The putting upon the mar
ket of an article superior to
anything in the same line ever
sold here means something to
the busy business man. When
we went into the ready mixed
paint line we didjlso with the
idea of giving the public a bet
ter article than it has been
used to seeing. What is the
result? Hendry's Ready
Mixed Paints are leading all
others; people who have been
averse to using prepared
paints are now ready and wil
ling to save fifty percent of the
cost of painting their houses
by using this paint. Then you
ask "How can they save so
much?" We'll tell you! Not
the least important item in the
profession of the painter is his
knowledge of mixing colors,
and there's a good many of
them in Honolulu who can put
the paint on as even as the
boards but who do not know
the first principle of mixing.
Very well then. A ten year
old boy can paint if the colors
are right. You can save the
wages of a high priced man
and employ one who never
tried to learn the knack of
mixing and you save twenty
five percent in wages. The
"Hendry Ready Mixed" will
cover twenty-five percent more
space than ordinary paints or
the average ready mixed arti
cle there's your other twenty
five percent. If you do your
own work you will save twenty
five percent more. Try it.
Tiie assurances we have re
ceived from the Water Works
department leads us to believe
that there will be sufficient
water from the Makiki wells
for people to take baths every
day. With a liberal supply of
water comes a demand for
bath tubs better than tin.
We have in stock several of
the sort largely adveitised in
the Century and other maga
zines. They are enamelled
on iron and are everlasting.
All the new homes have them
and there's no reason why
they should not be put in old
People who occasionally en

have simply fallen into line

required, there will be others
