How to Enjoy Pictures
Mrs. Henry Head's book, "How to En
Joy Pictures" (Frederick A. Stokes Com
pany, New York), Is written for chll-
Kdren, and will be found very entertaining
for grown-ups. It should help decide the
question whether tho child's tnsto shall
ffc degenerate Into the average acceptance of
pictures as unimportant playthings or
ft whether he shall be encouraged to appre
ciate iur nimEcu uie dcsl in arc.
The book Is beautifully Illustrated.
There are 34 colored plates of famous plc-
Vtures that arouso Interest at once. Italy
' and her painters, early Flemish painters.
!f,Man van Eyck and Hans Hemllng; tho
I' German, Albrecht Durer nnd Holbein:
later Flemish artists, Rubens and Van
Dick: Dutch, Frans Hals. Rembrandt and
.Pleter de Hooch: Spanish. El Greco.
'Velasquez and Goya; French, Clouet,
,watteau and Chardln, and the English
..acaool from Hogarth to Morland, Includ
ing a little group of lata Italian painters,
are all covered In a manner that la a Joy
for even the connoisseur.
The reader Is led through many ages
of painters, with many varying styles, nil
so attractively treated that tho book Is
cast aside only with recret. The render
'U taught never to forget to love beauty
ana truth, and to train hlmsolf with all
I, diligence to appreciate them. Tho re-

A Sonnet Sequence
Ever slnco George Meredith wroto his

many have been publlahedj not many
were as deserving of publication as tho

Arthur Davison Flcke, which Mitchell
Kenncrley has Just brought out.

It won't make Oriental rugs more plentiful for any storekeeper to '
sit down and groan about their scarcity. On the other hand, one must
look facts in the face, and it is a fact well known in the trade that there
are now very few small Oriental rugs to be had and that their wholesale
prices have risen 25 to 50 per cent, within some months.
In all such crises it is the store that has at all times the largest and
quickest outlet that gets whatever worthwhile goods are going. Certainly
we get them in this instance, and we will sell rugs at unrisen prices while
we can get them to special advantage.
We have secured
76 Large New Boxes of Mossouls, Beluchistans,
Hall Strips and Anatolian Mats
for which we made a special forehanded contract with the New York
representative of an Eastern firm. The goods were held up in London
for a time, but today they are at your disposal priced on the old, low,
unrisen basis and guaranteed in every detail as to quality.
In the same purchase are a number of fine carpet size
Kermanshahs, Serapis, Mahals and Persian silk pieces, including several
fine antiques. These we shall sell for less than many stores have now to
pay for them at wholesale.
Such are the facts and here are the particulars:
Beluchistans, 2x5, $15; 3x5.6, $19.50;
Mossouls and Guendjes, 3x6, $15.75.
