I To The Tupelo Journal, 1 Tupelo, Miss. I Gentlemen: 1 We are very grateful, and 1 desirous of thank the people of 1 your town and vicinity for there past patronage, and for the char acter of work they have selected from our numerous designs, and honored us with contracts of the same. The Monument business, in the past twenty years, has undergone a great change, but has changed greatly for the better. From the highly artistic and elaborate class of work, we now manufacture low, plain, heavy and mechanical structures. The old class of orna mental carved work is no longer in demand. It requires better me chanics to execute and better ma terial lor the display. Several years ago our attention was called to Georgia marble, we investigated, and found it excelled all other marbles for this class of work. At first we found it diffi cult to convince the people of its __il ■» « um uy perseverance it has conquered. Our White Geor gia Marble has gained its own vic tory. Ninty per cent of our sales last year was Our White Georgia Marble. It is the hardest and heaviest marble iu the world. It is the best chrystahzed marble in the world, so perfectly ehrystaliz ed it is uext to impossible to stain it. It is the most troublesome marble to work, requiring more skill and time to produce the same results thau any other marble. Monuments can be produced at less cost out of Our White Georgia Marble thau out of the best Italian as the duty on Italian marble is more than fifty per cfent of its cost With the above facts before us. why should not Our White Geor gia Marble rauk first with all marbles iu the world, and more especially with us of the South, j Again we thank you for consul-j ering us worthy of your counsel, j We said buv Our White Georgia Marble and you bought 't. We i guaranteed perfect satisfaction then, and we continue to do so. We will gladly auswer all cor respondence, whether directed to us here or to our Tishomingo Marble Co., at Corinth, Miss.
