An Interpretation of the Animal
] . ft of ' the Bed Man.
By Charle* A. Eastman (OUiycsa). v\ l it li fron
tiipl«c*. 12 mo. pp. vlli, Mi. Harper & Bios.
The fashion of the modern nature-lorists. who,
writing the life stories of the beasts and the
birds and the fishes, represent them as reason
ing beings, has both Its advantages and disad
vantages. It Is more informing than the old
style of animal stories which were purely fic
tion, the birds and beasts being merely humans
in the cuise of animals, but there is too often
a tendency on the part of the new school to
"write into the parts" emotions and a degree of
knowledge quite foreign to the characters of
hears and eagle* and titmice. The added attri
butes may increase the interest to those who
read solely for the story, but It is an interest
pained at the sacrifice of truth, causing grief to
the judicious.
The red Indian, who ilved closer than the
vhite man to the denizens of the plain and
forest, also attributed certain human character
istics to them, hut, his own meWl processes be
ing more simple than those of his civilized white
brother, he did not impose so great a strain on
the Imagination of hip hearers when relating his
stories and legends. The necessities of his daily
existence made him a very keen observer of
nature and a student and follower of her ways,
learning from the animals many useful things.
he was inclined to regard them with a certain
respect, perhaps not undeserved. In the book
which Dr. Charles A. Eastman has written of
the relations of the Indians find the -animal
people" we have the benefit of a trained and
educated intelligence brought to the interpreta
tion of the legendary and acquired lore of the
red mar.. The volume has, accordingly, a double
Interest— that of the stones as stories and as
representing the Indian point of view. Dr.
Eastman hae not adhered closely to Indian
legends, often adopting the method of the new
•"nature" school, yet his accounts of the lives
•f the familiar animals of the Northwest im
press one as being more reasonable and no less
•ntertainin*; than those related by many other
nature writers. The fables, songs and super
stitious fancies of the Indian, which he brings
in bare and there, are valuable as suggesting the
toavblt of mind of the red hunter regarding the
fourfooted tribes. The words of one of the phi
losophers and orators of the red mer. give the
clew to It:
And who is the grandfather of these *iient peo
ple? Is it not the Great Mystery? For they know
the laws of their life so well.' They must have for
their maker our maker. Then they are our brothers!
Regarding the spirit of the animal as a mys
tery belonging to the Great Mystery, the Indian
kills only as the exigencies of his own existence
demand, and often after taking the life o* his
game pays due homage to its spirit.
It was formerly held that the spirits of animals
may communicate Important messages to man.
The wild hunter often rerueed during trie remainder
Of his llf" to kill certain animals, utter he had

!*fe Many a bunttr has absent, d himself for days
said nis-hts from his camp in pursuit of this know!
r.ige He oonF'.dered it farrtlege to learn the se
crete of an animal and then use this knovwenye
s.-filr,;.; him Observations made Cor the
purposes of the hunt are entirely distinct from thk=,
th« "spirit hunt." and include only the outward
habits and noticeable actions at the game.
The respect paid to the spirits of dead ani
mals is shown in several stories, notably in
"The Challenge," an account of a duel between
two elk, witnessed by a party of five hunters.
Both of the fourfooted duellists perished, and the
Indians were so greatly impressed by the spec
tacle that they returned to camp empty handed,
leaving handfuls of cut tobacco beside each of
the e!k One of them even took off one of the
two eagle feathers that ho always wore and
tl»»<J it to the monarch's head. Another held his
filled pipe toward the fallen king. "Let thy
spirit partake of this smoke. Hehakal" he ex
. bllmni May I have thy courage and strength
when I meet my enemy In battle."
The last chapter gives, in the form of a dis-
CSMtSB between a number of old Indian hunters,
their views concerning the language of animals.
Not all of them hold to the same views, but the
H^neral consensus of opinion is that the animals
have ways of communicating with each other
and of instructing their young by this means.
Oil Ha.hay give? the following apt Illustration
from his observation* of fhapawee, the beaver:
Once I saw a beaver send bar whole family to
the opposi-J' 5'5 ' tlcl* of th« v r >r\'\ when she was about
to f«»ll a large tree-. One of the young ones mm din
obedVnt and Insisted on following th« mother to
her work, and he was roundly rebuked. The little
fellow was chafed hack to the pond, and when
h* dove down the mother dove after him. They
both came out near the shore on the opposite side.
There she emphatically slapped the water with her
tall and dove, back again. I understood her wishes
well, although I am not a beaver.

"The Athenjsum" prints some extracts from
certain unpublished letters of Sir Walter BooCt
which were read, In part, at a recent dinner of
the Edinburgh Rcott Club. In one of them the
romancer treat* of the estate on which he found
so much happiness— and woe. "I assure you,"
he write*, "we are not a little proud of betas
greeted as Laird and Lady of Abbotsford. Wo
trill gl% r e a grand gala when we take possession.
and, as we are very clannish in this corner, all
the Scotie in the country, from the <iuk* to the
peasant, shall dance on the green to th*» l-ac
pipe* anfi drink whiskey punch." In another
letter, alluding to the offer of the Laureateship
he had received frcm the Prince Regent,
:t: t Bays :
I lined the honor as handsomely a* I could.
Th* emolument *«« no ereat object, being under
{yK> a year, and might. 1 thought, be better con
ferred on some literary r«?rEon. who was not other
wise provided for. But. besides. I wish to be alto

with every sentiment of loyalty to our own.
Mr. Richard Bajrot, whose novels of modern
Roman society have won him some repute, Is
engaged upon a story to be published In the
spring. H« ie also writing a volume on the
Italian lakes, to be issued with illustrations in
color. H« ha? an f-titrancing theme, and if he
does justice to it his book ought to have un
common popularity, for the lakes have not often
been celebrated with just the right touch.
Dr. William Kr.ight, emeritus profesVor of
philosophy In the University >f St. Andrews, has
just published, under the tHls of "Hetrospects,"
a flrtt Berlt-a of recollections of his distinguished
friends. He prints an Interesting note from th»
physician who attended Cailyle during his last
years. "He was she most courteous man I ever
met." wrote Dr. Maclasan. "Never once did
that old :na.n fail to rise up to receive me, nor
allow me to leave his room without walking to
ifce door •with me, while he had strength to do
so. After death, all the ruggedness and the
wrinkles disappeared from his face. But for the
beard, it as like that of a woman, bo delicate
and beautifully moulded It was."
Browning once told Dr. Knight "that all the
mttntelllfibility of •Sordello* was due to the
printers. They would change his punctuation
and not print his own commas, semi-colons,
dashes and brackets." 'Twas ever thus, with
printers of a cert:;;:! sort. It. Knight v.as the
recipient of some lntprectinfr letters about Cole
ridge from th« late Whinveil Elwin. The for
mer editor of the "Quarterly' faid that "all tli«
accounts he got of Coleridge from those who
knew him before Ml final asylum with Oilman
agreed in this— that he. was destitute of Belf
control, and that on the slightest Incentive ha
gave himself up to eelf-indulgence." Blwtn ftlN
wrote to Dr. Knight, saying. "I have a letter of
LxickTmrfe giving: «- aketch of De Quinceys
career, and from this it Is evident that his hab
its for many y«*ars of his middle life must have
compelled Wordsworth to drop him. as It did
Lockhart himself, which sufficiently explains
De Quincey's sourness."
The Maemillans have Just published a ma?t
lUflceut art book In "The LJves and Works o?
Jaxiies and William Ward," by Mn. Julia
Frankau, who first attracted attention as a
writer on engravings by her "Eighteenth Cen
tury Color Prints." Her next book was "The
Life and Works of John Raphael Smith," the
form of which Is followed in the present publi
cation. The Ward book Is divided into tw"o
parts. The first is printed In a large octavo, and
contains biographical matter and catalogues,
with some thirty photogravures of paintings
by James Ward which have never been en
graved. The second volume is an imposing port
folio containing forty copperplate engravings,
reproducing mezzotints and stipples, the latter
being printed in color. Many of the designs
were male by William Ward himself, but most
of those given in this portfolio are by Hoppner.
George Morland, Reynolds and other eighteenth
century artists. Among thA Hoppner portrait"
are some of the finest things he ever did.
To Visit Presbyterian Missions — Resigns
from Madison Avenue Church.
The Rev. Dr Howard A^ne-nr Johnston has re
signed the pastorate ot the Madison Avenue Pres
byterian Church, to visit the Presbyterian missions
in Asia as a representative of the General Assem
bly's evangelistic committee. The resignation, which
was announced on Wednesday evening, is to take
effect next Fimimer. Dr. John Bancroft Devlns
last year made a trip around the world, and
brought hack a request from many missionaries for
some one to visit the mission fields and conduct
conferences for the missionaries. The General As
sembly's evangelistic committee invited Dr. John
ston to accept this cortimiseion. Dr. Johnston
plans to begin In Japan next August or September,
and to move through Asia, completing his Journey
in gyria. Probably an absence of fourteen or fifteen
month?' wi!l be involved. It seemed to Dr. Johnston
that this was too !ongr a time to recjue«t the church
to grant a leave of absence for. with recognized
uncertainties in the future. Dr. Johnston came to
the Madison Avenue Church in January, 1899.
The Animal Had Been Downcast Ever Since
Their Separation.
Mounted Patrolman George T. Ferguson has been
transferred from the City Hail mounted squad to
the Central Park station, and Wyck, his old horse,
from the Columbia-aye. pquad to the Park squad,
and now both horse and rider are remarkably
grateful to Commissioner McAdoo.
Several days ago Captain •'Steve" O'Brien and
the Commissioner were inspecting: the new traffic
arrangements at Columbus Circle when th* Com
missioner noticed the dejected appearance of
Wyck, the prize horse of the department. Captain
O'Brien explained that Wyck had been downcast
and not worth a penny since he had been separated
from Ferguson. The next day the Commissioner
sew Fercu9on and found that he felt keenly the
losr of Wyck, whom he had ridden for years and
taught to answer "yes" or •"no" to questions, make
faces indicative of sorrow, rage or anger, and half
a dozen other tricks.
Sentiment does not often play any part in the
workings of the police department, but when the
Commissioner learned of the attachment between
.frerguEon and Wyck ho ordered both transferred
to the Central Park squad
Advocates of Seaside Resort at Far Rock
away to Talk to Board of Estimate.
Advocates 01 a great seaside park will gather
in forco at 10:30 a. m. to-day at a hearing- on the
subject before the Board of Estimate. J. G.
Fhelps Stokes. Charles Sprague Smith, the Rev.
Dr. R. s. Mac Arthur, R. Fulton Cutting and
others are expected to be present to argue for the
park. It will be pointed out that the constantly
improving transportation facilities will make the
trip to Rockaway easy to take. It is proposed
to put up a great bathing reservation on the plan
of the Revere and Nantasket beaches, near Bos
The Civic Club of the East Sid", which has been
agitating the project for the park, held a special
meeting last night, and a committee was appointed
to submit a petition to th« Board of Estimate
to-day. Charles B. Stover, president of the Play
grounds Society and secretary of the Civic Club,
said afterward:
The young penile of the East Side, have free
baths, but they need more than anything else a
big recreation ground where they can have athletic
giuiies. boating, swimming and other exercises for
oevelnring the body. For a few years back the
East Side boys and girls have shown a tendency
in this direction, and it ought to be encouraged
The- proposed Far Rockaway park will mean much
to the East aider? when the third East River
bridge is constructed. Tho new bridge will assure
them quick transit to Far Rockaway

The Grand Prize
Standard Dictionary
(Special Despatch to New York Tribune.)
St. Louis, Oct. 24, 1904. — The World's Fair Judges to-day gave Grand
Prize (highest award) to Funk & W agnails Company for their Standard
Dictionary, and Gold Medal for their Literary Digest and reference works.
Was the Standard awarded a Gold Medal at the Paris Exposition — the
highest award made to a Dictionary?
fWI Xi Wk B Was it awarded two medals at the Pan-American Exposition?
nH fig Waff the President of France present a Sevres vase to its publishers ?
gfLjBH m&B £^ * nc Sultan of Turkey confer a decoration in its honor ?

&^j H| y| Have the Mikado of Japan, the Czar of Russia, the Emperor of Germany,
Bis US 69 the President of the United States, and nearly all the other great
rulers of the world procured it?
Is it authority m departments of the United States Government?
Why have over 100,000 people in Near York City alone bought it?
Why do the professors in all the great universities and colleges proclaim its superiority?
Because THE STANDARD has the largest vocabu
lary, containing nearly 100,000 more terms than any
other dictionary; nearly 200,000 more than any other volume
dictionary. Needless terms have been excluded.
The Sun, New Tork: "A« regards Its vocabulary, this dictionary
far surpasses all of its rivals."
The .\>!i..Ma*-iim. London, England: "Its vocabulary is th» most

Because IT IS THE MOST convenient dictionary.
The most common meaning of the word is given first,

University of Chicago, Prof. W. C. Wilkinson: "It ls a magnifi

editors have produced the Standard Dictionary."
Because IT EXCELS IN number and exactness of
QUOTATIONS. The quotations used to verify or il
luptrate *the meanings of words are exactly located. Not only in
each instance ls the name of the author given, but also the book, the
page, and the edition are Indicated. In prose quotations the name of
the publisher of the book and the edition from which the quotation
is taken are indicated by a simple system of abbreviation. "Stock"
dictionary quotations — that is. those which have done service so
long in dictionaries — have been avoided. Over 500 readers in differ

to this important feature.

Ileiv is a book made of paper and
ink like any other book — but differ
ent. Who shall say wherein the dif
ference lies? Who can tell just why
this book lias been run away with by
the public, why the presses arc kept
continuously busy over it, why the
libraries cannot supply their patrons,
nor bookltOFei keep it sufficiently in
stock.' The fact that it is a great
story of a man and a woman with red
blood in their veins does not entirely
answer the question — there is more
than that to it. Other novels lan

When it was running serially peo
ple kept writing to the editor begging
for advance proofs, one man pleading
that he had heart disease and feared
he might die before it came to a close.
A reader of the English Blackwood's
for sixty years says: **Not since I
waited feverishly for "Monte Cristo'
to appear have I been so excited by a
story. And Mrs. Thurston has given
me what Dumas did not — a perpet
ually increasing wonder as to how the
adventure is to end."
The New York Evening Mail says
of the novel:
'This Is a story of a strong man and a strong
woman and their high-handed grasping for
happiness In the face of the moral law. The
woman, magnificent In her lov?, rises above
considerations of convention*, above f>ar. abov*
conscience. Circumstances give her the right
to follow the dictates of an overwhelming pas
sion. ... It •will take ranlt with the few
rtally good books."
Already in England and in
America the book is being made into
a play, and France and Germany
have begun translating it.
