MAKING BETTER ROADS AT HEAD OF MINAM From La Grande Star. That the government through its foresteis I cutting a large perfect j'vsteni of roadways through the ..allowa foreu reserve; reserving .'ine camp grounds, and in other ways making the fore it. attractive and lectiring against Iire3, was the state ment of Sheriff F. P. Childers, who .eturned yesterday with a party from in extended fishing trip on the head waters of the Minam. Among the trails being cut, one goes over from Cove toward the Mi nam, making a b cutoff In the road from this valley. A second trail goes up the noith fork, and a third up the south fork of the Minam. These trails are made as wide as or dinary wagon i oids and re-ider pas sage easy in case of fires. Another wcrk of the foresters is that of camp grojnd making. For merly the rule of selfishness was su preme and the sheepman who got in first destroyed the grass and shade about the lakes and brooks at will. So campers or travelers could find no grass or places of comfort In which to stop. This Is all being changed and camping grounds being reserved and brooks and lakes protected. Cabins, too are being constructed about the lakes and along the road fo the use of the rangers. In many ways the forests are being improved so as to make It easy and pleasure able to traverse them. BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB hiiimimimimmihih7 Gotham- Both Gay and Serious. Tto Much Accredited to the Artistic Tern, perament The Successful Career of a Painter of Grizzly Bears Sum mer Season of Grand Opera. From Our New York Correspondent. HAVE come to the conclusion that the so called artistic tempera meut Is not a congenita affair, but is acquired by those who uced It as an apology fcr tbelr own weird do lugs. I kuow a Gotb.im artliit, to- dny the uicst fa uious painter of grizzly bears In the universe, who Is a case In point. Twenty years a so he was a farm er's lad on the Kansas prairie. One day when I was about to approach his father in the matter of an overdue subscription I discovered the boy stretched nt full length on the grass In the dooryard, his spare little body convulsed with ngony, bis sobs and moaus most piti ful In their intensity. "Why. Franklin," I asked him com passionately, "what has bapieiied?" "I've been wal-wal-walloped," he choked with a fresh access of grief. "Who did it, and why?" I couldn't help Inquiring. "Pop for spoiling the new horse barn," he groaned bitterly. Just then the parental cnstlgator op- ! peered, still Irate and Inclined to tc- ' gard the matter as unsettled. Ills grievance was of such magnitude that he began at once to offer me a share of it "Just come along with me and I'll show you what a good for nothing boy I've got," he proposed. We left the weeping victim to strug gle with his sorrow and indignation and proceeded to the new horse baru. a rather pretentious structure of pine siding and sawed shingles, the whole crowned by a cupola with bright green shutters. Altogether it was far more Imposing than the family residence, and Its new coating of white lead made It the most conspicuous object in the landscape. Before we reached It I discovered the cause of the erup tion. The great sliding doors were decorated across tbelr exterior surfaces with a series of bold charcoal sketches of heroic size. "Same inside and all over the box stalls," lamented tho father. In hose days I had a very good opin ion of my own artistic perception, nnd I believed that I recognized merit lu those crude ebon drawings, in which the grizzly bear was even then a protn- "you'll hav to wajt fob Toon money" inent figure. . I was at an age, too, when it Is a joy to launch an unexpect ed verbal torpedo, and I seized the op portunity. "My friend," I said, with the best Imitation of the manner of an expert I could manage, "you are making the mistake of your life. The day will ! the popular ob conie when that boy of yours will be ' tuseness la the paid more than the cost of your barn i matter of grand for a single picture. - Will it be cou- opera. It Is to be vpnlent for you this morning to square educational and your account with the Izzardvllle Ban-! uplifting, end ner of Freedom?" For a full half minute the father of my embryo genius stared nt me as If be were not quite certain of blinself. Then he replied: "You'll have to wait for your money until tbat picture is sold." The most amazing feature of this story is that my prediction has been fulfilled literally. It has come to pass more than once that a painting by that despoiler of the horse barn has been sold lor many times the cost of that structure. The story of the boy's transfor mation into one of the most suc cessful artists of Gotham runs something like this: His father could never be convinced that his son was a genius and de clined absolutely to have anything ,to do with the business. In time the boy made his way to New -York and became a pupil at the Art"E ATTRACTED TUB Students' league. Here he attract ATTENTION OF WIL LIAM it. CUA8E. ed the attention of Wllllnm SI. Chase, UA 1. 1 u nuv uou mouc um main uuu cuuiu afford to be generous. The famous portrait painter befriended the boy and made It possible for him to receive the best instruction to be had In America. When be bad prepared himself the young art student went to Paris. There bU quaint manner and marked talent secured for him admission to mitsy tad los not open to the ordinary Anier- When he returned he opened a srnaio , ai a downtown attic and beau to j combine art nnd starvation. Even In ; those early days he had committed ! himself to the grizzly and painted nothing else. I have now in my pos session one of those old time studio. I a token of the artlsfB nppreclatiou of ; my sympathy in the horse bam epl-; sode. At the time I regarded It an an Impossible affair, a grizzly perhaps cor-1 ret t anatomically, but too unpictur- j esoue for everyday use. So I con. , signed the canvas to the top shelf of j my cupboard without n thought that ; some day it might become wy most promising asset, us It has. j Before long the young man found ' friends nnd patrous. I never could understand why it wns that his skele-ton-UUe grizzlies became popular. Per haps It was for the same reason that 1 Chase's emaciated portraits of society women became the vogue. Flis bears, j however, "caught on" with n grip that has never loosened, and hf can sell ; them for more than a menagerie would ! j be willing to pay for their originals. ' I Now, right here ii n p.'ml plae for me to return ti my preliminary state-j I nient that the nrtlsth' lemiwrament j I must not be held accountable fcr ai! j ' the freak things done in lis name, j For example. It has uothlng whatever ' to do with the successful bear limner's J ; choice of a residence. Ti.i'ay nt the : ; very top notch of bis vogue he Is liv- lug. with his charming wife nnd fmir ! equally charming children, in nn old ; deserted stable near Washington ' I square. This he has transformed nt i J the expense of a few dollars Into a : I combination studio unil resilience. It : Is but a sorry shelter for one's lares IN QUEST OP TE BEAU8. and penntes. fronting on a malodorous alley, devoid of most creature com forts, cold us the barn It once was In winter and correspondingly stuffy In summer. i But it is not on account of the ar tistic temperament that my friend of the barn door decoration i.i living in rinnegun alley. The real reason is to Le found In the fact that the man who has made grizzly bears produce for him an Income sucli as few of us enjoy is also possessed of n shrewd business capacity. He knew that those who were in quest of bears would fol low him into the alley nnd that after ' awhile the portion of the general puli- . lie known as "society" would find him. j Time has proved that he was wise in his belief. Today that rinnegan alley studio Is one of the best known nnd uiort frequented "sights" of New York. It Is the fashion to b- seen there, and cards to the bear painter's teas nre be lieved to confer social distinction on those who receive them. The operatic millennium Is nigh. Mr. Oscar Ilnmmerstein is the man who has announced Its speedy coming and even set n date for Its appearance. It Is to come off In New York Aug. 1C at the Manhattan Opera House, nnd those who expect to be present would do well to prepare their white robes of the most diaphanous material, for Gotham is not in the temperate zone nt that time of the year. This announcement is the first gun lu the energetic little impresario's campaign against VST 13 A ! those who know ! Its leader h ive taken nnd note of bis method:! rro convinced that it wll". be conduct ed with skill and discretion. A three mouths' season of grand opera given Willi all the at tention to detail tbat characterizes the regular sea- son, a great variety of treatment, no special favor shown to composers of any particular country, nn opportunity for new compositions to compete for the populnr verdlct-these are some of the good things promised by Mr. Ham mersteln. It has been proved that Gotham Is not opera moribund during the heated term. More than one of the peripatetic organizations which have disputed space with dog days and the mosqui toes has made good in even- wav ex cept financially. Mr. Hamiuersteln cares little for that phase of the matter-be has said so. Nor does it dis couruge him to be told that at that time of the year no real Gotuamite will admit that he Is In town. Although he has made no public statement to that effect, Mr. Hammersteiij knows that New York is not eutirely deserted in the fen-id period, that It is a time when numerous visitors from all parti of he country have the good seur.e t make their annual nlleri ! nAtnll . .. . ..

In regard to color it says: "A floor should be the lowest or darkest tone in a room, then the walls, and the celling the HghteU or highest. Thi is the natural wr and the safe it to follow as a general rule. It give3 a feeling of firmness and solidity to the flojr, wherew, If the order is reversed, and the floor is lighter than the celling, one fee.i that the celling is coming down on one's head and that dodging Is the only way to escape a blow. The floor should support the walls la color as well as In fact, but care must be taken not to make the mistake of thinking that strength of color is obtruslvenese of color. Strength of color in the right place will make the scheme of decoration a successful and satisfying one, but obtruslvenese of color will make 1 hopeless failure of it. "The chief color of the rug should be the chief color of the walls not necessarily the same tone- but harmo nizing tones of the same shade. If the walls are a so't yellow, a rug with different ohades of brown, and to give the needed note of contrast, dull soft red and blues, would loo'i well In the room. This kind of rug would also go well with green or blue walls. The proportion of the -different colore In a rug may make or mar It for one's special uss. in choosing a rug it Is best to have a feeling of one predominant color, with the other colors adding the aa? that contrast glvei, and forming harmonious and delightful whole.
