W. REYNOLDS. Starkville, Miss. Dear Sir; If you could get the exclusive sale of a coal that would give double heat and cost no more, you’d jump at it, wouldn't you? You’d control the trade for a hundred miles! Devoe is like that among paints; a short ton is as good as a long one of any paint you can name; a gallon is worth more than two of many a popular paint. Suppose you have painted your house about once in three years ever since it was new; you buy the same number of gallons Devoe, have a third of it left, and it wears six years. Count your costs. $1.75 a gallon for paint; $3.50 a gallon for putting it on; you sav ed 5 gallons; $26.25 on this job. But you save the whole job of three years hence:' about $75. Put ’em together: SIOO. Can‘t reckon so accurately sa that; but you see how it goes. Paint isn‘t alike any more than coal. How much more is coal worth than 1-4 slate? Yours truly, P. W. Devoe &Cos., 16 New York.’ P. S. Yeates & Wallace sell our paint. HONOR KOJLLi J. W. Fox SI.OO Miss Grace Wood takes this method of informing her frinds and acquaintances that she will be with M.
