HURRAH FOR MIKE MCNAMARA.
Washington, June 20.—There’s a lit
tie sj>ot in Ireland that Michael Mi -
Namara had in his ‘'moind’s eye" for
a long time—thirty years, in fact. All
that time Michael was obeying orders,
drilling, campaigning, and doing the
hundred-and-one things that fall to the
lot of the American marine.
Michael finished his time, retiring
with the rank of "Sarjint major, no
less.” and went back to that little
spot in County Mayo.

To Our Friends And
In order that you may know the reasons why lumber
is costing more today than it did one year ago, we offer
for your consideration the following facts:
hverything which goes into the manufacture of luni
i» r has doubled and trebled in value, machinery, saws,
tool-, chains, and everything made of iron or steel are
S costing more than was ever known before. Feed for
teams is at price- nearly prohibitive. Harness, belting
an*l everything else made of leather is likewise and the
sawmill- are paying higher wages. The demand for lum
ln-r ha s rown by leaps mid hounds. For some time buy
er- from the northern and eastern states remained out
of tin- market, thinking it would weaken, hut on the
contrary, it -teadily advanced and when actual condi
tions U-eanie known they bought in large quantities and
l*aid fancy prices for quick shipments.
rhe I nit-d States and Allied (Joveraments are using
millions *-f feet for war purposes. Work has begun on
one thousand merchant vessels to he built entirely out of
The above are some of the reasons why lumber costs I
more than it -lid one year ago, but have you stopped to §
think that a l-udiel of wheat, oats or corn will buy more [
hinder and building material than it would last year. |f
We do not look for a decline in prices any time soon. |
If you expect to build, do it NOW while our stocks are
i in shape to supply your requirements.
Yours very truly,
