THE cost of labor and brushes for a job
where poor paint is used is exactly the
same as for the best. There isn't much diff
erence in the cost of the paint itself, and as the
good paint will last twice as long and afford a
much greater protection, it is the poorest kind
of economy to buy anything but the best.
IT is just as easy to adulterate paint as it is milk or the thousand
1 and one other articles stopped by the pure food laws, and when so
many paints are sold for profit alone rather than with the idea of giv
ing service you should get all the information possible before buying.
W E have made a careful study of the paint question in buying the
lines we handle, and we are ready and willing to show you their
We carry a full line of the best paints, varnishes and architectural fin
ishes on the market—The Masury line.
