Once or twice a week for nearly fourteen years, Mrs. Maertz has beaten, swept and suction cleaned her rugs with The Hoover. She has twenty four rugs; the newest are twelve years old, while S the oldest are eighteen. And she keeps roomers. Even her 18-year-old rugs are still in good condition " My rugs are frequently admired for their bright and clean appear ance, yet I never have to pay to send them out for cleaning-I use The Hoover. People can scarcely believe it when I tell them the age of my rugs, for nothing is harder on your rugs than roomers." And Mrs. Wm. F . Maertz, whose house at 880 First St., Milwaukee, is pictured above, adds: "I have been told by people who knew nothing about The Hoover that it was injurious to rugs. My own experience causes me to believe that rugs not Hoover-cleaned wear out twice as fast. I know that The Hoover has paid for itself over and over by making my rugs last many years longer and it makes sweeping a pleasure." Surely she is qualified to speak with authority! "Some of my friends," continues Mrs. Maertz, "liked my Hoover so well that they sold their cleaners and bought Hoovers. Others are sorry they didn't know about The Hooverbeforebuying. Many people are satisfied with their cleaners until they see The Hoover work. "Personally I have tried other cleaners and am convinced I would have no other."
