Cape Mat, N. J.. July 20,-Cape May has
had a pleasant -week and many people have
visited this old resort The rains the early part
of the week tended to keep some away, but the
fine weather that succeeded care visitors a
I chanceto view the beauties of the shore. , Dur
ing Saturday, Sunday and Monday the most
people flock to this place. They leave business
lor the week and run down for a breath of sea
air. Those who can afford to leave their busi
'" nnss arn mosilv Philadelohians. On Saturday
nights Capo May resumes th5 old appearances
of gayeties. All the hotels have their ball
rooms thrown wide open to the merry dancers,
whose happy voices are lost in tho orchestra's
strains. Tho Pier Is becoming more than ever
a, haven for the seekers after comic and light
opera. The auditorium is filled, and the per
formers seem to realize that a new life is dawn
ing upon thom. Saturday, taken altogether, is
the biggest and liveliest day at tho resort.
At the bathing hour there is much life, but
to-day there is not near so many bathers as
there were ten years ago. The fashion seems
to te going out, or it seems to be an idea not to
b&the every day, but once or twice a week. In
former times a bath was taken daily. There
is no better time and place to study human
nature than the surf during this hour, which
is at itsbest between 12 and 1 o'clock, during
whicbperiod the disinterested onlooker is often
- treated to a series of surprises and given ma
terial for meditation.
THE ATHLETIC JIEETEJO
which took place on Monday was a success in
every particular, notwithstanding the rain. It
was to have taken place on theprecedlng Sat
urday, but the heavy rainstorm of that after
noon was the cause of the postponement. The
meeting was participated in by athletes from
Harvard, Princeton, Andover, New York Ath
letic Manhattan Athletic Club, Staten Island
Athletic Club, and several other associations of
less note. The prizes were handsome silver
cups. It was the third annual field meeting of
tho Cape May City Athletic Club. The sports
were witnessed by manypeoplo from Pittsburg.
The Committee of Correction of State Chan
ties, appointed by the last session of the Penn
sylvania Legislature, have been holding meet
ings here all the week. Tho matter Is a deep
one. and it is going to take a great deal of time
to determine, as they intend doing, how the
United States Government, the several States
and foreign countries disburse their moneys to
charitable institutions in the best way. Tho
committee meets daily at the Stockton Hotel,
and in the evening generally have a good time.
The'men who make up the committee are Sen
ators McAlcer, Itejburn, Clay, Mylan, Deardon
and Graham. Of one member a great deal can
be said about, and that Is Captain A. A. Clay,
of Elk county. "Captain Clay, In addition to
abilities that qualify him eminently for the po
sition be bolds, is a great lover of the rifle and
gun. and has a record. He is one of the best
amateur shots at ducks in the country.
Adjutant General Hastings was here during
the early part of the eek, where he had coma
from tho Johnstown district, from a field of hard
work. Ho looked careworn, but got some of
that rest he so much needed. He was a sub
ject of much conversation while here, and was
mostly In company with Colonel Krumbhaar.
of Governor Beaver's staff, and Judge Garri
son, of the New Jersey Supremo Court. The
General, when he left Cape May, was to go to
! the camp of the Fourth Regiment, at Slating-
Among the distinguished foreigners here aro
Minister Mutsu and suite. They attract a
great deal of atteation, but are very much
Americanized, and have fallen into the ways of
the average Cape May visitor. The party con
sists of seven persons. Their favorite pastimes
are sailing in the morning, riding In the after
noon, and billiards in the evening. They have
seen about all there is to be seen, including
teveral games of ball, of which they seem to be
fond. The two ladles, the Minister's wife and
daughter, are greatly admired. The party will
spend the entire season here.

rErXCXAI. TZXXGBAM TO THE DISPATCH.,
Chautauqua, N. Y., July 2a Chautauqua
rejoices. Bishop Vincent arrived on Thursday,
and the expressions of pleasure on everyone's
lips would certainly have been gratifying to
him could be have heard them. To a disinter
ested person, the regard in which Bishop Vin
cent is held here is amusing. It is different
from ordinary hero worship. It is characterized
by peculiar loyalty, affection and dependence,
hautalquans could say with the little boy.
If Bishop Vincent says so, it's so if 'taint so."
Another cause of rejoicing is that we have
tree mails a day. The old postoffico is now
Jic most frequented building on the grounds.
It is a shame that a building so useful should
not be more ornamental. It is a low, narrow
building, where every available space. Inside
and out, is used for an advertisement, until the
effect produced is that of a patch
work quilt. But worse than its lack of
beauty Is its lack of safety. A person
with large feet, or one who cannot live without
air.bardly dares venture within its precincts at
mail time. To remain outside, however, is but
little better, because the walk leading to the
oQice is perilously narrow, and one Is continu
ally finding himself in rather uncomfortable
proximity to a tree or post, or uncermoniously
poked with an umbrella, or stepping off the
edge of the platform nd landing on the ground
with undignified rapidity.
Two deaths have recently occurred that affect
Chautauqua that of Mr. Bolly Lewis, the first
proprietor of the Atbeneum, and of Rev. S. M.
Baton, of Franklin, one of the Chautauqua
pioneers. The former, who was known as a
reformed gambler, was fond of saving that
Chautauqua niaae a man of him. Tho latter
was known to all who know much of Chautau-
Sua. He was an enthusiastic member of the
. L. S. C, and took more seats than any other
A student delegation from across the waters
is visiting Chautauqua. Last Sunday evening,
three of their number from the universities of
Dublin, Edinburgh and Cambridge, respect
ively gave brief and interesting addresses.
Ik Marvel" (Donald G. Mitchell) has given
three lectures and Chautauqua raves over him.
His pleasing manner and cental face, framed in
the whitest of hair, has won our hearts. The
sermon Sunday was given by Dr. Brondus, of
Kentucky. He is a delightful speaker, and his
sermon was an earnest talk that could not but
stir the hearts of bis bearers.
The spelling and pronunciation matches were
great fun. and several good concerts have been
given. Mrs. Jennie Hall Wade, of Brooklyn,
the soloist, has a sweet voice and a charming
presence. The Yale College Glee Club has
been with us several days long enough to be
pretty thoroughly tested, and Chautauqua has
docided that the clnb is the finest tuat has
been here since the Yale students were here
four years ago. .
There is quite a strong Yale feeling sn the
grounds thfsyear. George Vincent is a gradu
ate of Yale. Prof. Harper, the President of the
College. Is a Yale professor; Captain SUgg,
who holds as high a position here as the pet
baseball pitcher, as Prof. Harper, Is from
Yale, and there are plenty of Yale students
besides the glee club. What will be the re
sult? Oatmeal must go. Chautauqua has pro
nounced against it. Mrs. Ewing, the teacher
of the cooking school. Chautauqua's gasiro
npmical apostle, accuses it of nearly all the
crimes in the calendar, and that settles its fate.
Mrs. Ewlng has given a series of instructive
lectures on tho general subject of food, and
she is doing good work in her school.
New arrivals from Pittsburg registered at
the hotel are: Mr. R. F. Patterson, Mr.'A: E.
Evans and family and Mr. A. E. Carrier. One

Bathhouse News. '
Captain Jordan, the enterprising and
wideawake owner of the bathing boat below
the Sixth street bridge in the Allegheny
river, has ordered 2,000 pairs of trunks for
the boys and men who so numerously pat
ronize his safe and excellently arranged
baths. No charge will be made for these
garments, but hereafter all male bathers
must don the trunks before entering the
water. This is a move in the right direc
tion and cannot fail to add largely to the
good order and propriety of the baths.
The uselulness-of a good swimming school
located so conveniently as this one, cannot
be overestimated. All men, women, boys
and girls should learn to swim as a matter
of personal precaution. Captain Jordan is
constantly on hand to teach the men and
boys, and has arranged tc reserve the boat two
mornings each week for ladies and girls. On
every "Wednesday and Friday morning this
summer from 10 to 12 o'clock Captain
Jordan will exclude all men and bnys from
the boat, and his married sister will be
there to receive and teach ladies how to
swim, dive and float Neat suits will be
furnished free of charge to all ladies who
hare not their own bathing dresses with
them. The boat is perfectly safe, the, water
inside is carefully graded in depth and al
ready many of the gentler sex have learned
to swim and dive accomplishments which
are of the most useful as well as pleasant
kind. All may be sure of good treatment,
safety, propriety and privacy in Captain

GRAND ARMY ECHDEB.
GENERAL CYRUS BDSSEI.
A Few Interestlne Fncts Abont the Assist
ant Secretary of the Interior Depart
ment ABravo Soldier News From the
Posts Sons ol Veterans.
A successful man inbusiness, as a soldier,
as a legislator and as a political ; leader is
General Cyrus Bussey, Assistant Secretary
of the Interior Department. He was born
October .B, 1833, in Hubbard, Trumbull
county, Ohio. He went into business at a
very young age and prospered. In 1E5S he was
elected State Senator in Iowa on the Demo
cratic ticket Senator Bussey was still in office
when the Rebellion broke out His activity
and intelligence so commended him to
8. J. Kirkwood, the war Governor of the
State, that the latter appointed him
an aid on his staff. The Governor soon com
mitted the whole care of affairs along the
southern border to Bussoy's charge.! The bor
der was kept in a tumult by the audacious
rebels' forays and threatening demonstrations.
Owing to Senator Bnssey's shrewd manage
ment of the means at his command, none of
these resulted in anything serious. During the
summer, though laboring under exceptional
disadvantages. Senator Bussey, through his
wise management and quick action, defeated
and drove back in confusion a formidable
movement organized by the rebels for the in
vasion of Iowa and capture of Keokuk. Gov
ernor Kirkwood and General Fremont then in
sisted that he should take a command in the
field. He was commissioned as Colonel of the
Third Iowa Cavalry. He was ordered to join
the Army of the Southwest, under Geueral S.
Colonel Bussey commanded his brigade
through the remainder of the operations of the
spring and summer of 1862. In July he was as
signed to the Third Brigade of Steele's division
of the Army of the Southwest and held this
until September 2. He commanded various
brigades and divisions after this time until
January 11, 1863, when he was assigned to the
command of the district of Eastern Arkansas.
He was next given command of the Second
Cavalry Division. Army of tho Tennessee.
This took bim too far to the rear, however,
and he applied for more active service in con
nection with the Vicksburg campaign, which
was given nim in an assignment to command
the cavalry of Grant's army, upon the duties of
which office he entered May 81, and from that
time on until the stronghold surrendered had
bis bands full guarding the rear of the besieg
ing army, and watching Joe Johnston's hostile
demonstrations from Jackson. As soon as
Vicksburg surrendered General Sherman
started out to settle accounts with Johnston,
with Colonel Bussey, commanding the cavalry,
in advance. He encountered Jackson, com
manding the rebel cavalry, and after a sharp
little light routed him. He took an active part
in an ine ouerauons arouna ine citv or jacK-
son, by which Johnston was finally driven
away, and led the pursuit as far as General
Sherman thought best to go. With but a brief
rest to supply and partially refit his men, he
was oft again on another expedition to Canton,
Miss., where he found hU old opponent, Jack
son, with about 4,000 rebel cavalry. A stub
born fight followed, which resulted in the de
feat of Jackson and his being driven across
Pearl river. On this expedition Colonel Bus
say destroyed 13 important factories, 40 miles
of railroad and a large amount of rolling
January 5, 1S64, his well-earned and long-delayed
promotion to Brigadier General came,
and the commission stated that it was for
"special gallantry." He was given command
of the District of Western Arkansas and the
Indian Territory, and of the Third Division of
the Seventh corps. There was special reason
for this assignment growing out ot his superb
administration of the Eastern District of Ark
ansas. He was retained at this post until the
close of the war, lor Fort Smith was too im
portant a place to take any risks with during
the great operations in Arkansas,Louisiana and
Texas in '&4 and '6a He was breveted Major
General March IS, 1865.
Since the war he has been very successful in
business, in politics and as a public man. Space
forbids a detailed account of the many impor
tant public positions he has held. While in
New Orleans, whero be removed shortly after
the close of the war. he was always prominent
in work for the public good and his successes
were many. He is an eloquent speaker.

and Costly Scents in Vogue.
THE ETIQUETTE OP SWEET ODORS
.According to the Curious Code of a French
If ATUEE'S AGENTIN PDEIPIING THE AIE
rwarrrmr ron nut DisrAxcn.1
The costliest article of ancient commerce
was the heart of aloes, not the medicine but
the heartwood of the sacred aloes tree, fra
grant with enduring and inexpressible
sweetness, a treasure in which was paid the
yearly tribute of kings, a perfume so ex
quisite and esteemed that it was reserved
for the use of great potentates and holy
temples, of which neither trace nor knowledge
seems to exist in this country. The Eastern
women perfume their persons with tho smoke
of burning spices till their flesh impenetrated
with odors for days afterward, a practice kept
up in seraglio practice, till the flesh of a harem
favorite smells like one of those tablets of
pressed perfumes familiar In every collection
of Turkish wares.
In later times, at coronation feasts and civic
triumphs like those which graced the court of
Charles of Burgundy, fountains of wine and of
perfumes' were part of every show, a boon to be
thrice thankful for, in times when the common
people were, as Erasmus calls them, unwashed
clowns. At the entrance of Charles IL into
London sprav of perfumed waters was flung
upon the multitude, and among the English
and Italian nobility it was the custom to break
egg shells filled with perfume over the heads
of guests at dinner; the custom has descended
to our day in the perfumed crackers of French
chemists, capsules of gelatine filled with scent
and wrapped In brilliant papers, or silk cor
nets. USED BY ALL
With the Increase of wealth and refined per
sonal habits in this country the use of per
fumes Is no longer the mark of the rich, but ft
Is the necessity of all except the very poor. In
tho large fancy shops, confectionery, cheap
novels (not necessarily poor ones), scent jui
ets and handkerchief perfumes rise with every
season, and there appears to be a field for all
of them in supplying this growing country with
scent for its handkerchiefs, sachets for its cor
sages and waistcoat3 and toilet waters for its
baths. The writer has talked with all the lead
ing perfumers of New York, and in their busi
ness no complaint of hard times is beard. East,
West and South are alike in appreciation of
sweet odors. Of course the demand for these
is the greatest in the centers of population, but
the country is no way behind in its craving for
toilet luxuries, and it makes up for its lesser
population by the high quality of soaps and es
sences ordered. For the family of the rich
farmer, ranchman or planter, no Paris extracts
or toilet articles are- too costly; the very
choicest products are in demand for the rich
Southwest, Denver and San Francisco, and
nothing less will answer.
Country druggists say that In the late war,
when a woman received her husband's bounty
as a soldier, her first purchases were an'outtit
of fresh soaps, perfumery and cosmetics
things she had never been able to compass in
her stinted life before. She could and did
often work at sewing or photograph coloring
for a subsistence, but the available money went
for the minor luxuries, which often mean more
to life than its coarse necessities. What is life
worth without its pleasant sights, sounds and
One of the most exquisite offices In nature
Is that performed by scents of flowers In puri
fying the air, and breathing ozone into it by
their perfumes. Not Ml sweet-scented plants
do this, or all pleasant odors. The distinction 13
marked between the sedative odors and the re
viving ones. Lilies, jasmine, tuberose, orange
flowers and acacia in their natural form, borue
on the winds and mixed with many thousand
times their own volume of air, are pleasant,
soothing to a healthy sense, though delicate
nerves cannot enjoy them even in their garden
Brought closer in clusters of blossom, their
odor is narcotic depressing, so that persons
grow faint at smell of them, and yet more con
centrated their effect is stupefying and deadly.
Well-authenticated Instances abound of per
sons sent into heavy slumber as if drugged by
the odor of lilies or jasmine, and the scent of
orange flowers is so depressing to the action ot
the heart that it is no safe for anyono with
disease of that organ to Inhale it any length of
time. It is not at all imagination when nervous,
susceptible persons complain ot discomfort
from tho powerful scent of flowers or essences
of any sort.
The reviving scents arise from herbaceous
plants largely, from the odors ot roe, mignon
ette, lavender, thyme and lemon verbena, bal
samic rosemary, and chief of all, the carnation
family, including spicy stocks, wallflower and
pines. Not quite all sorts, for the fringed gar
den pink distils with its sweet spice a breath of
laurel ether like that of cherry blossoms,
which'make the bees drunk in their overblown
boughs. The scent of clove carnations is one
nature's finest stimulants, and a garden border
f nil of them is a cordon of delicate disinfection
as far as its odor spreads. So far. however, the
perfume of the carnation proves inimitable, the
mostjkillful perfumers making thelrperfumes
heavy by abase of jasmine added to the clove
ether. The jasmine is just too much, and no
sense seems delicate enough to discern what
needs to accompany the clove odor to resolve it
Wto pure carnation breath. This serves to il
lustrate the difficulties which the perfumer has
to meet with in bis serial, tantalizing chemistry.
THE SCALE OF ODOBS
is fixed as a scale of music. Combine such and
such notes and harmony results, but tho Inter
vals of the perfume octaves are semitones and
tones of infinite division, and mortal sense is
seldom fine enough to seize them with intelll-
f ent precision, ine oweuisn cnemist, jjudu
org. who has given his name to some of the
choicest perfumes of American make, was one
of these natural alchemists. Trained in the
careful study of natural sciences common to
Swedish universities, he ran away.from home
and followed a wandering life for years till he
settled in a New York laboratory as dispensing
chemist to a firm of manufacturing perfumers.
Lundborg was a natural genius, quaint, re
cluse, devoted to bis researches, and many a
girl who sprinkles her kerchief with the per
fume which adds the final charm to her pres
ence has reason to thank the ugly, peculiar
Swede for a pleasure she would ba very sorry
to lose. Imagine the world robbed of its per
fumes at a stroke, no fragrant waters for tne
toilet, no scents disguising lotions, soaps or
pomades, but everything in its bald, original
odor. One would bo thankful for a whiff of
cedronella or cheap heliotrope, methinks, or a
A curious French journalist diverted himself
lately by gravely suggesting tho propriety of
scents for certain occasions, in other words the
etiquette of perfumes. For instance, some ex
tracts should be used for outdoor promenades,
others for state occasions, others for the Inti
macy of the boudoir. The Idea is entirely new
to perfumers, and Tiffanys, who furnish scents
for their 250 dressiug cases, had never beard
of it; the notion might ba followed farther.
On rising, a person of elegant tastes might
dash tne water of the bath with French co
logne, whoso rosemary tincture has a most
reviving effect. The ambitious young woman
who is learning society, makes herself attract
ive sho imagines by scenting her person with
violet powder or heliotrope sachets, which are
a llttlo too expressive of desire to please. The
trained belle bathes her neck and.f ace in water
which a few drops of .benzoin tincture nukes
agreeable, and you approach her finding a deli
cate sweetness pervading her presence, and
deepening as you take your place by her side,
as it It were an aroma from her flesh, like some
some flowers whose slight fragrance is only
discernible by closest senso. Her garments are
perfumed by sachets lying among their folds
in the wardrobe, n6t worn with them, which
gives them tho evanescent charm of the odor
of flowers, "which comes and goes on the air
llko the warbling of rausiCt" as Bacon says.
TOR HER MOKNINO HIDES
In the park, her habit may be scented more
decidedly witi ; aromatic Fean d'Espagne, or
some Eastera blending of -cedar and sandal, or
with the raspings of camphor wood, which
yields an arbma totally distinct from the gum.
Some such suggestion of scent is certainly
preferable to that of the best groomed horse,
when one must be on his back. Possibly, our
French writer would say in the forenoon one
must see one's lawyer in regard to some con
veyance, and it would totally detract from the
IdeA of 6crIous business to go redolent with
white lilac nr cau marecbal.scents of the salon.
Only such perfume as tea rose hidden in the
folds of the dress, or a drop of sweetbrleron
the handkerchief, may give discreet pleasure,
by rising over the smells ot dust and chlorine
which gather in offices from the accumulation
.At a dinner no perfumes are worn. Odorous
flowers are not allowed to mix with the savor of

THE E03IANCE OP PEETTJME.
Such fancies belong to the persons not quite
young; who yet never grow old, but are a be
trayal of ardent sensibilities transformed into
tastes and keen remembrances. The dulling
of time does not take place with such people. It
only refines them; Or the delicate old perfume
may be carried by one of those young people,
serious and mature beyond their years, who are
condensed romances. One can tell a character,
or at least Its development, by a perfume
One thing Is curious but perfectly natural,
that perfumers by trade never care to use per
fumes, they breathe so much of them. After
visiting the laboratories of two or three manu
facturers, one comes home with a feeling that
there Is no scent like the perfume of clean
linen, that indescribable freshness whjch Ln
bm essayed to imitate in his forgotten eau de
Mousseline. For all that, perfumes have their
use and value, for they were esteemed for their
medicinal qualities by the earliest and greatest
physicians, and the formulas for certain odors
were written on marble tablets in the public
temples. Nature, which gives each animal its
proper smell, improves upon this with man,
whom she gives choice ot a hundred odors for
soothing and stimulant. Siiibley Dabz.

THE pastel portrait of a little boy by H. S.
Stevenson shown at Mayer's Is, in some re
spects, much better than many works of the
same class which are placed on exhibition at
various times. The coloring is very good, and
in the handling of the work the expression of
ronndness and firmness in the flesh has been
well attained. Some of Mr. Stevenson's best
work is done in pastel, of which fact the por
trait in question wifl hear evidence.
Two rather interesting pictures have been
noticed at Gillespie's, where tbey wore left to
be reframed. One is "The Convalescent," by
Leon Callle, the property of Mrs. Bell, and the
other 13 a work by BIythe, owned by James
Patton. The latter work shows an overturned
sleigh with its occupants partly upon the
ground in front of a country tavern, while the
horse, which has broken its harness and run
off, is seen not far away looking back at the
havoc he has wrought.
A studt of an overturned basket of red, ripe
strawberries, painted by A. C. Wooster, Is on
view at Morrison's. Tho basket and the ber
ries are both well handled and of good color,
but tbey are seen against a cold, bard back
ground produced by a mixture of black and
white paint which forms a ha'Sh contrast to
the rich tints of the fruit. This artist could
give a much greater value to his fruit painting
by releiving it against a background of a trifle
warmer and more harmonious color.

Mb. A. F. Krso Is to the fore again with a
very excellent piece of work in the line of a
still-life showing pottery, flowers, etc. The
picture is well balanced both in color and com
position, and hasbeen skillfully handled to pre
serve the harmony of tone. The execution is
in a style straightforward and honest, being
free from any affectation of the dash and
splurge which is miscalled broad handling, and
also from the minuteness and pettiness that is
just as improperly termed finish. The work is
on view at Gillespie's.
The fruit piece in pastel by Miss Ka'tzen
berger is a very cleverly handled work, and if
Its composition and coloring is all original with
that lady she has certainly attained a degree of
excellence in these respects which places her
work on a plane far above the average of pict
ures of the same character. The variety and
richness of color, the softness and delicacy of
tone and the fine sense of harmony and har
monious contrasts is such as is. seldom at
tained by the ordinary student of art. The
grace and beanty of the arrangement and the
clear perception of o true proportion and bal
ance of effect is evidently a result of knowl
edge and training such as Is possessed only by
a finished artist.
Mb. Will 8. Reynolds has another still
life at Boyd's. It Is very similar in character
to the one which attracted so much attention
there a few weeks since, but is greatly superior
In execution. In the arrangement of the vari
ous objects, this work has seme claim to be
artistic, while the former picture had none
whatever, and there is also expressed some
idea of tone and the relation of each object to
those surrounding it. The picture is evidently
intended to express a vein of sarcasm with re
gard to one form of temperance agitation, as
there Is shown a thumbed and tattered volume
Inscribed "Bine Laws" in otose proximity to a
large-sized stone jog labeled "Old Mononga
bela," while a copy of the National Light is
seen close by among other objects of less im
portance, snch as a pipe, tobacco, etc. As in
other works by the same-artist the coloring is
verv close to nature, with the single exception
of the newspaper, which is too coldly white in
the light, too coldly blank in the shadow, and
is out ot tone with the balance of the work.
Two small sketches by Mr. G. F. Hetzel, a
nephew of the well-known artist of that name,
are on exhibition at Young's. It would be diffi
cult to place the pictures where they would be
seen to a greater disadvantage than they are in
the position which they have occupied for some
davs in the window, and it would be just as
difficult to defend the action of placing upon
them cards inscribed "Hetzel. artist." They
would never deceive anyone acquainted with
the works of the man who has made the name
"HetzeV'so familiar in art circles, but that they
aro not only liable to mislead,but actually have
misled, others less conversant with such matters
is a fact perfectly within the Knowledge of the
writer. So far as the pictures themselves are
concerned, they exhibit a great deal of pains
taking care and an utter lack of knowledge of
what is meant by finish, both of the end to be
achieved and the method of its attainment. It

A vebt cleverly handled landscape with

style. It Is not the first of his pictures that has
been seen in this city, but it is unquestionably
one of the best, and yet In spite of that fact it
is possessed of one fault for which it is ex
tremely difficult to account. There is very
small excuse for an artist of Mr. Johnston s
ability painting a dog with a face like a sheep,
but he has done so. nevertheless, and attached
it to a body that Is admirably drawn. With the
balance of the work there is little or no fault to
be found: the sheep are well drawn and natural
in attitude and the colorscheme of the whole is
quiet and pleasing. The landscape I subdued
in tone and the interest here is subordinated to
that which centers in the animals. With this
end in view the color Is keyed somewhat below
that of nature, and cool tones of brown and
f:reen have been made to prevail. The hand
ing also is here very broad and free, with little
rare for minuteness of detail, and even tbo
figure of a man lazily reclimnguponthegrouna
has been broadly hinted at rather than ex
pressed. Miss Voegtly, whoso bright summer land
scape was noticed in this column last Sunday
has another picture at Young's. This time she
has e'sayed the rendition of a winter scene, and
her efforts have not been crowned with any too
great a degree of success. A cold, bleak day in
midwinter, the scene a roadway winding past
on the edge of a wood, whero tall trees raise
their snow-covered crests toward the sky. such
is the subject of her work, the spirit of which
has been in a great measure lost through faulty
handling. It Is difficult to do justice to winter
landscapes, for the reason that their chief
beanty consists of a peculiar delicacy of tone
which requires considerable knowledge to ren
der faithfully upon canvas, and the beauty of
which the perception of tne average student is
too dull to either feel or appreciate. Beginners
frequently favor subjects of this kind becauso
they appear to be verysimple, both in form and
color, forgetting that their great charm lies in
something moro subtle still, and that it will
not do to paint the sky and distance of a flat
gray tone and the foreground of a ghastly
wnite. Miss Voegtly has not failed so signally
in these respects as manv others have done,
bat still her picture is too bard where it is in
