In llii. Mlernry World of
Among thoso who have milFoiod
tho misfortunuof boingon the un
popular sido in tho recent parlia
mentary elections in England is
tho author of thoso onco popular
ronnnces, " King Solomon's
Minos" and the woiid "She."
Mr. Hngg.ud stood for election in
East Norfolk and his canvnss was
attendod with various lively and
exciting incidents which porhaps
niny servo him as tho warp if not
tho woof for somo futuro rotnanco
of real life, sinco thoy failed to

If this suddon and calamitous
onding to his political aspirations
has tho lesult of turning Mr.
Haggard's enorgies into n litorary
channel again tho reading public
may gain more by his defeat than
tho llouso of Commons lost. Mr.
Haggaul has not boon much in
ovideuco lately in a literary sense,
but the qualities manifested in
tho production of suchremarkablo
storieB as "King Solomon's
Mines" and "Joss" suroly justify
tho boliof that we have not hoard
the last of this versatile and pow
erful writer. Mr. Haggard is still
a young man, only 39 last March,
and is theroforo good for many
more yoars of work, as lifo usual
ly goes. It is worth noting in
this connection thnt Mr. Hag
gard's first book was of ft political
character. It roluted to ovents
in South Africa and nppoared in
18S2. it hud no better success
than tho writer hhnsolf has hud
in politics rocoutly.
Two years later ho publish
ed "Dawn," and a year lator
"Tho Witch's Head," both
stories of udvonturo. Ihoy caused
not much comment. ""Dawn"
was rather crude, but "Tho
Witch's Head" indicated that tho
power to write a stirring story
for boys lay in tho author. In
the autumn of 1885 this power
was rovoalod when "King fcsulo
mou's Minos" was published, a
book that was highly praised by
tho critics and immediately ac
quired wide popularity. The
presouco of a new lorco in fiction
was recognizod, a force that
brought fieehnoHs of method and
great vigor and vitality of treat
ment to the doveloptnoiit of an
old idoa tho hazardous search
for a hiddon treasure, which now
nothing loss thun tho diamous
mines from which King Solomnd
was supposed to havo got his
jewels. Such u story of daring
adventure, however, in which the
interost wus not only maintained
but was incroasod from tho begin
ning to tho ond, was well-nigh
umquo, though it by no means
repiesentod tlio highest form of
Writing of this story, which
inado him famous, Mr. Haggard
says: "King Solomon's Mines"
was written us an experiment in
boys' books. It would bo impos
sible for mo to define whero facts
end and fiction begins in tho work,
as the two are vory much miiod
up together. I may add that its
success was quite unexpected by
mo, as the work, uudertakou at
haphazard, was carried out at odd
hours, for tho most part aftor a
long day nt chambers."
.Mr. Huggurd's information re
garding South Africun scenes and
native character wus gathered ut
first hand. For whon only l'J Mr.
Haggaul accompanied Sir Henry
Bulwor to Natal, and during tho
two succeeding years ho served
on tho statr of Sir Thoophilus
Shopstono, the special commis
sioner to the Transvaal. Ho
withdrew from tho colonial sorvico
in 1871) and roturning to London
and marrying tho only daughter
of the lato Major Margltson of
Ditchinghttm Honso, Norfolk, be
camo a practicing barristor of
Lincoln's Inn. Ex.
Judjre Otrden of Oakland
recently jjave a young1 married
woman some good advice when
he refused to grant her a
divorce. The couple had been
mairied three vears and were
quite young, but they evident
ly got along about as well as
most married people do. How
ever, the young woman thought
she ought to have a divorce
and filed a complaint against
ner Husband alleging cruelty.
The specific facts set foith
were that her husband fre
quently slapped her, whether
playfully or not the complaint
does not state, and that once
he spoke crossly to her. This,
however, was while the hus
band was putting up a stove,
and therefore cannot be won
dered at. On another occasion
the .young wife says her hus
band' threatened her, but in
answer to the Judge she ex
plained he had only told her
the proper thing to bring her I
under subjection would be to
raise a family. But this poor
husband's greatest offense lay
in his feet. He had big ones
according to his wife, and on
one occasion he had the auda
citv to place them in her lap,
and she said, "he had his boots
In refusing to grant a divorce
on such trivial testimony Judge
Ogden gave the wife a little
fatherly lecture. " You can
hardly expect the court to grant
you a divorce upon such testi
mony. If we were to grant
you a divorce upon that snow
ing there would not be a
couple in Oakland that would
not be entitled to a divorce. It
is impossible to find human
nature that is ideally perfect.
There are many little imper
fections that education and as
sociation will smooth off, and
married people must exercise
forbearance and patience. In
stead of widening the breach
close it up. A young couple
such as you are will find mar
ried life a very happy existence
if you will, return to your home
and not do just what you have
been doing heretofore."
That Oakland Judge had
some sense, indeed it is ap
parent that his wisdom arose
from experience. It is a pity
there are not more like him. If
there were there would be
fewer divorces and more hap
py homes. What is home
without a mother-in-law and
the privilege of putting your
feet on your wife's lap without
putting vour boots on first.
All or which reminds us of
another little story. By the
sieamer Australia we have re
ceived one of the largest con
signments of hardware ever
landed on these fly specks of
the Pacific. It comprises an
assortment of plated ware, ideal
coffee pots, three and five
thousand gallon tanks, steel
wire cloth, tlour sifters, black
smith's bellows, wire mats,
cutlery, feather dusters, hoe
handles, California lawn sprink
lers, lanterns, shovels, rice
plows, bath tub enamel, Dis
ston's No. 2 cane knives, mill
saw files, sole leather and as
sorted goods such as varnishes,
patent water closets, paint
burner's, Hendry's mixed
paints, hose in all sizes and
qualities, metallic paint in oil
and shooting coats.
We have also received a
fresh shipment of "Tribune"
and "Monarch" bicycles, with
lamps and fittings of all kinds.
All of the above goods are
on the wharf and may be ship
ped to any port of the islands.
