achievement of beauty. In Old Neivman,

Mr. John Tweed raised through his

really fine sculpture the old face to the

dignity which its character claims. A

beautiful study was the head by Alfred

Drury, A.R.A., called The Spirit of the

Night. Mr. Havard Thomas, in his classic

and restrained Camomile Gatherer,

sought to content us with perfection of

form, which, making no desperate

attempt to arrest our attention, claimed it

at once on grounds of pure art. Mr.

Pomeroy's Lord Dufferin was a silver

statuette of much dignity of conception

and scholarly work. The Ariadne

Necklace, by Messrs. E. Spencer and

J. Bonnor, was particularly worthy of

mention, and there was an interesting

exhibit of jewellery designs by Mr. Paul

Cooper. We remarked the beauty of

Mr. Alexander Fisher's exhibits in our

former article on the International

Society. Among interesting works were

also the portraits of Mr. Stirling Lee.

Mendicante by C Delacour was touched

with pathetic significance. The case

of bronzes in antique manner by Paul

W. Bartlett were curious in their mix-
ture of earnest study and studied

affectation, but they were very pleasing

in result. E. Bourdelle's Beethoven
