World Noied Sculptors Produce
Marvels In the Plastic Art
Decorative Statuary Fast Assuming
Form at the Panama-Pacific In
RODIGIOUS works o f sculpture are now being completed In the sculp
tural warehouses o f the Panama-Pacific International Exposition.
Many o f them have already long been finished. The works ara re
markable for Imagery and vigor and for beauty of conception.
Not for many years will the world be enabled to enjoy so marvelous a col
lection o f the works o f contemporary sculptors. The World's Columbian Ex
position at Chicago first proved that the greatest talent might lie employed to
pnslui e «van work of temiMimry value. Since then more und more attention
has ls-i n given at each succeeding eximxltlon to sculpture as a form of decora
tion, and iiuw the Panama Pacific International Exposition promises to surpass
•ven Chicago’s exquisite display.
Viewing the superb groups and Individual pieces o f statuary, the visitor
feds like a Lilliputian who has been transported Into a land o f giants. Horn«
o f the great groups are o f coin-sal dimensions. Many o f these great pieces of
statuary will adorn huge triumphal arches and when so placed will seem of
natural size to the visitor who stunds upon the floors o f the ex|H»Hitlon courts.
We present i i | m > ii this page some classical examples o f the sketch m odels
• nd the enlarged figures. A number o f America’s foremost sculptors have
been engaged In the production o f these figures. Among the sculptors are
many names widely known both in America and abroad. The list Includes
A Stirling ( alder, acting director o f sculpture; Albert Jaegers, Furlo Ptoeirrllll,
Leo Leutelli, Robert I. Aitkin. Adolph A. Weinman, Isadora Koutl, Evelyn Bea
trice Longman, Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney, Itouglas Tilden, Gutzou Rorglum,
H. A. MncNell. James E. Fraser. Charles C. Rumxey, Haig Patlgan, Paul Man-
ship, F. G. It. Itotb, Charles Neihaus, I). C. French. Herbert Adams and others.
The sculpture o f the Panama-Pacific International Exposition will carry
out the note o f the ex|>osition In celebrating the opening o f the Panama canal.
The spirit o f achievement as exemplified by America's work will be idealized.

BEAUTIFUL OREGON BUILDING AT THE PANAMA-PACIFIC
INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION. SAN FRANCISCO, 1915.
REGON, the first state to se'eot and dedicate n site at the Pnnatna-
Pacltlc International Exposition, was also the first to accept de
signs for her state building. This very interesting structure,
neighbor to New York’s great huildng, has been designed in the
chaste spirit of the golden age of Greece's architecture. It will be 150 by
250 feet and designed on the classic line o f Icthlnus’ Parthenon. The col
umns, which Greece herself modeled iu marble from previous exemplars
In wood o f a more r.nclent architecture, will revert to the original and be
o f timber brought from Oregon's forests. They will be five feet In
diameter and forty feet In height Not only will the materials which
will l>e placed within the structure he Oregon’s products, but the ma
terials o f which the state palace will be constructed will come from Ore
gon's vast resources.

DOGS OF LABRADOR.
They Go Lika IN* Wind and Are ’ -t*,
l*ss and TsarUsa.
In Dr. Grenfell’s book be tell«
some interesting things concerning
the Labrador dogs. The creatures
are fed once a day and are always
hungry, and yet a team will go for
two or three days without food. Dr.
Grenfell says that he has traveled
seventy miles a day with a half
breed team of seven dogs and 250
po unde of baggage. “ The great
bt-l auty of a dog team ia that it
seems to banish all conventionali
You can go anywhere and
everywhere with no roada, no
hedges, no walls, no restriction but
your own will, and that will with
out rein or bridle you make your
Dogs can carry you up almost the
steepest snow slope and down again
in safety. They do not slip or sink
in, and if they fall over even a high
cliff in the winter they are very
rarely hurt. They seem to under
stand what you say and so form a
better companion than a horse.
They are automobiles which need
no handling of their machinery.
They enjoy traveling almost more
than their masters enjoy it. They
learn to love you as only a dog will,
and if it were not for their occa
sional outbreaks of wickedness they
would make the best of companions.
As it is, I know of no greater pleas
ure possible thar a large, strong
team, a good leader, a brisk, bright
spring day and a really long journey
“ Our dogs know little or no fear
and, unlike the wolves, will un
hesitatingly attack even the largest
polar bear,” Dr. Grenfell says again.
“ On one occasion a man’s dogs,
traveling along smooth sea ice,
scented a white bear and started
off like the wind. They suddenly
turned a point and ran right into
him, so that the traces tangled
round the bear before the astonish
ed driver had time to unlath his
gun. As soon as he could he cut
the traces, but even in harness tha
dogs kept bruin at bay. Though
the bear stood up to fight on hi*
hind Iegr, the dogs managed to get
in some good bites without being
“ On another occasion,” adds the
doctor, “ a man brought me a spe
cially valued dog that a bear had
squeezed. The bear had been sight
ed some distance off on the ice floe,
and the dogs were slipped to hold
him up for the hunter. By the tima
he arrived on the spot they had
the bear practically killed.

clawed and one squeezed.”
SLIPPED"P A S T DEATH.
Curious Casa* of Paopl* Who Mi****
It by a Hair’s Braadth.
A t Geneva recently a professional
acrobat who performs on a trapeze
attached to a balloon fell into the
lake of Zurich, a distance of 1,500
He swam unhurt to the
shore, just missing death by a few
yards, for had he not sprung from
his seat when within fifty feet of
the lake he would have been dash
ed to pieces on the rocks.
Several instances of people fall
ing from great heights and surviv
ing to tell the tale can be quoted.
A t Brighton an actor known as
Lieutenant Daring, who was play
ing the part of a naval officer who
is attacked by brigands in a cine
matograph play and who was sup
posed to slip over the cliff— in re
ality, however, to stand on a plank
which had been placed below the
edge to make the illusion complete
— missed his footing and fell ninety
feet below into the sea, escaping
with a sprained wrist.
An even more miraculous escape
after a fall over a cliff was that of
a seven-year-old child who had been
gathering flowers on Culver cliff,
near Sandown, Isle of Wight, who
slipped and fell 200 feet. She wts
only slightly injured, a bottle which
she carried being unbroken.
Often the merest accident pre
vents death. A Cardiff laborer some
time ago fell from a scaffolding
about fifty feet high, but as he fel
his foot caught in the scaffolding,
and he hung head downward until
rescued. Similarly a woman who
fell out of a window backward at
llolbom lately was saved from in
stant death by her clothing having
caught in the window catch.

John Hazleton of St. Neot’e, Hun
