Ferguson Motor Co. 1 -jr?JMttijl -""'i!! i limi nullum W- O O at caft Thousands of American families are today realizing their hopes for better homes. There is nothing like lumber for solid comfort in house building. It is durable, easy to handle and inexpensive. When the Union Pacific was under construction seventy years ago, lumber was scarce in mid continental America. Methods of logging were tedious and wasteful. Transportation was difficult. Today, modern methods of logging and lumber manufacture, coupled with fast, dependable railroad transportation, make the choicest lumber available in all markets of America at amazingly low prices. In a frame house of aver age size the cost of the lumber is only about 15 of the total construction expense and this includes freight charges to average destinations. Union Pacific has played a leading part in development of the lumber industry. Steadily through the years, it has bettered its schedules, improvedits equipment, to facilitate fast, low cost, dependable delivery of this important commodity. It has recently added 4,500 specially designed cars to its lumber fleet. Progressive steps in pace with a progressive industry. For better homes at minimum cost -consult your local lumber dealer.
