L Galbraith & Co. FARM MACHINERY IRDWARL It is probably a violation of the first principles of art to refer to the financial showing of an art loan exhibition first. The public, however, Is curious to know whether such an attemptcould pay its way in Algona, and will be gratified to learn that the receipts were sufficient to meet the actual expenses. They were for the three days $85. From the artistic side the exhibition was finer, It is safe to say, than has ever been attempted in Iowa in a town the size of Algona. It Is doubtful if a half dozen finer collections have ever been seen in the state. The black and white work, both crayon drawings, hasty sketches, and Japanese imitations was exceptionally fine. Tho exhibition of prints by the Chicago Art institute was large and the copies of old masters very Interesting. The oil paintings, pastels and water colors, china painting, etc., and the big collection of kodaks all merited praise. The walls of the room wore lined, and not a spare foot was vacant. The work of putting up frames, oi making a background of cloth, of hang ng lamps, and of tacking on photographs was very great. Mr. and Mrs Starr, Col. Cooke, Miss Louise McCoy and Mrs. Prof. Spencer deserve specia mention for assuming the main respon sibility and tor working out the nna success. THE EXHIBITION IN DETAIL. On entering the hall and turning to the right the space between the door and the corner of the room was occupied by still life studies in black and white by Josie Pettibone, Mrs. Shinn, and Louise McCoy, and by copies from casts by the same and Ella Durant. , . First on the west side were throe auto graph letters with portraits of Govs. Carpenter Larrabee, and Drake, together with two old calls for volunteers back in 1861, all loaned by Chas. Aldrich from the state historical department. Next came crayon studios from life, a splendid collection. Will Purvis, of whoso success Algono is proud, was liberally represented,,also Josio Pottibone, whoso woik throughout was excellent. The Chicago Art Institute, the Minneapolis School of Fine arts, and Pratt institute of Brooklyn, N. Y., were represented. Then came 63 water colors, pastels, etc., among our local artists, Mrs. Hutchison, Jessamine Jones, Ella Durant, Josie Pott bone, and A. M. Coan's sister, Mrs. Shinn, being represented. A few Hue ones by Mrs. Call Perkins were loaned by Mrs. Will Purvis was next represented by 18 sketches each done in 15 minutes, all true to life and very interesting. Beyond the school casts he had 80 more. „,,«),. In the corner a fine display of the public school casts was made, and with them was a bust of Will Purvis done by a classmate in the art institute, and also an Arabian head done very excellently by Ella Durant Fifty hasty pencil sketches by Mr. and Mrs. Shinn, all clevei led up to the Chicago Art institute ambrotypes, prints, etc., of which there were 50, all copies of famous works of art. They formed one of So chief features of the exhibition With them were some fine copies loaned by Thos. F'rst on the east side came 11 paintings bv Will Purvis, seven heads, two land- scanes and two sketches. The portrait of a darkey boy was generally admired most, but all displayed the art of a true artist. Next came 34 paintings in oil by C. A. Gumming of Des Moines, the leading art are to be congratulated on having such a beautiful place of worship. H J Henderson 6f Williamsburg has rented W. P.
