married and brought his wife home
with him. They were married in
Omaha on Wednesday of last week,

DRESSING the walls is one o f tl
arts of today. More money is being
put into it by the average family
than, say for pictures or other v.all deco
lr.tion. From the mere covering of an
I -nightly wall surface, it has grown to
the dignity of a decorative art.
Can there be any surprise, therefore,
in the fact that the public is evincing a
greater interest in better wall decoration?
