Some persons in this parish seem
to have the impression that the
Wonder Engine is a cheap engine. L
Nothing could be further from M
the truth. We do claim, how- m
ever, that you can pay a higher
price and get no better machine
for your money. The reason for ar
this is that there is no better en- in
gine on the market today than th
the Wonder, as far as the -ma- O
terial, finish, workmanship is
concerned, while every Wonder de
Engine sold in this parish hes an
demonstrated their wonderful le
endurance, power and reliability, Ai
even in the hands of an amateur.
:.Wonder Engines do not sell for
ai' exorbitant price because:-
Si. The WonderManufacturing
Co. is composed of people who Jo
actually work in their own fac
tory and there is no heavy over
head expense for high salaried
2. We sell you an engine and GI
all that is necessary to operate ke
it and all other attachments that
you may wish added can be put
on at cost. " With other mnachines B
you have to take the attachments
whether you want them, or not
and that adds greatly to the cost
of the engine- m some cases as
much as the engine itself. -
Ask oiir agent to prove the state- P
ments we have made. We sellou sa
easy terms--thereby showing you
that our engines are as standard
and reliable as sewing machines.
