SAYS ALEXIS FOIRMER CIVIC LEAGUE NOMINATIONS Mrs. Ilamlin Will Not Seek Re-eleß tion—Mrs. Colvin or Mrs. Mc- Laren Talked of as Her Successor. "The inventor thrives in America, but 'Art—that flourishes in the atmosphere abroad," said Mr. Alexis Fournier, the painter, in an address delivered yester day afternoon before the members of the Woman Civic league and a number of outside guests. "The present age in America is an age of iron. By and by the country will reach, we hope, its brt age." "n the East," said Mr. Fournier, "there is growing up a little coterie of earnest believers in and workers for art ■whose influence is felt, but there is no art atmosphere here in the Northwest, for there are no workers." The artist ex plained that the Latin quarter in Paris was the mecca of an ambitious young artist, for the reason that he is surround ed by ambitious workers like himself, all anxious to accomplish something, all eager to succeed. Drawing and painting, the speaker pronounced purely mechani cal attainments. The success of an ar tist depended upon his ability to see and feel. Everybody in time could learn to draw and paint. Not everybody could learn how to observe. Mr. Fournier touched upon the work of the impres eionists. They sought, he said, to Keep to the prismatic colors, particularly red, yellow and blue. The artist explained something of the technique of painting, telling how atmospheric effects especial ly were attained. The characteristics of the different great modern painters were dwelt upon briefly. The artist answered •*? ■ yTtot&yg ■'■'■>?<■&£ £w£J6ife. These little pastries would be nice for A whist luncheon.

Mrs. Joseph Wheelock, in the absence of Mrs. Conde Hamlin, presided at yes terday's business meeting of the league. The nominating committee presented a .list of twenty-four names, from which number are to be selected the directors for the coming year. The directors will be voted for Friday afternoon, March 7, ■when a president will also be elected. Mrs. Hamlin, who has served two years as president of the league, announced positively before she left for the East a short time ago that she would not ac cept the office for another year. An in formal ballot was taken yesterday for president, and the three women receiving the largest number of votes will be the candidates for whom the members of the Jeague will vote at its next meeting. Mrs. A. R. Colvin, the recording secretary^ of the league, and Mrs. Archibald MacLaren have been mentioned in connection with the office. Neither was present at yes terday's meeting, so it is not known whether or not either would accept the office. Of Social interest. Ernest W. Lewis, son of Mr. and Mrs. George R.

HIGH SCHOOL THESPIANS. .Seniors Present "Good-Natored Man" in Acceptable Manner. The senior class of the Central high school presented the comedy, "The Good- Natured Man," before a large and en thusiastic audience last night in the as sembly hall of the Central high school. The cast was a competent one on the whole, and the play was well staged and correctly costumed. The comedy is full of action, so that last night when the youthful players occasionally fell short ot Mr. Goldsmith's ideas the story itself suf^iently entertained the audience. Only once^id the curtain fall when It wasn't scheduled to fall; only two or tfiree times did the youthful Thespians forget their lines; but, best of all, perhaps, there was not one attack of stage fright. Every body is familiar with the story of "The Good-Natured Man," so that it needs no retelling. Suffice to say, that last night it was told in an interesting way by an interesting company of players. Perhaps Charles Weyl and Douglas Fleming car ried off the honors of the play. Weyl played the part of Lefty, the political schemer, and he infused not a little 1 fe into the presentation. Douglas Fleming played the part of Mr. Croaker, a man of jovfoldispositioiL and the portrayal was verjTflfc-like, louis Maxlield, as the this ST. rAUJU uwms, oaxukuai, riiUKUAKr aa, xvv?.

Miss Ciara Woodward was satisfactory as the landlady, and Miss Ethel Moran and Miss Adelaide Lamphere as Miss Richard Rich- Is nd and Olivia respectively.

By Parker Quincy Adams, Copyright, 1002. With the use of the casserole more gen erally there has come in the individual casserole, a small dish just large enough to hold one order. By its use you may secure practically the same results as with the larger dish, except in the cooking of some dishes where it is tetter to blend a large quantity of different kinds of in gredients to get the proper flavor. For the preparation of many of the lighter dishes the individual casserole is much to be preferred. Let me give you an ex ample. Sweetbreads ana Mushrooms on Cas serole —Blanch thoroughly the sweet breads, and when well whitened place them in a saucepan, cover with boiling water, add one-half a teaspoonful of salt and simmer for fifteen minutes, then drain and cut each in half, using a silver knife. To prepare for six persons, have six casserales, and have ready a half cupful each of tiny diced carrots, white turnip, string beans, green peas and French beans. Divide the vegetables among the casseroles, lay in each half of a sweetbread and add fresh or four canned mushrooms cut fine. Prepare a sauce as follows: In a saucepan put two tablespoons of butter, two tablespoons of chopped carrot, the same of chopped onions and one tablespono of chopped cel ery. Cover closely and place over a moderate fire for ten minutes, shaking or stirring from time to time. Add two tablespoons of flour, stir until colored a rich brown; add of pint of good brown stock and stir until thick and smooth, then add one-half of a bay leaf, two cloves, one tablespoon of chopped ham, a sprig of parsley, a blade of mace and salt and pepper to taste. Cover closely and set back where it will just simmer for two hours; then skim and strain. Pour over the vegetables in the casseroles enough of this sauce to cover, fasten on the covers with a flour and water paste and plaoe in a moderate oven for three quarters of an hour. Frogs' Legs en Casserole —Add a little lemon juice to some boiling water, and in this scald the frogs' legs, dividing them at the joint if they are very large. For a sauce prepare a white one by stirring together two tablespoons of but ter and two tablespoons of flour; when melted and well mixed add slowly one pint of milk and stir until thick and smooth. Season this sauce with salt and paprika to taste. Peel as many small button onions as you have casseroles, and with a potato scoop turn out as many as four raw potato balls for each cas serole. Quickly brown the onions in a lit tle butter, sprinkling over them a little powdered sugar. In each put one or two frogs" legs, according to the size, one of the small onions, four potato balls and a ITALIAN QUEEN TO VISIT. US.

Chicken, small birds and other delicate dishes are also excellent cooked in the same way. TWO PRETTY SUMMER (GOWNS. I saw two pretty gowns in an uptown shop today that were beautiful enough to make one forget the chill in the street and dream of green grass and June roses. One was a linen colored batiste. The skirt was striped with hair lines of white and cut circular. An accordion plaited rufile of solid batiste was finish ed on the edge, and annexed to the skirt with a double ruching of the same. The waist matched the .ruffle in color and plait, while a little bolero, with the new sleeves—so becoming to fair, shapely arms—was of the stripe' of the skirt, and finished with a double ruche of the solid gcods. The price of this gown was $25, but it could be copied at home for much less money by having the plaiting made at some shop that makes a specialty of such ;hings. The other, while very different, was equally as attractive, and of a girl cculd have only one, I think the choice v.ould be hard to make. It was of plain white swiss, innocent of tucks or frills, yet every line was of perfect grace and beauty. The skirt was cir cular, and was divided into panels by in sets of lace of the wavy genre. The cir cular flounce was edged and joined to the skirt with the same,, while round the flounce and down each panel of the skirt ran long, graceful vines of black silk applique. The waist and sleeves were ornamented with the same design, and the effect was of a simple elegance rarely seen. Tt could be copied at home, for passementerie, in the loveliest clusters and vine patterns are to be found at the cress trimming counters, and if a light and scattered design be chosen, a girl with a true eye and willing fingers could soon make for herself a gown of equal beauty for about half the price asked foi this one: besides, she would have the satisfaction of knowing she had made a grod investment, for money spent for a good piece of black silk passementerie is almost like buying real estate, and the kind I speak of can b© detached and fashioned into many different patterns. A Royal Trousseau. In the magnificent trousseau of the Archduchess Elizabeth Marie, exhibited last month at the Hofburg to happy pos sessors of cards of admission, there were four dozens of each kind of underwear, twelve dozens of many articles of table linen and 200 tablecloths, the dish serv iettes for dessert being trimmed with real lace. The lingeri was decorated with valerciennes lace, guipure, openwork seams, Erzegebirge lace, fine embroidery of lilies, butterflies and lilies of the val ley. The nightdresses were embroidered to the waist, and had high band colars richly embroidered with "E. M." artis tically entwined in designs. The small archducal coronet was embroidered at the side. The ball linen, of the finest batiste, was trimmed with the costliest lace, and had the monograms on the front of the garments. The batiste petti ccats cleared the ground and were richly finished with flounces of Brussels and valenciennes laces. Flowers at Coronation. Not a little perturbation is being felt by the English people because of the de lay in proclaiming the coronation flower. The lily of the valley, the rose and the carnation are all vicing with each other for the honor, and adherents of the va rious ones among florists are do.\^T their best to further the interests of^ieir fa vorites. Acres of lilies of the ralley, it is said, have been planted for the pur pose, although this delicate flower has hitherto been largely imported. But for an occasion wholly English not even a foreign posey could enter the list. There is a rumor that the queen has expressed a desire to have the red rose deck every loyal subject at the coronation, and that several thousand such rose bushes have beer, planted at Windsor, in order that th« royal gardens may not fail of their supply at the time. Fruit Salad. With a very sharp knife peel nice larg^ Malaga .grapes, cut them in halves ar-1 remove the seeds. Remove ths atcn-.a from canned cherries, and if large cut the cherries in quarters. Save all lha juice. Peel bananas and scrape off tho fibers, cut lengthwise twice, then slic^ off in thin slices. Use about equal parts of grapes and cherries, and one-fourth part bananas and pecan nuts, the salud preferred. Pour over the mixture a little of the syrup from the cherries and put it in the ice cihest till very cold. Wh^n ready to serve turn it into a glass dish* surrourtded with whipped cream and sprinkle with pawdered sugar. Or it may be garnisherf with stiff lemon jelly pressed through a- rlcer around the fruit. Baked Fruit. Now that apples are scarce and high in price, you may make a few go further by combining them with some of your preserved or dried fuit. Take a small deep granite baking pan, holding about one quart or a little more. Jt-ut in a lay er of thinly sliced apples, cover with sug ar, then a layer ef preserved or canned quinces sliced fine, and so on until the pan is. nearly full.' Pour over it one-half cup of water and cove* with a plate that will fit it tightly. Put a weight on the plate and let it remain in a moderate oven •about three hours. Keep it in the dish until very cold, then turn it out care fully and it will be more or less jpllied and of a delicious flavor. Serve with cream. JUST A UITLE BIT OF BABY.

Among the duelists of our old navy was Midshipman Alexander McClung, a hot headed Kentuckian, who was compelled to resign for fighting a duel with a mess mate, Addison C. Hinton, who resigned in 1533. Rear Admiral B. F. Sands, in his volume of reminiscences, "From Reefer to Rear Admiral," tells that the duel took place under the wall of Montevideo in 1830, Hinton being wounded in the thumb of the right hand and McClung receiving a painful flesh wound in the right arm. This wound prevented McClung from fighting another duel with Midshipman J. T. -Williams, which had been arranged for. Another encounter described by Admiral Sands was that between Lieut. Joshua R. Sands, who died a rear admiral in 18S3, and Assistant Surgeon Henry Willis Bas sett, who was shot near the heart and soon expired. Sands did his best to avoid the encounter, but Bassett would have it. When Sands returned home he reported to the secretary of the navy and to Presi dent Jackson, who told him that he would not interfere between officers whose pro fession was fighting, but that he was de termined to stop dueling between officers and citizens and had dismissed three, L'euts. Hinter, Westcoat and Burns, for affairs with a, young Philadelphia doc tor. According to Admiral Sands, Stephen C. Rowan owed his elevation to the rank of vice admiral to a quarrel he had with David D. Porter when the two were lieutenants, which nearly resulted in a duel. Sands, who was a warm friend of bcth men, accepted the office of second to Porter in the hope that he might ar. range the affair, which he finally suc ceeded in doing. Porter afterward told Sands that when the president asked his opinion as to the choice between Rear Admiral John Rodgers and Rowan for vice admiral, he said: "Wher« both are equally worthy of preferment it is diffi cult to determine, but this officer " plac ing his finger on the name of Rowan, "and I, when we were young officers ha.i a mcs>t serious difficulty, and if the young officer should be selected it might be said "rk**^ -- . ' • ■■'■•:' . ■'■ - ~ . 'tff ..-: ' $«,'' $7he King sSnake of Cohurg. By CHARLES SLOAN REID. (Copyright, 1902, by Daily Story Pub. Co.) The king snake had feasted to the satisfaction of his stomach upon the, rats of Amos Elderwood's barn, and had crawled out upon the village pavement to sun himself. Village life was new to him. He realized that there was a dif ference between village pavements and the springhouse trail at Mr. Elderwood's home in the country, where he had been wont to take his morning baths of sunshine; but he did not realize the fact that he might become a terror to the villagers who chanced to pass that way, and who were unaccustomed to meeting citizens of his order. But then he had not come to town of his own free will. He was property. He belonged to Mr. Elderwood, along with the ducks, guin eas, chickens, horses, cattle and dogs, and when it was decided in the Elder wood family that it was best to take a house in the village for a few years, in order that the children might be sent to school, why the king snake was carried along. "Goin' to take the king snake, Amos?" Mrs. Elderwood had a3ked, as her hus band had brought out the reptile on the day they moved and placed him in a safe corner of the wagon. "Of course I am, Myra," was the an swer; don't you guess a village rafll ■taste as sweet to him as a country 'un?" Mr. Derapsy Duvall was walking leis urely along- a short street which inter sected the main street of Coburg, at the corner of EM^erwood's place, when a shrill scream suddenly assailed his ears from somewhere in front of him. lhe scream had issued from a woman's throat and Dempsey felt in his bones that the owner of that throat must be beautiful, else whence sc much music in a scream? He quickened his pace, hurrying around a corner at a rapid, stride. lue barometer of Duvall's bones had not deceived him. There, standing ter rorized and unable to move, within six feet of Elderwood's king snake, was a tall, young girl, so slender and so beau itful that Duvall blinked to assure him self that he had not peeped into fairy land. But .uempsey was a prarctical man, and he had at once seen the cause of the young lady's alarm. The king snaie lay still, evidently dreaming of the spring house path in the country. But, alas for his removal to the city, the days of his usefulness were at an end. Inverting the gold-headed umbrella which he carried, and without slackening his rapid pace, Duvall suddenly swung his "hastily improvised golf club througn the air and brought it around with such force as to sweep the little heap of reptil ian coils from the pavement, sending the king snake far across the street to fail a lifeless mass into the gutter. "Oh, thank you!" exclaimed the girl fervently, as a little flush suffused her cheeks and the long eyelashes drooped a little over her eyes. Dempsy lifted his hat and bowed as he made a movement to pass on. "The fates were good to sand me here at this time," he dared to say as he by those of my brother officers who are cognizant of the affair that I had used my influence in his favor from ill-feeling toward the one who is the senior and •this I would not have one think me ca pable of doing."—Chicago Daily News HEXRY VIII.'S HAT AM) AXXE BO- LEWS SHOES. _ Among the many articles of historic in rhl-,-hat V flirure in the forthcoming exhibition, of , "The Monarchs of Eng land 11 at the New Gallery, few are likely of attract more attention than the hat of .

Solution for yesterday's pU2z ie: "Hunger is the best sauce." bowed himself by, allowing the young lady to go on her way. That was a little incident which went along with Duvall, making his heart merry. But there had been a witness to the scene, only one. Amos Elderwood had been crossing the yard when his at tention was attracted by the girl's scream, and he had stopped to stare at her over the hedge which lined the pave ment. "Some fcol gal with a toad in h«r path," mentally soliloquized Elderwood, and he had about to continue his way when the rest of the scene transpired. "Well, he could play shinny, and that's a dead shcre fact," was Elderwood'3 next comment, as the pavement was once more cleared. "Wonder what it waa he hit, nohow?" Mr. Elderwood set down a pail he was carrying and made his way to the gate. A moment later he had crossed the street to the gutter on the opposite side. Then the sight of the dead king snake caused his teeth to grind to gether with a cackling sound. He gazed upon the reptile's body a mo ment, then returned across the street. Here ho stopped, and, gazing first far down to right, of him at a retreat ing girlish figure, then far up to the left of him at the athletic figure of Duvall just disappearing in the distance, con tinued to grind his teeth. Three days later Dempsey Duvall was served by an officer In due form with a legal document, setting forth that he, Dempsy Duvall, had destroyed a cer tain kinsr snake, the property of one Amos Elderwood, and that the said Amos FJlderwood had been damaged thereby in the sum of $3,650, which said sum Denmsy. Duvall was called upon to pp^', or to appear before the court and show cause why he was not liable. Duvall, smiling with amusement, ac cepted the service, and the trial was speedily called. Elderwood had in readi ness a statement showing that the king snake in question was six years of age; that his chances of life and usefulness were at least ten years; that he could destroy an average of six rats per day; that the destruction of six rats meant the saving of two bushels of corn; that two bushels of corn were worth $1; that $1 saved every- day for ten years would aggregate the sum of $3,650, the amount claimed, with costs of suit. Among the legal fraternity in the pit and the business men In the audience there was some tittering, but the faces of the jury—twelve solid citizens selected from among the tillers of the soil, all of whom knew the value of a good king snake and could appreciate Mr. Elder wood's figures—lost none of their serious ness, and at the end of the trial promptly handed in a verdict for the plaintiff. Dempsy Duvall's counsel immediately entered an appeal, and the case was transferred to the higher court. The de fendant, though he had no doubt of his ultimate success, had begun to realize that It was expensive to kill a king snake.

As Dempsy walked from the court room on the day of the trial, a boy handed him a note, the superscription of which was puzzling. The handwriting was un known to him, but he hastily opened the letter and read: "Dear Mr. Duvall-I have Just learned of the unfortunate turn a certain inci dent with which you were connected has taken for you, and I hasten to make known to you how deeply I regret that your kind assistance in removing a rep tile from my path has led you into trouble; also to express aMiope that your opponent will lose his suit.

Duvall took advantage of tse moment to take her hand in his. "If I could just go on removing such little obstacles from your' path all through your dear life," he continued, "I should count myself the happiest man alive. Now, won't you give me the right?" There was a moment during which the hand that Duvall held struggled un certainly for freedom.
