Part of the City's Usufruct of
the Great Fair.
Results of the Energetic Work of
Prof. W. J. McGee.
Halsey C. Ives Tells of the Flans to
Increase the Usefulness of the
Collection Assembled.
Written for The Star and the Chicago Record
ST. LOUIS, December 27, 1905.
St. Louis Is to have two new museums as
usufruct of the fair. One will be for art;
the other for natural history and ethnology,
like the Field Museum at Chicago. Toward
the close of the exposition the St. Louis
Public Museum Corporation was organized,
and employed Prof. W. J. McGee, chief of
the department of ethnology, to secure ma
terial for a permanent exhibition. Prof.
McGee is one of tho ablest scientists in
this country and one of the highest author
ities upon ethnology. He has been con
nected with the 8mlthsonlan Institution for
many years and has won international
fame in his profession. He is a man of
great energy and determination, and is
likely to succeed In whatever he under
takes. He has behind him a board of lead
ing citizens, enthusiastic in their desire to
secure a flrst-class natural history museum
for St. Louis similar to that of Chicago.
They already liave about 2,000 names on
the rolls, and a membership committee 18
canvassing for reinforcements and making
it a popular movement. So popular has It
become that an average of 2,000 visitors
pass daily through the gate at the annex
of the art gallery, where the nucleus of the
museum is already Installed.
This collection comprises several hundred
carloads of exhibits, presented by foreign
governments and private exhibitors. The
ttnest and largest are from Japan. The col
lection includes almost every classification,
from the piaster cast of a monument to an
car of corn, and it is installed in an at
tractive manner. A low estimate places Its
value at $500,000, and in time Prof. McGee
Intends to till up the gaps, complete the
various sections and make it a symmetrical
museum. It will remain where it is for the
pre?ent. hut it Is the Intention to erect a
permanent and appropriate building near
the corner of Lind?ll boulevard and ivlngs
Highway, convenient to the street cars, so
that it may be easily accessible to the peo
ple. Perhaps some great man will come
forward nnd do unto St. Louis as Marshall
Field has done unto Chicago. The gift of a
building would be greatly appreciated. And
St. I.ou'.s has several tralnloads of million
aires. . ? i
popular Instruction in Art.
In the permanent portion of the art build
ing Is already gathered the nucleus of an
art museum, the finest collection of Ameri
can sculpture that was ever brought to
gether. and it is proposed to add to it the
already fine gallery of the St. Louis Mu
seum of Art and develop around it a school
of art, architecture and music which will
be a great thing for the city. "We acquire
manv rare and beautiful things," said Hal
sey C. Ives, who is the soul of the move
ment, "but there is seldom any effort to
teach our people how to utilize them. 1 his
institution is Intended for that purpose. It
is to be a workingman's art museum. We
propose first to take the permanent part of
the art building and make it an everlasting
monument of the exposition, io meet tho
plans we have made for the future It will
be enlarged by the addition of a magnificent
hall of architecture and an auditorium.
Long corridors -will be extended from
either end of the present building with a
garden between them, and connect with a
great temple of monumental architecture
surrounding a central court, .T-OxUo feet in
size, which shall be an architectural mu- i
scum. On either wall of this tempie six j
historical alcoves will be arranged in \
chronological order. In which will be in
stalled characteristic examples of the great |
periods of architectural development begin
ning with the Egyptian and including the
Assyrian, Greek. Roman, Byzantine, point- I
cd Gothic. Saracenic, Hindu, Japanese, pre
historic American and Italian renaissance.
Before each alcove, stretching across the
fifty feet from wall to wall, will be the
imposing front of some noble structure, il
lustrative of the style and the period repre
sented. .
Within, the alcove will be decorated In !
appropriate designs and adorned with the
best models of it3 particular school, with
full details In color and dimensions of
noted buildings, sculpture and other arclil- i
teetural features, while in the center of the
great hall will be a model of the ground j
of the Louisiana purchase exposition, with ;
all the buildings in place, carried out on a ?
relative scale?a permanent memorial of the j
exposition, which was the latest triumph J
of renaissance architecture.
"This plan for the illustration and com
parison of the great architectural epochs
of the world," continued Prof. Ives, "has
been submitted to leading authorities in
the l.'nited States and Europe, and they
have been unanimous In commending it.
Beyond, and connected with the hall of
architecture, are to be a library, reading
room, reception hall, lecture rooms and of
fices for the officials of the institution,
whi'.e at the extreme end will be a circular
auditorium, capable of seating several
thousand people, where it is proposed to
give popular lectures on art and interpret
great musical compositions, which shall be
free to the teachers and pupils of the pub
lic schools.
"The cost of the building In the first in
stance will be a million dollars, and It Is
proposed to raise the money by subscrip
tion in St. l^ouis. Much of the decorative
detail has been rescued from the various
buildings of the exposition and is now be
ing put Into permanent form bronze, stone
and cement. The great equestrian statue
of King St. Louis in bronze will stand In
front of the building, supported on"either
side by two groups representing tho At
lantic and Pacific oceans, which will be
well remembered by visitors to the exposi
tion. Special courses of lectures and musi
cal recitals will- be given In the smaller
halls, suitable for the students of the
schools of painting, sculpture and archi
tecture, which it is proposed to establish."
Munificence of the Wealthy.
In a city of the wealth and culture of St.
lxiuls there ought to be no difficulty in se
curing sufficient funds to carry out this
magnificent project. During the year just
closed nearly seven million dollars was be
stowed as gifts upon art institutions in the
I'nltv;! States. One million was contributed
to found an American Academy at Rome,
James Siiilman, president of the National
City Bank of New York, gave ?1(ki,uhu to
the School of Fine Arts in Paris as a token
of appreciation for what that institution
lias done for American students and Charles
K. Freer of Detroit proposes to bequeath
his collection of pictures and ceramics to
tc.e government of tlu- I'nited States and
put them in a building that will cost half a
million dollars, the entire gift amounting
to about $1,800,000.
Charles Parsons of St. Louis has recently
l?ft a collection valued at 1230,000 to ih-j

Art School of Instruction.
j It Is a department of Washington Un:
| verslty, although under a distinct and sep
j arate management. Its graduates receive
diplomas and degrees from the university,
and its students have the benefit of in
struction in modern languages, literature
and history. It Is thus possible for any
young man or woman to keep up the nec
essary technical training that the art school
of Instruction can give and obtain a liberal
education In the other departments of the
university at the same time.
The Museum of Art and School of in
struction were established by Halsey C.
Ives, who is still the director, and has been
from the beginning. He came Trom .New
York as an artist In 1873 and started a
school the following year. It was made a
department of the university shortly after.
Besides Its day classes, covering the tleias
of artistic design and workmanship In the
direct and applied arts. It maintains even
ing classes In various branches for me
chanics and other workmen who are em
ployed during the day and desire to im
prove their skill and taste.
It has given instruction to not less than
thirty thousand people. It has fifty-six
graduates now working as professional ar
tists In the city of New York alone who
have formed an association to glorify their
alma mater. Its classes have been filled by
the sons and daughters of all grades of
society?laborers, bankers, shopkeepers and
professional men. Its widest influence has
not been In the education of professional
artists; its policy has been not to deflect
young men and women from ordinary occu
pations and practical careers, but to ele
vate and develop the public taste. Hence
the public sympathy with the present
The art collections of the museum cover
a wide range and Include many notable ex
amples of painting, statuary, porcelain,
crystal, ivory, textiles, metal work and
other objects of art, which have been se
lected for their educational value and for
practical use by students. The museum has
been opened dally to the public and spe
cial exhibitions of private collections have
frequently been made. Popular lecture
courses have been given each season, and
It has been observed that the "the plain
people" rather than families of wealth and
leisure have availed themselves of the op
portunities offered by the museum in Its
exhibitions, lectures and entertainments, as
well as by Its school of instruction.
To Elevate Popular Taste.
It is proposed to Increase the usefulness
of this institution by adding architecture
to drawing, painting and sculpture, with an
allied school of music. The motive of the
movement Is to familiarize the public with
the best forms of art, and to elevate the
taste and Increase the enjoyment of the
people. Both the business and residential
sections of St. Louis are well supplied with
excellent examples of architecture. No city
in the country has a larger number of beau
tiful homes. The newly built sections are
especially admirable because the people
have avoided ugly blocks of houses and the
t? enty-five-foot lot and have provided
themselves with detached houses, surround
ed by lawns, partaking of a homelike spirit
and of the individuality of the owner. The
residence sections of other cities are too
often solid rows of blank and meaningless
fronts like the pigeon holes in a case, with
nothing to distinguish one from another
any more than prison cells. The departure
from that plan in St. Louis indicates a high
regard for the possibilities of living and a
greater degree of culture than is found in
la,rge Sltles; Therefore a school of
architecture founded upon the broad lines
Proposed by Mr. Ives ought to be welcomed
and well supported. This school does not

Body of Thomas Wickham Almost En

Slieolal Correspondence of The Star.
i PPER Marlboro, January 4, 1900.
Information was received here yesterday
afternoon of the death of Thomas Wlck
ham, a mechanic, fifty years of age, from
burns received during a fire, which de
stroyed a small tenant house on the farm
of Mr. Thomas Magruder, njsr GlennUale,
this county. Saturday evening. Wickham,
it Is stated, had just completed a job of
carpentry at the hom-; of the late Gov.
Oden Bowie, near Colllngtoti, and was on
Ids way to do some work near Glenndole.
He was an unmarried -nan, and had rented
ft small tenant house on Mr. Magruder'a
place, intending1 to keep bachelor's hall
Saturday evening about 7:;? o'clock Mr.
Duckett and hts brother-in-law. Mr. I.cula
Dent of Washington, who were In the yard
or the former's home, discovered r.an.ea
leaping from the Magrudor house, about
three-quarters of a mile away. As soon as
possible they reached tha burning building,
and were horrified to see the body of
Wickham, literally burning to a crisp. The
heat was so intense that it was im
possible to get near enough to the body to
take It out of the ruins, and the spectators
had to witness the growsime spectacle of
a human being burning to a crisp
When the fire had subsided Sufficiently,
what remained of the body?t)ij trunk arid
a portion of the head?was dragged out and
taken in a wheelbarrow to a nearby house.
Justice of the Peace Uenlamln H. Cites
of Seabrooke, acting In the rapacity of cor
summoned a Jury of Inquest, with
M T. Howard Duckett foreman. After
viewing the remains -.he Jury repaired to
the site of the burned building, where some
witnesses were examined. A small col
ored boy testified that lie iiad driven W.ck
ham to the building a few hours before the
fire broke out, and that the latter was
under the influence of liquor. A lamp wes
found, and the theory is that this lamp
must have been upset and the clothing of
the unfortunate man Ignited therefrom
Otherwise he could, no doubt, have escaped
from the burning building In safety.
The jury returned a ve.-d'ct of accidental
death, and the remains wero Interred at '
White Marsh, near Woodmore, this county.
Deceased has a brother?Arthur Wickham? 1
residing in Baltimore, and two brothers?

j "some yearx ago, while employed as an Inspector
by n large woven wire fence company, I was com

brought on by coffee poisoning.
"From childhood I had used coffee freely, and
for many years had no thought that there was
possible harm In it.
"But as time went on I gradually became the
victim of Indigestion, then of heart trouble, then
of habitual headaches, and finally was completely
knocked out by nervous prostration, which lost me
a gnd and profitable Job tliat I had held for years.
"At (list 1 scarcely knew what to do. as medi
cines teemed to have no lasting effect, but It was
tip to me to do something, and I turned my at
tention to my diet. Having read more or leas
'ilout the injurious effects of coffee I concluded
that I would experiment to see whether that wus
the .cause of my troubles.
"At first I cut down my cjffee allowance half
using Postum for the other half of my table
beversge. This helped me some, but did not do
what I wanted?It did not relieve me entirely. I
still suffered more or less with headache and
nervousness. So 1 just 'took the bull by the horns'
and cut the coffec off short. From the day that I
began to drink Postum exclusively my health bo
gan to Improve, and I have continued its use, as I
expect to do for the rest of my life.
"The result Is that I have not had a headache
In years, no man has bolter digestion, my nerves
are like iron and my mental powers are clearer,
more vigorous and p.ceurste than ever before.

me hale and hearty. I em do no less." Name
