"LIMB WOOD TO BURN"
Please remember that we tell "wood to burn."
Most dealers have "wood to sell," but there is a dif
ference. Our wood is cut at the proper time, and is
carefully cured .thereby retaining every heat unit.
There is no waste in our wood; every stick is a heat
maker, and a cord of our wood will go as far as two
cords of wood that has been improperly cured.
Try our deal pf two cords 4-foot limb wood for
$14.00. It can be sawed into 16-inch lengths for
$1.25 per cord. Buy o.uick, as the deal will be off in
a few days.
Phone us your order for Body, Limb, Slab or Block
Wood, Coal, or Fuel Oil.
