Voeo All Haua Ueitofll Yes 3'ou have all waited for the decline of the price cf lumber and it has come, and you are needing the buildings which you had thought to have had built. During the time the prices of your products have also advanced in price. This we are pleased to know. The prices of lumber and building material has suffered as much a decline as any could reasonably ex pect. Really the tendency with the increased building which is sure to come, might strengthen the market some. The young pigs will be safer with a good, dry warm place. The chickens will lay better with a sunny warm house. And how about your home? Is it as comfortable as the family need? The world is going forward; let's us get busy.
