BIOGRAPHICAL STUDIES FOR GIRLS
(Copyright. 10O3. by Seymour Eaton.)

(1S22-1899.)
BT CHARLOTTE BREWSTER JORDAN.
"While Mme. Le Bran. In her S7th year,
was putting- the finishing touches to the
pictures which crowned the close of her
life, there was working around the abat
toirs of Paris a boyishly clad young wo
man, destined to rank with the first art
ists of her century.
The alert biographer, searching for some
adequate expression of the source and
method of Rosa Bonheurs art, nowhere
finds a clearer statement of It than In
that artist's own words: "I have studied
art," she writes to a friend, "since I was
10 years old. I have copied no master and
expressed to the best of my ability the
Ideas and feelings with which she has
Inspired me. Art Is an absorbent, a ty
rant. It demands heart, brain, soul. body,
the entlreness of the votary. Nothing less
will win Its highest favor. I wed art. It
Is my husband, my wond, my life dream,
the air I breathe. I know nothing else,
feel nothing else, think nothing else. My
soul finds In It the most complete satis
faction. ... I only seek to be known
by my works. If the world feel and un
derstand this I have succeeded. ... If
I had got up a convention to debate the.
question of my ability to paint the 'Horse
Fair,' for which England paid me 40,000
francs, the decision would have been
against me. I felt the power within me
to paint; I cultlated It. and have pro
duced works that have won the favorable
verdicts of great Judges. I have no pa
tience with women who ask permission to
think."
This successful thinker Inherited her ar
tistic Impulse from father and mother,
both of whom possessed just enough skill
to make a painful living through their
teaching rather than through their handi
work. When Rosalie, the oldest child, was
but 7 years old, her overworked young
mother died; then Raymond Bonheur
brought his four motherless little chil
dren to Paris, where he paid for their
schooling b' giving Instruction In draw
ing and painting. Rosalie's aversion to
school life now became as exasperating
as it was amusing. Truant trips to the
woods and fields alternated with keen
caricatures of the teachers, mounted on
the schoolroom walla with a putty made
of chewed bread. These spirited sketches
her instructors, with mingled chagrin and
enjoyment, afterward gathered Into a
scrapbook.
' Falling so signally as a student, she
was next apprenticed at a sewing school,
where her lack of achievement confessed
pronounced deficiency. She pined so for
fresh air that she finally became HI, and
in despair M. Bonheur let the unhappy
child come homo. "While the puzzled
father was trying to decide what to do
with Rosalie, she developed such an apt
ness in handling his art materials that
he was startled into a perception of her
great possibilities. He therefore took
great pains to teach her the rudiments of
drawing and correct perspective, and then
sent her to the Louvre to copy the old
masters. Here she worked with such
happy assiduity and complete oblivious
ness to aught but the work in hand that
the merit of her copies brought ready
purchasers.
At 17 she tramped the country over,
often hungry, drenched to the skin, but
buoyed up by beauty of landscape or
model, and her increasing ability worthily
to represent them. At this time she had
a preference for landscape painting, but
a successful picture of a goat led her
to make animal painting her specialty.
In her youth she also evinced a decided
tendency for expressing her artistic im
pulse In relief as well as In color; for
some time these twin glfta of sculpture
and painting struggled for the mastery,
but color-expression finally won the da.
The Bonheur lodgings in Paris were in
the sixth story of a tenement-house. Here
Auguste painted, Ieadore modeled, Rosalie
sketched and taught br little sister Juli
ette. The father, now that his children
were self-supporting, resumed hi painting
and supervised the cftorts of the Indus
trious family, happy In their congenal
work. Flowers and birds beautified the
home of these attic philosophers, and a
docile sheep served as an accommodating
model for the entire family. Occasionally
the strong Isadorc would carry their four
footed friend down the six flights to the
fields below, and after an hour's gijzir.g
would carry him up again to the roof gar
den. This little Incident but serves to
show'the happy family spirit for which
the Bonheure were always noted. It was
always a grief to Rcsalie that her broth
er Auguste, whom 6he thought unappre
ciated by the art world, should not have
received the Legion of Honor until two
years after herself.
At 19 her pictures were first exhibited.
Two years later, 1S47, the 12 canvases
which she submitted weie flanked on eitn
er elde by pictures from the brush of
Auguste Bonheur and his father the first
they had ever exhibited. Henceforth sev
eral Bonheus were represented In every
salon catalogue, their work proving tho
excellence of the early training given them
by their father.
After Rosalie received the gold medal
for her "Cantal Oxen" In ISO. her father
was made d'rector of the Government Art
School for Girls. He did not live long to
enjoy this honor, and was succeeded by
Rpea. who took her sister Juliette nsas
el;tant. The new director, quick to dl
covcr talent, praised or reproved with
equal abruptness, sent the unglfted fly
ing back to more prosaic occupations
severely discountenanced the unnecessary
wearing of masculine attire adopted by
her enthusiastic votaries, and expectea
others to work as untiringly as herself.
The necessity of frequenting the grent
slaughter-houses of Pari" In order to study
untrammeled the animals Immortalized on
her canvas led Rosa Bonheur to adopt
that boyish attire which she wore In u
modified form during the remainder of her
life. With her hair cut short and at
tired In a convenient blouse, this young
woman used to seat herself upon a load of
hay. spread out her paints and work awnv
as oblivious to the respectful admiration I
of drovjers and butchen? as In her girlhood
days she had been to the thronging tour
ists in the Louvre. The oddity of her
practical attire never brought any Indig
nity upon her. thbugh many and comical
were the predicaments into which it
brought her. All of these she took 'n
good part, putting her shoulder to the
wheel when porters, mistaking her for
one of their class, aoked her assistance,
and passing off with a Joke their slight
ing remarks about her weak muscles.
The year after Rosa Tonheur received
thegold medal her "Plowing In Nlvcr
nais" and "Haymaking In Auvergne" rmd
a furore, which reached Its climax In 1SS3,
when the artist, then In, her 31st venr.
completed the celebrated "Horse Fair."
This picture was painted on the largest
cam-as ever undertaken by any animal
pnlnter. It took IS months to paint, and
necessitated biweekly visits to" the horse
markets. A pet horse put his hoof
through the canvas, and thu delayed
for
some months the completion of the
nicture. The Engl sh love of horses
caused Englishmen to greet thte picture
with an enthusiasm whlh soon spread to
America. Mr. A. T. Stewart then bought
the "Horse Fair" of iti English purchaser,
and It now hangs In the Metropolitan Mu
seum Ja New Tork. When Landseer. who
admired the artist even more than her
cinva.s. first saw the "Horse Fair." h
m d: "It surpasses me. though It's a little
hard to be beaten by a woman." After
viewing this picture the Paris salon ex
empted thenceforth all the work of Rosa
Bonheur from examination bv the Jurv of
admission. Napoleon III shared the pop
ular enthusiasm over the "Horse F.alr."
but hesitated to violate the conventionali
ties by conferring the medal of the. Le
gion of Honor for the first time upon a
womnn. So Eugenie, cnrclcn? of imperll-
lng her popularity and determined that
honors should be bestowed where most
deserved, dro-e informally to the artist's
fine old place near Fontalnebleau. and .
1 pinned the medal upon her working blouse '
utterly unaffected by fae highest honors ,
which could be ehowered upon her, Rosa
Bonheur worked as industriously as ever
In the seclusion of her forest home. She
said that while she believed that her fath

SPOKE OF POTTERY.
Woman' Club Entertained and In

Pottery was the theme chosen yesterday
for the entertainment of the members of
the Woman's Club, at their regu ar meet

fine arts department of the club, read an
interesting paper entitled "Anticnt and
Modern Pottery." which, however, treated
of those branches of ancient DOtterv onlv
that have been studied by this department
aenng tne past season.
Two fipHfhtfiil
vocal selections from Mrs. F.etcher Linn i

instructive, and the -speaker was liberally
applauded at the close of her address,
i By special invitation, Mrs. Lynn ap
fpcared to favor the club with the musical

much that was enjoyable. But not as'
manager is she so popular as when she
entertains with her owa charming selec

inade), a bubbling, airy song of Spring, to
which the singer's winsome face added
brighter spirit, was determinedly ap
plauded until the singer responded to the
encore with "Too Toung for Love" (Toto.

STORY OF NOME DIGGINGS
HOTT GOLD WAS DISCOVEKED OX
THAT FAIt CAPE.
rty From Golofala Bay Found
Yello-rr Metal There In 1SOS
Abase of Poirer ef Attorney.
WASHINGTON. May 2L While so much
Interest is centered in the Cape Nome
sold region, it might b timely to look
back and review the history of the devel
opment of those newly iIIcovered gold
fields. Such a review was made by rep
resentatives of the Geological Survey, in
the report whl.h they submitted to Con
gress. They say:
"Up to the time of the Klondike rush
of 1S37 and 1SS3 but little attention was
paid to prospecting In Seward Peninsula,
in spite of the fact that both gold and
silver had been found in tfce Golofnln Bay
region.. According to Father F. Baroum,
for many years missionary on the Lower
1'ukon, and one of the best-Informed
men of the country.' the presence of gold
in the Nome region was reported by na
tives to Yukon prospectors some six or
eight years ago. These se&m to haVe
placed but little confidence in the report,
and did not consider it worthy of further
investigation. In the fall of lfc93 a coasid--eratiie
influx of disappointed Klondlkers
Into the Golofnln Bay district took place,
and the prospecting of Seward Peninsula
may De? saia to nave been then inaug
urated. "In July, 1S9S, a rumor Is Eald to have
reached the Swedish Mission at uolofnin
Bay that gold had been found by a rein
deer herder on the coast at Slnrock, about
M miles northwest of Cape Nome. Soon
after a party, consisting of the mission
ary. N. C. Hultberg, J. J. Brlnterson and
others, set out for Slnrock In a small
boat along the coast. Becoming storm
bound on the way, they landed near the
mouth of Snake River, at the present
site of Nome, Here they are reported'to
have prospected some, and found fine gold
on the bars In the lower reaches of the
river, which led them next day to cross
over the tundra to the now famous An
vil Creek, a tributary of the Spake. Here,
on July 26 or 27, they found some colors
of coarse gold, but the majority of the
party insisted on proceeding to Slnrock,
their original destination. At Slnrock.
however, they were not successful, and re
turned to Golofnln Bay. The colors of
coarse gold which had been found on
Anvil Creek during their storm-bound
period were not forgotten, for they were
considered a favorable prospect by Hult
berg. Accordingly, 'a small party- of
Swedes and Norwegians, consisting of Eric
O. Lindblom, John Brlnterson and Jafet
LInderberg. one of whom was
In the employ of the Government reindeer
service as herder, and another a whaler
from the bark Alaska, returned to Anvil
Creek about the mlddlo of September,
1SJS. (This creek and Its adjacent moun
tains are reported to have been named
Anvil by LInderberg from the huge ah-vil-Uke
shape of the boss or knob of rock
at the top of the mountain.) Here they
spent a couple of weeks, and on the 20th
are reported to have discovered coarse
gold of unquestionable economic value.
They made extensive locations on Anvil
Creek, and also crossed over the low di
vide and staked claims on Glacier Creek
and one of Us tributaries. Snow Gulch,
which during last season proved the rich
est gulch In the Nome region. Ground
was also located on Reck and Dry Creeks.
After collecting some samples, the party
returned to Golofnln Bay, with ground
enough staked to make all of them mil
lionaires, as the development of the prop
erty last season demonstrated.
"Upon their return to Golofnln Bay
another and larger party was soon formed
which hurried back to the Nome region,
and as the news spread, notwithstanding
the lateness of the season, a general
stampede for the new Eldorado to secure
locations set In from Golofnln Bay. the
Fish River country and St Michael. A
meeting was held on October 18, 1S9S. when
the Cape Nome mining district was or
ganized, which was to comprise an area
25 miles square, with Cape Nome at Its
southeastern corner. Dr. Klttleron Is re
ported to have been elected recorder. The
meeting also determined that -the size of
all locations should be 320 by 560 feet.
Nearly every individual located not only
for himself, but also for his many friends,
by power of attorney. These locations
comprised not only mining claims on the
different gulches, but also town lots near
the present site of Nome. The lowest
number of locations said to have been
made by any one person was four, and
the highest 30. To such an extent was
the power of attorney here abused that
more than 7O00 acres of ground were lo
cated by fewer than 40 persons, for them
selves and their friends, so that sev
eral thousand Americans who arrived
later, finding no unstaked ground any
where in the vicinity. Justly raised a some
what bitter complaint.
"At present the majority of the Noma
miners are said to be In favor of abolish
ing the right to stake ground by power of
attorney, of reducing each mining district
to five miles square, and making a reduc
tion In the size of claims, and of re
stricting ownership to one claim per indi
vidual in each district. Such a reform
would seem to be a commendable step
toward the prevention of fraud and the
practice of parasitism on the miners' vo
cation by the great number of so-called
pencil and hatchet men,' whose design
is not to mine, but merely to moke ex
tensive locations for purely speculative
purposes. Ground thus held has not only
retarded the development of many of the
mining districts of Alaska, but has been
the source of unlimited trouble in many
placer camps.
"As it was already late in the Fall of
1S9S when gold was discovered, but little
attempt could be mode at development
that season. About ?20, however, was
taken out of Anvil Creek and Snow Gulch
before the creeks bccam& tied up by frost.
Deach Gold.
"Up to the middle of the Summer of
1ES9 the attention of the prospectors was
entirely confined to the creeks and
gulches, but late in July the first dis
coveries of gold beach were reported al
most simultaneously by a soldier from
the United States Army barracks, who
Is said to have found ijold while digging
a well, and by some prospectors of Nome.
"One of the first reported to engage in
beach diggings was an old prospector from
Idaho, by the name of John Hummel, who.
It Is sold, was afflicted with Bcurvy, and
therefore could not reach the gulches.
Hummel prospected tho beach, and, find
ing that It yielded a fair return, went to
work with a rocker and took out $120)
in 20 days of work.
"As soon as the news of these rich finds
became disseminated, a perfect frenzy :or
digging in the beach siezed the people of
Nome. The Commandant of the United
States Army post enforced a regulation
that no claims could be staked within a
strip of ground running along the bea:h.
60 feet In width, measured from hlrh
tlde limit. Within this reserved ir- "all
had an equal right to dig and wash the
gravels. The good feeling and good fel
lowship which generally prevailed In hia
Isolated community Is attested by the
fact that, in spite of the crowded condi
tion of this public strip, few If any. serious
disputes occurred between the miners. This
Is rather remarkable, considering the facf
that men are often worwnr within . lew
feet of one another nn the same pay
streak. This may have been In part be
cause of the popular fallacy that the
beach furnished an inexhaustible supply
of gold, and that the deposits wore being
constantly renewed by the action of the
surf.
"During the height of tne excitement up
ward of 1000 men were at work on the
beach; by some the estimate is even p.t

as high as 2000. Every man at Nome, be
he physician or carpenter, lawyer or bar
keeper, dropped his usual vocation end
Went to work with a shovel and rosker.
Men who had been employed In ths gulches
at good wages flocked to the beach and
went to work for themselves. Tilts un
doubtedly retarded the development of the
gulch diggings very much, for it was dif
ficult to get miners, even when tha waces
went up to $11 a day. The beach pincers
proved a veritable 'poor man's preposi
tion.' No capital for development was re
quired, any one owning a shovel and a
rocker having ap equal chance with tne
rest.
"The larger part of this crowd of men
were at work near the town, but the
beach- diggings extend for 12 or 15 miles
to the west of Nome. Iq the Fall, when
this army of miners had stopped work be
cause of the frost, an almost continuous
rampart extended along the beach rear
Nome, which had been formed by the new
ly dug gravel, and gave the shore the ap
pearance of having been fortified to re
pel an Invasion.
"The output of gold from the beach can
only be roughly estimated, rOr no r-eords
were kept. It is fair to assume that the
beach miners averaced at least good
wages. Such being the cose, the product
of the beach must have been upward of
half a million dollars, and may .have been
much more. There are some Intelligent
men, who were at Nome during the ex
citement, who estlmato the beach output
of gold at from 5500,000 to $1,000,000."
NOT PROOF AGAINST STEEL
Hoiv Prisoners Escaped From the
Morrow County Lockup.
A. Andrews, Sheriff of Morrow County,
was at the Perkins yesterday on his re
turn from Salem, where he had taken a
prisoner named Cofer, to serve a term in
the penitentiary for larceny In a dwelling.
Cofer Is one of two prisoners who re
cently performed the feat of escaping from
the steel cells of the Morrow County Jail,
but he was recaptured soon afterwards.
near Milton, Umatilla County.
Tho men made a good job of breaklns

and forced a. square opening larae enouirh

Mrs. Minnie Fiedler, of ML Pleasant,
Iowa, says :
" I was afflicted for years with St,
Vitus' dance. The first symptoms of the
disease began in 1S89, when the nerves
began twitching in my left hand. I con
salted physicians of this city, bet none
of them ever did me a particle of good.
After I had suffered for two and one half
years, the disease contirraing to grow
worse, I heard of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People.
" It was in 1S91 that I was induced to
try them, and I was surprised at my
rapid improvement. I took, only two
boxes, and was entirely cured. It was
hard to realize that I, who for over two
years was scarcely able to walk, and who
often fsund it almost impossible to talk,
should be restored to perfect health and
in fell possession of all of my powers by
two bore3 of thb wonderful remedy.
" I am happy to state that my health
is still perfect and I have never had the
slightest symptoms of a return of the
disease, although it is eight yesxs since
I was cured. "
Dr. Williams' pink Pills for Pale People
contain, in a condensed forui. all the. ele
ments necessnry to give new life nnl richness
to tiie blood and restore shuttered nerves.
They are an unfailing specific for such dis
eases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis,
St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia rheu
matism, nervous headache, the after-effect of
la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale and
sallow complexions, all forms of weakness
