Ho came to Ui l.i country rtlmply because he hudicd tt see Anicrha. He wilt Htuy a fortnlent with us und then nit south ward, to Fiurliln, Cuba, he doesn't know where. A number of ijh were trylnK to per m.irto lilm, since he muHt quit Now York, to go to Saw Orleans assuring him thut It was beautiful down there lovely architecture, rare colors, "as swell as Venleo," norne one. In the crowd ventured; soft climate, "beaux ingles" rmlncntly palatable, good op?ra mid eating, nil In fact that the soul of mi artist i'iu!d desire, but Pascln did Jiot succumb to our enthusiasms. Hnme 'thlng thut somebody to!d him years ngn tlxed Florida In bis mind ns desirable, and bcslde.1 he firmly Insists that Flor ida Is not no far nwny a New Orleans! Not Hint It Is our affair' The choice of h.ibllHt by tin artlt of Imagination Is often swayed by trifles light ns air. The planting of Gauguin upon Tnhltl nnd Su Vinson upon Sniuoa rould not have lieen nrrangid by others, find the only tmlnt Hint concerns us Im that In ,thte plarea they found foil upon which iliey could flourish. I'nllke Gauguin ntid Stevenson, Pascln Is not looking for an nsylum. Ho Is n pa"." en kit bird. He sure be wIM abstract honey from Flor ida utttinitrh personally I ,im not nt hII sure .that Florida herself will recognize l'.wln'i" product mm honey. To uu dl-lntrrrtril Northerners It ! will be gr-at fun to see what I'ascln brings b.irk In bis portfolios from down t'irn. For that matter, since he Is to be Willi us a fortnight, tve had better watch out ourselves. Mr. Heiison'' "Dodo"' said of the marriage atnte, "It ' 1s both h responsibility and tin oppor-1 i unity, nnd the k.ime may be cud of I Mr. Pascln's visit to us. It la all cry well for us to brush our hair pompadour fashion, and sit straight up and down In our chairs In respectable poses. Wo can't, of course, keep that sort of thing up forever. Wo cannot even keep it up two weeks, nnd the ex actly wrong moment of the tanyo is 'the moment that Mr Pascln will catch "us, you may bo sure. As an artist ho s not enamoured of masks and poses. Ho has not said so, but Judging by hh drawings, I should say l n Is not deeply concerned wIMi lecordmg the outward aspects of r- snectHhllltr. Itesnectabllllv is a thlni; ' that s sure to get Itself recorded, nuto- J matlcally If no other way, and for that I reason probably Mr. Pascln lets It alone. ! There Is no crying need to publish it. ; since It publishes Itself. He has none of lie anltnos.ty against vlrtuo that seems ' to put bitterness Into the pens of our ' modern F.tiglish satirists. Ho In, to j put the matter ns simply ns poullIe ' more concerned with beauty than with satire, although satire Is thete. It as though the beauty In his drawings !s conscious, the satire unconscious. Digging In subterranean pa.ssages his its dangers nnd so have the senrchlngs of an artist among the wreckages of tho human stream. The topic Is un Invit ing one and one that must be discussed and understood In America before wo can hope to make New York the capital of the arts. Wo Have poised mor.ilUy and art in the scaliw before this and sometimes morality wins and sometimes net wins bin far. in each decision, there Is always n oire that insists Hut there has ls-en Juggling with the scales! So much depends in young couniHej. such us ours, for Instance, upon who :s umpire!

Hr Cour r.y of Knotdlar UiiUrlu, lance may happen throughout the win tcr. That admirable Institution, the Mac dowrll flub, opened Its doors this week upuii thu first of Its series of fortnightly shows. These, shows, we havo to re Iternte from tlmo to time, are arranged In a fashion that dispenses with the. academical Jury system. The artists form In groups of six, eight or ten, ac cording to their sympathies or prin ciples, hlro the gallery for a fortnight and hang what canvases they choose. There are no stem committees In the. way, nothing but the simple, little mat ter of raising the price of tho rental. This doesn't seem to be dllllcult, and In truth, divided among eight on ten as It usually Is, It Is a trifle. This Ingenious Idea has prospered at the Mnedowell Huh and during the last few years mcasuijble results have been obtained. In fostering young talent no other gallery has been mi effective. Numbers of young people, who could nol possibly puss tho orthodox Juries here gain a hearing and find ndmlrcrn. A wild looking picture thnt frightens one at tlrst glance Is found upon examina tion to hae qualities of nature. Then In month or two the artist Is exhi biting In Fifth avenue shops or In Inter national exhibitions. This desplto tho fact that the Macdowoll Club Is very much hidden uway, that the public Is I onlv half nware that It bus the tirlvllece of seeing theso plenties and that six or eight visitors to the exhibition nt a time constitutes a crush A crush Is all very line and desirable. no doubt, but not so Important sn the chance, thnt is given for an artist to see his Idea upon a wall and to Judge at la.t for himself as to whether It speaks ns It should, or speaks at all It can be readily Imagined that some of the worst pictures Hut have ever been painted appear In these shows. They do no harm. They make a foil for the i surccssc. Honest failures are not dis graceful, though Insincere pictures are. i Insincere pictures are rare at the Mac dowrll Club. The opening show this year Is rather I suave, gentle and unremarkable. In ' Hint, history repeats Itse'f. Tho club I last year put great reitralnt upon Itself In the early part of the season and didn't venture anything wild nnd cii- blstlc until the first fury of the art crit- ( nlwTs very savage In the early autumn, hud blunted Itself upon other I things. The chlif performers are An- netta Saint Caudens. Helen Furnsworth i Mears uml Hubert C.

II., In Maioh of iust year. Ho was seven years younger than tits more famous brother Augustus, lu whom he was always devoted, and with whom he worked for many years. Tho Daniels' (lallery Is more New Yorklsh than ever. The fashion of the pictures It exhibits Is "up to the min ute," ns Miss Mary Harden said of her gowns. Tho swiftness of life and the vustness of the changes that are taking place before, our ejes ure apparent even In the names of the artlst.t that Mr Daniels presents to us. .orach, Wort man, Lulls, Kueltne, Mnnlgault. Such names! How ttlp Van Wlnklo would stare and blink at them. Who are there people? Not a single good old fashioned American In the list; not a Cadwallader, Middle, Cabot or even a Smith! Vet when you talk to these young people you And that their accents nre perfect nnd thnt they know more of slang nnd the Constitution of 'the Fulled States than you do yourself One heats tho waves lapping around On Inhibition at Horlln Photographic Co, King tho base of the Liberty Statue a one gazes at the vivid colors, and one won- ders, seeing our past so far away from us, nt the perplexities of the future that seem to bo swooping tn us. Wo hopo that Mr. Daniels and the others w ho keep th" tires going beneath "Tho ..... .. .... -siL.!i, -ar-viij-t.'(..v r . Melting Pot" will have firm hands and stendy ones when the mass finally be comes molten nnd It Is time to steer it into permanent forms. The pictures of the opening show now on all have features to arrest tho at tention, being painted for tho most part with great decision ami force, Jerome Myer's "Italian Festival" nnd Mrs. Pen dleton's "Landscape" being tho only works that may be said to have nny thing like reticence. I. eon KroU'a nnd (Ins Magcr's landscapes arc among the "strong" ones, seemingly painted by athletes at the top of their training, but giving us agreeab'.Q nature for ail (hat. Mr, Magcr's method at present Is a trlflo too much like Vnn flogh'a, but that Is one. of the things that are Im plied by being "up to the minute." liror Nordfcldt's bench scene has u touch of caricature, but It Is done In attractive color. Stuart Davis shows a portrait, a '.nrgo lady done In hot colors, the out lines In crimson and shadows In mauve, that wc regret extremely not to have liked overmuch. Mr Davis frequently figures with great ecl.it In tho Mucdow e.l Club exhibitions and Ills canvases of the Homeric Times, by Leon are so decorative and witty that we havo acquired quite a soft mot for them. Mr. Illrubaum of the Ilerlln Photo graphic Company hn.s rescued another young artist from oblivion for us and given him a show. The iinmu of the now artlsl Is Herbert Crowley and he makes drawings In pen nnd Ink which aro elaborated und detullrd to a degree thnt will astonish you, water color draw ings of u whimsicality that recalls .lohn Tennlel und little grotesqiio carvings that seem to have come out of medlieval (lermnny Instead, Mr. HIrnbnutn as sures us, they came out of a dingy New York hull bedroom. He Is nil Englishman, this nrtlst, wlio has chosen to make New York his home. He thought at onn tlmo of n mimical career, ibut his timidity made concert appearances Impossible, and after a few recitals with varying success In Paris and New York ho finally gave up these attemplH and devoted himself lo ar!. Jlo studied for u while In the Academic I ill I on. but tho Instructor happened lu ho unsympathetic und nsaLslnd him little. For the munt part lie has been self-taught. Ho has lived quietly nnd unnoticed lu Now York, but one or two tiny pen und Ink drawings In tho hls torlo exhibition of modern art nt the Armory finally uttracted and held tlu attention of a few visitors. Kngllah Inllueures are naturally ap parent In Mr, Crowley's work and thu chief la Aubrey lleardsloy's, with Ten nlol recond. Crowley multiplies tho In tricacies of Iteardsley to such au extent that wo doubt If any modern audlencn can follow him to I tin end of It ui'.h enthusiasm. Ho Is very fond of pattern ns such and frequently weaves cob webby backgrounds of animal nnd llor il forms for a background to tho main inutlf, His moM ambitious drawing Is thn "Temple of Dreams"! probably thn drawing thut Is referred tn In the cata logun a.s having required years nf labor, Microscopic forms nf flowers nnd butterflies mBke a background which fades to a halo of light nrnund the top of thn Temple, Tho repeated units In this pattern are laboriously achieved, Heardsley had an audience, He se cured It early In his short career. It was with one oyo upon this nudlence that lie lavished invention and eleganc. upon the tassel of a bell ropo In the pjtfccura comer of a drawing, for h knew hli nudlence w with him, nd that the lively touch would be esteemed as wit. Crowley's "Temple" lacks th.s sense of "touch." very likely because of the hall bedroom. The repeated background has some thing hopeless in It like the carvings of a pesoner who works to pass the time, despairing of npptnuso. One thinks, In estimating It. of the workers at oriental rugs who also tolled nt their tasks during terms of years, and who must often, ns they wovo In their re peats, havo been thinking of something besides tho motif. In their case some thing outside themselves saved them from incohanlcnllsm; the fact, that ns the months ran along they were con tinually running out of wools, nnd the now wools never quite matched the old. When Mr. Crowley breaks through his reserve, to speak of his drawings, somo of bis hearers aro Impressed by bis profundity and "others are con fined," says Mr. Hlrnbuum Hi his prefacn to the catalogue, "as If they were listening to Gertrude Kudu's cryp tic anil Incoherent complexities. 'Hop ing things will happen Crowley will till you lu describing b.s ilriwing, has noth.ng to do with dream'). Bakst. "A dream ennnot happen. A dream i.. It seems to me that we nre made up ol threo parts: tho circumference, the centre, and tho spaco In between. The circumference, combats evil; the centre Is the conclusion we come to from that combat; the space In between consists of conclusions purified. From this space III between arises a cono Blmp"d figure of vibrating truth which rises higher and higher as experience comes to us. "From tho combat of good and evil,, dreams uro born. T.lfo cannot exist without tho dreiun, Tho dream cannot exist without life. Developed llfo de velops tho dream. Tim liner thn conolu s.oiim tho purer the life and the dreams. Tho purer the dreams the purer tho llfo to come. AH this reminds us of Blake and his message of emancipation from reality through the shaping spirit of Imagination, nnd although Illako is practically unknown to Crowley, art seems to be for loth men merely nn In adequate means of expression for a spiritual message." With Mr. Crowley's works are shown a number of the recent designs hy I.enn Hakst, the celebrated I'rancn-nuselan painter. ART NEWS AND COMMENT. PVOI, JIANSHU has designed a medal to bo Issued to nuMnbern of the Circle of Friends of the Medallion as the eleventh In the series. Thn ocenrion Is the celebration this au tumn of the south anniversary of the founding of the city of New York, Not only wern houses erected by itil 1 on Manhattan, but in thnt yeur Adrlaen lllock built tho tlra ship, which ho culled the Ito-tliss, thereby forecasting by the name of Ms nitio yacht tho spirit of enterprise, that was to Characterize the Manhatt.inese for threo hundred years tn come. Tho obverse shows an Indian offering a Hollander tho pipe of peace, A Dutch ship, a beaver and a windmill are ap proprlatn additions. The reverso offers New York enthroned, holding the torch of enlightenment In her right and a skyscraper in her left hand. Commerce, seamanship nnd wealth are hinted at by fitting symbols. On one face the letter ing roada, "New Netherland Founded 16Il"i on the other "Tercentenary, New york 1614." These designs have been ppTovd fcrihs committee in ohrg,of Grotesque in Bronze, the Commercial Tercentenary of New York. From the bulletin of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts wo learn that Mr. Mun shlp's lltllo bronr.e group called "Play fulneus," which was purchased by Mrs. C. C. Hovey from the sculptor last spring, will bn exhibited In the institute In the Martin II. Kaon memorial collec tion. This work is one of those that Mr. Manrhlp executed during his resi dence In Homo mi a fellow of tho Ameri can Academy. Helen Farnsworlh Mears. some of whosn sculptures are In the current exhibition of tho Macdowell Club, was born In Wisconsin. Her llrrt commis sion was for a figure representing thnt State, which won her a prize of ftiO In a competition. In Kurope she stud ied with Collin, Merson, Puescli and Charnentler and for a number of years after her return to America sho assisted Mr. Saint fJaudens In his studio. Ex amples of her work are In the Hmtth- sonlan Institution, the Metropolitan Mu seum of Ait, Downer College nnd tho Milwaukee Public Library. Sho haa recently completed a heroic figure for a fountain to be erected In a public park In ICati Claire, Wis. This figure will bo placed In a basin, forty feet In diameter, the architects of which aro CSeorge H. 1'ost & Sons. Hubert C. Doran, whose paintings are prominent In tho same exhibition, rays of himself: "I nm a pupil of Kenneth Hayes Miller. I am probably Interested In mural decoration as much as any other form of painting, but do not ex ix?ct to specialize In that branch more than any other, ns to me art Is merely expression f ontself, no matter what branch of nrt Is chosen. During the past sunimtr I worked as assistant to Abbott II. Thayer. I love Hie work of the early Italians and of most of the great masters dawn to the modern Frenchmen, Of the great modern tri umvirate Van fiogh, Ci-zanne and Ciati guln, the latter npp-als to me most strongly, though I love them nil. Of our own Americans, Davles, Miller, Hyder. Hlakelock, Martin. Twachtmnn and Hunt appeal lo mn very much." Two young Fnglish rtcheM of prom ise, James Mcltey and William P. ltob Ins, lane a Joint exhibition in the Knoedler Galleries vrhlch is sure to meet with appreciation and npprobnilou. Mr. Mcltey apparently felt, like many another etcher, that the moment he hnd earned tho right to call himself a professional he must start off touring tho world In search of picturesque ma terial. He found It In Tetuan. Henachle, nnd Henlcnrlo, but as It also often hap pens, be did even better at home. Ho has a tendency to the extreme of sim plification, such ns lu No. 21, "The Shower." where the subject Is n slmpbi hnystack with n few scratchy lines in the sky to show the breaking clouds, but simple as it is, the soft wet day is all there. In this and some similar Im pressions ho Is at his most original mid best. Two very beautiful nnd decorative canvases by (aslon I,a Touclio have also recently arrived at Knoedler's, ono of which, "Lcs Cygiies," we reproduce. The Greenwich Village Inn. Just off Washington Square, appears to tie an art centre as well as an Inn. In the upper galleries at present there Is a dis play of posters nnd sketches by Noonn Pcrnc-idn und St. Clalro Hreckons, and In the lower room, where the artists of the nelghbonhoo;! foregather for food nnd conversation, a numler of drawings by Btuart Davis aro to lie seen. Most of these drawings nre so slight that Mr. Davis's philosophy of life cannot bo deciphered at present, further than thnt he seems to be greatly preoccupied with large ladles. All nf his sitters are remarkable for weight and width. It Is of course poeslblo that' these ladles are boarders at tho Inn and In that ens a loyal emphasis upon the width would bo pardonablo to a frequenter of the Institution nnd would endear him to tho management. Artists nre up tn these little tricks sometlniPH. The October number of Art In Amrr Ira cnntalnw an excellent study of the water colors of WIuhIow Homer hy Kenyon Cox, a paragraph from wblch HUlIlces to show his enthusiasm and his Justness: "There must bn rea,ons, morn or less valid, for a preference; so vividly felt -felt, nt times, by Homer himself--for these water colors over his morn elub orato works In nil. and ono of these reasons I liuvo already touched upon; It Ik Homer's extraordinary technical mastery of tho medium, If from the tlrst bo painted better In wnter eolorw than hn was ever uble lo do In oils, it may he said that, In the end, he painted better In water colors with more vir tuosity of hand, more senso of the right use of tho material, more decisive nias tory of Its proper resources ihan al most any modern has been able to do In oils. One must go back to Ituboss or Hals for a parallel, In oil painting, to Homer's prodigious skill In water cslor, nnd perhaps to the Venetinns for any thing so perfoctly right In Its technical manner. His felicity nnd rapidity of handling aro a delight, and to see thn way, for Instance, In which all tho com plicated forms and foreshortenlngs of the head of a palm treo am given In a few Instantaneous touches, each touch of a shape one would hardly hnve thought of. yet each Indisputably right In character, Is tn have a new revela tion of the power of sheer wnrkmsn ehlp. Bvrrv Sargent's stupendous clev erness In water color Is not mom won derful, though Sargent sesms to be by Herbert Crowley. thinking n little of thn brllhanrv of hh method, whereas Homer Is tb nr single-mltidcdly, of the oMert or i . effect to be rendered, and Is rlever or because he I sure of what he u,.nt- do and sel.cs Instinctively on tbe r est way of doing It."

This anecdote concerning a HTf&t name Is recounted by a writer In Lr Mai In: "I Tinve been tnklng long walks In these streets, formerly so populous, now deserted, of Helleville, ha Vlllette an' Montmartre.
