THE DAMAGED PICTURE.

CAPABLE OF REPAIR

(Per Press Association—Copyright.)

LONDON, March 11

The National Art Gallery was fairly filled when a lady • stood before Velasquez's " Venus." She- studied it for a few moments, being watched by an attendant policeman.

While detectives were in an adjoining gallery she drew a small hatchet from her muff, and dealt the picture a terrific blow, shattering the glass, and slashing the canvas with five less powerful blows delivered in rapid succession. The attendant policeman then seized her.

It was ascertained that the cuts were so straight and clean that the damage may possbly, be repaired for jbioo:-"-' .

The cuts mad© in the picture ■ are six inches long, all in the figure.' There is little doubt that they can be repaired so that the slashes will,.be practically unnoticeable.
