W. R. Linville Will Build

From the September 15, 1899 Skidmore Standard, page 1:

Yesterday, W. R. Linville decided to build a business brick facing Walnut street between his building now occupied by Sewell Bros & Montgomery and the Finney building occupied by Lee Chadduck as a drug store.  The new building will be 33 feet wide by 70 feet in length and one story high.  When it is completed, J. F. Kellogg will occupy it, and also the room now occupied by Sewell Bros. & Montgomery, with his stock of general merchandise.  Sewell Bros. & Montgomery will move their stock of goods into W. J. Skidmore’s new brick now in course of construction.  These two new brick buildings will add materially to the appearance of the business section of Skidmore.
