Hear Sir: Let's have a little private
talk by ourselves on business; nobody

You want to know how to do a cheap
job of painting, and have it look good
Hero it Is: The cheapest thing there is
in the way of a good-looking Job?say
nothing about its being good?Is De
voo : the regular thing In Devoe.
Tho reason is: Devoe goes further
than anything else. Lead-and-oil is
good-looking: don't go so far and costs
more. The other paints are moro or
less shjjrt in one*way or another; don'c
go so far and costs more than Devo*.
Dovoo costs least of all; you don't
mind Its lasting longer', do you? We
can't help it: a paint that goes, further
lasts 'onger; we can't holp it.

For instance, a sack of "Clifton" flour
may cost you a little more than other
so-called patent Hours, but It will lie
cheaper to you in the end. Whj? Be
