\Vr.9T POINT , N. Y Juno 12. [ Special to
'Jnu llnn.J In connection with the presenta
tion by Mr. George W. Cbllds of the three
portraits of Grant , Sherman nnd Sheridan ,
to the United States military academy , Major
iTohn M. Carson , Washington correspondent
of the Philadelphia Ledger , who represents
Mr. Childn , furnished Titr.Ur.ueorrespondent
the following Interesting history !
The creation of Iho portraits of Generals
Grant , Sherman and Sheridan , to bo hung in
t ho cndot moss hall now known as Grant
lmll ut the United Suites military academy ,
West Point , was begun about throe years ago.
'jho original purpose was confined to n portrait
trait of Grant. The portraits of Sherman
and Sheridan sprang from this purpose , and ,
consldcring ho relations of Mr. Gcorgo W.
Childs. to whoso patriotism nnd liberality
the military academy Is indebted for these
portraits , with those three military chief-
taiiiB , the Sherman and Sheridan paintings
were nn easy nnd logical outgrowth. The
scheme from which these three valuable
paintings cmcnutcd was evolved from u com
paratively unlmportan Incident. About four
years > ngo , with that skill and ingenuity
which has. made him famous in the manage
ment of the cadet uie&s , Captain William P.
Spurgin , treasurer nnd commissary of ca
dets , succeeded in giving the mess hall n
now floor nnd having its walls brightened
with fresh fresco.
Captain Spurgin next conceived the idea of
making the hall still moro attractive by hang
ing pictures and portraits upon the walls.
When these were hung in the mess hall n
new Idea -was suggested to Captain Spurgin ,
nnd ho concluded thnt it would bo most ap
jiropriatii to collect for the hail portraits nnd
photographs of the distinguished graduates
of the academy. It was naturally thought
tnnt the dally presence with the cadets of
these exemplars of the academy could not
fall to exercise a wholesome Influence upon
the corps. They would furnish cadets , when
nt meals , suggestions for thought and con
versation , nnd those who occupied seats at
tables once occupied by Grant , Sherman ,
Sheridan , Thomas , Mcado and other emi
nent graduates , ns they looked Upon the portraits
traits , would bo encouraged to emulate the
lives of these great chieftains. In addition
to this , it was thought that such a gallery
might bo collected through relatives and
friends , without expense to the government
or the academy.
During ono of my periodical visits to the
n c.i do my Captain Spurgin outlined bis
scheme , nnd said ho would like to obtain n
good picture of General Grunt. It was sug
gested that Mr. George W. Childs had sev
eral good largo-sized photographs of Grant ,
nnd would doubtless bo glad to contribute
ono of them for this use. Captain Spurgin
wrote Mr. Childs , who agreed to comply with
the request made. Shortly thereafter Mr.
Childs mentioned this mutter to Mrs. U. b.
Grant , who said that she would like , above
nil things , to have a good likeness of the
general at the military academy , for which
no always entertained a feeling of admira
tion and love. Some years prior to this Mr.
Childs had Loutzo , who painted "Westward
the Course of Empire'1 upon the wall
of the west stairway to the gallery of
the house of representatives , paint a poi trait
of General Grant , and suggested that
the Loutzo painting bo appropriated for the
cadet moss hall. The Leut70 portrait was
nov liked by Mrs. Grant , and she did not ,
therefore , care to have it used for this pur
pose. Mr. Childs then said he would hnvo a
portrait of the general made for West Point ,
from uny picture ) Mrs. Grant might select.
The photograph maUo by Gutekunst , of Phil-
udolphm , in lb ( > 5 , wns selected by Airs. Grant ,
nnd Mrs. Darrugh , of Philadelphia , was
commissioned to paint a portrait from it.
The general stood for this photograph , and
it is regarded by his family and most inti
mate friends ns the most correct likeness of
the general , as ho appeared nt tlio close ol
the war. When the photograph was taken
General Grant were upon his left arm a
badge of mourning for President Lin
coln. This emblem of mourning does
not appear in the painting.
To many of those who knew
General Grant after ho became president ,
the Uarragh portrait Is not considered good ,
but by the family of the gonoval , and those
fvlio were intimate with bun during and Im-
iiu'diatoly after the war , it is regarded as a
faithful likeness and nn excellent portrait.
It was sent to the academy In May , 1887 , and
hung on the north wall of the cadet mess
hull. General Merritt , "in honor of the
great graduate of the academy , whoso portrait
trait , a present to the academy from Mr.
George W. Childs , sanctifies the hall as n
gallery for the portraits of graduates , "
Issued an order directing that thcrcuf tor the
cndot din Ing-hull should bo known olllclally
ns "Grant hull. "
In June , 1857 , n few days after the Grant
'portrait had been hung , Mr. Guilds visited
the military academy as n member of the
board of visitors , upon which occasion I
accompanied him. General Sheridan also
visited the academy at that tiuiu in nis olll-
olal capacity as lioutonunt-goueral com
manding the army , and it proved to bo his
last visit to the institution. In company
with Mr. Childs , General Sheridan visited
the dining hall to inspect the Grant pprtiait ,
und during this inspection Mr. Cliilils said to
the General , iu his quick but cticerfut man
ner in conversation , "General , if I outlive
you I will Imvo your portrait painted und
Lung there beside that of Grant. "
Sheridan responded : "Mr. Childs. if you
Intend to hnvo painted a portrait of me 1
would llko to sou it before It is hung In this
hall. "
"All right , " said Mr. Childsj "you shall
lee it. I would prefer to have you painted
'while living. "
After further conversation about the
Grunt portrait , thu two gentlemen loft the
hall and walked to the house of the superin
tendent , General Merritt , at which Sheridan
was a guest. Mr. Childs proceeded to the
West Point hotel , Sheridan arrived ut the
Point that morning , and was to review the
borps of cadota In the afternoon , and , as it
was near the hour lixcd for thu paradu when
General Merritt's IIOUBO was reached , hu
ivcnt directly to lib room to don his uniform ,
While thus engaged ho sent u mcssagn to
Mr. Childs. asking that gentleman to join
him before "parade , " and , nt the same
time , Invited the board of visitors , through
dr. Chillis , who WUH president of the board ,
o attend him during the ceremonies of
inrudu and review.
When Mr. Childs joined the general on
liu porch o ! the superintendent's house , the
utter said : "Mr. Childs , while putting on
ny uniform. I could not help musing about
lur conversation In the moss hall , If you
ire iu earnest about painting my portrait for
iho academy , I want to bo painted from
4fo. "
"I am la earnest , " replied Mr. Childs.
"Tlut portrait Hhall bo painted , upon one
condition It must please Mrs. Shorldon. 1
think It would bo n good Idea to paint Sher
man also , and to bung him on the onu stdo of
lirant and you on the other , "
( " 4'hut certainly would be a generous net
upon your part , " said Sheridan , "and one
tvhloli would bo appreciated by Sherman nnd
myself. I would rather have you do this
lervlce than uny other man , because no man
uould do it with so much propriety , The
rnlatlousi between Grant nnd you wore
bound by strong tics of mutual affections.
Those bctnccn you , Sherman and myself
have been most intimate. We have all been
k'tiests nt the same tlmo , and many times , at
your house. You have como to know us
Letter than other men know us. Giant ,
Fhcrman und myself were closely connected
with the suppression of thu rebellion ,
United thus In our lives , we should be
placed together IUUT. returned ns it were to
the academy from which wo started out in
the nmrnlng of life as second lieutenants.
A cclutcd as you have uecu with us , you
uro the very man to keep us united uftci
"All rfcht , general , " said Mr. Childs ,
"Tim portraits shall bo painted und bung In
MIV.S hall. Now select your artist. "
When Mr. Childs spoke to General Shcri
dan In thn incus hall about painting his portrait
trait , thu latter did not think that Mr. Chllda
wua eriou . I happen to know that Mr ,
Chlhls formed thn determination to add the
furtruitv of bhorumu and Uburldan to hit
contribution before"hU visit to the -ncndomy.
I Informed General ShoHdan of this fact
upon1 hl return to Washington' from West
Point during n eonvirsfitlon in which ho re
lated to mo what I have stated touching his
conversation with Mr. Childs nt the acad
emy , nnd also the conversation between
Childs , Sheridan and Sherman in relation to
paintlngn portrait of the last named.
Shortly after the conversation between
Childs and Sheridan , on the porch of the
superintendent's house , tno batlalllon was
formed on the parade ground. General
Sheridan , accompanied by the superinten
dent nnd stall ami the board of visitors , had
passed down the front tuid up the roar of the
battallion , with its well nllgnod nnd rigid
ranks , In which ho had once stood as a cad ot ,
and had taken his plnco at the point desig
nated Jor the roviowlhe ofiiecr , when Gen
eral Sherman rode up from Cranston's hotel ,
located about n mile ttouth of the reserva
tion , Sherman remained in his carriage ,
which was drawn up In front of the parade
ground nnd In n line directly in rear of the
reviewing officer. As the corns passed In
common , nnd subsequently In double time ,
Sherman stood up and watched ,
with old-timo eagerness nnd pride ,
the columns of gray -and White until they
wheeled Into n faultless' line , tendered the
final snluto to the reviewing oftlcor , hoard
the cadet adjutant announce "parade is dls- '
missed , " nnd saw the companies move , to ,
lively music , to the cadet barracks. Then ho
nllghtcdJ'rom the carriage , pushed through
the crowd thnt always fringes the parade
ground upon occasions of put-ado and review ,
end Joined Sheridan and the other oillclals
who still lingered on the gtouud. When the
usual salutations nnd Introductions had been
concluded , Sheridan drew Sherman ana
Childs apart from crowd nnd s-ild : "Sher
man , Mr. Childs Informs mo that ho intends
to have portraits of you nnd mo
painted , to hang bosldo thnt of Gen
eral Grant In the mess hall. Ho pro
posed to wait until wo die , out I Insisted that
the paintings bo made before wo die , so we
may sea how the artist executes us. lie has
agreed to do this , and I told him ho is the ono
man who can and should do it. "
Sherman expressed great gratification with
this. "Childs , " salil ho , "that Is n good Idea.
1 think it will'bo admitted , and I can say it
without suspicion of egotism , that Grant ,
Sheridan and myself were the three central
military figures of the war , and I would lllro
that wo should go down to posterity together.
Besides , I agree with Sheridan that the
schema can bo better , nnd with greater pro
priety , carried out by you than Dy nny other
mnn. "
"Well , It is nil understood nnd settled , "
said Mr. Chilas. "I have told Sheridan to
select his artist , and I now repeat that order
to you. "
When it was publlclv announced that Mr.
Clillds was to have three portraits pamtou
the two generals were overrun with letters
from nrtists soliciting the -work. In Sheri
dan's case the applications were so numer
ous as to become annoying , and upon his re
quest n paragraph was published in the news
papers announcing that ho had selected an
artist. It was Mr. Childs' desire to huvo the
portraits finished in Llmu for the annual com
mencement jn Juno , 1SSS , und by his direction
I several times urged Sheridan to select an
nrtist and huvo the work begun. This was
not nn easy matter for him to do , but ho finally
succeeded in finding an urtlst in Now York
with whom bo partially arranged to paint
his portrait. In the meantime he sent to
Mr. Childs a largo photograph , taken about
the time ho left Chicago to succeed Sherman
in command of the army. It shows the
general in the full uniform of his rank , and
was his favorite picture. Supposing , upon
receipt of the photograph , that the general
intended that he should select an artist , Mr.
Childs commissioned Mrs. Darragh to paint
the portrait , and she proceeded with the pre
liminary work , using the photograph referred
to. Some time thereafter I received a letter
from Mr. Childs informing mo that Mrs.
Darragh would visit Washington to consult
General Shoridun about giving her "sit
tings , " und requesting mu to urrungo with
the general for an interview. Ho was very
much displeased upon being informed of the
selection of Mrs. Darragh , and declared , with
an exhibition of temper , that ho would not
sco her. He did not believe u woman could
paint a man's portrait. Finally ho cooled
down and sala the woman should have a fair
chance. Upon her arrival in Washington I
accompimed Mrs. Darragh to the war de
partment and presented her to tho. general.
The lady went to the department with four
nnd trembling. She had been informed
that Sheridan was not pleased with
her selection , that he was n choleric , ill-
mannered man , and she therefore imagined
that ho would bo frigid , turbulent and dis
agreeable. I assured the lady that she had
been given n wrong impression ubout Sheri
dan that ho was quiet nnd gentlemanly in
deportment , nnd that sno woula bo given n
kind recaption and respectful hearing. It
was plain , however , that she was not im
pressed witli iny estimate of the general ,
and entered his ofllco with nervous appre
hension , which sbo vainly strove to conceal.
The general received Mrs. Darragh with the
utmost kindness. A cadet of the Urst-class
could not have exhibited greater suavity.
The lady was made to fool ut perfect case.
After considerable talk about the work in
hand , Sheridan said to Mrs. Darragh : "I
have an idea that you artists got your own
individuality into your worlr. I have been
painted by artists of several nationalities ,
but never by n woman. The Italian artist
made mo look like n brigand ; the
Frenchman made mo resemble Psnpoloon ,
between whom and myself there is no physt-
* cal resemblance , except perhaps , in height ;
the Spaniard made mo look'liko two orthieo
Mexican generals whom I have met. Now ,
madame , " ho continued , with n twinkle in
his eye. and u smile that illuminated his
bronzed features , " 1 am confident you will
make n peed picture , but I bog you will not
make mo look like n woman. "
Airs. Durragh brought her canvas to Wash
ington , where the general gave her several
sittings. Ho saw the portrait completed in
every detail except the sabre , and was well
pleased with It. A few weeks prior to nis fatal
sickness ho sent for mo , and
after a general talk about the portrait ,
which I had recently seen while visiting
Philadelphia , said ho desired to have the
old sabre which ho carried through the war
painted In the picture , and he related to me
its history. The scabbard is covered on both
sides with the names of thu engagements in
which the general participated , and thuir
dates. The original scabbard , however , had
to bo discarded during the war on account of
injuries icceiveil iu action. It had been
struck several times by musket balls , und
bruised in three or four places by being
kicked or trampled by horses. Finally a
new scabbard had to bo procured , and this
shows signs of hard usage , I hud the sabro
forwarded to Mr. Childs. After ho was
struck down by dlseaso , and before his re
moval from Washington to Nonqultt , the
general sent mo nn inquiry about the sabro
and received the assurance that it was In
Mr , ( Jliilds1 uossossloii and would bu care
fully guarded. Its next arid final duty waste
to rest upon Sheridan's coffin. After his
death the artist changed the uniform In the
portrait ftom that of lieutenant cenerul to
that of general , to which rank ho succeeded
by ant of congress while on his death bed ,
The same artist was selected to paint
Sherman , but when finished members of the
general's family expressed n desire to have
the portrait made to represent bun as ho
looked fifteen years ago. The general
yielded to this desire , and the artist changed
the face , using for a culdo the portrait of
Sherman by Iluntington , which now hangs
in the war department , and which General
Sherman regards as the bast portrait over
made of him , in which judgment Mrs. Sher
man and the family concurred.

Graduating EvcrolRpH nt the Deaf-
Mute Institute.
The first graduating exorcises over held at
the Nebraska Institute fdr the deaf luul
dumb took plnco yesterday nfternoon in the
chapel of the institute under the Immediate
supervision of Superintendent Glllospfo. The
novelty of the exercises was sufllclent lo nt-
truct n very largo number of people from the
city , nnd by the tlmo for the opening of tlm
progrnmmo there was not n vacant seat In
the hall. Thu commodious apartments In
which the exercises took place were attrac
tively decorated with flowers nnd ovorgrcen ,
nnd over the stage , wrought from smtlux nnd
white blossoms , were the words : "A Silence
thnt Speaks. "
The afternoon's programme opened with a
prayer by Hov. Millon , after which n quar
tette rendered the "Indian Summer Tlmo"
In good stylo.
Miss Etta Stownrt , of South Omaha , ono
of the eraduatos , followed with an essay on
"Evolution , " which she spoke , while her
teacher. Miss Taylor , simultaneously deliv
ered it in the sign language , Miss Stewart
was attired in the regulation "sweet girl
graduate" costume , snowy mull , with a
cluster of roses at her throat nml In lior
hair. She is n very attractive girl , nnd
spoke her pleeo With a considerable display
ot oratorical ubllity , although her articula
tion and enunciation were indistinct and
Miss Stewart hold that man's physical
development and mental power clearly prove
thnt ho is not n development , but a creation.
Wo must , therefore , accent the ac
count which says the Divine Hut
went forth nt the creation of llfo ,
nnd by its development the world was cov
ered with living things , nnu prepared for
man's habitation. Then again \vont forth
the Divine flat , and man was made In the
Imago of his Creator and in him the Creator
breathed n part of his llfo. In nil lifo some
part of God exists. This breath tnut God
breathed into man Is the boul , which alone
stamps man ns a special creation , and by
which a man Is able to know , reverence and
love his Creator.
The dialogue , "Souvenirs of Institute
Home , " by ono of the sign classes , consis
ting of live boys nnd two girls , was an inter
esting exhibition of the thoroughness of the
system of instruction used nt thin institution.
Mr. Mosloy , the tencncr , would ask each
member of the class certain questions , which
they would promptly answer by means of
manual signs and nrtlelos , and In a way al
most ns ofllcaoious ns they could have done
It blessed with the power of speech.
Nine young ladies , radiant In white robes
nnd llowors , sang tno dear old "Swnneo
Hiver'1 by sign , while Miss Heed presided nt
the nlano and carried the air hi a very sweet
soprano voice. This singing by sign Is ono
of the most curious of nil tne mutes' accom
plishments ; the denoting of the rise nnd fall
of the human voice , nil its inflections nnd deflections -
flections , its pealing sounds and dying ca
dences , by graceful waves ot the hnnus and
facial expression , is something that must bo
seen to bo comprehended or'nppreclated.
Miss Lucy Buttrick , another of the gradu
ates , from Mound City , read her essay ,
"When My Ship Comes In , " in the sign
language , being n mute. At the same time
Prof. Taylor read the composition , timing
his words to the graceful gesticulations and
motions of the fair girl upon the platform.
The closing paragraph of the essay was in
substance something us follows :
"Not at home could I sit "waiting for my
ship to come in , but with mv hand on the
helm of the staunch little craft I would sail
the sea of life , and over storms , dead calms
and discouragements , Dring my ship through
successfully into port. And all the. bolls of
heaven sha'l ring when my ship comes
bravely In. "
The art work by a class of four girls and
three boys was another Interesting and
amusing feature. The worlc was entitled
"From a Paint Pot to an Artist. " The first
sketched with chalk a paint pot , and the
next improved on this a trifle , and so on
until the end of the class was reached , when
u full-blown artist stood emblazoned on the
board as largo as life and just as natural.
There were several classes in this work , and
in many Instances much skill was displayed ,
reflecting exceeding credit upon the thor
oughness of Dr. Gillespie's curriculum.
The aural nnd oral exorcises wore also of
great interest. The pupils who participated
in these exercises are nil pupils In whom the
faculty of hearing and speech has been de
veloped in the institution , and the progress
made by them is truly remarkable In fact ,
so much has boon accomplished that there
nro hopes thet many of them will become
possessed with the faculties In their fullest
torco in time. While the struggles
of these unfortunates to articulate is gratinir
nnd disagreeable , it shows indisputably what
can bo done by n judicious course of instruc
tion. Many of them who are gradually learn-
leurnlng tn speak , can not hoar. They con
ceive all questions put to them by the teacher
from the motion of his lips alone , and their
readiness , alacrity nnd unerring accuracy In
returning correct answers Is something that
is almost startling.
Myrtle Kistler , a cunning little mimic ,
made a hit with her sign solo , "To See Our
selves ns Others See Us. "
L. A. Divine , a manly young follow from
Ord , nud the third of the graduates , deliv
ered an address upon the "Annexation of
Mexico , " that was well received. Ills vale
dictory , too , was a well worded effort , nnd
nnd merited the vigorous applause it re
In a neat and appropriate little speech to
eachSuperintendent Glllcsnlo made the pre
sentation of tno diplomas , after which there
was moro music and minor exercises , the
day's programme closing with the Lord's
prayer by the entire school.
From the indications ono would judge that
the Institute is in a healthy and flourishing
condition , and that much good is being com
passed by Its able corps of teachers and

McCowoii had for two years previously
noted as corresponding secretary of that
organization , initl for three years preceding -
coding thai as librarian , having in
charge the 1(5,000 ( volumes upon its
shelves. She is one of the best known
and most popular women in a slate fa
mous for its progressive and aspiring
daughters. The range of her industry
and accomplishment would put to the
blush many an ostentatious business
man. Her own profession , in which
bho hits hltrh rank , is Hot enough to sat
isfy her poised and indefatigable spirit.
For rest and recreation bho merely
"changed work. " When her duties ns
a physician tax her strength she turns
to literature , philaiithrophy , or science
as an otTsct. Dr. McC'owen is ot French
extraction , Presbyterian on her father's
bide and Quaker on hot * mother's. She
was born near Cincinnati , and is the
daughter of a physician. Her parents
bolli died when she was young , and she
educated herself for a toaehei1 at a nor
mal school in Ohio , from which she
now has an "A. M. " title. She taught
and studied , studied and taught ,
until she was able and old
enough to become a doctor.
She assumed her o\vn support at si.\-
teen , and became a resident of Iowa in
18(51. ( She took a three years' course in
the medical department of the state
university. Upon her graduation she
was immediately olTered a position on
the medical stall ol the state hospital
for the insane at Mount Pleasant , She
remained there throe years , and then
began private practice , with the deter
mination of making mental diseases ,
especially thoseof her own sex $ , her life
work. Her value in her ulio ou Hold
has been jjoiioroubly recognised. She
has been three times elected to the sec
retaryship of the Scott County Medical
society. At the close of her last term
as secretary she was elected president
of the society , t's ' thing hitherto un
dreamed of in tno'liistpry of the medi
cal world. She is also a member of vari
ous modicai sooiotieb , among them the
New York Medico-Legal society. She
was elected to this in 1851 , when there
were but two other woman members to
100 men. She has been associate edi
tor sineo 1885 of the JoA-a Modicai Re
porter , and a contributor to many of
medical journals , ehiolly on insanity.
In 1888 bho began the ibstio of a little
paper iu connection with the Working
Woman's club , which elub is her espec
ial prhlc. This paper is called Loud a
Hand Echoes , and all the work done
upon it is done within the membership
of the club. The motive throughout is
philanthropic , being the improvement
and encouragement of worldng cirls
and women in Davenport.
In person , Dr. McCowen is said to ro-
soinblo Frances Willard. but the ro-
beniblance is only in the typo. Her
hair lias a tinge of warmth , her eyes
are blue , her tooth oven and white , her
laugh hearty and contagious , hop dit.-
position sunny , her insight keen and
her- will strong.

proverbial ; on her reception days ono
sees baskets of llowors , banks of llowors ,
and vases of llowert. . , so many llowors
that one forgets the hovoro salons and

Carnot. 15y her one is welcomed and
immediately put atcase , and a slight
