THE BUILDING MATERIAL DEALER THEIR CONTRIBUTION THE engines of war are silenced; the smoke of battle has cleared away. The period of reconstruction is here. To those who fought, suffered, and won, all glory is due-now and always. But let us not forget others who have done their share quietly, patiently, and unselfishly. The walls of civilization were shattered, and through the breach came a devastating torrent of frightfulness. To stem this flood, into the gap the nation unselfishly threw its all. The desired result was achieved; the fabric of civilization was again made whole. And all who helped gained sufficient reward in the knowledge of a great work well done. All credit to whom credit is due. No one class sufred more acutely, i: -rr LEHIGH Allentown, Pa. New York, N. Y. Boston, Mass. Philadelphia, Pa. Jacksonville, Fla. Offices Chicago, Ill.
