—Since the Butler base ball club re
turned from its trip to Franklin and Oil
City it has been playing a little bit the
best article of base ball ever seen in the
town; the players are working together
like machinery and coach and encour
age each other all the time. The pitch
ers. Harkins and Hazelton, are stars,
field their positions excellently, run
bases well and can always be depended
on to do some hitting. In the last five
games Butler's opponents have scored
only one run. Saturday Leechburg
was defeated 18x0. Anyone who jour
neys to the ball park these days gets bis
money's-worth and then some. Mana

ment against outsiders.

Letter to A. W. McCullougli,
liutler, Pa.
Dear Sir: But few of the men who sell
the hundred different paints in the mar
ket know much about tnem. All Devoe
agents ha*'e a state chemist's certificate
telling just what it's made of; they
know a good deal, not only about Devoe
but the rest; we see that they do. We
buy every paint, that has any sale, and
analyze it. Our agent finds-out all
about it.
When we know wnai a paint is rnade
of, we know how it will act; we know
how far it goes, and how long it wear*.
Devoe is the standard: call it 100. The
best of the rest is about 75; the worst
about 25; the rest are between.
But the men, who sell them, don't
know any better. They know what the
maker tells them. That is: they know
that he tells them. They don't know
whether he tells them the triith or not.
The business is not conducted on
knowledge; the legs they know, the
more comfortable they are*
Yours truly.
