i WHEN HAWTHOHNE WAS SAD.
A a Insight Into tlie ICai-ly Career nf the
Famous American Uomanclst. 9
In the first decade after Hawthorne left
college he formed several plans of life, one
nf which was that of entering his uncle
Manning's counting house. In one of his
letters to me he spoke of this as a settled
purpose, but his repugnance to commercial
life was such that the plan was ultimately
abandoned, and he relapsed into the state
of partial inaction which so often results
from unsettled plans.
It is well known that soon after graduat
ing he prepared for the press a little vol
ume of tales entitled, 'Seven Tales of My
Native lind." The publisher who en
gaged to bring out the book was so dilatory
that at last Hawthorne, liecoming impa
tient a'ld dissatisfied with the excuses
given, peremptorily demanded the return
of the manuscript. The publisher, nroused
to a sense of his duty and ashamed of his
broken promises, apologized and offered to
proceed with the work at once, but Haw
thorne was inexorable, and thpugh, ns he
wrote mo at the time, he was conscious of
having been too harsh in his censures, he
would not recede, and he burned the man
uscript isi a mood half savage, half de
spairing As 1 expressed to him perhaps too
strongly my regret for this proceeding, he
did not, when Fanshawe was published,
confide to me the fart. Hearing, though,
of the publication, I procured a copy, and
subsequently mentioned it to Ilavv'thorne.
lie had tnea-time become dissatisfied with
the book, ani', he called in and destroyed
all the copies lie could reach. At his re
quest I bur ied my copy and we never al
luded to 1'anshawo aftcrwar '.. It was
at this time, I think, that he ecama ut
terly disheartened, and though conscious
of possessing more than ordinary literary
talent he almost abandoned all expecta
tion of success as an author.
In one of h;s letters to me, after relating
some of his disappointments, he compared
himself to one drifting helplessly toward a
cataract, and closed with these despairing
words, "I'm a doomed man, and over I
Happily the despondent mood was not
permanent, and he continued to write,
though subjected to frequent disappoint
ments. He was contributor for a little
while to a magazine published, 1 believe,
in New York. The compensation was
small, and even that the publisher pro
fessed his inability to pay; so Hawthorne
stopped his contributions and withdrew.
At the parting a characteristic incident
oecurreiL The editor begged for a mass of
manuscript in his possession, ns yet unpub
lished, and it was scornfully liestowed.
"Thus," wrote Hawthorne, "has this man,
who would be considered a Mifcenas, taken
from a penniless writer material incom
parably U tter than any his own brain can
supply." And he closed with a bitter male
diction upon the grasping editor.
He had the experience of being more
than once deceived by those who professed
to have tlie power and wish to befriend
him. A young man, with some means and
greater aspirations, commenced the publi
cation of a literary iu u -paper in Bo-ton
and ottered li.iut home the posit ion of co
editor. Another person, backed by a rich
lather, siipph.i.ted Il.jwthorne. who was
civilly bowed out, and the newspaper, af; r
a brief and sickly life, expired.
In the Hawthorne biography there ap
peared several old and carelessly written
letters of my own, answers to somo cf
Hawthorne's that were long since de
stroyed at his request.
These letters 1 should hardly have repro
duced except for the purpose of showing
that Hawthorne was at times quite de
spairing and in need of all the encourage
ment his friends could give. Horatio
Bridge in Harper's.
I sin;; Liquids at Meals.
A great deai of misapprehension is often
found to exist in the popular mind in re
gard to matters of eating and drinking;
the cause of this to some extent is to be
j traced to old time sayings, which have
come down to us in the form of a concen-
iraicu iiuusionoi sometxxiy s opinion upon
n subject of which he or sdie was woefully
ignorant. One Of these misapprehensions
to which we may refer is as to the injn
riousuess of taking fluid with meals. One
frequently hears it laid down as a maxim

mat. ii is o.iu iu uniia. Willi your meais,
it dilutes the gastric juice," By way cf
explanation we may remark that "it im
plies that the fluid taken is harmful."
Whence this sagacious postulate origi
nally came we cannot tell; it has quite the
ring about it of an inconsequent deduction
formed by a person whose presumption of
knowledge was only exceeded by a lament
able ignorance of the subject. Medical
men often find much difficulty in dealing
with these "museum specimens of anti
quated science, for even educated persons
are disposed to cling to the absurdities of
their youth. Medical Press.

Details in regard to the manner in which
meals were served during the Dark Ages do
not abound. It is only toward the Twelfth
century that we begin to have a little light
tin this interesting subject. When a meal
was ready iu the Thirteenth century the
guests of a castle, with the vassals, were
assembled to the sound of a horn, a method
of summoning that appears to have been
the privilege only of tbe greatest lords.
