Though our vote has no hearing or weight;
And the old man souk him an old, old Bong,?
Never sang voice so clear and strong
That It could drown the old man's long,
For he sung the song, "Too Into! too later7 ,|.' '"
"When we want, we have for our pains V;.

Till the want has burned out of our brains,

When we've matched our buttons the pattern is sold,
And every thing comes too late, - too late!

Let tor to Moseley & Roland,
Dear Sirs: Von ask how many square
feet a gallon will cover. Depends on
condition of building.
There is a great deal of lying on this
point. Tho stock claim of lying paints
is 300 square feet, two coats. It's a lie,
as a rule.
Devoo covers '300 to 500, our agents
think. We think 300 too low and 500
too high; though doubtless, they both
How much the other paints cover is
equally doubtful: we guess 100 to 500.
The truth is found in another compar
ison. Devoo is all paint, truo paint,
strong paint and full-measure; tho
others in general are, at the best, de
luted, adulterated and short-measure.
They cover according to body and
measure. You can't paint with clay,
lime ckalk sand barytcs water or air?
no body in them. Co by Devoe.
