Some persons in this parish seem very
to have the impression that the pie.
Wonder Engine is a cheap engine.
SNothing could be further from. and
the truth- We do claim, how- - rl
ever, that you can pay a higher w t
price and get no better machine
for your money. The reason for
t this is that there is no better en
e gine on the market today than |
S the Wonder, as far as the ma- ceed
terial, finish, workmanship is
S concerned, while every Wonder n a
st Engine sold in this parish hFs very
demonstrated .their .wonderful, ljlge
of endurance, power and reliability,. ters
Ve even in the hands of an amateur.
U- Wonder Engnes do not sell for'
ad an exorbitant price because:
1. The Wonder Manufacturing vin(
at Co. is composed of people who mo
actually work in their own fac- cepi
ae- tory and there is no heavy over- Nei
0) head expense for. high salaried
nt 2. We sell you an. engine and '.
of all that is necessary to operate
he it and all other attachmehts that o
s you may wish added can be put p
in on at cost. 'With other machines wh
S you have to take the attachments cal
R1 whether you want them or not it
n and that adds greatly to the cost -]
17 f the engine-in some cases as
te much as the engine itself.
Vn. Ask our agent to prove the state
;und ments we have made. Wesell ou
e easy terms-thereby showing you
oore that our engines are as, standard
mn- and reliable as sewing machines.
