changeless in our policy, ignoring any
quality that fails to rank less than
best. Another fact for you to keep
in mind; everything that is rolled,

and boxed Is warranted full measure.
We stand between you and every risk.
All of the prices quoted are less than
jobber's cost, therefore are very much
