THE BAGGAGE-SMASHEB'S PICNIC.
The crowds are becinning to arrive. Every
boat comes in loaded, and the baggage-smasher,
who is to be f oond even at Chautauqua, has an
opportunity to exercise his fiendish talent to
his heart's content. The amphitheater begins
to look homelike by being crowded to Its ut
most seating capacity. During July it is very
quiet here. There are not many guests, and
most of them are teachers; but when August
comes Chautauqua puts on a livelier appear
ance. Then it is that pleasure-seekers begin to
The Sunday School Assembly has opened,
and the classes bav been organized. Tuesday
evening was the opening night, and, according
to the, custom, Chautauqua was in her gala
attire. Japanese lanterns bordered the walks
on the hotel lawn, and encircled the amphi
theater with a line of light. Colored lights
cast roseate veils over the scene, the Athe
neum watch-fires were burning, the platform
.of the amphitheater was decorated with a pro
fusion of llowers and twinkling fairy lights.
The exercises consisted of a vesper service
and five minute addresses by prominent men.
It seemed more like a pleasant social evening
than pnblic exercises. The speakers indulged
in a good deal of levity bright stories, good
humored jokes at each others expense, and
pleasant reminiscences. Music wai furnished
by Rogers' Band, and Miss Annie Park, a cor
net is t, of Boston. Greeting from away were
read, and friends who have died in the last
year were tenderly remembered. The best
speech of the evening was made by Dr. Dnn
can. Secretary of Chautauqua. For once, he
surprised us by restraining his fondness for
bis own voice, and merely saying, "The poor
t you have always with you; so it is with me."
A display of pyrotechnics put a brilliant period
to the eveninjrs entertainment.
However, all the gayety was not yet at an
end. A banquet was given at the hotel by the
management to the Press Association of
Western New York and Pennsylvania. A
goodly number attended, and enjoyed them
selves far into the wee hours of tha morning.
EDIXOS IHEPABS TALKS.
Colonel Elliott F. Shepard, proprietor of the
.New York Mail and Express, gave an address
Sunday evening on the snbject of keeping the
Sabbath holy. When you have said that be
had a good subject, a fine presence and a pleat
ing voice, nothing remains to be said in his
favor. No one has shown more skill than he
in emptying tha amphitheater. It was the
more disappointing! because expectations
had been raised so high. His address was Illog
ical and ungrammatical and he violated every
rule of good oratory. Although he may be a
uientca man, nis vocation is not public
This week has been full of unusually rich
treats. Dr. Gunsaulus, of Chicago, has carried
the people by storm with bis brilliant oratory.
Prol. J.;P. Mahaffy, of Trinity College, Dub
lin, has given some fine lectures spiced with
keen Irish wit. The finest musical talent Is
now here that Chautauqua has ever afforded.
Mr. William Sherwood, the famous pianist, the
Cecilian Quartet, of New York, Miss Annie
Park, Rogers' Band a good chorus under H. R.
Palmer, and Mrs. Doc, of New York, make up
the corps of musicians. They have given one
concert and are to give several more.
Dr. Gunsaulus has been made President of
the chorus for the coming year. There is much
honor in the position, but little else.
Onl v the blesjins of life here are ordinarily
described, bnt that, by no means, proves there
are no ills. Yonr trials begin as soon as you
arrive. You start in search of a boardingplace
and traverse the area of the grounds with no
success, finally coming back thankfully to the
place you thought at first mnst bo tbe'most
undesirable on the grounds. When you have
been there a half a day and your trunk has not
put in an appearance, you call upon the bag
gage master, and gently bint of an unfulfilled
duty. You possess your Boul In patience a few
hours longer, then casually drop in to see the
baggage man again, and tenderly expostulate
with blm on the error or his ways. The third
time you go you make a brief remark in a de
cided tone, and your tiunk arrives duly.
TWO VIEWS OP CHAUTAUQUA.
On seating yourself at the lecture in the
evening, you discover that "you are what is
called in Chautauqua vernacular, posted. That
Is, there is a slight obstruction to your view,
over, under, around or through, which you
cannot see. A man behind you makes use of
your dress in lieu of a door mat. talking volu
blyto his companion so that J ou do not hear a
word of tho lecture. You arc not in what
might be called a sanctimonious frame of mind
wben you reach home. You sit down In semi
darkness, for want of more oil In the lamp, and
write a boiac-sick letter, describing the dreary
rain f or as the proverb- says, 'It sometimes
rains at Chautauqua" and your room with
the window that cannot be raised, and the bu
reau drawers that will not open, and the mir
ror that makes you look as though you pos
sessed three eyes, and were laugh
ing with one side of your face
and crying with the othf r. But enough of this
dismal picture! Tbe next day you send a letter
post haste after the other first, so full of en
thusiasm and glowing pictures that your
friends think your sufferings have driven you
insane. This is- almost invariably the experi
ence of a newcomer.
Tennis is having such a run here this summer
that there are not enongh courts for everyone
to play who wants to. The management ought
to invest in a few more. There are only four
and they are in use from 6 In the morning until
7 at night. The hours are given out by lot.
Everyone plays tennis unlets he be too old and
dignified. In which case be plays croquet. Bi
cycling and boating are also very popular
pastimes. Fishing is not a favorite sport here.
GAT ATLANTIC CUT.
Thousands of Pittsbnrgers DIsportlngThcm
aelvea In the Snrf.
rSFECLU. TZXXOBXU TO TBS DISPATCH.!
ATLAjmc Cmr, August 10. Sevenhundred
more Pittsburgers arrived here from Pittsburg
yesterday afternoon. The influx of sojourners
is so great that, notwithstanding the great
numbers who are leaving for borne dally, the
hotels and cottages are packed and there is
little room for more.
The inspiration one receives from sitting for
an hour on the beach during bathing hours is
peculiar. The scenes are varied, often pleas
ant, often unpleasant to the eye. Now they
are beautifully picturesque and again they are
dead and uninteresting. Every one who dons
uaimng costume, ue ue uis.u w ivuuiau,
goes Into the surf, only after promenading and
posing along tne Deacn to attract attention anu
No money is spared by those who come -here
to make themselves tbe most attractive on the
beach. The loudest colors ever used In woman's
costumes can be seen every morning covering
the figures of women who depend entirely on
art for the beauty of their appearance, while
the real beauties who visit the seashore are tbe
most modestly attired of all. The bathing this
week is a great improvement over that of last
week, and the bathing houses have not half
enongh costumes to supply tbe thousands who
daily seek robes with which to enter the surf.
The attractions of tho weeklincluded Pain's
Fall of Pompeii, which attracted fully 25,000
people: Morrisey's Grand English Opera
Company, which sang to fully 8,000 during the
week; Kellar. the magician; the Spanish Stu
dents, and a number of other good shows, air
of which attracted big crowds nightly.
A VAEIED THEONO.
The classes of people here this week- are as

rSrSCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DZSFXTCH.1
Caps MAT, August 10. To-night Is the big
gest one of tbe season, and this popular resort
is packed with people from every State in the
Union and from many other countries. Tbe
majority of them are Fennsylvanians, who
have come to have a grand good time, and they
are experiencing it. In fact tbe visitors to
Cape May are bound to have fun, because the
place is made to have fun in. 'But when a
Pittsbnrger gets here there is more than fun.
Tbe most largely attended hops of this year are
in progress to-night at the Stockton, Congress
Hall and tbe Columbia, while wagon loads of
people on straw rides are going through the
town tooting horns and yelping joyous songs
and noises. At almost every other hotel there is
a dance party, or a euchre party, or an observa
tion party. These parties are numerous, very
numerous, at tbe private cottages as well as the

hotels entirely up. and there Is a big rush of

The weather seems to have taken a change
from that of last month, and now we have' the
best of weatber. These sunshiny days are"
monopolized by tbe admired belles and gallant
beaux for lawn tennis and games of the out
door style on the big lawns that abound in Cape
May. The tennis courts are always being used
by their lovers, and Cape May has a good share
of fair players. General James R. Chalmers,
of Mississippi, has been a Cape May guest for
five weeks, coming here with poor health. He
is dally improving, and will soon be all right
again. He is stopping at Congress HalL Gen
eral Chalmers has held a prominent place in
tbe politics of bis State for years past. In the
late war be was a prominent officer in the Con
federate service, fighting .in the defense ot the
doctrine of State rights; but when the cause
failed be accepted the situation and became a
restored Union man. J. Frank Morrison, Pres

settled down in its new camp at this point,
Fifteen of the large wall tents are occupied,
while tbe commissary department Is, as usual,
filled to overflowing with all the luxuries of
life. The camp is a revelation to all visitors,
as few clubs are as magnificently equipped. The
weather has been frightfully cold,and overcoats,
camp fires and warm blankets are sought in
stead of mosquito nets. In fact fires were so
badly needed that George Mclntyre, the dash
ing fireman of. No. 8 engine house, was nearly
run to death keeping np the blaze. Tony Dean
had a notion to help him, but it was only a psss.
lug fit of energy. By tbe way, Tony was so

be wanted to make a contract immediately to
put a wire fence around it,
Hon,M. B. Lemon has made two trips to

but returned each time with the excusejthat

A poeteait of a lady.palnted by Mr. Charles
Walz. may be seen at Young's.

both been sold by Boyd & Co,
"The Woodland Spring," a new etching by
Earnest C. Rost, is a very excellent work as re

Mb. A F. Krwo has recently developed a
marked preference' for still-life painting. Pot
tery, drapery, fruit and flowers seem at pres
ent to manifest some unwonted charm for him,
if one may judgrfby the steadiness of hisappli
cation to such subjects.
A new artist's etching, by Peter Moran, en
titled Woodland Pool," has just been Issued.
The scene is an open place in a wood with a
pool of water which serves as a drinking place
for cattle. Like most of Mr. Moran's work,
this etching is particularly well bandied hi spite
of a certain stillness in the rendering of foliage.
The composition Is beautiful and It has about
it a style and dignity that renders it of excep
Me. Theodoee Child, in speaking of the
exhibit of English art at the Paris Exposition,
says: 'The English, it is true, are tbe only
people, in Europe at least, wbo know bow to
bang pictures, to isolate against a wall covered
with material of exquisite tone, and to give
them a precious and rich aspect by putting a
class before them. I imagine that many
Lnglitb pictures owe "half their charm to the
glass before them and tbe other half to the
frame." If Mr. Child means what he says in
the last sentence quoted above, he is rather
severe in bis criticism of one class of British
Wobk on the art gallery of the new Exposi
tion is progressing rapidly, and Mr. Clarence
M. Johns, the superintendent of the art depart
ment, is still busily engaged perfecting arrange
ments regarding the receipt and care of pic
tures. All works for exhibition should be in
bis charge prior to the 16th of the month.
Since- It will be Impossible to construct the
most desirable and improved form of skylight
in time tor the opening on September 4. it has
been decided to make use of artificial light for
the coming exhibition. However, as tbe
greatest number of persons attend the Exposi
tion during the evening, this is not so serious
a drawback as i.pon first thought
it may appear. Incandescent electric
1'Bhts of 16 candle power will
be used f oi tbe purpose.' The number of lamps
used will be about tiOO. and it is expected that
they will produce a soft and diffused light
equal to that of day as regards strength, and
the best substitute for daylight that bas yet
been devised as regards quality. In tbe exhi
bition of this presentyear the art objects shown
will consist mainly, or perhaps almost entirely,
of pictures, but in time to come it is tbe inten
tion to bave the lower floors of the building
well stocked with scnlpture, bronzes, et;c., so
that hereafter the art feature of the Exposi
tion will be as complete and interesting as it is
possiDie to make IL
Two pictures, in the familiar style of Mr.
George Hetzel, are shown at Mayer's. Tbe
subjects of these works are of the kind which
this artist so strongly 'favors tbat they are
recognized as "Hetzel" pictures wherever seen.
The larger work shows a very pretty glade,
with a small stream flowing out to the fore,
ground from among' some good-sized rocks
This painting is noL perhaps, so carefully fin
ished as some of Mr. HetzeVs work, but It bas
bis usual happy effect of sunlight and clever
management of light and shade, and forms,
upon the whole, a very pleasant picture. The
smaller picture is of a similar character, except
that the interest centers nearer the foreground,
where the water forms a pool and reflects some
pleasant tones of color, and that tbe compo
sition is rather less of tbe style tbat is now
known as peculiar to Hetzel. Qf quite a dif
ferent character Is tbe small canvas which tbe
same artist has on view at Boyd's, on which be
bas managed to express very cleverly a great
deal of the effect of a bright sunny day in
early fall. The scene is of a rather mountain
ous character, showing a picturesque glen with
high hills in the distance, being a representa
tion of a scene in autumn, under an almost
cloudless sky, with the soft effect of haze so
otten observed during the month of October,
tbe work is necessarily of a warmer tone and
more varied color than those Mr. Hetzell
usually favors. As tbe color, handling and
composition are all good, the picture Is
effective even though on such a small scale.
"The Poet's Daughter" is the title which
Mr. O. S. Kilpatrick has given to a picture
which he has on exhibition at Boyd's. The
work is an idealized study of the head of a
young girl with a thoughtful, dreamy look and
an expression pensive almost to sadness,
though it can scarcely be called bordering
upon, melancholy, Mr. Kilpatrick, i deserves
credit for a work of this'class. not so'much for
technical excellence, as on account of the fact
that his aim is toward one of the highest
branches of art, and so much as he bas really
accomplished Is a step in the right direction.
He is not by any means an old man yet. and bis
work shows some faults that will, in all proba
bility, be corrected in his future
psoductions, but in spite of any short
comings or technical errors shown
by this picture he has managed to invest it
with many of the characteristics of a finished
artwork. The color is good so far as it goes,
there being a manifest determination to avoid
crudity by'keeping it quiet and subdued. Tbe
poise of tbe bead is artistic and it is well
placed upon the canvas, but in tbe modeling of
the face may be noticed the serious fault of
the work in tbat the lower portion looks too
flat and lacks the appearance of a proper de-
ree ot projection. In a small woodland scene
y the same artist there is a strange mingling
of good, bad and indifferent qualities. The
composition is good, and much of the drawing
is also, but there is some faulty handling ana
bad coloring, since tbe prevailing dark and
bluish tint is neither possible in nature nor
particularly pleasant to look upon.
