The accompanying cut give a very good idea of one of the most interesting novelties connected to the World's Fair at Chicago. It is called the Columbian match safe, and there is nothing more appropriate so far for the trade to handle or sell, both before and during the Columbian Exposition of 1893. The likeness is an exact reproduction in silver of the celebrated statue of Columbus at the entrance of Central Park, New York. G.M. Thurnauer, 33, Park place, is the owner of the "safe" and orders should be placed as soon as possible. As a souvenir of a great event it will command a ready sale everywhere.
