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
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.

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 "-

TREATMENT OF OLD SOFT
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.
