So he sent away for it, but “The Blow Almost Killed Father,” when a few days later he found he could have bought the identical door from us and saved $2.00 on the deal. The catalog price was a little lower than ours, but father forgot to add freight, express and money or der charges, which made his door cost him more in the end than if he had bought at home. And he had to put up his money in advance, and wait almost a month for his door, at that. Fix this fact in your mind —we offer you better grades and prices in Lumber and Building Material than any mail order house can offer you, and you’re not buying “a cat in a bag,” but see the goods before you pay. And that’s worth considering. HE DLES LUMBER CO. Edgerton, Wisconsin.
