"Conquest of the Prairies," Done by
Irving B. Bacon, Marks
Transition of West.
"Th Conquest of the Prairie," one of
the largest canvasses ever exhibited In
Omaha, la the title of a painting In oil
which now decorate one of the panels In
th court of the Bee building. The paint
ing la the work of Irving R. Baoon, a De
troit arlst, who has been studying for
several year In Munich, where this paint
Ing was made.
The late Edward Roeewater suggested to
Mr. Baoon the subject of the painting
early In 1904 and the last five and one-half
years have been put In by the artist In
studying his eubjeot and exeouttng this,
his masterpiece. Before being shipped to
America th painting was exhibited In
Munich and the painter received honor
awards and many compliments on the
'Tha Conquest of the Prairie" Is exe
cuted In faithful detail and the artist
himself, when he undertook the work, said
that he oonsidared It "a grand opportunity
to express the remarkable' transition our
great west has passed through In Its
course of development." The painting de
plots much that I Interesting and true to
the life of a half century ago. In the fore
ground are the Indian In correct oostume
and savage regalia and real abortglnees
In countenance. Running with th Indians,
who are mounted on ponies, Is a herd of
bison, while baok of this scene Is shown a
train of prairie schooners, with a mounted
soout polntng the way.
Colon! W. F. Cody, "Buffalo Bill." was
onsulUd by th artist for this part, the
famous scout being Included In the com
position at the suggestion of the late "Ed
ward Rosewater. Finding th type In Colo

depicts the forerunner of civilisation who
helped open the boundless prairies for th
In the extreme background of the picture
a railway treatla Is shown across which
steams a pioneer train. Th trestle looks
much like the Union Paclflo bridge across
th Missouri river and the city back of It
could easily be mistaken for the sky line
Thev palntlitg of the "Conquest ot th
Pratrl" will be hung In th rotunda of
th Bee building temporarily, whar It can
bo viewed by visitors. It remains th prop
erty of the artist.

YODER SAYS THIS INSTITUTE
IS ONE OF MOST SUCCESSFUL
Ceantr iaiperlateaaeait Talk te lfc
Teachers at Close) at (ha
f Th Douglas County Teachers'. Institute,
on of th most successful ever held, as
County Superintendent Toder told the
teachers In his closing address, adjourned
Friday noon after having been In session
for 4 week. Over 100 teachers, representing
the sixty-two country schools, attended the
Institute and all classes were filled. v
Dr. Sanford Bell of Denver made th
clpelng address during th noon hour, tak
ing "Growth" for hi subject. Hs told the
teachers that if their profession Is consid
ered narrow It la their own fault, because
so many teacher cease td grow when they
have once secured license to teach. He
contrasted tha teacher with th lawyer,
phystolsn and people belonging to other
professions by pointing out th fact that
In these other professions constant study
and growth Is demanded.
In his final talk to th teachers Prof. fi.
M. Oraham, superintendent of the South
Omah schools, advised against holding
school entertainments, as the time spent In
their preparation Is taken from tha atudles.
He also told the teachers not to think so
much about their hat and th gown they
are to wear at tomorrow night's entertain
ment, but to concern themselves more with
the children and their studies and to put
forth their best efforts for heir wellfare.
