      Mr. L. J. Cale, of Minnesota Lake, has purchased lots on the corner of Seventh and Front streets, on which he will erect a two-story brick structure twenty-five feet in width by eighty feet in length, to be used as a general store. The work of building, it is expected, will begin in a few days. The estimated cost is $6,000. It will be finished in a first-class manner, and will be an ornament as well as a commendable addition to the town. (Brainerd Tribune, 21 May 1881, p. 1, c. 7)

      Among the more important buildings going up in Brainerd at the present time is the new flouring mill, the opera house, Witt & Leland's brick hotel [Villard], L. J. Cale's three-story store on Front street, the new Catholic church and the N. P. Hospital. The actual valuation of the above six structures amounts to $200,000. Not bad. (Brainerd Dispatch, Thursday, 20 September 1883, p. 3, c. 3)

      L. J. Cale will begin the erection of a new brick building on 7th street just south and adjoining the structure built last year, just as soon as the weather will permit. The new portion will be of the same dimensions as the block built last year, and will be finished in the same manner. (Brainerd Dispatch, 08 March 1901, p. 8, c. 1)

      L. J. Cale has removed the barn and wooden structures beside his grocery department on 7th street to make room for the new store building, which he will begin to construct at once. (Brainerd Dispatch, 12 April 1901, p. 8, c. 1)

      The basement for the new Cale block on 7th street is about completed. The building must be ready for occupancy July 1st. (Brainerd Dispatch, 03 May 1901, p. 10, c. 3)
