Another branch of the great Reform (Administration of Mayor Low gets a black eye now. The much be-boasted Department of Charities turns up a scan dal which takes the polish off anything that developed under the Van Wyck ad ministration. The reform employes of Bellevue Hospital appear to have coolly murdered and robbed a patient in the psychopathic department, expecting to “get away with it” without any trouble. (Unfortunately for them, the man was a man of important and another patient watched the process of doing him to death. ^ The interesting question which the Ducker incident brings up is: How many | . ether unfortunates have been robbed and ' If taurdered in the city institutions by the ■if pV ipeelers of the Fusion faction? | It gives one a shiver to think of it.

S » Stricken With Heart Disease Pick up almost any newspaper and you will find an account of some person being stricken with heart disease. Heart trouble, at least among the Americans, is on the increase. No doubt this is due in part to the worry, excitement and strenu osity of modern American business life, and yet how many, many times it is the result of weak stomachs, of poor digestion. While real organic heart trouble is Incurable, it is comforting to know that not more than one case in every hundred is organic. The re mainder are functional, being due to a sympa thetic disturbance, produced through the nervous system, caused by great muscular prostration, improper nutrition, in short, dyspepsia. ThiB functional disturbance of the heart's action is manifested by palpitation, irregularity of beats, intermission, rolling or tumbling move ment and a feeling as if the heart were in the throat. These symptoms often give rise to great apprehension, anxiety, fear and depression of mind. Bat since the cause of the trouble is indigestion, it readily yields to Stuart’s Dys pepsia Tablets, the great panacea for all stomach disorders and sympathetic ailments. The close relation between heart trouble and poor diges tion is due to the fact that the heart, the great * force pump of the system, to which all of the veins and arteries of the body may be directly or indirectly traced, and the stomach are controlled by the same great nerves, the Sympathetic and Pneumogastric In another way, also, the heart is affected by the form of poor digestion, which causes gas and fermentation from half digested food. There is a feeling of oppression and heaviness in the chest caused by pressure of the distended stomach on the heart and lungs, interfering with i their action; hence arises palpitation and short breath. Poor digestion also poisons the. blood, making it thin and watery, which irritates and weakens the heart. The most sensible treatment for heart trouble is to improve the digestion and to insure the prompt assimilation of food. The slightest derangement of the stomach impairs digestion and nutrition. Some of the symptoms of indigestion are fullness in the region of the stomach, sourness, emission of gases, oolio, loss of energy, drowsiness, harrowing dreams, bitter taste in the mouth, offensive breath, sick headache, giddiness, disturbed sleep, sallow countenance, heartburn, irregularity of appetite, etc. Many suffering from dyspepsia make the grave mistake of assuming that they need cathar tics to force the liver to throw off the load, and thereby frequently cause the graver evil of a dis ordered liver, while in reality they require some effective digestive preparation like Stuart’s Dys pepsia Tablets, obtainable of all druggists, which are pleasant and perfectly safe, to supply the lacking fluids that cause digestion and proper nutrition, thus strengthening the entire system and insuring a strong, vigorous, healthy body. It is safe to say that the regular, persistent use of Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets at mealtime will cure any form of stomach trouble except cancer of the stomach. Mrs. Lydia Bartram of Assyria, Mich., writes: “I have suffered from stomach trouble for 10 years and five different doctors gave me only temporary relief. A Mr. E. R. Page advised me to try Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets and four boxes did me more permanent benefit than all the doc tors’ medicines that I have ever taken.” Mrs. G. 0. Crotsley, 538 Washington St., Hoboken, JST. J., writes: “Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets just fill the bill for children as well as for older folks. I’ve had the best of luck with them. My three-vear-old girl takes them as readily as candy. 1 have only to say ‘Tablets’ andshedrops everything else and runs for them.” Pull size package of these tablets sold by druggists at 50 cents.

The utilizing of the falls as a scenic accessory to a play has never been considered any more practi cal than making the descent of them, al though painted reproductions have been attempted. Messrs. Rowland and Clif ford, ^after much patient experimenting, have finally perfected a scene that is really marvelous, actually showing the Falls, with its mighty rush and roar of water in full motion. Around this scene is written a' highly dramatic and sensa tional story. The terrifying experiences of Mile’ Madeline going over the Falls in a barrel and her subsequent rescue in the rs^ids is one of the sensational features of the play. __ NEW PUBLICATIONS. The History of Washington, D. C. The Washington “Post” has just pub lished a neatly bound gnd interesting volume on “The History of Washington, D, C.” The work was compiled by Mr. Charles W. Irving, who has written his tories of many of the leading cities throughout the United States, including Cleveland, St. Louis, Chicago, Cincinnati, Baltimore, St. Paul and Louisville. The history of the National Capitol is elaborately illustrated. It has received general commendation from many prom inent residents of the city, and would make a handsome addition to any library. _ “Life's” Christines Number. A delightfully unique painting by C. Allan Gilbert, -reproduced in five colors, gives the cover of “Life’s” Christinas number an artistic distinction Which en titles it to defy comparison with the best of the French and English Christmas numbers. The number itself is the larg est ever issued by “Life,” consisting of sixty pages executed in the best manner of the printer’s art. It is replete with good things, both is pictures and text On its honor list of artists are Charles Dana Gibson, John Cecil Clay, A. D. Blashfield, Dan Beard and C. J. Budd. The text, hoth prose and verse, is redol ent of Christmas, looked at from the usual “Life” viewpoint of humor and : sentiment. “Life’s” is easily the most artiatic of the Christmas numbers. “Tbe Villa Claudia ” Considerable interest centers in John A. Mitchell’s next .book which is an nounced for publieatidn in the early spring by “Life” Publishing Company. His “Amos Judd” and “Pines of Lory” were Bueh delightful, refreshing and un usual stories that they hold a place pecu liarly their own in American, literature. Tho title of the new story is “The Villa Claudia” and the scene is laid in Tivoli, Home’s beautiful and famous suburb, j The plot is a mingling of the antique and modern with an ..element of mystery which is bound to hold the reader’s at- ! tentioa fixed. JERSEY PORTRAIT PAINTER. Forrest Halsey of Newark Has Won Fame by His Theatrical Pic tures. TAKES SOCIETY WOMEN TOO _ ? His Rapidly Increasing Gal lery Contains Many Cele brites. When Adelina Patti arrived in this country recently, to sing in the concerts now being given in various cities, her at i tentioU was at once attracted to the sketch of Jacques Thibaud, the celebrat ed French violinist, which was made two mouths ago by Forrest Halsey, of New ark, and one of her first acts was to send for Mr. Halsey, and ha^ him draw a picture of herself, says the Newark “Sun day News.” This drawing, together with the sketch of M. Thibaud, and other examples of Mr. Halsey’s work, was made by Mr. Halsey in Patti's 1 private car, Craig y Nos, in Jersey City. ! Like nil Mr. Halsey’s portrait work, the execution was very rapid, such detail as seemed advisable being filled in by the artist at his studio in the Cooper build ing, 107 East Twenty-seventh street, New York City. Ikr. Halsey’s receiving this important commission is an event of decided interest to his Newark friends, who hare followed with pleasure an un usually successful »career which gives promise of brilliant achievement. Mr. Halsey’s present position in the art j world, won after a few years of work, is j individual. His talent has been recog nized quickly, and appreciation of it has Increased with each new manifestation of his skill in portraiture. Mr. Halsey comes of a family which | has been prominent in New Jersey for j over two centuries. His earliest pater nal ancestor in this country was among the first settlers of Elizabethtown, and it ; | is of interest to recall, in connection with his art work, that his great uncle, Field ing Lucas, was the patron of Rembrandt Peel, the painter who made the last and one of the best portraits Qf George Wash ington. His great-grandfather, £olonel Luther Halsey, an aide-de-camp on the staff of Marquis de Lafayette and a per sonal friend of the French soldier, was one Of the founders of the Society of the - Cincinnati. The artist’s father, the late Augustus O. Halsey, was a man .of lit erary and artistic tastes, and had no lit tle ability as a maker of sketches. His mother, Mrs. Halsay, of Newark, is a Virginian, a descendant of a family long identified with the old Dominion. A native of ibis city, Mr. Halsey at tended the Newark Academy, being a member of the class of ’96 in that institu tion., He has drawn from his boyhood, and it was a sketch made eight years ago, sent to “Life” and accepted by that periodical, that suggested to him the pos sibility of turning a Natural aptitude tp account. He attended the Artist Artis ans’ Institute in New York, and later pursued his studies with Howard Chand ler Christy, Walter Shiriaw and George Wharton Edwards, sketching along orig inal lines all this time and finiding a ready market for his productions. He has had a studio in New York for two years. Much of his earlier work was done in Newark, in a workshop fitted up over the stables adjoining the family resi dence, at 466 Summer avenue. He has found it advisable, however, to make his i headquarters in New York for conven- j ience in appointments and association | with brother artists. “It was three years ago,” said Mr. Hal sey, when talking one day last week with a Sunday “New-s” representative, in the ! artist’s New York studio, “that the idea came to me of making a portrait of Mrs. Langtry. I had seen he# act, and wished to find out what f could do in the way of portraying her. I called, and hade my j request. Naturally she did not suppose ! that the sketch would amount to any thing, but she laughed and said:—‘I’ll give yotf two minutes.’ “I didn’t lose much time, you may be sure. At the expiration of the time limit I spoke:— > / , “ ‘Mrs. Langtry, the two minutes are up.’ “She came over, looked at the lines I had drawn, and told me to keep on. This | Sketch was the beginning of my theatri- : cal work.” The “theatrical work,” to which Mr. ! Halsey referred briefly, has constituted a very important and markedly successful part of his activities since that first drawing. Many well-^nown actors and actresses have posed for him, either in the theatre or in his studio, the pictures being used largely for posters as well as for illustrations in books and magazines, while the originals are prized in eollec i tions of portraits of celebrities. R. H. Russell's publication, “The American Stage,” contains mueh of Mr. Halsey’s work. Among the persons of whom he has made drawings in crayon or pastel are Mrs. Leslie Carter in many rol.es; Henry Miller in "The Only Way,” Vin cent Serrano in “Arizona,” Ellen Terry, Henrietta Crosman, Olga Nethersoie and Fay Templeton. He has become inter ested, recently, in portraying musical folk, and is- soon to be given a sitting by Josef Hofm nn, the famous pianist. -;; ■ -isSsist ■ ■ Hi ■ ’Cfii&efc The actual time consumed in making sketches of stage people is, Mr. Halsey says, comparatively short. It is neces sary, however, that much be done in the tvtay of preparation, which meank study of the artist in playing the part. Be fore making one sketch Mr. Halsey went to the theatre twenty-four times, coming to know the piece almost by heart. This was an exceptional instance, but it goes .to show the thorough training that is es sential. Many of the sketches have been made in the rough in dressing-rooms between acts, on evenings when the stars are convinced that they are looking their ; best. Mr. Halsey considers it is very [ necessary for the subject to be just in ! the right mood—the mood in which the | assumed character1 is most completely taken. / The artist is especially happy in his de lineation of what are known ns society types, and his ability in this direction has led to his being commissioned to make portraits of a number of well-known so ciety women. On this pftge are shown representations, of Mr. Halsey’s capital studies of the Southern girl and the maid en from the Par West. This series also includes the New York girl and the Bos ton girl. These taking sketches appeared originally in a calendar issued by The Judge Company. Mr. Halsey is now en gaged in making pictures of a dozen young women typical of as many outdoor sports followed in the United States, the illustrations to be used in a 1005 calendar. Another of the artist's present, undertak ings, which shows his versataHty, is a se ries of drawings in color for a new mag azine soon, to be issued. The sketches will show gambling scenes among the lower classes. Just now he is working on a picture of a bueketshop, and says he got all the material he needed during the recent slump ia steel. Mr. Halsey is writ ing short descriptive articles to accom pany the studies. In literature, Mr. Halsey's tastes run to French history, and bis interest in the subject has prompted him to make many drawings. In 1900 “jCavalier, the Camis sard,” a etory of Rdventure, the scene of ■which is laid in France at the time of Louis XIV, was written and illustrated by Mr. Halsey and published in Every body’s Magazine. Mr. Halsey has done a great deal in the way of lithographic work within the past year of so, and turns with characteristic enthusiasm to each new branch of art that he takes up. He numbers among bis friends many well-known people in artistic, literary and theatrical circles, and his studio is a meeting place for members of the frat ernities with which he is associated. In speaking of those who have won fame by their, drawing, Mr. Halsey pays special tribute to Arthur Keller, Who he consid ers has no superior in this country. He is appreciative also of the work of C. t>. Gibson. “Mr. Gibson,”. Mr. Halsey re marked, “lias a ptaco among American aitists due to Something- much more' iur ■ i ■■ ■.■•;.: portant than his technical ability, great as that is. He was the first.to evolve the society type—that is, he was the first to look below the surface and to bring out character in his depiction of society figures. They are pretty good judges of that sort of thing in Paris, and there Gibson’s drawings are held in high esti mation. There is scarcely less praise for them in England.” ( Mr. Halsey's own work is marked by I freedom of technique. His handling of : subjects is invariably clever, and shows ! much power of characterization. His |§olors aro used for broad effects, and the same general idea animates his sketches in black and white. The fewest possible lines are employed to tell the story, for the artist has an abhorrence of unneces sary detail. As a result, his portraits, real and ideal, have a quality as striking » ' as it is distinctive. i 1 THREE DAYS’ PEDESTRIAN RACE Exactly half a hundred 'pedestrians will take part in the three days’ fasting go as-you-please race, which is to be held in ! Madison Square Garden, during the week 1 of December 28th, under the auspices of the Physical Culture Exhibition Co. -Included iu this number are many athletes well known for long distance running prowess throughout the United States, and others, who, while students of physical culture, hope to make their marks against the champions they will me£t.
