WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN WALNUT, IOWA IN 1916
THE CEMETERY TENT
The most cordial appreciation and heartiest thanks of the community are due to Mr. Lee Staman for his compassion and persistent efforts to secure the tent to shelter the people at the grave of departed friends. It shelters the man who prepares the grave from the burning heat and the storms of wind, rain and snow. It is large enough to shelter a large company of mourners and friends and no rain falls into the grave upon the casket.
It was used for the first time at the funeral of Mr. Millard Pope, January 22.
When the grave is finished the tent is folded up and laid away until needed again. If some one would provide a small truck to carry it to the cemetery house and wheel it inside where it would be ready for use at a moments notice, the thing would be almost perfect.
Having purchased the Furniture stock and Undertaking business of S. R. Comer, I am now prepared to take care of your wants in my line promptly and satisfactorily. I extend a cordial invitation to all of Mr. Comer’s old customers, and as many new ones as may desire, to call and get acquainted, examine our stock and become familiar with our low prices and the high qualities of our goods.
We are still continuing the 10 per cent discount on all goods purchased at this store.
The special discount applies on cash purchases of $10.00 or over.
We earnestly solicit your patronage and will do everything in our power to make shopping in our line a pleasure as well as a profit to you.
We were fortunate in retaining the services of the present efficient undertaker, Mr. J. W. Forbes, who will have charge of that department for the future.
With best wishes to all we are yours for business and pleasant dealings.
