THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOUBNAI SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 8, 1907.
5 Books and Autkors Ellis Parker Butler, who became famous through his hilariously funny story of "Pigs Is Pigs," Is seen in a new light in a little book Just publish ed by the Century companv. It is call ed "The Onfessions of a Daddy." This new book of Ellis Parker But ler's has the human touch In it, and humor and pathos the humor and pathos of real life. Marthy and Hiram prided themselves on their care-free state, and, as they watched their neighbors' worries and burdens with their children, they thanked Provl dence that thev had none: "Well, little woman." I says, cheer ful like, "we don't need a lot of kids to bolster ud our love, do we?" She grave my hand a soft squeeze in reply. "And about that gown that silk gown." I savs erailv. "Have you decid ed what color it is to be yet? Won't you be fine? When I think how fine you'll look, I'm glad we haven't no children " Marthy didn't answer, and when I lifted up her face to kiss her, what d you think? She was cryin'. Afore the kid come, me and Marthy used to sit up nights tellln' each other how much we'd like it if it turned out to be a boy. I said everything that I - knowed that was nice about boys, and drawed on my imagination for what I didn t know, and Martny spoke tne same: so I convinced Marthy, thor- ough, that I would be terrible disap pointed if it wasn't a boy ana sne didn't leave me no doubts about her hankerin' for a baby of the male sect. Cq,urse we was both tryln' to square ourselves in case it should be a boy. Come to find out we was both of us tickled to death that it was a girl. Then came a little daughter, "98 per cent of sweetness," to revolution ize their theories and enrich their lives: And to think there was once a time when me and Marthy thought a kid was more bother than it was worth; there ain't no child, nowhere, that ain't worth more than everything else in the world all put together. No, sir: a babv has got more numan na ture in it than a man has, even. You take your big, rough hand to it, and v.ou chastise it. so tnat it screams out. and the next minute it takes time in between sobs to hug its soft little arms around your neck, and kiss you. Ain't that the reallest kind of human nature? Why, that's the kind that makes the world worth livin' in at all. I don't seem to recollect ever hearin' that heaven was set aside as a sort of place where married folk could hang about by twos. Them that has had experience knows that that would be a mighty poor kind of heaven one -without children in it. It's the child kind of human nature that sweetens up the world. The "give and take" kind take your spankin' when it comes, and give back love in return for it. It is all told In the first person, with a certain naive unconsciousness of the humor of the situations that makes them all the funnier. The Harpers are this week to pub lish an invaluable book for boys. The object of the book is twofold: it is to add keen zest to outdoor pastimes, and at the same time to be of great prac- Ucal value. , The book is profusely illustrated "with cuts and diagrams, explanatory of the directions in the text. Its title is Har per's Outdoor Book for Boys. It vastly widens the scope of outdoor THE BOWSER GARDEN. It Finally GItcs Up the Long Struggle for Existence. The first robin had scarcely made its appearance in the last days of March when Mr. Bowser returned home- from the office one evening bringing a pack age under his arm. When questioned as to its contents he replied: "I have been investing in garden seeds. Last spring I waited too long before planting anything, but I am not to be caught that way again." "But our back yard does not get sun enough," protested Mrs. Bowser, "and you know the soil is full of brickbats and mortar. I don't believe you will ever make anything grow there." "But I will show you to the contrary. I met a gardener today who gave me a few valuable tips. I'll have a garden this year to delight the heart. I not only need the exercise, but I have got tired of buying wilted vegetables at the grocery. I want my fresh vegetables, lettuce and tomatoes with the dew still on them. I want things to look home like around me. We are penned up here like a lot of savages, with no sentiment to appeal, and sometimes I feel that I am returning to barbarism. I want flowers and vegetables. I want to seem a part of them. I want my tenderness and goodness to come back." Mrs. Bowser didn't encourage or dis courage. She knew that Mr. Bowser would be opposed by cats, and boys, and tramps, and thunder storms, and late frosts, but at the same time she hoped that Providence might be on his side. As soon as the frost was out of the ground Mr. Bowser bought a spade and began work. Ht struck brickbats He struck cob ble stones. H struck clothes-pins and clothes-props. H struck wire clothes lines that had mysteriously disappeared years ago and had never been heard of Eince. Boys cheered him from back windows and threw old boots at him. Cats walk ed the fence on all sides of the yard and made stenographic notes of the proceed ings. Tramps came along the alley and etopped at the gate to ask him if he had murdered his wife and was preparing a grave. .nd it 'snowed, and it hailed, and it rained, and there were thunder storms. He got wet and he was covered with mud and he blistered his hands, but he hung to his job. He had set out to make a garden, and nothing could daunt him. On twenty different occasions while he was making the flower and vegetable beds Mrs. Bowser besought him to give up the work, but he in-v-riably struck his left palm with his right fist and replied: "Give up nothing! Mrs. Bowser, you don't know me yet. I am a determined man. 1 said I would make a garden, and a garden I will make, though the heavens fall." Mr. Bowser bought a shovel, a rake and a hoe. He bought a load of rich soil from a farmer to mingle with his brick bats. He bought guano from the florist. He bought compost from the livery stable. There were two hours' work for him every evening after din ner. Before the month of April had ended his back began to hump and his shoulders to lop, and he grew hollow eyed and his voice was hoarse, but when Mrs. Bowser begged him to give It up and go fishing he replied: "No fishing for fish. I have set out to accomplish something and I'll ac complish it or die In my tracks." 1 possibilities in the woods, the water, the air, the snow, or even In one's own yard. It tells how to make tents and boats, sleds and skees, fishing tackle; and a wide variety of other things. It gives directions for camping and pre paring an outfit, for fishing and pre paring tackle in short, for doing the many things that boys like to do and enjoy doing out of doors. The practical side of the book lies in the development of a boy's abilities and skill along lines of high mechanical and practical importance. In all, the book is an admirable gu(de, based upon the experiences of those who have done Just what they describe. It is written by Joseph H. Adams, and there are also contribu tions by Kirk Munroe, Tappan Adney, Captain Howard Patterson, Leroy Mil ton Yale, and others. "The True Patrick Henry," by George Morgan is no misnomer for this book on the greatest of American orators, who "gave the first impulse to the Revolution." Accurate, analytical, com prehensive, it is at the same time as readable as a spirited romance. Patrick Henry is re-created for us. He is made to live again, and the great scenes in which he took part become not merely real but vivid. His contemporaries stand out as actual men. We have throughout the atmosphere of the Revolution. As Mr. Morgan had ac cess to the accumulated Henry papers of a hundred years, including many unused vvirt originals, he has availed nimseir of the opportunity to nut much important new historical matter into the book. This volume is the latest one of the "True" Series published by the jL.ippincotis. When Sam Walter Fbss. the New England poet, was editing the Yankee Blade, he received contributions from a western writer named. John H. Whit- son of Kansas, which he was compell ed to return, with the apology that the work was "too good" for the readers of the Yankee Blade. That was nearly a score of years ago. Mr. Whitson has since taken up his residence in the east, and has met for the first time former editor Foss, now the efficient librarian of the large public library of the city of Somerville, Mass. Since coming east, Mr. Whitson has blossom ed out as a full-fledged novelist. For a while he wore western stories with good success, but the popularity of "The Rainbow Chasers" and "Justin Wingate, Ranchman" Is destined to be excelled by that of "The Castle of Doubt." his latest novel, published by Little, Brown & Co. Here is a modern romance with so ingenious a denoue ment that those novel readers who pride themselves in knowing from the beginning how a story is going to turn out have a surprise awaiting them. President Nicholas Murray Butler's book on "True and False Democracy, published by Macmillan, ig particular ly interesting and instructive In view of certain political problems now prom inently before the American people. Although carefully abstaining from any word that could be construed in a par tisan sense, everything that President Butler has to say. bears directly on the nractial problems to be solved in Amer ican politics. The book is above all stimulating because, while it does not spare the evils in present conditions, it is thoroughly optimistic in tone. The lucidity of President Butler's thought and the vigor of his style combine to make this an eminently readable book, He sowed lettuce and raddlsh seeds. He sowed onion seed and bought to mato sprouts. He provided for pump kins and hollyhocks. He planted wat ermelon and cantelope seeds and he arranged for summer squashes. The clothes-lines were boosted up and the cook was told that if she as much as put her foot on one of those beds her doom was sure. Last of all, he went about the yard planting sunflower seed wherever there was a vacant spot. The sunflower par ticularly appealed to him. It was an emblem of innocence. It had no guile about it. It was ingenuous and frank It turned its honest face to the sun every morning and was not afraid of an Investigation. Mr. Bowser would have five hundred of them in his gar den, and as he walked among them at eventide with his hands behind his back he would be at peace with all mankind. During the month of spading. shoveling, hoeing, raking and sowing and planting Mr. Bowser was called on by men who wanted to sell him new milch cows, and who had hogs and hens to dispose of, but he-turned them away. Parties wanted to sell him au tomobiles and balloons, but he shook his head and planted more sunflower seeds. He was offered stock in oil wells and copper mines -at ridiculously low figures, but he waved them aside. Members of the Gay Old Boys' club called to ask him to deliver an address, but the address he delivered made their hair stand up. It was only when the month of May was ten days old that Mr. Bowser fin ished his work and waited for results. He had done his share, and now Nature must do the rest. There came frosts and thunder showers; boys invaded the yard and galloped over his beds: dogs scratched up the soil in search of treas ure, but he was not discouraged. It was when he began to call out in his sleep nightly and talk about flowers and vegetables that Mrs. Bowser felt that she ought to call the doctor in. He was sent for. He declared that Mr. Bowser had lost fifty pounds of flesh in six weeks, and that if he did not cease working he would not be long for this world. He found one shoulder lopped down four inches, and one leg con- l wim. hip.! jmii,ii,hh,i mii tracted six. and he estimated that the spine was six inches out of plumb. He said all this and much more, and Mr. Bowser listened. In grim silence and then answered: "Doctor, Til have a garden if I have to walk around in it after I m dead. One evening' in the latter days of May mere were some green snoots to be observed on one of the beds. Mrs Bowser and the cook were brought out to view them, and Mr. Bowser turned his head away to conceal his tears. The garden was coming on. Nature was reaching out her hand for a shake. That night he got out of his beef five different times to go to the back window and see that the green shoots were all right, and in his sleep he called out that he would murder the human hyena who dared to rob him of them. -toi-o -THv-r IP 5t A MUCH As 0-f HE.R POOT ON OMR OF 7rb"VOE05 HER OOOH wf, Alas, when morning came those green shoots were no more. Two or three dogs in search of prime beef bones had entered the yard between times and dug and scratched and pawed until nothing was left. Mrs. Bowser looked for an outbreak, but none followed. Mr. Bowser's face simply took on a new grimness and he made and replanted the beds. A week later there were other green things showing all over the garden. A warm rain had popped everything out of the ground like rapid transit. That evening Mr. Bowser smiled and laughed for the first time in many days. He had fought the fight and felt that he had won. He could even identify the hollyhocks from the sun flowers. He went to bed like a man who has done a good deed and sees his reward in view, and the cook made up her mind that if he was a paranoic he was not dangerous. That night there was a thunder shower but Mr, Bowser slept and reeked not. The thunderbolts spared his garden, but still when he arose in the morning he looked upon a scene of devastation. A prowling dog had discovered a cat in the alley at mid night and run her into the Bowser garden and across and around it.. Other cats had come to her- assist ance: - other dogs had mixed in. Amidst the flashes and the reverbera tion a jrreat battle had been fought. No matter which side won, all had escaped with their lives. It was the garden that had been ground between two millstones. Not a green thing re mained. Sunflowers, hollyhocks, let tuce, tomatoes, cucumbers all had been squashed to squash and trampled into the mud to be seen never again. Mr. Bowser looked from a back win dow and turned away. Mrs. Bowser patted him softly on the back and he lay down on the lounge and closed his eyes. He was a wolloped man.

This is going to be the greatest year for suckers ever known in the history of the United States. They are going to bite at any and every sort of bait held out to them, and they are going to bite hard. Wall street is going to shear its lambs in droves, and the .west is pre paring to unload and skin its tens of thousands with neatness and dispatch. It s in the air. You have but to close your -eyes to see a picture of Uncle Reuben mortgaging his cows and sell ing his hogs to invest in gold mines and buy out oil wells. In the ten years that we have been editing the Kicker and prancing around the wild and woolly we have learned a thine or two and gathered a thing or two to our bosom. We are not a philanthropist, and no more honest than the average, but we shall refuse to Join in the scheme to catch suckers. On the contrary, we are prepared to offer them rare and unexceptional bargains and let them down as easily as possible. If they feel that they must bite at somebody s hook let them try ours. They can sleep on our goods for thirty nights, and If not as repre sented return them by express. Our bargain number one consists of half a million dollars' worth of stock in the Ben Hummel gold mine of Ne vada. Nobody has ever been able to locate this mine. It isn't even a hole i ui. J ! . Examples We satisfy the wonts of both with a advertisement on this page. The daily of the State Journal is at least SO v than that of any other Topeka daily. EALJESATETRAJSFERS J. A. Lauck to A.

Suckers are going to be offered this stock, at about 8 0 cents on the dollar, but we are. prepared to do better than that. We bought what we have at two cents on the dollar, and will sell at one. Don't be bashful about ordering, ; Bargain number two consists of one million dollars' worth of stock in the Idaho-Montana diamond mine. It was advertised in all the papers five or six years ago that a wagon load of dia monds had already been taken out, and that dividends of five thousand per winirl he rjaid. Neither the lori r,r snarklers nor the divl dends have been" heard of since, but if there is a minister ui me uv" his salary by invest ment he can have our whole stock for a ten dollar bill. We lent about that sum on it and shall be slad to get back our own. Bargain number three is two million dollars' worth of stock in the Big Hooe silver mine. After it naa Deen announced that the mine was one solid mass of silver ana couia supply the world for a thousand years to r.mo nnrl -after some ten million dol lars' worth of stock had been sold, the mine dropped out of sight. So did its promoters. So did Big Hopes. This stock will be offered again this year for 70 cents on the dollar. If any struggling widow wants ours for two cents a pound she can have it and pay us in patching our trowsers. Bargain number four alludes to the Great American Water, Wine and Fruit Supply company. The idea was to olant one million acres of desert land to berries and fruit and vineyards, and to supnly one million inhabitants of the far west with cold spring water from the top of the Rocky mountains. Unfortunately for the rest of us. the man who made $250,000 out of the scheme fell dead while playing poker and the thing went to pieces. It is to be resurrected again this year as an in vestment for orphans. Any orphan crying for this stock can get a wood box full of it from us by proving his moral character and paying express charges. Don't deal with any one else until our stock is exhausted. Bargain number five hit us a solar plexus blow years ago, when we had the down of innocence on our cheek. We inserted a full-page advertisement for the Western American Oil com pany and received one million dollars' worth of stock in return. There was never a well bored. There was never a drop of oil. There was never a cor poration that any one could find. After six or seven years this oil stock Is be ing oiled up again and the suckers are asked to bite at pan ' Our shares are still in the old trunk. The rats may have nibbled at some of it, but what Is left will be sold at a cent on the dollar. It is worth that to paper the walls of the hired girl's bedroom with. If she is red-headed she . will appre ciate the effort to make her happy. Bargain number six consists of five million dollars' worth of shares In the Hop-Scotch gold mine. We can't tell you where it was located, because the president of the company had forgot ten the spot himself. He said it didn't make a cent's worth of difference whether it was located or not, provid ing the public made five hundred per cent dividends. We bought ten shares at ten cents a share, and he was so pleased with our generosity that he presented us with enough more to make up the five million. When he had made a hundred thousand dollars out I Someone Wants Which You Do They want work; you want help. They want to rent; you a tenant. They want to buy; you to sell. WAXTEP MALE HFT.P.

Before investing elsewhere call and see our stock. We will sell it to good looking widows at one-half cent on the dollar and make them a present of a cali co dress besides. Bargain number seven is a corker. Some seven years ago a bright, smart clerk in a dry goods store in this Ter ritory conceived the idea of bringing camels and camels'-hair shawls closer together. He therefore organized the Great American Camelo . company, capital fifty million dollars. The idea was to Import half a million camels and having the shawl-weaving done at home. In that way every girl working in a factory at four dollars a week could have a shawl. The young man wasn't a bit stingy. In return for our lending him twenty dollars in cash and inserting a two-column ad, he save us seven million dollars worth of stock and assured us on his honor as a dry goods clerk that we could soon buy up all the railroads in America. We be lieve he made about a thousand dollars out of the scheme and then went east and opened a hen farm. Some one has resurrected the fake and Is to try it again. Before biting, the suckers will please address us. There are enough of these shares in our possession to carpet the floors of -one hundred hog pens and give an asthetic twist to nve hundred hogs. They can be had for the asking. If they don't help the hogs they won't hurt them. We lose twenty dollars in giving away these bonds, but In return we get the reputation of be ing a good fellow. In writing us, state the size of your hog-pen, and the age, sex and color of the hogs to be benefit ed. (Copyrighted 1907, by E. C. Parcells. ) Insanity Not Increasing. It has commonly been said that lu nacy was increasing In the modern world. But Mr. Noel Humphreys in his paper read before the Statistical society proclaims the theory that lu nacy is- not increasing at all. Accord ing to his Ingenious statement, the apparent increase . is due not to the growth of lunacy, out to tne growth of the care of lunacy. To put the mat ter shortly, he holds that it Is not bo much that there are more madmen, but that there are more mad-doctors. London Nation- Thonglitful Burglars.
