Perhaps there is no existing work of art b**tter and more widely known to the world than this ma*t*rp!*ce of Leonardo. Magnificent line engrax trigs from it and wrought wlih an • uracy and a lw * r of xpre lon worthy .f the l*est days * f the mgraxer's art, have msde this work familiar In hundred* of thousands of hemes of the wonlihv in all lands Even more humble dwellings are mad* glad by a more or l**** crude memorial of It in m chromolithograph, or a wo*wicut, or a photograph from an engraving Its subject is easily uriderrtotxl by all; the sorrow and solemnity of the event rei rreenfed In it app**! to all minds, the simplest as well as the most intellectual This accounts for it- general popularity.

A quarter of a century ago an observ ant writer said Ilia? at that time the painted surface wna scaling off. not very rapidly, hut toressantty. and he added, in h sadly phophetle tone, (hat "this Is. perha i*s. th* laet generation whtxse eyre w ill h* hold its b* aut|es. even yet wo trans cendent tn the c Irreparable 4e< ay " Three vear sago I saw it. un i. after long looking at It thought that three fears w*re exaggerated After a lengthened visit to it now I fear that the gloomy pre diction Is becoming rapidly fulfilled.

In all the range of art drawings there Is. perhaps, m* one equal to this The btaek chtrcoal lines nre washed with jink color, which removes thrtr harshness, and at the distance of a few steps you might imagine It a fine though fa-ntly tinted water-c.*kr drawing.
