Transcript I JAP-A-LAC—THE ORIGINAL | |"AP-A-LAC is beyond a doubt the most durable floor finish on the market and it is the best reviver of old wood-work ever offered. We offer this letter in proof of this Gentlemen:—I think your Jap-a-lac the best thing I ever tried for my floor. I used to dress it every spring with Hard Oil Finish, and in no time it would be all scarred up, but it is now four years since I dressed my floor with Jap-a-lac, and it is not so bad as it would have been with the Hard Oil Finish. Yours very truly, Mrs. Helen M. Church, Cherryfield, Me. That Jap-a-lac will do all we claim for it is proved by the hundreds ofletters we have received from satisfied users. Here is one: Gentlemen :—I am highly delighted with Jap-a-lac, and will take pleasure in recommending it to my friends. Very truly, Mrs. Eugene B. Heard, "Rose Hill," Middleton, Ga. Jap-a-lac is a practical finish. Good results are easily obtained and it is not expensive. It is just what the house-wife wants to use occasionally in brightening up her home without much trouble and at little cost. Here is a letter that proves the worth of Jap-a-lac as a practical Dear Sirs :—I have bought your varnish and also colored Jap-a-lac ever since I wrote to you. My floor is O. K. and every one admires same. Have used your white Jap-a-lac for bedstead and find it is just the thing. Very truly yours, John Laeckerach, 7154 Ingleside Ave., Chicago. 10 Beware of Imitations and Substitutes PERHAPS you have some wicker furniture which is beginning to look soiled. Children's hands are not always clean, you know, and of course, they rub them first on just the things that show dirt the quickest. Jap-a-lac it, and if you would like something novel and very popular, use ox-blood red, malachite green or mahogany. More than satisfied. Dear. Sirs :—Yours of the 7th received. I have used several gallons of Jap-a-lac during the past year which I procured of R. J. Weir here, who ordered it for me. I have used it on floors, porch floors, window boxes, shelves, furniture, etc., and it has invariably proven more than satisfactory. Yours truly, W. A. Dixon, L. Box 24, Portage, Wis. I IMPORTANT SUGGESTIONS J NEW FLOORS The best woods to use for new floors are the following: Maple,Oak (straight or quartered),Parquetry Flooring,Rift- sawed Southern Pine, Cherry and Birch. All of these woods are of hard nature and can be finished in beautiful effects. In laying new floors we recommend the use of Asbestos Paper between the rough floor and the top floor, for it deadens the sound, absorbs moisture, makes the floor as near dust-proof as possible, and is also more or less fire-proof. The floor boards should not be over 1^ inches wide, which reduces the shrinkage to a minimum, and they should be tongued, grooved and thoroughly dried before being laid.
