The old-fashioned plan of "filling in " walls of wooden buildings with brick has during the past two years been entirely superseded by use of a Sheathing Felt, made of the indestructible fibrous mineral Asbestos.

This Felt is fastened to the sheathing boards and the clap boards are nailed over it. It is air-tight and damp-proof, and costs but a trifle. It is in use on thousands of firstclass houses, and is invaluable for barns cattle sheds, &c. Use the Asbestos Roofing!
