LONDON,- Jan. 12. For fortr consecutive
year there haa been a winter exhibition
at Burlington house and with three or four
exception the collection! hay consisted
of old master and deceaaed master of the
British achool. Latterly haa been added a
room f till of the work of some artlat re
The flrat exception were made In favor
of Watt,-Mlllal and Lelghton, and In each
case the reputation and the number of the
work of the artlat Juatlfled the proceed
ing. Last year a departure waa made that
called forth a good deal of adverse criti
cism on the part of expert though the
interest of the publlo waa by no means
abated aid there were as many visitors to
the winter exhibition when the entire col
lection of the late Mr. McCulloch wsa
shown aa there usually are.
There Is something to be said both for
and agalnat showing a collection auch aa
that of Mr. McCulloch. For one thing it
Indicates the taste of private collectors,
and It also gives the publlo a chance of
seeing pfcturea that It could hot see other
wise, such as ' the beautiful portrait by
Bargent of Mr. McColloch's son, and of
renewing acquaintance with old favorites
.auch as pictures by MUlals and i Burne-
fiontM. But on the whole the McCblloch
pictures were not of a very high standard,
and those academicians who had been spe
cially patronised might bs accused of aelf
This, year the academicians' have re
verted to their usual custom, and It must
be said that the present show is much
better than it was two years ago, and this
in . spite of the splendid collection of old
masters drawn from private sources, the
loan collection, which is still open at the'
Grafton galleries. The order of the pic
tures is the same as usual, early Italian,
Dutch and Spanish leading up through
Rembrandt and Van Dyck to Gainsborough
and Romney, and one room filled with pic
tures by E. J. Gregory, R. A., who died
last year. ' .
The early Italian pictures are especially
goqd and ilnclude one or two fine examples
by the 'less 'known men of the flftlenth
century. Among these is a "Virgin and
Child" by Plnturlcchlo, notable because of
the treatment of the Child, which before
Raphael, was the weak point In so many
pictures of the same subject The Child
haa a charming expression, and charnrtng
' alsq la the way he is holding out his hands'
as if wanting to play with the cherubs
which encircle the group. )
'In hla laat work, Plnturlcchlo Is said to
have been assisted by Raphael, then a
young man, and.it may be that he caught
com of the latter'a graclousness of style;
or it may be that, in the - evolution of
painting, he waa the link between Raphael
and the more primitive men. Near thia
Cloture hangs a "Virgin, and Child," by
Bottocnl, the Virgin seated - on, a bank
with a beautiful stretoh of landscape be
hind her, and an open book lying by her
side. "The coloring is rioh and harmonious
and the distant scene full of atmosphere. ''
The Nativity'" by Luini is the most
important paintings In this gallery, for the
"Virgin and Child" , by Botticelli, the
"portrait f a Man" by Giovanni Bellini
and the T'Vlrgln and Child with St.' John"
by. Leonardo do Vinci, are all open to
discussion. The color of the Leonar do
is heavy in the halftones, especially In the
flesh, , but tn the enigmatical smile on the
Virgin's face recalls the "Monna Lisa."
- There is a "Virgin and Child and St.
Joseph" by Francesco Melzl, who Is sup
posed to have' been a pupil of Leonardo,
and the expression of the Virgin Is - very
like that In Leonardo's picture mentioned
above. -It Is not surprising that so many
plotures of -whose authorship we have now
no authentlo knowledge ahould be attrib
uted first to one artist and then to an
other, aft. pupils nearly always In their
early days Imitate, their master's Work.
In another room Is a picture called "The
Portraits 'of the Painter and His Wife,"
which , Is supposed to' be. by Rembrandt,
but It is more probable- that It Is by Philip
Konlng, Rembrandt's pupil. Agalnher la
a portrait of a man now N attributed to
Rubens which Is more like' the ' youthful
work of Van Dyck, who was a pupil of

lame man at the Pool-of Bethesda, was one
of a series of eight pictures painted for the
Church of La Carldad. Seville. It waa car

waa bought by an Englishman.
The "8t. Augustine of Hippo," In which
the. saint richly dressed In robes and cope
is raising his hands In a theatrical atti
tude toward the vision of a flaming heart
appearing in the skies, looks merely
theatrical In an ordinary picture gallery.
But imagine that picture hung In the re

windows and Inside by candles and think

crowd of kneeling worshipers with the

where little more than a century ago
his picture could be bought for thirty
florins. Now they fetch at much a 3.000.
In this gallery, aa with the Italian plo
tures, It is impossible to mention all that
Is of interest. One picture that will at
tract a good deal of attention is Sir Peter
Lely fine portrait of Jan Lane, who
helped Charles II to escape after the battle
of Worcester, he riding disguised as her
servant. Inserted in the frame is an au
tograph letter from the king, addressed
to "Mlstrls Lane"v4rigned "Your most
assured and constant friend, Charles R."
The picture of an "Interior with a

known artlat, where it Unrepresented as
hanging on the. wall of the picture gallery
or the British institution, Pall Mall. x
In gallery III one cornea to the eigh
teenth century and the rise of the British
school. Her are to be found two full
length male portraits by Gainsborough,
both very fine. One Is of Sir Charles
Morgan,' lent by the Equitable Life Inaur'
ar.ee company, ef which he waa president,
and the other la of John Eld, Esq., of
Selghford Hall. The latter la lent by the
governor of the Staffordshire General In
firmary, which Mr. Eld waa lnatrumental
In founding. There are a dozen portraits
by Reynolds, of which the most attractive
Is the one of Lady William Gordon. She
was the mother of the child who sat. for
the celebrated picture of "Angela Heads"
In the National gallery, "and she has the
aame delicate beauty.
Romney's work always looks thin and
flat beside that Juf Reynolds', and the big
portrait group of the Beaumont family Is
no exception. . There are five people in this
'group, but they are all detached flgurea

at his suit. And the painting Is ao good.
Everything is perfectly rendered and yet
'keeps Its place In the whole scheme. Thla
picture la lent by J. Plerpont Morgan, who
haa also lent an "Annunciation," by
Lorenso Costa; the "Portrait of a Child,"
already mentioned; "Depositing Giovanni

the Redentore, . Venice,", by Turner; the
self-portrait of Mine. Vlge le Brun, "La
Devideuse," by Greuxe, and the portrait
of "Mme de- Pompadour," by Van Loo.
It la interesting to note that three
portraits by women, Mme. Vigee le Brun,
Maria Cosway and Angelica Kauffmann
all hold their own in such a fine collection.
The latter was an Academician, the only
other woman tohave that distinction being
Mary Mover, the flower painter.
E. J. Gregory, the lately deceased R.
A., whose work fill the last gallery,
was one of the least known of the academi
cians. He waa a ahy and retired man
and hi output of work waa not large.
He chose as a rule simple subjects, working
with equal skill in oil and water colors,
and his picture of girl In "boats on the
upper reaches of the Thame are full of
the delight of the river on sunfly days.
The finest picture of all belongs to Mr.
Sargent. This I called "Dawn." A whole

TELI OF NINEVEH'S GLORY

BIT OP ANCIENT HISTOBY
Cylinder of Baked liar 1 ascribed ia
Caaelrorm Reronata the fireataeaa
of Beanaeherlb and Hla Work
ia Rebnlldlns: the City. '
LONDON, Jan. S. Sennacherib, the war
rior kong of Assyria, was not In the least
troubled with modesty regarding his
achievements, and the latest tresaure placed
In the British Museum Is a record which
he had Inscribed for his descendants, re
counting all that he did for Nineveh.
The trustees of the British Muneum are
greatly pleased to have received this eight
sided cylinder of baked clay, which con
tains the fullest account of Sennacherib's
work In Nineveh and elsewhere yet dlacov
ered. There are 740 lines of cuneiform
characters on It, which makes it Just 253
likes longer than Is the famous Taylor
cylinder found by Colonel E. J.Taylor in
The new baked clay record supplies his
torical mattere of the greatest importance
concerning two of Sennacherib's military
campaigns, glvea a very full account of
the king's enlargement of the city from
9,300 cubits to 21,800 cubits, and of the build
ing of his palace, and contributes a very
valuable piece of information to the exca
vators who are working there: that Is, a
list of the fifteen gates of the city, with
their relative positions.
The cylinder, which is about' two feet In
height, occupies the place of honor In a
caae filled with examples of the Nlnevlte
ounelform, and Is considered the finest spec
imen of them all. It Is In very good condi
tion except that on one.ojVfts eight sides
the clay ia slightly chipped so that some of
the line are obliterated In part, "but not
enough to make the translation difficult.
As soon as the cylinder arrived It was
given at once to two of the officials of the
museum, who are experts at reading this
cuneiform wrltlntr: a pajmful tran-lminn1
Was made and the cylinder was placed In
Its preaent position in the room devoted
to Assyrian and Babylonian' antiquities.
Sennacherib did for Nineveh what Neb
uchadnezzar later did for Babylon. Nine

the western Asian Assyrio-Babylonlan em
pire founded by Nlmrod. He made it the
greatest city of the time In the then known
world. He 1 chiefly famous aa a mighty
warrior king, and the Old Teatament telle
of his campaign against Hesekiah, which
resulted in the disaster still unexplained
which loat him the main port of his army
and saved Jerusalem., Here on this cyl
inder, however, he Is shown aa a great
builder and the record seem to have been
Inscribed with the special purpose of point
ing this out It was burled in the city wall
and was doubtless placed there after some
ceremony commemorating the completion
of the wall, very much as nowadays in
England daily papers are buried under
foundation stones. '
In his Introduction to the section of the
cylinder relating to the building operations,
Sennacherib complains that there haa been
none among "the former kings, my fathers,
to widen the city's dwelling places, to build
walls, to make straight the streets and to
dig a canal and plant plantations." Neither
had any of them turned his attention to
"the palace therein, the dwelling place, the
lordly habitation, whose site was become
too narrow, whose construction was not
beautiful." So ?I, Sennacherib, the king
of hosts, the king of Assyria, to carry out
that work according ' to the will of the
gods,' turned my mind."
That decision was bad for the neighbor
ing states, for he goes on to tell how the

President Harris of Northwestern made
another remark which stirred things. The
president 1 quoted as having said: "The

iu mo iiiiiBuwi ui iuo American musician

But the "doctors" differ. Add so, here
come "doctor" Walter Kothweli, "the con
ductor of the St. Paul Symphony orchestra,
who say that President Harris, the "doc
tor" from the Northwestern university. Is
wrong. The defiant, differing "doctor" of
the orchestra says: "Any person who
makes such a statement 1 not well In
formed. Mr. Harris has chosen a poor lo
cality for such an attack, aa the musical
entertainments 1b Chicago are almost suffi
cient to disprove his assertion. Chicago Is
enjoying a revel of music," etc.
Mr. Rothwell then proceeds to discourse
upon the 'various presentations of "The
Messiah" in Chicago, the projection of an
opera house for grand opera, the subscrip
tion lists for "symphony concerts." And
then he cite what 1 being done In Ht.
Paul through the appearance of grand
opera stars in concert aad recital. ,
He says: "I a" ao other country tn the

are supported by the personal guarantee
of men who back them for th pur lov
of muslo. Th same (a true of Minne

Then "doctor" Rothwell of the St. Paul
Symphony orchestra goes on to Speak of
the many musical organisations, clubs,
societies, companies,' etc He speak of
the demand for great, violinists, pianists
and soloists, (presumably he mean "sing

of their land they cut down. In the month
of Ivyar, at the time of the spring floods,
on mighty rafts they brought them across
with difficulty to the other side. In the
crossing of the quay wall the great vessels
sank deeper and their crewa groaned and
were distressed in spirit, but by might and
tribulation they brought them with diffi
culty and set them up In their gates."
It Is a wqjiderful picture of the building
of one of the great cities of old when
huojian labor was so cheap that Nebuchad
nezzar, for instance, was able to build a
magnificent' temple In fifteen days.
Sennacherib's talo continues in this
fashion: "I altered the sTcture of the
palace and enlarged Its site. Palaces of
gold, silver, bronze, malachite, breccia, ala
bahter. Ivory, cedar, cypress, plnefor my
lordly habitation I constructed. Breams of
cedar and cypress, whose scent Is pleasant,
the products of Amanus and Soiara, tho
snow-capped mountains, I arranged In place
above them. Doors of cedar, cypress, pine
and slndu wood, with a plating of silver
and copper, I found. Female colossi of
alabaater and ivory, wearing horned head
dresses, having bent talons, clothed with
strength and vigor, full of spend or, I set

parts, the cornices and all the coping' It
Is a vision of barbaric spendor thatap-
proaches the description of Solomon' tern'
pie. "The palace that haa no rival," Senna
cherib called his habitation.
The king's proudest record is of the
casting of bronze lions, colosal which had
been moulded in clay "aa in casting half
shekel pieces." It was evidently an un
Further on he says: "The neighborhood
of the palace I made' beautiful. A great
park wherein all kinds of herbs and fruit
trees and trees the product of, the moun
tains and of Chaldea, together! with trees
that bear wool were Included, beside It I
After finishing the palace he turned his
attention to the city and1 built an Inner
and an outer wall; then "I, enlarged the
area of Nlniveh, my lordly city, Its open
spaces' I broadened and made It bright
like the 'day. Above the city and below
the city I laid out gardens."
A description of the warrior king's meth
ods of punishing rebellious vassals follows:
"Klrua, the prefect of Iijubru, a servant
who was subject to me, whose god forsook
him, Vaused the troops of Cicllia to revolt
and offered battle. -The peoples who dwelt
In lustra and Tarsus supported htm and
they seized the CIclltan road; they stopped
the traffic Bowmen bearers of shields (?.
and lances, chariots and horses, my royal
troops I sent against them. The troops
of Clctlla who supported him they de
feated In the midst of a difficult mountain.
They conquered Illubru and Tarsus and
carried off their spell. He himself they
besieged in Illubru, his Btronghold, and
they cut off egress from it. With the as
sault of siege engines, great files of the
wall and and the attack of foot
soldiers they defeated him and captured
the city.- Kims, the prefect, with the spoil
of his cities and the peoples of Cicllia
who had supported him, together - with
asses, oxen and slieep, they brought to
Nlniveh Into my presence. Kerua I flayed."
Lastly Sennacherib enjoins that "in after
days among the kings, my suns, when that
wall shall have grown old and shall have
fallan into decay. Jet him repair the ruined
parts of it, let .him find Inscriptions
which recorded my name and let him offer
a sacrifice and restore each to its place."
But let us look a little into his diagnosis.
Mr. Walter Rothwell says, speaking of
Chicago "Th musical entertainment."
And he say that "Chicago 1 enjoying a
revel of music." ,
But ia muBlo a species' of "entertain
ment," or an "enjoyment" to "revel" In?
Most emphatically not Her th musi
cal editor of Th Be distinctly disagree

It conductor, Mr. ' Rothwell). MubIo 1

it 1 not merely an enjoyment to revel in.
It 1 a glorlou. God-given, uplifting holy
art, to be atudied, to be enjoyed in the

and not physically "revelled" in.
Would you apeak of being "entertained"

It Is not a question as to how much
