ished cattle that have entered the
stock markets of South Omaha for
some time and which brought him

DRESSING the walls is one of the
arts of today. More money is being
put into it by the average family
than, say for pictures or other wall deco
ration. From the mere covering of an
unsightly 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?
And having helped to lift wall deco
ration to its proper place in home beau
tification, we feel this concerns the in
terest of every home owner who feels
justly satisfied with only the best in home
