Horn to I.rnrn to I.Ike Pictures.
The following suggest ions. If you
please, are not from an artist nor even
from n connoisseur, the writer being
nothing more than an ordinary picture
lover. In general the principle to 1?
followed is to get as much in an atmos
phere of pictures as possible. Always
go to the museums when you are trav
eling, ami if you live near enough
make occasional picture visits to Bos
ton. Chicago or New York. Do not
make the mistake of staying too long
in a gallery. You only tire yourself.
Half an hour Is quite long enough. But
lo not endeavor to look at every pic
ture In the gallery in that time. Ixk
long at a few good ones and let those
von look at be those you like or at least
those which you prefer above the oth
ers. Also ask yourself why you prefer
them. Always get a catalogue. Some
time. the pictures are not marked, and
von as a student want always to know
the painter of your picture. Frederic

At one time not very long ago there
was on the Lancashire coast, near
Lythnn. Eiiclind. a cottnge and boat-
house th.it were made almost entirely
from the remains of a score or so of
whales that had been driven ashore
some years before. The framework of
the edifice consisted wholly of whalc
lone. and the dried skins of the huge
creatures were neatly and strongly fas
tened as a covering for walls and roof.
There is another building of exactly
the frame kind at Peterhead. In Scot
land, and in this case the skulls of the
whales and some of the heavier bones
