The Limit of Life.

the generally accented limitation cf

determines its duration, seems to be
between 50 and 60; the proper care of

Arthur Burris, the young colore!
You may really need
this or t'aat, eren
though it is not an ab
solute necessity. For
the lady of the house,
a new gown or a new
hat; for a man, a new
suit or a new rig this
may help to "make an
Impression" at a time
or place where it will
mean dollars and cents
In such cases it really pays one to "go beyond his income." The
question may be how to be able to go beyond it. Not only how to go
beyonn, but how fo do it safely.
It's no longer a question with many in this community, as ther
have found' they can borrow the necessary money here and repay us
a little at a time and hardly miss the money.
We loan from $10 up on household furniture, pianos, horses, wag
ons, cows, and other personal property, all in a quiet way, without pub
licity, without removing the property, and on the best rates and easiest
terms in the city.
