An Enviable Reputation
Already Won
Hundreds of dealers who drove new Cleveland Sixes
from the factory in Cleveland to their home cities have
written the factory expressing their admiration and confi

Its power and endurance have
already won the Cleveland an

not surprising, for skill and sin

men who have contributed their
genius to the building up of one
of America's finest quality cars.

view of the Emma Goldman type of "Red"; it is,
to no little extent the view also of the parlor so- ;

MAN NOT BORN OF WOMAN
K
Pushmataha, the great Indian chief ar.d friend of the white men, once ruled the primal forests
that beautiful secion now known as Choctaw County.
of west Alabama and held his court in
Pushmataha was as kind and gentle as he was brave and strong, but the Indian nature caused
him to sometimes boast of his superiority. His favorite boast was that he was not born of wo
man, but sprung, full gr own, ready for the chase and the battle, from the heart of a great oak.
Down near th old home of the great Pushmataha lives Mr. I. N. Thrash, prosperous, happy
farmer and country merchant .His postoffic is Pennington, Ala., and his front yard is the great
open country that is known as the yellow pine belt of north Choctaw.
For many years Mr. Thrash suffered the tortures of the evil one with Rheumatism and an ag
gravated Stomach Trouble. Finally he quit drugs and found Nature's own great remedy at his
very doors.
After taking six bottles of FERRALINE he was completely cured and has since been able to
enjoy life and accomplish great work.
Ferrai ine. is a Nature Iron Tonic, and with th ? Iron is blended a peculiar and well-balanced com
bination of Magnesium, Lithium and other haelth-giving dements.

The other day
A fellow came into our office
And he said
I wish that I had done
Like Jim Brown did
He bought a lot, Jim did, and
He built himself a little home
The first year
And he planned it so he could
Build more onto his home
The next year
And he did, and
Now he's got a fine big home
Worth a lot of money
And he owns it
And it's his.
And 1
Came to town about
The same time
Jim did
And 1 rented a house
Like a lot of other fellows
And the landlord sold the house
And I had to move
And I did
And I rented another house
And the landlord sold that
And I had to move again
And all I got now is
Some rent receipts
And I've got to move again
—Ain't that hell?
