hu earned its reputation m the world's greatest food beverage. Its nutritive qualities promote health, its pleasant flavor satisfies and its mildness encourages temperance. Because of these qualities and its absolute purity we recommend the mod erate use of the Real Temperance Drink RUPPERFS Knickerbocker The Beer That Satisfies It is designed to meet a legitimate demand for a food beverage of absolute pur ity. It is made from the most carefully selected materials and subjected to special processes of Brewing, Filtering, Aging, Bottling and Pasteurization, and as a con sequence stands unsurpassed as a safe, nourishing and healthful beverage. Every bottle is absolutely pure when it leaves the brewery and must be absolutely pure when it reaches you. In Bottles and on Draught. Bottled at the Brewery Exclusively.

Most people do not seem to know that. They seem to think it is entirely an after noon and evening affair. THE MORNING IS THE IDEAL TIME to visit the show if you would examine and compare the vari ous makes of cars, their details of construction, finish, etc., at your leisure, and receive the undivided attention of at least one attendant at the Reo booth. BESIDES, IT IS THE MOST INTERESTING period in the day. You'll see more, hear more, learn more than at any other time in the day be cause more interesting things happen. THAT IS WHEN THE KNOWING ONES COME dealers from out of town, and others who are not satisfied with a merely superficial scrutiny or the information they can get from the various "demon strators" who must, in the very nature of things, talk to crowds rather than individuals. IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN PRESENT at the morning session of an automobile show it will be a revelation to you. You'll feel as one who gets a peep behind the scenes at a play. THE GREAT ACTORS about whom you have only heard, or perhaps seen at a distance, come and go and mingle with the rest. AT THE MORNING SESSION of the Automobile Show you will see the men who have made this great industry, going about from booth to booth, exchanging friendly greetings, comparing notes and getting ideas. IT IS A LIBERAL EDUCATION to watch these men and to listen to their conversation as they stop at the various booths and examine various new models. OBSERVE THEM AS THEY PAUSE at the Reo booth the big manufacturers and the world famous engineers; note the length of their stay and the complimentary things they say of Reo design and construction and finish. WITH PENCIL AND PAD in hand you'll see en gineers pause and sketch some admirable detail -of clutch or control or circulation system, starter or some other feature that the Reo engineers have simplified or done just a little better. AS AN ALTERNATIVE in case you really can't afford to devote a morning to the show, and still want to study the fine points of Reo cars free from the jostling crowds of curiosity seekers : WE INVITE YOU TO CALL at any of the three Reo branches, addresses of which are given below, where we can give you the best attention and the fullest information to enable you to decide that important matter, the purchase of an automobile. WHICHEVER YOU DO. we must remind you again, if you would have your Reo when you'll want it your order should be in our hands at the earliest possible moment. BUT ABOVE ALL we urge you to take advantage of the opportunity to compare the new Reo models with all the other cars in the Palace Show, and to examine into details just as minutely as you can. THE DEEPER YOU GO INTO IT the more you'll be impressed with the matchless values represented by the New Reo the Fifth, the "Incomparab1" Four", at $875, and the beautiful New Seven passenger Reo Six at $1250.
