Go with me to the cemetery and n .
...
you will soon aiscover tnat tne sud
stantial improvements made are
Chanute products. You will also
discover that there is an individual
ity about the monuments furnished
by the Chanute Marble and Granite
Works that you do not find in work
that-is furnished by outside parties.
I have been in the monument)
business in Chanute. over fifteen
years during which time there was
about on an average of $200 worth
of work shipped in by outside deal
ers and I assure you there is a vast
difference between this work and
that furnished at the Chanute works.
I have not erected any monuments
amounting to over Jioo.oo but what
are of granite throughout and these
are in no cheaper granite than that
I used for my Mother, which,, has
been a standard granite in the
United States for over one hundred
years Aly competitors can not
compete with me on this class of
work owing to the fact that the ex
pensc in local freight and delivering
the same amounts to from 5 to 15
and sometimes as much as 20 per
cent, this, as well as cost of selling
makes considerable .extra expense
which you can avoid by buying at
home.
My competitors say they can sell
cheaper; this is true by using
cheaper material and making
cheaper designs than my conscience
allows me to use. I aim to use only
the best and I carry about fourteen
varieties of domestic and imported
granites. However, some ot my
would-be competitors build rsonu
ments out of Limestone and call it
Marble, the analysis of which is in
line with our native stone. They
back up their material with a life
time guarantee. Well now that is
cons ding when we think that a
monument should last a DEATH
TIME and if it is not built out of a
good variety cf granite it will not
stand against the elements. These
inferior materials are barred from
our large city cemeteries and well
QUI jargC CILJ LtlllLUfiva m.iv. .. w.
they ghou)d for the question is what
... . .. J
would the coming generations uu
with wrecks and ruins of cemetries
that are being dotted with so-called
monnments built out of material
that will deterioate in less than a
decade.
The best grades of graDite is the
cheapest material that should be
used for monumental work; the
same should be worked into pretty
designs and well executed in art.
Do not trust a stranger with fur
nishing, or try to furnish you with,
a would-be duplicate of a flashy
photograph when you can step into
my showroom and select the very
monument you want and at prices
that can not be duplicated by out
side parties.
I am furnishing about 90 per cent
of the work that is being erected m
the Chanute cemetery and I assure
you I can find more dissatisfied cus
tomers out of the 10 per cent that
buy their work abroad than you can
find with the 90 per cent that buy
their work at home
In my fifteen years of business in
Chanute, I have enjoyed a very
good business: as a whole the Cha
aute people have been loyal to me.
You all know me and my methods
of doing business of which I am not
ashamed.
Trusting you will consider these
points In buying a monument, I am
