Human procrastination is ever rife and when carried too far. quick delivery of building material is important • r j • l a ' * v It is not too late even now to begin building do tails, provided you may be assured of delivery of brick, etc., at the required time. I sell Face Brick of a variety of colors. They are the artistic kind that reflect one’s good- judg ment. There are quiet tones and tones not so quiet Some of them might be regarded by the demure as just a little noisy—a little too obtrusive. Still, I can suit the most fastidious. The delivery? That is never promised until the certainty follows. As soon as a car arrives its con tents are delivered to the building site by automo bile trucks. That is a good sight quicker than by horse and wagon transmission. I carry a large yard and warehouse stock right here also. If you contemplate building, don’t de lay longer.
