S. DAKE. Lumber, Sash, Doors, Blinds, Building Material

    At the old and reliable establishment of S. Dake, contractors and property owners in this and the surrounding section may secure, from the large stocks carried, their needs in the building line. From the “foundation upwards” every article that enters into building construction can be secured at prices the lowest to be had anywhere. Orders for lumber in any quantity and size are promptly executed, and sash, doors, blinds and turned work are furnished as desired. This concern supplies constantly all kinds of building materials such as lime, cement, hair, paints, pumps, rock, etc. This establishment has been identified with local mercantile interests for the last twenty five years, during which time it has built up a reputation and a large patronage as the result, of thoroughly honest methods and upright dealings. The business is thoroughly representative in its line, and is in a position to offer facilities and advantages unexcelled.  Mr. S. Dake is among Illiopolis honored and esteemed citizens and business men. The business is under the management of his son, Mr. 0. H. Dake, who is thoroughly conversant with the lumber interests, and who spares neither time nor money to satisfy by prompt service and honest values all current demands
