(Flrtt floor, Dentral) TO SAY that this is a furniture stock without a rival in this vicinity is to give it very faint praise indeed.

Another with a higher back and loose cushions has a coveting of needlework chaimingly wrought with a fieely running design of gay birds on a ground of beautiful yellow. Tho lower frame of the florid Jacobean type is finished in antique silver, the wood showing through its worn surface. The third sofa, much simpler, is of tho late Georgian style. It is longer than the otheis, with a pretty leminisccncc of our own Colonial in its curves, and tho covering is of a creamy chintz with crewel embroideiy copied from certain bedspreads and hangings in tho Victoria and Albeit Museum in Kensington. It should bo added that, being perfectly piopoitioncd, all theso sofas are extraordinarily comfortable to sit on!
