You must wear Fur Garments to protect yourself if you want to see many winters. When buying Furs, you should know something about the different qualities, as there are a great many different kinds of Furs that will wear, and give you your money's worth if you get the right kind. / If you don't know Furs, then go to a reliable practical Furrier and you won't be deceived as hundreds of people do every year. Who dont?/
We are the only practical place in Guelph, and we are in a position to sell you a first class article at a right price for the goods you get./

Orders left with us will receive prompt attention. We pay special attention to remodeling and repairing Furs. / Please come early with this kind of work, as we are always very busy after 1st. August./ Complete Stock of Coats, Jackets, Caperines, Fancy Neckwear, Novelties, Muff, Gauntlets, Snow Shoes, Moccasins, Gloves, Hats, Caps, & c. // CASH FOR RAW FURS."
