Perhaps woman suffragists don't need to be cheered up a bit, but if they do they may find a note of glad ness in the fact that there la another class of persons besides themselves who have no use for a man. They are miniature painters.

"We can," said the artist, "and we do, occasionally, hut we don't want to. Men don't look well in minia tures. They are too harsh, too coarse. If a miniature is going to be a real work of art it must have for its subject something dainty, fluffy, and lacy. There is nothing very fluf fy or lacy about a man's stiff linen col lar, his unsightly lapels, his straight, short hair. In the days when men wore satin coats and powdered curls, miniature painters might have been able to work them up into a pleasing picture, but you don't meet many men nowadays who wear satin coats and powdered curls. Of course, if a man dressed in the ugly modern cos tume wishes to be painted in minia ture no artist is going to refuse the commission, but'she certainly will not approve of his taste."
