money to wait than to paint; it costs
about 10 per cent to wait, and not
over 5 for the extra price.
What is 5? About 82.50 on the

gallons Devoe, 15 of average paint,

Suppose there's plenty of oil next
year, won't paint go down? Yes, a
little; there can't be plenty of oil;
the demand settles that. Half the
