the statement that he is a "heap good

According to the police the Chinese
on Ferry street are of a different fac

it is well known that famous ex-guii-man
holds forth on Ferry street at a
Chinese restaurant. This fact tends to
produce some uneasiness among local
Orientals but no strange Chinese have
shown themselves about the city. Six
Chinese from the Independence district
went to Portland yesterday but it ap
pears that one of their kinsmen has
been badly wounded in the tong war
in Portland and their trip was rather
to be at the bedside of their relative
than to take part in the gun escapades.
Local Chinese say that most of their

The art lecture last night at Waller
chapel on Pre-Kaphiielitisin was attend
ed by a fair size crowd and all were
well pleased with the speaker, Prof.
Alice Ootid and her lecture. Mrs. Oodd
treated her subject as only an export
could. She gave a comprehensive,
though not detailed history of the be
ginning of art and passed from one
stage to another noting the important
productions of the period and also giv
ing the characteristics which serve to
distinguish art of a given period.
Coining then to the Renaissance and
all artists of that timo she depicted
the characteristic of art that typify
that period. The early artists used for
their models Biblical settings which
they pictured with a feeling of relig
iousness and childlike realism.
Mrs. Hodd gave as a warning to thoso
who study art, not to study tho works
of a modern artist while you study the
work of the primitive artists, as they
do- not make a favorable contrast, there
arc distinct steps which one must take
in studying art the same as in acuom
plishing any other subject hence they
must come in consecutive order. One
comes to recognizo three dimensions;
length, breadth and thickness, iu a
painting after a careful study of it.
One strange thing about the paint
ings of the early artists is, they could
not paint a baby's face, they were in-,
variably the faces ot adults on a un-!
by 's body. I
Angels were favorite models for early!
artists, and nearly always they were!
women, rnther than men. "Today,"!
said Mrs. -Dodd, "men set up one worn-1
an as an angel which they adore for a
time, but it doesn't last long." I
The saints, seraphim and cherub-!
ims were also frequently painted, in!
fact tho early artists held that art;
should be used to portrav religious sen-i
jtiinents and subjects. j
Kiiskin in his criticism on art could;
Wasco! not understand why art did not por-i
tray senos regardless ot their nature,
he did not understand the independent;
status of art.
The Pre Kaphaelits Brotherhood was
established bv three young painters,!
chief of whom was Oante Gabriel Kos-1
etti, his idea was to free art from the!
conventional form which it had adopted
to make it simpler and to pivturize nn-1
hire. For example he painted a picture
of the Christ iu the robes of a high !
priest of the state church. This picture j
"The Light of The World'' now hangs
at Oxford college and is a very valu l
Some of tho useful achievements of
the art of this period was the using of
decorative art methods to beautify the!
homes; a new architecture was also be-i
gun. Some of the modern lminifesta-i
tions are: .Mission furniture, simpuc-:
itw in decorations of homes, etc., and I
these arc steps toward progress. ;
Modem art has nothing new in its!
embrace; a great deal is borrowed from
the mist, from the Hen tisnnce period, i
for it was a period of creative aiit. Art-!
ists then looked out ou the world with j
awakening eyes and they established a;
precedence which later artists follow.;
Formerly, however, artists believed in!
giving oipial emphasis to all parts of a
picture. Today the artist concentrates
ou one object and subordinates the rest
to it. I
The lecture was richiy illustrated:
