THE COURIER. ;. "V- -rt ". -4 IT THE ART EXHIBITS IN CHICAGO. As Seen by a Lincoln Artist. Miss Cora Parker, instructor in art at the state university, returned last week from Chicago, where she hud been to attend the notable art exhibitions that were held in the Chicago art institute Miss Parker is an enthusiast in her line ot work, andshe brought back a glowing account of what she saw. "The most important work shown was the Raphaelli exhibit," she Baid. "This artist had two hundred and fifty pictures and they were beautiful and impressive. He is an impressionist ot the most pro nounced type. His pictures are low in tone, and gray is the predominating color. He says that the idea of beauty among the general public is physical beauty; but his idea of beauty is char acter. His paintings show his idea to perfection. He takes street scenes for his subject, and such scenes where he can portray character. Two of his pic tures that were most characteristic were a street scene in London and one in Paris. He had succeeded in painting the Englishman so that he might be recognized by anyone. He had caught the indefinable something that charac terizes an Englishman. In the Paris scene he had made the same success with the gay Frenchman. This scene was all light and perfectly Parisian in its whole aspect. "The most famous painting ho had there was his 'Absinthe Drinkers.' This is owned by Potter Palmer. A picture of his daughter was also on ex hibition. His impressionism is pro nounced, butiit is peculiar. He is ori ginal. His colors are subdued and he handles his brush with the oddest effect. "In contrast to his work were the pictures by Monet, another of the great French artists, in the same building. Monet had but twenty one pictures, but they were beautiful. He, too, is an im pressionist, but he is a colorist. His pictures are brilliant with color. They were all landscapes with but little life portrayed. He fairly revels in color. These two artists are both of them of the extreme impressionist school; yet they are so different in their work; the one with scarcely any color and the other with all the brilliant hues imag inable. Yet they are both considered great artists. "In the same building was also a water color exhibit of the pictures of A. E. Abbey, a young and newly recognized artist. He has been widly known as an illustrator in the Harper's magazines, but it is just recently that he began to do any painting. His work is attracting a great deal of attention. He paints Shakesporian characters. Ho had five pictures on exhibition and they wore much admired. "Down town at an, art dealer's there was also an exhibit of the paintings of a number of Dutch artists. Among them were canvasses by Joseph and Isaac Isreals. The paintings were quiet in tone, dainty and pleasing. There was nothing startling about them simple, quiet and unobtrusive like the Dutch people themselves. "fext door to this place Leonard Oct man's pictures were on exhibition. He is a young American artist and his work is most exquisite. He is an American im pressionist, and has a style peculiar to himself. His pictures are clear in color, not extreme in style, yet lively and full of dash and originality. They are ex tremely light in color. He has no deep shadows. He is an exponent of the theory that to flood a scene with, sun light you must also lighten tho shadows Theol'1 theory was, that by contrast you should put in deep shadows to bring out sunlight effects; but the new theory is that everything must bo light as it is in nature. His canvasses aro mostly landscape scenes in Connecticut. I was thoroughly delighted with his pic tures and enjoyed them extremely." THE FIRS'l OF MAY. Written for The Cocbieb.J Tho merry sound of the soda fountain ' We daily hear Ffcz, fizz, The bicycle riders are gaily riding Both far and near Whizz, whizz The moving vans go lumbering by With household goods piled up skyhigh, And we nudge each other and softly say "It's the first of May." Tho straw hat on the street appears, And suits so loud that they hurt our ears, The tennis racquet and base ball bat, White shoes and bloomers and all of that. And we nudge each other and softly say It's the first of May." The fisherman goes out with a lot of Mies He comes home again with a string of lies The" poets all write from morning to night And wo nudge each other and softly say "It's the first of May."

Canfield Mrs. Fairbrother, editor of the Woman's Weekly, says: "Among other things which have happened during tho past week or two is the resig nation of Chancellor Canfield of the state university. Unfortunately for the state Federation of Women's Clubs, if the chancellor moves to Ohio he will probably bo accompanied by his wife. It is therefore a calamity for us. Tho women everywhere were of the opinion that Mrs. Canfield, on account of her experience, ability and position, was just the woman for the presidency of this new organization. When she finally concluded to accept the office last winter there was great rejoicing. A letter from Mrs. Canfield says, 'You cannot imagine how I hate to leave Nebraska and the honor of serving tho State Federation.' The work is of course greater than any worker, but notwithstanding this fact it is sometimes very difficult to relinquish a woman possessing the qualities of Mrs. Canfield. We cau only say the best wishes of the women all over the state will go with her wherever her lot be cast. We shall miss her, uot soon forget her, and hope to hear from her occasionally through the columns of the woman's paper, in which she has shown great interest. She is a broad minded, cultivated gentle -woman and in the old Buckeye state will make many friends and find many con genial associates. Mrs. Elia W. Peattie, a woman een better known throughout Nebraska than Mrs. Canfield, from the fact that she has resided in the state for a longer period, is the vice-president. She will make a most charming presid ing officer." heretofore, Mr. Roy G. Howell being left to take chargo of tho business affairs. The position of director has been offered to Prof. Gray. Sioveking Director Kimball, of tho university conservatory of music, announces that Mr. Sioveking will return to tho conservatory in September. Beemer The out going warden of tho penitentiary, who, by tho way, goes out of otlico with tho best record of any man who has filled this important position, may possibly not return to tho town of Beemer. Under tho recent act of the legislature tho state will purchase tho contract for labor at tho pen now held by W. II. Dorgan, and there is a poesiblity that Mr. Beemer may bo retained as superintendent. Dorgan Tho salo to tho state of W. II. Dorgan's prison contract is to bo made under the appraisement of three commissioners. Mr. Dorgan this week selected one, A. II. Gait, of Bassett, and the state has named W. J. Broatch, of Omaha. These two will select a third. Mr. Gale is well known in this city through his services as world's fair commissioner, tlo was among those who protested against Garneau's incom petency and extravagance. Gale is a fair minded, upright man. His selec tion is a good one. Mr. Broatch was for merly mayor of Omaha, and is one of the prominent republicans of the state. He used to be celebrated for his antipathy to Rosewater, but lately the breach has been partially closed. Mr. Broatch enjoys the confidence of tho public. When the prospective Bale has been made Mr. Dorgan will be like the iridescent ex-senator from Kansas, and the "boy orator of the Platte," and a large number of other people, "out of a job"; but ho is energetic and he will not have much trouble in finding an open ing. It is the customary thing now adays to abuse all persons concerned in the management of the penitentiaries and asylums, and officials in this state have had their sharo ot criticism. Under the present arrangement Mr. Dorgan has a good deal to do with tho handling of convicts, and it is a fact that there has never been any serious charge of ill treatment on his part. It is admitted on all sides that tho prisoners have been well fed and properly taken care of. Howell It is announced that Mr. and Mrs. O. B. Howell, founders of the Nebraska Conservatory of Music, will go to Denver to take charge of the music department of the University of Denver, at the beginning of the next term. September 4. Mr. Howell will be dean of the college of music and Mrs. Howell will be preceptress of the home for young ladies. The conservatory in this city, will it is said, be conducted as Cox Tuesday Sam D. Cox left this city and started for Kimball, Nebraska, near which point he will rusticate until fall. Mr. Cox has given unremitting attention to the newspaper business for some years, and he naturally feels that a change will do him good. So he will settle down on his estate in Scott's Bluff county at Minatare post office and sow alfalfa on his lordly acres. He takes a I i ViUJMrak .BasHaaWtHaav v&wJVir m M. L. Ckeuwnt Leonard, Ma.
