Paint Your Houses WITH Rubber Paint is made of the purest and-inost durable material heretoV fore used by painters, combined with a large proportion of India Rubber, which is chemicilly'united in such a manner as to form a smooth, glossy, firm, durable, elastic, and beautiful paint, which becomes firmly cemented to the substance to which it is applied. f In ordinary paint the acid used in cor- roding the lead in a short time consumes and destroys the oil, which is the life of the paint. In this paint the rubber and chemicals are so united with the pigment that this corrod- injj-does not take place, but a permanent chemical compound is formed and the paint remains for years as elastic and bril- liant as when first applied. The Rubber Pnint is unaffected by change of temperature, is impervious to water, is adapted to all classes of work, and is in every way a better paint for either in- side or outside work than any other paint known, and will last at least three times RtBBBR PAINT is the best paint in the world. The Only Paint Which is absolutely adapted for all exterior and interior purposes. Made in pure white and the most stylish shades and tints.
