THE COLFAX GAZETTE TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR. AW^rd About ,t , , "^"HY "RAINIER LIQUID PAINT" IS BEST W There are some people who still think the old way of using lead and oil is the best. It is not. Lead and oil are neces sary in making good paint, but it has been proven beyond a doubt by years of use that to make the best paint possi f<>r the outside of buildings, it is necessary to add to the lead and oil a correct proportion of zinc. Your painter will tell you that white lead alone soon after being qpplied will chalk and powder off. Zinc alone will crack aud peel, but by correct proportions of both you have the bent paint that it is possible to produce. RAINIER LIQUID I'AINT contains both lead and zinc in correct pro portions, ground by the most powerful paint grinding machinery to a fine ries obtainable in no other way. We know that if we could induce you to use RAINIER once you would always insist on having it when you again used paint. We have such confidence in it that we atta...
