Exhibited by Mission Candle Works, Messrs. Winter, Maurer & Co., Proprietors. These Figures are run in plaster Paris molds and polished same as candles, and being impervious, will last for all time. These are the first ever made on the Pacific Coast, and we have no hesitation in saying they are equal if not superior to marble. [P. 115.]
