Chauncey M. Dcpew, ntuncitcally

Mabel Garrison of tho Metropolitan
Grand Opera? sang a bit of opera and

And then William JI. English, president

so on and on,
For this year's birthday party the
guest of honor had chosen to speak on
"Lessons for tho Future from tho Past,"
extracts from which nro printed upon

the deep, powerful, pleasant voice,
ranged over an engrossed audience,

and eyed him suspiciously.

"That's correct," Mr. Depew replied.

And after hearing tho 86 year old
voice of Mr. Depew, as strong now as
ever, even members of the Montauk Club,
who could hark back to the time when
the first birthday dinner was given for

sharing the latter explanation because
of tho records of I'eeksklll.

,,s Immensely pleased to have back Its
International Art Show, and everj body
goes about saying that tho nineteenth
repetition of this event, now Just opened
j nt the Carneglo Institute, Is greater than
njr of Its predecessors. Whether this bo
quite so, tru o4an loyal PlttsburanrtfjthlnltJ
or not, tho exhibition is interesting, ami
remains, as before, the best exposition
, of academical art workB anywhere of-
I fared In this country.
The exhibition Is In tho clrcumstancesi
gratlfylngly International. It seamed
,aat BPrlng as though the dllllcultlcB of
transportation would provont Its being
International at all. France, tho ac-
knowledge stronghold of tho arts. Is but
feebly represented, and Germany, of
cours, not ,t nil. Lngland, however,
.sends over many striking canvases, nnd
more of MS carrIca M tl)0 honors maone
tho nations. America Is very well repre-
.nt,i ,.nri n i. mnnnni it, -it h
younger Americans havo sent In their
most ambitious projects In competition
for tll0 Carneglo. honors nnd prizes.
However, It would be Idlo to pretend
that any of them outshine tho forceful
productions of Sir, William orpen,
Georgo W. Lambort, Luclen Simon,
Zuloasa. L. SIdonler or D, Y. Cameron
The list of the honors reads, ns It 'til
ways docs, a little haltingly. There aro
so many sldo Issues' Involved In tho
giving of prizes that no two persons
ever agrco upon ihem and a curtain
amount of dissatisfaction Is alwajs ex
cited by them. The gold medal, with
J1.500, goesthls year to the American
veteran Abbot II, Thayer for his "Young
Woman In Olivo Plush." Tho silver
medal, 'with 1,000. goes to the English
man. '-Algernon Talmadge, for "By tho
Cornish Seas," and Walter Ufer, an
American, wins third place and $500,
with "Suzanna nnd Her Sisters." ono of
his Indian studies. 'Honorable mention'
was awafded Robert II Spencer, Georgo
J. CoaHs and Frederick A. Bosley
Mr. Thayer's prize will be applauded
by painters, as he has always been a
painters' ralntcr. Tho sincere portion of
the nubile, the pdrtlon that Is not stanw
peded by fashionable clamor, win uc
somewhat mystified. There Is no ques
tion that this artist In his admiration
for tho old masters has assumed some-thlng-
ot their-nobility of stylo, but In his
determination to be-noble the artist gets
most of his grandpess from other pic
tures father "than from his experiences
with life. A foreigner knowing nothing
of Mr. Thayer would Imagine this prize
winner to be a mere copy of some old
master, possibly Bronzlno. Reminiscent
LtylcB always meet with contemporary
RaUicr more worthy prize material
are Mr. Ufer's "Suzanna and Her Sis

of a prize to give. He found his
