IN AN ARTIST'S STUDIO.
VVe have "laughed until we cried" eier
'Stne in an JlriisVs Studio,'' described by
"Tom Peppery" ' in one of the . chapters
whioh depicts the reMilfrsf romancing.-
It should be premised that he is in the
painting room of Mr. Ardent, a gifted nr
list, where are a great many ensts of Ve
niisesand Apollo, empty champagne bot
tles, elephants' teeth, e clay figure w jlh a
white satin robe over its shoulders, but
with nothing on its legs; a Roman shield,
o Gothic chair, a plaster horse and a mart
Lie dog,' all planed together in one corner;
the walls ore covered with cartoon draw
ing of heads, iirrr.s and, toros, soino of
them finished with exquisite nicety, and
all of thaip displaying a masterly hand.
There are landscapes, half-iihUhed por
traits, and di.igrains in abundance, but no
thing coarse or nlnr. There is a m.ig
nifiuetit - mahogany chair, covered with
crimson velvet, placed on a kind of throne,
in front of which stands an unfinished
porlrnilof a lady, which Mr. Ardent takes
down and turns to the wall belure
the writer has i.n opportunity to mark it
put denial ly, mid in spile of all his entrea
ties, he refuses lo allow him to look nl it.
! One corner of the room is srreened off by
j a large mounted canvas;, which he turns
round, nndhow him the figure of Apol-
lo that hf. had s;ol en of. Tom is rharm-
ed hy the majestic beauty of the figure,
: the dignity of presion which the iirtWt
; had imparled to the features, the depth and
I richness of ihe color, and the purity Willi
j which the figure, although entirely nude,
stemeil to be invented, lint ohterve what

' "Come," suiil'Ardeiit, taking up his
iniiul-stick, brushes and palette; "takeoff
your hut, and try to auitie that fierce
Look which you nut on when von struck
"I ennnot assume a look," I replied ; "1
can only look as 1 led."
Well, now, like thst much belter,"
said he: 'you look precisely as 1 wish
you to. Oniy remain so for a moment."
And he began: to touch upon his picture
as I stood before him.
"Won't you lake off your coal and era
vat?" he s-id. "Thank you. It yon
couhl lake off your vest ronveniemiy,"
he said, in Ins persuasive manner, "1
should like it very much."
1 took off my vest, as he requested, and
to oblige him slill further, took off my
shirt, then my pantaloons, until at last I
stood belbre him as naked as the figure he
was painting; and I was so charmed by
his conversation, and so desirous of obli
ging him, that I felt quite unconscious ol
my rather novel position, lie continued
talking and painting, only interrupting
himself occasionally to request me lo va
ry my position. und I listened to him with
out the least diminution of interest in his
conversation) but we were suddenly in
terrupted by somebody . turning the han
dle of the dour and as he had neglected
: tu lock iti, I had but barely time lo jump
behind the canvass .before (he door was
opened and a lady entered.
I "Ah ! how do you do, Mre. Napkin ?"
said Mr. Ardent; "are you pretty well
j "No, 1 am not well, and you know I
;am not," said the lady.
"Ah I I am very sorry, said the ar(ut.
" I hen pay me inv money ; I don't want
)any body lo be sorry for me that owes me
I money," said the lady seating herself,
I "It is very unfortunate .'or ine," said
I he, depreealingly, "but really I have not
' got a shilling tins morning," :
"A pretty fellow you are," said she, "lo
be up here paiuting naked figures, and
eating my bread, and my children in want
of shoes to their leet ! .
"Good heavens, Mrs. Napkin!" said
he, "it is very unreasonable in you to talk
in that manner!. 1 iae already given
you my Watch, that is worth '.more than
five times the amount 1 owe ypu; you
have taken the silver palette thai was giv
en to me by the Academy, besides keep
ing all my wardrobe, and I have paid you
a good deal of money beside since you
turned me out of your hoube." ' 'i
"Well, all I know is,T want my mon
ey; and I' won't leave without I get it, or
in full 4'alue," said the lady. "Every
body must lake care of themselves in this
seltish world.", . ,
"But my dear friend,", said he .
"O it's very . easy .thing to. say my
dear friend," , said , W rt. N'pkin.
that' not giving me my money., I must
have my money. However, if you won't
pay me, J wll just pay my self !",'.' '
"For Heaven' sake don't touch those
ihingal" f iclsimed Mr. Ardent; and
hereupon a souffle look place between the
artist and hit creditor, and before 1 could
discover what they were about, I heard

behind the canvass, exclaimed in great
consternation t "my dear fellow she lias
run off w flh all your clothes!"
; . .
"It is very distressing," said the artist,
"to be in debt, and particularly lo women:
they are so urgent in their demands, and
so unreasonable in their expectations, I
really believe that I have paid my landla
dy three or four .times the amount of her
bill, and yet she continues to hsunt me!"
"My good fellow," said I, "if you have
paid the woman, of course you taken a
receipt from her "
,' "A receipt!" said the artist. "Well,
that is something I never thought of; I
wi-h I had, for she is continually threat
ening me with a law suit."
"Very well," said I, "if you have been
so careless, you mul suffar for your neg
ligence ; but thai is no fault of mine, und
I am not going naked this chilly weather
because vou have got a dishonest landla
dy." : - . : i . ,a
"Ah ! I am very sorry !" said Mr. Ar
dent, "but what can I do?"
'What can you do?" I replied. "It
strikes me thai the way is very plain be
fore you ; go get a warrant against the
harridan for stealing my clothes, and I
will wait here for you lo return with
Ihctn ; but you must be back -soon, for 1
have an appointment to keep." '
"Ah! but consider that she is a wo
man," said the artist.
"A woman! she is a hag!" I exclaim
ed, growing vexed at the coolness of the
painter; Vbut do as you choose: cither
sirip and give me your own clothes, or go
and get mine. J hove an appointment to
keen, nnd I cannot break it.
"Ihive yon?" said he; "that is so nn-frirtiin-atc!
But just stand up for a few
minuses, until I finish clazinu over the
head with this maddsr that I have got on
"io, no; I cannot wait longer,'' said I,
"You must, or Iho effect of my picture
will be spoiled, " said he.
"But I tell you thai 1 must be gone,"
said I. "It is impossible ; I cunnot."
' " I hen 1 swear to you hy all that is sa
cred, if you don't, 1 will not let you budge
lrmthe room to-night!" he exclaimed,
with a determined air, and looking me
sternly in the f.ice.
,1 saw there was no use in expostula-
in'g, and as the enthusiast had me com
pletely in his poner, I could do nothing
but yield to his demands ; and placing my
self in the proper r04e, he commenced
rubbing on his confounded madder on the
canvass, w hioh seemed lo afford him as
much pleasure as it did me chagrin. At
last he laid dnwn his palette nnd Irtish,
and throwing his arms around my neck,
"Yon are very good, and I am very
grateful to you." .
, t "But." said 1. "this is gelling to be a
very serious matter, my friend; you seem
lo forget (hat I am standing here without
a rag of clothes lo my back !" '
"Very true.M said lie, "you are in rath
er an awkward box; but I will go out
and try and pet your clothes, hack. But
suppose that Mrs. Napkin will not deliv
er them without I pay her what she claims
to be due her? I have got no money.
Couldn't you lend me some? and 1 will
pay you very soon."
, "Do you forget," said I impatiently.
"that the woman has not only carried off
my cluthet, but everything that was in my
"So she has! What shall I do?" again
said the artist, as he stood hesitatingly!
: "Allow me lo suggest to you," said I,
Who propriety of bringing me a suit of
your own clothes, then, that I may be re
lieved from my -.awkward position."
"It happens very unfortunately," said
he, "that 1 have left my entire wardrobe
in pledge for a smull sum that I owe ano
ther landlady for a trifling board bill. I
declare to you that 1 don't know what to
uo. . ,
There was but one alternative for me,
so I wrote a note to Mr Bassett, request
ing him togive the bearer twenty dollars,
and (old the artist after he procured the
money, to obtain' my clothes, and bring
them to me; he then left mo, locking the

muse myself by looking into Mr. Ardent'a

the world, while meaner persons contrive
to live in splendor. I could really par
do' the artist' for the very uncomfortable
position into which he had unwittingly
thrust me, although my vexntion was al
most mibeartihjf. I had suflicient time to
get cool before he relumed, and,, indeed,
when I heard his step-in the pasuagt, 1
was so completely exhausted, for it was
nearly v'ark, that my teelh chattered with
the cold. He hud a covered basket in his
hand, which I supposed, of course, con
tained my clothes ; and ss I demanded them
hastily, he said :
"I have not gol your clothei, my good
friend, but I have gol you something to eat,
and here is a bottle of champagne to warm
you." - .' , . , .,
Vexed hd disappointed asl felt, I was
too happy in having something to eat, lo
reprove him, and immediately fell to upon
the cold tongue, bread nnd butter and
champagne, which he had brought me,
Wc grew very merry together, and I
laughed heartily at his perplexities in try
ing to get back my clothee. He had ob
tamed the money from Mr. lVissett with'
out any difficulty, although he had to wait
a couple of hours for him to return '.o his
counting-room from dinner, and at last
had been so vexed at the exorbitant de
mands of his landlady, 1 hat he swore he
would not pay hera dollar, and had to come
away without my clothes utter nl'. - j
"Well," said I, "it was very good of
you to think of bringing me something to
eat. How much , money have you cot
lelt?" J '
"The truth is, my rieur fellow," aid he
embracing me again, "I h ive not got any.
But you will not be vexed with me? 1
urn very sorry that il happened so. But
what could 1 do? I remembered that I
wanted more colors before I could finish
my large picture, and so 1 stepped into
De Bistre's to procure what 1 wanted,
and when 1 gave the mercenary w retch the
twenty dollar bill which I received from
your Irieml, would you behove that the
rascal refused to return me my change,
and told me he would place I he balance to

"I am very sorry," ejaculated !!r. Ar
dent again, "hut how could I help il ? I
did not think that De Bistre was such a
kind of man." .
"And pray," I asked, "how did you
procure the champagne and cold tongue ?"
"O, 1 left the madder w Inch I bought
in pledge for the amount," said he.
So I was imtv worse oil' than before,
and os il was now quite dark, 1 gave up
all hopes of being liberated for the night,
and alter Mr. Ardent had lighted a can
dle, which he stuck in the neck of the
chtunp:igne bottle, 1 wrapped myself up
in the fragments ol the cloth which 1 found
in his room, nnd forgot nil my perplexities,
