It "Will Be Replaced by Collection of
Rembrandt Pictures Tburgdar,
It te the intention of the Portland Art
Asjodatfcm to close the Van Dyck exhibit
rtth an pea evening next Friday, to
which the public te very cordially Invited.
This wlU be the last opportunity to see
this notable collection of pictures, and
as there will be no admission charge It
te expected that large numbers of people
trill avail themselves of the privilege so
sourteouely extended them.
The great Flemish portrait-painter, An
thony Van Dyck, who was born 300 years
ago, has left behind him marvelous por
traits of the great celebrities of the day,
kings, court beauties, wits, generals, and
statesmen. As he spent much of his time
at the English court, where he became a
favorite with Charles I, many of his
best portraits show faces of persons that
re (or should be) familiar to every stu
dent of English history. For this reason
the educational value of this exhibit can
hardly be overestimated. Every girl and
boy in Portland, -r ho Is of an age to ap
preciate the importance of these pictures,
should take advantage of this last op
portunity to become familiar with the
famous men and women of the 17th cen
tury. In each of the portraits the inner
snan stands revealed in marvelous fashion
to the eyes of the spectator, for Van
2yck saw beneath the surface and read a
man's character between the lines. This
transcendent gift of penetrative, insight
into the subconsciousness of a man's soul
tae made many of bis portraits not only
realistic, but prophetic Such Is the
famous picture of Charles I (No. C5), show
ing him in three aspects. There are very
lew plebeian faces seen In the room. In
nearly all of them is that careless, "baf
fling mixture of grace and dignity that
tnarks the blood royaL
This first installation of the Ladd col
lection of photographs numbers about 265
pictures, m of these being in frames, and
! in cases. The average size Is about
86x30 Inches, though a score of them are
tauch larger than this. The entire col
lection will number altogether about 15,000,
which is second in point of size among sim
ilar collections In the United States, while
In artistic value and beauty it yields the
salm to none other. The work was done
y the famous art firm, Braun, Clement
& Co., of Paris. The whole forms a
4rteoty gift, for which Portland art
lovrs will always be most grateful.
PortticoralBB Rembrandt Exhibit.
Now that the public has had two
months' time to enjoy the Van Dyck ex
hibit, it will be removed, and a collection
of Rembrandt pictures substituted In Its
place. These will be opened to the public
Thursday afternoon, February 22, and -will
embrace about 109 photographs from the
best-known pictures in the great European

letter from. Mrs. Crowley, wife of M. P.
Crowley, requesting that the body of her
husband be burled In the military plot.
Another was received from Captain J. Al.
Poorman, formerly commanding company

were both killed at Marllao the same
night as Berry, be given sepulture in the

Norton has mate the same request, which
makes the total number for the miltlary
cemetery six, up to date. Doubtless oth

IN "THE RIVALS,"
in, Sheridan's Corned.
At the Hsrguun. last night, the Jamcs-
Kidder-Haaford combination closed a very
successful engagement In Sheridan's fa
mous comedy, "The Rivals," which was
played to a large audience. "The Rivals"
brought into prominence members of the
company who are not starred on the bills.
Honors fell easily to Mrs. Henry Vanden
tioff, who played Mrs. Malaprop most de
lightfully. Mrs. Vandenhoff belongs to a
school of actors who are specially fitted
for English comedy of ,100 years ago, and
who carry what literary critics call the
"atmosphere" of the play and the period.
Mrs. VandeBboff shines in a role made fa
mous to the past and the present genera
tion by the late Mrs. John Drew.
Harry Dangdon was the Sir Anthony
Absolute. His was a capital performance
of the Irascible old father, and of him be
It said that there is a genuineness of old
fashioned fervor in his work that charmed
our ancestors and will charm posterity so
long as standard English comedy holds a
piece on the stage.
John A. ElMer etaowed how much a
capable actor can get out of the role Tof
David, which, in ordinary hands, is Insig
nificant. Barry Johnstone's performance
of Sir Lucius O'Trigger was neat and
In every 'way admirable.
Mr James played Bob Absolute, Mr.
Hanford Captain Absolute, and Miss lad
der Lpala Languish. The star triumvir
ate are essentially Shakespearean actors.
GOOD TRAIN SERVICE.
Between Portland rind Chicago Via
the O. R- Jt A.
The time to Chicago by either of the O.
R K. trains, the St. Paul fast mall, or
the Porttaad-Chleago special, is only
three and a half days. This Is several
Jours faster than by any other route
f-om fce coast. The cars on either of
the above trains are new and strictly up
to date, being fitted with ail the latest
improvements, sad are vesttbuled through
out. Dining ears are attached to all
trains, thus doing away with the pro
verbial " minutes for dinner."

That there's a growing demand for a better
class of most everything, clothing in particu-
lar. Men have learned a wholesome lesson
how to steer a middle course between ex
travagance and the other extreme of trashy
cheapness. The day of shoddy clothing has
gone, and the high-cost tailor to order, who
charged largely for his name, must turn his
talents in some other direction. . MOYER
