UpL everybody wants a better dinner than usual. Some people
U*t?w%?j may be willing to put up with inferior meats at other times,
but during the holiday season only the best will do. A, Eichel, of
315 N. Sixth Street, has the best, the very best.
Just think of a whole* pig with an apple in its mouth roasted
crisp and brown. What could make a better dinner? The pigs that
Eichel offers to the people of Richmond are simply splendid'and
would roast to a turn, and the aroma?oh! how hungry it would make
a man. Eichel's steaks are large and thick and tender and juicy, and
his roasts are the very finest in Virginia.
They Fairly Melt in Your Mouth.
With a pig at one end of the table and a magnificent saddle of
venison at the other it would matter little what was on the sides.
Or instead of the venison there might be a beautiful roll of spiced
beef or a splendid round of corn beef. Eichel's meats are the very
finest and tr.ey are ail native-Virginia meats.? ,
There is no western refrigerator meat at Eichel's. It all comes
from the fine grazing farms of Virginia, andis just exactly good enough
to please the people of Richmond.
The excellence of Eichel's meats is attested by the fact that he
has recently made a large shipment of beautiful spiced beef to New
York and another shipment to Florida.
Eichel's Large Establishment is Now
FuSly Stocked for the Holiday Trade.
He has enough high-grade meat in his cold storage to last for
a month, and every piece of it is a choice as it is possible for meat to
be. Eichels has recently received a consignment of the finest mut?
ton?forty beautiful sheep from the famous1 Beaver Dam Farm,
owned by Joseph R. Anderson Jr. This mutton cannot be excelled.
These sheep come from fine imported stock.
