DEATH OF VERNE E. SHIRKEY
In the early hours of Friday morn-
ing. September dOth, 1921, as parents,
physicians and attendants watched
anxiously at his bedside, the spirit of
Verne Elburn Shirkey winged its i
flight u> its everlasting home.
At the time of his death. Verne was '
in a sanitarium in Alpine, where but ■
a few hours before he had been oper-
ated on for appendicitis. Though sick ;
but eight days, his condition was crit- j
ical from the start and little hope
was held out for his recovery from tne j
time he was stricken.
Verne Elburn Shirkey. who was the
son of Mr. and Mrs. G. R. Shirkey, of
this place, was horn in Falkland, Mo.,
May 2nd, 1906. He came to Fort
Stockton, from Springfield, Mo., with
his parents, something over four years
ago. He was well known in our city,
having been messenger boy for the
local Western Union Telegraph Co.,
for a number of months. He was con-
scientious and faithful in the perform-
ance of his duties and was well liked
by those he served and those with
whom he came in contact.
Funeral services were conducted,
Saturday morning, at the Methodist
church, by the pastor, Rev. F. L. Glis-
son, assisted by Eld. S. R. McClure,
the Boy Scouts, of which Verne was a
loyal member, attending in a body.
Following the funeral services inter-
ment was made in East Hill Ceme-
The bereaved family have the sin-
cere sympathy of their many friends
in their hour of deep sorrow.

One Size Package
All our skill, facilities, and lifelong knowledge of the
finest tobaccos are concentrated on this one cigarette—
Into this ONE BRAND, we put the utmost quality.
Nothing is.’oo good for Camels. They are as good as it’s
possible to'/l pke a cigarette.
Camel QUALITY is always maintained at the same high,
exclusive standard. You can always depend on the same
mellow-mild refreshing smoothness—the taste and rich
flavor of choicest tobaccos — and entire freedom from
And remember this! Camels come in one size package
only—20 cigarettes—just the right size to make the greatest
saving in production and packing. This saving goes
straight into Camel Quality. That's one reason why you
can get Camel Quality at so moderate a price.
Here’s another. We put no useless
frills on the Camel package. No “extra
wrappers!" Nothing just for show!
Such things do not improve the smoke
any more than premiums or coupons. And
their added cost must go onto the price
or come out of the quality.
One thing, and only one, is responsible
for Camels great and growing popularity
—that is CAMEL QUALITY.
Here’s what’s next.
