Millet and "The Angelus."
It was only after long years' of strug
gle and dire poverty, through which
Millet was consoled und HUpported by
his wife, that tho peasant painter was
nble to tnkpthe three roomed cottage
at Barhlzon nml "try to do something
really good" It wnn then that he he
gan to paint that most beautiful "poem
of poverty," "The Angelus," which is
today one of the most vtiluahle pic
tures In the world. Again and again
he threw anlde the pletuie In despair
of over finishing it to his satisfaction,
(nut as often his wife replaced It on
the eusel and Induced htm to continue.
On one occasion he was so Incensed
at not being able to produce n certain
effect that he seized a knife and would
have destroyed the canvas und ended
the matter once for ull hud not his
wife" fortunately seized his hand and
Induced him to give the picture another
trial Thus It was that at last "The
Angelus" found 11 place on the walls
of the Louvre. The success It won en
couraged Millet to paint many more
pictures and thus place himself among
the luimortals in art.
Shot His Own Henc.
Two uelghbnrs kept hens and quar
reled because they scratched each oth
er's potato rows up. One sold bis
hens unknown to the other, who made
a large run and fastened his hens up,
"Now, the first lieu I see in my gar
den I shall shoot."
Next day he saw a hen scratching
as usual, so be got the gun aud shot
it and then threw It over his neigh
