Men feel differently about different
things. But no man can feel other
wise than perfectly 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 handle and none too small to
receive our most careful attention.
Our motto is, "A satisfied cus
tomer is the best advertisement,5.
