Thoucht transference has IU limitations: It
has not ret wt Into the Government. On
jeveral oecsslons Mr. Pattersontr as waited up
by people at a distance who merely thought of
waklott him. Onoe he slept In a room In which
the bed olothln had been waheUn a Chlnoso
laundry, and his dreams were full of patjodas
and flreornekera. Afterward, when the bed
elothln was washed by tho regular Irish
laundress, he had nonelof this trouble. He mar
have had a sllcht brogue. Bleeping In a room
that had onoo been ocoupled by a person af
flicted with consumption, ho had all the symp
toms ot that erlovoua malady. Ho eurod him
self br the nlmple oxpedlent ot chancing his
room. It is not nocessarlly fatal to have con
nimptlonofthemlnd. No accurate Idea oi that fearfully and won
derfully made mlorocosm callod Boston can bo
formed without some knowledge of tho man
who for forty ysara ruled Its musical life with
an absolute authority suoh as no Tope or Km
peror could boast, and before whose wool tho
Handel and Hardn Bnclety and the Harvard
Musical1 Association quailed and submitted. In
"John 8ulllvau Dwlght. Brook-Farmer. Editor
and Crltlo of Muslo; a Biography" (8mall. May
nard A Co.). Mr.aeorgo Wlllla Cooke shods much
light Bostonlans. perchance, may deem It too
much light-on tho Inmost Brahmanlcnl circle
of "cold roast Boston." Tho Boston to whloh
Dwlghtandhls Journal of Afusfo dictated Its
musical taste was not. of course, the modorn,
overgrown city, with ItaDomoerntlo majorities.
Its subways and union stations, Its newly ac
quired wealth and Its hopeless social confusion
of West End and South l'.nd. on tho mado lands
of tho Back Bay. It was that Inner citadel of
culturo and refinement, whore every one knew
overy ono olse, whero overy man. and mnny a
woman, was an authority on something or
othor. or at least was a brother or aunt or
frlond of somo one who was. Though tho
oltndel has been broken Into and tho garrison
dispersed, the recollection of It. which every
truo Boston I an bears like a Palladium In his
heart, onables him, or her. still to give the cold
shoulder pitilessly to barbarians from tho loss
favored, Inforlor outer world.
It is with this Boston of the davs before the
war, with Its Cambridgo and Concord connec
tions, that Mr.ICooko's book deals, and Its pages
am flllod with reminiscences of menot national
fame, as well as of the " brothers of tho poet,' '
and "friends nt the philosopher," hardly Icbs
well known on the arduous steeps of Beacon
Hill. Tho names ot the persons present, and
tho order In which they sat at tho dinners ot
tho Saturday Club, of which Mr. Dwlght was a
member, aro recordod. though tho material
bills of fare are discreetly passed over In sllcnco.
Mr. Dwlght. In early life, jolnod tho Brook
Farm community; to his llfo thoro his biog
rapher devotes many pasos. tho pleasnntest
part of his Interesting book. Brook Farm Is
coming to be a sort of "Golden Book "for Now
England, supplementary to tho Mayflowor list.
So many men of brains took part In that ex
periment nnd subsequently bocame famous
that no self-respecting Boston family ot intel
lectual aspirations can well dlsponso with
pointing to some relative, if only by marriage,
who in one way or another was connected with
the movement. Mr. Dwlght. however, was an
actlvo participant in It from beginning to end.
His life was worth writing tor its own sake as
wtll as for the account of the friends he had.
Mr. Cooke ls enthusiastic, but he Is Impartial
enough to point out Dwight's limitations in the
task to which his llfo was devoted. "Could
Dwlght have received a thorough muslcnl train
ing, could he havo had the wealth which would
have enabled him to visit the musio centres ot
Europe freely nnd to devote himself without a
question of Income to writing what he folt and
believed about music, he would have given us ns
Important and permanent work as any that has
ever appeared In the way ot musical interpre
tation." His biography, however. In that case
would not have been the delightful quintessence
ot Boston that it Is.
Storlo of the struggles of human intelligence
In acquiring step by stop tho facts that con
stitute modern science, oven when told un
skilfully, are often as exciting and fascinating
as tales ot physical contest or political battle.
In " A Short History of Astronomy " (Charles
bcrlbner's Sons). Mr. Arthur Borry of Cam
bridgo University tells In clear and untochnlc.il
language tho story of a science, always attrac
tive, even when hclged In by painful mathe
matics. His book can be lead Intelligently
with no knowledge of mathomatlcs whatever,
and yet much rlensnnt Information about astro
nomical matters may be derived from It. Mr.
Berry attacks accepted usage In ono case by
Wing tho srelling "Coppernlcus" and giving
reasons for so doing. The division of the book
Into sections seems to Imply that It may bo
used ns a classroom text book. In that case
Mi. Berry's statement. " I have also Inserted a
largo number of dates, as thoy occupy very lit
tlo spaco and may bo found useful by nomo
readers, whllo thoy can bo ignored with great
ease by others." reads like needlessly cruel
A third edition of a "Historical Geography
of the Clans of Scotland" has been published
by Vi. &, A. K. Johnston of Edinburgh. The
bodyof the work Is by the late T. B. Johnston
and tho late Col. J. A. Robertson, who studied
tho history of tho Highlands diligently and
with good results. Their work appears In an
excellent map. showing tho locations and
boundaries of tho clans, and In tho rolls ot the
clans, notes to the various acts against them,
the badges and the war cries of the clans. Mr.
William Kirk Dickson supplies to this edition
an account of the Highland campaigns, with
plans of the great battles of I'restonpans. Fal
kirk and Cullodcn and portraits of thechlot
actors In the drama. There must bo many
Highlanders In this country to whom tho book
will be of great Interest.
"Gospel of tho Stars or Wonders of Astrol
ogy," by Gabriel (James Hlngston, A. B.. Ox

troduced by tho Bev. George H. Hepworth. D.
D and by a picture on tho covor of a half-clad
young woman, mysteriously tangled up with
the sun, tho stars nnd tho zodiac, nnd dangling
her ravon locks Into snaco. Tho statements of
fact nnd tho diction of tho book can be fitly
compared with Dr. Hepworth's own produc
tions. In "Tlireo Studies In Llteraturo" (Maemll
lans). Prof. Lewis E. Gates of Harvard Univer
sity has collected Into a volume essays on
Francis Joffrey. Cardinal Newman and Mnt
tliew Arnold, which had already served an
othor purpose. They are careful, scholarly and
thoroughly orthodox productions, which will
bo of assistance to people who like to have
tholr literary opinions formed for them.
That thoro was a demand anywhore for a
new English translation of Balntlue's "I'lccl
ola" would hardly have occurred to anyone.
Boston, however, apparently called for ono.
nnd Miss Abby I. Alger In 'Tlcclola, by
Josoph Xnvler Boniface "(Olnn A Co.), has an
swered the call. Neither In tho translation
nor tho English Is thfio noticeable Improve
ment on tho older versions, while the jumble
of French and Italian forms In proper names
and tho slipshod rendering of expletives Is an
noying. Tho notes are both Inadcqunto and
It has nlways boon characterlstlo of tho

Algeria and Tunis." by M. Gaston BoUsler ot
the French Academy, professor of Latin litera

bella Ward a. P. Putnam's Sons), gives an
entertaining account of the territory of
Carthage after it came Into Boman hands, ns
vfell as of tho latost discoveries made by the
French In their Mediterranean colonies.
In England It has been found convenient to
devise a name for the distinctive dialect em
ployed In the newspaper of which Sir Edwin
Arnold Is editor. Voltaire's saying "that
speech has been given to man to disguise his
thoughts" has there been developed to a max
imum of verbiage joined to a minimum of
fact, generally known as "telegraphese," It Is
in "telegrapheso" that Major Arthur Grif
fiths has written "Mysteries of Police
and Crimes a General Survey of Wrong
doing and IU Pursuit." 2 volumes.
(0. P. Putnam's Bona.) Crimes of ait times
and countries aro jumbled together with
little sense of their Importance, whether from
tho psychological or the doteetlve standpoint,
nnd with llttlo attempt at rational classifica
tion, whllo ot no crime Is a clear or deflnlto de
scription given. Major Griffiths holds the po
sition of Government Inspector of Prisons, so
that ho has had to deal personally with some
celebrated criminals. Nothing In his book, how
ever, distinguishes his first-hand knowledge
from that tor which he Is Indebted to foreign
books. What might In compotent hands have
proved a serviceable and entertaining work Is
spoiled by shiftless treatment.
" What Is This ?" Is the question asked In the
title ot his book by an author who hldos under
tho anagrams Bencclof Ermnglne Mervan (no

suoms to be: tho pi no dream of n person trying

The author begins by defining the individual
