Here in my dear Derndorf home I write te
you. The pabtorandFrauPasteritiWuttig
have iust returned from a deliirhtful walk
te the Derubury. We have crossed the
bridge ever the Laalc aud walked by the
mill of which Goethe speaks se graphically
in one of his letters written from the
Domburg. Se beautiful is the evening and
se distinctly could we see the Kunitzburg,
which lies lies between Derndprf and Jiua.
On the summit are the ruins of the old
castle. Seme ten years age a peasant by
night went thither with a wagon and
horse. Unknown te any one he removed a
portion of the ruin, and with the stones
built a house near the feet of the moun
tain. Seme time afterward his theft be
came known, when the government of
Weimar ordered him te demolish the
house which he had thus built with the
stolen material. These-same he was com
pelled te take again te the top of the
mountain, and theie lc-eicct the portion
of the tuin as it had been at a cost of
four hundred dollars. This then is the
ruin which you must imagine you have
seen with me as I walk along the Laale
with my friend the pastor and Frau Pasto Paste
rin Wuttig. Over our heads rises the
Domburg with its three castles, whilst
flowing in the most graceful curves at its
base is the picturesque Laale. The strata
of the rocks in this old outpost of Tlntnu
gian dominion in Sclaveic times, is very
interesting geologically, as it shows the
different strata of rocks se distinctly. The
village of Derndorf lies opposite te us and
I see the window of my loom as we walk.
Frem the window of the Goethe Schloss?
the Great Dichter leeks down upon you as
we walk together, and we give him
American crcctins:. I trust you have
jeyed the sheit walk.
iGECRGE Merle Zvciiav.ias.
It is unquestionable that the fame of
Hawthorne has steadily grown during the
fifteen years since his death. Mr. Henry
James, jr., finely says that " he has the
importance of being the most beautiful
aud most eminent representative of a lit
erature," and, again, that he is " the most
valuable example of the American genius,"
and, still agaiu, that he " was, en his lim
ited scale, a master of expression." He
says nothing in his fresh and, en the
whole, fascinating biography of him a
biography which, if meagre in its facts, is
notably rich in the quality and justice of
its semi-literary criticism which is truer
than this : " Three or four beautiful tal
ents of transatlantic growth are the sum
of what the world usually recognizes, and
in this modest nosegay the genius of Haw
thorne is admitted te have the rarest and
sweetest fragrance." Mr. James writes
from the English point of view, but his
praise never exceeds that of Mr. Hutten,
the well known English critic, who says
that " as a literary artist, if net in rough
genius, he may safely be considered al
most the first, and quite the highest, fruit
of American culture." Mr. "V hippie has
also clearly traced the thread of Haw
thorne's work, "in intellect and imagina
tion, in the faculty of discerning spirits
and detecting laws," he says, ' we doubt
if any living novelist is his equal ;" his
style is "the sweetest, simplest aud
clearest English that ever has been made
the vehicle of equal depth, variety and
subtlety of thought or emotion," and " his
mind is reflected in his style as a face is
reflected in a mirror." Again, Mr. Whip
ple penetrates te the secret of Hawthorne's
power when he says that " with his in
sight of individual souls he combines a
a far deeper insight of the spiritual laws
which govern the strangest aberrations of
individual souls." There is nothing new
or recent in these statements, but they
record the imprcsssen which Hawthorne's
writings have made upon some of the
keenest minds of our own time, aud every
indication points te a larger recognition of
the ability of the author of " The Scarlet
Letter" in the near future. Even this
romance, the first te give him fame,
has just been illustrated by Mr.
Darlcy, a man whose genius works in
art iu much the same channels as
Hawthorne's worked iu literature. It
takes a little space of time te see an author
sufficiently at a distance te measure his
relative size, and we are hardly yet enough
separated from our gi eat romancer te see
the relative place he occupies in literature.
He had the Shakspcarian element. Never
exhausting himself in any one direction,
always moving in the realm of the imagin
ation, a poet in his sympathies, in the cre
ation of characters, in the distillation of
the subtlest essence of life into his work,
his imagination always obeyed the
inward law of his mind, and seemed te
fathom the secret depths of life. His re
sources were immense. He absorbed
everything; he saw everything; he saw
what the company he mingled in did net
sec ; he saw with the creative eye of the
imagination. It has been remarked that he
had mere of Shakspeare iu his tempeia
ment and habits than any man knewu te
fame in America. He was certainly Shak
spearian in his choice of companions. He
shunned the snobs of the literary circles
with instinctivedisgust,but,inthe company
of a man like the late Win. D. Ticknor, or
of men like the old-fashioned Salem ship
masters,of the quaint specimens of humani
ty that are still found in New England by
ways, he was vastly at his ease, and never
failed te de his part, whether it was drink
ing wine or telling stories. When this ele
ment is found in literary men of power, it
is the sure mark of genius, and these good geed
fellowships are the avenues through which
genius touches the large humanity of man
kind. Hawthorne has net yet been ade
quately exhibited in his environment, in
his methods of work, in the movements of
his genius. Mr. Lathrop picked up essen
tial facts, but failed te interpret the crea
tive side of Hawthorne's life, and no one
who has attempted te interpret him te men
has yet shown the insights which Mr. Hut Hut
ten and Mr. Whipple have used in giving
us the real portraiture of the mental activ
ity of this great master of fiction. Mr.
James has done his work well, but he is a
man cast in another mould, and the true
life of Ilawthenie has still te be written.
While every one can trace the marks et
genius in Hawthorne's writings, but little
attention has been given te the superb con
ditions en which he worked. Mr. James
sees what his environment did for him, but
fails te interpret his genius by it. Haw
therne is mere distinctly a New England
author than any ether writer. Sylvester
Judd's realistic fiction entitled ' ' Margaret "
was an attempt te write the great New
England story, and he came as near te it
as any man can who mistakes quaintness
and individuality for genius. Hawthorne
from the first had the conception of what
New England could furnish him. It gave
him what the Elizabethan age gave Shakci
speare the power that lies in demonology
As a boy he amused himself with the "Pil
grim's Progress " and the " Faery Queen,"
and these works net inaptly represent
the two elements which run through
all his works the Puritan and the
poetical elements. Ne writer among
us has given such e. traits of New
England life; no one has caught, in the
same uegree, tlie suetier impressions et
that life which are only gathered by the
imaginative faculty in its creative moods.
Longfellow and Whittier are merely surface-painters
as compared with Hawthorne.
It is the environment of this quaint,
rigid, austere, yet vividly human life of
our ancestors that you find in Haw
thorne's "Twice-Told Tales," in "The
Sacred Letter," in " The Heuse of the
Seven Gables," in the "Blithedale Ko Ke
mance," and even in "The Marble Faun"
you trace the same weird and mysterious
power of haunted life. It is net only the
Puritan atmosphere, but it is the infer
nal side of Puritan life, its dealing
with devils, its questionings of the
soul, its witchcraft element, what haunts
the residents of Salem te this day, that
you trace in the turn it gave te his imasi imasi
natieu. Hawthorne also grew up by him
self. The boy who could "skate until
midnight, all alone, upon Sebago lake,
with the deep shadows of the icy hills en
cither side," had in him the elements for
for the making of no common man. Then
the isolation of the literary class in New
England in his early manhood, the fact
that nobody believed that an American
could write a book worth reading, the
same forgetfulness of merit which caused
the late Richard II. Dana te cease te be an
author half a century before he died, had
much te de in shaping the development of
Hawthorne's mind. He called himself
"the obscurest man of letters in America,"
and wrote less te earn his bread than te
satisfy the instincts of his imagination.
Bad as this was personally for Hawthorne,
yet with a man of his power and tendency,
if we were net totally discouraged, it was
sure te make him concentrate his strength
upon work that would give him reputation
and the effect was seen when iu his forty
sixth year. "The Scarlet Letter" made
him famous throughout the realm of Eng
lish letters. The quantity of his work is
net large, though quite large enough, but
its quality is precisely what a strong man,
with his mind turned inward, and his .sur
roundings such as gave one as much time
for breeding imaginations as Woidswerth
had, would be most apt te furnish. The
sad, pathetic melancholy of the man, the
inability te see things with tlie " upper
eye" of spiritual joy, the power te touch
the springs of life without touching Ged,
had limited the fame of Hawthorne,
and confined a man of Shaksperian
power te the limits of one species of
writing ; but no one can read his shorter or
longer stories, or even his various essay.0,
without feeling that in the realms of the
creative imagination no one in America
but the elder Dana has come into compari
son with him. Peculiar as he was in h;s
personal life, as able te de without human
society as he was te enjoy it. net entering '
any sphere of life se much that he could
net appreciate any ether, he was yet true
te the instinct of self, throughout his en
tire career. Wc have had no ether writer
who has taken into himself se much of the
New England of two centuries age, or who
has bodied it forth in shapes of the imagina
tion se distinct and startling that he has
peopled English literature anew with the
airy nothings of his own brain.
Au Acre iu Onions.
Few farmers seem te realize the fact
that as much money may be obtained from
au actc of land in onions as from a forty
acre farm devoted te the usual crop. At
present prime onions are worth $4 per
barrel by the car-lead, and two hundred
and fifty barrels may be", and net un
frequently are produced from an acre of
land. Let no one, however, expect te
realize a thousand dollars from an acre of
onions who docs net pay the best atten
tion te the crop. Te begin with, land
naturally adapted te producing the crop
should be selected. Experiments made
in the eastern states, where large quanti
ties of onions arc raised for the southern
market, show that there is no better soil
for onions than that of a reclaimed beg.
Of course the land must be well drained
aud the surface soil decomposed by ex
posure te the action of the atmosphere.
Most of our black prairie soils arc suita
ble te the production of onions if they aie
rightly treated. The turf must become
entirely retted and mixed with the earth
below. Land that has been in pasture
for several yeare is easily prepared for a
crop of onions, as the turf is comparative
ly thin, while the soil is quite free from
weeds. That portion of a pasture in which
cattle and sheep lie at night may be con
verted into an onion-patch te excellent ad
vantage. A field for onions should be very nearly
level. If there are elevations in it the soil
en them will be likely te wash away, car
rying off the seed before it germinates, or
leaving part of the onions exposed te the
sun. A piece of land intended for onions
should be entirely free from the seeds of
weeds in the start, and there should be a
determination en the part of the grower
te allow none te attain any considerable
size. Absolutely clever culture is
essential te producing a paying crop
of onions. Neglect in this matter will
cause a vast amount of work, which
will net, after all, insure a geed crop of
onions. A field of onions can net be ne
glected en account of a demand for labor
en ether parts of the farm. Unless a far
mer has help that can attend te his field
of onions during the season of plowing
corn, cutting grass, and harvesting grains,
it will be better net te attempt te raise
the crop at all. The care of onions, how
ever calls for light work, which may be
chiefly performed by old men, partial in
valids, women and children. Persons who
cannot perform heavy work en the farm
may engage in onion raising te excellent
It is useless te undertake te raise a pay
ing crop of onions en land that is net very
highly manured. Frem thirty te fifty
leads of manure should be applied te an
acre of land designed for producing this
c:ep. It should be well retted and free
from the seed of grass and Jweeds. Un
leached ashes form a valuable addition te
composted stable manure. After a piece
of land has been prepared for onions it is
best te continue the crop for a series of
years. As onions are gross feeders it will,
of course, be necessary te apply a coating
of manure every season. The soil of an
onion field should be well pulverised and
the manure thoroughly incorporated with
it. After it is plowed and harrowed a
roller should be employed for crushing the
Many growers empljy a hand-rake for
fining the soil before the seed is sewn.
About four pounds of seed are required
for an acre. It should be the product of
the previous season. The seed may be
tested by counting out a certain number
and placing them ou some moist cotton
laid in a saucer. If geed, it will germi
nate in three or four days. Tlie seed
should be sewn as early in the spring
as it is possible te prepare the land.
Growers who aim te get the largest yield
from a given amount of land allow only
the space of a feet between the rows.
There is a drill which plants two rows of
onion seed at once. If sewn by hand one
seed should be dropped every inch. In
order te mark the rows it is well te drop
a radish seed every five or six inches. The
radishes will grew very rapidly, and will
be large enough te pull before the onions
attain sufficient size te be injured by their
presence. If there is no market for rad
ishes in the vicihity, cabbage plants may
be raised iu their place. When of suffi
cient size they may be pulled and trans
planted. The cultivation of onions must be chiefly
performed by means of hand tools. The
shuffle hoe is the best implement for doing
most of the weik. It should be of the
best quality, and great pains should be
taken te keep it clean and sharp. After
the plants are about four inches high they
may be thinned se that each has a space of
about three inches in which te grew.
Seme growers who seek te raise very large
crops allow three onions te grew in the
space of six inches. Of course they crowd
each ether after they have become cf
nearly full size, but this thick setting is
neccssaiy te secure the maximum yield.
Alter they aic thinned te the proper dis
tance nothing is required by way of culti
vation except te keep the soil light and
fiee from weeds. Chicago Times.
