The utmost care was exercis ed in the.seleetion of this stock and it is offered for your inspection with a knowledge that only the Best is in cluded. OUR DISPLAY OF BRASS "ART BEDS" is excep tionally worthy of notice. Beside being the most beau tiful. Brass "Art Beds'' are by far the strongest, most durable, yet lightest, on the market. Not a single screw, bolt or nut is used in their entire construction, and yet when finished, every Brass "Art Bed" is as if made of one solid piece of metal. When one recalls a few of the troubles experienced with the old style constructed beds, it is easy to understand the many advantages of "Art Bed" construction. And then too, they cost no more than the others. BRASS "AHT HE I)" XO. S2!H Two inch posts, 1 1 2 inch cress tubes, 1 -3 inch fillers, head 53 inches high, foot "0 inches, ball bearing carter-.
