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
"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.
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
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

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

a profound study and experiment and
can talk entertainingly and at length
on this subject.

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.
Mr. Conner is a discriminating critic

The readers of this paper will be
leased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure now known
to the medical fraternity. Catarrh be
ing a constitutional disease, requires
a constitutional treatment. Hall's
'atarrh Cure is taken internally, act
ing directly on the blood and mucous
surfaces of the system, thereby des
troying the foundation of the disease,
and giving the patient strength by
building up the constitution and as-
isting nature in doing its work. The

curative powers that they offer one
