These walls should be Alabastined in the latest,
up-to-the-minute nature color tints. Each room should
reflect your own individuality and the treatment
throughout be a complete perfect harmony in colors.
The walls of the old home, whether mansion or cottage, can be
made just as attractive, just as sanitary, through the intelligent use of
Instead of kalsomine or wallpaper
How much better, when you have a new home, to itari right than to have
to correct errors afterward from former treatment with other materials, when
you come to the use of Alabastine, as docs nearly every one sooner or later.
Once your walls are Alabastined you can use any material over it
should you desire, but having used Alabastine you will have no desire for
any other treatment.
Alabastine is so easy to mis and apply so lasting in its results so
absolutely sanitary and so generally recognized as the proper decorative
material in a class by itself that it is becoming difficult to manufacture fast
enough to supply the demand.
Alabastine is a dry powder, put up in five-pound packages, white and
beautiful tints, ready to mix and use by the
addition of cold water, and with full directions
on each package. Every package of genuini
Alabaitint has cross and circle printed in red.
Better writs tu tor hand-made color designs and
special tuggesUons. Give us your decorative problem!
and let us help you work them out.

Wonderful Story of "Waterless Sea"
Would Have Done Credit to
Prester John as a title was Ilka
the Egyptian Pharaoh and belonged to
whole lines of king who reigned In
the East and In Ethiopia in particular.
One writer of long ago sets Abyssinia
ns tho kingdom of Prester John. Abys
sinia used to be called "Middle India."
It Is related that before tho year
1241 a letter was addressed by Prester
John to Manuel Commenus, emperor
of Constantinople, saying that In Pres
ter John's country there Is n "water
less sea," which none have ever
crossed. It consists of tumbling bil
lows of sand, never at rest, und con
tains fish of most excellent flavor.
Three days Journey from the coast
of the sand sen Is a mountain whence
rolls down n "waterless river," con
sisting of small stones, which crumble
Into sand when they reach the sen.
Whoever Prester John may have
been, if he Invented that story, ha
certainly possessed a vivid imaglna
tlon and considerable originality.
