Dainty Art of Miniaturing Now the

SOME ABE NOTED BEAUTIES

To posfess e. miniature portrait ot her
lovely self is to-day the dear amoltlon of
every fashionable woman. T&e prefent
strong revival of Interest In dainty pictur
ing, vies with that of the years when the
world rejoiced to point Ha toes In glgucs,
gavottes and minutes; when powder and
patches, duels and the vapors absorbed
the gay Intelligences of modish folk.
This most subtle form of art, delicate, con
vincing, lasting, practical, Is equally In
place in a gallery or a lover's heart-pocket.
A collection of noted beauties now In
the possession of the artist Mr. Robert
Keeling, of Washington, Ehows as perfect
a "dream of fair wumen"asany midsummer
mood could desire, and Includes the lovll
est belles of New York, Washington, and
Baltimore. "Varied poems of grace and
beauty; ballades of form, rondeaus of tint,
vllanelles of tone, bound harmoniously
In gold and pearls.
It Is claimed that miniature work' Inevi
tably idealizes a blessing If done with a
foundation of Interesting fact for would
It be kind to transmit even pictured femi
nine wrinkles, or carry down prominent
collarbones to posterity? These are among
the truths the world recognizes as best
not told. The artist alluded to, however.
Is of faithful tendency, so it Is pcrbaps
fortunate that In the case of the subjects

POEM IN ROSK-COLOR.
Mrs. Burko Roche, of New Tork, daugh
ter of Frank Work, and one of the most ad
mired American women, Is portrayed In a
Doucet gown of black gau7e and rose
colored satin. Her wavy brown hair is
dono at the crown of her shapely head
and caught by three glittering diamond
stars. Her bodice is cut English fash
ion, very low, revealing her exquisite
throatandshouldors. A ropeof pearls ofthc
costly pattern, so much affected now by the
wealthiest women, encircles her neck and
falling below her waist is caught up and
fastened at the bust with a diamond brooch.
Mrs. Don Cameron, of Washington, for
merly Miss Sherman, appears in misty
draperies ot white tulle, without jewels,
a vision of simplicity and loveliness, a
"most bewitching she," for whom "Loves
In riot of light, roses and vaporous blue"
would be fitting surroundings.
Miss Lucille Folk, of l'nltlmore, the
rare and radiant maiden at whose shrine
nil eligible Narragansett has worshipped
this season, is a typical blonde. Iler fea
tures are charmingly regular, withOJt a
suggestion of severity. Her eyes are
blue, her complexion of adorable pink and
wblteness. The decolietto white mull
frock and hnge white Gainsborough hat
laden with plumes and blush roses she
wears lend a most picturesque element to
her portrait. About her fair throat Is that
badge of the smart set a rope of pearls.
Mrs Carroll Mercer, of Washington, for
merly Mrs Turpln, Is painted In the purely
classical manner her Grecian beauty de
mands Her dark hair is arranged In an
tique style A white tunic displays her
snowy neck, and draped below Is a quaint
mantle of velvet lined with lavender. A
marble column and distant scenery In the
background bint of that part of the old
world of which she seems the type.
TWO WASHINGTON BEAUTIES.
Mrs Stllson Hutching, of Washington,
nee Keeling, Is painted profile, showing
faultless outlines, with Just such haughti
ness In all lovely canes as the grand
dames of past centuries boasted. Her su
perb shoulders are turned lo the world;
her perfectly shaped eyes are of velvety
brown; her golden hair Is drawn high in
a shining coll and intertwined with a via.

country the world over. Her portrait Is
profile, and yields to that crucial test de
lightfully. Her eyes are deep blue, bcr
hair light In-own, and her expression most
winning. Who Is It says, "Her faco Is
fairer than the hawthorne white, when all
aflowcr In May the hedgerows stand?"
Her airy costume of white organdie Is fin
ished by a broad brimmed bat, caught up
with plumes, and sho wears a corsage bou
quet ot spring blossoms.
It has been requested that these portraits
bo exhibited at the Atlanta Exposition ba.
f ore they are returned to their fair owners.
Mr. Keeling is a great great grandson ot
Sir Robert Feale, a son of Dr. Keeling, for
merly rector of Trinity Church, Washing
ton, and a well known society man. Tall,
slender, he Is gifted with a distinctive ele
gance of manner, delicate as the skill,
strong as the value of his art, and although
only 31 years of age, is already widely
Mr. Keeling is a Baltlmorean by birth,
cosmopolitan by residence, an actor of note,
having 'appeared three years with Daly's
Company, with Mantell and Robert Bil
liard. He is the possessor of an excellent
tenor voice, and is a musical genius. At
the urgent request of friends, be has left
tho stage to give up his whole career to art.
He is a pupil of tho celebrated Baroness
St- Mart, of Paris, and his handling of ex
pression, flesh tint and texture Is said
by critics to suggest tho best of the mas
ters ZInko, Cosway and Isaby.

pearl-embroidered gauze. Her red-biown

the colrfures of olhir women, which she
wisely affects. Her dart blue eyes are

Mrs. Henry May, of Washington, nee
Coleman, appears In right royal style in a
gold frame, surmounted by a coronet. The
portrait Is full race with chin slightly
raised, and at once suggests the rrincess of
Wales. Her dark hair Is done high with
a single curl on thelow forehead, and on her
brow rests a tiara ot diamonds. A dccol
lette bodice of magnificent pearl embroid
ered lace discloses the stately neck and
shoulders; a collarette ot pearls with dia
mond clasps encircles her throat.
Carelessly throwD about her figure Is
an emerald green velvet cloak having a
broad collar of Russian sable. The back

Until some recent discoveries by Prof.
Sauesler, of Ycvcy, Switzerland, it was

In a shallow Inlet Prof. Sausslcr found
a queer arrangement of strings In the wa
ter which demanded examination. View
ing tLe affair from a dl6(aEce with a water
teletcope he saw that some fishes, wldch
bad by the usual painful method gained
possession of several fragments of fishllne,
were passing them around two sticks
thrust Into the water by some fisherman
When the strings were strung, the stakes
were wedged apart by pilingstones between
them so as to tighten the strings, three or
four fishes rolling a stone along the bot
tom with their noses
The operation was necessarily slow.
The professor vatcLed it at Intervals for
two or three days. Flrally, when all was
ready, the largest fish seized a stick or bone,
and, using It as a plectrum, t wangled the
strirgs with it, while the other fishes gath
ered around to hear the music. Of course,
there was noLc, as the submerged strings
refused to sound.
After several trials, the fishes tore up'
their water harp in dlfgusr. They had
probably caught tlieir idea from AIrr.ce

So many Instances arc Known of the Im

session of the same trait by fishes should
not surprise one. Bob Jones, a prominent
Louisville boniface, has a dog, for in

has taught bis chums the same taste, for
a purpose which now appears.
The other day a tin full of Leer was given
to Spot, who carefully lugged it away to
the woodshed, instead of lapping it ep at
once. Investigation revealed tbefacttnat.

upon two blocks to form a tar.
Ranged on the other side were half a
dozen dugs, who had come with bones,
rags, ard bits of biscuit to buy a drirk.
So many laps were allowed m return for
each article, and other dogs kept coming.
By and by Spot, teeing his tin nearly
empty, dashrtl back into the saloon with
It, dipped it full of water from a pail on
the floor and returned. But the first dog
