The Cowley Progress

Our friends, K.E. Anderson and Son, owners of the Anderson Service Station, have branched out into the hardware business on a small scale at the beginning but anticipating adding to the stock as necessity demands, having purchased the hardware stock of the Cowley Planing Mill, including the glass business. The line of goods purchased includes nails, bolts and screws of all sizes, screening and window glass, etc. To this the Andersons will add other lines of shelf hardware as they go along. In connection with this they will continue to operate their service station.
