REGISTRATION CALL FOR
WOMEN TO AID IN WAR.
AT BRIDE'S PRETTY HOME
A Sermon On Lumber
Inconclusion my friends, we cari't get away from
this lumber question. Why, every one of us
spent our first days in a cradle made of lumber.
Our lives have been lived between walls of two
by fours and lath, with rafters over our heads,
and matched flooring beneath our feet. We have
been sitting in wooden chairs, eating from wooden
tables, riding in wooden wagons, and in the course
of time will be laid to rest in wooden caskets.
