E.. it found restrictions a plenty heaped on the building industry to which it sold material such as lumber, hardware, building materials, paints, oils, and coal. * * :S There were certain materials, and certain amounts of these materials, which could be sold, but the problem for the lumber, company was to persuade builders and farmers especially that anything worth-while could be constructed from such a small rationing of critical materials. * * * This is vhere Paul Grange, manager of the Northern Lumber company, breathed a gap and has kept his firm busy and helpful to an all important agricultural area in time of war. He figured that if farmers could not, or did not have the time to figure out what could be done with substitute materials, he would not only show them--but he would build such articles for them. * * * The success of his ready-made products for the farm has been nothing short of phenomenal and he has found that the demand is greater than even his rationed supply of material and help can keep up with. . * * * Brooder houses, hog feeders, hayracks, wagon boxes, self feeders for cattle, chicken houses, hog houses, poultry houses, hog troughs, chicken feeders, hideaway nests, field gates, and many more of the things farmers need in the ready built line on today's farms are now constructed in the shops of the Northern Lumber company. * * * One of these shops is under the supervision of R. E. Blake, skilled in all kinds of cabinet work and the type of workman who can build almost anything to specification. His work is aided by precision tools which have been installed in this complete woodworking shop. * * * The other shop used for rough construction is operated by Await Jahnke and Vic Mullaney, who build the brooder houses, hog houses, and other heavier items of farm construction. * * * Aside from these ready built farm items for sale at the Northern Lumber company, the firm also carries a fairly complete line of building materials now available under wartime regulations.
