THtOREGONfAN'S HOME STUDY CIRCLE: DIRECTED B PROF. SEYMOUR EATON
FAMOUS ART GAL
LERIES OF THE WORLD
Off an earlier date is the famed "Howe
Fair," hi' Rosa Bonbeur; familiar through
engravings and prints from one end of
the country to the other, and It is a -work
that -will never srow stale, for it has bis
qualities, both in paintingr and drawing,
as "well as In conception. Here, too, are
all of the Barbteon school of painters, i
with many examples of each, and the
popular men, .such as Bouguereau, Caba
nel, Serome, Corot, Henner, Ihermltte,
J Febvre, Lerolle and Vlbert, to name
only a few. Munkacsy, Muller, Knaus,
Sans Mokart and others Germans, Aus
trians and Italians may also be studied
through a Jons and comprehensive list.
Earlier back, we bave the great Con
stable, who may be said to be the father
or the French school of the "men of
JS30," as they are called, who were so at
tracted by the -work of this distinguished
English painter and the remarkable color
1st Turner, beloved of Ruskiri, wh03e
writings helped to draw attention to the j
man. By him there are two important
examples, and then we go further back
to the distinguished group of Georgian
painters, often referred to as the "Early
Englishmen,' sturdy portraitists and
painters of our ancestry across the sea.
Virile old Sir Joshua Reynolds, sturdy
Raeburn, brilliant "Gainsborough and
suave Lawrence, Soppner, Romney and
s.11 the-rest of them may be seen and
"Mr, Idarquand has given a whole room
ful of old masters. Including a sumptuous
Hembrandt, the "Portrait of a Man,"
and other work; the remarkable full
length by Van Dyke of James Stuart,
Duke of Richmond; a Velasquez, a Ru
bens, Holbein, Leonardo da Vlncl and
many more, making a really , wonderful
collection. Then there are the lesser
Dutchmen, other Flemish, Italian and
English, painters, many of them of the
best. The American painters, both of the
earlier set and the more modern men, are
moderately well represented, though other
galleries contain more oomplete collec
tions. Still there is a good showing, par
ticularly of the men "who flourished from
the early '80s to the late 60s. A fine por
trait of Mr. Marquand by John S. Sar
gent must be noted, and there are two
jsnasterpieces by the late George "Innes.
The sculpture Is of a historical interest,
rather than artistic, although there are
not wanting many good pieces. Among
the donors has been the late Miss Cath
rine "Wolfe, who bequeathed to the mu
seum all the pictures in her galleries,
together with the sum of $200,000 with
which to maintain and Increase the col
lection. The museum Js accessible to
'the public, and there are no restrictions
whatever, while every facility is- offered
'to the .student to familiarize himself -with
The year 1S70 seems to have been a
propitious time for the founding of mu
seums or their enlargement. The Met
ropolitan and the Boston Museums -were
organised In that year, and Congress
during the same year chartered the Cor
coran Gallery of" Art, -which was made
possible through, the liberality of the
great philanthropist, William W. Cor
coran. In this year the Pennsylvania
Academy of Fine Arts, finding it had out
grown the proportions of its old build
ing, arranged, for a new site. This insti
tution had its first building in Chestnut
street, Philadelphia, destroyed by Are in
3841. Its present abode In Broad street
dates from the centennial year. A large
proportion of the $500,000 -which it cost
was subscribed by about 150 business
houses and private citizens in sums rang
ing from $1006 o 110,000, mainly through
the untiring exertions of James L. Clag
horn. then president of the institution.
In'lSSp a 5100.000 endowment fund was
subscribed, and this has since been ln-

-creased by $95000, of which $71,000 was
.left by George S. Pepper, ninth president
-of the academy. Edward L. Cary, fourth
president; Henry C Gibson, a vice-president,
and Joseph E. Temple, a director
Sof the academy, have left collections and
.'funds, while the Field collection, from a
'daughter of Richard Peters, Jr., one of
the "founders of the academy, has also
'2eea added. The lata John S. Phillips
bequeathed, some 40,000 engravings and
etchings together -with an endowment
of $12,000 for the care and the Increase of
the collection. The academy has a very
comprehensive collection of American
"Work, beginning with that of Benlamln
West, whose "Death on a Pale Horse"
tis here: continuing with Gilbert Stuart,
who is represented with mors than 20
.portraits, including what is claimed to be
the- -original of the famous Lansdowne
ortrait of Washington. Among tho
jnodem( Americans there are excellent
examples by William M. Hunt, John S.
Sargent, Alexander Harrison, Thomas
Eakins, Wlnslow Homer. John W. Alex
ander, William M. Chase, Thomas
Shields Clarke, George de Forrest Brush
and Cecilia Beaux. A large exhibition
of current work is held annually in the
galleries, and its collections and schools
are among the most important in the
It was not until 1879 that the Boston
Museum of Fine Arts came to occupy its
present quarters in Copley Square, and
In the 21 years that have elapsed since
then its collections have so rapidly In
creased that the land has been acquired
In Huntington avenue, near the Fens,
where it is proposed to erect a largo
and imposing structure. Among Its other
funds is the sum of $750,000 left by Henry
L. Pierce, which is quite unrestricted. In
deed, most good Bostonians who die in
possession of wealth, if they do not pro
vide bequests for Harvard College, leave
'something, as a rule, to the Museum of
It -was eminently fitting that so -thoroughly
American a city as Boston should
have in its museum a fine collection of
native work, and special attention has
been given to tho eary painters, the col
lection being particularly rich in exam
ples by Gilbert Stuart, Washington All
Eton, and, of course, the sturdy Ameri
can in whom Boston takes such pride,
John Singleton Copley. Allston Is repre
sented by some 25 -works. Including por
traits, compositions, landscapes, copies
of old masters and heads, together with
sketches, unfinished oils, studies in sepia. 1
chalk ana many drawings. Most inter- '
esting and valuable are the canvanses
by Gilbert Stuart, than which no gallery j
has so complete a collection. Unquestlon
ably the most notable of these ls the
famous "Atheneum" head of Washing
ton, -which was painted -from life In 179S,
and which ls familiar through reproduc-
tlons of all sorts. There ls also a por-
trait of Martha Washington, which was
painted at tho same time, as well as
the portrait of Washington at porchester
jKeights, which Stuart Is said to have
-painted in nine days.
The late Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes
onco said that "to have a portrait in the
family painted by Copley Is to most Bos
tonlans a trademark of respectability."
.Hero may be seen likenesses of many
prominent people. Including "General War
ren, John Hancock, Samuel and John
Quincy Adams and many others. Nat
urally, of- course, the late William tM.
Hunt is well represented. There arc "ttfo
portraits of himself, one of a lady, some
studies of figures and animals, with a
landscape or two, all of which .are most
Interesting and show the man's strong
personality. With them are many of his
drawings. The ancient pictures are fair
ly representative, and there are a num
ber of works by the early Englishmen,
but the late Frenchmen are better in
evidence. Corot has a portrait, five -excellent
landscapes and a figure composi
tion; Jean Francois Millet has a por
trait, two pictures and 30 drawings and
water colors, and Thomas Couture, he of
the "Decadence of the "Romans," has five
works. There are several native achieve
ments, pictures executed -within recent
years, that have been noteworthy ef
forts and called forth popular approval.
Among these may be mentioned "El
Jaleo," by John S. Sargent; John W.
Alexander's "Pot of Basil": George, de"
Forrest Brush's "Mother and Child": the
"LOST," BY A. F. A. SCHENCK, IN
"Caritas" of Abbott H. Thayer; EHhn

WEEKLY CROP BULLETIN.
Recent .Rains Have Been of Great
Benefit to Grn and Pastures.
Following Is the weekly crop bulletin
Issued by the Oregon Section of the Cli
mate and Crop Service:
The fore part of the "week -was warm
and dry, while the closing days were cool
In Western Oregpn the maximum or
day temperatures ranged between 57 deg.
and 87 deg-v and the .minimum, or night,
temperatures between 46 and 60 deg. In
Eastern Oregon these variations were for
day temperatures between 48 and SS deg.,
and for night temperatures, between 42
and 56 deg.
Taken as a whole, the days have been
cooler than usual, owing to an excessive
amount of cloudiness, -while the nights
have averaged above the normal. The
mean temperature of the week was slight
ly higher than ttiat of the preceding one
and 3.1 deg. below, the mean of the corre
sponding week last year.
The rains have been of great benefit to
pastures and grass, and while delaying
threshing and hopplcklng to a slight ex
tent, It is not thought that any particu
lar damage has resulted.

261 and In the Glencoe building 89. The
enrollment at all these schools Is from
b to 10 per cent ahead of -what It was last
year at the opening. These suburban
districts are greatly affected at the open
ing by the absence of families in tho
hopfields, who usually return before the
close of September. In the Woodstock
School there are over 100 pupils In the
district, and Professor Miller, the prin
cipal, figures up that 96, and possibly 100,
will be in the school before the close
of the month, when all the families havo
returned home. South Mount Tabor ls
not generally affected by this cause, and
the Increase In that district during the
month may not be more than 10. In tho
Russellvllle district there are quite a
nuirber out. In the Montavllla district
the opening attendance Is about 10 per
cent ahead of what It was last year,
but there are fully 100 pupils out who
will enter before the month closes. This
district ls affected by the hopfield ex
odus more than any of the other sub
urban districts. The school children of
the district number 420, and the enroll
ment at the close of last year was 300.
Professor Leatherman expects a large In
crease before the month is out The
sohoolhouse in this district ls the most
attractive of any In the county outside
of Portland. No. 5, Mount Tabor, opened
with an Increased attendance, but many
are absent, and the attendance there will
soon run above 400. Professor Durrette,
the principal, says that many families
In that district have not yet returned
from the hopfield. The census shows that
the school population of No. 5 Is over
600. These five suburban districts open
the year under prosperous conditions in
all lines. Generally houses are all occu
pied, and the schools will fill up during
the month. It Is estimated that the en
rollment in theso-dlstrtcts will reach 1050
by the close of the month. .

Wife Made the Sngrgestlon.
A grocer has excellent opportunity to
know the effects of special foods on his
customers. Mr. R. A. Lytle, of 557 St
Clair street, Cleveland, O., has a long
list of customers that" have been helped In
health by leaving off coffee and using
Postum Food Coffee.
He says, regarding his own experience!
"Two years ago I had been drinking
coffee and must say that I was almost
wrecked in my nerves.
"Particularly In the morning I was so
Irritable and upset that I could hardly
wait until the coffee was served, and
then I had no appetite for breakfast and
did not feel like attending to my store
"One day my wife suggested that inas
much as I was selling so much Postum
Food Coffee there must be some merit In
It, and suggested that we try It I took
home a package, and she prepared It
according to directions. The result was
a very happy one. My nervousness grad
ually disappeared, and today my nerves
are all right. I would advise everyone
affected In any way with nervousness or
stomach troubles to leave off coffee and
use Postum Food Coffee."
