Dear SU* : The way to buy palut is to
go by tho iisme. There is a name never
eseon on sham paint or weak paint or
short-measure paint : Devoe.
There are a hundred different names in
paint. Some are sham ; some weak ;
some short-measure ; and some all
?f there is another anoh paint as Devoe
lead-and-zlno, we don't know it. There
are a few fairly good palDts ; a few ; only
one Devoe. A. gallon of Devoe ia worth
a gallon-and-a-half of those few.
Mr. Aaron Higgine, of Plainfield, N.
J., always used 15 gallons of mixed paint
for his house Lut spring he bought 15
gallons of Dovne and had 4 gallons left.
