It nffords the cartoon lit opportunity to nnnually draw pic tures for the tnllor-raado Kirl asking tbo Uovll In a dress suit to stop behind her for a few ilnys but not to go too far in the back ground , and It brings positive Inspiration to tbo overworked "humorist" to take down from the shelves the musty Jolio nbout tbo man who couldn't got his umbrella tx-causo It's Lent. Without these annual visits or frlonUs wo Imvo known from childhood , /Lout would bo tlrcsomoly monotonous , but with them dropping In on ( is at the moat un expected momenta makes llfo nearly worth living during the "sackcloth and ash" period. IJut though only outwardly observed by the followers of Dame Fashion , It still has Its uses and an omlnont divines has sketched , for the bcnollt of humanity , seine of the Rood which may force Itself upon so ciety , oven against Its will , through this perfunctory pioty. If a man has boon eating heavy dinners , public or private , overweighting his body , living n way ttat Is not natural , that is not healthful , It may lie of decided benefit to stop even for forty days to glvo his body an opportunity to right it self , so that bo irmv start afresh when Easter Sunday Joins the cons past. Thou along with this over-cullng , this too high living , there comes naturally n drown- -"K of tbo higher mental manifestations , fern n man cannot reach the highest mental life when ho Is catering too lavishly to the body all the tlmo. A man works best with his body well fed , but not ever fed , so that It may bo a mental bcnclll for a person whc has not learned to llvo plainly at any other tlmo of year to train himself to do so for at least forty days in Lent. It Is n charming sight to see tbo Omaha Rirl wending her way to church , prayer-.book in hand , and clad in sackcloth ana ashes. VVhat though tba sackcloth bo of irroproach- oblo fit and in the latest mode , and the nshca these of roses , the principle Is the same , and the cost ot'lhnt sackcloth Is tanon Into con sideration only by these scolTors unil jcrrcrs who nro Irreverent enough to look behind thu scones to sco whether this suddenly acquired plotv Is for nny dcopor reason than the fol lowing of fashion's dictates. from 0 In thCi morning till the light fades of an afternoon thcro are iimnv Into resting things to bo hpon In the Aucdomy of Fine Arts , which Is presided ever by J. L.aurlo Wallace , the art director and teacher. The rooms are located In the top story ol the Williams building , a big skylight making the studio us light us day , and under this arrangement for light the artist pupils labor from early morn to dewy eve upon thi m various branches of their art work. Kasols to thu rUht , easels to the loft , in 1 stiff and unbending lines catch the eye of the visitor. Upon some are yet wet sketches ii oil and wuter colors ; on others there art drawings In black and white , copies o plaster casts , horses In repose and In action , Loads of old CJrcok gods nndgodossos , gcomo trlcal figures both plunoand spherical , giving tbo Improislon of a sculptor's inoro than : painter's htudlo and the nlaoo of uugmdlnt : for the coming nrtUls of the west. Notwithstanding thattwcnty-lH'o men nut women are at work in iholtu go control room there Is HtUo noise , tno artists in cmbr.vc content to lot their brushes speak for them Over thcro In the right hand corner , dl rectly underneath the wide skjlieht , a dozen men and women are sketching the head ani shoulders of n right proity young woman , who stands in the cantor of the circle , watch ing with considerable interest the progres' of her picture under the brush of ono ol Omaha' * best young painters. For forti minutes she has stood in the sumo attitude without so much as moving u muscle , and shi lias seen iho outlines of her fuco and snout dors grow into an almost speaking likonos : upon half a dozen canvases of us many work era In oil about her. Upon some of the otliei canvases she is represented as a most pro nounced virago , item and relentless in ex nresslon , witli a neck that would do credit ti 3ohn L.'s ' physique. But then the person : /who painted this Mcotch are but beginners C and nro not to bo Judged as thosooldor artist1 \vho httvo boon painting loryoars.

No satisfied with his suggestions , ho takes i virgin canvas and with a few bold lines lay : lu the face of the model for the benefit of tin class.

The artist's model is the subject of a gooc many fairy lulus that have not the sllghtes foundation in fact \vuon they como to bi "run to earth. " Now and then a romantli Btory Is told with the model as iho heroine which may Imvo some semblance of tiuth nt ordinarily the artist's model is a dcsorv Hig young woman who finds posingns toput able a means of livelihood as any of tin other callings open to women. And she goo : about her work in us buslncss-llku manner a n typewiitor going to her machine. She doesn't bollovo she is to have a nlc < easy tlmo , with Falurninn when she goti tlrcj , a satin covered couch to lie on wlioi shQ Is weary , and a coach and fou to drive her to her homo whoi hut' day's work Is ovor. She knows bettor Any ono who thinks it Is play to keep tin sumo posl'.lon for thirty or forty minutes o t stro'.ch , without moving a musclc.iicoil enl ; trv It on co to bo convinced that n model' : "llfo is not a happy one , " to paraphrase tb Kltno of it well known comic opera.

" Hut tbo academy does not conIIno Itself to 'omalo models , several of the best pieces turned out by the pupils being heads of men who have posed for the class.
