All sorts of horse equipments at very moder te prices -.-- The Wiggins Co. Miss Charlotte E. Mendum, for mer teacher of art in the public schools of this city and the originator and founder of the Art Association, writes charmingly in "The School Arts Book" for September of "How an Art Association was Founded." She says in part : "Here is the way it all happened. Ve were having a clas in picture study and it had been a bad half hour. Nobody seemed to care wheth er the 'Last Supper' was crumbling away to ruins in the old cathedral at Milan or not. The time wore dully on and just at the close of the period there came from an inattentive lad perhaps by way of apology for not listening this telling remark, M never saw a real oil painting any way.' A like complaint was becom ing general, when the bell rang and the class went gladly away to their other lessons. Afterwards I didn't like to think of this dread fully tiresome recitation. It gave me a queer feeling. There was no use trying to do picture study unless we had something to build on, we really owed the children a better art culture. "Our art rooms were well fitted up and quite spacious, but boasted not of a single picture. The walls were decorated after the fashion of their kind, with the excellent work of pu pils long since graduated. These groups ought to havecome down but you know how it is with drawing teachers; there is always so much to do. "In our town we had plenty of beautiful paintings by a clever artist of the place, but they were mostly in his studio. Then, too, there were many fine oil paintings, copies of fa mous Louvre pictures, hidden away in richly furnished parlors I sat thinking a long while about these pictures and it was then that I made up my mind to ask to borrow them. Wouldn't it be a good opportunity for , our well-to-do citizens to show some of that altruistic spirit that should prompt them to lend their treasures for the children's good?" Miss Mendum then goes on to relate the manner in which she went about having the first exhibition, which was an entirely loan affair, and how the Superintendent of the Schools put a new school building at their disposal for use as an art gallery. How this was such a success that the next vear she secured a number of paintings from well known artists in Boston and otherwhere and how permanent organization was per fected with Mr. Foulke acting as President, Mr. Foulke 's name giving the organization a prestige abroad which 'it would not otherwise have had. Miss Mendum makes a delight ful little article out of this and ev ery one wishing to have the real his tory of the beginning of the annual exhibitions should have a copy of this little magazine. It will be remember ed that it was through Miss Mendum "that pictures were first secured for exhibit in Richmond from well known and famous artists, these first pic tures being among the best ever shown in Richmond. The represen tative examples of the work of a number of the best known artists in this country were brought here through Miss Mendum 's influence, Childe Hassam, in instance, having sent at that time the best canvas he ever had on exhibition here. "Bene fits forgot" is the unhappy epitaph of too many an unselfish originator of i beneficent movements, and it should never be forgotten that Miss Charlotte E. Mendum was the foun der of the Richmond Art Association. i Miss Martha Boyd, who has been abroad for several months had the happy fortune of an interview with the great German artist Hoffman, whom she happened to meet in Dres den. Mr. Hoffman is a man of most delightful personality, verjT kindly and approachable. He presented Miss Boyd with a detail of his fa mous painting of "Christ in the Tem ple," giving her two signed copies of this print, one for the school, the oth er for Miss Boyd's own possession. The copy for the school will be framed and hung . in the German Building where Miss Boyd teaches. - Arboriculture for September is an entertaining number of this interest ing little magazine, which is publish ed in Connersville by John P. Brown. The following description of the illus trations in this number give an idea of the contents, Mr. Brown and " Ar boriculture, " having constituted them selves sponsors of the catalpa tree: "They show the Catalpa ex hibit of the International Society of Arbocriculture in One shows the car section, with two double seats, which has attracted so much attention. It is a magnificent work of art. The panels, inlaid with holly, and the fine veneered deck, prove the admirable character of Cat alpa for coach work. It is finished in i natural color, and shows the Catalpa to be one of our handsomest American woods. Every piece of wood in a passenger or freight car may be made of Catalpa as it combines strength toughness and extreme beauty. The office desk, used by the editor of Arboriculture' at the Fair, is also shown, and the beautiful dining ehairs in front. Upon the walls are ten large photo graphs of typical Catalpa trees as they exist in nature, each in hand some frames of the same wood. A roll of paper and another of pulp both made of Catalpa wood, are seen upon the wall. At the rear, seen through the car windows, are telegraph poles, eight inches diameter and twenty-five feet long, wich have served their purpose for thirty-two years. Also mining timbers and fence posts from the celebrated Farlington plan tation of Catalpa in Kansas. One of these, 32 inches thickness, was bro ken to test its strength. This was a most remarkable trial, for it was bent in four directions successively, under a pressure of 20,000 pounds, before breaking. The stairway and elegant house in terior shown was made by Myers Brothers, Ashland, Ohio. It is stain ed and has a dull finish much admired. The block of wood on the stairway is a section of Catalpa tree,showing twen ty annual growths and is twenty-two inches in diameter. The remainder of this section is in the Missouri section. To rear of the stairway are a dozen Catalpa cross-ties or sleepers, as they are called in Europe. These are perfect in condition as regards soundness,- notwithstanding the fact that they have withstood the hammering of innumerable trains on two of our most prominent railways, the Southern and Louisville & Nash ville, for a third of a century. "Were nothing else shown in this exhibit save these old sleepers, and the section showing tweitty years growth, the success of our exhibit would be completjXft.so many oth er articles are included, that the world is amazed at so, great1 lvalue in an American forest tree almost totally unknown." Perhaps the most attractive article especially to the collector," in the September "Craftsman," is that on the bookplates and designs of An thony H. Euwer, written by Will Lar rymore Smedley, and elaborately il lustrated. The work of Mr. Euwer is original, unique and wonderfully ef fective, his decorative sense being highly developed and his feeling for composition fastidiously correct. Mr. Euwer is not unknown to the world of literature, being the author of a vol ume of nonsense verse entitled 'Rickety Rimes and Rigmore," which has passed through several editions. Mr. Euwer has made bookplates for a number of well known people, among them Mr. John Kendrick Bangs whose plate is reprinted in this arti cle. . Other interesting articles are: "The Foreign Aspect of Mural Paint ing;" "The Spanish Missions of the South West;" "The Mission of San Francisco Xavier;" "The Architect Should be an Artist;" "A Labor Mu- as well as a remarkable artist, the two not often being found in combi nation.

The "Craftsman" sustains itself as per haps the most important art magazine published in this country as it is dis tinctively American in general tone. Mr. Charles Conner was in town last week and stated he expected to go into camp near Fountain City and stay until the "snow flies." Mr. Con ner's four pictures which have at tracted so much attention at Her man's in Indianapolis, are either sold or expecting purchasers shortly; two already having been disposed of and turned over to their present owners. Mr. Conner does little studio work, that is, doing no studio work what ever upon a picture painted in the open direct from Nature as almost all of Mr. Conner's canvases are done.
