THE, PITTSBTJKG DISPATCH, SUNDAY, ' OCTOBER 5, 1890. & 12 X -WmW "Weddings, weddings, -weddings, past and future! Any number of them are looming up for the coming Veeks, and a number are already events ol the past. Several of more than ordinary interest that are to occur shortly are made mention of to-day. One of the most interesting and fashion able will be celebrated on the 16th of the month in the pretty little Presbyterian Church in Edgeworth, when Miss Lillie, the only daushter of Colonel Bobert P. Kevin, will wed Mr. Thomas Anderson Standish, a young gentleman both by birth and ability worthy to claim her. The marriage will be the happy consum mation of a courtship began some years ago, when the bride-elect was a tiny tot in short frocks. For from the period 15 years ago, when Mr. "VT. S. Standisn moved into Edgeworth from the north and prominently identified himself and his interests with Pittsburg, his son, Mr. Thomas, has been paying devoted attentions to Miss Lillie. And he has proven, by the successful man ner in which he did "speak for himsell" that the advice given the ambassador of his famous ancestor. Miles Standish, by Pris cilla,the Puritan maiden, was not necessary in his case. Miss Xevin is, as before stated, the only daughter of Colonel Kobert P.Nevin, the old est representative of the Kevin family, nota ble since it entered the State over a hun dred years ago, for its intellectual and brainy men and talented and cultured la dies. Sbe is a sister to a auartec of brother;' of which Mr. .Ethelbert Nevin, the young composer, is one. each of whom have already attained high eminence in their chosen pro fessions, and are noted for their marked musical ability. Colonel John I. Kevin, deceased, of army record and editorial fame, was a cousin of the young lady, and Mr. Theodore W. Kevin is a cousin, as is also Miss Ada Kevin.his sister, who rites over the nam de plume of "iliss Nothing." Mr. Standish is everything desirable as a hus band, as he has been asalover. Of unimpeach able family, a direct descendant of the famous Miles Standish, handsome, intelligent and clever, he is a prim favorite with all his as sociates and a high position in both the com mercial and social worlds will always be at his command. Ihe tedding festivities will be conducted on an elaborate scale, invitations having been is sued to 03 guests for tbo reception at the beau tiful home aDd 600 for the church ceremonies. The bridal parly is to be a large one, as it com prises a nnmber of the young friends of the bnaai pair. Miss Jennie Stearns, of Chicago, will be the maid of honor, and the bridemaids chosen are Miss Irene McVay, Miss Mollie Chaplin, Miss Grace Ogden. Miss Ethel Stan dish. Miss '-Dot" Kremer. of Carlisle. Pau, and Miss Anderson, of New Cumberland. "V. Va. The ushers will be Mr. Arthur Kevin, Mr. Al Kin:. Mr. Harrv Richardson. Mr. Robert Tot ten and Mr. Fred Irwin. Mr. Standish is to have for his best man Mr. R. P. Nevin, Jr. Mr. Ethelbert Kevin Mill preside at the organ, playing a wedding march which he has written for the occasion. The WnUcficld-LoK-i-j- Wedalng. A very charming East End maiden will ab jure her name on the evening of the 13th, when Miss Annie Regis Lowry becomes Mrs. James Alfred Wakefield, at the residence of her mother, Mrs. Josephine Denholm, in the Eaet End. And with the union will go the best wishes of a host of young people who have known the interesting couple long enough to become thoroughly in love with them and te join the long line of older and more mature admirers that watch with interest the details of the coming wedding. The young lady is considered one of the most attractive and fascinating to be tonnd in the aristocratic East End, where attractive and fascinating maidens are commonly supposed to abound. The groom elect is of a very old and well known family in Pittsburg, and is a graduate of the Meadville cli-s of 'SS. During his col legiate course he distinguished himself as a de bater and a fraternity man, and since his ad mission to the Allegheny County Bar, at which he now practices, he has continued to dis tinguish himself, and has attained, as one of the older practitioners expressed it, "an alarm ingly large practice for so youcg a man." Quite a large reception will succeed the wedding ceremony, alter which the usual wedding trip will betaken. The Temperaneo Evnnccliil's Daughter. Calvary Episcopal Church, round whose name lingers the memory ot so many pretty and important weddings, will be honored Wednesday evening by the nuptial service of Miss Frances Josephine Murphy and Mi. Charles Enow don Holmes. The childhood and girlhood of the bride-elect have both been spent in Pittsburg, with the exception, perhaps, of college days, and as a result she may claim an almost unlimited circle of acquaintances and friends that have been attracted to her by her sweet, winning disposition and peculiar grace and charm in conversation. Miss Murphy is a daughter of the famous Francis Murphy, whose own wedding notice is yet fresh in the minds of the public, and the presence of his brido at tho wedding will imbue the occasion with an extra amount of intere.t. Mr. Holmes is one of the proprietors of the Monongahela House and so well known both in business and social circles as to need no in troduction. Of commanding presence, and possessed of an unusual supply of manly beauty he unites with the outward graces, tact and gentleness that Insures him recognition and remembrance from the lowest to the high est. Mr. Holmes will bid farewell to bachelor existence with an elegantly appointed dinner at the Monongahela House Tuesday evening. w The JonM-Dilworth Nnpttala. On the evening of the ZJdinst., in the East Liberty Presbyterian Church, Miss Daisy Dil wortb and Mr. W. L. Jones will plight their troth. It will be remembered the engagement was announced late last spring and Interest re garding the coming event has been steadily in creasing in the ultra circles of which the two families are considered a part. Miss Susie Dilworth, a young debutante ot great beauty, will attend her sister to the altar, and with the execution of ushers and best man, will be the only attendant. A small and in formal reception will be given at the residence of the bride's mother after the ceremony attbe church. Miss Dilworth is a daughter of the late F.

Williams & Orr's Meteors Hahry Davis' Museum Curiosities, Eta. World's Museum curiosities. Etc. The above are the theatrical attractions for this week. The past week has not been very profitable to theater goers, however well the managers have come out. Miss Ellsler has been seen in two plays of no very remarkable character, and she has nevertheless added to her large reputa tion as a clever, high-principled actress. It she could only get hold of a strong play, with a part nicely compounded of pathos and humor in equal quantities, for herself there is no reason Why she should not achieve a great success. Oliver Byron and his wife have played to larger audiences than ever before, and at Har ris' Theater "Fort Donelson" has scored a real success as a military play of intense interest very well played. It is a fact that the public would bewail more if they realized it that good stage managers are wonderfully scarce. Hardly a play has been seen here this season which has not suffered considerably for lack of competent stage man agement. Miss Wainwright's production of "Twelfth Night," owed not a little of Its artistic success to tho first-class stage manage ment of Mr. E T. Backus, who, it will be re membered, played the clown Feste also. The late Dion Boucicault was a wonderful stage manager, and actors tell me that nobody could conduct a rehearsal as skilfully as he. In Boucicault, of course, were combined a curious variety of, talents, and as actor, author and manager it is doubtful if we shall ever see his like again. Mr. Bronson Howard, the best of American dramatists, has won a reputation as a stage manager. He is very careful of scenic details, and incidental business. It is said that as soon as he has com pleted a play in manuscript he goes through the lines with a miniature theater on the table before him. A little stage is fitted up with scenery and is supplied with figures, which be moves about as the sense of the speech makes necessary, ana tue movements tnus aeciuea on he sets down in the manuscript of the play. When he comes to rehearsal he takes his place in the first or second row of the orchestra in stead of on the stage, as a great many stage managers do, and proceeds to move bis players as previously he has moved bis little dummy figures. This may appear somewhat mechan ical, butit is the only way to get exactly the enects aestred and to secure the pictures. Billy Crane, the comedian, said recently "Mr. Howard's patience at rehearsal is one of the most wonderful things I ever saw. Ire member particularly on one occasion how he worked with a player for something like two hours, striving to have a line delivered so as to convey the meaning that he intended, while the rest of the companystoodaroundand wondered at the amount of stupidity there was in the world. Finally the player came down to the footlights, evidently having struck an idea, and made the following speech: 'Mr. Howard, I don't quite understand what you mean, but will you allow me to show you the way in which I accent I think this might be played?1 Mr. Howard assented at once and the player re sumed the scene. When the line was reached the player said it precisely as Mr. Howard bad been asking to have it delivered ever since the beginning of tbe two hours. Everybody looked at Howard with a smile. Mr. Howard Smiled too, and said: 'Yes, that will do very well. Your idea is very much better than mine.' "By jove, I never saw such self-restraint in my life. It was simply sublime." , ... A recent Issue of the Chicago Herald con tained the following: "The author of 'U. S. Mail' Is C. Jenks. Just who C. Jenks' Is we are unable to say, hut It would not be a great sur prise to learn that the name Is only an alias and that the author is in real life Hobart Brooks, the Washington correspondent of the New Haven Segisler, who is the manager of the company, and who was aided ,by Max Ihmseu, correspondent of the Pittsburg I'otl." Mr. C. Jenks is not Mr. Hobart Brooks, nor is Mr. Hobart Brooks in any sense whatever the author of the "tj. S. Mail." Pittsburgers know very well that George C Jenks wrote the "C S. Mail," but now that tbe farce has scored an unmistakable success he may expect to bear that everybody connected with the production, actors, managers and backers, has a prior claim to the authorship. This is always tbe way. Tbe author of a play must be prepared to ac cept the role of the father of a new-born babe as soon as his offspring begins to coin money. You know how much the father connts for when the baby airives well, the author amounts to less. Mr. Fulton, the capable advance, agent of the of the Marks' Internationals, told me this story yesterday: "Lieutenant Frank Travis, late of Her Ma jesty's navy, now mystifying by his ventrilo quial deceptions the audiences of Marks' In ternationals, is a very versatile young man. A devotee of science, in an amateur wav, he has gone, naturally, into the qnasi-scientific. partly mystic, researches attendant upon a study of tbe but lately acknowledged mysteries or hypnotism. Lieutenant Travis' delving in the realms of what has hitherto been con sidered occultism and consequently foolish ness, has been resultfuL inasmuch as he has to a degree acquired the power of subordinating tbe wills ol others, hypnotic subjects, to his own. His experiments have excited no end of wonder and some amusement among his friends, but bis development was not sufficient to serve tne iun-maicing purposes ot the Lieu tenant So, en route from Liverpool to New York, on the Ionian Liner, City or New York, he took a confederate Into bis confidence, and after three or four hours seclusion, the duo was well prepared to astonish tho habitues of the smoking solon of Captain Watkius' floating palace. .. The confederate was Henri Cazman, Cheva lier of France, necromancer and shadowgraph ist to the Shah of Persia, also of the Interna tionals, Equipped as they were, with mutual understandings tho two dropped into the salon by different entrances, and tho wily Travis, Beating himself near some steamship acquaint ances (English, of course) proceeded tu dis course upon the recent discoveries of the French savants concerning the possibilities of the "sixth sense." The acquaintance, a stanch Briton with four clubs and tuo country houses on bis carte de visite, doubted. The lieutenant persisted. Cazman was interested in a piquet game on the other side- of the room. The nblquitously-residenced wagercr, the lieuten ant, "took him," and by mutual agreement the Chevalier Cazman was designated as the object of the experiment. Travis addressed him in a tone of command. Cazman, insulted, arose to resent, but stopped, stony, in his tracks. Travis said, in tbe same tone of command, "You are a dog over the table, quick!" And Cazman vaulted the card table at a bound. "You are dying: you are hurt; you must rail," continued Travis, in his mandatory tone. Cazman dropped stiff to tho floor. "I say, that's brutal, don't you know?" excitedly exclaimed the Englishman. "He'll hurt himseU falling that way; bring bim about, can't you?" Travis said he could, and made a few magical passes, which restored the hyp notized Cazman to bis senses. The Englishman paid for tbe small bottle and three glasses were served Instead of two as agreed. Butbe wanly avoided Travis during the rest of the trip and was beard by Cazman telling a friend, "He's a dangerous sort of chap, you know. He might as easily have made him give up his money as do that jump." The1 enlightenment came to bis bewildered mind only when Sandy Hook bad been passed and the acquaintances of a pleasant week were about to be separated. m - The Duquesne Theater Is In a fair way to completion at an early date. The building, as far as the exterior walls are concerned, is prac tically finished, but not until the roof is on can the contractor set tbe opening date with per fect certainty. But the theater ought to be open before Christmas. The theaters present a great range of at tractions this week, from Emma Abbott in opera to various kinds ot vandeville perform ances. Harris Theater presents a sterling play, "Held by the Enemy," but variety of one sort or another is in the majority. Hefbubn Johns. The'Protrrnmme. Jl Pbetaeatoet to elns abroad next year J. fi W3A (U ftiW for a European tour In grand' opera, Emma Abbott is said to have started out to to make the present tbe most notable of all American tours. The cast list, which is 16, double what it ever was before, includes: Miss Abbott, An nandale. Mirella, Micbelena, Pache, Rudolph, Du Bois, Pruette, Broderick, Karl, Heady, Borovik, Murchie, Kate Broderick, Grace Ver uod, Alice Ellerington. Herr Krause directs the new chorus and orchestra. The chorus at the beginning numbered 40, but two or three were found inefficient in all operas and were sent back to New York. The orchestra numbers SO. With such an organization, new artists, etc., Emma Abbott has evidently begun a new era of grand opera. Emma Abbott last summer expended with Mr. Worth alone 120,000 francs (S24.000) for ad ditions to ber wardrobe. Thirty or more dresses were created, ranging anywhere from 500 to $3,500 each, one costing nearly $5,000. These in addition to last season's magnificent spread. The Detroit Free Fress pronounced them "bewildenngly beautiful." The new toilets are chiefly for "Ernani," "Martha," "Annie Boleyn," "Masked Ball" (though the?e are male attire), "Ophelia" and "Trovatore," though there are new things in every opera of the repertoire. Emma Abbott will appear every evening this week at tbe Bijou and" at Saturday matinee, with the entire new company. The repertoire is: Monday, "Faust," Gounod: Tuesday, "Er nani," Verdi; Wednesdav (matinee), "Bo hemian Girl," Balfe (night), "11 Trovatore," Vertli; Thursday, "Fra Diavolo " Anber; Fri day, double bill, "Alasked Ball," Verdi, and mad scene from "Hamlet," and the orchestra will also render tbe overture to 'William Tellf' Saturday (Abbott matinee), "Martha," with Emma Aboott's "Last Rose ot of Summer;" Saturday night, by special ar rangement of Manager Gulick, "II Trovatore" will be repeated. In "Masked Ball" Emma Abbott will bear tbe part of Oscar, a page. The mad scene from "Hamlet" will be the same as snng by Miss Abbott before a Paris andience last summer, for which sbe studied under Mme. Viardot and lime, La Grange, vocally, and Sarah Bernhardt and M. Gat, of the Comedle Francalse, dramatically. The en gagement will open to-morrow night with Gounod's "Faust." Mb. T. D. Marks' Internationals a variety company of the same order as tbe Howard Athenaeum and similar organizations which have lately occupied the first-class theaters, is the attraction at the Grand Opera House this week. Mons. Leonce, of Portugal, assisted by Mile. Lollo, does a juggling act which for dex terity and finish has. it is said, never been paralleled. Leonci's apparatus is tbe finest ever manufactured, and his costumes andthose of Mademoiselle the finest ever worn by specialty artists. The Natuskies, two brothers and a pretty little sister, perform upon these queer Instruments, the xylophones. Miss Min nie Cunningham, "Our Minnie." of the Drury Lane, London, is a charmingly demure little beauty who sings some catchy ballads and dances divinely. ,Jaco and Coco, the human monkeys, are two young gym nasts from the Relcbhalle, Berlin, who, upon a number of vertical poles, representing a palm grove, imitate with surprising perfection and wonderful acrobatio skill the gambols of a pair of their Darwiniahly-attributed Simian ances tors. The brothers Borani, of Melbourne, Aus tralia, In a pantomimic sketch, entitled the "Disappearing Demons," exhibit tbe wondrous possibilities of the human frame in point of flexibility, endnrance and strength. Tbe great Cazman, u. D. D., gives a 15-mfnute entertain ment, in wnicn snauowgrapnic comeuy, zieuru mancy and mimicry combine to mystify and amuse. Lieutenant Frank Travis, Europe's premier ventriloquist, introduces numberless novelties in the management of his talking and singing figures, to which he has applied electricity with startling and amusing results. TboAvolos, of Paris, two boys 15 and 16 years of age, are said to ecllnse in their Derformance unon tho triple bars the feats oral) predecessors, regardless or age and experience. John Ransome, racon teur, dialect comedian, vocalist and dancer, is tbe American representative in this congress of talent, and Mons. Aldowa polyglot from Madrid, Spain, assisted by Mile. Tbeo, finishes tbe entertainment with an electrical, musical and protean specialty in whicb there is a bit of everything and no end ot fun. Matinees will be given on Wednesday and Saturday. Williams and Orb's Meteors, a great specialty show, which is composed of some of the brightest stars, comes to Harry Will iams' Academy this week. There will be seen the famons Irish comedians, the American Macs; Zenora and Foden, in acrobaticnovel ties; Eaye and Henry, tbe sketch artists; Law lor and Thornton, character vocalists; Miss Annie Wilmutb, a dashing songstress; Katcn awana, the Japanese wonder, assisted by his pretty wife, Oame, and others. "Heldbtthb Enemt," by William Gil lette, the first and perhaps tho best of the mod ern military plays which tbe American stage has produced, will be seen at Harris' Theater this week, with all the scenery and effects which are required to give tbe proper color to tbe production. The Dispatch is in a posi tion to know that the company is thoroughly competent and has given satisfaction in many other cities where it has played. The wonderfully realistic representation of the battle of Gettysburg at the Allegheny Cvclorama on Irwin avenue, Allegheny, ought to receive a visit from all strangers attracted here by the Exposition, Other Amusements. The World's Museum continues to make ambitious bids for popular patronage in Alle gheny and with unvarying success- The pro gramme thisweek shows many new attractions. In the Curio Hall are Natalie Dorondo's den of living alligators, crocodiles and armadillces. The young lady enters a cage of tbose poison ous reptiles and fondles them as if they were kittens; Signor Giovanni's beautifully plumaged Australian cockatoos, giving re markable exhibitions of education and train ing; tbe Murray Triplets, John, James and Joseph, age 23 years; height, 21, 20 and 28 inches, respectively; Mme. Estelle, a very handsome Circassian lady; Prof. Jules Green, in his de lightful tricks of sleight ofhand; Prof. James H. Burton's famous S10.0UO .dog circus, best trick dog3, funniest clown dogs, champion somersault dogs and the dog tbat can beat all others for blgb and long jumps; In the theater are the following: Rlcards and Fitz. gymnasts; Mons. MIrable Dectu, a deaf mute, wbo dances and keeps time to the music; Prof. Burke, producing sweet melodies from the harmonica in 15 different ways; The'Ty Bells. in their great perch balancing act; Mr. William Hollis. contortionist; Mme. Arta, wbo walks on tue celling and turns somersaults in midair. Tbe business of tbe World's Museum last week was big; each week since tbe opening has been an increase over tbe previous one. During the week of October 12 Miss Daisy Beverly will appear in the four-act drama, "Silver Bird." Miss Beverly has been playing in first-class bouses, and recently opened the Star Theater in uieveiana. Master Clarence Dale is from Texas. He is 6 years old and is a puzzle to science. Since his birth bis head has been constantly growing until now it is fully 48 Inches in cir cumference. The boy has been secured by Manager Davis and will exhibit at tbe Fifth Avenue Museum during tbe present week. A numDer of leading local physicians have ex amined tbe boy and are at loss to determine tbo cause of this curious freak or nature. The skull is healthy and hard aa other skulls are. Tbe boy is intelligent, has a most pleas ing appearance, and converses on most any subject, and is a musician of skill, playing well on a number of Instruments. As tbeskull of the ordinary adult measures about 28 inches, some idea can be obtained of tbe sizo of Master Dale's hoad. It does not discomfort him in tbo least. He is qnito pleasant In his manner, has wavy brown bair, aud, aside from his immense head, is, in features, a remarkably handsome boy. He will not be the only attraction for the week. On the Roof garden tbe Montagne family, instrumentalists and vocalists, are to appear in regular concerts. On tbe stage of the tbeatorlnm a num ber ot features and artists can be seen. Among them Quigley and Edwards, Irish com edians; tho Kickett's Society, sketch artists; Aldnch and Kinsley, character change per formers; Scbedler, the man of mystery, and Millie Olive, the handsomest lady equilibrist in the profession. Prof. Lyons will introduce his laughable Punch and Judy, and theie will be much else to amuse. The opera chairs for this houso are now in place, and It Is certainly all that it claims to be one of the handsomest family resorts in the country. Sta bo Whlaucrs. "A DARK Secret" Is still announced under the head of -'Amusements," says the Mirror. Fanny Davenport will produce "Cleopa tra," Sardou's greatest interpretation, this season. A son was born to Pauline L'AUemand on September 6 in Saxony. Pauline sang here in the Boston Ideals in 1SSS. Pauline Halt, wears a $25,000 costume in the second act of "Amorita." the front of which is studded with diamonds and other gems. Annie Boyd will replace Fay Templeton in the burlesque of "Hendrik Hudson." Franklin Fyle's play of "Overlook" will be shelved for tbe present, and given an elaborate production later In the season. Fred Leslie, Nellie Farren, Lettie Lind, and Sylvia Grey all come to this country this Beason with tnel London Gaiety Company. They open at the Broadway Theater, New York, on November 22. Catherine Coqgswell, of the Warde Bowers combination, writing of Dion Bouci cault, says: "I don't know where he is now. but wherever that may be. I am sure he is fighting for the center of the stage." Imre KmALrY's "Around the World In Eighty Days," will soon be seen at the Bijou. A large ballet is promised and a wealth of gorgeous scenery and magnificent costumes. Thn sneclalties are said to be wonderful. Imn Klralfy la personally conducting the tour JU tefg Announcements are out tor the first re ception of tbe Academy of Science and Art, to be held In tbe new home of the academy, the Thaw mansion, on Fifth street, October 17. That this reception will be a notable affair goes without saying. The academy is com posed of many of the best citizens, including a large number of professional gentlemen, and the occupancy or so desirable and charming a home as the one now, for the first time, thrown open, will be celebrated with much rejoicing and pardonable pride. It is expected that the Art Society will bo able to furnish a number of paintings to grace the occasion, although the present is an unfa vorable time to secure theae works. Some of the artists have not returned from their sketching trins, and it is early even for those who have to be prepared for a public exhibi tion of their summer work. It takes time to finish pictures, but those who can will doubt less be represented. It is also expected that tbe same society will provide music for tbe en tertainment of the guests; and other associa tions within the fold of the academy will, each in its way, contribute to the pleasure of tbe occasion. Me. a. Bryan Wall remains in the mount ains in the vicinity of Scalp Level, where he is finishing several canvases begun last month. .. Like good wine, Mr. George Hetzel loses nothing In quality and strength as the years go by. Certainly some of bis work this summer is equal to tbat of any previous season within the memory of art lovers in Pittsburg. This is saying a good deal, for it will he remembered tba,t Mr. Hetzel has the high honor of taking a medal at the Centennial exhibition in 1S76. His medal picture will be remembered as a charac teristic woodland scene which is now. It is un derstood, in the possession of tho Duquesne Club, of this city. Among the veteran's works or this summer are many clever bits from for est and stream worthy of bis brush; but two merit special mention. One of these represents a quiet pool of water in the forecrouna. surrounded by great rocks and skirted by dense foliage. There is, espe cially in the foreground of this canvas, a high degree of genuine quality and truthfulness trutbf ulness in a higher sense than that which belongs to tbe Simula painting ot rocks and water faithfully, because the impression ot tbe whole is most satisfactorily given. Tbe other is a woodland picture in which tbe treatment of tree trunks and foliage is especially merito rious. Delicately and faithfully treated are these trees, and esneciallv in tbe shadows is the feeling of atmosphere preserved with much ac curacy. One of the best portraits painted in recent years by Mr. Jasper Lawman, is that of Major Negley, now on exhibition at Gillespie's. The likeness Is a Ktriking one and must prove high ly satisfactory to the members of tbe Pitts burg Bar Association, wbo ordered the por trait. .. Beyond any doubt the most notable collec tion of paintings thus tar brought to Pittsburg is the Bleiman collection, now on exhibition at the Gillespie Gallery. Tbe very presence of so rare and valuable collection of paintings is an unmistakable compliment to Pittsburg taste and refinement. No dealer in art works, certainly no dealer acquainted with Pittsburg people, as is Mr. Bleiman, wonld venture to transport, at his own cost, so large a nnmber of paintings of great value, without having somewhere in his inner consciousness tbe feel ing that trne worth in art would be understood and aporeciated here. This Is tbe fact, alto gether aside from the business aspect of the matter, which is, and should be, highly grati fying to all Pittsburg's citizens. This city has rapidly risen to tbe high distinction of a good market for paintings and the pablio manifesta tion of taste will inevitably follow. Among tbe names represented in this col lection are at least two not heretofore seen on canvass in this city L, Alma-Tadema and Rosa Bonheur. There are two works by Rosa Bon heur. One represents a pair of oxen standing at rest: tbe other, two stags in the highlands of Scotland. The oxen are painted with great fidelity and strength, and tbe consumate knowledge of animal painting which especially characterizes tbe smaller works of this cele brated artist. Tho Alma-Tadema Is wonder fully beautiful In color, and everywhere gives evidence of tbe most profound knowledge of harmony and design. Among modern painters Alma-Tadema stands almost without arival in his chosen field of classically puro art, and he invariably couples with the most painstaking execution a degree of tone and color scheme alike charming and agreeable. If,as in"Reading Homer."in tbe Metropolitan Museum, he treats a subject iu a higher or lighter key, the treatment is faultless and well maintained throughout. And also in the "En trance to a Theater" in the Vanderbllt collec tion, the key is lower and the color richer.allke perfect harmony is maintained. You return aga'n and again to tbis small canvass with an ever recurring feeling tbat here Is pure, unaf fected art, and that tbe man who is capable of producing so exquisite a work is entitled to tne highest honor bis fellows can bestow. The Van Marckle is another canvas worthy of special mention. The treatment of cattle is masterly and direct. Unlike many paintings, this one is equally satisfactory throughout. The distant line of buildings, the sky and ground are painted with equal skill, although the care uiay not be so apparent as iu the prin cipal objects. The Gerome is a small canvas compared with others. The treatment of a lion, which lies upon tbe sandy beach in tbe foreground, is noteworthy because ot its great delicacy and truthfulness. Gerome is nothing if not perfect in the minutest detail, and finish such as tbis is always satisfactory because it is not at the expense of breadth and unity. There are characteristic pictures by Berne Bellecour aud Grollerou respectively, both im portant in subject, treatment and size. It is not possible to describe all the pictures exhib ited. The Henner is a characteristic and strong bead. The Bonguereau is pure and fresh and charming in tbe rendering of childish inno optikh and sweetness. The Schneeer Is a nota ble example of this master's wurk. There are two RIcis. the larger being one of his most important works in size and treatment. Corat, Breton. Vibcrt, Knicht, Israels all are well represented by strong and characteristic pict ures. s No Pittsburg art lover should fall to examine and enjoy the collection, because it may be many dajs before as favorable an opportunity to deliberately study these painters is pre sented.
