The Sunday boycott is a manifest
failure already, and the religious ser
vices in the fair grounds will go far
to subline the bitter spirit in winch
it originated. It would not be
strange if before the summer was
over the strictest of religious people
visiting Chicago should find them
selves drawn Sundav afternoon to the
beautiful surroundings and soothing
influences of Jackson park as the
most congenial and elevating way of
passing the time, especially if the
gates shall be open at half the regu
lar price of admission, as thev are
likelv to be. It will utwiucstiouahlv
do them good, and not the least of
t lie benetits will be a change in their
ideas of the proper way of observing
the Christian Sebbath in these mod
ern days. Out of this controversy
and the triumph of rational ideas ma'v
come a permanent softening of the
Sabbatarian spirit which has been the
persistent heritage of the narrow
and intense puritanism that ignored
the teachings of primitive Christian
ity and resorted to those of the
scribes and pharisees.
Worthingtnn's Illustrated Maga
zine for July begins the second vol
ume of a periodical that has been ex
ceptionally fortunate and successful.
Fach number has steadily gained in
attractiveness anil value, and this
atest issue, while very bright and
entertaining for summer reading, has
still sufficient solidity to recommend
it to readers in search of the practi
cal and useful, and to those who most
enjoy significant thought and en
larged views expressed in graceful
and polished sentences.
Scribncr's Magazine for July con
tains a striking article in the Men's
Occupations series by W. Clark Rus
sell (the writer of sea tales) on "The
Life of the Merchant Sailor," giving
a graphic account of forecastle life in
a modern sailing vessel, showing
how little it has changed since the
old days when Dana wrote his "Two
Years licfore the Mast." The abund
ant illustrations are by Frank IJran
gwyn, an English marine artist,
whose work is new to American mag
azines. The number abounds in con
tributions profusely and attractively
'Larry" is a new book by Miss
Amanda M. Douglass, which ap
peared (for the most part) in the
Youth's Companion, being the story
to which was awarded the munificent
prize of f2.0(i). In the limit fixed
by the publishers of the Companion
a few chapters had to be omitted;
but in the complete volume just pub
lished by Lee & Shepard, these are
restored, giving the story a rounded
fullness. It is not especially a juve
nile novel, but is equally interesting
to mature readers. Larry, or Law
rence, is a line character and appeals
to the hearts of all.
With the third part of "Omega,"
the work of tin; French astronomer
Flammarion, which appears in the
Cosmopolitan for July, the reader is
able to grasp something of the great
purpose of the author. "Omega" is
declared by thoae who have read the
entire work tobe one of the most re
markable writings of the century.
While pretending to be a novel it is
a work having a deeply philosophical
purpose, as is more fully developed
in latter chapters. It is something
that no fairly intelligent person can
afford not to read, and is surely des
tined to become a classic.
The current number of the Engi
neering Magazine (New York) is even
more profusely illustrated with en
gravings of a high order than is usual
in this handsomely gotten up publi
cation. Thirty pages are dev jted to
the sculptors of the World's fair, in
troducing views ol some oi the most
notable, pieces of sculpture produced
in the: ornamentation of the fair
buildings, together with portraits of
the sculptors. Another liberally ill
ustrated paper relates to the impor
tant industry oi coke manufacture in
the United States. A paper by a
leading New York architect on me
chanical aids to building is also ill
ustrated to a liberal degree. Other
leading articles in this number re
late to "The Financial Situation in
America," "Limits of the Natural
Gas Supply," "Weak Points in Trade
Unionism," "Steam Locomotion on
Common Roads," "The Safety Car
Coupler Problem," "The Develop
ment of the Modern Steam Pump,"

The Review of Reviews for the
month of June is a number which
nobody who intends to go to the
World's fa r at any time can well af
ford to bo without. However at
tractive the other departments may
be, it will be true of this World's
fair, as it .as of the Centennial in
1876, that 1 he great majority of the
visitors wi.l derive more pleasure
from the pictures in the Art depart
ment than from anything else. The
Review of Reviews sent as its special
representative to Chicago, in May,
Ernest Knaufft, a well-known art
teacher of New York, who is also a
writer upon art subjects, and who is
known throughout the country as the
very successful and sympathetic di
rector oi th'3 art studies at Chautau
qua from si mmer to summer. Mr.
KnaufTt has prepared for the Review
oi reviews in extended and discrim
inating arthle, telling in a straight
forward wav what are the merits ami
striking fea ures of each portion of
the art exhibit, and his article is il
lustrated with outline pen sketches
intended as memoranda of the prin
cipal pictures. The article serves as
an excellent general guide to the art
department and as an auxiliary to
the more formal catalogue which
gives the na lies and numbers of 1he
How a ma Tiage proposal is made
and how it is worded always arouses
the interest of girls, and to them the
charming revelation made in "The
Story of Five Proposals." which is
told with delightful frankness by a
western society girl, in 'the July La

the arti.-t, adds to the article
with five of l is eijuisite illustrations,
.fust how to arrange a tennis tourna
ment is also :m excellent article, as
timely as it is authoratative, since it
is written by Mabel Esmonde Cahill,
the champion lady tennis player of
the United States. A full page, very
well done, is that giving descriptions
of various ways of "Entertaining in
the Country." Mrs. Ella Wheeler
Wilcox asks and answers "Can a
Woman Refot m a Man?'' A most
beautiful pag of periodical illustra
tions is Nancy Mann Waddle's article
on the cultivi.tioii of the orchid
"A Flower of the Air," as it is
quaintly desig nated. A page of bi
ography presints sketches, with por
traits, of -Rosa Nouchette Carey"
and of "The Daughter of Charles
Dickens." Anna Robertson Brown
gives the first paper, in a series of
articles on "The tJirl Who (Joes to
College." Mr. I!ok, the editor, dis
courses wit h forcible directness, up
on the perplexing question of corpo
ral piinisemcnt for children, writing
from the boy's point of view. "Mr.
lieechcr's Unp -inted Words." as re
ported by his private stenographer,
are full of nob e thought ami inspir
ation. Good-fiction is a tonic, and
the charming slory of Dennis
O'Rourke, by Lucy Dcrbv, with its
clever illustrations, will prove one of
the best. Mr. Ho wells' storv, "Hie
Coast of Hohenia," grows in interest
and charm :is it proceeds. A
page of illustrations from original de
signs, entitled "Dressing Without
the Corset," by May Root Kern, will
be read with profit, as will Mrs. Mal
lon's "The Ideal Summer Blouse"'
and "Odds and Ends of a Wardrobe."
Palmer Cox has his inimitable
"Brownies"' this month climbing the
pyramids of Egypt, while John Ken
drick Bangs contributes one of his
delightful poems. The editors all
have something bright to say in this
Julv number, which, with its attrac
tive summer nover, specially de
signed by Frank O. Small, and its ad
mirable table of contents, is worth
many times its price of 10 cents.
Published by t'le Curtis Publishing
Company, of Philadelphia, for 10
cents per number and $1 per year.
The first thing that confronts us
in McClure's Magazine for July is
the latest portrait of the ever young
and ever charming young autocrat.
Dr. Oliver Wendell ilolmes. On the
next page you can begin An After
noon with Olive- Wendell Holmes, in
the company of Dr. Edward Everett
Hale. Such an ifternoon! You are
never likely to forget it. It isn't
every day that i' is our privilege to
listen to the ron versation of two
such masters of wit, wisdom and
eloquence. Thearticleis beautifully
illustrated, wit i drawings of Dr.
Holmes' birthplace in Cambridge;
the house wher t he studied medi
cine in Paris; his Beacon street resi
dence in Boston; his summer place
at Beverly Farun; Dr. Holmes occu
pying his favorite seat at Beverly; a
bay window in the poet's study, over
looking the Charles river; "Dorothy
Q.'s" house in Quincy, Mass.; and a
fine portrait of the irresistible "Dor
othy Q." herself. Thousands will be
glad to see a portrait of this famous
gentlewoman of the la3t century.
The article is packed with illustra
tions, one of the best of which is that
of Dr. Hale and Dr. Holmes in the
latter's study. 1 hen there is one of
the best if not the very best Bal
lads of the Sea Hat Rudjard Kipling
everwrote. Yon feel the salt spray
in your face, and the north winds in
your ears, as you read it. Its re
frain is as haunting and thought
compelling as the refrain of
Mr. Kipling's other metrical
masterpiece, "Dai-ny Deever."
The Race to the North Pole is the
second of The Edge of the Future
series. The first part is by Hugh
Robert Mill, D. S s., and in "it he
shows the difficulties which the ad
venturous explorer has to contend
with. Accompanying this article is
a fine portrait of Fridtjof Nansen,
whose expedition started last week.
There is also a pen picture of the
man, which will make every reader
his friend; and well wisher. The
Jackson expedition, Mr. Mill tells us,
will start out in July or about the
1st of August. Lieut. Peary's ex
pedition, Mr. Cleveland Moffett
writes, will sail this month. Col.
W. H. Gilder outlines his plans for
reaching the north magnetic plc in
the closing chapter of The Race to
the North Pole, and an absorb
ingly interesting article it is.
Perhaps the most interesting thing
in this number of McClure's Maga
zine is; On the Track of the Review
er; a true story of revenge, con
nected with the first publication of
"Jane Eyre." It is by Dr. William
Wright, who was a pupil of the Rev.
David McKec, in Ireland, when
"Jane Eyre" was first published; and
Mr. McKee was the best friend of the
Brontes and the first to predict the
success of the famous novel. It is a
wonderful chapter, this one on old
Hugh Brote, Charlotte's uncle, seek
ing the reviewer of "The Quarterly,"
who had said that the author of
"Jane Eyre" must be a bad woman.
Very wonderful, dramatic, and pa
thetic it is and worthy the pen of
Dickens and a chapter of the best of
his books. Hugh Bront's search
through the length anil breadth of
London for the traducer of his niece,
whom he had sworn to kill on sight
with a shillelagh, fashioned for the
express purpose, is as touching as
Dan'l Pcggoty's search for Little Em"
ly and as a futile. It is enriched by
a portrait of Charlotte Bronte. There
arc t wo capital short stories besides
Hardy's in this number: one. In the
Name of the Law. by Stanley J.
Weyman, a dramatic, forceful storv
of France during the red days of ".:!;
the other. The Lost Years, a strange
story of a man who lived live years in
wickedness in the west "without
knowledge of them, is by Lizzie liver
NcfT, a clear-cut. direct writer.
The announcement of the publishers
of McClure's Magazine tells us that
the August number will contain a
series of papers giving the dramatic,
and hitherto unknown, history of
the Bronte family in Ireland. The
high tone ami low price of McClure's
Magazine are bounn to make of it a
household word and companion. The
price 15 cents a copy, or $l.f0 a
year is within the reach of all who
care for good literature; and even the
poorest reader should remember that
the head requires food as well as the
stomach. McClure's Magazine is is

The AVrong Line.
It was tlu? semimoiithlv pay day in the
postoflice department in Vashington, and.
as usual, the long line of clerks and other
employees stretched down the corridor from
the office of the disbursing clerk. An eager
ofiice seeker, who rushed up from the rail
way station, bag iu hand, in his haste to see
Postmaster General Uisscll, seeing the long
line of people standing in the corridor, fell
in at the end of it. An impatient excla
mation from him drew the attention of the
clerk standing just in front of him, who,
seeing that he was n stranger, asked, "Do
you want to hoc the disbursing clerk?"
"No," said the ofiice seeker, "I want to see
the postmaster general." "Well," said the
clerk, "we are all waiting to get our money
from the disbursing clerk. We are clerks
in the department." "Heavens!" said the
stranger, "I thought you were nil ofiice
seekers," and he promptly made a break
for the postmaster general's room. Ex

no idea he hud the elements of a public
speaker in him. He rose, of course, from
the ranks, but was unusually terse and epi
graninuitic throughout. When called upon
to respond to the toast 'Our Guest' he
apologized for his lacking in parts by say
ing, 'I am more fitted for the scaffold than
for public speaking.' We agreed with him
literally before he resumed his seat." Xew

Count Camillo Pecci, the pope's nephew,

And trove them into his rhyme.

Was the sweetest for him to hear.

A Story A boat General Marfan.
Three men were telling war stories yes
Jbrday. whan one of them related an in cl
ient of General John Morgan's career that
has probably never been in print before.
"Morgan was regarded by the Union sol
diers as a holy terror," said one of the fa
mous cavalry leader's men, "and stories
had been spread among them reciting how
he shot down his captives and gave mercy
to none. On the contrary, he was kind
hearted, us those who knew hira can attest,
ne was fond of a joke, though. On one of
our raids we captured about 25 Union men
near Murfreeslxro, Tenn. Thoy expected
nothing else than to lie shot down after the
general had first eaten a good meal. They
began to talk about it so excitedly that
some one reported the matter to General
"Walking from his tent he ordered the
prisoners to be drawn up in line. Then
mount ing his horse he rode to the center of
the small column and said to them that
they must be acquainted with his methods
of getting rid of prisoners, and he personal
ly regretted that such a fine looking body
of men had fallen into the hands of a man
who, it was known to them ail, sacrificed
human life as though he were shooting
down a fatted calf.
"One little Dutchman at the head of the
line grew weaker and weaker us the gener
al's speech wore on until he fmally burst
into tears, exclaiming:
" 'Oh, for Gotfs sake, vot vill mine fam
"The general's heart was touched. Rid
ing up to the little Dutchman, he placed
his hand on his head and said:
" 'Why, God bless you, my man, I would
not harm a hair of your head for my life.
You were all so scared on account of the
bad repute in which you held me that I
thought I would play a practical joke on
you.' " Louisville Courier-Journal.
