more-than-double the satisfaction that
people have found in other paint: and
the dealer that secures our agency Is
going to increase bis business by get
ting more jobs.
It has never failed to do it. W. lb
Arnold & Co., Waterville, Maine,
bought *r<?? of Devoe lead and zinc in

Brothers ofLowville, N. Y. bought $20
