.22 CALIBER REPEATING RIFLE

Handling .22 Short, .22 Long *nd .22 Long Rifle Cartridges

This rifle, the Model 1906, will, without change or readjustment, handle either of these three cart- ridges, which makes it equally well adapted for target or small game shooting. It takes down easily and packs in a small compass. The list price is only $10.50 and it retails for less. It is, without doubt, the best value in a rifle ever offered.

One of Our Leaders

This two cylinder, two cycle, three port reversible engine, equally as pow- erful running either direction, weight 128 lbs., coil for each cylinder. Swings a 16 inch 2 blade propeller 800 to 900 revolutions, depending on the design of your boat. Drives an ordinary 18 to 20 ft. speed boat 10 to 11 miles an hour. One customer writes : "I can cut circles around any of the same model boats as mine that have twice the rated power." This is a very satisfactory letter to us, but must be more satisfactory to our customer. We would like to furnish you with one of these engines so you or your report would be the same. More power for the weight than any engine made. We have built this same size over 6 years. Send for catalogue of all sizes from 2 to 60 H. P. Very simple; all parts interchangeable. Reliable agents wanted.

THE distinctive feature about my Willow Furniture is not the price, but the quality lots of Art Furniture is sold at less, but you would not want it at any price when placed alongside of YOUNGER'S WILLOW FUR- NITURE.

The handsome set, illustrat- ed above, sells for $12.50. It comprises three comfortable arm chairs, made of Willow. That means coolness and comfort.

"TheAngler'sFriend"

Patented Dec. 5th, 1905

If a wet line is placed on an "ANGLER'S FRIEND," where the rays of the sun or the dew cannot reach it, it will dry quickly and with no damage whatever to its strength. By drying the line thoroughly the Angler will derive much pleas- ure, as well as profit, and avoid the disagreeable experience of getting sand and dirt into the gear- ing of his reel.

An Angler using good lines cannot afford to be without "THE FRIEND."
