CIIAS. DOIIKnTY , n : : N. i-ith st. OMAHA. In Paint ? the best is cheapest Strictly Pure White Lead is best ; properly applied it will not scale , chip , chalk , or rub off ; it. firmly adheres to the wood and forms a permanent base for repainting. Paints which peel or scale have to be removed by scraping or burn ing before satisfactory re painting can be done. In buying white lead it is im portant to obtain that which is genuine , strictly pure , and properly made. Time has proven that v/hitc lead made by the "Old Dutch" process of slow corrosion possesses qualities that cannot be-ob tained by any other method of manufacture. This process consumes four to six months time , and produces the brands that have given White Lead its character as the standard paint. "SOUTHERN" "COLLIER" "RED SEAL" are standard brands of strictly pure Lead made by the "Old Dutch" process. You get the best in buying them. For sate by all first class dealers la Paints. If you are going to paint , it will ppy you to send to us for a book containing information that may save you many a dollar , it will only cost you a postal card to do so.
