BARBER JEWELER 1015 N. Water St. WE HAVE MADE OUR CHOICE Every man entering business faces the question of whether he shall "get the money" or "build a business." Usually there is a vast difference. When we opened this store we decided to BUILD, because we wanted a permanent success. Building a business, as we see it, means building your own personalities into it--putting_ every ounce of energy, experience and good will into giving real value for every cent taken in over the counter. We ask your business on this sound basis, and promise to make every effort to deserve it. 109 EAST NORTH ST. v DECATUR. ILLS. j KMNIBCfll To Nominate Candidates for County Offices.
