Description
Full Text

The Public School Art league lost three valuable pictures in the fire at Byron C. Stolp School two weeks ago. Two of these, "Lincoln" by St. Gaudens, and "Washington" by Gilbert Stewart were photographic reproductions and can be replaced, but the gift of Mr. William Schmedtgen was one of his own water colors and its loss is irreparable. This picture was painted by Mr. Schmedtgen in Santiago and was of historical as well as artistic value and is a great loss to the school. Those interested in the public schools are glad to know that the Art league is renewing its activities. The school rooms where the children spend so much of their time have been made much more pleasant through their efforts and it its hoped that everyone in the village will feel it is his business to keep this commendable work going. The annual membership fee will bring a large return in some of the things "most worth while."
