Keiured of a Moderate Income, He Was Satisfied to Give the World the Best of Which He Was Capable —Lesson in His Life. The death of Jules Verne, ai the age f seventy-seven years, will be felt a personal loss by millions of read* r. throughout the world, for some of ■ stories have been translated so ' idely that he may be said to have rid. in the true sense of the expre*- '•< n, un International audience. Liv ing for the most pan away Irora the hurry and hustle of affairs yet by occasional travel or visit keeping in touch with them—though cateful not to be absorbed thereby—Jules Verne worked on steadily, year after year, anting money sufficient for his needs, accomplishing his literacy pur pose. enjoying personally a normally, «ane existence which, to onlookers, scented to approach the ideal for an author. Quite recently, referring to the es tale left by the late Lew Wallace, we mentioned the general understanding hat it was derived principally from th£ book and dramatic royalties of a single work of fiction. The reverse Is true of Jules Verne, who. if current gossip be accepted, contracted nearly forty y >ars ago to produce two books a year receiving for each one the' equlve tof $2,000. A question that at once suggests itself is whether Gen. Wallace would have striven, year after year, to write other and even better books than that which made him famous had he sold this one outright for a comparatively small sum. and whether Jules Verne would have continued his marvelous produc tiveness had he received a consider able fortune in royalties from any of his first books. This, of course, is a question not to be answered definitely. Under the spur of financial need Gen. Wallace might have written a long list of ex cellent books. Furthermore had Jules Verne been enriched in his parly thirties through sales o f Ks first “scientific” novel, “Five Weeks In a Balloon.” it is possible that the world might never have had Its “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.” or “Around the World In Eighty Days." But those who have been In terested by Verne’s wonderfully in genious tales do not like to think of such a possibility. To them he was energy personified, the father of in vention realized, an ever-bubbling, sparkling, joyous fountain of youthful spirits and hope, even la old age. That he worked well under arrange ment with a publisher whereby he received' a moderate but regular in come his career attests, and he Is not alone in this. One of the most suc cessful of American writers for boys —at least from the boys’ standpoint, and from the publisher’s—worked un der similar contract for nearly a gen eration. excepting that he received SI,OOO for each book produced. We fancy that some of the younger American writers—yachting In thf Mediterranean, speeding along Fifth avenue in a SIO,OOO motor car. build ing castles in Newport, Spain, and elsewhere—may think of Jules Verne as doubtless they have thought of Milton; or. if they never heard of Paradise Lost." as they have thought of Hawthorne. Thoreau, Emerson. One can imagine them saying, with a sym pathetic shake of the head. “Poor old chap! Grinding away nearly sixty years lor a beggarly four thou’! Won der why the dickens he didn’t try ‘ad.’ writing or put the blacksmith joke? | together for the ten-twent’-ihlrt’ shows They pay pretty well." It might be worth while for these young persons to reflect that Jules Verne and some of the others men ' Honed, were of snch caliber that they • did not have to possess fortunes in order to be great men as well as highly successful writers - New York Sun. A Fine Variety. ‘I was eating my cupper the otter evening in a little Kentucky hotel, said A. B. Con*a>. a: the Willard ha te’ last night, “when a neatly dresseu country girl, who was waiting on the table. came up and a.'ked if I wruld have dessert. I inquired what kind of de>sert she had, and she replied: • ‘We have pie.’ • *Tou may bring me a pie.' I said, and she inqulrra; “ What kind do you want? • ‘What kinds have yen?" “ ‘We have three kinds—open top, cross-barred and klvered. but they are all apple.’ she said, apparently very proud of having so wide a variety for rne to select from.*’—Louisville (Ve rier Journal.
