-. __. MADE OF ZINC _ The sheet of metal under the kitchen stove is Zinc. So are the corrugated surfaces of a washboard, the tops of fruit jars, the cases of dry cell batteries and the plates that protect the boilers of ocean steamships from corrosion. In these and many other ways Zinc has long served many useful purposes; but it remained for The New Jersey Zinc Company to see and develop its greater possibilities. As a result of research and experimental work Zinc is now used for bottle caps, thimbles, clocks, buttons, shoe lace tips, building hardware and hundreds of other articles in daily use. The working out of these new uses in the interest of manufacturers is typical of the completeness of the service this organization offers. The work of its laboratories is as much a part of its activities as the operating of its mines and smelters and is available to all manufacturers who use Zinc products.
