Have I Tested Your Battery
this Month?
Twice a month is not too often to get inside
facts to find out whether enough water has
beexr added whether the charge has been kept
up to the proper point whether avoidable
losses have occurred.
A test takes only a few minutes.
Just a little precaution now may save you later from
the inconvcniencc of a motor that refuses to turn over—
from lights that arc dim when they should be brilliant—
from actual damage to your battery.
When you comc in be sure to remind us that you want
to look at the Still Better Willard Battery which is the
only battery with the "Bone Dry" principle that is your
absolute assurance of getting a battery as new as the day
it left the factory. .-a.
