not be generally known that much of the sculpture of ancient Athens was originally painted in bright colors Until recently archaeologists maintained the theory that the refined art of the Greeks had found its expression in the pure form of the disregarding color and any evidences to the con trary were as only giving rise to troublesome subversive of the true worship of Greek art Within the past few several in teresting pieces of painted sculpture have been discovered which have given rise to some interesting speculations among students and CHARLES ica against anything English at this time as

for horse or mule power I cannot as I am not well enough acquainted with the canal to A very extended and interesting opin ion on the feasibility of the canal elec trical scheme was given by John of the Ronan Towing Ronan said The plan which yon ex plain to me is not a new one by any The first man who broached the Erie canal trolley system to me was an who is demented on the sub ject of 1 think of course merely from a not a point of view that the scheme is im There are a thousand and one objec tions to it which present themselves to any for the trolley It must be remembered that it is canal boats and not horse cars that are to be run The horse car is forced to go in a certain line by the solid But would not a canal boat waver so from side to side that it would be impossible to keep a trolley wheel on that set wire Then there would be the continual probability of the wires blowing down and in other ways being How are the trolleys to be managed going through locks you do not travel up and down grade in an inclined posi tion as a car are always on a What would they do at the six teen locks with the trolley system I think the trolley system on the canal is utterly out of It em braces so many points where complica tions might and so uiucfi cost of that 1 think it is entirely Supposing it were adopt Supposing that the or more boats on the canal were on that or the At any time a boat is liable to leak or to have an accident oc cur to its What then is to be done It would block the whole and that could not be One of the main will say the main the introduction of this system would be its reduction of That is what we are looking As canal boats are now constructed the introduc tion of the trolley system would revolu tionize the whole There would have to be special boats built for the introduction of motors and propelling That would throw the great army of canal boats that are now being used off the for no boats that did not run by electricity could navigate in those Can we afford to do this Then the introduction of a motor into a canal boat would in crease its tonnage greatly I would reduce its carrying capacity almost 20 per and sitting downat the nearest table
