Among the several clever exhibitions of
Sewell Collins' skill at the Newspaper
Artists' and Loan Exhibit none expresses
gayer, or more delightful pencil humor
than that which shows Sara Bernhardt,
"the divine," aa Hamlet. "B," says He
well, stands for Bernhardt. The exposi?
tion of his meaning Is given clearly In
the accompanying verse written beneath
, In "B" a moral we express.
The versatile achieve success;
And Bornhardt does the best she can
To make "the garment make a man.
Whatever at the exhibit bears the name
of Herrington Fitzgerald is easily Identi?
fied, his style in tone and color being un?
mistakable. One of his landscapes, "The
fiusquehana River," has a special charm.
In the cloud effects, the margin of the
stream and the background.
Every visitor to the exhibit pauses to
look at "An Only Child," a quaint and
original conception of Elizabeth Shlppen
Green. Tho only child, like Alexander,
surfeited with all her world has to give.
Is evidently displeased because she has
come to the end of the list. With toys
and dainties galore she stands looking
one In the eyes, ? forlorn little figure,
puckering, down-drawn lips and wrlnk
llrx brow on which "discontent" Is
... </rit In large characters. Evidently Eliza?
beth Shlppen Creen, knows the ways and
the moods of small-sized humanity.
Ii ife not often that such beauty of life
and motion can be put Into figure as
C. H. Wright hns succeeded In endow?
ing the young girl In his "Wave" with.
The supple grace of girlhood, with the
seduetion of Its beauty and vivid life, has
been rendered with a strong fidelity and
realism that makes Instant and insistent
appeal for recognition nnd acknowledg?
ment, and gets what It demands.
The name of M. Ida Is discernible upon
? sketch which looks like a fragmentary
poem and Is simply called "The Old
Cabin." An air of desolation, ? story of
emntlness and desertion, a hint of former
laughter and happiness?in short, a. little
history In itself?stnjids out in the few
nervous strokes made by a purposoful
hand that knows lt.s calling.
Clinton Peters has a fine picture of child?
hood and animal life In his "Friends,"
representing a golden-haired girlie clasp?
ing a black cat In her arms. The peach
Uke bloom of the Innocent face, presFed
against the silky blarik fur brings at once
to mind the skill of the artist who has
produced such an attractive effect largely
by force of contract.
"A Japanese Evening," hy o. Hornby,
in Its suggestive realism. Is matched by
a "Duse" et E. H.<Miner. Only Mr. Minor
hasn't a,.bit. of Verse to emphasize and
completa ihn poso of the disciple O?
Two sketches "by Mr. C. J. Rostrup, one.
of Miss Eugenie Taylor and another
?which he calls "The Fair Pedestrian"
are excellent examples of his best style.
Miss Taylor's picture Is encircled by
a wreath of American beauty roses, the
Richmond debuatante's flower.

TO ELECT A
Board of Visitors Meet at the
FINE MEN MENTIONED
Dr. Bassett Moore, Presidents Dabney
nnd Venablo and Colonel Miles
Moore in Several Cities.
To-morrow the Board of "Visitors of tho
University of Vrginla will meet at the
University for tho purposo of electing tho
first president of the Institution.
Mr. Jefferson, the fnther of tho Uni?
versity, was strongly opposed tn the oflico
of presidency. He believed that the best
results could be accomplished by having
as tho heael of the school a member of
the faculty, who should ho elected by
themselves, and to which all members of
the. faculty might aspire and In turn bo
elected. His-Idea was that tho executive
head of the Institut I?>n should also teach
nnd probably ho ?lid n?>t foresee the timo
when the great cchools of tho land would
bei rich enough to employ a la.rgo number
of teach??rs each, and that their manage?
ment would take the? entire time of a
man experienced In business matters. Mr,
Jefferson was noted for his desire for a
elemocratic school, a.nd ho conceived tho
rotation In oflico the surest way to bring
about this end.
Names Prominently Mentioned,
The most prominently mentioned per?
sons In connection with the presidency
are Dr. John Bassett Moore, professor
of economics. Columbia University. New
York city; President Charlee W. Dabnny,
of the University of Tennessee; President
FrR.uk Venable, of the University of North
Carolina, nnd Colonel George W. Miles,
of Rad forth The latter gentleman hn-s
addressed to the Board of Visitors a de?
fense of himself, which Is said by the sev?
eral close friends of his In Richmond
who hn.vp seen It to be a pnper of great
power. The writer claims that he has
never been a candidate for the position.
and conclusively shows this, according to
those who hav" seen his communication,
which Is said to be of considerable length.
Tho presidency is sa.ld by many to lie
between Dr. Moore and President Dabney,
though on account of the number nf gen?
tlemen whose names may bo proposed.
It le simply Impossible, to forecast with
any degree of confidence who will be tho
choice of the board.
Tho Richmond alumni decided not to
make a recommendation, after a preamble
In which Implicit confidence In tho Judg?
ment of tJii? bipart? wns expressed.
