The pictures were very much admired and at the re quest of Mr. Crane, each person select ed the three which he himself consid ered best and then a vote was taken Friday afternoon to decide on the three most popular pictures. It was found that there were fifty-nine favorites, fifteen of which received more than five votes. Five of the pictures received votes as follows: The Chariot Race, 17; A Reading of Homer. 15; Dost, 13; Breaking Home Ties, 11. and Paul Re vere's Ride, 9.

The art exhibit contained a jiicture of Salnt-Gauden*' statue of Lincoln: AGUSTUS SAINT-GAUDENS. Our most not'ed American sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, was born in Dublin, Irelanldi. His parents brought him to New York when he was six months old. where, when yet in his teens was apprenticed to a cameo cut ter. Although his destiny seemed fix ed, his dreams were of much higher things. After his day's work was done he used to study 'drawing, and before he was twenty his anticipations became realized, for he adopted the career of a sculptor. He went to Europe, where, in Italy and France he received a thorough training in sculpture. He seemed born to do his work with a sense of measure and balance which he adopted while studying under Joulfroy. His work is certainly well done. His style is pur*, always going to the heart of his sub ject. His emotions and sympathies have raised his statues of public men immeasurably far above the compar itive sculpture. The statue of Lincoln in Chicago is one of his masterpieces. The work is perfect, and more than the work is the life which he seems to give to his stat ues. The Lincoln statue fills one with awe a* one looks upon it. One can al most read the nature of Lincoln by looking at it, so well has it be^n done. Two other civil war memorials are the Chaw at Boston and the Sherman in New York. The Shaw with its marching figures and) virtical lines of the muskets is grand. The floating figure above adds greatly to the relief. In the Sherman he again vhows his exactness. The task of placing a bronze figure astride of a horse is not an easy one, if they are made to seem as one. Saint-Gaudens shows his skill here, for not a flaw can be found by the most critical eye. The Adams monument in Rock Creek Cemetery at Washington is somewhat different from the rest of his prod** tions, anti by some, is considered more important than any of the others. This was his one work of pure imagination. This mysterious guardian of the Adams tomb is wonderful. It is a seated woman with her heavy robes drawn about her so as just to show- her face. Her look is one of solemn simplicity and peace. The drapery on this figure is most beautifully carved. The works of Saint Gardens are many among which are "The Farragut," the statue of General Logan and "The Bastine Lepage." Saint Gardens has a cunning way with which he secures many friends. He is not a great talker but means whatever he says. He is humorous and lends joy to all who know him. He is a hard working man and very loth to be satisfied with his own work. Oftentimes after completing a worli tears it down because it does not please him. By his endeavor to real ize perfection we find him one of thl ladders among modern sculptors. of the Crow reservation, have been no tified bv Under Sheriff Ed Martin to keep the closest watch for the two fu gleives. If they should try to leave the mountains to come out Into the open, the chances are greatly against their ultimate escape. After a daring ten days hunt for the men in the heart of the Crazies, one of the wildest and most rugged regions in the west, EM Martin returned to th* city on last Tuesday evening's train. The pluck officer saw the futility of hunting for the men any longer with out more assistance, under the existing circumstances, as it would require an army of men to put up an aidequate search in such a region. Nevertheless the officer is confident that If given time he can run the men down and land the remaining jail breakers behind the bars. The hunt for the escaped men was partly successful, In that Charles Brown, one of the trio who escaped, is again safely within the stone walls of the county jail awaiting trial, and that a pretty thorough, and close watch is being made over the other men who are cornert'd in the Crazies. Without a doubt the refugees are armed by this time. Martin and his men fully expected a battle at any time with the desperate men, in the event of the latter becoming hard pressed by the pursuers. For this the posse was pre pared. As a substantiation of the rum or that the men were armed is the fact that the robbery committed on the Shields river sheepherder's camp, all of the amunition procurable was taken. Not only was the constant danger of a battle ever present, but many other trying circumstances and difficulties beset Martin, Silverthorne and their as sistants in the hunt. Obstacles and hindrances too numerous to mention lr. a newspaper article harassed them on every hawk From the first they were met with adverse circumstances. Not only was the country so densely wooded that it would have taken an army to scout the region with any de gree of thoroughness, but being sparce ly settled, the officers could gain but lit tle information in regard to the fugi tives and the latter could travel in com parative safety and unimpeded celer ity. As soon as Martin and Silverthorne landed in the Two Dot country they found out that their efforts to effect an early capture were foiled by the fool hardy initiative of one of the sheepmen whose camp had been robbed by the trio. The officers were unwittingly and inadvertently hindered by the prtma ture chase of this gentleman, who ex pected to do it all alone. When Martin and Silverthorne were ready to burnt for the men, the fugitives had been so badly scared that they made a hasty retreat into the mountains, after hav ing intended to camp on Big Elk for a week or so, thinking themselves safe. A number of camps were robbed by the fleeing men and 1 the officers fre quently crossed the trail of the fugi tives. Only one man was seen who had had any conversation with the tail breakers. Many otlTers claimed to have seen thiem. The main trouble was that nearly everyone had seen men corre sponding to the descriptions and the of ficers could place but little reliance or. this method of securing clues. Under Sheriff Martin, although doing a little campaigning at the same time, together with Sheriff Slater, is devot ing most of his time working on the case. Relative* of the refugees are be ing located, photos are being scattered broadcast over the land, and many oth er devices are being employed to inter cept the runaways. The Crazy mountains is a former rendevous of the older Ruscoe, he hav ing camped' there a few winters ago with a pal. The officers have found out that H. A.
