Drawings given to gallery OTTAWA In the late 1700s you couldn't buy comic books at the corner news ven- dor for your private amuse- but if you were wealthy enough you could purchase an album of original drawings by a famous artist. Such was probably the origin of one of the rare drawings by the great Italian artist Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo which has been given to the National Gallery of Canada by the Bronfman family of Montreal. Showing an episode in the legendary life of the puppet of the Italian Commedia the drawing is only one of 10 in the Bronfman gift by Tiepolo and his Giovanni Battista who died in Venice in 1770. The younger artist died there in 1804. Mary Cazort curator of drawings at the National says the 10 Tiepolo drawings alone would constitute a magnificent addition to. the gallery's permanent collection. But they are only 10 out of 27 old European master drawings recently donated by the Bronf- mans. Punchinello Visits a Circus is the 38th of a series of 104 drawings by the younger Tiepolo which were originally bound in an album for some wealthy patron. fire stone STORES Corner 3rd Aw. and 8th St. Phone 327-8548 USE OUR fires tone CREDIT PLAN OR fmt SALE ENDS MAY 25th ON TAKE- AND USED VA UKE OFFS HOME-0-6RAPH HOME PLANNING SERVICE 40 Jarvli Ontario MSC 2H1 G I enclose 25 cents handling lor Designs lor BOOK 1.

What sends him out into the night looking for a hardware store that is open late is a lack of proper supplies. You can't stock everything in your of but in time and with a little experience you will have on hand the right the right washer and just the nail you need for those minor repairs that come up at odd moments. Consider the kinds of jobs that occur and what you need. Make a note of proper sizes for next time and stock up in advance. PLUMBING The first time around you will probably buy an assortment of washers in a small box. This gives you one or two of everything including a few sizes you will never use.
