A Critic Who Says That It II m Lowered
tlio Standard of Art.
lias photography accoiuplis'lird any
thing? i'cs; it has cheapened art great
ly. It has lowered the standard with a
public that instinctively prefers the
sham ami the machine nnitlo and the
microscopic. It lias reduced the artist
to a demoralizing struggle with tbo
amateur simply to gi t bis bread and
butter. In the beginning of tbo century
England was celebrated for its beauti
fully illustrated booka, in which tlio
greatest artists, engravers and printers
collaborated to produce a perfect
whole. Today tbo place of these books
has been taken by The Strand Magazine
and The iski tch, thanks to tbo services
of photography. In the making of books,
however, the tendency has always been
toward the survival of tbo cheapest, and
the chrr.pet-t usually the newest has
always in t rested artists for awhile,
though for other reasons than its cheap
ness. k:ti;el engravings succumbed beforo
wood engraving and lithography, and
they, in turn, have succumbed to tbo
cheapness of tbo process man. In many
ways until lately process was a great
advance upon any other form of ropro
ducl ion. Now process block makers are
mostly photographers, who aro killing
each other in the race for cheapness. I
do not want any ono to think I would
imply that photography is not useful to
the artist. On tbu contrary, it is, and
espicir.IJy in illustration, since it pro
serves tlie illustrator's original design
for him. It l imbics the architect to get,
at snuill expenso and without thu trou
ble of going to sen and draw them, bits
of detail in foreign lauds, though this is
a questionable advantage. Tbo world's
gn ntest ureliiti cts managed very well
without it. One critic has said that if
photographers woidd turn their atten
tic.n to the recording of historic eventi;,
like the jubilee, or of vanishing build
ings they con Id do an immense service
to art. in one way tbirf in true, in an
other it is not.
khtrely this critic would Le tbo last to
suggest that tbo cinematographic "pic
tures" tlio whole a.'.OOO of them,
shown at tbo Kmpire, I think are equal
to one picture of a procession by (Jnrpuc
cio, painted centuries before we had any
photographs. No doubt 22,000 artists
would bo required to secure as many
views of the jubilee procession an were
obtained by the cinematograph, and
tin ir employment might have been too
much of a good thing. lint if, say, half
a ill i u act i liiplished artists had been
ecu, missioned and allowed to do what
tin y wanted, might wo not have had a
record of some artistic importance? As
to the photographing of old buildings,
wbiib would tbo architect rather have
an etchirg by l'iranesi or a photo
graph by one of tbu most revolutionary
of tlio Salon photographers? Joseph

Why Thi-y Clu-prcd.
Dr. Whcwell, master of Trinity col
lege, Cam bridge, was a great but un
popular man. When he entered the seu
atu house, it was the ill mannered prac
tice of the undergraduates to begin a
loud and continuous whistle.
"How this originated I do not know, "
writes Doau Farrar iu bis book "Men I
Have Known. ' ' "There were- wu.H
ends about it. One was that it intimat
ed that thu master would have to whis
tlo for a bishopric; tbo other equally
absurd was that when some one had
asked him how to pronounce his name
bo had raid, 'You must shape your
mouth us if yon were going to whittle. ' "
liut under the rough manners of the
students there was genuine goodness of
heart. Dr. WheweM's wife died. Ho
had been tenderly devoted to her, and
when l.o attended chapel after herdeath
the undergraduates were touched by an
"old man's anguish and a strong man's
"When next ho entered the senato
house," writes Dean Farrar, "there was
dead silence For the first time for I
know not how many years not a whis
tle was heard, and then a moment after
ward as by spontaneous impulse- the
whole crowded mass of undergrailnates
in tbo galliry burst into a loud and
long continued cheer. It was not aston
ishing that such a proof of sympathy
should move the heart of the great mas
ter or that tbu tears should run down
his cheeks. I do not think that ho was
ever whistled at again."

Why tlin ISliud Do Not Smoke,
. A peculiarity about blind people is
that there is seldom ono of them who
smokes. Soldiers and sailors accustomed
to smoking and who have lost their sight
in action continue, tu smoke for a short
time, but soon give up thu habit. They
fay it gives them no pleasuru when they
cannot see the smoke, and some ha ,)
said that they cannot taste the smoke
unless they see it. New York Ledger.

mil-poses of organizing sonic brine

will make a report iu a few days. I
of the Kickers had beat their own ie
cord forthe week by announcing that
they liadacluallyjH'ou working. ' ie

ers saitl they learned the whole trade in
the few hours they worked and would
soon start for Culm to assist in taking
down the walls of Morro Casllo if the
iuerican fleet is not able to accomplish
the task. '-On The Corner" ctvuhl have
furnished a few men who might have
been of assistance to those who had tlie
inoviii"- of tlie Paine house iu charge,
and would have been glad to have done
the same for no pay, as the house re
mained in the streets for so many days
that people dime near taking it for our

fiiluro oppose the moving of any such
building through our Main street lloulo
vard. liarre is too large says "The ( 'lub''
for any such obsolete work. These

over the .statement Ihat a new company

ed here to take" their place, and that no
other military organizalion will lie ex

Company K and that is the present com

not bo any other.'
There were rumors on the street so
one of the Kickers slated that efforts
would bo mnile at the session of the
legislature to annex the town of
wlllianistown to Washington county,
anil Ibis would so lhe"Club,'elaimod be a

The citizens of Barre were always
noted for having lots of "Sand" they
bail more than enough Thursday and
many '-On The Corner" were ready la-t
night lo subscribe n few pennies toward
paving for running the sprinklee.
"i'loney talks" and the Inspector would
have more faith in those ancient croakers
if they would act and not talk so much.
We siirelv need to have our dust laid
but "On Tlie Corner" expect a few men
to do it and pay the bills. No man has
aright to complain unless willing to
contribute a "mile."
"Shall we buy the Water Works"
was llie leading topic of the evening.
There were as many opinions as (here
were kickers. Thu-Inspector has no
axe to grind in this matter, he is not the
paid attorney of city or company. He
never held a City olliie. lie owns no
property except a building lot near a
srrave aid. He has no use for "Sprin;
Water" and never inquires if red lemo
nade contains "Brook or Kiver water
So what he gives as gathered "On The
Corner" will be as true as he is able to
restore it. A flowery longuetl speaker
w hose sloek in trade is words and a
sharp tongue with very litlle balance
wheel to his upper story, slated that he
was opposed to giving any more money
to that monopoly "We have been
fooled long enough" be said. "We
don't want the great white elephant on
our hands." "We have all the debts
we can pay." I am not going to allow
this city to buy that plant unless I can
see where I am going to get a dollar
out of it." When the empty head had
finished, another "Water Expert" step
ped into tlie. middle of the circle and
this is what he said "I am -not sure but
what the best thing we can do is to buy
tlio whole business for 1 am sure we will
have a chance to read about something
else in the papers after we have bought
the Wilier works." That was his only
argument jnd the Inspector having tak
en a puilTtt water to his place on the
platform attached lo the telephone jiole
poured tin; same on to tbo crowd of
kickers and they instanliy ceased to talk
water but commenced the singing of
"Wafer water every where

As a positive cure for sprains, bruises,

lias no equal. Mrs. Frank Juif, 518
Gratiot Ave., Detroit, Mich., writes :
"I used Salvation Oil in my family

sprained my ankle and it cured me
aud since then I have always used it
for any pain3 and bruises." Salvation
Oil is sold for only 25 cents. No other
remedy will do the work as promptly.

lull, without ohtainiiiL' any permanent relief.
In the fall of lsnti 1 was iii pretty hail shape
and suffered, constant, sharp pains across my
hack which were ut times terrible, when I
would apply it mustard plaster over my kid
neys only to "ret relief for the time bein. A
weakness of the kidney secretions was very
annoviiiu'. especially at "niirlit, as it disturbed
my rest. The secretions were also very high
ly "colored. I read of Dottn's Kidney Tills and
as they were so highly recommended I krot a
box from Eaton's drug store. After using
them the weakness was relieved mid the sec
retions were normal. 1 got a second box and
when itid tinished it 1 was cured. 1 have
not felt the least symptoms of my former kid
ney trouble since". I tun no greatly pleased
with the prompt uiid thorough manner iu
which Dean's Kidney Pills cured me thtit I
am always glad to recommend them personally
to any one should they cull on me."

ONE OF TWO WAYS.
The bladder was created for one purpose,
munch-, a receptacle for the urine, and as
such it is not liable to any form of disease ex
cept by one or two ways. Tin; first way is
from imperfect action 'nf the kidneys. 'The
second way is from careless local treatment of
'II IKK CAi'SK.
( nhwilthy urine from unhealthy kidneys is
the chief cause of bladder troubles. So' the
womb, like tin- bladder, was created" for one
purpose, and if not doctored too i -h is not
liable to weakness or disease, except in rare
cases. It is situated back of and very close to
the bladder, therefore any pain, disease or in
convenience martilcsted i"n Hie kidneys, Pack,
bladder or urinary passage is often," by mis
take, attributed t.o female Weeklies or 'womb
trouble of some sort. The error is easily
made and may be us easily avoided. To Iind
mil correctly, si 1 oiu- urine aside for twentv
four hours: a sediment or si tiling indicates
kidney or bladder trouble. The mild and the
extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Sw.-tntp-Itoot,
the great kidney, and bladder remedy
s sontt realized, if j'iiii need a medicine' voii
should have the best. At druggists fifty cents
