D An EVINRUDE enables you to enjoy the pleas ures of motor-boating without the expense You buy the motor only-a portable power plant that can be taken anywhere in its carrying case as easily as a valise. Arrived at your destination lake, river, or seashore-you clamp your Evin rude to the stern of any rowboat (the work of a moment), give the flywheel a quarter turn, and you are off! The motor runs four hours on less than a gallon of gasoline and drives an ordinary rowboat at a speed of from 7 to 8 miles an hour-a canoe 10 to 12 miles an hour. Let us send you (free, of course) a handsomely illustrated booklet describing this wonderful little marine motor that numbers among its users Peary, the discoverer of the North Pole; Stefans son, the explorer; Theodore Roosevelt, who purchased two Evinrudes for his South American expedition; the Governments of 22 countries, including the United States, and thousands of sportsmen and pleasure-seekers in all, parts of the civilized world. There is an Evinrude dealer in your town; we'll send you his name on request. Just say: "Mail me a copy of your booklet and tell me where I can see an Evinrude."
