ESSENTIALS OF SEA ARMORY

she sank into a chair and began to sing.
She had her back to the open door, and
the peacock-blue patch of star-laden sky-
formed a background to her head, while
the orange flame of the cand.il fell aslant

on her clear-cut features as she sang. 0

In so short a space it would be impossible
even to touch upon all the claims that
Granada has upon the painter's attention.
Things pass unnoticed here that in other
countries would cause artists and amateurs
to flock to paint them. The surrounding
country is full of superb landscape
material which I believe has never been
touched. There are the bull-fights—but
that is a study apart, which no casual
sketcher on a jaunt through Spain should
attempt. There are the beggars—more
attractive on canvas than when one is
taking an aperitivo on the Plaza del
Carmen ! And lastly, it would be unfitting,
and ungallant, to close this brief essay
without at least referring to the dark-eyed
pale-complexioned Andalusian girls, ever
seated mysteriously behind iron-barred
windows looking out on an enigmatic

world. A delicate hot-house flower this
southern Spanish senorita — jealously
guarded, sparsely educated, and with few
accomplishments, yet, withal, the most
deliciously feminine of her sex to be
found anywhere in Europe at the present
time. a a a 0 0 a

WHEN invited to contribute some re-
marks on flags, it is by no means
easy to think of an aspect of this large sub-
ject which is capable of compression into
the pages of an art journal. The intention
here is mainly to show, by examples, what
the writer regards as the excellence of some
early flags, based on early shields of arms,
and to suggest how the objects for which
flags were primarily devised may be de-
feated at sea through the disregard of an
elementary rule of armory. But this de-
feat may be due also to a totally different
