A Card

I wish to inform my friends that I have added to my already large stock a first class Ice Casket which will be a great benefit in hot weather, and a splendid five lighted Candelabra for the use of those who wish it. Have also a very good set of harness, and am having a pair of bobs made for Winter, all to be used in my increasing business. I mean a fair and honest trade, and war against fancy prices. I defy competition on the same quality of funeral goods. Very thankful for past favors, I'll ask a share in future. J. H. Hughes Millburn, Ill.
