im, Belthasar and Servant: The Desolate
Home ot Kur: Ben Hur Telling the Story
of the Nazarene; The Lepers Healed; Ben
tiur and Esther; and the Home of Hur.
Beside these here was an opening vocal

Napoleon Til and the I'ainter Couture.
The favorite painter of the Third Knipire
was WinterhalteET, as Delaroche had been
of the Orleans family. However, an order
was given to Couture for a large picture
representing the baptism of the little
prince imperial. He- went to work with
great ardor, making sketches and prepar
ing a va-t composition. In the course of
the work lie had to have sittings from the
various members of the imperial family
and their Immediate followers. If a por
trait painter, when his sitters are ordinary
mortals, has nearly always to undergo
many unpleasant seems, it is easy to judge
how his temper is tried and his nerves un
strung when those tritters are princes or
It is likely that in Cmiture's case the sit

painter or to his model-. Napoleon II,
Wished to direct his artist, and of .ill art

Finally one day, goaded beyond endurance,

who is to paint this picture your majesty,
or I? Ami neither painted it. I ho em

on the painter, and his courtiers turned
theirs also. I'he order was not maintained,

Dangerous things look safe, and safe

The Knglish traveler was oemsiilerably

scanned the vessel with his glass. The

COMPARISON Tells the Tale.
The proper, most satisfactory and convincing way to form a
correct conclusion as to value is by comparison, It is im
possible to judge from newspaper quotations. For this rea
son we ask you to COMPARE our line of $4.35 Mens Suits
others advertise at $4.45; our line of $5.00 Men's Suits with
those others advertise at $7.50; our line of $6.50 Mens Suits
with those others advertise at $10.00; our line of $9.90 Men s
Suits with those others advertise at $13.50. COMPARISON
TELLS THE TALE.
If the quality, fit, workmanship and trimming is not better and the price lower than that of any
other dealer, don't buy. All we ask that you compare-nothing can be fairer.
