The McKinley Spoon

A SPOON commemorative of our late President, embodying in its design personal events that have become of more than national interest. On the handle is a medallion portrait, framed in a wreath of laurel and palm. Below is an eagle with national flags on a shield, across which is thrown a ribbon bearing the words “Pax alma redit” (Bountiful peace returns). His last words, “God’s will, not ours, be done,” appear on the ribbon encircling a broken column. On the reverse side is the inscription, “William McKinley, 24th President U. S., 1897-1901. Born 1843. Assassinated Sept. 6. Died Sept. 14,” and a palm branch, surmounted by a martyr’s crown.
     The spoon is of very heavy weight and will be sent, pre-paid, to any address on receipt of $1.75.

Send to-day for our Illustrated Catalogue for 1902.
