Both homes cost the same to build Consider their value today OTH the homes you see here were built of the same materials. The workman ship in both was of equally high standard. The designs were identical-the costs alike. Yet the passing years have made quite a change, a change in appearance, a change in dollars and cents. One house is ugly. Steps, window sashes, porch pillars are rot ting. The entire house is in danger. The second house still looks like new. It needs no costly repairs. It's worth every cent it originally cost, and more. What makes the difference? From year to year the surface of the second has been saved and kept beautiful by a constantly maintained film of weather-resisting white-lead paint. Your best weather insurance Dutch Boy white-lead is nature's true paint pigment. It is made from lead and like the metal possesses extreme durability, tough ness and weather-resistance. Mixed with pure linseed oil, it makes a paint that neither force nor time's changes can separate from the surface it covers. In resisting the at- tacks of weather, it wears down gradually -but smoothly, with no cracking, no scaling. A new booklet, "Painting-Protective and Decorative," tells what white-lead paint is, what it does, and why it gives com plete protection to the surface. Write for it.
