B WE HAVE JUST BEEN ADVISED that our ■
■ new Reo the Fifth, "the Incomparable Four," Kg
■B demonstrator has arrived —by the time you read |H
19 this it will have been unloaded and will be at
ifl our show rooms. M
jff WE HAVE BEEN BESIEGED by scores of per- H
MM sons eager to get a first look at this latest edition O
of the famous Reo the Fifth—"the Incompar- Bra
able Four." EM
DO YOU KNOW that since November 10th,
there hasn't been a Reo car obtainable at the
factor}' —last of the 1914 series was shipped on NH
that day. 3H
DID YOU SAY SOMETHING about "hard 9j
times"? Reo has never known such a thing.
Reo value—Reo service—Reo cars —have
always commanded a market greatly in excess MS
of the possible supply—always. SB
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A TIME when, ■
even with its wonderful factory facilities, the !■
> Reo Motor Car Company has been able to fur- g«|
nish all the Reos needed to fill the demand. j&
Never a time.
SO THE EAGERNESS of buyers to see this new jnß
Reo is nothing unusual.
AND THIS LATEST Reo the Fifth—this 1915 ipl
Sjj edition of that famous car that has set the wfl
?<*'« standard and maintained the lead in its price- fll
class for several years—is destined to increase Stf
its popularity and its leadership.
H NEVER WAS SUCH VALUE. You read, of ||
NH course, in the big two-page ad how it was pos- 81
sible to produce a car of such size—a bigger as
well as an improved and refined car —at £125 K
■■ less than formerly. Now £lO50 —l^ a t season mb
LET LS REPEAT—a bigger, better car—up to
the minute in every detail of design and finish
§*£ and equipment, including the best one-man top H
sjj| made, and for less money. No other could do
gg) TOU CAN'T appreciate fully what this #J|
Shjj value is until you have seen and driven this Mi
fjn car - m
£ IF YOU COME EARLY this morning you will 111
■£ be one of the first —you will see it almost as
gJk soon as we do. 1 here'll be a crowd—for many,
HP like yourself, have been waiting to see it. [l|j
Ejl AND, OF COURSE, we need not remind you
that, with no Reos obtainable during the past HN
two months and thousands having already
jfe' decided they will join the Reo contingent "and latf
jKjj be sure" for the coming year, your order will eß|
Ek have to be in early to insure an early delivery.

The new company, headed by E. A.
Williams, Jr., has taken over the Lima
factory, together with all vehicles on

Eastern States. It starts with ample
equipment and financial resources to
place the organization in a leading po
sition in the manufacturing world.
Mr. Williams, who has a wide reputa
tion in the truck industry, was formerly
connected with the Willys-Overland
Company, having been in charge of
several of the factories operated by
that company outside of Toledo. He
has been active head of the Overland
truck interests since December, 1913.
In relinquishing its hold on the
truck business the Willys-Overland
Company does so only because it de
sires to concentrate its entire efforts on
the" big Toledo organization alone. T'ue

will g'.adly furnish free transportation
to visitor's from their headquarters to

C. J. Stevens, manager International

that for the benefit of International

complete service station, which will be
at the command of all International

trucks may be.
This supply house will carry an
abundant line of motor trucks of the
popular size, also a complete line of
truck parts, thus saving'valualble time
and extra expense to their hundreds
of patrons. Theso vital features, to
gether with the reliability of the man
ufacturing company and the sales
agency back of it, speaks for the per
manency of the International Motor
Truck department. '
Merchants can no more disregard
the advantages of the motor truck
than their daily papers and telephones.
Business firms now recognize the fact
that new trade ia necessary and horso
and wagon delivery will limit them to
a restricted territory and volume.
The motor truck permits a large ex
pansion of trade, and the Internation
al is constantly making deliveries to
progressive firms who believe in trade
The smaller firms formerly held to
the idea that the motor truck was only
practical for the large concerns, but
have now broadened their views, lost
that business timidity and are purchas
ing trucks as a matter of economy and
The many up-to-date features of the
new 1915 models of International
motor trucks are bot'h interesting and
pleasing to the many visitors and pur

HIGH AND LOWEED ITOR
Mr. Roberts, Representative of Haynes,
America' 3 First Car, Gives Some
According to Geo. W. H. Roberts, of
Roberts & Hoiii, distributors in this
territory for the Haynos, America's
First Car, "there is as much difference
between the light, high speed, high ef
ficiency motor and the low speed motor
as there is between a greyhound and
a slrepherd dog. The greyhound is
built for speed. He is long and slender
—the real stream line effect, so to
speak. The'shepherd dog is heavy and
stocky, and comparatively slow in his
action. The strength of either is the
same, and the difference in the cost of
upkeep, if there is any, is in favor of
"The light, high speed motor, such
as is found in the Haynes Light Six, is
a distinct type of motor. Its recipro
cating parts must be light—not fo» in
creased power, but for balance at high
speeds and quick acceleration or get
away, as in the case of the greyhound.
The : overall efficiency of the ear de
pends much upon the ratio of power to
"The high speed motor may reach
speeds well up towards 3,000" revolu
tions per minute, while the low speed
motor rarely exceeds 1,500 revolutions
per minute. The bore is smaller.
"As far as the wear and tear of a
high speed motor carrying any from that
of the low speed type, there is not
necessarily any more difference than
there is in two types of dogs. The
greyhound can run at high speed -for
hours without fatigue, where the shep
herd dog will wear out. So it is with
the high speed motor. It is a desigu for
endurance, and represents real egiueer

CLASSIC WAR POEMS
Selected by J. Howard Wert
No. TWO MOURNFUL GEMS FROM -
BY THOMAS MOORE
The versatile poet, Thomas Moore was equally at home in every department
of poesy whether sacred, deeply sentimental, or martial. The two gems here
presented from his "Irish Melodies," both sad, equally breathe the love of liberty
and the lesson that death is better tfljan chains and slavery.
THE MINSTREL BOY
The minstrel boy to the war is gone;
In the ranks of Death you'll find him.
His father's sword he has girded on,
And his wild harp slung behind him.
"Land of song," said the warrior-b^rd,
"Though all the world betrays thfce.
One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,
One faithful harp shall praise thee." J
The minstrel fell: but the foeman's chain
Could not bring his proud soul uniler.
The harp he loved ne'er spoke again,
For he tore its chords asunder.
And said, "No chains shall sully thee,
Thou soul of love and bravery;
Thy songs were made for the pure and the free;
They never shall sound in slavery."
AFTER THE BATTLE
Night closed around the conqueror's way,
And lightning shew'd the distant hill.
Where those who lost that dreadful day,
Stood few and faint, but fearless still 1
The soldier's hope, the patriot's zeal,
For ever dimm'd, for ever crost—
Oh who shall say what heroes feel.
When all but life and honour's lost!
The last sad hour of freedom's dream
Aud valour's task moved slowly by, *
While mute they watch'd till morning's beam
Should raise and give them light to die!
There is a world where souls are free,
Where tyrants taint not nature's bliss;
If death that world's bright opening be,
Oh! who would live a slave in this?
