One Car Load of Drills Unloadec
And More Coming
Do you know that I am in the
drill business? Of course you
know, but do you know that I am
?oing to sellyou adrill this spring
The only way you can avoid buy
ing a drill from me is for you to
keep it a secret and then some
day rush to town and buy from
the other fellow without me know
ing anything about it. If you give
me the same chance you give the
other fellow I will sell you a drill
You must admit that I have a
good drill and some of you that
know will say I have the best
drill made. Then if I make you
the right kind of a price what can
stop you from buying from
me, it is up to you to
make the best deal. Just
write me a line now and let me
know the size drill you want or
telephone me. Do it right now
while you think about it. The
drills that I sell are the Monitor
and Ideal, take your own choice.
