Mme. Rosa Bonbeur (Rosa stood tor Rosalie) was not without a sense of humor, so it is told of her that while presiding over a school of design in Paris, the pupils being girls, the artist was disgusted with the class, because, imitating .their teacher, the young women had cut their tíair short. "Grand Dieu!" crled Rosa Bonheur. "How horrid you all look! This is not a class of boys. You silly creatures, let your hair alone and do your best so as to retain all the advastages ei your sex."
