"A pHiLADRUHtA Press correspondent
writes from London; "Apropos of Mr. Hen

I was talking I few days ago to a friend of

was made of Edward Everett Hale's bat
short story. 'Ah,' said the Englishman, 'I

"Mr. James Patw, the novelist, tells, us
that when he was a very young man, and
had very little experience, he was reading
on a coach box an account of some gigant
ic trees. One of them was described as
sound outside ; but within, for many teet
a mass of rottennes and decay. "If a boy
should climb up, bird-nesting, into the fork
of it, tliougnt I, he might go down feet
first, and never be heard of again. Then,"
he adds, "it struck me what an appropri
ate end it would be for a bad character of
a novel. Before I had left the coach-box, I
had thought out "Lost Sir Massingbcrd."
Such a process lasted for a shorter time
with Mr. Payn than with - the majority of
novelists; with many the little seed might
have germinated for years before it brought
forth fruit. Yet Mr. Payn is remarkable

It constantly happens that authors them

public fail to appreciate. This waa cer
tainly the case with the late Lord Lytton.
In one of his letters to Lady Blessington,
he says: "I have always found one i
never so successful as when one is least san
guine. I felt in the deepest despondency
about 'Pompeii' and 'Eugene Aram,' and
waa certain, nay, most presumptuous about
Devereux,' which is the least generally

way, George Eliot was far more anxious to
be known as the author of "Tbe Spanish
Gipsy" than ' "Adam Bede." It is quite
natural that authors who make composition
& study, should pride themselves on those
books which have cost them most pains and
trouble. 1 But these books are not always
their masterpieces.' The comic actor who

A correspondent of the New York Ob
server rises to defend Dr. Johnson trom the
charge of being an incomgi ble bore : "An
admirer of Dr. Johnson respectfully begs
leave to protest against the severe strictures
which you have lately passed on the per
sonal character of the father of our lang
uage, especially as your words are read by
many who may never look into any of Dr.
Johnson's own works, or into the life. 'A

generosity and benevolence were not less
celebrated than were his irascible temper
and roirgh address.' Bora in a humble sta

Correction of a refined education, such de
fects in his ordinary bearing might well be
lamented and forgivon, particularly if you
will considor Dr. Johnson's free liberality
of pen and purse, his readiness to atone
pibllcly for every harsh or unjust word
sj wkon to any individual, and the softening
of his disposition in old a:e. In the times
in' which he lived, religious and political
intolerance were not peculiar to Dr. John

wire in that day remarkable, and his pros
euce acted as a check on the profanity then
"Lord Eqrekont onco invited Turner to
stay a week at Petwotth and paint two pic
turcs for him of some favorite bits of
scenery on the estate. On the first morn
ing of his visit Lord Egremont asked Tur

great painter replied ho would go fishing
The next morning at breakfast Lord E
inquired again what it would please Mr.Tur

go fishing again. On the third morning

MORNING, SEPTEMBER 18,
un the lourth morning Lord E, unable
to conceal his anxiety, said: "Well, Mr.
Turner, I am only too glad for you to enjoy.
yourself; but you are talking of going away
to-morrow, and I felt anxious about the
pictures." "Qimo up stairs to my room,"
said Turner, "and set your mind at rest.'
Nothing could exceed the surprise and de
ight of Lord Egremont when Turner intro
duced him to two exquisit pictures painted
as he had desired. The great man had
risen each morning with the sun, and iMifore
