Interesting Prodncts of Bnrant

ETCHINGS BY PLOWMAN
Lntlirop Estate to Sell Prints
to Buy Pictures for
Tha nurant Kilns, which are located at
Bedford Villa, N. T., have an exhlbl
tlon of recent work at Mr. Rice's, 81
Irvlmr place. These lclln have very am
bitiously set themselves to accomplish
work of the samo dualities as the ancients
and In many respects have succeeded.
The shapes Invariably are Interesting.
It rain bo seen that the designers have
studied tho chance pieces that figure In
the old Venetian pictures, hut have never
lavishly copied thorn. Tho Blazes take
on many shades of tho admired Persian
blue, and thero aro flno tones of lemon and,
many bowls and Jars In a rich purple.
Among the llnest Hpeclmens on display
ere tho pieces In white (flare, however.
There are not only handsomely designed
groat platters, urns with animal heads In
relief as handles and (treat candlesticks
with corkscrew standards but tho row
colored bas Is allowed to show through
' the whlto jflaie here and there after tho
manner of tho Orientals.
ntchinns by Plonmsn,
Tho etchings of George T. Plowman
now on view In tho Brown-nobertnon
print galleries at 707 Fifth avenue are
always fortunate In subject. A large
haro of nn etcher's success lies In his In
stinct for a proper theme. Two men may
Co a tree by a wall and one will choose
just tho aspect that Is untulted for tho
copper plate and tho needle; the other
will take It from an angle that almost In
sures a successful etching In Itself.
Mr. riowman has this feellns for sub
ject to a marked degree. Ho has trav
elled much and his plates reflect euch In
teresting spota at Prague, Vlterbo, Italy:
Btrasburg, Mexico!!, Mexico, and Taneull
Hall. Boston. One of the best Is of the
picturesque and little known Maleon de
Balzac In PaMy, Paris.
"Somewhere between tho extremes rep
resented by Whistler and Brangwyn. Lee
Hankey Is making a place for himself,"
his cataloguer says. In his exhibition,
now on In the Braus Galleries, 717 Fifth
avenue, tho Influences of both of these
better known etchers may be traced, but
happily he keeps his plates nearer In sizo
to Whistler's than to Brangwyn's.
Ho has experimented In many directions
and In many styles and always with cred
itable, although not nrllllant workman
hip. His figure In "The Cave" Is done
with a classicism that Is essentially Brit
ish, reminding ono of the figures of Leigh
ton. Landscape! Most Characteristic.
Of his landscapes the "Salnt-Valcry-ur-Somme."
the "Abbeville" and the
"Hillside" are most characteristic.

Thirtieth street, until December 17.
Among the paintings are several that have
to do with Laurence Washington, one of
the forefathers of George Washington.
The tomb of Laurence Washington Is
hown. with the stars upon the Washing
ton coat of arms, which are thought by
some to have suggested tho stars for our
national flag. There are also many
ketches of Venetian and Sicilian scenes.
Joseph l'ennell speaks In n simple and
fine way In regard to his Oreclan ex
periences. "I went to Greece for two reasons,"
raid he. "first, 1ceauso I wanted to see
Greece and what remained of Its glory
to see If the greatest work of the rast
Impressed me as much as the greatest
work of the present and to try to find
out which was the greater, the more In
spiring. And second, I went became I
was told by a Boston authority that I
was nothlns but a ragtime sketcher,
couldn't nee Greek art and couldn't draw
It If I did.
Knrh a Character of Its Own."
"I have been there, and did what I saw
In my own way. I drew the things that
Interested me : and It was and Is a great
delight to tne to t told by those who
hae some of .hem spent their live
studying Greeks and Grew that I have
given th character ot the country.
"What Impressed me most was the great
feeling of the Orecks for site In placing
their temples and shrines in the landscape
n that they not only becamo a part of It
hut It leads up to them. And though the
amn architectural forms were used, each
temple was so placed that It told from
afar, by sea or land, a goal for pilgrims,
a shrine for worshippers to draw near to,
and et each had a character of Its own;
always the same, yet ever differing.
"I know, I am sorry to say, little of pro
portion, of scale, of heights, of length
but what I saw with my own eyes was the
way these monuments were part of the
rnuntry , never (.tuck about anything, but
always composed and always different,
and they were built with grand Ideas of
i (imposition, lmpreselveness and arrange
ment." finest Work of Ilia Itecent Years.
It Is a pleasant 'fact to record that the
lithographs that Mr. l'ennell made of the
Greek temples, which are now to be seen
in the naileries of Keppcll & Co., nre the
finest woik of his recent ears. Evidently
these, noblest monuments of history pro
foundly stirred him, and these lithographs.
In consequence, aro deeply terlous works

first editions of too famous tooks have
been arranged by Charles Scrlhner's irons
Into nn attractive and lnstructlvo ex
hibition. Itnro Imprints nguro In It of the
'Book of Books," the Holy Bible, of
Shakespeare's plays, of "Don Quixote,"
Voltaire, Mollere, I'lcero. Frolssart. Sir
John Suckling, Carlyle, Itossettl, Cowper
and other great nanus.
Ono of the Hlblea Is the Grafton and
Whitchurch Imprint, done partly In Paris
and partly In Ixindon In 1539. This Is tho
raro first edition of Cranmers, or "Tho
Hole Bible of the Largyest ' olume,"
which Thomas Cromwell as tho King's
vice-regent In an Injunction to the clergy
ordered to be "set up In some convenient
place wythln tho said church that ye have
cure of, where as your parishioners may
most commodtously resorte to the same
and reade It."
Bonner, archdeacon of Leicester, at that
tlmo Ambassador from the Court of Kmc-
land to Francis I rendered essential ser
vice In the isue of this edition and was
able to afford protection to Coverdale and
Grafton. In December, 1538, the printing
was stopped, and the French King ordered
all the copies already printed to bo de
livered up. All the copies that the au
thorities could lay their hands on were
destroyed, but instead of strictly obeying
orders the Lieutenant sold four great dry
vats full to a haberdasher, by whom they
were conveyed to England.
Tho fourth edition of "Mr. William
Shakespeare's Comedies, Histories and
Tragedies' Is demented to tho most
Noble and Incomparable pair of Brothrvn,
William, Earl of Pembroke, and Philip,
Earl of Montgomery," and there aro In
serted In tho volume two original letters
by these famous men. William Herbert,
tho Eurl of Pembroke, according to
Shakespeare biographers, was the "Mr.
W, II.," the "onlle begetter" of the bon
nets. Most of the volumes of this collection
have Insertions of autograph Utters by
the authors, or corrections by them, or
other features of special Interest. The
1738 edition of Voltalro'a works, printed
In Amsterdam, was tho copy given by
Voltaire to his friend Helvctius, tho
famous author and philosopher, and has
been corrected throughout either by Vol
taire himself or his secretary.
Buskins first edition of tho "Stones of
Venice" is tho copy given by him to
Thomas Carlyle, and Thomas Carlyle'B
Sartor Jlosartiis Is one of a dozen pri
vately printed copies of this work, printed
two years earlier than tho nccepted first
edition, for presentation purposes. In It a
letter from the Sage of Chelsea Is In
serted, also one from his friend James
Speddlng, discussing "Sartor Besartus."
A supplementary exhibition to these
hundred books has collected sets of first
editions of Milton's prose works and com
plete sots of Coleridge, Swinburne and
The sot of Milton s proso works consists
of forty-one volumes, and is raid to be
the finest collection In tho world, hnvtng
been brought together by nn admirer of

has scoured the whole of England. Many
of these works wer privately printed In

more pleasant for the children nil to ha.i

Is beside thu question.
"The Montessorl method has to dal
with developing the child along the lines

Is not necessary that the children play In

The recital, which was arranged by tho

H wiis peculiarly fitting that the fast

Jfcprosentaiives' Wives Win in
Skirmish With Women
CALLS WILL TIE JtKTUUXKl)
Now Senators' Wives Will Start
a IJnttlo for ltccognitinn
Wahimngtos, Dec. 7. Tho wives of the
Itepresentntlvcs In Congress have como
out victorious In the social skirmishing
some critical souls have called It a social
war that has been going on In Washing
ton since the Incoming of tho Wilson Ad
ministration. Tho women of tho Cabinet
havo capitulated and now calls will bn
returned rtgardless of the previously an
nounced stand of tho Inner circle against
the Congnss group.
With the expanding of the Congress cir
cle until the nn nibershlp of tho House
now totals l.'l.l, tho burden on tho Cabinet
t Ircln has grown constantly greater. Old
tlmo Miciiil rubs required that all calls
made upon a woman of the Cabinet by
the wives, sisters and daughters of Hep
lcsentatlves muit bo returned.
In the days when the Housn numbered
not more thun SHO or more members, with
salaries of only $S,000 a year, so that
In almost a majority of instances Repre
sentatives came to Washington unaccom
panied by the women of their families. It
was a simple mutter.
To-ti.iy It is different. There nre more
tb.in "no families of Representatives n
the swim nf Washington tn-d.iy. Never
theless tho womi n of tho Congress clrolo
wt ro Insistent.
As soon ns tho Intention of the Cabinet
women not to return Congress calls was
proclaimed last spring the Representa
tives' wives sotiiulfd tho call to nrms.
Tho pro and cons of th" argument us
to whether or not tho Cabinet wives
should call have waged ever since.
The proclamation of peace was fur
nished to-day by Sits. William J. B'yan,
tho titular head of the Cabinet social cir
cle. Sirs. Bryan said:
"Owing to recent dLscusslon regarding
the returning of calls by ladles of tho
Cablnit tho following announcement Is
"Speaking for tho ladlts nf th" Cabinet,
who rtgret the erioneous Impiesslon
created by an article appennn in a
local paper last spring In regard to their
attitude In the matter of returning calls
mule upon them by the wives of members
of the House of Representatives, I wish
to say that thty intend to return, us far
a possible, all such calls."
Slc.innhll" there Is another battle brew
Inc The Senate Is preparing to demand
recognition of Its ofllclaJ precedence over
The wives of Senators were in close,
nccoid with tho wives of memlKrs of the
House In their contention for social recog.
nltlon. Now with the easy victory
won by the Congren party they too are
dlspo'iil to enter the fray
They will thniand that tho Senate be ac
corded precedenco by reason of the
fact that It outranks tho Cabinet In
seniority ns a national Institution.
Tho question of Senatorial precedenco
over the Cabinet was recently raised by
Senator Bacon of (Jeorgla, and some
