The Ament ticket has made its ap
pearance. It came out Saturday
night, and yesterday the few who are
interested la its success were dili
gently. peddling it about. It bears
the names of Claudius B. Kinyon and
Joseph H. Kerr for members of the
board of education, and contains the
proposition to change the school law.
Uh the word 'yes'' ippended in
printed letters. Then there is
another set which in addition to the
names contains only tbe word
For,1' or the school law. So that the
names of Kinyon and Kerr are in

issue to carry the law, and this bal

Jacqn Loul David.
In France art, like society, was tot-
fcring to its fall when the revolution
tarat and hastened tbe end. Tbe spirit
of which the revolution was the political
outcome bad also, as in tbe pictures of
urenze and V ten, been working beneath
the surface of the art world, aud with
the fall of tbe empire these aspirations
took definite shape. The art so long ded
icated to whims and caprices of the
aristocracy began, under tbe impulse of
the new environment, to express tbe
sentiments and ideals of the common
people. Cut off from tbe past by the
sword of retribution, in tbo turmoil of
tbe present they sought inspiration for
the future in the great acts of patriot
ism of the Romans. And the oeneral
intelligence of Europe, interested in the
discoveries at Pompeii, gave it form on
its artistic si da
. These feelings and aspirations seemed
to become incarnate in the work of
Jacques Louis David. . A friend of
Robespierre and a leader in tbe revolu
tion party, he on the collapse of tbe
movement narrowly escaped with bis
lira But with the rise of Napoleon,
who appointed bim his painter in chief,

and despite the many phases art has un
dergone and the innumerable cliques
into which painters havo divided in tbe
interval it is still, modified and touched
by reality, a living force in French art
David's conception of pictorial art waa
somewhat cold and lifelecs. . He led his
confreres back not to nature, but to an
tiqmty, as expressed in sculpture, Re
