This is partly due to the foot that I posed lor real artists and I was a genuine model. I like to give a good advloo to ambitious young ladles, that possessing or thinltlng to possess a pretty arm or neok, thinlc them-aelvos born Vonuses. I know an Amerloaaladythat in-iss-ad-verHsod herself so: WAA'Tiau-A lady would like to pDBo,f or an artist, nude or In costume. Addicos OLEO-l'.\.Tn.A, Klrldand St., Boston. I know an axtist that collefl on.her, but he roturned to his studio all alone. Tho only answer I got from him In regard to his errand was: "She is too muoh Cleopatra for mo." Such a^person as tho abovo perhaps ha.s had tho assurance of some embryo artist with his portfolio full of chromos that she could mako a fortune out of ono season's posing. To that lady I would say; Don't pose, Not that posing would injure your moral points, for if you are a bom lady you con prescrvo yoiu:self so even in posing. A real artist has aa much respect for his model and would as soon think to inturo her as to spoil a valuable vase sent to him to be painted. He loves his art too much and I must say too selfishly to give up the latter for ony girl that hired herself out to him for tho lime being. Cases have happened that the artist married his model, but love in those cases had entered their hearts before the posing business or else love-making started there when posing ceased. It is never or very seldom that love and posing over get mixed up. Mind you, I am speaking of genuine artists and genuine models, nnd if ever there happened a little scandal It was ahrays through amatem: ar-� tists and models. Tho ladies' club diod a natural death- from natural causes. Tho Crayon Club of Roxbury-wa.s tho lai'ge olub that I posed in. I have posed tUerolouT'seasons, and on both sides wo cry for more. Such good old times wo all had 1 pretty war songs. I meantime was getting ready for the poso. When all had arrived, if it was a first night of a now pose, they would ask roe to take several attitudes, and having selected one wo all proceeded to business. This is the only club that don't use ordinary chairs. Each artist has his own wooden bench, with the drawing board attached. Those benches are all alike. The artist when he works goa straddle of the bench, and in that position ho can draw for hoiurs. Never did they forget that a lady was among them. All their jokes were real Gorman jokes. Here is a eamploof them; "Oh, my I" one would say. "�Vad is tho matter mid you?" somebody would answer; "can't you draw that foot? '^Vhy don't you work from the cast a little longer?" "Oh, no; it is not that. I ate some eel's pie at Mrs, Strongberth's,and they are fighting mid tho beer." A model should always bo doai! and blind in a class, and that is tho way Igot along �o well. Xateron the club rooms got. crowded, as the F,renoh artists that Mr. Prang imported joined the olub. Thonlhad some good fun. It was a real treat to hear for three hours those tivo nations trying to speak the English language correctly. Dm'lng the rest I would start a conversation and naturally my Italian would come in as spico to the conversation. Well, we all enjoyed it. Nobody sulked at the mistakes, and that is the way to learn strange language alter all. If the Boston artist dont have the vivacity of the French It is not wholly his fault, but s partly due to the food that ho oats and has to digest. A bad diggstlon Is enough to give the ulues even to a Frenchman, and to see one of them sick with Indigestion (as I haveV wotild bring a smile to a Bostonian. A Bostonian with indigestion draws the comer of his month towards his ears; will strike his bosom trying to belch (some of tliem would get the gold modal in Japan in that art), ana toss his head in a despondent manner. But a Frenchman will never forgot trying to look pretty. He will say quietly, with his head thrown back, with eyes of a dying gazelle: "Oh, mondieul Mondieu!" If the Boston artist could get in tho morning a good cup of ohocolato, a small roll, well halced, at noon a genuine French or Ita ian dinner, a pleasant wholesome chat nnd a good cigar, nnd in the evening if ho could Bit out in tho open air and sip his coffee In sood company, then, and only then, the Bostonian could show his good (if there is any) inner port. Thov all see this difference after they oome home from nbroiid. Why cannot Boston start a real .Bohemian club? Every house has a yard, Why not bury somewhere tho unsightly soapgrcase poil, etc., nnd lino that yard -nrith boxes fillott with pretty flowersV "VVlth tlie numerous improvements that Boston has one oould set up a small fountain regulated so aa to lot the water fiow only when wanted. Tho slot man hero has a chance. Lot him furnish tho fountain and make the people school that bright idea had not entered into thoir bright heads.  , It was tho Zepho Club that started that piooo of humanity: for tho models. When all those gases had filled tho model's lungs, then she fainted, nnd that faint meant money out of hor pocket. They don't pay hor for fainting. See tho dilTeronoo bnhvoen artist and student? A real artist would pay hor for that faint, and ho would turn ii; into a good profit, in sketching it as it lay, put it aside, and soouor or later that means money in his pocket. Not so tho student. Ho would turn his shoulders in disgust at tho painted model as a iienrtless di-ivor turns his shoulders to his fallen horse. ,Sho is no more good for him. Oh, art! art I How many wicked things ai'o done in thy name I F. d. Millet came tp Boston in order to give several locttiros on Greek costnnles. I wont to tho Y. M. C. Union Hall on Boyls-ton St. to help. I wore tho different co.s-tumes as fast as ho described them. 'The artists that saw mo there for the first time thought that I wtis Irish. I took that as a compliment. Tho next tlmo I wore those Costumes It was in the upper halls of tho Art Museum. Tliere I had a good treat, as in the front row I had tho pleasant and pretty face of the artist's wife. There are some faces that inspire us and make us feel a strong attachment toward the owners of such faces, and that is whatl felt for Mrs. F. D, Millet. Mr. ]\IillQt stood on the platform holding a piece of whlto chalk in his hand, ready to draw a line or a Greek word, so as to better explain himself. 'When he flnJehod describing one costume he would call me out. I stood there raising or lowering a piece of my drapery as he proceeded with tho rest of his lecture. We kept on doing this thing until all the wardrobe of a Greek lady had boon explained, and after the lecture was finished tho audience, which consisted of gentlemen and ladies, were allowed to ask (juostions. I hope Mi'. Millett enjoyed answering all of them. I don't know when the audionce would have been satisfied, had not the lecturer looked at his watch and pleasantly said aiat ho was very sorry but ho had just time to catoh his train for Now York.

Soiue of the .studios in the ArtMu.soum are on tlie ground floor. In fact, tlii-v are placed one flight below tho street, and any the work she was surprised at the small size of Mr. Millet's company, as she called it. Then she asked me if the professor was going to show me througli a stereoscopic lantern, and when i told hor that i was going: to Htand and walk on that stage alone with Mr. Millet, she said, raising hor eyes in an incredulous manner: "�Well, wo will seo this show, ani-wr-.y." But she woifld like to ask mo one more question. "How shall you mako yourself up, as a blonde or brunette?" i told hor that i was not going to play, but to illu-strate how to wear and now to walk in tho Greek costumes, and conseauently had no need to mako my face up. i was glad when Mr. Mi Hot came to escort mo to the theatre. i had time to seo it empty, and it made me feel homesick-as i wanted to be in there; everj'thing was so inviting. But 1 had to hum' in my dressing-room, Once in there i wa.s loft to myself, free to choose what oostmno i preferred to appear in first. i pinned my black hair high up so as to ilaoo tho three gold bands, .and putting ou 'iesh-oolored tlglits i tied a long strip of eather around my stocking feet, aaid i was ,n sandals. i put on nn imder garment and the pep-plum. �\Vhon i was ready i gave tho signal to Mr. M,, and i stepped on the stage. Well, altliough i know that ho was going to have a good .audience, i was surprised to find the auditorium so transformed. i tliink tliat only tlio babies and the infirm wore loft at homo. �\Vhy, us there was no orchestra, the people re.sted thoir heads very near tho footlights. For a inoment i must have looked like tho bull when ho first enters tJio arena and finds hiinsolf surrounded. However, tho surprise did not last long. Vie: soon began business in earnost. After tho artist had removed tlio popplum from my shoulders i moved about a litHo. Tlien i stood facbig tlio audionce and bogau to unbuoldo some of the straps, luid showing them, i clasped them again. Then i put the pepplum on and sat dowv in a manner so as t� make me look like a draped statue on a pedestal. As i struck tho attitude, tho Han-ard students were not sting-y in showing tlioir admiration. Besides clapping tlieir handii, some would stamp thoir dude cones heavily on the floor. i found out'ds that there were many bets during my performance. Lots of the students said that i had a corset on and somesaid no, and the latter, wlio won their bets, made mo share some of their profits in wiuo drinking.

IooIoo:.; is done, and don't ask any moro of the artist; for aftor all ho is human like otlier men. I posed for tho Normal Ai-t school. They liked me very much, but niy prices ivero too high for a charitable institution. I had a veiy flattering offer from the curator of that school. One day, after having paid mo, lie said if I would poso for iialf price ho woidd employ mc more. I'd rather poso for wliole prices and work loss. Artist T. M, G. is called tho Meissonior of Boston. I remomhor when Artist (j. arrived from Gonnauy. I posed for tho first picture ho painted in tho studio buildhig. It was called "Tho Troubadour." Tho piotui-o wa.s about 12x10 in size, but tho man w-as painted staiidnig, playing on the mandolin, Tho artist, bosidos painting the miin so real that if you looked at it a littlo while you could fancy ho was ivink-ii\g atyou, painted the small hands so carefully tliat tcioy socnied to really move ou the cords of tlio iiistrttmciit. I pased for those liands aliout seven days. It is a fact that any artist, be lie an Ameri-cnn or a foridgiipr, during tlio first four or five months aftor his roiuvn from Eurono, has in liim some Euroyioaii, liko soltzor ivator: but it -vvill last only a few nioiitlis and thou liko a usod-up volo.xuo, ho quiets down to tlic natural apathy ol Aiurrioan life. Artist G. at Unit tlnio had tho German foam with Itim. So the Sunday uioni-inir that 1 liegan to poso for that piomre, ho called ill twti of liis friends, aisti Gcriiian arti.sts, and both good musicians. Later on a Gcrmau-Amurioiui artist joined The roor.-i was small, to the ci-odit of the inodest artist. Unlike many of his colleagues, ho did not liire a-siooo studio for Olio yoar and leave it without paying for it, He w-as comoiitod with this holo of li room, that n-as iiii.suilod for a sleeping room. Tlio liuidlord callod it a stvulio. �window-sill. Wliile posing I saw tho granes disappearing in the capacious month of one of the -visitors. It mado my heart feel faint. I could stand it no longer, and before tho artist realized what was going on around him lilm 1 had disappeared, but soon reappeared on - that throne with my bunch of grapes danghng at my side. After a lapse of a few minutes the joke entered into their heads. As I had to keep r.atlior still and keep my moutli open as if singing a romance, those artists thought best to play on tho piano and sing themselves. 'VVe were getting along nicely when a spinster of EO unceremoniously walked into our studio and asked us If wo wore not ashamed to disturb tlio Sabbath with such noises. Aftor sho disappeared we started another annisement. Tho German-American artist took hold of a banjo and began to twang it, but as his legs began to move about, ono artist told him to stand up, and ho would play him anaccompanimentforajig. Tlien it was tho ttu-n of ^he fat neighbor below to oomo up, and, cursing in plain Knglish, told' us to stop or ho would send for the police. Luckily the artist painted the expression of my mouth while it lasted, and the picture was a success. Tho next picture wa,s a young man of the ICth century, standing with his back towards the audience. He had boon reading, and had just gotnptolook over a map that hung on the wall and -was trying to find a particular place or village. His index finger was pressing on tho map. Well, the artist tried several men models, but cither they were too rough or too stout for his costume, so I had to don those knee breeches and slcirt coat and shoes with tho gray wig. Ono day, while I was resting, the party that had ordered tho picture came in and began to chat witli the artist. He loolced at tho picture and was pleased, then, seeing mo reading in a corner, said; "Oh, excuse me, I must not detain you from your work; but I dare say your model has no objection to a littlo rest. Ho must be tired posing standing," . The artist, not thinldng, said; "Oh, sliols used to the business." Tho old gentleman placed his glasses well on his nose and began to inspect mo all over. "Oh," ho said, "is that what you do? Painting men from women, oh? And do you take young boys to pjiint women?" I have posod for almost all tlio lady's portraits in Boston from 1878 to 188!!. 1 have worn lol� of those lino driissos tiiat como from Worth's, and I on two oo-casions wore two drosses that tlio owners never wore boforo. Lots of those beautiful arms nnd bo'soms that are admired at 0 o'clock teas are miide up with silk p.adding.s, and tho artists tiiat saw mo in them_thouclit tliat I could mako could be seen at some of SOME I'llO.MI.VENT MI-BCHANTS WHO WANTED TO ".STIIDV EICUM LIFE." AVhon those visitors got Hoatod on tho musi(-stool anil tho othors on tho M-indinv .sill. 1 bogaii t< By wav, that piiiiio got iifti'.r following my advk'o. 1 told tiio artist that if he-\'.-antod a iiiaiio all ho hud to do was to lot'soniopiaiiorioalor kiio-iv that ho (tho artist) would paint a stuiuiing iiortr.-iil (if hini or (tny member of his fauu-y. in fxohaim'o lor a piano. 'Woll, ill a few diiys lio got liLs customer. I saw tho portrait. The diamond pin-was roally Bravkiiiig in the immaculate bosom. Tho hai-gaiii turned out very well. Artist G. t<i treat mo ^yoll, bought for me a bundi of Mr'.Iiiiva grnpos, wiiioli ho put on tho a sensation if I Boston's soirees. I dress so loose so to preserve my figure that ono day aftor 1 Imd posed for Artist G. for tliat man flgiu-o, ill tiiking oil! tlie pants and shirt, I forgot the suspoii-dcrs. it was in tho afternoon when I went to Ai' P. to pose in a bride co.stume 1 dro])pod those suspenders. God only knows how I did not lose Ihcni in the street! Artist G. meantime had to use some rope until he bought another Pioir. Artist i'. lilted to take a nap in the afternoon. He would give nie a very interesting Frouoli boolv to read, and, placing his watch on a table, would toll nie to waki) liim up at n certain hour. I did this for .several days. But Olio day] got so interested in tho liooU tluit ho awoke by liimBOlf, but it was too iatr; to work. 1 havo posed tor Artist Ten.

Afler my first the artist thought lio oould liu-ish the pioturo from a ciioaper model. 1 lot him do It. At the end of three dnys he sent f(-ir me. Ou that writing table-I ought to say buoy -I found four diiVei-ent hall circles. Tliey were tho clialk marks that tho artl.sf. made around -whei-i' the models sat. Every gh-1 he tried in that pose varied in lorni, and that is tile reason tliat ho liad to hire me at my regular jirice. That inotui-o exhibited ,nt (ho art eluh, and I had oeca.sion to stand lieliind two Bo.stim buds. 'They were discussing tho mermaid. One said: "A'i'hy. Lizzie, do ynu think that there ever existed such a thing us a luerniaiir.'" Tlu^ only aiisw-er she got v.-.-is a pair of liuigliing eyes fixid at lu r.

I am loolcine. down day and night at Boston ami I'iiihideljiliia, as tlie statues on the ofhce, tlii.s city, and on the court house, ^iiilaiielpliia, will prove. 1 am .".o used to pose in undress, that ono day when Sculptor F. asked me to pose for the eyes o! ins last .statue, whiio tiilking I -ii:-''r.'-. 1 ,;. and, pntriug on tho bit of drapery as his flgnros had, I took the pose for the eyes. Neither he nor I thought of it until an ac-quaintanoo of mine called, and, being oi scruptflous mind, she kept behind a' screen while sho tallced to mo. At 4 p. m. tho artist said I might go. It was then that tiio sculptor saw my costume-less garb. As many people know that few can put thoir hands in a igood position, I have been called to poso, and I have iieen iihoto-graphed many times just to give a series of hand positions. 1 started a school of my o-wn, I was everybody-director, cnshior and seoretaiy. I hired a largo room. In it I put tho largest throne the artists over saw. It was covered with white drapery, -with a white background. I started -irith no capital. I wont to seo all tlie artists and explained my idea. If tliey said they would lUco to oome, I made tliom write down their names on my book, together with 40 cents. Tliat 40 cents entitled them to como into my school on the opening iiiglit, and if they brought thoir drawing materials they could draw from the best model I oould get in Boston. I paid .?2 for the uso of the room, S2 for frivo hours to the model, and .?2 for the loan of chairs. Well, on tliat first night I cleared S18 profit. Everybody was pleased. I had tho satisfaction to have seen in my scliool all the best artists and students in Boston together. In a week I received a flattering letter from the students of the Art Museum. You see, this was a good chance for tliem, as they were not allowed to study from female models, altliougli ladies were allowed to study from male models. It only cost tliom 40 cents for two hours' work from good models. It a chance never to bo got in the future. I could havo made several dollai's if I had allowed lu some amateurs (prominent merchants of Bostau), but I told them that I was not runiiiug a menagerie, and had to rofueo them. The gentleman from whom I hired tho room got so excited aliout tho "Ijusiuess," as ho called it, that one niplit as tho students were getting ready to draw, he called them to a corner of tho room, and behind tho screen showed them a nest ol young girls crouched together on tho floor with a comforter over.them. Tliey wore drinking cidor from ono glass. Ho told tho students that those young ladies belonged to respectiihlo families and wished to make pin money. He made them all Btiuid up. They were as God made tliem, or as ho intended tJiom to be. When all tlie class was in tlicso young damsels marched in a file to tlic stage. They all Wfiro liall lilack masks. Onco on the stage they all took the attitudes that freaks gouci-ally take at an exhibition. Tho moment 1 look hold of ono of their hands or limb to luiilto them pose grneofully they stiifeiied so that I had to let go. ,Soino of tlietii must have hoen .super.s, ,-is tlicy iieg.-in to bite their lips and loolced at llie audience. I had to give up trying to make them poso at all. Then the goiitleiiiaii in question began to make somo groups, siinli ris cheap mcelianical pliotograplici-s are v.-ont to do.

One girl had good legs but the rest ot lier figure looicod a.s if it had been stuck on her a few years later. Another looked as if she used :% bust devoloiier a day too long. That cno the goulleiiian put a rope in her hands and pulled her up as to make an angel of lier. She looked like a .hipanese ju,- After nnhourot tlii.s tiresome show tho students chose one, but .she liegiui by hitting, and in a halt hour she in a heap. On lieiug told that the other girls were not of the proper sliitpe, he asked tliem what was the proper measure, and the next day every woman that went in his place of liu.siness, was asked to allow him touieasiire lier. Ono night ho thought of .surjn-ising tiio students. He camo with a clothes liii.sket full of apples and later on ho tapped a keg ol eider. Tliat night I shut iny .school before the time. I found out that the nights I did not use tlie room lie used it in giving shows. Wlien I found what show.M they were 1 quietly sent for my cli.airs and put up a sign that the school wa.s closed.

Houses Eneland Built by Our Haw ITorefatliors. Mr. AVoedon says that in 1745 not in Maine had a pane of glass ia it. The rich merohautB, however, had beamn slnoQ 1720 to build relatively sumptuous dwellings. The use of briok for tho better typo of houses was woll established in Boston aftor the fire of 1711. Of the many fine throe-.story mansions, bmlt not Only in Boston, but in Nc-\vport, Salem, and other lessor tomis, tho Brom-flo d and Fanouil homo.steads in Boston were oxaniDlos, and the Ghamplin, or Cliesoboroug i house, still standing m Newport, is a cap tal stiociiucn. There -^vas a wide hall from fiont to roar, and' tho staircase was roomy and elegant. Wainscots rose frOm floor to coiling, carving in roliol adornec tlio mantels, and broad window seats loo cod out upon well-ordered grounds. It is said that there were moro of theso largo mansions built about 1700 by wealthy inaividuals than tho general condition ot tho community would justify. Tho meeting-house at this epoch -was improved and elevated in stj'lo. Tiio Old South, built in Boston in 17.^0, is an extant example ot a type that prevailed for about 100 yonrs. Iving's chapel was built ot stone in Boston ml749. o not confuse THE MUTUAL LIFE INSUR-' ANCE COMPANY , OF NEW YORK, with any other Company of apparently similar name, but less magnitude.
