yNY lumber yon pur
chased for building
purposes three years ao, at the
beginning of the European war. cost you more lhan
twice as much in farm products as the same ma
terial will cost you today. In other words, your
lumber purchasing power has doubled, and then
some, in three years!
That in because lumber has increased little in
price, while farm products have increased much.
This is the time, then, for you to build what
ever you may need in farm structures a new
home, a bnrn, a silo, a grain bin, sheds, cribs, hog
houses, etc.
We can help you plan your farm buildings or
your home. It will be a pleasure to serve you. We
can supply everything you will need from the foun
dation up in the right quality and at a reason
able price.
