Monuments of Beauty -monuments of dignity and endurance; monu ments that harmonize with what you would choose as the proper environment for the rest ing place of the departed-are made of Dark Barre Granite, the Rock of Ages. This is the closest possible reproduction of Dark Barre, but only the rock itself can give you full appreciation of its matchless blue gray tones, its fine, time-defying texture. Dark Barre Granite polishes until its surface is as smooth as glass. The beauty given to it by Nature is preserved and enhanced by the process. For permanence, for freedom from flaws, for everlasting service as a sentinel in your cemetery lot, you should specify Dark Barre Granite. Any monument dealer can tell you about it. A handsomely illustrated book, "The Rock of Ages," will be sent you on request. Boutwell, Milne Varnum Company Department H Montpelier, Vermont Quarries at Barre, Vt.
