Hooker & Co., Coop erstown, N. Y., have sold Devoe paint for 22 years. D. T. McGown. of that firm, built a house in 'BS and painted Devoe, of course. The paint lasted ten years. A year or two later, a neighbor built a house and painted it lead and oil. The neighbor's house was repainted twice in the same time. This looks as if the neighbor's house was painted three times in eight or nine years, and McGown's once in ten years. We are not quite sure—we tell the tale as it comes to us. It is enough to say that Devoe lead and zinc lasts twice as long as lead and oil. Yours truly. F. W. DEVOE & Co. P. S.—Patterson Bros, sell our paint in your section.
