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
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
Students' league.
Here he attract
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
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
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

campaign against

it wll". be conduct

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

Rules of Color Harmony,
Much sound advice on the birlag
of rugs la contained in an article in
the Woman's Home Companion for
September. 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.
