Hostler to Engineer

Through the I. C. S. of the

For ten years I have been em. ployed in the mechanical departments of various railroads, and have read almost every book for informing a man on the locomotive. But I have learned more in twelve months' studying in the 1. C. S. than in the whole ten

years. The difference, resulting from my Course, in my last month's pay more than paid

for the Course itself. When I began my Course I was a by the founder of the hostler; but, as a result of my I. c. S. training, I am a "WHITE BUTTON"

WHY is this So? Because we make OVERALLS with an eye single to the INTERESTS of ENGINEERS. WHAT are the features that so appeal to Boginemen? Among the many we specify the following:

FIRST and FOREMOST: They are Union Made Garments. Look sharp for the BUTTONSI "Sweet, Orr & Co." stamped thereon. Look for these letters when you buy our Coats, Overalls or Pants.

SECOND: They do not Rip. THIRD: They do not Shrink. Never fear that they will "crawfish" an inch or two up the legs and arms after they are washed. Our goods are shrunk, so they will shriok no more, before they are made up.

If every man knew of the value, the help, the benefits, to be derived by wearing an 0-P-0 suspensory; there would be very few men without them.

An 0.P-C suspensory will help every man as much as any one thing can. Nut because it will develop his brain or his muscle, but because it will do away with the one strain which every man experiences a little strain at first, but when multiplied by the number of seconds in a day, means a big loss of nerve energy .

Ask any vigorous, right-minded man, who wears an O-P.C, what he thinks of it. His answer will be a revelation to you.

Your drugglst has 0-P-suspensories and can give you a copy of our booklet " The Struggle for Supremacy." It tells why, under the rush and grind of modern life, every healty, normal man should wear an O.P.0 suspensory.

If your druggist does not have our book send us his name for a free copy.

Every draggist is authorized to refund the
money if purchaser is not entirely satisded.
