Did You?

If You

Did Not

The "XC" Corona
Now you can own a typewriter with a keyboard
designed for you, personally! Let us give you
all the facts about this wonderful new machine.

You were indeed unfortunate
for those who followed our
advice and took one of the
programs for Captain Apple-
jack home and used it for
a sachet, placing it in the bot-
tom of a bureau drawer or
trunk. Those who did have
reported a most delightful ef-
fect, even after many days.
The perfume used was
Blue Rose

TELL us the kind of work you do,
and we will show you your own
keyboard--fitted with the very char-
acters you need !
Think of the joy of being able to write
just what you want to write instead
of turning out makeshift work with a
typewriter that lacks the keys you
need most.
Why this maphine
fits your work so well
First of all, it has 90 characters, 6
more than the ordinary office type-
writer. That is the secret of its won-
derful convenience -its adaptability
to your work.
It is not a freak machine-nor is it
complicated. It is simply a regular
Corona, with every modern improve-
ment-with 6 extra characters
added to the keyboard.
Choose your own keyboard
Do you want a full range of fractions ?
You can have them. Or we can give
you chemical or medical symbols,
mathematical signs and exponents, or a

full set ofaccents for foreign languages.
With a machine like this, typewriting
becomes a real pleasure. You'll do
better, neater work with far less effort.
And the price is low
Only $55 for this 90-character model,
including the neat carrying case-and
with a keyboard of your own selection.
(The price of the 84-character Corona
is still $50.)
It's a typewriter you'll be proud to
own, a fine-looking machine, and just
as good as it looks ! It has every Co-
rona convenience, including the wide
carriage, the two-color, automatically-
reversing ribbon, back spacer, margin
release, etc.
Proved Durability
Corona has an eighteen-year record of
Proved Durability. It is the best type-
writer investment you can make.
Don't delay. Let us show you this new
machine. There's no reason why you
should deny yourself the pleasure and
the profit of owning a ty'ewriter that
is really adapted to your work.

We sell the full line
