—the very best plaster on the market.
This plaster requires no sand and is already for
use when you get it from us. This plaster is composed
of wood fiber, which gives it flexibility, toughness,
lightness and strength, and the composition is such
that nails can be driven into it and withdrawn the same
as in wood. It is a non-conductor of sound, electricty,
heat and cold, and will make a hard smooth wall. It is
a proof against damage by water, and is not injured .by
freezing. It finishes naturally in a beautiful white, but
'•eadily takes decorative substances, such as paints,
kalsomines and fresco colors. In fact it is the very
best plaster on the market. Call on our agent for book­
