Notice to the Public.
Having rented the Leota Mills, we will hereafter have sole charge of the same and will guarantee our former customers and friends that all orders for Flour,
Meal and other mill products will be properly filled and satisfaction assured as to quality. Returning thanks for the past liberal patronage extended we respectfully
solicit a continuance of the same for the new firm. Carnahan & Son.
