WHEN SELECTING PAINT do not be influenced by the artistic design of the label, the shape of the can, or the
"few cents cheaper." THESE all have the places but you are buying the PAINT. You'll throw the can away and regret the

then you ought to have a firstclass painter. For ordinary jobs you will find full and complete instructions for using on
each and every can, or if you will tell us what you want to paint we will show you what to use. Paint is not used merely to make
things look better, but to make everything cleaner, more sanitary and as a protection. The bark protects the tree, the clothing pro
tects the body, birds are protected by their feathers, animals are protected with a heavy coat of hair, in fact, nature provides protec
tion in many ways so why shouldn't you protect that which is yours from the weather or kicks and knocks of everyday use with
