at tha Binnard Opsra Housa.
Young Mrs. Winthrop, a strong so
ciety drama, waa presented for the
first time In Lewiston at the Binnard

stock company. The story of the play
is a beautiful one and Is full of senti
ment and pathos, dealing with the so
cial whirl of a large city. The coa
tumes worn by the members of the
company were elaborate and Is practi
cal evidence that Mr. Del Lawrence,
manager of the company, is determined
to give the people of Lewiston the full
value for thetr money. The play was
by far the strongest yet placed on the

Prepared, or ready to use paint, has
slowly but steadily won ltè place and
become the generally used paint of to
day. Its status ln this locality Is well
proved by its wide use ln the last five
''Its success," said a prominent paint
dealer yesterday, "Is due mainly to two
causes. First to the Inherent difficul
ties and disadvantages In buying paint
materials and mixing them by hand;
and second, to the raising of the stand
ard of prepared paints by most man
"The crude old hand mixing of
paint," he continued," was bound soon
er or later to be displaced by modern
scientific processes—the wonder Is that
the old methods were persisted In so
long in view of the economy and better
results obtained by good prepared
"The man buying the raw materials
is not in position to test the various
ingredients to make spre that he is
securing the best quality. The large
manufacturer is forced to make car er
fui tests in order to protect^ himself
against being loaded up with Inferior
materials. Then the materials cannot
possibly be combined in so accurate
proportions, the pigment and oil so
thoroughly Incorporated, nor the colors
made so uniform and true when the
quantities aised are largely guessed at
and then mixed with a stick in a tub
or pall as when each ingredient is
weighed and measured, and mixed by
exact formulas and ground ln mills
specially built for the purpose. It Is
hand work against machinery; guess
ing compared with scientific exact
The dealer further stated that the
convenience of buying and using pre
pared paint appealed to every property
owner. All he had to do was to de
cide on the colors fie wanted and then
get the paints ready to go on his build
ing without the worry or expense of
buying the variou# Ingredients and the
risk of not getting the desired colors.
Asked regarding the position paint
ers took toward prepared paints, the
paint man said: "They take the same
stand I do, they çppnse 'cheap dope'
brands of ready-mixed paints and en
dorse good prepared paint. Several of
the boss painters ln this vicinity give
me strong support in pushing the paint
I sell. They find it easier to apply than
lead and oil. and that It helps them
do a better Job."
In reply to a query regarding the
outlook in the paint trade for this
«firing, he replied. "Never better. We
shall see more painting this spring
than in any previous year."
