Dear Sir: The cost of lalmr is
painting a house is three times the
cost of the paint. You si cm to
save a little when you buy a lower
priced paint, but you certainly add
to the cost of labor when you pay
for siivading more gallons,
You don't evcy save on the
paint. Devuc Lead and Zinc costs
a little more than nixed paints, but
it takes fnwcr gallons, and the cost
is actually less.
Wears longer too longer than
mixed paints, longer than lead and
You don't save a cent.
Mr. C. Loch, a painter in Magno
lia, Miss., writes:
After years of experiments w ith
mixed paints, I find that your paint
covers more surface to the gallon
than any 1 have mr used. For
density and wearing nualiiics it
cannot be excelled.
Compared with lead and oil: A
house belonging to the late Pres
ident of the C'roton lliver Hank, at
Hrewstcrs, N. Y., (cost 0 1,000)
was painted with lead and oil in '8 i
