euding Dec. 31, 1903 was 35,

of iron ore mined in 1902 in tbe
British Empire, Germany and
Luxuinburg, which arc the near

I'll is is called the iron age be-
c nine iron enters more largely

single material. Aud as the
United Sliites leads all other
nations u"t only iu diggiug iron
ore but in converting it into pig
iron,fteel and machinery, the
boast is not an idle one that w
stand at itii- head of the iron age.

Notice to Builders

I winh to inform the building public
that I have opened a atone quarry on
the Cam i .bell place about two miles
from town and am In a position to
take all kinds of atone contracts at a
great ravin? to the builder. There are
vevernl reaannB why 1 can f aralah this
stone at a oheaper rate than hard atont
dealers. The principal ,reas n is that
th" stone is tofter and can be out and
dre-8fid ut less expense : than, tbe
hard stono now being furnished tbe
trade. . The quarry is nearer town aud
a good hard r. a.l. This , stone is
not only rin-t elasB (oundation rock but
can also be cut at u very . slight cost
for wull,H and fancy trimmings. If you
are thinking ol building let me know
and I will convince you that yon can
bnild a stone -fmlldini? with thla stnue
chenper than with any other material
now in use here. Jcaiy a full and
complete lino of sewer pipe at h11 times.
