Velure Gives Satisfaction.—An advertise- ment in this week's issue calls attention to the great value of Velure, a perfected Japan paint, superseding varnish with remarkable spreading, elastic, and weather resisting properties. It is sanitary, washable, will not crack, chip, peel, blister or fade. It is kept in 120 stock colours, any shade is matched, and one gallon covers about 90 square yards if applied on a flat non-absorbent surface. Velure his been successfully used in in-doors and out-doors for a great variety of purposes, in- cluding ships, yachts, bridges, public buildings, hos- pitals, schools, factories, water-works, shops, signs, carriages, bicycles, it- may be used as a cheap substitute for glazed bricks, or a cure for damp walls, as well as on machinery, motor cars, on gas and electric light standards. It is claimed that one important advantage of velure is that if used exactly as supplied, a better finish can be obtained with one, and often two coats less than paint or varnish, so that the saving in labour and material more than makes up for the difference in price. On this point an unsolicited testimonial received from the Rev. R. Burke, Catholic Church, Milford Haven, states that the iron looks very well with its one coat of velure. It has never been painted before, and the painters were surprised that one coat of paint made the church look so well."
