Knobs-Not Mere Ridges The knobs stick out from 'Nobby' Tread Tires far enough to protect the tread from nails, sharp stones, and glass. The knobs are big enough and are so scientifically placed that they add still more resiliency to an already marvelously resilient tire. The knobs on these "Aristo crats of the Road" hold the ground with a tenacity that says "I will" with every revolution of the wheel. All this because the knobs on 'Nobby' Treads are vigorous, protruding knobs-not mere ridges on a tire. 'Nobby' Tread Tires are the largest selling very high-grade anti-skids in the world.

It surprised them to find one so much better. You have wondered at times if there was a better cigar than your regular smoke at the same or less money. If you are smok ing a 10c straight or two for a quarter, there is. But don't take my word for it. Your taste should decide. A Big Saving Cigar value is based on one thing only-the fineness of the leaf. There can be no inflated values in J. R. W. cigars, because the sales men's salaries and expenses and the store up-keep have been eliminated. These savings are made in your favor. Many men answer my advertise ments merely from curiosity,andadmit it when they write. I am glad to hear from them. I want to satisfy your curiosity also. When you smoke your first J. R . W . you realize that you have found an unusually sweet cigar - smooth-burning and mellow. The leaf I use is selected for me from the crop grown in the Vuelta district of Cuba. Only the best of the year's output is used. Proper aging and careful cigar-making com bine to make the J. R.W. a delightful smoke.
