Dear Sir: As your business kto
get people into and out of trouble,
: suppose you consider their paint;
it makea 'em almost as much trou
: ble as money, except of course
They buy poor paint a good deal;
they don't mean to; tbey don't
know eny better; tbey buy without
thinking. Bad paint isn't good. It
looks good-enough for a year-, then
begins to get rusty; but changes so
slowly, one don't notice it.
Looking isn't all. The business
of paint k to keep a house dry in
side, the wood and iron of it; keen
i it from rotting and rusting. Tskes
t good paint to do it.
Good and bad paint are sold at
one price or about that. One can't
| go by the price at all; as with law
| yets, the price has nothing to do
with goodness or badness, and coats
are worse yet; the painter and sher
iff come-in for iheir share,
i ' But the probability k that a man,
! who painta Devoe, will come-out
1 Yours truly,
F. W. DRVOK & Co.
