The Unchangeable Law of Nature
Did it ever occur to you that nature is a splendid judge of what is needed in each particular locality? It is always a safe bet to follow nature s laws. This wise guardian has caused to be grown in each separate part of the country a special variety of timber suitable for the needs of that locality. Nature never makes a mistake. Why ship in unsuitable material for the construction of your buildings when nature m her wisdom has placed at your door the variety best suited to your needs? Think thi* over.
