Mr. Bban F. Pullock complain that
literary criticism in becoming namby
pamby. "Contdderftteness" 1 the
prevailing fashion In It. One English
Journul, noted for Its trenchant re
views of books, vat rebuked for lt
Jiarshnoss the oilier day by brother
editor, who innocently observed that
the publishers would soon cease send
ing volumes for notice. If nicer thing
were not said about them. Critics
rcnt te "considerate." This Is a varl
ant of the old. phrase to the effort hat
they must ba "constructive." Honest
!y Interpreted, that meant that the au
thor must be coddled, not told of his
faults; and that the public must be
fed on suear-plums. not warned of
impure or indigestible food. Conplder
teness, as Mr. Pullock remarks. Is a
most excellent thing. We ought all
to fee as kind as we can. Hut there
are higher virtues, sterner obliga
tions. One of them Is to be sincere.
And If a critic feels that he is act
Tor the defense of the truth, and has
a literary standard to maintain, in
stead of merely making himself a bait
for advertisements, he will often, dis
cover that the truest kindness la to
he severe. The older and more sav
age criticism may have sometimes
been unfair, but at any rate It wa
never insipid or dull. This, says the
New York Post, cannot be Bald of th
new style of "considerate" criticism.
It may create new geniuses every
week, out of the moat unpromising
material, and may note the appear
once of 20 masterpieces lu a single
publishing season, but it certainly
does cloy one- It makes many of ui
look back, with Mr. Bullock, "longing
ly" to the old "ramping days of Hen
ley," the "roaring Nineties," when
"the artists of the rapier and th
bludgeon had their way."
The common custom of that rar'
of the world which calls Itself civil
ized Is to seclude lU choicest art prod
ucta In museums and galleries, whert
they are seen only by the small pro
portion of people willing to go out
of their way and to spend time and
money in visiting them. Japan and
some other countries, which, accord
Sng to prevailing Anglo-Saxon Ideas,
have not yet fully emerged from
state of barbarism, have made art
part of the common life, so that even
the humblest citizen Is familiar with
beautiful handwork. It has occurred
to some leaders of thought in Den
mark that acquaintance with artistic
achievements 6hould belong to the
general education, and to that end
a plan Is beiDg developed for display
ing the work of Danish railroad sta
tions. If the scheme materialize It
will be Interesting to watch results.
At least the public will learn to know
what artists are doing, and if It is
really true that art, hung on the walls.
is educative and uplifting, then peo
. pie will derive a benefit they do not
get from museums.

cussed at the meeting of the county

by Fred S, Jackson, attorney general,
to talk about law enforcement. Fifty
three of them came, and a dozen or
so sent deputies.
The meetings are being held ln the
supreme court room and everything
was secret. There was a guard at
the door, all the ventilators and win
dows were closed and every man who
went Into the room was' Subjected
to a rigid examination.
This conference grew out of the
action of the attorneys for the brew
ery companies w ho held meetings, aud
each one decided to take tip a cer
tain line of legal proceodure to bother
the state officers. That looked like
a good scheme to the attorney general
who decided that it would keep a
waole lot of corporation, attorneys
busy if each county attorney started
some sort of move against the law
breakers. That la what this meeting
Is for. Some of tho county attorneys
will begin work on criminal proceed
ings, others will have Injunction, oth
ers quo warranto and others will have
soniA other kind of actions aealns
the lawbreakers, and nil will be boom
ing at the same time.
Not all the attorneys will be given
assignments. Some of them will de
vote their time to the prohibitory
law, others to trusts. The attorneys

breakers. The meeting was to get at the b. st
plans for proceeding. Every feature
