TRUTH BEATS FICTION TO IT
j How a Norellst Bumped Aaalust
One of His Creations lu
' Real Life.
Frederic 8. liham, the novelist, suys ho
la willing to give the banner to truth
over fiction every time when it comes
to strange and unusual things. He il
lustrates his point with this example:
"Last year I wrote a novel called The
Social Buccaneer.' My hero wan a young
fellow of English parentage, who had
been born and raised in China. He spoke
' several of the Chinese dialects, belonged
to their secret societies, mlngli-d with
them freely and had them for allies, in
' fact, be was thoroughly Chinese In all
' his Instincts.
"He came to America, lived modestly,
,but seemed to have unlimited means,
7 which he spent mostly on charity. The
fact of the matter was that a queer so
I ciallsllc Idea, which he had picked up
j from an old Chinese river pirate,
prompted him to prey upon his wealthy
friends, cunningly stealing everything of
lvalue he could lay his hands on, and
. then distributing his ill-gotten wealth to
! those who were really needy.
r ihnnviii that aurelv a strange 'vouiic
man of this sort could e no other than
a creature of the imagination, yet no
kooner was my book on the market than
up comes a reader with the Information
that he had known In real life a man
very similar to my hero.

Oriental lings Specially Priced for Christmas
.1 . !
lo convey me irue senu-
ment of Christmas no gift will
be more potent than an Orien
tal !ru with its great depth, en
trancing beauty and artistic de
sign. This store has made spe
cial concessions on its large
stock of high grade Oriental
rugs for the Christmas shopping
period. These rugs have ex-,
cellent color contrasts, beauti
ful Oriental figures and are
finely woven of good worsted.
. They were selected with their
artistic and intrinsic values in
mind. They are splendid val
ues and the introduction of
them in the scheme of home
decoration will be marvelously
productive of beautiful results.
The stock of Orientals here is
very extensive and the variety
is such that anyone can find
just the sort of Oriental that is
desired. The size range is great.
We have cut the prices way
down (as a glance at the figures
below will show) and we chal
lenge comparison for quality
and prices. The bargain char
acter and the rich, deep quality
of these Orientals recommend
them to every one wishing to make a present for Christmas that will combine practical use
fulness with beauty and artistic design. The standard is very high and the prices very low.
