ber of spectators, and the ordeal satisfactorily

A small house made of dry pino covcrod iWith
a thin coat of palut, was placed under ai pile
of shavings upon which six gallons of kero
sene oil was pouml and ignited. The flame
leaped high Into the air and burned! furiously
for forty minutes. Finally tho house was
raked from the debris and drenched ! with
kerosene oil. which burned off clean; leaving
the wood unscorched, as any one may see who
has the curiosity to call at the Walthall hotel.
where It Is on exhibition to-day. Ths object
of the test, which on account of j the caution
of the authorities was not as severe a usual,
was not to prove the impossibility of destroy
ing the box by lire, but to show that the paint
Is an effective protection against the ordinary
accidents which causes lire. This was mailo
so plain to our mind that it has Ixentdetcr
mined to treat the roof of thoLxiEX-ArrE,vxs
building to a coat of It as soon as tho hotwe la
remodeled.. Another, and In our opinion,
more valuable Quality of the paiat is its lm-
pervloupness to water, making It a suro remc
dy for leaks In did shingled aud tinned roofs.
As a test of this, two paper boxes weropalted
on the inside and kerOtcne oil poured Into one
and water into the other without the slightest
effect upon the paper, j Tho bores with their
contents can also be seen at the Walthall hotl
to-tlav. Persons who may have icacy roor,
or who may wish to guard against lire should
give Mr. Mott a call and learn from him about
the matter. We have no hesitation In saylDg
that he lias a good article whlf Ifls worthy!; of
the attention of property owriera, , i
