Is Founded on the
Merit of the Cigars It Manufactures

Two things will build a big business capital and merit. Some busi
nesses are built on capital and sustained through merit. But capital with
out merit must fail. You hav evidence of the above fact all around you.
Just stop and think and you will recall to mind many firms that began
business on a most liberal scale but that are no longer in -existence.
'The principal asset that the house of Offterdinger had when it began
business years ago was Mr. Ofterdinger's experience as a maker of cigars
,and his knowledge of tobaccos.
"The original output from the Offterdinger factory was small but it
was good, and, unlike most cigars, their quality improved instead of de
teriorating with, the progress .of time.
The big cigar manufacturing house of Offterdinger today owes its
existence solely to the merit of Offterdinger's four brands of cigars. And
it is this self-same.merit on which the house of Offterdinger will rise to
still greater heights.
Offterdinger's La Anita at 10c, Deer Head at 10'c, After Dinner, at Sc,
and Ofty at 5c are four recognized cigar standards that have made a
.reputation in the Nation's Capital thatisextending to otherl cities," and

without the aid of business promoting-'salesmen.
' Remember, that money invested in Offterdinger cigars means money
invested right in the Nation's Capital where some of it will come back

to 'you, for Offterdinger cigars are
made in a Washington factory py "
Washington cigar makers. If Offter
dinger cigars were only just "as 1
good as other brands at the same price, you ought to buy them for the
above stated reason. As Offterdinger cigars are better than similar 'priced
smokes of other makes you are doing both yourself and the pity of Wash
ington an injustice when you put your money into out-of-town brands.
You have but to smoke Offterdinger cigars and make a comparison
to convince you of their superiority. The fact that they are retailed right
in the city in which they are manufactured, thus eliminating the extra
packing and delivery expense, enables us to give you a better quality
than we or anyone else could afford if Offterdinger cigars were made
miles from here and shipped to this city. ., .)
