Letter to Findley, the Photog
Dear Sir; Your are an artist, what do
yon know about paint?
White lead is 2000 years old, and zinc
abont 50. The Greeks knew white lead.
Lead and oil is old fashion paint, and
aiuc is a baby comparatively. But zinc,
if properly ground with lead, prolongs
the life of the paint from about three
years at the most, to six.
Do you know that? It isn't your busi
ness to know it: but you are an artist.
The sun, that paints for you, destroys
lead and oil. but scarcely affects Devoe.
Devoe is the paint that lasts six years;
yes, two or three times six years in

On account of the Convention of Fed

special excursion tickets from all
stations on,its line, to Loa Angeles aud

until June 25 when properly validated.

Tour to the Yellowstone Park.
The reduced rates authorized by the
transcontinential railroads on account
of the Annual Convention of the Na
tional Educational Association, to be
held in Minneapolis, July 7 to 11, 190*2.
have enabled the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company to offer to those contemplating
attendance at this Convention an op
portunity, under the direction of its
popular Personally-Conducted Tourist
System, not only of visiting the beauti
ful city in which the Convention is to
be held, and participating in the de
liberations of the Convention, but also
of visiting the Yellowstone National
Park, at a cost impossible under ordinary
conditions of travel.
The Yellowstone Park is never more
attractive than during the month of
July, and the tourists under the care of
the Pennsylvania Railroad will be
afforded the fullest opportunity of visit
ing all its unique attractions, including
the Mammoth Hot Springs, the Geysers
the beautiful Lake, and the Grand
Canon of the Yellowstone.
The tour will leave New York and
Philadelphia, Saturday, July 5, and re
turn Sunday, sflilv 20. Round-trip
tickets, covering all necessary expenses
for the entire trip, including one berth
in Pullman sleeper, will be sold at rate
of $l5O from all points on the Pennsyl
vania Railroad east of Pitjsbnrg.
When two persons occupy one berth,
the rate will be $142 for each person.
Rates from Pittsburg will be $5 less
Tourists will use-a special train over
the entire trip, with the exception of
the six days devoted to the tour of the
Park, T/ben stages and the fine hotels
maintained in the Park will be utilized.
This special train will consist of a Pull
man dining car, sleeping cars and an
obseivation car, all of the highest grade
and the passengers will find them fully
as comfortable and convenient as the
best hotels. During the .three days at
the Convention iu Minneapolis. July 7
to 9, inclusive, t bis palatial train will
be at the command of the tourists,
obviating the necessity of securing ac
commodations at hotels.
The beauties of the Yellowstone Na
tional Park, most aptly termed Nature's
Wonderland, must be seen to be appre
ciated. From the top of the stages in
which the tour of the Park is made,
there is spread out before the traveler a
constantly-changing panorama of
wonders snow-crowned mountains;
tumbling and tossing rivers; Yelllow
stone Lake, like a great blue sea nestled
amongst the beetling crags, at an alti
tude above that of the summit of Mt.
Washington; the curious natural springs
where chemical deposits glisten in the
sun's rays with all the colors of tbe
rainbow; and the Geysers, ever present
ing a scene of varied charm and awe
The accommodations cn this tour will
necessarily be limited, and intending
tonrists should apply early in order to
secure reservations of space. A detailed
itinerary is in course of preparation,
and all inquiries regarding accommoda
tions should be addressed to Geo. W.
Boyd, Assistant General Passenger
Agent, Pennsylvania Railroad, Broad

When I Say That
The Davis Sewing Machine leads all
others, it is not merely to fill a column
with an advertisement. I mean that no
other machine is so simple' I mean
that no other machine is so finely made!
And that no other machine is so easily
run! The "Davis" is polished like a
watch; it will not kill a woman to run
it; it will do more than double the
variety of work, without basting, than
any other machine can do. All other
sewing-machine men acknowledge this,
but says, "Onr's is the cheapest." But
I say that to buy a cheap sewing ma
chine is not economy. The best is al
ways the cheapest. I also sell Behr
