etching, with a style peculiarly his own,

his p'.ace. AA'altner taught him much of
his art?though he was a pupil also of

AA'altner's. Ono refers him rather to Al

and, in his work, reproduced. He has in-r
terpreted many English masters. and al
ways sympathotieally. Among his works
may be mentioned Mr. Frank Dicksee's
'A'ows,' three s>mall p'ates after Fred.

and the I.ady Fsgjry Primrose, one of the
most engnging of Milla's' child portraits."
Thc Russian artists in Paris have just
celebratod the hundredth anniversary of
thc painter Orulloft's birt'hday, following
the lead of their St. Petersburg brethren.
Brulloff was, perhaps, the finest painter
of the grnnd school that Russia has pro
uuced. It was his pieture of the same
subject that sowed the seed of "The Last
Days of Pompeii" in Bulwer Lytton's
brain. That painting was first exhibited
in Rome, where it was rapturously ad?
mired. Brulloff became tho fashion there
and in the other Italian citles.: He took
it to Paris in 1S33, but, as a Russian, was
coldly reeeived. <Xicholas I. afterward
employed him to palnt those sacred im
agea that adorn the interlor of St. Isaac's

THE AVORLD'S MERCY. By Maxwell
'Gray, author of "Tlie Silence of Dean
Maitland." etcl, etc New York. D.;Ap
pleton & Co. Bound in paper; 2S7 pages.
Price 50 cents. ' '?:'?
The Iatest issue of Appleton's Town and
Country Library series is a. collection of
stories by Maxwell Gray, the initial story,
"The World's Mercy," giving its name to
the volume. Maxwell Gray needs noln
troduetion to the reading. public. This
volume contains . five short stories, the
iirst being the longest and most preten
tious. "The World's Merfcy" would be
more truly named "the AA'orld's Lack of
Mercy." It is told in strong. virile fash
ion, and is a tale of sin, sorrow and re
pentance. "Sweet Revenge" is a brlght,
witty sketch, and "The AVidow's Clock"
is a pathetic Iittle story of rural life anu
love. "An Old Song" and *'A Summer
Night" complete- the collection.
THE- FINAL GOAL. By Bessie Dill, au?
thor or "The Story of Bell." Lippin
eoitt's 'Select Novels. H'hiladelphia, J.
B. Lippincott. Paper, 50 cents.
It is refreshing to read a. novel which
'ends happily. "They were married and
Hvcd happy ever after" was always the
favorite ending of the much-loved fairy
tales of childhood. AVhile in this matter
of-fact day and generation such an ending
may seem juvcnlle, yet even in this age
of matsrialism there are those who be
liove thfc "world well lost for love." In
"The Final Goal" Bessie Dill <L. Beith
Dalziel) has writtcn a fascinating love
story, which c-nds happily for all con
cerned. There is nothing especially novel
in the plot, in fact there is not much plot
in the story. The book has its shadows
in a man's inhumanity to a trusting wo
man, his tardy act of justice and of sep
aration so far as lay in his power, but
the record of the love affairs of the
younger generation is a pleasing story.
The scene is niostly laid in Scotland and
the author's exquisite descriptions of the
natural beauties of the country remind
one of the gorgeous word-painting of the
lamented William Black.
