Hon which la

R inner circle of society. An a mat-
f fact, aoclety In general knows very
about this Interest! ng woman, ex
cept that she Is an American, la reported
to hava colossal wealth and that about
fifteen months ago she bought Warwick
house, the historic mansion of tha earls
of Warwick, reputed to be one of the
most unhealthy houses In London, with
out ever having gone over It. It seems
her original Intention was to have It re
decorated and made spick and apan and
forthwith open It. When, however, she
Inspected tha mansion she declared it
was necessary practically to pull It to
pieces, which meant an enormous further
outlay. Nothing daunted, she set to work
to find the right people to carry out
her plans, a proceeding which took con
siderable time, for Miss Dodge has Ideas
of her own and determined that the home
of tha "king-maker's" descendants was
to express her views as to what" sha con
tdered a home ahould be.
At last tha mansion is on Its way to
completion and she hopes to have a house
warming there which Is to be tha talk
of the town In the early spring. Miss
Dodge Is, before all thing, a perjonall'y.
a woman who will an.l must be recog
nized. It was MraChoate, the wife of
the late American ambassador, who In
troduced her ao British society and, al
though She Is not yet to be seen at the
gatherlnga which Include royalties, that
Is a recognition which is bound to be ac
corded to' her shortly. London society
and, above all, royalties cannot resist
tha omnipotence of the dollar.
Moat Aaioltloaa Yaakee.
Miss Dodge Is regarded as the most
kmbltlous Yankee who has set foot on

who have failed In the attempt. The wife

who Is an admirer of all original and dar

In Miss Dodge's social future. It she
begins well and can manage to lilt upon
an entertainment which will set people

great American hostesses of the Immediate
Esocatsl af Dae de Pomar.
Floating sround Parisian society Is the
rumor of the engagement of the well
known and very popular Due de Pomar
end Miss Emily Ysnaga, the sister of
Cnnsuelo, duchess of Manchester. So far
I here has been no confirmation of the
statement, but neither has it been contra
d'etrtd. The due Is a very wealthy man, a
lUfle past middle age. He has a magnifi
cent hotel In the Avenue Wagram. a villa
In Nice arid a shooting box In Scotland.
No maA Is better known among the Ameri
can set In Psrls, where ha spends the
greater rt of esch year. For years ha
ur although his title Is not an old one.
It Is a desirable one, and his personal
ihnrm ireunts for much.
Another central figure In the best set In
Paris la the handsome Miss Tsnaga, who
lately has taken a charming apartment
there and makes It her headquarter for
the greater part of the year. Clever, cul
tured and well read. Miss Tsnsga has
been sought after by the elite of Parisian
society. , Uko her sister, Cnnsuelo, ths
duchess of Manchester, the Is a brilliant
and amusing talker, and, like all women
of the day who aspire to be considered
smart, she has a fund of gord stories. Her
friends have always credited her with the
determination never to marry, it being a
well known fact that aha has declined
with thanks some of the most desirable
matrimonial offers both In Englanu and
on the continent. As Due de Pomar has
a great deal of English blood In his veins
if I remember correctly 1:1s mother wss
an English woman the rumored engase
inent Is also arousing much Interest hero.
Mrs. Held Boos tai Society.
"I do not know what we would do with
out Mrs. Held these dull autumn after
noons," is a saying you hear frequently
Just now when so HUIo is going on. There
Is no hostess In London with such an Idea
of her duty towards her own country peo
ple aa Mrs. Reld, and her freojuent after
noon parties are especially welcome at
tha moment. At 4 o'clock the reception
rooms at Dorchester House are a blaze of
light and look delightfully cosy as the
hostess welcomes her Criends. The Rldgly
Carters are always much to the' fore, their
daughter In her Parisian gowns coming In
for a great deal of attention. Kvery cake,
sweet and American drink worthy of men
tion Is to be found fci the refreshment
room, an attention which Is much apprecl.
ated by Mrs. Reld's own compatriots.
From tha typical London "at home"
parties these gatherlnga are as different
aa sunlight and moonlight. At Dorchester
House everyone seems at her ease and In
good humor. There Is nothing of tho stony
star and tha freealng atmosphere of the
London drawing room, wtiera everyone
seems afraid to speak.
Lara-ess Garage la F.malre.
Tha new garage at Floors Castle is now
complete. It Is built of nonlnflammahle
compositions and Is the largest private
structure of Its kind In the kingdom, being
capable of holding 100 cars. Unlike the
"usual garage, (lie duchess Insisted that It
must be of picturesque construction and
had It built as much In keeping with the
castle jtself as possible. It Is lighted by
electricity from the private plant on the
Ths duchess Is a great connoisseur In
cars and orders one of every new make of
any Importance Although she never ap
pears at tho "wheel," she knows everything
there Is to he known about the mechanism
of an automobile. She rarely uses a car
more than three or four months, or less,
with tile result that there are always sev
eral In her garage ready to be disposed of.
These, however, are never sacrificed, the
duchess being, before all things, a business
woman and determined to get the full
worth for anything she is selling.- Her cars
are always especially fitted for her and
have all the latest luxuries. An electrical
heating apparatus Is supplied for her cold
weather cars and an arrangement which
contains Ice is inserted for warm weather
and keeps the car and Its Inmates delight
fully cool on the hottest day.
So enthusiastic a motorist is the duchess
of Roxburghe that she will undertake some
of the longest Journeys by automobile, a
fact which la very trying to the machinery
of her cars, as some of the roads In the
north are by no means what they might be.
Occasionally she motors from Floors Castle
to London. Tills, however, is not often
dorie as It Involves too great an expendi
ture of time and, true to tho Instincts of
her country, she Is usually In a hurry.

FLORENCE, Nov. 28. (Special.) America
plays no small part In the art life ot Flor
ence. To begin with, Mr. Berensen, the
authority on art, baa a villa Just outside
tha city at Ponte a Mensola. Then George
da Forest Brush spends part of his year
in Florence, having there both a villa and
a studio! Tha studio of Hiram Powers may
still be visited and tho Casa Guldl, used
for art exhibits, Is In charge of sn Ameri
can, Mrs. Cobb, wife of the late Arthur
Murray Cobb, tha artist.
To do the Amerlcsn studios one must
seek tha Via del Bard I. thst deep, dark.
narrow old street to which the tourists
flock In search of the house of Romola.
Its houses are really old palaces and their
fronts are washed by the Arno river, over
whose waters they often project fascina
ting little terraces and balconies command
ing views of river, bridges, mountains,
snow capped vsnd violet, of domes, bell
towers and buildings perhaps unequaled lu
beauty In any city of Europe. They an
quite honey-combed by the studios of tho
artists of all nations, who rejoice In a good
north light and find Inspiration In pictur
Stadloe of teakere.
If you, mount the steps of No. 30 you
come to the studios of 'ft lo hard Levicit of
Philadelphia. Ill's Benjamin West, a
Quaker, turned painter. Pass through the
large drawing room with Its huge open
fireplace and artistic furniture and pictures
Into tha studio, rich In the output of a
versatile and gifted artist.
Early this spring there was much to be
seen, for Mr. Levlck was Just ready for his
exhibition which followed In the Casa
Guldl, In particular, of a collection of most
lovely etchings, monotones and black and
white drawings done by a process ot his
own and reproducing much that Is lovely
architecturally In Florence.
Wandering about Mr. Levlck's studio it
Is easy to conclude that he has studied
and traveled In many lands. As a matter
of fact, he began his studies In Dresden.
At the famous Julian studio in Paris he
won prizes and worked under Lefevre and
Cormon. He was, for a time, at the
Academy In Philadelphia, then studied In
London and ended his student life In
Munich. London hung one of his pictures,
the portrait of a peasant of Brittany; on
the line at the Academy. To perfect his art
Mr. Levlck wandered from land to land,
living for a year In Morocco and consorting
with Arabs, a year which has borne most
excellent fruit In his paintings and sketches
of that country, charming In color and
poetic In sentiment. Norway claimed him
also, as well as Holland, Germany, Franco
America Place ta Grow V.
In spite of bis cosmopolitan experience
Mr. Levlck believes America to be the
place for a boy to grow up In and thither
he means to go to educate his only son.
Though his versatility expresses Itself In
water, pen, pencil, oil. In etchings, lovely
portraits ot women In graceful gowns and
poses, gauzy scarfs and picture hata, he
has his own favorite line of work. "Once,"
he will tell you, "I took a voysge of many
months, going to America In a sallirg
vessel to study the sea. Into these pic
tureshe Indicated two pictures of Vene
tian waters I have painted what the sea
has told me. I never do my work with a
view to selling only. I believe that an
artist must be true to his Ideals and mine
Is to modify hard realism by an Interpret
tatlon of the Idea behind the canvas.
Poetry Is the highest of tho arts and poetry
should play Its part In a picture."
Mr. Levlck's next door neighbor Is also
an American, and from Philadelphia, the
sculptress. Miss Katherlne M. Cohen, well
known by her bronze of IJncoln. her
"Dawn of Thought," her "Vision of Rabbi
Ber Esra Expounding the Law," by her
seal of Grata college, her portrait of Mrs.
Rohrer, her bust of Dr. Thomson of Phila
delphia, whose daughter married Julian
Btory, and that of General Beaver In the
Smith memorial, Falrmount park.
Like Mr. Levlck. Miss Cohen was In the
Julian studio, studying later, however. In
America with Bf. Gaudens and MncMon
nles. She hss had a studio In Philadelphia
and In New Tork, Is an ardent American
and lives abroad only because of her
health. She Is the daughter of the well
known Henry Cohen of Philadelphia, her
mother being Mrs. Matilda Cohen, founder
of the famous committee of thirteen which

American Art association In Paris, and has
exhibited three times In the Salon. An In

St. Christopher Is the patron of all who

be placed In each machine of ttie club for

On the opposite side of the narrow Via
del Bard! Julius Rohlshoven has a studio
as popular as that which he occupied In
other dayjs In London. Ills large apart
ment Is decorated In true art fashion, an3
this spring Its boast has been the splendid
large canvas, picturing a kind of Vanity
Fair of Life, which was on exhibition at
the exposition In Milan. Mr. Rohlshoven,
as the world knows. Is from Detroit, 'the
son of Frederick Rohlshoven and one of
the American born sons of German parents
who bring honor to America, His art ca
reer began with notice from another artist
when working at his father's business of
goldsmith. He took art lessons at night
at the Cooper Institute while working at
his first profession during the day, and
finally won the success Americans love.
The centennial brought him east with his
father, and New Tork success encouraged
him to become a pupil of Dusseidorf. Later,
leaving Munich, he was one of the fifteen
young students who followed Duveneck to
Italy. After Paris came London and ths
position of water-celortst of rare touch, of
sought-after portrait painter, and author of
such productions as the fine one at Milan.
Prof. Haralarh's Stadeat.
Prof. Albert Harnlsch, also of Philadel
phia, dwells at the upper end of the Via
del Bardl, his studio boasting a delightful
garden. In the days of Plus IX Mr. Ilar
nlsch played his psrt In the fine old so
ciety of W. W. Story and those of the
Browning set. His great regret Is that the
tourists no longer visit the studios as
"In my Roman days." he told me,
"dosens would flock Into my studio, bear
ing my statues and statuettes to America
and largely Into Belgium. They brought
life and Inspiration, and tho artist, per
haps, gnve them more than the statue or
picture In return. One who came to me
for a bust of himself was the father of
Plerpont Morgan. Of othprs I have done
a bust of Miss McOraw of Ithaca, of Prof.
Willard Flake of the same city and one
of General Worthlngton of Jackson, 111.
These are, perhaps, the best known."
Just oft the Vki del Bardl In a little
court stands the I . ie of tha well known
painter of Egypt, lir. Henry Newman. He
has three homes, a boat on the Nile, a villa
near Florence and this town apartment.
He comes to the latter for a few months
each year and is at home on Fridays, when
his friends may see what pictures he u
brought from Egypt, usually but one or
two, since they are purchased as quickly
as painted. Mr. Newman Ur a lover of all
things artistic, especially of things Japa
nese, and his homo is wonderful In Its
possession of vases, ivories, carpels and
all things to excite the envy of a collector.
His pictures are as well known as ha Is
and young America is proud to possess tha
noted painter of old Egypt.

Meaa Beloved af FUrtsrt.
In tho Via dugll ArUstl Is ths studio of
Prof. Larkln G. Mead, perhaps tha artist
of longest residence In Florence. When
about X In tba year 1861. ha cams to Italy,
and baa since, mad his homo In Florence,
with tha exception of six Booths, when ha
acted aa vies consul la Venice. Hla art
career began with a charming story. - Oa
one New Tear's eve the snow fell very
heavily. From, It young Mead modelled a
statue of the "Angel of tha Departing
Tear," which won him enthusiastic praise
and decided his future. Tha world of
America knows his famous statue of Ethan
Allan In the capitol at Washington, the
one at Montpeller, Vt., and that of "Co
lumbus at the Court of Spain" In the pos
session of the city of Sacramento. For
twenty years now he has labored upon a
colossal statue of the Mississippi, destined
for Washington. Forty-four tons of mar
ble have been used In Its construction.
Prof. Mead is much beloved by tha Flor
entines and a local paper this year sings
praises of his condescension in turning
aside from his colossal labors to send an
exquisite small statue, "The Queen of the
Sea." to their "Association ot Italian Art
ists." A stone's throw from Prof. Mead's, in a
studio surrounded by a lovely garden of
flowers. Miss Janet Scudder. worked all
last winter. She pleased the Florentines
by exhibiting In their "Belle Arte" this
spring, and her work won her a prise
which the rules of the association do not
permit a foreign artist to receive. In a
way Miss Scudder Is perhaps the most
truly American artist In Florence, since she
Is a transient and goea home to undertake
a statue representing Japanese art for the
splendid new Brooklyn museum. First,
however, she goes to Parts-to be near the
Museum of Japanese Art before beginning.
Miss Scudder, as Amerlcsns know. Is from
Tetra Haute, Ind. Her studies began under
Louis Rebisso In Cincinnati. In Chicago
Lorado Taft was her master, and it was
there that she modelled statues for the
states of Illinois and Indiana In tha World's
Fair. MacMonnies ultimately became her
master In Paris and such she considers him
Miss Scudder certainly has not wasted
her days. Four bas relief portraits, repro
duced In silver, represent her in the Lux
emburg; she won a medal at St. Louis,
another at Chicago, and has had her "Frog
Fountain" 'bought by the Metropolitan mu
seum of New Tork. Miss Scudder believes
that an artist works really best In her own
country and, while European residence Is
an Inspiration, tt is wise and good for
work to go back at Intervals.
