AMONG THE AUTHORS
Robert Bonner's Sons are now iasuing
in tbeir choice aeries some of Mrs.
Sontbworth'a bast novels. One of the
later issues is "Only a Girl's Heart,"
which is a most delightful atory, con
taining charming pictures of society in
tbe South and womanly characters of
great beauty. Tbere is a cbarm about
all of Mrs. Southworth's novels, quiet
and unpretentious, and though long
drawn out, as many of them are, Bhe
holds the reader's attention and makes
life a holiday. They are pleasant books
for an idle day at home or a traveler's
"The Rejected Bride" and "Gertrude
Haddon" are the titles of the second and
third numbers of "Only a Girl's Heart."
These three novels are all connected by
a thread of story Bnd deal with the
same characters. The series reads con
tinuously and is essentially one novel,
although each book forms more or less
a distinct narrative. The interest of the
first novel is carried forward with in
creasing power until tbe close of the
third. Few authors, living or dead,
have Bwayed so wide an influence or
held readers with a more sovereign
power than this delightful novelist.
Many readers are gratified to meet tbeir
acquaintances in the successive
books of a favorite author. F.
Marion Crawford owes a great
deal of hiß popularity to the Roman
family of the Saracineßca, whose for
tunes in succeeding generations are told
in his novels. So this series by Mrs.
Southworth will furnish a whole win
ter's reading to ber admirers, and all
about the same people. The illustra
tions of these novels add very much to
their beauty and interest.
Merrill & Brown bave juat iaaued a
new volume from the pen of Albion W.
Tourgee, tbe title being, Oat of tbe Sun
set Sea. This new book is a romance of
the age of discovery, which revivea the
special period of tbe first voyage of
Columbus, with its atmospbere of un
rest and daring speculation. It repro
duces the aociety of tbat remote time,
with the particulars of manners,
speech, and quaint attire. Tbe youngest
son of an English lord is set apart for
the service of the churcb against hia
will by an arbitrary father. He leaves
home with the prospect of gaining mili
tary honors in Spain, but he narrowly
eecapeß the inquisition, and that only
by fleeing in disguise to the shelter of
the Santa Maria. Christopher Colum
bus, seeking tbe completion of bis mot
ley crew, gladly acceptß hia offer, and
with the "white-haired wizard" the
young man sails down the "steep of the
westward sea." The romantic narrative
is especially appropriate to a year of
Columbian festivity, and it haa the
merit of following the most recent his
torical investigation. Tbe chapter heads
and pen-and-ink illustrations by Miss
Tourgee, noticeable for their" eimplicity
of treatment, are a source of distinction
to the volume.
An intereeting book published by Lee
& Shepard oompanvof Boston iB Dreame
of the Dead, by Edward Stanton. In
calling attention to euch a work there is
no need of falling into the weakness of
cheap superlatives. Friendly and un
friendly criticß are agreed that in many
ways it is a remarkable book. Yet, in
tbe ordinary sense of the word, it ie not
a novel, either in art, dimension or aim.
It takee the form of simple narrative,
and purports to give an account of cer
tain PBychic experiences of the author.
The style in which the book ia written
perhaps contributes in some meaaure to
thia effect. It is appropriate and be
guiling. It has none of the falsetto of
tbe sensationalist; rhapsody and rant
•re excluded; even tbe exclamatory is
abaent. It ia pervaded by tbe Bomber
gray, the local color, if one might bo call
it, of the subject. It is eober and or
derly, but with an easy, flowing move
ment—caught, one would think, from
the gliding ghosts—that gently lilts the
reader off his feet and carriea him along
whether he wisbea it or not. The book
deala with the most abstruse problems
that vex, perplex and fascinate tbe soul
of man. It does not pose as authorita
tive; it ia not declarative,-as a whole;
but, on the contrary, it is replete with a
fine feminine quality—the delicate yet
gigantic power of suggestiveneßa. Ab
thia book Bhows, there may be sermons
in dreams as well as in stones. It is
rare to find a book pretending so little
yet lending bo much in tbe way of sug
gestion as this Dreams of tbe Dead.
Another peculiar book from Lee &
Rbepard'a list ie Twelve Months in An
English Prison, by Susan Willis Fletch
er. This unique volume embodies the
personal experience of Mrs. Fletcher, a
lady well-known in spiritualistic circles
as a medium of unusual power, who was
falsely imprisoned in England for a
whole year. The story of this lady's
wrongs baa in itself a strong dramatic
element, but the main interest in the
book centers, undoubtedly, in the sin
gular phenomena with which all of her
Bxperiencea were attended. During ber
Imprisonment Mrs. Fletcher was fed
with grapes by friendly "epiritß:"
tnougb spiritual influence was enabled to
bold converse with distant friends, to
bave transmitted letters instantaneously
between London and remote places,
and otherwise to defy the usual re
straints of time and apace. Whether
tbe reader ia a believer in Spiritualism
or not, the novelty of these incidents
cannot fail to fix the attention and
iwaken a lively interest in tbe progress
»f the story. The book has all the fas
cination of a clever ghost Btory, to which
DO distractiug explanation has been
added. It piquee the curiosity, more
over, becauae tbe writer ie a lady well
known in New England, and so highly
■ateemed that her truthfulness cannot
tie impeached. Tbe style of tbe book ia
dear, concise and pungent, free from
indue flights of rhetoric and petty per
One of the Soribner's Sons' new bookß
to The Barbary Coast, by Dr. Henry M.
Northern Africa ia not exaotly terra
ncognita to American tourists, but ita
icenery and ita people bave not become
kackneyed through the lucubrations of
. toe globe-trotters, and a certain degree
of novelty attends every new book
dealing with that picturesque and half
civilized region. Dr. Henry M. Field,
who always writes freshly and enter
tainingly, even of tbe Albambra or the
pyramids, has therefore a most fertile
theme in his account of a winter's jour
ney along the Barbary coast. Dr.
Field's route took him from Gibralter
to Tangiers, from there to Nemours and
Oran by sea, then by rail to Algiers,
through the Kabylia, and so by Setif
and Constantino to Carthage. Of the
characteriatica of tbe towns where
he lingered, of the country be
passed through, of his travel
ing companions, and of the
natives Dr. Field writes with shrewd
observation and unfailing good humor.
The lights and ahadowa o! African life
attract hia attention ; he gives a chapter
to lion bunting in Nnmidia, diacouraes
eloquently of Auguatine aa the laet great
man of Africa, and has something to say
of the possibilities of French domina
tion. In conclusion be drawa a vivid
picture of the crumbling power of the
Moslem in northern Africa and predicts
the speedy outbreak of a holy war which
will be tbe last stand of Mohammedan
ism against the inroads of modern civil
ization. The volume is handsomely il
lustrated witb 14 full page half-tone en
gravings after photographs. Tbe narra
tive abounds in finely contrasted de
scriptionß, piquant anecdotes and
sketches of character and will be keenly
relished by all who read it, while bb a
concise study of a region rapidly coming
within the sphere of international pol
itics Dr. Field's work baa obvioua value.
Charles H. Sergei & Co. of Chioago
are at present issuing a series of volumes
treating of the history, government and
national peculiarities oi the Latin-
American republics. In thia series the
second volume ia devoted to Chile, and
is written by Anson Urial Hancock.
There have been recently a number of
booka giving in Engliab a more or less
full account of certain periods and epi
sodes in Chilean history, but Mr. Han
cock's work, though it dwells at length
upon recent occurrences and doubtless
haa ita raison d'etre in the newly awak
ened interest in South American affaire,
covers the whole Btory Irom the Spanish
invasions to the present time. Its parts
are devoted respectively to Tho Ooloniai
and Revolutionary Periods, The Era
of Constitution Making, The War with
Peru and Bolivia, Balmaceda and the
Civil War of '01, and Cliile of Today.
This outline reveals rii important at
tempt, and Mr. Hancock has apparently
succeeded in making tbe attempt result
in an important book. It is a serious
and needed contribution to our knowl
edge of a sister republic. Besides the
text thero Is valuable material in maps,
illustrations, bibliography aud tbe ap
pended constitution of Chile.
Funk & Wagnalla Co. of New York
are now publishing the last book by
Marietta Holley, so well known aa
"Josiah Allen's Wile " The title ia
Samanthaat the World's Fair.
A good many people throughout the
length and bread.h of the land would
have been disappointed if Josiah Allen's
Wife had failed to visit the Columbian
fair, or had been so completely over
come by its i.nmeusity ub to be unable
to record her experiences. Misß Holley,
beneath the humor oi ber style, man
ages to convey a good many impressions
of tho Chicago sights and td enforce
here and there some significant lessons.
The numerouß illustrations by Baron C.
de Grimm are, of course, a very iin
portant factor in the laughter-provoking
power of the book.

One of the most important events at.
tbe world's fair at Chicago was tbe con
gress of religions. This waa attended
by representative delegates of the more
important creeds of the world.
Papers on the following main topics
and innumerable subdivieions were
read: God, Immortality, the Scrip
tures, Comparative Religions, Judaism,
Christ, Hindooism, Buddhism, the
Bramo Somay-Sbiutoiam and other ori
ental religions, Mohaminediem and
otherß. These were all prepared by
men high in tbe councils of tbeir vari
ous churches, and of a necessity tbe
proceedings attracted tbe greatest inter
Roy. Dr. J. W. Hanson, a veteran
churcb newspaper man, has collected
and collated the proceedings o( this
unique congress in a'most interesting
volume, published by tbe official pub
lishers of the exposition, and which is
Bold only by subscription.
Dr. Hanson is wintering in Pasadena,
at the corner of Columbia and Pasadena
avenues, where those wishing to secure
agencier can find him. He is here pre
paring an exhaustive book on Southern
California, to be illustrated.
Dr. Hanson haa done hia work of ar
ranging the papers in the volume under
consideration with great ability. Every
advocate of each particular creed is given
a full showing, and the papers
are interspersed with well exe
cuted portraits of the principal con
tributors. The volume forms a complete
showing of the religious tendencies of
every part of the world, and indicates a
wonderful increase in the feeling of tol
erance and charity tbat even fanatical
followers of one belief nowdays show
for the subscribers to another creed. It
is a volume that can be read witb profit
by all, irrespective of the conditions of
belief or unbelief, orthodoxy or hetero

A FINANCIAL DIALOGUE.
Colloquy Overheard Between Farmer
Bagg-i and Mr. Periwig, Merchant.
Mr. Periwig—Good morning, Mr.
Baggs: how wags the world witb you
Farmer Bagga—About as common,
thank you; bur times are awful dull
and we are doing very little on the farm
Mr. P.—Why not? What's the mat
Farmer B.—Oh, prices are away down;
we can get nothing for our produce, and
why should we waste our time in raising
things we cannot Bell, can you tell?
Mr. P.—But it will not do to give up
farming entirely ; else we will all starve.
You mußt raise something, whether it
pays or not. Isn't that so, Mr. Bssga?
Farmer B.—Well, yes; we raise a
little to eke out a living; but we are all
the while falling behindhand,
we raiee little or much, and that is veryj
discouraging. Can you tell what tha.!
matter is, and why you merchants dm
not pay living prices for our grain aJH
other stuff, aa formerly.
Mr. P.—The fact is, my friend, mjneyl
is terribly tight, and times barderflnjkp/
ever before. We would gladly pey fetC/r
prices for your truck, but reallz-'we
cannot afford it. \
Farmer B. —Well, what makes myney
so scarce? What has brought this tori-:
dition of things about? What \»'
caused tlio hard times? You merchants
ought to be able to explain. Tell us
where the money has gone.
Mr. P.—Why, it is known quite gen
erally that contraction of the currency
has beon going on in this country fur a
longtime; in fact, ever since the war;
not witb steadiness and uniformity, but
nevertheless with great certainty. It
has been the polic? of the government
under both parties and lirb been pur
sued witb such vigor that now the
quantity of money iv the country is
reduced to a very low ebb. The money
iv actual circulation does not amount to
$7 per bead of the citizetiß, wbereas it
ought to he seven times seven for the
proper transaction of business. In
France, where less money to the man is
needed, the amount in circulation per
capita is fully $50, and owing to this
übundance oi money France is today
the most prosperous country in the
Farmer B. -But how, Mr. Periwig,
was thia reduction of money in this
country brought about? What pro
Mr. P.—That is a proper question and
easily answered. It is brought about by
the bankers, with the co-operation of
the government at Washington. We
have in the United States neatly 4000
nation*., banks. They are, in a proper
sense, government institutions and are
able to command tbe support and co
operation of the government in all their
financial movements. Acting in concert
they can contract or expand the volume
of the currency at thei.-own sweet will,
anil contraction is their policy now.
Farmer B.—But why should the
banks desire to contract the currency?
What advantage can it be to them?
Will you explain ?
Mr. P. —Yes. That iB plain enough.
By restricting the quantity of money,
that which remains is the more valuable
and will command more products. The
more valuable money is tbe lees valu
able ia everytiiing that money will buy.
\v hen money is scarce and dear every
thing else ie cheap. In Hush times you
can get a dollar for a bushel of wheat,
but in times like tbeae you do well to
get a dollar for two buahelß.
Farmer B. —But I have heard it de
nied that money ia scarce. My neigh
bor Jacoba heard a banker say the other
day tbat money was never more abund
ant. Are you quite sure tbere is not
enough money out somewhere to do tbe
Mr. P.—Well, let ua see. What inter
est are you paying on tbat mortgage of
Farmer B. —Ten per cent; and my
banker tells me there iB plenty of money
to loan at that rate upon good security.
Mr. P.—But, if times were good and
money plenty would you pay that high
rate of interest? We used to borrow
money when we needed it at G per cent
on no better security, did we not?
Farmer B.—Well, yes. But can't you
account for the high rate of interest and
the low price of products in any other
way than by the action of the bankß
and of congress in reatricting the amount
of money in circulation? I read in my
paper last week tbat tbe tariff is re
sponsible for the bard times; may not
that be the case?
Mr. P.—By no means. The tariff haß
but little, if anything, to do with it.
The demonetization of silver waa a long
step in the direction of contracting tbe
currency, but not the only step. By
concerted action among the banks, tbe
bearding of money is now going on, and
before long the condition of the country
financially will be so desperate that
tbe people must have money from
some source and at all hazards. Then
the national banka will be in a position
to demand of congress tbe granting of
other privileges as a condition of fur
nishing money to the paople, and among
tbe privileges demanded by the banks
will be tht/authority to iaaue their own
uotea upon the deposit of any kind of
bonds that may bs approved by the
comptroller of the currency. This s
the present aim of the banks, and when
they are authorized to furnish the
money, tbere will probably be pleanty
of it fo; a time; but the banks will then
hold the power, more firmly than ever,
to create panics whenever tbeir interests
may be subserved thereby.
Farmer B. —Did you mean to say that
the late contest in congress over tbe
silver question was carried on by the
Mr. P.—Moat certainly. All of the
4000 of those institutions have a perfect
understanding among themselves on
every great financial question. Tbeir
organization is complete. It ia strictly
non-pgrtizan and professes to be non
political, but it is political in the broad
est sense of the term. It dictates public
policy and commands legislation witb
an iron will. Congress and presidents
are as puppets iv its bands. Whatever
tbe banka require at Washington is sure
to be done, even though it should fya
tbe trampling under foot of party plat
forms and the violation of most sacred
Farmer B.—Well, I am obliged to you,
Mr. Periwig, and I will lookr further
into this matter, for it does seem to
concern us all, and the termors in par
ticular. But I will not plant much this
year; indeed I cannot raise money to
buy the seed, and if I could, where
would be the object in doing so? Gov
ernor Flower of New York seems to
bave had a pretty clear appreciation of
tbe situation wben be said tbat all the
farmer could clear nowadays on his farm
was a six-rail fence when the sheriff was
after him. Good bye.

The National Bank of California is one of tbe few banks that saccesifully stood the (heck
of the late panic, and maintained full coin payments right through.
The Nationnl Bang of California pays no Interest on deposits in any form, offers no special
Inducements for business other than reliability when the customers exercise their right to de
mand their money.
In the matter of loans it looks more to reliability than high rates of Interest, and desires do
loanH except from good and reliable parties, and then exacts good security, believing thlt no
bank is better or more reliable than its loans.
