LITE EAR Y XOTES.
Agnes and Eperton Castle "have gone back to
the epoch In English social history In which
they are most at "homo for the stuff of their
latest book, which the Frederick A. Stokea
Company will publish next month. This will
b« called "The Heart of Lady Anne." and it is
described as a new story of "Sweet Kitty Bel
lairs." In which that sprightly heroine Is sup
plied with new companions amid new scenes.
Prom the same publishers there will also come
In October a new volume of short stories by
Mr Robert Hienens. We have read the tale
whirh gives the volume its title. "The Black
Spaniel." and from its remarkable excellence
we judge that this riever novelist is going to
lose none of the ground gained by the publica
tion of "The Garden of Allah."
Mr. Sargent's popularity as a painter of ce
lebrities Js such that in time he will be repre
sented not only in the public naileries, where
the merit of his work would naturally win him
a welcome, but In many a public Institution not
exclusively associated wit"h modern art. It
seems that among the many noted individuals
who have sat to him we are to reckon. M.
Edouard Paillerm. the author of "Le Monde
ou l'On s'Enrml*." and the half-length painted
of that brilliant dramatist by the American
artist has just been presented by Mme. Pail
leron to the Musee de Versailles. Pailleron's
home was for many years established in the
town so beloved by the kings and courtiers of
the old regime.
Sev«*ral years have parsed since Mrs. Helen
Hay Whitney piihHshed her first volume of
poetry. In the mean time her gift has matured.
and the thin volume of "Sonnets and Songs' 1
CHarper & Brothers), which she has just brought
out. discloses graver and more subtle thought,
and a firmer, if not a more graceful, touch.
The burden of many of these new pieces is pen
sive to the point of melancholy, but, as In their
predecessors, the emotion has none of that
flaoeldity -which is so common in the minor
verse of the day. There is nothing morbid here.
"Wlien the author hits upon a rather fantastic
motive she brings from its core an idea which
is a* finely suggestive as it is poetically felic
itous. Witness this example:
ETOILES D'EXFER.
!Toe four wide winds of evening have their stars,
Fashioned in fire, in purity of snow.
Tossed to their height by endless avatars—
These all the righteous know.
What of the stars of Hades? On the glornn
The outcast see them shine like angels eyes,
«lnd In the living night that is their tomb
They dream of Paradise.
They know the stars of Hades. They are deeds,
Wickedly born, which cwie to good at last —
■Talr blossoms spring from villainy of weeds.
Rest— end redeem the paat.
■ In the second division of Mrs. Whitney's book,
from which this is taken, we observe nearly
everywhere the same balance between Imagina
tion and technique. The thirty sonnets, on the
other hand, rarely leave so satisfactory an im
presslon. Mrs. Whitney ia too instinctively skil
ful in the exercise of her craft to do violence to
the most difficult of all the poetic forms through
tactless handling, or to fail through mere weak
ness, yet there is unmistakably something want-
Ing to these polished compositions. Perhaps it
is the bold constructive power which will make
a sonnet good sometimes despite the absence
of charm. Perhaps It is the noble music which
la inseparable from the form in its highest
estate. More probably the shortcomings of this
part of the book are due to tho author's having
■written It with less of the artless Inspiration
that has done so much for her songs. The son
nets command a certain respect as weU pon
dered and workmanlike productions. The songs
gain more than the reader's respect; they gain
his admiration, for their appeal is spontaneous
and sweet: they are tenderly Joyous, as in 'Tho
Ribbon." or they are rather grimly meditative,
as In the lines. -To a Moth," but always they
sing themselves, and express an interesting
temperament in terms that are interesting with
no hint of effect. We must quote one more
specimen of Mrs. Whitney at her best:
THE RIBBON.
Ah dearest, dearest, not alone
I face the day's white monotone.
The lair bright ribbon of the hours—
A mountain trook bestead through flowers-
Runs, a dear line, from you to you.
There is no smallest need I <io
ThroVh which the ribbon does not run,
A surer string to pearls of sun.
So glad I watch the momenta fly
Across the bigh-hung summer sky.
■ ; Till in a radiant flame they burn.
To mark the hour of your return.
It is good news that the Dents are to issue, m
London, an edition of Miss Isabel Hapgood's
translation of the works of Tourgenieff. pub
lished by the Scrfbners, in sixteen volumes, with
an "introduction by Mr. Henry James. That is
the kind of literary achievement which we like
to have placed before our English cousins from
time to time. It is better calculated to give
them a correct idea of our way of doing things
than are three-fourths of the novels which we
eend them every year. Miss Hapgood's version
of the great Russian Is a brill t ] lece of work,
and we believe it wi'l prove a? bu< cessful among
English readers a? it has proved on this side of
the water. Tl> ' °n will, of course, be.
like our own, luxuriously printed and bound.
In the a:. there is no teacher like

an occasional dip into the literature of the sub

dealing with great collectors. Mr. Slater tel!s an
old but always fascinating story of Charles
Kodier, fascinating because it gives so vivid a
senee of what the true passion of the collector
means.

when In the chapter on "Strange Books' he
alludes to books bound In human skin— which,
by the way. he says are not so scarce as might
be supposed— he takes pains To tell us where,
some specimens may be found. M. Flarrunarion,

of the volume before us Is devoted to subjects
•which seem, by contrast, commonplace.
Mr. Slater gives abundant information as to
the external characteristics of books, sizes and
similar points; he treats of -water marks, title
pages and colophons; and. besides manuscripts.
Illustrated books and bindings, he tells us of
some of the celebrated presses and of some of
the more important auction sales. His book
brims over with useful facts and, as we have in
dicated, the facts are pleasantly presented. We
have only one quarrel with him. Since he has
seen fit to mention "American Book Prices Cur
rent." and the "Auction Prices of Books'* now
in course of publication by Podd, M^ad & Co.,
it swms a pity that he could not find space In
which to name the accomplished editor of those

have won her pom<» popularity, has made more

firio Diaz. She Is compiling it with his sanc
tion. She has been his guest in Mexico, and
has had access, through his courtesy, to all tha
documents necessary for the authoritative ex
ecution of her task.
"'French Profiles'* (Dodd. Mead & Co.) Is
a book of essays by Mr. Edmund Gosse on
modern French novelists and poets, most of
whom are still living. We say "essays" -with
more amiability than accuracy, for several of
these chapters appear to have been put to
gether by the easy process of stringing thfl
author's old newspaper reviews into line. If
they w r ere extraordinary reviews it would not
matter. As it happens, Mr. Gosse Is not ono
of those critics whoee every fugitive paper is
worth reading. We find In the table of contents
some Inspiring chapter headings. "Alfred de
Vigny." "Barbey d'Aurfvilly." "The Irony of
M. Anatole France." and "Pierre Loti." but
when we turn to the chapters themselves we
find nothing better than ordinary journalism.
The author has nothing new to tell us— unless
it is. perhaps, in his account of the short ptorles
of Zola, which treat of a pnase of the French
man's work less familiar than that represented
by his novels— and he has no charm of style
with which to throw a glamour over his conven
tional observations.
We speak thus of the literary criticism of
which the book is practically made. But sand
wiched in between the two halves of the mass
of commonplace there is a bit of actuality, "A
First Sight of Verlaine," which is worth read
ing. It commemorates an April holiday spent
with Mr. Henry Harland among the poetio
Symbolists and Decadents of Paris, culminating
In an interview, at the Cafe Soleil d'Or. with the
chief rabbi of that astounding Sanhedrim. Says
Mr. Gosse:
Where I sat, by the elbow of M. Moreas, I was
opposite an open door, absolutely dark. leading 1
down, by oblique stairs^ to th^ ct-liar. As I idly
watched this square of blackness I suddenly saw
some ghostly shape fluttering at the bottom of it.
It took the form of a strange bald head, l>obbing
close to the ground. Although It was so dim arid
vague, an idea crossed :ny mind. Not daring to
speak, I touched M. Mor6as. and so drew his at
tention to it. ••Pas un mot. pas i;n ge<=te. Mon
sieur!" he whispered, and then, instructed in the
guile of his race, insidias Danaum, the eminent
author of "Lea Cantilenes" rose, making a vague
detour toward the street, and then plunged at the
cellar door. There was a prolonged scuffle and a
rilling downstair*; then M. More.as reappeared
triumnhant; behind him something flopped up out
of the darkness like an owl— timid, shamhliner
figure in a BOft Mack hat. with jerking h.xnds. and
it peeped with intention to disappear agnin. But
there were cries of "Venez d"ne. Mattr*-." and by
and by Verlaine was persuaded to emerge and to
sit by me. . ... ,
I had been prepared for =tran?e eccentricities of
garb, but he waa very decently dressed ; . he t re
ferred at once to the fact, and explained that this
waa the suit which had been bought for him to
lecture In in B^leium. He was particularly proud
of a re.nl white shirt; "Cest ma chemise de con

UNION LEAGUE ORGANIZER DEAD.
Ellis Yarnall, of Philadelphia, Dies in Club
house in That City.
Philadelphia, Sept. 19.— Ellis Yarnall. a well known
citizen of this city and one of the founders of tho
Union League of Philadelphia, died suddenly to
day in the clubhouse of the Union 'Lmzuo. Ho
Ighty-seven years old. Only two of the
founders of the Union League are now living.
Mr Yarnall was a member of the dtieeatinn that
went to Mew-York in January, 18S3. to organize the
Union League In that ci\v. He waa a nephew of
Lucretia Mott, the abolitionist. He was secretary
ol the Freedman Relief Society during the Civil
War. In the Rebellion he went to England In the
jj terest of the Northern cause. Mr. i'arnall was
a manufacturing chemist. He was a man of large
means and a liberal contributor to charity.
TEST MEDICINE CASE LIKELY.
Makers of Spirituous Cures Will Take Tax
Ruling to Court, Says Mr. Yerkes.
Washington, Sept. 19.— 1n response to Inquiry
made to-day as to the effect of his ruling, made on
September 12. regarding the sale of proprietary and
patent medicines, composed la:gely of distilled
spirits and spirituous mixtures, Mr. Yc-rkes, Com
missioner of Internal Revenue, said:
In my judgment there Is a possible rni.->unde:-
ptandlng- regarding the matter. I simply ruled that
manufacturers of compounds 'of the character
namt-d must pay to the government, under the fed
eral statute, the special tax required of wholesale
liquor dealers and rectifiers. In addition, it require^
the payment by ihe retail dealer who handles these
goods of the special tax required of retailers,
amounting to $25 a year. The ruling wa9 based on
my construction of the statute, in \i<»w of the
character of some of these compounds.
Further, this ruling, like all others made by the
bureau, was subject to revision In the federal
courts; that doubik-Kf" a case would be promptly
tak»n into court wherein the validity of this con
struction of the statute would be considered Should
such action be take,n, every aid would be given to
secure a prompt hearing. This was the course
taken by the banks wh«n 1 ruled that under the act
of 1888 the undivided profit account of banks waa
subject to tax. This waa also the course taken
when I ruled in IM2 that oleomargarine colored
through the use of palm oil. or artificially colored
butter, was «uhl«rt to a tai of 10 centa n pound.
In these onses. nppeal was made to the federal
courts, and the rightfulnesa of the internal reve
nue bureau's construction of the law was deter
mined. When these rases r«>a<-h the court th"re
are other questions in connection with the federal
statute controlling !n this matter, or. which ludi< la]
construction will he asked.
Mr. Yerkes addded that h« would proceed as
rapidly ac possible through the use of the chemical
laboratory of his bureau, to determine which of
the?.-" alcoholic compounds would fall within the
scope of I;he ruling of September 12. that full in
formation would b» given to manufacturers and
retail dealers of the results reached, although it
was possible that by December 1. <hf date orla:
inallv fixed by him for the ruling to be effective
the ufner- would not have concluded investigation
of ail th« various co.t^iounds referred to.
NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER -'<>. 1905.
FEVER FIGHTER A HERO.
Physician Falls a Victim to His
Devotion to Duty.
(By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
New-Orleans, Sept. 19. -A story of devotion
to duty comes to light through the illness of Dr.
C. M. Shanely, the physician who has been in
charge of the fever situation in the Barataria
district In the annals of this year's visitation
of the plague there will be recorded many in
stances of forgetting self amid the general deso
lation in fever ridden spots, and of thinking
and doing only for those in distress. Few inci
dents will stand out more conspicuously on the
page of yellow fever history than the work of
Dr. Shanely and his untiring devotion to a
stricken people's cause.
A month ago Dr. Shanely. living with his wife
and children on the Ida Plantation, at Barataria,
volunteered to assist Dr. Brady in handling the
yellow fever situation that had developed in the
lake and bayou section of the parish. Though
unacclimated, being a native of South Dakota,
Dr. Phanoly plunged in, declaring that, as medi
cines, physicians and nurses would be needed for
the afflicted, it was every man's duty to lend his
help in every way possible.
Dr. Shanely was not immune, nor was any
member of his devoted little family, who were
in the midst of the upper Baratarla infection.
H«-edlesp of the danger to himself or those ho
loved. Dr. Shanely tendered the use of his gas
olene launch to Dr. Brady and the State Board
of Health, and, when Dr. Brady made the trip,
a few weeks since, that disclosed a veritable
nest of infection among the fishing camps in
lower Barataria and the lakes Dr. Shanely was
at his Fide, giving assistance in looking after
the afflicted, screening sickrooms, administering
medicines and handling Ihe fever patients In
any manner necessary. He is now critically ill
with fever, and his death is expected at any
moment.

a meeting in the evening. Half the audience was
made up of young women. The strike leader 19
Samuel Cohen, but the women will elect a woman
leader to assist him to-da.y.
Resolutions were then passed to remain out until
the demands are granted. About five hundred are
involved in the strike.

MRS. M'CADDON DEAD IN LONDON.
Was Wife of Manager and Principal Owner
cf Stranded Circus.
Word was received in this city yesterday of the
death, in London, of Mrs. Joseph T. McCaddon,
wife of the circus proprietor, from heart disease.
Mrs. McCaddon accompanied her husband abroad
on the ill-fated circus invasion of Franc*. She
leaves three children. Mrs. McCaddon was well
known in Philadelphia. Her sister-in-law, Mrs.
Dr. Harper, lives at No. 324 St. Nicholas-aye..
this city.
MoOaddon's cirrus left New-York several month 3
ago for a tour of Europe. The troupe was a large
one, and it was said the circus waa backed for
(130,000. Aftrr a brief engagement in several cities
of France the, circus stranded In Grenoble, and
for the last two months the performers have been
coming to New-York in instalments in the steerage
ond class steamers, or working their way
