A Yard of Hoses.
One ot the popular paintings at the
New York Academy of Design was a
yard long panel of roses. A crowd was
always before it. One art critic ox
claimed, "Such a bit of nature should
belong to all the people, it is too beauti
ful fur one man to hide away."
The Youth's Companion, of Boston,
seiuod tbu idea, and spent twenty thous
and dollars to reproduce the painting,
The result has been a triumph of artistic
delicacy and color. .
The Companion makes an autumn
gift of this copy of the painting to each
