Dear Sirs: Have yon found this out?

for a job than of anything else: less
gallons; less money.
M A Thomas, paint e--, Lynchburg, Va.

job I did with yoar paint I estimated 87
gallons; had 12 gallons left over. Since
then I nave not used any other kind of
paint bnt Devoe lead-and-zinc; I recom
mend it to all my customers. When I
commence a job, I tack up a card read
ing as follows: M A Thomas, contrac
tor; Devoe Paint."
Putting it on costs two or three times
as much as the paint. Have you found
this out? You can paint Devoe in less
time: less time; lees money.
Have you found this out? Devoe
wears longer than anything else.
Yon don't object to long time between

Friday. A number of witnesses for
and against the condemnation were ex
amined. Surveyor C. F. L. McQuistion
and George Schalfaer, Sr. stated they
had examined the Main street. Thorn
creek, Glade Mills and a number of
smaller bridges and culverts for the
County Commissioners, who are oppos
ing the condemnation, and found them
all out of repair and in snch shape as
to require rebuilding at an early date.
The cost of replacing the Main street
bridge and approaches was estimated
at (13.000. and that of the other bridges
together at nearly as much. D. H.
Sutton, one of the witnesses, said he
overheard an offer by Judge Bredin to
sell the Butler county portion of the
road for (7000. The Plauk Road Co. is
asking (10.000 for the road. The hear
ing of testimony was concluded Friday.
Monday evening the viewers made
their report, refusing to recommend the
condemnation. The County Commis
sioners showed that a number of
bridges are in bad shape, and it is prob
able that h»d the viewers reported in
favor of condemning and awarded dam
ages, an appeal and change of venue,
with a repetition of the Beaver county
bridge cases would result. They also
claimed the proceedings were commenc
ed because the road was no longer pay
ing. Judge Bredin, secretaiy and
treasurer of the company, when on the
stand stated the company thought they

years and ten months.
