First We Furnish Everything COMPLETE For the Bathroom and Kitchen PLUMBING ELECTRIC PUMPS SEPTIC TANKS WATER HEATERS There is little pure iron found on earth. Occa- sionally a pure meteor falls from the heavens, qnd this is practically pure iron. Iron ore is merely oxide of iron, or iron rust. It is something which definitely shows the influ- ence of water on it. We must take it to the mill qnd subject it to certain treatment in order to convert it into the iron and steel of commerce. The moment we expo|e it agqjn to moisture, it starts resolying 'itself again into the form in which it was'mined—rust. If iron or steel could be kept absolutely dry it would, not rust, so steps must be taken to bar moisture insofar as we arc able. The common», -' est and most effective method is to cover the metal with a protective coating of paint or simi- lar preservative.
