THE PITTSBURGH SUNDAY POST, MAY 20, 1917. SECOND SECTION PAGE THREE Mie WW. EDISON XV III Century English ? (MAHOGANY) Designed and Executed by Messrs. FRENCH & Co. jj gg ' ' il 5 I i' 6 i E IT is difficult to give an exact style name to this cabinet. All through the latter half of the XVIII Century there was a considerable amount of finely hand-painted decorations done on furniture. Amongst some the great artists associated with this work are the well-known names of Pergolesi and Angelica Kaufmann. This painted work was probably done more often on satinwood or enamel, but there are instances of it being executed on mahogany with beautiful effect. This special XVIII Century cabinet shows an example of the latter type of furniture. The grilles are cut out, and on the wood formations thus left are finely executed motifs of fruits, flowers,' etc. The door panels are painted with Italian decorations usual with this class of work.

War Conferences In Final Stages WASHINGTON, May 19. It was disclosed by a high authority today that conferences between the British mission and this Government have reached their final stages without a disagreement of the slightest character and without any obstacle being met with which was not overcome in a manner happily agreeable to all concerned. Contrary to popular belief the initiative was taken in every subject advanced by the representative? of the United States, the British representatives, it being declared, never volunteering anything except when asked. It was learned also that for the present at least, the war legis- j lative program has been completed. except where measures before Con- ress have not been passed. The administration, it was said, has no ; additional bills to be introduced and it will ask no further general legis-'ation unless necessity arises through the meeting of new problems.

Loftis Bros. & Co., tit Liberty. Visions of the restoration of Pittsburgh's famous "Black Horse Squadron" were entertained by certain police veterans last night when Superintendent Edward Ward of the bureau of horses, and City Veterinarian H. Weit-zel, left for Kansas City, Mo., to pass upon 10 horses that have been selected for the police bureau. Advices from the western city that the required number of horses meeting the Pittsburgh specifications for pure blacks har been secured, reached Pittsburgh a day or two ago, and the city representatives started preparations at once to inspect the animals. The specifications are so stringent that only the largest horse markets can attempt to fill them. Pure blacks of a certain height and weight only can qualify, and it was impossible to fill the order east of Kansas City. If found to meet requirements the 10 horses will be shipped immediately to Pittsburgh. The contract price per horse is $237.50 to which is to be added shipping charges. The city, has been asked $300 for blacks meeting the specifications in the local markets and no guarantee of the number to be delivered was tendered. The 10 horse which will be put into the mounted police service will be the first addition to the "Black Horse Squadron" since council two years ago declared the famous troop should be reduced from 36 to 12. When the 4 horses were sold there was no limit to sentimental expression at the parting of the trained animals and their masters who had been returned to foot work again. While the new horses will not mean restoration of the "Black Horse Squadron" to its original proportion, city executives consider it a step in the right direction and that the standards raised when the organization was at full strength are again receiving proper recognition. A number of the horses will be necessary to replace animals worn out by the mounted service. Captain Ball Held In German Prison LONDON. May 19.

Ordinary mercolized wax, applied nichtly like cold cream and erased mornings with warm water, gradually absorbs the coarse, faded or discolored outer film skin in almost invisible particles. Soon there's a brand new complexion, formed by the younger, healthier under-skin. No cosmetic or artificial treatment can possibly produce a complexion of such rfuliant. youthful loveliness. Druggists all have "mercolized wax; it i3 seldom that mnrr than one ounce is necessary. Thousands have also reported great success with the famous saxolite wrinkle-removing formula. One ounce of pure powdered saxolite is dissolved in a half-pint witch hazel and the solution used as a face wash. The effect is almost magical.
