fixtures, preparatory to moving their
business there in the near future. It
is a fine stand and they were fortu
nate iii Securing it,
A number of our people were de
prived of the use of their automobiles
until the past week because of the
fact that they did not have their 1921
license tags. They were evidently
late in ordering them and the force at
the commissioner’s office could not
get them out because of the great
rush of that character of business at
the first of the year. Most of them,
if not all of them, have received them
by this tilrie and they are now ready
to go at the §5 mile rate. Moral: or
der your license early:

next door and fixed up for hotel pur
poses, gives him an “annex” which he
can use to his own benefit and to the
comfort of the public. Mr. William

LOSS PARTIALLY COVERED
After the fire it seems a careless matter not to have
had tiie burned property insured for the actual replacement
cost at present prices.
Before a fire—today, for your building, office equip
ment, merchandise, your home and home furnishings—it.
costs but little to insure on the present day replacement
values. It costs much to meet even a part of a fire loss.
If in doubt as to the amount your property can be in
sured for, not excessively but adequately, this agency will
advise you gratuitously.
Our Service is always available.
