BLACKLEGS.
THE GOOD GIRL. By Vincent O Sulll?
van. 12mo. pp. 313. E. P. Dutton *
Co.
Thls is an able piece of uncompro
mising realism, compelllng, notwlth
atanding the repellent nature of all its
characters but one. that of the "Good
Girl" herself, the daughter of an Eng?
lish blackleg, a cashlered offlcer, pro
fessional gambler, promoter and swlnd
ler, notorious on the Continent as ln
England ltself. With the aid of his
enlgmatlc, beautiful second wlfe, who
eucceeds ln hanglng on to the frlnge of
Boclety by means of her wonderful
volce, always at the service of charlty,
thls blackguard eucceeds in gettlng In
hls power a man of property and stand
ing, the far from unwllllng slave of the
woman, lf not of the man. One of the
many technlcal merlts of the book Ues
ln the able way In whlch the reader Is
kept ln the same atate of uncertalnty
as the vlctim hlmself concernlng the
real self of this Delilah, her pa.t an-1
the Inwardness of her relatlons and
understanding wlth her husband.
There are serret* ln that past; there
nre secrets ln the present. Rich inen
flock around her?accompllce or decoy,
or player of her own hand, who can
tell? Her stepdaughter oceaslonaKy
betraya passages from the past, whlch
however, compromlse her father more
than the woman. The situation that
ultlmately ls establlshed between theae
two and the man of property, to the
excluslon of the blackleg hlmself, la an
unpalatable one, but the author'? abil
ity retains the reader's interest. The
tragedy of the Good Girl ls appeallng
'midst all this aordldneas?ln short, Mr.
O'Sullivan ls a realist of power. Mr.

M. de Tinseau contrasts ln thia atorv
the physlcian's and the layman's vlew
of euthanasla, as the layman mis
understands the word. In the case at
issue the dlfference is also that be?
tween the devout bellever's and the
materialist's attltude toward Ilfe and
death. In the end lt becomes a strug

the m-?mory of tho man kllled out of
pity for hls agonles rlslng from Its
grave to create a strange compllca

hls choice of scene as ln hls inventlon
of the plot. The Foreign Legion na*
been so much to the fore of late in
the press, and even ln lnternational
politics, that a tale of the leglonarie*
cannot fall to appeal to the reader's
curioslty. It ls a Swiss sergeant of

ROUSSEAU
The Theory of His Murder Test
ed at His Tomb.
Paris, October 4.
M. Brnile Faguet celebrates the two
hundredth annlversary of Rousseau by
publlshlng three volumes about the au?
thor of the "Contrat Roclal," hls lntl?
mate friends and personal enemlefl.
They are certalnly more agreeable to
read and far more Instructlve thnn
anything ro far produced. These vol?
umes are entltled "Vie de Roussenu,"
"Les Amles de Rousaeau" and "Rous
seau contre Moliere." In the flrat one
flndfl a conclse picture of RouBseau;
the second contalne dellgntful sketches
of those brilllant, wltty and bewltch
ing ladles, Mmes. de Warens, Verdelln,
d'Eplnay, Crequl, Boufllers nnd De
Luxembonrg, whlch, ln thelr way, ara
little masterpleces. In the third vol?
ume the true reaBons of RouBseau'a
vlolent onslaught upon the "Mlsan
thrope" are set forth, and as an offset
to this there is an admirable critlcism
of Moli re. These books will shortly
be followed by two others. entltled
"Rousseau Penseur" and "Rousseau
Artlste."
It ehould be noted that M. Faguet In
cllneB to belleve in the truth of the new
theory of Dr. RaBpail, that RouBseau
was murdered. Accordlng to Dr. Ras
pail, who recently made a careful ex
amlnatlon of the death maak made by
Houdon, three dlstlnct wounda exlst on
Rousseau'a akull. One of theae la
slight at the corner of the rlght eye;
the second ia a llttle deeper on the left
cheek. near the nostrll; the thlrd. on
the forehead, ls the one that crushed
the akull. and. ln the opinion of Dr.
Raapall, was alone ?ufflcient to cause
death. After minute lnvestlgutlons, ln
wblch the theory of sulcide la exam?
lned. Dr. Raapall comea to tha conclu
slon that the latter hypotheelB la un
tenable, and that Rouaaeau was mur?
dered by Thereae Lavaaseur, who waa
hls mi*tr*__ and afterward his wlfe.
Thia lady was wlth him at Ermenonvllle
when be died. and lt ls efltabliahed tbat
Rouaaeau had for aome tlme suapected
her of a too great fondneaa for one of
the frooma of M. da Girerdln, a gen
ere-e admlrer of the author of "La
TCrvivelie Heloiae.** who gave him the
rustlc cottage at Ermenonvill? where
he llved untll hls death.
It may be Interest Ing to recall that
some fourteen years ago, when at the
lnstance of Senator Hamel the tombs
underneath the Pantheon of Rousseau
and Voltalre were opened to nacertaln
deflnltely whether the remalns of these
two great men were really there or not
the present wrlter witnessed the ex
humatlon, and, together wlth M. Jules
Claretle, of the Freneh Academy, saw
fhe ekulls of Voltalre and of -tousseau.
They were both ln a falrly good atate
of preservatlon, partlcularly the skull
of Rousseau, whlch was solld -nd mas
slve. I held lt ln my hands and ex?
amlned lt, but I certainly did not notlce
any traces of the wounds descrlbed by
Dr. Raspall, although there was a small
place on the top of the forehead where
the skull had fallen or dlsappeared,
leavlng a sort of cavlty. C. I. B.

'separates'?hateful term?wlth other
speciallsts, but few among us are on
speaking terms with the cultured gen?
eral public curlous to know what sci
ence ls achieving." The professor went
on to declare that the translatlon Into
common English of scientlfic workB waa
done, like that of foreign classics, too
much by hacks and amateurs and too
llttle by skilled hands. He thought
there was a fundamental error In the
English mode of training men of bcI
ence:
If our undergraduates were. as we as
sumed they were, well found ln g-eneral
culture, trained already ln scientlfic
method. famillar wlth the lan-ruage of our
fathers. and apt also to read and speak
and write some other tongue, then let
us take them stralghtway and bake them
ln the oven of speclalization. But he, at
all events. had never met those students,
and outslde the ranks of genius he be?
lleved they dld not exlst. He would plead.
then. for more breadth and less special
knowledge, for more llcensed freedom, a
lesser unlformlty. a wlder search for gifts
and a sllghter regard for *peclalist at
tainmenta. It was never too late for a
well trained mlnd to master? a new sub?
ject. but he who neglected the substanee
of educatlon for the shadow of mere
knowledpe robbed hlmself of half th*
pleaaure of hls wor_ _nd of every chanc*
of greatness.

The history of Texas has appealed

Altsheler, who has accumulated a great
store of interesting material belonging
to the subject. This he proposes to us*
in a trilogy, the flrst volume of whlch,
"The Texan Star," wlll shortly appear.
It ls worth noting that many valuable
lrnpresslons of Mexlcans he haa de
