filth around with them. They are maggots before they are flies.
Flies may infect the food you eat. They come to your kitchen or to your dining
table, fresh from the privy vault, from the garbage can, from the manure pile, from the
cuspidors from decaying animal or vegetable matter, or from the contagious sick-room
with this sort of filth on their feet, in their bodies and they deposit it on your food,

A New Model
The Standard Visible Writer
Yes, the crowning typewriter triumph is here!
It is just out-and comes years before experts expected it!
For makers have striven a life time to attain this ideal machine. And Oliver has won
again, as we scored when we gave the world its firs| visible writing.
There is truly no other typewriter on earth like this new Oliver "9." Think of
touch so light that the tread of a kitten will run the keys!
The new-day advances that come alone on this machine are all controlled
by Oliver. Even our own previous models-famous in their day-never
had the Optional Duplex Shift. It putthe whole control of 84 letters and characters in the little fin
gers of the right and left hands. And it lets you write them all with only 28 keysr the least to operSTfcJ
of any standard typewriter. Thus writers of all other machines can immediately run the Oliver Num
ber "9" with more speed and greater ease.
This brilliant new Oliver comes at the old-time price. It costs np
more than lesser makes-now out-of-date when compared with this
discovery. For while the Oliver's splendid new features are costly- -we have eqaulized the added ex*
pense to us by simolifying construction. Resolve right now to see this great achievement before you
spend a dollar for any typewriter. If you are using some other make you will want to s?e how much
more this one does. If you are using an Oliver, it naturally follows that you want the finest model. ;
1 ry /?> - r^rwttf Remem^er tn?s brand-new Oliver "9" is the greatest value ever given inra
I ? K^CtXZS Cl LJuy? typewriter. It has all our previous special inventions-visible writing, auto
matic spacer, 6 1-2-onnce touch-plus the Option?! Duplex Shift. Selective Color Attachment and all these othjej
new-day features.
Yet we have decided to sell it to everyone everywhere on our famous payment plan-17 cents a d?y! Now
every user can easily afford to have the world's crack visible writer, with the famous PRINTYPE, that writes
like print, included FREE if desired.
