P. Clark, the progressive proprietor of the concern, who is one of the best known toy men in the United States.  Since becoming established in Dayton in 1909, he has taken active part in the counsels of the “Toy Manufacturers Association of the U.S.A.” a recently organized body designed to promote the buying of American-made toys and to promote the interests of this industry in general.  Every member of organized labor should insist on only American toys for his children.  The buying of American toys is especially recommended since Dayton is rapidly being recognized as the center of the industry in the United States.  All toys made by the Dayton Friction Toy Works are substantial in construction and possess real novelties not found in goods made by other concerns.  They are guaranteed to be high grade, up-to-date, and saleable.  All are of metal construction and equipped with a cast iron flywheel, in which the friction idea of locomotion is carried out.  Anything in the way of toys on wheels that will run is made by this concern; methods in use at the plant are of the most recent type and prices quoted on the mechanical toys made by the concern are as low as can be found on the market.

W. O. JOSLIN & COMPANY

Miamisburg, Ohio

 

                Here is a concern that stands prominent among the leaf tobacco packers of the great Miami Valley.  There is, perhaps, nowhere in the nation a district so rich in its tobacco raising as this same Miami Valley, and the concern known as W. O. Joslin & Company of 231 South Fourth Street, Miamisburg.  The concern was established a quarter of a century ago and now gives employment to fifty people.  As packers of leaf tobacco, successful in every respect and highly regarded by the dealers in this product, the above mentioned concern is without an equal.  Twenty-five years of service in the rich tobacco growing regions of the Miami Valley have given these men a wide acquaintanceship among the growers and they have made many lasting friendships in this section.  It is of interest to note that the concern, W. O. Joslin & Company , is known to practically every tobacco grower in this section.  The firm is known to be friendly to the cause of organized labor and counts among its very good friends, many of the men who are prominently identified with the union labor movement.  The men who compose the company are men of high standing in this community, known and universally admired for their honest dealings and courteous treatment.  We have no hesitancy, but rather take great pleasure in saying a word of commendation for the concern.  We know it is reliable and trustworthy in every respect.  Long years of experience have enabled its members to deal with the tobacco growers in a way that commands their full confidence and W. O. Joslin & Company may well be regarded as one of the foremost companies engaged in this line of endeavor in the country.
