The following possesses an interest to th« Jiturnai arid its readers, because the case :»«f preat Vulue from a mvdicul point of view, awl further because it is sworn to and its Anth absolutely proven. The ciise described -jf that of the duugliter of L. L.

MISS GANNON. dows won for themselves early recognition. Miss Armstrong was born in Ital3'. Her -father was consul p-cnoral at Koine for many years, so that the very earliest period of her lifo was enriched b.v art associations that have proved of' lasting value. Her first painting- was Uono when she was a bit of a child. She wrote a little story and illustrated it with.a scries of colored sketches that were very clever for a girl of ten years. Prom that time she has never ffivon up her ambition to be an artist in the highest sense of the word. She has studied at the Art Students' league, and once, for a short time, with Irvinff .branch of ' work to /which sKe has devoted most • study—the designing ' oi cartoons for stained glass windows and mosaic? decoration- She is a very quiet, retiring woman, and indeed did not exhibit henvork'at all until after her marriage to Mr. Lamb, who is a student of art history as well as an artist of note. In speaking of herself, Mrs. Lamb said: "lily first serious work was begun when I was . about sixteen. Then followed years of digging- and plodding, and, although my work was then done entirely from love of art, and not. professionally, my grounding was as thorough and my studying as conscientious as if the thought of public approval had been ever before me. "Since my marriage I have continued mv studies, and my interest in art has increased rather than diminished. Most of my work is now done in collaboration with my husband." In speaking of the payment made to men and women for work of equal merit, Mrs. Lamb said: "I~believe it is fast becoming the rule to have one established scale of prices for both sexes. I have found, in the illustrating work that I have done for such houses as the Century and Harper's, that for each stj'le of work there is a set price per page, which is never deviated from except in the case of an artist who is famous enougli to demand special rates, but then it is a question of genius, not sex. I regard it as a mistake," she continued, "for women to aim to work exactly along the same lines as men. I do not believe there is any difference in the quality of talent possessed by ' men and \vc~.cn, but there is a marked f diirei-L-nue is the character of the tal- j ent. Women will do belter work when : tliis is recognized." ' Mrs. Lesley Dush-Brown, the wife o: the sculptor, lias a charming little .studio iu the artist's quarter in Car negie hall. Mrs. Brown is a Philadelphian, and her early art education was gained at the Pennsylvania art school. Later she studied in Paris, where, for three years, she gave her whole attention to developing her lalent for portrait painting as well as mural decorations. Mrs. lirown is a decided brunette, with masses of dark hair. She is thoroughly interested in her art, and has a Keeping the Creatures Alive Is a Delicate Task. An EnEllihman Who Ha* Vltltod Erery Snake-Infested Country to Study the Reptllea—Aulited by HI* Yonnff SOD. MBS. BUSII-UKOWS'S-STUDIO. B. 'Wiles, but rnost of her practical instruction has been received from her father. She is patient as well as ambitious, reads much, especially in the line of art, and studies the world's best work in the art centers abroad as well as at home. Her work is strongly marked by the spirit of the Italian renaissance, yet not enough to roar its orig-inality either in conception or execution. She is very fond of out-of-doors life, and enjoys nothing- better than watching the Yale football team distinguish .tsclf; but even when heartily interested in the game she is always on tho ilcrt for a fine pose or a spirited bit of muscular action, to seize and jot down m her sketch book. Her work is done almost entirely without the use of models. She masses ind avrang-ea clrnjpery in various ways ibonther studio, and then makes a SUSS UA>"D. variety of studies for use in the cartoons. She has a very novel way of sometimes posing for herself, arranging- ;hc drapery on her own figrire and then sketching herself from a mirror. Some of her finest work was clone for the Gould Memorial church at Kox- bury, N. Y.. for the Church of the IToly Communion of New'York and for St. Paul's at Poughkeepsie. The subject depicted in this last window is the vision of the ang-el appearing to St. Paul at sea. The conception is entirely original and trom its combination of beauty und streng-th has elicited the almost unanimous praise of artists and critics,Mrs-Charles K. Lamb—or EUa Con- | quiet, earnest way of speaking of her . ambitions that is' in delightful contrast with the trashy "art for art's sake" talk with which the studio air resounds nowada/ys. "My time in Paris," Mrs. Brown said, recently, "was passed in the ateliers of Eoulang-er and Lefebre. I have made ,a special study of portrait painting, but my favorite work is mural decoration. These cartoons on the wall," Mrs. Brown added, pointing with her mahl- stick to a series of life-size figures adorning one side of her studio, "were done for the decoration of the music- room of a private house, and were ax- hibitcd in the woman's building at the world's fair. "My real studio, the one where I work with my husband, is in the country. It is a dear old place," she said, looking affectionately at a fine large photograph of one corner of her pet room. It was a very pretty picture, the walls hung thick with,tapestries, a/high 'shelf in Gorman style crowded with fine bas-reliefs, and for the central feature the figure of Mrs. Brown at her easel, palette and brushes in hand. Two of the busiest architects in New York to-da.3' are women, young women, and women who have established themselves well in'their profession. They work along the same linfts as their professional brethren, and receive the same rate of payment. Miss Mary Xcvans Gannon and her partner, Miss'Alice J. Hand, who probably. constitute the only firm of women architects in the United States, are decidedly of the opinion that they owe their success to the fact that they offer just as pood work to the public as do the men. and they exact an equal ratio of payment. "We have acted on this basis from the beginning." said Miss Gannon, recently, "and have competed successfully "with first-class architects all over, the*country. We have received the fairest of treatment from both builders and competitors. In man;' instances women cheapen labor- for one another by accepting lower rates than they know their labor to be worth. When the contractor •who recently accepted our tenement house plans asked Miss Hand and myself what payment \ve expected, we replied almost simultaneously: 'Exactly what yom would pay a man for the same design,' and got it." So long as human nature retains its Instinctive dislike to anything' that creeps or crawls, the practice of keeping snakes is not likely to extend far beyond its present limits. Most people, probably, would find it exceedingly difficult to name anyone addicted to this propensity. Dr.-Arthur Stradling, says the London Sketch, declares it to be, in his ease, hereditary. His father was fond of snakes, and his son, nine years of age, is devoted to them and experiences absolutely no fear in their presence. How far the child, who figures in the illustration, will develop his taste remains to be seen; of.the father it may be said that' he has devoted the leisure—enforced leisure, it may have been, some of it, for the .sake of the cause—of a lifetime to the-study of snakes. In pursuit of his study, which he himself calls "ophiomania," he has visited every -snake-infested country of the crlobe—an undertaking accomplished by no other person, probably, with a similar object. Having in the tropics lived in constant and close companionship with serpents, it is not unnatural that at Watford-he should be still surrounded by them. "You surmise that the place is always heated?" says the doctor. "Gas is burning day and night, I use nzlced unvcntilated gas ft,r warmth, and, as von can sec, my reptiles are as healthy as can be. Indeed, ,1 pride nrrself 'upon the fact tint I roar and keep many delicate species which invariably die in zoological gardens and other menageries. That lizard without legs I have had for thirteen years. You say you fancied you heard the gas escaping? Oh, no; that was one of the snakes hissing. He is in a bad temper at being disturbed. Just now I have a particularly good collection of boa-constrictors, but rattlesnakes are my 'first love.' I am just now beginning to adopt my method of cramming 3IASTER STEADYING. universally. Anything, up to twelve or fourteen feet I can manage single- handed, but in dealing with stock above that length I invoke the assistance of my head keeper, my little boy, A bag is of some service to restrain the movements of the body and render it amenable to control—I once got two ribs broken while ma.nipulat- ing a West African pythoness of sixteen feet. The process is not an elegant one; with half a hundrcd- .veight of live, hot snake-Cosh wreathing and writhing and engirdling one, one doesn't expend much effort in keeping up appearances. With shirt sleeves roTled up and stockinged feet. I grasp the creature just behind the head and separate its jaws by gentle pressure with a silver spatula; it's more knack than force, for all snakes are exceed- ngly sensitive about the mouth—a jght tap on the muzzle will ;uro the fiercest of them. Then the assistant pops the lump of meat, dead rat. bird, or whatever the morsel may be, right in among the quivering triple rows of ong, curved teeth—positively quiver- ng and 'walking' with the agitation of inger on the mobile ^jaws—and I push t down to the stomach, first with a. •uler. and then by squeezing upon it with my hands from the outside, a mechanical suasion which requires to b'e maintained for some little time, in order to insure that the item of ailment ;hall remain in statu quo. In the intervals the youngster is not idle and inds plenty of occupation in shifting ,he reptile's coils and disengaging various parts of me from a too close em- jrace. And so we fill the beast up until 10 can bold no more. If we have noth- n<r but meat, a handful of feathers, cinders or some knotted string wound round the lumps supply the place of jones and fur, as far as digestion and nutrition are concerned; and under this regimen of mine, which has now stood ,he test of years, my snakes thrive, and —-in captivity, at least—excel in health, beauty and strength any of those that 'eed themselves. I have much to learn /et. Of course—perhaps, eventually, I shall cram all that come into my, hands vithout waiting to .see whether they are willing to help themselves or not— jut, anvhow, I have succeeded in saving the Jives of those which display .hat singular disposition to suicide by ,otal abstinence manifested by the arge majority of them after capture." Names, of Tost Office*. The oost office department has agreed to name two post offices Trilby. The law governing the naming of post offices is very simple. There ran be, but one of a name in a state, and no name is permitted which too closely resembles another, name in the same state, as it these simple restrictions » community is allowed to select its own post office name . _ . _ PNEUMATIC BOATS. orn Defliwl In X«w- H«1I G»to'« Dun cled A novel boating party, passing through the swift and dangerous eddies of Hell Gate the other afternoon, says the Kew York Recorder, attracted the attention of hundreds of spectators from Kew York and Long Island shores, as well as from the passengers on board the sound steamers. The party consisted of Miss Marie Grean, who is said to be as much at home in the water as on land, H. D. Lyman, the inventor of the novel boats in which the party were taking their cuting; MISS CKEE.VS TlilP TEBOUOn HELL GATE. Emory B. Remington Prof. Henry Wilson, instructor in aquatics of the Manhattan Athletic club, and Hany C. Graham. The boats are pneumatic affairs, and resemble when in the water a life belt on a large scale. The. occupant sits astride the "Itottom" of the boat much as one does the saddle of a bicycle, and propels himself with his legs, which are incased in rubber shoes and leg. gings, and on which there are fins with •which the propelling is done. The oc cupant is iu view from the waist up and glides along in the water with apparent ease and grace. The invention is a new one, and intended for sporting purposes mainly. The trip was made on a wager that it would bo impossible to pass through Hell Gate in the pneumatic boats with safety. To show how thoroughly practical the invention is, MissGreon determined to be one of the party. The start was made from off the foot of One Hundred and Twentieth street, and down the stream the party paddled with their feet. On the way down the party got in between two sound steamers, and the wash they received was strong. The little boats, however, rode the waves lashed up by the steamers like ducks, and did not ship any water. Tho party made its way through the gate and down the East river, to Willie's Coat, and at the foot of East Eighty- ninth street, without mishap, and were j-eccived by a large congregation of friends and sightseers, who welcomed them witlf cheers. The outing boat weighs from fifteen to twenty pounds, and can be carried, when not inflated, as an ordinary hand grip, or strapped on the shoulders as a knapsack. It contains four air-tight compartments, any one of which 's sufficient, in case of puncturing of the other, for keeping the occupant of the craft afloat.
