CURRENT TALK OF THINGS PRESENT
ANT) TO COME. !
A study of English pleasure gardens has been
ri ade by Rose Standish Nichols, in a book of ;
that name which the Macmillan Company baa
issued. Many illustrations from photographs
and drawings of various styles of existing Eng- '
;. ti gardens made by the author give the vol. !
u'me additional interest. Eleven plans are sup- .
lied by Allen H. Cox. Descriptions and discus- j
gjons of the several manners of laying out gar- i
dens, "ill to be seen or preserved in historical •
accounts, are given, the monastic, mediaeval, i
Tudor. Elizabethan. Stuart and Italian forms j
i! betas represented. !
The popularity of the older novelists among
suthors of tiM present day is illustrated in a
ft 'y or a vote taken at a dinner given by the
late Harold Frederics In London some years
e go. The guests numbered twenty-four, and
were all authors of some prominence. Someone
ißjajested In the course of the evening that they
take a ballot for their favorite novel. When
ft? votes were read it was found that all but
two of f he company had agreed on Charles
Kea4e's "The Cloister and the Hearth."
Esther Singleton's "Social New-York Under
the Georges" is being published this week by
D. ArP' itTr> '' & £*°- Miss Singleton has chroni
cled the conditions of living in this city In the
period from 1714 to 1776, when there existed a
godal i-; i^ndor here not far removed from
that of the London of the day. The book rests
on original sources, contemporaneous mention
jr. wills, inventories, letters and newspapers.
Photographs of relics in furniture, china, plate
and costumes illustrate the text.
"Irl?."' A. W. Pinero'e play. Is published by R.
H. Russell In book form.
IT. M Ramsay has written a book which is to
it published by G. P. Putnam's Sons on the
"Education of Christ." The writer is known
for his Btudy of the personality of St. Paul and
of the credibility of the narrative of St. Luke's
Gospel and other religious books. He was for
merly professor of classical archaeology at Ox
ford, and in 1594 was Levering lecturer in Johns
Hopkins University. He is now professor of
humanity at Aberdeen.
Samuel McChord Ore. her*. hose Juvenile
ftory. "Miss Muffet's Christmas Party," has
be»r published by Houghton, Mlfflln & Co.,
has had charge of the First Parish in Cam
rri<ige, Mass.. since IflM. and has served for
three years as one of the preachers to the uni
versity. He was born in 1857 at Oswego, Til.,
and ppent his early life In Ohio. He was gradu
ated from Princeton in 1*74. and studied for
the ministry at the Union Theological Seminary
in this city. He has had churches in Eureka.

Ft. Paul. Minn. The cover design, lining pages,
and fall page and text illustrations for "Miss
Muff-n's Christmas Party" are drawn by Miss
Olive M. Long.
Th«" latest adventure which has befallen th»
book on "Luncheons." by Mary Roland, is rather
more apt and appetizing than some of the uev
eral previous ones, chronicled and attested as
true. Orders for the details of publishing have
resulted in various incongruous substances being
put in "Luncheons." The other day the printer,
thinking it his turn for his little joke, sent up
a batch of proofs. Just taken from the plates,
separated sheet from sheet by wrappers printed
for a well known manufacturer of Worcester
D^uglap Zabribkie Doty has published through
J. F. Taylor <£. Co. some biographical matter
from the day* of the flood, which has not before
found Us way into print. One Andy, it seems,
a person not mentioned In the older accounts,
teas nevertheless present on the Ark, and had
a number of strange adventures, which Mr.
Doty has now «=et down, and of which Louis
M. darkens has drawn a eet of illustrations.
There la ■ port of person whn thinks that no
reviewer ever reads a V-ook and that no pub
lisher ever unties the manuscript of an un
familiar author. Quite possibly, if his true
opinions could be had in detail, it would be
found that in his e=timate no fisherman ever
went to sea and no huttf-r ever «aw a churn.
Against this sort of delusion a reader for a
publishing house '.vfi>i exclaiming the other day
v.-ith some little beat. "I ran see how euch an
idea might originate," said he, "but I cannot
f» why it should continue indefinitely. If I
could Just have some of these seers In a room
with four vra!!s and nothing else I should be
glad to have half an hour's earnest and con
tinuous conversation with them. It would ease
Try mind considerably. Why, if you had any
idea of the other tide of the scoro! What is an
author to a publisher? A man of the necessary
talent to produce stuff that is decidedly worth
reading; not simply worth writing, for a per
fonal satisfaction enters there, but worth read
ing. Well, now, when the present 'familiar
euthdrs.' are all gathered to their fathers, what
1s to become of the incorporated publishing
houses? The truth i?, of course, as has been
Paid often f-nough, that publishers are on ■
still hunt for new authors all the time. But I
think it v.jii bear emphasizing to point out
that authors, as a clafes. can be the most un
rrofitable, disappointing workers in existence.
"A r.ew writer appears, say. with a piece of
*wk that sets all the office to going about and
patting one another on the back. Nothing is
too good for that follow; he's the Benjamin of
the bouse. Every facility and encouragement
*?*■ rendered him. And what is hip return? It
hapjiens time and time again that such a man
never wrttea another chapter worth considera
tion, though he works like a beaver at it, and
preserves a lasting impression that we publish
ers ought in simple duty to print and sell every
line he is guilty of. That Is the one-book author.
tVe've classified them already. Then there is
th» young writer of decided promise, who gets
to a <-<-rta;,i point, after a d^al of nursing and
attention, and newr gets further, never man

fcever understands, either, and considers the
Publishers a finicky ■** of rascals, who have
conspired to waste his precious time. One hears
a good deal of the misery of having a work of
Eenlus come home to roost. There is a little
«* th« hope deferred which maketh the heart
f^k in reading manuscript after manuscript,
one recurring disappointment."
The work which Bernhard Berenson devoted
t( > th» two volumes of "Drawings of the Floren
ce Painters." which are being issued by E. P.
i^utton & Co., has been extensive. The need
v*Bv *B felt for ■ critical estimate of the drawings

.Lille. Vienna and Haarlem, and the British

fication. Mr. Berennon hah devoted much study
10 the task of discriminating between the genu
toe drawings of the artirtß named and those
d «ie by inferior associates. He has made a
"catalogue raisonne." wherein he states his rea
*°ns for the attribution he gives each drawing.

NO BOOK FOR YEARS HAS BEEN SO FAVORABLY NOTICED AS
The LITTLE WHITE BIRD
,v "There is an exquisite tenderness throughout these chapters that makes one linger over
them. Bays the X. V. Commercial Advertiser.
This is the note common to ill the reviews.
"The sweetest, most delicately fanciful, most exquisitely whimsical bit of writing one
can possibly conceive,'' says the Interior.
And so it goes.
IN ENGLAND. ALSO.

Fir K^neim Dlgby" and "The Life of » PHg"
The book, perforce, concerns Itself mainly with
a succession of literary flirtations that have
probably rarely noen equalled, giving their his
tcry in gossipy and rather romantic detail.
In the "Study of Prose Fiction" which Bliss
Perry ha* published through Houghton, Mifflin
A- Co . he refers to the present habit of staging
popular novels. Except when th^ novel is slav
ishly followed, there is, of course, nothing re
markable in th» trick of t^kinK material read
by the public, or pnrt of it. for presentment be
fore It tn the theatre. The practice is at lenst a*
old as Shakespeare and not essentially unsuc
cessful Henry Arthur .Tones has- spoken, in one
of his intense and. hasty polemics on the the
atre, of the difficulty the playwright meets In
th« necessity of "chopping his story up into
acts." This ts rather the method employed by
the commonplace dramatlzer. Mr. Perry says:
A novel is nn more lik» a play thin a bird Is
like a fish. Any attempt to turn one into the
other is apt to result In a sort of flying rtsh, a
bf twixt-and-betwecn thing, capnhle. indeed, of
both swimming and flyinc but pood ;) t neither.
Pr. F. A. Lucas's popular work on prehistoric
animals \n this country is published by the Ap
pletons this week. Dr. Lucas is curator of the
division of comparative anatomy in the Na
tional Museum at Washington. Besides his
various department and scientific activities he
was one of the men named on the committee to
investigate the condition of the fur seal hTd r 'f
the Pribyloff Islands.
ZOLA'S FIRST ARTICLE.
A SOUVENIR OF HIS DATS OF HARDSHIP
The first of Zola's Parisian writings was
printed on January 21. 1865, in the columns of
the "Petit Journal" from th» tiles of which It
has been brought to light by "Le Petit Temp?."
and republished with an interesting correspond
ence. At that time the novelist was employed
by Hachette. and was not rich in this world's
goods. He nursed a hope of becoming a regular
contributor to pome newspaper to add to his In
come and assist his literary work Eugene Pa*.
the secretary of the "Petit Journal." was his
friend, and was approached with the manuscript
of the short sketch which Zola Mid seemed th*
sort of thing serviceable to th-> paper. Th»
sketch was an earnest of more to come, if the
paper eared for It; It was tendered as a speci
men of what he could supply if regularly em
ployed. It was duly printed, to Zola's great d«
ligrht, and after that his signature appeared in
the journal usually every week In the company
of such B8 Timothee Trimm. Alexandra Dumas.
Charles Monselet, ABsolant and others.
In the letter accompanying the manuscript
Zola says to Paz: "You know what my ideal is;
to be accepted as a regular contributor, to have
a definite number of articles, and to get regular
pay. . - You carry Caesar and hi? fortunes,
bring them safe to harbor." And In a postscript
he adds that the article Is not to be considered
from the standard of actuality. "It is a simple
fantasy upon an event that is not too far re
moved from US. That's all." When the "Petit
Journal" for January 21 appeared and Zola
found himself there in print, he sat down direct
ly, so it would seem, and dashed off a note of
effusive thanks to Paz. He promised in this
communication to finish another sketch he had
spoken of in the previous note, and send it in
promptly. He notes a misprint, where the poor
parents settled down to watt for the coming of
day "sont assis" was set for I'se sont assls."
which, as Zola says, "spoils the phrase some
what." The sketch follows.
Before the month of January is passed let us
recall a characteristic trait of New year's Day
VhTrTrst of January, it is full dress In. the ■gar
rets of Paris. The beggars put on their finest
£« array themselves In their tatters to go and
extend to the passer-by the salutations of mis
ery and ask their New Year's gift, with hand
held out and face anxious and fawning. On that
day begging is tolerated, is permitted to *how

gravely, not seeking themselves the public sym
pathy, they appear to be calling on the crowd
and presenting their daughter.
The child stops young and old: she addresses
herself by preference to those who carry bun
dles, and her blue eyes say to them with en
dearment: "You who have Just spent a loula for
the joy of one of your sisters, won't you give
me a poor little sou for my New Year's gift?"
How can one fail to listen to the mutfi prayer
of her smile? The pieces of copper fall thick
in her hand. She gathers her gifts sou by sou,
here and there, and thus she tastes till evening
the pleasures of that day. which did not seem to
have begun for her.
That night the poor people have fir* and
bread. The child, proud, has counted her treas
ure, and she has been able for one moment to
think herself loved by a whole city.
Yes. on the first of January, it is we. the for
