visit of a painter to the Morgan me?
morial to-day it was discovered that
the almost priceless portrait of the
dead financier, done several years ago
by the Peruvian artist, Carlos Baca
Flor. had been almost ruined by the
extreme humid heat of the !bm few
James Britton, the visiting artist,
pointed out to the curator that the col?
ors had moved noticeably, and that the
heat had caused deep, dark brown
fissures in the originally smooth black
^?irface sf the subject's frock coat.
It was ir.plained that the artist must
have used paints containing asphaltum
SI tar, which have a tendency to creep
in hot weather. Some artists use such
paints because of their peculiarly
, smooth and velvety softness when

Mr. Hritton said: "The HgtUO of Mr.
Morgan appears to have lost its right
side, the reddish underground of the
painting coming through the fissures,
which can be remedied either by re
pa'nting or by locking up with a good
coat of hard varnish. The chief artistic
value of the painting came from the
superb color effect produced by the
very substances which are now causing

Mme. Yanderveldt explained that the

fresh vegetables arrives every morn?

M. Jaeoasain, the officiel engaged,

Mme. Vaadervelde aad I also visited

With the Belgian Ministry, has done
much to identify the ROW spirit of de?

of peace and internat ional friendship,
M. Vaadervelde is known to have been
one of the most resolutely convinced
thnt in this crisis in her fate Belgium
could not he content with a formal pro?
test, but that she must ficht f^r her in?
dependence to her last man.
In a country hitherto supposed to be
exceptionally under clerical domina?
tion it is sigaiftoaat that it is a very
small part the Church has taken in
this time of great emotional strain.
It will be interesting to see the effect

at this crucial moment may have upon

the power of the resistance in the

Lack of enthu?i?sm among Germans
and an abundant supply of patriotism
among Frenchmen are among the main
features of the European war, accord?

"What, in your opinion, is the real
of the present trouble in Eu?

"There are two or three reasons,"
he replied. "In the tirst place, Europe
for the last forty years has been a
creat battlefield, the various nations
representing-, so to speak, aimed camps.
The cost of the upkeep for the arma?

the burden fell, as usual, on the shoul?
ders of the peasants. The rulers real?
ized that this condition could not keep
up much longer. In other words, they
would have to come to a showdown,
and the Austrian declaration of war
against Servia was as good an excuse
as any other.
"Then, again, the political pot- in
almost every country in Europe were
boiling to-the danger point. You can?
not mention n single European nation
of any consequence that did not have
on its hands serious internal troubles

people was by the cry of 'To arms!

Germany, by reason of her scientific
advancement, shrewd business acumen
and business methods, had been tread?

of a tight they did not even stop to

whether any one could take a hand."

The very powers that are lighting her
