TALKS ABOUT PAINT
DR. MORSMAN CONTINUES THE
STORY OF LINSEED OIL
Have You Waited For a Decline
In Paint? If So. You Are
Some one has said that linseed oil
is the life of the paint. Linseed
oil is more than that. it IS the
pa . I'm iv can be no paint with
out liases d oil la my last article
1 said there was but one other oil.
poppy oil. that had the drying prop
erties of linseed oil and that is out
of the question by reason of scarcity
and price. Therefore 1 said “No
linseed oil. no paint.” We could
mix a pigment with a solution of gut
of turpentine and it would cover the
surface of a board, and, if it was
protected from v.eather It would
stick for a while but it wouldn't be
paint. It is easily proved that lin
seed oil is paint Take a piece of
thin ppaper and flow a layer of
linseed oil ovt r it. Allow it to
harden. Flow another layer over
the first one and allow that to
harden. Repeat this until there are
four or five layers over the paper
one hardened before another is put
on. Now place all in water and
soak off the paper. You will have
film of oil that is tough, elastic and
absolutely water proof. Even gas
That film is the paint, we can add
nothing to it that will make it any
more protective When it Is spread
on wood it enters into all the open
pores of the wood and spreads its pro
tective coating over the surface.
It is one continuous sheet of im
pervious covering. We can not im
prove this covering except that we
can make it harder an dopaque.
Such a film as 1 have described
would be translucent almost trans
parent. Every blemish, every de
fect of the wood would show through.
The surface of such a film would
also mar and scratch like varnish so
it is desirable to harden it.
Some paint makers claim that their
Inspired formula is such that u
Hmi-tit Is formed with the linseed
oil that increases durability etc, etc.
That is only mu of their "talking
points." it Is a harmh ss fiction,
i'o •dlily tltey believe it because
many paint makers don’t know any
more about lie chemistry of paint,
than priiii , do. Til HUM IS NO
UNION I’.KTWNION LINSKlU) OIL

PITT INTO IT. , ,
Taki any paint pigment grind it
as fine as is possible, so that it is j
mi impalpaber power to the eye, I
and place a little under Hie micros-'
cope. It Is then easily seen that, the
powder is made up ofpnrticles .having
size, shape and dimensions. One pig
ment then is made up of particles,
when we mix these particlees witli
Hie oil they are field in suspension
and when the oil hardens these par
ticles are held in its meshes hut
still as separate particles. Suppose
we illustrate by example. We will
spread a layer of shot out on a piece
of paper, and pour over them thick
hot glue and allow it to harden. Let
us break this layer of glue and we I
find that the shot are imbedded in itj
and that we can see round and half
round holes that the shot occupied,
t hat is just what paint does. Take
a layer of dried paint, break it, and
show the fractional surface under the
microscope and the same appcuruncc
is presented except that the holes are
not round they are the shape of the
particles that occupied them.
faint, then is a mixture
of linseed oil with something
else in tile form of particles.
Here is another every day proof

t'erhups 1 have used many words
to show a palpable thing but 1 want
to make it plain tlmt the linseed oil
is the paint, livery thing else that
goes Into the paint is secondary.
If, then, the oil is the paint, qual
ity is a very important factor. None
of the standard brands of linseed oil
are absolutely pure but they are
nearly pure. For some pharmaceuti
cal purpose, notably the making of
surgeons soap, these standard oils
will not answer. They do not sapon
ify and a special, purified oil must be
used but all the standard brands are,
as 1 say, nearly pure and are pure
enough for paint purposees. The
brands that are most sold here are
Midland, Woodman and Mlnnesot
reliable and as good as the market
affords, but there are two other oils |
sold from the Omaha market and j
both of them have been retailed
here as good oils, that are adulterat
ed. The adulteratants are parra
flne oil and kerosine and they carry
about thirty percent of adulteration.
These oils are sold to the retailer
at fifteen or twenty cents below the
market price of good oil and the re
tailer sells it for Just enough less
than his competetors price to get the
trade but not low enough to excite
Adulterated oil is more likely to
be found in hardware stores than in
drug store because the druggist must
use linseed oil for many pharmacuti
cal purposes and he would more
quickly detect the adulteration.
A dealer might unwittingly buy this
adulterated oil for honest oil, but
the price should excite his suspicions
and it is therefore presumable that
the dealer who buys this oil to sell
to his customers is either not over
scrupulous or an easy mark.
It would not be wise for me to
print publicly the names of those two
brands of adulterated oils, but 1 am
ready to give them to any one who
asks at the store.
The consumer who buys this adul
terated oil is, of course, victimized.
The parrafine oil is an actual detri
ment to his paint, the kerosine will
evaporate. It is merely a “thinner."
Tile adulteration being thirty per
cent, almost one third, it follows that
the film of oil which the buyer de
pends upon for protection to his
building will be only two thirds the
thickness that he would have had. if
he had bought good oil.
Linseed oil is now retailing for
$l.ir> per gallon. Perhaps he bought
this aduterated oil for $1.10 but only
seventy per cent of it was linseed
oil so that he got eighty cents
worth of linseed oil for his one dollar
and ten cents, besides getting par
rafine oil in his paint which he didn't
