Dear Sirs: Do you want lo sell Devoe lead-and-zinc for your tow a and country? The whole doctrine of it turns on these three points: (1) It is all paint and true paint: (2) It is the strongest paint; (8) It is full measure. Because it is all paint, true paint, proportioned for strength and full-measure, (1) It takes least for a job, (2) Looks best all the time; (3) Lasts longest; (4) Gather the trade, and holds customers. There is no such argument for any other paint; there is no other such paint; there is nothing but talk for any other paint. Devoe is the paint, if you want the facts on your side. The country is full of exper iences; we bring these experien ces to bear on your trade, if you sell Devoe. Yours truly F. W. Devoe &Cos., New York. —-♦— —t Pay your subscription and have your name placed upon the Hon or i^oll.
