Mrs. Duncan, of Louisville Ky., who Is
In Richmond ns the guest of Mrs. J.
Hall Moore, will appear at tho Wo?
man's Club to-morrow afternoon, when
she will talk on "Plantation Reminiscen?
Mrs. Duncan's manner Is most attrac?
tive, and she has a way of directly ad?
dressing her hearers that makes a vivid
and lasting Impression. Her subjects
puggests everything that Is suggestive
and original In the way of characteriza?
tion and description.
Mr. Elliott Dalngerfleld's appearanco
at tho club last week gavo a great and
distinct pleasure to all who heard and
met him. His talk on "Our Own Art and
Its Beginning?," and In outlining the de?
velopment of American art he made It
distinctly traceable tr? Venetian Influ?
ence, tho Venetians being the first to in?
troduce ensy, ?graceful examples of pic?
From the Dutch masters as lunds
caplstn Mr. Dalngerflold said that John
Constable and Richard Parks Bonnlng
ton became the fathers of natural art In
England. Their paintings, hung in French
salons, wrought a revolution In French
art, which up to this time had been both
still and formal.
Reverting to "our own art," Mr. Daln
gerfleld spoke eloquently of the great
strides made In tho last twenty-five years
by American artists. Tho uplifting of
art standards nnd tho diffusion of art ed?
ucation Is shown everywhere In America
by the character of the pictures hung in
public and private galleries; by the Inte?
rior and exterior docoratlone of public
an?! private buildings; by the art exhib?
its which are held In all American eitlen
of Importance, and by th? art schools of
this country, which are taking rank with
thoso of Europo.
In tho classification of American mas?
ters of nrt, Mr. Dalnjjerfleld gavo to
George Inno* tho honor of Its father?
hood. He mentioned A. H. Wynant and
Homer Martin aa the foremost American
landscapo painters, and John Letargo as
standing ahead In figure work. He drow
a clear distinction between American ar?
tists, puro and simple, and those, who,
like Sergeant and Abby, are moro Euro?
pean than American by association and
Mr. Dalngerfleld remained over In
Richmond as the gueat of Mrs. Clayton
G. Coleman until Wednesday evening.
He was the guest of honor at Informal

One of the most enjoyable and artistic
musicales over presented In Richmond
took place Friday evening In the Assem?
bly Hall of Murphy's Hotol Annex, It
was participated In lyr somo of the very
beet professional talent of the city.
Tho following artists, whose repututlon
In Richmond Is too well known to need
comment, took part In tho entertainment:
Mra. John Murphy, Mrs. Jennie Yeamans,
Misses Powell, Cofer and Morton, Messrs,
Trlbbett, Dunbar, Keenati, Hunter, Cun?
nlnghum and Prof, Cosby.
The Assembly Hall was packed to Its
utmost capacity by a highly cultured and
appreciative audience. Owing to the
crowded condition of the hall, moro than
a hundred friends of the singers had to be
turned away, being unable to gein ad?
mittance, The splendid audience present
spurred tho performers on to their best
efforts. Every number was enthusastl
caiiy encored. Tho artists all showed
splendid taste In the selection of ther
songs and recitations. Each participant
deserves special mention for the part ren?
dered towards a delightful evening of mu?
sic and entertainment.
After the singing of "Gcod Night" by
the First Baptist Church Quartette, the
audlenoo repaired to an adjoining hall,
where refreshments were served.
The entertainment was under the man?
agement of Miss Louise O'Connor, who
was ably seconded in her successful ef?

A Great Triumph.
The New York Times says:
The unveiling at Baltimore of the bronze
"The Spirit of tho Confederacy" was a
great triumph for tho sculptor. Air. F.
Wellington Ruckstuhl. Ho was not only
applauded, but mentioned In the local pa?
pers, contrary to the practice In many
cities whero the chairman of the monu?
ment committee Is the great man of the
occasion. The group, consisting of a
winged genius of herolo size catching up
a wounded Confederate and holding In
her left hand a laurel wreath, stands on
Mount Royal plaza. On the front of the
podest?! Is written: "Gloria Alctls?To the
Soldiers and Sailors of Maryland In the
service of the Confederato States of
America, 1861-1865." On the nort aide:
"Glory Stands Boslde Our Grief?Erected
by Maryland Daughters of tho Confedera?
cy, February, 1903." The west side has the
Italian motto of Maryland: "Fatti mas
chu, parole remine." Deeds are of men;
words are of women, and on tho east
aide: "Deo Vindice." In God, the Avenger,
It will be rememberod that ? painted
representation of Mr. Ruckstuhl's "Spirit
of tho Confederacy," draped with Con?
federato flags, was placed by Mr. J. Ross
Jones above tho entrance to the hnll
of the Masonic Temple, where the re?
cent Confederate Bazaar was held.
The artist's conception Is beautiful, and
wherever it has been seen has fired tho
southern hoart and awakened southern
patriotism. There Is Just ono thing,
which, In view of the results of the Just
finished bazaar, Is considered to be hardly
in keeping with the other details of so
exquisite a monument, and that is the
Maryland motto Inscribed upon It: "Deeda
are of men; word are of women."
Tho Bouthern woman, looking at tho
finished achievement of the Davis Me?
morial, which they have brought about
through unparalleled energy and devo?
tion of purpose, feel that they have the
right to be taken Into account through
tholr deeds as. well as by tho inspiration
of their words. It Is believed that never
In tho history of orgonlzed efforts among
Confederato workers has there been one
whloh has moved ao unitedly and har?
moniously to an appointed end as the ba?
zaar of April, 1903. Tho ladles who led
It and served In It are best pleased of all
to look back and remember that union
and good fellowship characterized every?
thing done from beginning to ending. It
was Justly characterized In Us lnclploncy
as necessarily "a hard pull, a long pull
and a pull all together." When the ne?
cessity for pulling together ceased, be?
cause success had come, workers, when
they knew their good fortune had the
right to cay In parting, with "Tiny Tim":
imparted to seekora of it for the asking, SMART DRESS?
ERS always want to know what is tho LATEST PROPER
THING TO WEAR, also to be shown tho NEATEST
IDEAS OP DRESS. You oan have both of these re?
quirements supplied here, as a WELL? SELECTED STOCK
not only appeals to you, but can meet every want you may
