of the party, as an actual occurrence:
"One day," said Mr. Bogert, "Fred

Am I right ?' '
" 'Ouite correct,' replied the dealer.
'Step over here. This is better.'
"'Von see, it's this way,' continued
Kost coiilideiitiiilly: 'My wife and I are
in the city for a few days to buy some
paintings for our new house iu Indiana.
I have to get a few bundled dollars'
worth, and I reckon I had as well get
them all right here.'
"The dealer nearly dropped iu his

" 'Yes, sir,' he said briskly, 'you have

" 'No; we had one by Wiggins, but

"'No. Never expect to either. His

"'Aheiii! Have you any works of the

masters wen' an inspired few. The en
graved atrocities have vanished from the
walls, and along with thorn the truly
beautiful sHvimeiis of the art hare

except by tin connoisseur. .Steel engrav
ing has come to lie one of the lost arts.
Iu a few years all its followers will have
passed away, and the good engravings
now extant will eveu mure distinctly In
come merely Interesting subjects for the
eulbvtor rather than fur the admiration
of the many.
Steel engravers have nut yet found
their occupation guile entirely. The old
men who once engraved pictures of ambi
tiuus sine and seove now toil such of
them a are left over the details of
bank notes. It is the one living branch of
stiel engraving, one worthy enough ill its
way, for the work is beautiful, but one
which w ill never win the admiration oin'e
showered on huge copies of great pic
tures. To the general public the figure
rather than the design of n bank note is
of liniHirtaiice, and few stop to uute the
delicacy of the lines, the grace of the
MiuHsilioii, nil engraved, very likely,
nith luviug rare by some old uuiu whose
pride iu his art remains, although the
glory of It has gone forever.
This branch of engraving lias reached
a higher development in America than
anywhere else. The delicacy of the work
is sometimes extreme and gives au idea
nf the standing of the artist in the days
when his sk II was put to hi-.-her uses.
The old litcti are growing fewer every
year. For t!:e sHsial prolcssiou of bank

there will In' nu successors. The old en
gravers are the last of their ancient
guild, and with them the art of steel cu

But. narrow us is their tield, it is inter
esting tu timl that these old artists recog
nize one unot Iter's work by the minute
details of the bank note or stock certifi
cate. Much of it is done by geometric
lathe in the hands of apprentices, but the
touch of the true artist is i-m-itihle to
Ills brother, just as it is pos-sible to dc-
tis-t iu ii moment the style of a painter.
llirre is always Infinite put tins ab-uit
the idea of the world' losing anything
beautiful it once possessed. It diss not
mutter whether or not there lias c-uue
something tu take its place the sadness
is there. As a matter of fai t st. el en
graving has passi-d away Is-causc somt
thiug as satisfactory and far ehe.iiier
has Is-eii discovered. Photography in
a good enough substitute for the interior
wurk which was so familiar n (n.t.ti-r ef
a century ago. The rnge for etchi.ig
ulsu hclH-il tu overthrow steel engrav
ing fn in its Kisition of security, but the
dovwifnll was brought uliont t hictly by
the invention of photography. The plates
engraved by really gisid workers cost a
large sum of money and an amount of
time disproKiittonate even to tile hi:ll
price. Midler spent six years iu pe. fed
iug bis "Sistiue Madonna," and the pih-e
paid for it rewarded his time at a less
rate than that ef an ordinary dry goods
clerk of today.
Such works were, indeed, a lalior f
love, and to them there attached a si nti
ineiitnl interest that can never cling
nrouud the photograph which has driven
the engraving from the tield. Au ordina
ry photograph' r that is, a uuiu will) no
special artistic iuspii-atioii can produce
the beautiful work vliicli hangs in the
place of tlnise once honored i spies of
great pictures. Of course, steel engrav
ings are still bought and sold and still
hang ill the bouses of artistic pis, pie. put
those who buy ure iu the main collectors.
The general public no longer bsiks ut the
old time favorites. To take up some vd
utile of a gisid art journal of j.i years ago
aud compare it with recent issues is tu
meet u forcible reminder of the way lu
which taste has changed. A ipiarter of a
century ugu the pages of sm h vuluuies
Were tilled with steel engravings and
uothiug else, while now dashing color ef
fects, daring "studies" iu charcoal, till
puge after page.
The position in the art world of the
great engravers is ipiite Is-youd dispute.
There is no ipiestioti of whether or not
there is general interest iu their manner
The value of their engravings is fixed,
nnd their service to the world is beyond
(jnestioti. Were it not for Morgheii we
night have had no idea of the beauty of
Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper." The
true spirit of nrt has been nolily preserv
ed by such engravers and their followers,
nnd there is about their work a charm
which fashion cannot affect.
But these works lire too high priced for
the public tu know much of them, and ev
ery year will increase their valm. For
an engraving, if it is tu Is? perfect. nmt
be printed nt the time the plate is made.
Copies made after many years are, from
the point of view of the connoisseur,
worthless. Again, many plates have Is-en
retouched by some clumsy hand and thus
ruined, or worse than ruined, since they
still exist to give u false impression of
the work of u true artist. The engrav
ings for which art lovers seek must lie
those made at the time of the making of
Hie plate. Since there are no t e en-
Irurers and the work of the muster is

A Great Discovery.
Not Made by Accident
Great discoveries are not always tnadt
by accident but often by perseverance,
constant study and experience. Such wa
the case that resulted in the discovery ol
Thompson's Itarosiua which is remarkable
for its cures iu Kidney, L-Wer and hladdei
troubles, also Sciatic Rheumatism.
ILirosuu is remarkable also in the fact
that the cures it make are Permanent.
A Serious Case Easily Cured.
The third dose of Thompsons' Harosma
niade me feel like a new man. I suffered
ahoutavrar with pain iu the back, side
and eroiu. My hands, anus, and side ol
fare became numb ; would wake up numb
all over ; had to get out of bed and go
through gymnastic exercises to get asleep.
I made up my mind to sell out the
jewelry business, as I lost thirty pounds
of llesh in oue year. I am very thanklul
I took Thompson's Harosma and shall
remain in Tilusville. Any person tlltcted
as I was can call on J. J. Hume, jeweler,
Jv) West Spring street, and learn what
Ilarostna, Backache, Liver, Kidney and
I.umbngoCure did for me. It is a valu
able remedy. The alnive cure was effect
ed five vears ago anil I have been well
ever since. J. . tiORNK.
Cured in Four Days.
AWit twenty years ago I contracted a
sprain and luiuli.igo, causing numbness
in back and hips, which routined mo to
my bed. Cnpt. S. R. Smith railed on me
aud said : "Get a bottle of Thompson's
Harosma," which I did taking large dotes
and to my surprise in ntiout four days I
rolled out of bed a well man. Although
this was twenty years ago, I have had
no return of the svmptouis since.
