It's like buying a pig in a poke to
pay for lumber you haven't seen.
We can sell you lumber as low as
you can buy it at long distance.
And you have the advantage of
seeing it before you pay for it. We
handle and strongly recommend for
all exposed surfaces
the genuine old-fashioned struc
tural wood that has stood the test of time
wherever used. It does aot sag, twist,
warp, shrink, swell or rot, even after cen
turies of exposure, to the full brunt of the
weather. It takes paint perfectly too.
You'll like to work with White Pine.
The soft, yielding grain saves time
and effort and doesn't dull your tools.
You can buy cheaper woods but none of
equal economy, length of service con
sidered. See us on lumber. If we haven't what
f u want, we can soon get it.
