The dead air cell, although a secret of nature for many years, haa been providing scientific insulation to many races since the beginning of time. Nature taught the Eskimo to build his home with snow blocks and cover hia body-with the-skina of fur-bearing animals, both containing millions of dead air cells. The South Sea Islander thatches his hut with sea grass,, reeds, and bamboo polos. All three natural dead air cell insulators afford maximum protection against the blaing sun. Live air ia such a poor insulator that it offers no resistance whatsoever to the heat of the sun. In the thermos bottle, air has to be removed in order to achieve the dead air cell principle of insulation. Whereas, your house is surrounded by over 1,500 cubic feet of livn air space, located between the walls and roof structure, giving you less protection against heat and cold than ia enjoyed by the South Sea islanders or the Eskimo. Science has been at. work tor years searching for the perfect dead air cells; with which to fill these gaps and thus stop the in- between air circulation which actually conveys the heat away in winter, and transfers it inside in summer. Although nature gave us the formula it took science many years to develop a man-made product to meet present day require^ nients.. The product had to embody tins Dead Air-Cell Principle and be ... inexpensive . . . heat-resisting . . . fire-proof . . . moisture-proof . . . decay-proof . . . vermin . . . proof . . . sound- deadening . k . . non-corrosive . . . odorless and clean. It had to-as-sure a compact fill between the walls, a quick and inexpensive method of application and alifetime of uninterrupted service. Capitol Rock Wool Supplied the Answer It's a product of nature scientifically reconstructed to utilize r.h« dead air cell principle of insulation. FOf.R TVCHES OP CAPITOL BOCK WOOL PROVIDES GREATER INSULATING EFFECT THAN A SOLID BOCK 11 FEET THICK Fov years you have been enjoying the benefits of Rock Wool insulation in your stove, where the interior of the oven may reach 500 and more degrees, and the exterior is barely warm to your touch. It's this insulation which has also made possible low sosr. electric refrigeration. Now you can enjoy all the benefits of this new discovery 12 months %f the year. Every good refrigerator ia built with 2 to 3 inches of the best insulation available. It is put there to overcome a temperature of only 30 degrees.

There's a treat and a new sleeping experience in store for those to whom healthful and restful sleep is a necessity. Is it any wonder that property owners everywhere are insulating with Capitol Rock Wool? Living takes on a new meaning in a Capitol Rock Wool insulated house. Heat waves may come and go, but you enjoy an atmosphere of coolness and comfort almost beyond description. From kitchen to living room, and from first floor to finished attic you experence the same degree of desirable comfort. IN OTHEB, WORDS— Here is summer air conditioning in its .simplest, most efficient and inexpensive application, devoid of complicated machinery, electric requirements or service problems, rendering an everlasting service to every member of your houshold. Rock Wool Furnishes Fire Protection In less than ten minutes an uninsulated house can become a blazing inferno. Last year fire destroyed property valued at 260 million dollars and killed over 10,000 men; women, and Children. Here again we see the detriment of having live air spaces between walls and roof structure. Contrary to popular notion, fire does not spread along surfaces, but is carried from section to section by the violent whirling of air and flames between the walls, which offer no resistance to their spread. But there is undisputable proof that flames cannot spread through the fire-resisting properties of Capitol Rock Wool, which confines the fire to the original area, and starves it by keeping air from circulating. Capitol Rock Wool is pure rock and is therefore as indigestible to rodents or insects as it is to humans. A fill of Capitol Rock Wool between the walls of your -house forms a barrier against rodent and insect life which makes it difficult for these pests to travel and live within your walls. Watch the Snow on Your Roof and Your Neighbor's Roof Warm shingles and melting snow play havoc with roof construction. Certain warm spots on your roof melt snow faster than others. This forms puddles of water which soak into every open joint and and crevice. At night, lower temperatures cause this water to freeze and expand, resulting in cracked roofing, open joints and damaging leaks. And no more lath marks. We have seen many ceilings ruined by lath marks caused by the difference in heat resistance between the plaster and where the plaster and lath join togther. A layer of Capitol Rock Wool insulation equalizes the resistance and permanently corrects this defacing problem. . Here are Five Important Points 1. We honestly believe that Capitol Rock Wool insulation would have been included in the original plans for your house, had it been available at that time and had you known the facts as presented herein. 2. We don't know of a single item which contributes , as much as Capitol Rock Wool to comfort, health, economy, and safety—or that guarantees all year automatic service; is everlasting; is free from fuel, upkeep and service problems; requires no visible space, and is immovable and noiseless. 3. We can't point to another single kind of insurance which works to avert disasters, safeguards your home against the' destructive forces of nature or affects the welfare of your household more than Capitol Rock Wool. 4. While from a dollars and cents standpoint, Capitol Rock Wool has no equal you get more than a dollar in return for every 50c you invest. Capitol Rock Wool insulation will cost you positively nothing. Your original cash investment is amortized within a few years—but your dividends on fuel savings and on the preservation of health and property continue for the rest of your life. It is everlasting! 5. We live but once! And,we.are entitled to all the comfort, health, and happiness which life-^af fords, so'don't let anything deprive you from enjoying Capitol Rock Wool insulation now forevermore.
