Economy.
No one doubtB the fact tbat the
best paint made Is the most eco
nomical one to use. No one would
attempt to economize by applying
a cheap paiut if he positively knew
that it lacked In wearing qualities.
But many are deceived by tbe false
claims made by manufacturers of
unworthy goeds who can well af
ford to sell theit products at seem
ingly low prices.
