    • Hereafter the furniture and undertaking business of H. B. Christine, or Christine Brothers, will be known as Christine & Danford. Mr. Christine has for some time been looking for a person to whom he could sell an interest in, the establishment owing to the fact that the business has grown to such an extent that he found it impossible to look after all the details and management, and feeling satisfied that in Mr. J. H. B. Danford he ahs found the man of whom he was looking, took the gentleman in as a partner.

Mr. Danford comes to Wooster most highly recommended. He was for a number of years engaged in the furniture and undertaking business at Pleasant City, Ohio, and holds a certificate in class A from the State board, indicating that he is thoroughly competent to act as a funeral director.

While the equipment for undertaking is large and fully up to requirements, yet it is the intention of the new firm to at once add a very handsome and modernly constructed funeral car. It is the hope of Messrs. Christine & Danford to so conduct the business as to return the patronage of the ____________.
