Children Cry FOR FLETCHER'S CASTORI A Children Cry FOR FLETCHER'S O A3 T O R I A Children Cry FOR FLETCHER'S C A S T o re I A Why should you use PEERLESS PREPARED ROOFING? Why do you pick up money when you see it lying on the street? Simply because you don't believe in wasting cash, and right there is the fundamental reason why you should use PEERLESS PRE PARED ROOFING. It doesn't cost money. It saves it. Here are the comparative costs per square for tin, shingles, tarred felt and PEER LESS ROOFING. PEERLESS ROOF. 120 ft. of sheeting .$2.40 1 Roll 3 Ply (not 1 or 2 ply) 2.00 Nails and cement free . 00 Laying .50 Total .. .$4.90 If put on right, guaranteed for from 20 to 25 years. TARRED FELT ROOF. 120 ft. of sheeting $2.40 5 layers of felt, pitch, gravel and labor 5.50 Total $7.90 After the roof is laid is the time when it begins to yield big dividends. Your PEERLESS ROOF is there to stay. The kind of wind that sends your neighbor's shingles whirling into the next county will pass your PEERLESS roof harmlessly. Shingles have not declined in the last few weeks. Our price for the best 5-2 clear red cedar in 10 m. lots or more has been $3.25 all summer. Not $3.30. The ad vantage in a good prepared roofing is the fact that you can use it where shingles are not permitted, (in the fire limits in cities) or on roofs that are so flat that shingles cannot be used. PEERLESS ROOFING is guaranteed for from 20 to 25 years. Shingles are not guaranteed at all. The Governor's Mansion was built by Henry Bennett for E. Bennett in 1887 and was built as good as money and the best skill could made it and it has been roofed twice with the best shingles on the market, the second roof being put on near the close of the 19th century. Another advantage PEERLESS ROOFING has, is its fire resisting qualities. Not fire proof. It is approved by underwriting boards and insurance companies everywhere. A live coal or spark from an engine or burning buildings, has no effect on PEERLESS ROOFING. You know what they do to shingles. Prepared roofing is the MODERN roof covering. It has all the advantages and none of the drawbacks of old style roofs. It offers a truly economical method of doing away with annoyance and expense in repairing old roofs and the best prepared roofings on the market are to be had at less than the price of ordinary wooden shingles. But the enormous demand existing today for prepared roofing has drawn on the market a number of "pirate" brands made of faulty materials and offering price as their only recommendation. So when you buy prepared roofing as a protection to your prop erty and your pocketbook, look for the brand the trademark the manufacturer's sign that he is willing to stand back of what he knows about his product.
