continued as long as the war exists;
it is as necessary for tho well being
and comfort of tho boys on tho firing
line as are tho guns and ammunition
necessary for the defeat of tho enemy,
and its support should bo "made a
business proposition. Every entlivldual
and every firm should at once conclude
that Red Cross support Is part of his
monthly expense; that he should
vclfos. But to provldo those 1000
sweaters in Sixty days there must be
no slackers; every woman who can
knit must do her bit, while those who
do not now knit must learn. Tho call
Is urgent; It must be met; and Tho
Trlbjino belloves that the patriotic
women of Lincoln county will riso as
a tower in this emorgency and meet

Point for Point the Greatest Motor Truck Value on the Market
100 Per Cent in Value100 Per Cent in. Service
80 Per Cent in First Cost
In Comparison With any Truck in its Class '
FULTON TRUCKS are'loWst first cost and lowest in maintenance. Ail tlie'efforts of
the Pulton organization are concentrated on the production of a single 1-ton model
which shall stand supreme In its field
The "Pulton' has a wheelbase of 13G inches; is sixteen feet eight indies over all
with a loading platform of nine feet. The weight of the chassis is 3,200 pounds and is,
retail at only $1,420 P. O. B. factory. When you take into consideration the unusual
quality construction which will be seen by referring to specifications, its simplicity and
ruggedness and compare this price with all competitors in the field (the average price ,
of all lio ton trucks manufactured today being $2,150.00) you will see what a wonderful
dealer's proposition we have to offer.
We know of no manufacturer taking so small a profit out of his product no manu
facturer giving so much at such a price The Pulton truck is the lowest priced, full 3,000
pound capacity truck offered in any market of the world, and when compared with all
others it must be obvious to the buyer, that tho value in Pulton trucks is a 100 per cent ,
standard in the commercial vehicle field.
To make a substantial return in the manufacture of Fulton trucks thousands are pro
duced each year and continuance of their large sale depends solely upon the fact that a
full 100 per cent return in service is given upon the investment of the buyer. The most
expert engineering skill to be found in America has been employed in the design of this
truck. We offer the utmost in value and service.
