BUILDERS AND LUMBER DEALERS
Bussard & Amiss built a dry kiln near the depot this spring, and opened a lumber yard which they already have well stocked with all kinds of lumber, lath and shingles including pine from the lumber regions of Michigan. They are the only dealers in town who keep shingles from our native timbers. They take contracts for buildings of all kinds, on the most reasonable terms.
