business BOOMING AT SEXTON'S,
James Sexton & Sons have been doirg
a very large business for the past few
weeks in monuments,'.statuary and head
stones which they have sold to people in
various parts of the country and have
erected for their customers. The fact
that this firm is one of the largest in the
country and is most widely known, has
given their removal sale wonderful pro
portions. . Then too, their prices during
this sale have been about half the regu
lar rates, and terms of sale are being
made very easy to buyers who require
time in which to make payments. Al
though the sale will last but a short time
longer, there are hundreds of very de
sirable monuments and headstones ot all
kinds still unsold which intending pur
chasers will do well to examine at once
bucn an opportunity will never occur
again. The monuments must be seen
and the prices learned in order that the
