This is highly important when time is so valuable. Purchase of Wyominjr stocks of merchandise has much to do with keeping Wyoming dollars in circulation longer in our state.

They make it possible to employ more people and their earnings are distributed in channels of home trade. The greater portion of the dollar that is kept home, the greater our wealth and prosperity. "Buy in Wyoming" is not a new slogan but its meaning cannot be improved upon. If every person in Wyominjr were ever conscious of this simple expression, there would be no such thing as a depression in this wonderful state. TRAILERS BUSSES TRUCKS TAXI CABS Per capita ownership of automobiles in Wyominjr is far above the average.

The buying power of Wyoming people is greater than the average, likewise their earnings. By reason of the large ownership of automobiles in this state the demands for car accessories, parts, equipment, is proportionately large and in this connection the owners of cars have a distinct advantage in being able to obtain the highest calibre of service in securing the above mentioned automotive supplies.
