AULNE NURSERY. Many inquiries have come as to whether the Aulne Nursery will be continued, following the death of Mr. Remer. The business will be continued as usual. I have been with Mr. Remer for many years, understand his policies and the business generally, and will seek to maintain the same high standard which he set. Quality stock, right prices and fair treatment. Your patronage will be appreciated. Chris Nelson, manager.
