AIDS TO CIVIC BEAUTT RESULTS or ART CBUSADE BE GUN IN BELGIUM. Streets to Be Made Picturesque for Pleasure and Enlightenment of People. Fr>ui th* Literary I>!**??r. One of the most far-reaching and remark able artistic crusades of recent years was Inaugurated In Belgium about seven years ago by a young Brussels artist, named Ku gene Broewerman. This movement, which atar'ed without money or Influence, has succeeded tn winning the co-operation ol Belgian cabinet ministers, and is now na tional In its scope. It finds expression In almost countless channels. Is altering the aspect of the Belgian cities, and Is restor ing to th>?lr modern environment something 'of the beauty of the ancient Flemish art. The society which has accomplished such Rotable results within so short a space ol time is known as "L'Oeuvre Xationale ut l'Art applique a la Rue," and .is declared Objects are: Emulation in Art. "To create an emulation among artist?, by discovering a practical way in whlca their works may be inspired with genera: Interests. "To clothe in an artistic form all that progress has made useful in the public life. "To transform the streets into picturesque museums comprising various elements ol education for the people. "To restore to art its one-tl3ie social mis sion. by applying It to the modern Idea in all the departments controlled by the pub lic authorities." Writing of the early work of the society In Harper's magazine Mr. Charles Mulford Jtobinson says: "I/Oeuvre's first act. after the early pub lication of Its principles, was a formal an nouncement in 1MM that It Intended to show Its faith by Its work. 'In at once conducting open contests for the most beautiful con struction on a new street of Brussels, thv Rue Joseph Stevens, and for various objects of public utility.- These latter were to In clude street fountains, electric light poles, flag staffs, newspaper-kiosks, &c. So In the first year there was promised an Imme diate starting of that work now so widely known, and of the example, which Paris has lately followed, of prizes for the most, artistic house fronts on new ftreets. Hie 'society knew, long before its ueiinlte or ganization had been completed, precisely ?what Its work should be. Artistic Signs. "In Its second year, l*l>.\ L'Oeuvre ar ranged an exposition of artistic signs, an cient and modern?held at the Jtfuseum of Brussels; organized (1) a competition for plans, and ("J) a competition for signs that had been executed. These were really the first undertakings of the socity by itself, and the subject was chosen with the special purpose of indicating the practical useful ness of Its teaching, and to combat 'the widely current but false idea that art Is In compatible with economy and the necessi ties of trade." ? ? ? There Is no pre tense that these signs are now the best to be seen in Belgium, but It is claimed that they were the best at that time, and that the improvement which has since taken place must be largely due to the impetus of competitions." In the next year. !*?*>. L'Oeuvre gave its attention to the decorative quality of ap paratus for public l'ghting. with the result that a single candelabrum, designed for the Place de l.t Monnaie in Brussels, has been reproduced in a great number of other ,-ltks Prizes were also offered for a poster f >r the Brussels fair and for the poster of a !j ? f extract company, and competitions were Instituted for designs of postage >sMRips t > commemorate the Brussels expo sition and for destirns f ir the new national coinage. The writ r continues: Treasures of Civic Art. "The fourth year of L'Oeuvre's existence. 1 J?7. a.is notable In Itrussels for the hold ing of a world's fair. Ud the society de cided to bend its energies that year to the fitting up at the exposition of a department <?f public art. in whi. li it might give a care ful and. It hoped, an inspiring. il'-m nitra tion of Its work and aims, and of the an cient glory of civic art in Belgium. On ac count of the latter purpose the exhibit was largely historical, and Antwerp. Liege, ?; -.ent. Brugts. Namur and many other liti-s joined with the enthusiasts of the city of Brussels to make jt both interesting and valuable. ?*Kaeh city 6< nt exhibits. In original or r? - production, of Its own treasures of public hrt in whatever sphere. These, carefully classified, were arranged in seven sections, as follows: (1) Monumental arid decorativt facades with tneir details; <_') monuments commemorative, etc.; l3) signs; (4) appara tus for public lighting aud decorations; (.?> fountains, wel'.s. pumps, etc.; (0) monu mental applications of painting and sculp ture; (7) decoration for public fetes. Tht whole made a showing of which Belgium had reas >n to be proud, and whence its am bition might be fed." So great was the general interest that the society felt encouraged to call a na tional and. later, an international, confer ence for the consideration of the decorative arts. The latter gathering was attended by delegates, including representatives from England, France, the United Slates. Sweden. Norway. Holland and Hungary. As one result of the convention the move ment is beginning to take root In other t eintries. Says Mr. Robinson: Belgium's Example. "Paris has founded a public society in likeness to L'Oeuvre; cities of Italy, led to ?ire;im of their lovely past, have followed the Belgian example In an organized effort t > reclaim It. The dictum that there Is no essential reason why cities should be ugly, why the centers which are gathering to themselves an ever !arg> r proportion of civ ilized mankind should not be built with a beauty worthy of their high position, that the artistic In public work Is as cheap as the hideous, and far more to be desired, Is ringing unchallenged through many thoughtful nations. Art dans la rue' has of late years be come a rallying cry that reaches farther than Belgium's little cities; but the move ment has found in them its strongest or ganization. gains confidence in the thought t-f their proud history, finds Inspiration In the loyalty to tradition of the earnestness ?>f their present effort to reclaim it. There is no art endeavor of the day that Is as Interesting as that of L'Oeuvre Xationale Belgie to foster art In municipal undertak ings. to bring beauty into the familiar phases of city life, and thus to raise its common level that has lately been so low." The Bible In Scotch. From the I .on don Chronicle. The Bible rendered Into "braid Scots" Is the latest crime in translation, far sur passing the horrors of even the "phonetic Bible" and the "modern Kngllsh" version. The criminal in this case Is a Canadian minister with the unsuspicious name of William Wye Smith. In an Introduction ho makes his apology for thinking such an offense desirable: "And thar are a hantle o' folk?and 1 meet them a'-gate? wha dlnna speak Scots thelrsels, but are keen to hear It, and like to read it. And thar Is anither consideration?the Scots tongue Is no gettln' extendit, and some folk think it may be tint a' the gither 'or lang." Of the translation Itself the following pas Cage from the twelfth chapter of Revela tions wtil give a fair Idea: And the ylrth h el pit the wumman; and the ylrth open't |ier mou', and swallowed up the spate that i the dragon belched forth frae his mooth. And the dragon was fu' o' wrath again the ; wnmman. and he gaed awa to mak war wl' . the lave of her bairns thae that war keepln' the commauns o' God, and han-ln the testl monie o' Jesus." This 1s something almost a* audacious as the attempt to make Shakespeare out as Bacon Sunday In Argentina. >'n.m the Buenos Ayres Herald. Shopkeepers should organize a movement for Sunday closing, not for half a day, but for the day. This would be a movement la the right direction in aid of the working men who have to attend the shops half a day or all day. There would be no possible loas to any on* if this were to be done; on the contrary it would be for the good of all parties, the owners as wall as the attend THE ARCTIC PROBLEM J! A CANADIAN' LAYS PLANS TO BEACH THE NORTH POLE. Will Us? Automobiles and Keep in Touch With Man by Wireless Telegraph. I From the Literary Digest. Andree tried to reach the north pole in a balloon; Nansen tried to walk there; and now Captain Bernler, a Canadian explorer, proposes to reach the pole in an automo bile, so we are told by the Marine Review Says this paper: "The automobiles in which he proposes to make the last stages of his trip to the north pole are adapted from a Russian in vention. Instead of wheels they have roll ers. Such invention has beea used, it is said, with success on extensive ice-packs similar to those of the polar regions. The nearer to the pole the closer is the ice packed, presenting after snowfalls a com paratively smooth surface for many miles at a stretch. Rough masses of ice and large spaces V open water are less com mon. The captain's plan Is to place his vessel in the ice-pack off the coast of Si beria, at a point which he calculates will drift him to the nearest point attainable to the pole. Wireless Telegraph. "When that point is reached he will dis embark working parties, who will carry wireless telegraph outfits, with which his ship is also to be furnished. The parties will drill holes In the ice and plant poles as landmarks as they proceed and estab lish their first station and storehouse about fifty miles from the ship. The road having been made as practicable as possible, the automobile sleigh will be put into commis sion to stock the station with supplies. In the meantime other parties will be work ing on toward the second fifty-mile station, and so on. There will be a second automo bile in reserve or for use where two can be usefully employed, as well as dog sleighs with teams of thirty dogs. "The sleighs on which the motors are to be placed will be so constructed as to be capable of being used for navigating open stretches of water, where such cannot be avoided. In case rough Ice is met with that presents an insurmountable obstacle to the automobiles Ihe machines will be disconnected and taken to pieces and por taged, a work In which Canadians, such as will form a large proportion of the explor ing company, have been familiar with since infancy. Power From the Wind. "Power for the electric dynamos will be furnished, when the conditions allow, by windmills, and there will be electric light ing and heating. There will be regular wireless communication with the civilised world through Dawson City. Capt. Ber nier's plan for drifting with the currents that carry the pack ice to the coast of Greenland is based on actual observation by men experienced in the polar seas, among whom are several members Of his own family." The ship in which Captain Bernler is to make the first stages of his trip is to be 133 feet long. 'Si feet beam. 18 feet depth of hold, and a little over 300 tons register, to run under both steam and sail. She will have a perpendicular stern-post with out side rudder, so that, either rudder or pro peller may be unshipped at will. This will prevent the rudder and screws getting fro zen in the Ice. as with other arctic ves sels. Captain Bernier's ship will also have a flush deck, which will prevent her being overweighted by flooding the /orward deck with water and slushy snow. To quote again: Stronger Than Fram. "The engines will be more powerful and better protected than in any other arctic vessel- hitherto constructed. She will have three masts, and her total sail area will be 1.000 feet more than -that'of the Fram. or square feet. Sb?- will be provision ed for a six years' voyage and will have a company of fourteen. These will consist of six scientific men. including a surveyor, an astronomer, geologist, a biographist. an artist, photographer and doctor. There will be three navigators, all qualified as captains; three sailors, one engineer and one assistant tngineer, who will be a mi chanic and electrician." - IHE "PATRICIAN NOSE." Influences Which Render It a Product of Culture. Ki 'in Uia'-kwotwI's Magazine. Th< molding influences which render tlie patrician nose to some extent a product of" culture seem mainly traceable to a close association which exists between certain muscles attached to the more flexible parts of the nose and those In the Immediate neighborhood. Nowhere Is the lasting mark of dominant mental habits more plain:;' seen than in the muscles about the mouth. They are continually in action when w? exercise the will?either In self-control or in attempts to control other men or things? and every time they come into play they give a chastening tug at our noses. Finally, it may be said that, for the maintenance of a patrician nose at its best, a well bal anced mind is almost as necessary as caie fulness In outward behavior. Its chastlt.. of tint and outline Is endangered, not only by high living and low thinking, but also by the habitual and unrestrained Indul gence of emotions generally deemi d inno cent, and even laudable. These, through their strange secondary influence upon tut nerves which regulate the circulation and nutrition of the skin of the face, are quite capable of Inducing a certain coarseness ol expression curidusly akin to that Induced by indulgence in vicious pleasures. Herein perhaps, may be found some sort of ci ud and general recipe for an aristocratic nose, which is offered. In all good faith?but with no absolute warranty?to every one with good powers of mental assimilation. There can be no doubt that the ordinary plebeian nose, with its somewhat low bridge, concave profile and wide nos'rils. Is, above all others, the nose which Is proper to mankind. All other types are de veloped from it. Even now the whole hu man species, of whatever race, possesses it in early Infancy. Amendments of Local Interest. Senator McMillan has given notice of an amendment to the general deficiency bill appropriating $7.51)0 to purchase the entire collection of notes, records and plats of survey belonging to Win. J. Latimer and relating to lands in the. District of Colum bia. He also proposed an amendment appropri ating $.\000 to John Stewart for extra com pensation for services rendered by him to the government in connection with the Potomac flats case. Mr. Galllnger gave notice of an amend ment appropriating Slo.519.20 to pay to Elizabeth L. W. Bailey of the District of Columbia, administrator of the estate of Davis W. Bailey, deceased, for a judgment against the District In the Supreme Court of the District in 1892. Army Orders. Lieut. Col. Samuel R.

Penaaoola, has .taken the Spanish architectural form for a new church building for the parish. This Is most appropriate. Pensacola was in aU Its early history a Spanish colonial city; Its streets and public places are known by Spanlsh names; many of the people have Spanish blood In their veins; there Is still the Spanish atmosphere there, as In St. Au gustine, although modern Pensacola is truly American. . ,.r: Visitors to that city expcct to see some-, thing recalling the ancient history of the place; but such Is the farce of Innovation that, with the passage of time, all relics are likely to be obliterated, and no distinc tion be traceable between a town In Span iish Florida and a town In Oklahoma. To counteract this tendency?at least in pattr the new church building is to be a return to ancient forms. |t will resemble a Span ish mission church in general style, with here and there the graceful ornamentation that Is seen In the Seville Cathedral. ' s American Economy. From Alnslce's Magazine. American economy is the eeonomy that consists In doing things on a large scale. In producing much rather than in sating little. Yhe old system of economy consists Ir. picayune retrenchment. "Take care of the pennies and the dollars, will take care of themselves," Is, from a modern point of view, as false as it is -trite. That 100 French families can live on what one American family throws away Is an ex?g geraUon, but were It not It would lndlcatc the soundness of American economy, not the lade of it. Whence comes the tremen dous energy of our nation In business. In production, in growth generally. In practi cal Improvements and inventions? It comes fiom a high standard of living. To do much work nourishment is nrnrsssn and who are so well.nourished as Americans? What ration consumes so much good food. In what other country do the people demand so many luxuries? Where do they demand so much from life generally. In social equality. In full opportunity for pleasure and education?
