eeveral of tho larger bakeries became
effective as far as tho patrons or
those establishments are concerned, at
7 o'clock this morning.
How lonit tljo now prices for bread
and rolls are to prevail will depend
largely. It Is stated, on the prrccs for
Thore Is little prospect at present
that tho raw materials will become
cheaper. Local bakeries aro Inclined to
believe that they will become costlier,

announced their Intention of establish

lard, sugar, paper bugs, horsusltoes,

of tho bakery. The 1-cent Increase In
tho price of bread merely removes the
loss and allows of no profit.
"Tho statement that the bakers aro
not affected by tho Increase In tho
cost of flour by reason of having n
1-irg.e amount In stock bought before
the high prices prevailed Is untrue,
for prices liavo been so high for the
last three or four months that the
bakers have only bought what they
absolutely had to, hoping nil tho time
that something yllke normal prices
would be restorcu.
"Tho prevailing high prices are ac
counted for by tho shortage or tho

NEW YORK. Oct. M.-WIIUamSlcrrltt
Chase, foremost among American art
ists In this country today and ono of
tho handful of men who brought about
the development of American art to Its
present Important position throughout
the world, died yesterday afternoon at
Ids homo, 231 Kant Fifteenth street.
He had been III for months, most of
tho time confined to his bed, and al
though his family kept the seriousness
of his condition as sccrot ns they could,
it wns understood for some time among
Ids friends that tho aged painter could
not live long,
Sir. Chase would have celebrated Ills
sixty-seventh birthday next Wednesday
had ho lived. He passed through a time
whon Americans were looked upon sole
ly ns people who bought works of art,
but could not crento them to the time
when American canvases held their
own In the galleries and salons abroad.
And It wns largely through his own
woik, both as painter and tencher, that
this change was brought about.
I'crhnps a majority of the American
artists wnnsn work is rnnKca mgn today
passed under his tutelage.

by the public, when prominent "e-i
begged him to go abroad and do wis
painting there, offering to pay him
twlo tho money they wero willing to
girt for his canvases turned out from
lila studio on Fifth avenue.
Mr. 'Chasd's career Is typical of tho
one that I expected to be told of great
artists. Ho started llfo poor tho son
of a retail merchant In Kranklln, Ind
who had little sympathy for his ambi
tion and wanted to put him into busi
ness. Hut ho used the wrapping paper
of his father's store for his sketches un
til ho was ablo to get instruction from
II. F. Ilaynes, an Jndlnnapolls artist.
The latter soon told Chnso's fnlhcr that
he had taught the boy all he could learn
In that city, and urged him to send
young Chase to New York.
This wns done In 18C3 und for two
years Chase studied under J. O. Katun
and In the Natlonnl Acadomy of Design.
When his fathlr failed In business the
boy went to St. l,ouls nnd opened a
studio, where he eked out tho family ex
penses witn still life pictures, ii socmen
ns though his career wns at a stand
still, but a group of wealthy men took
notice or him, mado up a purse and sent
htm to the Itayal Academy In Munich.
In his eight years at that school Chase
won first medals In nil six or the de
partments. Ills money ran out and he
scraped along by pot work. Ho went
hungry often, nnd he wore out the soles
or his shoes toting his ennvasos from
ono denier to another, only to have them
Tho tide or his fortune set In, however,
when Carl von 1'lloty, director of the
Hoynl Academy, commissioned him to
paint portrnlts of the directory five
(hildren. Immediately the dealers .login
clamoring for his work
When he teluincd to the I'nltcd States
In 1878 he had earned n reputation
abroad that he soon Incrensed In his ni
live country. From that time on. 1-
though he was an Inveterate traveler.
