This was before porcelain bath tubs, telephones, electric lights, auto mobiles and well-built homes were found on farms. In passing, it mijcht also be added that it was about this time that parents were finding difficulty in keeping their boys and girls on the farms Today nothing is denied the farmer that is enjoyed by his' city brother. This is particularly true of the home. Ticture the home shown above on YOUR farm. It can be built there. Many farmers who have the refinement and good taste to desire to improve their home conditions are putting off building until prices become lower. Do you know when lower prices will be brought about? Or that they ever will? Every farmer expects to pay higher wages during this har vest than last. And present indications point to still higher wages for 1921. There is really very little hope of bringing down the present scale of wages. The aim is now to prevent it from going higher. To a great degree, labor influences the prices of all commodi ties. When labor is high, materials are high. If labor goes higher, materials will again advance. And everthing tends to show that prices have not yet' reached their peak. Last year you could have built for less than ycu can this year. This year it will cost you less than next This is the reason we are preaching the doctrin of BUILD NOW! This is true not only of your farm home, but of jour outbuildings as well. Don't go on denying yourself the comforts and pleasure that a modern home will afford you on the farm, while you wait for prices to go down. BUILD NOW, it's cheaper! We are" prepared to offer every building assistance to the farmer who has foresight enough to BUILD NOW. We have photographs of houses we have actually built for him to choose from.
