Augustus Thomas, while discussing
the prevailing emptiness of New York
theatres this season, recalled a trip'
which Bill Nye and a fellow humorist
made through Illinois. Nye's com
panion, looking through the peephole
of a village theatre curtain one night,
"remarked: "Bill, the house is just
about empty." "I don't see why," re
plied Bill, "we've never been here be
fore." The formation of the Atlantic & Pa
cific Transport company of New Jer
sey, with capital stock of $15,000,000,
for the purpose of building 15 ships
for trade in the Panama canal, does
seem to bear out the suggestion that
ship subsidy is absolutely essential to
the carrying trade of America. Where
there are commercial opportunities
there will be capital to finance the en
terprises without pulling the purse
strings of the people.

been discovered that "Uncle Shelby"
would not talk, it was thought advisa
ble to see if he could eat.
Invited to the party were political
foes to the republican party, hench
men of Cullom, color bearers for De-
neen, and lackeys for Lorimer.
The public was forewarned that no
fistic encounters need be anticipated.
The advance notices stated it would be
purely social." ' .
"This was a mistake" the "SDrinr-
fleld Register suggests, "a serious mis
take. An opportunity for enlighten

have been a program of addresses, in

The Argus Daily Short Story
An Instructor in Painting By Toin'F. Brown.
Copyrighted. 1911, by Associated Ujerary Press.
During the summer of 19 Constance
Phillips, an art student, chose the
coast of Maine for a field In which to
paint pictures. There 4s an island on
that coast which has been made pre
eminent among its neighbors by a
celebrated authoress, who located one
of her' stories there. Harriet Beecher
Stowe's Tearl of 'Orr's Island" has
been read by millions of ber fellow
coantrymen, thus familiarizing tttem
with at least the name of the locality.
Miss Phillips, being alone, stopped at
a small botel near the house in which
Mrs. Stowe wrote her story. In the
morning after breakfast . she would
take her artist's paraphernalia and
start out in search of a scene to trans
fer to canvas. But she found nothing
of the marine order that pleased her
more than the view looking eastward
from the lower end of the island. De
scending an incline, she found herself
Just above a rocky shore overlooking
a strip of Casco bay. There she set
up her easel and, embracing in her
subject a bit of the rocks and a bit of
the ocean, began her worfe
Constance painted all the morning.
uui uniuiiuuaieiy oer nuimj iu ituy
fer to canvas what she saw was not orj
a high order. Like many aspirants for
success in art, shj felt it, but was un
able to express it. What she had
placed on the canvas disappointed her.
She was looking at her work ruefully
when she heard a step behind her and,
turning, saw a man descending through
the wild grass and weeds. As he pass
ed her he lifted his cap and, casting a
glance at her picture, paused, looking
from It to Its subject.
"You have selected quite an attrac
tive view," he said. "Your discrimi
nation in this respect is proved by
your having chosen the best there is
"I fear it is all discrimination," said
Constance, viewing her work lugu
briously. "You mean that you are not gifted
with the artistic touch?"
"I fear I am not."
"A good deal depends upon that
which for the want of a better wovd
I shall can the trickery of art There
are all sorts of methods of producing
effects which, though In themselves
mechanical, tend to successful paint
ing. Judging from this bit of work, I
fancy you have something to learn in
"For instance, this bit of rocky cliff
is depicted against that wood across
the water. The cliff Is of a dark
brown, the wood a dark green, two
dark substances, the one directly be
hind the other. You must make one
of them of a different shade from
what it Is. The rock, being in the
foreground, is the most Important.
You have got its color to perfection.
The wood, being distant, would bear
more blending with Its neighboring
objects. It will bear lightening,
which will darken the rock.
Constaifre mixed some colors on her
palette, gave the wood beyond the
rock a dab snd was quite pleased with
tbe improvement. The rock stood' out
boldly, while the wood appeared at
its proper distance.
"Are you a teacher of art 7 she
"I have taught art, but I de cot

In regaining, my physical . strength,

. Constance noticed that be was pale
and thin. His eyes, which were large
and expressive at any time, seemed
more so in his Invalid condition. She
thanked him for his suggestion and,
removing her canvas, folded her easel
and her stool, put ber palette and

There was tu broad porch on three

plied. "Do you live here ajl alone?"
"For the present. . I go back to the
city early In September."
"h will relieve you of my belongings
about 3 o'clock this afternoon."
"If It Is not necessary that yon
work all day I would advise yon not
to do so."
"Why?" ' "
"Well" he looted np at the sky for
a reason and found, one "in the morn
ing we are fresh and can do our best
work. Besides, when we have Just
finished a bit of work we are liable to
either undervalue or overvalue it." If
you leave what you have done this
morning without looking at It till to
morrow you will-be able to put a much
better estimate upon, it than now. Just
after working upon it."
"And if I leave It here I can't see
It, can I?"
"No, yon can't. And in tbe morning
when you are fresh yon will know
Just what it requires. You see, the
course I advise Is beneficial In more
ways than one." .
Constance left htm and. Striking a
disused road through the pines, walk
ed away toward Harpswell village.
After dinner instead of going back to
her work she took a siesta and later
a tour of observation in search of oh-'
jects to transfer to canvas.
Tbe next morning was clear and
crisp. Constance walked to tbe cot
tage where she bad left her belong
ings and, approaching, saw. her easel
set up on the north porch and ber pic
ture resting on it. She was far bet
ter pleased with what she had done
than she had been tbe day . before.
Just then tbe stranger came out, and
she srfld to him:
"You are an - admirable teacher.
Last evening I was disposed to throw
my work into the fire. This morning
I am very well satisfied with It"
"Perhaps.it Is because you see it
through rested eyes."
Constance took her picture down to
the position she had occupied the day
before and began ber day's work. She
was again disappointed. It seemed
to her when noon came that ber pic
ture looked much as it bad done tbe
day before. She carried it up to the
stranger's cottage. He saw her coming
and went out to meet her.
"I fear that I have spoiled it," she
said to him. "This morning it was
fine; now it Is worse than It was yes
"Put it -away from yon again," he
said, "till tomorrow morning."
"I will leave it "with you till to
morrow morning If yon will kindly
keep It, but I know that daring the
day I'have injured it rather than lm
nroved it I cm heartsick over it",
Growing confidential: "I am very poor
and have 'hoped soon to be able to
make my living In this way. If the
more- work I put on a picture the
worse It is, what chance Is there for
"We most all meet discouragement,"
he replied, "but when we are In Its
(oils there is a kind fairy called rest
that unwinds them, and when we are
refreshed we take hold again with
So Constance left her picture with
her new found friend, Vent to her
room and lounged the rest of the day.
In the morning she found her picture
again set up in an advantageous light,
and again her dissatisfaction with it
ef the day before - was changed to
comfort J -
Day after day Constance, worked on
ber picture, every morning comforted
by Its appearing to her to be" improved
from what it was the day before,
every noon fearful lest she bad lost
more than she had. gained. The
stranger taught her many a "trick." as
he called It. by which objects were
brought to their relative position and
striking effects produced. One thing
she knew taken . altogether, the pic
ture was really growing- Into some
thing beautiful. She bettered that
what she was doing was due entirely
to a subtle Isflnence her instructor
exerted over herei
During this time the summer was
fading into autumn. The water and
the sky took on a cold hue, and the
cottage.reBidents of XDrr's island began
to re torn to tneir permanent nonaes.
Constance finished heV painting and
was delighted with it She was sur
prised at ber talent
Constance's Instructor told her that
if she would take her picture to a
prominent art dealer in Boston he
thought she would get a good pries
for it. He said he , would meet bsi
there os a certain date and introduce
her. On tbe day named she took her
work to1 the store, but her Instructor
Jailed to meet ber. She showed the
dealer the picture, and he studied it
' "Did you pafnt It?" he asked.
. "Certainly. Why to yon ask that?"
r "Because I would' have sworn that
was a-Frank Elliot."
. Taking up a small microscope; he
brought it to bear on a lower corner.
"It Is an Elliot," be said.
"What do you mean?' exclaimed the
The . dealer handed her the micro
scope, and she brought it to bear on
the picture. There she saw "F. Elliot
"Who is Frank Elliot?" she asked.
"Our principal American marine
painter just at present"
"Where does he live?"
"Nowhere. He's been trying to re
gain his health at Orr's Island, I bo-
Here." - . - ;
Constance was dumfounded.
"What value do yon place upon the
picture?" she asked. .
. The dealer pondered a few momenta,
then said: '
"It is worth about $1,200."
"Goodness gracious!" exclaimed the
girl, her breath quite taken away.
At that moment Constance's instruc
tor walked into the shop.
"Hello, Elliot," said the dealer.
"Been trying to fool, me again, have
you? You can't do it I'd know your
work in a dungeod."
The sequel to this story Is very brief
and very prosaic. Frank Elliot and
Constance, his wife, mpw In summer
occupy the 'cottage at Orr's island,
where he painted the picture.
