Nothing is complete without the fiiisb
ing touches. This is particularly true of
art. No work of art is finished until it
is properly set off. It is jut as essential
to a fine picture that it have a good
frame as that it be submitted to tbe pro
per process in the artist's studio. No one
realises more tbe desirability of having a
picture displayed to advantage than an
artist. This is tbe reason that J. C. Ras
mussen, tbe leading tri-cily photographer,
is at all times properly and fully equipped
to supply the finishing touches in accord
ance with tbe best taste and skill. He
has always on band an abundance of ma
terial for framing pictures, artistically
and handsomely and with good eC. ct.
He has an endless variety of d signs
