Mr. Scholten's collection was much admired. It was so varied in character as to be an important feature in the department. The photographs in water colors were peculiarly meritorious, among which were likenesses of Father Ryan, Dr. Lemoine's children, cabinet head of Richard J. Compton, and the family of Mr. Platte in a grouP. The likeness of Miss Hardcastle painted on porcelain, was very beautiful, and finished with rare care and completeness. The imperial card photographs were also excellent, and may be really called perfect in finish and fidelity of likeness. Mr. Scholten took quite a number of premiums, and his collection was plentifully bedecked with blue ribbons.
