A WONDERFUL LAKE.
How 1(3 Yield Benefits the Rnral
Residents as "Well as the .City
(The Pacific Northwest.)
Trinidad Asphalt Lake, down In
the British West Indies, is one of tho
most remarkable and interesting for
mations over wrought by Dame Na
ture. It is called tho eighth wonder
of the world.
Tho bed of the lake Is evidently the
bowl-shaped depression about half a
mile In diameter.
Instead of being filled with water
this natural receptacle contains a
mass of black viscous material na
Probably tho first questions you
are likely to ask are: How did it get
there? Where does It come from?
This lake is fed like many lakes of
water by subterrannean springs, but
these Bprlngs, instead of giving forth
water are the media through which
the asphalt comes up from the Inte
rior of the earth, whose "Internal
workings" are responsible for the
production of this peculiar material
which has proven so useful to civili
zation. The Barber Asphalt Paving Com
pany, Philadelphia, was among the
first to recognize the immense com
mercial valuo of asphalt and after
making repeated tests of this mate
rial wero so Impressed with the qual
ity of asphalt yielded by Trinidad
Lake that they secured control of
Its output and have been bringing
this product to the United States for
many years and adapting it to tho
use of modern civilization.
One of the most Important uses to
which they have put It Is to make
"a water proofing roofing that defies
the storms, heat, cold and every other
weather condition. This ls called
Genasco Ready Hoofing. It doesn't
leak, and thus has tho advantage over
shingles which warp and rot; tin,
which pits and rusts; and tho coal
tar roofings, which crack and go to
Genasco is adapted for every build
ing on the farm, from your own resi
dence down to the chicken house
and if you cover the chicken house
all over with Genasco it keeps It
mighty warm in winter.
Any handy man about the farm
can lay Genasco Ready Roofing. This
saves the expense of an experienced
roofer, and gives lasting protection,
so that there is considerable saving
