Why Not Try Them. [advertising rebus]
A broadside with two rebus puzzles for Lion Coffee, a popular coffee brand made by the Woolson Spice Company of Toledo, Ohio, and Kansas City, Missouri. If consumers solved both rebuses, and sent in a picture of the Lion Head logotype “cut from Lion Coffee Wrapper,” they received a book by American humorist Edgar Wilson Nye, popularly known as “Bill Nye.”
