All of its products have been tested lor Heather conditions in (his territory. The company sells directly from the factory to the consumer in (juantities desired. Decorator in Business Here Since 1899 Turns to Making of Products "Made in Mason City, Iowa" is not the most expected label to be found on a paint can, but paint is actually manufactured here. The Bull Paint company, 326 First street southwest, sells its products directly from the factory to the consumer. The years that Charles F, Bull, owner and manager, has been in the painting industry in Mason City stand as a guaranty of the quality of the product manufactured. Those who have known Mr. Bull since he started here as an interior decorator in 1SDO have associated him with many superior painting jobs in the city. For six years he had an establishment near the fire station; then was in the old Elks building for six years; was a few years iu the basement of the Kirk building; and then constructed his owr shop on First street southwest in 1922. Enters Manufacturing. On the bank of Willow creek he constructed a shop, 40 by 65 feet, with large windows on all sides of it. In this well lighted shop he planned to enter the automobile painting in- Uusti-y, but the varnishes and paints used in the early days of automobile manufacture were changed for new finishes and Mr. Bull changed his shop accordingly. In 1929 he installed equipment for the manufacture of paint. At present the Bull Paint company is servicing a territory of 50 miles radius with paint made in Mason City. The Leadanzink for exterior surfaces and Dullsheen for interior are the two leading products manufactured. A complete line of colors is stocked. Enamels and varnishes are also manufactured and the company is also the distributor of Cabot's Roofing Collopakes, used in the re-finishing of roofing surfaces. Having dealt with old reliable companies for years as a painter, Mr. Bull has utilized his experience in the paint field to obtain the best For Accurate Copies of Any Subject Use PHOTOSTAT S Rapid Service Reasonable Prices Phone 828 Kayenay Engraving and Color Plate Company Makers of Quality Printing Plates, Photostats and Blue Prints «s\:5ssvA® \ % . . . IS BETTER BREAD of raw materials. The white lead Mr. Bull purchases from the Missouri mines. It is ground through a 325 mesh screen and is as near perfect in texture and whiteness as can be obtained. The dry products used in the making of paint are purchased in 50 pound bags and the lead in barrels. All of this material has been produced for years and tested for weather conditions in this territory. With three paint grinders, the Bull Paint company can supply practically any demand for its product at any season of the year. A large pebble mill, filled with 450 to 500 pounds of pebbles grinding against terra cotta surfaces, mixes the liquids with the dry products so that paint comes out of the machine ready for use or canning. Two stone mills are also used by Mr. Bull in grinding paint and in this process the paint is pressed through grooves in the two surfaces of the mill and comes out in paste form that must be thinned before using. Mixes to Order. One of the features of the Bull Paint company is the manufacturing of paint to order in any color the customer might desire. Odd shades may be obtained in quantities that the mixing of standard brands might not produce. The paint is of high quality, made from finely ground pigments, free from grit of any kind, and is canned in convenient sizes and labeled with the company's own labels. Varnishes, oils, turpentine and other liquids used in the painting- industry are also distributed by the company. Mr. Bull has continued his painting business and interior decoration and employs six persons to work on a large number of contract jobs, while his grandson, Robert Bull, is engaged largely in the manufacture and distribution of paint. Mr. Bull is also the distributor of Blue Diamond cleanser, another Iowa product.
