In a recent issue of tT/>e Progressive
Farmer we find where a farmer writes
something liKe this:
''In thc your 1010 I bulli II now house
on my 40 ncivs of land. I did not build
the vornados or PAINT tho house be
cause ol' the pri?es of paint mid lumber,
thinking it would be better lo wail
until prices caine down, I beti do the
work. Hut now my WINDOW'S and
DOOKS are nearly ruined by tim
weather, and the house is badly dam
aged; so it would have PAID nu' to
have built the vornndes and PAINTED
the house in spite of high prices."
FRIEND, you will make thc same MISTAKE if you
have property that needs Painting and don't Paint it.
We carry good assortments of Sherwin-Williams
Paints and Pcaslee-Gaulberts. There's none better than
the lines wc carry.
You can paint your houses, barns, etc., now and pay
