If they had an old rug or j chair or stove that they had no further use for. the amounts that could be realized for it were not large. Commonly they made little effort to sell it. A great many people were prejuicd against second hand articles. Since the prices on everything went cp, the demar.d for second hand stuff has tremendously increased. If a person puts an advertisement of a used rug for sale in a newspaper, he may g?t answers by the dozen. A great many people who feel unable to pay the prices asked for new stuff, are all the time looking at the newspaper ads to see who is offering som? used articles for sale. Also people frequently insert want advertisements indicating that they want this or that article. This ha made it possible for families to sell for good prices a great deal of merchandise that otherwise they would have given away or which would have been eaten up by moths in their attics.

They have established 92 Factory Branches all over the country. Perfecting U. S. distribution so that you get a fresh, live tire every time you buy a U. S. Tire. So when a man once decides on U. S. Tires he knows what he stuff of that kind that has substantial value. A good second hand article that has wear in it, will bring every cent it is worth, if you take pains to tell people about it. Consequently the classified advertising columns of The News have become a kind of exchange, which hundreds of people examine in each issue to see what can be bought and what can be sold. This provides ready cash for a great many articles that formerly would have been regarded as unsalable. THK next time a friend comes to you all excited about some wonderful tire bargain 7 ask him how much value he ought to get for each dollar of tire money. It's astonishing that any car owner today should not know all the tire service he 13 entitled to. Nor how to check up between the economy of par quality on one hand and big discounts, surplus stocks, discontinued lines and retreads on the other. Henley avenue.

One of the most distinctive characteristics of our political life 20 years ago, was the so called 'boss" system. It does not seem to be so powerful now. At least less is heard about it. There was a time when in many states and cities, the political action of each such unit would be pretty well in the hands of a single man. These people were marvellously skillful in political leadership. They ment he gets the pledged word and reputation of the largest and most successful tire concern in the world. A sound reason for the fact For two years U. S. Tire makers have been telling the American people all about tires. They have laid open the tire business from every angle.
