THE WEEKLY WISCONSIN. MILWAUKEE, AUGUST 26,1885. MEN WHO MAKE PICTURES. Gossip Concerning Dibtlnguished Abbey, Pyle, Thul- Btrnp, Smedley, Frost, Beinhart, Nart, Gibson, Snyder, Manner of Men They Are. A WISCONSIN reporter recently enjoyed the pleasure of an hour's conversation with Charles Graham, of the illustrating staff of the Harpers' publications.

In the course of a discursive talk upon engraving and artists, Mr. Graham furnished much interesting personal information concerning the group of illustrators whose work in the Harpers' publications has made their names familiar to intelligent people throughout the country. A remarkable thing about the artists in the employ of the Harpers, he said, is that they are nearly all young men. Most of them began to work for the firm when mere boys, and have developed while in its employ. Many of the famous artists who have drifted into different fields were developed in the employ of the Harpers.

Charles Parsons, the superintendent of the art department, is himself a very clever painter. He has taken care of the younger illustrators as if they were his own boys. The Harpers employ a great many artists, but only a few who are under contract to them. Abbey, Reinhart and Mr. Graham himself are among those who are under contract to work exclusively for the firm.

Many of the others, however, are kept so busy that they have no time or inclination to do much work for anyone else. Years ago the firm used to keep a very large staff in the illustrating department, but many of the artists wanted to occupy their own studios, and have the benefit of getting their own models and being surrounded by an atmosphere of their own choosing, andthefirmhas found it best to allow them a great deal of liberty in this respect. Howard Pyle works almost exclusively for the Harpers. He has a very large studio in Wilmington, where he lives, and goes back and forth between there and the Harpers with his drawings. Wilmington is a quaint little place, and he is fond that sort of atmosphere.

He has a great collection of costumes. Mr. Pyle is a writer as well as an artist. A. B.

Frost, whose general work is very good, and who has attracted attention in the field of comic illustration, is a tall fellow with a sandy beard. He lives in Long Island. His house is crammed full of antique furniture and beautiful old colonial costumes. Connecting with his studio is a large glass house into which he can take his model to work from when he desires to get an out-door study. He can bring in chickens from his yard, if he wants them.

Mr. Frost gets any quantity of models from the Long Island farmers who are his neighbors. The types which they represent are just what he wants. Reiuhart, who has grown to be a very familiar friend of the readers of the Harpers' publications within the past twelve been in Paris for some time. He is in New York just now, but his family remain in Paris, and he will rejoin them there in a short time.

He has been doing a good deal of work for the Harpers while abroad. Reinhart is a very strong illustrator, and so versatile that he can handle any subject, and is good in book work as well as newspaper work. His home is in Pittsburg. He is still a comparatively young man. Smedley is poing to make a strong illustrator.

He paints a good water color. In fact, all the illustrators upon occasion do good work in water-colors and oil. E. A. Abbey is a He is in England now, where he lives with Alfred Parsons, who is considered the best landscape painter in England.

They have a delightful bachelor's home at Bedford Gardens. Abbey's work in water-colors is very much sought after. He is a great student trpm the never works without it when he can avoid it. His collection of costumes is large and valuable. They are not stage costumes, but made of fine material, so as to enable the artist to get silk and satin and other rich textural effects.

His illustrations of Herrick's poems cost animmensesum of money, on account of the outlay for expensive costumes which they necessitated. Abbey is a quaint, unassuming, pleasant little fellow, always ready to extend a hearty welcome to any American student who comes his way. Thulstrup, who has figured conspicuously of late as one of the illustrators of the Grant, funeral, in the Weekly, is considered about the strongest newspaper illustrator that the Harpers nave. Pretty much ail the work that he does is for them. He is a Swede, and the son of Gen.

Thulstrup, of the Swedish army. His full name is Thure de Thulstrup, the "de" in the name indicating descent from a noble family. Hie residence in this country has thoroughly Americanized him, and anyone would take him for a native. The Swedish people are very proud of him, and watch nis work with great interest. Thulstrup received his education in a military school, and was captain of a French artillery company in the Fran co-Prussian war.

This explains the familiar knowledge of military matters which is evident in many of his pictures. He is extremely fond of military subjects, and Mr. Graham entertains the opinion that he is destinec to be the great military painter of this country. His work in water colors has a ready market, and all his pictures sell very quickly. Thulstruo's studio is stuffed full of armor, uniforms and military models, made to a scale.

Recently he has had a model of a gun and gun carriage made, to enable him to draw the gun in any position. He has a peculiar contrivance for seating a model in the, different positions assumed by a man on horseback. He draws the horse a great deal from living models, making elaborate studies oi it in oil. Thulstrup intends coming out West next year, on a- sketching He is chiefly curious to see Wisconsin, Dakota and Montana, and is anxious to paint such frontier subjects as loggers, cow-boys, and wild horses and cattle. W.

H. Gibson is a very hard worker. He lives in Brooklyn. His little landscapes, with flowers and birds constitute his most characteristic work. They are delicately and feelingly done and very decorative.

Ladies who paint china have copied them so extensively that, as Mr. Graham remarked, "Wherever you go, from one end of the country to the other, you are constantly meeting with reproductions of Gibson pictures on china plates, saucers and teacups." Gibson paints a great deal in water colors. His work of this sort is in active demand, and he has made a great deal of money. W. P.

Snyder is on the Harpers' staff, and works exclusively for them. The first picture he exhibited was a large water-color, which was a very notable success, and there is no doubt that if he would devote himself to that branch of art he would make a very water-color painter; but he has been so busy with illustrations that he has dropped out of it. Snyder commenced as a boy with the Harpers. He is particularly clever at newspaper work. Speaking of Thomas STast, Mr.

Graham remarked: "I suppose you Milwaukee people remember iim pretty well. He remembers you well, and often speaks with pleasure of his experience in Milwaukee and Wisconsin. When he learned that I was coming out hereie said that he would like nothing better than to come with me. Socially, Nast is a charming fellow. There is no pretension about affectation.

He is content to be simply Tom Nast. He lives at Morristown, N. and is very hospitable. In the profession heislooked ipon as the grand-daddy of all the cartoonists. I think Mr.

Keppler has made that remark. He is not old, however, but has all the snap and vigor of youth. Lately, he has not lad subjects as admirably fitted to lis genius as he had in the days of the Tweed Ring." SCRAPS OF HISTORY. JAMES G. ELAINE is 'suffering from gout.

AURORA, Aug. Boone County, just below' Petersburg, on the bank of the Ohio and almost opposite the rolling mill at Aurora, stands a deserted, vacant frame dwelling, known far and wide as the haunted house. So many stories have been told about it that sturdy, weather-beaten, and sun-bronzed fishermen, while passing in their skiffs, look upon it and talk about it as a "hanted" place, and the boys and girls from Aurora, while rowing for pleasure upon the river in the summer moonlight evenings, cease their singing and are inclined to pull away from the Kentucky shore when approaching the place.

This uninviting, shunned and mysterious house is a frame, two.story high, with two rooms below and two above. It stands above the reach of floods, some fifty feet back from the high, bluff bank. The fence which once surrounded it has long since fallen down, and the ya.rd is full of high, rank weeds and creeping vines, where snakes and lizards live unmolested. In the evening hundreds of swallows fly out of the old brick chimney, circle around and settle back into the dark funnel; bats fly in and out of the broken windows and half-open doors, and later in the night is heard the owl's dismal hoot from her perch ''upon the roof. The whole premises present a scene of utter ruin, decay and desolation.

The house was built many years ago, with lumber and materials taken down the river from Cincinnati, by a young man named West, whose family was murdered among the pioneers of Boone County, all the members of which were prominent and respected citizens of the community. The house was intended to be his future home, and at the time of its construction was regarded as the finest residence on the Ohio, nearly all the others being log cabins of rude construction. The young lady to whom he was engaged to be married, and with whom he expected to occupy his new home with him as his wife, was named Reed, and lived upon the opposite side of the Ohio on the hills near Aurora. She, too was quite a belle and an heiress. In due time the marriage took place at the home of the young bride, and, after the ceremony, their friends accompanied the young couple to the river, and West rowed his wife over to the newly-built and furnished home, reaching there just at dark.

Their friends watched" them from the opposite shore till they entered the house, and that was the last' tune either was ever seen alive. Late the following morning relatives called, and failing to receive any reply to their repeated knockings upon the door opened it and entered the house. Upon the bed, in her night clothes, lay the bride of a few short hours cold in death, her face and throat showed that she had been strangled or smothered to death. the furniture in the room giving proof by its disarranged condition that a terrible struggle had taken place in the chamber of death. The husband could not be found, and has never been seen or heard of.

Whether he killed his wife and fled has never been known, but relatives and friends asserted most positively that that could not have been the case, as there was no motive for such a deed. The most reasonable theory is that some third person or persons murdered them both, the murderers having some grudge against them, and then either concealed the husband's body in the vicinity or carried it down with his clothing, and with rocks to hold them down, sunk them in the river. Why the wife's body was not similarly disposed of, some say, is because the murderers wished to leave it in the room, and, the husband's body and clothes not being found, the natural inference would be that he had murdered her and had fled the country, the perpetrators of the double murder taking this plan to divert suspicion from themselves. But, be that as it may, and whichever story concerning it be true or false, the house has never sincehad an occupant for more than one night. Unlicensed Insurance Companies.

MADISON, Aug. investigation set on foot by Insurance Commissioner Spooner some time ago, has recently brought to light some of the most startling frauds and evasions of law yet chronicled in the history of this state. It remained for recent fires to assure the commissioner that gross injustice was being done to both the state at large and also many individual insurers in the state. Itnowap- Eears that there are in the neighbour- odd of seventy-five insurance companies doing an illegal business, that is, doing business without conforming with the laws of the state in paying the required license fee, appointing an attorney upon whom papers can be served, etc. The official statement of most of these companies shows an astonishingly small capital.

Two are known to be merely paper companies. These have been organized by unscrupulous individuals who have made out policies, received premiums, and paid out losses only when it would aid thenr in securing more risks in the same locality. The law requires a capital stock of $200,000 for a company to obtain an insurance license; and the probabilities are that not more than one- fourth of these possess sufficient capital to come in and take out a license under the laws of this state. The penalty imposed by law is $500, and it is hoped that the prosecution may be successful and those companies which are defying the 'laws of the state be both punished and compelled to take outalicense and conform withthelaw. Minneapolis Beats St.

Paul. ST. PAUL, Aug. long travail St. Paul and Minneapolis have brought forth, and the population, according to thestatecensusis: St.Paul, 111,397, and Minneapolis, 129,200.

Between 1870 and 1880, a ten-year period, the population of St. Paul increased from 20,030 to 41,473, a gain of 21,443, or 107 per cent. In the same time the population of Minneapolis advanced from 13,066 to 46,887, a gam of 33,821, or 259 per cent. In the five-year period fromlSSOto 1885 covered by the state returns St. Paul's population has risen from 41,473 to 111,397, a gain of 69,924, or 168.6 per cent.

That of Minneapolis has increased according to this authority from 46,887 to of 82,313, or 175.5 per cent. The increase of population in Ramsey County is 70,313, or 153 per and that in Hennepin is 81,722, or 122 percent. Cremation in Milwaukee. Few of the heedless and sportive throng that frequent the road that leads to Whitefish Bay know that near that thoroughfare, on the brow of a bluff overlooking the lake, took plaoe thiity years ago the only cremation in the history ol Wisconsin. There are but few Milwaukeeans that are aware of such an occurrence, and still fewer that have any personal knowledge of the facts of the case.

On the property now owned by A. W. Rich, the last residence'on the lake bluff that stands on the road to Whitefish Bay, lived, at the time indicated, Prof. Durege, a fine performer on the violincello and a prominent member of the Musical Society. He is now professor of astronomy in the college at Zurich, Switzerland.

Prof. Durege was an enthusiastic believer hi cremation as a means of disposing of the bodies of the dead. His little daughter, 4 years old, sickened and died. He cremated her on a funeral pile. There was no witness to the ceremony except the professor.

The body of the dead child was laid tenderly on the pile of combustibles, the torch applied, and the father, with all the stoicism of an Indian chief, sat himself down to watch the consuming flames slowly lick and shrivel up the limbs of his loved one. Afterwards, in the fading light, by aid of a candle, the ashes of the child were gathered up and placed in an urn. The Home of the Condors. the Boston Mr. Meiggs carried his famous railroad from Lima to the crest of the Andes at a cost of $27,000,000 and 7.000 human lives, but died before completing it.

About fifty miles of track remain to be built. contract for its construction has just been made by a brother of Mayor Grace, of New York. It is said that the sensation of riding up this railroad, together with the rapid ascent from the sea level to the mountain's crest, produces a sickness called "sirocche," often fatal, and usually sending people to bed for several weeks. The symptoms are a terrible pressure on the temples, nausea, bleeding at the nose and ears and faintness, but the effects can be avoided by taking precautions and observing rules that experience has suggested, the chief one being to drink a glass of brandy and keep perfectly quiet, as the slightest degree of exercise will floor man. The Watersmeet Tragedy.

WATERSMEET, Aug. are the particulars of the tragedy which occurred near this place on the 13th. On the date named a man by the name of McCoy, while under the influence of liquor, outraged the wife of Peter Smith, a section boss, who resides near the depot. The struggle was witnessed by Smith's little son, who called his father who appeared on the scene and shot McCoy dead. His body remained in the bushes for a daj before an inquest could be held, owing to the remoteness of the place from the sheriff.

The dead man was a native of New York. He was a thick-set, light-complexioned Scotchman. It is thought Mrs. Smith cannot recover from her injuries, as she was in a delicate condition when assaulted. Stole From His Father.

MADISON, Aug. McKey, with George Merriam and George Makey, all of Lake City, and all aged about 20 years, were arraigned before the municipal court this morning charged with stealing $102 in United States bond coupons fromR.F. McKey, father of Bert. This young man confessed that he alone stole the coupons and treated his companions to an excursion and that they were not aware till this morning that they were enjoying the fruits of stolen money. Young McKey was handed over to his father, who will have him tried at Lake City and sent to the Minnesota state prison.

The other boys werereleased. R. F. McKey was formerly in the dry goods trade at Madison, Janesville and Oshkosh. England's Only Hope.

NEW YORK, Aug. Edmunds and family arrived from Europe yesterday. In an interview last night, the Senator, in response to a question about the present condition in England said: "It is depressed- very much depressed. I made inquiries wherever I went on that point and the reply was everywhere the same. The cause is undoubtedly overproduction.

England has gone on manufacturing until she has glutted all her markets. There is already a wide feeling there that England can only save herself and prevent starvation or emigration among the working people by following the example of this country and adopting the protective tariff policy. Indeed, I think she will be compelled to do so." Miss Cleveland's Book. The publishers of Miss Cleveland's book announce that it is now in its twelfth edition and from the present outlook 50,000 copies is a reasonable estimate of its probable sale. Miss Cleveland has received an autograph letter from the Empress of Russia requesting that the book be translated into the Russian language.

The writer says she admires the work and makes the request on behalf of her country-women. This work is now being done. It is also in process of translation into German, French and Italian. These translations are all made because of earnest requests, so general as to become demands. From Italy there were letters written by the legation asking for it.

The Rush for Grant's Memoirs. NEW YORK, Aug. advance orders for Gen. Grant's new book are already ahead of the immense first edition that is in process of publication now. It is said that 300,000 sets have been ordered, and thefirst volume will not appear until December.
