Ghost Signs: Columbia Batteries- Day 2

For the second day of ghost signs, we're going to be visiting Good Hope, Illinois, population 415.

 This ghost sign is on the side of an agricultural building (one that has fertilizer and such, I think). It advertises Columbia Dry Batteries which "cost no more, last longer."

In the last picture (in which I've altered the colors) you can see the slogan very well. For more on Columbia Dry Cell batteries, check out this American Chemical Society page.
