You will rind her articles a joy and an inspiration if you follow them ing around every time man and maid clasp hands, was never very widely advertised as an individual of really first magnitude, until Juanita Hamel, the young artist of St. Louis, Mo. came to New York, and began sketching him in hundreds of her romantic cartoons, which are published in newspapers all over the country.

hen Juanita commenced drawing 1 beautiful girls, and handsome men, Cupid toddled into several of the pictures, and his instant popularity made him one of the chief characters pictured by the pen. Miss Hamel is a natural artist. In a recent interview she said: "Frequently I have been asked how I happened to take up art. As a matter of fact art took me up. I was raised, in an atmosphere of art.

I remember the work done by my of the Civil War time, with the atmosphere of real romance, and this with the stories of adventure and hardships endured by the pioneers of the middle west imbued me with the desire to paint. "I landed my first job on the St. Louis Times, and covered all sorts of assignments, from murder trials to interviewing Mrs. Woodrow Wilson. Then I went to the Chicago Herald, where I wrote fiction in serial and short story form.

Another short step and I was in New York drawing for Newspaper Feature Service. One of the priceless rewards of Miss Hamel's work is a letter from Secretary of Treasury McAdoo, which was the only form of reward given to the three winners of America's war cartoon poster contest. Miss Hamel ranked with Brown and Orr, tlie two Chicago artists. JUANITA HAMEL ANNETTE BRADSHAW Sitting in the studio of Annette Bradshaw, surrounded by crayon studies and oil paintings of well known people, it is hard at first to realize that the painter is the same Annette Bradshaw whose delightful social cartoons, "Feminisms" and "Her Problems" have been so favorably received.

This charming naturalness comes from Miss Bradshaw's newspaper training, for she was a "newspaper artist" long before the public demand for her paintings led her to lay card bbard aside and devote much of her time to canvas. Miss Bradshaw was born in San Francisco, and even before she had finished high school, showed so decided an ability for "making pictures" that she was allowed to follow the bent of her inclination and devote herself to the study of art. When she was about eighteen became connected with the illustrations, caricatures and, sometimes, cartoons but all the time she worked and studied to realize her ambition to become a portrait painter. After a while Miss Bradshaw came to New York where she worked for ten years for various metropolitan dailies, doing news illustrations of the big events of the day that lent themselves to vivid portrayal.

During this tjme her deft pencil drew most of the famous characters brought into the focus of the newspaper lime-light, from Nan Patterson to Harry Thaw and alternating these "heart-interest" assignments with opening days at horseshows, notable weddings and similar spectacular events. All the time Miss Bradshaw was leading a 'double art life--that is she was doing a certain amount of work each day in her Tip-town studio and was rapidly winning a place as a portrait painter, the work to wm jh she now gives practically all of her time save that which she devotes lu her "Feminisms" and "Her "I cannot entirely sever myself from the old life in black and white and the occasional smell of printer's ink," she declares, "and the social cartoons sort of connecting Miss Bradshaw's newspaper work has, among other things, made her an expert in fashions, but her inherent love of caricature and her unusual sense of humor has led her to make the lay figures, upon which her fashions are displayed pictorially, really human--just --such folks as one sew stopping or at theatres, or in uptown hotels or restaurants and with all the amusing idiosycrasies which even fashionably dressed people show at times, A.
