Therefore, it’s time to BUILD NOW-and, of course, you’ll BUILD OF WOOD. You’ve never had such an opportunity as you have now to buy Lumber at “rock bottom” prices-you may never again have the chance to make your crops buy TWICE as much lumber as they did before. ||§ I he same amount of gram that built a modest cottage m 1914 || || will buy a cozy bungalow this year. The same number of hogs ^ || that built a small, inadequate barn in 1914 will give you a really |§ || practical building now. The same number of cattle you sold in S§ ,11 1914 to buy that implement shed will now bring you an imple || ment shed, a poultry house, and a garage! Why? || Because lumber has not advanced in price in anywhere near f| || the same proportion as other commodities-other than wood build- p ; If ing materials included: ft§ || Get “over the top” with your buildings when everything is in li 1Jf your favor.
