reproduced his melancholy lineaments
on canvas with such fidelity as to
bilng tears to tho eyes of those who
claim friendship for tho dog "Alira

a portrait Is considered somewhat un
usual, Inasmuch as only a few weeks
ago ho apparontly displayed a con
tempt for art by stalking into Gur-
roy's and howling dismally when con
fronted by Torroy's famous picture of
ho rough riding big stick wicldcr who

''Al3alom" has had his portrait limned

drawbacks, for ho has acquired n
