The Doctor Explains.
The HKB reporters were about starting
on their rounds for news yesterday , when
thn oflice door opened and an individual ,
who&e appearance suggested that ho was
laboring under suppressed excitement ,
stepped In.
' 1 want to ECC a reporter , " lie re
marked brusquely.
One of the local scribes dropped a gen-
r.le hint that ho was a reporter.
The llrsl speaker , lowering his tone ,
dniil , "How lunch . will you give for a
good item of news ? "
"Tho BKK don't ' pay for local items of
IICWH , eir , " the hired man of the pencil
feebly suggested.
"Don't , eh ? Not for a boss item ? "
"No , sir , not for the biggest item in
the world "
"Huinl" said the first speaker , medi
tatively , "lot mo see. Well , then , now
much will you take to publish this' My
name , " he continued , dropping his voieo
to a mysterious whlspcr/'isDr. ' Parcell. "
He opened a black case and after much
tumbling , produced a sheet of white
paper , on which were written the follow
ing awesome phrases and sentences :
"Murder will out ! "
"Rum and bad women will mini"
"Tlieho are quotations which have sug
gested themselves to my mind since
reading the scandal published wherein
my name" was mentioned.
"A word to the wise is suflicicnt.
GKO. H. PAUCKU , . "
"It'll cost you 20 cents a line to have.
that published as an advertisement , "said
the reporter.
"WiiowlTVonty cents a line , " returned
the doctor. "That's outr - . However.
you put it in the paper. I'll yay for it ,
and , suddenly grabbing the little black
case , ho disappeared as mysteriously as
he had floated in.
1)11. l'AItCii.I , EXPLAINS.
Later in the day the same rcnorter
called upon Dr. Parcel ! , and asked him
for an explanation of his side of the
'Dlnsmore-Parccll case. Tlio doctor
"hesitated somewhat , but a little pressure
induced him to talk freely.
"In the first place , " ho said , "I
went into Dr. Dinsmorc's busi
ness with him at his request. I
always liked him and I guess he
always trusted mo. At any rate , ho
nearly always called mo in consultation ,
before wo went into partnership , when
ho Inu ) any difficult cases on hand.
Jn fact , ho always said that I
was a first-class homcopathist.
Wo wont into business together
with the understanding that we were to
oharo profits alike. Lrom the first hour
there was trouble. He would talk about
mo behind my back and say all sorts of
hard things about me. Why , 0110 day I
got one. of the young ladies to show mo
now to work the galvanic battery. When
the doctor heard of it ho was perfectly
wild with rage and cursed me outrage
ously , asking me why I had not come to
him to.make inquiiics about the battery
nstcad of to the girl. Now w.hat do youi '
tliink of that ? It was the same way
about other trivial matters. Lately I got
to smelling the taint , of liquor on his
breath , and I determined to draw out of
Slip business , so I notilied him to that
efl'cct on July 0 , saying that I would go
out of the business three months from Oc
tober 4. Why , " he continued , growing
confidential , "lr. ) Dinsmoro has been
going 'about saying that I am a man of
mill perception ? What d'ye think of
that ? Why , young man , I toll yout 1
don't believe there is a man in this city
who is any quicker of perception than I
am. That may sound egotistical , but I
don't believe there is. No , sir. Perhaps
there is such a man , but I don't think it. "
"Dr. Dinsmore accuses you of giving
your patients the wrong medicines , or
plain water , so that you may keep them
iick longer for tlio purpose of extorting
money. "
"It's an outrageous lie. Not a word of
truth to it. I use water In mixing medi
cines. So docs every physician. "
"What about your singing ? "
"About my singing ? You mean in tlio
presence of Dr. Dinsmoro and his wife ?
\Vcll , young man , I'll toll you. Things
got to going from bad to worse in the
aanitarium , and 1 thought I would chirp
A little to counteract this tendency. Why ,
Dr. Dinsmore's ' presence got to have a
Corribly depressing influence on the at-
tondunts. patients , and in fact everybody
who went into the sanitarium. In away
there was something mysteriously blue
about the atmosphere that would affect
us all. So I would sing once in a while
to prevent this , you seo. Of course I
would quit as soon as patients would
come in. 1 only chirped a little to coun
teract Dr. Dinsmore's depressing ten
dency , you might say. "
A Wil'u Who Refuses to Bow Before
Public Hcntlnieiit.
A reporter called upon Mr. J. T. Paul-
Eon yesterday to learn his side of the
Wooldridgo bigamy caso. But
he persistently refused to talk.
"I haven't got nn/thing to ajV'ho de
clared. 1 have got too muoli on my mind
anyway. "
"Tho the public is interested In know
ing what you think about the thing. Is
Wooldridgc "
"You're a reuortor and I don't want to
talk to you. Go away. Talk to that
hitching post. "
Mr. Paulson's eldest son was mot
shortly afterwards in tlio Rook Springs
dairy wagon , and proved to bo more
"Wooldridgo has loft the country , " ho
said , "and I don't know whore 'ho is.
Ho certainly isn't at the dairy.
I haven't seen anything of him
filnco ho left the dairy Thursday morning
ho didn't come homo Thm > day night
and I guess bo's skipped out. Yes , of
course , my sister feels nil broken up
about this and she don't more than half
boheve the stories that are told about her
husband. She is willing to live with
him , but ! don't know whether we'll lot
her or not. I can't ' say what my father
Intends to do about prosecuting him if
ho should return. No , ho won't bo in
the dairy business with us any more. If
lie returns , we'll Ecttlo up with him and
lot him go. " EEH
votes it very strange that Mr. Paulson ,
the father , does not take active stops to
push Iho prosecution of Wooldridgo , It
is understood , however , that the internes-
ulon of the daughter for her husband hns
had something to do with mitigating the
severity of the father's feelings , In fact ,
it is pretty well known that Mr , Paulson
pave Ids son-in-law timely warning to
Iftavo. District Attorney Estello said
this morning that ho should take stops
to indict Wooldndgo , provided he could
assure himsulf that the evidence was
strong enough to convict.
Marshal Cummings is a very much < lis-
sjusUil man. Ho thinks that Wooldridgo
ought lo bo prosecuted apd is very indig
nant because Mr. Paulson docs not think
lo too , As already intimated , Shed II
Hickman is milled about the
matter , too. When asked by a reporter
if lie thought the charges against
Wooldridgo were true. ho said :
"Why , of course they're true 1 know
all about the man , He used to bo em
ployed as janitor in the court house at
Marshall. I tell you that the man's cot
lots of cheek to deny that lie's a nigger.
Why , I can bring 50) ) men from Marshall
who will swear that ho is a nigger. Just
because he's got a light-colored skin he
is trying to pa's himself oT ( for a white.
Why , ho always used to associate with
niggers in Marshall , and never hail any
thing lo do with white people. "
"Do you know anpthingabout his mar-
HiiL'o in Missouri ? "
"Yes , I know that ho is married and
have ccn a copv of the ccitiheate on file
at the court hou < o. His wife is a mulat
to , whose name was Li//.io Smith. She
afterward married a man named John
son and after Ids death was married to
Wooldridgo. About three weeks ago
the negro came down to Marshall to look
after the divorce suit which he had insti
tuted .sonic time previous. As the court
thought that ho had no grounds upon
which to obtain a divorce the ease was
dismissed. Prosecuting Attorney James
( . 'oonley told mo the other night that
Wooldridgc at that time had a conversa
tion with liim about the matter.
' " lie 'I married
'Suppo-se , said , got
again ; what could be done ? '
Why , ' rejoined the lawyer , 'you'd put
your foot in it. You must , be careful not
to do anything ol the kind. ' "
What the Investigating Committee
Sny ol'the liiillnrd Cnsc.
Messrs. J. Kopp and T. Kr.ilTt called
at the Bit : : ollico last night in regard tote
to the trouble between Mr. Billiard and
OIHeers Mat/.a and McBride. They are
entirely impartial parties nnd are
only interested in the case by having been
appointed by the Knights of Labor to in
vestigate it thoroughly , which they did
and upon that investigation were or
dered to bring charges against the o Ul
cers before the council. In the first place
these gentlemen want it distinctly under
stood that socialism has nothing what
ever to do with a single point in the case ,
and any assertion to the contrary by the
ollieors or their friends is false. Mr.
Kopp , who is of Iho firm ol Kopp , Drci-
bus & Co. , maunfacturercrs of candies ,
belongs to the same assembly of Knights
of Labor as Billiard , the injured man.
He stales that farther than this he docs
not know Billiard and previous to Satur
day last lie did not know him by name.
The facts in the case as far as ho ( Kopp )
is concerned he says are these : Saturday
night Billiard sent for him and ho went
to his house ami a request was made to
bring the matter before ho assembly
Knights of Labor. This Mr. Kopp
did and he and Mr. Krafl'l were appointed
a committee to investigate the matter
and report thereon. U his they did as
thoroughly as possible , vjsiting and ex
amining Billiard and his wile and all
those having any knowledge of the
trouble witn tiio policemen. On the
committee's report they were ordered to
prefer charges against the officers before
the council , which instructions they fol
lowed. Further than this both gentle
men say they had and have nothing to do
witli the case. Mr. Krafl't says , howovcr ,
that the ease would have been investi
gated by the assembly K. of L. to which
liullurd belonged , whether Mr. Kopp had
been called upon by the injured man or
not. Both gentlemen report that Bui-
lard is in a critical condition. They also
state that as far as they are able to learn
from eye witnesses , that Billiard when
nlnccd under arrest on the night
of the affray was willing to
? o with McBride , but wanted
Lo get his coat. As ho went around the
corner of his house to get it McBride
seized him , struck him on the head with
liis club , dragged him along the ground ,
kicked him , anil even stood over
liim with a revolver , threatening
to shoot. When the patrol wagon
arrived Dr. Stout , who was present ,
lirotcstcd against Bullanj being taken to
the station"as his condition was critical ,
and on the doctor's protest the injured
man was allowed to remain at home.
Like all cases of this kind , tliero are two
sides , and the UEB has given both. The
council will doubtless have an opportu
nity to hear both , and with it the verdict
lies. The socialist-anarchist business
apparently is a bngboar in connection
with the caso.
Which , at Boyd's Opera House , Is
Being Stocked With Scenery.
The carpets have becnjandjtaken ofT the
opera house floors , stairs , out of the boxes
and sent to the carpet-boating establish
ment whore they will drop tons of dust.
The lobby looks deserted and a number
of strange faces of workmen are visible
around the familiar precincts. The stage
has been turned into a carpenter shop
and Stage Carpenter Booth and Al Kos-
tor , the property man , with a number of
other hands are engaged in making
frames for now scenes and other devices
to bo usc'd the coming season. The
"painter's bridge" which has boon idle
so long is now occupied by the artist ,
Graham , of tlio firm of Graham & Davis
of Kansas City. This gentleman arrived
yesterday , and already has inadu con
siderable progress in * the painting for
which he camo. Ho will bo engaged here
about six weeks when the opera house
will reopen with n fresh and now supply
of beautiful scenery. This policy of re
plenishing tlio scenery every year at
Boyd's is ono which is commended by the
actors who come hero , the inora espec
ially because it is carried out hero more
fully than in any other house on the Mis
souri rivor. It is also appreciated by the
people and lends a now interest to almost ,
every production.
Mr. Graham will , this year , paint more
now and ra-toueh more old scenes than he
has over done on any of his earlier visits.
Among this year's work will bo eight
street wings , of both ancient and mod
ern styles. These will bo cut In profile ,
and aot as business places , public build
ings and private residences. The stage at
the Boyd has never had street wings before
fore , it being found necessary to supply
their places with the wood wings. Ho
will also paint a white pointed Eliza
bethan interior decorated with armorial
bearings , illuminated windows and feat
ures peculiar to the that age. This will
bo particularly appropriate for a largo
number of operas and is being painted
expressly for them. Beside those , there
are several other "interiors , " one of
which is to bo most elaborate hi ddslgn
and excellent in treatment.
The supply of sot prices consisting of
rocks , trees , houses and other articles of
like nature is to bo increased , so that , iu
fact the stage will have at least fifty nor
cent , of its material that will bo fresh to
the audience ,

Yesterday morning migoVnkcloyrciu1 [ -
crcdu < lccs5onin ! [ the linbcnscorpn > | casoof
Asliburn vs. Shepparil , in which the
father endeavored to sucuro possession
of Ins two cnildrcn , Nannie and LHlio ,
aged respectively live and three years.
Tin ; court denied the motion nnd decided
to leave ono of the children in thn care of
the grand parents and the other in that of
the annt of the little ones , in whoso
charge they have been for three voars
back. The tleeMon was rendered with
much sympathetic feeling on the part of
the judge , and was attentively listened to
by everybody in the court room. The at
tendance was qiiito largo and many of
the persons composing it were ladies.
The children were also present
in the chnrgc of their present
guardians , and evoked much admi
ration by their pretty faces.
The.judge referred to the dentil of the
mother , which took place In Iowa three
years ago , also the indigent circumstances -
stances in which the husband was r.t the
time , ho being unable to pay the expenses
of his wife's illness without mortgaging
the household goods. He then spoke
about the mother's dying request , to llio
effect that her children should be cared
for by their grand narents and aunt. Ho
then related now the last-mentioned par-
tic had complied with the request , and
with no objection on the part of the
father Lately , however , the latter had ,
for some reason , unknown , sought to get
possession of his children , notwithstand
ing that tiie latter were well cared for
and loved by their present guardians.
He then referred to the law of the case ,
the pniu'iiilo of which in the early law
was the right of the parents to have the
maintenance of their ofl'spring. Such
a law he hold was the law of nature , su
perior to any human enactment , but ho
thought that of paramount importance. ,
and in this instance such was the case ,
was the welfare of the children which
ought to bo considered. The little ones
were now housed and at homo with rela
tives who admired and loved them , cared
for them , tended them in illness and
prided in their goodness and beauty. If
they were lobe taken away trom their
present guardians they would be taken
by the father , who , since his wife's death ,
had not made for himself a homo where
ho could be the master. To shut them
up in such a place would deprive relatives
of the right to visit them only by the
siiilcrmico of the woman who owned the
boarding. They would thus bo
largely deprived of the care of the father
and' entirely of the loying interest of
blood relations. Such , ho thought , would
not conduce to the prospective advan
tage of the children and the decision
was to allow the children to remain with
their grandparents and annt. Sears ,

the decision and will aupeal. The pres
ent guardians of the children were re
quired to give $1,000 bonds not be remove

An Interesting ; Unco ofAVhlch Europe
IH the Goal.
The first train of eighty carloads of tea ,
bounil from Japan to Europe , passed
through Omaha yesterday , having made
better than passenger time on the run
from San Francisco to this city. There is
nothing very unusual , as a general
thing , about the arrival of a train load of
tea in Omaha , but in this case the matter
is decidedly interesting. The fact is that
a contest is taking place to determine
whether tea can be shipped from China
and Japan to Europe quicker by the
overland route or by the Suez canal
route. By the former route the tea is
shipped to America in the Pacilio Ocean
steamers. The cargo then goes across
the continent via the Central Pacitic ,
Union Pacilic and connections , being
.shipped thcnco across the Atlantic to
Via the Suez canal route , tea goes be
low India through the Hcd sea , past the
Malay peninsula , through the Suez canal
into the Mediterranean and thence to
Europe. The latter route is somewhat
the shortest , and the sailing vessels whioh
are engaged in the contest arc of the
ilcetest description. At the same time
the fact that fast railroad time is made
in crossing the American continent will ,
it is thought , give the overland route tiie
advantage. The fast steamship , Hyder-
bad , carries the tea from Japan to San
Francisco. The contest is an interesting
one , and its outcome will bo awaited
with a good of interest by American
ami European importers.

by M. Burke.
The Missouri Pacific passenger , which
is due hero at 7:00 : in the morning , did
not arrive yesterday unll 10 o'clock Itjwas
delayed an hour and a half at Port
Itoyul , a station near Atchison , Kas. , by
a freight train which was oil' the track.
When it reached the western limit of the
Union Pttcilic yards it was subjected to a
delay of thirty minutes more by a freight
train which , in turn , was endeavoring to
got along to business.
Yesterday tlio biggest inflow of
cars from all stilus to the Union Pacilio
yards that has taken place in some time
attracted the attention of everybody
about the Union Paoilio depot. Every
track in the latter except those on which
No. and the Missouri Pacilio stand was
filled with freight cars , reaching from
Tenth to the viaduct at Seventh , street.
To thn west of Tenth street tlio tracks wore
filled in about the same man
ner. It seemed almost impossible
to find a way through them.
This tiling was the cause of a couple
of blockades , The Grand Island was
shelved out on the double track until No.
3 loft , and then had to take another rest
because of the intervention of a freight
which slowly ( mailed out of its way. The
Missouri Piicillo also was compelled to
wait about half an hour a short distance
out to enable another freight to get out
of its way. This number of cars argues
a wonderful increase in the business of
the yard as it certainly does also the insufficiency -
sufficiency of the accommodations at the
yards for a satisfactory handling of the

The Smelting Works Men nnd Their
Severe Tnnlc Master.
The laborers at the smelting works for
some time baoK have seriously objected
to the harsh treatment to whioh they
have been subjected by ono of the bosses
ut that placo. It is claimed that when
there Las tfcon sickness in a man's fam
ily , which suggested the latter to ask for
a day's lay oil' , the answer of the boss
would be , in substance , that a lay-off
would result hi another man's taking the
absentee's position. If a laborer felt
tired nnd thought a rest of a few days
would bo of bonotit to him , ho lacked the
courage lo ask for it , became , it is said ,
lie know it would bo refused. It
is ulso stated that there .have
been oases where men , in whoso
families deutiXJiiul taken plaify UftYC been
granted scarcely the Hnm no 'dcd to bury
their relatives before they were expected
to return to work. The men bore with
this treatment until recently , when a
committteo laid the fuels before Mr. Bar
ton , ono of the proprietors , who , it is
said , became indignant at the recital and
promised that the state of ntl'airs should
bo remedied at once. The relief has
come , but it is said thn matter is still to
receive some attention Irom the Knights
of Labor.

The Union 1'acilio are erecting the
walls of the new railroad bridge at Thir
teenth street to take place of the old one.
which rested upon walls which impeded
progress on the streets. The new walls
are built on cither side and are placed on
the curb lino. They are being built of n
broad , hard stone of ample dimensions
to make them stand for many years.
The old walls extended but a few feet on
cither side of the bridge , but the now
ones will reach from the north end of the
support of the B. & M. bridge to Lcavon-
worth street nearly fifty foot further.
This will enable the Union Pacific
to build five or six tracks across
the street and make the bridge a part of
the yards , thus giving it ample accommo
dation for the increase of jts business for
many years. That such is the present
intent of tlio company is shown by Iho
grading it is doing immudiately west of
the storehouses ot its coal department , as
also by the increased space which it has
provided for under the viaduct at Six-
tc'cnth street.

Colonel Chase Wants to Know
Whether He Was Legally
Messrs. Bloom and Thurston , law
yers , appeared before Judge Wakclcy
yesterday afternoon to argue a law-point
brought up by ex-Mayor C. S. Chase ,

salary , which would have accrued to him ,
had ho remained in ollieo to the end of
his term. Ho claims that the coun
cil had no right to impeach or
oust him , on the charges of bribery , and
this important point Judge Wakeley will
bo called upon to decide. Mr. Bloom
spoke for half an hour and was followed
by Judge Thurston. Chase claims $1)00 )

New York Evening Pose : On the ton
floor of a high bricK building , vthich
fronts one ot the largest squares in this
city , Is the studio of an etcher whoso
name on an artist's proof is a sure guar
antee that the subject is worthy a place
in any salon , There is something char
acteristic in the homo of every artist ;
something which enables even a casual
observer to classify its occupant at onco.
So tno first glance at the room in ques-
"tion leaves no doubt in the mind of a vis
itor that it is inhabited by a man devoted
to art. The hard-wood floor is covered
with rugs- , the walls are lined with unframed -
framed pictures and piaster of paris
models- , the panels of the doors and the
larger pieces of furniture are decorated
to correspond , and In the centre of all
stands the easol.
It is to bo observed , however , that the
easel docs not occupy the principal place
in the i-oom. JuducU , it may b sjjid that
this alone constitutes the chief difference
in the pencnil appearance , between a
painter's and an etcher's studio. Thn
pAlnter executes his work on a piece o
canvas , stretched over a frame and placet
on an easel. The etcher does his work
on a heavy copper plnte , placed flat on
the top of a table. Near at hand are a
set of sharp-pointed sleel tools , etching
ground , spirit lamp , a twisted lump ol
"wall-wax , " burnisher and roller.
On a certain rainy night the writer was
seated in a comfortable chair in this
studio. Crackers , eheeso and beer , un
failing accompaniments of an artisl's
quarters , occupied a < 'on pieuous plaeo
on a heavy oak table. The air had begun
to turn blue with smoke from the pipes ,
when the etcher , to answer the innumer
able questions which had been asked
said :
"Let me give you in a connected story
the history of an etching from the time
the copper pinto is placed in position for
work until It leaves the hands of the
printer. In the tirst place , the copper
plate is thoroughly washed with turpen
tine , or better , with ben/.ino , for the
former is a little too thin. This is to re-
movs any grease. The plato is then
heated , commonly by burning under it
heavy etching paper , or , if tlio plato is n
largo one , by a spirit lamp. It is heated
to sueli a temperature that water will roll
oil'in globules. When the plate is sulll-
cientlp heated n preparation known us
'etching ground1 is applied. This is a
composition which conies prepared in
the shape of a round ball , about the si/.o
of a black walnut , and is made of
aiplialttim , becs\vax and oil lavender.
This composition is carefully tied u in
silk , nnd through this silk the etching
ground ooxes on to the plate , where it is
laid with a roller. After the ground is
nupllud and has sullieiently cooled it is
smoked , in order to give the etcher a
black surface on which to work. The
smoking is done with a twined wax
taper , candles , or in laet with any sub
stance which will produce the desired
eilect. When the plato is cold the ground
is porfceilv < iiard. So much for the first
part of tlio proees , that of preparing the
"The etcher is now ready for work in
earnest. Ho takes a drawing , which , of
course , may bo original or a copy , and
etches its fac-similo on the plate before
him. It' lie wishes to take special pains
with his subject , which isusually the case ,
ho does not copy the drawing direct ly on
the plate , but takes an intermediate step.
Over his drawing ho fastens a porloetly
hard transparent irclatine composition ,
and with his etching point etches thn
drawing on this , exactly on the principle
of the transparent slate of our nursery
days. The gelatine plato is removed , and
m-esents a rough and scratched surface.
It is lightly scraped , but so lightly that ,
the indented lines arc not disturbed or
clhiccd. These ILnis are tilled with red
chalk. The gelatine plate is then re
versed and placctl on the etching ground
of the copper plate. A burnisher is ap
plied , which transfers the chalk lo the
etcher's lorm or upon the plate. Thus
the etcher has a perfect outline of the
drawing on the plate on which he is to
work. In this way he is guided in his
task , anil his work is expedited.
"Tho etcher now begins to use the tools
of liis trade , each of which is known as
an 'etching point. ' With these instru
ments the .subject is again etched , this
time on the etcher's ground. AVhcro the
etcher wishes lo obtain the darkest
effects fewer liniics are cctchcd and are
made further apartto able ilicm to
stand a longer uite' by Jthe acid. Of
course the acid oitcs into the copper
plate only where the etching point has
stretched through the etcher's ground to
the original copper plato. If the plate on
which the artist is at work is a small one ,
it is placed in a pan and the acid is then
poured on. If , however , it is a large one ,
there is put around the edge of the plato
what is known as a'frame of wall-wax,1
in one corner of wHch is placed a spout
for convenience in pouring oil' the acid.
The first application of the acid is weak.
It bites clean and delicately. It leaves
the sky lines , the distance lines , and , iu
general , the lighter part of the picture.
After these lines are bitten the acid is
poured oil' , and tlio ground washed with
water. Then tlie parts which the artist
docs not wish to have longer acted upon
by the acid are covered with a 'stoppinir-
ont' varnish. The next application of
the acid is stronger , in order to obtain
the heavier effects. So the artist con
tinues stopping-out ono place after an
other until the plato is sumeiently bitten ,
and until he has reached the foreground.
When the entire plato has been suffi
ciently bitten , or , in other words , when
the picture has been etched into the cop
per plato by means of the acid , the wax
wall is removed and the plato thoroughly
cleaned with licn/.inn. Now ho can go to
the printer and sec what he has. If some
of tlio lines prove too heavy , a little in
strument known as the burnisher will re
duce them. The lines can oven bo run
out entirely. If the lines arc not strong
enough , a'now rebiting ground can bo
put on whenever desired and the changes
"When the last touches have boon com
pleted tiie plato is sant to tlio publishers.
The publishers send it to an elcctrotyper
to have a steel face put on. This is ilono
to protect the plato , which would other
wise soon bo worn out on the press. Tlio
operation of elcctrotyping the plato is so
delicately done that when steeled the pic
ture which it prints could not bo distin
guished from the picture printed before
the operation by the original copper
plato. Tlio finest jincs arc coated lines
which are hardly visible to the naked eye
ami which originally have the appear
ance of a hair.
"Tho beauties of etching are explained
in many ways. I tliink , however , that its
special adaptation in the hands of an
artist is to enable him lo give to the pub
lic , not lo ono person , something of liis
individual work , something which hns
the charm of a sketch , yet which can bo
produced to any extent. For instance ,
an artist sketches a landscape. It is im
possible for more than one person to own
that piece of work , that is , thorn is but
ono copy ; there can possibly bo Out ono.
Now tlio etching enables tlio artist to give
his sketch to the public in just the. mood
in which it was made. For , instead of
making it on paper or canvas , ho has
made it on a copper plato , from which it
can bo indefinitely multiplied. "
