Dr. David Kennedy, Rondout, N. Y.:
Dear Sir Let me tell you frankly that I have

than methods of obtaining money from people whom
suffering makes ready to catch at any hope of re

It has always been astonishing to see the
prohibitionists maneuver. They have per
sistently fought against the only party that
has. ever shown any disposition to help them
and they are still at it. At a meeting of
ministers at Chicago this- week President
Magoun of Iowa college, one of the most ac
tive and influential of the Iowa prohibition
ists, denounced the St. John movement as it
deserves to be denounced. He said that
Iowa, where prohibition is triumphant, takes
no stock in that movement. In Kansas, the
prohibitionists have already had enough and
too much of St. John, who, as a Kansas pas.
tor said', had,by his egotism and willfulness in
thrusting himself on the prohibitory party as
candidate for governor for the third term,
lost the State to4 the cause of prohibition.
The proclamation issued" by John B. Finch,
appointing October 29 as a day of fasting
and humiliation for the benefit of the St.
John ticket, is a specimen of cant that has
seldom been outdone. "All Christian be
lievers are called upon to unite in prayer to
Almighty God that his aid may be given to
measures which will result in the speedy sup
pression of the Kquor traffic." These "meas
ures" are the efforts of the St. John party to
draw away enough Republicans from their
party allegiance to secure the return of ihe
Democratic party to power in the Union and
the different States, and places the restric
tion of the liquor traffic beyond the limits of
Bev. Dr. George H. Gould, formerly pas
tor of the Center church in Hartford, and
well known in this State, is another prohibi
tionist who sees the situation and gives good
counsel to temperance men. In a letter to a
friend in Hartford he says that he is a pro
hibitionist and a thorough-going one, and
that he has a great respect for Mr. St. John.
But he tries to put his common sense into
his politics, and he recognizes the fact that
Mr. St. John cannot be elected President.
Either the Republican or the Democratic
party will have control of the government
for the next four years. Shut up to this
choice, the doctor unhesitatingly chooses the
Republican party. It is - to-day, he says,
"the purest and grandest political organiza
tion on the face of the earth." This he be
lieves "fully and profoundly." On the other
hand he sees in the Democracy a party that
for more than a generation has "steadily and
stolidly blocked the pathway of all national
This is the plain, impressive truth. The pro
hibitionists who vote for St. John this year
will be voting against the real interests of
the cause they have so much at heart.
Congressman Leopold Morse, of the First
Massachusetts district, is one of the very few
men who really do not want an office. He
absolutely declines to accept a renomination.
It is reported from Paris that experiments
made in the hospitals show that sulphide of
carbon is the best agent to restore the nor

It has restored to consciousness in thirty

its administration, were insensible to even
the pricking of needles.
Governor Jarvis told the North Carolini
ans in a srieech the other day that they had
enjoyed something this year never before seen
since the Declaration of Independence "the
State government run for one whole year
without drawing one dollar from the pockets
of the people." This was accomplished by
the sale of some unproductive public prop
erty. '
One of the happiest hits of the season was
made by a lady at Waverly the other day.
Governor Bate and Judge Reid spoke there.
The judge became very nervous at the crying
of a baby, and asked if it could not be made
to stop crying. Its another pacified the child
and it was still v a while, but it" began
crying again 'and the judge said: "Let
that child be taken out; it has no business art
a public meeting." The mother promptly
said: "Sir, my child is crying to hear Gov
ernor Bate speak."
Ever since the St. Gothard line uniting
Germany and Italy was finished there have
been schemes in the air for drawing back the
traffic through France. The distance from.
Antwerp to Milan via the St. Gothard is less
by HQ miles than that between Calais
and Milan via Mont Cenis, and the advan
tage can only be brought back to the side
of France by piercing the Alps half
way between the two existing tunnels. The
project of a Great St. Bernard line is there
fore beginning to assume definite shape; and
inasmuch as' the strata to be pierced are
comparatively soft, it would not be nearly so
big an undertaking as the St. Gothard. In
deed, the French engineers believe that the
whole line could be made in four years, (the
St. Gothard took ten,)' and that the cost
would not exceed $17,500,000, about half
what the St. Gothard cost.
Mr. Copeland, of Brockton, Massachusetts,
has nearly completed the machinery which is
being placed under the Union Fish com
pany's wharf at Pro vinceto wn , Massachu
setts, by which tht rise and fall of the tide is
to be the motive power. The work is only
experimental, but everything is successful
thus far. The apparatus consists of a float
gliding up and down on studding, which
turns a wheel, making four revolutions a
tide. This wheel is connected by means of
shafts and belts to a series of other wheels,
and in such a way that the terminal wheel
makes .240 revolutions per minute.
Some valuable experiments have been
made as to the comparative value of good
hay .for stock. As the result, it is estimated
that 100 pounds of hay are equal to 275
pounds of green Indian corn, 400 pounds of
green clover, 442 pounds of rye straw, 360
pounds of wheat straw, 164 pounds of oat
straw, 180 pounds of barley straw, 153
pounds of pea straw, 200 pounds of buck

Tawhiao, king of the Maories, on leaving
England addressed a letter of farewell "to all
the gentry and their ladies" who had enter
tained him. "I have now made up my
mind," he wrote, "to return to my country
and race, and therefore I write a few words
of f urewell and thanksgiving to you all.
Abide here in your own land. I will never
forget your love to me and my friends,
and we will henceforth tell of your honora
ble kindness to our race. Although the gov
ernment were not disposed to allow us to see
the queen and to thoroughly investigate the
affairs of our race, nevertheless we have been
greatly loved. We have come here from a
far distant land, and have reached England,
and have seen its people, its nobles, its habi
tations, and your honorable kindness to us.
In conclusion, my dear friends, I have seen
and experienced the reality of things done to
wards us as we sat in the presence of great
people. Dwell here! Farewell!"
Colonel William M. Grosvenor in his
speech in Philadelphia made five statements
which are worth the attention of all voters:
First The average wages of labor are 60
per cent, higher here than in Great Britain.
Second The same quantities of food
which this country consumes, costing in New
York ?50 for each person, will cost in Lon
don over $55. ,
Third The British taxes on liquors and
tobacco make the cost of the quantity which
our people consume greater in England than
the cost "here by about $8 for each person.
Great Britain takes care to put taxes where
her own people will have to pay the whole
of them, so as not to lose customers. That
is British free trade. We are glad to put
taxes where British manufacturers . shall pay
as much of them as possible.
Fourth The cost of all other articles en
tering into consumption here of clothing,
metals, coal oil, lumber, glass, other house
building articles, paper, soap, drugs and
chemicals is not more than 12 greater for
each person here than in England; so that,
Fifth The entire cost of living, if the
same articles and quantities are bought m
England that are consumed here, is less in
this country than in England, while wages
are 60 per cent, greater.
"Garters with bells in them are much in

Was there ever a place where garters with
belles in them were out of favor? Boston
A fashion exchange says that short dresses

that can be so. We should judge that the

It is said that there is not a single lawyer
among tne thousand convicts in tne Ver

one thousand people who are peaceable
enough to get along without a lawyer? State

they have been represented. Boston Tran

accomplice, after they had broken into a

Mr. Clapney, the humorist, goes to a min

as auburn as yours she shouldn't get a jersey

In M milch Art At tne Wallialla
Restmnrant Some American Artlsta
Interesting Talk with One of Them
The New Academy BsUding The
Morality of Female models In a
Munich Sept. 10.
To the Editor of the Journal and Courier:
; "But if you want to meet some of the
American art students, go down to the Wal
halla restaurant about . seven o'clock this
evening. It's a modest place, but yon know
we students can't always afford to put onthe
top shelf." The speaker was a young man
who had left America ten years before in or
der to learn to paint in Europe, and who
now Btood, pallet and brush in hand, before
a painting which he was copying in the New
Pinakothek, a "Seni before the cerpse of
Wallenstein." I had heard him address a
word or two of English to a passer-by, and
with the audacity characteristic of the Amer
ican abroad had ventured to introduce my.
self on the strength of this fact, and to
inquire about our art students in this the
leading art center of the German Empire.
The copy of the death of Wellenstein was
destined for Cornell university, hehad told
me, and had added: "You know we have to
do copying as accessory to original work.
This is the way we earn funds with which to
prosecute original painting." Thanking my
infonnaat-foF- thia pointer, I withdrew; and.
that evening after the appointed hour found
myself on the doorsteps of the Walhalla. As
I closed the door behind me and stood for a
moment removing my dripping rubber coat,
I took a rapid survey of the room and its oc
cupants. My keen eye lighted upon two
young men seated at a table by themselves in
a remote corner of the large room, alternate
ly sipping the national beverage beer, and
chatting after the animated American fash
ion. Here were my victims, I calmly said to
myself ; and then I set capturing them in
much the same way as the entomologist is
wont to capture his insects. Drifting across
the room in a languid, nonchalant manner, I
dropped down in one of the chairs at the
same table, apparently oblivious of the pres
ence of anybody else in the vicinity. Then I
picked up the bill of fare and ran my eye
critically down its pages. Now I have learned
from a long and multifarious experience that
the way to a man's heart is through his stom
ach. If there is anything I do know, and
know real hard, it is this. So I resolved up
on a stratagem which I was sure would make
the enemy capitulate. "Bring me," I said in
a clear ringing voice, "a good large piece of
pumpkin pie!" The effect was electrical.
Beth heads dropped to the level of the table
instantly and a melancholy groan went up
which touched me to the heart's core.
"Gentlemen," I said, "it was not my purpose
to cast such a gloom over this meetinjr."
Then I paused for a moment, to allow this
intensity of their emotion to subside, while I
filled out an orthodox order for such things
as are really to be had in Munich. After a
time one of the twain slowly lifted his head,
and murmured in a mournful retrospective
voice: "Pumpkin pie! Then it really- does
exist still. Tell mo, tell me, is it not all a hol
low dream of the pastf he beseeched hoarse
ly. His grief was to pathetic to be trifled
with, and so I said, "Yes, pumpkin pie is
still a tangible reality across the raging duck
pond." "Pray pardon these tears," he said,
wiping his inflamed optics on the window
curtains, "but you might just as well have
said boned turkey and cranberry sauce. It
brought such a tide of memories trooping up
before us, memories of the faded and gone."
From the bottom of my heart I pitied him;
but he brightened up presently and said:
tint we didn t have turkey on Thanksgiv
ing. Only it was goose. But we labelled it
turkey." ''Sirs," I said, "I begin to per
ceive that you are American artists." "Even
so" was the pensive chorus. "Perhaps yen
can shed some light then on a question over
which I have been pondering for a long
time. Do yon incline to the view that an
artist ever thinks?" A moment of delibera
tion followed, when the older and wiser of
the two renlied: "T shonld indeed hesitate
f to go on record as entertaining such a rash
belief. Sometimes an artist stumbles against
an idea that looms up before him like a dead
wall, or tn9 broadside or a barn. Then he
sometimes absorbs the general outline of it,
just as nourishment is sometimes absorbed by
being placed in contact with the body of a
man who has lost the use of his regular di
gestive apparatus. otui, mere is grave
doubt even on this point. It is at least cer
tain teat ueuDens was saoiy astray when in
answer to the question 'Don't you sometimes
amuse yourselt by painting ! he made sar
castic reply, 'No, I usually amuse myself by
thinking over affairs of state. ' I suppose
the masterpiece of all these famed artists
kind of 'growed'.like 'Topsy.'"
Very likely. But tell me something about
artist life. How many meals do you eat
day?" "Two usually. We get up at eleven
o'clock so that we don't have to have any
breakfast." .
"Is it true that your chief diet is liver?'
"Liver and calf 's head. Sometimes we have
bread and usually a glass of beer. But we
find that regular meals promote obesity, and
interfere with ntness tor work. Liiver is
cheap, and there is no danger of its stimula
ting the torpid brain."
"But don't you tire of it after awhile?"
"Yes, but we will not yield to any such
weakness. They always serve a good deal
of it, and if our stomachs spleen against it
after a few mouthfuls, we just wrap up what
is left in a piece of paper and stick it into
our pocket. This is an especially satisfactory
practice, . because we can afterwards chew
the paper, and extract some nutrition from
"Where do you room?" "In private
houses, for the most part. Then there is the
hospital here which is open to students at
only three marks per year; and when a man
gets really hard up, he can succumb to some
slight indisposition and put up there. It is
a serious fact that some students find their
way out of a financial difficulty in this man
ner." "Some more serious fact, please." "Well,
badinage aside, there is not so much poverty
as the world is apt to suppose among our
number. The total membership of the Royal
Academy of Fine Arts is a little over 500
students at present. Of course the Germans
are in the ascendancy from a numerical point
of view. Every nationality in Europe is
represented, I snppose. We hare a
Jap, one or two Roumanians and Bulgarians,
not a few Poles and Swedes, a liberal con
stituency from Italy and Franco, a very, few
English, and usually forty or fifty Americans.
It is simple statement of fact,' I think, when
I say that the Americans stand very high in
point of talent and faithful labor. At the
last exhibition there were thirty ' Americans
with work entered, and twenty-two of these
succeeded in carrying off honors. The .work
of. two of this number was purchased by the
academy, a rare honor. One of these men
has but one arm his left to paint with.
Last year at a certain time five prizes were
awarded, and the small band of Americans
secured three of them. The standard of
admission is being elevated every year, so
that it requires a good deal of skill in. order
to secure an entree." .
'Don't a good many students come here to
fail of admission, and go away disappointed?"
Yes indeed. There is one quite pathetic
case here now. A man came here from New
Jersey, "with work which he thought to show
to the faculty, and at once gain admission.
But he was of course compelled to perform
new work under the supervision of the pro
fessors, and failed to meet the requirements.
He then engaged a private teacher, and
worked diligently for many months, when he
appealed for admission again, but again
failed to pass the examination. He is now
without money, casting about him for some
thing to do, and not Knowing wnither to
8: . ' .
"JBut tnere is not mucn actual poverty or
the pinching, grinding sort?" "No, I should
say not. We are most of us frugal, but we
do not lack for the comforts of life. The ex.
penses are not so high as you would imagine.
Many a student gets through on $250 a year.
The present cost of tuition is about $11 a
year in American money, though there is a
strong probability that this sum will be
raised to $15 in another year. Our supplies
cost us little or nothing. Rooms are very
cheap, and we do not have to resort to the
proverbial attic. A real good room may be
obtained for ten marks ($2.50) per month.
We are accustomed to board at the' restau
rants, which are extraordinarily cheap. We
Americans patronize this Walhalla, because
it is in the same block with our Artist club
rooms. We all become easy converts to the
beer-drinking habit as you see, and are soon
able to drink gallons with im
punity. As for regular meals,
my supper to-night foots up 45 pfennig ex
clusive of beer, (about eleven American
cents). And what have I had? A large
bowl of soup, bread, roast veal, potatoes
and one or two side-dishes. I have not
denied myself any necessary, I had a good,
substantial, satisfying supper. I add three
pfennig to the bill for the benefit of the
waitress, three-quarters of a cent."
It hardly needs to be explained that the
German money system is based upon a deci
mal standard abont one-half that of Austria,
just as that of Austria is based on a standard
abont one-half that of the United States.
Thus the mark is approximately equivalent
to our "quarter," and the pfennig, which is
coined, is one-fourth as valuable as our
"For an instance of the occasional tribula
tions of artist life," continued the speaker,
"you may take the case of the
young man whom you met up
at the New Pinakothek this afternoon. He
is a very good copyist. One day last year a
Chicago lady was passing through the gal
lery in company with friends. He heard the
party complimenting his work, saying that it
was as good as the original, etc., and finally
he took occasion to let them know that he
was American and understood all their flat
tering remarks. The Chicago lady became
interested, and. negotiated with him for a
painting in the general style of one
which she brought him a few days la
ter the portrait of a young woman. The
artist undertook the work at great pains, and
finally sent it on. to the lady. The latter
kept it a number of months and finally re
turned it to the author at his expense, with a
contemptible note saying that the original
design had not been adhered to strictly. She
pretended that she had wanted an exact
copy of the painting submitted as a guide!
The truth was that she had thought to be
able to treble her money on the painting in
Chicago, and when she found that there was
little market there for the productions of an
raknowm- artist, however meritorious,
she pretended that the painter had
not done what she desired of him.
It would have been a violation of the law for
the artist to have copied exactly. Little, I
suppose, the lady knows or cares how her
treacherous course frustrates the plans and
embarrasses the study of the humble student
way over here, who has had the result of
months of arduous skilled labor thus tossed
back at him."
"Are there not exceptions made in favor
of art students in a good many respects so
that you may enjoy special favors?" "'Ves,
indeed, every institution here recognizes us
in a liberal way. We have reduced fares on
the railway, cheaper tickets at the theatres,
and immunity from many penalties to which
other people are liable. We cannot be ar
rested for any except the grossest crimes.
Each student has a certificate to the effect
that he attends the academy, and the moment
the por.ceman sees that, ne becomes as polite
and suave as you please, merely requesting
us to 'call at the station' at 6uch a time on
the following day. Here is my certificate.
I always carry it with me," (with a twinkle
of his liquid brown eyes.)
I found that I had fallen not only among
artists, but also among cultured, intelligent
young men congenial companions. Pres
ently I observed interrogatively, "You spoke
of an American artist clubf "Yes, sir.
We have had a club for over fire years. The
present enrolled membership includes 650
persons. There are among this number quite
a tew members of only naturalized citizen
ship, who speak English but tolerably. It is
vacation at present and most of the boys are
off sketching. Schleissheim, a place about
eight miles distant, is a great resort for the
artists, and I suppose there are a dozen of
our boys over there sketching now. When
we are all here we have lively times you may
imagine, and the club rooms are well patron
ized. Would you like to look inside of them?
They are very modest, indeed."
Of course I was delighted at the chance to
inspect the room and promptly availed my
self of it. There were but three small apart
ments, one nsed as a reading-room, and the
other two supplied with stoves, chairs, tables
and half a dozen paintings by the best known
members of the club. There were two tall
panel paintings representing New York in
i i io and 187b respectively. The tormer con
sisted mainly of trees and stumps; the latter
showed the good old flag floating over Broad
way. "For these rooms, gas and fires when
ever needed, we pay but ten marks a month!
That is a good sample of Munich prices. Of
course the patronage which our location here
secures to the restaurant is something of a
consideration. We do have most jolly times
here when we all get together, and the sur
face cf this clean white table is then fairly
black with caricatures.". In the reading
room I found the daily Graphic and daily
New York Sun on file, Scribner's, most of
the Harper's periodicals, Puck and the lead
ing art journals, besides several German dai
ly newspapers. The students all have to
learn German incidentally in their work.
These newspapers are kindly donated by the
various publishers, so that the Art club, with
all its privileges, costs its members almost
nothing per head!
On the following morning one of these
same easily-won friends escorted me about a
little, thus giving me a chance to see more of
student life. Passing along in the rear of an
immense block of studios, with enormous
windows for receiving the light, we came to
the costly new Academy building, construct
ed out of French indemnity money. This
proved to be a colossal structure in the Ital
ian renaissance style, solid, massive, but most
elaborately ornamented. It is the intention
to move, into this new building on or before
the first of November, when the next term
begins. But I doubt if this will be possible,
as things are done so slowly in Europe, and
there is a great deal of plastering and finish
ing yet to be done. We passed through the
vast building, examining room after room.
At the further end we found half a dozen
girls standing around as if waiting for some
thing to happen. "They are models," said
my companion sententiously.
"Munich must be a sort of Paradiee for
models." "It is, indeed. There are many
hundreds of .them, I suppose. Every day
there ore not less than half a dozen come
around to my studio and knock to offer their
services. There are young boys and girls,
men and women of all stages in life, and
grey-headed old patriarchs who pose for a
living. They have discovered that they have
physical advantages, and they have become
professional models. They hang around the
art rooms and' studios jast as professional
jurymen do around the justice courts in
America. Posing is really a business. . w e
can tell as soon as we get hold of an 'experi
mentalist, and often have great difficulty in
teaching the model to stand, sit, gesture or
lie prostrate in what wo consider a graceful-,
natural attitude."
"How about the wages paid?" "The Acad
emy pays forty pfennig an hour. Many mod
els expect sixty for private posings for stu
dents, while there are others so anxious to
earn money that they will pose for almost
nothing. Of course there are models for the
variousrace types. You ought to bo here in
term time and see the professionals swarm
about the academy. It is one of the sights
of Munich. Last year an' American negro
drifted into the city,. ' He was pounced Upon
at once by the students, and suddenly found
himself the most popular man in town, al
though he had come here in great doubt as to
how to gain a livelihood. He posed for a
good many months and became quite -an
adept at the art; but nnaiiy ne slid out or
town as quietly as he had . entered, much to
Our common sorrow.
'Don't you often see people passing by
whom von long to paint, but who would not
pose under any circumstances?" "Yes, .that
is our -sad lot very often. Sometimes a reg
ular Venus will go by, and we will rush to
the window in perfect agony because she is
not and would not be a model. Perhaps
her form is just what we have been sighing-
for and searching after for weary
months- To at least see the ideal going
by, and to know that she is absolutely in
accessible, is indeed heart-breaking. You
know we artists look at people and things
through such different glasses from those
which the rest of mankind employ."
"Isn't this model business a source of
mischief?"- "I shonld not be honest unless"
I answered that it is. The consequences
are most lamentable, infinitely worse than
those of theatrical life, which so many peo
ple Condemn the while they rave over art.
These hundreds of Munich girls begin as
head models in the majority of cases, and
they are simply gaining a livelihood then,
just as the American girl does by measuring
tape over a counter. They are persuaded, in
the interest of art, to sit as quarter nudes,
and become hardened to the exposure. Then
they consent to be 'halves,' and finally "to be
full 'adits' as the Germans Bay. Then their
doom is sealed and they shrink at nothing.
The girl models are almost without exoeption
disreputable creatures. Most of them are
brazen-faced in ihe extreme, while those who
do blush and whimper are usually the woist
of the lot. As a class the students are also
very loose in their conduct, especially the
German-speaking students. Little imagines
the bulk of tourist enthusiasts over art at
what a cost of womanhood those monuments
are purchased over which they gush so gush
fully. I wonder that ministers do not preach
against the demoralizing influences of art. I
suppose it is Decanee arc i
"What is the average studio like?" "It is
o ,nriositv shop. " Stuffed birds,
birds' nests, old cracked vases, broken chairs,
antiques, and a thousand and one objects
that yon would hurl out of the window, hang
on the walls and stutter up the mantelpieces.
We are after that which is old and imperfect
ly picturesque, you know. Twice every year
there is what is called a 'dult' in Munich.
People from the country bring in everything
of whieh you can conceive for sale at a grand
fair in a common mart where shanties are
erected for that purpose. The things on sale
are very cheap odd gloves, old shoes, bones,
skillets; in fact everything from a coffin to a
wooden leg. We students revel in these
dults. We go there and buy the most anom
alous things for almost nothing. We will
see an old, torn cloth, pick it up with the
remark, 'By Jove, that's magnificent,' and
then purchase it for one-tenth of its marked
price; These dults are indeed a great bonan- '
za to us students. But wouldn't you like to
look into a sample studio?" Of course I
would, and bo I was conducted to one near
by, that of an American who has a reputa
tion for doing good work. As had been pre
dicted I found the room a very museum of
picturesque odds and ends. The artist, Mr.
K , was hard at work on the representa
tion of "A Strike in Pittsburg." Ho ex
plained his methods somewhat as follows:
"When we begin to originate it is natural for
ns to reach out after novel subjects. I con
clude to illustrate one of the famous strikes
in the Smoky City. I imagine the tall stacks
and chimneys of the city for a background,
pouring forth their clouds of Bmoke and
soot. To the right I decide to have the
mills which my strikers have just aban
doned. In the f oreground to the left is the
office of the proprietor, who is on the porch
listening to the speaker who has been select
ed by the men to submit their grievances.
The ground intervening between the factory
and the office is filled with strikers on their
way to the scene of debate. All the princi
pal figures are sketched from models on small
canvasses, and then transferred to the main
painting, which, being six feet by nine, is
rather too large to convey to the open air
where my models pose. The costumes I pur
chased at factories when I was in London. I
select my models from the crowd of candi
dates, then proceed to rig them up according '
to my notions and define the attitude which
I prefer. All the foremost figures and groups
are thus painted the smith who stands there
with his bare arms defiantly akimbo, the man
who is stooping for a stone as a bluff argu
ment, the wifo who is running up with her
little child and babe in arms, the other wife
who is trying to moderate her excited lord,
the gesticulating speaker, and all the various
other actors in the scene,"
"Don't your models sometimes desert you
at a critical time?" "Very rarely. Now
here is a touching instance in point" (bring-
l ing forward an unfinished painting of a sweet
little girl or perhaps thirteen sumners.)" ' I
have searched the streets many a day in the
hope of finding the original of this picture.
Alas. I know not what has become of her,
nnd I ainjiot at all competent to finish the
sketch from memory or from my own imagi
nation. She was a rare model and I deplore
her disappearance keenly."
Thanking both my eicerones for the
glimpse into artist life in Munich which
they had afforded me, I withdrew, convinced-
that artists do sometimes think a
little, and that there are some thoroughly
interesting, genial people in the ranks.
