"All riht, I'll take your bet and

possible to purchase in Venice tho

Whistler obtained his effects.
The American would not let him
slip through in that way, so he man

pieces from Whistler's own pastel
boxes, lie select -d all he wanted
or thought he needed for the easy
task of nuking a W'histk-r pastel

he would ho ready for the jury in
a week.
How or by whom the six jurors
were selected I do not know, but I
rememlier that two' strangers, an
Austrian and a Dutchman, were
among them. Spain was represent
ed bv Martin Rico, Kngland by Hen
ry Woods, li. A., and America by
i'rank Duveneck and myself. By
this time Whistler knew the wager.
The jury met in a house on the Kiva
not far from the Casa Jankovitx,
near enough for him tfl bring his
the meeting
was a verv long room iaeing me
I'ions. The American who hail
accepted the wager wan not there.
Wolkoff was at home, sick in bed.
Whistler was in tho darkest and
farthest corner, with his back to
the company and his pastels on a
lonir table. I was selected to bring
each exhibit from W histler' hands
and place it on a high backed chair.
It was an extraordinary position
in which Whistler was placed and a
veritable ordeal which he faced. He
was serious and woro a troubled
look, tho truth being that he was
nervous at the possibility that the
jury might let one of the Hasian'
pastels slip by as one of his own. I
am glad to say, however, that when
ever a Wolkoff apeared it waa in
stantly received with groans and
shouts of "Take it away!" Not for
one moment was there the least
doubt or a dissenting voice. OtU

pportwnity
it is said, knocks once at every man's door. And
now you have another demonstration of the truth of
this old saying. Only one look will convince the most
skeptical that this is his, and probably the best, op
portuny that ever jingled the bell on the entrance to
the structure in which he makes his habitation.
We bought out the stock of harness and shoes of Mr
Osborne, but wishing to convert this modern store
into a handsome Dry Goods Emporium, we are go
ing to let these goods go to your good. Throw away
that old patched up harness and show your appreci
ation of the services of your faithful horse or mule
by buying him a new outfit. Harness, bridles, col
lar pads, hames, collars, backhands, whips, etc., all
to go at or below wholesale cost without the freight.
If you need a pair of shoes here is the place to pro
cure them at a price within easy reach of the most
modest pocket book. The goods are all new stock.
