The barn is a lonjr affair, the east

It was here the tire started. There
was a ton of hav and some loose

IilMUal Opening Itertiptlrm.
The Blakslee studio, which opened
its doors tc the public today for a 2
days' receptiou, is not only one of the
most artistic buildings in the citv, but
promises to be one of the leading art
centers as well.

convenience ami elegance seldom real

unique Flemish architecture, with
low windows and hood overhanging
The tile roof sloping back on the
same angle as the skylight is relieved
by two dormer windows of latticed
glass. Ihe interior decorations are
in green throughout, except the oflicj
and vestibule, which are a rich red.
The blending of the strong colors in
the reception and art room with the
softer shades of green in the other
room is very effective. The walls of
the art room are of wood covered
with burlap, making an ideal place
for display. The reception room is
furnished in mahogany, the other
room in flemish and golden oak. An
easy stairway leads to the camera
room, a surprise to everyone on ac
count of the size and beauty.
The skylight is a single slant of
ground glass and the room is fur
nished complete with all the accessor
ies needed for high grade photography.
The dressing room opens from this,
and is at once daiHty and inviting.
The four werk rooms are fitted with
every modern convenience, while gas
and electricity make the studio as
brilliant by night as by day.
While providing pictures in style
and finish suittd to all pocketbooks,
Mr. Blakslec will make a specialty of
the best work, and portraits in carbon
and platinum will be a leading feat
ure. Mrs. Blakslee- is prepared to fill
orders for water color portraits, also
miniatures on ivory and porcelain.
The studio will be open for busi
ness Thursday, Nov. 1, and appoint
ments may bo made for sittings on
