was* i'dopi.d into a normal fnmtly, an?!, ae
a result, lived a normal life.
A case throwing a far more searching
light on the subject is that given by a
Dnnlah scientist of forty-four relatod
famllies which in twenty years sent no
less than seventy-seven patients to the
itisan" asylum, while the same group
produced .">.">S serious neuropathic cases,
all of these degenerates being traced to

and artists, most of whom Were known

! hand, there is little doubt that proper
' medical care of the seventy-two Insane
In their childhood, and a proper regula -
?lion of their lives, would have saved
?them from the asylum." Children, Mr.
Smith asserts, are generally far better
born than we have come to believe; It is
the environment in its widest sense that
chiefly makes or mars them. The ap
parant Increase of pathological cases in
?ivilize.l society is largely ?lue. he adds,
to Improvement in the methods of their

already pointed out when Max Nordau

While In England In 1888 Lear over?
heard a gentleman In a railway carriage
explain to two ladles that tho author of
the "Hook of Nonsense'' was Kdwni.l
Karl of Derby, who, not caring to pub?
lish it un?ler his own name, had merely
transposed the letters of his title, and
turned "Edward Karl" into "Edward
Lear," a simple process. Lear, reporting
the incident to I.inly Waldegrave, con?
Says l, joining spontanlOUS In the con?
versation- "That is <?uit. a. mistake; l have
reason to know thai Udward l.ear, the
painter and author, wrote and Illustrated
the whole book." "And I," says the <'?.-',i
thman. says he, "have Rood reason to
know, Sir, thai y??,-1 are wholly mistaken.
There la no such person a* Edward Lear."
"But," says I, "there Is and I am the
man and T wrote ih?? hook!" Whereupon
all the party burst out laughing and evi?
dently thought me mail or telling flhs. So
I took off im hat and showed It all round,
with ?Sdwsrd Loser and the addr?"-s in large
letters?also one of my <*ards. and a marked
hannkerchlef; on which amazement de? ?
voured those benighted Individuals and I
Wt them to gnash their teeth In troubl?
The reading of these two volumes will
double and treble tho pleasure of him
who knows the "Hook of Nonsense"
alone. And it will, furthermore, reveal
j to him a man w ho, delectable as was his
I humor. Irrepressible as was his love of
nonsense, was beautifully serious In 8
i large and manly way about the tin? nnd
I serious things of life.

with'Mit waivlni ulterior problems of
descent, Dr. ?"adman pays attention to
thS engaging faets of Darwin's Immedi?
ate lineage. Charles's father was th.?
leading physician of Shrewsbury. Eras?
mus, the rrandfather, also s physician,
was the well-known ;?uth??r of "7.on

minor attempt to follow the l??a?l of Lu

married Wodgwooda Qne married Sir

another married the historian Slsmondl.
Following th?* progress of Darwin's in?
vestigations, Dr Cadman dwells on the
opposition offered by naturalists as well
?s by theologians t<> a new outlook
which threatened the very ?foundations ?if
faith. Hy them th?- defence of the cos?
mogony sttrlbuted to Moses was felt to
be <?f ?? pises with th?? conserving ??f

POET AND CRITIC
How Swinburne and Churton
Collins Fell Out.
Andrew Lang, in The London Morning
There are moments when n man is in
cllu'd to think that nobody with a sense
oi humor can be a poet, or a really great
man, <?r an Influence for good in his
generation. For women one cannot be
no sure Hud Ssppho, had Mi.-s ROS?
I Mi. a stiise of humor'.' These moments
of doubt fall upon us after reading th??
poems of Milton. Shelley, Wordsworth
and Mr Swinburne, and perhaps the
blogranhy of Mr. Gladstone by my Lord
Of Moiley. But a very brief Interval if
reflection diapeis the burden of our med?
ito t lona. If S.'pph i had no humor.
Jeanne d'Arc bubbled over with it. I re?
member with pleasure passages of hu?
mor in the literary wont? of Mr. Qlsd
etone. Cromwell was full of his fun,
though perhaps Lord Moiley, in his life
of th.? ;rr?at Protector, d(>??s not empha?
sise th t.K-t it remains true thnt the
four gr .n English p???-ts whom i have
named had ho humor of their own, but
Mr. Swinburne had the keenest apprecia?
tion f'f the quality in Dickens and tin?
author of the "Mali Ballads." H>* also
wrote pint.dbs of himself and some con?
temporaries but n? sources of mirth they
are not fl Ultful.
<?n|y a ix-ing destitute of humor could
hav.? missed the magnificent opening af?
forded t?. him hy my friend the late Mr.
?Churton Collins, who himself. \ fc*r,
overlooked his own chance of enjoying
himself. The olrOUmStanCSS were in s
higli ib-gr?1?' i all-ulnted to promote tho
hilarity of ?the learned aiul of the two
authors, If they had possessed any SetlSS
of b joke. Mr. Collins hail reviewed h
book, hv :,ii acquaintance, it. appears,
nnd he had dons It after the manner of
Mscsulsy's criticism of crnk?*r's "Bos
: well's Johnson." ?Mover, it win??, was
there B book -.? Irrodeemabty ?bad, Th??
1 suthor had raid that some hero met an
| otlif-r In S lane and cut him down during
1 the Ci"nt Rebellion. In fact, it ?appears
j Ihe slay? r cSught up his enemy and shut
| hi'ii. My memory may be incorrect, but
this, or something like it, is a sample or
I ih?? errors denounced by Mr ?'olllns.
j Next, people said that we might not to
i pitch ;?? heavily Into books by our ac
i quslntances i would not do such a
thing- in the MaeaulaySSqUS style of iti
Veetlve, lut I might adopt a tone of ur?
bane banter, though our acquaintances
do not li1," that even. However, Mr.
Collins i ?blich explained that he had
attacked the bonk, not the man, there
was nothing bffensivelj personal In his
thunder. He hi d no ?Setter friend then
Mi. Swinburne, snd only a year earlier
he hn?l trounced Mr. Swinburne, as a
critic, in "The Qusrtsrly l.<?\iew." Yet
Mr. Swinburne u is as friendly .ih e\er.
Now, ii seems either that Mr, ?Swin?
burne never read the "Quarterly," which
he hated ami despised from its youth up?
ward, ??r thai the number had been kept
out of his way bj the affectionate craft
ol those Interested In his peace of mind.
