the comer store while the remain
ing store-room has been leased by
a Portland party who asserts that
he will add another barbershop to
the two already here.
The St. Johns Grocery Company
has a lease upon its present store

would be made even if the building

Occupants of a brick building
possess a feeling of safety which is
worth much. The Holbrook brick
is a safe building and there is a
great advantage in feeling that
one's possessions are not in a fire
trap which could be destroyed in
the twinkling of an eye by a
dropjed match or u discarded cigar.
