BARTON'S GARNET' PAPER. There are perhaps six or eight different concerns who make the so-called "Garnet" and "Ruby " papers. We believe the original makers of the Garnet paper were H. H. Barton & Son, and of the Ruby paper, Herman Behr & Co. The Behr Ruby Paper is considered especially desirable on shoe work. Garnet paper is considerably higher in price than Sand, or Flint Paper, but it is claimed will do from two to three times as much work, and judging from the fact that the leading woodworking establishments in the country buy it in large quantities, and the demand is constantly Increasing, we are Inclined to believe the claims made for it are well substantiated. In this connection, it would be well to bear in mind that the cost in time —which means money —of changing, or renewing, the paper on Sanding Machines is apt to be more than the cost of the paper itself; and that a large portion of this expense is saved In using a paper that will do twice the work
