Maxim Gorky's occupation during his recent
Imprisonment was the writing of a comedy. He
waa denied writing materials during tho first
few flaya. but the protest of his wife brought a
supply of them. He bad been for some time
thinking about a play, the ground-tone of which,
cays a correspondent of "The London Tele
graph," had been sombre:
But in the chilly, narrow fortress cell the back
ground of the drama became more ample, ana ills
tense of the humorous was sharpened. It was ln
this mood that M. Gorky worked out the characters
«f his new play. securing effects which set him
shaking with laughter when lie read them over
in the twilight of hie cell, in six days the drama
was completed, and received the title. Children
of the Sun." As his bed in the ceil was screwed to
the epot, and the table wus aJeo screwed, and as
the space betwten ; •in was considerable, the
prisoner had to atrrtch his hands and crane his
xieck. bo as to write upon his table while using
the bed as a chair.
The author of "Typhoon"' is said to have a
rival in the person of Mr. Edward Noble, about
whose f.rst look, "Tne Kdge of Circumstance,"
ihe Knplish reviewers have been growing en
thusiastic. The riutiior of this sea Btory roamed
about the world in sh'ps fr>r some sixteen years.
He had to sf-ek a i üblisher for each one of

In his seventy-eighth year M. Leopold De
lis! i has been retired from the .chief librarian-
Fhip at the liibliotheque NaUonale. much to the
indignation ol rrciic'nnitn who appreciate the
services he has rendered to the famous institu
tion. In the current number of •'The Academy"
tb* 6tory of a piece of detective work which he
once carried through in England is thus related:
A certain Count Übri had, in the reign of Louis
Philippe, been made inspector general of French
public libraries, and had Stolen rare books and
precious manuscripts right and left. His princi
pal abstractions were from the liibllotheque Na
tion?::e. and M. Delisle was allotted the task of

Then M. D"!isle entered upon negotiations for
the restoration of the booty. The British Museum

more difficult to deal with. M. l>elisle they said

had to devise a moan* of raising it. He did this
by selling -to the German Emperor an old nnanu

which the !'.mp-r..r was particularly anxious to
present to that great collector of such curiosities,

Two new volumes have been published in "The
T.ewnes's Art Library," issued in this country
by Frederick Warne & Co. One is devoted to the
work of the late George Frederick Watts, the
other to the work of Van Dyck. A new method
Is adopted in the text dealing with the first of
these painters. A brief biographical sketch is
contributed by Mr. \V. K. Weet. and this is fol
lowed by a translation of the eesay contributed
to the "Xuova Antologia," by R. Pantini. The
Italian critic •writes with the warmest sympa
thy, and is, indeed, es enthusiastic as even the
most exacting of the painter's countrymen
could desire. The usual generous sheaf of fine
full page halftones Included a number of things
which have not hitherto been accessible in such
inexpensive form. We note a few comparatively
unfamiliar things in the Van Dyck also. The
photogravure frontispiece in this caee Is from
the brilliant equestrian portrait of Thomas of
Savoy in tha Royal Gallery at Turin. Mr. Hugh
Stokes writes th« introduction, and supplies a
list of the principal works of the master in the
puSlJc gslleries of the world.

Here is one of Mr. Kipling's literary opinions,
as communicated to the Frenchman:

the little handbook. "Concerning Genealogies,"
just issued by the Grafton Press, and written
by Us own genealogical and biographical Ex
peit, Mr. Frank Allaben. may justly be said to
311 a long felt want. To be sure, it is somewhat
*>i a reciprocal want, and the reader is con
*tantly Impressed with the facilities offered by
the Grafton Preps and Its Expert to aid in the
search, and also to assist the eearcher In assort
ing his game v.hen found and captured. But the
volume is so entertainingly written and so full
of wiee suggestion, perhaps even in its self
recommendations, that It makes what is usually
considered a dry an.l uninteresting labor as-

Mr. Allaben inclines to look with disfavor on
the usual method of compiling American
genealogical works, which he terms the "Clan"
eystem. the purpose of which is to assemble
in one book all the known descendants of a
certain ancestor, or, perhaps, only the male
descendants who are bearers of the family
surname. The head of the clan is generally the
■■* American immigrant, and the present day
<2eJver in family lore in lost in a crowd of cousins
of all degrees. In number like unto the sands
of the washort. The author recommends rather
what he calls the "Grafton" plan, by which the
explorer, starting with himself, builds up his
genealopy through the preceding generations
through parents, grandparents, great-grand
parents and parents yet more great and grand
until he has constructed an inverted pyramid'
with a base consisting of miny original Ameri
can immigrants and excursionists, of which he
himself is the apex, the focus of all their grand
ness and greatness. In this way he may dis
regard entirely those of his family of his own
generation who may not be either agreeable or
interesting, may even be detrimental, and con
fine his investigations to those who are strictly
ancestors, and *ho. although they may have
been disagreeable, uninteresting or detrimental,
are at least dead.
A volume which does on a small scale for Slam
what Mr. Stead 1 * book, "Japan by the Japan
ese," *<•?* £w Japan, has just been issued by
G.,P; Steam's Sons under the title, of "The
Kingdom of Slam." lie chapters nre written by
various hlgrh otßoei3 of the Siamese (fovernment,
and the work is edited by A. Cecil C» "ter. M. A.,
secretary general of the Siamese Royal Com
mission to the St. Louis Exposition, under whose
auspices the book is published. As Is almost
inevitable in a work prepared In this manner,
the Information, though valuable, is rather of
the encyclopeedic order, and necessarily one Bided
in its point of view. One gets little impres
sion of the picturesqueness of the country and
its people, except, indeed, from the photographs
wiLh which the volume is illustrated, which are
abundant and excellent. The Siamese are a
highly civilized people, the proportion of Illit
eracy among the men being relatively small,
though one of the writers admits that "from a
literary point of view the women are badly edu
cated," ntlvely adding-, "but this is more than |
balanced by their native shrewdness." The Klne ;
is a rul«r of enlightened views and I* rapidly
adopting European methods in the various lines
of national and commercial activity or adapting
them to suit native customs and requirements.
Tea gTows wild and is cultivated to a small
extent, though it Is not used as a beverage, but
is pickled instead. After th« loaves have been
plucked and dried they are steamed, to remove
the tannin nnd glucose, and are then thrown
into small pits end weighted down, where they
ferment. "This product, known as mieng-, 13 i
rolled into balls, and one of these balls Is held
In the hollow of the cheek until the soluble con- i
stituents of the tea have been extracted," ihe
effect on the observer being that of a nation
uniformly afflicted with the toothache, the ball I
of mieng making a hu^e swelling on one side I
of the face.
The army is organized and drilled on th •
oughly modern lines, the oncers receiving a
preliminary education at the Royal Military
College, while three schools are maintained for
the training of non-commissionec officers. Mili
tary service is compulsory, with cert&in liberal
exemptions, but is rendered as little Irksome as
possible by a regional system of enlistment.
Bjr this means the rank and tile enjoy the ad
vantage of performing their military duties near
their homes and can return to the labor of the
fields or their customary occupations during the
periods in which their presence is not required
with the colors.
Bangkok, the capital, is the terminus of four

One of the most striking features of the judi
cial system of the country, according to tlfe
judicial adviser to the King, is the facility and
cheapness of appeal and the systematic way in
which it ie made use of by litigants. He says:
When this department was first established the
Minister rightly considered that as most of the
judges were new and untried men, and generally
youthful, appeal should be made as easy aa possi
ble. Appeal by pout from the provinces Is the re
sult. It costs only 2Va per cent on the amount in
volved, and in criminal cases nothing at all. It Is
not necessary to appear personally before the ap
peal court nor to engage counsel. The conse
qu/yice is that the appeal courts are overwhelmed
with work. Last year the two divisions of tho
appeal courts disposed of 3,100 cases, of which. 414
were arrears from the previous year. Qf these- ap
peals 1,175 were sent up to the Supreme Court of

late Mahlon Sands, of New-York, has written
the following four lines, which he thinks ought
to embody the present .feeling of "America to
England" :
America's proud of thee, thought of thee, looked
to thee,
When Europe, except the», for Spain's cause did
The whole world she'd meet with thee, fight with
thee, beat with thee,
Blood's thicker than water, dear England, onca

New-York police. The check has been recovered.
Bishop Potter has decided to postpone his Euro

gone abroad in February, and all arrangements had
been made for his sailing at that tlm-s.
'I had purposed to visit certain European coun

be visited properly only in the winter. However, I
am in good health now, and the postponement from
time to time of my original plans has decided me
to wait until the autumn before going abroad."

The Hotel St. Margaret, in West 47th-st., Changes Hands — Century
Realty Company Sells Clark Parcel at 49th-st. and Broadway.
The National Arts Club, which owns ai.d oceO>
pies No. 37 West 34t1?-et.. yesterday bought, through
Ashforth & Co., of We3t 42d-st.. the S;imuul J.

The buyer will convert tho premises Into a club
and studio building by er^ctlnK o studio annex to
the present structure. It will also continue to oc
mipy Its present home. It was said la*t r'?ht
that this project of the Arts Club is duo to a large
increase ln the membership of the organization
and a widening of the scope of Its work.
Mr. Tilden first bought No. 15 Gramercy Park,
and in 1874 he puioha-ed No. 14. He spent about
$600,000 in remodelling the houses, the alterations to
the d'nlns room alone, finished in gilt, costing
The Improvements carried out by Mr. Tilden were
planned with on eye to political contingencies.
Nos. 14 and 15 Gramcrcy Park. It was bought yesterday by the National Arts Club through Ashforth
& Co.. of West 42d-st.
While the two structures were converted into one
building, they were so remodelled that they could
easily be transformed again Into separate houses.
The two front entrances were not altered. On« was
for everyday use; the other was occasionally found
serviceable at political gatherings. Mr. Tilden oc
cupied the premises during the larger part of his
political life, and there scores of important political
conferences took place.
The house is a four story and basement dwelling
about 100 feet west of Irving Place. It ha.-* a front
age of 60 feet in Gramercy Park. The depth of the
plot is IS4 feet.
Mr. Til Sen purchased Greystone in 1879. but con
tinued to make the Gramercy Park house his home
until 1881. It was generally thought that, on his
death, the old house would become the head
quarters of the Txlden Library. Instead, however,
It became the office of the Tilden trust, owing to
the litigation over the Tilden will. In Tilden's day
the Gramercy Park section was one of New- York's
choicest residential districts. Among hi distin
guished neighbors were David Dudley Field, Cyrus
w. Field. Peter Cooper and Abram S. Hewitt. At
present the house is unoccupied.
