Frederick; tho Great, king of Fruit la, this

too, but thara waa one difficulty Pat could
not speak a word of German, and tho king
had always Insisted that his men must
know that language.
The recruiting sergeant, having got hla
man to unllst without much trouble, saw
a way out.
"i'at." said he, "hla majesty will ask
you three questions In German, and you
will answer In German. 1 will teach you
tbe words, and you must get them right."
"He will say to you, 'How old are you'
You will reply, '27 years. Then he will
ak, 'How long have you fcwen In tho army?'
You will renpflrol. 'Three weeks,' and then
he will say, 'Are you satisfied with your

Philadelphia, Pa. Victims of eye strain
and other eye weaknesses, and those who
wear glasses, will be glad to know that, ac
cording to lr, Lewis, there ts real hope and
help for them. Uany whose eyes were fall
ing say they have had their eyes restored
by this remarkable prescription and many
who once wore glasses say thay have thrown
them away. One man aays, after using It:
"I waa almost blind. Could not see tn read
at all. Now I can read everything without
my glasses and my eye do not hurt any
mora. At night they would pain dreadfully.
Now they, teel fine all the time. It was like
a miracle to me," A lady who used It says:
"The atmosphere; seemed haay with or with
out glasses, but after using this prescription
for fifteen daya everything seems clear. I
can read even fine print without glasses."
Another who used It says: "I was bothered
with eye strain caused by overworked, tired
eyes which Induced fierce headaches. I have
worn giaasea for several years both for dls
tance and work, and without them I could
not read my own name on an envelope or
tha typewriting on the machine before me. I
can do both now and havu discarded my

tha fluttering leaves on the trees across the
street now, which for several yeara have

glasses can now discard them In a reason

to strengthen their eyes so aa to b-apartd

Wonderful Chinese Rugs
That Rival the Choice Products of the Orient
jTtHE charm of the wonderful color schemes and unusual designs decides their superiority
J. over many oriental types. The fine soft yarns from which the rugs are woven insures their lay

hangings than as floor coverings. The designs are raised and so clearly defined that they ap
pear to be "carved" upon the ground of the rug.
From a Collection Valued at More Than $20,000, We Con
sider the following Examples Worthy of Especial Mention
10 feet 1 inch by 13 feet 2 inches. Rug has old blue ground of
wonderful depth; carved upon it are butterflies and foliage and
typical of many others in the exhibit, it has an urn of strange shape
very Chinese but very beautiful; border is of cream and old
rose. Price $525.00
8 feet by 10 feet Rug. Center ground is of rich Pekin Poppy color
with black blue and gold border; the design is worked out over the
center in medallions and bright colored flowers of China. The
A smaller slie, 6 feet by 8 feet, partakes of the Tapestry order, in
that It will serve as a hanging as well as a rug. A forest scene is
cleverly depicted with all the unvarnished simplicity of medieval
times a monkey up a tree a donkey, birds, butterflies, spiders.
A beautiful creation for the living room is worked out with a deep
and rich gold ground upon which is projected a leaf pattern in im
perial Chinese blue. The size is 8-9x12. Price $475.00
In the collection are a number of very beautiful small creations,
priced, at $10.00. $20.00. $25.00 and $40.00
These rugs are different in every way, even to the odd sizes
(being measured by the Chinese meter), different from any other
kind of rug, yet, perhaps, more adapted to our homes and color
schemes than any other type of rug. Come and see them.
All lovers of fine and unusual Rugs should see the
