! And around her waist she felt it-fold,
And-far across the hille they went
. In that new world which is the old;
Across the hills and, far away
Beyond their utmost purple rim.
And deep into the dying day
The happy princess follow'd him.
"I'd sleep another hundred years,
O love, for such another kiss;''
"O, wake forever, love,'' she hears;
"O love, 'twas such as this and this,"
And o'er them many a sliding star
.... And.many, a merry wind was borne, ?
And, steam'd thro' many a golden bar,
The twilight melted into morn.
"O eyes long laid in happy sleep!"
"O happy sleep, that lightly fled!"
"O happy kiss, that woke thy sleep!"
"O love, thy kiss would wake the dead!"
And o'er them many a flowing range
Of vapor buoy'd the crescent-bark,
And, rapt thro' many a rosy ehange,
The twilight, ?ljed into the dark.
"A hundred summers! can It be?
And wblther goest thou, tell, me where?"
"O, seek my father's court with me,
For there ar/i greater wonders there."
And o'er the hills, and far away
Beyond their utmost purple rim,
Beyond the night, across the day,

MASS AND CLASS.-By W. J. Ghent.
Pp., 260, The Macmillan Co., New
WAR OF THE CLASSES.?By Jack
London. Pp.. 278. ?1.50 net, The Mac?
tullan Company, New York.
The underlying resemblance of these
two Interesting nnd tlmoly works pprlngs
from tho fact that their authors are both
Socialists, Mr. London nn avowed and
active one. nnd Mr. Ghent at least strong?
ly la sympathy with socialistic alms. Tho
two gentlemen unite in rather derisively
denying the familiar stntement from cer?
tain strata of society that there are no
classes; they demonstrate conclusively
that thoro is not merely a division of
classes, but an active and unmistakable
class conflict; they nre both profoundly
dissatisfied with prevailing social and
economic conditions: nnd they ugree on
the general proposition that the capi?
talist class, by Abusi 11^ its opportunities,
has forfeited its right to continued rule.
Mr. Ghent, whose book shows much
greater unity nnd consecutlveness, has
covered much of the same ground that
Mr. London does; a'nd the general simi?
larity of their argument Is shown fur?
ther by tho fact that they not Infre?
quently, we believe, cite In Illustration
the sanio data or statistics. In their
manner of handling their material, how?
ever, resemblance seems suddenly to end.
Mr. London Is the historian, and Mr.
Ghent, the special pleader. Mr. London
merely records certain facts that have
.struck upon his observation, allowing ua
to perceive the general bent of his own
sympathies, yet leaving us relatively free
to draw our own conclusions; while Mr.
Ghent Is a vigorous and unmistakable
partisan, nnd makes. In effect, a strong
and coherent argument for the aboli?
tion of capitalistic dominance, nnd for
placing Industrial tonfc-ol in the hands of
a co-operative government.
Of these two books, Mr. Ghent'H if
much the more important. His exposi?
tion Is so orderly and so well arranged:
his knowledge of facts so adequate; and
his demonstration so atoly and 'forcibly
written, that his book must be considered
as a really valuable contribution to the
study of tho modern social . organism.
He devotes an opening chapter to an ex?
amination of tho doctrine of the economic
Interpretation of history, ss applied to
conditions of to-day: a couple of chapters
to the classes, their functions and the
struggles between them; and scvoral more
all of them bear convincingly to the
conclusion which he expounds in his clos?
ing chapter, called significantly enough,
"the Failure of the Trading Class." The
sum and substance of this chapter, and
Indeed of the wholo exposition, Is well
expressed in a' sentence on page 241,
where he says: "It (the trading or capi?
talistic class) has now played Its part,
and must In time, by reason of resistless
forces everywhere at work, Bive wa2y
to the rule of another class."
With all of Mr. Ghent's generalizations,
howevor, effectively led up to. the impar?
tial reader will scarcely be Inclined to
agree, as to choose a trivial ' Instance,
when he says in regard to the attitude
of the employer toward his employe (pn?e
2?>) that "Life is but a bagatelle when it
stands In the way of pioilt." The fuel
that he is a confirmed partisan, however,
does not tend to destroy the intercut anil
agreeable readability of his book, and
this latter quality Is enhanced by an ex?
cellent literary style, often illuminated by
a dash of sarcasm.
Thus, on page 191, in discussing tlw
widespread adulterano? of foods, he
says: "So long as gelatin, timothy seed,
and aniline remain at their present low
prices, the supply of red raspberry Jam
Is likely to be equal to all demands."
Mr. London's book is a collection of
scattering but interesting papers on va?
rious economic topics. Writing on tho
tramp, he bids us refrain from the hypo?
crisy of telling the hobo to'go to work,
because we know there is no work for
him to do. In another- chapter he dis?
cusses the change of direction that must
come when capitalistic development will
have reached Its maximum under the
present regime; and decides that the new
direction of society "must bo either to?
ward Industrial oligarchies or socialism."
And in still another he raises this possi?
bly pertinent question: When the -social?
ist form of government, some day to come
shall have dorne away with competition,
what new law of Industrial and racial pro?
gress will arise to replace the present
law of the survival of the fittest?
Both theso books are Instructive, wortlV
while and Intensely the product of true
world to-day; they sing a strange, new
song, but yesterday unknown, and to?
day, - no doubt, striking oddly and omln-?
ously In certain hitherto strlotly pro?
tected capitalistic ears. Both could
scarcely fall to Interest and Instruct any?
man who takes an Intelligent Interest In'
the social conditions In which Ms own
career is cast. :
THE RELIGION OF DUTY. By Felix
Adler. Pp. 201. ?.20 net. McClure,
Phillips and Company, New York;
In this little volume have been collect?
ed a number of the Sunday talks of the
well-known President of tho Ethical Cul?
ture Society of New York, selected with
the idea of formulating Professor Ad
ler's personal religion. Though some of
the matter here Included has appeared
In print, tho larger part Is token from
stenographic reports of his speeches; and
It should perhaps he added that the book
has been prepared for tho press by an?
other without tho author's personal;,
supervision. Professor Adlers ' views,
aro so generally known . that It'
seems needless to stato that the religious
teachings here nr? altogether uninfluenced
by ordinary ecclesiastical precepts. Re-?
llgion he defines broadly as "that which
beings man into touch with the Infinite,"
and the particular religion which he Indi?
vidually exploits is made sufficiently plain
by the title of this book. To the tri-,
bunol of duty ho asks us to refer all
moral questions. To the spirit of duty
he looks as a means of reviewing dead
love? between husband and wife, ? as a?
preventive of suicide, as tho prime ln-!
Quenco In realizing the Christian ideal of1
tho universal brotherhood of man.
Much of this volume we hnve found
profoundly interesting. On "First Steps
TxiwnrdB a Religion" nnd "Changes in
tho Conception of God," particularly he
has much to say which, while shocking
to the strait-laced churchman, Is yet un?
deniably representative of an attitude to?
ward tho scriptures now very common,
The later chapters, however, are quite
disappointing. In discussing "Tho Ethl
eall Attltudo Toward Pleasure," for ox
The moralist's conclusion that obedl?'
eneo to Christ's mandate to sell all and
give to tho poor would be liko a oon
oral's throwing up his command In the
midst of a battle, and that "we should
not act the part of deserters In giving
up our present social placoa," would
seem to be a proposition whose concep?
tion wns not free from tho Influences
of class promptings. That a man who
strips himself of his coat for tho beggar

THE NATIONAL ADMINISTRATION"
OP THE UNITED STATES. By John

Macmillan Company. New. York.
An excellent reference or text-book on
a department o? American government
rather neglected by nonstltutlonal writer?
Is Professor Fnlrlle'e concise account of
our "National Administration." The au?
thor justly charcos ,that books dealing
with our government hnve for the most
part devoted themselves to the Consti?
tution and Its judicial Interpretation, with
particular reference to tho functions of
Congress, or to' methods of legislativ?
procedure, politics and party machinery.
In the meanwhile, as he say's, "the ad?
ministrative organization and activities
of the government havo still been hardly
mentioned In most works of a general
The need for ? thorough and reliable
work In this field has been apparent;
and Professor Fnlrlle'e book will unques?
tionably go' far tr/ward filling this need.?
His volume, while' 'tiir from being''?ft-j
duly distended, la thoroughly compre-i
henslver Successive chapter? consider the'
special and general administrative powers
of the ' President, the Senate nnd Con?
gress, the Cabinet and Its membors, ad?
ministrativo Organization, nnd an the va?
rious departments and bureaus of tho
central government in their various capa?
cities. Tho author has confined himself
to a plain statement of facts, of which
thero were enough, In all conscience, to
be adduced; and the readability- of hin
book Inevitably suffers from the very
condensation which Increases Its value'
In other ^directions. It Is a volume, In
short, not to be read, but to be studied,
and, we suspect, a very helpful one to
have close at hand' for ready reference. ?
THIRTEEN CHAPTERS OF AMERICAN
HISTORY (The Edward Moran? Serlo?
of Paintings).?Text by Theodore Suro.
Pp.,-113. I1.S0 net. Baker and Taylor
Company, New York. ? ? . ,
The exhibition of Hie Iatc Edward,
Moran'e well-known iserles of marine !
?aintlngs on historical 'subjects, In New
'ork olty last autumn, was described-by
the New York Herald as "not only an
artistic, but an educational, event." Mo
ran was probably, -at the time of his
death, the greatest marine palntrfr In tho
United States; and this series, in addition
to the Individual power of the separate
paintings, has an added value In that It
portrays, In more or less closely con?
nected sequence, ? number of character?
istic and familiar scenes In American
history. The first In the series represents
the Ocean, the Highway of All Nations;
the second, The Landing of Lief Erlck-'
eon (1001); the third. The Santn Marin,
Nina and Pinta; nnd so on down to tho '
thirteenth, a stirring picture called '.'The
Return of the Conquerors?Typifying Our
Victory In the Lato Spanish-American
The series, separately or as a whole, Is
a splendid ? achievement, and It requires
no particularly gifted eye to realize Its
artistic merit .and historical value. Tho
paintings are protected by copyright, nnd
have never before been reproduced; and
the photographing and half-tone work
necessary to their ? eproduction here Is
nil that could be dcBlred.
Mr. Theodore Sutro has supplied tho
descriptive text, explaining tho historical
episodes Illuminated by the painter's
brush, as well as a brief historical sketch'
of Mr. Moran; but the paintings them?
selves give the book its chlof and unique
THE .RELIGION OF THE NEVv' TES?
TAMENT.?By Bernhard Weiss. Pp.,
?ICO. $2 net.. Funk and 'Wagnalls
? In a day and generation In which we
hear it often said that modern Christian?
ity Is a ' very different thing from tho
doctrinal teachings of Jesus Christ, It.
wae. Important that some .one-well quali?
fied for that not too easy task should
expound to us exactly what Is the relig?
ion of the New Testament. Fow mon
alive to-dny, portiaps, are so well equipped
for' this work as Dr. Weiss, of the -Uni?
versity of Horlln, who gave ample evi-'
donees of his scholarship and learning In
his earlier orltlcal work on an nllled
theme. "A Manual of Introduction? to the
New Testament."- To his present under?
taking, -Dr. Weiss was prompted by a.
conviction, as he phrases It, that tho va?
rious "different types of doctrine fur?
nished by a theology of tho New Testa?
ment must be supplemented by u work
giving the underlying unity of this di?
versify," and .by porslstontly allowing
the Scriptures to sneak for themselves,.
ho has succeeded In comprehending in
his volume a lucid exposition of what
New Testament religion really Is. Wher?
ever posslhlo, the 'accuracy of his state-.
mente Is guaranteed by referonco, by.
work, chapter and number, to the pas-,
sages upon which they are based; often
there will he dozens of these to tho
page.. The thoroughness of Dr. Welss's
acquaintance with tho Bible is, indeed,
to the lay mind nothing short of .aston?
ishing. His book Is nblo, dlgnlied and
profound, nnd to the studontof theology,
whether for orders or not, will prove o?
MY OWN STORY.?By Caleb Powers. Pp.,:

As to the public need of Caleb Powors's
own story there may bo - room for d!-.
vergence of:oplnlon; hut from the point
of view of tho author's desire tu'domon- ?
strato his Innocence to hie countrymen,.
Its publication' was- no doubt Just Ilia hie.
Mr. Powers, as- will.ubo recalled,? was'
more or? less Involved* with tho-?lectloa
disturbances In Kentucky In 1S&9. was
arrested and three times? convicted for
the murder of Governor-elect William
Goebel, and Is now In prison, pending a
new trial. Puv*** ?nterest in the circum?
stances of Gomel's assassination and its
aftermath Is such that the bulk of the
story hero told Is readable enough; but
we ore Inclined to doubt that a gre.it
many people will care greatly to road
a detailed account of the autoblographer's
hoyhood nnd youth. AShatever conse?
quence Mr. Power.? may have In tho
public eye Is due, we should Imagine, to
his unhappy complication with tho death
of Goebel, rather than to any personal
importance. Barring this unnecessary
dlffuseness, his own story will no doubt
appeal, though less strongly, to the class
who were attracted to Mrs.. Maybrlck'e
