statue of a child, Gathering Flowers, by Miss
Margaret Baskerville, represented a little country
girl in the act of leaning forward to pluck a flower,
her hand extended gracefully and tenderly, as if
she loved the flowers and would not crush or
hurt them. The child is bare-legged, and her short,
rough petticoat is drawn up so as to form a sort of
basket for the flowers. Mr. C. Web-Gilbert was
represented only by small terra-cotta sketches, the
best being a small head with ivy leaves. Mr.
W. Scurry showed a sketch model, a figure
intended to be erected on the new Opera House,
Melbourne; it possessed a striking outline, and
was well proportioned. Dr. C. Lethbridge's
portrait bust, treated in an unconventional
manner, was a decided improvement in tech-
nique on his last year's exhibit. He also
exhibited a carved wood panel for the altar
of a church. Mr. H. F. Dunne sent a small
panel of wood carving and a sketch model for
wood carving, while Miss M. Bernhard-Smith had
a portrait bust of Mr. Ramsay Thomson, manager

of the Long Tunnel Mine, Walhalla. It was
treated in a rather unusual style, the base being
made to represent gold quartz.

technique and artistic ability displayed in their
production. Reproductions of these drawings in
colour upon a largely reduced scale have been
made, and now appear as illustrations to the
record of the artist's experiences which have been
