L. H. HARDING,
A LEAF FROM MY JOURNAL.
1 have just returned from Daven
port and Rock Island, having cele
brated Washington's birthday ill a
very creditable manner itt honor of
his memory. Thi3 morning I visited
Villa dc Chantal at Rock Island, a
very popular school for young ladies.
Sister Borgia escorted me over the
elegant bttilditig which' is conducted
by the Sisters of the Visitation. The
spacious hulls with their broad stair
ways are ftirrtlshed with mission fur
niture ahd the walls arc adorned with
paintings from the masters while the
bookcases are ornamented with min
iature busts of the musicians and
poets. A classical atmosphere -prevailed
over the entire building with
the additional charm of tranquility
only broken now and then, by the
notes of a piano, where some pupil
was struggling with her lesson.
After partaking of luncheon, I cros
sed the river to Davenport and in the
afternoon visited St. Kathcrinc's Hall
an Episcopalian school, under the
supervision of Sister Margaret. The
older girls were playing basket ball
in the gymnasium and I enjoyed
watching them fittly as mUch ds they
enjoyed the game. St. Kathcrinc's
is too well known to make any com
plimentary remarks about its advan
tages. No prettier place could be se
lected for the erection of a boarding
school than Davenport and Rock Is
land. The two cities lie in the loving
embrace of the Mississippi river. Ice
was floating in great blocks to day,
and presented a picturj of cold beau
ty with the leafless trees bordering
the Arsenal, standing gaunt and
ghostlike against the winter sky
1 also passed the old Davenport
homestead where Colonel Daven
port resided and after whom the city
of Davenport b named. It is also
the home of Miss Alice French, the
well known writer whose pen name
is Octave Thanct. Last week I visit
ed the. Academy of the Immaculate
Conception at Davenport, conducted
by the Sisters of Mercy. Opposite
the building St. Luke's hospital is
situated. It is an Episcopalian Insti
tution founded by the late lamented
and much revered Bishop William
Stevens Pcny. I have met many
charming people in Davenport who
have called and extended thicr hos
pitality and a warm welcome to their
city. I am perfectly in love with this
section of the three little cities, with
their schools and libraries. With the
latter have become familiar, in my
daily visits and have found the librar
ians to be ever ready to graciously
In Rock Island I enjoyed a pleas
ant conversation with Robert Rex
dale, the popular editor, writer and
poet. He presented me with a copy
of his latest song, "-In A' Land Of
Flowers and Sunshine," which has
met with great success upon the
While in Chicago I visited the Art
Institute almost daily and the studios
of friends who arc artists. Miss Ka-
therine Hhll Scott has her studio fur
nished with an air of comfort. I
noticed with pride, her diploma from
this Palace of Art, having graduated
in 1901. Miss Scott "is a natural born
artist and while her work covers oil,
watcreolor, crayon and china painting.
her forte lies in portrait drawing and
miniature painting. In this she ex
cels. One of her recent paintings ol
exceptional merit is that of a gentle
man of Virginia, being a life size
painting in oil of a fine type of an old
southern gentleman. Behind the sa
cred portal guarded by the silent
lions on either side the entrance,
l'.ow many beautiful wofks of sculp
ture represent the life work of those
whose lives were wrapt up in their
ideals and love of the beautiful 1 jj$
I received an invitation to attend "
the exhibitions, lectures, musicals and
receptions, held in the Institute for
the season of 1906-7. I love every
thought expressed in art in the build
ing, but my favorite pieces in sculp
ture were, " Diana and The Lion " or
"Intellect Dominating Brute Force,"
by Elwcll F. Brown. The figures ,
represent Diana in her dryad beauty
standing with one hand resting upon
the head of the lion, who raises his
(.'yes to her with an expression of ado
ration and reverence. The lesson is
instantly comprehened by the mo3t
sluggish at learning.
" Nydia," "The Blind Girl of Pom
peii," made famous by Bulwer Lyt
ton in his famous novel, is the work
of Randolph Rogers, an American
sculptor, and the gift of Jane E. Bal
com; this appealed to me strongly
both from an artistic and sentimental
standpoint, as it is impossible for one
of sensitive temperament to read the
story of this beautiful, yet unfort
unate maiden of Pompeii, without
awakening the finer emotions of sym
uathy and tenderness.
" Faith" is one of four figures from
the tomb of General Lamoricicrc in
bronze in the cathedral of Nantes and
is the work of Paul Dubois, a French
The statue of Joan of Arc at Donir
remy, by Henri Michel Antoine
Chapu, is from a marble in the Lux
embourg, Paris. I left my little poem
" FIcur-dc-Lis" at her feet, as it was
the only tribute I could pay to the
memory of this much persecuted yet
saintly maiden of France. ji
"Death Staying The Hand Of The "
Sculptor" i's a work in bronze by
Daniel C. French, an American sculp
tor, born in 1850, and has been pre
sented to the Institute by the sculp-'
tor. It occupies a large panel in the
rotunda second floor, and represents
the Angel of Death, holding a bunch
of asphodels in one hand approach
ing a sculptor .-ho is busily engaged
with his chisei m carving hierogly
phics on a wall. With the other hand
she gently arrests his work and bids A
him come. It is a beautiful concep- J!
tion of death, relieving one of the
darker thoughts that usually accom
pany the silent messenger, as it
plainly reveals that we only lay our
work aside to rest awhile and that
no one is exempt from following the
