Why take chances with eyes?

Good light costs so little

Eyesight is priceless . . . good light is cheap. Why take unnecessary risks? You can buy a genuine 100-watt Edison Mazda lamp, the size that is so fine for reading, writing or working, for only 25 cents, and the smaller sizes, 75-watts and under, for only 20 cents. These good lamps not only help guard against eyestrain… they protect your pocketbook by using electricity economically. And they don’t burn out too soon. Why take chances? Look for this mark on every bulb you buy.

The street car passenger occupies six square feet of traffic space. The automobile passenger requires an average of 44 square feet. In thirty of our largest cities, street cars are now carrying over 30,000,000 passengers daily. Attempt to put them in automobiles, and the street—which cannot easily expand its curbs—would be too narrow to hold them.
