The time to see the beautiful Christmas goods
J is before Christmas throngs become impassible.
WfiLjCan I Get
In a Picture
For a small 'sym? We never saw such
good things at .such little prices. Some
of the cheapest arc really the most art
istic. , At SOc-Vyhink you will pronounce
these the gr&test bargain in a picture
you ever saw. Our first order for 100 was
closed out at once. A new shipment con
tains 16 different subjects, most of them
in dainty colored landscapes. They are
15J4 by IV inches in neat gilt frames
with glass at Only 50c.
Anyone who has had pictures framed
to order will wonder how these can cost
so little. .
At 30c to $1.50 These are carbons,
richly colored -prints, two-toned poster
effects etc. .They include as subjects,
brilliant skies, soft waters, homely work
ing scenes, Dutch babies, Oriental fig
ures, Venetian scenes, monks, animals,
etc. These are framed in deep brown
woodeii frames, plain or combined with
At $1.60 Pretty Dutch children, hand
colored and framed in black windmills;
that is, the fans of the mill form the top,
and the body of the mill its sides.
