For nearly three centuries this unpainted house has stood exposed to the weather. Continuously occupied and still almost perfectly preserved, it offers convincing proof of the enduring qualities of WHITE PINE Ever since the Pilgrims landed, White Pine has been universally recognized as the wood preferred above all others in home-building. And figuring value in terms of service, it is the most economical. White Pine does not shrink, swell, crack, twist, warp or rot; and once in place it "stays put," after years of exposure, even in the closest fitting mitres and in delicate mouldings and carvings. It takes paints and stains perfectly. Investigation of the merits of White Pine will well repay anyone seeking a wise choice of building materials. Send today for our free booklet, "WHITE PINE IN HOME-BUILDING." It is beautifully illus trated and full of valuable information and suggestions on home-building. If there are children in your home, send also for "The Helen Speer Book of Children's White Pine Toys and Fur niture," a fascinating plan book, from which a child may build its own toys and toy furniture.
