An interesting book, entitled "Our

and Attract Them to Our Homes," by
D. Larige, instructor in nature study in

the Aubudon societies in more than

Shakespearean criticism by Huxley is
something of a novelty, yet a bit of 1t
appears in a recent book, "Country
Matters in Short," by W. F. Collier.
He had based a daring botanical the
ory, which he referred to Huxley, upon
these lines of Sheakespeare:
The mooti, methinks, lioks with a watery
And when one weeps, weeps every little
Lamenting some enforced chastity.
Huxley replied: "Your Shakespeare
parable is charming, but I am afraid
it must! be put among the endless things
that are read into the 'divine Will- j
lams,' as the Erenchmen call him.
There 'was no knowledge of the sexes of ;
plants in Shakespeare's time —barring
some vague suggestion about figs and
dates.' Even in the eighteenth century,
after Linnaeus, the observations of
Spengel, who was a man of genius, and
first properly explained the action of
insects, were set aside and forgotten.
I take it that Shakespeare is really al
luding to the 'enforced chastity' of Dian
(the moon). The poets ignore that lit
tle Endymion business when they like."

Speaking of Shakespeare and French
views of him, a London paper makes
some amusing extracts from a "Vie
Veridique de William Shakespeare," by
M. George Duval, lately published in
Paris. This, for example, about the
poet's departure from Stratford:
"The inhabitants, upon the threshold
of their doors, awaited his passage, in
order to wish a pleasant journey to a
child of the country, obliged to ex
And this is the explanation of
Shakespeare's long absence from his
"Compelled to divide his life between
work and pleasure, to compete with his
rivals, a family would have been a
hindrance. Besides, it was necessary
for him to associate on intimate terms
with such personages as Essex and
Southampton, among whom the daugh
ter of M. Hataway would probably have
cut a-rather poor figure.""

In the just published autobiography

an epistle in which Merivale tells an

Rudyard Kipling is both wise and
kind in making the autograph fiend
play for his—or her—whistle. The
"Tribune'st" fresh air fund has already
benefited by his ingenious system, and
we are glad to see that he continues to
! make his signature an agent of help to
the needy. A young woman in Phil
adelphia, it is reported, lately sent to
the author a request for an autograph,
inclosing a stamped and addressed en
velope, as is her custom. In reply she
received a printed slip from Mr. Kip
ling's Secretary, setting forth in brief
that Mr. Kipling would be pleased to
furnish his autograph Upon payment
of $2.50 to any charity which the col
! lector might prefer, a receipt for which
should iramediately. be sent to him. She
gave the money to the Children's
j Country Week Association, forwarded
] the receipt to Kipling, and the other
day received the autograph.

Miss Kate Sanborn in a sketch of
Sarah Orne Jewett said: "I feel a cer
tain shrinking from attempting a per
: sonal sketch of this gifted woman,
whom we all love for her abso
lutely perfect pictures of New England
life." However, a few facts may fitly
be given for the information of those
of her readers who do not yet know
Miss Jewett's birthplace and home is
a beautiful colonial house built over
one hundred and fifty years ago in the
old town of South Berwick, Maine. Her
father, Dr. Theodore H. Jewett, was a
highly educated physician, and a Pro
i fessor in the medical department of
! Bowdoin College. Miss Jewett as a
child was delicate and has been de
scribed by those who knew her then as
being dreamy and imaginative, amus
ing herself by the hour in telling her
self stories. She was encouraged to
lead an open-air life, and the woods and
hills of the old town were her play
ground. She used frequently to ac
company her father on his drives, and
"to drive from place to place with a
father like this, to talk with the famil
ies while the doctor saw the patients,
to listen on the road to all he said of
i people and of nature, this was an im
i portant part of Miss Jewett's training
for authorship." . In "A Country Doc
tor," we are given'a glimpse of this
happy companionship, and the picture
of the "Doctor" is doubtless a portrayal
of her father.
Owing to her delicate health she was
unable to attend, school regularly, and
most of her education was received at
home under the wise supervision of her
father. Reading was her favorite pas
time, and she browsed at will among
her father's books.
Her first story' for "The Atlantic
Monthly" was accepted before she was
! twenty. She had no friends "at court,"
and it was her own excellent work
which gained for her the cordial appre
ciation which has continued to be so
marked. "Deephaven" was her first
success, and since then she has pub
lished through Messrs Houghton, Mif
flin & Co. a long list of books to which
she has recently added a collection of
short stories entitled "The Queen's Twin
j and Other Stories" with two new chap
ters continuing "The Country of the
Pointed Firs." and a sequel to "Betty
Leicester" called "Betty Leicester's
Miss Jewett spends a large part of
j her time at the old home in Maine, but
she spends some months of each year
lat the delightful home of Mrs. Fields,
jon Charles street in Boston. Here she
i does a great deal of writing, her work
| ing hours being in the afternoon.
Miss Jewett has traveled extensively
in this country, and has been abroad
several times in the company of Mrs.
James T. Fields.
; In personal appearance Miss Jewett is
; tall and dignified, with a high-bred
j grace and courtesy of manner which
' : charm all with whom she comes in
; contact. • She has a bright, Diquant face
that lights up beautifully as she talks,
and a low pleasant voice. In conver
sation she is bright and interesting, se
lecting her words with a quick discrim
ination which shows her appreciation
Of the use and power cf language.
Flashes of wit and humor illumine
what she says, and the tone of her mind
is both helpful and suggestive.
In one of the last letters written
by James Russell Lowell was the fol
lowing, addressed to the London pub
lishers of some Of Miss Jewett's books:
"I am very glad 'to hear that Miss
Jewett's delightful stories are to be re
printed in England. »Nothing more
pleasingly characteristic of rural life
in New England has been written, and
they have long been valued by the ju

. Notes and Queries: Readers
of "The City of Dreadful Night" will
remember that the papers in which :

cutta beauty of the last century. Tt
was "a big and stately tomb" in the
Park Street Cemetery, "sacred to
'•Lucia,* who died in 1776 A. D.. aged
Bg?' that inspired this little history. In
Mr. Kipling's fancy Lucia was "a fair
Kentish maiden, sent out, at a cost of
£500, English money, to wed the man
of her choice," who, we learn further
on, waa a "sober factor," or senior

civilian in the service of the East India
Company. Now that these papers have
been published in a form that elevates
them to the rank of a classic a few lines
of commentary on this passage may not
be unacceptable. Julian James Cotton.
Lan able young civilian belonging to the
Madras Presidency, has been lately con
tributing to the pages of the 'Calcutta
Review" a series of paper.? descriptive
of the social side of Anglo-India in for
mer days, and belonging, therefore, to
the genre of which Dr. Busteed's
"Echoes of Old Calcutta" and Sir W.
W. Hunter's "Thackerays in India" are
perhaps the most conspicuous examples.
His last deals with the career of Kitty
Kirkpatrick, "the original, so far as
there was an original, of Blumine in
Carlyle's 'Sartor Resartus.' " Carlyle.
as readers of his "Diary" do not need
to be told, first met this charming crea
ture at the house of Edward Irving, and
retained a tender recollection of her till
his death. Mr. Cotton, in introducing
this lady, moralizes a l'ttle on tbe small
chance of immortality that Anglo-In
dian heroines obtain, and instances
among the few that are st'll remem
bered Mme. Grand, the wife of Talley
rand; Sterne's "Eliza," and the fair
and unfortunate Rose Ayliner. To
this slender list the name of "Lucia
may, thanks to Mr. Kipling's genius, be
added. But though the circumstances
may be true, the facts, as related by Mr.
Kipling, are imaginary. Mr. Cotton
shows that Lucia was no factor's wife,
but was married to Robert Palk, the
Judge of the Court of Cutcherry, who,
in 1772, arrested th* Maharajah Nun
comar for contempt of court. She was
i the daughter of Rev. Dr. Stonehouse.
and, as the inscription on the tomb
stone tells tts, was born, not in Kent,
but in Northamptonshire. Mr. Cotton
adds that there is an elaborate engrav
ing of the torr.b of Lucia's mother in Dr.
Hervey's well known "Meditations."
Whether "Hoch!" or "Hurrah!" is
the proper ejaculation after a toast is
i proposed is a question that is distuib
i ing Germany. Prince Ludwig of Ba
! varia at the Munich banquet in honor
!of the Kaiser's birthday avoided the
point by shouting, "Hoch, hurrah!'!
