LITERARY NOTES.
An enterprising gentleman has written and
even published in the West a book of 519 pages
In which he attempts to prove that ■William
Shakespeare of Stratford" did not write the
Shakespeare plays. He does not essay to show
who did write them. The announcement of the
book sets forth '.he assertion that "the Shaksper
myth had its beginning in Ben Jonson - s verses,
prefixed to the First Fo'.io. years after the death
of Shaksper, which Folio was simply a pub
lisher's venture. The verses were written in
ridicule of the pretensions set up for the player
by -these publishers, and the ironical praises
were never intended or expected by Jonson to
be believed. It is further claimed that Shaksper
never learned to rite even his own name, and
the proof of It is found in the dissimilarity of
the five signatures extant which are attributed
Is him."
Mr. Rudyard Kipling and the late Mr. Grant
Allen were far from agreement on the question
of military preparation for England. Mr. Kip
ling wrote in December. 1898. to the proprietor
of the "Canadian Year Book." who had asked
him for a contribution: "It is needless to say
that any plan to arouse and keep up interest
Jr. the defences of the Dominion has my keenest
sympathy. The English volunteer regiments
are, as you know, raised and trained on the
theory that they are to be employed only on
the home defences of the island; consequently,
since we are a beautifully illogical breed, I
should assume that In the event of war these
regiments, in whole or In part, will promptly
volunteer for service of offence and attack over
■Mat
"Reasoning on the same Illogical basis, I
fancy that, given a Continental trouble, there
would be some difficulty in restraining your
regiments, in whole or in part, from volunteer
ing for the sam» B ort of work, and no man
knows when the empire may want them, and
want them very badly, indeed. Therefore, it
p(fms to me. no regiment errs in taking Itself
and its work seriously— if only to avoid possible
troubl* later on."
A few weeks earlier Grant Allen had written
in answer to the same request: "You can know
very little of my aims and ideals if you think
I would willingly do anything to help on a
■work whose avowed object is to arouse 'mili
tary enthusiasm* Military enthusiasm means
enthusiasm for killing people: my desire in life
has been not to kill, but to help and aid all man
kind, irrespective of nationality, creed, language
or color. 1 hate war. and everything that leads
to It. as I hate murder, rapine or the ill treat
ment of women. 1 dislike slavery, however
cloaked under the disguise of Imperialism." I
contribute gladly to works designed to strength
en the bond* of amity between nations and to
render war impossible; but I cannot contribute
to one which aims at making peaceable Cana
dian citizen? throw themselves into the devour
ing whirlpool of militarism. Excuse my plain
avowal. A Bishop is hardly flattered if you ask
him to write in favor of atheism, or a prominent
temperance advocate if you ask him for a rous
ing drinking song calculated to raise an enthusi
asm for whiskey."
In one of O'Mfara's hitherto unpublished talks
with Xapole-ir. which will be found In the March
"Century," the Emperor is recorded as telling
the doctor that he was never Intoxicated but
once in his life, and that was twenty-four years
before, when at Nice he actually absorbed three
bnttlps of Burgundy at a sitting. •'Oh, how sick
I was the next day!" exclaimed Napoleon; and
he added a logical expression of wonder how a
man who has once endured such an experience
"can ever think of doing it again."
A nice, genial, happy, good natured old Mlow
— that is a characterization of the late Richard
Bleckmore. novelist, by one of his oldest friends.
"He tvas a John Ridd sort of man," adds this
friend— who is. by the way, Marston, the pub
lisher — "big bone.i a real West Countryman, and
no nonsense about him. He had no affectations,
did not care a rap for society or anything of that
sort, but liked to live In a quiet, simple way.
I used to go and have a smoke with him and
talk over things in general."'
One of Blaokmore's earliest literary efforts
v a#= a little book, a translation from Virgil, en
titled "Farm and Fruit of Old. " He was t-s
pccfcmlly devoted to the cultivation of grapes, and
his grapes were almost unmatched in the coun
try. On gardening generally he would some
times say to Mr. Marston, "You see, when fruit
is plentiful there Is no market for It. When one
has little to sell prices are high, so there you
ate.''
Hte own favorite among his novels is said to
have b«»en not "Lorna Doone," but "Spring
haven."
Mr. Marston has lately be«"n printing some
more or less interesting reminiscence? of»other
departed writers. Of Bulwer he says that he was
a "tall, thin old gentleman, with a plight stoop,
very aristocratic in style and manner, with a
prominent aquiline nose and a distinguished
lonk. He was ceremoniously polite and kindly
In his address, .md as deaf as a post." Charles
fieade the publisher remembers as a very In
teresting man, tsll and stout, of a fine, florid
complexion, and the owner of large, wide opened
eyeg, gentle and mild, lik^ those of a cow. Hte
voice was rather husky, and gave one always
the idea that he was speaking with suppressed
passion. He had a pretty Idea of the value of
literary property, if we may judge from this
quotation from his letters to the publisher con
cerning his novel "Hard Cash" : "Dtck^na has
pronounced It incomparably my best production,
and looking at the research and labor I have be
stowed I should not be compensated by the
sum I ask. . . . With this fair warning I
can only say that I shall be happy to see you
here either as negotiator or visitor whenever
you have half an hour to bestow on me."
In another letter he says:
"I truct, my dear sir. you will allow that I
have made an effort to meet you; I will only add
that the ordinary novel, which deals, however
ably, with shadows only, is one kind of property;
a story that cuts deep into realities of the day,
and has already set hundreds discussing It as
history and !aw, not fiction, is a different thing."
The compiler of the "Townsend Library,"
that unique collection of historical narratives
pertaining to the National life in America, which
was purchased by Mr. F. A. Schermerhorn and
by him presented to the library of Columbia
University, is bringing out another collection of
an interesting character. Mr. Thomas S. Town
end has prepared under the title of '•Sidelights
on American History, from the Discovery of
America to the Civil War." a volume containing
2.500 statements, from 500 different authorities,
on the topics enumerated in the table of con
tents. Some of the subjects are "The Flag of
the I'nion," "Origin of Our National Songs."
"The War of 1812," "The Indians," "The Mon
roe Doctrine," "Curiosities of France," "The
War with Mexico" and "The Location of the
National Capital." In the prospectus we find
fragment! like this one, drawn from J. Watts
de Peyster: "The battle of Saratoga was purely
an American triumph. No Frenchman fixed a
bayonet or fired a shot." The book Is to be an
anthology of similar notes, some brief, others of
considerable length. Much of the information
promises to be of an unfamiliar character, and
the whole ought to be an Interest in? storehouse
of historical odds and ends
A PRACTICAL MAX.

Volumes LX and LXI of the "Dictionary of
National Biography" (The Macmlllan Company)
are the latest published. The first of these car
ries the record from Watson to Whewell; the
second closes with a sketch of Zachariah Will
lams, medical practitioner and inventor, who, in
the eighteenth century, made a machine for ex
tracting the salt from sea water and making It
drinkable. Thomas Went worth. Earl of Straf
ford, the Duke of Wellington, William the Con
queror, Wllkes and John W*esley are among the
many subjects represented in these two vol
umes. The most notable thing about them,
however, is that they bring this enterprise so
close to completion. There will be, presumably,
but two more volumes, one finishing the alpha
bet, the other giving a supplementary sheaf of
biographies. The history of English literature
has witnessed no more splendid achievement
than this In the special field it Illustrates. It is
a monument which will win greater and greater
honor as time goes on.

"The Cambridge Encyclopaedia" (The Cam
bridge Encyclopaedia Company) is a monthly
magazine of notes on history, religion, chro
nology, numismatics, science, commerce, and. In
short, all sorts of general information. It is
edited by A. F. Demorest. The text Is brief, and
is put together In popular form. Kach number
is indexed.
The fifth volume in the new library edition of
the works of Dr. Edward Everett Hale, now
appearing from the press of Little. Brown & Co.,
of Boston, contains "Philip Nolan's Friends:
A Story of the Change of Western Empire." In
a new preface the author has some interesting
things to say. The war with Spain has com
pelled us. he remarks, to look back on our early
history, to ask why the people in Ihe Southwest,
at least, distrust Spain. "As I believe," he adds,
"the cause of this hatred and want of confi
dence is in the history which follows In the
reader's hands. Tn the year 1801 Philip Nolan,
a citizen of Kentucky, had organized a company
of nearly twenty Southwestern men to go into
Texas on a commission from the Spanish Gov
ernor of Orleans. On March 22, 1801, this same
Philip Nolan was killed by the Spanish Gov
ernor of Texas, who knew that he had a pass
of the Spanish Governor of Orleans. His com
rades were taken prisoners, and languished in
New-Mexico for the next ten years. In 1807
they were made to throw dice for their lives,
and Ephraim Blackburn, who threw the lowest
cast, was taken out and shot. This was done
to men who were in Texes on their legitimate
business, with the authority of the King of
Spain." The recital of these and other familiar
facts certainly lends added verisimilitude to the
story that follows. Nevertheless, if this new
edition of "Philip Nolan's Friends" is welcome,
it is chiefly because the book exhibits Dr. Hale's
narrative powers at their best, because it is a
good story well told. This edition of his col
lected works is good in form.
"Mythology for Moderns" Is really a bad title
for the book by Mr. J. S. Metcalfe, brought out
by the Life Publishing Company. The sub-title.
"An Up-to-Daie Text-Book for I'p-to-Date Stu
dents," is even more misleading. In the first
place, moderns want a Joke to be a Joke. Sec
ondly, an up to date student not only makes
the same demand, but he insists upon a peculiar
snap and brilliancy in the joke. "Mythology
for Moderns" trit-s so hard to be funny that the
result is lugubrious. No one objects to a hu
morist taking the gods humorously. But when
he is crude and labored, when he fails to pro
voke the faintest adumbration of a smile, we
feel that he would have been far cleverer If he
had left thf" gods to themselves. That is the
way the reader must feel about Mr. Metcalfe
In this book.
It is nearly thirty yeara since Mr. Samuel
Adams Drake first published his interesting vol
ume of topographical and historical research,
"Old Landmarks and Historic Fields of Middle
sex." He now brings out a new and revised
edition of the work under the title of "Historic
Mansions and Highways Around Boston" (Bos
ton: Little. Brown & Co.). having revisited the
scenes described In the book and made further
investigations of authorities so as to give the
record all possible accuracy. The good quality
of the book was long ago acknowledged. Mr.
Drake was not content with mere description.
All was fish that came to his net, no that it
bore upon his general subject and helped him
to people his scenes with historic figures. The
text abounds in apposite personalia, in anec
dotpp, in historical Information, deftly handled
so as never to be dry. Many Illustrations are
Included in this publication, which, it may be
added, appears in substantial and attractive
form. These entertaining pages deserved a new
lease of life, and this edition will undoubtedly
give it to them.
The third, fourth, fifth and sixth volumes In
the new Shenandoah edition of Mr. Frank R.
Stockton's writings, published by the Scrinners.
have appeared. They are devoted respectively
to "Rudder Grange," "The Hundredth Man."
•Ardis Claverden" and "The Great War Syndi
cate." the last mentioned story being accom
panied by three other short tales. The Sfrib
ners also bring out the fifteenth volume !n the
"Outward Bound" edition of Mr. Kipling's
works, containing Part I of the letters of travel,
"From Sea to Sea." These l^ttf-rs naturally
lack material suitable for illustration hy the
author's father in the peculiar manner made
familiar in preceding volumes of this edition.
Accordingly, the plates included are from photo
graphic views of some of the scenes visited. It
Is announced that "Stalky & Co." will not be
Illustrated either by Mr. J. Lockwood Kipling
or the artist who made the pictures for this
book while It was running In serial form Mr
L. Raven-Hill. Mr. Kipling has himself select
ed Mr. Gordon Browne to make some drawings
of scenes of schoolboy life for the book. The
volume of "Early Verse." however, will contain
Illustrations by the father of the author.
The thirtieth and last volume in the (v - n
tenary Edition" of Carlyle. published by Charles
Scribner"s Sons, has Just reached us. It Is the
fifth volume of the "Critical and Miscellaneous
Essays," and contains among other things the
papers written for the Edinburgh Encyclopaedia
on Montaigne. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu.
Necker, and various other subjects, and long
left uncollected. This volume also Includes the
curious fragment printed In "Eraser's Maga
zine" in 1831, under the title of "Cruthers and
Jonson; Or. the Outskirts of Life," the "Early
Kings of Norway" and "The "Portraits of John
Knox." "Shooting Niagara and After" and the
"Latter Stage of the French-German War.
1870-*7 l. Summary," are also printed. An Index
to the five volumes of miscellaneous essays
completes the book. Of the edition as a whole
we cannot speak too warmly. The books have
been admirably edited, and In printing. Illustra
tion and binding they are all that could be de
sired.
