witli material for tho paintings which

eludes to so great an extent.
So much for tho man's caiccr. Now
let us touch upon Ids theories on matters
mtlstle and hoclal. which belong to the
leading causes of Ids prominence. My
dilTereut conversations witli him hav'o
i.atlslled mo that ho considers it
us much within tho at tint's sropo to
render service to down tioddeu humanity
ns tho clergyman's, tho writer's or tho
professional philanthropist's. Ilodoes not
say that w hen he started in to paint it was
with a view to reforming mankind, but
rertainly such would scent to bo the
tendeiteV of his work. Ho is it realist, mid
his realism Is of 11 canst ie kind. It Is n
heroic medicine the use of which ho thinks
instilled by tlio e.xtremelv diseased con
dit Ion of tlio bod v social and politic. He
limns war, for instance, in all Its naked
horror. It is not glittering uniform 1 that
wo see on hl.i canvases, not pretty ilgures
on prancing steeds nor wounded warriors
In theatrical poses. lie shows tlio reverse
of tho picture tho wounded writhing In
exquisite agony; tlio dying convulsed with
tho last awful spasm, 'the dead rigid, dls
memhered, hidcoun. Such workns this
must necessarily i.pen tho eyes of tho un
thinking mid diminish tlio natural lovoof
tlio race for bloodshed and atrlfo Vcrcst
chagln Is realistic In still another reuse.
None of his paintings can bo called tho
products of his Imagination, fur
no depicts imlv Incidents witnessed
by himself, nml when wo coutomplato
0110 of tho Central Asian scenes, for lit
stance, wo feel it has been painted on tho
it Is in tlio domain ot religion Hint
Vorestehagin's work has caused tlio most
discussion. I'ollouing a logical iicmtouco,
ho has not hesitated to depict i.ciipturul
subjects, not as tradition tciulrcd, but ns
ho understood them himself niter years of
historical research mid 11 prolonged visit
to the Holy Iind. Ho has departed from
the lieatcu tracK 01 both nucletit and
modern masters, and represents Christ
with reddish locks mid strongly marked
.Semitic features. Ho has also painted
him In company with n family of brothers
and sisters. In another picture, of which
it sketch accompanies this letter, ho shows
us the rtarlour In thu net of leaving tho
tomb oil tho third day nfter tho crucillx
Ion. The.so paintings wero exhibited In
Vienna mid rnised n storm of opposition.
Cardinal .Sanglbaur wrote it strong pas
toral denouncing tlio "sacillego." Hut
Veresteliagln bad an nnswer for ovory
animadversion, and ho proved ho
yoiid tho shadow of a doubt that the
tombs of tlio Holy Iutul wero so con
f,tructed that tho only means of egress
was it liolo exactly largo enough to r.dmlt
a supltin body. Still tho acrimoiilouu tin

VIEWS ON 3ELF EDUCATION.
i:(tt Mlnil Mint Ho 111 Own f.tiinol limine.

After 11 youth has paawsl through the com
mon school of country or clly, M-lf education
Income not only Krlhlt but easy. Ho much
dcK!tiih iihiii self that a eollego coum j
valuable otilt s'lfaras Hut student exerts his
own ni sonnl will tower nnd makes hitiixolf
master of the situation. Colleges offer mi
opiHirtttuity, but tliuy cannot mnko a M-holar
' cannot malso nil orator or n doctor era
ttntcriiunii. Tho eollego professor feel hovr
powerless ho It when the parent or guardian
of a fashionable, 1 icli and Indolent lad intro
duces tliU mortal to tlio teacher and ex
presses a desire to have a man mado out of
the well dix-sisst nnd woll fed tnntei I'll; hut
when nn earnest, open faced, perhaps pov
erty Mrlii.cn farmer loy has walked llfty
miles to Hud 11 group of piofessors
nnd 11 collection of Itoows, there Is
Joy in the faculty, from tho president
down to tho humblest tutor, because it
young man hnscomo who can make n wiiolar
out of himself. In tho llrst twelve years of
life a school Is needed; In all tho remainder
of life each mind must bo Its own school
houso mid l.ccp Its ow 11 school.
Theto nro many forms of human will and
many Bindings of taste Often when tlio
will power is great enough to bind a mind tj
the dally tas't of a student tliero is not tneto
enough In tho heart to call tho will power
Into action. A Chicago man, who had ex
hausted lovoaud money both in tho attempt
to 11111I.0 his rou absorb in some manner tlio
text Itool.s of tlio best Institutions, found at
last, to Ids surprise and delight, that his son
Hssessod 11 gieat tasto and talent in a drafts
man ntul machinist. Ho eared nothing for
Homer, but ho could mnko 11 locomotive.
Hlneo this development took place the father
has had a tcnccful timu of It, for his son Is
running with great zeal along his own good
t)no of tl.o finest surgeons hi tlio United
Htntot went through 11 college, indeed, hut
when ho graduated ho knew "httlo IjiMii and
less Uivok," but them was not a medical
work in tlio library ho had not had in his
riHitn for steclnl study, and there was not 11
Itouo in tho room of anatomy which ho did
not prl) nbovo it lesson in astronomy or
Ono of tho ndvnntages of self education
lies in tho fact that it permits a strong will
to follow- 11 Krsoual tasto. An explanation
of the grent succesj of tell of what are called
self mado men may bo found in their free
dom to follow tho path of most attractive
ness. Many a mind U diverted by tho father
or mother, or by tho dignity of a, college
course or faculty, from tho channel for
which nature lltted it, and thus a genius dies
not of neglect but of too much attention.
A writer In an American lot-low say..:
"After 17 a recitation h a stultltleitttoa."
Tlio writer evidently iitoins that when a stu
dent has 1 cached that ago he should bo ah
sorltcd In hi own business and should not
tile, out to say a lesson In anatomy nr in cal
culus when he hasou Ills table an untliilshcd
e-way upon some themo in (tolitlcs or ethics.
Whether this 1 enuirU nltotit the seventeenth
year be true or net, it illustrates tlio thought
that tlio best part of education is conducted
by self nit her than by n tutor. If n man or
n youth IIiuU hliuclf unable to go to college,
he ntul not feci that nil is lost, or that half
or n third Is lost. Self is the all. It Is that
something which rimsiultovo tho schoolhoiiso.

Bitting one day during the past week in

1 overheard nu explanation by nu old sea

owing to tho 'open bridge system.' You take

Tho death of ex-Marshal Hizaiuo leaves

Mahon, formctly president of tho republic.
Tho republic iJ apparently nverso to creating
Held marshals; for no one has been nppointed
to that rank since the fall of tho second em
pire. Tho title, which was llrst established
ns long ago as 118.x, was rost lavishly used
by the two Napoleons, tho first of whom
created twenty-tlvo Held marshals and tho
last fifteen. Itut thoso wero times of war
nnd glory, when often tho marshal's coveted
baton was won by it single brilliant stroke of
martial genius. If tho piping days of peace

create mora Held marshals nnd tho oor con
