WHAT ARE YOU GOING
TO DO ABOUT IT?
You know there's quite a lot of "fixing up"
to do about the place. You've known it for some
time, and still you keep putting it off. What are
you going to do about it now? Put it off again?
you take our advice, you'll buy what lumber
you need at once. The price of lumber and build
ing material is as low now as it is likely to be,
and the longer you put off repairs the more they'll
cost to make. We will make you very close
prices on anything you want just now and you
can haul it in slack time*
