AMONG THE AUTHORS
One of Appleton & Co.'b new and
interesting books is by Rudyard Kip
ling, entitled Many Inventions. Whether
one likes or dislikes the kind, there are
no short stories more likely to be read
in book folrm than Kipling's. If there
were nothing to them but the strange
ness, to Americans, of all the scenes an J
most of the people and their doings,
they would compel attention, though
some readers found themselves at times
shocked and disgusted. The volume
above named is a collection of the latest
%nd some of the best of Mr. Kipling's
*orbs it is less "scrappy" than some
earlier volumes, and the contents are ar
ranged with an eye to contrast. There
are 15 tales, all quite long, for short
stories, the book containing more than
400 pages. Among them are an amusing
and skillfully told experience of a mono
maniao who kept a lighthouse; Private
Mulvaney's yarn of how he scraped ac
quaintance "with an elephant; a wise
Hindoo's impressions of London, which
is quite as uncomplimentary ai Any
thing Kipling ever said about America;
a strange study of reincarnation of a
Greek galley-slave in the person of an
ignorant little bank clerk; a recital of
the uncanny experiences of a ship's crew
who sailed over a submarine volcano
at the instant of eruption, a weird and
powerful tale of a battlefield where the
dead rose at night and marched with
the living—a genuine Indian fever
dream, some strange adventures with a
veritable fawn of tha jungle, and etill
another yarn, in unusual vein, by the
voluble Mulvaney—the story of a lady
killer so determined that he lost rank,
social standing and everything through
his vice, and died wretchedly and
dramatically. The only love story in
the book is that of a London coster
monger'B deserted wife, a woman quite
as common as anyone could imagine,
yet who lived a nseful life and hoped
for the return of the brute whom she
loved, and received death as the re
ward of her constancy. There is no
where the faintest indication that any
of the author's own special views, ex
cept that of the rotten social life of
India, is in danger of being worked out.
Lee & Shepard of Boston have issued
a new book which will be eagerly sought
for by book lovers. It is Lowell, the
Poet and the Man, by Francis H. Under
wood. For two years or more the
monthly dinners of the Atlantic con
tributors occurred on the day of publi
cation. They were generally at Park
er's, but one wae at Fontarive'e in Win
ter Place and one at Porter's in North
Cambridge. It ia a misfortune that no
notes were, kept of the table-talk. Tbe
gatherings were memorable, and would
have been memorable in any city of the
world. Tbe description in thia volume
1b very vivid and thereader can imagine
easily the bright, powerfnl and inspired
faces that surrounded the ellipse al
most like a eight of yesterday. Each
guest in turn seems to fix his eyes upon
tbe on-looker in this miraculons camera.
The group is immortal; the separate
laces so many varying expressions of
genius. Brilliant lights aud softly lu
minous shadee seem to play around the
table, until the colors and forms are
mingled as in the heart of a picture by,
Turner. There was Holmes in the AubL
of his new fame as the autocrat —a
man whose genius flamed out in
bis speech and expression aa clearly
as in hia original and sparkling worke.
There wbb Lowell, with features of sin
gularity and eyes which dazzled and
charmed. In merriment he was irra
eistible; in higher moods his face shone
like a soul made visible. There was
Emerecm, thoughtful, but shrewdly ob
servant, and with the placid look of an
optimistic philosopher, whoae smile wae
a benediction; Longfellow, with a head
which Phidias might have modeled, by
turns calm or raaiant, fieldota epeaking,
but always using the tit word; Agaeaiz,
glowing with good-humor, Biniple in
phrase and masßivo in intellect; Whit
tier, with noble head and deep-set, bril
liant eyes, grown spare and taciturn
from ill-health, an acetic at table, eager
only for intellectual enjoyment; Qaincy,
with patrician air, curious learning and
felicity in epigram; Lwi.nht, with the
sky-reaching architeetureof Beethoven's
symphonies iv his brain; Felton,
Greek to hia ringers' ends, happy in
wise discourse and in Homeric laughter;
Motley, the stateliest man of bis time,
jtist about to depart for Europe, there to
carry on hia lifelong work; Norton, the
lecturer on art, future editor of (Jarlyle'a
letters; Cabot, a veteran contributor to
the Dial; Whipple, with two-storied
bead and bulbous spectacles, keen critic
and good talker. Of thase mentioned,
Holmes, Dwight, Cabot and Norton
alone survive. And ao the pen portrait
of theee men, their timts and surround
ings, stands out in dear cut relief in the
pages of thia book ; amd us you read they
become your companions, you ait at the
same table, you laugh at their jokes and
witticismß, and become "hail fellow,
well mot," closing the book with a fond
"adioa" for the present*—but not a last
One of Tait, Pons & Co.'s later publi
cations is Oriole's Daughter, by Jeßaie
Fothergill. Like Cosinopolis, this most
interesting book—tbe last written before
her death by the gifted author of The
first Violin—opens in the city of Rome,
and, as in the ca°e of ilourget's chef
d'uiiivue, it is the moral miasma of that
tainted city, which threatens to the
point of destruction one or two very
beautiful livee. fhe story ia one of
wild oats, sown in youth and and reaped
in middle life in bitter penitence of soul;
of an innocent and beautiful daughter
sacrificed in marriage by an unnatural
mother to a wealthy ond repulaive toy.6 ;
of a human soul seamd into iodiffevenee
by the horrid contact, and of a great
temptation—the natural outcome of the
situation—escaped as l>v fire. Life in
Rome is sketched with a masterly and
sympathetic touch, and when the scene
changes to fhe north of England the
atmosphere of the Btory change* as ab
ruptly 'rom tbe humid breath St tbe
aouth to the br.einar air of the
English shires. A youcg Englishwoman
atudying art in Rome, takee an interest
in flignor Orioles, the superintendsnt of

shrewd, unattractive, middle-aged wom
an, haa arranged a marriage for her
danghter with a rich Anatralian cad,
and the girl, after the manner of her
coantry, ia willing to be married to the
follow, though ahe hates him. The
Engliahwoman's attempt to cave her
faile, the marriage takea place, aad Big
nor Oriolea leavea the house and its
owner forever. The character of Signor
Oriolea ia drawn with exqniaite skill and
affords a rare atndy. Signora Dietrich
compele our unwilling admiration for
her talente and forcefulneea, but other
wiae ahe revolte na unspeakably. Min
nie Heatings, the Englishwoman —the
good angel of the piece—ie a fine, atrong
character, but ac for Hans Riemann, of
whom we expected ao much, at the «nd
we only recall the "feet of clay." The
etory ia" well and clearly told ; it ia full
of exqniaite passages, ia delicately writ

picion of groianeaa.
Caaeell Publishing company are pub
lishing a tranalation by E. P. Kobina of
Pierre Loti'e new novel. Matelot, under
the title of Jean Berny, Sailory. Jean
ia introduced to us aa a Utile fellow
inarching aa an anrjel in the proceaaion
of the Fete Dieu, on a June day, "be
neath the warm, bright southern ann, in
remote Provence, where it touchea
Italy." Even thna early in hia life,
and in spite of the featal occasion, a
prescience of trouble vexes the mind of
hia widowed mother, who followa the
procession. The atory ia a direct, ap
parently eimple description of the prin
ciple eventa of Jean Berny'a life. But
the aimplicity is really that attained
only by one who ie master of hia art, ao
delightful to appreciate, co difficult to
perform. We sea Jean "a compound of
irreclaimable boyishness, phyaical ex
uberance, rude eimplicity, and uncon
cioua, unfathomable piety," living
in tbe old home with hia
mother and grandfather. To be a sailor
ia the dream of Jean'e boyhood, and bit
by bit the old place ia aaerificed, thafehe
may obtain a naval education. He fails,
however, to paaa the examination, and
entera the aorvice before the mast. In
apite of hia real desire to advance, most
of hia efforta are fotile becauae of the
very elementa that enter into hia char
acter. Finally cornea the pitiful tragedy
of hia death; the unsatisfied young life
goea out, and the paupered, idolizing
mother ia left alone. One cloaes the
book thinking of Henry Jamea' remark
concerning De Maupaaeant, that "what
ia cleareat to him ia the immitigability
of our moral predicament, with ita oc
caaional beguilementa and its innumer
able woes;" and alao, of his other
worda about style, that "to have color
and be aober with it ie an ideal."
A powerful atory jaet pubiiahed by
Robert Bonner'e Bona of New York City,
ia The Honor of a Heart, translated from
tbe German of Vacano by Mary J. Baf
ford, the well-known translator of The
Little Cotmteaa, Little Heather-Bloa
aom, etc. Thia ia a love etory of deep
and entrancing interest. It deals with
spirited and atriking characters, and
touchea the hi?heat and lowest in the
aocial acale. There are chapters in it of
wonderful power. In tbe working ont of
' the plot curious Bpecimene of humanity
are made to plfty a part. In the skill
and brilliancy witb which tbe author haa
developed her Btory thiß novel ia re
markable in German fiction. Mill Saf

render into' Engliah is unerring, and
since Bho discovered Werner and first
brought that great author to the notice
of the American public ehe baa conatant
ly increaaed the debt due her by the
reading public. lilnatrationa cf thia

the beauty of the volume. A charming

There are now departures in book

The Lateet BrltUh N»vsl "Accident."
Until aome of onr monstrous new bat
tleahips ehall have been completed and
put into active aervice, we may perhapa
be wiae in refraining from making
comparieone with foreign ehipa of thia
type; but from what we already know
of the quality of the work turned out by
American deaignera and builders, we do
not fear any auch calamity aa lately be
fell H. M. S. Victorra. At thia writ
ing no detaila have been received, but it
teems certain that tbe accident waa
caneed by the breaking down of the
machinery of one or tbe other of the two
vessels — probably the Victoria —
whereby Bhe waa unable to avoid the
oncoming rtieh of her friendly deatroyer.
Defective machinery is somewhat lese a
characteristic of British men-of-war
than defective boilera and unaeaworthy
construction. In none of these particu
lars have American-built warships ao far
ehown weaknesa or inefficiency. The
only "eurpriaea" have been thoae caused
by unexpected excellence, the aingle ex
ception being the Monterey, at San
Franciaco last month, whose boilera were
found to be unequal to therequirementa;
but when we are told that tneae boilera
were made in Scotland tbe eur
priae ceases to exist. It would
be hard indeed to imagine one
of our warehipa plunging full head
into a sister ship on a smooth sea and
in broad daylight. Careless aeajnanahip
or a mieanderatanding of orders or sig
nals might precipitate auch a disaster;
but a more probable cause would be a
breaking down or failure Of the ma
chinery, and America does not build
her ahipa that way. The British admir
alty haa made many grievous mistakes
in the construction of armored war
ships, as the rusting wrecks in Davey
Jones' locker amply prove, Britieh
builders are learning, however; partly
from costly experience, but chiefly from
the products of American shipyards,
and when tbey leaan to conform to the
best modern methods of construction,
get rid of the pig-headed engineers who
esteem nothing good that ia not Engliah,
and spend their millions for perfect ma
terials rather than for paying aalariea to
titled numbakulla, they will eufTer
fewer loaaee like that of the Sultan and
the Victoria. A battle-ship of the
modern type ahould be provided with
machinery of tbe most perfect and
truatworthy kind, for she ie certain to
sink if an enemy of anywhere equal
weight can succeed in driving an
armored prow into tbe practically un
protected hull a few feet balow the
water line, as might easily be done by a
hostile ram of inferior power, were the
battle-chip deprived of the full uae of
her propellers and ateering apparatus.
While tbe world stands accidents will
happen, but there i 8 a wide difference
between those that cannot be foreaeen
and tboee that occur through gross ig
j norance or expensive economy.—[Blue

Heroic Work by a Yoan; Girl.
Helen PatehftlL the 14-year old daugh
ter of Charles W. Patchell, a well known
citizen of Darby, rproved herself a hero
ine yesterday. Alighting from the noon
train at Boono station, Miss Patchell
paused to allow an express train to pass
on the opposite track. She held by the
hand the 5-year-old son of Edward Kirk
patrick, Mr. Patehell's partner.
As the train thundered through the
tunnel and swept under a bridgo less
than a hundred yards away she saw her
own baby brother and sister run" down
to meet her and stop on the track in the
face of the approaching train.
An instant's delay meant death to
both. If she attempted to rescue them,
she herself and the little boy might bo
ground under tho engine. The engine
whistle shrieked, and tho heavy train
rushed on. Tho great wheels, pulling
the fastest train on tho road, were count
ing off 70. miles an hour.
While tho neighbors rushed to their
doors, alarmed by tho whistle, and stood
horror stricken, Miss Helen never hes
itated, but draggingthe littJo boy across
the tracks she pushed her brother and
her sister from the rails upon the plat
form and scrambled up herself with the
boy. The engine dashed by, sweeping
aside tho dregs of the brave girl, and tho
suction of the train drew her almpst un
der the wheels.
So close was tho escape of tho little
party that the mother of tho girl, who
was a witness of the episode, and tho
servants on the lawn turned away their
heads, thinking that all would be ground
to pieces by'the engine.—Chester Cor.
Itoyalty and Mustaches.
It has been remarked that in addition
to her other personal attractions tho in
fanta is in possession of what the French
call leger duvet, or, in plain English, the
down upon the upper lip. American
women, more particularly thoso whoso
associations and observations havo boon
confined to their nativo land, havo come
to look upon tho leger duvet as some
thing uufominino and unattractive. It
is rather a distinctive matter of pride,
however, to the beauties of tho Latin
nations, and is taken, moreover, as a
badge of strength of character and an
indication of eelf reliance without as
suming the coarser vigor of masculinity.
When Rome was in its "most high
and palmy state," tho women of tho re
fined and cultured set affected n,ot only
the down on the lip, but a hirsute growth
on the face. They resorted to artificial
means and smeared ointment over their
cheeks to stimulate the growth of hair.
Cicero says that the practice became so
universal that a law was passed against
it. The Greeks also were affected in the
same manner and gave their Cyprian
Venus a beard to enhance her good looks.

Imitations of American MaaaCaatstraa.
Consuls have become weary of calling
attention to frauds dangerous to the
trade of the United States which are
conducted on a gigantic scale in Europe.
The Germans reprodpoe -American sew
ing machines, stoves and all aorta of
tools, substituting iron for steel. They
mark them with the names and brands
of Yankee manufacturers and send them
to South America, Africa and *11 qver
tho worlJl. Though of wretched quality
they are cheap and actually crowd out
tho real American goods. In this fash
ion iron machetes are substituted.for our
own steel onea in South' America, and
Colt's and Romington'a revolvers are
hurlesquod, as one might say, in the
cheapest possible materials. American
machines are taken arpart, and the pieces
are copied with iron castings, which are
put together to form olnmsy counter
feits. This ia done with all of the finest
The imitations lead, the observer to
Speculate as to the probable period of
time during which tho world would have
been without auch useful inventions if
it had Ijpen left to Europeans to discover
them. Ingenious Britishers are making
counterfeits of Yankee textile fahrifs,
and the looms of Manchester are turn
ing out millions of yards of cotton an
nually-which bear the names and brands
of American manufacturers. These cot
tons are marketed in China because the
Chinese have -a liking for products of
thia sort from the United States. They
are very hoavily "sized" < with white of
egg to give them a good appearance. Of
course t-he "sizing" doos not/istand a
wash. One consul in China
ed that ao umbrella should be sold with
each bolt of such cottons, inasmuch as a
lady who happens to »be canght by a
shower in a nice cotton dress too of ten
comos homo wearing a mosquito bar.
In the same way American sheetings,
muslins and calicoes are beitig drive©
out of Central American markets by
wretched goods made from East Indian
and Egyptian short staple cotton and
bearing tho trademark of the best Amer
ican mills.—Boston Transcript.
A Field For Missionary Effort.
the American missionaries are
thrown out of Chjna in retaliation for
the Geary law, it is to b« hoped thap the
American board will arrange to main
tain them all for a tjme ip the Pacific
states. Titer© seems to bo a great op
portunity thero for missionary effort;.
Missionaries who have lived long in
China may be expected to know more
about tho Chinese than even the Calif of
nians do. If they tackled the Californi
ans, one of ttvo things might be expected
to happen. Either thoy would convert
fhe Californians to better sentiments
about the Chinese, or tbe Californians
would convince them that their anti-
Chinese persuasions are justified.
In tho latter case Ihe missionaries
could be brought east to correct the
views of 'our part of the country, since
it is impqrtant that whatever aig tho
right views about the Chinese tho whole
country should hold them. To have one
section of the land maintain views of
cheap labor which all tho reformers in
the rest of the country denounce is a
stato of things of which tho United
States has already had all the experience
it wants.—Harper's Weekly.

The National Bank of California is one of the few banks that successfully stood the shock o
the late panto and maintained full com paymchta right through.
The National Bank of California paya no Interest on deposits In any form, offers no speeia
Inducements for business other than reliability when the Customers exercise tbeir rights to de
mand their money. . , ,
In the matter of loans It looks more to reliability than high rates of Interest, and desires no
loans except (rom good and reliable parties, and' then exacts good security, believing that no
bauA is better or more reliable than its loans.
