Mr. Morris Moore's picture of "Apollo and Marsyas " has

lately been making a sensation in Rome, and 80 many people ask permission to see it that it has been difficult to comply with ,all requests and still keep the exhibition a private one. The President of the Academy of St. Luke and Professor Minardi, and other men of the very highest eminence, are loud in their expressions of regret that the picture is not in the Vatican, where it would supply a long-missing link in the series of masterpieces by Raphael.
