Anion;; the modern paintings. the doz
en or more examples of John Kaught's
work should in point of artistic excel
lence as well as local ptlde, be the chief
centre of utlriction. Jlr. Uaught is a
Serantonian who is lapldly coming to
the from umong- the landscape painters
of the day and deserves the support of
all who desire Scranton to take as high
rank in the artistic world as It has in
the World of ?otum'rce. The Highway
(C2) exhibited In the lT.ris salon, depicts
a French road running- up hill. It is
a simple rural scene and owes its chief
chnrni to its illimitable color hi heme,
and denth of poetic InslRht into th
beauties of nature. This work takes
rank at once with the works of many
older and more distinguished artists.

PORTRAIT OF JOSEPH J. ALBRIGHT.
I l.IMI-ll..M .. -.,. WW. ,.. , t .ll.l ..J.,,.l. I t II 1 .!
One of the finest specimens of the modern portrait painter's art. In this region
at least, is the lnagnlllcenl portrait ol' Joseph J. Albright, or Albany, N. Y.. re
cently hung In the Albright .Memoilul library and presented by William T. Smith.
It Is the handiwork or Cliartratt, the French portrait painter, whose peculiar
skill has been employed by prominent personages of this and the Kuropeiiu con
tinent. When It Is remembered that a competent crltluiie might occupy a col
umn In properly describing 11 work ol' Much a muster. It will be recognized thut
any brief criticism here would Hot be at all commensurate with the merit ol the
work. The accompanying cut will, however, give a libit or the nnturul poise.
The painting Is about threo-iunrtor Size and Is the result ol' a long period or
labor. Its 'cost Is unknown. iHit there Is probublv no painting, landscape, murine
or portrait, in this section of the state that represents 11 (treater value, it was
the iilcture'H original who gave Scranton the city's splendid library building.
The palming Is hung at the westerly end of the reading room. Many persons
are visiting the library dally for the express purpose of studying II.
