We Do Not Close for Supper
Admission 5 and 10c
Burglars fear detection, consequently they do most
of their work in the dark. It is a matter of reconl that
well lighted towns, streets, and well lighted stores and
dwellings are burglarized but seldom. Why is it that
Bank and Jewelers usually leave a light burning in their
places of business every night?
Would it not be wise and prudent to have a light
placed on your back porchwith the switch in your bed
room, dr some other convenient place?
The cost is very trivial. Phone No. 223 and let us
tell you how little it will cost.
