AMERICANS ARE PAINT USERS
It has been remarked that the
American people consume more paint,
both in tho aggregate and per capita,
than any other people In the world.
In a recently published article on the
subject it was figured that our yearly
consumption Is over 100,000,000 gal
lons of paints of all kinds, of which
over one-half is used in the paintings
of houses.
The reason for this great consump
tion is twofold: a largo proportion
of our buildings, especially in small
towns and rural districts, are con
structed of wood, and we, as a people,
are given to neatness and cleanliness.
For, take it all in all, there is noth
ing so cleanly or so sanitary as paint
Travel where we will throughout
the country, everywhere we find the
neat, cheerful painted dwelling, pro
claiming at once the prosperity and
the self-respect of our population. -
Fifty years ago this was not so;
painted dwellings, while common In
the larger cities and townB, were the
exception In the rural districts; be
cause, on the one hand, a large pro
portion of those buildings were tem
porary makeshifts, and, on the other
hand, because paint was then a lux
ury, expensive and difficult to obtain
In the out-of-the-way places, and re
quiring special knowledge and much
preparation to fit it for use.
The introduction of ready mixed or
prepared paints, about I860, changed
the entire aspect of affairs. As the
Jack-of-all-trades told the Walking
Delegate In one of Octave Thanet's
stories, "Anyone can slather paint."
The insurmountable difficulty with
our predecessors was to get the paint
ready for "slathering." That the
country was ready for paint in a con
venient, popular form is 1 shown by
the immediate success of the indus
try and its phenomenal growth In
50 years from nothing to 60,000,000
gallons the estimated output for
1900.
Some pretty severe things have
been written about and said against
this class of paints, especially by
painters and manufacturers of cer
tain kinds of paste paints. Doubtless
in many instances these strictures
have been justified and some fearful
ly and wonderfully constructed mix
tures have in the past been worked
off on the guileless consumer in the
shape of prepared paint But such
products have had their short day
and quickly disappeared, and the too
enterprising manufacturers that pro
duced them have come to grief in
the bankruptcy courts or have
learned by costly experience that
honesty is the best policy and have
reformed their ways.
The chief exceptions to this rule
are some mall order houses who sell
direct to the country trade, at a very
low price frequently below the
wholesale price of linseed oil. The
buyer of such goods, like the buyer
of a "gold brick," has only himself to
blame if he finds his purchase worth
less. With gold selling at any bank
or mint at a fixed price, owners of
gold do not sell it at a discount; and
with linseed oil quoted everywhere
at 50 to 70 cents a gallon, manufac
turers do not sell a pure linseed oil
paint at 30 or 40 cents a gallon.
The composition of prepared paints
differs because paint experts- have
not yet agreed as to the best pig
ments and because the daily results
of tests on a large scale are constant
ly improving the formulas 'of manu
facturers; but all have come to the
conclusion that the essentials of good
paint are pure linseed oil, fine grind
ing and thorough Incorporation, and
In these particulars all the products
of reputable manufacturers corre
spond; all first-class prepared paints
are thoroughly mixed and ground and
the liquid base Is almost exclusively
pure linseed oil, the necessary vola
tile "thinners" and Japan dryers.
The painter's opposition to such
products is based largely on self-interest
He wants to mix the paint
himself and to be paid for doing it,
and to a certain class of painters it
is no recommendation for a paint to
say that it will last five or ten years.
The longer a paint lasts the longer
he will have to wait forhe Job of
repainting. The latter consideration
has no weight with the consumer,
and the former is a false idea of
economy. Hand labor can never be
as cheap or as efficient as machine
work, and every time the painter
mixes paint, did he but know It, he
Is losing money, because he can buy
a better paint than he can mix at
less than it costs him to mix it
Prepared paints have won, not only,
on their actual merits, but on their
convenience and econony. They are
comparatively cheap and they are in
comparably handy. But when all is
said, the experienced painter is the
proper person to apply, even a ready
mixed paint He knows better than
anyone else the "when" and "how"
and . the difference between painting
and "slathering" Is much - greater
than It appears to a novice.. Every
one to his trade, and after all paint
ing Is the painter's trade and not the
householder's.

ABOUT HOLLYHOCKS.
How to Grow Them from Seed In
stead of thsOId-Fashloned Way ;
frtia Cuttings.
The old-fashioned way of Increasing
a stock of hollyhocks was by cuttings,
that is. taking pieces of young shoots,
consisting of two Joints with. lower
leavas removed, and rooting them in
fine soil In August That is the only
way of Increasing a stock of any given
variety, as tho hollyhock does not
come true from seed.
The July number of the Garden
Magazine, however, advises growing
from seed, as less troublesome than
the tedious cutting method, and as se
curing very satisfactory results from
the new and better varieties of to-day.
Directions for this mode of prop?a
tlon are given, and should be put In
practice this month.
'Sow Beeds in July in a drill one
Inch deep In a sunny, rich soil, leav
ing plenty of space between the seeds
to allow the ycang plants to grow
without crow ng until the next
spring not less luan four Inches,
lue drills should be 18 Inches apart,
to permit cultivation either with the
'wheel cultivator or hand hoe. At the
approach of wter protect the plants
by a light covering of straw and
leaves with the boards placed over all,
both to hold the covering and to shed
water. This Is of course best dona
by having two boards Joined together
to form an Inverted V. If It -is "de
sired to keep the colors separate, of
course they must be labeled In the
rows where sown; but If a mixed bed
of hollyhocks Is wanted It Is far bet
ter to mix the seeds before sowing,
for somehow or other It la hard to
plant a mixed bed from separate col
orsat least it is hard to get It done
satisfactorily.
"When the covering Is removed the
following spring the plants will be In
perfect condition to transplant to the
positions they are to fill in the gar
den. When lifting them take great
care to dig deep and secure intact the
long, fleshy roots, as they are the
standby of the plants during the stre.3
of hot weather and drought. The rea
son why there are so many hollyhocks
of only average quality seen, and so
few really good ones, Is that Insuffi
cient care is ;ven to preparing the
soli. The hollyhock Is a plant that
can hardly be overfed, and revels In a
deep,, rich soil. Double dig the place
where they are to be planted and put
a generous quantity of rich manure
in the trench when refilling It; or
feed freely all through the growing
season with nitrate of soda, one-half
ounce, and superphosphate and kalnit,
one-fourth ounce each, to two gallons
of water. Give this once in three
weeks.
"The all-outdoor cultivation of hol
lyhocks is far more simple than the
old way of starting them under glass
and, moreover, gives us plants with
stronger constitution. Treated in this
way as a biennial, it will give better
results than when grown as a peren
nial." WHEN BATHING THE BABY.
A Flannel Apron Should Be Worn,
Water Tested by a Thermom
eterHow to Handle. "
Who is to give baby his bath snould
lc provided with a large flannel apron;
fastened to this from the waist is
pinned a large soft towel. Fill then
bot the tub and the basin with water.
The temperature of the bath should be
98 to 100 degrees neither under nor
oyer. Rely upon the thermometer, Do
not test the water with the hand;
what may eem fairly warm to an
adult hand may be hot enough to scald
a baby's tender skin.
It Is well to have a small pitcher of
exceedingly hot water at hand for use
In case the water In the bathtub should
cool before the baby Is ready to go Into
it If for any reason a bath ther
mometer cannot be had, the elbow
affords a fair test. Do not have the
water hotter than Is comfortable to
the elbow.
When everything Is in readiness the
baby "Is taken on the lap, the towel
having been pusxed to one side so that
tr-f baby lies In the flannel apron.
Handle him as little as possible, roll
ins him when a change of position is
necessary. But do not lift him, as
pressure on the stomach and nbdomen
where delicate organs lie, is uncom
fortable and often proves injurious to
the- child. Chicago Tribune.
