Lumber: Niobrara Lumber Company
The Lusk Standard, February 28, 1919
The Niobrara Lumber Co. is now open for business and is already delivering lumber to different jobs around town.
Their building operations are about completed, having only one or two sheds to erect. The office building is a conveniently arranged structure 20x50 feet and the warehouse is 20x100, two-story, which will enable them to store a vast amount of material. A big double deck lumber shed 20x200 feet has just been completed and is being filled with lumber.
Twenty cars of lumber have been received and they are expecting 30 cars more next week. It took a $3000 check to pay a freight bill for the new firm a few mornings ago.
The new firm is composed of local people. the president is Mr. R.C. Ord, who is an old-timer here and highly respected in the business circles of our city. Mr. F.W. Chambers is vice-president and will also act as general manager. Mr. Chambers spent many years with the J.L. Hall Lumber company and is an efficient and courteous gentleman and will add greatly to the success of the new firm. Mr. M.A. Hull will come from Bayard, Neb., and will hold the position of secretary and treasurer. He has been engaged in the lumber business for many years and will be a welcome addition to the business circles of Lusk. Mr. R. J. Rymill, who has recently severed his connections with the Lusk Lumber company will be the assistant manager.Bob needs no introduction to the people of Lusk as he is well known around town and his many friends are glad to see him associated with the new firm.
They will handle everything in the building line, including lime and cement and invite their many friends to call and look their place over.
