I8B5.1 The downfall of Oscar Wilde may bring disaster to many who have not deserved it. It will be more sad than strange if it harms one who was, to some extent, his protege. I refer to Aubrey Beardsley. I did not exactly go to Beardsley to scoff and remain to pray; but after I came to know him I told him frankly that I went to him believing him to be a clever ass and considered him a genius when I prepared to leave. Probably no young artist who does not aim at humor has been so heartily and universally provocative of mirth as Beardsley; probably no man but Oscar each matters are granted more spaca in the public prints than parliamentary proceedings are, the course of events was interesting 1 .. All asp-eed that Beardsley ivas a criminal —that he had sinned against art. One claimed that bis pictures were indecent. That was denied, and calm investigation proved that they were not. Another shouted that his blacks and whites were inartistic and unlovely. England's greatest -writer on such matters rose up and proved that they were fine. A third exclaimed against his "drawing"' (a technical expression; the claim was that his figures were distorted and out of human semblance and proportion). Beardsley himself stepped forward and demonstrated that it was anatomically and scientifically correct. By and by all these things were admitted, but still the critics cursed, and I do not -wholly blame them. But after they had cursed they kept on looking at his pictures and kept on writing about them, for the most part, with a vague indignation. And, of course, the public kept on buying. AUBJ4JDY BEAJiDSLEY. Wilde (whose name is not a pleasant one to mention) has been so generously damned by people who pride themselves on having "sense." . But while tho public has laughed, Beardsley has had a smile himself, not the less merry because it was in his sleeve. Tho joke was this: They damned and they ridiculed him, but—they bought his pictures. lieardsley is only twenty-one years old now, ao it was not many years ago that ho began his -work. "My family was desperately poor in a commonplace way," said he. ''Our struggles were the struggles of the million. Vulgarly, ends would not meet, no matter how hard we pulled on them." That was misery. Ho was a singular kind of child, I fancy not at aU rough and road)-; inclined to bo bored by other boys and fond of socking solitude and books. lie is still singular—very singular. But his oddities are not affectation, and if he is a bit conceited it is pardonable. It is something of an achievement for a youth of twenty-one, whoso family "was desperately poor," to have reached an income of £4,000 a year by making black marks on white paper. Tho newspapers have had a great deal to say about Beardsley during tho last two years. Ho was, so to speak, born in America about twelve months ago, when the first number of a monthly volume, bound in glaring cloth, burdened by "Tho Yellow Book" for name and published BEAKDSLEY SKETCHED BY JHUSELF. from "The Bodley Head," sailed over seas. Its literature was not extraordinary, but its illustrations (which began, with a strange design, upon the cover) were. They were distinctly new. Graceful curves and startling effects in black and white were their characteristics. The people in them stopped just short of grotesqueness, but were ever graceful. Their faces were marked with a sensuality thnt just dodged lechery. Their most surprising feature was that they did not offend. One felt that ho was" being outraged in gazing at them, vet knew he was not. Folks were puz- aled so they laughed. Beardsley's pictures were* such as an impossible Jap might have drawn had he been impossibly Anglicised. The critics cursed tho'man who made them, yet were prone to insert between their excoriations clauses which annulled them. The first glance at the strange pictures made Art rise up in insulted wrath; the second proved that no cause existed for complaint., except that Aubrey Beardsley had done a new thing and done it with consistency. Over here, where i Thus originated his road to his success; I the road which was labelled "Fad" and i which was full of bowlders. ! Beardsley had up to this time been the most unimportant youth, in London. He had no position, no standing, no money, no anything, except such education as he had gathered in a simple schooling and from omnivorous reading. His family, as I have said, was very poor. He speaks as if 'it was the kind of poverty which makes folk sour and resentful. I asked him one day why he never chose the picturesque Bide of poverty for his pictures. ' ; OhF' said he, "poverty is never artistic. It may be picturesquely horrible, but it can never be artistic." Then he added: "I have had too much of it in my own life to permit me to feel for it. I could nover sympathize with it enough to do it well. It horrifies and disgusts me." Ho says this very" earnestly, in his q\iccr little way, and it is reasonably certain that it really pains him to talk about it. During his youth, and while, lie was Burrouuded by this poverty, he had no pleasures except what he got from books. When he was twelve ho read French easily, and long before most bright boys have really mastered much of anything he had achieved ancient French and even Spanish blank letter. He drew pictures sometimes for fun, but looked forward to writin g. Several very long and very elaborate novels were built in a few years only to be thrown into the fire because he felt certain that they were very bad. As they doubtless were. This sort of life was not, however, entirely practicable in the midst of his family's poverty, Beardsley had to go to work. He was fifteen when this necessity arose, and he accepted it ro- bclliousiy* Five shillings a week was what the architect who employed him valued his services at, and the five shillings were a part of the poverty. It was the work in the architect's office which made Beardsley ' think seriously of picture-making as a career. The fantastic forms in stone which are a part of architectural art pleased him. He forgave .the T square for the gargoyle's sake. But in the meantime ho was not permitted to forget the T square. The architect drilled accuracy into him mercilessly and valuably. It is doubtless that training to which Beardsley is indebted for his correct drawing. The architect made a careful draughtsman of him. He could not make him abandon his love of strange and uncanny forms, but lie did force him in to recognition of the value of exactness. By and by his wages were increased from five shillings 4o seven shillings. The two extra shillings were unexpected. Beardsley argued that they would be useless in alleviating his poverty, and that they might be useful in helping him learn to draw. So he went to an artist of some note and told him that he wanted to study with him once a week. "lean pay yon two shillings for vour trouble," said he quietly. Tho 'artist tested him and saw that there was something in him. He laughed at the two shillings and offered to teach the boy for nothing. But Beardsley would not consent to that. "I must pav you my two shilling's," he persisted. So that arrangement was made. Thus Beardsley began to study art in :the conventional way. lie drew from casts and worked in a life class and did in all things as other art students did. But one night after he had gone home he sat idlv clown and made a sketch. It wna not meant for anytb ing in particular. It has been said that it was meant for a Japanese prince, but it was not. There was nothing Japanese about it. except that it was done quickly and boldly, and that it was a picture of a man in strange robes and a big sword. standing on a curved line. A few strokes of the pen had done it, and its background was broken by a queer blotch of dead black, which represented nothing, but which was of unusual and pleasing design. The thing was entirely accidental, but it pleased Beardsley, and he left it when he went to bed so that he could see it as soon as he awoke in the morning. . When morning came it still pleased him. It surprised him as much as others of his pictures have since surprised the public. He tried the same plan with other figures, and turned out many which were absurd but attractive. Then it was that he saw a big thing. Then it was that he perceived tho entrance to the road to success—the road which is named "Fad." He took his new and strange pictures, with their attractive, thick-lipped faces and their daring but amazingly artistic blacks and whites, to Oscar Wilde. That erratic genius recognized at once that here were pictures more abnormal than his sentiments: stranger than his most distorted notion: catchier than his most empty phrase; more likely to be speedily absorbed by a novel-loving public than the very silliest sentence in his wittiest and silliest philosophy. So \Vilt',c gave Aubrey Beardsley "Salome" to illustrate. When "Salome" was printed, with a hundred or more of JJoardsley's fantastic pictures, Beardsley got more notoriety out of it than Wilde did. He had entered on the road of "fad." Everybody talked about him, cursing him or laughing at him, and a few admired him, some because they were of the kind who really worship fads, as most folks pretend to, and some because thcj 7 actually saw tho almost superhuman cleverness of the whole affair; because they realized that Beardsley, finding that the Strand would not notice him if he simply wore a plain stovepipe hat, had found it practical to attract attention by sticking feathers in his tile. Everybody wore a silk hat, but no one else wore feathers in it. Then Beardsley, .with the aid and abetment of one John Lane, another enterprising Englishman, started the "Yellow Book." Tbey called it a book because other monthlies were called magazines. They bound it in cloth because other magazines had paper covers. Beardsley made all the pictures for it, and between them they gathered some unimportant literature together to fill the space which the pictures did QUEER-LOOKING SULKY. Thftt Iv A SAMPLE OF BEABDSLEY'S POSTER WORK. not occupy. Then they mailed copies of the first number to almost aU the important newspapers of the world. Every enterprising journalist who saw it snapped at it eagerly. It was something new, and a novelty is a rare thing. In England it attracted all sorts of comment. In America all the big newspapers gave it a lot of space. One or two reprinted every picture in it. "The Yellow Book," and through it Aubrey Beardsley, had achieved the most -splendid advertisement ever secured by any publication, and the advertisement had cost nothing. Since then both of them have been very prosperous in dee d. Povertv has fled from the Beardsley family. So far from finding it impossible to make ends meet, they now live in a very handsome house, and life is easy. The Cntze for Crepoa. Women have positively gone crepen mad. No new stuff can hope for the slightest attention unless it has crepon characteristics to recommend it. Even cotton goods are woven in humps and ridges and wavy undulations, and all the silks and wools with any claim to popularity, and oven the airy fairy chiffons—which might have been supposed to be lovely enough in themselves—have crepon surfaces. Ribbons have caught the craze and have ridged edges. So has veiling-, and frightfully unbecoming it is, too, giving its wearer's features a blurred, worry effect, as if they were seen in a very poor mirror. When the crepon craze reaches mackintoshes and overshoes it will have attained, and its decline may confidently be expected. to decline. Its InTontor I« of the Opinion >VII1 AccomplUh tVonden. A horse-lover in Hartford, Coun., has devised a'"snlfcy that may accomplish wonders in the development of speed in trotting horses. It- is a rather oddlooking: arrangement, as may bo ''seen from the picture printed herewith, but its conception is based upon several very important considerations. In running against time the horse should have as nearly absolute freedom of wind and limb as possible, besides being relieved of draught. In other words, he should be as nature designed him. and the inventor of this sulky claims that it more nearly accomplishes vViads-s!- iipril Shower! Jl TUB XEW SULKY. that end than any device yet made known. As shown in the- cut the driver's'seat is overlho horse's hips, with the wheels a trifle in advance of the middle of tho animal's body. The central upright, extending from the wheel to the seat, is on a slight incline and must necessarily help propel the wheels, thus reducing the draught to the minimum. A surcingle supports and steadies the shafts, and straps running from it to the pockets that inclose the ends of the shafts keep the sulky from running faster than the horsu. The only necessities in the way of harness are the breastplate, the sur- cingle and the bridle, leaving the utmost freedom to the shoulders and the chest, as well as to the lungs by reason of less tightening of the girth. If the horse rears or otherwise misbehaves, the sulky must go up with him, and if he makes a side-wise movement, he must land the sulky where he lands himself, with no danger of dishing- tho wheel. The inventor says that no "training 1 down" of overweights will be necessary when his vehicle is used, as the heavier the weight, within a reasonable limit, the more easily tho vehicle will be propelled. He also says that a horse may be more easily controlled from the new location of the scat than when tho driver sits back of and a trifle lower than the horse. One of these sulkies is now building, and several horsemen, who have seen the plans, think very favorably of it. • nnny ot.honv:r,u boasJifal compl --, ' M i y .I'lOto horrid bietuishost Hp>,j :.d *'i\!JCt:J;* tlioy may K> romovod it •'iiovi ;i'.y; i;i;?*v \vu*oly ksoxvi JOSEPHINE ACE BLEACH _„„ tlirO'vi^Lout tl»o Innu.

THE GREAT 3ot!i l>ny. German Account or the btiirrr nap;. A German periodical has the following story as to the origin of the Stars and Stripes: The idea originated with a Dane named Marker. He was born on tho Isla.ud Si,. Croix, of the Danish West Indies, where his father nnd grand father had lived. In 1775 he left his native island and proceeded to Philadelphia, lie was among the first to join » company of volunteers for American liberty and independence. For valor shown at Oriskany lie was elected captain, and to show his gratitude he designed a. flag, in whoso upper corner he applied the thirteen stars, emblematic of the thirteen original states of the union. This was tho first occasion upon which the "star spangled banner" was unfurled. Tho original flag of Capt. Marker is supposed to be in existence in some national collection of relics of the war of tho revolution. , produce* the above remit » In SO <Iny». v«powerfully And quickly.
