letter to (ieo. I^etterer,
Butlpr, Ba.
Dear Sir: There are two sorts of fur
niture. Yon know both, for you sell
'em both. One sort looks better than it
is. and the other is better than it looks.
There isn't any other sort.
The same, two sorts of paint, no more;
and we make 'em both—we make tons
of stuff that isn't worth its freight.
Belongs to the business—have to. Be
longs to your business —you have to.
But this is aside We put into cans,
with our name on, the very be. t paint
there is in the world; Devoe Lead and
Zinc. It takes fewer gallons than
mixed paints, and it wears twice as long
as lead and oil.
C. O. Brown & Bro., Columbia. S. C.,
Mr. O. O. Brown employed an experienced
painter to paint Ids house with lJevoti Lead
and Zinc. The painter, on seeing Hie paint
that was sent to tlio house, said that tr.ere
was not enough; 110 was so sure of this that
he opened up all except one five-gallon kit.
\Y hen the Job was done he returned the H ve
gallun kit »nd abont as much more In open
vessels. Other painters who have been
using mixed paints have had the same ex
perience with Devoe Lead and /.inc.
