that she is now in a vastly improved condi
tion of health, and that with her increased
physical strength", her artistic work, Blways
remarkable for its intensity, is even still
more so. She will be seen here in her three
favorite roles: "Camille," EeueeDe Moray"
and "Helene," a new play written for her
by a young American lady, Miss Martha
Morton. This play is one ot remarkable quali
ties, being Intensely Ingenious in its construc

necessary to display the powers of tbe. great
actress, considerable comedy elements Her
supporting company Is by far tbe best she bas

Tbat popular comedian, Mr. Nat C. Goodwin,,
will appear at the Opera House next week in
his latest and said to be bis greatest success,
entitled "A Gold Mine." From our exchanges
we learn the play bas made a success, both
East and West. In tbe leading role, it is said,
tbat of SilatK. Wooleott, Mr. Goodwin finds a
character more suited to bis various talents
than any be bas ever impersonated. Favorite
as be is here, and appearing In this higher
class ot work, be ought to do well. Tbe dia
logue is said to be brilliant and worthy tbat ot
any modern comedy. It Is stated that Mr.
Bronson Howard called it tbe "best written
Slece he bad seen for years;" and Mr. Dion
onclcault gave It even higher praise, for be
declared it to be the "best American comedy
be had ever seen.
The powerful drama of "My Partner" will be

Mb. A. Bbtaw Waix, who bas been sketch
ing among tbe mountains for some time past,
was expected to arrive home last evening.
One of tbe finest works in tbe way of an
etching tbat bas been published for some time
past is that entitled "Breaksrs," by Otis Weber,"
a picture tbat shows a splendid effect ot curl
ing and tossing wares.
A number of small water-color paintings by
Mr. D. B. Walkley are shown at Mayer's. They
are small pictures, very cleverly handled, as
are most of Mr, Walkley's efforts In this line of
work. The subjects are all of a simple charac
ter, indeed tbey should be called studies, rather
than complete Dictures, but tbey are Just such
bright little bits of eolor effect as are unsur
passed for landing an air ot brightness and
cheerfulness to a room,
"Maqnolia" is the title of a work by Mr.
James R. Woodwell tbat is really a marine
view, consisting as it does of little else but sea
and sky with bat a glimpse of distant shore.
The picture is a very pleasing one with an effect
of calmness and repose; tbe waters stilled be
neath a quiet dreamy sky. Mr. Woodwell's
happy faculty of combining a few simple
forms Into a striking and effective nlctura is
seen to advantage in this work, which, slight
as it may seem, bears evidence of very careful
Mb, Wrxii S. Reynolds exhibits a painting
at Gillespie's in which the degree ot technical
excellence Is scarcely in keeping with the
character of the subject The scene repre
sented is tbe exterior of a small cottage shown
in the midst of a wintry landscape. Near tbe
door of tbe cottage may be seen tbe figure of a
little girl who. apparently Is experiencing some
difficulty in making headway against the force
of the wind. Tbe subject is a good one, but it
is too hard and stiff In handling, and is too
meager of detail to make an effective picture.
Mb, Geoeoe Hetzel has a very pleasing
little landscape exhibited at Boyd's. In re
spect of composition, the work is unique and
of a character quite different from the class of
subjects usually chosen by tbis artist It Is
neither a woodland scene nor yet an open land
scape, bat partakes somewhat of tbe nature of
botb. In tbe foreground are some fine old
trees, and looking out from among them the
eye travels over green and sunny fields until
the view Is again obstructed ,py others in the
distance. The handling Is in the stvle with
which all admirers of works by Hetzel are
familiar, and it has been carried to a consider
able degree of finish and elaboration of detail.
Light and shade form an important feature of
this painting; in fact light and shade and com
position constitute its principal features as a
woik of art, and their being so well managed
Tenders the picture a very effective one.
It Is not every day tbat we can obtain a
glimpse of a fine work by Henner, and when
one is accessible, it is worth while to go out of
our way to see It. Pictures by Henner are rare,
not so much because be does not paint as
rapidly as tbe average artist of equal ability,
but because there Is scarcely another to be
mentioned with so pronounced an individuality
of style. His work Is noted tor its strength and
richness ot coloring, and also for a peculiar
type of face tbat is seen in no pictures but bis.
The face is an uncommon, almost an Ideal one,
and in spite of tbe fact tbat he works at differ
ent times from various models, be always man
ages to Invest his pictures with tbe same pe
culiar characteristic's. An excellent example of
this artist's work may now be seen at tbe Gil.
lesple gallery,where it will undoubtedly attract
a great deal of attention. The style of tbis
work is very much like that ot tbe old masters,
tbe color being noticeably after tbe manner ot
That Mr, Fred Busman, tbe well-known
vocal teacher, has on several occasions given
evidence of a considerable degree of ability as
a painter, botb in tbe matter of native talent
and acquired skill. Is a fact very well-known to
bis numerous friends; and if any further proof
could be required, it is furnished by the pic
ture which he bas at present on exhibition at
Boyd's. Tbe sublect of tbis painting, which is
a large-sized work in oILIs a sceno on Point
creek, near Scalp Level. The spot Is a familiar
one to visitors to that picturesque locality, it
being situated but a few minutes' walk below
tbe village, and lsoneot the most easily ac
cessible points in tbe famous glen through
which the waters of tbe creek finds its way over
a bed ot stone. Mr. Busman is accustomed to
take up bis brush and palette In such odd
moments as do not interfere with the pursuit
of bis profession, and tbe picture in question
Is one noon which he has worked in this man
ner at different times during tbe past two years.
THERE are two pIcturesbyMr.H.S.Stcvenson
shown at Boyd's. The first Is an excellently
well-handled water 'color, and is unquestion
ably as fine a work or Its class as this artist bas
ever produced; tbe second is in oil. and, though
possessed of some good qualities, is by no
means one of Mr. Stevenson's best efforts.
The water color referred to is a landscape
showing a broad stretch of level country,
bounded in tbe distance by a belt of trees, and
tbe foreground com posed of a luxuriant marshy
growth of long, rank grass. The whole effect
of tbis work is artistic; it is good in composi
tion and has been very effectively handled.
Tbe subject of tbe second picture is a sbady
spot beside a small stream where a woman and
a young girl are seen engaged in washing
clothes. This picture is better in conception
than execution, and would be still more effect
ive if the two trees were not so nearly alike,
and from a technical standpoint ot criticism.
It would be improved by being brongbt
to a higher degree ot finish and a
greater elaboration of detail. These are two
works by the same artist, between wbich there
is no comparison as regards the satisfaction
they afford tbe beholder. In examining the
one we are impressed with a sense of fullness
and completeness of tbe work being finished
and the story fully told; when looking at the
other we become aware of a sense of vacancy,
of something wanting, and we feel but little in
ducement to prolong qur study, since all that is
to be seen is on the surface and may be taken
in with even a hurried glance.
amono other aifflcrfltles that artists have to
contend with, tbe fading and otherwise under
going alteration to wbich certain pigments are
liable Is very well known and understood, but
few persons oatside of the charmed circle of
artists or art students are aware tbat la addi
tion to tbis falling certain colors bave tbe qual
ity ot destroying each other in mixture. Many
colors tbat are perfectly safe if used alone or
in mixture with the majority of other pig
ments in general use, are latal to the harmony
of a picture If used together, for they will
quarrel chemically as sore as acids and alkalis,
If tbey chance to come in contact with each
other. Thus, orpiment is destroyed by white
lead, and a brilliant green produced by an ad
mixture of cadmium with emerald green
changes In tbe course of a few weeks' time to a
dull and dlrty-looklngtintof color, vastly dif
ferent from its original condition. White lead,
a color in almost universal use. and one tbat
will probably continue so for the reason that
nothing has been found or is likely to be found
tbat artists will accept in its place, nothing
that is found so satisfactory in working, and
nothing with wbich tbe artistic effects can so
readily be produced; bat, for all tbat, white
lead is a color that can not safely be mixed
witn all other colors, and even when used alone
It turns yellow with age, or blackens if it
comes In contact with sulphuretted hydrogen
gas. The whites made from zinc and from
curomate of baryta are almost perfect chro
matically, tbat is, tbey will neither turn yellow
nor blacken under any ordinary conditions.
But both of these pigments are too thin and
weak, and tbey lack tbe pecnliar richness of
white lead; they bave not sufficient body for
solid painting, and few artists can be induced
to use tbeni throughout a picture, but tbey
compromise and use lead in those positions
least likely to suffer from exposure.

be congratulated that their distinguished
guest, Commander In Chief Basse! A. Al

preseneq was ipcideut to the General's visit,
were so royally entertained. Of all the en

travels in different sections none equaled
that of Allegheny connty. The General
appreciated tbis fact and our county is proud
The reception at Old City Hall was not ai
large as was expected or as it would have
been had.it not been for a misunderstanding
growing out of the published announcement
that General Alger was to arrive on Thurs
day and (hat the reception would take place
then. The audience was a representative one,
however, and an enthusiastic, one, duly appre
ciating the excellent addresses.
Tbe speechesat the ball were well covered In

General Alger, tbe distinguished comrade, with
tbe invited guests and a few local Grand Army
celebrities, repaired to the Hotel Doquesqe,
where a banquet, the grandeur of which Is
seldom eclipsed, was tendered tbe Cammander-In-Chief.
The table was beautifully decorated
with tbe choicest flowers; tbe menu was on a
plane with the finest, and the responses to the
appropriate toasts.were indeed crawl.
Comrade A. P. Burcbfield ably officiated as
toast master. The toast, the "Grand Army ot
tbe Republic" was responded to by the guest
ot tbe evening. "Tho Department of Pennsyl
vania" was the toast assigned Department
Commander Stewart, and we all know his
vigorous, happy and encouraging style.
Major J. F. Dsnniston talked about the
"Working. Comrade" in his usual
excellent manner. The "Fraternity ot the G.
A. R.," the "Volunteer Soldier," ana the
"Soldier and Civilian" were responded to re
spectively by the comrades from the bencn.
Judges P. H. Collier, J. V. Slagle and J. W.
Ower. John A. Logan, Jr., made response ti
the toast "Our Sons ot Veterans." An elo
quent response was mads to the toast tbe
'Loyal Women of 'pl to 6S" by Comrade Chill
W. Hazzard. Comrade James McCormlck
talked touchingly about "Oar Fallen Com
rades." Tbe deserved applause bestowed upon
tbe sneakers was liberal. Ths banauet closed.

badly, having bad such a heavy mortality
within tbe last few years, which, if It continue
at the same rate, will render tbe organization

POLLS' FANCY DRESS BALL.
A Reunion of Three Generations of Dolts

fancy dress ball" giyen yesterday afternoon
by Fleishman 8 Co. All the little folks in
the Twin Cities had been invited to partici
pate in the festivities of the gala occasion,
and they had respgndeJ to the invitations
by the scores.
The event was a grand reunion of the
large and extensive family ol "dolls,"
and, arrayed in most bewitching toilets,
were all relatives of that well-known family
for three generations. Grandparents, par
ents and children.
A great deal of cariosity was evinced by
the spectators to see the "beauties" of tbat
family, which is renowned for its handsome
members, and they were all there, blondes
and brunettes, ond, like all beauties, were
not averse to being gazed nt If they are at
all inclined to be vain the admiration ex
pressed on all sides must roost certainly
have turned their cunning little heads, A
great many of tne young ladies' dolls were
invited by tbe little folks' mammas to visit
them daring the coming winter.jo it is very
likely a large delegation of the lamily will
grace private social gatherings daring the
