Men feel different about different things.
But no man can feel otherwise than per
fectly satisfied when he buys a bill of
lumber from us. He may know nothing
about the grade of lumber, but he does
know that he gets exactly what he buys,
and sees it before he buys and pays for
it big item, isn't it? Should a mistake
occur it is cheerfully corrected. Our
grades are right and our prices are right.
There is no bill too large for us to han
dle and none too small to receive our
most careful attention.
