RIVALS THE BEAUTY O HE SCARLET TANAGER Co or U. S. Pat. Office The Shift to Duofold is now World-wide It's Replacing Old Pens, Thousands Per Day-On Every Continent Over-size Ink Capacity, Balanced Symmetry-Jewel-Smooth 25-Year Point The New Creation ofthe New Age FROM all important world ports comes the call for the Parker Duofold in ever-increasing vol ume. No distance too great-no wait too long no import duty too high for those who have tasted its balanced fit and jewel-smooth 25-year point. Yet you in America can get this super-writer at the pen counter just around the corner. And now with even the war tax removed. A pen men lend without a tremor because no style of writing can distort this point. A tempered gold point tipped with polished Iridium-guaran teed, if not mistreated, for 25 years' WEAR-not merely for mechanical perfection. The pen that carries that extra ink which will tide you over a few more days, or the few more pages of writing that you don't foresee. A pen that's handsome to own andhard to lose because of its black-tipped lacquer-red color that rivals the beauty of the Scarlet Tanager. Step up to the first pen counter and add to life all Duofold gives. THE PARKER PEN COMPANY *JANESVILLE, WIS.

The Dictograph Products Corporation announces the perfection of a remarkable device which has enabled thousands of deaf persons to hear as well as ever. The makers of this wonderful device, the Acousticon, say it is too much to expect you to be lieve this, so they are going to give you a chance to try it at home. They offer to send it by prepaid par cel post on a ten-day free trial. They do not send it C. O. D. -they require no deposit-there is no obli gation. They send it entirely at their own expense and risk. They are making this extraordinary offer, well knowing that the magic of this little instrument will so amaze and delight the user that the chances of its being returned are very slight. Thousands have already accepted this offer and report most gratifying results. There's no longer any need that you should endure the mental and physical strain which comes from a constant effort to hear. Now you can mingle with your friends without that feel ing of sensitiveness from which all deaf persons suffer. Now you can take your place in the social and business world to which your talents entitle you and from which your affliction has, in a meas ure, excluded you. Just send your name and ad dres to the Dictograph Products Corporation, 1311 Candler Bldg., 220 W. 42nd St., New York, for descriptive literature and request blank.
