THE DUDLEY LUMBER COMPANY.

YARDS OF THE DUDLEY LUMBER COMPANY.
YARDS OF THE DUDLEY LUMBER COMPANY.

The yards of the Dudley Lumber Company were established in Concordia by a Mr. Greene, who was succeeded by H.C. Dudley, and subsequently incorporated under its present title. Owing to failing health Mr. Dudley returned to his eastern home in the state of Maine and was succeeded by C.W. Browning, who in turn yielded the place to its present manager, S.C. Ainsworth, in July, 1902. The company represent a paid-up capital of fifteen thousand dollars and carry a complete line of building lumber, cement and coal. Mr. Ainsworth was reared among the lakes of Wisconsin, where he was in expert yatchsman. He has followed the lumber business from the tree on down the line until he can manufacture any article in woodwork. Mr. Ainsworth settled in eastern Kansas in 1871, but later removed to Missouri. His return to Kansas verifies the statement that all who leave, "no matter where they roam," will return.
