THE IJYllON IlKVIVAL.
How Mr. IIotvellH .Sums Up on tho
Author oT Don Juun.
In view of tho attempted Byron re
vival the following estimate of the poet
by W. D. Howells Is in order. Mr. How
ells (In Harper's Weekly) says: How
much wrong he did we should not
now like to risk saying; we feel that It
Is not quite for us to say, though for
whom It is to say Is another matter.
It would hardly, at this day, be a ques
tion of how far he had undermined
faith, but how far he had undermined
conduct; and probably his most crying
sin will always be found to be that In
his greatest poem he dealt falsely and
to the enduring harm of all who give
themselves up to his magic. This Is
the greatest of all pities, but no cnndld
man can deny that the question of
Lord Byron Is ultimately the question
of Don Juan, or that the thought of
this Is what first comes Into the mind
at mention of the poet's name. He Is
condemned to eternal association will)
a work whose beauties are seen thiough
tho shimmer of Its putrescence, and
whoso Infamy no poet of a later tlmo
would accept for the sake of his fame.
Byron Is no longer a god, Byron Is no
longer n. devils but he was undoubt
edly guilty of sin against the light
which was In him.
His sin was largely a part of his pose,
which was so largely a part of himself;
and It must not be taken too seriously
In making up a Judgment of his char
actor. He has been very much mis
judged because he has been tnken too
seriously for good ns well as for evil.
Because ho was turbulent nnd icbel
llous, It was Imagined that he was lib
eral; becase he was splendid and pro
fuse, It was believed that he was gen
erous; and ho was always suffering
from these misconceptions, both In his
friends and In his foes. The truth Is
that Byron Vas always an arlstocrnt
with very feudal principles nnd In
stincts; and though he gave his money,
nnd, at last, his life, to the cause of
Greek liberty he died as distinctly for
Byron as for Greece. There was a per
sistent boyishness In his nature, and
with all his greatness he had few hours
of maturity. His birth, his place, his
experience bred in him a beautiful
egotism which he never could put from
him In his relations with others. He
was not a Judge of men or books, and
his rash and coarse estlmnte of Keats
was of the same quality as his esti
mate of Hunt. The texture of his strer.
uous mind was loose and rough; his
work, except In rare and fortunate mo
ments, had defects such as mark thut
of no other eminent poet; In his mest
magnificent passages he had touches of
astonishing cheapness; he wore stage
Jewels over his cloth of gold. But he
had bursts of true feeling amidst his
tawdriest declamation, nnd he gave
proofs of real thinking In conditions
which were alien even to any appear
ance of thinking.
THEY NEVEIt GROW OLD.
Reasons M'hv tho Brain nnd Heart
Don't Succumb to Age.
In his work on the 3enlle heart Dr.
Balfour tells us that theie are two
parts of the human organism which,
If wisely used, "largely escape cenlle
failure." These two are the brain and
the heart. Persons who think have of
ten wondered why brain workers, great
statesmen, and others, should con
tinue to work with almost unimpaired
mental activity and energy up to a
period when most of the organs and
functions of tho body are in a condition
of advanced senile decay. There Is a
Physiological reason for this, and Dr.
Balfour tells us what It is.
The normal brain, lie affirms, "re
mains vigorous to the last," and that
"because its nutrition Is specially pro
vided for." About middle life or a lit
tle later, the general arteries of the
body begin to lose their elasticity and
to slowly but surely dilate. They be
come, therefore, much less efficient car
riers of tho nutrient blood to the cap
illary areas. But this is not the case
with the internal carotids, which sup
ply the capillary areas of the brain.
On the contrary, those large vessels
"continue to retain their pristine elac
ticlty, so that the blood-pressure re
mains normally higher than within the
capillary area of any other organ In
the body. The cerebral blood-paths be
ing thus kept open, the brain tissue Is
keat better nourished than the other
tissues of the body,"
What Is theie among those who have
reached or passed middle age that will
not be rejoiced to find such admirable
physiological warrant for tho belief
that the brain may contlnuo to work,
and oven to Improve, almost to the
very last hour of llfo?

I am pleased to note that Miss Parloa,
the well-known writer and authority en
cooking, Is again to lslt Scranton. Miss
Parloa furnishes an example of what may
bo accomplished by adapting one's self to
circumstances. She began life as a school
teacher, but wns obliged to relinquish the
calling on account of 111 health. She turned
her attention to cooking nnd possessing
natural talent In that lino soon gained
prominence preWously undreamt or.
Being endowed with Intelligence that
enabled her to rut her recipes
In simple and attractive form Mlis
Parloa's cook books became famous
throughout the land. 'Miss Parloa's cook
ing Is of the common senso wholesome
kind, and can be Indulged In with safe
ty by ordinary man. Sho has no hobbles
In the way of "Invalid food" or any other
particular concoction calculated to mako
tho hungry man hesitate, but her recipes,
the result of careful study and experi
ment, Instruct the housewife In the way
of preparing dishes that are not only de
licious but are alio nutritious. Miss Par
loa Is of a most congenial nature, Is of
pleasing personality and evidently thrives
upon her own medicine.
A bill has been Introduced nt Albnny,
which will provide punishment for per
sons who falsely represent themselves ns
representatives of newspapers. The
amendment to the code defining disorderly
persons reads: "Persons who, not being
employed by any newspaper or periodical
publication, represent themselves to be
so employed, nnd by means thereof gain
or acquire any Information to tho ad
vantage of themselves." This step has
been brought about by the private detec
tives In large cities who seek Informa
tion by representing themselves ns repor
ters. Tilackmallcrs also work their favor
lto game by pretending to represent some
newspaper and threatening their victims
with write ups. Tho proposed measure Is
timely and will probably prove beneficial,
and should be duplicated In this state. The
bogus reporter in Scranton is not usually
a dangerous character. His operations
nro usually confined to working the lunch
counters, picnics and managers of free
and easy dances. In this respect, how
ever, he Is a nuisance In bringing honest
newspaper men into dlsieputo, and should
I am sure that the owners of the Froth
Ingham scarcely realize the effect of the
step that they hao taken In changing
the name of tho beautiful tehater to the
"Lyceum." There is nothing more bene
ficial to a theater or a newspaper or a
hotel than individuality nnd a reputation.
There Is no class of advertisers so liberal
ns the traveling show people. If they are
pleased with a theater, a hotel or a news
paper, they do not hesitate to relate the
fact in tho next city and to the profession
everywhere. The Frothlngrham Is one ot
the most convenient and complete theaters
In America as well as one of tho most
beautiful. It is the Joy of the traveling
Thespian of high or low degree and Is
known almost from Maine to California as
a modol Inland house of amusement. It
is ensy to see that tho changing of tho
nnmo of a house so well established and
advertised Is almost equivalent to starting
nnpur. Hundreds of ninnacers about the
country would probably bo willing to pak
hard dollars for what the Frothlngharrl
