Qig Stock of Dry Wood. -An
enterprise that fills a long-felt
want is the big wood yard of the
Grants Pass Fuel Compauy, located
near Frout and Fourth streets, This
is purely a homo enterprise and is
deserving of extensive home patronage.
O. O. Load, the enterprising mana
ger of the gasoline woodsaw, aud the
owner of a splendid fruit farm oat
on Iowa street, is manager of this
wood yard in partnership with V.
J. Gordon, recently from Oregou
City. Mr. Loud is an experienced
man at the wood and timber business,
and has supplied the yard with wood
to meet every demand. Wood of
every kind, and of auy length can be
had iu small or largo quantities at
the yard, and will be delivered
jirouiplly on order. Being under
sheds, it is -well seasoned and dry,
and kept in that condition through all
season. Much trouble has becu ex
perienced in past years in getting dry
wood in Grants Pass during the win
ter, or iu getting wood of a sine aud
length to fit a particular range or
stove. This trouble is uow emiroly
obviated, and if you want 10-iiioh or
four-foot wood, hard or soft, split or
iu chunks, you can Hud just what yon
want at thn yards of tho Grants Pass
This enterprise was started at the
earnest request of citizens, and to
meet tho demand of a growing city.
It is not only a great convenience,
hut will be a means of saving money
to all wood consumers. The company
also oirorates a woodsaw, aud will
saw cord wood or poles into stove
lengths. A grent saving can be
realized over tho old methods of buy
ing wood by the tier, by purchasing
it in cord wood lengths, at cord rates,
and having it sawd into stove
lengths. Putroui.a a home enterprise
