Annual Art Exhibition.
The Twelfth Annual Art Exhibition
of the Nebraska Art Association will
open December 26f 1905, and close Jan
uary 13, 1906. A large' .part of tho pic
tures have been selected, from the Art
Exhibition at the Chicago Art Inatl
tute, which is a' sufficient guarantee of
tho high excellence of the exhibition.
The reat of the pictures will be dare
fully selected by Mlsa Cora Parker
from the best New York, Philadelphia,
and Boston artists. It is doubtful
