Two very splendidly attired ladles recently

one of our distinguished landsoaplsts, and
asked the privilege of looking at his pictures.
The artist was but too happy to comply with
their request, and placed before them a bril

visitors were lavish of those charming epithets
which ladies bestow eo liberally upon the ob
jects of their admiration. "01 isn't it
lovely I How sweet I How natural 1" 4c.
And then, aftor gating at the glowing canvass
for a few minutes in wrapt silence, the lady
who had been loudest in expressing her ad
miration, said,1 with anatWe whioh must have
penetrated to the very core of the painter's
heart, "pray, Mr. G , is it a moonlight?"
Tha artist meekly replied that it was intended
for a "sunset." "O, Indeed!" replied tbe
lady. "Pray, Mr. G , whioh do you think
the most difficult to do, piotures in oils or in

painter, "I am unable to say, for I have never

FanstFbbw on Wobab's Lovb. Rosa Bon
heur, tbe well-known artist, made this
uiomoraoio answer wnen asked why she did
not marry; "I am not fit for a wife art is my
mistress." Addina- qnicklv. for she had a wo
man's warm heart, " Let ua ohange the subjeot
it is too painful." When Rosa said the words,
'not fit for a wife," of oourse she spoke after
the manner of men; but why should not Rosa
be fit for a wife merely beoaust she is a beautiful

who are unselfish enough to rejoice that a

new lork Tribune of late date says that a firm
in Aurora, N. Y., must be the greatest pro
viders of turkey meat of any single establish
ment in this oountry. Of one now before as,
they say, "it is one of 2,000 of our turkeys,
and a pretty fair sample. We fattened the
most of them, on our own premises." We
judge the aample will weigh nearly twenty
pounds, but allow only fifteen pounds as the
average weight, and it will show that those
gentlemen have turned out of their great man
ufactory thirty thousand pounds of turkey
meat, as th orop of the present winter.

The "Chess Players," hardly more than a

sold for $4,000. The copy of (Jerome's "Duel
after the Masquerade," sold for $2,600. The
exhotbitant prices paid for these and other
little bits of canvas will, by and by, perhaps,
induce our artists to forego their ambition to
paint large pictures, and adapt their produc
tions to the demands of art-patrons.
