“Advert: Do You Tango? If so, it is very probable that one of these days you will have need of my assisstance.

“When one engages in violent exercise there is a natural tendency for jewellery to be shaken out of place, dropped on the floor, and damaged.

Whenever you have a piece of jewellery that needs repair, bring it to me, and let me exercise my skill upon it.

“I have had a long practical experience and am able to undertake the most delicate repairs promptly and satisfactorily. For jewellery that is damaged beyond repair, I allow the utmost price towards the purchase of new.

“By the way did you see my Xmas Show of Jewellery? I sold so much that I had to send off rush orders to the makers for fresh supplies. These have now arrived and I pride myself that my stock of jewellery and fancy goods in general is second to none in Horsham.

“Come and see it it. J. Wakefield - The Jeweller with the Fine Assortment, 12a West Street, Horsham.”

This is the latest in our daily news reports from the County Times of 1914 as we build up to commemorate the start of the first world war.
