THE KEYSER BOTTLING WORKS
J R BEAN, MANAGER, ARMSTRONG STREET

  At 60 cents a case of two dozen bottles, delivered anywhere in the town limits, the products of these works are within the reach of everyone.

  This is the third season for the works which are fully equipped to turn out one hundred cases daily. Shipments are made to all surrounding points.
