CATHIHN M. G11EEN 24$ WE DELIVER Build While You Live— Why not buy a lot in the cemetery and then come down here and buy a suitable monument and place on your lot? Tou will have this duty to perform some time, why not now? YOU CAN NOT INVEST YOUR MONEY in anything that will give ,you more worth for your money than in a monument. When you buy a memorial it is there forever, and it will last-forever if you buy it from me. I have the best monument that can be produced and we mean just that. You couldn't buy a better grade of granite anywhere in the world because it just can't be done. Not only that, but we can sell you a monument for less money than you can buy the cheapest, most inferior piece of granite at any place. Now, if you have some money and don't want to put it in the bank, come down here and invest it with me, and I will prove to you that you can get more interest than you can in a gold bond. Remember, memorials perpetuate memory. They stand for all that you have ever been in this world, and if you buy a monument from me and not from some carpetbagger or peddler who is just trying to get your money you are going to be safe and sure you have your last resting place marked with a joy forever. Just a few more weeks before Memorial Day. Come in and make a selection from the greatest ,djisplay f , ever shown west of the Mississippi river. W. H. Godden ORES .leeve trtitoehf! New
