AT WORK ON FOURTH PICTURE Hslen Smith Astonishes OiaeipfM of Oocultlftm In Geneva American Prima Donna Tells of Miss Smith's Efforts In Art—Painting of fsrtraits Started With the Eyes. Helen Smith, the wonderful t^lrl psy chic nt Geneva, who Is astonishing even those who profesti to know the mysteries of occultifm and bewilder ing those who follow the philosophy of materialism, recently finished the fourth painting In the series of'seven which she elaims she has been Inspir ed to do, and the work Is exciting the wonder of art connoisseurs who have Been It. Miss Minnie Tracey, the prima don na, daughter of Colonel John Tracey, Journalist, who at (he time of his dentli was commissioner of charities In Washington, recently returned to Paris from Geneva, where she has marie a triumph In the operas of "Tris tan unci isode" and "Tannhauser" She Is a great friend of Helen Smith and spent much time with her wateli lng her work upon the portrait of Oagllostro, which is Miss Smith's lat est work. Speaking of her experience. Miss Tracey said: "I called upon Miss Smith quite fre qnently while in Geneva and saw the portrait of Cagllostro grow ffom Its beginning. It was simply wonderful. At first the outline appeared like the features of a young man, but as Mi? Smith worked the face grew older ainl wrinkled. The color of his dress was changed several times during the mak ing of the picture and finally remained a rich brown. "You understand that Miss Smith Is an uneducated girl, without a knowl edge of or even an acqualijtance with painting. She Is nlways In a trance while doing her work and never takes anything t.» eat or drink on the day nhe receives her 'Inspiration.' As there Is a painting of Oagllostro in the Louvre at I'arls, it Is proposed to bring the painting by Miss Smith to I'nrls to compare fe„ •*'. 1 the likeness of the subconscious work with the real por trait in the museum. "Miss Smith's work so far has con sisted of three other paintings—a 'Cm clflxion,' which possesses such strength and originality that it made tears come to my eyes when I looked upon It: 'Christ In Gethsemane' and a 'Vir (fin.' She has never been out of neva and has been a very limited read er. Yet the historic facts she states are always correct, and her knowledge of geography and of places is perfect. **M. Bad In, In whose store Helen acted as a shopgirl until her remarka ble psychic manifestations attracted the attention of the psycho-philoso phers, told me that Helen never evl denced great Intelligence, but that, ahe had a remarkable memory. Whenever she became possess»d with an inapl k ration to paint M. Iladln willingly al lowed her to go home and remain away as long as she required "Through Mrs. James Jackson's gen eroslty she was enabled to give up her position nnd stay at home to develop her powers. "The painting of a picture involves much preparation, for the 'Inspira tion,' or whatevef It may be, directs her Just how to prepare the canvas or panel on which to paint, Indicating the exact sifce, the kind of wood or can vas to be used and everything to the y minutest detail. Even after every thing has been prepared this inspira tional force often decides to change its mind and will Instruct Miss Smith to commence all over again on a new plan. "8he generally starts her portraits with the eyes. The room in which she paints is always In a dim light, nnd absolute quiet must prevail. She had her first command to paint in l'.Xi*'. but attributed It to some wild fancy and did not take it seriously, but as the inspiration recurred she followed Its instructions nnd finished her first work. 'The Crucifixion,' in 1008.** DAMAGE K-, BY KANSAS THISTLES Heavy Winds Drifted the Filmy Stuff Till Trains Were Delayed. In the heavy windstorm in which Logan county, Kan., recently suffered much loss for forty-eight hours, the greatest damage was done by the In offensive Russian thistle, more com mouly known as the tumbleweed.
