Business Manager. - John S. Fitzgihhons. City Editor One of the important events of the art season in Indianapolis, is the an-! nual 'exhibition made by the News-; paper Artists' Association of that city, which is this year placed in the Claypool, and which has been one of the most successful affairs of the sort ever given in Indianapolis. The read ers of that city's papers are f ami-j liar with the cartoons of Brehm and Gruelle of "The Star," of Jack; Smith of the "Journal," of Hubbard and Bowers of the "News," of Scott and Heitmann of the "Sentinel," and of several others whose work is especially telling in this phase of art. The originals of many of these car toons are stunning such drawings naturall' losing by the necessarily rapid manner of reproduction for the daily press and a large number of sales have been made. There is a great deal of work exhibited by these artists which was not made for re production in the papers and it shows a high degree of technical skill and much charm of handling. The work of Brehm of the Star is especi ally notable, his work with that pa per since May last when he joined the Star force, attracting wide atten tion. The Sketch Club of this city had on exhibition at the Morrisson Keeves Library not long since several cartoons by Bowers and Hubbard, loaned by members of The Item etaff. Mr. Oirardin has had on exhibition in Morris's window for the past week or two one of the finest things he has yet done. In cleverness of handling, effect of luminosity, simplicity of sub ject,admirable composition, and gene ral pictoral excellence,it excels,in the opinion of many of Mr. Oirardin 's friend any canvas yet painted by him. Mr. Oirardin has made vast strides in his art within the past year or so and has in his studio many stunning pictures which should be een by the general public as those liitherto exhibited by him give but an inadequate idea of his remarkable talent. His bold, colorful transla tions of Nature are constantly ad vancing in technical quality, as well as displaying a more intimate feeling for the poetic. Mr. Oirardin is now having an exhibition in Cincinnati where he exhibits annually. He is a member of the well known Cincin nati Art Club. At a recent exhibition of jewelry at the National Arts Club, New York, the work done by Brainard B. Thresher and J. "Walter Lawrence of Dayton was much in evidence, these artists being well known in Rich mond. There was also a notable dis play of over 300 rings fro mthe col lection of Alexander W. Drake; a case of crosses, rosaries and neck laces lent by Mrs. William M. Chase; and a large number of Egyptian and 'early Greek bead necklaces f rom the collections of other well known con noisseurs. Among the latter was a necklace entirely composed of fruit and flowers. These weremade only in one place, Tel-el-Armarna, under one King, Khu-en-Aten. This neck lace is over 2.000 years old, the flow ers and fruits being of glazed pot tery and cast in molds. Mr. Royal Cortissoz, one of the best known metropolitan art critics has the fol lowing to say of this exhibition: "The new art movement in jewelry expresses itself in a desire to execute a given sentiment or color scheme without regard to the intrinsic value of the medium used. While some of the modern pieces show a lavish use of precious stones, in this antique glass jewelry it is the glass that is depended upon to produce the sought for result. In nearly every piece ex hibited of "Part nouveau" birth day rings, comhs and the like there is the same emphasis of sentiment and individuality over the commer cial value of the media employed." j -fr fobs- Ll J 21 21 aitK UNIONg)i)LABEL S!1 Mr. George Bicknell, of Sullivan, this state, has been called a sort of Hoosier AVilliarn Morris in his love for beautiful books and some of his successful attempts in bookmaking. Recently, under his supervision and instruction, the Eight Grade of the schools of that town put out a charm ing publication called "More Light," which was, aside f rom the printing, and inserted photographs, done by the pupils of that grade. This book was printed at the pi'ess of the Sul livan Democrat and is a remarkable example of typography to come from such a source. The composition, so sajs the announcement, "was done by Bill Macy." The presswork, planning, the initial poem and the two woodcuts were done by Mr. Bick nell. The pieces and the advertise ments were written by the pupils of the eight grade as stated above, the whole costing $S0 in publication. The folding hand-covering and il luminating, pasting in of pictures, and hand sewing of the books was done by the pupils, two hundred cop ies being printed and . published. With the net proceeds, .$00, they are to purchase a water color by either Mr. Bundy or Mr. Forsyth, both of these artists having sent thi'ee pic tures to select from. This is a de lightful piece of work and Mr. Bick nell is to be heartily congratulated up on the second publication of this sort he has been instrumental in having put out. - : . i V The striking covers made for "The Reader" the New York publication re cently taken over by the Bobbs-Mer-rill Company, and to be put out in the future from , Indianapolis, the covers designed by Mr. John Cecil Clay, the well known New York ar tist, have attracted great attention of late, the originals being done in chalk and having for their subjects vari ous well known celebrities Howells, Lew Wallace, Whit comb Riley, Mere dith Nicholson, etc. The original of the drawing of Mr. Nicholson is es pecially good as a piece of portrai ture, Mr. Nicholson stating that this is the "only authentic portrait" of himself, this picture being a success ful portrait because it is elusively suggestive of certain subtleties which a photograph would have obscured another argument to prove that pho tography is not and never can be art although there is such a thing, of course as artistic photography. Put a pho tograph of Mr. Nicholson alongside this portrait even in reproduction and the previous announcement is startingly verified. Mr. Nicholson's recent fame achieved as a novlist does not obscure his early laurels won as a poet of charm and an es sayist of note, his poetry possessing a certain austere efflorescence, unu sual as it is seductive. His book con cerning Indiana writers "The IIoo- EMERGENCY RATION A man has lived forty days without other food than own fat. Fat is man's emergency ra tion.

Mr. Clay made a special sojourn in Indiana and Indianapolis last spring, for the purpose of making these por traits, being the guest of the Bobbs Merrill Company at the time ' Tae Reader" with the Bobb ;-Merrill Company behind it, bids fan to be- oiTie one of the leading publications ot its sort in America.;.' It already has a wide circulation, and under the t';:;( timinating editorship of Mr. Hewitt H. Howland, one of the best known literary editors in the country, it is bound to prove additionally attractive. The annual exhibition of t!.e Amer ican Society of Miniature Painters is now on in New York, the catalogue being a most attractive one md in cluding some of the most celebrated names iu this art. William J. Baer, Mrs. Alice Ham Brewer, Miss Lydia Field Emmet, Mrs. Lucia Fairchild Fuller, Mr. Isaac A. Josephi, Mrs. Rhoda Nichols, and a number other names as well known as painters on ivory, show charming examples of their work this year, thus proving one of the most successful showings this society has yet had. The monthly exhibit of the sketch club, for February will open, if the exhibits are placed by that time, on next Monday evening in the usual place in the Morrisson-Reeves Li bra, and will consist chiefly of book plates. Some of the best known de signers and collections in the coun try are to be isplayed and while the exhibit will not be unusually large, it will be very comprehensive. The ex hibit will remain (in place for a Aveek and the public is invited to attend. Mr. Carl Bernhardt of this city has recently designed a very stun ning bookplate for a bibliophile re siding in Indianapolis, the original drawing of which will probably be displayed at the above mentioned ex hibit. Found a Cure for Indigestion. I use Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets for indigestion and find that, they suit my case better than any dyspepsia remedy I have ever tried and I have used many dif ferent remedies. I am nearly fifty one 3-ears of age and have suffered a great deal from indigestion. I can eat almost anything I want to now. Geo. W. Emory, Rock Mills, Ala. Fo sale by A. G. Luken & Co., and W. II.

"Has the limit of costuming and extravagance in evening gowns been achieved in the production of musical comedy?" That is the question which any woman of fashion would naturally ask herself after seeing the animated and gorgeous ball room scene in the last act of "The Silver Slipper." Or is it possible for the feminine habitues of the theatre to thoroughly realize that the gowns and costumes that are displayed are of the finest and most expensive fabrics, designed and created by the world's most famous modistes, as the houses of Worth, Felix and Alias are so prominently and thoroughly iden tified in the dresses exhibited in this musical play. Can any woman imag ine that in the thirty-five gowns that are shown on the f ront line in the j ball room scene which ends the per formance of "The Silver Silpner" every gown is a creation, there being no two alike, and that the individual cost of each will vary from four to eight hundred dollars. The question is: Is so much grandeur in these toilettes as shown in "The Silver Slipper" sufficiently impressive to in spire the spectator with the knowl edge that on the front line alone there is represented in silks, satins, laces and embroideries over $17,000 in dresses. But the magnificent gowns is not confined to the ball room scene by any means, for, in the double sex tette of "Come, Little Girl," there are six gowns designed and made by Mrs. Robert Osborne, of New York, which cost Mr. Fisher nearly $4,000, exclusive of the hats, and if there is a producer of musical plays today whose great hobby and fad is" mag nificent gowns, he is simpy none oth er than John C. Fisher; he being something of a designer himself, and not only a man of rare taste, but with a quick eye for blending, he can de tect more at a glance than anyone identified with his attraction, provid ed the gown does not set properly on the woman who wears it. It is said that the costumes and gowns alone in "The Silver Slipper" figure up the enormous sum of $40,000, and no so ciety leader's wardrobe could pos sibly receive more detailed attention than does that of the girls in this company from the large wardrobe staff employed by Mr. Fisher, whose ihrnk n nn rnp special duty it is to take care of same. There was lately given in New York at the Madison Square garden what was termed a "Fashion Show," with living models to set off the crea tions of London, Paris and Boston. While attending same a lady whose name is synonymous with , New York's fashionable "400" was heard to remark to her escort: "They're all very pretty, and had such an ex hibition been given before the ad vent of "The Silver Slipper," they might have made an impression." And so it is, this encomium through ly expresses in a very few words the costumes and the gowns in "The Sil ver Slipper" recently said the Bos ton Hearld. ; The Silver Slipper will be seen at the Gennett Wednesday, Feb. 3. Congratulations. Mr. John H. Cullom, Editor of the Garland, Texas, News, has written a letter of congratulations to the man ufacturers of Chamberlain's Cough Reined v as follows: "Sixteen vears ngo when our first child was a baby he was subject to croupy spells and v.-e would be very uneasy about him. We began using Charcberalin's Cough Remedy in 1S87, and finding it such a reliable remedy for colds and croup, we have never been without it in the house since that time. We have five children and have given it to all of them with good results. One good feature of this . remedy is that it is -jot disagreeable to take and our babies really like it. Another is that it is not dangerous, and there is no risk from giving an overdose. I congratulate you upon the success of your remedy." For sale by A. O. Luken &.Co., and W. H.
