Mr. Uerbert Adams, of this clty'"ill model one, which will be cast by Mr. Williams, and Macmonnies, the Amor lean sculptor, will model the other In Paris and have It cast there. Tw,o of the doors were to have been modeled by Mr. Warner, but his death, which was due to an accident last summer,! occurred before he had the model fur The second'.dowr completed, and the uorjt as then given to Mr. Adams, who waa, familiar with Mr. Warrens ideas and -aim. lbe uwor which has been completed andinaa been sent to Washington to be set .constat of three parts, the tym-pauiun. wnicb fills tue arch in Uie door-May and tue tuuves of tne door wnich suig to tbngnt and the leiu iacn is of sxuiust aoliu broiixe, aud ail are covered wtlu Dgures auu ornamental work in oa-relief Toe doorway Is eight feet in widih, and from Uie sul 10 the tup of the arch it is fourteen feet .n Iie.guu The tympanum cast solid ; eacn ualf of the door was Mi4 in, a Urge panel in the middle ot eaco and a small one above and below each ct me large panels. Kacn of the large panels tour teet eight inches In length nd nils up more man one-naif of mis naif of the door. The small panels are tueieiy for the purpose of decoration and' to rmpaaaiae tne taect of the work on int large panels. The arrangement is unusual and very effective. Tne tympanum is niied with figures and is the most attractive part of the composition. The centre figure on it is "Trad'uon." and grouped aoout her are aborig.nea representing tne tour great families of the earth. The figures are alt ideal except that .of the American Indian, woicn is an exact reproduction Of .

At the bottom of the right-band half of the door .s the word "Memory," and on rhe eft-hand half the word "Imagination, the elements that go to create tradition the foundation of history. The Apollo-like figure that symbolizes Imagination is grand in lis conception, and 'recalls to the mind the Apollo alusa-getea of the Vatican, its robes and lyre being some hat similarly placed, although it leads one to think that Its creator1 Intended it as an allegorical figure of Hecitacon and Song. Memory, the figure of a widow holding a warrior's helmet. Is on the other large panel. The figure. If anything. Is stronger than that which depicts Imagination, and claims more attention from the casual observer, although in reality It is1 no more Impressive. The lower small panels are In keeping . with the large ones above them, and the 'decorative sprays that encircle the panels and form the framework of the door consist of sprays of oak. pine and laurel leaves, and honeysuckle, tulips and wheat Taking the door In its - entirety, its originality of conception la striking and Its fitness for the purpose for which it was created Is apparent. The composition Is graceful and easy, although done In fullface relief, and gives one the impress Ion that be Is looking upon statues with an1 attractive background. From whatever point one views the door, the effect is satisfactory. Tradition, which la handing down the legends of the olden time. Is re-enforced by the subtler force of the human mind. Imagination; and Memory Is holding fast to that which both of the others have created and passed on to. her. The Interior face of the door Is simple. It consists of bosses for adornment, and has no designs or scroll work upon It. At the time that air. Warner undertook the work of modeling the two doors that were assigned to him. it was Intended to have them both in place before the coming 4th of March, but his untimely death prevented this. The . door that has been finished will be placed within a few weeks, and the others, It Is thought, will be In place before the opening of the short session of Congress In December, 1897.

Hopklnson Smith, author, architect, painter and public entertainer, will come to Louisville January 25 and deliver a lecture at the Female High School under the auspices of the Alumni Association. Mr. Smith's subject will be "American Illustrators." F. Hopklnson Smith Is a typical Southerner In appearance tall, finely formed, with gray mustache, and makes a favorable Impression Instantly. His manner of reading is characterized by a restless energy and an abundance of gesture, which are very eaptlvating. The clearest and keenest intelligence and good taste characterize Mr. Smith's style. His eyes fascinate you. looking out with a dark luster from under heavy black brows. No man could be more absolutely methodical than the creator of "CoL Carter," and of "Tom Grogan." who rises early, builds lighthouses and viaducts until 4 In the afternoon at his office a't Park Place. New York city, where be Is Francis H. Smith, then becomes F. Hopklnson Smith until 7 p. m.. and In that time does his literary work, and goes abroad every summer to rest and paint. Mr. Smith In his public reading follows no plan but his own, and has been instructed by no teacher. His voice Is full and pleasant, his manner vivacious and Intense, and there in in his way of putting things and interpreting bis own books a certain magnetism which never fails to hold and entertain his audience. He works In many thrilling stories of adventure, changing quickly to the humorous or pathetic. Turning; his attention more particularly to art. he became well known for his work In water-colors and charcoal. His tasre for art appears to have been inherited. His great-grandfather. Francis Hopklnson, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, was an amateur In water-colors; his grandfather. Judge Joseph Hopklnson. was the first President of the Academy of Fine Arts, In Philadelphia, and also an amateur painter. Mr. 8mlth began to paint when a boy. and although his art work has been done mainly In the intervals of a busy life, he has attained the first rank amang American painters In water-colors. He is favorably known to magazine readers by his illustrations, and has also written several popular books. It was not, however, until the publication of "CoL Carter of Cartersvllle" that he became a Womlnent figure in the literary world.

Although some of the scenes and incidents approach perilously near to burlesque, and the Improbability of some of the situations Is not sufficiently disguised. It is undoubtedly one of the cleverest and most Interesting achievements of recent American fiction.

Sine the Apache chief, Geronlmo. has been taught habits and manners of bis white brethren, at the Indian prison and school in Alabama, there has been no redskin who has had so much attention as Apache Kid. For some six years he has made sanguinary history along the Rio Grande and the Mexican border. A recent report by the War Department at Washington shows that the depredations of this unique savage outlaw have cost. Uncle Sam altogether over $410,000. and. that troops In President Diss's Government across the border have been harassed by the Kid since 1893. when Kid became a more permanent dweller in the Republic of Mexico. At different times there have been as many as 400 trained soldiers of the plains, both on the American and the Mexl-; can sides of the Rio Grande, in search of ; Apache Kid. while military scouts and United States marshals and Govern- ment police officers by the score have labored and schemed long and vainly for the arrest of the Indian, and the attainment of the prize of $6,000 offered for the taking of the outlaw. There has been a good deal written about Apache Kid that Is no true, says a writer in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. The stories that have many believers are wild, weird tales, and, except for the fact that Apache Kid and his followers have committed many of the most dreadful murders and cruel thieveries on the border between the Union and Mexico, there is not a word of truth in them. The truth, as told among the reliable army officers and citizens who live adjacent to the San Carlos Indian reservation, who remember the villain well, and who have a dozen different photographs of the savage, is that he is a snort, stocky, full-blooded Apache. He is wiry and bold, and has never had an hour's education In any Government or private school. He never went out of Arizona until he became an outlaw, and never dressed in any garb of civilization, except the cast-on clothing of people in Phoenix and Mesa, who took an interest in the lad some twelve or . thirteen years ago, when he was the best arrow and rifle shot on the San Carlos reservation. He is remembered by some of the non-commisaioned of- ' fleers in the United States army in the Southwest as a parties pant in the campaign against Gerommo. when he was a sergeant of Indian scouts under Crook, and those who believe that the. scouts didn't fool Crook may also believe that Sergeant Kid rendered valuable service In that campaign. He Is skillful In Icdian warfare, which Is busawhack-lng; a dead shot at short range, like most Apaches; brave anywhere, except in the open and In the dark, where all his tribe are cowards, and he has seen enough of the ways of troopers to be able to outwit and keep away from them. In March of 1888. Apache "Kid" asked one Albert Se bring, who was chief of the scouts at the San Carlos agency, for leave of absence from the troops. The Kid said he wanted to go and perform a pious tribal duty, and that he. would be spit upon by his relatives and friends if he did not fulfill the traditional custom of the tribe. A Pima Indian had killed Kid's grandfather, and, although the old gentleman was not of much account, and his loss was his family's gain, it was imperative that Kid should even up the score by killing the Indian. Chief Scout Sebrlng ought to have known that If Kid had It in his mind to kill the other fellow, that other feUow's doom was sealed, leave or no leave. But Sebrlng comes of a race that blithely and without twinge of conscience, slits the weasand of the absolute stranger, at command of bfm who has brass buttons on his coat and bullion, on his shoulder, and holds it wicked, savage and altogether improper to kill at command of ten centuries of ancestors, backed up by the authority of whatever gods or supreme being those ancestors had the pious Ingenuity to Invent. Wherefore, the Chief of Scouts refused leave of absence and made a moral and calm talk to Kid concerning; the awful wickedness of his purpose. No one among the older soldiers In Indian campaigns, who knew the circumstances either at the time or since, was surprised that Kid escaped from the troops one night, and soon shot and killed the murderer of the grandfather savage. Along In the following June, Kid came back, and, being immediately put under arrest, was taken to Capt. D. E. Pierce's tent. Immediately there was excitement among the Indian friends of Kid. and several shots were fired through the canvas into the tent. Amid tne confusion Kid recovered bis carbine, sprang aside. Jumped upon a horse behind a comrade, and the mutinous scouts fled, after, shooting an army corporal in the leg. The mutineers went toward Old Mex-ica. killed two white men In the Gal-luro mountain passes on the way, but were so closely pursued that - they doubled on their tracks and returned to the reservation. All were arrested. Some were hanged for murder, and Kid and four scouts were courtmartialed and sent to Alcatras. To the surprise of some military officers President Cleveland soon pardoned Kid and his companions, and they returned to Arizona. In 1889 indictments for murder were found against Kid and several other In-, dlans. and they were arrested by Capt. Bullis, agent at San Carlos, and delivered to the civil authorities of Arizona, Sheriff Glen Reynolds. Deputy Holmes and a teamster named Middleton took Kid. seven other Indians and a Mexican, and started In a wagon for Yuma, where the Indian murderers were to have been hanged. One day early in November of 1889 the outfit was tolling slowly ever a hard road. To relieve the horses the Sheriff made his prisoners walk up a steep hill, all but one. who was lame, or pretended to be. The Sheriff walked In front; the prisoners followed, shackled In couples; Deputy Holmes walked behind them, and the wagon, containing Middleton and one prisoner, brought up the ' rear. There was a bottle of whisky along, and the officers became careless. At a concerted signal the prisoners hurled themselves bodily upon the two officers and bore them to the ground, and the Indian In the wagon seized Middle ton's pistol and shot him In the face. The officers were beaten to death with . stones, Middleton was shot again and left for dead, and the Mexican made his escape before the Indians got rid of their shackles. They took the shackle keys from the dead Sheriff's pocket and released themselves, and alo robbed his body of a gold watch and $300 in cash. Armed with the officers' weapons, the Apaches fled Into the mountains. That was Kid's original band of renegades, a lot of cut-throats who knew their lives were forfeited, and that any additional crimes could not aggravate their offense or Its punishment. They raided back and forth across the Mexican line, killing white men and Mexicans, steal- . Ing stock, harassing the troops and creating; a panic in Arizona and New Mexico. The eight Indians did not stay with one another very long. The. cavalry from Fort Bowie was In hot pursuit, and over 100 cowboys and settlers Joined In the chase for the fugitives. Close pursuit forced the Indiana to scatter, and during the next two and a half years they one by one drifted back to the outskirts of the reservation. They have told stories, which have been verified, of the murders that Kid prompted ampng settlers, both north and south of the Rio Grande and the Rincon range of mountains. Old Cocbese. who died in prison at Alcatras. often told of how in one day he was forced to participate in the staying of a family of five Mexican in the Dragoon mountains, in Southern and W -"ST i IPiniflFI.

The method of attack In this case waa to shoot down the driver of the big lumbering wagon In the lonely mountain pass and then to kill the three children at leisure, and later, after having outraged the horrified wife, to cut her throat, as the Kid said that saved ammunition and there was no noise about the Job. The bodies were rifled and the horses stolen. Cochese said he knew personally of at least twelve whites (principally Mexicans) who died st Kid's hands, and that he himself sickened at the reckless How of blood and ' escaped from his ruthless chief. Several men were slaughtered when It was evl- A LOUISVILLE WINTER GIRL. (Drawn for the Art Supplement by Thomas Harvey Peake.) dent they had no money or personal effects worth stealing. In July. 189L Kid, with rare stealth, by night, traveled slowly down from the Impenetrable fastnesses of the Galluro Mountains, across the cactus desert In Southern Arizona, northward to the Gila river country, where he hid for days on the outskirts of the San Carlos reservation. In some way he got word to a former girl companion of his, and she went out one night to visit Kid in secret. He bad ready an extra horse, stolen from a ranch near by. and he forced her to fly with him back to the mountains. The girl, now twenty-four years of age, was compelled to live with Kid and his gang for over a year. She returned to the family wickiup on the reservation, after suffering severe privations, and at the risk of her life. Hundreds of people In Phoenix and through the Gila river countrv knew her. The story she tells of the cruelty and devilish villainy of Kid In the years 1891 and 1892 is startling, and all of It has . been proved true. Several times, when preparations were made for the slaughter of a party of ranchmen or settlers that had been observed approaching the hiding place of Kid and his -gang in the mountain passes and canyons, she was tied to a tree and a bag put over her bead, so that she could neither escape nor see In what direction the murderers had gone. Then a day or two later,, when the savages saw that they were not followed by troops or avengers of the crime, 'he bloody-banded party would stealthily return to free her, only to force her to accompany them to new scenes of robbery j.nd murder. One or two of uer tales cencern the killing of women and children, who were always reserved un-' til the last for putting to death, because they could do no harm to he savages, and they might tell some uews . to th-slr slayers. Although the Indlnn girl could see nothing, the screaming appeals for their lives and for mercy at the hands of their blood-thirsty cap- ' tors reached her ears as she was fastened to a tree. As for Kid himself, he Is wandering along the border, killing people once in awhile and getting credit for a whole lot of deviltry that drunken cowboys and Mexicans are guilty of. He has few companions, the fate of the rest ot the band having made him wary of consorting -with his own people too freely, and keeps out of the way of the troops that periodically go up to hunt him. Kid Is not raiding for fun. He is a fugitive with a price on his head $6,000 Is the market value of his head and he will kill rather than take chances of being caught. He is a literal Indian Ishmael. He has use for cartridges, provisions, money and sometimes for horses, and be takes what be wants. If the man who has what he wants Is likely to object to giving it up, Kid will kill him without doubt. A year ago last August Kid was Identified on the Animas ranch. In the southern part of New Mexico. He was getting away from troops at the time. A cattle ranchman drove a fine team right past Kid's ambush, but waa not molested. An bour later one of the ranchman's cowboys, who was hunting deer, had the bad luck to get in Kid's way PICTURESQUE (From an Original Water Color t i -: -X- f ' V' ,r i ' ' ,;'-' ; - 'i - I i In such a manner that Kid could not avoid meeting him, and the Kid shot the cowboy. The recent International party ef surveyors, soldiers and laborers who went the full, length of the border from Kl Paso to San Diego and re-established the boundary line, reports several reasons for believing K14 waa then living (a year ago) In the mountains adjoining the Cooopah Indian country on the east. He generally gave the party a wide berth, but they are sure he could not withstand the temptation to run off two of their- best horses one night. ROSES AT FORTY 00LLARS. . Among the floral decorations of the holiday season one plant has been especially prominent, and will probably continue to be used conspicuously throughout the winter. This is the polnsettla. With Its brilliant scarlet and green, this presents a most cheerful appearance, and is particularly appropriate to adorn cold weather festivities. The plant is a shrub of Mexican origin, and its usual height la from two to three feet. The true flowers are small yeiluig. blossoms which make slight show, but the chief beauty of the polnsettla lies In the many leaflike bracts, of a vivid scarlet, which surround these yellow flowers. The bracts are almost as large as the leaves of the plant, and of about the same shape. One "flower," as it Is commonly called, meaning thereby the cluster of tiny yellow blossoms with the bracts around them, grows on esch stalk, and constitutes a plant by itself. The flower measures from six Inches to a foot across, some varieties having double rows of the red bracts. If proper care Is .given it, a plant will keep Its blossom for a month, and remain fresh and blight-looking during that time. It must be well-watered, and protected from cold draughts. After the flower has been cut the plant will bloom again if it is restored to the moist, artificial heat of the greenhouse. A florist would probably be most successful in producing this result. The cut flowers wUl keep fresh for about a week In a vase of water. The Georgia pine, with its huge but xaceful plumes, the needles of which measure a foot in length. Is new and popular among this winter's greens. Great branches are mercilessly cut from the trees In the South, and shipped in large quantities to this city, where they are broken up still further. If necessary, to suit the kind of decoration desired. The needles of the Georgia pine have a curious habit of growing directly from the branch along Its entire length, thus forming a kind of sheath which almost hides the bark from view. In Its general appearance a branch of the pine is not unlike some of the finer varieties of palms. All cut flowers have been unusually expensive In the last few weeks, owing chiefly to the holiday demand for them. They have already begun to be cheaper, however, and will decline rapidly to their standard prices. American Beauty roses have been an exception to the general rule. In the reason of costliness this winter. From $12 a dozen, the regular price for the longest-stemmed flowers, they have gone up with startling rapidity, until they reached the climax a week or: two ago. at $40 a dozen. This was due principally to the unusual scarcity of the flowers. The season of stormy, dark weather early last month so affected the production of the blossoms that florists found It almost Impossible to get them st any price. This, more even than the Christmas demand, increased their cost, and people who Insisted upon having them had to make up their minds to pay dearly for the luxury. Now American Beauties are bringing $26 and $30 a dozen for the best specimens, and If the weather Is blight and favorable the price will probably drop further In the next few weeks. Two new Ideas this season serve to Increase materially the expense of presenting flowers. To correspond with the latest fashion, they must be sent either in extremely artistic and decorative boxes, tied with ribbons fully six Inches wide, or In deep vases, of the real or Imitation Bohemian glass. The' boxes are triumphs of daintiness, and the greeo-and-eold of the vases seems to bring out with especial charm the beauty of any flower. -4 7-7 -1 HOLLAND. by F. Hopklnson Smith.) ST FY - 5 9 t
