Description A Bmket of Chips uninhabited locality will appreciate the joke.* But at the end of the destination we found cones available and the children (*Almost anything can be bought there now, were happy. 1932.)' Every mile of the way had great interest to me as I had travelled that road as a child with my father. I could tell my own family of all the interesting places: "There is where the Indian grave was"; "At the foot of the hill is where my father killed the rattle snake with his lash whip"; "There is the place where a man was stalled and his horses could not budge.

Ruth posed for Wonder- hzd (1908) and Mother's Little Helper (1909). These works effectively capture two distinct aspects of his daughter's personality during this period. The first "catches Ruth . . . in wonderland," and it does suggest that haze of day dream via technique and expression. The other is a sharply defined and patterned view of the girl canning preserves in an interior near a window that exposes a lightly and tonally treated landscape beyond (wholly in contrast to the previous picture's firm definition within the room).
