VISIT TO THE WOMEN'S EXHIBIT AT THE EXPOSITION.  Miss Gardner and Miss Klumpkc the Most Distinguished Artists — Dmrlptlim 'Of Their Studios—Great Disappointment nt the American Showing.  [S|>eclal Correspondence.] Paius, July 18.—The American exhibit at the Paris exposition is a disnpi>ointment. Visitors from the States aro |v>\verless to conceal their chagrin. Women nro particularly severo in their denunciations. Tho wonderful advancement of the American woman in intellectual anil iiulustrlul pursuits led her countrymen anil Euro]» to expect groat things at this exposition commemorating the one hundredth anniversary of the French republic. A powerful factor in her own country, a lending spirit in its expositions, tho American womnn has here no distinctive representation. True, there are tho banners and ¡icriodicals of the W. C. T. U.. several pieces of sculpturo from Mrs. Caroline S. Brooks, whose modeling in butter was a feature of the Philadelphia American centennial, and n choleo anil distinctive collection of pottery. Tho seerot of the coni|h>sition mul firing of this ware is the discovery of Miss Iconise McLaughlin, of Cincinnati, O., who, together with her followers, Miss Lnurn Fry, Alice R. Hoinbiri! and Clara Chapman, havo brought it to a iiisli state of Jx'rfeot ion. Legions of American women who have achieved marked success in art, science, literature nnd lienevo-lence, spring to the mind as one traverses the limited space allotted to the United States. Uo|w.'iti d Inquine« as to tho cause of their absence brings no satisfactory explanation. "Perhaps they havo a separate building." Buoyiil with this thought we set out to discover tho wlierealsiuts of " I^ s Dallies des Ktuts-lTnis do Ij'Ainericjue." In a second story sci'tion of tiu> spneious gallery of line arts we found her, a small baud convicting with brother nrtist.s. Seventeen women np-|s?ar in the catalogue.

If "Tlie Farmer's Daughter" is too busy feeding her jKiultry to toll us why American women are not more fully represented, perhaps her mistress may find the leisure. With this assurance ivo drove to 7." line Notre Dame des Champs, in whose classic neighborhood has lived since the Commune of ISTOthe foremost woman painter of America, Miss Kliailieth Jane (¡/miner.  Thediior was o|H'ned by a French maid. It was a mooting of (ireek with (íreek. Entro vs. exit was iliK-ideil by the ap|Hvirance of a small, pleasant faiis 1 woman with dark wavy hair st.real.ed with gray, expressive eyes and a charming maimer that puts tin.'stranger at east!. There was 11 mischievous . twinkle in her eye as sliesto.nl, palette and maul stick ill hand, mid smilingly asked: "Do you wish to see liiei"  "Is this Miss Gardner f"  "Yes, 1 nm Miss ki.izahktii uaiuisku. CinrilmT. lie seated please," said Itougueivuux's comjMvr. "The muid said there nusn iaily at the door who spoko English and would not go away, and that I must go and tell her myself that I was not at homo." A hearty laugh ensued, nnd for once an American was delighted to discover that it. was 1111 advantage not to speak French in Paris.  "1 never receive visitors except 011 reception dav," she explained; "1 alii too busy, but if you will excuse my studiodress we will go there at once." Miss Gardner is a lover of bir ls; an aviary forms tho vestibule of her studio. In an ojien window of the studio a liarefooted |x>asaut girl, whoso features may Ik) traced through many of the distinguished painter's pictures, was Rising for tho new work. Miss (ianlniT had 'just liegun. TI10 subject is a young girl holding a bowl from which two children are blowing so.ip bubbles. It is a largo canvas and was sold before the completion of tho charcoal sketch, three of which the artist, always makes licfore laying in color. Hogging tlmt the model bo not dismissed, we got. at tho painter's siilu while she laid in with ipiick strokes those matchliKS gray tints for w hich her flesh coloring is so conspicuous. The studio of Elizabeth Gardner is an ideal s|xit.  On its lofty walls aru ancient tapestries, fitting background for the Stars and Ktrqies which stand half mast near tho entrance. Busts, antique and modern, sketches in black and oil, urtislic jars of growing palms, carved back chairs and divans, rugs, |>ortieres and countless bits of lieauty completo tho harmony of this haunt of the musís. Two paintings just home from tho last Salon stixxl 011 easels. Uno ivas nil exquisite gsirtrait of tho ¡(-year-old sou of Mrs. Kepling, the other "Dans le Itois," owned by Mrs. Uhinelandcr Waldo, Imtli of Now York city. "They were ordered last fall," said Miss Gardner, "nnd tho owners saw them yesterday for the first timo. Thu Jury of the Universal exposition thought I ought to have sent them there, as thoy nro my last works But tho owners wanted them, then the jury wero not pleasant or just to us women. They noted very badly. 1 make no (»crsonnl complaint, still they «lid not do right."  "Do toll us what is the trouble. Why are so few women represented/ Aro they not doing good work*"  "(iood, very gissl," wai the.|uii:k resiioiise. "There is much taientand many hard workers. Tiiero aro hundreds of students, but few remain abroad long enough to maku permanent progress. Tho oxi»>sition is 1111 representation of what American women are accomplishing in urL"  "Did they not send their work I" "Certainly. S01110 were prevented by illness,"etc , but those from whom much was expected had their l>est paintings rejected."  "What was the enusof" A comprehensivo shrug of tlie shoulders and thu woman and the artist buttled for supremacy.  "The space was limited," said Mi» Qardnor. "The jury of seventeen men have from six to seven pictures apiece, ull large canvtueo. TI10 women were crowded out. My picture that had No. I nt tile Salon, and Miss Klumpko's "Algerian Girl," tli.it Uouguoiuau praised highly, were rejected, as were tho paintings of many women who have exhibited in tho  Salon. But then wa* not Btory, whom all American love, denied admlttanoe! It 1« bod, too bod. But the Jury war« reprMentattv« man, and w• helped to elect them. The rewarda are many tills year, and they are am-bitioui. Perhaps it liright."  The model was now dlsmleed, the canvas rolled asido and a tempting lunch served, whilo tho chat took a rotrospoctivo turn.  "Opportunity for art study must have changed greatly since you came to ParUr  "Twenty years ago," said this pioneer artist, "thero wero no art facilities for woman In Paris. No school, no studio would admit her."  "What lod yon to seek PariRr  "My friend, Miss Imogcno Robinson, now Mrs. Morrell, ot Washington, D. C., had studied art in Dusseldorf, Germany. She was a teacher in Auburndalo seminary, Massachusetts, where I graduated. Together wo taught school nt Worcester, and, encouraged by hor, subsequently wo came to Paris. For some timo I copied to tho galleries. Good copies found a ready sale anil my purse needed replenishing. Those were days of hard Strugs gla My greatest defect was in drawing. Disguised as a boy I enterod the government drawing school at tho Gobelin factories.  "My hair was short; I did not understand tho language, nnd, although severely criticised by my own sex, suffered no indignities from tho students.  "That was my first teacher," said Miss Gardner, turning with gratitude to a morble bust of Hugh Merle. "Ho took me with his family to Normandy ono auramor, where we sketched and painted."  Elizals'th Gardner was tho first woman to enter tho Julian school. About this timo she attracted the attention of Bouguereau. She never pninted in his studio, but had tho benefit of his corrections morning and evening. She liked his stylo anil method. She believed in him. To this day she nevor begins a picture without consulting him, or disposes of it without his approbation. "IJtuow I aro con-  Miss KI.CMI'KK'S 1MCTDRK, SALON OF 1889.  denmed for not striking out more boldly— creating a style of my own," said Aliss Gardner. "Perhaps I have mode a mistake, - ' she iiildi.il thoughtfully; then, with sudden brightness, "Raphael is now scarcely distinguished from his great pupil, and I would rather be ISougueriviu's Ijcst Imitator than—nobody.'' Acceptance at the Salon is the criterion of an artist's work. The highest rowaril is the modal of honor. Then come tho first, second and third medals and honorable montion. It is'very dilllcult for a foroigner—especially nn American—to secure even a third clast medal. Henry .Master waited nine years. Miss Gardner is the first woman to receive the third medal. Her success is an honor to America; her life to her sex.  "1 like tho French," sho said, warmly. "They aro very kind to mo. But I lovo America. My countrymen liko my work. A t least I hope they <lo not, buy my pictures for charity." Tho courtship of Boaguoreaa and his brilliant pupil is drifting into the art folk lore of Paris. Tlicy havo Immmi engaged many years. The French mother never loses control of her children. Bouguereau'a mother's objection prevents tho'consuinma-tion of tho union. Houguerenu is an unassuming widower of (X) years, whilo Miss Gardner is ill the prime of life.  Another most distinguished nnd promising American woman artist in Paris is Miss Anna E. Ivlumpke. Hers is tho bold, effective stylo of the new French school. Educated in Germany, Miss Klumpko came to Parts in 1880, where sho found every obstaclo in tho way of art instruction removed, so effectively hail the path bwn cleared by Miss Gardner. Sho entered tho Julian school, where sho took tho annual prize In drawing. Contests between tho men and women students take placo at the close of the school year. Tho men havo tho model two weeks, then it is given to tho women tor an equal length of timo. All sketches are hnndiil in unsigned. Four of thu great artists, including Bouguereau and Lefabvro, comprise the awarding committee. Before examining tho sketches submitted tho model is recalled and placed in position rep-risonted in tlie drawing. This is tho severest test. Likeness takes precedence.  Miss Klumpko's llrst picture appeared nt tho Salon of ls&i. She has never fuiled to exhibit at all succeeding exhibitions. Her last picture attracted widespread attention, aiul has been solicited for the Liverpool exhibition It is a life sizo portrait of her mother, who is seaUnl, reading a liook in tho most natural manner. Tho light comes from an unseen window, falling on the gray hair, touching the edge of tho right cheek, tip of nose, right hand and liook, leaving all elso in pronounced shadow. Tho effect produced is most dilllcult to attain, and her success has strengthened her reputation. It'was confidently exjieetoil to receive tho thinl medal.  Sho is an indefatigable worker, a pupil of RoIhm I Fleury, Bouguereau and DeVuillofray. Miss Klumpko continues to attend tho Julinn school for drawing. For years bIio has sketched daily from eigiit to fivo o 'clock, besides teaching. "I nm working for tho medal," sho sold, with tho glow of Iiojm and gtfiius lighting her strong,  n !j pleasant face. "It '//; is hard work and ^■long waiting, but will come." Miss Klumpko is ono of n family of 11 vo ra» mnrkablo sisters. Uer picturo at the Universal exposition is tho portrait of her eldest sister, who is the llrst woman admitted to practice as house surgeon in the Paris h'ispitul. Another sister is tho first w.,maii 1 «'I'mi I ted to enter the Paris observatory. She is employed as an astronomer by tho govoru-ment. In thu inspiring ntmosphero of a beautiful homo rich in art treasures nnd opening into a sylvan court in tho vicinity of tho studios of n any distinguished (inintcrs, Miss Klumpko pui-sucs her work. A lameness that necessitates tho use of a cano cuts her oil from much outdoor study, confining hor to portraiture and figure painting, in which sho is achieving early and marked success.  Among other women fortunate to ho recog* uized at tho Paris exhibition aro Miss Beaux and Miss Sarah 1>. B. Dodson, of Philadelphia; Miss It. I-iorraino Gill, of Baltimore, and tho well known Greatorox family, of Now York city. Miw Eleanor Greatorox received honorublo mention at the Salon of 1K.S7. Lida Rosb McCAnit  That Wh Ixing^Agn.

I saw a pretty young matron the other day holding tongs tn the gas Jet and then curling her blonde imngs with the heated iron.  "What a pity," I exclaimed, "to Injur» such beautiful hair as yours with a curling iron I"  "You aee,"she replied, "^rhen I married Robert I thought to mysolf If he ever aeti eyes on me with my brow bordered with a row of pn|<er knobs I shouldn't be a bit surprised if lie would bo disenchanted. At present he considers me beautiful. I can't afford to dispense with the bangs, for they help to raako me pretty. I cant afford to risk losing his admiration either by looking so ugly at night while the bangs are in preparation, to I purchased a curling iron. But when we went on our tour I did hot always have an opportunity to heat the tongs, and then I was In trouble, for I had to resort to the horrid curl papers again.  "Many a night in the sleeping cars have I secreted some paper under my pillow. Then I would lio awake till Robert's audible breathing assured me ho was sound asleep, and I would cautiously sit up in bed and twist my bangs in paper.  "The fear that I wouldn't wake first in the morning made my sleep anything but sweet and restful. How often I dreamed that I opened my eyes at dawn and found Robert gazing down at mo with horror and aversion I It's a wonder my blonde tresses didn't turn gray with the dreadful fear I experienced throughout that tour. At the first peep of dawn I started up, and with fingers trembling in haste tore out the obnoxious papers and sank buck on my pillow looking my angelic self once more, while the first untroubled wink of sleep I had that night blessed my eyes.  "On ono of these occasions, just as I was putting up the last bunch of bangs, Robort, m oused by tho rustling of the paper I used, which unfortunately was more stiff than usual, started up, exclaiming: "What's thatf"  "What's what, deari" I asked in a sleepy voico.  "While he was lighting a match I was frantically undoing my hair, and in another instant the light revealed me looking frightened, but, oh joy! not frightful.  "We agreed to call it rats, which I mentally s)>clleil backward and thanked my lucky star that I still possessed my husband's love."  A FOOLISH FREAK. Young girls just out of boarding school are liko tho spring in so many ways, besides being fresli and green.  Spring sings: Vo may trace my steps o'er tho wakening earth.  And so, too, you can trace tbo steps of tha blooming maiden  But of all places where she passed, at none was I so shocked as at the tomb of Juliet. I wcut to beautiful Verona on purpose to visit the house with tho famous balcony over tha orchard, anil the tomb where Sleopa "true and faithful Juliet." I found the tomb in m wild and desolate gardea that involuntarily called,up the linos Hamlet uaw. in «oiOoquia-ing on the weariness of thi* :  World: "i, ''' .  'Tis an umreeded garden *''  That grows to seed; things rank and gross In n* ture  Possess it merely.  So Juliet's tomb was in such a dreary spao* of rank weeds.  As I approached I murmured, "And this U thy last dwelling place, lovely Juliet, thou star of tho highest poesy of love!" In this IHXitical hiood I pushed aside tall weeds and came nearer, when suddenly a strange sight cause. 1 mo to start t>ack and clutch at the stout weeds for support, for there—oh, sacrilege! Juliet's sarcophagus was quito filled with modern visiting cards, tossed into it by tho fuir barbarians who had been drawn thithor by the powor of poesy!  But not ono of tho bits of pasteboard could havo contained tho name of another Juliet If such another spirit over visited lovely Verona «ho never left her calling curd, I'm sure.  In tho Catskills, too, I observed certain basin liko rocks that wero used as receptacles for calling caiils by the young giris who {Hissed that way.  Not far from ono of -theeo woll filled card baskets iii tho Catskills I noted a number of young lady tourists on a warm June morning bundled up lu shawls, with their throats esjieeinlly wrapped round and round with scarfs liko mummies.
