I'roni tho StrouiUbure Time?.
A drive through tlm rural districts1
of Monroe county will find that "the
old red barn" Is going out of fnshion.
Newly erected barns are being painted
In other colors.
"There wns a time," said a paint
salesman tho other day, "when every
farmer painted his bnrn red. Tho
paint used wns called Venetian red and
wns made of oxldo of Iron Instead
ot white lead nnd zinc. It cost about
half ns much ns lend paint and stood
the weather well. The farmer boughr
this paint dry and mixed It with oil
himself and put It on himself. Now I
suppose about oue-lhird ot the coun
try's barns are painted red and about
two-thirds In other colors, with the
proportion of red burns still decreas
ing. This change is duo somewhat U
fnshion, and more to the wide Intro
duction of mixed paints leady for us".
"Nowadays prepared paints arti put
up In seoren of colois nnd shades, amr
innnv of them are manufactured tmd
sold 'us cheaply as tho old Venetian
ted wns. In the old days If tho far
mer wanted to paint any color but veil
he had to mix his own colors. If"
couldn't get a. painter to come from
town and mix tho colors unless Im
could also have the job of doing tlm
painting. Now tho farmer can buy
paint In any color or i-hadc that he
wants from sample cards, and when
ho knows the men of surface to be
i.ntnted he can ascertain Jut tlm
"In modern barn painting, the bod'
Is ot one color und tlm trimming 01
another. A pleasing stylo Is colonial.

nnd the tilni white. Hut bnms nr.
painted also in grays nnd In otlwi

tho old ted barn is being mote and
more crowded out by thosre painted In
