Hetty Green thinks she generally says,
that "a large number of divorces are due
to the fact that instead of learning how
to keep house, "the women prink up
and parade around: then the men pa
rade around, also, and the trouble be
gins." Mrs. Green has done some walk
ing about in her time, but she didn't

to keep house, too.—lnquirer.

Letter to Harry Hineliberffer.
Butler, Pa.
Dear Sir: The cost of labor in paint
ing a house is three times the coat of
the paint. You seem to save a little
when you buy a lower priced paint, but
you certainly add to the cost of labor
when you pay for spreading more
gallons. '
You don't even save oil the paint.
Devoe Lead and Zinc costs a little more
than mixed paints, but it takes fewer
gallons, and the cost is actually less
Wears longer too —longer than mixed
paints, longer than lead and oil.
You don't save a cent.
Mr, C. Loch, a painter in Magnolia,
Miss, writes:
After years of experiments with mixed
paints, 1 And tbat your paint covers more
surface to the gallon than any I have ever
used. For density and wearing qualities it
cannot be excelled.
Compared with lead and oil: A honse
belonging to the late President of the
Croton River Bank, at Brewsters. N.
Y., (cost $31,000) was painted with lead
and oil in 'B4 at a cost of #4OO. In 'B7
three years—jt was repainted with
Devoe at a cost of $350 In '97 the
house was still all right
Results: lead and oil—coat S4OO, wear
three years: Devoe—cost $350, wear ten

The stock company will furnish Pitts
burg theatre-goers with a striking nov
elty nest week in Clyde Fitch's delight
ful drama of New York social life,
which Miss Amelia Bingham presented
in Pittsburg last season to a succession
of crowded houses. While it is a play
of contemporaneous New York life, its
themes and situations are native to any
city in the country. The story tells of
a wealthy New York family, which
consists of Mrs Hunter, in her
days a pretty bnt humble woman, who
had succeeded in marrying into the
aristocracy, etc.
