How We Build
The Structure of Good Paint
WE make good paints like
this to save you money ;
and we've put 72 years' experi
ence into them.
We use pure HONEEK
WHITE LEAD, pure linseed
Oil, zinc and color in scientific-
silly exact proportions.
The lead base is made so fine
that it will paes through a silk
screen with. 40,000 meshes to
the square inch. That means

A special device super-purifies
the lead, making it "Whiter" so
Fuller paints are exceptionally
clear-toned. All ingredients are
thoroughly mixed in specially
designed machines, so the paint
is always uniform and smooth.
The result on the house is a
fceautiful, elastic, tough, protec
tive coating that 6tays, if proper
ly applied, five or more years,
keeping the wood like new.
Some people figure paint econ
omy as "cost per gallon." That
is wrong. For "cheap" paint
Idoesn't cover so much surface
J ou buy more gallons. "Cheap"
paint is harder to spread and you
have, more labor cost. So the
. "cheap" paint on the house costs
just as much as the best of paint.
Don't allow surfaces to rot
it costs lets to paint them.
"Cheap" paint on tlis aver
age starts craf.king in twelve
months, while the best paint
stays intact from five to ten
times longer, if properly applied.
Figure the cost per year of
service and decide which paint
you want to u-e.

We Strive to Merit Approval
"Important" is the heading of
an anomious letter sent out to
the voters of Wasco county to
destroy votes for The Dalles
California, Highway Bond Issue.
I say anonimous because it is
signed "Citizens Welfare League
of Wasco County". "There is
no such animal". If this letter
was fair and its insticators were
clean purposed they would have
complied with the law and have
igned by their officers as pro-
vived by the Corrupt Practice
It has been stated by men who
are working heart and soul for
Wasco county in this road fight
as Well as for other county im
provements that Marcus A.
Mayer, a Portland retired capi
talist, with orchard property
holding in Wasco county is the
prime mover, the dark horse in
this attack on Wasco county's
much needed highway.
The people are entitled to
know about this letter and this
Citizen's Welfare League scheme
People can be fooled often and
it seems that the framers of this
plot desire to slip some eleventh:
hour stuff over on us without
givin time to answer-but we
are on the job. First read The

of Commerce ads . in the count y

Mark A. Mayer owns a palacial
farm mension and valuable or
chard east of Mosier. I'll not
state how the deal wa3 arranged
that the Columbia Highway hap
pens to go rightthrough his
property for about a mile and
that $400,000 or more was spent
for the first four miles of Wasco
County Columbia Highway that
passes his door. This $400,000
includes the paving, and the
crews are at work laying tne
cement as this goes to press
