method or sustaining the appearance
and general upkeep of any commu

dia rubber would not be as well protect

with a good oil pnlnt, This is due to
the fact that a sheet of rubber Is not
so durable or as waterproof ns a thin
dried film of pnlnt. The inner mate
rial when applied dries to n continuous
elastic film containing finely divided
particles of metallic, wear resisting
pigments. A squnre foot of such a

Implements, windmills and other struc
