sticking out of a clump of grass, and by
using a post lantern of toma shape, or the
rush-mat covering for the boat. By
suggestion and association, one may hear
the songs of an absent nightingale, or see
the cranes stalking gracefully where they
do not actually live. In its parts each
group, each corner, each setting, must be
beautiful in itself. But that is not enough :
that alone could not make a perfect garden.
Since each is dependent upon another,
they all must harmonise and perfect the
whole. By the process of eliminating un-
necessaries, by careful study of balance,
the desired end is attained. Thus in a
limited space of ground the soul of the
limitless expanse of Nature is brought to
dwell to the enjoyment and betterment of
man. 000000

THE FIFTIETH LIVERPOOL
AUTUMN EXHIBITION. 0 0

THE Aldermen of Liverpool have this
year made a mighty effort. They
have borrowed the great work of fifty
years and, assisted as usual by a London
artist (with a local brother), have hung it,
madly mixed with modernity. 0 0
Gossip says that the London artist
arrives each year metropolitan and nicely
smooth, and leaves (whatever his tempera-
ment) a raving caveman, hair on end.
Mere gossip : and yet the traces of the
amateur, everywhere visible, make it
unbelievable that any artist with a free
hand is responsible. Whistler was hanger
once (" never asked me to hang at Liver-
pool again; Ha-ha I") 0 0 0
