The Macmlllan company are publish

Nietzsche, which have never before
been put into English.

the non-heredity of acquired charac
teristics, becomes by virtue of his own
account of himself and of Dr. Tille's
lucid introduction of his works, one of
the most curious and interesting fig
ures in modern thought.
The thing for which Nietzsche really
stands is the application of a physio
logical rather than a psychological
test to man and civilization. U.ntil re
cently scientists have practically con
ceded that the evolution of man as
it goes on at present is not a contin
uous process with his evolution in the
past. In the animal world without
man "higher" means with more phys
ical strength, more differentiated,
more prolific, more able to cope with
natural enemies. If the word "higher"
were used of man in the same way,
the savage would be a higher type
than the civilized man. As applied to
man "higher" implies social depen
dence, mildness and mentality. Dar
win, Wallace, Spencer, Huxley, have
all practically concurred in the view
stated by Prof. Fiske in "the Destiny
of Man" when he says, "When human
ity began to be evolved an entirely
new chapter in the history of the uni
verse was opened. Henceforth the life
of the nascent soul came to be first
In importance, and the bodily life be
came subordinated to it. Henceforth
it appeared that the process of zoolog
ical change had come to an end, and
the process of psychological change
was to take its place "
It is only in the last few years that
certain thinkers have perceived ,the
duality of standard imposed upon the
process of evolution by this conces
sion to that development of man
which Is not physical, and have fret
ted themselves concerning it, propos
ing at last, with sublime audacity, to
unify the evolutionary process 'by
throwing overboard as valueless all
the results of evolution in the last few
thousand years, since, in short, psy
chological differentiation began to be
of importance. Their idea is to meas
ure man. his civilization, his art, but
above all his religton, by their effect
on his species, by the standard of
Nietzsche is the foremost representa
tive of this school of thought In Eu
rope. He was professor at Bale until
he went insane in 1889, and it is impos
sible not to infer that his philosophy
is merely the result of a life of disease,
the sufferer's method of flinging his
gauntlet in the face of destiny.
An aristocrat, a philosopher, a poet, a
brilliant and disdainful thinker, the
first volume of his works as trans
lated was the last to be written by
him, and the trail of his disease will
be everywhere visible in it to those
conversant with mental maladies.
"The Case of Wagrner" Is a disjointed,
epigrammatic, inconsistent arraign
ment of the great musician which is
well worth reading, but which con
vinces the reader chiefly of the author's
He vituperates through 'JJJjSGrS&ZQs
of unproved assertions to-^jjJPeffect
that Wagner is a decadent;^ h£, is al

higher values, perhaps still s&n? by the
populace and woman, the horizon of
the ideal for all who are naturally my
opic For philosophers, however, It is
like every other horizon, a mere mis
apprehension, a sort of door-closing of
the region where their world only com
mences." Wagner, he claims, ruins the
health of those who listen to him. The
proof lies in the fact that he himself
does not breathe easily when listening
to Wagner, and is not exhilerated as
he is by dance music, or the operas
of Bizet. He confesses that when he
was younger he regarded Wagner's
music as the expression of a powerful
superabundance of nature. In the
same way he regarded the philosophi
cal pessimist of the nineteenth cen
tury as the symptom of a "triumphal
fulness of life." "I took tragical per
ception for the choicest luxury of our
civilization, as its most precious, most
noble, most dangerous mode of squan
dering, but always.on the ground of its
superabundance, as its permitted lux
ury." In other words, in the days of
his own strength and vigor he per
ceived what was really true, that it is
only the great productive eras, the as
cending eras of history, in which
freaks abound. Pessimism is one of
the direct products of vitality. But,
as he grew older, become broken in
health, jaded, fatigued, and began to
decline toward madness, the things
which had previously seemed to him
symptoms of health and vigor began
to seem marks of impoverishment and
decay, and he conceived the splendidly
insolent idea of arraigning human civ
ilization in the stead of himself, and
accusing religion of all the evils which
are especially attendant on the lack
of it. Few men have ever planned or
carried out so brilliant and so hopeless
a campaign, but in the valley of hu
miliation to which he has gone down
intellectually, there can enter no
thought of satisfaction at his unique
revenge upon the world.
If it were worth while to arraign his
inconsistencies, it wouKl be interesting
to note what he says of Bizet's music
in the light of the fact that his tests of
art are supposed to be physical and
not psychical. He finds that melody
makes the spirit free, that it gives
wings to thought, and makes of the
philosopher a better philosopher." The
grey heaven of obstruction thrilled as
it were, by lightnings; the light strong
enough for all the filigree of things;
the great problems ready to be
grasped; the universe surveyed as from
a mountain summit. Answers fall into
my lap unexpectedly; a little hail
shower of ice and wisdom, of solved
problems, Bizet makes me productive.
All that is good makes me productive.
I have no other gratitude, nor have I
any other proof of what is good."— ln
other words, the amount of intellectual
stimulus a thing affords is the supreme
test of its value — a contention which
wculd come more gracefully from one
who conceived of psychological evolu
tion as the matter of chief importance.
Besides his arraignment of Wagner the
volume under consideration contains
"The Twilight of the Idols," a number
of iconoclastic papers and paragraphs
in which the author of Soc
rates and all the '"'great wise men" as
"declining types/ scoffs at "Reason in
Philosophy;" arraigns Christian mor
ality as r.nti-natural; finds the German
nation unworthy of consideration; set
tles Renan, Seint Beuve, the Imitatio
Christi, George Eliot, George Sand, Car
lyle, Emerson, Spencer, and the labor
question in a paragraph apiece.
The Jast essay in the book is entitled
"The Anti Christ; an essay towards a
criticism of Christianity," and is a very
curious piece of literature. The author
posits a "real" world which is apparent
ly a material one, though he is by no
means a consistent materialist. Every
thing which differs from this "real"
world of his is not only false but cor
rupt. Nietzsche alone possesses the
touch-stone of reality. "Pure spirit is
pure lie." "In Christianity neither
morality nor .religion is in contact with
any point of actuality." "Christianity,
a form of mortal hostility to reality
which has not hitherto been sur
passed." God is a decadent, Christ is
a symbolist, screams this strange phil
osopher who is singularly unphiloso
phic, who uses the language of Billings
gate, and regards invective as argu
ment. "I am" from Jehovah is base
imposition. "I am" from Nietzsche is
proper self-assertion, is the upshot of
some hundred pages of raving. Chris
tianity is antimatural in that it would
take the world from the strong and
give it to the weak. The world was
meant for the few, of whom the writer
is chief. Sympathy is a mortally dan
gerous disease. To be sound is to be
pitiless. To be pitiless is to be noble.
The fact that the consensus of human
opinion is on the other side is only one
argument the more in the mind of
this man for his own point of view, for
the vulgar are habitually in error and
to be against them is almost a proof
THE SaINT PAUL GLOBE: SUNDAT, ytTLt 19, 18901
of right-thinking. The Christian
values are false because they are false
to him; and because they are false to
him, "Christianity Js the one immortal
blemish of mankind."
All this is very interesting, but it 1b
not philosophy. That a man bo evi
dently Buffering from the sense of ex
aggregated self-importance which is
preliminary to paresis should b« re
garded as a "European event" and
should give rise to an Independent
school of thought upon the continent
is somewhat incredible and could hard
ly occur in an age less avid of some
new thing than our own. Hlb neces
sarily limited vogue is the only excuse
for taking him seriously, and it is not
on the whole a valid excuse. Wher
ever the future of philosophy lies, it is
not In the hands of this man. At a
venture one might guess that he who
shall show that even as evolution
ceased to be physical and became
psychological, so it also has ceased to
be psjichelo^ical and become spiri
tual Is the coming philosopher.
His task will be less impossible than
that of those who would overthrow all
that evolution has accomplished with
the race in the last few thousand years.

A short time ago Prof. Flinders Petrie dis
covered at Thebes a granite tablet containing
the first known Egyptian mention of the
people of Israel. It was erected by Meren
ptah, whose portrait bust was recovered at
the same time. Prof. Petrie has written for
the August Century a full account of the
finding of the tablet and of the character
and reign of Merenptah. This king has been
supposed by scholars' to be the Pharaoh who
released the children of Israel from the bon
dage imposed by his father, Rameses 11., but
this tablet records that he himself conquered

The scene shifts from one part of the West

are considered; and the result is an eminently
readable and lively narrative.
Some time ago Messrs. Stone & Kimball
announced the publication of a book on Ja

much delay in the Issue of these two vol

The current Issue of "Cosmopolis" is an
especially brilliant number. The fiction in
particular is above the level even of the in
ternational review's work . The opening arti
cle in the English section, "Chad Lodge,"
by I. Zangwill, is a powerful study of the
mind of a young and talented Jew who has
drifted away from the faith of his fathers,
but found no resting place elsewhere. It Is
in the form of a reverie, the thoughts which
pass through the young man's mind as he
returns to his Venetian home from Vienna
to find his family celebrating the feast of
the Passover, and silently takes his glace
among them while his father chants the
Chaldaic recitative, which marks the con
clusion of the ceremony, and which gives
with its Interlined atrophies a curious effect
of artistic unity to the son's musings. As
a brief survey of the possibilities of spiritual
negation it has never been equalled, and as
a piece of literature Zangwill has done noth
ing better. The story in the French section
is by Bourget; and will be of especial inter
est to American readei-s, for it is a subtle
study of the household of a self-made New
York millionaire, one of the type who amuses
himself by endowing universities while his
wife seeks . her entertainment in conquerng
the society of European capitals.

Pork gained 2Hc. Wheat for a mlnuU or

unwilling crowd. September opened un
changed at from 57% cto 87%@67%0, and
worked down to 66% cm the first half-hour of
the session. The week's shipments of wheat
and flour from both coasts were equal to
2,963,000 bu, compared with 2,167,000 bu on
the week before. The Minneapolis and Du
luth receipts were comparatively lignt For
the first time since last year's crop got fair
ly under movement, the receipts for the day
were smaller than for the light crop of the
last year. Export clearances from Atlantic
ports reported today are equal in wheat and
flour to 370,000 bu. Some export business
was done when the price of September
dropped to 66% c, and under, as it did on
several occasions. The last was near the
close of the market, and 56% c was bid at the
close. Heavy rains in the corn belt caused
the bulls in corn to tumble over each other
in their haste to unload. September opened
YtC lower at 27% c, and declined all day, with
only fractional rallies on small purchases by
shorts, closing at 27c, the lowest price of the
day. Oats were firm early. September
opened %c at 17% c, and advanced to 17%@
18c, Later in the session, longs were free
sellers, prices receding to the lowest point
of the day, September being offered at 17VAc
at the close. Still lower prices than before
were recorded for provisions, during today's
session, but the changes quoted at the clifce
were very little under the final prices of the
day before. Estimated receipts for Monday:

Barrett & Zimmerman's Report— During the
past week the general tone of trade has been |
quiet, but sales have been as large as could I
be expected at this time of the year. Farm i
stock is most in demand at $60 to $90 Re- !
ceipts and sales of fair to good drafters run
about even at $75 to $140 a head. Common I
drivers and general purpose horses sell
around $45 to $75, while there is a fair In
quiry for drivers with some speed and
quality, which bring from $100 to $250 each
Extra choice individuals sell above quotations
while coarse and inferior stock sells very
low. Prices promise to hold their own this
coming week on all classes of horses, with
the indications pointing to a slight advance
on first-class farm stock. Representative

NEW YORK STOCKS.
Trading- Small in Volume and West
NEW YORK, July 18.— The stock market
was a purely professional affair today. The
tone was weak and feverish, and after mo
mentary spurts at the opening, and at the
end of the first hour, prices steadily receded
to the close. London was not a factor to
»ny appreciable extent, and the feeble ral
lies were entirely due to covering of shorts'.
The volume of business was moderate, with
Sugar and St Paul leading in point of ac
tivity. The opening was strong and frac
tionally higher, with the international shares
responding indifferently to improvement in
the London quotations. A selling movement
soon developed, and the active stocks sold
off. Bt. Paul and the industrials were also
put under pressure by the traders. A light
rally occurred before noon, which was quick
ly followed by renewed bear activity, and a
decline ensued, which continued to the close
The market left off weak at the lowest
prices, showing declines of %g2 per cent, "."„
The total sales of stocks today were lIsfTSS
shares, including the following: Tobacco
8,500; Atchison, 4,300; Sugar, 22,200; Burling
ton, 9,700; Chicago Gas, 4,800; Louisville L
Nashville, 6,700; Missouri Pacific, 4,200; Roc*
Island, 4,000; St. Paul, 15,300.
