opposite side of the hall and invited
ne to enter. I found' myself in what
was evidently an , artist's studio, but
the object in it bore indubitable signs
of.unthrift and neglect. The statu
etts, busts, and uodelt of various
kind,, were covered with dust and
cobwebs, dusty canvasses were faced
to the wall, and atunps of brushes aund
scraps of paper littered the floor. The
only, signs of industry eonbisted of.. a
