There are no other institutions like them anywhere. The fact that they are a revelation is found in the almost unanimous expression "Who would have thought it?" Few there are who know or have surmised the thought, ingenuity, and care that is constantly spent by us in providing, to the polyglot nations of the world, that small but eminently useful article, WATERMAN'S IDEAL FOUNTAIN PEN. There are 210 distinct and separate operations in the making of every Waterman's Ideal. This covers the conversion of South America's best Para rubber and North America's purest gold into the perfect pen. In each operation every employee is keyed to the ultimate viewpoint of producing fountain pens that will write with perfect ease and evenness, be entirely ink tight and safe, strong, lasting, and fine appearing. It is our continuous aim to please the individual writer. In Regular, Safety, and Self-filling Types Booklet on Request Avoid substitutes Ask for Waterman's Ideals-at the Best Stores Everywhere. L.
