Jerry Evans Ahead of EDISON The EVANS Two- Piece Cement blocks beng made and laid in the Hardcastle Kenyon store-house on East Sixth Avenue makes a double wall with a complete air-space between the 'L' blocks all the way around the building. This not only prevents the water from going through the blocks but also prevents the greater danger of the coldness reaching and "sweating" the inside walls. Plaster may be applied directly on the inside surface of the wall and avoids the use of furring and lathing. The building will never need painting. The house will be warmer in Winter and cooler, in the Summer.

The coal-bill will be less. The property will sell for more; it will be a richer-looking structure. There is no cement block so safe, so economical. The blocks are made strong with SUNFLOWER PORTLAND CEMENT. Vieit the site and examine.

See J. E. EVANS for estimates. You will be up-to-date, then..
