THE youth hesitates, hand on glass. Will he obey the imperious look of command in the eyes of the beautiful Lucreziaof Cæsar Borgia and partake of the proffered cup? Or will he be warned before it is too late by the sinister glance shot from the cruel eyes of the old Pontiff as he coldly calculates the destruction of the young gallani.
To comply or refuse is equally hazardous. If he decline the poisoned draught, will he escape the knife of the hired assassin even now lurking in the shadows of the papal palace ?
Rodrigo Borgia (Alexander VI), Lucrezia and Cæsar formed the diabolical trinity which sat for eleven years upon the papal throne in Rome, an impious parody of the Holy Trinity-the most perfect incarnation of evil that ever existed on earth. How many gallant lives thus darkly and without commotion passed out of sight, whirled away by the headlong torrent of the ambition of that terrible triumvirate, is told as only that great weaver of word pictures, Alexandre Dumas, could tell in

A new store-but the old spirit of sincere service and friendly cooperation that has endeared McCutcheon's to four generations of shoppers will be there. The old, uncompromising supreme quality which has made McCutcheon's famous as “The Greatest Treasure House of Linens in America,” will be there as well. And, as always, prices will be as moderate as is compatible with the McCutcheon standard of merchandise.
These are all McCutcheon traditions. They shall be maintained as unfalteringly in the future as they have been for the past seventy years.
Cordially McCutcheon's invites you to inspect its new quarters. On October 15th, and thereafter as long as you please, McCutcheon's is “at home” to its friends.
