A rAOINQ FAD.
Rapid Uuulliio ol the Rce After the Gro
tenquo In Dvo-timtlva Art.
Within tho past few years, the rage
for tho horrible und grotesque in dec
orative art has declined. It is a fad
ing fad. a ratro that was consumed by
its own zeal. While it lasted, tho
sanctuary of home took on the attri
butes of a heathen temple and the ugli
est objects produced by pagan carvers
in wood and workers in metal were
given the most honored places. People
of tho most refined tastes did not hesi
tate to thus transform their parlors, li
brary, reception hall and dining room
into so many museums in which veri
table freaks wero the most treasured
objects The rage extended to car
vintra. furniture, etc. Griffins in costly
woods, and hideousness generally was
depicted in prominent places of tho in
tenor, until the apartments, in many
instances, were nothing less than a
The extreme ugliness of these ob
jects dominated the beauty of the ap
pointments, and tho refined taste ex
hibited in statuary, draperies of deli
cate hue and texture, paintings and
engravings wero lost sight of in the
presence of some deformity in armor,
or some Japanese warrior, life size, in
solid wood, and as homely as the late
Mr. Crowley of Central park. The
motive at tho bottom of this perverted
tosto was probably that phase of hu
man nature which makes one covet,
not his neighbor's goods, but some
thing which Tils neighbor has not, nor
is likely to have. This motive existed
tnv n otinrt time onlv. When ugli
ness was procurable oy the buyer of
average resources; when importers
and manufacturers could provide hid
eousness at reasonable figures, the
charm of ugliness was gone and tho
fancy of tho favored few took a differ
ent turn a turn in a better direction.
Thero is but a slow market for outre
objects destined for tho adornment of

Austin, April 4 The house this

tax sales under which invalid deeds

become so common with the house that
nobody ever feels that a measure is
adopted for certain until tho time for
reconsideration has passed.
