When you purchase property and make improvements on same, should you sell, you naturally expect to get the money back which was spent on improvements. Notwithstanding that Elmwood Cemetery has spent over $5,000 on improvements within the last year, yet they have not increased their prices, but naturally expect to get more than at present. Therefore it is to your interest to purchase now, as money will be saved; at the same time, you can secure a better location now than later on. While Elmwood has kept up with the modern methods of the best cemeteries, yet it has only one section that has rules which limit the size of individual grave monuments. All others have no rule pertaining to size, or number of them used on a lot, neither do they regulate or prohibit curbing, or flowers yet we discourage too much o? either, or anything that is detrimental to the beauty of the grounds, When Elmwood Cemetery was started, it was run under the assessment plan, that is, certain amounts according to the size of the lot, wore charged annually for care. It was soon discovered that the tlan would not work, as some paid while others would not. After Imwood was organized and bought the Elm Leaf Cemetery, all lots it had sold have been under the perpetual care plan. Elmwood I also taking cars of the former Elm Leaf lots, and this uniform appearance has made Elmwood a beautiful place. The management of Elmwood Cemetery has never taken advan-' tags of any one in the time of their bereavement, sickness, or distress. This policy has made Elmwood many friends, and they sell lots on monthly payments, and having single graves as low as $5.00 proves that it caters to the poor as well as the rich, Elmwood's office is at the cemetery, which has telephone connection and is a few blocks from the Elmwood station on the West End, Powderly and Cleveland car line.
