House at Belmont, Mass. Stanley B. Parker, Architect, Boston "White Pine in Home Building" is beautifully illustrated with old Colonial and Modern homes, full of valuable information and sug gestions on home-building, and gives a short, concise statement of the merits of White Pine. Send for it now. There is no charge for it to prospective home-builders. N ATURE alone is responsible for the qualities that make White Pine such a good home-building wood. The smooth, even grain that makes White Pine easy to work and permits close-fitting joints its long life when exposed to the most rigorous climate-its freedom from warping, splitting and opening at thejoints-are due to the peculiar characteristics that Nature has given the wood. WHITE PINE We especially recommend White Pine for use on the outside of the house, for three centuries of home-building in this country have brought out the fact that no other wood so successfully withstands exposure to the weather. White Pine costs a little more than other building woods, but the prudent home-builder will find the slightly added cost a sound investment because of the added life White Pine will give to his house, and its elimination of repair charges. He will have the satisfaction also of having his house for many years to come as fine in appearance as the day it is completed. WHITE PINE BUREAU, 1006 Merchants Bank Building, St. Paul, Minn.
