Mrridia St. Cr7, (') 'A i I 77 Pictured at $5.00 You have certainly heard of Pyrex, even if you haven't used it. Pyrex U a kind of cooking utensil made of glass. It holds heat longer than any metal and is so attractive in appearance that food cooked in it may be served from the same dishes. The shock of sudden changes of heat or cold seem to have absolutely no effect on it. AVe have never knowtf a piece to break from thi3 cause. The 12 - pieco set. of Pyrex pictured is a special holiday grouping designed Little Stories of Daily Life Some Strategy No, Rategy. "Really," said the younff man aa h leaned over the cirar counter at the cor ner drug: store, "I can scarcely hope that any one will bellere this story. I will Just tell It and let It go at tbat. My wife the other day bought a dozen eggs no that Is not the most ,1m probable part of ' the story yes. she bought a dozen egs and hung them up In a basket In the cellar some distance from the - floor above. Hearing a noise in the cellar she was afraid to go down stairs, t tiptoed my way half a doaen steps down and there I saw a fine piece of strategy I mean rategy aa one could wish. "Three rats in a string, the top one on the cellar wall the lowest one in the basket, were passing the eggs from one to another. I made a little noise and the rats pulling themselves tip to the top of the wifil disappeared. "Eleven of the twelve eggs had been takem from the basket. There theywere all In a row on the top of the walL "I went upstairs to call my wife to show her those eleven eggs. I wasn't gone more than five minutes. When she came down the cellar steps with me and I was pointing to the top of the wall well, the eggs were gone. Then I looked into the basket for the twelfth egg. It. too, was' gone! An even dozen, at' - 4S cents! "No, I don't expect you to believe it I Just tell the story. Maybe you'll even doubt the price of the egs."

"I'm from a little town, and nobody ever.held me up there. But I got a right good start In new sensations here. Just as I passed the alley some fellow threw his arms around my arms and' held me.

I J - : ART INSTITUTE ATTRACTIONS The exhibition of paintings, drawings and sculptures by Swedish artists from the Panama - Pacific exposition now beinjr shown at the John Ilerron Art Institute, is attracting - the number of visitors that this rait her sensational attraction deserves. The collection will remain on view through New Tear's day and will then be sent to the Toledo Art Museum before it Is returned to its, home port. The opening reception to the members of the Art Association for the annual exhibition Is announced for Friday evening, January 5. 1 ' " Tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 T. C. Steele will Rive an informal talk on the Swedish exhibition in the galleries where It is on disT'lay. ; An additional exhibit bf Importance is a rrllpftion nf American Indian reliuues. which are arranged in the lower eaft gal - l lery, lent by M. L. Andrews, of Bryant, Mo,, through' the oinces: of tne sr vouis museum. :, The Swedish exhibltlpn has been viewed bv thousands of people during its Itinerary to the leading museums over the country, as arranged by W. II. Fox, of the .Brooklyn Museum, through the Swedish commissioner. The various subjects, including vast snow covered fields, raow covered forests, snow Covered cliffs at the coast, and the winter sports pictures, illustrate the near - arctic life Of the Swedish people. Several pictures, particularly those by Anshelm Schultzberg, give the light and color to the landscape peculiar to the twilight eilect of the Swedish summer night. BJq sirld Stirring ' - Effects. Anno j Eoberg, gives, perhaps better the others, save Oscar Ilullgren. the overpowering and relentless forces of the sky, mountain crags and deep moving sea.1 a tremendous feeling and deep understanding of the typography of r the country,, a splfitual interpretation" of the bigness of the Creator and the temerity iof man. with his boats on the seas and his houses tarlir nnivw1 under in their tinv ihar bors, give us the sensational element for Which we look in this fascinating nijrth - land. ' Our American artists succeed in painting winter landscape, with bare trees, ice swollen rivers and a general feeling of chill in the air. but whep it comes to vast stretches of snow, or the study of surface "quality" on drifts and the subtle chance in color values' on the windblown rifts, they have t taloe off their hats to their Swedish confreres. Thev secure their effects with various methods and the varying technique adds an element of interestjand shows an independence that we admire, if we do not always approve. - Sehulzberg is direct and Is most easily understood, while Fjaestad (pronounced Fee - ay - stad), with his stippled effects, to give distance, mystery and vibrating atmosphere., . is mo're difficult to comprehend. ' Fjaestad, if somewhat, finical, is very; lmrressive with his vast' spaces, such as in bis moonlieht effects, particularly No. K oiled Meditation," .where the lone human figure seems to be standing on the "edse of. the universe." with only a few snow - covered rina trees to keep him company. ' Gustav Torsander also used .at stippled effect in technique, but with a more simplified "poster style" of arrangement In composition. I Masses of Drifted Snow. Erik Iledberg Is fascinated with masses of drifted snow, piled high over barns and fences, and succeeds in, interesting the observer with a very "simple motif with a single spot of color, as of some barn or other object emerging. .from the masse of white and gray snow. The list of figure painters is, of course, headed by Anders Zorn, great painter and marvelous euher. Only ono painting, and that not entirely representative of . this master, i ; sent, but wo are glad to have his "Delecarlian Girl in Winter Costume,", beautiful in Its directness of handling, if not as colorful as we might expect. Elsa liaeklund - Celsing's two full length portraits . of a girl tobogganing and a young man skiing are excellent pieces of worlt. Her sincerity of purpose Is evident and her. fhterest in the national sport and her artistic perception are not idealt w,ith j lightly, as might have been . tne case with some . artists in representing the fieetness of action. 'A subtle piece of artistry in the matter of arrangement is evinced in the "Boy Skiing." To avoid the rather feeling - that the figure is skating out of , the corner of the picture as bo leans forward, and down in tho pport, the artist has given his head an erect pose with eyes i looking far ahead "on the horizontal." thus preserving a sense of balaince and stability. Several - "very good portrait studies have previously been mentioned, such as Anna Wrangel's portrait of an old man with an earthen water. Jug. and Mas - Ollc's Delecarlian peasant type of an old man. with long silvery hair. The same artist has a profoundly interesting study of Rector Her.rik Schuck. in which a reflected light of bright green illumines the contour of 'the face and figure in a re - , markably true registry of tone. An Interesting Portrait Emll Osterman's portrait of Frofessor Carl Curman deserves greater praise than given at first notice, when the picture was seen under less favorable lighting. The three - quarter view of the head facing the llsrht affords an Interesting study in the shadows that nwdel the likeness of 'this rugged type of Scandanaviait echol ar. It is always interesting to see how an artist paints - the rather uninteresting wearing apparel of a man and in this instance the artist has succeeded, defining the lines of the figure underneath the folds of cloth without the cloth seeming to be made of armor plate, ai is so often the - case with bsRHant technicians. Antony tho more lowly types, Wilhelm Smith's "Plshcrfolk" Is an interesting bit of revelation' of color In the out - of - doors. The juxtaposition of bright violet, blue,' green and orange of their costumes and thn 'brilliancy' of the white fish in the net attracts the observer. Another good picture by Wllhelra Krrlth "ts his "Winter Afternoon." picturing the front door - yard of a house, but several others of his work seem confused and "wooly" in. effect. Gabriel Strandberg shows a number of bl.s low types of the city slums that are UKly In nentiment. His "Cripple" is his bo."t work, a sincere piece of rendition of character Krnst KusaI Is an animal painter of ability, but his study of ducks is perhaps his best work. Urunn Llljefors pronounced LU - ye - fors), the great painter of bird life, has sent only one picture, a very large canvas, representing two eagles with their prev, a white fowl. The decorative painting of Carl .ars - son, so popular With the Swedish people thems - elves, have already been noticed. The Imaginative drawings of John Rauer and illustrations by Klg:strom with their unusual power of execution, have already been noticed at lenpth as well as a number of other praphie artists Including Sicce Rerestrom.' Ferdinand Poberg, Johansscn - Thor and. Carl Peterson. Additional Sculptures. Since' the first notice of the Swedish exhibition in these columns additional sculptures have been installed.

Her "'Rusv Little Girl." working away at sew mg is delightful. The Little Crirpla Foy" "is an ir - .t cresting i - iece of work. Her "loune I'easant.
