INDICATES MUCH BUILDING
Itreckr-n ridge Ivik litteeii lumber
yards ail carrying good stocks and
all very well supplied with the ordin-
ary lengths and dimensions required
In general building. This was the
rase until right recently and the fact
that their stocks are now so depleted
us to necessitate tplucjng of at least
one big order In Hanger is the strong-
est evidence of the demand for build-
ing materials und of the much build-
ing now going on. Many new houses
have been started within the past

at the yards are considerably broken.
With the freer receipts now begin-
i.lng to lie enjoyed via railroads It Is
exjiectetl that the demand can be fair-
ly well met. The yards are crowding
their truekw and teams hauling in M.d
to very best ability they uro trying
to keep the building bbom going.
