NOT MUCH MONEY IN POETii
Prices Pad to Writers Have Not
Greatly Advanced With Its In.
In this day of revival of poetry there
may be a natural curiosity to know,
whether prices for poetry have gone I
up in proportion to the apparent pop
ularity. I am afraid not, remarks a .
writer in the Buffalo Express. Masters
did not get a cent for the magazine
llblicati.pn of the Spoon river poems,
but he will get a few hundPdti dollars' 1
royalty from the book, and since its
puccess I understand lie has been paid
as much as $100 for a single poem by a
a New York weekly. The usual price
Is $1 a line, or $25 for a very short
poem. And the "Spoon River Anthol
ogy" is the most talked about book in
America today, either poetry or fiction. e
The London Times paid Kipling $500 i
for the "Recessional," and the same
for other poems at various times.
Walt Mason apparently is making
more money out of poetry than any
other man in America today. Ile
writes n poem every day in the year
for a newspaper syndicate, and in a
recent ihterview he says he is paid
$12 each on a yearly contract, which
Mr. Howells in the Editor's Easy Chair
figures out to b $3,578 or thereabouts 1
a year. Mason says the most lie ever !
made in one month is $875.
It was Moore and Byron who got I
the really big prices for poetry, in r
the days when the public gave the hon.
ers to long, storyliko volumes, such as
"Lalla Rookh," for which Moore re
ceived 3,000 guineas, or about $15,000.
Tennyson was, said to have been paid
$20,000 a year by loxon for his poetic
output, and James Whitcomb Itiley
was offered $10,000 a year for his. The I
New York Ledger paid Longfellow 1
$5,000 for "The Hanging of the Crane." I
TELLS ADVENTURE IN RHYME
English Airman Drops into Poetry in
Describing Perilous Trip Over
In place of the colorless account of
an aerial voyage by one of the many
cheery British pilots, the Times of
London publishes the following with
tihe suggestion that cultivation of the
muse may be inspired by one's prox
imity to higher things.
We quote a specimen of the pilot's
"The (lay was fino and the air was
still, and everything went well until
the Archlibalds began to flash, and
(leafen me with noisome crash. I hid
ry head, I stopped my ears in vain
attempts to calm my-fears; I whistled
every tie I knew, and tried to think
it wasn't true: Then came a pause
we'd passed the zone; in fear I fin
gered every bone.
"Then lo! a smile o'erspread my
face, for every bo.. was in its place.
So things went on; wo ran our course,
and turned for home no whit the
worse, until three IIunlets on our stern
constrained us, like the worm, to turn.
Then bullets whizzed and bullets flew
(as bullets very often do), while pilots
I bowed their brilliant nerve with hawk
ike swoop and 'orrid swerve."
Japanese Cotton Industry.
The export of cotton piece goods
from Japan has greatly increased
since the war, according to the British
consul at Osaka. The mills are re- -
ported to have made a bilg pr'oflt in the
saie of shirtings and (drills. From May,
'915, thle dinminutionl in stocks in
Shanghai created a (demand for' Japa
ilese goods, which inlcreased steadliiy
dlring the year. The mills, however,
ardopting the view that prices wold~ go)
ilighier, showed no anxiety to push
sales. This attitude appealrs to have
hleenl justified by r'ezuits. It is repor'tedl
that at tihe beginning of 1916~ the mills
.were in the comfortable position of
hiaving sold their output for six months
ahead, and~ there is a general impres
sion that the position thus gained in
the' cotton pice goods markets of
China and India is one which will be
