Contains nearly 100 full-page engrav.

by the world's greatest paintrs.
True copies of the greatest Master
pieces in the art galleries of Europe.
Every picture is as beautiful as a
sunrise over the hilltops. Contains
description of the paintings, biogra.,
phy of the painters, the names and
locations of the galleries in Europe
where the originals may be seen.
Also contains a Child's Department,
including a Child's Story of the Christ
and His Mother, beautifully written,
to tit each picture. This wonderful
book, matchless in its purity and
beauty, appeals to every mother's
heart, and in every Christian home
where there are children the book
sells itself. Christian men and
women are making money rapidly
taking crders. A Christiau man or
woman can in this community soon
make $1,000 taking orders for
Christmas presents. Mrs. Waite, our

$3,000 worth of the books to a very
short time. Mrs. Sackett. our agent

worth of the boks in a very short
time. The hxook is printed on velvet
fluistned, paper, beautifully bound in
'ardinal lied and gold, and adorned
with G ,iden Roses and Lilies. It is,
without doubt, the most beautiful
book of this century. Write for
