THERE WAS ONLY ONE
TITIAN IN THE WORLD
Titian, or Tiziano Vecellio. was!
one of the greatest painters of the
world. In 1532 he painted in Bologna
a portrait of the emperor Charles V. (
and was created a count palatine
and knight of the Golden Spur, his
children also being made nobles of
the empire for a painter, honors of
an unexampled kind. Criticized be-j
ranse he ennobled Titian. Charles V.
looking the protesting princes square
in the eye. replied: "I know a great
number of princes and kings, but I.
believe there is onl- one Titian in
the whple world." And today many
people in the United States and
Canada say: "We know a great num
ber of remedies for stomach troubles,'
but we believe there is only one
which may be relied upon Triner's
Bitter Wine." For instance, Mr.
Frank A. Novak wrote us on May 15
from Brooks, Oregon: "Triner's Bit
ter Wine is surely a good remedy.
I have been sick for seven months,
but now, after taking Triner's Bit
ter Wine. I am feeling much better."
Therefore, when coming to your
druggist or dealer in medicines, in
sist upon Triner's. '
