SAVING A WORK OF ART.
Ingenious Scheme of a Restorer ol
An instance of the ingenuity exer
dsed by restorers of damaged master
pieces of painting is afforded by the
rescue of a famous painting now own
ed by the widow of the late John Hay,
secretary of state
Mr Ha had a Madonna by Botticel
11 which was painted on a wooden
panel at least 400 years ago. The
wood had begun to crack, and it was
feared that the painting would be
ruined, but a restoier was found who
said he couid save it
The mst step was to paste thin strips
of tissue paper on the face of the pic
tare, pressing the paper into the un
even suifxce of the paint Layers weie
added until a thick body of paper con
eealed the picture
Then the picture was turned over,
and the lestoier began to sandpaper
the board away After many months
Of careful work he had all the wood
removed, and nothing but the paint ad
hered to the paper A piece of linen
canvas was then glued to the pain.
and the work of removing the pape..
from the front of the picture was un
dertaken It required nearly a year tc
complete the work, but when it wa*
done the painting was left in shape tc
last another four centuries.Chicagt
An Example of Daring.
During the hottest fighting in th(
Shipka pass the leading battalion of the
Russian General Dragomiroff's divisior
Meoiled before a hailstorm of Turkist
bullets The general was a very stout
person and had the appearance of
peaceful German professor But whei
he saw his men recoil he dismounted
and walked slowly to and fro along
ridge swept by the enemy's bullets
He was a hundred yards in advance 01
the men, occupying the position the3
had abandoned. After staying there
for awhile without being touched hi
shouted back to the battalion- "What
are you doing, you geese? Did yot
think there was danger here' I don'1
find any!" The men responded with
roar of cheers, doubled up to him anc
charged so fiercely that the Turks wer
forced to retreat.
An Unexpected Conclusion.
A mistress was summoned in a Lon
don court for having dismissed a serv
ant girl without due notice. The de
fendant pleaded that the servant was
so voracious that she could not keer
her in food. The judge after hearing
the evidence inquired of the defendant
"Will four and sixpence a week keep
her?" "Not nearly," replied the lady
"Will 6 shillings?" continued the judge
"No that would not keep her," replied
the defendant, feeling that in th
Judge's hands her case was gaining
trength. "Now take care," said the
judge, "and answer cautiously. Will 7
shillings?" "It takes 8," said the de
fendant "Very well," said the judge
"Then you must pay her 8 shillings a
week as board wages for one month."-
