SHINGLETINT.

THE popular taste for staining shingles to produce harmonious color-schemes on exteriors appears to be on the increase, as the advantages of such treatment become more widely understood and appreciated.

In shingle-staining, not only is the taste for the beautiful gratified, but the life of the shingles is or should be greatly prolonged.

In Shingletint, made by Berry Brothers, of Detroit, the high-water mark of excellence in them. shingle stains is attained, and the demand for it is very great. It is made in all the popular and desirable shades, and is claimed to be the finest line of shingle-stains ever intro

TRYING TO FOLLOW THE LEADER.

It is probably only a matter of time when other Metal Ceiling manufacturers will try to follow in our footsteps. We took an advanced position when we originated and put in practice the idea of producing metal ceilings in complete Classified" designs of famous artistic styles.

The

Standard

American Brand.

This advance position we have been holding ever since, and in keeping with the character of our goods we have adopted for them the distinctive and appropriate name of "Classic" Metal Ceilings.

As a matter of course, the trade appreciates their value and superiority. Even competing manufacturers recognize the advantages of Berger's "Classic" Ceilings (although, of course, they can't be expected to admit it).

We venture, however, to predict that they will eventually proclaim the fact by themselves bringing out a few more-or-less complete "Classified" designs, perhaps they may even use the distinctive name "Classic" that we have adopted, and advertise their goods as "Classic" Metal Ceilings, who knows?

In any event we will still be found heading the procession. Our line is not only by far the most complete and comprehensive, but we are steadily adding to it, thus further increasing the already safe distance by which we lead.

For up-to-date Ceilings, come to us.
