A Fire-Proof Cement
Alfibastinc is not only the best inside coating in the world for
churches, opera houses, club houses, office buildings and dwellings, but
is used everywhere for factories, cotton mills, army posts, plantation
buildings, hospitals, sylums, etc., laigcly on account of its fire-proof pro
perties. Alabastine is perfectly flrtDroof in its nature, is a cement that
can be mixed thick and used in filling cracks, and scU very hard over
night. Is cheaper than and superior to paint.
Sanitarians say that the closely packed school room with the large
surface of wall exposure demands careful attention; otherwise is a breed
ing ground for disease germs and a fruitful source of disease. They
recommend Alabastine only. Write for particulars.
Here life is spent. The little ones nrc born and reared, and arc en
titled to all the safeguards that the intelligent housewife can surround
Alabastine is not expensive, promotes health, renders home beauti
ful and is durable. Alabastine is not a kalsominc.
Examine package and refuse if not labeled Alabastine.
DON'T forget that Alabastine being durable is worth many times its
price as compared With other wall-coating materials, which arc dear at
any price, and remember there is Only One ALA3ASIINE.
ALABASTINE is a powder put up in 5-pound pack?.;;?!. Wc carry
it in stock in White and in a large number of beautiful tints. Anyone
can mix it with water and apply it, no skill required.
It can be used with splendid results right over old wall paper and
'.he beautiful finish will surprise you.
let us send you a color card of ALABASTINE.
