Just a Word About the Undertaking Business.
We desire to impress it upon the
minds of the people of Clarendon Coun
ty that we carry a full line of Under
taking Goods and Coffins from the low
est price to a nice 875 Casket.
We have recently bought and will
have here in a few days a brand new
first class hearse. In purchasing this
hearse we feel that we are furnishing
something that has been long wanted
in this community.
Our hearse will be sent to any point
of the county wherever needed and our
funeral director will go along with the
hearse if needed.
We wish also to impress it upon the
people of Clarendon County that we
carry a full line of Furniture of every
clasi, and what is better, we are in a
position to sell our line of Furniture
cheaper than tbe ordinary furniture
dealer, for our salesrooms are upstairs
out of the way and the same men that
work in the dry goods department sell
Furniture: hence there is but little ex
pense in selling, so you see clearly that
we can and will and are selling Furni
ture cheaper than regular furniture
