Transcript I JAP-A-LAC—THE ORIGINAL [ TURPENTINE will remove old wax from floofs, and Wood Alcohol will remove old varnish or shellac, but it is a hard and tedious job and should be done by an experienced hand. After having cleaned the floor thoroughly, it should be treated in precisely the same manner as if you were finishing a new floor, method of which we have given on previous pages. Here is an unsolicited testimonial about this "dead black", finish which is better than columns of argument: DearSirs :—I used some of your Black (dead) Jap-a-lac and it is the best I ever used. I have worked at the picture frame business twenty years, and your Black is the best I have found, and I have used them all, I think. Yours truly, C. R. Fisk, 591 Atlantic Ave., Boston. We made Mrs. Hay happy. Dear Sirs :—Some months ago my wife ordered some " Jap-a-lac " from you, seeing your advt. I think you told her to get it at some place here in the city. She did so, and has become a "Jap-a-lac " fiend and a firm friend to it. She has gotten it on everything, even to the baby. But she can get no more, either from Wanamaker or Siegel, Cooper. She wants one gallon Natural, at once, or she will be entirely undone. Will you seJ L "- I Beware of Imitations and Substitutes \ express at once 1 r advise her where she ( 1 get it. Yours truly, Robert may, New England Ave., Summit, N. J. CHANDELIERS at of Dead Black Jap-a-lac applied tdeliers. Picture Frames. Fire Fro, one-half as good as a coat of Jap-a-lac. If you like a black finish, try a can o Jap-a-lac. This finish resists sun and rr TREATMENT OF OLD SOFT WOOD FLOORS Which are Disfigured with Knots, Stains, Cracks, E, IF THE cracks look badly and require filling, we recommend the use of a putty made by mixing dry white lead with JAP-A-LAC into a thick paste. It is not absolutely necessary to fill up the cracks in an old floor, but of course the filling of them produces BEFORE finishing old floors, we recommend the floors to be washed thoroughly with Sapolio and water, in order to remove any grease or dirt which is removable, and allow the floors to dry. After the floors are in proper condition, apply a coat of our Solid Yellow JAP-A-LAC over the entire floor. This coat is for a foundation coat and produces a uniform color on your floor, by covering up all the knots, stains and disfigurements. Should you find that one coat of the Solid Yellow JAP-A-LAC does not cover thoroughly, allow the first coat thirty-six hours to dry and then apply another coat. After having allowed the last coat thirty-six hours to dry, you will have a perfect surface or foundation for your finishing coats. By the "finishing coats" we mean the final effect you are desirous of obtaining. If you want an imitation of an Oak Hard Wood Floor, apply a coat of our Oak JAP-A-LAC over the Solid Yellow JAP-A-LAC foundation coat and you will be surprised at the pleasing results thus obtained. If you want a Mahogany effect, use the Mahogany JAP-A-LAC instead of the Oak. The Ox-Blood Red, Malachite Green and Walnut JAP-A-LAC, used over the Solid Yellow foundation coat, make hi 15
