A Card From Mr. Craig.
I wish to thank my customers and
friends for their liberal patronage in
the past, and can say that since I
have been in the carriage business
that I have done the best work I
could with such limited facilities.
I have realized almost from the
beginning that this county would
justify a well-equipped shop and a
corps of the best mechanics that the
country affords. Not being able to
accomplish this myself, I have con
tracted with the W. R. Craig Car
riage & Machine Co. and will be
pleased to see all my friends and
customers after the 1st of January,
1898. at the Kuhn & Turpin Shops,
on East Seventh street, Columbia.
