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."

Tho merry sound of the soda fountain
' We daily hear

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
And we 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.

the Nebraska Conservatory of Music,

music department of the University of
Denver, at the beginning of the next

dean of the college of music and Mrs.
Howell will be preceptress of the home
