Building the Memorial a Present-DayDuty EN and women throughout the country are making the erection of mausoleums, monuments and smaller memorials a task for themselves-for their own supervision-rather than leaving it to others after their departure. More and more is the installation of mem orials in family burial lots being considered a present-day duty. And when selections are made-whether to mark new graves or to stand in readiness for the time when they are needed-the suitableness of Barre Granite makes a strong appeal. BARRE GRANITE The Rock Beautiful and Everlasting is free from flaws. Its texture is sturdy. Its power to resist time and weather is un questioned. Marked beauty-whether in hammered or polished form-combined with density and strength that produce ever lasting qualities-make it the ideal stone for memorials, large or small. Barre Granite in many designs-both pre tentious and modest-may be seen in any cemetery. It is sold by the best dealers everywhere. Ask your dealer to show you specimens of it. Specify that every part of your memorial be of Barre Granite. Barre Granite is the ideal material for columns and other ornamental building purposes. Write for illustrated booklet, "Memorial Masterpieces," showing monu ments of prominent people throughout the United States.
