These days, as it happens, sum up the History of their Five Centuries.

Christmas Day, 496. Clovis baptized.
" " 800. Charlemagne crowned.
" " 1041. Vow of the Count of Aversa (Page 80).
" " 1066. The Conqueror crowned.
" " 1130. Roger II. crowned King of the Two Sicilies.

2. For conclusion of the whole matter two pictures were shown and
commented on - the two most perfect pictures in the world.

(1) A small piece from Tintoret's Paradiso in the Ducal Palace,
representing the group of St. Ambrose, St. Jerome, St. Gregory, St.
Augustine, and behind St. Augustine his mother watching him, her chief
joy even in Paradise.

(2) The Arundel Society's reproduction of the Altar-piece by Giorgione
in his native hamlet of Castel Franco. The Arundel Society has done
more for us than we have any notion of.

"Mr. Platt has worked out an idea so striking for its attractiveness
and utility that, perceiving it, we at once go to work wondering that
somebody else had not executed it before him. He has gone over the
vast and superb areas of John Ruskin's Writings, and cutting out one
block here and another there, as it has suited his purpose, has put
all these parts together again into a literary mosaic, constituting a
clear and harmonious system of art principles, wherein Ruskin all the
while is the teacher. He has reduced Ruskin to a code. On the whole,
we see not what this book lacks of being a complete text-book of the
Gospel of Art according to St. John Ruskin." - _Christian Union_.
