The wind wasTutter and piercing and penetrat ed even the thickest garments. Hat chasirig was the principal outdoor sport; one or two women taking part. The wind let up Sunday, but It snow ed just enough to cover the slip pery places, making walking danger ous. At Detroit Convention. Mr. Henry T.

WOOD "The Local Undertaker" DANIELSON. CONN. Parlors 8 Meehanio Street Conservation stands sentinel over the natural resources of our country, and forbids . wanton destruction of forests, mines and animal life. Conservation multiplies the by-products of industry, and changes waste into profit. It is conservation that turns rags into miladi's dainty note paper. - . It is conservation that gathers together worn out garments, discarded sheets, carpets, and similar objects which have served their useful purposes. In the General's big roofing mills, these are mascerated, saturated, sterilized and beaten into pulp, which finally comes out of the rollers in one continuous sheet of clean, strong roofing felt. . It is then thoroughly saturated with the General's own blend of soft asphalts and coated with a blend of harder asphalts, which keeps the inner saturation soft and prevents the drying-out process so destructive to the ordinary roofing. This explains why Certain-teed Roofing out-lasts other roofing; also why the General can safely guarantee h for 5, 10 or 15 years, according to p!y. Experience has proved that CERTAIN-TEED will out last the period of guarantee. The General makes one third of all the rolls of roofing made in America. Because of this enormous production, and the economies due to cheap power, modern machinery and favorably located mills, the General is able to make the best roofing at the lowest cost. CERTAIN-TEED is made in rolls; also in slate-surfaced shingles. There is a type of CERTAIN TEED for every kind of building, with fiat or pitched roofs, from the largest sky-scraper to the smallest residence or out-building. CERTAIN-TEED is sold by re sponsible dealers all over the world, at reasonable prices. Investigate it before you decide on any type of roof.
