Dining with Victoria.
Dining : with the queen is a great honor. Of
course , full court dress must DO worn by the
ladles ; the gentlemen cither wear their court
dress or the Windsor uniform , which is really
an ordinary dress coat , faced and cuffed with
red silk , and adorned with gilt buttons in
stead of the ordinary black ones.
The guests assemble beforehand In a wait
ing-room ; at Balmoral this is called tbo ante
room , but at Windsor the grand corridor is
used for this purpose. They range thorn-
selves ia two rows , says The Lady , the ladies
on ouo side and the gentlemen on the other ,
and the persons of higher rank are placed
furthest from the door at which tbo queea
will enter. About 0 o'clock the queen ap
pears , and ivhen she has received the salu
tations of her guests she passes down be
tween the two rows to the door of tbo state
dining-room , and goes straight la to dinner.
Thu guests Join in couples and follow hor.
During dinner there Is very little talking.
Tbo guests converse among themselves in
whispers , for it is not according to etiquette
to spcah loud. From tlrao to tiino the queen
speaks to some ono of hfjrj guests ; hut as it is
not proper to disagree "with her. there is
naturally not very inucji.dono In the way ot
conversation between her majesty and her
subjects. Dinner usually1 lasts for an hour
or so , after which the whole party adjourns
to the drawing-room. Here the queen makes
n few remarks to caoh guest In turn , which
the latter reply to sultaWy , and without the
smallest rnco of originautv.
This ended , the queen retires to her private
apartments and tbo diua'er party is ended. It
must bo added , however' , ' ' that dull as these
entertainments are , thehVis not a single per
son wno would BonouBlipwish never to bo
present at ono , for an Invitation to dine atone

An Artist's Tribute to the Notable Works
in the Omaha Exhibit.
John Slulvanr Writes of tha Good ,
Bad , Indifferent and Glorious
Canvasses In the Steele
On Saturday , the 22d inst. , the most re
markable exhibition of paintings that has
ever boon opened to the public west of the
Missouri' river invited the attention of the
citizens of Omaha. It Is nn exhibition
voluminous In numbers and supreme in ex
cellence , with a few exceptions. The building
selected for the exhibition , at Thirteenth nud
Harnoy streets , is probably the best that
could bo obtained for the purpose in Omaha ,
and yet is the worst for that purpose. It was
built nnd used for a wholesale grocery house
for many years , nnd It has In every part not
merely the suggestion but the grime of com
mercial uso. Countless packages of gro
ceries that have left their stain everywhere
had passed through its portals , and the ghost
like cdlllco seemed doomed to silence and its
memory of grease.
The rubbing of Aladdin's lamp , however ,
transformed it into a palace of artistic won
der , nnd the chaos of groceries and troubles
of our daily existence are forgotten in bric-a-
brac , good , bad , indifferent nnd plorlous can
vases , as we wander for hours through this
improvised Aladdin's palace.
The canvases of great sUe in this remark
able exhibition , and which command the vis
itor's first attention from the color blotches
and historic poetical composition , are the
copies of Gustuv pore's masterly originals ,
now fn the Dore gallery in Now Bond street ,
London *
Jesus , the simple and beautiful character ,
has been tbo theme for ages ; the great poets ,
the great painters , the great sculptors of iho
past have been Inspired to do their greatest
work by their faith iu the simple and God-
llko Christ , Mighty cathedrals , whoso spires
reach heavenward with their inllnito wealth
of tracery , sprung , ai 'twere , from earth ,
through the belief of man that Christ was
the S on of God. The organ was Invented as
nn aid to worship , and the greatest composers
of the modern ago wrote their holiest oratorios
tories and soul-thrilling masses for those won
derful edifices. The world was thrilled into
a profound bcltof , through tongue und pen.
through paint and stone , that this Inspired
personage was none other than the Son of
This great central figure In the world's his
tory was crucified , as wo all know , hut oven
Calvary did not witness such a crucillctlon of
Jesus as these canvasses exhibit. Tbo draw
ing of the head of what they cull Christ in ouo
of these pictures is monstrusly bad , Tbo
"Christ Before Pilato" in Mnncackzy's great
picture is the Christ of history , of calm tre
mendous force , but thcso beostlv copies of
Doro's masterpieces present Christ to us as a
personage without force nnd us ono who
could only have sustained 11 fo by suction for
the malformation in drawing precludes the
idea that ho oven could have eaten as other
There are n few other wretchedly drawn
and badly painted canvases presented In this
collection , with splendidly /painted trom.s
sandwiched butwcen them. Instinctively ,
however , the visitors to the gallery are

This picture of Moore's is moro darlriR in
technique , stronger and bolder in color than
' " of
ncuugorcau's masterly "Awakening
Sprint ? , " tender anil exquisitely pure in flesh
tones , brilliant in the draperies of the figures
nnd such knowledge of tlelicnto pearl
shading in the half tones that only tlio eye
of taste nud the finest feeling for color could
have painted the matchless background and
cleverly painted accessories are something to
ho remembered hy painters who would emu
late this study of harmonious color.
Alongside to the loft is a little sunset with
out a number , but bearing the signature :

It should bo owned in Omaha. Ncsn' thiso
masterpieces hangs a pretentious Brldgninn ,
353 , entitled "Famines d'AlKiors au Cinie-
tnlno. " which la remarkable for its serious
laclc of study. Though containing light ,
good composition and breadth of treatment ,
tbo Hosh is shaky , hard , and the drawing of
lingers and toes shows a carelessness that is
not excusable in comparison with other woiks
of his in this collection. IkidKmaii Is a noted
American painter , living in Paris , who was a
pupil of Gcroino and has distinguished lihn-
self only as an apt absorber of that great
painter's style of composition and manner
isms , without ono .scintilla of his genius.
In contrast with No. ! ! (58 ( may DO mentioned
340 , the boy of Constantine receiving guests ,
another picture by tbo sumo painter , which
in all respects is very beautiful iu composi
tion , neatly and clofj.Mitly drawn , charmingly
lighted , with admirable perspective , full of
architectural detail and altogether a work
quite worthy of Gorome.
Hero is Van Mark. No , 187 , "Cattle , " a
wonderfully clever picture , with all his
strength , breadth and massive painting cat
tle that live and without the conventional
composition which all tha cattle painters of
England und their American imitators hare
adopted nnd established as n rule in this line
of painting. The simplicity in composition of
this picture shows what u ducp thinker
this great cattle painter Is. The drawing ,
foreshortening ana painting of thcso cattle
are , if that wore possible , bevond anything
wnich Van Mark has over done. Scattered
through the background are a few groups of
cattle nnd a few masterly touches of light
and color that thoroughly sustain the groups
in the foreground. The landscape is wet , the
sky somewhat stormy nnd yet the scrubby
trees are cut in so sharply against the clouds
nnd sky that they do not Iwlong to the wet
landscape or the cloudy sky. 11 is nn artist's
trick to throw in sharp touches llko thcso
distant trees for effect and sometimes to
strengthen a foreground , hut air should al
ways permeate the landscape of the artist , as
it does the landscape of nature.
No. 218 reveals a George Washington.

Mr. Washington is a close copyist of
Bchrcyoi * and atTccts his style as iJildgman
does tnat of Ooroino. They are not living
very far apart in Paris , This picture Is very
leasing iu color , but lacking in that Him
§ rawing and intelligent modeling whlcli
make Schroyer's canvases almost priceless ,
and shows the painter George Washington
to bo as far removed from the artist whom
ho Imitates as ho is chronologically from the

Leon 1'crrault's ' 'Mother ' Wntchlng Her

In absence of number it arrests the attention
of every visitor who ascends the
stairs. .livery sturdy father , every tender
loving mother will halt and stand in fervent
ndtnlmtiun before the theme of motlicr-lovo
painted on thin The painting and
drawing of this picture need no criticism
from anyone. The artist has so pointed this
work that the child Is In a semi-transparent
shade and the mother , with table , window
sill nud flowers nro in full light so deftly In
woven as hardly to bo noticed by the casual
observers. Fathers nud mothers of Omaha
fihould sco this excellent picture , with other *

n poem _ , the mother is devotion personified.
Bierstaitt has painted a few very Hue can
vases. His "Yosomlto "Valloy" was , artisti
cally , the greatest liu hns painted. It had
breadth of handling nnd strong , glorious
color. It was full of nntuio und a delightful
iioom. His "Last of the UufTnlo , " u con-
tralUcd ilurc | In this collection , Is one of Its
most remarkable features. Not from the
standpoint of the grcitcst painting , but bo-
r.iuso tnere are so few American artists of-
the higher class who huvc painted distinc
tively American subjects. And ho who at
tempts anything of na ambitious character Iu
that lluld and paints it in a way com *
moiiKimxto with the elements of great art
should be commended to his countrymen and
sustained by voice und pen. Not from the
fuct that ho is sin American , hut becnuso
ho can produce r. work ivitli ideas und poctio

'This picture Is called "Tho Lust of the
Buffalo , " nnd yet there nro counties' ' ! thou

the hiize of distance. The drumntlu ele
ment of the work H n rniniunt stood holng

rider is iu tha act of spearing his gumc.
Tbore is great and picturesque power in this
croup. Ko ono who lookn at the picture can
have any doubt as to the outcome of tliu en

the horns of the bull , nud the noble creature
