Probably never before has there ap
ivenred such a wonderful defence of
modern art and music ns .Mr. Shaw Ins
given us in his criticism. With a keen
ness of perception that amounts almost
to Intuition ho distinguishes the dif
ference between true beauty of thought
and the coatse pretense of the Ignorant
Imitator and shows at once that he per
ceives those subtle distinctions hidden
to the blunter sensibilities of the Ger
Nordau Is a brutal critic who glories In
his brutality ami Shaw exposes his
vulgar ptoletises with a satiie too keen
for thu dull perception of one whose
stock in trade Is merciless attack upon
what he falls to comprehend sensitive
ness?. When Shaw sums up all of
Nordau's postulates in one sentence,
that ho (Nordau) hnd sense enough to
know that a. reactionary book would
meet with leady sale, he expt esses
such a volume of condemnation that it
seems a pity lie has felt compelled to
occupy several pages of an estimable
periodical in u scathing expose of vul
garity and brutality.
Those who know tho difference between
sentiment and hentlmentality; between
the dull glare of an opal and the iri
descent fire-play of the same stone; be
tween tho bomber gray tones of rock
and heather on mountain side and the
delicate color distinctions seen by the
more sensitive eye; between the Haunt
ing imagery ot mercenary daubers and
the subtlo impression work of artists
who have souls; between the coarse
space wiiter who says things because
thoy make his wares "sell" and the
thinker who writes the impressions that
see-m almost God-glvcn in their Inspira
tion; all these will feel a, tinge of sorrow
because Shaw felt it necessary to de
vote so much space to a vulgar pre
tender whose unworthlness should have
been its own condemnation.
Yet the world Is better off because of
Nordau'a "Degeneration," for it has
given to us Shaw's criticism and defense
of art. It has brought out one of tho
most masterly pieces of sarcasm that
has reached the reading world In a gen
eration, and in that, if in nothing more,
it has aided In the elevation of human
ui:t'iKu una I'ltrmsoTiox.

The eortalhiy that lhe Went bottoms

outlet by nirftiis of a v'a.luc-t on T-enty-thlid

a problem I hat has occasioned a great
deal of vexation for some lime past. Ac

with the varuus railroads Interested,
the illy Is asktd to pay only on Itlslg"

more than ten time that amount. This

and demonstrates the fact that the rail

trlbtttlnff toward an enterprise that H
for the good or tho city, thotitrh they are
among the first to testnt attempts at
hold-ups. the city should avail ltnelf
ot the opportunity to secure the viaduct
without unnecessary delay.
That tho congested condition of the
West bottoms tralllc hnd to be relieved
sooner or later has been tealtxod for n
long time, but the efforts to afford the
relief have been hamiered by conflict
ing Interests thai should now be recon
ciled. The main thing is lo secure relief
from a condition that seriously Inter
feres with tratllc and Is also a source
of danger. Sectional differences ought
not to bo permitted to Interfere with the
carrying out of an enterprise thai ineann
so much for the entire West bottoms

Thus, after having demonstrated by a Verv
subtle analysis that in Wagner the philo
sophic Ideas conorning life are contradict
ory or archaic such us the Idea of tho
struggle between the llch and the soul,
or between the spirit and the sn.es ho
concludes that Wagner was tlx-reforo
crazy, and not a gvnlus. I.lkt wise, because
of TolMol's mysticism, or his deruelvo
ideas on lov and science, lie diem Tols
toi Insane and his books nonsense.
Hut probably all genlunc have the ee
centrlcttlis. and even the delirious Ideas,
which he notices In Tolstoi. Wanner .iiul
Ib'en. The last chapter of (ioi-the's "Wit
helm Melster'' Is more incomprehensible
and extravagant than the Ideas of Tolstoi;
while Ualzac's scientific opinions., and his
innumerable tlulds, would ilr.d m.ites in
tlu literature of msane asylums. To dem
onstrate tlut geniuses are Insane Is not
dllllcult, bei-aus.e, as 1 and Others before me
have shown, genius U a form of degener
ative nurosiif. C.-rtnlnly Polctevln, JIa.1
!arm and Ghll are degenerates, and even
mattolds. Tolstoi, Wagner and Swinburne
may be mad or degenerate, but lit addi
tion to the nualltlet, Ju."t namod, mid which
oelotig to the ordinary Insane, they have
gi-utu-; this is what Nordau hai too fia
qwntly forgotten. Degeneration, for one
wl . follows my theories, instead of de
stroying, fortifies the diagnosis which
proves them to be genlust s, and enlarges
lis rangi"; because only the mediocre have
jiot. ndlvh forms, for tho very reason
that thiy lack fecund originality, which is
the Ixit-ls of genius.
The man of genius is a man who does

was deserteil by hltn September 1. In Jnt
ten dnys after bar wedding the suit for
divorce was brought. Mrs. Kllcgood nl
li(?es that her husband fooled her, and
Induced her to marry hltn by representing
that he had money without limit In one of
the IradltiK bunks of the city, and that h
held a tespansllite position In a railroad
otllcp. All of this was fulse, says Mrs.
Another story, told by the attorneys for
Mr. Kilt good, who refue to divulge their
client's former name, but who claim she
Is rich and owns considerable property, Is
that Mr. KIIcrooiI is a member of one of
the most prominent families of Jopllh, Mo.,
but has fallen from grace somewhat. Por
two anys they were happy, ana on tne
third day he gave her a check for HOP.
Mrs. Kllegood Went lo the bank, presented
the check, and was told that there wete bo
funds to her lord and master's credit.
Somewhat astonished, she returned to her
home and rcpronched Klleuood of having
dtielved her. He only laughed, .the petl
tlon says, and thrust his hands in hW
pockets and temntketi:
".My dear, I haven't a cent In the world.
I was attracted by your beauty and mar
ried you for a purpose, that's all." .
With that, and a parting lauRh. Mr.
Kllegood left his wife's house, uad lius
never rt turned.
Mrs. Kllegood lotd her lawyets that at
one time she considered li-i"-elf wise, but
she was now willing to nunilt that she
knew nothing of tho was nt this wicked
world, rfhe also bay that hei spouse I

Wal i r .Mai shall, St. I,cml "I was In
New York n few weeks ago and while them
saw one of tho most interesting collections
of eiBns In the country. It l the property
of Captan Mike riant My. a veteran In the
ciRar ".fade, who has wrik"d years to gath
t up and perfect it. Alwnl six ear. ago
Hlon with other samples he received some
p"cullar ( igar from a Candy Hook pilot.
They attiaucd so much attmtlon that ho
iiMt'sii them in a case and begsn the col
li ctlon of a few others of odd appearance
to co with them. Later he ws interested
In the matter and labeled the cigars and
established n rnllr-fl,iti thnl ivm lln-llv-
wrltten tip extensively In the trade paper-,
and then oilier samples earns pouring lu
from every l&nA beneath the sun. Still
they eome and still his collection continues
to grow. It is the only one in New Vork,
and for thnt reason Is the more attractive
ir Valuable. The collection occupies the
space of three Inrge showcases In the cap
tain office on Pearl sti'et. There ai 1 1
Kars from Havana, lllndostnn. J'ntngonla,
China and scores of other places, together
with cigars made in this count ty inuny
years sgo, when the business was In Its in
fancy. H? recently added a collection that
he secured from the worM's fair at Chi
cago which adds very greatly to the value
ot the aggregation. Jt comprises cigars
from Borneo. Colombia. Jannn and Mexico.
one feature of the collection is the show
ing of cigarettes. The prettiest ones are
the rose leaf wrapped ctnarettes from F'.ntn
and they lie side by side with the coarse
tnnlEe-COVered rlirnsM that lln.ts n msni
a Imlrers in Mexico and South Ameilca.
The cigarettes from Greece resemble the
ones used in Turkey, and they lie with the
e.eht-for-a-i ent fellows from Japan. The
wrappings are as varied as the goods them
selves. It would be dllllcult to estimate the
value of the collection. Inasmuch us It Is
n t for sale, that miestlon gives no one
t-otible. Captain Flaherty has heard ot a
cilleellon similar to his In Germany, and
!i expects Jo secure It If the owner Is In
e lined to name a reasonable price."

of McKinley or any other man."
Tho News thinks that if Mr. New's state
ment that Harrison "would select neither
Heed nor McKinley ns the Itepubllcnn
candidate" Is Interpreted ns meaning that
the ox-president is opposed to both Reed
and McKinley, there can hardly be .-i
doubt that this declaration will have its
effect on the candidacy of both these men.
The situation, then, is this: ".Mr. Harrison
Is not a candidate for tho nomination, and

Interest of any other candidate. He would
not ndvle the nomination of cither Mr.'
Heed or Mr. McKinley. He stands himself
Just precisely where ho stood. If the party
demands his services, it can have them."
