Miss Carol Aus, the painter of minia
tures, is as well known in the West
as in New York. She lived for a num
ber of years in Chicago. On one of these
occasions a visitor stopped in front of
one of the most carefully finished min
iatures and asked inquiringly, "How
much are these worth?"
"Three hundred dollars.'*
"That's not much for a miniature."
"No," replied the visitor shame
facedly. "Why, of course not. I didn't
look surprised, did I?"
At another time a visitor asked:
"How muoh did you say a miniature
"From $200 to $500."
"Let me see. There are about five
square inches in this picture. That is
about $100 an inch. I suppose you'd
charge about $7,500 for a life-sized pic
ture, wouldn't you?"
"No," replied Miss Aus; "I don't paint
big pictures; but if I did It wouldn't
cost any .more than one of my minia
tures. The work wouldn't be any
harder—possibly not so hard."
"Oh, I see. It's the ivory that makeß
It so expensive. Now, how much would
you charge to paint a picture of me on

Mmc Felix Faure, with her daugh
ter, Mdlle. Lucie Faure, paid a visit a
few days ago to the atelier of the
sculptor Rene de Saint Marceaux to see
the model of the monument he has been
commissioned to execute for the late
President's tomb at Pere Lachaise.
Abandoning his first idea of represent
ing M. Faure seated, M. Saint Mar
ceaux has evidently drawn his inspira
tion from his first great work of this
description—the figure designed for the
tomb of Alexandre Dumas flls—and
modeled the figure in a recumbent pos
ture, while the floating draperies of the
French and Russian flags form a prom
inent feature of the design..

It Is claimed that Maud Earle of Lon
don is the successor of Rosa Bonheur as
the greatest living painter of animal
life. A few months ago her pictures
first appeared in public. Soon the pri
vate saloons were hung with them.
Owners of champion dogs sought Miss
Earle's services to paint their favoritrs
and her studio in Bloomfield place was
constantly thronged with animals that
have won a reputation in sporting Eng
land. Her fame reached the court and
she has the distinction of being the first
woman to paint the dogs of royalty.

There is a charming reference to
Lady Crewe, Lord Rosebery's daughter,
in the "Life of Sir John Millais." When
the great artist was painting her pic
ture in ISB4 the child became much
attached to him, and when a few years
later Lady Peggy suffered from a seri
ous, .'illness a lock of her golden hair,
which had been cut off by the doctor's
advice, was sent to Sir John Millais. It

In art, the mantle of Italy has fallen
upon France. And how does she ab
solve herself of her mission? I have
never heard of a restrictive measure to
exclude foreigners nor of a fear that
her trade might suffer through the ap
plication of the lessons she teaches her
rivals. She leaves the exercise of this
spt-cies of narrowmindedness to her
neighbor. All her art schools, as well
as her other schools, are free, and open
to all comers. The classes of her splen
did Ecole dcs Beaux Arts are taught
by her great masters, who consider it
an honor to teach the aspiring artists
bf all nations congregating around
them, without regard to emolument. Let
our American artists say what they
would be without the teaching of Paris,
or what their home schools would be
without the influence radiating from
that city. The barrier erected in most
countries between high art and indus
trial art has been removed in France.
The drawing master of the day school
is thoroughly in touch with the high
school in art. The curriculum is shap
ed by the highest authorities In learn
ing and in art. The art teachers and
drawing masters of the provincial
schools are allowed their traveling ex
penses, if they will visit Paris, during
their vacations, in order to keep in
touch with that great school and its
teachers, and to draw inspiration from
its priceless galleries.
The taste of her people, a natural
heirloom, is the soil from which her
foreign trade draws the richest har
vests. France wisely considers it her
mission to supply her people with all
the means that may assi.it them in the
effective cultivation of taste. She
spreads the feast, and bids every one
welcome. Nowhere have I found readier
acknowledgment of their debt to
France than among directors and pro
fessors of the newly developed indus
trial art schools in Germany, as well
as among the heads of her industrial
enterprises. The best designers are
taught in Paris.
Paris abounds in studios where the
industries of the world are supplied
with designs and patterns for the sea
son's work. Manchester, Mulhouse, El
herfeld, Berlin, Lowell and New York
feed on the brain of France, working
through the eye of Paris. The indus
tries of America, so far as taste is
concerned, would be in a sad plight if
put upon their own resources, in ac
cordance with the intentions of recent
legislation, and as partially realized in
the exclusion of foreign fabrics that
compete with home products. French
exhibitions are, to the entire world, ob
ject lessons concerning the attainable.
They usually give a humiliating pang
to the foreign visitors whose eyes are
open, and whose judgment is not dulled
by protectionists conceit. It would be
w jd for Americans, and especially for
those interested in her industries, to
visit Paris next y »ar in large numbers.

New York Post: The miniaturists of
America, with commendable wisdom,
have organized a society for holding
exhibitions each year. Hitherto their
work has not seemed quite to fit in with
any of the regular displays, although
a scattering of tiny heads and even fig
ure* painted with that care and fine
ness peculiar to the art, were to be
found in many of the displays of the
different art societies, whose juries had
a natural Impatience with work ot this
sort, and yet could but treat it with
respect. Again, the growing popularity
of miniatures has naturally increased
the number of those who either regular
ly or at intervals perform this eye split
ting work. Schedules have therefore
been Issued by this new organization,
called the American Society of Minia
ture Painters, for an exhibition of
miniatures to be held at the Knoedler
galleries, beginning Tuesday, January
9th, and closing Saturday; the IVth.
Mr. Josephi is the President of the so
ciety, and W. J. Baer its Secretary. The
jury of selection consists of Lydia F.
Emmet, W. J. Baer, Laura C. Hills, J.
A. Josephi, John A. McDougall and W.
J. Whittemore. Mr. Baer and Mr.

If the "municipal art" movement can
make Pittsburg, Pa., a pretty city,
no other American city need despair of
its looks. The Pittsburg Architects'
Club has taken the matter In hand.
The club asks "for competitive plans
for the architectural improvement of
that portion of the city lying between
the Allegheny and the MonongaheV.

The trustees of the Museum of Fine
Arts in Boston intend to have in the
proposed new museum building a large
picture gallery specially devoted to the
pictures of the modern American paint
ers. The contents of the present Allston
room will form the nucleus of the early
Dismay was lately spread in Parisian
-studios by a sinister report to the effect
that the annual salons would not be
held next year. Artists, both aspiring
and "arrived," who had already set
eagerly to work upon their intended
exhibits, each with the hope of making
a grand hit in 1900, were in consterna
tion. The art section of the Universal,
Exhibition is to be representative of
Uie work achieved in all countries
throughout the century. French paint
ers and sculptors of the latter day fore
see, therefore, that only a very small
number of elect will be asked to exhibit
in the forthcoming World's Fair. If
the salons were to be done away with
next year, where would the great ma
jority hang their pictures and expose
their sculpture? But at least one of
the two chief art societies here has
heard the wail of lamentation which
went up from every studio at
prospect, and has been moved to pity.
The Salon dcs Artistes Francais, uni
versally known still as the "Champs
Elysees," promises to hold its exhibi
tion, as usual, next year, and will wel
come talent quite as generously as
heretofore, a motion to exclude foreign
ers in future having been rejected at
the last meeting by an overwhelming
majority. There are, it Is true, con
siderable difficulties in the way for next
year, but the society undertakes to
overcome them all. The most serious
of these is the fact that, for the present,
the so-called old salon is without house
and home, the Galerie dcs Machines
having now gone the way of* the Palais
de llndustrie. The society hopes, how
ever, by moving further south to be
able to secure a dwelling-place. There
is a vast expanse of waste land out by
Grenelle, which was formerly occupied
by public slaughter-houses, and which
will be leased from the city of Paris,
housing in future both the salon and
the horse show. On this a large build
ing is to be rapidly run up, so as to be
ready by April next, as both the picture
show and the Concours Hippique, will,
owing to the exhibition, open a month
earlier than usual next year. There is
accordingly no time to waste, especially
as the society, in expectation of an ab
normally large artistic output for the
coming season, intends erecting much
more extensive premises than those of
the old Palais de l'lndustrie, which, by
the way, was already about twice the
size of Burlington House. But pictures
and sculpture will certainly not be
wanting to fill the new galleries, how
ever large, as, owing to the determina
tion of the "Champ de Mars" not to
hold its salon in 1900, the "Champs
Elysees" next year will be the only
refuge for the rising artist, and, indeed,
for the many who cannot expect to be
asked to exhibit in the fine-arts section
of the Universal Exposition.—Paris cor
respondence London Telegraph.
Every one has heard of Queen Vic
toria's fondness for the bagpipes, which
taste she acquired in her first visit to
Scotland in 1842; but it is not gener
ally known that the services of two
pipers are usually called into requisi
tion during the breakfast hour. Among
the plate at Windsor Is a statuette in
silver gilt, by Sir Edgar Boehm of
Ross, for many years her majesty's
favorite piper. Apropos of the Queen's
breakfast one ought for a short time
to leave the castle and follow her
majesty to Frogmore, where the meal
is more often taken. Close by the
aviary and the dairy in the grounds of
Frogmore is the Queen's tea house, a
simple little bungalow surrounded by
a veranda and surmounted by a red i
tiled roof. It is connected by an open |
passage with a smaller building which
contains the kitchen. The furniture
of the tea house is all of plain cak and
the walls are covered by an old-fash
ioned French chintz paper representing
flowers climbing on trellis work. In
line weather the breakfast table is set
out beneath the great oak trees which
overshadow the tea house and here her
majesty takes her breakfast attended
by Indian attendants and accompanied
by her grandchildren and the three
favorite dogs, who are, according to
the kennel books, "4n the house." Dur
ing the meal music Is furnished by the
two pipers, who march to and fro ba
neath the trees.
It is within comparatively recent his
tory that some social prophet began
to denounce loudly the reprehensible
habit of promiscuous introduction,
which had grown to be a hydraheadcd
evil, and which resulted in more un
pleasant happenings eodially than
could ever be set down In type. In
elevators, cars, on the street, in
church, in shops, one was thrust into
acquaintance with unnecessary people
through the too overflowing good na
ture of one's friends. Luckily the
fash'on has waned to the relief of
everybody. There is another evil
quite as objectionable and, 4n many
cases where it occurs, it denotes a
woeful lack of ordfinary good breeding
on the part of the culprits, says the
"Criterion." It Is the letter of intro
duction that some friend of yours sends
with a friend of his whom, he wishes to
get rid of. This does not refer to the
letter of Introduction which has a rea
son and an excuse. It is tbe abuse of
the custom which la to be deplored.
Many people scatter letters of intro
duction like chaff before the winds and
after thrusting most undesrtrble ac
quaintances upon- their friends cut tbe
same acquaintances dead and wonder
how decent people can receive them.

this particular form of bad manners
came to light recently. A man pre
sented himself in a woman's drawing
room, sending up the card of a woman
acquaintance. On the back of the
card were scrawled the name and ad
dress of the woman honored by the
visit. She went down prepared to
meet her acquaintance and found a
strange man, who calmly Informed his
surprised hostess that he wished..a
letter x of introduction to one of her
social friends, -as he had some busi
ness deal in operation in which this
friend could assist him. When the
lady coldly refused this slight favor
he drew a letter from his pocket which
had been written by the woman whose
card he had sent up and read a por

him that Mrs. Blank would give him
the required note.—Chicago News.
