NE great service that the war is already rendering the American people is that it is giving us a keener sense of values. We are learning that it isn't the cost of a com modity that counts half so much as its value its service per dollar. Lack of knowledge of the values of various woods-lack of knowledge in the proper use of woods-leads to a tremendous waste in home-building; and to many disappointments. Wood always has been, and still is, the most economical build ing-material in America. And a well-built wood house, in which woods have been selected with regard for their proper uses, makes as comfortable, durable, and weather-proof a home as can be built of any material. We do not recommend that you use WHITE PINE for every part of your house-other cheaper woods may answer some purposes as well. But for outside uses-where the wood is exposed to the weather-no other wood is so durable, or holds its place so well without warping, cracking, splitting or decaying, as WHITE PINE.
