BY ALICE ROHE , Written for NBA Service When young Master Buttal, back in 769, donhe'ia'blue satin Van Dyck costume to:'have his picture painted e cotildn*t have posed so calmly and naturally if he had known the furor us portrait was goittii! to make in the world. • Of, course he was proud to have the aiStihgnlsneU artist • Thomas -c«>i»- lorough paint him, but as his father t-as a man of wealth" and taste he ook it as a matter of {act. That he— or ratHe^ his likeness-^-was one day to cost an American magnate more than lalf a million dollars would have seemed as fantastic as that he himself would be knpwn' to fame, not as Johnathan Buttai; but as The Blue Boy. Jolmatha'n's father was a rich iron monger of Greek and King Street, Soho. Among his friends was the art- st Gainsborough who- had spent his youth' at Ipswich, 'wh^re the Buttals lad much property. The 4uiet, studious boy was accustomed to meet people of the art and literary world In lis home. When Thomas Gainsborough asked him to wear a blue satin Van Dy* costume, he was,probably too much of a regular *boy to bother about the reason. After all, English artists of the late eighteenth century were given to painting their subjects in picturesque effects. But the Blue Boy was blue in mere than costume. It was Gainsborough's answer to Sir Joshua Reynolds' assertion ttaji light in a painting should te.wartn yellgw or red and that the use'of bl«ei could not produce a fi» e picture. Gainsborough's reply in pam- is of course PUS Pf the worlds great masterpieces. And he dW not have to wait until 'h» was dead to have hw work appreciated, though his portraits rarely brought him over one hundred pounds. Five hundred dollars—and Henry Huntington is reputed to have paid $850,000 for,The Blue Boy! The portrait has a meaning other than Us artistic principle. It reveals that Gainsborough's best work was produced when he was inspred by cer, tain qauities in the 'sitter. Beauty and gentility and dignity of character aroused all the poetry and sympathy of the artists'* nature. He never spouted theories like Reynolds nor did he try to tell a story. He merely jainted what he saw, which is a fine compliment to Master Buttal, who is -evealed as a well-bred young gen- leman. The nicely modeled head, drawn wv<h (precision, glows with color. The face is impressive because of its refinement and pure boyishness of expression. The firm sensitive mouth, the straight nose and fine eyebrows, the natural grace, of. poise tell their own story. : Whan JohnathanV father dlod thl son succeeded ot his business. Ant the Gainsborough portrait remainet in his possession until 1789. Although he conducted the big interests of his dead father until 1796, for some reason or other he sold most of his persona' effects at auction. It was in 1789 tha George, Prince of Wales, obtained possession of The Blue Boy, which even tually passed through different hand to the Duke of Westminister, from whom it was purchased for Mr. Huntington. When Johnathan's things were auctioned off there were a number of Gainsborough's sketches among the books, paintings and musical instruments that went on the block. And one item that takes our breath away was sixty dozen bottles of choice, old, red port. He and Gainsborough had many tastes in common, for the artist was musical and he loved books and culture. Gainsborough was born in Sudbury, Suffolk, in 1727. His lather was a well-to-do crape maker and importer of this funeral material. His mother was a fine painter of flowers. His brother Johnathan, was a genius of sorts who as a youth invented an airship. Gainsborough loved the country and his landscapes are the pictures he loved best to paint. Portraits, however, were his bread and butttcr, and to this we owe The Blue Boy. Johnathan Buttal—The Blue Boy- was not of noble blood as were so many of Gainsborough's subjects. But when he died something fine that bespeaks a real nobility was expressed in a brief notice in the London Morning Herald of December 2, 1805: "Died on Friday last at his home in Oxford St. Johnathan Buttal Esq. a gentleman whose amiable manner and good disposition will cause him to be ever regretted by his friends." Would The Blue Boy whose portrait is valued in America at $850,000 have asked for a dearer valuation than to have been so loved by his friends? New Cigarette Tax Stamp Next Month Sew Stamps Cannot Be Taken From Wrapper of Package LITTLE ROCK.—(#)-A new stick- Ight tax stamp designed to end a tax qyftgion racket will go on packages of Cigarettes in Arkansas after March 1. Other states have been faced with the same problem. • The new tax stamp cannot bo, removed from the package wrapper* thus obviating the necessity of sandpapering the wrapper to make the stamp hold, or of slitting it to affix the stamp to the package itself. Because the stamps in the past could be removed easily, the states have lost much revnue through unscrupulous dealers re-using the stamps. Revenue collectors of other states have informed! David A. Gates, commissioner of revenue for Arkansas .that evasions through this method are costing on the average 18 per cent of the collectable revenues. , On this basis, the new stamps wll bring in an additional $180,000 a year 'but Mr. Gates says this estimate is too high for Arkansas. Re-use of the present tax stamp has become a "racket," Earl R. Wise man, deputy commissioner in charg of cigarette tax collections, believes. "Hotel bell hops over the state have been picking up the cigarette package wrappers and removing the stamps,"' Mr. Wiseman said his inspectors have reported. "These are wdrth five cents to the dealer, and we find the bell hops and others who have been making" "good money" at this game, have benn selling the used stamps to unscrupulous 'dealers for as low as two cents each." Mr. Wiseman declined to attempt an estimate of the loss of revenue through the re-use of stamps. In January, 1931, the department col. lected $65,226.10 on cigars and cigarettes, with the tax rate four cents a package of 20 cigarettes. In January of this year, the collection of the fiva- cent tax on a package of 20 cigaretttes reached $68,128.89. If the revenue this year was figured On 6 basis of four cents, the amount collected would have been considerably less, though an actual compilation is difficult as the revenue from the cigar tax, the rate of which has Hot been changed, enters into the matter. 1 On a basis of $2 per thousand, or four cents a package of 20, the state collected in 1928-29, $1,093,417, and in 1929-30 the revenue amounted to $1,- We wonder if the peace Japan is talking about wanting from China shouldn't be speUed'"piece."

S. Bates, Agent A Young Member of National' Capital's Official Family Wild Horse Herd FountHhi Island State Veterinary Department Report Approximately 1,500 Head LITTLE ROCK.-(/P)-A herd of ap* proxlmtely 1,500 wild horses-believed the largest In the southwest—has been found on ah island of the Mississippi river by inspectors of the state veterinary department. The area la in Chlcot county, near the Louisiana line. This is the second herd found In Arkansas within a year, the other having been discovered in Nevada county. Dr. J. H. Bux, state veterinarian, said efforts wll be made to dip the horses. Tick eradication work will bo made easier, he said, because much of the area Inhabited by the herd is covered with water. This forces the horses to higher ground, where they can be run through vats. Sixty miles of fences are being Constructed on the Arkansas-Louisiana line to keep out cattle from the tick- infested areas of Louisiana. A few counties on th ellne will soon be tick free, Dr. Bux said, thus freeing the entire state of the federal cattle quarantine.

The patrons themselves were seeking to arrange for their continued operation. Private subscription campaigns were planned by patrons of some schools . The news that the schools could not be operated longer came Saturday night and left the patrons somewhat bewildered.
