.more exnenslve. and the deeicrns are limit
en in namiwr,
, The wooden figures being more within
the.rnacb of most dealers naturally offer a
frreaV Trirty ln design. The wood need
la gertrmlly white pine, which is bought ln
Iors o various lengths at tbe spar yard.
The art let begins by making tbe roughest
kind of uP outline a mere suggestion of
what the troportion of the figure are to
be. In thi he I guided by paper pattern.
The log ia hawked out with the ax Into
appropriate sU-acea for tbe head, the body
down to tbe v.V't, the portion from there
to the knee, thrf nwt of the legs (which are
at once divided vand tbe feet In ita pres

A hole is now bored into each end of thfi
prepared log about five inches deep. Int
each of thene holes an iron bolt is nlarad
toe projecting parts oi vt-iucn rts on sup
ports, to that the body hangs free. The
carter now goes from the general to the
partirulnr. Tbe surface of the wood soon
becomes chipped up by the chisel, and tbe
big generally takes on more definite form.
Then, whim the figure is completely
eveived, tbe finishing touches are put on
with liner carving tools.
iirtnriwA hum. and arms are made sep
arate M and -joined on to the body by
screw. Then the various portions of the
figure are appropriately painted, the whole
ia net upon a stand runuing on wheels, and

'Tbt CTemeDcoau Case," which is to be
presented tt Harper'i theatre toiiight,hM
been talked ef tbe country over ever since
tbe time when tha authorities of Boston
decided that the stodio tcene wm an ln
tolerable oyer-etepping of tbe bounds of
modesty, tod closed the theatre. Then,
of coarse, the curiosity of everyone was
excited. Ia deference, bowerer. to tbe
best public opinion, the parte which were
o muoh condemned have been modified.
All questionable lines and immodest
scenes have been eliminated, without,
however, destroying the real interest of
tbe play. Dumas' famous story of love,
jealousy end revenge is of course the
original of the play, uhlch was adapted
to the suge by Fleron. An impoverished,
eccentric and worldly Polish' countess,
who leaves St. Petersburg at the request
of the authorities, establishes herself in a
flat in Paris. She has a beautiful daugh
ter sixteen yean old, by whose means she
bopes to win her way to wealth and
luxury. She attends a dance in
the salon of an artist with her
daughter dressed as a page. A young
sculptor there falls ia loye with the beau
tiful girl. In spite of ber mother's desire
that she should wed a wealthy Russian
count, who has been in love with ber, she
eventually becomes tbe wife of the young
sculptor. Under tbe influence of her
mother, she afterwards consented to a

money upon the family. 8be apparently

sketch will give an idea of the character
or the play. It is decidedly French in
tone and yet. If all that is said of it be
true, it is no more improper than "Ca-
mllle," wbich has long been regarded aa
a standard nlay of iu kind. The com
pany which will appear here is the same
that gave tbe play in Boston and New
Tork when the performance eaused so
much sensational talk . Miss SybilJohns
