Techau Tavern Gives Away Car

A most unusual attraction for a café is the sumptuous Flanders electric automobile which ornaments the main floor of the Techau Tavern. Naturally it attracts a good deal of attention, and will continue to do so until December 23, when it is to be presented to some lady who is so fortunate as to hold the lucky number which will make the automobile her very own, without money and without price. There is sure to be a notable gathering of the fair sex at the Tavern every day between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. and from 9:30 to closing time, for it is during these hours of the day that every lady will receive a coupon which may turn out to be the lucky one that entitles her to this wonderful car. Manager Morrisson is to be congratulated upon adding one more irresistible attraction to the many that go to make Techau Tavern famous. The first ten numbers drawn will be published in the daily newspapers on the day following the award.
