Transcript I JAP-A-LAC—THE ORIGINAL FURTHER along in this booklet we have endeavored to give you a few instructions and methods for finishing all kinds of floors at the least expense and with the best possible results. Jap-a-lac does not disappoint. Once used it is always preferred. Gentlemen:—Please send me another pint of Oak Jap-a-lac, and a pint of Mahogany, and send by express. \ I can hardly find words to express how much I value it as ' a varnish and stain, and wish I could buy it in our town. j Respectfully, Mrs. Will Carter, f Micanopy, Fla. The many other uses to which Jap-a-lac can be put are worthy of mention. Our Colored Jap-a-lac can be used with splendid results in many places around public buildings, hotels and homes, where the old finish on the wood-work has perished. For instance: on the wainscoting, or mop- boards of bath-rooms, kitchens, laundries, toilet Beware of Imitations and Substitutes BEING of a durable nature, it can also be used on window sills and outside front doors. It covers up all mars and disfigurements and produces a smooth, brilliant durable finish, and has the same effect on the wood-work as "polishing has on an old pair In using our Colored Jap-a-lac for such purposes we always recommend you to use the color nearest that of the old finish, unless you are desirous of changing the color, which can be done by applying a sufficient number of coats to cover the old finish thoroughly, allowing each coat to dry before applying another. Our Colored Jap-a-lac may be applied by an inexperienced person, in the same manner as paint or varnish. We recommend, however, that the wood-work be washed thoroughly and allowed to dry before applying the Jap-a-lac. Our Natural or Clear Jap-a-lac is unexcelled for finishing new interior wood-work. It is transparent and light in color, dries hard, and always remains elastic, consequently will never crack or crumble, and being beyond all question and doubt the most durable floor varnish, or finish, ever produced, it will naturally make the best possible finish for all kinds of interior wood-work. Architects who have the interests of their clients at heart should specify and insist upon having Natural Jap-a-lac used, not only on floors, but also on all kinds of wood-work, for it dries with a soft, beautiful lustre, characteristic only of this varnish. Should a velvet or egg-shell finish be preferred, it may be produced by rubbing down the last coat of Jap-a-lac with powdered pumice-stone and water. This makes practically an indestructible finish. "Itv s like ii Gentlemen:—Upon request I received from your firm sample can of your Jap-a-hc Floor Finish, and have delayed acknowledgment of same this late, in order that I might satisfy myself as to its application on the floor I proposed using it; and now am pleased to say that my expectations persistency of your advertising, especially as regards Jap-a-lac. From my short experience with Jap-a-lac Floor Finish I am more than convinced that of all floor finishes it is tic one. Thanking you for your kind favor, I am, Respectfully, Frederick F. Hodges, Senior member of the firm of Hodges & Hodges, Architects. Cleveland, Ohio.
