J.L. AMISS & N.B. NABER, under the firm name of Amiss & Naber, successors to Bussard & Amiss commenced operations last September as LUMBER DEALERS. Their lumber yard is situated between the railroads and south of Main street. They buy and sell all kinds of native and pine lumber, but their business is mainly confined to lumber, lath, and shingles adapted to building purposes. Although their business is in its infancy, they have handled about $10,000 worth of lumber in the last six months, they have been in the trade and will no doubt do a much larger business the coming season.
