The Hoosier Mfg. Co. 1147 PM The End of A Great Offer: Tomorrow Your Last Chance to Have the New Hoosier Put in Your Home for $1 Will you decide now to come down tomorrow and settle the matter once for all, or wil' you let tomorrow df irt by--and then realize you are too late to decide; because the Hooskr Plan of Sale postively will close tomorrow? The above telegram explains our position in regard to this Hoosier Club. It may be a long time before another such club can be arranged. Act now, you will never regret it. Scores of women are in your state of mind. They are reading this final call tonight. And many who have postponed as you have are making up their minds tonight to come down tomorrow for a final decision. A choice still remains between "White Beauty" (selected by 3 out of 4 women) and the Hoosiers with "Oak" interior. But the numbers are few and you cannot hope to get one if you delay. You incur no obligation by coming, so let other matters wait tomorrow while you settle this important question. Yon could scarcely imagine a decision of more importance to you. For the new Hoosier is a wonderful lahor-saver--already used by 700,000 women. It saves miles of steps and hours of valuable time. It saves health and good looks. It is very low in price-and on the liberal terms of the Hoosier Plan is the Cheapest Kitchen Cabinet Ever Built. The Hoosier Plan Is Simply Thsi: 1. $1 puts any Hoosier you select in your Home. 2. $1 weekly quickly pays for it 3. The Low Cash Price fixed by the Factory prevails strictly. 4. The Sale is under direct supervision of the Hoosier Company. 5. No interest. No extra fees. 6. Yonr money back if you are not delighted with your Hoosier. The 40 Features which we have described in detail this week, are backed by the full guarantee of the Hoosier Company. For 16 years this company has built the famous H O O S I E R and In all that timÂ« has never added an "mprovement" that proved a failure. But unless you sit down In front of this beautiful cabinet and tee Its wonderful conveniences yourself you cannot hope to realize how much, labor this new Hoosier would save you. (1) See for Instance, how tha bis. roomy, metal table, slides out 16 inches over the has*. Notice how an exclusive Hoosier patent prevents this table from warping. 2) Observe especially how cler- erly the Inside of a door space above thÂ« ta-ble is utilized to brinsT things you need often nearest your hand. The sliding table enables you to open the doora without removing anything from the table, and the insides of thÂ« doors save any danger of knocking things ovÂ«r by reaching across the table for thos* supplies yon uee score* ot times dally. WHAT POSSIBLE REASON can remain to deprive you of the use of this Hoosier? Only the small number of Hoosiers left and the certainty that more women will come than we can supply.
