Send us a list of your requirements for 1926 and we will quote you money-saving
prices on quality supplies. Our low prices are based on only one grade of goods—the
best. We have no second grade, for if low price is not backed up with quality it be-
comes expensive for the buyer.

Our 1926 catalog will be in the mails about January 20th. If you are not on our mailing list, write today to have your name placed there.

In fa many beekeepers' whose own profits an temporarily small are often wont to blam their troubles largely on the manufactur of beekeepers' supplies.

PROFIT

WHO GETS THE DOLLAR YOU SEND US ?

As a matter of fact, every season in the past decade it might have been as profitable for the stockholders of the G. B. Lewis Company to have had their money invested in good safe 6 per cent bonds as in this Company. The effort of clipping coupons is negligible compared to the worries of running a big plant such as The Home of Lewis Beeware..

The above illustration shows the average annual profit to the stockholders of the G. B. Lewis Company for the past five years, and how the balance of every dollar received was otherwise spent as economically and purposefully as possible.

In presenting this information it would be interesting to have a statement from other manufacturers of beekeepers' supplies for a like period. Such figures would be particularly interesting in comparison with the workmanship of Beeware and the wonderful distribution facilities afforded American users of Lewis Beeware.

Special quotations given from most points for neighborhood shipments in lots of $100
worth of Beeware or more.
