The full-length portrait of Martha
Washington, painted by Mr. Andrews,
is valuable from a purely artistic, as
well as a historical standpoint. It
hangs in the east room of the White
house, near the portrait of Washing
ton, and is of the same size. The im
pression is that of a lady of calm and
dignified presence, in the dress of the
period. It may bo a matter of inter
est to people who believe that hands
and. faces have something to any to
each ether, to know that Mr. Andrews
thinks so, too; that he has made a
careful study of hands, and that not
a little in the month of time spent on
this picture was bestowed on them.
The figure is in perfect drawing; good
anatomy underlies its graceful con
tours; the flesh tints are warm, sym
pathetic and true; and in the skillful
management of light and shadows, and
the painting of texture, Mr. Andrews
technique shows the effect of study
abroad, and of that French school of
art to which we have learned to look
for good portraiture. This is the sort
of work that in Paris goes to the Salon,
and in which here is hope for the fu
ture of American art. The effect of
the .whole is thoroughly artistic and
satisfying, and it is pleasant to find a
historical picture done by the best
methods of the best art.
Corr. American Agriculturist.
One pleasant day we rode twenty
"jniles over the Laramie" plains,
- -from Laramie citv to the Little
Laramie river, where tve found a
prosperous sheep raiser from Ne
braska, namd Farrell. There
were no neighbors for miles around
: with the exception of Motlef, the
historian, who had left his father's
pleasant home, near Boston, Mass.,
and located ti sheep ranche
close by here. The Farrels gave
us a most hospitable reception,
inasmuch as one of our party was
Mr. "Weston, the auditor of the
state of Nebraska. Furthermore
they had long been subscribers to
the American Agriculturist, and
the last number tying on the table
was not an unpleasant reminder of
home on these far-away plains.
"VVe bade them good-bye late in
the afternoon, turned off to the
right of Sheep Mountain, entering
a narrow plain between high ranges
of hills, spurred Coward our jaded
animal, until the gathering shadows
warned us that we could not pro
ceed any further with safety. At
daybreak .we spied a large ilock of
sheep in a corral close by a rude
cabin or dugout, in which were
two boys, sons of Mr. Farrell. Here
twelve miles or more from home,
they had been tending a flock of
twenty-three hundred sheep dur
ing the entire season. They shot
their game with an old rifle, did
their own cooking, and lived en
tirely alone with their dogs and
two ponies employed in herding
sheep, which were driven into a
, . corral every night, as a protection
agaiust boars, wolves, and wild
,. animals. An antelope which one
of them had shot the day previous,
was suspenped near the door of
the cabin. There was a good range
here, and the father had in the
spring-time, sent the sheep and the
boys to possess" it. You will be
surprised when I tell you that these
two lads entrusted with the care ot
over two thousand sheep, and liv
ing here in this remote, secluded
spot, were only eleven and thirteen
years of age. It is astonishing,
the early self-reliance which these
frontier' children display, the ski fl
which? as mere urchins, they attain
in herding sheep.
