THE Brush Runabout is the embodiment of an original
idea—no other car just like it.
It’s not a miniature big car, with big car complexity, without
big car stability.
It’s designed especially to serve a certain end—to provide
an adaptable, dependable, economical car that anyone can
drive, everyone can use and no one, who depends on quick,
economical transportation can afford to be without.
Its primary strength is its simplicity—easy to handle—free
from mechanical difficulty.
Its secondary strength is its dependability— proved in the
hands of users by remarkable service in scores of businesses.
And- finally, its low cost of operation and maintenance,
together with low initial cost, make it possible for anyone to
own it. Hundreds use it because it’s cheaper than a horse
and buggy.
SIMPLICITY appeals especially to the woman.
Fear of mechanical trouble is a bugbear.
She often lacks the strength to crank a big car
and the agility to steer it and shift levers in
H crowded traffic. She can handle the Brush with
ease. She never worries about its mechanism.
Sl\e can control it readily. She can give herself
up to the delights of the road.

lessons, and six-year-old Temple often cranked it.
They never had a bit of trouble.
Your boys—or your wife—can drive it as easily.
It would mean health and pleasure for them.
And it's a smart-looking little car, too.
TIME SAVING is the basic economy on
which all commercial progress is founded.
The Brush is quicker than horses or trolley—
. more elastic than trains—since it doesn’t have
to follow steel rails.
It reduces waste by saving time for anyone com
pelled to go quickly and frequently from place
to place—especially for the salesman.
It means increased sales and more money to
employer and employee—and costs less than
livery charges or stabling a horse. One sales
man paid for his car out of this saving. And
it’s a pleasure after business hours.

DEPENDABLE means of getting about is
essentia] to the physician—to doctors their
automobile is a godsend.
No class of buyers is more discriminating in
choosing a car. The doctor can’t afford time
lost in repairs—can’t risk accidents on the road.
That’s why the simplicity of the Brush solves
his problem. It don’t break down. It’s always
ready for work, never tires or goes lame.

Then, too, it’s economical—which is important
when one travels far. Hardly a cent a mila for
operation. Saves at both ends- makes possible
greater earnings, recreation and better work.
OUICK COMMUNICATION is essential in
many lines of business—between changing
points—no time to string telephone wires.
Then, too, you can’t see over the telephone.
The contractor oversees a dozen jobs—or the
architect, master mechanic, or foreman. The
Brush is indispensable to get about quickly.
*1 The contractor uses
It’s just as helpful U the salesman, collector,
distributor, solicitor or district manager.
And contractors do get jobs in the queerest,out
of-the-way places. Get there pleasantly.
NO CROWDED CARS—what a relief to
avoid the crush in going home—tired,
bothered by petty worries, temper ruffled by the
jam—what a humor for the home-coming! Your
wife can stop for you at the store. You can hear
the youngster’s happy shout an hour earlier at
the thought of a bully ride.
Ruddy cheeks and bright eyes come from out
of-doors. You’re buying health for them and
for yourself when you buy the Brush.
It might come in handy to close a sale or get a
bargain or make a delivery—if needs be.
STOP COMMUTING—often wished you
could? If city rents were not so high, you
would, perhaps—
When it came to the real test you’d balk at
giving up your bully country place—it’s worth
the trouble of catching trains.
You can avoid the trouble. The Brush will
bring you in —and more cheaply—won't cost you
two cents a mile.
You don’t have to wait for trains and it’s pleasant
going back and forth.
Handy for the bundles when your wife’s shop
ping—and for a spin at night or a Sunday visit.
HANDY and pleaoant for the young folks,
when you don't use it.
L«t the youngsters drive to the country club for
tennis or golf. You may want to play yourself
and it’s beastly to carry clubs when you don't
need to.
Handiest little car that’s made for that sort of
thing—and will save you a lot of money if you
own a big car.
Twelve to twenty cents a mile's a lot to pay tor
station work. Some big cars will cost you more.

P'CONOMY—there isn’t any car in the world
that’s in it with the Brush for economy.
That’s easily demonstrated. The Rural Free
Delivery service pays small salaries to carriers
and horses eat a good share of the pay.
But the R. F. D. finds the Brush will beat the
horse hollow when it comes to a low cost. Here’s
one example—and there are plenty others:
Fred Ingersoll, a rural free delivery man of Pasadena,
Cal., has a Brush ear which has been run over two years.
It has traveled 25,000 miles, stopped and started 118,000
times, and the engine has turned over 4,000 hour*. Still
in first-class condition and giving perfect service. Cost
lean than £100. Csn any horse do ait much—or coat so
little?
THAT’S REAL ECONOMY PROOF
