street, south, was destroyed by Are about
two o’clock yesterday afternoon.
An alarm was turned in ns quickly as
possible after the discovery of the fire
and the southslde fire department re
sponded promptly, but they could not
save the building, the flnmcs having
gained too much headway when they got
to the place.
The fire spread to the roof of the ad
joining residence, owned and occupied
by Dr. W. W. Clapp,but was put out with
but little damage to the building.
The two residences were valued nt
$2000 each and were partially Insured.
Most of the furniture In Mr. McGovern's
house was saved.
The fire originated In the stove flue of
the McGovern house.

With the present revival of all old
fashions—In our styles of dress, furniture
and architecture—icomes another and
by far the prettiest of all revivals, that
of the miniature, or small portrait paint
ed upon Ivory. These exquisite works oh
art of the olden times are scattered over
the country In dlfferent’families, and are
treasured along with other priceless
relics of generations gone. In large cit
ies occasionally miniature exhibitions
are held and have excited an enthusi
asm among critics and lovers of the
beautiful, which Is about to result In
this form of portraiture being revived.
The expense of having fine mlnlatureB
painted will probably always prevent
them from being exceedingly popular,
no matter how much admired. At the
Atlanta exposition there are'a number
of these paintings on Ivory, the work of
the best artists of this and foreign coun
tries. In the Charleston room perhaps
is the finest collection, selected with
much care by Dr. Manigault of Charles
ton, an art critic of much reputation.
Among the miniatures sent .from South
Carolina are those of Mrs. Ralph Izard,
Mary Ann Smith, Mrs. Davis Deas, Mrs.
Henry Trescott, Miss Mary Panley and
Washington Alston. Several of this re
markable collection were painted by
Malbone and Fraser, both artists of re
markable ability and reputation In tyat
particular line of work. In the decorat
ive art department In the woman's build
ing there Is a fine collection of minia
tures, among them one of Mrs. Cleve
land, which Is said to b# an excellent,
though Idealized likeness of her. Miss
Dayton of New York has a case of min
iatures In the New York room, and the
other rooms in the woman's building
have treasures of this kind. Perhaps the
people of' the south will not have an
other such opportunity "to enjoy this rare
and beautiful form of portraiture as is
now presented at the exposition In At
lanta. In thinking of this great exposi
tion we are tempted to consider it chiefly
as a place for exhibiting the material
greatness of our country and lose sight of
its Immense and incalculable value as
an education to the masses. Not only in
art of every kind. In inventions, in the
sciences, but in the history of our na
tions it Is teaching lessons almost im
possible to learn in any other way. As
an example: A cultivated friend of mine
was standing in one of the departments
a few days ago enjoying the manifold
sights, among them a figure of a conti
nental soldier, when a by-stander asked
him: “To what nation, sir, did that man
belong?" Think of that in this day of
public schools, public libraries and the
daily newspapers! The reply of my
friend gave that ignorant questioner
more knowledge of her country’s past
than all the lessons of her youth, because
the matter was made real and present
to her limited intelligence by this expo
Kererring again to minatures, an ex
tract from an exchange giving details of
Interest concerning them will prove
pleasant and instruetlve reading:
“The revival of the mlnatnre Is some
thing for which all true lovers of high
art are grateful. This rare and delicate
line of portrlature In which the south
boasts the memory of two such supreme
and famous masters as Edward Green
Malbone and Charles Fraser, has been
during the last fifty or seventy-five years
practically a lost art In America.
“Its decadence was directly due to the
Introduction of the daguerrotype and
later to the popularity of the photograph.
During the past ten years, however,
there has been a steady revival in Eng
land, where, Indeed, ever since the death
of the immortal painter. Cowsly, the art
has never been allowed to become entire
ly extinct. The pioneer in the mlnature
revival, both In England and later in
America, Is the distinguished artist, Mr.
Gerald Sinclair Hayward, the celebrated
miniature painter of the court of St.
James. His remarkable and finished
ivories have been on exhibition at the
Avery galleries in New York from time
to time during the past several years
and have enthralled all the lovers of the
sincere, accurate and delicate in art by
whom they have been seen. Mr. Hay
ward is now living In America with his
family, and while lending his Influence to
the revival, is doing some distinguished
work. Among the best known of his
American miniatures is one of Mrs.
Cleveland, taken In 1888. which is admit
ted to be the most interesting and at
tractive likeness ever made of the presi
dent’s wife. Her soft coloring, candid
eyes and sweet mouth are all there as
well as that Indefinable spiritual some
thing which gives to every great portrait
its potent and most lasting charm.
“The finest miniatures are painted with
hard water colors on transparent ivory,
so thin that ages do not yellow it, unless
Improperly handled or unduly exposed.
The pafntB are mixed on an ivory palette
the exact thickness of the tablet, so that
the tints can be accurately tested before
placed. During the past few years min
iatures done on porcelain, with mineral
paints, have been growing in popularity.
They are much cheaper and more dur
able but far less exquisite.
“AH the great miniature painters
have done their best Ivorys from life.
They prefer to do them at the home of
the sitter, where they can study their
changing expression and poses free from
the restraint of the studio. The sittings
are usually short, which makes the work
tedious and trying, and ns a natural re
sult all the more expensive and desirable.
Since the days of Malbone, Fraser and
Inman, all of whom enjoyed national rep
utations and ranked among the great
miniaturists of their different ages.
America has permitted the advent of
photography to erush out the art of min
iature. But the revival Is upon us, head
ed by Hayward and encouraged by a
wealthy and appreciative public.”
