I Howelli EwbellWhwi ner Father'* Ponini—SoraetMnc Abont the Art t Colour o« Heir York — Wellow> Ma met. (New York Letter.) 1LDRED Howells, daughter of William Dean Howells, is "a clever art student of Gotham. Perhaps it should tie said that she is a recognized artist. But the artists have a way of clinging to the title of "student" "long after they can work Independently. : Hiss HowellB, has her studio in. the •very heart of the art students' colony. • The "Colony" is that section of the city extending across the whole width of Central Park and down town as far «s Fiftieth street. The Art League is in the center and the students group around it. It is the Latin quarter of New York. Miss Howells has a studio in her father's apartments facing Central Park. She works dally with her brushes, for art Is her profession, as literature Is her father's. Mies Howella, after a long course of -study in Paris,. Rome and London, began,by illustrating her father's poems. Her tall-ploces attracted attention,-and the cleverness with'.which-she caught the conception of the work made Meads for her with writers. All artists cannot get the "tone" of the work they illustrate, even white they draw well. Miss Howells' work appears regularly In the highest class magazines and she has settled down to the profession of regular illustrative work. Another of the girl artists of New York Is Allesrra Eggleston, daughter of Edward Eggleston. "Miss Eggleston," aald an officer ot the Art League, "ought not to be called a student now, though one still studies. She is a pro- fienslonal." Her specialty ia ; children's . faces. These she does with much delicacy, making them young, sweet and dimpled. She was the first artist who over had the courage to put a pu$ nose upon a child's face, though all children's noaeo are pug.' Besides drawing In line work, which IB Miss Eggleston's specialty, she carves exquisitely. When Hhe was a little, girl she, carved an ••Idol" out of a rotten piece of wood. Her father saw It and was Impressed with the correctness of the lines, for the child had exactly copied an idol in the Metropolitan museum, and he told her to keep on. At ten her instruction in art began. George Cable's daughter is another of the daughters of literary fathers who have worked successfully with the brash. Though . married now, this young woman Is a "girl artist," embellishing her father's writings ...and successfully contributing to the maga- •toes. Her best work is In the charac- ter.aketchea which her father describes •o graphically. She saye she "sees them while ae reads." The peculiarly quiet, studious dlspo- «I professional men pervades, great beauty, and her commissions hare been paintings for family portrait galleries. This Is a- line of work-much coveted'byall artists of. all degrees of ..prominence, and of both sexes.. To go farther and be. admitted to the, annual portrait show in the autumn Is the very acme of dwlre. But this has as yet been attained by few of the "girl artists." The professionals, Roslna Emmet Sherwood and her well-known sisters-In-art, havo^alone been represented here. Miss- Jessamy Harte is known in a quiet way to illustrators as ; "a young woman who can If she will." Like her father, she works-when she feels like it, and with marvelous talent She studies in the same way, by fits »nd starts. She is ona of the youngs? of the Illustrators, and has an expressed ambition to do newspaper illustrp.'V.ng, a. branch of work into which all, high- class illustrators are rapidly coming; Good press work encourages them 'to offer their pictures to newspapers, 'where poor paper, bad presswork and cheap Ink used to deter them. The exquisite press work of the last year which makes the. newspaper rival the magazine has attracted older artlsta than Miss Harte to the Sunday editor's room, Miss Margaret Kittredge, daughter of the well-known clergyman, is a girl well along in art work. She paints MISS HOWELLS AT WORK, with the touch of heredity, the minds of the daughters. Daughters of law- yen, clergymen'and the girls of army officers turn to art and.want to study it. They do not ask for reserved seats ia the art classes, but are content to tall.in line with the rest and wait for talent to -bring them forward'. .One of these girls who took a course at the Art League, working hard at the the cubes and fruit nieces, then at the figure casts, was Elsie Clews, daughter of Henry Clews, the banker.. Mlas CIew«' best work lay in her outdoor «lMtche8. Her desire was to paint landscape, and she did It BO well that the «tud«nt* crowded around'her easel, as they will around anything'good, and freely admired. Art students are pecu- Umr In one respect. They are apparently . untutored, to worldllneas, und neglect to the point of scorn a student who mhowB no ability for art. HIM M»ry Flower, niece of ex-Gov. Flower, Is a girl artist. She has style, •mnethlng highly valued In. art work. H«r family portraits have th« touch of MISS. CLEWS, with much painstaking, and disposes of all the work she cares to turn off. Many of the art students like Miss Kittredge, who have a coterie of .friends, gen- erouely offer to show otbo'r pictures with their own, and so many a sale is effected. Most girl artists marry too soon for their artistic prospects to mature. One of these, whose talents gave her recognition In a year, is Miss Mary Goodwin, one of the clever Goodwin sisters, of Savannah, Jumping In one short year from "a modest student at the New York Art league to -a general illustrator, she was claimed by a large newspaper for "exclusive services" at a salary that would support a whole family In comfort, even in Gotham. This young woman will became in November the wife of C. S, Hubbell, 6n« of the -best-known of the art directors of New York. She will go to live In a beautiful house now being ..built according > to'their combined artistic I tastes. Miss Goodwin's specialty ia figure work, Into which she puts the nameless "style" that has made her older sister's fame. Three of the Goodwin sisters will winter in Paris, desert- Ing the art colony of Gotham for a year. Though famous, they are all mere girls. Other New York art students are Miss Lulu Moury, daughter of Gen. Moury; Mabel Tldball, daughter of Gen. Tidball, and Ellen Mahan, daughter ot Capt. Mahan, of the United States navy. All are perfecting themselves for Illustrative work. Gen, Huestis has a daughter, Lonise, whose art work will make her a professional, and Gen. Morris' daughter, Lindsey, Is another girt willing to work out her talent. Bishop NilesJe proud of a daughter, Bertha; \whose. cle.ver art work is known, and Gen. McMaster has an artist daughter, Lillian, whose future promise Is grdat. • . " ' Promising "girl artists" whom Goth- amites know are Mrs. Helena DeKay Glider, wife of Richard Watsom Gilder. 3he is one of the finest painters in the ranks. Others are Marie Coles, of Syracuse; Lydia Field Emmet, sister oi Rosina Emmet Sherwood; Ilta Ho wells, of Long Island; Helen Guile, of Worcester, daughter of Gen. Guile; .Ida Proper, daughter of a Seattle missionary; Grace Ennking, daughter of the celebrated Boston painter; Margaret Gunn, daughter of the Survey of Montreal; Mae Craigin, daughter of Dr. Cralgln, ol San Jose, Gal.; Essie Collins,-daughter of Judge Collins, of Ohio; Mrs. S.prague Smith, wife of Prof. Smith, of Columbia college.; Zella Mllhau, whose grandfather wae Gen.

MILLIONAIRE ba T by, the only grandT daughter.of Philip Armour, the Chicago pork packer, is living In a little world of its own.- quite cut off from the rest of human- .Ity. The tiny girl was; born before she was -quite sturdy enough to breathe the alr,that mortals breathe and she was at once put Into a "brooder," or incubator, as it Is commonly called. If the doctors succeed In making her live old Pbil will give the midget $l,000,00fr when they are able to take her out of the machine. When John Howard, a hundred years ago, told the world that in a Wallaeh- lan prison he had seen men .kept in cells only four feet high and six feet long and two feet wide women fainted with horror at the philanthropist's description of the living death to which these wretched creatures were condemned. But the sky of Miss Armour's world is only twelve Inches above her head and from one horizon to the other the space ia only two feet!' and yet the young lady does not find her sphere of action limited, for the only movement she makes is to wiggle her pink toes and open and shut, her microscopic fists.

A little glass cylinder was then arranged so that it would hold half a. dozen spoonfuls of milk; and at the ends pf the cylinder two'.rubber bulbs were placed, one of which was perforated'. From this'tiny exit the milk Is slowly forced down the child's throat, a drop at a time. ' A 'Spoonful, of mttk' Is-gl^en;every-hour throughout the twenty-four hours of each of the first few days of life; and the'weight of the little girl; which was four'pounds when she was born, has not decreased at all.

When she Is a month old, she will;'If all goes well, weigh about eight ounces more. At five weeks of'age her' weight ought to be five pounds, at'seven weeks six pounds, arid at ten weeks she will probably weigh seven pounds, and be removed from the brooder; Throughout this time she will have four 'or five drops of brandy half a dozen times on -any day when she seems to be losing strength.

He was Invested with hierarchical as well ae regal powers, as were his successors, until 1331. when Prince Daniel!; coming to the throne, declined the eccleslas- tical dignity, and since then the two functions have been separate and distinct.

He is now about fifty-five year* of age, tall, rather stout and of prodigious physical strength. A mustache covers a strong, firm mouth, and he wears short mutton chop whiskers. At home he always dresses in the native costume— a white woolen tunic, with close fitting sleeves, open in front to display a red shirt richly embroidered with gold -lace, and large blue trousers, tucked into high boots, the whole set oft by a graceful toque of red and black ailk. . When he leaves his little kingdom, which he often does, he appears in the garb of an English gentleman. He IB passionately fond of yachting for a mountaineer and maintains a nno steamer in the harbor of Cottaro, Such was the apostrophe addressed by the late Lord Tennyson to 'the'B'lack Mountain Kingdom of Montenegro', ruled -over by Prince Nicolas. The recent betrothal of his third daughter, Helena, to the Crown Prince of Italy, the talk of courts and a problem for statesmen, recalls the picturesque personality of Prince Nicolas and the unique, political importance of his little principality —the size of Rhode Island—with 200,000 Inhabitants. Prills* Helena, one of seven daughters, was born in the royal palace in Cettinje in 1873. With her sisters she Inherited the superb dark beauty of their mother, the daughter of a Montenegrin nobleman. She has been most carefully reared by tutors and governesses, and to not only admirable in all ,tbe arts and graces of European courte, s but Is w«ll versed 1 In the play of politics and in.every way qualified to succeed even \eo lovely a queen as Margherita of Italy. For several years past the name of the Prince of Naples has been matrimonially mentioned in connection with nearly every eligible princess in Europe, and Ae affair has operated to divide Roman society into several parties. One section, the first to appear, wishes for a marriage with Princess Clementineof Belgium, youngestdaugh- ter of King Leopold II. Another large party hopes for an alliance with an English princess, because of the friendship existing between the two nations and the good feeling o£ the two reigning houses one for the other. A third , agitates for Princess Fedora of Schles| wlg-Holstein, sister of the Empress of Germany, in order to consolidate the alliance with that country. A fourth wants a marriage with the Archduchess ___ Maria Annunzlata of Austria to pop-1 voure heroique et celebre dan's un pay* ularize the Austrian alliance, which still has in Italy many opponents.

The temperature inaide the brooder Is kept at 95 degrees Fahrenheit so. that no part of the child's strength need be wasted In the generation of animal heat. Warmth,, darkness and silence are the three chief characteristics uf a child's environment before It is born and the use of the brooder makes It easy to exclude both the light and the noise, which disturb the incomplete human being. Another requirement is that the delicate morsel of humanity should be touched and handled aa little as possible. If it were possible to keep it'floating In a bath all the time.'so that there would never be . unequal pressure on its body, this w.ould be. done;'but it is not'practicable to'do more than provide the softest of, beds.

D'une bra- Ac-i cording to others, the Prince will look to the east and marry Princess Maria Maddalena, fourth daughter of King George of Greece, born in Athens in 1876. Last month It was rumored in London that the beautiful and unsuspected little Princess Helena had .won the great prize,.and this rumor has now turned out to be correct. The groom to be and future King of Italy is the only son of the present king, and is named Vittorio Emman- uelo Fernandino Maria Geunaro. He was born In 1869, and has the repute of being a liberal, scholarly and soldierly man, being a general in the Italian army and a patron of art and literature. While this young couple»await their ' supreme happiness—no date is yet fixed for the wedding—it will be entertaining PRINCE OF NAPLES, to turn for a moment to the remarkable, personality of the father of the bride- Prince Nicolas of Montenegro. For ages the history of Montenegro was bound up with that of the Servian kingdom; and was finally merged after a Berte.8 of .-bloody ,wars under the dominion 1 of the Ottoman Empire,-yet while all southern Slavdom was under Turkish dominion the Montenegrins, perched on their black rocks, were still able to keep up a show of Independence. .••-.' Like all mountaineers, they loved liberty; and were willing: to flght- and die for it. The skirmishes with the Turks continued for more than a century, the deadly • hatred, of Montenegro's arch enemy being handed down from father to son. In the sixteenth century the Turks, under Sultan Solyman, wearied of this desultory fighting, appeared in such overwhelming force that th* black ,— „— — mountaineers were forced to sullenly tor foreign, $739.103. de heros.

An Englishman who was his guest at Cettlnje writes of him as follows: "The prince does not lead the regular life of a European ruler; he IB a sort of chief of clan, and shares the rude, independent existence of bis people. He rises late, anfl goes to the senate o^ visits the court house, and takes par* in the deliberations of the supremv tribunal. When a criminal case is o\ he follows the debates attentively. questions the accused and witnesses. and sometimes acts as counsel for the person on trial. Upon his daily promenade through the streets of the capital the prince allows all Of his subject* to approach him and make known their demands. Ther" petitions are usually presented at the public well, where the prince, sitting on the brink and eur- rounded by his guards, listens kindly to the complaints or requests of those who desire to speak to him. "The family dinner takes place at noon, and is followed by a long siesta for 'the Montenegrins are aa lazy. a« they are brave. A horseback ride usn- rftly precedes the evening meal, after Jwhich the prince frequently joins a lot 'of his warriors and senators, to whom he talks on European politics, science and the leading questions of the day and listens to their remarke about Montenegrin affaire. In these familiar conversations the Black Mountain chief finds out more in an hour about the condition of his country than he could learn from an extensive correspondence. It Is said of the prince that he does a certain amount of money lending on his own account, since there are no banks, and he is the only person who has any money in hie kingdom, and not overmuch at that. • He Is an indefatigable worker, is constantly moving about in his principality, and it is said of him that he .knows He , every one of his subjects by sight. will this year celebrate the bicentenary of his dynasty. : There must have been a Jublles'ln the pit when rum was Invented.
